    How exactly does D2D work? Does it just download installation files or what?

    I heard it was like Steam. They have there own client and it downloads into a directory and then you play.

    Just like a normal download ziped\rared. Unless you use the download manager which you select a download location and it unzips\unrars it for you.


    Then you install it and activate it. I have had issue's with activations but a email solves that and they renew them.

    I just picked up Riddick Dark Athena, Bioshock and Civ 4 for $15. Yeah! This does belong in the hot deals section, but only a mod from this section can move it.

    How do I get the Direct2Drive patch for Bioshock? I can't find it.

    EDIT: Found it, sorry first time using that site.

    Here are a whole bunch of patches if anyone is looking. http://www.direct2drive.com/patches/

    Saints negs are mostly from those that want it to be just like GTAIV, which it isn't. It's supposed to be pretty much mindless fun, not gritty realism.

    Saints row 2 is actually pretty fun for £5 it does have some bugs but they arent as bad as people are making out well worth the money i paid

    oh and also you can register the serial on steam when d2d gives it you

    I got a lil tired of the original one ( which you get with this btw ) but it's been fun to play and worth $5 for sure.

    I'm more of a sim type gamer but it's been a nice change :). Wifes enjoyed it too which is some thing good.
