Yeah, that's my big worry too. I'm holding off until I get some confirmation on this issue.

Very nice find.

I hate using D2D, but I may have to bite here.

I don't think this game had any drm, and d2d doesn't add their own drm
there is some difficulties playing online with games for windows live, I know the steam version needs or needed patching, but the single player shouldn't have a problem

this game is a blast to play, but again, if going into it purely for co-op, investigate if windows live is all working now.

it's a GFWL title, i got it on steam during its sale there, & steam is missing the patch (but you can trick the gfwl patcher to install to the steam folder & it works fine)

d2d tells you if there's drm in their games (usually.. for some reason i dont see tages 3 activations listed for riddick anymore)

i wouldnt worry about any 'drm' for RFG in particular

This is one of the top games of 09'. One of the few games that actually live up to a $60 price point. $5 is just insane.

That's an insane price for this great game! It was $10 in the Steam holiday sale, and I've already put 20 hours into it!

I have no idea what sort of DRM is on this title with D2D, but the fact it isn't marked as DRM-free suggests there is some of some sort. I think D2D often default to the same DRM as a boxed copy, but I don't know what that was.

But I'm pretty sure you can type the cd key into Impulse if you prefer that brand of DRM. It worked with the key from my steam copy.

Also be sure to get xliveless to remove GFWL from this game

Great post! I've only seen Giant Bomb's quickview of the game and it looked like a lot of fun. Does it maintain that same level of insane fun throughout the rest of the game?

I believe 360 and PC gamerpoints are separate. Giving such games a potential of 2000/2000, if not higher for those with DLC achievements.

Oh hell yes!!!

Dont worry about D2D, I have bought quite a few things from there, and all of them have activated on Steam, making it no different than buying from Steam itself.

Can anyone confirm if you can activate this on Steam?

No, it can't be activated on Steam. I think it can be activated on Impulse (Impulse accepted the key from a Steam copy, so D2D keys should be the same).

There aren't actually all that many Steam-activatable titles on D2D, you've probably been pretty lucky in your selection. You can of course add anything as a non-Steam game into Steam to get the overlay, etc. but you won't be able to download or install it through Steam.

This is pretty tempting but I think I'll wait for Steam to get down to this price.

Can anyone confirm it activates on impulse? Impulse is exactly like steam right? I had it for Demigod but don't have it installed right now.

Good catch. I'm going to wait for an inevitable steam sale too - now that they're doing midweek sales all the time now the chances are even better. If not, I'm sure it'll be around next Christmas.

This is a very good price, but D2D pissed me off so much last year during their anniversary sale where I went back and forth for their support for weeks, TRYING to buy games from them with no luck. I just don't want to give them any money any more.

I googled it and saw this link http://forums.stardock.com/366960 . I guess they don't have the steam keys so I'm not sure if D2D will work.

This game uses GFWL SSA (Yay no activation limits but its) bound to 1 gamer tag. I have heard that all versions can also be activated on impulse maybe it was only retail...
