Skyrim for 50% off? You're kidding me, right?


Nope! And we ran out of the copies in a crazily short time, even with the hammering our server took!

I think for that second round we sold them all within about 2 hours - it was crazy!

Yeah I don't think I'm going to make any of their flash sales if they keep posting them at those times. I'm in the west coast US so GMT -8. If they're posting things in the morning their time I will never catch those sales since I'll almost always be asleep.

Ah well. I'll probably just grab it on the Steam summer sale or something. I'm patient. And cheap. :-P

Space Marine will be $12.49 starting at Midnight EST tonight and running until Midnight PST tomorrow (3am EST). Fantastic game, especially at that price.

They also mentioned they are having this run until Midnight PST so West Coast people have a full day for the deal so good on them.

Hey guys - the deal is essentially FOR the US, being Groundhog day (which for me is really just "Thursday" :P )

So US customers shouldn't have any problems whatsoever - and if you do you can always submit a ticket or post a message here and I'll see it :P

Wow, you guys aren't kidding about the e-mail address for Paypal needing to match. Same characters but slightly different capitalization flags it too. Wow.

Anyway, got that ironed out. Thanks for Space Marine!

Tried to get in on Space Marine and it was the biggest mistake of my week. First they decline PayPal because it's not verified. I've had that account since 2002 and it's confirmed but not verified because there's no way in hell I am giving PayPal my banking info. So that's useless.

Then I make the mistake of trying to use my Mastercard instead. Not only is the transaction denied but I get a call from my bank's security dept informing me that they've frozen my card for "suspicious activity." Suspicious activity? I dunno WTF GMG is doing but I've used that card to import games from the UK and Hong Kong without any other problems whatsoever. So yeah, I don't care how good their deals are, I'm never going to make the mistake of trying to give them money again.

Hey JamesGMG, I am having a problem paying with PayPal. The site says that my GMG email address doesn't match my PayPal email addy, but both of them match perfectly. It's the only way I can pay and I really want to get Space Marines. Any help?

You do realize that it's your bank who's declining the charge and not GMG, right?

Make sure they match completely, down to the capitalization.

Of course I realize that. The question is WTF is GMG doing that is causing my bank to decline the card when that's not happened with any other UK retailer I've ever used.

You could always ask your bank since they're the ones doing it

Humm.. Maybe you misunderstood. It's not GMG that's doing anything, it's your bank who's declining the charge. You'd have to ask them why they declined it, only they know the answer to that question.

I've had my CC declined because I was in another state due to some sort of security precaution my bank had setup. A quick call sorted that out. I'd suggest you do the same..

Wow, lotta GMG fanboys up in this thread. I'm happy with my bank, thanks, only reason I'm blaming GMG is because they tripped my bank's fraud detection and clearly I'm not the only one from reading this thread. Whatever, there's too many other places to buy games to deal with this nonsense.

I like my bank because they actually know when a company is fraudulent. Its not that we are fan boys we......its not GMG's issue..its yours and your banks. A simple phone call will tell you what the reason is and I would almost bet it had nothing to do with GMG.

Yeah, this has happened to a lot of us but GMG is on the level from my experience. I had a hold put on my bank account too when I first used GMG. I called the bank and told them it was ok and to allow GMG from now on. Haven't had an issue since. I know it's a hassle to call your bank but based on the past deals GMG has had, I think it will be worth it going forward.

lol, yeah we're all GMG fanboys because your bank is declining a charge "NOT GMG" and we're simply trying to point that out to you and offer a way around it. Cards don't just get declined out of the blue or because a charge is coming from a specific vendor. Fraud detection systems are highly complex and factor in many different variables. To go into the specifics would be a waste of time since every system is different.

Here's my suggestion. 1: Contact your bank. 2: Find out why the charge was declined 3: Give them the go ahead to either pass that charge through or allow another charge. Problem solved..
