AssCreed II Deluxe is $5 on GG:

http://www.gamersgat...-deluxe-edition

Seems like a good deal - does anyone know if the always online DRM is still there in the GG version?
Or if Ubi provides an update to patch it out?

Edit: I guess I should have checked here first:

So guys can we expect that Gamersgate calls Valve (Steam) for revoking keys (Bethesda Pack and Borderlands 2 - 4 pack) ?


If it did happen, it would be Zenimax/Bethedsa that would contact Valve.

I have had games removed from my steam list before. Though it wasn't anything like this. Steam just removed games that it gave us even though it didn't accept our pay.

Using my crystal ball and reading between the lines of that apology makes me think this isnt going to end well

GG dont want to piss off customers. More importantly, they dont want to piss off the publisher. GG might not pay the publisher for the keys they mispriced so the publisher will have to contact steam and invalidate the keys.

GG needs to step up and eat this, its their mistake, not the customer, not the publisher. Instead, they are hiding behind an apology that isnt an apology and refunds that are in store credit.

I have some experience with this, bethesda invalidated my retail serial for Fallout Vegas due to a Gamestop employee reporting it as a duplicate key after id registered it. (The gamestop i used to work in employees would take photos of the gutted PC game manuals and register the serials on steam before the game sold).

I had to jump through so many hoops to prove it was legit. Took 2 weeks and 3 different photos signing different code words on the manual to prove i owned it before they would give me my game back.

If they do this on a mass basis though the results will not be pretty and the press may get wind and run with it. I don't think they are stupid enough to bring that hammer down upon them for Gamersgate's screw up.

Well on the upside, they should have significantly less screw ups for a while because far less stuff will be on sale.

No gift email, no GGate messages, nothing in my order history. Who knows? I never got refunded for Borderlands, so maybe my customer ID ended up on an incorrect list somewhere in Sweden.

Also, what's up with this thread's tags?

Probably mods spotting tag abuse from people whining about the bethesda fiasco so they put those up to prevent more tags from being added.

I don't think 2K, Bethesda and Valve want such a bad amout of bad press and the shitstorm is gonna come over them if they start removing games from people's accounts.

Reviews are locked when I think there's been 500 reviews for the game and they won't be accepting any new reviews. Forgot where I saw it but I know many of the games on my 1C pack can't be reviewed because so many people have bought it and review many of the games in it.

Blue coin are the same as money, but more FUN! :lol:

From what I've read in the Steam forums, they don't have native support, but you can easily get the XBox controller to work with key-mapping programs.

Yeah, I bought it anyway since this was a great discount. I have a Logitech F710 so I might use the Direct Input function for key-mapping. I might try with Xpadder. 8-)

Edit: I've just installed SR1 and as far as I can see, there's a gamepad config in the menu, so it might support it natively. Later I'll try with the gamepad, ran out of batteries lol :)

DirectInput should work just fine. I can't speak for SR2 directly (but GTA:VC & SA, & DMC3 I can), but most games with controller support that pre-date the 360 work great with DirectInput. With Xpadder you lose the advantage of dual analog sticks. DirectInput is a great advantage of the F310/F510/F710.

Yes it does, it's a bit too sensitive tough

I am aware that Front Mission Evolved got less than stellar reviews, but is it even $4 worthy, or no?


It's one of the few modern, non strictly online, mecha games

Same here,

So basically, everytime GG is 404, I "must" have missed a deal (or price mistake). :(

EDIT: back up but 35%, did the MSPR change?

EDIT2: Steam has it for $19.49 (same 35% off)
