Grimrock has been fixed, but TLR is still showing as $0.94


Snagged a copy of TLR with blue coins. Might as well use them since they came for free with the refund of Bethesda pack.

Someone should keep a spreadsheet of all their price mistakes. I suspect it would get quite lengthy.

Anyway it seems as though they shifted their price flip times to when someone is actually there in the office had their coffee etc.

I suppose if you are too incompetent to fix the problem then having the prices flip when someone is there to fix it is the next best thing.

This morning I saw Last Remnant for $0.94 and used my blue coins. I figured it was a mistake but I might as well cash in. Got the key and redeemed it on Steam. I'm not sure if they're going to take it away or what.

I'm not sure how thee guys can stay in business. It's madness that these price screw-ups still keep happening.

They can't take your already redeemed keys, a simple, and very shady, key reseller doesn't hold such power.

The Last Remnant is great, but it was cheaper on gmg.

^This

It's hard to figure out what is the most annoying: Bestbuy not shipping here and price matches to their website being YMMV, or Amazon Prime not including the free streaming videos (which is a bit crazy - I get the physical benefits of free shipping (but not 2day) to an island 1000 miles from the continental US, but I can't get the digital benefits).


The owners of the digital goods give very specific terms to what territories (including U.S. territories) their resellers are allowed to sell to. For Amazon it is probably just easier to negotiate selling to the 50 main states. It reminds me how GMG was asked to actually raise their prices when selling to Australia and New Zealand by 2K directly, so local retailers (who are forced to charge higher local pricing due to import taxes I'm guessing) could compete.

I can't read, which I think is what leads to all these misunderstandings online.

The point I think he was trying to make was that if even people buying from a shady key reseller don't get their keys revoke then it won't happen with Gamersgate NOT that Gamersgate is a shady key reseller. That's not what he said at least to my interpretation.

Edit: to clarify I read it as

They can't take your already redeemed keys, (even) a simple, and very shady, key reseller doesn't hold such power.

However some people seem to have appointed themselves defenders of Gamersgate looking for any perceived slight to run to their defense, even an imaginary one.

Eh, it parses as "GamersGate is a simple and shady reseller" and I was about to correct him myself but then I got lazy. Incompetent and understaffed, sure. Not so much shady.

I think that's a big stretch to make from what he stated, but even then the comparison doesn't really apply.

Authorized retailers do have the power to get keys revoked if need be (Amazon has done it on an individual basis).

I'm not really trying to defend GG as much as just making sure accurate information is put out there.

Why do you care so much about GamersGate? Why don't you just accept that they're a shady key reseller? You're such a Troll Fox.

Admittedly he could have phrased it better but I think the intent was clear.

If you aren't looking to pick a fight on Gamersgate's behalf, that is.

I read it exactly like Fox did and I'm not looking to pick any fights.

I'm looking to pick a fight, on my own behalf, because I feel that I've been insulted. Who wants to fight me?

(Nobody said anything to you, what the Fuck are you talking about?)

I don't know, it doesn't matter though, WHO WANTS TO FIGHT!?

I just put my bulletproof keyboard skin on, and just loaded my mouse with new batteries. I'm ready to roll! Come at me bro!

Okay well then I have a psychic link to DonRamon. Or I'm crazy. Or both.

Or maybe someone could have clarified with him what he meant without ripping him a new one.

Happy hour? My dad always taught me that Happy Hour always starts at 10:00 am and ends when you want it to. Are you saying that my childhood is a LIE!? You wanna go!?

Any chance that the two D&D collection games will be daily deals? I'm not sure if they showed up already.

It doesn't even matter if they don't have the power, they contacted Bethesda and 2K, which I can assure you both have the power to, I hope they don't though.
