I received my preorder bonus information via email today. I can't seem to download the guide. I am registered at THQ's website. Has anyone else gotten the link Amazon sent to work?

I registered for the site using the register link at the top, but still can't access the guide. When I use the link Amazon sent me is says my account doesn't exist and doesn't let me register from that prompt.

I have the exact same problem, when I follow the Amazon link it wants me to login or register. Once I do that, I can't find the mini-guide - and if I paste the link in the browser once I'm logged in - it STILL tells me to login and register. Amazon, I'd sure like to get this darn mini guide!

I just tried the link and it is still not working. This sucks! If anyone gets it working please post how you did it. Thanks.

Just sent them an email, we'll see what happens.

I'm having the same issue as you guys. Amazon email link sends me to THQ site (a blog post) that tells me I have to register or login to see the post. If I hit register it doesn't even take me to a register page, but to the login page. If I try logging in with my THQ credentials it says I don't exist. So we're stuck in a loop here. I emailed THQ just now to see if they know what's up.

Here's my reply from Amazon customer service:


I'm sorry for the inconvenience caused. I've let our Technical Team know about it and I need to look into the problem with them, and it'll take a bit more time than usual.

I just wanted to let you know I'll write back in 2-3 business days with more information.
Thanks for giving me time to find the best solution.

Best Regards,
Jeelani M

I wasn't aware of the Prima digital mini-guide pre-order bonus.

Does it have a code of it's own?

I have yet to receive my "Deadly Despair Pack" code either, so I was wondering if both "Deadly Despair Pack" and "Prima digital mini-guide" are from the same code.

This is the email I received the day before I got the game:

The Amazon Video Games team thanks you for pre-ordering "Darksiders II" for PlayStation 3. Your purchase has entitled you to access the Deadly Despair Pack as well as a Prima digital mini-guide that covers the first two dungeons of the game. To download the digital mini-guide, please go to the following website: and register on the site. To access the Deadly Despair Pack, use "Your Promotional Code" above and follow these steps: Step 1: Open an account on the PlayStation Network (or use an existing account). Step 2: Select "Account Management" from the "PlayStation Network" icon on the XMB (XcrossMediaBar). Step 3: Select "Redeem Codes." Step 4: Enter the promotional code found above. Please note that the promotional code is case sensitive and must be entered exactly. Each claim code is unique and can't be shared.

I got the deadly despair speed boost, no luck with the mini-guide

Just checked my email, Amazon sent me a new code. Unfortunately I'm at work, can't try it until tonight. I'll let you know if it worked.

Still can't get the mini guide to work either. It tells me the same thing about logging in and invalid password even though I'm already logged in.

I was able to get the code to work in the email. I have not been able to get the mini guide url link to work though. I wonder why Amazon sent you a new code when it was the link that was not working right.

We're having the same problem. I thought maybe it was a plugin issue with IE or chrome but if I go to the forums section of darksiders website it shows me as logged in. They need to fix this, my husband is going to beat this part of the game before we can even get this to work. Part of the reason I even ordered it from Amazon was the pre-order bonus. Our code for deadly despair did work though, he managed to download that from xbox live.

Has anyone had any luck? I tried it again. I logged onto the site, then I used the link in the Amazon email. My initial login works just fine, its when I try to log in after using the strategy guide link that it tells me that the login information I just used successfully is invalid. Awesome.

oh, and as an update, my husband beat the game three days ago, so great pre-order bonus.

Still no luck with the Prima Digital Mini-Guide. Apparently, some people are having trouble redeeming the Crow Hammer DLC that came along with the Darksiders II Guide Book as well. Now, I am skeptical with any future Prima promotional games tie-ins.
