    I think Direct2Play is a Russian company. If you do buy BL2, you'll get 2 version of the game (RU and EN). I bought both BL2 and Sleeping Dogs from them without a problem. I payed with PayPal too. They both activated on Steam with zero problems.

    They send you a picture of the CD key. The first game you buy you'll have to give them your phone number to either call or text. They will send you a verification number to enter before you can get access to the CD key. You only need the verification number for the first purchase. I didn't have to enter another one for BL2 when I bought it.

    To find the game key, you have to go back on to the site, go in to your account, and click on purchase details. It will take a few minutes for the key picture to show up fwiw.

    edit: I should add that I'm not so sure about doing any more business with them. I wasn't aware that they are probably out of Russia when I bought those two games. They have some good deals on other things, but I'd rather just wait for GMG, Steam, or someone else to put them on sale.

    Thanks everyone for your input!-

    I am kind of with you, that site seems kind of sketchy.
    Think I will wait and try to catch them on sale on another site.

    I have bought 3 games from greengaming, and all 3 activated through steam with no issues, there were no extra charges on my credit card, so IMO they are an okay company to buy from.

    Take on Helicopters for $10.19 on Steam's daily deal. I'm thinking about it, as I've wanted to try it out.

    Gamestop has the Dragon Age Bundle with Dragon Age Origins: Ultimate Edition and Dragon Age 2 (with Black Emporium DLC) available for $9.99 , you need to use gamestops app to download and install the games but overall for that price I would say its a fair trade off.

    On special for a whopping dollar less Tony Hawks Pro Skater HD.

    The game runs exactly the same as the original from PS1 but of course with better graphics and better frame rates.
    Only glitch I have come across in the new release is starting off with a manual after bailing on rare occasions.
    When using an a game pad, keyboard directions for game play still stay.

    A novelty title for those who were fans of the game released long ago.

    When possible, I update the twitter feed for promo codes. I've thought about something like having promo codes for certain stores show up in the 'info popup' you get when you click the (i) icon next to games.

    I guess the issue with this is, it requires me to always keep it up-to-date manually, which I'm often unable to do.

    Thanks for the feedback either way, always good to have ideas to think on.
    Crap Daddy, Darkleoco and manofthem say thanks.

    I understand it takes a lot of work and a lot of manually monitoring, so no worries. Even without it, your site is a great tool for us game-sale-shoppers! Thanks for it!
