I got it for 10 cents and it took the stupid GFWL client almost 30 minutes to install a 2.5GB game. This is on a ridiculously fast machine with an SSD. Even when you win with GFWL, you still lose somehow.

hehehe the main page for the .10 game is there - but when you try and checkout it isn't available at that price anymore. When you search for the game it is full price. Funny.

Oh well, didn't really want it that bad - and now I can avoid installing the software!

I bought that massive THQ pack Steam had on sale a while back. I don't have time for another RTS, not even a ten cent one. :O

I got it for .10. It seems this 10c deal is going to happy on the regular. It will be interesting to see what else they put up for that price point. I wanted the Bioshock 2 with all the DLC!

If you click on the game in the GfWL program theres an option to view game keys.

The sale overloaded Microsoft's servers somehow and many people aren't getting their keys - mine are 'No key assigned'. However on the forums MS is saying to email GFWLSR@hotmail.com for help - the phone line had a 50 minute hold time last I checked.

Whee.

Credit where credit is due: 10 cents for AoE 3 is way cool of Microsoft. AoE3 lost a bit from the phenomenal AoE 2, but it's still a great game they are basically giving away for free.

Picked up AoE3 too. Only problem is you have to use the GfWL front end. I can't imagine how much time and money has already gone into creating what has to be the absolute worst PC game buying software ever. It sucks on the XBox side too, but not as bad. Personally I think MS ought to throw in the towel and hitch a horse to Steam while supporting developers that are creating Windows games.

The website actually says that it is todays daily 10 cent deal. So looks there will be another one tomorrow.

Hmm. I bought AoE III but it's asking for a product key but MS never emailed me one and it's not on my WINDOWS LIVE account anywhere. Silly Microsoft!

Don't give money to Microsoft. Ever. Not even 10 cents.

If you doubt, see how they're raping AoE with their upcoming Age of Farmville: Online, you know, the game that shows how much they care for the PC.

Even at 10 cents, I'm not sure if it's worth it.. still, 10 cents.

Does AoE III have the big modding community that AoE II has/had? I'm thinking no.. but.. 10 cents!

....looks like I have wasted my $0.10. Says game for windows marketplace installed but when I try and start it the splash screen shows up, then goes away... So fuck it, I don't want to troubleshoot your bullshit.

$.10?! Oh wow, either this is the deal of the century or someone really fucked up at the GfWL HQs

...or marketing is using an older, but still appealing title to try to introduce more people to the GFW market system right before the holiday sales start. They lose a bit of bandwidth in exchange for a larger installed market with active accounts just before the busiest shopping season.

In other words, this is your free sample baggy.
