I just signed up last night for the yearly package, and though I did it just for UruLive, I found myself having a ball on Gametap. I haven't played 'Bust-a-Move' in years. (And yeah, the ol' reflexes aren't what they used to be, but I was never queen of the bubblepop anyway.) :wink:

Anyone with a long history of gaming is going to have a big smile on their face when they see some of the oldies. But they also have things like "FarCry" which is a fairly recent and critically acclaimed FPS.

It's an interesting service - I think UruLive has found an excellent home.

Your subscription plan doesn't start right away. You have to wait until your next Gametap billing cycle. Just print your receipt you get at the end and you should be fine.


That makes a lot of sense, but the person at the toll-free number today told me that my subscription had been cancelled. :shock: She said to reactivate it on the web site, but there is no evidence on the web site that I'm not an active member. I'm at work, but I'll log in to Gametap when I get home and see what happens.

Glad I saw this thread! I just re-subscribed at the annual rate myself.

I just logged into Gametap and played a game, so I'm not cancelled. I certainly hope the subscription change actually goes into effect when this month is up.

Just wanted to make Canadian users of Gametap aware that you will be getting significantly less content (games and TV shows) than U.S. users.

See my post here: http://forums.adventuregamers.com/showp ... stcount=12

I'm a big supporter of Gametap (and I live in the U.S.), but I think Canadian users deserve to know this information before they decide whether or not to sign up.

But of course they should still sign up, if only for Uru Live!! :D

Sadly, it looks like there's no Spelunx for Canadians... :(

No, I'm not a Canadian, but it's still :( ...

The FAQ about this that Legolas copied to the Adventure gamers forum DOES say, however, that they will be attempting to add these in the future... :)

Funny, I'm Canadian, and I played Spelunx.

As far as the games go, according to GameTaps website, it appears that only the products offered by Sierra Entertainment are currently unavailable in Canada. Which is a big shame; I'm a huge fan of the Quest games. (:

It's possible Spelunx was added recently and not removed from the list.

Anyway, if I was Canadian I would be angry about not having hardly anything on Gametap TV, including no Sam and Max animated series. What is with that Canadian law about no more than 49 videos? Sounds really pointless to me.

I can't seem to sign up. Whenever I try it says "error with the input," but is not kind enough to tell me exactly what problem it's having or what input is bothering it. I'll try again tomorrow and call if it still doesn't work.

I will subscribe to this...

I signed up today because it was such a good deal. How can you lose at that price? It's basically the same as buying one game.

Anyway, I love the old arcade games! I'm not crazy about the download times for the other games.

It gave me chills seeing the promo for URU Live coming this holiday season!!!!
:D :D :D :D

I can't get GameTap to install for the life of me.


*sigh*


Another hour with tech support.
