    About three days ago, two separate CAGs in two separate Cheap Ass Gamer threads had problems with GMG - one had Civ V removed from their Steam library, and 2K told them GMG was not a legitimate Steam reseller, and another was banned from the EA forums for posting GMG deals - EA told them that GMG was not a legitimate Steam reseller.

    I used to tell people that despite their security issues, payment issues, checkout issues and support issues, GMG should be safe for in-stock Steam keys, but now... maybe not. :p
    Terrible company. My one and only experience with them involved an apparently failed checkout for Borderlands, which they then charged me for a few days later. At this point I'd bought it elsewhere, so kindly asked for a refund or a credit of some-sort.

    Their customer support couldn't understand what I was asking for. I told them I had no games in my GMG account, but I was ten quid shy. They still didn't get it. I gave up, said goodbye to my money and to a terrible DD service.

    Signing up for Steam tonight \o/. Quite excited. First time in 10 years that I'll be a PC gamer (on the side at least).

    I tried Arkham Asylum last night and struggled a bit with the keys, but it did look beautiful.

    Will do :)

    So when signing up, I assume it will ask me for my region. Should I say South Africa, or is certain content only available on the US and UK Steam Store (sorry if this is a stupid question)?

    Get a 360 controller for windows for games like Batman.

    The world is going mad. Me? I'm doing fine.

    Regardless of region any blocks are IP-based, so I get lots of problems because I'm based in Korea (I sometimes get benefit of US prices, but occasionally the UK prices are cheaper and certain companies have many titles missing in this region such as Sega, Capcom, and Konami IIRC).

    ps. re: Batman : AA, I am surprised at how quickly I got used to the mouse and keyboard for a genre it really shouldn't work well on but I got sick of the effort of getting a joypad working so stuck with it)

    +1 on the controller. Dunno about the region, sorry. I guess they can cross reference with your CC if you use one.

    Yeah, I'll just go with SA and hope it isn't horrible in comparison.

    Definitely getting a controller asap. Thanks guys.

    I have one. Hooked it up, recongised by windows as a controller but once in the AA game, it sticks to keyboard and mouse and the stupid GFWL won't let me change it.

    edit:
    just saw this

    So +1 to that basically. Works really well on keyboard and mouse and was a hassle to try and get a pad working.

    Weird. I had no hassle. It just worked.

    Mine too. Actually, I really didn't like Batman: AA with keyb/m, and couldn't figure out the love for the game (got about four-five hours in). Came back six months later rocking a 360 pad, and it was really rather a good game (played straight through, lotsa fun!). All the key prompts automatically changed to pad prompts, too. :)

    I don't have an official 360 receiver, so installing it involves right-clicking on the device in Device Manager and installing the driver for 360 Controller for Windows (or whatever). If you don't know how to do that, though, it could be quite a hassle.

    I'm pretty sure you don't "change" it to pad in AA it's automatic when the pad is connected or turned on if the wireless one, it's certainly nothing to do with GFWL either. Do you have problems with other games? Sounds like driver or pad problems to me.

    I think I only tried it in one other game before aaaaages ago and it didn't work. So maybe I should check the drivers. When windows recongised the pad I assumed all was well.

    Yeah thought so, download the driver off the net and try AA again if it still doesn't work you have a problem with the pad itself.

    As I recall, you just pick the pad up and use it.

    See that's what I had read on EG, so I just plugged it in and expected to use it. Didn't check drivers and such.
    I'll have a look at it next time I find a moment to try and play a game. AA is fine on kb+mouse but the lego star wars game was a pain and I gave up.

    Yeah, I noticed that. You don't get any of the tracks or trains though I think... Just the packs you already own.

    That's pretty ace, considering they've done that for every iteration. I bought the original Railworks and have gone through all following versions for free.

    MOO1+2, Outcast, Blood 2, SC1+1, IW1, IW2 and possibly Silver are all worth closer inspection at those prices.
