Issue solved! Woo! (was able to purchase thanks to some helpful links from the community)


Hi everyone,

Well, I'm new here and am wondering/hoping if anyone could possibly gift me the Blood and Gore DLC on steam.

Currently, I live in Taiwan and am unable to purchase DLC for the game BUT I've heard that gifting works.....I can only hope!

If someone could do this, you would be my savior as I have been banging my head over how to get hold of this via steam.

my steam user name is the same as here: gurdenc

if you cannot, thank you for reading and well, game on! later peeps!

not a great way to introduce yourself, id suggest deleting the content of your post and accept that people will neg rep you for what is essentially begging.

Also VPN might work
i wasn't trying to money hungry or rude or anything -- just eager I guess. I tried a private VPN but it did not work since my visa is issued in Taiwan (I work here, but from the States).

Tried setting up a different user name on steam and then using paypal even but that also failed..
Check if you can buy the game from here:

If there's no "Buy" button for you on this page, then Steam would probably reject the code anyway.

This would be the right thread for your request.

Begging in other threads is considered rude and not welcome. If you post in the gifting thread, please be aware that people probably won't give you anything, because you are a new member that just registered and never posted before. I would suggest to become part of the community, before you ask for gifts.

I really was not attempting to come off as rude -- so if I have, then I'm sorry for that. Thanks for other link as well! You guys seem like a nice community so I will try to learn the ropes before jumping the gun in the future.

HOWEVER, some GOOD news -- thank you PSYRINGE for the gamer's gate info. I was able to purchase the dlc via that site and then activate it on steam (no download occurred?) and I believe it is working.

Thank you guys for the input and patience with me on this.

Glad it worked out for you.

GOG is a great community but some member (im not innocent of it) can be a bit quirky. Like all communities best thing is to take part in discussions and all that jazz, get to know folks (either ignore or insult tinyE thats what we mainly do)
Never mind. PaterAlf already said what I wanted to tell you.

This reminds me of someone who called last year and asked me to tell them about another B&B down the road and actually had the nerve to ask me if I could call them and check availability. I don't think the OP meant any harm but I don't think that person who called did either. I guess we should just learn to think before we do certain things.

true enough but my B and B is impossible to get to (or so i thought). I tend to be pretty direct and don't beat around the bush so I figured why not just ask straight up. I had spent the past week just attempting to try different methods to obtain the DLC and none of it worked. Google initially brought me to this site. It's frustrating to want to obtain a product but being limited just by location alone -- despite having the funds, etc.

anyways, I appreciate the comments and help with my steamDLC issue and ways to go about it. Take care all!
