    one i usually buy from is g2play.net. have been using it for last couple of years and its fine. hilariously its design is exactly the same as fast2play, which i havent tried
    not sure what you mean by legit, its not authorized seller, they just resell keys from legitimately bought physical copies from cheaper regions usually. but keys themselves work just fine. besides stuff like steams sales, theres never a reason to buy from "official" full price retailers.
    keep in mind that for preorder for this stuff you usually receive the key at the day of release.

    They take Paypal so it'll be easy enough to get a refund if they aren't kosher.

    Nevermind, the price is actually higher now, more like 28 EUR (which seems the lowest price around, including Nuuvem). Ohwell, I think I'll wait.
    What sorta bothers me is that these sites are a bit of a grey area; I actually bought DS1 from one of them, had no problems, but didn't know the origin of the keys.

    I need to see progress. I can't keep playing the same looking games for 5 years, or I'd be playing on consoles.

    If you have pre-ordered the game you should now be able to pre-load it and non-Steam sellers should have your key (I got mine from GMG). It's a 8.2GB download.

    I just bought from nuuvem and it came to 23.60 through paypal, key came instantly and it's pre-loading now without any need for vpn shenanigans, if anyone's interested.

    Yey!
    i think i am quite OCD about this. I never stopped in my first playthrough until i had everything without guides, really exploring every nook and cranny and checking everything twice lol.
    Can't wait for the second one. My copy should arrive on 25, i can only hope.

    I can't wait for the salty tears of rage. I have suffered. And the only way I can deal with that is to see others suffer in the same way. So bring on the Action Reports, once it is out. They're needed for therapeutical reasons. Also Schadenfreude.

    Only another 3 or so days! Do we know what time it will unlock on Steam yet on Friday? My key hasn't arrived yet, starting to get a little worried as it was from a site I've not used before.

    it states unlock countdown right there on steamstore page.
    also most of those key reseller sites state quite explicitly that you will get your keys at the day of release, thats how preorder goes with reseller sites usually. "authorized" sellers like gmg and nuuvem already sent out their keys.

    Yeah my bad - 2 days and 10 hours. I've just been told I should be getting a key anyway, so I'm now in the process of trying to refund my unprocessed pre-order which will probably be a no go!

    I'm hoping this will run smoothly on my medium-range gaming laptop which is a few years old now but I have my doubts. I'd rather play it smoothly or not at all. I refuse to buy a desktop because they look unsightly so I may have to postpone this one until I have the loose cash to afford a new gaming laptop. Sad emoticon.

    Check out the link to the PCG article in hideinlight's post above. It's written by the guy who made DSfix and gives a pretty good insight at how the game runs on various systems as well as a good overview of the options available. If you were able to run Dark Souls, I'd imagine you can run DS2 as well.
