Dishonored at Greenman Gaming, $45

#1 Edited by Silver-Streak (1368 posts) -

No idea if this has been posted yet, but didn't see anything in the Dishonored forums.

  • http://www.greenmangaming.com/s/us/en/pc/games/action/dishonored-na/
  • GMG25-EVFWS-4Z4ZN for 25% off any digital download.
  • $45, no taxes.

Notes:

  • No pre-order bonuses
  • No pre-loading (Sometimes they get preloading the day before, but it's unknown).
  • No idea if the game is good or not yet. Embargo until 11pm CST tomorrow.
  • Code ends 5am CST Monday.

GB's quicklook goes up at 11pm tomorrow. So here's hoping it's good.

Edit: Also, it's a Steamworks game, so even though you're not buying it through steam, you will still activate your key with steam.

I want this game real bad, and this sounds like a good deal, but I might hold back for a month or a little more. I keep seeing PC games from a month or two ago going on sale for half-off.

You sure there isn't any pre-order bonuses? Thought I saw somewhere on the site that you still get the Steam bonuses if you pre-order from them...oh well, for 45 bucks it's worth taking a risk I guess.

@Ramboknife: Nope. not sure at all. But in the past I've never gotten preorder bonuses when buying from GMG.

Thanks for the heads-up. I'm gonna wait until the QL, though.

The pre-order bonuses were just TF2 stuff, no special items or dlc for the game.

I got just about every pre order bonus out there with Darksiders 2 on GMG

@amir90: Good to know. I guess it's random then, like their pre-load stuff. (X-com was preload enabled, BL2 was not.)

At least I'll have time to see the quick look and some early reviews. I've ignored every piece of marketing for this game besides the announcement obviously so I have no idea what to expect. Not sure if it will be great or shit.

Edit: Nevermind, I thought that said 5 p.m, not a.m....fuck.

It's a good deal, but not sure that I'm completely sold on the game yet. Anyway, I'm already putting my money on XCOM.

Also, the Steam page lists that you get Arx Fatalis for preordering.

You save $15 buying it through GMG, and Arx Fatalis is 5 bucks on steam if you really want it. So you still win.

@Eujin: Weird. I know I was able to preload Borderlands 2 when I ordered from GMG. Got the DLC too.

@Butano: Hmm.. I don't know then. It may have been due to how early I ordered it. But I cancelled my preorder a few days before launch anyway as I got a free copy with my new video card. Maybe I missed the cut over to when they could do preloading on it. They Just announced preloading on X-COM yesterday, and keys are still being sent out.

Dishonored, so far, is confirmed for only sending keys out on launch day:

Also, here's their general stance on preorders:

http://forums.greenmangaming.com/topic/2928/

"Do I get pre-purchase bonus x?

You will receive everything that was listed on the product page at the time of your purchase. For example, if you pre-purchase Borderlands 2 and it says you get the Premiere Club, well then you get the Premiere Club!

As it comes up frequently, we do not get access to something which is a 'Steam Exclusive' , for example TF2 hats. They are just that. An exclusive."

Currently, none of the bonuses for Dishonored are listed.

Welp, Based off the review and quicklook, I just used the deal.

Stupid mobile site, sorry. I was saying I was able to preload BL2 through GMG but not with Sleeping Dogs, my only other purchase from them.

Seems like a crapshoot with them.

Well, Double awesome. Even though they were expecting to not have keys available until launch(Stated so upon checking out), I got an email today with my key anyway. Preloading now.

They also extended the sale to 10/12/12. So anyone who hasn't gotten in on it yet can still get in on $45 Dishonored.
