  • Regarding orlygift threads (and, in fact, ANY giveaway thread)

    I'm going to try this one more time in a different manner and hope people actually read this before posting.

    When you want to post a thread regarding a giveaway, LOOK at the nature of the giveaway.

    How many keys are there available? Can everyone, or a large number of people, get a key quickly?

    What kind of contest is it? Is it a raffle entry giveaway?


    For giveaways like Bundle Stars' recent massive key giveaways (Skyborn, Bionic Dues, etc.) these have hundreds of thousands of keys (200,000 in fact), so it is highly likely that everyone will be able to get a key. Also, the entry system is painless (unless you consider giving up your social media info painful) and gets you a key almost instantaneously. Therefore, giveaways of that sort and quantity should be posted in Deals and Freebies.

    IN CONTRAST, orlygift giveaways:
    1. Are minuscule in comparison. 2k keys. 3k keys. The Bug Butcher had a mere 1k keys.
    2. Are run as raffles and are not instant-win.

    Clearly, not everyone will be able to get a key, and it becomes VERY hard to classify it as a "freebie" after that.
    Therefore, where do orlygift threads belong? If you guessed "Limited Giveaways", give yourself 100 internet points.

    As such, any threads that are posted in the wrong place will be shifted.

  • Jet Gunner key received yesterday and already in use

    *sigh* I can't believe I'm feeding the troll, but here goes. This will be the last time I'm responding to you here, you can go on and rant at how you're being oh-so-wronged and all that kind of s-t, but just don't expect that anyone will take you seriously.

    Now look, @DavidRbb:

    There was a specific disclaimer that came with EVERY single WGN giveaway. If you didn't read it, then you're f-ing blind, I'm sorry to say.

    "Keys are for personal use only and NOT to be used for trade, resale or unathorised[sic] giveaways."

    Think about it. IF you had activated the key YOURSELF, or at least sent it along to a friend PRIVATELY, you wouldn't have had to go through this s-ty mess. But look at you. You went and posted it on a PUBLICALLY VIEWABLE GIVEAWAY SITE. And because it was on a PUBLICALLY VIEWABLE GIVEAWAY SITE, it is PUBLICALLY VIEWABLE BY WGN ADMINISTRATORS who have the right to disable your key that you were attempting to use for UNSCRUPULOUS CV FARMING PURPOSES. And again, I believe you never even bothered to read the page I linked you to. Well, here it is anyway, lazybum.

    "These keys are for YOU only. DO NOT trade or sell them. Also, do not post them on giveaway sites. If you want to give it away, then give it to a friend personally."

    Also, re-reading your wall of text reveals quotes that just make me sad.

    "in any case I am trying to profit from this game"
    REALLY? I MEAN, REALLY? YOU WANT TO PROFIT FROM SOMETHING THAT YOU WERE GIVEN FOR FREE? How dishonest of you.

    "preferably give them away to someone could use"
    SO WHY BOTHER TO ENTER, THEN, IF YOU WERE NOT PLANNING TO PLAY THE GAME? COULD YOU NOT HAVE LINKED THEM TO THE WGN PAGE AND GET THEM TO SIGN UP INSTEAD?


    At the moderators:
    I apologise if I've gone over the top, but I felt it needed to be said. If you'd like to ban me, do as you wish.

  • Increasing Value of Steam Account

    @Mushe So if I have absolutely no money to spend on buying games and no facilities of earning money for buying games, and want to get games for free, does that automatically make me a dick?

    Kindly consider the fact that not everyone is as privileged as you are.

    And it's not like the developers aren't getting any money. Someone else had already bought the game to giveaway in the cases mentioned above. They don't just magically appear out of thin air.

  • New free game on steam: Hazard ops

    Oops, sorry!
    An error was encountered while processing your request:

    This item is currently unavailable in your region

    Maybe you should edit your poll to add the option "Not available in my fucking region, wtf volvo". ;)

    (Interestingly, I tested, it's available in the UK region but not in the US region.)

  • VG247.com 250,000 keys of Racer 8

    If you missed the previous Indie Gala store giveaways (which is actually okay, because these games kind of suck - although Racer 8 has cards), they've partnered with VG247.com to offer another giveaway of these two games.

    Chaos Domain Source
    Chaos Domain Direct Woobox

    Racer 8 Source
    Racer 8 Direct Woobox

    FACEBOOK/TWITTER ALERT, for those who detest those services.

    EDIT: Chaos Domain is over but Racer 8 is still ongoing.
