I did this the straight out the gate and I'm still in reward tracking hell. We're all just beta testers. I wouldn't be surprised if once it's out of beta, all the rewards go bye-bye.

At least they pay us to beta.  On Steam, they expect you to do it for free or even pay for it on the market.

Hmm. Well damn. It seems everyone is on a different wavelength with this Beta. I thought a big hang-up was creating a Playfire account either before the beta or by not using GMG login info and syncing Steam to that Playfire account. Perhaps my issue was an outlier compared to most Playfire problems. Bizarre.

Our latest set of deals have arrived, and for the next 48 hours you'll be able to take advantage of great discounts on games based on warfare set during the Medieval ages. With compelling titles like Blackguards and Chivalry on sale, now is the perfect time to quench your thirst for bloodlust! 

Some of the highlights for the 1000 - 1800 period are:

  

You got the highlights exactly right there Fox.

The next Head 2 Head Playfire Rewards is BlackGuards vs Citadels, so vote if you care here

 

The winning game usually gets quite a good amount of rewards and the loser gets a handful too.

 

They're both on sale right now. BlackGuards is $20 before coupon ($16 after) and Citadels is $9.99, a penny short of being couponable.

 

Theres only a day left on a bunch of Rewards including DooM 3 BFG, Killing Floor and Typing of teh Ded.

 

Ima get busy on Doom.

Looking forward to them Blackguards rewards, since I bough that Daedelic pack.

 

Hopefully we'll start to see some big batches of rewards over the next few days, to make up for the last few days.

Damnit, I don't have either this time. I've never heard of them before, they any good?

I'd feel better about the lack of good GMG deals if they were giving me free money to use on upcoming deals. Instead we get crap on Playfire. They blew their reward load on DS2 and I'm just too much of a CAG to buy that yet. :(

22.50 Here (for my favorite game series I bit.), woulda been 12.50 if I woulda got the gmgcashback stupid sleep.. >< Some on here got it for free..

I know. The rewards for Doom 3 are pretty easy compared to most of the ones for other games. It's what took me off the fence and made me wanna buy it.. until the website decided to explode at the worst time for me. X.x

 

Oh well, got my hands full between Castle of Illusion and Typing of the Dead anyways. I feel bad for the people who bought Awesomenauts/Killing Floor and are trying to get the rewards right now.

I can't do the last Awesomenauts reward, is really difficult (or I'm really bad at the game), but the other ones are easy. And I already had all the KF reward's achievements from before, so no $ for me there :(

Seems to be the case.
Every time awesomenauts is included, I'm shit out of luck because I already have them -.-

Anyways with the rewards this past week, I wasn't able to make any money. Therefore not preordering Dark Souls 2 for goodies :(

I bit on Blackguards, because it looked interesting to me (I'm a fan of turn-based SRPGs), and it appears to be winning the vote.

Looks like Sega is finally participating in this one.

 

Of course it figures they don't put any of the Renegade Ops DLC on sale, just the base game and the collection. :wall:

 

Anyways, I hope they include the Binary Domain DLC/Aliens stuff when the third part of the sale starts on Saturday.

 

Edit: Another crappy batch of rewards added today, by the way.

 

Am I the only one who didn't know Typing of the Dead Overkill came with the PC port of House of the Dead Overkill? No wonder it's so expensive normally...

 

Edit 2: If you're looking to buy Jagged Alliance stuff, the Collector's Bundle is part of a $4 bundle at BundleStars, with a bunch of other stuff, definitely better than the prices GMG is offering. -> http://www.bundlesta...kalypso-bundle/

No need to... unless you're some sort of dumbass who bought RenOps from Valve... everywhere else you gives you the DLC for free.

I think that was a promo that only extended to people who owned the game before a certain date.

Worked for years after.  I've never seen any indication/report that it no longer works, Negative Nancy.

 

But if ignorance makes you happy... you're a very lucky boy.

There were far too many Playfire Rewards that just ended today. It'd be better to space those out, but that would probably be expecting asking too much of them.

Yeah, I didn't get around to the Killing Floor or Tieping off teh Dedd ones. Now I'm only left with Portal 2, which is cool cos I was enjoying it when I had to stop to move onto other rewards, and Always Remember Me, which I really don't want to actually play.

Same, I missed out on Killing Floor, Awesomenauts, and Castle of Illusion. Just not enough time. Having 8 game rewards ending on one day is pretty stupid. Especially if having that many games for reward tracking overloads their system.

 

Everything from reward tracking to credit transferring seems to be damn slow still.
