Ok looks like GMG is going to be having a 28 days of zombie sales. I will update the OP later today with full details.

For now you can go to http://www.greenmang.../promo/zombies/ and use the code EATIN-BRAIN-ZZZZZ for 15% off any of those titles. Some of those may be available using the 20% off code so try that first. This code should also work on Dead Island but the 20% off should still be working as well.


that code doesn't work on Dead Island

I think I'll just wait for another 20% off code and maybe grab Dead Island then

or how would this referral thing work? wouldn't they realize I made a second account?

Dead Island is steamworks correct? Because under the pre-order section i believe you forgot to say that it was


yes it is which is why they have this on the product page

This game requires Steam™ in order to install and run and so cannot be traded or refunded.

I am really torn on Dead Island. I mean on one hand it looks and sounds fun. On the other hand the developer has not had a stellar track record, but Square Enix is publishing it.

I almost want to bite, but I guess I need more information on it.

Need to find out if GMG will give you a refund on a pre-order if you change your mind before release. The site says they can't refund Steamworks games but Steam itself has done it for me before. Want to get Dead Island but also don't want to get burned if it gets horrible reviews across the board.

Watch any of the plethora of gameplay videos out there. It looks like Borderlands with zombies.

About the only thing they can do to botch it is poor co-op netcode.

Yeah, I've watched plenty of videos but without actually playing a demo or something, it's still a crap shoot. With so many games coming out shortly, I don't want to spend $34 on a stinker.

Yeah. I seen the videos and it looks fun but I am still trying to justify $34 on this. Without a demo or anything or a chance at a refund I don't want to end up playing a shitty game.

@justinstyles
I haven't tried the price match before but my understanding is that they price match other deals unless they use a code. EG: If D2D has Skyrim for $10 they would price match that, if they had Skyrim listed as $60 with a code to get it for $10 then they would not price match.

@hotjuicyburgers
That is correct. I try to list out if a game uses Steamworks in the OP. I know that is an important consideration for a lot of people!

@buckythekat
Thanks for the heads-up on the code. Once the 20% one quits working (should last through this week) I will do some follow-up on other codes.

In regards to the second account, I set one up with a different email address and used a different payment method and it worked. I imagine if you use the same payment method it won't work but maybe worth a try.

If you haven't received a key for a product you should be able to receive a full refund. If you would like to verify this with their support team you can contact them here.

Thanks for the link. I asked on their Facebook page but it can't hurt to ask via the request form as well.

EDIT: Just got a response from them on Facebook and they said you'd have to log a support ticket and they'll see what they can do. Probably be like Steam where they will do it but tell you it's a one time courtesy. Gonna think on Dead Island a few more days since the code is good through the rest of the week.

I said Fuck it and preordered Dead Island. I am in love with the concept and that you level up and stuff. Plus I love open world games.

And there's crafting. I love crafting systems personally, I go ape**** over them. Not sure if that appeals to you, but I love everything about the game on paper. No matter how it delivers these ideas, the 20 minute gameplay video I watched was enough for me to pre-order it. =]

I love crafting too. Everything on paper makes me want this game, thus the reason I preordered it. Plus all the gameplay trailers look right up my alley.

Hey. I've heard about Green Man Gaming for a while now, and I'm interested in finally taking the plunge. I just wanted to ask a few questions from those who have bought games through them before I do so, though.

I trust that the site is generally reputable and safe to do business with? Since I'd be using my primary PayPal email address for my GMG account and my PayPal account to order games I just want to make sure it's relatively safe. I don't usually stray from my usual digital game providers (mostly Steam and GOG, sometimes Amazon and Direct2Drive).

I saw someone mention that the 20% off coupon code should last through the end of the week, correct? I'm looking to get the Augmented Edition of Deus Ex: Human Revolution, but I probably won't be pre-ordering it until Wednesday or so. Should the $49.99 (before coupon) price still be in effect, or might they raise the price back up to $59.99 by then? And since the Augmented Edition comes with those bonus items does anyone know if those are also gotten through Steam, or through GMG instead? And I've also heard something about referrals or referral codes that knock an additional amount of the total cost (last one I saw mentioned was $5). How do I go about getting that, and can they be used multiple times? I'm definitely getting DE:HR, but I might also bite on Dead Island since it's Steamworks as well, and if I can get it for $29 instead of $34 that would be awesome.

Sorry for all the annoying questions, and thanks to anyone who doesn't mind answering them.

  • They are perfectly safe to use and reputable.
  • The 20% voucher code SHOULD last through the week, that was the last I heard from them.
  • I can't imagine they would raise the price before Wednesday. Non-daily deals usually last at least a week and mid-week price changes are rare.
  • Not sure on the bonus items but they should all theoretically be attached to your Steam account.
  • As for the referral code you can click on the link in my sig (or anyone else who has a referral sig) and when you signup for an account and purchase something more than $5, you and the referrer will get a $5 credit. This is a one-time credit you receive since it is dependent on account creation.

No problem with the questions, always better safe than sorry. I'll give you a quick run down.

- The site is definitely 100% legit. I haven't heard of anyone getting anything less than a legitimate transaction. These aren't "grey market" keys like you get from CD Keys. No, instead, this isn't much different from something like Impulse or Direct2Drive. The ONLY thing you should take not of, is that it is based in the UK. That means some credit cards get fussy with the transaction. In other words, a card might not go through, either because it's overseas and alerts the fraud department of your bank, or because the bank thinks it's a gambling site, lol. Most cards do work, though. And once it does, you might get a call authorizing the charge, but after that, you're golden. If you pay via Paypal, you shouldn't run into any of those problems. Obviously, anytime you use your card on the net, you put yourself at risk. But this place isn't any less safe, from what anyone can tell, than Steam.

The code SHOULD last until the end of the week. And I'd IMAGINE that the Augmented Edition should be discounted up until closer to release. That said, these are big IFs. In my opinion, it's smart to buy asap. It could go up at any time.

The referral works like this; someone who has an account offers you a link that they have on their account under "refer a friend." If you click that link, it will take you to the GMG mainpage. If you sign up for an account, without moving away from the site, you will be considered "referraled." That said, you won't receive the $5 credit until you SPEND $5. When you do spend that $5 (either immediately or later down that road), you and the person who referred you will instantly receieve a $5 credit on their account. I would certainly appreciate it if you'd consider using my referral link in my sig. But if not, I'll certainly understand :-)

In any case, let me know if you have any other questions!

Uh oh, apparently Deus Ex is region locked. Lots of people are making threads on GMG asking if us USA buyers will be able to register the game on a US steam account, no responses so far. If it won't register I'll cancel my pre-order.... I hope we get a response soon...

I don't see how a Steam key will not work since that's all your doing. I bought Dawn of War II and it came from Amazon but it was a UK copy, worked fine. Why wouldn't this work, and why would Green Man Gaming sell this to American customers.

okay I don't understand this sudden craze about region locked, all Steam games are "region" locked but you just get them gifted from another region no problem (otherwise our German and Australian friends would be screwed)

also have you considered there aren't any responses so far because even in England it's the middle of the fucking night?

No reason to stress out whatsoever. Yes, the game might be region locked. But Steam doesn't work that way. So long as you have a legitimate key, Steam provides you with a game download. Plain and simple. STEAM does the region locking, and won't discriminate based on the key you use.

Don't flip out. I'm 99.9% sure everything will be a-okay.

Calm down. I (and maybe some others here) have never purchased anything from GMG before so we don't know the details of how this works. All I know is that Square Enix posted today that the PC version of Deus Ex is region locked and to purchase it in your own region otherwise it will not register (and GMG being a UK based store). That is why myself and others are concerned.

Thanks for the replies everyone. I'm gonna wait until Green Man Gaming confirms whether or not their Deus Ex keys will work fine for North American buyers like myself before I sign up and pre-order. I just heard about this region lock thing too and I don't want to waste $40.

Did you really feel the need to come into this thread, read someone's concerns for a game that they bought, and post your own troll of a comment about their predicament? Don't bring your personal problems here, period. There's no need to troll a fellow CAG on these forums having not provoked you in the first place.
