Thanks for the UK/Euro store tip. Needed to get rid of some blue coins just in case...


BTW if you divide the blue coins cost by 1,000 then you pretty much have the price in US $ since 1,000 BC = $1 US. It's easier than converting the currency if you are lazy. :-P

...but they are being CYA PR Bullshit asshats and refuse to say anything be double talk and linking you to that damned page which is also double talk.

I also think it would be nice to know what they are doing before they do it for once.


I think, in this case, that staying relatively silent on their negotiations until there's a concrete solution is better for both them and us. Remember that their rather straightforward "We're getting keys for most of you in January" ended up being premature.

I'm afraid even a statement of their intentions would only leave open the possibility for mass rage if they can't follow through.

Looks like the IAMANELDERGEEK 5% off coupon has stopped working. Wonder if there's a new one or they just realized it applies to BlueCoins as well.

I get that to an extent but I guess the main thing most people want to know is whether or not they will revoke activated keys. I can't even imagine the shitstorm that would stir up but it's rather worrying that they won't take that extreme option off the table.

Yeah... Gothic in my opinion ended with 2.
Risen 1 is a good spiritual sequel tough, at least the first one.

Yeah, they probably caught on to that it can apply twice, thus effectively a 10% off coupon.

I already own Gothic 2/3 from Amazon, but was considering GG's pack to get 1/4/DLCs, then I read this on Metacritic about 4:


LOL, still think they are doing this stuff on purpose? LULZ!

No, 1C is willing to sell a shit ton of their games damned cheap. They would let Tony sell every damned game they own for $15 if only Amazon could figure out a way to get distribute a large number of keys at once. Apparently this is exceedingly difficult for their IT to figure out or something.

Nice... then I'll wait, I own a lot of their games but there's still a lot that it's missing.

Both the G2PO and ElderGeek codes were promotions they had going with particular websites. I assume the ElderGeek code just expired versus being pulled for any reason. It no longer works on items either; I think it's just "done". I'm thankful it lasted through the winter sale season to save me a couple bucks, anyway.

Maybe they're gonna add another code or something, in the end it was just a 5% discount.

I'm guessing whenever the Bethesda keys are up someone's just gonna make a separate thread with title, "THE KEYS ARE UP!!!" and everyone is gonna run over to GG like a bunch of soccer moms at a Macy's sale.

Did they ever make a legitimate response to all the price mistakes? I'm pretty sure they said they would this week.
