      Closing Vendors Only section   06/11/2017

      The Vendors Only section on IVG was started at a time when games retail and e-commerce were pretty much non-existent in India. But with the growing popularity of e-commerce players like Amazon and Flipkart and specialist retailers like Games the Shop, we don't feel a section like this serves much purpose anymore. And even small and new businesses now have easy access to payment gateways and social media to promote their businesses. We've also been noticing a lack of activity in the section over the last year or too. That's not even taking into consideration all the times we've allowed access to vendors who either don't stay in business long enough, or use IVG to commit fraud and cheat members.   So in view of the above, we've decided to close the Vendors Only section from June 30. Starting July, the section will be removed, along with all the threads and posts within it. All users currently part of the IVG Authorised Vendor group, will be moved to the Members group.   That brings us to the topic of how to approach/deal with businesses on IVG.   IVG was started as a community that is for gamers first, so we don't want to see the forums flooded with retailers, rental services, etc using this community for free advertising. So as things stand, retailers will not be allowed to sell their products or promote their businesses on IVG.   Members who come across useful services or retailers that the rest of IVG ought to know about can use the Game Deals section to start a discussion, but this is not to be used by businesses themselves. IVG Staff will close any topics that come across as advertising.   If any would like to use the forums to talk about their business, they would need permission from admins first (you can write to staff via the Contact Us link at the bottom of the forums).

At least you're gonna get to play it. You would have never got your hands on the retail copy. And if you did, it wouldn't be the Enhanced Edition, so you'd be looking at a 5 GB download even after buying retail.

Everything appears fine to you in your perfect world.....Have you ever owned a 512kbps connection?

And why is a retail copy hard to find? (has this game not released in India)?

Apart from that, guess I have one less reason to whine, that I had to pay only 4.95 for the game and not 10$ (when everyone was cursing me for not getting it :lol: ). Well, they say "Fortune favors the brave!" :P

Eventhough I hate steam, that's a good point. But I don't know of any friend's nearby who own a copy over steam. Plus the extra 5 bucks of course.

There are atleast 4 people i know of who have it installed (incl me) who could have couriered it to you

 

It would have taken 2 days maxinstead the 100+ days u will spend downloading it via ur 512kb connection

 

 

Guess the genius didn't think about this now, did he??

yeah.....it's gonna be a looooooooong download :/

But hey, since I have a huge backlog, I'll have it downloading in the background when I play......that's the best way I can think of

BTW 1% download complete :clap3:

And I may not have as much time as you may.

GTA IV Complete Edition is 10$ on D2D.

 

Drakensang:The River of Time is listed for 20$ (Comes to 16$ after the 20% coupon they have posted on their site). Is the game any good?

Spin says River Of Time it's worth it. I've played Drakensang: The Dark Eye and I can say that it's a great old-school party-based RPG. Its quite stat heavy and can get a bit tricky at times though
