US only? Nuts.

Can someone buy me a Steam key for it? I'll pay $12 via PayPal for it or I can trade with a Steam key for Total War: Shogun 2.

Please?

Just give them a random US billing address for your card, it worked for me. Wrigley Field's not a bad reference!

@MikkaQ:

Could that in anyway be considered credit card fraud? Sounds fishy to me.

Ehh... maybe? I mean... I payed with a debit card, so I don't know if the rules are different, those might not have actual billing addresses since it just directly takes the money out of my account. Amazon did take the money, I can tell you that.

I did it myself a couple of times, no problems so far. I guess that as long as Amazon gets paid, there will be no issues. You can totally put whatever you want as your address even if you're buying from inside the US. It's not like they go around checking that stuff.

Damn you for pointing this out and making me spend money.

Thanks for pointing this out and giving me quality time with Big Bo.

Hm, it didn't look half bad in TB's WTF Is. A game I wouldn't really -want- to play, but a game I'd lose a few hours in on a rainy day.

For $10? I'm in.

And of course, it's going to go on sale during some future Steam sale, I'll be like "Huh, Binary Domain? This looks interesting."

"You already own a copy of this game."

"I do? Well, when the hell did I buy this?"

Is the PC version any good? This is a pretty tempting deal...

GET IT.

I'll second this. I'm tempted, but the demo on Steam was very off-putting for me. All of the UI elements used 360 controller imagery. I do have a 360 wireless dongle plugged in, so that may have been the cause of this, but my controller was turned off at the time. And I couldn't find a way to use the keyboard to set my options and start the demo. I seriously couldn't figure out which keyboard button mapped to "Back."

I use that address to order 4 fried chickens and coke every week.

Thanks for the heads up! Now I can finally personally experience the year of the BO

Do they send a Steam code to your e-mail when you've bought it or something?

#17 Posted by EquitasInvictus (2029 posts) -

@Cloudenvy: If you go to "Your Games and Software Library" after you purchase it, it'll be listed there with a product code you can then paste on Steam to redeem.

@EquitasInvictus: Great! thanks for the help.

Thanks for the tip Kenobi. For $10 I can't really say no.

Did they ever patch the horrid mouse acceleration? If no, stay away if mouse is your only option.

#21 Posted by DonutFever (3551 posts) -

I loved the Steam demo. 
 
How long will this sale be on, and is there a possibility of it coming to Amazon.ca? 
 
I guess I should just wait until the Steam Summer Sale (S3?).

#22 Edited by ajamafalous (11992 posts) -

Can somebody answer the PC port questions? I'm super tempted, but not if there are problems with UI/mouse acceleration. 
 
EDIT: Well, looking at the Steam forums, apparently this game is mad busted. I'd say steer clear.
