      Looks like it's time for me to get Batman:AC on PC. Does this activate on Origin?

          I've never bought anything digitally from Gamefly. Wondered if I just get a key I can activate in steam/origin/gfwl...or if I have to use their client.

      how do gamefly digital purchases work?

        Not particularly well. You automatically create a "buyer" account when you buy a game through their client, but then they force you to keep a payment option on file and they also try really hard to get you to subscribe to their service by withholding information about how buyer accounts work. I wish I had waited for these games to go on sale on Steam.

            Think I'm going to do the same. It's been on sale for cheap on Origin and now Gamefly....Steam should be next.

      gamefly is on my shitlist for the way they handled the transition after the direct2drive takeover. i would rather buy at steam or gog.com. the only way i'd ever consider them again is if they supplied a key for another service like steam/origin/gog.com

        Hey we agree! The fact that NONE of the games I purchased on d2d are available on gamefly for me to download means gamefly can go fuck themselves

          Well, you were warned to make a backup of your games.

          that sucks, i thankfully i didnt have many games there but valcan mentioned that he lost shitloads of games in that process.

          what is hilarious is that the games are available for download for a new guy but not for you apparently.
          the only saving grace is that they won't allow you to rebuy the game as its listed as already owned.

        They're pretty good at renting games.

          Also selling used games for cheap. None of this Gamestop BS.

        Yeah I have no plans on buying any games from gamefly since the d2d takeover. Luckily I backed up everything I had on d2d because half of my games aren't downloadable anymore because they're too "old."

        Also: fuck having another client. I don't need another client running on my PC.
