Question: How is it vivendi's fault when valve could just arbitrarily add the game to every HL2 owners steam "my games" list if they wanted to?

In case you haven't noticed, they just did that with blue shift, and that even applied to people who just owned regular HL1 and nothing else.

I can see it in my "coming soon" games list and I have CE.

I am assuming this means we are supposed to get DOD:S when it drops.

It's in mine too, and I own the bare minimal package. The "coming soon" section is more or less mostly an advertisement section of your steam games list (the "now available" section is purely for advertisement.) Remember when HL2 was about a year or so away from release, it was in the "coming soon" list for some time, even if you haven't even purchased the game.

EDIT: Kinda funny how they are reacting to this on the steam forums: http://forums.steampowered.com/forum...5&pagenumber=1

Basically it seems that the oppinion of most people on the steam forums is that if you bought the CE, you were stupid for buying it and you didn't pay for DoD:S. Got to love fanboyism.

Yes. You will be able to buy it via steam.

I think I saw somewhere a while back that it was going to be like $10 or something.

If you got one of those vouchers that came with an ATI card what are you entitled to? I gave my brother one a few months back but he never used the license. I might be able to get it back...

I understand the disappointment of CE owners.. but a few things:

1) valve hates vivendi. they arent going to add more to retail packages than they needed to by contract. they wanted to lure people to use steam so vivendi would make less -- hence getting DOD with the silver/gold packages.

2) it was no secret what games were included with each version. those of us who knew we wanted DOD for SURE included with our purchase went silver or gold.

3) you can still buy DOD:S as an upgrade to your current account (the price seems reasonable) or you can buy the more expenseive CS/DOD retail pack.

i think at this point a lot of people are mad because valve "gives away" a lot of stuff with their games that people expect DOD:S to be free. well unfortunately not this time... :-\

I agree. If you bought the ridiculous CE retail pack then it's your own fault.

we had no way of knowing we'd be f**ked over. i assumed it had to include most of what the silver package did as they were identical in price when i bought it.

Thats the problem, you assumed. Did you look at the box, did it mention DOD:S? Where as the Gold and Silver packages specifically said DOD:S. There was information about the packages and what they were going to contian. I knew since the day they annouced the packages that DOD:S was not going to be part of the Bronze or the retail packages.
