Any thoughts on Risen and Risen 2? I keep reading the combat is absolutely horrible. For those that have played is it as bad as people make it out to be?


Risen is available to play for free on Gamersgate VOID. Try it out there and see how much you like it. Or play through it all the way and if you like it then wait for the next Risen 2 sale :)

I'm sorry but games do not attach to your account like origin or steam. Yes, the serial code attachs to uplay but you cant install the game from uplay, you have to download the game from gamersgate/steam.

The only way you can download the game from uplay is if you bought the game from uplay client itself or ubisoft store page. If you dont believe me uninstall your game from steam or gamersgate and it will dissapear from uplay client.


Btw I tested this because it didn't sound right. It is absolutely untrue. Stam copies of the game do function how you mentioned.

However I bought assassins creed 2 from gamers gate. I installed it and it launched uplay with all my other uplay games and asked for a serial number. I put it in and the game worked great and shows up next to titles purchased from uplay directly. So I went a step further and uninstalled the game. I closed uplay and reopened it and the game was till there and had a download tab. I clicked the download button and it started downloading.

It's inconsistent. Some people have gotten their Steam copies to register/show up on the plain Uplay client.. while others haven't (like me).

I agree it's inconsistent with steam. I think other sources will register though.

Hmm, this is strange as I tested it with POP Sands of Time (Gamersgate), ACRevelations (Gamersgate) and The Dust (Steam) and they do not show up on Uplay after uninstalling. I will recheck again with gamersgate copies later on.

AC revelations on gamers gate worked for me the as,e way, so I'm not sure if it was patched in or what.

sounds more like yet another steam bug. That POS has never worked consistently or played nice with any other download client / store.

I remember this was also true for some Impulse games. Non-steam versions would grant you a free Impulse version, steam versions just were unwilling to work.

Hey I'm looking to sign up for Gamersgate void service. It looks like if someone wants to recruit me for it then they'll receive a day off the cooldown time of their slot. Send me a PM if you're interested in inviting me. Otherwise, I'll just sign up on my own. But I figured that I should throw the opportunity out first.

I'm in this boat. Heroes of Might and Magic 6 shows up in the Steam launched UPlay but regular UPlay launch only shows me Settlers 7 and Assassin's Creed Revelations.

Again. I'm not saying its supposed to function that way with Steam. In general Ubi games from steam don't appear to register on uplay.

What I am saying is that Ubi games with serial numbers purchased elsewhere appear to activate on uplay. It may not be 100% but there is a very good chance.

Killing Floore is also under $5. Kind of tempted to use up my remaining blue coins on it.

GamersGate is awesome. Assassin's Creed 3 Deluxe was $64.99, before anything like IGN discount. And they give you 30% back in Blue Coins. This is the kind of deals that completely killed steam for me :D

Also, Settlers weekend looks tempting. Anyone can recommend any of the Settlers game? Never played any of them.

Settlers 7 is pretty good. I would recommend if you have interest. 5 and 6 not so much.

A discount code for 30% off Dark Souls just dropped on Twitter: DARK-SOULS-TWITTER-GGW43

It stacks with the IGN discount for a final price of $21.97, which is the cheapest I've seen the PC version so far.

Ooh, that's awesome to know. The GG deal could still be better for those with a bonny pile of blue coins, though. :)

30% off Gods & Kings Civ V expansion with code CIV5GK-GOLDEN-JOYSTICK. If public education taught me how to math good, that's $21 after discount (plus whatever the IGN discount is).

Might be cheaper during one of the upcoming holiday sales hither and yon.
