      Ok - stupid question time:

      I've never done a deal with Green Man Gaming and I'm kind of interested in the Augmented Edition of Deus Ex (ok - so the goddamn viral video they put up a day or two ago won me over, gah) and I'm wondering the following:

      Since it comes with the art book, the 'making of', motion comic and the soundtrack - does that mean you get a Steam key for the game and they still send you a retail copy... or at least the rest of it as a retail copy?

        Nah you get digital versions of them, i.e. PDFs of the books and audio/video files for the other stuff. However, I'm not sure if you have to download them from Green Man Gaming or you unlock the Augmented Edition on Steam itself and get them from there.

      Uh... am I the only one having trouble with Green Man Gaming? Both my credit cards came up with a message that the bank did not authorize the order. WTF?

        had the same problem. You have to put your address info into your account page manually for it to work.

        They're in the UK so it's possibly you're actually being blocked from purchasing for security reasons. If you can't get it working, try Paypal or call up your CC customer service to authorize the purchase.

          Just a quick warning, Paypal won't work unless he's linked his paypal account to his bank, I learned that the hard way as well. Very annoying trying to buy a game from them so far. And I haven't gotten a confirmation email regarding my pre order. Ah well.

        Mine worked, but didn't get the steamworks key yet... assuming it gets emailed when it's released?

        Same here, seems like too much bother...

          LOL, so I tried a second card earlier. They just called me, I confirmed it, said to retry, now the FACEB-JULY3-20PEC code is expired. Nice.

      Does the Steamworks thing means that I can just activate it on Steam and forget about Green Man Gaming? I don't want to bother with another service...

        Yeah. They'll send you a key and you'll put it in Steam to download.

          Anyone ever buy anything off of getgames? Want to pick up frozen synapse but they're asking for a shipping address-is it not downloadable?

            The games are downloadable. I've bought Assassin's Creed 2 and Brotherhood from them and they both play with no problem.

      What's the deciding factor for ordering the list? Do you randomly pull the digital distribution name from a hat?

        There's a loose ordering.

        Steam goes first, because it's the site readers most care about, plain and simple.

        After that, I go vaguely in order of interesting deals, based on the highly subjective "Oooh I like that!" scale. I can usually eyeball a clear order to sort them by, but this week's is slightly murkier. Green Man's the best, GOG's the worst, then the rest is video games and went in whatever order I wrote them in.

        So no, usually it's relatively structured.
