It seems that D2D has a lot of racing games on sale:



**Use coupon code marchmadness to take 20% off of your order. (Thanks JokerWild)**



Also the daily deal for today is Mount & Blade: Warband for $7.50.
(Can be registered on Steam) Unfortunately it appears that the keys are in a different format than Steam accepts for Warband.

Can these versions of NFS: Shift and NFS: Hot Pursuit be registered on EA Download Manager?

I bought Shift from D2D in 2009 and it registered with EADM just fine. I can't comment on Hot Pursuit since I haven't picked it up yet.

Here's the list of Games and Game Key Formats that can be registered on Steam.

Don't look like any of those D2D has on sale right now are on the list.

They have the official deal page up now with even more racing games.

And with the coupon code NFS HP drops to $11.96. I may have to cave and pick it up.

I'm not really into racing games but that is quite a deal on NFS HP. Does any one know how the PC port is? I'd probably be using a controller for the actual game, but are the menus navigable via mouse, are there graphics options, that kind of thing?

Yup, both can be plugged right into EADM. :)

i picked up mount and blade, but the code is in the format XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX, whereas steam requires that it be in the format XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX. Hopefully there's a second key I get somewhere in the installation process, cuz as of now it looks like the copies D2D are selling are not registerable on Steam.

Ouch that sucks. I thought it would register on Steam since it is on the Retail CD Keys list. I've never owned a game that was on that list but wouldn't activate on Steam. Sorry if I mislead anyone.

There is a key converter on their forums but it only seems to convert steam keys to non-steam keys.

I might have to bite on the Warband deal. Not sure what the big draw of registering it on Steam is, but $7.50 vs. $30 is a no brainer for me.

Thanks for posting this. With that coupon, I'm going to have to think about some of these games.

For anyone looking at GTR Evolution, STCC, or Race 07, this isn't a good price. In fact, they're $2 more expensive than Steam's regular price, which is itself way too high (it's still higher than the retail price was at launch!)

Amazon has GTR Evolution for $10, and it's the same as the "complete" edition on D2D: GTR evolution (expansion) + Race07 (full base game). They also have Race On for $8, which is better than the STCC "complete edition": Race On (expansion) + STCC (expansion) + Race07 (full base game). Those aren't sale prices, if anything I think GTR evolution has gone up a few dollars over the past year. But you could still buy both of these packs from amazon and get the full game and all 3 expansions for less than the price of Race 07 alone from D2D.

Those amazon versions all register on steam (it's required for multiplayer, so I assume D2D's version needs to be registered on Steam for multiplayer too). You type in the one key from the box and it gives you all the parts in the complete edition. If you buy both expansion packs, you lose out on your second copy of Race 07 when registering on Steam.

I know Race On isn't listed on Steam's CD Key list, but SimBin is really trying to milk the Race07 engine with expansion packs and I think Valve just got sick of having to list them all. Just last week SimBin put out a free expansion to Race07 which registers on steam, and they seem to have started selling a STCC2 (swedish touring cars) expansion for steam just a few hours ago.

Thanks OP and code poster. Been staying away from PC purchases cos I've got so many games, but I've been wanting HP since it came out and 12$ was too good to pass up.

It's showing as 29.99$ on ea's store, so -60% will make it 12$, same as D2D price.

I decided to pick up Hot Pursuit but unfortunately D2D and EA Download Managers are going very slowly.

Also D2D has started charging sales tax since I last bought a game from them. Not sure if this is true in other states though.

Yep I get flak with tax too here in AZ.

I thinking of using the 20% on the already 10% pre-order of the Black Ops map pack but since the game runs off dedicated servers I'm not too worried about finding servers that don't run the new map rotations. I mostly play on 24/7 Array servers anyway.

Dang, I want a good kart racer for the PC, but Sonic & SEGA is not a fun game. (My experience with the demo was lackluster.)

Is there a good weapons-based kart racer on the PC (Steam/D2D), or should I stick with Blur?
