Wow, didn't this just come out?
If only all games were priced based on reviews.

In for 1, but I just realized, I've never heard of this place before. Anyone have any experience? I noticed PayPal went to a person, not a business.

Anyone get their key yet? I assume they will e-mail it to my paypal associated e-mail.

Not yet. I did get the confirmation email, and yes it came to my paypal email address (spam folder).

UPDATE: Just received all 3 keys, and each activated without issue. Check your spam folders. :)

Just checked my spam folder. The confirmation e-mail was right there, nestled between Vivian's e-mail about a breathtaking single gal living near me, Echelle's e-mail about a prankish French maid in my neighborhood and TracyB's notification of a newly divorced ex-cheerleader a few doors down from my house.

Can't argue with this price! I was going to get it for the PS4, but the framerate issues and the full $60+ price tag make this deal the obvious choice.

My guess, it will be $15 or less by next year

Probably, but if you add in the DLC then it'll be closer to $20. So basically you pay a $6 premium to play it earlier, good enough for me!

I got it because at this price it isn't that big of a deal....

But I've read that it's a pretty crappy game, compared to the other Thief games. Pretty sure it'll be quite a disappointment compared to Dishonored, too (which I enjoyed greatly). My first was Deadly Shadows and I really liked it. Then I played 2 and the difference in mechanics (mainly smoothness of movement and such) and graphics was really hard to get used to, but I got to the last level. Think I stopped playing because it was so friggin massive and I didn't know what to do at one part.

From what I've read, there's really no issue deciding what to do next in this one, though. (Insert sardonic tone)

Well, ordered about 4pm yesterday, haven't received any codes yet, and I have checked my spam folder. Hopefully they come today.

Well my comment was more directed towards Tyler-Durden, who said he wouldn't be playing the game for a year.

But in all other instances, this is a pretty sweet deal if you absolutely need to play this game

I just finished the game and, although my first knee-jerk reaction was discust that they didn't do the previous titles justice, it's actually a pretty good game. Most of the detractions you've probably read are true (too much contextualized movement, horrible story, bad voice acting and some cringe-worthily dumb dialog, dated [but very detailed] graphics). That said, I found the stealth gameplay hugely enjoyable: it's one of the only recent games where you can't blaze through enemies and are forced to use stealth for most everything. Also the actual world/levels, although a bit clausterphobic, are well-designed and very detailed. Moreover, they did generally capture the the "Thief atmosphere" and, despite the naysayers, it is definitely a Thief game and nowhere near as bad as some of the reviews say.

I'd say $26 hits the price/value ratio right on the nose.

I've heard the game is so much better if you turn off some of the stuff that "makes it easy." That'll be the first thing I do.

Still waiting for my keys... (purchased yesterday at 6:30p.m.)

Eh, I'd still wait for the inevitable steam sale for $5. Or the "Game of the Year" edition with all dlc for $7.50.

Yeah, I can only see the price dropping very quickly on this one. If it's already this price...

Tomb Raider was arguably a way better game, and it dropped in price super quickly.

I got my keys a couple hours ago and I ordered last night. I'm pretty sure the emails with the codes are being sent manually and are not automated so it's going to take a while.

EDIT: The keys work perfectly just FYI! :)
