What do you guys think my chances are of getting a Defiance key in the giveaway? I tried the demo and really liked it, and am tempted to just buy it for $5.

Probably close to 99.99% -- wasn't there like 200+ keys?

Well, maybe I'll not buy it and assume I'll win one. If I don't, I MIGHT have a game or two lying around that I can play instead.  :rofl:

Well it's just that the 2K credit expires this March. Other than the EC sale coming up in a couple of days, I don't remember seeing any other big sales before summer.

I'm guessing you weren't following the thread even weekly.  Tony ran a really nice set of sales in May.

Really glad that LN was given the opportunity/hassle of managing the key giveaway.  He is a standup guy with great generosity. He had a post recently where he offered up some games.  I PMed him for one of them as he had requested, but in the interim he had posted the keys.  It wasn't a big deal, so I wished him a Merry Christmas and thanked him for the chance anyways.  Lo and behold, he shelled out some cash and gifted me a steam copy of the game anyways.

 

Good dude, and I can't think of anyone better to manage the key giveaway.  I hope lightning strikes twice for me, but even if not I hope everyone appreciates Tony/Amazon's generosity and LN's work in managing the giveaway.  Good luck CAGs.

 

And just for fun:

not sure why that Oil Rush has the extra digit, but that is what it looks like on my Humble Page :)  Hope it works for someone!

Haha this thread moves way too quickly for me to keep up.  Ah well.

It's a little known fact that spoders can only see in shades of gray, 50 of them to be exact.

 

Sort of… but real monies > fake Gabe monies.  Seems like I never spend my fake Gabe monies.

Fixed.

Considering the amount of people that will magically appear when something is free I'd say more like 25%

I'm waiting for Dishonored GOTY at 75% off and hope to see at some point Skyrim DLCs at 75% off. But, yes, Bethesda has serious issues about his price policy and doesn't make sense. It's like: "Hey, you want DLCs? Better buy GOTY/Legendary edition and get them from there. It doesn't matter you already own base game because your are just looking for DLCs".

Do the EC games actually tend to be "even lower" prices, or is it likely to be stuff that's just not currently on sale? I'm also looking at Dishonored GOTY, and they've got the Steam price of $13.59 matched (which is already the lowest price it has been). With the Steam sale now over, wouldn't it just be more likely for Amazon to raise their price back up?

 

EDIT - Yup, nevermind. Answered my own question. Refreshed the page and it's back to $39.99. It seems like it would be a great candidate for an EC deal...just not sure if they can do any better than the price they just had.

I caved in and bought Skyrim Legendary for about $19 bucks before the sale ended. Part of me hopes that its not on the EC list.

Yes. If you followed the thread, a few hundred pages back people were posting their EC hauls from the last two years.

You really need to check the link in my sig.

Just wait until the console people start commenting on the lack of console titles to use their EC credits on.

It's based on first come, first serve. Otherwise there'd be no need for CheapyD to give a heads up about the time it goes live.

I'd wait on buying.  I don't think the giveaway is how you think it's going to be for Defiance.  Besides, if you do happen to miss out, it surely will go on sale again.

LMAO...you'll have to forgive me for not thinking to check a few hundred pages back. Actually being ridiculed for having a life outside of this website is amusing. As for the link in your sig, truthfully, I didn't notice that it had changed, and I really don't give your signature much of a glance.

 

That list isn't exactly promising though...as a few of the prices are actually worse than what they just had. Bioshock Infinite is almost as expensive as the entire trilogy just was. Contrast was also cheaper a couple days ago. And the Xcom games also seem to be priced higher. I guess we'll see what other deals spring up.

Got 28 e-mails from Amazon this morning with promotional credit.

 

Not sure I'm more shocked by the fact I bought that many games this x-mas, or by the fact I will buy 28 editors choice games over the next week. YIKEs!
