Here's a link: http://www.simplygam...KEY-Download-PC

I've not ordered from them and can't vouch for 'em.

Just my $0.02 -- spend them as you see fit.

While you may get a totally working key, there is also the chance Steam will revoke it. I personally never trust these random key sites. If I want a key for something, its GMG or bust.

Not like GMG is the only reputable site to get Steamworks games/keys from. Amazon, Gamer's Gate, Gamestop, Gamefly, and Getgamesgo are always reliable third party merchants.

Personally I haven't used the site before, but it does work out to about $20.00 which is pretty great, not earthshattering. Doing a little research, it seems legit tho.

I know this, but 95% of the time GMG has the best deals, so I pretty much just exclusively deal with them if I'm buying PC games outside of Steam.

Why would steam revoke it? I mean, what are the reasons for steam to do that? stolen keys only? or selling under value is another reason too?

Well, that could be one reason...if it's actually stolen...

or selling under value is another reason too?

Regional pricing can be MUCH different in different territories - especially if you're from the USA and you're buying outside of there in a totally different currency (i.e. pounds).

Also depends on what kind of key you're getting, too - i.e. if it has any sort of region attached to it.
Sometimes they do; sometimes they don't.
Usually, that's enforced by either Valve; and/or 3rd party publishers; and/or game distributors.

EDIT:

Not like GMG is the only reputable site to get Steamworks games/keys from. Amazon, Gamer's Gate, Gamestop, Gamefly, and Getgamesgo are always reliable third party merchants.

And if you live in the USA, they usually sell you keys priced in your own currency of US $, too.

They can revoke the game or ban your account if it is from an unauthorized reseller. I am not saying that is the case for this one but there have been a few sites that sell Russian keys because they are sold much cheaper there to help combat the rampant piracy.

Yeah so I ordered this at 9:30AM Est and haven't gotten a key yet. 15 minutes my ass.

Oh well, it was only $20 and I'm sure it'll be refunded.

Do you personally think there's a high chance of this being revoked?

Maybe, maybe not. For me, peace of mind that I won't log in one day and find my game deactivated is worth a few extra bucks.

I'm with the guys above, there is only a list of 5 or 6 places that I will buy steam keys from.

The game has been out for almost 3 months already, it won't be long before sales in the $25 range are the norm. Nvidia vouchers for the game can be had for $20-$25 still.

I paid near $35 on release (thanks, GMG) and I don't regret it.

Is this site legit? Maybe. Does it make me wonder why a site I never heard of is selling keys for a lot less than the big players who can probably work out better deals with the publisher? Definitely. Is it your money to spend regardless of what I think? Yes, sir.

I agree completely with gnargnargnar. I never buy Steam keys from these kinds of sites (simply games). Just not worth it, and I'd rather know my money goes towards the developers than some sketchy key site.

Thats good to hear. Only keys I have had revoked by Steam where ones I got off Ebay and they always redeemed as being from somewhere in the former Soviet Bloc. :)
