OK, admittedly my experience with buying stuff off of GMG is pretty limited, (I've only actually paid for two items over 5 months time) but aside from their countdown timer in the checkout, I haven't had any real complaints with them. Yet I see many people saying that they did the survey to help improve the site. Seemingly implying that the site is plagued with problems. Am I misinterpreting people's comments? Or are there a lot of problems with GMG that I simply haven't experience due to my limited use of the site?

I've heard some people complain about not being able to check out or complete their purchase but personally I've never had that problem so I can't say much more. The only real problem I have with GMG is their stupid Capsule client, but now I've learned to just avoid games that require it, so meh. Other than that they're pretty golden.

A lot of people run into payment problems. Even some who used to be able to pay with out issue.

I've never run into problems other than the site being super slow sometimes.

But others have posted about games being traded in without notice, vouchers not being attached to their accounts, etc.

From a UX design perspective there is quite a bit wrong but the main general user complaints are: key distribution for pre-orders, Capsule being awful, cash back/credit system instead of vouchers and payment failures issues. The technical issues have been getting better and they continue to work on them but I imagine that will be the majority of their complaints.

anyone know if the batman as goty has windows achievements thru steam?

I'm a noob to all this steam/steam works stuff


It uses Games for Windows Live so you'll be getting Achievements that will go towards your 360 Gamerscore.

Anyway, I already own Arkham Asylum on PS3 but I think it's worth this price to have on PC plus grab some extra Gamerscore.

I took the survey to improve the site in that they asked for my feedback. Although my feedback is pretty much positive (never had a payment issue for example), I'm sure they'll add it into the heap and use it for something.

My biggest site issue is fairly minor -- they should do a better job of making sales/vouchers obvious on the front page. I sometimes need to hunt in the blog for the voucher code or, if it is advertised on the main page, it's a graphic and I can't just copy and paste it.

I like that the voucher is good into January. I'm sure some Christmastime sale will make it worthwhile.

I know this is a total First World problem but I feel the same way. I go 'Ugh, an image? Really? I can't copy and paste that and will have to manually typing the whole 8 or 10 characters in or dig through the blog!' :-({|=

That said, as silly and lazy as that may be, it should be easy enough for them to post it on their site as text I would think.

I go through paypal so it's not like they have access to any of my info anyway.

I think the reports of "security issues" were people's banks and credit cards putting holds on purchases because they were international and hence the banks thought the cards had been stolen.

Those were just misunderstandings. No one was scammed or anything like that.

How did you all find out about the survey? It doesn't seem to be mentioned on the GMG site, forums, or blog.

It was in an email they sent out.

So Chivalry is going to be $9.xx on Thursday (Dec. 13th); or is it suppose to be on sale now? Recently got around figuring out what Chivalry is...and I want it now. However, if it's going to be $10 soon I might as well wait.

Hehehe. I feel the same way. I actually usually check this thread for the code after that, so I hopefully don't have to type it even then.

Take a look at this thread, and you'll see issues on almost every page. GMG also had to shut down in a few countries for over six months due to "security issues" (their words), but they seem to have closed those holes. They've shown some remarkable improvement recently, though: is this the first time the thread has had two pages back-to-back with no-one reporting issues? :applause:

I think the reports of "security issues" were people's banks and credit cards putting holds on purchases because they were international and hence the banks thought the cards had been stolen.

No, you can actually ask the GMG staff and they'll tell you about their fraud problems and security issues. Thanks for trying to help, though, it's appreciated. :)

I get most of my GMG information from this thread. o_O Do you think the CAGs are making it up? Personally, I've only had two problems with GMG in the years I've been using them. But I don't find it necessary to lie about issues any store has.

Thank you to all who answered my question about your experience with GMG. I'd quote you all tho thank you each, but there were like a half dozen of you who replied, and that would take up half the page. In any event, Thanks.

As for me, my only real problem has been with the checkout countdown. I have on occasion noticed that the site can get pretty slow at times. But I haven't used GMG enough for that to be truly frustrating. And thankfully I've never experienced problems with payment denials or security issues.

Yea they do, I used the 30% off code on a pre-order and got the 35% off voucher in "My Keys". If yours is not there, I would contact their customer support.

Thanks. I will contact them

Bought Tomb Raider for $29.25 (after taking the short survey, which provided a 35% code).

So apparently I will soon be getting a promo code for 35% off something else which I have 21 days to spend...

35% code WINTR-SRVEY-42012

Code works for all regardless of whether you take the survey or not - here's a link for anyone who's interested in taking it. It's fairly brief.
