Very tempting.

I wish it was on Steam, but $12.50 for that game is pretty awesome.


If I downloaded it, I'd have to burn it to a DVD immediately, so that I would maintain a copy of the game. I'm really hesitant to download it from someone that wants you to pay for "extended download service"

Yah. I stopped using EA Downloader when they introduced that system. ::(:

Seems like this is NA only. ::(:

You can use the "Serial Key" that is given to you from THQ for Metro 2033 and use the "Activate a Product on Steam" option in the Steam application under the header "Games" which will tie the game to your Steam account forever thus eliminating any kind of need for an "extended download service" as you will be able to download and delete it anytime you want through Steam.

Just pulled the trigger. Waiting for my confirmation email.

If I can activate the key on steam, that's a no-brainer.

My confirmation email took about an hour, just to let you know, but once I received it I entered the "Serial Key" in Steam and was good to go.

Yuck. :(

Still a good deal though. I'm on a 9800 GTX+ currently, so I won't get the full eye candy until I get my 5870 back from RMA on wednesday.

I got the Dawn of War 2 Chaos Rising expansion. Not bad for $7.50 :). I just registered the key they sent me with steam it's it's all good. It also took me an hour or so to get the email with serial number.

AFAIK
Supreme Commander 2
Dawn of War 2
Dawn of War 2 - Chaos Rising Expansion
Metro 2033

Keys are all accepted on steam.

I think Saint's Row 2 also but I am not sure.

Got my Metro 2033 key! Downloading it on Steam as we speak.

Nice find! :D

Bought Metro 2033, successfully activated in Steam. Thanks for the heads up. :D

I just ran the install as soon as it finished and by default it used steam to install it. Entered my key and it's now tied to my Steam account.

Great deal. :D

Could someone here buy a Metro for me if I paypals the money? I didn't know the keys would work in steam.
