    @FuzzyBlueBaron liked it so I'll leave it to his discretion but that link is advertising, and while G2A isn't strictly a scam they do indeed do very scammy stuff. Their prices are pretty okay and allow the person suggesting to make a little bit of money, the problem comes in with how they get their games, they don't care how, and sometimes they'll sell you 'protection' but that costs extra and basically just ensures they don't double sale or it doesn't get blocked because it was stolen, or rather that in such a case you will get another key (MAYBE who knows, they'll probably hassle out the process to the point it's not worth that little bit of money you saved though). That's really where sites like this one run into issues.

    Also the link posted is directly a link for @giggiggiggiggig to make money off of, I'm going to at the very least edit it out with the direct link.

    I must confess I am guilty of liking it simply bc 'adding another option to the pile', not bc I was actually aware of what G2A is and how it operates. I've just done a spot of research and tbh I'm rather uncomfortable with including any grey market resellers in the mix. I'll defer to your experience in these things, @BlueLuigi (i.e. feel free to change/revert if necessary), but for the moment I've removed the link to G2A and would request that people not link grey market sites in future.

    An article on the issue that seemed like a decent jumping off point (is Polygon, but w/e): http://www.polygon.com/2015/2/9/800...ose-mysteriously-cheap-gray-market-game-codes

    Yikes! sorry guys didn't mean to be such a hassle. I'll just go and delete my messages. Didn't even realize how sketchy g2a was.

    Consider adding to the main page
    https://isthereanydeal.com/#/
    Checks for bundles/deals on almost every website that offers them, runs stats on said games and also tells you if what you're buying will be redeemable on steam or DRM-free, allows you to sync your steam wishlist to their 'waitlist' to check for games to hit a certain price range as well and then notify you via email. Pretty useful even if you just want to keep up on bundles to be honest.

    Furthermore here's a good SEGA freebie going on http://www.makewarnotlove.com/results.php
    Today's freebies: Streets of Rage 2, Binary Domain, Condemned
    Tomorrow: Gunstar Heroes, Renegade Ops, Viking: Battle for Asgard

    Gunstar Heroes is one of my faves can't wait to play it again. In a way I wish these retro steam titles has achievements so I'd have a bit more motivation to just play them there instead of on handheld emulator.
