imagine a modern, 3d, simon's quest

I had to think for a few seconds, but this may be the most succinct yet accurate explanation of Dark Souls I've ever read... at least for anyone old enough to remember the frustrations and joys (extreme highs and lows) experienced by playing Castlevania 2 as a grade schooler with no access to guides or internet :)

Dark Souls is a good and unforgiving game for console it's great for PC..not so much. One of the worst ports this gen next to Sr2.  there are mods out there to "fix" the game though

 Even vanilla Dark Souls is a very solid port.  It runs well and is well optimized even on a low end system and few crashes (except for the poor souls that have GFWL set up problems).  It's a well made game and a well made port. It's not poorly optimized or buggy like many other "bad" PC ports. 

The only problem with it is a lack of graphics options, which the DSFIX mod solves. You turn off AA in game, drop the two files into the game folder then you open DSFIX.ini file and edit the graphics settings you want.  That's it.  It takes 2-3 minutes.

For arguments sake, while it has been on sale frequently, this is the cheapest it's been, which is why some people have been holding off buying in the past.  Well, that and GFWL.

I'm waiting for $5 and/or GFWL to be patched out, how crazy of me. You should just lock me up now since I've obviously got problems for not owning this game already.

I'm surprised his head didn't explode when you bitched about something totally out of Amazon's control. When you buy PC downloads from any online store you should check each game to see what kind of DRM it has. Gamefly, Gamersgate, and Amazon all sell packs that have multiple DRM systems for different games. You didn't pay attention, you got outraged and started complaining on a forum, and for some reason Tony gave you $10 which is way more than any other store would do for you. The game isn't even on Steam, so it's pretty ridiculous to whine about it. If the link for that individual game said Steam that would be different. But your post comes off as entitled and childish, and that's why people didn't take it that well.

 

And you sir are a self righteous douche. Amazon gets a lot of my money, and I mean a lot, this is the 1st time in recent memory that I complained, and it was no big deal until people like you attack. I checked the page, did my due diligence, but yes failed to check if the game was on Steam. Amazon do give exceptional customer service, and Tony is an asset, but when the rubber hits the road it is still my money being spent and I feel that I can point out something that seems wrong. Why don't you attack all the folks pissed about UPlay or GFWL.

 

Go mind your own F'n business. 

 

And p.s dumbass, the comments on the actual amazon page are entirely in Amazons control. It's not like DRM confusion doesn't happen on a daily basis, and in this case Tony changed the language on the page to help the next buyer, so IMHO by reporting it I did some good.

This man just entered a word of helpless addiction the likes of which only junkies can truly understand, and you say "Welcome"? This man is in need of rehab, STAT! Backlog, incessantly hitting F5 to refresh sale pages, checking forums daily, then hourly until reaching the coveted "CAG regular" status, buying bundle after bundle (figuring out the mean average you're paying for each game in the bundle versus the ones you already have), creating spreadsheets to feel more organized all the while just really creating more methods to nurture your addiction even more, keeping track of where you bought what and what service it requires, diving into the mysterious word of layers of DRM, installing mobile apps to keep track of all of the above when not stationed i front of his PC, then needing tech sales and forums to find deals on the massive hard drives required to store all of the above. May whatever God you believe in take pity on your soul Good Sir.

Let's all relax here and keep our personal squabbles off the Amazon (or any) CAG board. 

I'm not taking sides at all in this argument, it's just annoying to have to see posts like this, especially on Thanksgiving eve. 

Let's all just enjoy the gnarly ass deals and continue to praise our lord and savior, Tony, and focus on salvaging those who place false idols (Gaben) before him.

Bit on the combo pack with XCom, Civ 4 an Civ 5.  Mostly because a friend heard me talking about it and said he would give me ten bucks for the Civ 4 key (he was stoked since it included the expansions and Colonization.)  So I got XCom and Civ 5 for ten dollars.  WOOT!!!!

I'm not trying to argue, just to say how the post came off. Look, I don't want to get in a fight with you or anything, and I apologize for being an ass if I have. We all buy something without investigating it enough sometimes. But my reaction if I had bought that and it hadn't been discussed in here already (which it had, extensively) would be a quick "hey guys, in case you didn't know, I thought this was for a Steam code but it's not even on Steam" not to complain to Tony about something being Amazon's fault. Really, if you wanted the game before, how big a difference is it to just add a non-Steam game to Steam if it isn't on Steam?

 

Anyway, I extend the peace pipe.

Just wanted to say thanks to everyone who posted details about the Intel GRID 2 giveaway!

A while ago I had tried for several days to win a code but when I realized how weird the highscore table was I stopped trying and never looked further into details. Well now I just retried once more, managed to get a 2:49 time and did indeed win a key! :D

 

Sorry Tony, one thing less I'll be getting from Amazon...but now I'm considering getting the Racing Pack instead once it hits $9.99. ;)

If anyone gets another key for GRID 2 who doesn't need it and is kind enough to share it, I will be grateful to have it because Europe is not eligible for this giveaway so I can't try myself to get one.

 

Thanks in advance.

Hey guys,

 

Couple of updates:

 

1. Please stop arguing, see the OP. Last year got really ugly and I don't want to see the thread spiral out of control again.

2. We are going to be selling the 2400 Cartel Coins Pack for 25% off tomorrow through 12/2, for those still playing SWTOR this could be good :).

3. We moved the Assassin's Creed III and Assassin's Creed III Deluxe 75% off sale up to include both tomorrow and Black Friday

4. We changed the BF4 $24.99 promotion. Here are the new details:

  1. We’ll be at $24.99 for 4 hours 3:10PM (PST) – 7:10PM (PST) on 11/28
  2. Prior to that we will be at $34.99 on 11/28
  3. On 11/29 we’ll be at $29.99

This deal changed a bunch over the last couple of days, this should be the final iteration.

 

Cheers,
Tony

My only concern is that if there is an issue, it may not be noticed until it's too late (EC sales already started) or may not be noticed at all (I'll be required to count up my DVG purchases and match it with whatever the email will say I should get promo-wise).

 

 

thats exactly it...

 

 

I agree with both of these comments.

 

Thanks dudes, I'm going to bring this to the team next week and see how we can help address.

Stay tuned.

 

Will I get 5$ credit promo if I buy PSN code on digital store ?

 

Yes.

 

 

Tony, but at what time? If it's midnight Pacific time,I need to know if I should wake up at 3am eastern time

 

All our deals start at midnight Pacific unless we explicitly state "This deal starts at X time".

 

 

Yeah, most of the older ones have been in the $7.50-$8 range.  Might want to hold off another month.

/agreed, we don't have anything locked in yet but I'm pushing for those ranges.

 

Tony,

 

Repost 'cause I think you missed it a few days back:

 

I'll look into this now. I think there was a fat finger error with that one getting added to the deal tracker though.

 

When does the Max Payne Complete deal end?

 

12/3

 

Any deal on BF4 Premium?

 

Just the bundle with BF4 for $80.

 

Cheers,

Tony
