    Hmm strange one then. Every other game I've tried so far has run perfectly.

    Steam version of Crysis works no problem on Windows 7 (64bit) for me too.It's just Steam that appears to have stopped working after some update or other....anyone else?

    **Edit** - Oh it's working again now!

    I'm sure that could be remedied IF THEY SOLD PHYSICAL COPIES OF PC GAMES.

    shopto are shite I couldn't buy saints row 3 when it was on sale, they seem to not wan't peoples money

    That shopto shit is to stop international people using a proxy to buy things. Whereas virtually every other store doesn't give a flying fuck as a purchase is a purchase. Amazon even encourage it.

    Insanity. Ignoring the fact I'm in the UK for the second, why do they think it's on them to police that type of thing? It's down to the publishers/content providers, not the point of sale.
  • Deleted user 7 September 2012 18:28:39
    Because they're twats, pretty much.

    Amazon only block it if you don't have a US address in your account - it's trivial to add one. The reps even tell you how to do it if you ask.
  • Deleted user 7 September 2012 18:37:27
    Weird, that's the first I've ever heard of a block. Like I said, they actually encourage it if you ask. Is it a linked Amazon account from a different region? I've heard that sometimes their rules and regulations change depending on that (like how Amazon.fr can't buy digital items like books from Amazon.co.uk, but can from .com and other weirdness like that).
  • Deleted user 7 September 2012 18:48:52
    Nope, should just work with the linked UK accounts. I think you have to have a credit card linked to that address as a payment method though (but it can have a separate UK billing address).

    Total War sale on GetGames.

    Looks like I'll be picking up Fall of the Samurai and almost never playing it.

    Re: The Amazon US Address thing.

    I've bought downloadable games from the Amazon US site a few times .

    I just put in a fake US account.

    Set it as my default address for the purchase and download or steam code-reveal.

    Then swapped back to my default delivery address afterwards.

    I hope I don't lose the Dark Souls and Bulletstorm I bought from them.

    Don't worry it's coming over here, it's just been held up in the red tape which allows them to sell downloads. If you are in the UK Amazon downloads should be here some time early next year.

    I must be going bad - could have sworn I saw Endless Space for 50% earlier, but there's no sign of it now.

    Ragdoll Kung Fu is 1.49 on Steam today

    I don't like it, but it was the first third party game to be sold on Steam.
