    I have purchased a few games recently. Things have been fine so far. No client, unless it say otherwise. Modern Warfare 2 required Steam.

    Games that require Steam (like PAYDAY: The Heist) you can just go to your Amazon download page, get the key, and activate it on Steam then download thorugh Steam.

    Nothing wrong with the Amazon download service though. They basically give you all the files you'd find on the disk if you bought retail.

    Finally purchased Deus Ex HR with the DLC and extra packs as 66% off was a nice deal via Steam. Also snagged Mirror's Edge as I finally have a physx capable card and will try them both out later today :)

    That's a great deal on Trine, an awesome game which (shock ) features good retro style gameplay :) (ala Lost Vikings)

    Ffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffuuuu uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu-

    I bought that game on the 29th with a 33% OFF THQ coupon...

    GABEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!






    This is no buyers remorse. I really liked the game and had only played it for a few minutes on the XBOX. I don't mind having payed the extra €€€s...
    I definitely recommend this game (and it's at a total bargain price, no DLC, full package)(Also, none of that purple dildo silly stuff from SR3). I also recommend having a gamepad to play it. And a 3.2GHz CPU...this is a direct port from the xbox. Cut-scenes and driving may have weird speeds with CPUs @ other freq. than 3.2GHz.

    Divinity is a dam good game but with some bad flaws and the major one i thought was that they needed more time for more new places like for the ciry like places were basically the same thing over. Kinda like Oblivion was going though the gate.

    O yeah when i 1st tried it the demo i hated it lol.. Then i got so bored one week and tried it again and actually really enjoyed it. Some games are worth a second chance and what i believe what got me hooked is some thing i hate about D&D once the dice roles the effect cannot be changed even if you move out of the way or even a wall in the way.

    This not being D&D allows you to frigging move out of the way of projectiles, well except for one :p

    I loved Divinity, got me hooked in straight away and in certain parts the graphics are quite reasonable.

    Dead Space Mobile is on sale in the Android Market for .49 cents today. So far so good, and it's really highly rated for a mobile game.

    DRM-free and Ubisoft ? seriously? WOW. Too bad none of the Anno series are bundled here. I've been waiting on an Anno2070 deal for months now.
