Green Man Gaming has Skyrim digital download for $29.99. Key activates on Steam.

I've bought a few things from them and have had no issues activating their keys.

Green Man Gaming

UPDATE: Sale is apparently over as they ran out of keys. Price is up to $53.79. Cheaper than retail, but not uber-cheap.

From GMG Rep:

It took off very quickly and we've now ran out of the reserved stock! We do still have a very competitive price though :D

Make sure to keep checking back on our social media too for upcoming promotions :) We interact a lot with customers too and often like to get an idea of the kind of deals people are looking for!

Somewhat off-topic:
If you're about to embark on your first trip to Skyrim on PC, consider installing some of these great mods. I couldn't imagine playing without them.
Use the Nexus Mod Manager for insanely easy installation. Any mods you don't want are turned off with one click.
Tytanis Crafting Mod - Takes Smithing & Magic to the next level. Craft arrows, lockpicks, and lots more.
SkyUI - Awesome inventory sorting.
Quality World Map - Adds roads to the map for easier navigation.
Rich Merchants - What do you MEAN you don't have enough money for these dragon bones?!?!?!
Realistic Water Textures - Makes the water look amazing.
Glowing Ore Veins - Very useful. Make sure to find yourself a pickaxe first. (or craft one)
Enhanced Night Sky - Simply breathtaking. Adds galactic nebulas and crazy constellations to the already great auroras in Skyrim.
I am using all of these mods at the same time with no issues.

hey guys, did anyone else order it and did NOT get a key?

http://i.imgur.com/tBMn7.png (keys usually go there)

downloading capsule does nothing. the email when i purchased the game said "activation:" and no key next to it. as you can see i've ordered from GMG before and had no problems.

i have to leave soon and was hoping to start the download.. then i have to deal with support, hope it's not bad. :(

argh, frustrating.

I usually copy and paste mine from the confirmation email you get... was it listed on there?

EDIT: Just saw this on the GMG twitter feed:

"Not got a key yet? Due to server load it may take time. If 30 mins pass please make a ticket to our CS here: greenmangaming.zendesk.com/home"

I second this... No key in email or key page. GMG is flood at providing keys after the fact, so keep that in mind.

Well it's obvious that this deal is probably hammering their servers, so I guess give it a minute. This is the cheapest I've seen Skyrim on sale.

Just to reassure people, you will all get your keys :) If you don't receive a key for a while then submit a ticket to our CS team - we're on the case! :D

Got my key right away. I wanted to put off playing Skyrim until later in the year, but this price is too good.

Thanks GMG for a great deal! But my wife will not be happy as she's seen the last of me for a while.

Hey for anyone starting out Skyrim for the first time on PC, I'm gonna post some of my favorite mods in the OP... I started playing on PS3 (don't get me started) but switched to PC, and some of the crafting and graphics mods I couldn't imagine playing without at this point.

I bought this awhile ago, still haven't played it much yet, I'd appreciate the suggestions

How reliable is GMG? I keep seeing their deals pop up on here from time to time, but I've never shopped there.

I've never had any issues. Keys are issued immediately, and activate on Steam. If you have any issues, they have a good support system. One of their reps is a CAG member and posts here regularly... (in fact, he posted earlier in this thread).

It's true I did! :bouncy: Whenever we spot a problem we always dive right onto it and try to get it sorted asap :) We engage heavily with our userbase via social media and other channels (including posting here!) so we often see a quick turnaround from when a problem is identified to getting it solved. :)

I got a few games from them. Totally legit man. They just aren't based in the US.

It's based on an amount of specially reserved stock, so there's no specific time - It's vague but it will last as long as it lasts!

that seemed extremely fast...

All of Slickdeals can DIAF, if they killed it. Front paging it on Slickdeals certainly didn't help keeping it alike.

Going up from $29.99 to $53.79 isn't as much of a competitive price as a lot of people here would think.

Hopefully you can get more keys at the reduced price and pick up more sales of Skyrim at the $29.99 price.
