So is it possible to download an ubisoft game outside of the GG download link?

I traded for an unbisoft key, so I can activate the game if I can download it.

Unfortunately I can't download the game since it wasn't initially purchased on my GG account...

Try going to the Uplay store, putting the item in your cart and entering the key as a "promo code". No promises but that was how you activated the Far Cry 3 keys from the "Never Settle" AMD promotion.

Alternately, try the method shown here

The first option (via the store) didn't work, but following the link directions worked great.

Thank you so much! :)

There's a Tutor thread about it so I know it's not just me (don't know if it's everyone though) but GamersGate isn't accepting transactions paid with Blue Coins right now. Tried to buy the Thief Collection and it just sends me to a white page with this URL:
https://www.gamersga...otify/bluecoins

Order status is still "pending" and trying again through the invoice screen gives the same white page result.

Is this true they are not allowing purchases with blue coins? If so they're about to get a paypal chargeback =P

I wouldn't say "not allowing". I don't have any reason to think it's intentional versus just an error that no one has fixed yet (especially with it being the weekend). It's just "not working".

I sent them a support ticket about this yesterday. Glad (or not?) to see it wasn't just me. I ordered two Thief games on Thursday and the order went through fine. Yesterday, I ordered a Primal Fears 4 pack and I thought the order went through, but then I saw and it is pending in my order history and every time I try to complete payment it gives me a blank white page. So I hope they fix this soon I want my Primal Fears!

GG gave some of the folks who experienced the Bethesda-Stardock glitchdrama a 20% discount on any purchase that is supposed to last until the end of 2013.

GG applied a 20% discount good for all of 2013 :argue: to some/most/all :argue: accounts that had a forced cancellation of Beth Pack / GR:FS / BL2 holiday glitches. Some people have the discount, some people don't. Needless to say there are a wide range of feelings on the matter which include: :bs::wall::fridge::beer::twoguns::-({|=\\:D/:whee::bomb::pray:

Unless GG just sends a present of $50 PayPal to everyone involved, I don't think the bitching will ever end.

Even then, I'm not sure.

If they sent $50 to everyone involved, the people that weren't involved would complain that they didn't get $50. They'd have to send $50 to everyone in the entire world for people not to bitch lol.

Front Mission Evolved for $5.99

Has it been cheaper on GMG and Amazon?

Edit:

Also of not - Warlock: Master of the Arcane Collection is 66% off, includes game, soundtrack, and all DLC. Individual DLC is 66% off too. Nice stack with the 20% off if you have it. I know I've seen a lot of people ask about this game and it's DLC in the Amazon thread.

I had hoped I'd awaken this morning to some resolution (with the time zones and all) but my Thief Collection still hangs in Blue Coin Limbo. Looking at the support site, I don't think my ticket has even been read yet. Maybe I should have set it to Super-Ultra Importance.

Did you click on your order and then click the "Complete Payment" option? That's what you have to do to get it to go through, it won't happen automatically. It should process correctly once you do that though.

Yeah, I thought this was a pretty good price for it. Of course GMG probably had some coupon running at the time, but still a pretty good deal.

I did so the other day. I was hesitant to try it again and risk getting double/triple-charged (original, try #1, try #2) and have to deal with getting a refund. Might as well go for the gusto though.

And... that did it. Hey, in my defense, it didn't work 36 hours ago...

Yeah, I knew I'd have an obvious case if I was 2x/3x charged on the same invoice number but just didn't want to complicate the issue. Thanks for the push. Thief Collection is now safely in my library.

Well, some people were bitching because they were supposedly loyal customers and wanted a piece of the cake. There's no reward for loyal customers on Steam, GMG, GameFly, GOG... Yet there are already rewards for loyal customers on GG, and they still whine about. It's just ridiculous.

Just FYI, I picked up the two pieces of Warlock DLC I didn't own with blue coins, without issues. I didn't even need to wait through the 10 min wait period to see my keys (I hate the addition of that wait period).

Yeah, I think the Blue Coin thing was mainly with Thief. At least the reports I heard regarded the Thief Collection. I could be wrong though or maybe they resolved the issue, whatever it was. Not gonna buy a game now just to test it :D
