I don't have an Android device at the moment, but wanted to take advantage of some of these free apps in the event that I purchase one in the future. Is there really no way of obtaining these apps without an Android that has the Amazon Appstore installed?

no

i still don't know what a festivus pole is =/

Me neither... it's a metal pipe with feet? For what? Put speakers on top?? Balance pizza on?

Seinfeld reference.

Wouldn't it be easier to just not "do" xmas if you don't wanna?

Yep the game launched buggy in January. That is ancient history...

Ancient history, sure.. my first and last impression though.

And considering that developers usually want first impressions to be good, it still baffles me how people can release games in such state. Don't expect people to forget that, IDG is to me the dev that released a broken game. In the same mental row as SOTS2 and X: Rebirth

Edit: Heck, spelling is hard without coffee ;p

They usually do it because they need to start generating revenue or else start laying people off. It sucks but it's the reality of game development. People gotta get paid. As with most Kickstarters, iDGi underestimated how much money they would need to finish the game.

Cases like this are why I appreciate Early Access. Developers can start generating revenue before officially releasing the game. They also get the benefit of public testing and feedback, ensuring the final product is more polished. Customers buying Early Access builds know what they're getting into (or at least, they should) so there's no disappointment when the game is buggy and incomplete. Consortium would have benefit from Early Access. Same for Sword of the Stars 2 and X:Rebirth.

The impact of X: Rebirth in early access after it was already 5 years in development would have been disastrous one way or the other though... lots of people see Early Access as part of their first impressions.

American Conquest was better than Cossacks 2.. so let's hope they realize their mistakes and make it not a pain in the ass game (And let's hope it's not 3D)

Edit: ps, I remember a game in that engine called Alexander.. I swear I could never find that anywhere.

May I just say? Releasing large long and (story wise) connected point and click adventure games in buggy half-assed episodes every few months is the...

FUCKING DUMBEST THING EVER

This isn't like Telltale games, where you can basically get a recap. In this you get thrown into episode 4 and you are supposed to remember the last 6 months worth of episodes.

Love how "gamer" takes the headline rather than "high as a kite" or "mentally ill". It's surely one of those two.

Don't be absurd, there is no place for journalistic reporting in a clickbait-piece. In Germany you pull that, you get the bill for the emergency services you activated. I hear the repeat offender amount is zero.

Had Max Payne 3 for over a year. Still can't get it to launch past initializing at the start. I've spent HOURS trying all the "fixes" people have posted. I can't tell you how tempted I am to just get the pirate "fix". If only the game was supposed to be any good I'd probably care that little bit more than I do and try the final solution. Bottom line? **** DRM.

You do know that downloading a crack for a game you own is actually legal, right?

Not just the FBI. The President says it's so.

That's not exactly totally convincing, but he's officially said it.

Reminds me of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq...

If it had Hyena's that could eat the Sim's baby's or rattlesnakes that could kill random ones, maybe might be interesting.

But not.
If it had giant robots that could trample houses, explode random neighborhoods and trigger a vast alien invasion that kills some random Sim's baby, maybe might be interesting.

But not.

Sony hack was 'cyber vandalism,' not act of war, says Obama.

Other than the fact he is a decent speaker, he says about as asinine things as Bush did, but it sounds like sugar when he says it.....

Delivery matters, if it is the same headline I saw either, the other side says it was an act of war. So we going to war over computer hacking? I've heard our military has been hacked for years, but when it's movies that is an act of war? Seems like they want to war on anything now.

Not to mention it's unproven that it was North Korean hackers. The FBI saying so does not mean it is so.

If you are lucky enough to live in the United States that is!
Yeah they didn't mention things like BBC (uk only)

BBC is financed by UK tax-payers, so .. makes sense it's only for UK tax-payers, same for the ÖR in Germany. Very unlike say, Netflix or other offers.

North Korea is the pest boil on this beautiful planet. 70 years of indoctrination and work camps, of slavery, murder, rape and god-hood of the leader caste have completely defiled that country. I mean even if the world, including China, got together and removed the leading caste, do you think these people will rise up and cheer at you? Or us, the hated evil western imperialist pigs?

How does South Korea think a reunification will even work? This isn't like GDR and West Germany, where there was a substantial pressure from within that eroded the system. This is a country that doesn't know anything else at this point. Entire generations lived and died in North Korea never knowing ANYTHING ELSE but this indoctrination.. makes me sad ;(

In the west we've got our own, much subtler and insidious, indoctrination buddy...

But we don't put people into work camps and torture them to death, threating to rape their wifes in front of them or starving them intentionally then sticking tubes up their ass to force feed them, depriving them of sleep with loud music or putting them into illegal prison camps at the end of the world etc...... eehm.. except the USA (To me, the USA is on the same moral level as China or Russia) ie, it has no morals.

Snide sarcasm aside, I am well aware that we in the western world have our own sort of capitalist subtle yet indeed insidious indoctrination.. but from I learned by my parents that both lived under GDR Stasi rule I am much more aware of it than mostly anyone else I guess. But when it comes down to it, I'd rather live in a world of mega-corporations and banksters than a world of "communism" and remember, I lived in what they called socialist communism in the GDR as child...

Given the choice, I'd have capitalism ten times over than even a single day of "communism" (because communism is also perverted by the leadership, there is no way around this, as soon as someone is in charge, you have some that are more equal than others....) but unlike with that, at least in our western world you can go into politics and subvert the system from within

You know what happened when Portugal sold some of their regional water infrastructure to private companies? Prices rose by 400% above the average nation-wide price.
