I have found a disc copy for a "reasonable" price. But before I drop the cash, I'm hoping someone out there that has recently done this with a disc copy can provide some info. I have a PC but I only have 2 games for it (on Steam). So I am very, very new to all of this. I know the game will run fine, that's not a problem. But I have no clue how to go about making sure I properly earn the achievements through GFWL. Do I need to be in offline mode? I guess really any information that can be provided will be greatly appreciated as I'm not really sure where to begin with this. I have Windows 10. If you need any other info from me please let me know, and thank you for any help you can provide!

Refer to this thread for all the info: Can you earn achievements for this game if you buy it on Steam?

Any additional questions you have, I'll gladly answer.

Also, the two copies I'm watching on eBay are used, but the description mentions nothing about a key. I messaged the seller and they said it comes with a key. But I have no clue if the key will be valid. Does anyone on here have a copy for sale or know of any other places I could nab a copy? I'm really hoping to spend less than $50 for this.

I am almost certain the keys are one-use only. Either way I would risk it, your best bet is sadly just to hope an unopened copy shows up on ebay, which happens from time to time.

There's a guy on eBay in Poland with a sealed disc copy, but on the back is the Steam logo. I assume this would be a no go? It doesn't say GFWL anywhere

Yeah, that won't do you any good.

I'm also trying to buy one, and I'll try to buy a used one on amazon.co.uk for £20 I'm gonna risk it. Also they sell it new, but for £55 https://www.amazon.co.uk/Dark-Souls-Prepare-Die-DVD/dp/B007X...

It doesn't say GFWL anywhereJust a tip for the future, the only GFWL that has Steam on the box but will still contain GFWL is Dawn of War II. When you installed that one it installed both Steam and GFWL. Other than that if you see the Steam icon but no GFWL assume it won't work.
Looking to boost any MP achievements I don't have for any game I own.

I might grab one from the UK when I get some more cash. I'd rather not risk it with a used one. The guy on eBay said the code is "probably used." And he's asking $55 for it, so I'd rather spend a few bucks more for a sealed one.

Well it looks like I'm out of luck. The Amazon UK listings don't ship to the US... :(

I really love this game, but I don't want to spend 65€ just to get the achievements again... I guess I need some luck and find one on ebay or something, I still might grab the second handed one but I don't want to risk it...

The guy on eBay in the UK with the two copies said the codes "may have been used." There's no way I'm spending $60 (or $120 to try both) to have them both be duds since I won't be able to return them. Anyone in the UK willing to mail me one if I buy one from Amazon UK? wave

http://www.ebay.es/itm/PC-GAME-DVD-ROM-DARK-SOULS-PREPARE-TO... Found this one, I've contacted the guy on ebay and he says he haven't played the game before but he didn't get it factory new. It is 45€ and it is an special edition. Maybe I'm going to buy it, because he told me if the code was used I could return it. Btw he ships to USA, maybe you should take a look.
