I'm surprised Total Biscuit already beat a campaign. Is it really short or something? I heard one podcaster say 10-13 hours. I assume it is shorter because there is a countdown mechanic for the campaign.
In his video he mentioned he beat the preview build, he also mentioned he put 60-70 hours into it.
He played it on normal difficulty if I remember correctly.
Watch the video I linked below.

Can't wait to get home and play this.
I got it from GMG with their 25% off coupon a few days ago. Worked out to be $65CDN
After watching the Total Biscuit video on this game, I was sold.

XCOM2 Deluxe Deluxe code DEALZO-NSAVES-23XCOM seems to still be good for 23% off at GMG. It brings the price down to $57.75 US. However the code doesn't work for the regular edition. Does anyone have a regular edition discount that's still active?
That code doesn't seem to work anymore
Kinguin has it for lower but I'd much rather go with GMG

I've tried this at the last free weekend deal and I did not find it entertaining for some reason.
It might be a good game but not my cup of tea.
With XCOM2 out this week, I think I have my free time pre booked anyways

I didn't think they've had to go this far, but it is very cool for them to do this. So hopefully people will stop accusing them of grey market keys.

so up until this year you didnt like buying from steam because they never offed you a refund....now i am confused GMG has always refunded
I don't think GMG refund games ones you've redeemed the key and played the game under your account.Steam refund is different.
Games bought on Steam can be refunded after you've played it.

as far as I'm concerned, they've earned my trust and my tolerance if something does happen to fuck up.
Same here, I really like GMG, and their customer service is pretty awesome too.
They are my number 1 preferred place to buy games from.
Not sure what's up with idiot people constantly throw mud at these guys and label them as grey market key sellers.
This isn't the first time GMG has to defend themselves against allegations like that.
Same shit happened when The Witcher 3 was released.

Only one guy at my work got Black Ops 3 (every other nerd got Fallout 4.)

When I asked him how it was, he said it was absolutely terrible. They offered a free download of Black Ops 1, so he downloaded that, and the mp was filled to the brim with people, whether all from similar disgusted BO3 buyers, who can say.

I don't like it too much either.
I think Advanced Warfare is a much better and more fun game but everyone hated that for some reason.

AW is fun, the MM is better and there is PVE when PVP is on a crazy day but it just doesn't have the same pull that WoT gave me. I do prefer the gameplay of AW but something is missing and I cant put my finger on it.
That mirrors my experience.

My only point was born from the often excited comments of "hey look with this coupon its 20% off on GMG". My point was that that's nothing special because it may be a 20% coupon, but it's 20% off 60 bucks. There's dozens of sites out there where the game is just around 48 dollars/euros without that marketing trick. See the link I posted earlier. So, 20% off on 60 bucks with a coupon just a marketing mindfuck, like 14,99 instead of just 15,00.

That was all. That was it. But it was blown up.
Ok got ya

You just wait. The GMG expired coupon will either be replaced by a new one in a second, OR they'll just ditch the coupon for a short while and the game will simply be 20% off as it is at right about every other site (20% off if you compare it with the 60 dollar pricetag).

Lets wait and see who's right, shall we?
Quinn
I am trying to understand what your point is here.
The standard prices of games is $60 US.
What's that got to do with the coupon or sale prices on GMG.
You seem to confuse standard regular prices of games with sale prices offered by a 3rd party website.

It's kind of like saying well from now on I will take the Mexican or Russian game prices as standard because for me that is a fair price and every other place is just over price everything so they can mind fuck people into thinking they are buying something on sale with a coupon.

In North America the standard regular price of games is $60US and it's regional equivalent based on currency exchange rate. This is not up to debate.

"lets make it 20% or so more expensive while give it a 20% discount".
Well that is the thing, GMG doesn't make the game price 20% higher to sell you the game with the coupon at the standard price.
Compare Steam or Origin prices to GMG prices before the coupon and you'll see.
Fallout 4 costs $60 on Steam and on GMG as well. The difference is GMG give you a coupon for 20% off, Steam doesn't.

US dollars I'm talking about. The default price is 50 dollars max. Now there's a 20% discount and suddenly they pretend like the default price is 60 dollars. I never see 60 dollars as a default price. That's console numbers, not PC.

I am guessing you aren't buying too many AAA games at launch. The $60 USD has been standard for a few years now. Activision and EA games are famous for that, but UBI titles are also $60 or if you live in Canada than $80
Basically same as console game prices.
Usually PC exclusive games are $50 or less, but if you look at any new release games like CoD, Battlefield, Fallout, Anno, etc they are all $60USD

Just to be clear I am taking Steam and Origin pricing as standard.

I've been playing this all day today and loving the game. I get much more into it than I ever could into 2070.
The combat sucks but combat always sucked in 2070 as well.
Glad I got the game from GMG.

Anyone interested in this GMG has it on sale for $34
It is the Uplay version not Steam.
The Steam version also uses Uplay, so no way around that.
