Getting a Offline Game to play Online,PLEASE HELP!

First, thanks for reading this. I have recently bought a few games that are sold as "offline Only" and I have no problem with that except for one game. With those games I have no access to any online features that the game has to offer but I would like to access those features. Does anyone know if there is a way to turn these games from offline to online so that I might access these features? I have done more online searches that I can remember to find a solution with no success, so I figured I might try a forum. If you have any ideas that I might try I would be more then appreciative. Thanks so much for your time and have a great day.

  1. There are usually sold as "offline" games because they are bootlegged/cracked games. Solution is to buy a full/legitimate version of the game.

  3. That doesn't look legit at all, looks to me like they are selling bootlegged games, which again is likely why they don't work online. Still the answer stays the same buy the full legitimate version of the game if you want to play online.

  5. Yes after looking into it this isn't legit at all i'd stay as far away from it as possible. There are no separate CD-Keys for offline and online versions. I believe they are selling the cracked versions of the games which is illegal by the way. Do not buy games from this site.

    Yes I am starting to think youre right. This has got to freaked out. Did you check out the site? If so I appreciate it. I need to talk to this guy. Thanks for your response.

  7. Mega scamola. When the prices are a third of even the *gray market* key sellers, it's quite obviously a scam. I'm not sure what talking to the guy is going to accomplish. Call your credit card company and request they reverse the charges.

    Of course I checked the website, it's a huge scamfest. Many of the games with online functionality being sold as offline only, look at Battlefield 1, ME Andromeda, GR Wildlands etc. Multiplayer plays a key role in these games (okay not for ME but still) there is NO WAY in hell the developers would release an offline only version of their game and I can't even remember if I saw any developers doing so in the past ~20 years . Also look at the prices, not even grey market key selling sites like G2A, Kinguin etc. selling these games at such a low price.

    Take a look at Nier Automata, even if you buy it from a reseller it still costs around 32€ and thats probably the lowest price you could get the game, it is impossible for this scamhole dealscube to sell it for 12.99$. And this is true for all of the games. The prices are totally off you can literally get any game regardless of release date and MSRP for less than 15$. Thats just wrong. Also rule number 1: If a price is too good to be true, it's probably a scam.

    Just stay away from this, if you bought something get a refund (provided you can), rather go to allkeyshop.com (if you are okay with the whole grey market stuff) or just stick to buy directly from steam, origin, uplay, humblebundle, gog, greenmangaming etc.

  9. Get away from that site ASAP, massive scam and the guy is just selling you cracked/torrented games. Use something like g2a.com or gog for cheaper games than typical price, sucks you had to go through this, I feel for you.

    Going from a massive scammer to a very slightly less massive scammer.

    Unlike the lunchline at school, there is no free or reduced price lunch.
    These grey market key sellers are ALL scammers.

  13. I would just say go to G2A. They are the best site for getting games less than expensive. Also Humblebundle and GOG are pretty good for this. Good luck!
