Picked it up, the translated site is making it seem like it's just the beta, along with the fact that the key registered as beta.

Download expiration date is up to 2013 年 1 月 31 日. After this date will no longer download Hitman sniper challenge (you can play, not just about be downloaded within the deadline expiration).

$3.75 with this voucher: GMG25-1BW0K-K1A3G

I don't think it'll be cheaper anytime soon. If you don't have it yet, now is the best time to buy it.


awesome! i've been waiting for something to use my gmg credit on.

Yes, I know, but at this moment those keys redeem the same game as retail ones, as you can see in Steam registry:

http://cdr.thebronas.../sub/apps/14640
Also on that site is sentence that those keys are restricted to Japan, but, as we all can see, it's false.

Yeah I think the Hitman offer has ended. My friend tried it and it took him to a different page to me.

Re: the "Terraria announcement" from a few pages ago, it's not Humble Bundle related. They're releasing it on XBLA and PSN+. Interesting move, I might double-dip.

I've tried getting in on this deal four times now. Tried PayPal and Credit Card and nothing works. I keep getting errors. This was the first time I tried to use GMG. It was also the last. I'll just wait for gamersgate or steam to match the sale eventually.

It's worth noting that a couple of days ago one CAG reported games from GMG being removed from their Steam account (2K told them that GMG were not a legitimate Steam reseller) and also a few days ago another CAG was banned from posting GMG bargains on EA forums - EA told them that GMG were not a legitimate Steam reseller. So don't worry too much about missing this "deal". ;)

I used to tell people that GMG would probably be perfectly safe for in-stock Steam keys. I don't say that any more. :-#

The guy bought a key from someone that said they got it from gmg. EA bans people for sneezing. 2k probably doesn't know their head from their ass, gearbox verified on their forums gmg preorders would recieve the preorder bonuses.

People have issues with their banks not gmg. If people just take two seconds and speak to their bank before making international orders all should be well.

The first order you place when you create an account won't be able to advance to checkout until you verify an email they send. For some reason, after clicking checkout, the page does nothing and doesn't indicate that anything is wrong. I logged out and came back to gmg a short bit later and I think there was some text on the main page indicating my account could not place an order until I verify the email.

Perhaps this is your problem. I also did not have to call my cc before placing the order, but about 30 minutes later I received a fraud alert phone call where I merely had to verify the charges.

I'm sure you're right...but it's not even worth the two second hassle. I'll just wait.

Man, I really hope Mark of the Ninja finds it's way to Steam. I'm still mad Shadow Complex never did, it was one of my favorite games of this generation and the only reason I miss my 360.


edit-- Spoke too soon. Just found this post on their official forums and it sounds promising.

This.

I would gladly pay $20 for a PC version of Shadow Complex on Steam.

I bought it during the Gamefly sale. I enjoyed it, but it does involve a large number of jumping puzzles and the controls aren't as tight as I liked. I had many puzzles that took a dozen tries just because the jumps are so hard to nail and I would miss one almost at the end of the sequence and have to start over.

That said the checkpoints are very generous and I never got that frustrated with the platforming. I enjoyed the voice over work and the overall charm of the game. Definitely worth getting while it is on sale.

I'm so glad you posted this. I was planning on getting it on 360 today but since it seems as though it's coming out on PC, I'll happily wait.

Snapshot is pretty boring, if anyone was curious about it. It's just a really straightforward puzzle platformer and it never offers an incentive to keep going, really.

Maybe it's worth to ask devs about putting the game on Greenlight?

I think the Hitman keys are still being given out at the Japanese Square-Enix Members site. I registered, then followed through with the log-in and submitted my birth date on this form without a problem. I'll make a follow-up post if I actually get the key.

Dammit. I bought the base game when it was on sale at Gamefly for $3.75. Should have waited a little longer. =/


Same. Small consolation is by the time it gets to the top of my backlog, the DLC/SP will be really cheap.

I think the issue with Shadow Complex is licensing rights with MS. There's enough of an established fanbase that they wouldn't need Greenlight.

Terrarria is $2.50 during the holiday sales anyway so it's not a total loss that it will not be in the humble bundle.

Instructions for setting up the new built in install location changer. Nice that they added this feature, especially for people with SSDs.

don't take it personally is a SLIGHTLY more traditional style VN, with the added social networking stuff providing a similar pace-change as the email hopping of Digital, but less constant. There are more actual choices in don't take it personally but they are pretty pointless. There's no failure or game over so I recommend you pick any "cool" choice.


It also bears to keep in mind that she wrote that game in a month.

Personally, I thought it was decent for a free game, tho you don't get too much insight into the main character, who is mostly an observer. Some interesting commentary on privacy, but perhaps not as focused as it could have been.

I recently finished it, and I'd say it's good enough for 4.99. Nice shooting, fun, not a whole lot variation though. The DLC is pretty lame if you ask me, even for less than 2 bucks.

Armageddon was my first Red Faction game and got me curious about Guerilla, I think I'll bite it for 4.99.

This is big news! Seems it's a little "behind the scenes" at the moment, but hopefully they bring this into the mainstream build soon! :bouncy:

Apparently Lucasarts is now a Swedish indie developer, as Lucidity is in this pack.
