Looks like the daily deal is Dead Space 1 and 2 for 75% off $5.00 each.
They also have Dead Space 1+2 80% off for $8.00 ($6.39 if you have the 20% off compensation discount.) That is a really good price for Dead Space 1 + 2 =)


Also it looks like they gave everyone who had the old Sacred 2 Gold Edition with securom a free DRM version as well.

Good news and great price on that DS 1 and 2 pack. Insane price after discount. Already have them both or I would jump on that.

Wow great deal on that Dead Space 1 + 2. Never bought off of Gamersgate before. Could someone purchase using their 20 percent off and send me the keys? Not sure if that would work or not.

These aren't Keys I think. DS1 says "Securom" and DS2 says "other"

And oddly, the DRM free version of Sacred 2 Gold looks to be giftable...

Yea they basicly hooked people up with a second copy for free which was nice of them =), even nicer for me because I never revealed the codes for my securom version =)

Not sure if I should go with this for $6 or Steam.

Well considering Steam didn't discount them at all this Winter sale it may be a safe bet to grab them now. (I'm 90% sure this statement is true. I know Fallout definitely didn't and I thought the Dead Space franchise as well received no discounts.)

It's the best deal I've seen -- I'm just worried about SecuRom.

It just says SecuRom on the page so I don't know if you can register it there.

I don't think I have any games with Starforce and I haven't heard anything about it.

It works like this:
you have 10 (more or less) allowed installation, if you happen to format without deactivating the license on that machine you've permanently lost that licence (and you still have 9 of them, of course), Bioshock was like that for example.

more games with that protection here:

That's shitty. I might actually have one game with it then since I have the non-Steam version of Bioshock (but I won't ever download it since I now have it on Steam).

Whoot. I have a copy of the new DRM-FREE Sacred 2 Gold in my library.

Dead Space 1+2 is tempting at $6 even through I'm not that into FPS or horror. :lol: The cheapeast they've been on steam is $5 each (or $10 for both). GG & Amazon have a policy of issuing new keys if you run out of activations.

King Arthur Complete is $6 w/20%. KA1 (steam) + DLC. KA2 (DRM-FREE) + DLC).

Tractor Battle 2012 Agricultural Simulator 2012 is ~$5.30 w/20%. DRM:Other

That King Arthur bundle is pretty good, but I'll wait for amazon on that.

Actually, DS2 was free last year during the Amazon EC promotion.

I think it's another one of those US-only prices.

Just search for "dead space". It's the second result.

It shows as 100% discount. Not interested though, thought it was Steam. I guess it's not possible to get Dead Space for Steam outside of Steam. Thanks!

That doesn't work folks outside of the states. You can experience this by trying to search gamersgate.co.uk. (Sacred 2 Gold used to only be on the UK side of GG. Neverwinter Nights 2 Platinum Edition currently is only available on the UK side -- try to find it.) The international comments are quite interesting as it can get quite specific. I remember one super deal that was only available to one bloke in Singapore. One of the really interesting comments came from a guy Puerto Rico (odd ball legal status, US Territory -- laws treat them as both US and non-US).

Yea sorry I was on my phone and made a quick reply. I wasn't aware GG hid games from certain regions.

If it doesn't say Steam then it does not activate on Steam. GG is one of the few places that sells non-steam versions of Paradox games.

as long as it's drm free, I don't see any problem. You can "decrypt" the installer and keep it on your hdd/usb
