This site is legit? I've seen it before on here but just making sure from folks that have used it previously. Steam won't have problems with a UK key right? (Pretty sure I know this is true bc I bought Empire Total War from a UK site and registered on steam in the past)


The key is for the North American version, so it shouldn't be an issue.

So you didn't buy it. You tried to buy it and got an error. I mean, it sucks, yeah, but if they ran out of keys or whatever and your order was never processed you just missed out on the deal.


but no one ever told me what was going on. no email from them and customer service that is less than instant. i was left to my own devives and had to message through twitter and facebook but still nothing. im sorry but if you are out of keys, LET PEOPLE KNOW. disable add to cart do anything. i think this company is really unprofessional and theres too much sketch about them. not to mention if you have a problem, BBB cant touch them...

How do you even know if an order you placed went through? Do they send a confirmation email? After my purchase, it just sent me back to the front page after processing my payment.

You can check your bank history (not always accurate since some websites have glitches).
In my case, they sent me an email confirmation instantly after purchase.
I can also see the preorder under 'my game' (borderlands 2 in my case).
I see some people not getting an email confirmation though. But I think you should always see it under "my games" if the purchase was successful.

pre-purchased on august 7th, hope i get my key soon


I got my key. checked my email at 9PM EST, there was an email from GMG at 8:12 PM EST with my key. Pre-loaded in less than 7-ish minutes. :applause:

I hope everyone gets their key in time to pre-load. I was just worried about steam servers getting absolutely assaulted upon release lol.

This is the second pre-purchase I have done with GMG. First one I did was Sleeping Dogs, and they had a pretty big issue with that release, they were sending EU keys to US customers I think, but I think they have learned their lesson more or less. Better to be early than have a ton of angry customers hours after release demanding keys.

According to a staff member at gmg everyone who preordered should have keys I have their account. Might take awhile to get the email but should still have the key. This was true for me. Preloading now, my slow internet should still have it by Tuesday :-)

Wish i had held off on the THQ pack now as Metro was the main reason i wanted it. Ill just keep telling myself that Dawn or War, RF guerrilla and Company of Heroes are worth the $7 extra even if I don't play them for years

I can't speak for Dawn of War but Red Faction: Guerrilla was pretty decent, although I think the multiplayer was it's strongest point and I'm sure that is now dead. Company of Heroes is a very good RTS especially if you are a fan of the World War 2 theme.

I swear, GMG's site is so bipolar with their payments. The other day it absolutely would not take my card for Saints Row The Third. Today when I tried to order Metro 2033 it took it without so much as a hitch. Same card. Weird.

Anyway, I also got my Borderlands 2 key so I'm good to go!

Basically - I took the game off sale (marked it out of stock). This meant multiple things couldn't fight over the same set of game data. I then extracted all the keys into a text file form the database and dumped them on a backend server. Wrote a script in NodeJS (heard of that?) which looked up all 'boxes' in the system and looped through them asynchronously and put keys in as required and, when done, dumped me the keys that hadn't been used by that process.

Then... I took that list and pumped it back in for people to start buying again.

The script that sends e-mails doesn't run on the same server - so e-mails will be a bit longer.


That's pretty rad if ya ask me.

Just an FYI but my Borderlands 2 key was in my account a few hours ago but I have not received an email yet. If you are still waiting on your key, you might want to check your account on their site.

Edit: I should wake up more before I post so I actually pay attention to what people already posted. Everybody should have keys in their account. If not, I would recommend filling out a support ticket as something is most likely wrong in that case.

Well , I have been trying to order it for a little while and never got my cards to work with it.

Today I was going to call my bank and work on it , but it seems they fixed it on there end. Ordered borderlands 2 for 36 bucks and got my key at the end of the checkout process. Tossed it into steam and good to go. Now to get my projector screen by tuesday so I can use my new HD65 setup here ... :)

Nice having two days off starting tuesday :)

Thanks for letting us know! I just checked too, and it was there despite the fact I have not received an email about it.

My internet sucks. I'm going to go to a friends house while my wife has a shopping party, dude has fast internet. Can I back up borderlands 2 by copying its folder from my laptop over to my desktop like with a regular game? Or does preloading now allow this. If I understand right, I can still copy the folder, but steams crappy back up program wont do it, which would be fine with me. Hopefully someone has insight into this. Thanks in advance!

You can move steam games between computers by copying their folder. I have done so.

Did the same and I've never bought a season pass before. Getting the game and all future DLC for less than the MSRP of the base game is a steal.

Yes. I know you can do this usually... just wasn't sure if there was anything about preloads that would prevent you from doing this

Is the game showing up in your "My Games" section? If so, I would just contact them about your key as an official company rep said everyone should have keys (just not emails) awhile ago.
