    Such a shame... Thanks for the warning, I was considering making an account to play through it during the weekend.

    How do you get the game? I installed the client but see no sign of the game.

    Just search for it in the client and click the Buy button. It treats it as a normal purchase, just with a cost of 0.

    Be warned though, as far as I can tell there doesn't seem to be any way to delete you card details from them. You might be able to change it to incorrect information, but I'm not sure.

    Bioshock for your personal information and a DRM lock-in.
    Is it worth it?

    Even if I didn't have Bioshock elsewhere, it wouldn't be.

    But if you also give them money, it is?

    i'm sure they'll recoup their loses from giving bioshock away for free with all that valuable cred. card info they're getting. expect more emails soon.

    Good point, but it still feels a bit forced to me having to fork over my personal data and CC number. What if they get hacked? at least Steam lets me use paypal which adds one more layer.

    Is it worth it for you? It's not for me, I bought Bioshock with as little DRM as possible.

    I'm betting it's a case of their "off the shelf / outsource developed" checkout system not being designed with "free" in mind.

    Amazon along with Gamespot will have a 2h sale during their weekly Black Friday Show . This weeks deal will be Prototype 1 + Prototype 2 (including RADNET DLC) for under $9.99. Both games will be Steam redeemable, so, if anyone is interested, tune in. I don't think the page for the pack is up yet though.

    The deal will start in 11h 40min as of writing this.

    Things like this make me reconsider my life.

    The Prototype deal is great.

    Tempting, all the more so as I missed the Dark Souls sale on amazon. But ... that Gameholds site looks kinda dubious. There's absolutely no contact information to be found. Some folks commenting @ SavyGamer did a little research and ended up with some mailbox address located in Hong Kong. That said, people seem to have received their codes and confirmed them working, so ... I don't know. Think I'll pass that one.

    Do you mean this contact information? Located in the T&Cs?

    That's the one! :P

    Pardon me, I wasn't quite thorough with my search. But you gotta admit, they've done a good job hiding it well; nothing in the "About us", nor in the "Contact" section. Still looking suspicious ... Payment seems to go to one "Glory Profit International Limited" which, according to a quick google search, is also linked to a WoW gold farming site.

    When I order a pizza from my local Dominos, the payment on my card goes to somewhere in England.

    I wouldn't be surprised if they were linked to a gold selling site though. Really anyone who can manage to sell those games with that deep a discount already must be up to something. But not every gold selling site is out to steal your money. Fair play to you for being smart with your money and information though!

    And I didn't imply anything like that. As I've said, people seem to have received working codes. It just looked a bit suspicious to me and I had the urge to share my concerns with the world ... :P

    No minimums, so if you put a 10 game in the cart, it's free.

    Picked up Sleeping Dogs for 12.75 with IGN discount at Gamersgate. I have an absurd quantity of unplayed stuff in my backlog but I fancied losing myself in a GTA-type experience this weekend that I don't have to think about too much.

    Which if any of the DLCs are worth having? I might get Nightmare at North Point for 1.60 but the rest look very skippable.
