Isn't there a new 5% code? I thought it was another "Elder Geek" code but different from the expired IAMANELDERGEEK.

I remember trying it on BC's but they fixed that loophole. Still, I haven't seen it mentioned since and 5% is 5% for those without the 20%.

It's "elder-geek.com", which is an actual site - not sure what their affiliation is with GG.

Also, from what I can see you can no longer apply discount codes when buying BlueCoins.

Did anyone else who sold Bethesda/Star Dock gift bundles have their buyer's bundles removed and not get refunded? Two people bought Bethesda gifts from me and told me they couldn't get keys when everyone else did. I sent in a support ticket asking why they couldn't get their keys (and I assume they probably did as well) but I never got a response, and the bundles were removed from their accounts. And I wasn't refunded for my gift purchases, which were made in the same transaction as the bundle in which I accessed my own keys back in December.

GG keeps getting worse. It hasn't even been a month since our 20% bonuses were added, and yet we're already seeing exclusions to the "everything" they promised it would work on. I imagine the GG offices are run by blindfolded monkeys, and their public relations manager is a coprophilic chimp.

Yeah, I noticed that and that it doesn't work with BCs.

But not everyone has the 20% and I thought mentioning it again would benefit them.

That really sucks. They are also pretty bad about hiding behind their CS and still claiming it is backed up. I would suggest to post on their facebook page asking about the issue or maybe twitter. They either owe you a refund or keys.

Beyond Divinity was actually free on GMG/Crapsule last summer.


Oh wow, the steam forum is really bad "paying for a thumbnail on steam instead of free games"

It's been 39 days since the Bethesda glitch. Paypal gives you 45 days to file a dispute.


With a credit card, you generally have 90 days from when you got the erroneous statement. Paypal is not the only option here.

That said, it's likely the best one. Gamersgate's records have got to be a complete mess. It's not like they want to give refunds to people that got keys while withholding them from people who did not get keys. They might not be able to figure out what is up with your orders and payments and the status thereof with the records that they have. A paypal dispute and claim might be the quickest and easiest way to get things resolved.

IMO, it may be speedier to ask them to submit their own tickets so their account and order information is more easily accessible and verified by GG's CS and appears as a plea direct from a needy customer. Asking for help for a third-party seems like it would receive a lower priority.

I like how one paragraph you are suggesting they delay using their dispute options, then the next paragraph agree with me. Makes no sense.


Read again. I didn't suggest anyone delay. I pointed out that Paypal's deadlines are not the only ones that matter. If sometime next month someone realizes they didn't get a pack that they paid for and never got a refund they are not without recourse because they are past Paypal's dispute timeframe.

Oh yoo gaiz.

People should just do whatever they feel comfortable with and think is reasonable.

FWIW, I went the Paypal route and I don't regret.

As has been pointed out, the first level of a Paypal dispute just sends a message to the merchant. Paypal doesn't even look at it and they never will until and unless you escalate it so there's very little risk or obligation in opening a Paypal dispute.

I'd agree but tack on an addendum that there is no good reason to not find a dispute reasonable. Dispute processes (through Paypal, credit cards or whatever) are not just for cases of fraud. They are just as appropriate for fixing mistakes that aren't (for whatever reason) handled by the merchant directly.

Curious to see if GG would have the new Skyrim DLC, I noticed that all the Bethesda products are gone from the GG catalog. At least any Elder Scrolls games, Dishonored or Doom 3 (aside from a non-BFE Mac edition).

All the games from the pack are no longer in the catalog. Neither are any other Bethesda games, as far as I can tell. Quake is gone. Some Mac stuff is there, but those are under Aspyr.

Bethesda items disappearing from Gamersgate was not exactly unpredicted.

After the glitch, maybe Bethesda was not too happy with them

And, Ridge Racer Unbounded goes even cheaper $10.20 (~$8 w/20%) I like it. Imo, the DLC cars aren't worth $2.50.

Hmm Crysis Max $6 now that's more appealing, since I only have a GTX 260, and a lot of people rage against Crysis 2.

Question, aren't the DRM-Free versions on GG based off the GOG bersions? The Divine Divinity page on GG ststes the version as 1.00.61A, but it's wiki states this:

The game was re-released in 2004 along with Beyond Divinity as a part of Beyond Divinity: Deluxe Edition. In 2009 a remastered version of Divine Divinity was released as a download on GOG.com, the main change being support for higher resolutions.[7]
In 2012 it was noticed that the source code of the remastered version 1.4 was lost because of a backup failure. Later released Digital Distribution versions are therefore based on the older 1.29 source code and incorporate less bugfixes than the last retail version 1.34a.[8]

So, GOG has the latest source code version, but GG's stating their version is still way behind even the 1.29 (last backed up version besides GOG's true latest build). I'm confused. it also begs the question of which version Steam ended up with.

BTW, GG is 33% off'ing the Divinity Series this week: http://www.gamersgat...ivinityspecials

My (GOG) Divine Divinity states 1.00.61A on the title screen and I can set it to 1920x1200 (my screen res).

Stay tuned for updates.

Is that $6 after discount? (I can't see it - it's not available here.)

Crysis 2 has many faults.(And Linearity IS NOT ONE OF THEM. IMO) but it's STILL very worth playing.

C2 in DX11 with high resolution textures and fixes from Maldo Blow Crysis 1/Warhead (even modded)out of the water in so many ways.

Thanks for your input on C2. I'm not an FPS fan (BL1&BL2 say otherwise) but I'm just curious about the Crysis hype. My GTX 260 (DX10) however won't show off all the bling-bling of C2, which is why I have more of a bias toward just picking up Crysis/Warhead.

I don't hear that much Crysis hype beyond amazing graphics.

I'm sure it's a good game, but I literally never hear how fun it is or isn't brought up... anywhere.
