I did a HDD install. I'm not even talking about technical problems, I mean th game, story, etc. it's a terrible JRPG.

The link I posted seems to have significant gameplay changes that are not related to technical problems. While this obviously does not address any story issues it does look like changes have been made between versions. Perhaps someone who has played both can chime in.

It would also be helpful for others if you could provide more specific examples of things you did not like. Chances are those may not be negatives to some people and can help them make a better buying decision.

100% agree, I'm a avid jrpg player and this has got to be one the worst jrpgs ever, I wanna pull the main character from the screen and choke him for whining too much >_> makes hope from FFXIII tolerable when compared.

Well, now I wish I had gotten all my voucher codes GMG was supposed to give me. Already used the "free" one and they only let you use it once.

C'est la vie.

Meh, I've been curious about this game for a while and I still had a $5 credit from that free game they gave away a couple months ago. So for free, why not? Thanks to whoever pointed this deal out. :)

Yep, FF13 is a masterpiece compared to TLR. Not only is the protagonist the stereotypical whiny boy, the American voice acting is atrocious and the story could be taken out of a book titled "typical JRPG tropes". The equipment system is fucking terrible. You can't even equip the other characters, it has a certain random loot grinding nature to it. You have to fight in the same area for hours in hopes of some rare monster spawns while the character that can equip the item it drops is in your party. And even then, be ready to rage because it may drop the new gear after hours of trying to get it to spawn and you have the character in your party and he doesn't ask if he can have it for some unknown random reason that is not well explained. Also, the side quests are boring as shit and there are probably a hundred hours of repeating the same dungeons with a new door that opened up for the quests.

I guess what I'm trying to say here is that while $3 isnt much money, this game is so bad that you shouldn't play it at any price. You would have a more enjoyable experience playing almost any other game.

If you get this anyway, use an online guide through the entire game, it will save you from hitting your PC with a ball bat when you realize you have to start over if you want the good shit that you missed since every fucking thing is a one time chance per game.

GMG is an International place in London, UK.

So, expect issues.

Talk to your bank or credit card company and tell them to authorize it.
Hopefully, they will.

Though, chances are, you might also get a call VERY soon from your bank or CC company about this transaction that got rejected...


That's what happened to me! They rejected my credit card, saying something about "check your address and try again", so I retried (making sure that I typed everything perfectly this time) with no luck. I get an email from Citi about ten minutes later telling me to call their security hotline about possible fraud. Fun!

In the end, I had to use my bank's debit card to get the order to go through. At least now I know why all of that happened.

So have you played it yet? I'd like to see what some folks here that just bought it think about it. Though I admit that you really have to get a few hours into the game to really understand how bad it is.

Got TLR even though I have it for the Xbox (have yet to even play it there). I'm addicted to PC gaming so I'm more likely to play it on the PC than the Xbox, which is perfect.

I have not. My questions earlier were mainly me being devil's advocate to get some more information for interested people. I think your follow-up post contained much more valuable info that can help people with a decision.

Been eyeing Last Remnant for a while on Steam, but it never dropped far enough. I'm down with paying $0.00 after credit.

Gonna pick up Last Remnant. This will be the first thing that I ever buy on GMG. I understand there is some sort of referral thing that nets the referrer & the referee come cash back. Is there some sort of specific link that I should be clicking on to get the referral? I partially initiated an account creation earlier this afternoon by clicking on the link that Pinkgun gave to the page with Last Remnant. Would that have counted as a referral? If not, I could always just create a new account.

Also, is it just the initial $2 a piece (or whatever the amount is) for the referral? Lastly, just to be sure, the person who referees somebody won't be privy to any personal info of the referee, will he? Having them know my name wouldn't be a deal breaker, but if it gets any more than that I'd have to pass.

Does anyone have some spare credit on GMG? I'm willing to trade a copy of Bastion (tradable) for a key for The Last Remnant, you can get it for $3 if you use a voucher code and if you already have credit in there you could then score a free Bastion :P

Please PM me if interested.

edit; got it, no need for it anymore guys.

Same thing happened to me. Tried 3 web browsers and eventually it worked. Then I finally get to check out and my bank is closed and my card won't authorize. I have a Prepaid AMEX, but the website shows they won't take that either.

Basically just posted the same thing on GAF, but glad I wasn't the only one with issues so I feel less stupid.

Too many hoops to jump through even if some of them aren't the websites fault. Why couldn't this just be 3 bucks during Summer Sale?

A lot of people have referral links in their sigs. Just click on of those and then signup for an account. After you make a purchase you will both receive a $2 credit. No information is shared except the usernames of who referred who.

OK, man, thanks for the reply. Just for that, (and as a reward for maintaining this thread) I'll use your link.

Here's hoping they've fixed the shopping cart problem and I actually get to buy Last Remnant tonight. *Crosses Fingers*

EDIT: I'm running into the same problem with not being able to add it to my cart. Crap.

SECOND EDIT: Oops, I had forgotten to verify my email address. Once I did so, I was able to add it to my cart. Wahooo. :D

I wonder how many people have the same issue? Seems like this payment issue always pops up. When GMG announced their first free game I was so excited to get it I forgot to go through a referral link :( So I missed out on the referral credit. I did verify though and I pay with paypal and never had any issue with the site.

This is my first purchase from GMG... I checked out with PayPal. As soon as I confirmed the transaction on PayPal, it took me to an error page on GMG. I checked PayPal and GMG charged me, but no game has showed up on my GMG account. It's been 15 minutes now.

Is this normal with GMG? Certainly isn't giving me a good first impression...
