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

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