Yeah the deal appears to be over. Dammit! I thought it ran untill October 1st. Welp, I was going to buy it today after that great demo but now I'll wait and see if they do something similar again.

So did I. They were a little tricky on this one. The deal to trade in for XCom goes till Oct 1st...however the deal for the other game FREE ended on the 21st, but to their credit they extended it till today. I bet they don't need to extend it anymore now that there's a demo though. It was the ONE thing holding me back from pre-purchase. Most likely I'll end up picking it up on GMG if I get it anyhow, it's still 10% off for the NA version and I don't need any of the pre-order bonuses on steam.

Neehaw! So excited!

I haven't pre-ordered yet, as I'm holding out for a decent sale price. Has anyone found any deals, aside from a 10% pre-order discount from Amazon and GMG?

[EDIT] The below may no longer be valid...just looked at the "free" game and it looks like it's $20 now ... Yup, blog says it ended at 11:00 UTC today. Sorry. Link to Blog About Deal Ending[/EDIT]

You can get the game for 44.99 + $8 off using the following link on Green Man. Good till Oct. 1st-ish...depending on time zone. Obviously no steam "goodies" if you go this route. I've been holding off for a demo....gonna try it out tonight and buy if I'm into it. Damn. Just got into GW2 as well. lol.

And after all the tax dollars ATT has received over the years HTF can they swing this?!

Not sure, and didn't read the article, but I'm guessing they don't own the copper, so they're simply not going to provide service over the copper. Most of the subsidies go to the local owner of the physical plant, and I think after the deregulation in 1996 AT&T pulled out of owning the physical side of things and concentrated on just providing service.

Any chance I can get an invite to the guild? I was able to transfer over to the server, it seems like it goes from "High" to "Full" and back and forth, but when I looked it happened to be on "High" and they let me switch over for free.

What server are the blues people on for when I start playing next month?

A bigger concern will be which servers are full. I just started this weekend, and a good number of the servers were either "Heavily" populated or "Full". I forget which server I saw posted that people were on, but it was full....one of the guys there may recall the name...since I'm sure there's not a server called "Thunder Road" and that's what name is coming to my head. lol

I just tried via my Netherlands VPN, and I was able to apply the code. I'd wager that it's region locked.

YES , it does

In the photo yours says XCOM: Enemy Unknown but my cart says: XCOM: Enemy Unknown (NA). Different region perhaps (I'm in North America)?

$50 is a bit much for me on this game. I loved the original XCom games, and still play them to this day. I'm concerned I won't like this reboot BECAUSE I liked the originals so much. I hope they put out a demo, if I can get some play time on the game and it feels true to the original XCOM style the way I'd like it, it would be worth $50.

I've had pre-purchase anxiety ever since Brink.

I know you're being snarky, but on the off chance you do have a real need for a good viewer, tryout XnView. It has lot's of organization options.


Sweet, I'll check it out. I really do need something to organize my videos, and I really am bad at organization.

I wish I could find a candidate who would filter my porn properly. I'm horrible at organization, and have lots of porn. It really needs to get filtered into different folders, and maybe labeled with some searchable keywords.

3. Re: Iranian-American woman says Apple refused to sell her an iPad Jun 25, 2012, 10:46 Will W
 
I really hope that Apple store employee doesn't get in trouble for not selling the Ipad to the woman. The article only gives one side of the story, however even with just that information it appears that she volunteered the information that she was planning to purchase the Ipad to ship it to Iran, although it doesn't say if she gave that information in-store. If the employee sold her an Ipad knowing that her intention was to break US export laws, he would be an accessory to the crime.

It seems to me the Apple employee acted correctly in the store. I wonder if the employee at Apple Corporate was told that the Ipad was bound for Iran before advising the customer to purchase online.

Just make sure wherever you're moving has NFL Network, Week 3 of the Giants schedule is an NFL Network game, and if you're out of the area it most likely won't be on local channels. Then again, if you're out of area you may need to get Sunday Ticket to watch the Giants.....

You've gotta love Amazon Prime! :-)

Two suggestions I'd give are "Weber's Real Grilling" and ANYTHING by Paul Kirk.

I was expecting $29.99+

Instant pre-order purchase, love that they offer both Steam and DRM free standalone version.


And that if you buy from the publisher, you get both versions and don't have to buy them separately. That was a nice post-purchase surprise.

I bought direct from the developer (comes up as charge from Humble Bundle though). I want the Steam key, but would rather the developer gets the lions share of my cash...and I'm hoping that's what will happen.

I wonder if there are any moral qualms on Blue's part about advertising that ME3 is available for download like this...

Why would there be? He's reporting news, or rather linking to news, not telling you to go download the software. He didn't go search out links for torrent files, or advise you on how to obtain the software.
