I can't think of anything from them I would want on Steam, sadly.

I expect CnC4 to be 33 or 50% off at some point, probably the weekend. I don't even know if it is worth that though, honestly, and I would want the boxed version anyway.

Crysis on Steam no longer contains x64 .exes. So there is no way to run 64 bit version from Steam version. Also activation limits.. I hit mine and I'm not able to play anymore

Buyer beware with this one on Steam. Go buy retail.

Are you serious? How many times can you install it? I was under the impression that with STEAM it doesn't matter how many times you install it, it will work. Must have been mistaken. Too bad because I just purchased the Crysis package from them. I do own the boxed version also. Bummer.

I'm hoping to get all C&C series on Steam if they put it up. But yeah, most EA games I have except Dragon Age Origins which is other game I'd like to get.

You should be able to ask for more activations from EA (not Steam). All versions of Warhead even retail have SecuROM activation limits (5 IIRC).

I own both retail and it's kind of funny cause Warhead is installed, but the 32 bit isn't activated anymore (lost one to a windows error when I was still running Vista64) but I just tried running the 64bit warhead exe and it works fine with an invalid activation lol.

I was thinking about picking it up on steam just so installs would be easier, but I think I'll just skip it and reinstall Crysis and get a no cd crack.

I bought retail Crysis Maximum Edition and it has EA's 5 activation limits. I forgot to uninstall/deactivate once when I reinstalled my machine and then I lost another activation slot for each when my degraded array died. Prior and overlapping problems with Mass Effect (1) has left me with only 2 activation slots there. :I

They should give you more with an email indefinitely as long as you can prove ownership with a key or whatever. Not sure why people act like you can run out of activations.

I wouldn't take Crysis if they were giving it away for free. What an unoptimized POS that is...

I'm sorry, I know a lot of people here love it and all, but no thanks.

That being said I feel like they are shooting their load on the first day. What other games are they going to have sales on?
