I would make the purchase but why did it have to be a PC download outside of STEAM? :(

What are the pro's and con's of purchasing via Digital River instead of Steam? Can I re-download it if I re-install Windows? Can it show up in my Steam games list so I can use the Steam overlay?

I would have, but I already have a bunch of THQ games. This download will activate on steam.

I received an error when I submitted my credit card info. I then check my Bank of America account online and it showed 2 charges. Wtf? I emailed customer service, they better reimburse me. I don't need an extra key.

That's a steal for one of the best shooters that has come out in the last few years.

If I buy it gives me a key that I can enter into Steam? If that's the case I'll definitely pick it up.

It gave me a "download" button- no key yet. I'm assuming it just downloads it. After which you can "import" it to your Steam games list to use the Steam overlay while playing.

Looking forward to trying this game after all I've heard about it. :D

no key?

no key?

Well- not yet, it's still down loading.

If it's like Steam then it probably wont give me one- steam never does, at least not "visibly". All that is handled "behind-the-scenes" so to speak.

Anyhow- wont be able to give it a go till after I get in from work. :(

If you go into the support tab on the THQ store website, you can put in your order number and password. Once that's done it will show you the product key and you can take that key and activate it with steam. You don't need to mess with digital river at all.

At least that's how it was with DOW II Chaos Rising.

This.

The default install will activate steam and then ask for the key there anyway.

Thanks guys. Bought it even though I likely will only ever play it as a benchmark whenever I upgrade. (nana2) :headexplode:

Sucks...it's $49.99 now. What a ripoff.

I'll wait for a Steam sale on this one, hopefully I can get it for cheap.

From what I've read this is a great game. I just don't like zombie/post apocalyptic stuff.
