That's not the point. I already paid $80 and have gotten nothing extra over the standard edition besides HL:S, which honestly, who cares? It was a half-assed attempt at a bonus feature.

Because I didn't know it was going to suck as much as it does and I got 20% off.

Why did you buy two copies? Wanted the shirt or the Prima book sampler?

i bought one through steam so i could review it thoroughly and entirely for the mag i moonlight for (i got reimbursed, but still got to keep it) and i got the CE coz i didn't wanna open it. i thought it would be a true CE if it was unopened, so years down the track i could sell it for a small bundle. But the talk of DOD2 got me interested, so i opened it, and set up the account. Then i found out that DOD2 is coming to Steam downloaded Gold editions only.

I have the retail collector's edition and DoD:Source is under "Coming Soon". I'm assuming that I'll be able to play it once it comes out. If not, then that's too bad. I'm not looking forward to it anyway. I'd rather play something actually new like Brothers in Arms.
