maybe i'll buy DoW2. Anyone buy from THQ before, looks like they have the same EA nonsense with downloads only be available for a certain amount of time.

I enjoyed playing Split Second more than Blur. We had a bit of a discussion about it here: Blur- Best racing game of the year?

A quick google search lead me here: GameSpot Forums - PC & Mac Games - THQ 75% off sale where folks post that they were able to add the Keys from some games directly to Steam, avoiding the limited download time BS.

anyone know if the King Arthur game is worth picking up from Steam? I dont know anything about it but am a fan of the Arthurian legends so I think I will at least get the 2 dollar one, question is is the rest of the pack worth while getting as well?

I am ashamed my google-foo did not lead me to that. Well if I can add DoW2 to steam I think I'll grab it and the expansion.

Oh, and Red Alert 3 is 75% off on impulse ($4.99) Impulse Driven : Command and Conquer - Red Alert 3 : Instant Digital Download Purchasing, Product Information, Screenshots, Previews, and more...

Edit: Well it seems I can't buy DoW2 as they are restricted by my billing country. Every other digital download service is available in Canada except THQ it seems.

Well for whatever reason THQ refunded me, though I still have access to the game.

I had no idea AVP was GFWL. SO glad I never bought it. :\

Edit: ALL DoW Titles (not including Retribution Pre-Order) are 50% Off on Steam. And I just had a friend buy the Gold Edition a few days ago, lol.
