Amazon has a short lived deal. 12 Hours according to the ad on their front page.

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00AZMCYOI

Dawn of War bundle, 9.99 (75% off)

Warhammer 40k, Dawn of War + A bunch of expansions/dlc
Warhammer 40k, Dawn of War 2 + A bunch of expansions/dlc
Titan Quest Gold
Retribution + Expansions/DLC


(Not sure if they are dlc or expansions, but you get the idea).

Edit:
5 dollar promotion works, so it's only 4.99

Edit:
May be some key issues. Not sure if DoW is steam activated, but DoW 2 and Titan Quest is. Didn't get the DoW2 Retribution key so I can't activate the Retribution DLCs yet.

Sounds as though Amazon is working out the key situation. System error in distributing them or some such. Amazon is good about making sure you get your stuff though, the only real time I remember a significant delay was that huge Square-Enix pack and even then they got the keys out within a day.

I bought the DOW pack from Steam over the holidays though so I haven't been following the story too closely.

Ya, I got all my keys now. Took about 45 minutes to get the last two.

I didn't realize there was a delay until I actually clicked the "Order Details" and saw the little warning above my order that there was a delay in processing. Nothing was mentioned in my Game Library, just the keys weren't there.

Edit:
Fun game so far, worth the 4.99

DoW is not steam activated.
DoW2 is
Titan Quest is

You Don't Know Jack is $2.99 on Amazon. Steam activated. No coupon/code needed.

It's owned by THQ whose properties are up for auction this week (next two weeks?) so if you have any interest in it, this may be the time to secure a copy.

So is it likely that THQ's IP will be split between multiple other developers, or will it have to be an all or nothing to one or another?

Depends on which one earns more profit, the sale of the whole company or the total of the individual IP bids.

From what I understand, simulators are quite the fad in Europe. Pent up desire to have this game on Steam probably gave it a quick boost.

Based on this Swedish review it looks to be a well designed game.

Edit: Forgot to mention he swears A LOT, so NSFW.

With the holiday sales season ended, I figured I'd just ask and see what goodies people are now invested in.

I'm playing through Borderlands, having never played it. I picked up BL2 but enough people said it was worth doing BL1 first for the carry-over characters that I figured I'd start from the beginning.

I can understand some people's criticisms of the game as it really is the same thing over and over but I'm enjoying the mindless bandit killing and loot whoring. Playing a hunter and just hit level 30 (and defeated the Rakk hive) last night.

I recently got the Energy Morningstar on Borderlands 2, which is a sniper rifle that insults you. Makes killing a little more amusing.

Eh, I'd say they told you wrong. The characters in the original game don't really emote, or speak, for that matter, beyond the little quips they make after kills.

They only sort-of retcon them into three-dimensional characters in the second game, so there's really nothing to be missed in the first.

I'd have advised you to just start with 2. It's essentially the same experience, only with an improved plot and more 'stuff'.


For my part, I blasted through Mark of the Ninja in a couple days (thoroughly enjoyed it), then got sucked into Civ V again to see what Gods and Kings is all about (nice improvements, even thought he AI is still comically two-faced). When I've burned myself out on that one in another couple days, I'll probably move on to Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion/Witcher 2/Total War: Shogun 2. Bastion shall wait.

Been playing Sleeping Dogs, spent an hour last night drinking, getting massages, beating the **** out of Shaolin Monks, and doing Karaoke. I'm also in daily life and death battles with TirithRR in Hero Academy,

Aye, it just means that you'll probably need an extended break before signing up for another 100-or-so hours of looting that is Borderlands 2.

So we can look forward to discussing BL 2 with you in, say, 2017 or so.

I disliked the combat in Sleeping Dogs and dropped it pretty soon in. But I bought all that 96% off DLC from the Steam glitch so now I'd probably be overpowered and ram my way through battles despite my own incompetence. So I should pick it up again.

Got that year blocked off for discussing how to get group orgies in Dragon Age 3.

The combat is no different than Arkham City, just counter, attack during the opening, and shove that guy's face into the ventilation fan. What really drives me nuts is the driving on the left side of the road. Smiley: mad

I've bought a few, but the only ones I've really played were:
ME3 - Good game, didn't like the ending. Need the DLC for it before I play through again.
Witcher 2 - Died in the tutorial, stopped playing Smiley: lol I do actually plan to restart it. I watched about 3 hours of an LP for the original.
Kingdoms of Armalur (or whatever. I say "Kingdoms of Amagrlrgrl") - It's like Skyrim mixed with WoW, but the areas are a lot more linear. I put a good 15 hours into it so far, but it's a little tedious. Seems like a good story if I want to get further into it, but I prefer Skyrim.
Terraria - I did like this one, once I figured out how to build a house (the first night was HORRIFIC). Stopped playing after I killed the Eater of Worlds. Not really all that interested in hard mode.
Assassin's Creed 2 - My friend got this for me, insisting it's worth it. Haven't even installed it yet Smiley: tongue

I've honestly only spent my time WoWing recently.
