strangely, it doesn't currently show 11.99

p.s. take care, Tony


The 11.99 will be the sale price on those days...(without the EC coupon)

Thanks for the kind words guys, not trying to start a pity party here, just trying to keep you guys appraised of why I've not been around as much. Given all the churn and recent changes in the thread with new rules and such, I didn't want you guys to think I was throwing up my hands and walking away.

The timing has just been really bad lol.

Cheers,
Tony


I know none of us really know you outside of this thread, but I really hope things work out for you. Youve always been a pleasant fellow to talk with. Take care

Got a copy but thanks for the heads up on the upcoming deal Tony!

Thanks Ogedai :). I have met SOME of you outside of the thread :).

Also, if any of you are at Pax Prime or Pax East this year I'll be at both.

Lastly,

I wanted to feel you guys out on something. We recently launched this new Free to Play store. One of the things I'm trying to do is get more people checking out the free games we're carrying. One our partners, Firefly Studios, makes this F2P game called "Stronghold Kingdoms". I'm kicking around a promotional idea whereby you (the customer) would get a free, DRM free copy of Stronghold HD (the original Stronghold re-made). Does that sound compelling? Again, there's no cost here, we'd give you the game just for linking your account with Stronghold Kingdoms on Amazon.com. Thoughts?

Cheers,
Tony

I think it's an intriguing idea. I'd check it out just to see.

Tony, when the dust has settled and after you've had time to relax, it would be great if you could see if you can get Amazon to carry Puzzle Quest 2.

According to Steamgamesales, it hasn't been on sale on Steam in over 2 years and hasn't been on sale from any of the sites they track in over a year. I beat the first and I want PQ2, but I'm a CAG!

Hey guys,

Wanted to pop in and apologize for the lack of responses lately. I've had quite a bit going on in my life personally and professionally, that has kept me occupied outside of posting. To give you some context:

<details snipped>


Tony,

I have the utmost respect and admiration for your dedication to your job. But having said that, I hope that some of those issues (especially the family-related ones) will inspire you and Amazon to provide a healthy balance between What You Do and How You Live.

I appreciate the openness that you've brought to us DD consumers. But that openness requires time and effort, and I wonder if your superiors realize just how many hours you dedicate to your job. I'm just watching this thread (not following on reddit or Facebook or SA or Twitter), and I can see that you're putting in much more than 9-to-5 hours. It's commendable, but I worry that it's not sustainable.

Hopefully part of the review process you're engaged in will involve Amazon hiring some support staff, so that you can keep a healthy balance between your professional life and your personal life. It's the Pareto Principle at work: 80% of the communication you provide (upcoming deals, standard answers to standard questions, etc.) could be handled by such staff, freeing you up to handle the other 20%, spend more time working with publishers, and giving you more time to spend living a life outside of work.

tl;dr: Don't get burned out taking care of us greedy schmucks.

I find that interesting and might try it with that incentive. I think as an incentive it has merit since it broadens the enticement.

If you're looking to add more F2P games, Path of Exile will hit Open Beta in two days (and closed beta for almost a year). I put in 15-20 hours in the closed beta and I can say it has promise. The devs are 20-strong kiwi team, Grinding Gear Games.

I just asked someone on the team to hit them up. Also, no worries on asking me questions, don't feel bad about doing so lol. I just wanted you guys to have some context for why I might not be around as much in the immediate future.

I've checked through most of this thread, and there's still no more word on the Microsoft or Fable bundles, right?
Would it be possible to get this thing on sale again?

Hi, Tony. Could it be possible to have TERA on sale again as part of the EC list? I'd bought it last time if I had known it was going to become F2P. Thanks.

Take care of what matters, and don't worry about us. If we see you posting slower in the thread, we might actually be forced to play the games we've gotten deals on with all that time on our hands. All the best to you and yours.

Lol. Also, to answer your questions about GCs, did you pick up Max Payne 3 yet? That'll be on promo soon and might be a good candidate.

Cheers,

Any update on Max Payne 3? :)

I would definitely be into to that! I have been finding more and more HQ F2P games (oh abbreviations how I love thee.) Getting into another one with a free game offer is just icing.


Also I hope all goes well for you, feel free to ignore us if need be, trust me we have short attention spans. If it gets out of control I can jingle my keys around...they are shiny. :lol:

I think I may have already linked my Stronghold Kingdoms account for a different promotion, but, yes, I'd be down for a DRM-free copy of an HD remake of the original.

Also, to echo the others, best wishes to you and your family members, Tony. Hope everything turns out well.

As everyone else has already expressed, hope all goes well Tony. Everyone needs a balance with work, family and gaming!

Hope it isn't inappropriate to ask if there is a chance the Paradox bundles (particularly the 2 new bundles that haven't been repeats) will come back this month.
