Amazon Summer Sale 2013 is here.
Amazon Summer Sale started and Tony is pushing the discounts.

As always there will be lots of titles on the sale, in fact the whole list will take 10 posts to put here so I won't be. And many of the titles are available either on Steam or in Origin.

Many people wonders if they can buy from Amazon outside of USA. You can, you just need a valid USA address, you can get a valid address from Borderlinx.

To be careful check the game page for DRM before purchase.
Steam has:

Code:

Steam account required for activation.
Origin has:

Code:

Requires Origin account for installation and activation.

Here's the master list, by the way. Much easier to see what's on sale compared to sifting through three-dozen unordered Amazon pages.

First part. If it is not labeled as Origin it is on Steam. But check it anyway to be sure.

Amazon UK really needs to get in on these sales.

I know it's probably been asked a million times but is it possible to buy these from the UK?

Make sure if you get ACIII you get the one that says it has Steam DRM. There is a non-Steam one for the same price. Well, get that one if you don't like Steam I guess.

Read the OP.

Anyway great work guys. Hopefully people who are new to Steam/Amazon sales will enjoy this but I've almost reached my limit of impulse buying it seems.

If you get the steam drm one does it not use uplay? Never really used uplay/bought a game with it so I'm just curious.

I find the borderlands bundle really frustrating cause I was stupid enough to buy the game too early, and you can't get the season pass for any less than that.

all I want is the season pass...

It's exactly the same stuff on sale that has been on sale every single sale.

Steam/GMG/Amazon/whatever always have EXACTLY the same games. After you've taken part in one sale, every other one is identical.

Good enough, but the only thing I really want is AssC III, and I'm boycotting uplay.

Amazon needs to get more games from more publishers. RE Revelations, Dishonored, Remember Me, and Antichamber are all games I want that aren't on Amazon.

The Third. But I don't think you can find it on Amazon or Steam, maybe on GOG.

Tony's perseverance can only achieve so much. At the end of the day, the publisher gets the final say, and given Amazon's DD store has exploded in popularity over the past year, I'm not surprised that he's been unable to convince certain publishers to discount some of their games as deeply as they had in the past.

Batman 1 is one of the weakest in the franchise, but Batman 2 is great fun, as are the Harry Potters and LOTR.

They are very similar, though, so I wouldn't necessarily suggest buying all of them at once. My personal favourites are the Harry Potters but then that's my favourite series of the three listed and I prefer the way the level hubs work in those games - LOTR has a giant sprawling map that can be a little barren at times, and Batman 2 has a big GTA-esque city and I'm not very good at driving in games...

Those are great prices for a lot of fun, but they are repetitive.
