12. Re: Move to Florida before you buy the game. Apr 8, 2012, 12:46 nin
 

Nice review, shill. Or are you just a hypocrite?

No, I played it for an hour. And at no time did I say where to get it.

Unlike your posts:

Amazon downloads has it for the same price as Steam's was.

Amazon downloads work great.

Downloading these installation files uses Amazon's special applet for that particular download

d unlike Steam the download speeds have always been great for me because of Amazon's cloud

you don't have to worry about hackers stealing Amazon's customer database because Amazon has better security.

Amazon downloads has some great deals on EA games today (11/28).

Amazon game downloads has some great deals today that beat Steam like:

Amazon game downloads has a new set of deals up here.

He could then download the game from Steam instead of Amazon since the game requires Steam anyway.

Have him create an Amazon account with one of your email addresses.

There is a new batch of deals at Amazon today

It has been reported by numerous people on the Steam forums that entering a U.S. address from a state without Amazon sales tax such as Florida in your Amazon account as your billing address will overcome that restriction.

Amazon has Dragon Age Origins Ultimate Edition for $7.50 and Dragon Age 2 for $5.

you don't have to worry about being forced to use it if you get Dragon Age 2 from Amazon.

Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 is now $34.99 at Amazon.

Amazon game downloads now has Crisis Maximum Edition for $7.50

Battlefield 3 is $29.99 today at Amazon game downloads

Amazon game downloads has the game on sale today for $5.99.

GTAIV is $4.99 today at Amazon

Dead Space 2 is $5 today from Amazon game downloads.

Alice Madness is $7.49 today at Amazon game downloads.

EA's games are available for download on Origin and every other digital distributor such as Amazon except Steam.

For some reason none of Bethesda's games are available from Amazon downloads

Well today is the last day of the EA sale week at Amazon game downloads.

Yesterday Amazon sold so many copies of Medal of Honor (free with $5 Holiday Coupon) that it ran out of product keys

Sorry. Amazon ran out of keys again before the end of the day,

Amazon has lots of these sales

Amazon game downloads has run the Crysis Maximum Edition,

check back regularly at Amazon.

Amazon has had COD:MW2 for $5

Amazon has also had MW3 for $29.99

In your Amazon account information enter Florida as your state under your billing information.

Amazon doesn't check this information for validity with your payment method.

I'm all for sales on Origin because Amazon will at least match these prices.

Speaking of Amazon its current sale is buy 1 get 1 on a host of older games from Ubisoft that are now DRM-free @ Amazon.

You should be able to buy the game from Amazon

And, by "move" I mean you enter a city, state, and ZIP code like "ORLANDO, FL 32801" as a new address in your Amazon account and then use that address when you purchase the game.

Amazon will give you a code which you can enter into Steam

Amazon also provides a downloader applet to download a particular game

Amazon's game files for Steamworks games are the same as those for retail Steamwork

CKII is not listed on Amazon's store page as requiring Steam

Simply download the game from Amazon.

Amazon is a huge, reliable company, and its game downloads work great.


So in your 52 post history, I count you've mentioned Amazon 46 times, at minimum? And you're not a shill?

Didn't notice his post history..

Ah well, I got CK II half the price. Luckily I was spending the weekend in my uncle's fantastic New York apartment with a view of Central Park and was able to make the purchase.

My steam account is regional too, I wonder if activating CK II on Steam will be effected if I BS my address.. Unless the download is independant of that.
If CK II is a Steamworks game, then Amazon will give you a code which you can enter into Steam to add the game to your account just like a retail Steamworks game. I doubt that code for this game is region-restricted although Steam does enforce region restrictions for some games and uses GeoIP to do it. Amazon also provides a downloader applet to download a particular game, but Amazon's game files for Steamworks games are the same as those for retail Steamworks games released on DVD-ROM which means they are usually out of date compared to downloading the game directly from Steam.

CKII is not listed on Amazon's store page as requiring Steam, so if the game doesn't require Steam I wouldn't worry about it. Simply download the game from Amazon. Amazon is a huge, reliable company, and its game downloads work great.

Damn I wish I could buy Crusader Kings II at that price, but this sale is locked out to international customers.
You should be able to buy the game from Amazon at the sale price if you move to a U.S. state like Florida. And, by "move" I mean you enter a city, state, and ZIP code like "ORLANDO, FL 32801" as a new address in your Amazon account and then use that address when you purchase the game. If you need a new street address too, Google maps is your friend.

This has been confirmed to work by many formerly International customers including some on this forum.

Nice post, but here are some additions.

Add Saint's Row 3 and its DLC, the Warhammer Games and their DLC, Homefront and its DLC, and Post Apocalyptic Mayhem for $3.99 to your Steam activiation list.

It also needs to be noted that the EA games listed in the sale don't require Origin except for Syndicate and Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning.

Fifteen Disney games have also been added to the list since the sale started so check back for new games on sale before the sale ends on 4/15.
