Uplay was recently updated to include key activation so as long as it has a key and is an Uplay title, I would think so.

Yes, they added product activation to the Uplay client but the I Am Alive key I got from Amazon doesn't work with it.

Bah there's no option to search the thread anymore. :(


It's there, just type your search into the search bar at the top of the page while you're in the thread. There's a "this topic" search type.

Totally missed that post sorry. 

I got a bit sidetrack and instead of making an avatar made a Borderlands themed background lol, nothing special though.

Btw, those 2 who are dressed up look great, are they hired by Gearbox for some promo I take it? The sheriff is super cute, her smile is awesome  :oops:

 

Anyways, here is the background, I'll mess around doing an avatar tomorrow probably :P

Oh, that's awesome. :D

 

We need one like that straight-up for Tony, too. ;)

If Tony puts up some good pics of him I'll try and think of one for him as well.

 

I wanted to put the Scrooge McDuck moneybin in the Paddington one but it just didn't flow well in anyway. I did use a $100 bill through to color/texture the Laughing to the Bank part, you can see the 100 in ank in Bank :D and Paddington name is the 2 tones of green used on the $100 bill as well, just modified a bit for better contrast.

Just bought Burnout Paradise, is it usually quicker to download from Amazon or Origin?

How long is the leftover 2k credit from bioshock infinite good for? And it isn't applying to the borderlands bundleganza for me, not sure if that's intentional.

 

I'd like to put it towards The Bureau if it's put up for PCDD pre order if possible though.

I usually get high speed downloads from origin, higher than steam anyways.

Make sure you choose a Steam server that's close to you from the Steam client settings. Haven't compared both platforms, but definitely better experimenting for the best server speed you get as the default option is usually a weird choice imo.

 

As for Burnout, not sure if you could even play it without downloading it from Origin in this case, but I'm not entirely sure. I haven't really used amazon downloads much so far I admit, lol. At least they save traffic because of me.

Amazon very seldom has good download speeds. If you have a choice not to download from Amazon, take it.

Yeah, it took me forever to DL ARMA II Combined Ops from Amazon.  It's one of the few big games I've bought on amazon with no alternate DL option.  That said, any older EA game (before stuff like DS3, BF3, Sim City) can be DLed directly from Amazon without involving Origin so that's a nice option if you want it.

I totally forgot that I had gift card money on Amazon, so I decided to splurge on some Ubisoft titles.  Picked up World in Conflict: Complete for $2.49, Assassin's Creed 1 for $4.99, and Assassin's Creed 2 for $4.99.  All three had been on my wish list for a while.  Was also looking at I Am Alive, but I couldn't pull the trigger... perhaps on the Steam sale if I have any card money left over.

 

As an addendum, only AC2 redeemed on Uplay.  WiC has an activation code but uses the Amazon downloader; its code doesn't work on Uplay, for some reason.  AC1 seems to be DRM-free (no code).

Hey there, just wondering if anyone has had this issue with Amazon lately but;

 

I'm unable to see the "View Product Key" button anymore for any of my digital downloads. What happens instead is that any and all games I buy from Amazon come with that Key 'unlocked/shown' in a sense, and since I do Giveaways, I'm not sure if the game I've bought has already has it's Key used after a while since it's already being 'shown.' No real way in knowing unless I try to activate the Key which...well makes the Giveaway not happen.

 

To those of you whom are going to be telling me to 'write the CD key down' somewhere instead, I'd just like to point out that this hasn't happened before whilst using Amazon for my purchases, and although it is a good alternative, I would rather just have it be that way in my Games Library than to alter the method of keeping that Key 'hidden/unused.'

I like how it tells me the key straight after paying: I no longer have to navigate to the digital library page.

Hard to say. I've had fine speeds before, but I don't recall ever getting over 1MBps. Downloading Far Cry 2 was a massive pain, I had to leave it on overnight to get it done.

YMMV of course. I usually get under 500kbps...

On the contrary:

- Having to navigate to your digital library page and click to reveal the key is a waste of time. Not liking this ⇒ you like wasting time.

- Steam not giving tradeable (or at least giftable) of already-owned games when you activate a pack is a waste of money. Liking this ⇒ you like wasting money.

- Since we all know that time = money (⇒ wasting time = wasting money) ; not liking how Amazon now shows you the key without needing to navigate to the digital library page is akin to liking how Steam trashes those additional copies that we should be receiving.

Having to manually speadsheet/track which Amazon keys you have/haven't redeemed takes far more time than clicking a button.  So by your time=money metric, maybe you should reconsider your stance.  I mean sure, it's all fine and dandy for games you don't own, but when you wind up with dups...

For someone who buys no duplicates, and activates every key EXACTLY as they get it... the new system is fine. For the rest of us, not so much.

Does it still reveal all keys if I reveal one? I'm going to heavily reconsider buying on Amazon unless that's fixed. I've got a lot of leftover keys unrevealed from cheap bundles over the last year and there's no way in hell I'm going to go back and track and spreadsheet them all.
