well i just bought prey from them and it seems good enough. register, add to cart... then they send you an email confirmation link.. click on that and you can choose your payment method (i chose paypal) and pay like normal. the game shows up in your account instantly (alongwith the cd key which i registered on steam with no problems). one can download the client from them anytime as well.

edit: can you add games that are also sold on steam without a problem if you buy just a cd key from gamersgate?

like if you buy Farcry 2 cd key from gamersgate, would you get patches/updates through steam and so on?
and be able to add Farcry 2 fortune pack from steam as well?
or because you didn't buy Farcry 2 from steam, you can't add the fortune pack?

nope. only games on this list will allow adding a retail key -

https://support.steampowered.com/kb_...7480-wusf-3601

once the key is added though it will function exactly like a game purchased on steam.

yep i never understood it either but i do know that it's one of the most addictive franchises ever. my room mate in college used to play the game non stop and my friends actually used to have fights over it . and i used to think they were crazy for being so hooked on a game where you just watch dots 'playing' football. in any case, i'm passing on the deal this week as well and getting empire total war instead

zeno clash 50% off on pre-order for this weekend at d2d. the price seems good but pre-ordering a completely unknown game just because it's cheap sounds iffy

http://www.direct2drive.com/481/7949...Clash-Download

they key you get will have to be activated on steam.

Bahaha I just bought it. I'll take the gamble for 10 bucks The game looks interesting and I'm a source engine game whore. (Also it will be tied to steam instead of having to use d2d)

Also, It makes up for the disappointing weekend deal from steam.

yea the price is tempting but it bugs me that almost nothing is known about the game. i'm thinking (hoping) that since they've already had 2 50% off deals in the pre-order period, there might be something similar after the release as well.

Yeah there's only been like 2 videos released I think? Not a lot of stuff to judge it on. I think someone from valve said it was cool, lol. I don't like being a guinea pig but I'm having a lot more faith in indie games these days. They have been releasing much batter products as of late (in my opinion) than much of the big name stuff. Paying 10 bucks for a **** game is better than 50 any day also

if this game turns out to be good then i'm going to end up kicking myself i suppose

you're right about the indie v/s big name games though. i asked a friend to buy me a copy of empire total war (because this weekend's deals all sucked) and i'm sitting here preparing myself for all sorts of bugs and problems in the game when i get the discs from him. that's hardly a good mindset to be in about a game you just purchased right? although luckily the local price of e:tw is ~16$ so it's not that much of a difference in terms of price.

Universe at war is only £0.98p including postage at www.game.com so certainly worth it at that price.

I think $27 is the normal price for Left 4 dead now, I wish there would be a weekend deal on steam for $9.99
