No word yet, but we just followed up again.

Also update on MSFT, we just sent an email that basically reads: "Hey guys, we need to hear back tomorrow or we can't run the deal next week".

I'll let you know if/when we hear back.

Cheers,
Tony


Thanks for the update. I hope we hear good news.

Thanks for the honest feedback Tony.

I want to be wrong but unfortunately this gives me a bad feeling/impression the Arcade and Fable bundles are not going to happen. Getting them for $5 each (with coupon) is (or would be) something great!

Doesn't look like there's anything on sale on Origin for me. (Go EA :roll:)


Looks like their sale stuff is finally up for the US

arkham city goty - 10
bf3 - 12$
crysis - 10
crysis2 - 12
DAO ultimate - 10
TSW - 10, figured that might interest some people
BF bad company 2 - 7$, just throwing that one out there since some people were asking about it earlier

Theres a ton more, thats just from their 'popular' section

They've got Game of Thrones for $10, that's the only one that may interest me, but after Genesis I'm not sure if I can bite at that price. Have been hoping for a good sale on GoT for a while now though, just still have a bitter taste in my mouth from that crappy RTS.

Any coupon codes to combine with the Origin sale? I was hoping for a cheap BF3, and got my wish. :D

That's the second best price on TSW that I'm aware of. I just wish I could bring myself (and my internet connection) to play an MMO because it looks really fun.

From the OP:


1/22:

Steam Versions:

Far Cry 3 - Standard - $34.99 ($29.99 after coupon)
Far Cry 3 - Deluxe - $44.99 ($39.99 after coupon)



It was also the Gold Box event yesterday. And it's not "Amazon DRM", it's Ubi's Uplay.

I have a 10 dollar off coupon that they sent me, but I need to spend 19.99 so I guess now would be the time to cash it in.

You missed my post,

The month is winding down, so I have to ask yet again:

Tony, will there be any Assassin's Creed, Dead Space, Vanguard Princess, or Blade Kitten sales before the month is over?

Thank you. ;)


($10 for TSW is an awesome deal.)

And we now have official word on the THQ auction. THQ apparently sent a letter to their employees letting them know how it went down. You can read more about it here in this thread over on NeoGAF: http://www.neogaf.co...ad.php?t=509654

But here's the basic rundown:

Sega agreed to purchase Relic
Koch Media (AKA Deep Silver) agreed to purchase Volition and Metro
Crytek agreed to purchase Homefront
Take 2 agreed to purchase Evolve
Ubisoft agreed to purchase Montreal and South Park

Tony,

when you're pitching bundles/deals to Paradox, can you please also push for some of their other properties? I'm thinking something like pirates of black cove or a really good bundle around king arthur.

thanks

Reasonable in my eyes. Seems like the appropriate IPs went to the proper teams. Now I'll have to keep an eye out for the 'new-new' SR4 and Homefront 2.

I'm actually really excited to see what Crytek does with Homefront series.

Nothing really bothers me there. As long as South Park pre order still comes with a Steam key I don't really have an issue with Ubi.

Wonder who Take 2 will have to finish Evolve. Not much detail on the game, but has a lot of potential.

So with the THQ results, Darksiders franchise will either disappear or never go on sale again? If so, time to buy THQ pack now! There is a Darksiders pack on Gamefly but it is $20 by itself. Hopefully someone buys the IP eventually, I really enjoyed DS1 but haven't played much of DS2 yet.

Hmmm, not sure how I feel about that. I haven't played a WWE game of the recent years, but late PS2, early PS3 lifecycle those were some of may favorite games. I just fear they turn it into one of those barely updated sports franchises year after year.

The problem was that Joe Madureiro was no longer part of the company, maybe that made it pretty unattractive to any potential sellers.

I still thing it sucks big time we will have to wait years upon years before we see DS3, if at all.

In the end, it wasn't that bad, the best stuff went to Sega and Deepsilver, with ACTI and EA getting nothing, other than EA leaving with WWE, possibly.

EDIT
It's being rumored Take Two took (HA! see what I did there?) Vigil's IP but not the studio, if true it amounts to nothing as nobody from the original team working on the next DS will result in something else carrying just the brand.

Crytek was already actually working on Homefront 2 for THQ, they likely bought the rights so their work wasn't in vain. Buying the rights lets them find a new publisher for it and still release it.
