their strategy seems to have worked for this guy

That picture is woefully outdated. Sure he did nothing before getting it, but after he got it he sure did plenty (see: drone strikes). They really should take it back, even if he only got it in the first place for "not being Bush".

 

Edit: Sorry, sorry. Regardless of political ideology, you have to admit he didn't deserve it. I remember being at college when they announced it, and people literally booed at the news. Even back then everybody knew it was ridiculous (he was in office, what? Less than a year?) , nevermind the fact that he's done a lot of "not peaceful" stuff since then.

I blame Sunasun. I think we'll be okay though. No comments are flavoured with partisan bias, it's just the idea of any president getting a Peace Prize after less than a year in office is ridiculous considering he hadn't done anything yet or during his time as a Senator, nevermind one that has a hard-on for drone strikes (not to imply any of his former competitors would be any better about it). I'm sure the Nobel committee has some egg on their face now.

Enough off-topic discussion, can we just get back to talking about shitty games in shitty sales/bundles?

...and how bad/awful/decent the deals, sales and bundles have been lately.

 

Also, Fuck  the nonexistent GMG credits! I think some of us are just doomed to never buy anything from GMG again.

Not even candy? Jeez, I wouldn't want to be that guy's neighbor.

 

GMG/Playfire is still fucking you over too? They're still playing dumb when I talk to them, and now they're just plain ignoring me. What's the deal, honestly? It's like if you can't solve your own issue, they ignore you hoping you'll go away. Fucking worst support I have ever experienced.

 

Granted I haven't dealt with Steam support, but even then I've heard some good experiences with Steam. They're painfully slow, but at least they solve the problem... sometimes.

That's actually a really good place for that sort of talk.  People go on and on for pages on both sides.

There isn't no good place for that kind of talk... But it sure beats this thread.

Anyhow, is there anyone who wants something from GMG but lacks the 10 dollar minimum? I'm thinking of getting something but can't hit the 10 dollar mark myself.

Wow, did not know that place existed on here. I already have a place for such talk, but thank you. Some of the topic titles are pretty funny.

 

I didn't mean to steer this too much into a political discussion. That Peace Prize thing just really grinded my gears back then and it grinds 'em now, just blowing off a little steam about it.

Yeah, I'll hush up as long as no one posts something similarly infuriating.

I think he's saying he'll split the purchase with you, but you gotta pay your share. There's a good chance you're probably joking, but just in case you're not. :bouncy:

 

If the Skydrift DLCs were on sale at GMG, I'd take you up on your offer, Inmate. Really surprised Kalypso stopped at just BundleStars and Gamersgate this weekend.

I think you should reconsider, but as long as you can access the storefront, the game key you get will be for your region.

Spent my $8.12 Playfire rewards on Bioshock, Minerva's Den and Darkness II.

 

Only cost less than $2 real money.

 

Playfire will surely not last forever. How can GMG keep giving out virtually free games like this?

Havent heard anything about it, havent really done any research on it either. Was mostly going to be an impulse buy since Diablo 3s expansion blows

most people probably dont own 95% of the games in the promotion like cags do, and boot up said games specifically to get the rewards

Well I hope it carries on forever. This is freaking awesome. It's forcing me to play and finish games in my backlog and then gives me cheap/free games to backlog until they have rewards.

Ummm - you didn't get into any of the recent ESO Betas, did you?

 

No NDA's when I played - so, I'll speak on it.

 

If the Beta is any indication from the 10 hours or so that I spent with it, ESO is mediocrity AT BEST. ESO isn't sure if it wants to be a SP game or a MMO - as it tries to do both, but it fails at being good in either category. While ESO's performance was not good in the Beta and the game having bugs are kind of expected for a Beta and can be overlooked a bit b/c it was in Beta - it's the boring questing; not-so-great voice-acting (sounded phoned-in, to me); and writing so "meh" that this even makes Bethesda look like Gods at writing dialogue + prose that ALL really turned me off w/ this game.

 

I hope the game and its first 10 hours got overhauled since the Beta, which I played a few weeks back. But to me - things didn't feel promising.

 

God knows how old that ESO Beta build was...

But If it's in a similar state of the Beta - this thing looks like it's ready for B2P or F2P.

Laf. I bought Minerva's Den on GMG. Didn't have enough credit for BS2, figured I'd just grab it some other time since it's always going on sale. Steam won't let me activate it. I had no idea that restriction was in place. Seems pretty arbitrary.

On Steam, you must have the BASE-GAME activated on your account BEFORE you activate any DLC's and EXPANSIONS.

He's right, but it doesn't make sense. Maybe a few years ago, but DLC is a big enough thing now, and it goes on sale separately enough from the base games that it doesn't make sense to restrict people from activating DLC codes for a game they don't have yet. Keep them from installing/playing it, sure, but buying/activating it? There's no upside to that restriction.

It means you have to buy the game. Maybe now that you have the dlc that you can't activate, you'll buy the game quicker than you would normally. Maybe even before it hits its next big sale.

 

That's why they do it that way.

You'll be glad you didn't activate DLC first, if somehow you say get your hands on a Bioshock 2: Complete Edition key.

(Does that even exist now?)

 

That way, you can do something w/ your un-activated key - give it away, trade it, whatever.

 

Most games on Steam, if you activate say a bundle-key that contains also something you've already activated - you don't get an extra key.

It goes to WASTE. ;(

 

Very rarely, does Steam give you extra copies from activations:

OK, maybe it'll MAKE more SENSE IF I make different WORDS CAPITALIZED this time?
 

HE's right ABOUT that. It JUST makes sense WHEN you think ABOUT it.
