Ok so it does but it doesn't...

Nobody here knows? Really?


The copy I bought in one of their previous sales is DRM-free. This may have changed, but I highly doubt it since Velvet Assassin has been on Steam for a while, and was at the time I purchased it from them. That leads me to think that their copy is DRM-free, no Steam key. If someone finds something that contradicts this, let me know so I can hassle Amazon for a Steam key. =P

I got all excited when I saw the Call of Duties on the list, until I saw they were all Mac versions :(

Civ V: Gods and Kings is currently showing as unavailable for me - anyone having that problem?

People need to stop worrying about the codes for now. I'm sure it'll get settled eventually. I don't foresee anyone buying 20+ games in January to use said codes on so, in the end, I'm sure everyone will have enough with their various November/December purchases.


^ This. The likely result is that you'll own 90% of what's on their list in January anyway, that and the codes specifically say it's one use per purchase (kinda forced by how you can't buy multiple games digitally at the same time anyway). I'm sure a month and a half is enough time to get the codes sorted out that you might end up using once or twice anyway, oh and I'll also add the following hoping to cut down on yet more pages of the same post, (this thread is getting ridiculously long in the tooth every day):

1. Purchasing Gods & Kings (Civ V) for Mac does in fact unlock the Windows version as well in Steam.

2. The version of Velvet Assassin that Amazon is currently selling has not received Steam codes, and there has never been an announcement saying that they would.

3. Tony has stated that the sale list is incomplete and he is still adding to it, so just wait and stop asking about previously mentioned bundles. He has been really open about the process, and it's even likely that some bundles could get pushed back for a sale in the future (like Christmas). I get it if something pops up on sale and you want confirmation of whether to expect it on sale at Amazon in the near future, but even he many times has stated "If you think it's a good deal, then get it".

I hope this thread can stop being 10 pages longer every day now.

It's really bank dependent. None of my banks/cards hit me up for a surcharge when I use GMG, GG or GGG. I know other people get hit. You might be able to use Paypal to avoid the fees (or so Paypal tells me every time I try to use a card instead of a PP balance).


FYI: My first time purchasing from GMG was this morning and I used my PayPal balance...no fees.


Thank you very much, your input is much appreciated guys.

Thanks for matching Sims 3 Supernatural, AND adding $5 credit.


What store did they price match?

Says unavailable for everyone. The PC version is still priced as normal, so they might be converting it over to have that one on sale as well, to stop the constant questions about the mac version.

MAC ($7.49) Unavailable

Windows Vista/7/XP ($29.99) Available Now

For me:
Metro 2033: 10/10 game. Linear.
STALKER Series: 7/10. Open world, really buggy.


STALKER Vanilla maybe. With mods and patches the game is AWESOME. It needs a proper sequel, with MP option

Agree with Metro 2033, is a masterpiece. Hope Last Light expands the possibilities

BTW, what about the Jagged Alliance 2 version from Amazon. Already have Unfinished business on GoG... but want to replay the main game one more time. It works on Windows 7 64, or should just wait for the Steam version?

Got Hitman Absolution : Professional Edition for USD 29.95 from GMG.

"Rate of Exchange: If this transaction involves a currency conversion, there will be an exchange rate shown above. This exchange rate includes a 2.5% spread above the wholesale exchange rate at which PayPal obtains foreign currency, and the spread is retained by PayPal."

There IS no exchange rate shown above (on the receipt), so I can safely assume that there wasn't any conversion charges.

HA:PE for 30 bucks, my Cheap ASS is proud of me.

Sorry Jeff, I still love you.

It IS US/NA only. There is a way to activate it in other regions but I would NOT recommend that


Suppose you activate Inversion via a US IP, can you play it outside the US after that?

How do we know which games come with a steam key? I am interested in a bunch of games but only if they come with a steam key. Should I assume if it's not listed in the Amazon page as requiring steam then it will not come with a steam key? Thanks!

Someone posted a link with every game that came with one. It's been posted a few times actually.

GreenManGaming.com has Hitman Absolution: Professional Edition Pre-Order (PC Digital Download) for $44.99 - 35% off voucher code GMG35-FGR37-COY0B = $29.25.

My first frontpage deal on Slickdeals :)


Congrats on your first front page deal.

If you want another easy one, next time the TV Series Firefly goes on sale somewhere (even if it's only $0.05 off) post the deal. One of the mods responsible for promoting deals to the front page as a real boner for that show. Can't understand why. But anytime the DVD or Blu-ray series set "deal" gets posted, there is a 1000% chance that it'll hit the front page.

If by Kingdoms you mean Kingdoms of Amalur, the only way you can get that on steam is to buy it through the steam store. Every other version activates on Origin.

That's the word on the street.

I have Velvet Assassin from Amazon DVG.
There's no serial key at all.
It's DRM-FREE.

SS3 is a good one. Modern graphics, old school 'destroy everything that moves' gameplay. Can't go wrong with that one.

Too bad the pirated 'pink invincible scorpion' doesn't show up in legit versions :lol:
