Hi there, I'd like to join too.
I'm going to play Dead rising 2 - which is already an playing appreciated GA I was able to enter by whitelist.
Currently I have an offset of 3 hours due to idling.
Hi excelite! You're welcome to join, playing Dead Rising 2 will do fine. Indeed you have an idling time of 3.5 hours, but that's fine. Please comment again when you have finished the game. :)
sry I just can't get it to start up, tried about every suggestion that is available in their discussion group and other sites. (this will go to my backlock though).
I have to either switch game or come back another time. my alternative would be Borderlands:
since it doesn't contain the time that is currently on it was due to testing, before I offer it in here
Playing Borderlands will be fine too. The 0.3 hours on record is alright, since you didn't achieved any achievement. Please comment again once you've finished the game.
Finally I was able to complete it with 100%, but those grinding achievements were a pain...
Wow, congratulations on finished the game 100%. :) Please request to join the group here and I'll approve it as soon as I'll see it (or give me a bump after a while).
cool, thanks & request sent
I would like to join by the second option if at all possible! I've got a few games GA's hanging back that I'm waiting for the right moment to set up and this seems like a rather good group to post them in!
Been curious about this group since my friend joining it and telling me all about it.
Hi MonochromeMagpie! You're welcome to join, giving away something you like to see getting played will do fine. Membership request approved, I'm curious to see what it will be. :)
Tewam said I should join, dunno why, but he said it, blame him.
I guess, I would try it with option 1.
I would play Jones on fire (not played yet, only 3.6 hours of card idle)
see ya in a while
Hi Nariel! You're very welcome to join, playing Jones on fire will do fine. Just as a note, you indeed have 3.6 hours on record due idling. Please comment again once you've finished playing the game. :)
just finished with it. god that game was boring :D
Wow, but you finished it 100%, congratulations! Invitation was send, welcome to the group. :)
everything less is not finished!
Hey! I have been playing Oxenfree I won in the group, but cannot continue due to a known bug, which has been described here http://steamcommunity.com/app/388880/discussions/0/1479857071260089558/
What do I do?
Thanks for reporting, looking at your playtime of over 5 hours you've played it enough already, so I've approved the giveaway. Good that you've reported it nevertheless, I hope the developers will fix it soon so you can complete the game. :)
Thank you! I sincerely hope they will fix it!
I'd like to join, and I'll go with Option #2 because why not.
Hi CalculonJones! That's a good reason :P And I like your wise cat avatar. ^^ Membership request approved, I'm curious to see what game you'll give away. :)
Hi, I'd like to join. I just finished earthlock, blade kitten and bionic commando so next game I thing I will play
Eventide: Slavic Fable on weekend.
Hi fullystormer! You're welcome to join, playing Eventide: Slavic Fable will do fine. :) Please comment again once you've finished playing it.
just finished it both main and additional story :D
Nice :) Membership request approved, welcome to the group!
I'm got a question... I've seen this group before and wanted to apply but then I completely forgot... Now I've just finished Fortix and got 100% of achievemtns after hours of nerves and frustration. Could I apply with that or do I have to complete any other game?
Hope it's ok to ask...
Edit. Eventhough I would love it to be accepted since it was so frustrating and HARD to achieve and that I've spent so much time, I do realise it doesn't meet requirements. That's why I'm going with Option 1 and I'm choosin Gunman Clive which I won here in the past. I'm starting to play the game within minutes. Wish me luck! :)
Hi pampuch721! Indeed it has to be a game you've not already started playing, but playing Gunman Clive will do fine. Just as a note: you have 2.6 hours on record already (probably due idling). Please comment again once you've finished playing it. :)
Just for your information, I've never idled the game. You commented about 3 hours after I did so everything is alright I think since I said I'm starting the game within minutes :)
Now I've just completed the game. I got the achievements that show I completed the game and made a screenshot too. I've just applied. Hope I'm good to go! Please let me know.
Agreed, membership request approved. Welcome to the group. :)
Thank you very much! :)
BTW Can I add you on Steam to ask few questions, please?
Sure, feel free to add me. :)
Added just now. I wanted to do it earlier but I forgot what questions I had and now I got some new ones :)
I'm going to start play a game I recently won, hopefully turns out well, accidentally already sent the request to join before that tho so just ignore that for a bit, I'll re-request when I'm done with this stepp
Hi Szzzzzx! You're welcome to join, but please comment the name of the game before you start playing it. If you don't like the game after you started playing it, you are free to change it by commenting another game. :)
I'll do so when I'm able to, right now have downloaded Human: Fall Flat so will try thatt
Playing Human: Fall Flat will do fine. Just as a note: you have 3.5 hours on record due idling. Please comment again once you've finished the game. :)
Hi, so erm, I couldn't do it in the end cuz of many other reasons that would just end up as excuses.... Instead, my friend told me about this gib and I really really want the chance to try out the game. I'm going to ask if I could join the group again, this time with Option 2 of giving gibs to be played firstt, I had previously sent a request to join the group, if possible could I join thankss
Hi, so sorry about the delay, but yeah, I'll like to request (again) to join. Option 1 would be me trying to play Tomb Raider, (which I have 4 hours on idle), and also Option 2 for some unbundles that I probably won't play but would like others to try out. I tried to request to join again for that nier gib but missed it but wanna try to join again in case another crazy AAA game appears so I may get the shot at it. Thanks, gon start playing Tomb Raider noww
I'd like to join if possible, I could play DreadOut for example(or something else). I got idle on it because of the cards.
Hi FlyMeToTheMoon! You're welcome to join, but please pick a game you didn't play before. DreadOut you've already played on August, 31 (unlocked an achievement).
Looks like I have no achievements unlocked in Odallus: The Dark Call, Attractio and 'n Verlore Verstand.
Correct, playing Odallus: The Dark Call (4.2 hours on record), Attractio or 'n Verlore Verstand will all be fine. :) Please check in again once you finished one of them.
This is taking a bit longer especially since I haven't played any NES games lately and I've gotten a bit rusty from all the modern easy games. Having flashbacks from Ninja Gaiden's last boss even.
You have all the time in the world for your introduction play! ^^ Just check in when you've finished it. :)
I've slain the last boss.
Congratulations! I hope you liked the game. Please request to join the group here and I'll approve it as soon as I see it (or give me a comment when you did).
I've sent a request. I liked it a lot, reminded me of the old games I used to play on my NES and how difficult they can be at times.
Approved, welcome to the group! ^^
Honestly I havent won one single game on SG that i'd play....just shovelware.
Out of curiosity. Why enter for them then?
A Boy and His Blob?
any of the HOG games that they have won are worthy of playing - seriously sad that they won 86 items and considered them all shovelware !
And yet you have entered and won 86 items on steamgifts - why did you bother if you think they are all shovelware?
To answer all your questions
A Leech - I get it :) - but perhaps the wrong thread to admit that in - I purposefully do not enter games from this thread and/or group as I cannot agree to their commitments - hence I feel no problem commenting on how odd your comments were considering the thread you were posting it in!
Whats weirder is that you consisting on criticizing my choices but arrogance is the trend i guess
I am sorry to say that I have no idea what 'consisting on criticizing my choices means' - but you hop on that hate train and ride it all the way to nastyville :P
I'd like to join, I would play Lost Grimoires 2: Shard of Mystery. The 1,5 hours are idled.
