So should I preorder this on Steam ($30) or Green Man Gaming ($24)? Does Green Man Gaming have a good sale record with preordered games? Do the developers get less $$ if I buy through GMG? Thoughts?
GMG means no refunds.
Sometimes they also send you the key late. This isnt the case with DD where you get the key instantly.
Also $24 is too much.
Use the following 25% off code instead of the regular 20%.
I got a few games from GMG and I got seriously fucked, they gave me a used key 3 days AFTER release I had to open a ticket that took another day to respond and finally got my new game about a week after release
Needless to say I don't plan on buying from them anymore, GMG is shady as fuck
Nigga, I already got my key days ago. Same day I pre-ordered it. All the pre-order content as promised.
Buying directly through Steam is for suckers who don't know any better. They can afford to charge more on Steam 'cause it's most people's first and last stop for buying shit.
Oh, that sucks
I personally never experienced anything like that nor have I heard anyone complain before
It costs less for them to maintain their business, that's how sales work
The base/initial price of a game is not what the Steam or whatever reseller provides you with, it includes the profit they need to gain from it as well as the price for the service they provide
I don't know the exact numbers, but imagine that a single key costs like $15 or so, they then include their service fee of $5 and the profit they gain from reselling it, which is the rest of the price (this is all very abstract and should not be taken as proof of anything specific)
Other costs might also come into this
>he thinks the industry and mainstream isn't aware of keysites
The real reason you shouldn't use some russian shithole of a site is that they sell your credit card info around.
the reason I think it will ruin pc gaming if a significant group of people start doing it is because the devs won't make enough money. it won't be profitable to port something like dd to pc because everyone will buy cheap/stolen keys.
and good thing I use paypal for all online purchases then.
>There are people who are going to pirate this, then come to /v/ to complain about how bad it is
>PCfats who don't know that the online features are half the fun
>Half the fun
Not really. Maybe 1/6 of the fun?
Unless you like to waifufag your pawn up but that's still divorced from online gameplay.
>Implying the real gameplay of DD is not dressing your pawn up like a tart and sending her to get thrown into the sea by other players
The game is normally $30 but has a 20% off coupon which would take $6 off. 25% of 30 is 7.5 so they're rounding down which would remove $7. It's alright if you didn't get it I was the math prodigy in highschool.
>the year this game came out
It's got like three years worth of reviews. It's a good game, the world knows that by now. Pre-ordering is a risk, but this is a port of a popular game and Capcom is pretty decent at porting. Netcode and continued patching, not so much, but it'll most likely be a far better port than Dark Souls was. But the bonus for pre-ordering is pretty great and it's a ~$24 purchase, not a $40+ one.
That's not really gameplay though since you can't witness it.
Capcom cleaned up their act. They've been extremely friendly lately
>MUH MEGA MAN
They're clearly trying to relaunch the brand with the not so secret deals they've been making lately. Be patient, unless you want Mega Man to get a Sonic treatment where they just rush out a shit game and call it a day.
