Picked up a G&K key for myself. Now trying to order a copy with my wife's GMG account and getting blocked. Tried calling my CC company and no problems on their end. UGH!

I haven't been keeping up with this thread and so i almost didn't check cause the OP lists Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams at $14.99, but it's $8.99 (or $6.30 with the 30% coupon). Missed a couple sales on this game and have been wanting to pick it up ~$5.

I was told that Gods and Kings does not require the base Civ V game, but now steam is telling me that I do, which is it?

It does. It's an expansion.

C5: G&K is a true-blue expansion.
You need Civ 5 to run it.

Also, Gods and Kings shows up on your Civ 5 DLC list, BTW.

The only way you can play Gods & Kings without Civ V is by downloading the demo.

Doesn't look like GMG's support is going anywhere. I'm thinking that I am locked because my wife and I are using the same address. Is anyone willing to purchase the expansion and PM me the key? I can PayPal the money. Just let me know.

They don't seem to like people having multiple accounts or otherwise buying mutiple copies of the same game so I could see them blocking buying the same game from another account with the same address or credit card.

In your case it's legit but I could see people pulling shenanigans with multiple shill accounts to resell keys.

I do think Gamersgate's two copies per account is more reasonable since people may want to get a second copy for their spouse or kid or friend or whatever.

Yeah that's what I'm thinking, too. I'd try with my parents' address/credit card, but they're afraid a $3.15 transaction will lead to their entire life being stolen on the Internet...

Agreed, I bought The Book of Unwritten Tales: Deluxe Edition (when it wasn't on sale mind you) for a CAQ's Extra Life fundraiser, then when the game did go on sale I couldn't get it for myself because there's no price on the games page or buy button. So, I can either buy the standard edition, and get the upgrade pack on Steam, or wait for the deluxe to go on sale on Steam. However, if Steam didn't offer an upgrade pack for the deluxe extras (as it doesn't with a lot of games) there'd be no other option than to wait for steam to put it on sale.

Anyone who wants a 72-Hour guest pass to The Secret World, just PM me your email.

SO I played Civ 5 my first time didn't enjoy it. Thought hell I would give it another shot after beating Xcom EU. I sunk about 7 hours into it last night trying to expand my Japanese Empire. Haha.

Instantly bought God and Kings at that price after watching a video on it adds religion, espionage, and a bunch of other new leaders and units it seems.

Not sure who told you this but as others pointed you need Civ 5 as the base game. There are a lot of deals floating around, including people who have extra copies in the Steam trade thread if you want to pick up a copy.

Wow $3.15 is a freaking steal for G&K. Holiday 2012 has been killing it on the digital storefront on both PC and Console.

We can learn as much, if not more, from bad games as we can from good ones.

That's my justification and I'm sticking to it.

I can't seem to checkout. Trying to get Gods and Kings, but every time I click Checkout it just stays at the basket after refreshing. Help?

Happen to me earlier the message isn't obvious its in the same text as the basket information. I finally realized after hitting checkout about 10 times it was there.

Civ 5 G&K for $3.15 is live

I feel a little less crazy knowing that I wasn't the only one who stayed up to get this. I waited til 4am, hit refresh several times, bought the key and went to sleep. Haha.

This is FrontPage on Slickdeals now, so I'm guessing they'll run out of keys soon.

^_^ I'm glad I wasn't the only one (I'm PST as well). I was playing BL2 when I noticed it was 3:15 and I was feeling ready for bed. I decided to stay up an extra bit to catch G&K at the start, fearing they's run out of keys by the time I got up.

Crusader Kings II for $7 sounds good to me... though I do wonder whether I'll be sad that I don't have all the DLC. Should I hold out for the collection maybe being $12.50 again on Steam?

The 2K Strat pack seems like just as good of a deal if you can get it for $15, if you don't have any of the Civ games to start with.

Amazon has had it on sale a # of times too. Personally, I'd wait for a deal on it that included dlc.

The collection hardly has any DLC. Buy the CK2 for $7 and buy the DLC individually when they're 75% off (you'll get more DLC this way).

For some reason GMG will not accept my card for the purchase of Civ5 Gods & Kings. If anyone can help me out I can do Amazon GC now or paypal Jan. 2 when my transfer is completed. For the $3.15 with the coupon code. PM please, thanks.

Thanks Zyrin!

Try buying it through a mobile device. It worked for me (and others).

With the game? I don't believe so. The DLC has been 75% off separately several times though.

I have over 150 hours on CK2 and have all of the DLC and I would recommend that you get the base game, Sword of Islam, and Legacy of Rome (and maybe Ruler Designer). The rest of the DLC is cosmetic - country flags, character portraits for different areas of the world, and songs (+ a DLC that makes it so Aztecs invade Western Europe as the Mongols do Asia/Eastern Europe). I like all of the DLC, but other than SoI/LoR I wouldn't really recommend it immediately.
