Has anyone bought the newly available DLC pack for Burnout Paradise? I was wondering if it's possible to activate the cars without activating the Time Saver pack.

So, the Omerta base game flipped over to a discount, but it isn't a price match.  Steam has it for $9.99 and the discount on Amazon is to $19.99.

It's not possible to activate the pack without activating the time saver dlc. Maybe it's possible to disable it though, I haven't really looked into it. I didn't even realize the time saver crap was in it before you mentioned it.. oh well.

That's horrible. I really want the toy cars, they were my favorites when I played on console. The main thing I do when playing this game is try to unlock all the cars, so this pack would give me the car I want, while robbing all my motivation to play the game.

Yeah, I think it's ridiculous when they include unlock cheats in packs like this. Those should ALWAYS be excluded from packs. Sell them seperately, not together with other DLC.

Tony said this DLC was reintroduced to PC because it was someone at EA's favorite game. I would think a big fan of the game would feel that part of the fun is unlocking all of the cars. They put that in the game for a reason, it's one of the main goals in the game! This was a bad decision by him/EA, but there's nothing I can do about it besides not buy it I guess. :cry:

 

Thanks for the answers, I looked all over the internet and couldn't find the answer to this question.

Well you could buy it, but not activate it and instead activate with the savefile-hack method (thus excluding the timesavers cheats) I believe.  Maybe a little dodgy, but it's playing the game you own the way you want.

I've tried to use that hack before and didn't get anywhere with it. It didn't work for me. I'll just skip the DLC, You shall not have my $10 on this day, EA.

The real lesson we should take from this is that cheats shouldn't be DLC in the first place =(

Yeah, I never use 'time saving' cheats for games or unlocks.  Having a carrot dangling in front of me is part of the fun of playing.

Unfortunately that type of DLC is here to stay, in trying to find an answer to my Burnout question I saw an interview where Criterion said that the Time Saver was their most popular DLC. I understand that there are people who don't really respect the intended gameplay and just want an easy mode and start with the fastest car, destroying all challenge to the game... but this DLC pack paints every gamer under that group of people and it's not cool. Give us the option to not activate the time saver.

Hello Tony,

Is Rogue Legacy going to get price matched? http://www.amazon.co...ds=rogue legacy

Its 11.99 on steam, but still 14.99 on Amazon.

Seems like anything that isn't a daily deal -- excluding today's which haven't been matched -- isn't getting price matched on Amazon.  Tony said they were looking into the system, but no guarantees on anything.  He said if a deal is about to expire, just grab it on Steam.

So I think it's cool if we ask for PM's then.  Can I get Torchlight 2 (steam code pretty please?) PM'ed?

THANKS MAGICAL AMAZON PERSON!

Considering T2 doesn't seem to be on Amazon at all, I think asking for a PM is probably out of the question.

Not true, Amazon only does not price match the temporary deals like flashes and community choices. They have already pricematched a regular Steam sale, Guns of Icarus Online, which has not been a daily.

 

The problem is that Amazon only gets anything done when Tony is around... and he hasn't been around much.

The regular title price matches are few and far between.  Take a look at the requests here and match them against what's currently on sale at Amazon.  Very little.  Pulling out one title as indicative of regular Steam Sale price matches on Amazon when there have been countless that haven't been matched, is disingenuous at best.  Especially when the operative word in my initial sentence is "seems".

Simply put they need more employees to handle things -- something that's out of Tony's hands, I'm sure.

I was just saying that Amazon does pricematch normal sales on Steam no problem. It's just that they've been really slow and inattentive this Summer Sale...

I say we start a petition to clone at least 2 additional Amazon Tony's. Then they can work at maximum efficiency and always be around to fulfill our price match requests. And to hear us bitch. And to throw together awesome bundles for us (occasionally.) And to send Idiotekque awesome Secret World swag. (That's not a strain of weed.)
