    Regarding SR4 on Nuuvem, a forum post:
    Hello all,

    On behalf of Nuuvem's customer support, im authorized to provide you with the answers about Saints Row IV keys.
    Good morning.

    I was looking for a key for Saints Row IV and I found this product. I saw that the prices were amazing and wanted to know if I can pay by credit card even if not in Brazil. I am a resident in Spain. Another question I have is if I buy the game, then I can turn on my Steam or have a regional block?

    Sorry for writing in English.

    We're aware that most of our international community is having a big time wondering if the Saints Row key that we're providing will be regionally exclusive or not.

    In a first moment, the Saints Row IV pre-purchase rights that we sold until now, will, indeed, be redeemed as regional keys, but we've already taken action in order to protect the best interests and rights of our foreign users, so, soon after the game is launched we guarantee that all the foreign users that pre-purchased with us will receive a worldwide redeemable key.

    It is important to state though, that all the keys that will be sold AFTER the game launch, will be regionally blocked.

    If there is any question that remains unanswered please let us know.

    Best Regards
    Nuuvem Team

    Note also that the release date on the page has switched to the US release date, so it's unclear whether now is "after the game launch" and hence region blocked keys for anyone purchasing today on. People reporting support emails relay Nuuvem will get region free keys for people who preordered, but it could take until "next Friday," which is presumably this Friday, the original international release date, but who knows!

    Edit: Also from the sounds of it, Deep Silver didn't tell them in advance that they intended to use regional keys. Given the price benefits for foreigners, I wonder if the price of getting region open keys for SR4 preorders will be more stringent restrictions on where customers are buying from, like Greenman. Publishers do hate this sort of thing.

    Thanks for the heads up!

    Finally, the big game at E3 that I considered buying a next gen console for is coming to PC. So there goes that irrational need.

    i was about to post about that. the abiltity to join a game as an overwatcher on the tablet is really appealing and a neat concept if it works

    I'm not buying games to play anymore. I'm buying them as a means of vaccinating myself against gifting.

    Also important to note, it seems Deep Silver has caught on to regional price differences in regards to both Nuuvem/Brazil and Russia. The store page for SRIV used to (or maybe still does) state that copies bought in Russia can only be played/activated in Russia.

    I bought the humble bundle that had Mirror's Edge in it. I didn't like Mirror's edge on 360 when i played it. I asked in chat if anyone wanted the key, and someone reminded me that I didn't have it on my account. I had to activate it on my own account so someone else didn't hit me with it. :( These are rough times we're living in.

    I thought it was US, everywhere else not Russia, and Russia in terms of how keys were split up?

    There isn't really any point in banning someone who only signed up to message me and say that they skimmed all the keys. This at least gave me the impetus to chase up a solution to the problem. Hopefully we'll find something that you guys can use for when you give codes away in this thread.

    GAF has a pretty good setup for this, where everything's done through a bot via PMs. I'd try to describe it but it'd be easier to just link to their explanation:

    Seems like the ideal solution to me, as you can then use it to filter out any users that have only just signed up, have less than x number of posts or whatever.

    Thanks, I'll check that out. My thoughts are to have a clickable spoiler that logs and publically displays who clicked on it. That way if you take a key and don't leave a post everyone can see it.

    I don't post in here much because I don't really have the resources to do a lot of gifting and therefore feel very guilty whenever I receive a gift. I'm also generally terrified that someone will ask about a game they gifted me that I haven't played yet.

    Dear Steam thread... life sucks today. I need something really funny to play tonight or just goofy and over the top. I was told I either need to be willing to work until 9pm every night, essentially never seeing my wife and kid, or take a move to another position that I'd hate doing, or attempt to screw over a close friend and keep my current shift. Not to overshare in the stream thread but it's a horrible feeling and I just want something to pull me away for the night. I'm thinking Sam and Max... Any other suggestions?

    I have perpetual giftee guilt over this issue. No matter how much I want to, I can't possibly play everything I've been gifted. I just hope people who have gifted me things don't ever take it personally - I love every gift equally, even if I can't get to actually playing it until the year 2042...

    Sorry as hell to hear it. I had a job once with shitty employers who wouldn't fire people because they didn't want to deal with unemployment, so they just made your life a living fucking hell with constantly changing schedules and performance requirements until you quit. So I empathize. I hope you find a good way to deal with it.

    I'm not sure what game to suggest. Maybe DuckTales Remastered? It's nice and jovial and nostalgic.

    You definitely shouldn't feel any worse about that than all the rest of us do, and I have it on good authority that @tuxkamen frequently breaks into random crying jags when he looks at his library.
