    Hard copies are readily available from alot of retailers. The only reason it's not on Steam is because of a licensing issue with a song....apparently the band kicked up a fuss.

    I dont get why the band would kick up a fuss if they allowed the company to put their song in the game in the first place.

    Surely it can't be that hard to replace a track so that it can be sold on steam.

    I might just get it for that money... Was fairly disappointed by the demo though.

    I bought it anyway even though demo was useless on keyboard (though i was driving without any helpers). Basically just for the sake of hearing the roaring car engines. The sound in Shift series is just incredible. I miss that in Hot Pursuit 2010 even though some cars sound nice.

    Looks like I will add it to my collection then. I love the Chrome Engine anyways, so can't go wrong adding another title using it.

    A game like Fallout takes lots of hours, it's a great game, but with Skyrim so soon, don't think I personally would have the time for both titles, and with a new engine, I would rather just play Skyrim.

    well they are different worlds. my game choice almost entirely depends on my mood at the time i sit down. post-apocalyptic shoot em up is a different mood than slow-paced fantasy exploration.

    That's why i suck as a mp team-mate. I could play 15 hours of battlefield, and then the next day pick up some old or obscure series like europa universalis. the fact that everyone else is playing BF and it just came out means nothing... i'm in my own world :)

    I had to grab Alpha Protocol, I regretted not getting it at last year's steam xmas sale for 5 bucks...low and behold it's on for 2 bucks...worth every freaking penny imho! Between this, my rekindled love for Borderlands GoTY and Dead Island, I am a damn happy gamer!

    Check out the Total War Mega Pack.

    Am I missing something or is there something wrong with the math?

    If each game is at 50% then how come the total package says you save 66% :confused:

    2 different sales.

    50% each or 66% off the package. if you add the 50% each prices up, it's still well over the $17 for the pack.

    $17 for every total war except shogun 1&2? great deal imo
