Also, Valve has stated they would provide some sort of patch to allow you to play your steam games without requiring a connection to steam servers. Whether this happens or not, we will hopefully never know.

I must say though I have been finding myself buying more from D2D lately, those 20% off coupons are great for pre orders or other recently released titles.
I think the time limit has changed. I sure hope it has, I am in need of a format and bought BC2 from EA DM .

A bunch of preorders are on sale for 25% again at D2D like Battlefield 3, Brink (out tomorrow!), Dirt 3, Rage, etc.

Direct2Drive

Not sure if that was their weekend promo since the link says "weekend"? Code still works though! Damn, I seem to be buying more often from D2D lately with these kind of sales on newer games/preorders.

Considering all of my issues lately with Steam's absolutely ridiculous customer support, I may go to D2D or another service.

Oh really, what happened? Yea D2D is great I've bought BF3 for 25% off, just bought Brink 25% off and would've totally bought DN:F if it were part of this summer sale! Steam has some good sales sometimes but I've never seen 25% off a pre-order before, anywhere. Have not had to deal with their customer service, however...
