amazon or steam, or maybe ebay! but buy combined operatios! its better to have the complete package. and there are also 2 DLC's worth buying.

just eat vegetables for 2 weeks and you have saved enough. it is worth it! and healthy too :)

tuna additionally is filling as well! try it. its frickin' awesome ;)

I'd wait for the Sprocket deals to arrive. Normally they do -50% at various times around the year.

If you're a starving college student I assume you would have a relatively shitty computer then? (or was all your food money spend on electronics)

If spec'd properly, Arma2 will run quite well on what passes for a relatively shitty computer these days.

So over a month ago I found out about Day-Z but I never ended up buying Arma 2: CO as I didn't want to spend $30. I now really want to play it again and am mad at myself for not buying it on Amazon for $15 when it was on sale the other day... So what I'm asking is does anyone know where I can find Arma II: CO for preferably $15 or below? I really want to play Arma 2/Day-z! :eek:

Hi all :),

I want to buy ARMA X- Anniversary Edition but a Box Pack (collection of DVDs) as I won't be able to afford to download 20+gigs (as I am in India; internet bandwidth here is damn expensive :x ).

so, I am unable to find the best deal.. the one on Bohemia's online store looked as if it is an online download purchase. (which probably it is for sure).

I have also posted 2 emails regarding the same to Bohemia's support also (just to be sure). I would really like to buy the game (after enjoying countless hours on Arma 2: Free. Can somebody please guide me to a link from where I can do the same? I came across this here and this one too but as both of these differ by their "Region" dependent distribution copies so I am unsure which to buy. (I am wondering if I get the "Asia" version then all the good HD stuff would be blocked/stripped out :'( ) Please suggest :)

Also I want to support the devs for providing us with this wonderful game (no doubt I am going to buy ARMA: III also.. infact I am right now looking to pre-order it :D if you guys have come across any legit website doing so then pls tell me now I want to get it before I actually order the ARMA X: Anniversary edition and run out of all greens $$$ :D )

Thanks & Regards,

I moved your post here as there are numerous existing threads about where to buy.

What about Zest in Thailand? https://www.zest.co.th/content/view/id/10964/

Hi,

wow..thanks for moving my post here :)

regarding Zest.. I guess its a digital download as the discs section in the product description is just having a " - " dash* ? i.e none?

Anyways I have fired n email to their customer support lets see how they respond. Is this merchant legit? O_o

Thanks & Regards,

Hi,

I tried registering an account with ZEST but was unable to login.. the system said wrong password? but i had entered it correct!

I tried resetting my password, tried with it.. but then again wrong password! :/ I guess they don't like/want international customers. I tried creating 2 separate accounts but to no avail :(. Anyone please any alternative to ZEST but with similar price range? (only box pack versions) ?

Yes Zest are legitimate and as far as I'm aware are happy with international customers, I have contacted them in the past and they've responded to my email so maybe just wait a little longer, as far as I could see from the advert that was the boxed version (well I assumed it was!) we shall keep looking ;)

Whenever I click on buy, the login page comes up. And I have tried creating an account for 3 separate times. Everytime whenever I try to log in it says please contact our customer care at ## no. or email them, sometimes it says wrong password!? You have # attempts left after that your account will be blocked.

Why is it so hard for them to make a proper functioning online ordering system? Is it some kind of banking system? Even EA doesn't have this much of tighter security workaround :p

I have tried calling them up. the number basically isn't reachable nor is there any reply from them :(

Can you do me a favor placebo? Can you create an account for me? I can give you my email address. Rest of the details like the postal address can be changed after creating the account I suppose? So that shouldn't be a problem. :) Just fill up arbitrary info. on the postal address etc.

maybe?

No offence but many hundreds of people have found it functioning quite well this weekend alone ;)

But we shall try to create an account ourselves for you, PM me your name/address/email and we'll see what we can do, if nothing else I'll try creating the account for you from my PC :)

Hey :),

That did it. Now I figured out what went wrong last time..I was trying to login using the form given on the right hand side of the website.

Well, now I have a new small prob. I want to pay using my credit/debit card. So has anyone done that before on ZEST ? I mean there were some instructions written in Thai on the website when I clicked on pay and selected VISA/CREDIT CARD:

I translated them using translate.google.com and it din't really made sense to me :| They want to me to send some kind of confirmation.

Please help, I am this* close for my Arma X pack :D

UPDATE: Just ordered it. I was able to complete my payment after googling out how to proceed with the payment thingy on ZEST :D

Thanks a lot..for holding my hand through the process :)

Thanks & Regards,
