Picked up the Microsoft Bundle, got all the keys and activated on steam- no problem.

I'd have to say the winter sales award for pc downloads goes to amazon this year for sure. Before editor's choice deals rolled out, there were some great deals and after getting a few coupons, many of the editor's choice bundles were even better.

Thanks for your hard work and keep up the good work, Tony!(and others are amazon)

Umm there's two AOE III Complete Collection. One has Steam DRM. What's the other one?

Best deal ever. That, and Viva Pinata for a dime each.



I don't understand how I missed Viva Pinata. I blame SlickDeals.

Even though I bought AoE back when it was 10 cents, I'm still tempted to pay $5 for a Steam version. What is wrong with me?



I hear you. I'm in the same boat. Heck, I checked earlier today, and I have even had AoE 3 Complete installed on this computer since then... but GFWL-free/DRM-free on steam :drool: (forgetting the fact that I haven't played it).

O.o


Looks like you had a few cents left over from a prior coupon.

If that was true, why didn't it reflect in the total? I don't care either way, but glitchy totals after the fact make me nervous.

It's a little late, but unless I'm more addled than I think, that total looks right?

$9.99 - $0.07 - $4.93 = $4.99

There's a maximum of $5 from that coupon applied to each order, starting with any partial ones you have left and then using a new one for the remainder.

Aah, and just like dealing with Beth Pack night... it seems so many people give up so easily. My advise from then still applies, "Reload harder!" ;)

For Tony's information:

Purchased very quickly after the sale went live during the mad rush.

As expected from the previous amazing sale, Steam keys took several minutes to appear in my account, which is why people saying 'no keys!' didn't really worry me.

When the 'view product key' finally appeared in my Games & Software Library, I clicked to view my steam key which made all the 'view product key' buttons disappear. A page refresh made them reappear and my now revealed steam key visable. Each key I tried to view made me have to refresh the page to get the 'view product key' to reappear for the other games.

It really just seems that when the server is overloaded it takes a while for the keys to show up, and sometimes you have to refresh your account page a few times to view your keys. Note: I've only see this happen during these mad rushes.

Just so you know so you don't have to worry too much next time.

Is AOE3 accessible for someone who isn't a big strategy gamer? It looks like it could be fun, but also tedious. Any opinions would be welcome.

I know Amazon will give me the keys. I wasn't sure about Gamersgate if I didn't stay up half the night to get them all :P

If you try to buy the Crysis Max Max pack, you'll see your usual $5.00 EC credit, then an extra $0.01 EC credit. Don't worry, Amazon isn't stealing your pennies.

Mine did that. If you got the Microsoft pack, they're only steam keys, I believe, and the downloader simply looks up your steam key and puts it in a document. If you don't have the 'view product key' button yet, the downloader fails because it can't do the lookup. I know my downloaded failed too before the steam keys were available on my account page.

Wait a few minutes and see if the product keys show up on your account page. I had to wait several minutes for mine to appear. The servers are working hard!

Here's a little tip, when you finally get the page to show the yellow "Get Product Key" button, click all 5 of them before the page reloads, then the next time it successfully pulls up, all 5 keys will be showing. Less likely to disappear when trying to show another code. (I think it was Severose that taught me that).

Apparently, if you are outside the US, refreshing the page won't work.


It worked for me and I'm in New Zealand.

Is the People's Republic of Berkeley inside or outside of the US?
