I thought Warframe required a lot of grinding and such if you didn't want to pay anything?

 

If you just want to play to have fun, aka not worry about unlocking a new warframe or craft a new weapon/whatever - then the grind isn't a problem I'd guess. But if you want to level up your dude, and unlock/craft new warframes etc, then it can be pretty grindy. But I think that's the point of the game, since it is F2P after all :D

I've looked around and most people seem happy with them, one or two complaints and others complain about getting wrong key but then instantly given right key.

 

Apparently they buy in bulk from 3rd world countries for next to nothing.

 

I might buy something cheap to test them out, it's definitely very enticing considering it's much cheaper than anywhere else.

Yeah i ended up getting COD BO II off one of those key sites cheap enough, also picked up Trine, Saints Row, TF 2 and Counter Strike and GTA IV but cant get that working.

 

Now i could do with a good racer, i loved Forza Horizon on my XBOX haven't come across anything similar yet.

The keys are cheaper due to being retail/outside zone keys.

 

Steam will honour them, it's a bit of a dick move from a business sense, so if you come across a game you want from Steam and it's only a few pounds more to buy through steam, I would >.<

 

Other than that, it's a good way to go :)

 

If you're playing on steam, also check out DotA 2. It's a great game. Not a shooter or driver obviously, but good if you want an hour long play session etc :)

UpLift, be careful with some Ru keys tho. Some require english patches to be manually applied after every public game patch if you don't want to play everything in Russian, there are not alot of games like that but enough to drive you crazy.

Yeah i've been avoiding the Russian keys and always comparing to Steam.. they are much cheaper but i couldn't be bothered with messing about.

 

I found this article regarding one of the sites and seems legit: http://www.pcgamer.c...ed/cjs-cd-keys/
