Yeah i downloaded it. Btw you can use the Key (from D2D) in Steam, i just did that their server max my 50mbits connection so it's faster there.

Played 4 hours, no crash whatsoever, running at locked 60fps with 8xMSAA, 16xAF (with Vsych on). don't know if i'll have a CTD, but in Fallout 3, i had 2 or 3 in like 60hours of gameplay on my rig. I mean it crashed on the 360 version too so.

So far no trouble with the PC version..

Well you require Steam to play it, so one would assume it would work on Steam....

Odd I swore I read something saying Impulse and D2D were boycotting games that used steam as their DRM. Owell, think I'll be able to get over it.

D2D gave up on trying to snuff Steam ages ago. GFW and Impulse on the other hand continue to make a go of it.

I appreciate what GFW and Impulse are doing. If they let Steam have the monopoly, who knows what shit they'll pull. Like if AMD shut down and all that's left is Intel and Nvidia, it's gonna be disasterous for consumers.
