Recently I bought the Resident Evil 2 remake. I was hoping to enjoy it last weekend, but something terrifying got in the way. You see I bought the physical copy for PC, which for some reason is cheaper than the digital, go figure. But, it comes with a price. Instead of getting a Steam key as part of the package you get a different key. Let me clarify- you get a key to get a Steam key. A keyception if you will.
But the "service" that handles the process, Nobox, is a total nightmare. Firstly it took literally hours to create an accout, because I had to wait for the account confirmation mail. I created the account in the afternoon, said mail came after midnight. After that I actually managed to finish the process of making an account. Then came the worst part. When I entered the get-the-steam-key key, it worked, but after several tries I couldn't get that steam key. It was supposed to be sent to my email. Well, I figured it's probably the same thing as the registration email, just wait few hours it'll be there.
Well, after almost 2 days and multiple retries I finally managed to squeeze the key out. I was ready to write a very angry email to whoever created that abomination of a system when I came up with one last idea. I used my second email account and it worked. The mail with the key was sent literally within seconds. Why it didn't work with my main one, I have no clue. Nevertheless, it taught me to never use Nobox ever again. But even though my plan to play RE2 during the weekend has backfired spectacularly, there is silver lining as I had a plan B, I also bought Metro Exodus, which is a phenomenal game and I was actually able to play it.
