    Has been cheaper on CD Keys in the past (approx. $17). I know people do not consider it a legit site but I've had no problems with them.

      Nothing wrong with cdkeys.com at all, I've used them for years without issue.

        Same here, bought quite a few things without issue

        The main concern is that the keys are sourced from grey areas that don't necessarily reimburse the developer in any meaningful way.

          That's right and if I remember correctly there was a developer who said they would rather people pirate their game than support one of these dodgy sites!

              @Porthos: CdKeys is in the same category of sites - keys obtained from various unofficial sources, including individuals.

                @Lysander: No it's not, G2A are dodgy as. They are the ones who would likely have stolen cc keys as they are just a marketplace who take a cut from the sales on there. CDKeys just buy straight from distributors (often from other regions to save $$)

                @Lysander: CdKeys 'exploit' regional pricing (which I have no issues with, if a company can exploit it then a consumer should be able to as well), G2A is just flat out a dodgy seller's market. They're not even comparable.

                  @Porthos: The point is that it is against licensing terms to do what they do.
                  Infringing the licensing agreement does incur the risk of a key being invalidated.
                  Plus some keys are bought with stolen cards.
                  There is a reason they are not allowed on Reddit and are not included in ITAD etc.

                    Plenty of things that people do every day are against licensing terms, I’m not crying myself to sleep at night worried about it.

                    Infringing the licensing agreement does incur the risk of a key being invalidated.

                    I and many others have purchased off CDKeys and never had an issue, CDKeys and G2A aren’t even in the same ballpark even with how much you try and paint them as being the same.

                    Plus some keys are bought with stolen cards.

                    Cite your source on that claim.

                    It’s funny how people wouldn’t even think twice about buying a DVD or Blu-ray from O/S that isn’t available here, yet isn’t that basically the same thing? Would you say somewhere like Ozgameshop are in the same league as CDKeys and G2A then as they’re buying from one region and selling to another? If not, how are they different?

                    Gotta love how the gaming industry has accomplished being able to demonise third party resellers to the point where certain customers actively support price discrimination by them.

                    Funny how ‘global markets’ are only really allowed to work for select corporations but no one else.

                      It doesn't matter how much you try to justify it by saying other people do lots of things thst are not right - this can never be an excuse or justification.
                      If you get stopped by police for speeding how often do you think you will get out of your fine by saying other people speed too?

                      Also, you compare physical goods and immaterial goods but they are not the same legally even if you want them to be.

                      If you want to find dources why CDKeys is dodgy, search Reddit and ask the mods why no deals are allowed on there. You seem to have a vested interested in this topic - that being so please do not expect to get your information served to you on a plate.

                      I make it simple (as real life is already complex enough): I am cautious with any company that is not an official reseller and are unwilling to trll me the exact source of their keys.
                      That being said, people are free to support those companies and if it works for them fine. I just hope that the same people then do not complain if companoes take measures to protect themselves against such conduct.

                        Did you really just try and compare someone unknowingly going against a company's T&C's to breaking the law with speeding?? Wow..

                        Also, you compare physical goods and immaterial goods but they are not the same legally even if you want them to be.

                        Then explain how they're not in this regard. Both are having an artificial restriction put on them by a distributor are they not? How is CDKey's buying in one region and selling in another any different to OzGameshop doing the same thing, since OzGameshop send keys through email as well for some of their products. Have you gone and asked them where they source their keys from considering you seem so concerned with it?

                        If you want to find dources why CDKeys is dodgy, search Reddit and ask the mods why no deals are allowed on there. You seem to have a vested interested in this topic - that being so please do not expect to get your information served to you on a plate.

                        You're the one making the claim that they get their keys through stolen credit cards and individuals, same as what G2A do, and the best argument you can come back with is 'search Reddit and do your own research on the claim I've made'? Yeah, that's not how that works. You're the one making the claim, you're the one who shows your evidence for it.

                        Way to try and play the man not the ball though, accusing me of having a vested interest in CDKey's and the like, yet you're the one with a foot in the door of working in IP, no wonder you've had such (mod: edited) for a certain digital store front since they launched. But no you're right, I've been a member on here for over 8 years and in all that time I've just been waiting to say something about CDKey's in a positive light, damn you're onto me.

                        I make it simple (as real life is already complex enough): I am cautious with any company that is not an official reseller and are unwilling to trll me the exact source of their keys.

                        That's nice, do you go to all companies out there and ask who their wholesaler/distributor is, then when they don't/won't tell you you just make unsubstantiated claims about them because you've had a tantrum about it?

                        •  

                          @Porthos: Let's recapitulate what you say:

                          1. Everyone who speeds intentionally sets out to do so.

                          2. You know there is an exploit in regional pricing which is against licensing terms and yet you claim it is "unknowingly."

                          3. You seem to believe just because I state a fact I am under a duty to prove that fact to every denier.

                          4. You run out of arguments and start becoming personal.

                          5. You have been a member of 8 years and yet you have the mistaken belief you get to decide what must be proven to you and who must do the proving.

                          Here is the response:

                          1. If you believe so, that's your problem and prerogative. Many people who get caught for speeding are speeding unintentionally - just ask the police and ask your friends and family if they think "I am about to drive to shops and I plan to break the law by speeding."

                          2.If you exploit something and you know you do it then by definition it is not unknowingly.

                          1. I state facts and nothing more. I am under no obligation whatsoever to provide anything to you. In fact, if you want me to spend time explaining the legal situation to you and provide you with research you will have to pay a the same fee for my time as all commercial/rudish clients have to pay - I am happy to donate the fee to the fires but you will have to pay. The fee is commensurate with 13 year qualification in the legal sector so not cheap.

                          2. Becoming insulting does not help your argument - in fact it undermines any credibility you have.

                          5.If you want to know more about t the topic, search Reddit or use Google. Or see if CDKeys mentions being an official or authorised reseller. No one is under any obligation to do this work for you.
                          In my family there are some choice words for someone with an attitude like yours but of course I cannot write them here as they would get me banned for 10 lifetimes.

                          Just to be clear:

                          It is fine for you to do whatever you like but it is equally fine to provide people info to help them decide if they want to take the risk.
                          Plus, by using what you call an exploit you essentially take money away from the developers, including Aussie developers (Hand of Fate for example) - personally I find this horrid given their generosity in relation to the fire bundle for example but of course you are free to do whatever you like.
                          I fear that all this drawing attention to CDKeys could also result in someone notifying Steam, Bethesda etc. who could then do something about CDKeys's business model as it is essentially stealing from them and impacting their bottom line and employees.

                            Literally never said or implied that. Read what I wrote again, I was simply saying how ridiculous it was to even remotely compare the two.

                            You know there is an exploit in regional pricing which is against licensing terms and yet you claim it is "unknowingly."

                            Again, never said that, I said flat out I know what they do and I'm 110% fine with it. And I'll say it again, "if a company can exploit it then a consumer should be able to as well".

                            You seem to believe just because I state a fact I am under a duty to prove that fact to every denier.

                            If it's a fact, then it should be easy for you to show some proof. You're the one who made the claim.

                            You run out of arguments and start becoming personal.

                            Incredibly rich coming from you who accused me first of having a "vested interested in this topic", yet then can't seem to handle when I return the favour with saying something about you.

                            You have been a member of 8 years and yet you have the mistaken belief you get to decide what must be proven to you and who must do the proving.

                            You make the accusation about something, then when asked to cite a source (which if it's true there should be a wealth of ready to access information to prove it) you simple skirt the issue instead of just showing your proof.

                            If you believe so, that's your problem and prerogative. Many people who get caught for speeding are speeding unintentionally - just ask the police and ask your friends and family if they think "I am about to drive to shops and I plan to break the law by speeding."

                            Again, not what I was saying at all, just showing how idiotic the fact you think those 2 things are even remotely alike is just laughable.

                            If you exploit something and you know you do it then by definition it is not unknowingly.

                            Please show me the law in Australia I'm breaking by buying from CDKeys? I know you won't show anything, which for someone who apparently works in IP law is fairly concerning. People have been going against Netflix/Hulu/NBA League Pass etc. T&C's and posting them as deals on here for a long time, where was your outrage with them?

                            I state facts and nothing more. I am under no obligation whatsoever to provide anything to you. In fact, if you want me to spend time explaining the legal situation to you and provide you with research you will have to pay a the same fee for my time as all commercial/rudish clients have to pay - I am happy to donate the fee to the fires but you will have to pay. The fee is commensurate with 13 year qualification in the legal sector so not cheap.

                            Ah once again just avoiding the actual question and trying to big mouth yourself with how 'vast' your knowledge is on the topic, yet not giving even a single shred of actual evidence. Bravo, you definitely do well with the whole 'smoke and mirrors' of it all, and wonder why people couldn't care less about a T&C's filled with legal jargon that is just there to justify someone's job.

                            Becoming insulting does not help your argument - in fact it undermines any credibility you have.

                            See unlike you, I actually can come up with evidence for what I say (you've posted nearly 70% of all Epic's deals). I don't just try and claim that someone has a vested interest in something simply due to comments I've made in a single thread.
                            Where's this outrage of yours in all the latest CDKey deals that have been posted?

                            If you want to know more about t the topic, search Reddit or use Google. Or see if CDKeys mentions being an official or authorised reseller. No one is under any obligation to do this work for you.
                            In my family there are some choice words for someone with an attitude like yours but of course I cannot write them here as they would get me banned for 10 lifetimes.

                            You've literally have no argument over stating something and then providing zero evidence to back up that claim which you say is so readily available. That's nice about your family, there's also many choice words about someone who makes a claim, then instead of just showing their evidence they dance around the issue so much without providing any.

                            I fear that all this drawing attention to CDKeys could also result in someone notifying Steam, Bethesda etc. who could then do something about CDKeys's business model as it is essentially stealing from them and impacting their bottom line and employees.

                            Why would you fear that at all when that's exactly what you want? Do you really believe that Steam, Bethesda etc. have zero knowledge about CDKey's at all and are powerless to stop them if they wanted to?

                              @Porthos: You wrote all this meaningless and repetitive stuff and yet it would have taken you a fraction of that time to read the extensive discussion and information on CDKeys on Reddit.

                              I do often say something in the CDkey posts - I take particular issue with you as you try to imply CDKeys is somehow better than G2A etc which they are not.
                              That is the ONLY reason.
                              If we accept them for what they are and are okay with the devs possibly getting cheated then fine.

                              For the final time: pay for my time (upfront) and I give you all the legal citations and evidence you desire.
                              If I accepted your strange logic with my clients I would never make any money.

                              Note: I also post a lot of deals from other sites - I do have a vested interested in gaming in general.

                                Blowing your own trumpet repeatedly is just showing how shallow your argument is and just making you look desperate and trying to repeatedly deflect.

                                I'll say it one more time: CDKeys 'exploit' regional pricing. I have no issues with that, if a company can exploit it then a consumer should be able to as well. In your mind, apparently only a company should be allowed to do that though.

                                @Lysander: As a cdkeys.com customer I can tell you they are very different to g2a. G2A is a marketplace like eBay and it just matches up sellers and buyers, you have a moderate risk of getting dodgy keys or keys bought with stolen credit cards. G2A sellers have a feedback profile similar to eBay though so if you avoid low rated ones you are normally okay.

                                CDkeys.com is not a marketplace, you buy everything directly from cdkeys.com company. The reason it is banned from /r/gamedeals is because they only list sellers who are authorised by and directly receive keys from publishers which cdkeys does not get their keys direct from the publisher.

                                Cdkeys buys through overseas channels that are not licensed to sell directly to our region and can benefit from global economy bringing down the prices.

                                You will see on /r/gamedeals they don't care about licensing restrictions as a popular site to buy discount games via vpn (nuuvem) is often listed but thats allowed because they get their keys directly from publishers intending sale to south america only.

                                Cdkeys operates in a completely different manner to G2A. Basically Kogan (grey import) vs eBay (buyer seller marketplace)

                                Over the years I have had several keys revoked that I purchased from buyer seller key sites but never had anything revoked from cdkeys.com

                                  @Agret: Well, many friends of mine and I had keys revoked and received dodgy keys.
                                  They also used to purchase keys from those people that buy up keys from trading sites which increased the risk of dodgy keys.
                                  Plus, if you circumvent geographical and regional pricing which is their sile business model you do incur risk of key revication due to licensing infringements.
                                  Also, indirectly such behaviour affects the devs - just keep all these consequences in mind when buying from them.

      In my opinion, both games are really old now. They are hard to get through, unless you have a high tolerance for old games.

      It might be better to read a story summary or something instead.

          I played out for the first time only last year and i personally found the graphics to be pretty good maxed out. But the gameplay and combat a bit dated. The quests having you doing a lot of running back and forth. And the story is very political - without giving you a whole lot of reasons to care who ends up ruling.

          Just my opinion, I personally didn't love it.

      I'm a Witcher games fan from when the first game was released and I cannot enjoy playing that first game anymore. Plus some characters are portrayed differently in Witcher 2 + 3.

      Witcher 2, however, uses the same engine as Witcher 3. It is in no way as polished as The Witcher 3, but the storytelling and the atmosphere is definitely there, and it doesn't look too bad. Witcher 2 feels like a continuation of another story while Witcher 3 does a good job of feeling like a brand new story despite continuing on from The Witcher 2.

        I'm probably in minority for loving Witcher 1 more than Witcher 2. It took me a while to get used to the gameplay but after that I felt playing it on keyboard was reasonably fine. For Witcher 2 though, I always felt a bit difficult playing it on either keyboard or gamepad. That was probably the reason that although I finished my first playthrough, I stopped middleway in trying to complete the different path. I am playing Witcher 3 now on gamepad and the control feels much more polished than Witcher 2.

        Story wise, I did feel Witcher 2 had a great opening but somehow lost part of its steam at a certain point probably due to budget and time. Nevertheless, all three are classic in story telling and well worth the time and effort.

        My advice to new players is not to dismiss Witcher 1 simply based on others' opinion. It is often in discount for less than $1 (or even free sometimes) on GOG and certainly worth it if you find it entertaining.

      If you want the most out of the game, then yes you should. It's nice to be able to recognise some characters from the previous game, some of your decisions also carry over too (They aren't anything that impacts witcher 3 meaningfully). Games aren't just about the story.

      Unlike witcher 3, the first 2 games are linear so it shouldnt take long to finish like witcher 3. Although the 2nd game branches out drastically 1/3 of the way through so it might be worth playing it a second time. The first witcher game is very dated at this point and some people might not be able to sit through it, but the second one holds up very well. I even started playing the 2nd witcher again 3 weeks ago.

      But you don't really need to. Most people who got into this franchise started off at witcher 3 and absolutely loved it

      Playing the first 2 will definitely increase your enjoyment of the 3rd. However W1 is difficult to get into for alot of people given its age. W2 however still holds up well and for the price of afew dollars offers great value. The combat is less refined but the storyline is arguably better then 3s. As far as W3s expansions go.. Yes, they are top notch.

        To be honest I think Witcher 3 is showing its age now too. I tried to get into it again recently and I just couldn't gel with it.

          Witcher 3 showing it's age!? What standards are you holding it up to… The graphics is pretty incredible if you ask me

    Ok so I'm a bit of a noob with gaming but got this and played it for an hour or so - looked fantastic but I felt like the learning curve for all the symbols, card games etc (can't remember all the specifics as this was a few months ago) were going to take me too much time to get the hang of right now. I want to give it another go, did you guys watch youtube tutorials or something?

    •  

      I've just started as well level 9 now.

      I did watch bit of tutorial as in for combats and where the hidden swords are.

      The card game is way more complicated right now. I wil learn it later on but I heard you shouldn't overlook it.

      Such a good game

      It's an RPG. You need to get about 5-8 hours in and then you will be comfortable with everything and hooked deep. Its not a casual game.

      From memory you don't need to change your symbol often and will most likely rely on the force push and shield. Later in the game you will find certain symbols more useful in different situations.

      •  

        It was that first 5-8 hours that I couldn't push through. What's the most efficient may to try and get up to speed? Youtube tutorials I assume. Will look for a few.

      I tried and failed twice to actually get into the game. As with you, I felt overwhelmed with everything there is.
      Even 80 hours in I still never use alchemy (though I should).

      Basically the only spells I really use are Quen (the protective shield) and Igni (the flame). The others have their uses, but I like to just run in with a barrier, spam quick attack and dodge when I need to and continue doing that.

      As for Gwent (the card game), I didn't really understand it at first but now I'm on the hunt for every card. It's a strategic game, and quite a fun mini-game.

      My advice is to just play the game, go through White Orchard and do all the quests there and by the time you have done that you should know the bare minimum to get you through the game.

      Also worth mentioning that you can easily get 100h out of the game before even touching the DLC.

      If you just want to breeze through the game and watch the story unfolds, i'd recommend playing on the easiest setting. Plenty of fun and dont have to worry about the gameplay mechanics.

    Playing this on Switch and loving it, even though I have a gaming PC, having such a huge portable world makes it more fun somehow.

    I did try to get into Witcher 3 on PC a while back and couldn't, mainly because there was a jankiness to the combat that put me off, coupled with what seemed like a steep learning curve for the world and mechanics made me think it wasn't worth it.

    But somehow I forgive the combat jank when playing on switch, and the learning curve really is not as steep as you first think. After just a few hours you really get the hang of everything.

      I had the same experience. Never finished it on the PC, and enjoyed every second of it on the Switch. Being able to play a AAA quality game like this on the train was great fun.

    Newbie here. Do you have to subscribe to their monhtly fee to purchase this?

    I still think this game looks amazing on max settings

    These are the all time lowest prices for these items.

    It has been this price basically once a month for the last 3 months or so.
    November, October and September. Yet this one is far more popular than either of those, I wonder why? Maybe the increased interest due to the show or something?

    A great game, and best to look into mods for certain aspects of the game that can be improved. The Witcher 3 HD Reworked Project is definitely one of my most recommended mods, barely any performance hit for pretty substantial visual improvements.

    •  

      witcher 3 is probably the most annoying game to mod, if you're only using one or two mods then yeah it's fine but once you start adding lots of qol/texture packs it becomes such a time sink and you probably wont be able to use most of them because of conflicts. shame cdpr lied about proper mod support but it came down to licensing i think

    •  

      Hm, the show must be pretty good if all these votes are coming because of that….perhaps I should start watching the show…..where does the show adapt from? The first game or does it have its own original storyline completely separate or in the same world as the games?

  •  

    Bought it, cheers

    Newbie here. Is this COG like STEAM, have to log in there first if you want to play games?

    •  

      No, their games are DRM-free. You can download their games. Using the Galaxy launcher is optional.

    I only played up to the Bloody Baron questline as I got sidetracked with other stuff but damn, even just that bit of gameplay is worth the price.

    The world is just so ridiculously interesting.

    Question:

    I’ve never played Witcher or Skyrim games and want to know which to start with? I love the Fallout series/aesthetic and so I figure Skyrim would be great, but then how long should I play that before moving on to play Witcher? Pretty keen to watch the Netflix series but want to put a solid 20-30 hours in first.

    •  

      Watch the Netflix series then play Witcher 3?

    •  

      Well Skyrim is the older game so I would probably suggest start with that as you might find it harder to appreciate if you start with Witcher3. But if you enjoy Fallout and Bethesda's approach to its games which is; here's a big open world sandbox, go explore and create your own story, then you'll probably still enjoy Skyrim. Witcher is a very different style of game and the only real comparison is that they're both open world fantasy rpgs. Witcher is much more narrative focused and while you can certainly still run off and explore, its the characters and story that pulls you through the game.

    How to buy the expansion pack ? In game ?

  • +1 vote

    I took up this offer, i've already installed the base game and now the expansion pack is installing as "The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt - GOTY Edition".

    Should i be opening the base game to begin with? I would have thought the expansion pack would be just that, not a separate 'game' in GOG Galaxy.

    •  

      would like to know this as well

    • +1 vote

      You can install the expansion over the base game, it's listed somewhere under the base game. So if you don't want the GOTY install, then install the base game and expansions separately.

      The GOTY edition is just a free addition that GOG gives you if you own all the expansion + base game.

      •  

        Is there any point to having both or is it just taking up room on my hard drive?

        •  

          I can only guess a convenient all in one installer so you don't have to install the base game and then the two expansions afterwards, or it could include better graphics like higher res textures and whatnot, similar to a definitive and other similar game of the year edition that some games sell as? Or maybe something else…..

    Showing as $39.99 for me? Am I missing something or has this expired?

    •  

      I added
      The Witcher® 3: Wild Hunt and the expansion pass. The cart shows the total of the two $11.99 + $9.99, not just $9.99.
