Im not living in fear, wtf are you talking about man. This isnt some old hippy conspiracy theory. I dont want paypal connected to my bank account. Simple as that. I have a card that is plenty good enough. I use paypal np from every other website on the net that Ive ever tried. Even some from friggin china. I dont need GMG to protect me and require extra crap connected to my bank account.

I would ask your bank to stay on the phone while you try to process an order on GMG. They should be able to see it and flag it as not fraudulent. It is a little bit of a pain but I did that with my bank once and have had no issues since.

In other news, OP is updated with the Saints Row deal. Great game, worth $20 easily.

LOTR code doesnt work anymore. Was only a 24 hour thing. I had a few hours to resolve the issue and couldnt get anywhere. The manager at the bank said it doesnt even show as attempting to charge anything. There was no decline or anything on my card. She basically said they arent even attempting to charge me.

Still pissed. Was such a good price on a game my son really really wanted.
Im not only a cheap ass gamer. Im a cheap ass mutha fucka!

Updated the OP with the Batman deal. However, a word of caution for people before purchasing. The patching process for this game through Capsule is AWFUL. It uses GFWL for the game but it will not find the correct directory; this means you have to install the patch manually using a cmd prompt. Oh and the install directory they use is called "Batham" instead of Batman.

The price is good but Capsule really sucks.

I'll just chime in and say the manual GFWL patching really isn't difficult at all. When GFWL fails to find the directory, it tells you exactly what the command prompt you need to enter. Since it's still saved in my run.exe history, this is what it was for me:

"C:\Users\V878\AppData\Local\Microsoft\XLive\Updates\57520fa0\Content\Setup.exe" /f "C:\Program Files (x86)\CapsuleGames\Batham Arkham City - PC\Batman - Arkham City"

Replace V878 with your Windows user name. Also, you DO have to include all those quotation marks or it doesn't work. It may not be the same for everyone (I'm on Vista 64 bit), but hopefully this general guideline helps anyone who may be confused.

I do agree that Capsule is fairly awful though. They needed me to free up 50GB on my hard drive just to install Arkham City, which seems just a tad ridiculous. Fortunately, thanks to manual patching, I didn't need to run Capsule for anything else besides installing the game for the first time.

sound horrible :drool:

why don't u just activate the key on GFWL and download it from there? Can't the cd key from GMG be used on GFWL at all? What about borrowing a retail disc from your friend and use it to install and activate Batman? would that work? :cry:

I couldn't find a way to activate a key on GFWL and download it from there. If the option still exists they seem to have hidden it well since they rolled everything into XBL. Or I am blind which is possible as well.

I haven't been able to find a place to redeem keys in the Marketplace client since they rolled it into the XBL stuff. If there is still a way to do it I would love to get away from Capsule on this game.

The manual patching takes literally 5 seconds to set up after the patch downloads. I think the bigger issue it just dealing with Capsule if you ever need to redownload the game. I'll probably just end up rebuying the game on Steam when the inevitable GOTY edition is on sale for $7.50 or so. Game already has about $20 worth of DLC out already, so won't feel too bad about rebuying it later down the road to get all that stuff.
