    One would think so. But IIRC, there was at least one DD service which required you to install the client just to get the activation key, hence the question.

    Well, crap.
    Indeed, too bad.

    Gamestop requires you to install their client just to get the Steam code. In Gamefly I could copy the code out of the web interface, without having to install the app.

    IMHO, no, the two games are very different. I love bloodlines, but gave up about 2 hours into redemption; it's really more of a hack&slash with fairly poor battle mechanics, lack of proper party control, and too much reliance on luck. Can't comment on story as I didn't get too far into it.

    Oops, you're right, it was Gamestop/ImpulseDriven that forced me to install their client to get the Steam code. GMG is friendly in this regard.

    I've been really impressed with Greenmangaming in many respects - regularly the cheapest place for pre-release Steam games due to their frequent voucher codes, along with cash back for old games they give you for free, plus they have always got me Steam keys in time for pre-loading where it's supported. Usually one of the first places I check for Steam games.

    All of which makes me a little surprised that I have never seen their deals in the Bargain Bucket.

    They instantly replied to my support ticket and solved the issue on a Saturday night, it was almost midnight in the UK.

    Same here. I really wanted to like Redemption because of the setting, but I found the gameplay obnoxious/boring enough that I gave up a few hours in. Also, I remember character/upgrade customization being somewhat opaque. An "recommended build" option would have been welcome.

    Amazon digital deals:

    Darksiders 2 - $18.75
    Sleeping Dags - $22.49

    Use coupon code OCTOFUN1 to get that price. One use per account, both games are Steamworks.

    Battlefield 3 for $7.50? That's a good deal, isn't it? I'm guessing it'll require Origin, though...

    personally i wouldn't spend a cent on bf3 (it was gifted on release to me), but it's a great price if you're the slightest bit interested.

    GMG offers $10 credit to US folks who buy XCOM (available after launch).
    They also started distributing the US keys for the game.

    Also remember that you can review games for store credit - 0.25 per review, or 1.00 if you're the first. You don't have to own the title to review it.

    And finally, they have a shitload of games on sale. Has anyone paid attention to the trade-in amounts over time? I'm sure you can buy some of these and either get your money back later or sell them back for a (minor but still counts) profit.
