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


So Amazon matched Steam's Square Enix Catalog daily Sale on the latest Hitman. Fantastic. Choices are good. Too bad you can't use a coupon with it.

If anyone happens to have an extra coupon code, I'm looking desperately (and getting sabotaged by my browser).

They're not codes this year. The coupons/credits are tied to each person's account.

So if you have one, it should show up on the checkout page.

Unless it's 91% off, it isn't good enough. ;)

If anyone wants me to buy hitman for 17 bucks from amazon I could do that and you could pay me in paypal (I need paypal and have a leftover balance from a gc)

Well, that's it. All 14 of my EC coupons are gone (though I did use 1/2 of them for gifts of "free" Hotline Miami to give to all those on my friends list that didn't have it). But still. I didn't think it would be done. I didn't try and find excuses to get them either (buying cheap DLC just for the coupon). I bought things I actually wanted and didn't have. It is worth noting that when something was price matched at Amazon, I would buy it at Amazon instead because it came with the EC coupon. The last 2 Microsoft Bundles I bought to trade for other games I wanted in the Steam Group Trading Thread.

@Tony here's some feedback on the EC coupons for you. First list is what I bought that came with the coupons, second list is what the respective coupon was spent on. I didn't actively hunt for coupons, so the fact that I wound up with 14, speaks to the strength of the deals themselves.

That isn't the EC credit then. Likely a publisher's (non-2K) credit.

I don't have the game, but this thread on NEOGaf seems to resolve the issue: http://www.google.co...1oYqZ_xcu6XlKhg

one of these apparently works in your cfg...
C:\Users\<your acc>\Documents\Syndicate\environment.cfg

XR_FLARES 0
XR_ZFOG 0
XR_EFFECTMODELS 0

or

XR_FLARES=0
XR_ZFOG=0
XR_EFFECTMODELS=0

or

BLOOM FIX:

ENHANCED QUALITY:

enter xr_adaptivequalitymode 3
enter xr_fxaa 3
enter xr_postaa 3
enter xr_ssao 2
enter xr_ssaogain 0.5
KNOWN ISSUES:
although the heavy bloom will be fixed, the screen will darken when running.

also: SynAdvCFG

That's all I know until someone who owns the game and has tried these fixes can answer for you.

This is the Amazon PC Digital Download thread. Tony does PC Digital Downloads. Try hitting the "tell us about a lower price" link on the Amazon product page.


Thanks guys. I should have remembered that.....

Cheers.

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:


Where do I get that Trash Day coupon?

Sane Brain: "No more game purchases until you finish some of your backlog"
Game Hoarder Brain: "Sounds good"
Amazon PCDD: "I disagree..."


My mind works that way as well lol

I tried all of those when I played and the bloom was the only one I kept because the rest made my system run slow. It does work though.

If anyone has a spare EC coup, I'd love a cheap MS pack.

Also, are any of the games GFWL?

How is Sleeping Dogs not a game the editor would choose? Come on Tony, do what's right!

I picked up the MS Arcade/Indie pack. Awesome deal Tony thanks for coming through once again. :)

By my calculations, I have one coupon left.

Well that makes the EC term a bit misleading, oh well.
