CDkeys are great, keys are just retail copies from around the world, any time I've had to cancel a pre-order it was refunded in like 5 minutes.

Forgive the naivete, but when you try to activate region-locked games on Steam/Origin, does it just stop you with an error before it can fully redeem the code (ergo allowing the vendor to process a refund)? Also, are region-locks something a pub assigns before launch, or could they implement them arbitrarily at any time?

Not much experience with region-locks on PC, so I'd like to know what to expect if I were to purchase retail keys.

Neither Mass Effect 1,2, or 3 support the controller on PC. None of the Dragon Age titles do either. Common sense would tell me it wont support the PC since they haven't in the past. I think the last title on the PC they made that supports a controller was Jade Empire.

I'm pretty certain Dragon Age Inquisition has controller support on PC.

It sure does, which is nice since the mouse controls are kinda wonky.

As someone who skipped over Mass Effect (own all them on PC, don't want to play them without the DLC, don't want to pay $80 in Bioware Points for all the DLC), Resident Evil 7 for $28.70 is the real deal here!

Mac Walters or Mike Gamble said the game would have controller support on PC.

Yep, I've bought a couple games and one or two pre-orders from them and never had any problems. Key usually comes the day before launch.

Be forewarned that we're clamping down on gray market key resellers. Don't know where they're sourcing their keys from, but certain retail keys such as ones sourced from Russia, India, S/E Asia, and so on will have activation and runtime lock.

Caveat emptor.

Yeah, I've heard of this happening in the past. Seems suspect to me, cos I have no idea why they'd want it.

Yeah, if it ain't clear yet, I don't trust this site and yet it has gained an air of acceptability here that something like G2A doesn't get.

I've used them for a few months now with no incident (both PC and XB1 purchases) and have a pretty positive impression, but that sounds odd to me.

Coupon code "CDKEYSXMAS10" is not valid.

I'm guessing it's just 10% off? Because the link right now gives me $55 CAD. 37 USD is about $50 CAD.

I've not had an issue in the past canceling a pre-order with CDKeys if you change your mind/find it cheaper elsewhere.

EDIT: Has the coupon code expired?

Honestly, I wasn't sure. I had tried to test the code at Checkout and clicked Paypal. It completed the purchase, which I didn't want, without the code. The site is blocked where I work, so I can't check or use their support area to find out.

For those concerned.. I wanted to cancel the order since I already have the Playstation 4 version preordered at an equal discount and was only trying to test the code. A single email to their support and by the end of the day it was cancelled and a refund in full was sent back to me. Pretty efficient if you ask me.

Good luck with this. Amazon will not price match anything except TVs anymore. Not even their own price drops get a credit. They make you return the item and rebuy at a discount with you paying the return shipping even with Prime. .... which.. is why I'm now no longer a Prime member.

Honestly, if past precedent holds up, you can get just about all the single player stuff from the digital deluxe version with a save editor.

Be careful about preordering on CDKeys guys. Games sometimes change from being listed as a "worldwide" code to a European-only region code when it's actually released.

If you play PC games and post on GAF then by now you should be aware that they are legit already because they are pretty well known website.

Except most of GAF 'legit' simply means 'will the key work or not'.

If that's your definition of 'legit' then sure, CDKeys are 'legit'.

There's a big difference between a company who buys retails copies and scans the codes to sell them online. And another when the marketplace of the other store is plagued by people selling keys bought with stolen credit cards.

If it doesn't work ask them for a refund. After you receive it, move on with your life.

Edit: Unless you're implying they're doing something illegal.
