I might need to break my 75% off AND $5.00 rule, and get The Secret World.

Or should I wait for at LEAST $7.50?

I'm not sure it has ever hit $7.50.  I guess it will or be F2P one day, but I bought it for $12.50 this time last year and I think $10 is the lowest it has hit not counting one time at band camp when I put a flute in.... and it was $5 on Greenmangaming (but there was a monthly sub fee at the time).

Throw me your email and I'll send you a guest pass to try it out, might help you decide one way or the other.

Technically is F2P (arguably, I know). It's not likely to drop further, as there is so much content being bundled in right now (specifically, the Massive Edition), they are drawing a hard line where they went to selling subscription issues at the chang-over in subscription charges. There's tons to due without dropping another red cent on the game past what you buy the base game for. They might make a "massiver" edition to come in a year or so, but even with trying to increase user base for the game, it damn sure isn't going to be $10 for all that premium content. Remember, each issue goes for around $10. This is one game however, that you really do want to sub to for the quality of content that comes out of it.

It's really more the subscription-less model where you pay for content expansions (and unneeded perks) -- similar to Guild Wars 1/2.

 

I associate F2P with being painful unless you're regularly making some sort of purchase.  I want to play a game, not make continuous financial decisions.

 

I really like The Secret World's and Guild Wars revenue model.  Path of Exile is another player-friendly F2P model (cosmetic purchases only).

Speaking of The Secret World:

Plus they are bringing back the End of Days Event. Fuck yeah!

Unlikely, it hasn't been less than $10 since they dropped the subscription. They need that initial-sale revenue. It's quite good, and I recommend it.

I'm thinking GF had it at $10, then 8 after the coupon. That was around BF. I could be wrong, though.

I haven't seen the original series available on any streaming service. Amazon and Netflix both have bits and pieces (maybe 10-20 serials altogether) and I'm not sure what Apple has on iTunes, but I doubt it's much more complete. Personally I'd rather just buy a DVD when I can afford it, though, because the BBC loads them up with a ton of special features, including commentary tracks, subtitle info tracks, Radio Times listings, scripts, new documentaries commissioned for those releases as well as rare appearances by Doctors on other shows and archival interviews. 

 

Skyrim made me late for work today. Stupid labyrinthine Dwemer ruins!

 

I haven't seen a full roster of Classic Who anywhere either.  But that's kind of my point -- if I'm going to buy Prime for streaming, it needs to offer me something that the competition can't.  

 

I buy the full-season Blu-Rays of New Who, because my wife loves it and we enjoy the extras.  But she's never gotten into the original run, and I can't justify paying The Beeb's ridiculous prices for individual DVD episodes.  (Over $24 for Inferno?  That price should get me the entire season.  Seriously, BBC, just no.)  

 

I watched Spearhead from Space (the first Jon Pertwee serial) via Netflix a couple weeks ago, and the wibbly-wobbly-oldy-timey bug has bitten me.  I want more, but not at highway-robbery prices.  So if Tony tells the Prime crew to go get an exclusive streaming license for Classic Who, I'll bite.  Immediately.

 

 

Nope, they are all there. The Tennant Christmas specials are the first episode of the following season, the end specials are their own category and the Matt Smith Christmas specials are their own category for some reason.

Thanks for the correction.  I was comparing "Prime seasons" with "Physical media seasons", and a lot of stuff is in different places.

 

 

Wow on Lego Marvel at $11.99. But then again the others did drop fast too.

 

We have money set aside in the steam wallet from trading cards to get it at the steam sale (did not see it on flash/daily deal in autumn) but for $12 from amazon... wow.

Hooray, I get to post something on-topic!   :)

 

I bought a physical copy of Lego LOTR a year ago at launch, so I could put it under the Christmas tree.  By the time it got unwrapped, I'd already bought a second copy at $7.50 for my own Steam account, thanks to the Amazon Holiday Sale.  I held off on Lego Marvel at launch this year, hoping for another great holiday price.  (Now, if I can just get confirmation that this price will be repeated in the EC...)

 

 

Some search features on amazon need work, i find better links in this thread than on the actual site, it is strange.

 

If you go to Amazon's website to buy a specific item (where you already know the product name or enough details to nail it in a search), then Amazon is a fantastic resource.  But if you're not sure how to describe what you want, or if you just want to browse, the UI becomes an obstacle instead of an aid.  Targeted search great, fuzzy search not so much.

Ashes should be working off commission. Come on Tony, you've got at least one Digital Internship you can throw her way.

Looks like we're going to have Metal Gear Solid Rising for Pre-order tomorrow at 33% off ($19.99), there's still some final emails floating back and forth but I feel confident enough that it's going to happen to update you here.

 

Correct, thanks :).

I'm bummed there is a Mac version of The Movies but not Windows, though I know it would fail to run outside a GOG version.

The only problem is even if they did get the streaming rights, they wouldn't have much more than they do now since a lot of the Classic Who episodes are still lost.
