I am not really amused by the box content, but they would make ok freebies for folks.

I never got my emails either, though you can get to the content via the confirmation email. May try to ask for a refund because of the inclusion of a subscription-based game.

Don't waste your time.

I just put all the stuff I didn't need in the Perpetual Free Steam Codes Thread and was done with it, at least someone will get something out of it.

EDIT: Apparently the FF14 key doesn't work on Steam, needs to be through SE directly.

Lol some of the reactions in this thread are pretty funny, $10 bucks folks, $80 MSRP spread across 5 games not sure what ppl were expecting.

If you didn't have any of the games already it's a pretty great deal and for anyone wanting to try FFXIV the 30 days and base game is worth $10 by itself.

I don't think I ever got an email for this bundle...can't find one anywhere, anyway.

anyone that buys something blindly without knowing the contents doesn't have the right to be outraged

Wait a second...it looks like last year they gave away the Master Thief Edition of Thief, but this year it seems to be zero DLC or anything? That's kind of a slap in the face. Though the Master Thief edition is just a single small DLC or something, still...

I'm not disappointed for $10. I didn't have thief yet, I'm going to try FFIV as I need a new time waster. The rest I may try out.

I'm slightly disappointed, only at the inclusion of part one of a five part game and an MMO that requires a sub. I wouldn't call it five games, but that's just my perception. I don't think it's an awful deal or anything - just marketed poorly.
