    The payment tie might have been unique to the CIS countries then; I don't recall the Scribblenauts trick. If everyone could just go to e.g. the RU store and buy games without a VPN, there would never...

    I reinstalled it the other day and haven't run into any technical issues. I think I'm enjoying it thus far, but haven't gotten too deep into it. It does have a GW2-ish vibe to it, but I definitely...

    I was under the (possibly mistaken) impression that you always needed payment information that matched the country and/or a VPN to be able to buy from a different country's store. If so, I wonder how...

    In the US at least, both D3 and RoS have been $15-20 on sale, so their prices aren't too out of line with the norm. With Blizzard, I wouldn't take the risk given the minimal savings, but you'll...

    Aside from the other mentioned bugs, having the cursor escape the screen is incredibly annoying. I have to reset the option after nearly every battle or "cutscene". I also wish I could hotkey...

    I agree completely, I was just trying to distinguish between actual reseller issues and UX issues (of which G2A has plenty, though Amazon is certainly no saint in that regard either)

    I covered that earlier, but I don't consider Amazon and "Amazon's 3rd party marketplace sellers" as the same thing. In the context of digital goods sold by Amazon, the latter doesn't quite exist...

    If you want Chaos Theory, you'll be incredibly disappointed. It's mostly an action game with stealth bits and chest-high walls. I've heard Blacklist is better in this regard, but haven't played it.

    The insurance is optional, so it's not the same at all.



    I don't think it's nonsensical, unless you're proposing that the entire world must agree that a site is not shady for it to actually be...

    While I don't think I disagree with the point that you were trying to make (that it's a "new thing in gaming"), I do disagree that the "community" back then was the problem, as there was rarely a...

    I think you overstate the problem. There are certainly some sites that some people think are legit while others think they're shady. However, my point was that there are plenty of sites that everyone...

    I just use the sites that make it to /r/gamedeals since they don't allow the "shady" sites. Though some may get through in the short-term, comments and admin moderation should sort those out pretty...

    I wouldn't worry too much about cable length; extension cables are absurdly cheap.

    While this was a use-case for Steam, it's pretty clear from the press surrounding its early days that it was by no means the primary one (which was to be a content distribution platform for Valve and...

    I have a GOG key for The Dark Eye: Chains of Satinav. Shoot me a PM if you'd like it. If I get multiple PMs, I'll just raffle it off between them.

    You could also try for a used/refurb/really-good-holiday-deal U271x where x < 5. In two years, I'd expect an uptick in GSYNC-esque technology and 144Hz monitors (maybe even in non-TN varieties), but...

    I wouldn't say "just" since it was introduced almost a month ago, but it really is great for some videos (gameplay videos among them).

    Right now it looks like the delta between Steambucks and cash price is ~$0.50-$0.75/key. It's also not that risky if you purchase in relatively small quantities and deal with people who have some...

    CS:GO is nowhere near flawless, nor does it fix (m)any of 1.6's flaws. It did however iterate on some of the flaws fixed by the late 2007(?) update in CS:S. It also regressed significantly in other...
