After the recent success we had picking up the Just Cause 2 Gift Pack, I decided to start a Steam Group dedicated to things like this. For Giant Bomb users only!

Edit: Group is now public. Feel free to trade and get pools going for group deals, just make sure you know who it is you're sending games and/or money to!

I'm always happy to middle any group buys by holding PayPal funds and then distributing games, even if I'm not interested in whatever is being purchased at the time. Just send me a PM here on the forums and we can work it out.

beej, and yeah I'm in. If by in I mean that I'm in for games that I'm actually interested in, I'm assuming this isn't a commitment to be down for any and all packs that get suggested.

#7 Posted by Brunchies (2501 posts) -

I have a question, do we all just donate to one paypal account that buys the game bulk or do we just buy them ourselves and give the games to other community members? 

#8 Posted by LordAndrew (14596 posts) -

LordAndrew, I think? I'm never sure which name I'm supposed to give when people ask. Try MuffledSword if that doesn't work, and let me know which name I should give people in the future.

 Only for the games you're interested in. Hopefully we get enough members that there will be enough people interested in the packs that you want, so you'll always be able to get them.

The way we worked the last one was everyone just PayPal'd me, then I bought the pack and distributed the games. For future purchases we can do it however it makes sense based on who wants in on the buy.

#18 Posted by Animasta (14848 posts) -

XSASweet. I have to wait until the post-christmas sale though :(

#19 Posted by Mike (16261 posts) -

Group is now public - make sure you do your due diligence on who exactly it is you're dealing with before committing to any deals!

All over it like a rash.

#23 Posted by Pinworm45 (4069 posts) -

Bah, I'd totally be all over this but my paypal account was compromised this week and so my comfort level in using it is not very high.

#24 Posted by HaroldoNVU (623 posts) -

I'm in.

#26 Posted by TermlessHalo (103 posts) -

I don't know. Can anyone really trust people to buy bulks?

#27 Posted by Mike (16261 posts) -
@termlesshalo: We just did it today...but hey, if you have any second thoughts, then don't get involved. No worries.

#29 Posted by ESREVER (2853 posts) -

This sounds like a rad idea. I joined. 
Hopefully it goes smoothly.

#30 Posted by kalmis (1744 posts) -

Great idea MB.  

#31 Posted by theherbivorousbig (61 posts) -

Rad. I'd definitely be down for doing more of these.

#32 Posted by Geno (6768 posts) -

I was waiting for GB to come up with a group like this, great thread.  

#33 Posted by Jack268 (3370 posts) -

Joining, but doubt I'll be able to contribute in a while. The fucking Cataclysm+those deals are holding my funds in a steel vice. I'm almost considering not going collectors edition on Cataclysm to be able to afford more Steam games.

#34 Posted by sageharpuia (3 posts) -

Hm.. I'll join on this. 

#35 Posted by IcySandman (481 posts) -

I'm in, but I think all the people who join ought to tell their Steam names so everyone knows who's who... 

#36 Edited by ESREVER (2853 posts) -

If it wasn't obvious, I'm [>A<]ESREVER on Steam. Occasionally my name may change to [>A<]Mace, cause people have no problems pronouncing it. 
Currently, the group deal in question is Lead & Gold. There are six users who are currently interested in pooling together to buy it. 
Who all is interested in making the deal? Meaning, having people PayPal you their share so you can buy it and distribute it to everyone.

#37 Posted by kalmis (1744 posts) -

My Steam ID is: Kalmis. 
I'am interested in the Lead & Gold deal. Whoever does the purchase I will PayPal the money first thing tomorrow morning UK time. 

#38 Posted by Rolyatkcinmai (2763 posts) -

I'm in for the group buy of L&G and have Paypal. Let me know. Steam ID: CharlesWorthington (compLy roLy)

#39 Posted by ESREVER (2853 posts) -

Four users are needed to completed this group deal. Also, a volunteer to buy it and distribute it.

#40 Posted by ZombiePie (6487 posts) -

Awesome idea. I don't have any games that I want but I'll join anyways. I'm Bluevooom on Steam if you wanted to know.

#41 Posted by Rolyatkcinmai (2763 posts) -

I will be the one to purchase everything if we can get four more people in the next 13 hours.

#42 Edited by nintendoeats (6155 posts) -
@Rolyatkcinmai: I'm in.
EDIT: Steam Name "Umu"
#43 Posted by ch13696 (4760 posts) -
@Rolyatkcinmai: I'll definitely jump in for Lead & Gold, but I'll have to be the one to distribute the deal. Because I don't have checks to add my bank account to PayPal, but I can purchase the pack with my debit card.
#44 Posted by Rolyatkcinmai (2763 posts) -
@ch13696: Fine with me.
#45 Edited by ch13696 (4760 posts) -
@Rolyatkcinmai: Ok sweet. So is there a list of people that want in on this? I'll be sending friend requests. And what's a good price for each game. $2? 
Oh and my PayPal is
#46 Edited by ESREVER (2853 posts) -

Ugh, there's gotta be THREE more people who are willing to PayPal $2 for this game. I'm getting tired of waiting... and sleepy.  
Can I just PayPal you $2 now?

#47 Posted by Rolyatkcinmai (2763 posts) -

ESREVER had the count of people. Not sure who is in and who isn't. Only ones I know are; 
Anyone else that is in for L&G please post below. Send your $2 to 
I will try to get this more organized for next time.

#48 Posted by nintendoeats (6155 posts) -

Yes, some kind of process would be awesome.

#49 Posted by LordAndrew (14596 posts) -

Am I still counted as being in on this? Because I'm so in.

#50 Edited by ESREVER (2853 posts) -
@LordAndrew: Yes, I skipped over your post a couple of times on the Steam group. I was kicking myself trying to figure out who the 6th was xD
