Default Red Faction mega deal on Steam

HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO KEEP SUPPORTING BOXED RETAIL WHEN YOU PULL THIS CRAP???

Ahem...

Pre-order Red Faction 3 on Steam and you get Red Faction and Red Faction 2 for free, right now, today.

You get the whole series, including a brand new game, for $40.

I can't prepurchase Red Faction Guerilla. Hooray for region restrictions! I can see the store page though but there's no add to cart button.

Hmmm... not supported doesn't mean not working, but it's still a scary notation for those wanting to play the game on new hardware.

I'll let you know how it works out when I get it, if no one else does.

71.79$ from Steam.

49.93$ same deal from Direct2Drive.

41.78$ including shipping from physical store (cdwow) excluding RF1+RF2.

37.60$ including shipping from cdwow if ordered at August 26, a 10% off day. Excluding RF1+RF2.

For me itīs hard to justify shopping at Steam

yes stock RF2 will not work on modern hardware, you need to find some mod to make it work.
