I want to buy the 19 game THQ pack, but I'm in the UK. Help!?

#1 Posted by Fattony12000 (6961 posts) -

As above.

I have been able to use my UK debit card to buy video game downloads from Amazon.com in the past, I assume they've tightened up their sick tech since last time and they will no longer allow my card to be processed through their system. Do any duders round these rough 'n' tough parts know of a way around this 'issue', maybe even scraping as low as to buy it for me, whereupon I will then hit them back with PayPal or something?

As it stands, I do only need about half of the games on this list (I had planned to gift those extra copies to peeps on here), maybe we could share the tab? I don't know! I JUST WANT TO PLAY MORE GAMES!?

Internet.

If you can't or won't help me, then you may as well check out the pack for yourself! Enjoy!

I think I could help you/share the tab. What games from the bunch are you interested in?

I'm in the UK too, and I just bought it to test out. It worked no problem for me, so I suspect it's your debit card provider tightening up things on their end. You definitely had a US address selected, right?

Also, I now own the pack, and also only need about half the games. Unfortunately, I suspect they're probably more-or-less the same half you need. But if you let me know which games you need anyway, we can see if it works out.

8. Nexuiz [Download]

10. Red Faction Guerrilla [Download]

11. Saints Row 2 [Download]

14. Supreme Commander: Forged Alliance [Download]

18. Warhammer 40k: Dawn of War Gold [Download]

@MattyFTM: Yup, I defiantly had a good ole US address selected.

@Fattony12000: Yeah, as I guessed they're pretty much the same ones I need. I own Saints Row 2 and Dawn of War 1. And I need the CoH games. But apart from those slight differences, my list is pretty much the same.

I suspect most people will be in a similar situation, what with people having bought the THQ Humble bundle and a few of the other big deals.

It's a little depressing that I own every single one of those games on Steam yet have never purchased any THQ publisher packs. I have a buying problem.

Sorry to have lead you all on a wild goose chase, I used another of my cards (from a different bank) and it went through!

Expect to see some free game codes come your ways duders.

Are the codes in the pack steam compatible?

@Cronen: Every single one has a Steam key.

Is it possible to give away games bought on Amazon that aren't redeemable on Steam? I already have regular, ol' COH purchased on Steam, and the GOTY edition included in that pack isn't Steam-compatible. I'll send you the code if you want to try it out, because it'll just sit in my Amazon library untouched otherwise.

I am only missing seven games in this pack on PC, five if you count the ones I've got on Xbox.

Wow. I didn't know I had so many THQ games.
