Amazing bundle, I'm happy I didn't jump on Mark of the Ninja when it was 7.50 on Steam.

I'm not sure I would play Iron Brigade as I already have quite a few tower defense games and have been looking for Hinterland. Does that seem like a fair trade (found someone with a key in the Trade/Buy thread)? Or is there something unique about Iron Brigade that makes it a keeper?


Add me on Steam. I have Iron Brigade, but nobody I know has it.

Can someone purchase the MS bundle for me? Ran out of coupons, I'm willing to give you 6.50$.

Deadlight and Mark of the Ninja only use Steam and have Steam Achievements.
Toy Soldiers has the option to launch as Steamworks or GFWL.
Iron Brigade and ITSP both use GFWL only.

GFWL = Xbox Achievements.

All the games are Steam Keys from Amazon and therefore you need Steam to play them even if they use GFWL.

Bought the M$ Indie Bundle earlier, haven't downloaded the games yet, but I'll get around to it soon. Thanks Tony! Hope you're managing those personal issues you talked about well and things are looking up for you. <3.

Did they replace your $5 coupon? If so, just re-buy the bundle.


I'm not sure. I bought 2 bundles, and redeemed a set of keys. The set of keys that disappeared was the one I redeemed.

I just don't want a ding for it, since I specifically said that I was charged the wrong value from what the page showed. Now that I think about it, it's the second time one of these promos did this to me.

Thanks for that answer. I probably shouldn't let something like achievements stop me from this kind of deal though!

So Hitman Absolution is price matched to Steam at $16.99 now, at least for the next 5 hours.

It's not on the EC list, but if you have some extra Amazon credit (I had $5 from pre-ordering The Cave that has to be used by 3/15) then it can be a decent deal.

I know everyone is all 'the price is dropping like a rock' yadda yadda but at $12 for me after the $5 credit (again, from The Cave; not EC) I'm fine with it. I don't see it going significantly cheaper than that for a while. It would pretty much have to have the retail lowered to $30 and be on a 75% off sale to be a whole lot cheaper than what I got it for.

Also note that the regular edition only is price matched at this point. The Professional Edition is still full price.

@Motoki
Oh, Hitman: Ab PC is certaintly worth $12, IMHO.

It took me like 32 hours to get through the SP Campaign.
Lots of reloading; dying; and even restarting levels. And that's even on NORMAL here!

MP portion (Contracts Mode) is pretty cool, as well.

Hitman: Ab is definitely quite a bit of a different beast than previous games like Hitman: Silent Assassin + Blood Money.

Welcome back Motoki and already tempting me to add more games I don't need right now with the backlog. I really want Far Cry 3 for this price because it has been getting great reviews from sites and CAGs. I will see if I can resist. Also Tony thanks for the pricematch and for the Microsoft Indie Bundle that I bought today.

For $12 I would definitely buy it. It's more than 75% off.
If EC coupons worked on Hitman Absolution... drool: I have a coupon left.

So I emailed customer service about my incorrectly charged $64.95 Microsoft bundle asking for the difference, and they refunded me my whole order and took my keys. *sigh*


Ugh, what now? You already activated the keys?

Well, we've got 4 days. Still got a couple coupons myself.
Clearly the sale needs to end with a bang and redo the glitch sales as official ones and throw in a couple more.

Yes, because like I said, I wanted the refund of the difference (~$60), not a refund on the entire bundle.

If anyone would like a $15 game on amazon, I will buy it in exchange for the same price in paypal. I need paypal funds buy still have amazon gc left over. Or, I can buy something else it dosn't have to be a game. Pm me if you are interested.

I think from here on out we ignore this question. People asking have clearly ignored the last 20 pages where it has been asked at least once per page.
Plus, if they are asking right now they almost assuredly don't have 1 so it's no loss anyway

Hitman: Absolution really tried to do A LOT.

It tries to be a combo of a few different titles:
SC: Conviction -> some linear levels w/ really one way out. (there's actually a good deal of these in this game); NEW Mark and Execute skill (can only be used on some difficulties).
previous Hitman titles -> some levels, you explore big-as-can-be level w/ numerous ways to kill your main targets and numerous escapes.
Batman: Arkham Asylum + City -> One of your "Instinct" skills can let you see enemies' outlined actually through walls ((can only be used on some difficulties). Unlike Batman, you can actually see even their AI path that they will run (can only be used on some difficulties).

Hitman: Ab actually has the actual best story & characters in a Hitman title so far, if you ask me. Though, since Hitman: Ab stays entirely in the USA, it doesn't really have the globe-trotting aspect & exotic different locales that you could find constantly in previous Hitman games have.

Also, the Notoriety System and Buying/Upgrading of Equipment that were in Blood Money are nowhere to be found in Hitman: Ab's SP Campaign portion.

First off, thanks Tony and Amazon for these wonderful sales from practically mid-November till now. Some fantastic work you guys did for us and speaking for myself, I definitely appreciate it.

Second, I just want clarification on the MS arcade bundle. Its definitely only Steam drm right and no other? I read the OP, the last 10-12 hours of this thread and Amazon's pages and didn't see anything. Only reason I ask is a week or so ago there was a post I read saying these games would have GFWL also.

Probably gonna buy it anyways but just want to know what I'm gonna have to end up doing if it is GFWL since I've never used it so far but heard the horror stories.

Thanks in advance :).

Sold. I really liked the games you referenced and having strong story components are a plus in my book. The detractors you mention, while fans probably feel stronger about them, are issues that never hooked me in the first place, so no loss there for me. Thanks!
