75% or bust


My feelings exactly. Plus I just bought a few casual games for a buck or less at half price books so these seem overpriced in comparison.

I don't know; ain't got 'em.

But, I wish AshesKitty would speak on this...
I hope she has played these racing games - since she plays TONS of racers...

Sorry I've been on vacation so not keeping up with CAG as much as usual. GTR Evolution is one of the best liked (stand alone) expansions to RACE 07. It adds GT cars to the RACE 07 tracks, including Corvete C6, Dodge Viper. Audi R8, etc. Race On adds Laguna Sec and Okayama (two tracks I'm partial to) and a few muscle cars. These are both RACE 07 expansions on the same engine, so expect a real Sim racing experience on one of the best PC racing Sims (and certainly the broadest set of experiences in one Sim).

I'd also point out that steam has run a full SimBim (RACE 07 Dev) pack in summer and winter sales for about $25.

I wish GG would match some of these others and add XCOM to the Bioshock preorder. With my 20% off and XCOM and free DLC(Id use my blue coins on the season pass) I would love both games for $48.

Just cave in and add XCOM, considering your spotless track record, I doubt anything could go wrong!

Your wish has been granted and then some...
The bad = 20% Beth/BL2 discount will not work

The good and what you get:
-Bioshock Infinite with Pre-order goodness
-Bioshock 1
-Choice between: Bioshock 2, Mafia II, Civ V, Spec Ops The Line, Darkness II
-Xcom: Enemy Unknown

Real Cost: $45.41
Blue coins back: $15.97
Final cost: $29.44

The catch to get that price, buy from gamersgate.co.uk using BC.

I haven't even finished the first one and I am considering this...

Alright, found a loophole to get Bioshock Infinite and Xcom for around $20 if you have the 20% off from the Beth glitch (Assuming you'll use the Blue Coins)

1. Go to the UK site. http://www.gamersgate.co.uk/
2. Add Bioshock Infinite and your free game. It should be 30 pounds.
3. Go to checkout and remove your free game (Bioshock, Spec Ops, Mafia, etc).
4. Go and add this game. http://www.gamersgat...-us-sprite-pack
5. If you did these steps, the 20% off should be active.
6. Checkout. Total will be around $36 - the $16 or so in BC
7. Now go back and try to preorder Bioshock; it'll let you chose your free game (Bioshock, Spec Ops, Mafia

Wow, I made my post tongue in cheek, but it looks like GG took it to heart! I jumped on this and with 3 free games and the $16 in blue coins towards the season pass, all for $36, I am in heaven!

I owe you a big sloppy kiss for your easy to follow instructions.

Is the code 16 digits? If so, it might be a code for the Bioshock Infinite web game. A lot of sites are giving out free stuff for that game with a preorder, so the code you got might be for that. I preordered at Greenman Gaming, and the code they listed for "Bioshock Infinite" is actually for the web game.

Worked like a charm, thanks.

I actually have a Bioshock: Infinite code from the AMD bundle but, [someone already asked to buy the B:I code], it pretty much results in free XCOM for me.

Plus an extra copy of Spec Ops since I already owned all the selections.

Probably Spec Ops or Mafia II. Both go on sale for around $8.

Civ V seems to go on sale cheaper and a lot of people who don't own it yet want a bundle with the DLC. Bioshock 2 is virtually valueless. Darkness II seems to be a sub $5 game these days.

So the answer is probably Spec Ops or Mafia II but really none are worth much. Which would be why they're free games.

Bleh I took Civ V since I may give to a friend. It was tough choice since I had most of them and I'm not interested in The Darkness II.

Thanks anarchy. Nice work. :)

Pretty good offer. (Especially considering that I got to keep Bet-bundle that was refunded)

Was too lazy to buy BC to save another 0.60€
Paid something like 30€ and got Bioshock, XCOM EU, Spec Ops, The Darkness II (don't know why)

I honestly feel like I'm abusing GamersGate: Betsheda Bundle, Borderlands 2 + Season Pass, and now this offer.

Total I have "lost" 5€ or so...

Corpekata: Bioshock 1 and 2 say steamworks, so yes

I just tried anarchy's method, and they're offering a 20% comp bonus in BC instead of subtracting it from the price. So when I have the two items in my cart, it shows up as being 45,798 BC (their BC values are worth one-tenth of a cent USD) with +20% BLUE COINS (COMPENSATION) = +6,042 BC, for a grand total of +22,034 BC in return. Beats me how $6.04 is 1/5th of any of those numbers.

Still not bad, but I've been boycotting this shit site ever since they began making exceptions to the 20% comp bonus. Can't use it on pre-orders or Blue Coins now. So much for keeping their word.

Yeah, looks like I'd be paying ~$45 for Bioshock Infinite, Bioshock, X-Com and 1 other game. Problem is, I only care about X-Com. I'm sure I could sell Bioshock Infinite and consider X-Com "free" after the blue coins, but it seems like a lot of trouble to get X-Com for free, and would require me to buy something else from them with the blue coins later.

I'm cheap, but this seems like a lot of effort for 1 game. *sigh* Keep hoping for something worthwhile to use my Beth "Discount" on, but it looks like it's just going to be another disappointment.
