Think amazon made a decision to be great to customers for awhile to get their rep up and their name out there as #1 after that they tried to recoup some of the money they obviously lost being so consumer friendly.


That's what I thought but if you look at the deals they've been running, a lot of them hardly sell at all. I think its a greater problem of Amazon losing sight of what their gaming customer's interests are. I have a hunch that the people leading Amazon games now aren't the same ones that were running it before. We have Tony who obviously is a gamer himself and engaged with the community and really knows what kind of games we're interested and it shows in Amazon's digital deals. It's not really Amazon selling out, more like they have people who have no idea what gamers like us are looking for.

Anyway, that's my two cents on Amazon. Basically I want a Tony for Amazon's non-digital stuff.

I'm guessing most of the games on the Gold Box is gonna be Halloween related.

I think Amazon is trying to transition and find new footing. They use to be awesome! Then many ups and downs, and for a while straight downhill. They seemed to be different all over, seriously making me think twice about them. Recently (like a week or two) they have been slowly heading in a good direction. Nowhere near what they were, but hopefully will keep moving in the right direction.

I'm not holding my breathe too much for this Gold Box deal...usually their best deals are on BF / CM.

What does surprise me is that my man Confoo got banned for some reason yet known (to me). :cry:

Hopefully it isn't permanent...he's actually a good dude.

I literally lol'd when I seen that Amazon is now offering Video credit.

Newegg is currently my go-to place for pre-orders for the major releases.

Amazon has done what big chain stores have always done/tried doing to small businesses: Corner the market by offering cheap deals until you drive your competition out of business, then raise prices.

I'm confused with the Tameriel history hint. Is that another elder scroll game?

Wild guess that first one is Risen 2.

Also, look at the banner - $10 off Hitman Absolution if you pre-order today - standard edition only.

When I google the Vacation from hell I got some hits with SSX. I could be wrong though.

Yeah second google came up with nothing. I think dead island is better choice. I think i need to get a few hours of sleep in.

Hoping on a good price for Sleeping Dogs. I got the platinum for it on a rental and really enjoyed it and I hear some DLC is coming out so it would be nice to own.

Good price on FIFA, but at this point wait for a $30 BF deal.
