Default Re: Retail or Steam? How are you getting Warhead?

I had it preordered but cancelled by order as soon as I found out it was coming to steam, now I have it preordered on steam. You may think it's cool to have the box and manual and all in the first 3 days, but after a few months, you'll be glad to just have it on steam. That's my experience with it. Only exception of course is if there is a collectors edition with extras discs etc.

I don't think there is any, preload when it launches, which imo is bad practice for digital distribution.

Already preordered on Steam, that's one of the few recent games that Steam sells in Europe
