Video Game Deals Catch-All

Has anyone ever had to interact with HumbleBundle support? I purchased the paradox bundle a few hours after it launched, have the paypal history and transaction ID, funds removed etc, but have yet to receive an email from them with a link to the keys page.

I contacted them via email on 30th August, but haven't had anything other than automated responses. I'd hate to miss out on the bundle, especially since I have actually already bought it, and I'd rather not have to buy it twice.

I haven't but something tells me it might have been automatic because of the holiday weekend.

My eBay listing of some 360 games is currently going for practically nothing if anyone here is interested:

It's a steal at its current price.

Ahh, it wasn't a Holiday here That's probably what it is, thanks. Just hope they get back to me within 2 days before the bundle finishes

Why so cheap? You could get a lot more than 50$ if you trade those in at Gamestop/BB/Amazon, especially if you trade towards a new console?

You'll probably get a response today. No matter what, they strike me as the kind of place that is going to do you right, especially if you've got a transaction receipt and funds deducted, even if the bundle had expired.

I've bought a ton of HumbleBundles, and have never missed an email - have you checked your spam filter?

I don't think his goal is to sell it at $50.

Derp.

I agree it's a super low price, but that's just to give people an incentive to bid.

I already went to my local GameStop and since I don't have the cases and manuals, they flat out told me that they couldn't verify I hadn't "stolen all of the games" and would only accept 5 at a time per day lest he get in trouble and fired. That would have necessitated multiple trips I don't feel like making just to end up getting $3 per game anyway, so I figured eBay was the way to go.

The only reason I don't have them is they were taking up an entire bookcase and after watching a "Sessler's Something" where Adam Sessler argued for getting rid of his cases, I decided to do the same. Doesn't make me a thief as GameStop seems to think. >.<

TBH, that sounds like a BS line from someone who doesn't want to "waste time" checking-in used games.

So much of GameStop's profit and business model comes from buying back used games, that I doubt they'd have a policy where they assume a customer is a thief just because you don't have manuals and cases. I'd call up a different store (and mention you were called a thief) and see what they say.

To me, I would have MORE flags go off in my head if someone was coming in every day for two weeks straight trading in a handful of games, especially if they're looking for cash instead of store credit.

Very good point. Unfortunately, the nearest Best Buy and GameStop to where I live is over an hour away.

I can understand not wanting to sit there and manually type in each game but I was really put off by the idea that I had stolen them. He said they couldn't be sure because the condition of the discs were very good. I told him that I just take very good care of my things but I guess I can also see why someone could twist that as a reason the games were stolen.

I'm way too passive to get angry about it, I just traded in the handful of games and left.

Be sure to go to the Humblebundle site and log in. You can find a list of all the bundles you've purchased, with download codes and everything. If it still isn't up there, then I'd start to worry.

Holy crap. Metro Last Light is on Sale for $20 on Steam.

That's actually a copy-paste job from CheapAssGamer, but I did some re-formatting and stripped out the space bucks in defiance of space buckiness. (Though non-Americanadians will have to check their own XBLMs for their prices.)

The humble support ninja @humblesupport has been active on Twitter again today, I'd shoot them a message there just to prompt things. Though they did mention a huge backlog of emails from the holiday weekend.

That was quick. And cheap.

That's what she...

Frak, I just spent $14.99 for Civ V: BNW like, 3 days ago.

Me too, but I'm still happy with the price. $15 seems like the right price for all that content.

So tempting; what amazing things does Brave New World add to the Civ 5 game? I know there have been a lot of things buzzing about the site but I cannot seem to recall specifics.

Well, my problem is made a little more complicated by the fact that until I went to purchase this bundle, I hadn't signed up - just entered email address on a bundle by bundle basis. I then signed up, but was waiting for the activation email (for too long) so I went ahead and purchased as a one-off again. Since then I activated my account, and 'claimed' my other bundles to my account, but still no sign of this one. I even tried the 'Resend my keyes' function, and that just sent me links to the bundles I already had 'claimed'.

I just wish I could get an answer, before it's too late.

EDIT: Just to say that they got in touch and all is resolved now

That's an insane deal. I'm surprised they've done that so early given how Deep Silver says it's selling way better than 2033 but hey, still awesome!

The Bundle Stars Men of War Bundle includes every single MOW title and DLC ever made for $3. That's a whole lot helmet-clicking for the money.

And Steam keys for all of them. That's... Nuts.

Yeah, I bit. I seem to remember not liking the demo terribly, but at that price I'll give it another shot.

For the pedants: it's $3.09 if purchased through Paypal, as it's sold in GBP and Paypal charges a conversion fee.
