I did basically the same thing with HL2. Waited about two weeks after its release and bought it for half price on sale at fry's electronics. Steam is a ripoff because you always pay MSRP no matter what.

Last day to take advantage of this offer... To all who think 4-5 hours of gameplay isn't worth $20, go buy it for $8! (nana2)

Game runs great for me! Specs are in my sig.
I'm running at 1280x1024 2xAA 8xAF everything on high

Same thing applies with DOD:S as well. Its like $20 on steam, and some stores sell it for $10 IIRC.

It was $15 at Circuit City just a few minutes ago.

And I got Episode 1 for $3. :D Gotta love Reward Zone!

You pricematched at bestbuy?

I signed up for that reward zone thing but they ripped me off. Apparently they didn't setup my account correctly, so the upwards of $700 in purchases I made didn't count for anything, so I don't get any rebate at all. They didn't seem to notice it each time they scanned in my card everytime I bought something either.

Yeah, I got it price matched...and that sucks big time, man. :(

I ripped THEM off, though...a few years back, my boss wanted to get an HDTV, so I had a 15% off coupon from Reward Zone. I told him he could have/use it, but only if he took my card along and got them to scan it. He did, and it was like $3800.

So I got something like $125 in reward certificates. :D

It's definately worth $8.

I went ahead and picked it up even though I've beaten it already. I may want to play it again later and you can't really go wrong for $8. Went to circuit city to get a new universal remote, which they didn't have the one I was looking for, and they also didn't have any copies of episode one left. So I grabbed their ad and took it to bestbuy across the street, who had the remote I was looking for, and they pricematched it without checking if CC has it in stock (sometimes they do this.)

Hmm, really? I've never had them call over and check. It seems like it shouldn't matter because, at least in Milwaukee, there are three CCs I could go to, and barring that, I could always get it online. If they refused to price match because there was no stock, well, that would just be BS.

And I can't get past the elevator-in-the-dark part. :mad:
