Me too, I redid my game key it said I already did it for this account asked me if I want a desktop shortcut yes, so I have dirt2 on my desktop and in the steam folder, It's downloading the game I think now because my modem is blinking constantly. It also dissapeared from steam games list, maybe it will be back once it's downloaded, Wierd stuff.

What happened with the release? So it it out for you guys or what?

Steam is really bad with multi region releases. Borderlands for me said it was a few hours away, but as the AU release was a few more days away it jumped back once the US time came and went. ::

well read my post

here is what happened

1) game disapeared from "my game list" simply vanished
2) game started downloading, but for some weird reason steam doesn't know that its downloading
3) game will officially "unlock" on the 8th
4) but if you run the dirt2.exe you can play it before time

LOL

I would read the posts, but it's far easier for you to post a summary. Please continue this process in the future. Thanks.
