How do the digital downloads work on there site? I'd like to get the FFXIII series on PC, but they don't say they are Steam keys (which I would prefer).

Any body have to return something before and know know if returns are a hassle? I'm thinking of getting RotTR collector's edition, but I want to return it in case the packaging is beat up.

You missed IV which is one of the best period and they did an outstanding job remaking it when they ported it to DS.

Already own it, lol. Don't worry. Any FF not listed is an FF I already have; this sale pretty much completed my collection.

 

I also already have versions of FFI, III, IX, and X|X2, but they're mostly digital so I figured this would be a great time to grab some physical copies for the collection. Can't beat $7.50 for (what i'm assuming is) a brand new PS1 game, or $10 for the Vita X|X2.

I just got FFXI's digital version and it was non-Steam, if that helps. They simply linked me to a gigantic 6gig .zip file containing all the installers and gave me a serial key.

Isn't that the mmo? I don't know if that's even on steam altogether.

need one more item to get free shipping.  A2 and Crisis Core oos atm otherwise I would have gotten those 2 as well.

 

EDIT: one CAG posted that Chrono Trigger sold out.  It is still available as of this post (already in my cart).  Maybe A2 and Crisis Core will return?  I guess I will wait to order until I get home.

I'm not sure if it's a "Steam" game, but they at least sell it.

Oh ok. Maybe it's like the ubi games that use uplay. They sell it but it will launch with whatever other client is used.

For those complaining about shipping consider this:

 

Nier+CT+TWEW= about 43

 

if you split the fees the games are about 14 a piece.

 

Nier (PS3): lowest is about 28+tax at the moment

CT: lowest is 25-29 and has a chance of fake cart

TWEWY: pretty much the same as Chrono Trigger

Yeah if you are buying 1 item.. shipping kills it. 

Even with the shipping for my order, it was still cheaper than buying elsewhere. 

 

And hey, they sent me a Lanyard!

There's a lot of MMOs like that which are on Steam but the only way to get them through Steam is to buy them directly through Steam and everything else gets you an unbound thing.

I would if I didn't already have everything I wanted from them, and I'm not going to buy duplicates of something just because it's so cheap.  I'd rather leave them for someone who doesn't have it yet. 

 

Anyway, charging $8 to ship one tiny Vita game in a bubble mailer is beyond ridiculous.

I emailed them asking to modify my order and add chronological trigger for sale price so I don't have to render for new shipping fees.

I couldn't find chrono trigger on the site for days. It shows name in title in search but doesn't come up unless I go to physical media category and go in abc order from there.

Here's hoping they can modify it. I traded in my copy to Amazon like 4 years ago for $8 keeping the poster.

Don't really regret it.

Ha! $7.99 for shipping on a $9.99 game? Might as well buy it at retail price, what a joke.

Does anyone know when this ends?  I might be able to scrape up $100 for the free shipping with some more time.

Here's a dumb story: I wanted to cancel my order from the SE store so I can make the order later.  I filed in the form, but they either ignored it or I was too late to change anything (I was only an hour behind), because they sent me a shipping notice a day later.

 

And yet here's the kicker.  I checked back at the SE store, and I noticed that the Chrono Trigger DS version is no longer listed, instead of being waitlisted like the others.  Seems like they no longer have any copies of the game.  My order, by the way, contains the Chrono Trigger DS version as one of the items (the others being TWEWY and FFT:WotL, both of which are now waitlisted; would love to get Crisis Core, but I didn't pull the trigger fast enough).  Had I succeed in cancelling my order, I would never get a chance to re-order Chrono Trigger DS. 

 

I guess I should thank the PepitaStore for ignoring my request.

As others pointed out, *some* of the games are Steam keys, which I think they are all marked. Some were only released on Steam years later, while others always were on Steam. If they were always on Steam.. odds are you'll get a Steam Key. Added later.. probably not.

 

IMO they should do a better job telling the potential customer HOW the digital game will be delivered. (Steam key, direct Download from SE etc)

Pretty sure the 21st.

Got my package in today :). Super happy with the packaging job plus it only took 5 days to get here which is a heck of a lot faster then I was expecting it given some of the talk around here.

Gotta sympathize with him.  My package came today in the same amount of days, it was packaged well, and my games (+ lanyard) are in pristine condition.  They haven't gone cheap with Super Saver shipping option.

Yeah I was surprised I was expecting either a bubble mailer or oversized box given my experience with most other retailers but these guys actually got a box which fit perfectly and there was plenty of air cushions in there to keep the stuff from rattling around. Really gotta give them a thumbs up for it best packaging job I've seen in a long time.

I ordered an order, then saw the $100 free shipping that for some reason was 99 cents so reordered and sent request to cancel.  Unfortunately looks like they didn't get to it in time 4 days later got notified of shipment.  Anyone know if I can just refuse the package for refund?  Sent another support ticket asking but they haven't answered my first one so not holding my breath for an answer.

 

Edit: Also, whats up with he rewards points?  Seems they were supposed to add the rewards since 2015, but can't find anything else on it?

Lol my order said "Shipped" on their website since yesterday.

 

Just got a shipping email from them and the tracking number says all they did so far was create a packing label on 2/17 (TODAY)

 

Really wish they would either go out of business  (may be a little harse) or learn to be more CS based; honestly...paying $8 for shipping should get you two day shipping not 5-8 (more like 10) days; obviously they are pocketing alot of the shipping cost.

It's Square.  Don't EVER expect to cancel an order after you placed it.

Read the return process, it doesn't sound likely they'll accept a flat out refusal of a package.  https://store.na.squ...v#return_policy
