Pre-purchase a game and get a 35% off voucher


















And if you've been waiting patiently, this is certainly your moment to clean-up.

If you pre-purchase any of the digital titles listed below from Green Man Gaming, after the transaction you will receive a 35% off voucher valid across hundreds of digital games on our site. Once you receive it you'll have precisely 21 days to redeem it. These vouchers will not be given out after 1200 GMT December 14th. Want to know how to make the absolute most of this offer? Well simply read on...


Pre-purchase any of these games, and get a 35% off voucher in your order confirmation email (also available in your Keys page). Bear in mind regional restrictions as standard still apply:
And just before we get to the secret, there's also a trailer for Company of Heroes 2 to give some epic atmosphere when you discover it...


MAKE THE MOST OF IT:

If you buy any one of those games listed above, you'll receive a 35% off voucher. You could use that voucher on one of the games above*, and get another voucher. Rinse and repeat til you've cleaned up! How's that for a slice of fried gold?

A good kick-off point (for those outside of the UK, sorry mates, can't sell it there yet!) is BioShock Infinite, as vouchers aren't valid on this title, but you'll still receive one if you order it. If you order it now and choose cashback you'll receive your reward as fast as your bank can process (credit wouldn't go to your account until the game releases).  Then use that cashback and your 35% voucher on another pre-purchase game so you get another 35% voucher!

That's like basically 35% off every game you'll want to play next year!

An important note, each voucher you get is single-use, and tied to your account, so make sure you're logged in, and when you use it, you mean it!

Tracking
As many users have reported, we’ve had issues with tracking across all three formats in the last few weeks, and where the PS3 and Steam accounts are concerned, we’ve been fixing them as they occur.
Unfortunately we’ve had larger problems with the XBOX360 tracking, which have lead to much slower updates for many users. We’re aware of these problems with the automatic tracking, but currently we’re working on our completely new tracking system rather than focusing on repairing the old one.  
We will still fix intermittent issues as best we can, however the solution really lays in our rebuild of tracking as a whole.  Your patience on this is very much appreciated as we are working on the future of the site.
We should have a Beta ready for users in December, and more info in the next couple of weeks on how the system will work. The first platform that we’re focusing on for the new system is the 360 (where we have had the most significant issues), with PC and PS3 to follow soon after.
In the meantime, we’re doing all we can to keep the 360 updates coming through without slowing down our work on a full solution. Unfortunately updating the 360 tracking is more intensive than other formats right now. Our priority is to come up with a system that is both much faster and more reliable!
In the meantime, please be aware that mods and game admins are not in control of this system at all and while they would love to help solve game tracking problems, they have no ability to do so!  Please bear with us, as we know we are building something great.
Blog
Following some feedback, we’re being careful to approach use of the blog in a way that doesn’t spam users who aren’t as interested in all content, including a profile setting that could be used to turn off non-technical blog updates, but we’re still planning on rolling out community content in December.

Site Performance Improved

Hi All!

We appreciate some users have had problems accessing deals over the last few hours. This is due to the huge demand of our Winter Wonderland sale, which is now officially our biggest sale ever, so a huge thank you to everyone who has been a part of its first day.

The demands has surprised even us, with double the amount of users on the site at once than we've ever had before. We're very sorry to everyone affected with slowdowns this evening, and we've been working all evening to fire up more servers to handle the huge increase in users. The site should now be working a lot faster for all users, so if you've been having time out problems, give it another go now!

If you've posted a ticket during the sale, rest assured the Customer Service guys are working a full capacity over the weekend to get your problems sorted.

Most Majestic Majestic-12 Giveaway





















UPDATE 1043 Friday 23rd November: Winners have been picked! Congratulations to all of you who won!

Thanks to the creator of Majestic-12, we have a ton of copies to give away! Have a read of the game description:

Majestic-12 a 3d side-scrolling shooter in the vein of Contra mixed with Castle Crashers. The game is interesting because it's satisfying. It's like the snap a branch makes when it breaks in half, it's like biting into a giant cheeseburger. That instant OMFG cluster carnage, oh look there's depth, nom nom sensation. It makes you dropsmash the bad guys just to see if they'll form a stable squishy-pile, chocolate ice cream, hearing a whip crack.

Are you a fan of side-scrolling shooters and cluster carnage? Well for a chance to win, just follow these two simple steps:

and


At 10am GMT Friday November 23rd we'll choose 15 users at random who have both followed us and tweeted, and contact them with their prize!*

New to GMG: November 14th



















A new selection of games makes it live to Green Man Gaming this week. Chief among them is certainly Riptide. Though we've got a long wait ahead of us, it does mean we have plenty of time to prepare for the zombie infestations.

Dead Island: Riptide Not available in Germany due to anti-zombie legislation

Crusader Kings II: Sunset Invasion

Majestic-12 3D side-scrolling shooter. Up to the challenge?

Cities in Motion Now available on Steam, and at a discount!

Dungeons: Gold Edition

Awesomenauts DLC A whole hell of a lot of it!

Will not survive the zombie apocalypse

Free game entering atmosphere


















UPDATE 12.05 GMT Nov. 14th:
This offer has now ended, as originally stated in the post.

UPDATE 15.56: Today has been crazy at the GMG office. This is by far our biggest giveaway ever! We'd like to say a massive thanks to everyone taking part, and for sharing it with your friends and clans alike.

You can pre-load the game via Capsule as soon as you have ordered it, however keys to activate the game will not be sent out until tomorrow.  We will start distributing these keys from tomorrow afternoon (around 4pm GMT).

Thanks for your patience.

UPDATE 14.03 GMT: To alleviate current server troubles we're temporarily marking the game as Out of Stock - we've not actually run out of keys at the moment, it's just so we can take important measures to resolve the load issues! It shall be made available again soon.

UPDATE 12.49 GMT: The site is currently experiencing very heavy load. We're aware of this and are working hard on the problem. Thank you for your patience.


Behold! As this mysterious meteorite smashes to the ground, we find it's a free game, available until 1200 UTC/GMT November 14th* ...


Bring your finest commander's hat as you take to the helm of an entire faction, fighting for your own survival and claiming a stake on the red planet.  There are 4 separate playable factions. The Eurasian Dynasty are the largest human faction, who rely on sheer strength and numbers. The United Civilized States, who were previously made up of cybernetically enhanced humans, except the machines went SkyNet on them and killed them all, so now it's just robots! The Lunar Corporation are the smallest, I hear, and relatively peaceful. Not so peaceful that they don't have lasers, though! Lastly we have the Morphidian Aliens, formerly imprisoned beneath the surface of Mars, woken up by those pesky humans. We think these guys are the way to go. You wish you were as cool as those aliens.


If you're feeling particularly jovial you can even give a shout out of thanks to either us or TopWare on Facebook!

-James
Could probably save mankind as long as it doesn't involve going through too many doors


*Or until we run out of the 50,000 keys we have for it. So grab it quick! Bear in mind that only one free game can be redeemed per IP address.

New to GMG: Sine Mora is 25% off


















Sine Mora has been getting a fair bit of attention with its release, and rightly so. If you're a fan of fast-moving objects, explosive amounts of colour, and vibrating uncontrollably on the floor after the massive seizure it'll provide, then LOOK NO FURTHER THAN THIS TRAILER!



Naturally you'll want to make sure you're getting the best deal available, so pick up Sine Mora from Green Man Gaming for 25% off with our voucher (valid until 16th November 1200 UTC/GMT): 

GMG25-UAAHK-6AI9S

Just a man with insufficient reaction speeds to master this mental game.

Keep us covered: Your choice


















UPDATE 14th November: Thanks for your submissions and votes all! We put it to a tie-breaker in our department after Alan Wake and Skyrim had equal votes. Keep an eye out for our next Cover competition, too.

We've had some kick-ass submissions for this! It's been difficult but I've narrowed it down to a much smaller selection for what to use, but we figure it's a lot better that you guys make the final choice for what to put up, so make a comment below with whichever one you like best. The time-limit is "probably a couple of days, but definitely in time for the weekend."

StewartX - Double Rainbow in Borderlands 2. It's... so.. beautiful. What does this mean?

gr4j0m3r - The Crows are Circling in Alan Wake.

Jepp - Getting Big-Headed in Saints Row: The Third.

Beema - Killing Dragons with bits of sharp wood in Skyrim.

Pablo - Disrupting to the MAX in Just Cause 2.

Whichever wins we'll add a little "by <name>" before we put it up on Facebook (and fingers crossed we don't lose any quality when we upload it!)


What's your favourite?

Roundup: Discounts and Competitions Galore

Deals
  • Borderlands 2, Chivalry, and XCOM: Enemy Unknown are 35% off with an awesome voucher, just enter this code when you have one of these games in the basket: GMG35-5BRU6-ZDRX7

  • Bargain Bucket Workshop Week - help make GMG better and win a game for it, too.



Other general bits and pieces

Mitch, a regular reviewer of games for GMG, has written about Warfighter. I figure it's something to do with wars and how he fights in them.

Further Skyrim DLC has been announced, called Dragonborn.

Related, more information about The Elder Scrolls MMO has come to light. I'm still not sure I'm actually convinced. I think the TES series spark is lost as soon as it becomes a multiplayer game. There's absolutely no room for compromise. You know it's true.

A release date for a second GTA V trailer has been announced by Rockstar, though until the trailer actually gets here I'm not sure how that's news. Don't get me wrong, we're excited. But really? 


-James
Summarily summarising the week, with a penchant for probably forgetting lots of what happened.

Multiple Vouchers Incoming


Massive deals abound to give you a full weekend of gaming at a price we know you'll love. It's as easy as ABC.

A is for the Aliens you'll be pulverising in XCOM,
B is for the Borderlands you'll be blowing apart with your six-shooter that fires acid bullets faster than you can spit,
C is for Chivalry, and all the heads you'll be decapitating

Easy as...

1. Grab what you want
2. Cram this code* into the checkout for 35% off Borderlands 2, Chivalry or XCOM Enemy Unknown:

GMG35-5BRU6-ZDRX7

3. Immerse yourself in the awesome power of videogames.

Are you not a fan of swords, guns or being in command? No matter what your preference is you can use this code for 25% off of hundreds of other digital titles:

GMG25-UAAHK-6AI9S

Perhaps instead you're keen to strike from the shadows, taking down specific targets without them ever knowing you were there. Perhaps you're waiting for Agent 47 in Hitman: Absolution.

We're aware of the problem and aiming to get keys to those affected as soon as we possibly can, and we'll update everyone on the blog and Twitter as soon as keys are available.The game has temporarily been removed the main site until all current customers have been supplied with keys, and new keys are entered into our system.To any users who took advantage of the Battlefield 3 Premium offer but haven't received a key from us, there is no need to create a support ticket as we're aware of all users who currently do not have keys. If you've already created a ticket, we'll get back to you as soon as possible.- GMG Team

Hitman Absolution: Plenty of Wardrobe



















Hitman: Absolution is less than 2 weeks away, I'm so excited I've already been thinking about taking the wire for my mouse and garrotting George, who sits next to me. I probably won't though. I mean, we don't even have any cupboards to put him in afterwards.

In this Ultimate Assassin trailer we see Agent 47 quickly showing off a number of disguises, running through fiery buildings, blowing stuff up, looking for aliens in a cornfield, pushing people (rudely), shooting, being shot at, and blowing more stuff up.  Most importantly, he doesn't care about looking at the explosions, because he is Agent 47. Cool guys don't look at explosions.


You can pre-purchase it now from GMG and save 25% with this awesome code, too:

Mitch Reviews: Medal of Honor Warfighter



















Is Medal of Honor: Warfighter a worthy successor to 2010’s installment or has its honour been tarnished?

Story  

The story follows Tier 1 operators as they travel around the world to prevent a terrorist attack from taking place.   Whilst the story may sound fairly commonplace for a military shooter, what helps it to stand out is the emotional, family aspect of it, which sees protagonist Preacher trying to amend his marriage as he balances it against his military duties.

Characters  

Due to the short campaign, you won’t have much time to grow fond of your characters but you’ll still feel a certain attachment to them because of the relationships they’ve formed together. The game never attempts to place you alongside the characters, but makes more of an effort to have you play witness to their story.



The team from the 2010 reboot appear again and are as likable as they ever were, with Preacher taking the spotlight, shining it on his family issues and life-changing choices.  New characters such as Stump are introduced, but you won’t have many interactions with them beyond playing a few missions and seeing them in a handful of cutscenes. Their brief screentime is enjoyable, but overall serves the purpose of padding out the team.

Gameplay  

The gameplay is tight and has added weight as to not make you feel like you’re handling a toy gun, with every penetrating bullet rewarding you with a sense of achievement.   Melee is satisfying and you’ll be presented with a short animation showing you stealthily axing someone from behind or going in for a brutal kill before you can be spotted.

The standout thing for me was the sniping; whilst it is simple, it takes concentration and tact to be able to successfully lay your enemies to waste. Warfighter takes realism one step further and adds bullet drop to the gunplay, forcing you to aim that bit higher when further away so that the bullet can travel the distance and make a hit.



There’s no customisation in the campaign but the weapons come fitted with standard scopes, suppressors, and more, and there is a large array of weapons to choose from including sniper rifles, assault rifles and heavy machine guns. All feel different and will come useful at different parts of the story, constantly encouraging you to venture out of your comfort zone to include more variety.

You can lean to aid yourself in making a quick shot and shift back down again but this isn’t half as useful as the sliding mechanic is. When utilised correctly, you’ll save yourself many restarts as you slide away from enemy fire.

Graphics & Audio

Character models may look unpolished and rough but the guns, cutscenes, light, and weather effects look outstanding. Danger Close is clearly proud of this as many levels feature pouring rain, muzzle flares, spotlights and flickering lights and an abundance of explosions. Just be prepared to see a lot of rain and darkness.

The CGI cutscenes could have benefitted from more time but they make a nice change of pace from the in-game cutscenes also heavily featured in Warfighter. They contain some heart-wrenching moments, particularly later in the story that wouldn’t have had the same effect with the games somewhat shoddy character models.

The graphics overall are quite strong and there wasn’t any noticeable screentear, despite how much may be going on at any given time, and everything runs smoothly.



The audio is best experienced with surround sound or good quality headphones, allowing you to catch the full effect as you’re going to constantly being surrounded by bangs.

Multiplayer

Multiplayer plays it safe and offers standard game modes such as capture the flag, team deathmatch, and objective.  It has a strong focus on teamwork not seen in many other first-person shooters.   You’re assigned a fireteam buddy who will spawn on you and vice versa for points. You’re rewarded experience for co-operating and won’t find much room for being a lone wolf, especially when people are forming plans with their friends on how to win. This is a standout feature but isn’t unique to the series.

There are 6 classes and you can pick what nation to represent but you’ll most likely head in to the game with a class in mind that you’ll be familiar with. Servers are good and there is minimum lag in a game of 20 people, making for a smooth experience.

Lasting Appeal  

Although the campaign lasts roughly 6 hours on normal mode, you can look forward to the strong multiplayer which should see a healthy amount of players for the foreseeable future, just like the first installment in the reboot had and still does.

Medal of Honor: Warfighter doesn’t push any boundaries and doesn’t try anything unique, but it’s still a strong game in its own right and should be experienced, especially if you’re a fan of the series or enjoy modern day shooters in general.

Bargain Banner Workshop Week








UPDATE 13.50 GMT November 15th: We've picked a winner! Congratulations to H1N1337!

We've been seeing a great community involvement on our Keep Us Covered post with some truly awesome submissions, and while that's running we're putting out something extra too...

You've likely seen the Bargain Bucket page on our site, and like our new Hot Deals page, we want a hot new banner to put at the top of it, and we want your ideas! The idea we like best will receive a copy of Chivalry.  You could even call it a banner tithe, suitably called for the godly picture you will paint for us.

At 1200 UTC Thursday November 15th we'll look over all the entries, choose our favourite and then provide the winner with a copy of Chivalry! Then just sit back, relax and watch your creation immortalised on the GMG website.

Check:

  • That your submission has the words "Bargain Bucket" and preferably a slogan / tagline. It doesn't need to have a bucket in it.
  • That you don't enter anything smutty or dodgy. Be cool, guys.
  • That you host the file (if you've made one) on imgur. A brief description of your idea is also fine, in place of an image.
  • That you include your GMG username so we can contact you if you win.
  • That you submit it before the above time.
  • Yourself, before you wreck yourself.

-James
Did not check himself, and so nearly wrecked himself.

New to GMG: November 7th


Hey gamers,

Let me axe you a question, have you seen that Chivalry is now available on Green Man Gaming?

Well then... Let me axe you another question, did you see my incredibly lyrical poem about it? No? Below is the enhanced special edition:

You can now wield swords and maces,
To crack shields and faces.

-James.

Behold our other works, now in the great compendium of Green Man Gaming:

Until next time, gentle townsfolk.

Keep us covered on Facebook

Hey gamers of the world,

In order to keep our look fresh we like to update our Facebook cover photo pretty often. We want you to help us by commenting with your most awe-inspiring, action-packed game screenshots (preferably from imgur or Steam's cloud if applicable), then after a week we'll take a few of these and put it to a vote on Facebook. You might say it's a competition, of sorts.

We'll change this up every so often, and if we think one screenshot is particularly awesome we'll use it anyway.

Time to keep us covered and maybe get your name up on our page for a spell!

Football Manager 2013 at 35% Off!
















I'll admit I don't know much about football, but many of the guys here in the office do, and I've been learning a lot.

I'm told it involves groups of men kicking a ball around a field in the hopes of winning some sort of prize, like the ones picture above, from famous Football club Rangers FC, who have probably won the famous World Series at least six times.

Apparently the act of moving the ball around is so complicated that other people called 'Managers' are put in charge of the people who kick the ball.

Their job is to make sure all the people who are kicking the ball are the BEST ball kickers available, so that the team can win more prizes, like free ice cream and discount vouchers at KFC.

Now you too can choose your very favourite FC - be it Rangers, or a good team - and put yourself in the shoes of these gods of football,  for only £20 or $26, using our wonderful 35% voucher, right here:


GMGFM-35OFF-SCORE 


If you win we don't promise a prize, but we do promise to continue offering great discounts on both classic and brand new titles whenever we can. If you picked up this game with our 25% discount in the last few days, drop us a CS ticket and we'll credit you the difference.
