Buying games from unauthorized re-sellers always carries a risk since you can't be certain of the origin of the keys they sell. Often it turns out they were purchased using stolen credit cards for example and then they might all get blacklisted.
If you're looking for decent prices, you can try IsThereAnyDeal which only lists official sellers. Also, the r/GameDeals sub might be a good place to start.
Excuse the quality and cropping, these are all just in Battleborn preview - If I find a better way to do these, I'll update the album.
I'll finish the skin names+unlock requirement descriptions when I have time, but I work in 40 minutes, so I'm done for now.
Also, I'll be adding any skins acquired through gear boxes as I discover them. (Currently, the only earned one I have one for is Miko).
And do note that they are going to be adding more.
I'm streaming Battleborn at 10PM PST tonight on twitch - If there's anything you want to see/know, feel free to ask me and I'll try to address that tonight. (Normally, I hate plugging myself, but I'm seeing a lot of questions around, and would like to help answer any)
Went looking for more info because I was pretty sure GMG was legit and they are.
They are contracted, approved retail partners with the developers.
So yea like gamestop but for digital games on PC without all the ripping you off.
I have a friend I played Halo with and he would always always always kick our friend group's collective ass, and would wreck online as well, I remember asking him if there's something I'm missing, he said the same thing, he doesn't push for kills because the risk is too great, if there are multiple viable targets, dying for 10 seconds means he's missing out on killing the others in the map which might have been perfectly easy to get, instead of sticking it out in a long and bloody engagement. Said that survival comes first, THEN kills.
Feels so counterintuitive, but ever since that conversation, I always try and be a bit more careful in shooters.
In Battleborn, it's much the same--one of the most important skills you pick up is learning to quickly recognize what fights you can or can't win.
"Thus it is in war the victorious strategist only seeks battle after the victory has been won, whereas he who is destined to defeat first fights and afterwards looks for victory."

Huh, it actually costs less for the box version then getting a download key (<$10).
here's the page on amazon. This is from Amazon itself so it should be legit. Guess they just want to get rid of the box version?
Some people from Gearbox said on the PAX stream that it's and I quote "a bird guy with a gun and some....".
Gearbox team starts at 05:50
Concept art talk starts at 58:35.
Weird, you're definitely looking in the wrong place. Until yesterday it was cheaper, but right now BB is $17 directly from amazon with prime.
Download SoftEther VPN. Install. Start it. Double-click "VPN Gate Public VPN Relay Servers", pick some Australian server. Wait. Start Steam. Click Play. Wait for the game to unpack. Play.
As much as I hate to drag them into it, here's an example of how one of the titans of the industry handles it:
Note that they say "make sure you're ready for deployment on May 24" right at the top, yet, you know, half the world had it available on the 23rd. Because you know. That's how simultaneity works with time zones. Some people had to be up at 3:00 AM to see the launch. Some got it at 4:00 PM the previous day.
Enter code: APR20 for 20% off.
Total price: $60 for digital deluxe.
I don't recommend G2A as their practices are extremely shady and they are not an official redistributor of steam keys like greenmangaming and humble bundle are, meaning you could be buying a key that was bought with a stolen credit card and possibly have it revoked from your steam account.
It won't be a timed demo. The updated section of this article https://kotaku.com/source-battleborn-is-going-free-to-play-soon-1787235168.
I don't know why Randy thinks they can wait a few more months with this game. Just pull the trigger with the new dlc
... :( Sadly, that's not the case right now. Do you know if there are other links or specific dates where that happens? Or if I can be notified about it? Not used to shopping on Amazon, apologies.
This is the link I found: https://www.amazon.com/Battleborn-Season-Pass-Online-Game/dp/B01D5EHAPU
You could use a VPN service to unlock the game early but you'd need to continue playing over the VPN until the game releases in your region. If you stop using the VPN steam will lock the game again. I did that release day to play when Europe had unlocked the game a few hours before NA. All the stuff on your account will be fine so you can grind some gear in story missions if the ping is too bad for PvP.
Private Internet Access is a good one but there are a bunch out there.
Edit: just make sure to change your steam download region to wherever you VPN to so you join that region's matchmaking
Worked, unlocking the game right now on Steam. I'm in germany, connected to Australia with a free account at FlyVPN.
I set up the VPN connection in the windows settings instead of using a client. Those clients never work for me.
It is decrypted, patched and started up, though when I disable the VPN connection I can't get into the game. As I feared, the European servers are not up yet. You can not connect to them.
Now connected to the servers via VPN, not a pleasant experience but I can do the Prologue now.
You asked for examples of lots to unlock. This is the post match challenge screen. It shows how far along on various challenges you are. As you see on this one I'm 850k/1000k on this challenge. That's a lot of shards collected! If you also notice the scroll bar goes down a LONG ways so there is an imperial crap ton (that's way more then a metric crap ton) of challenges.
Edit - Buildables in this game cost 200, 300, 400, or 500 for reference.

You're wrong according to the dictionary, which is an actual source. Feel free to tell me how the dictionary is wrong.
Literally the only thing I disagreed with you on was the use of that word, and look at how defensive you are. One word Toby, one single word. :(
The first answer here may help you then. It's for Windows 7, but probably still applies.
It is also possible you just have to much other stuff open, if it is complaining that you don't have enough free ram, try closing all your other programs first, especially browsers which can easily take up a gig of ram.
I'm not even sure those keys were really stolen, since you can only buy stuff for your account - tbh more often then not it sounds more like a publisher being salty that people bought cheap keys from another region/channel, especially when it's a "big" company. same way CDPR was bitching about GMG when they bought keys from another distributor or the drama with sniper 3 keys.
as a company you'd need to be transparent about it, and most companies hardly are - the internet outrage machine does the rest.
So no worries :D

In case you haven't managed o solve your issue yet.
Could you check if your Tessellation mode and shader Cache is on 'AMD optimized' in the global gaming settings?
It might be that PhysX and tessellation of Nvidia is causing unneeded strain.
On a sidenote, could you do a furmark benchemark to see what FPS your are getting on the default test? (1280x720 / 8X MSAA).
It gives you a lot of shortcuts, such as being able to copy tags across videos, view statistics regarding your tags and how they "rank", as well as giving you a word count on your tags and descriptions.
That's about all I know of it, since those are the only things I use it for. It has other uses, but just the tag and description work alone makes it worth the download.
And 5 below has it for 5 dollars, as well as a few other places.
Price isn't really an issue, it's the fact that it's now dead, and OPs cost more money. Don't have much time to play games, so while 5 dollars is normally pennies for a good game, when it's a dead game that requires more costs per operation, I'd rather look elsewhere
I just use this mic paired with these headphones and I love them when playing on my PC.
Actually you have shared the non-deluxe version that is only the core game. This is the digital deluxe version. You may want to change post to not confuse anyone :)
I got him for about £10 on Amazon. You wrote dollars so my first guess is you're American.
I see the action figure now. That is pricey. I think I'll leave off that one for now.
The Pop ain't as detailed, but it's nice enough.
