That's the GTA: vice city key (if you pre ordered early) I've tried it in steam it says I own the game already. It (gta V) has been under games under a blank menu since the start, with a VC activation key.

When it says "GTA V Tier 1 key" It's not vice city, and the emails with the keys came out 12 hours after they showed up under the menu. You're welcome by the way.

Really? The books use "Yeah" and "Gotcha?"
I have seen it in the fan translations of stuff that hasn't been officially released so yes. I have a feeling that there's some 'lost in translation' stuff. Not saying it's good, but I have seen it.

Also for those that preordered GTAV from GMG keys are out. No email, but they are showing up in the games page now.

That dialog is horrible.

The dialog is very similar to what you'd find in the books.

Tempting, but what about region lock? Anyone every buy from them?

I've bought a bunch of games from them, never had a problem. They list whether or not a game is region locked or not right on the sales page so you know what you're going to buy. They're also a legit retailer, and if I remember right one of the largest e-retailers in Brazil.

Any tips on where to get GTA cheapest?

Looks like GMG has it for $10 less than Steam, which is kind of surprising
GMG usually or nuuvem. I got mine through GMG back in January for 33% off with a code they owed me. Don't normally see it cheaper than 25-29% off.

You youngin's are a funny lot. I used to play on Genie back when it's competitors were Sierra's online network - TSN (which housed some really simple board games brought to digital, like Checkers and a rudimentary Red Baron online mode, which I never played because 2400 baud just didn't cut it even for simple-shaded polygons apparently...not to mention the $7.95 PER HOUR
=-Rigs-=

Well if we want to get into the olde stuff. The first modem I had was 1200 baud, it was the people who didn't know what a BBS was that used things like AOL, Compuserve and so on anyway. The rest of us were quite happy, and we got by without having to drop money on those things. Never mind that all those things were door programs on most BBS's, and of course we can't forget that those doors also had cross-BBS competitions. BRE, FRE, LORD, dozen or so other games. Though I met plenty of people though the boards and even hooked up with a girl in another city when I was a teen.

It was the people on the craptacular stuff that caused eternal september. Usenet was never the same again after that.

Ps.: Because I didn't want to spoil the entire game I did not finish Endless paths beyond level 10 and a few side quests. For the 2nd playthrough

Boss at the end of EP will repeatedly face roll you even at level 11. I'm pretty amazed at that.

Well it is a full-price game, $60 in the US. If they went by the exact exchange rate, it ought to be $75 CAD.

Either way, that's why you wait for a sale!

And if I walk into a store here, I'll find the games priced at exactly the same as in the US. $49.99-59.99 so what's the excuse now? There is none, just pure fucking people.

I am now about 10x more interested in buying it [on sale].
I was too until I saw the price on Steam. $70 here in Canada and I said NOPE.

Hahaha. Black Island Studios comprised of Larian, InXile and Obsidian.
Yeah I chuckled at that one. The CERN researches confirm existence of the force was also pretty good.

Hah, yeah I missed him too. I talked with him, but he didn't have any interest in joining my party. Maybe I chose the wrong option. I kept readying about people describing him as a super tank. I just ended up making a pair of fighters at the inn.

Stuff:

You only get him if you talk to him first, then goto the inn, rest, then go back to the tree. If the dialog doesn't fire when you walk away talk to him again and you'll get a chance to pick him up as a companion.

Oh come on, my first play through of Skyrim only clocked out at 300 hours. You'll get to the end of it soon enough.

A major bug in an Obsidian game? Whodathunkit?

Yeah it's not a major bug. A major bug would be "you can't get your stronghold" or "main quest fails to fire because xyz reason." This is a bug, and not a serious one at that. There's ways to avoid the bug entirely.

The irony of it is that by pushing Netflix to go after VPN users they're actually pushing people from using a paying service to piracy.
I only have one quote to give for the truth of this statement.

Are they? I've been ignoring them forever but lately I'm hearing kind of good or at least decent things so I could believe it.

EA has gotten the grand shit award twice I think, and there's no shortage of people in CS, graphic design, and art courses that haven't heard the "EA is the evil" stuff either. They know they have a PR and image problem. Like what a lot of people have said the last year, how screwed up is it that EA is better than Ubisoft.

Gaming media corrupt? But the SJW's are telling us we are all imagining it.. ;p
Hah no doubt. You catch the thread on /. about elen pao? Lot of swj backlash going on, looks like people in the tech sector are also having enough of this BS.

EA worker on EA website says working at EA is great?
To be fair, one of my friends works for Ubisoft, and through the grapevine EA isn't as bad as it was even 15 years ago especially when you look at their history with things like the vancouver site. It looks like they actually are trying to fix their image.
