Not sure if anyone replied to this (others have asked). There are two versions of AOE III Complete Collection. One has Steam DRM. Is the other one GFWL ? Or DRM free? (doesnt say)

As I've said and linked multiple times, the steam version of AoE 3 GFWL-free/DRM-free.

Used my last coupon (I only had three coupons) on the Microsoft bundle.

Same situation as me. I activated Iron Brigade. Traded Deadlight + ITSP + Toy Soldiers for Chivalry, and Mark of the Ninja for Don't Starve.

Now I need to find someone with a coupon for another bundle so I can activate Mark of the Ninja lol

Great bundle!

He's asking about the DRM on the non-steam version.

His assumption is wrong. I'm interpreting that he wants a DRM-free version.

According to a MS rep here.

Just to clarify, Age of Empires 3 does not use GFWL at all. There are no steam or LIVE achievements on the game, and there is no DRM to limit installations / activations.



I believe the non-steam version on Amazon has GFWL (my non-steam version has GFWL).

Tony,

Not necessarily for a sale, but any chances of trying to get some of the older games from Activision/Blizzard for DD? I'd personally love getting to play Warcraft 2 again specifically.

The Fable pack is waiting on DLC Keys. (And I'm assuming the MS people responsible for that don't work weekends.)

Mate,
Not to be picky but Steam is a DRM. Any way i know Steam version has Steam DRM (thanks for confirming it has no GFWL on that version). What i was after is whether the non Steam one has GFWL or not since it doesn't state on the gamepage whether it does or not.

I've never seen and Actilizzard (Activaision+Blizzard) games for digital download outside of the Blizzard Store. They seem to want to keep middlemen out of their profits. I wouldn't get your hopes up. I've never need Warcraft 2 digital. Fortunately it's DOS, so getting it to run in DOSbox shouldn't be too much trouble.

Aside from vacillating over the upcoming Burning Hot Bundle solely for Hot Pursuit (since I already have BP:TUB), I think my 2012-2013 Holiday purchasing is finally over (barring some ridiculous surprise in the next 4 days). I now have roughly 4-5 months to start working on the backlog, avoid impulse buys and save some funds to prep for the summer sales. In short...thanks Tony and Amazon!

Also,

I'd highly recommend NFS:HP (2010). It's the best NFS entry in recent years.

Worry, it's not over, all the Valentine's themed indie bundles are on the Horizon. :lol:

Cool, I'll get it on your recommend. I should have several credits left over anyway.

Valentine's...no, no, no, I'm not being suckered into buying in on EVERY "holiday" themed sale. That's how they get you. Pretty soon you're lobotomized into thinking 5% off on Trash Day is a miraculous deal. :whee:

I'm waiting on this answer too. I would probably buy a DRM free version (probably 2 copies) over the Steam one.

It's like EA making some of their games exclusive to Origin. If you have your own method of distributing that's effective, why would you invite more hands into the cookie jar.

Bah I thought I had one more $5 credit for the microsoft package but I must have been wrong. Does Amazon make it difficult to track digital credits on purpose? It's not just games, it's hard to figure out if you have credit for mp3s and videos too.

Great work on the MS bundle, AOEIII and Fable:TLC Tony.

I still have a fair few $5 credits to chew through what else should my wallet be in fear of?

On purpose? Almost certainly not. I think they just aren't very good at it. Tony has said before that not having the "Check credit" page linked to the DVG portion of the site is intentional since it's so misleading. However I get the impression that that whole section of Amazon.com real estate is completely out of Tony's domain so there's not much he can do beyond registering a polite suggestion at staff meetings and dreaming of brighter days.

I'm not sure if it has already been posted but Hitman: Absolution is $16.99. Fantasic game at an amazing price.
