Just got an email from Square-Enix advertising their "Surprise Gift Box" for $9.99

Inside is a random selection of choice games which will total over $80, supposedly.

 

These are all digital PC copies, hopefully for Steam.

 

 

Offer Valid: 12/8/2015 12:00 am PST ~ 12/17/2015 11: 59 PM PST

Contents of the box will then be revealed on the 18th.

 

Here a link for all interested

I am interested, but I'm curious what other people may get out of this.

You should probably note that this is only for PC download games. Thanks anyway.

So....which one of us is going first?

 

Foxhack? Blade? Spooderman? FoxxyPie?

I laughed way to hard at this.

My brain pictured a group of people with a chance to get laid, but the person offering is not the most pleasent or attractive..

This or Assassins Creed Unity. That is the question.

 

edit - Glad i'm the attractive one... after showered. Still not going first...

I wouldn't if you think for an instant there's going to be some JRPG stuff in there. I've seen Square make PC bundles and it always skews heavily to the Eidos side.

Got excited for the potential deal until I saw it was for PC downloads. I'll bet it's no better than the Squeenix Humble bundles. Was hoping for a console or handheld physical game and some swag or something. Should have known better. I'm sure it'll be useful to someone though, so it's worth the post.

They give you Final Fantasy XiV, and not even a Realm Reborn.

For $9.99 I was willing to take one for the team and check this out, then I read: "The contents of this exclusive deal will be announced and delivered after 12:00pm on December 18th, 2015."

Too bad their $80 value means MSRP.

What does "additional store offerings" mean, I wonder?

 

EDIT: Also, what makes them likely to be Steam codes? Only PC download game I ever bought from SE was FFVII, and that unfortunately was not a Steam code.

Just an assumption, I thought most of their games were on steam.

$80 value? just remember they overvalue their games more than gamestop.

Anyone know how their store handles PC downloads?  If they're individual steam codes, I'll buy this - worst case scenario is some spare games to give away.

I think they learned their lesson with that unfortunate release that no one really wants to buy PC games direct from them with their own crap DRM. Almost everything they sell now save for the MMO stuff should be Steam, but their store isn't exactly clear about that either. :-P

Yeah, TC obviously didn't know about those issues or they wouldn't have bothered to post this deal in the first pla--oh wait.
