Yes, I bought it yesterday on the chance it would activate on Steam, and it did. Already d/l'ed and played it.


Is it worth getting -- I don't see any reviews or forums on steam...?

Does Darksiders activate on Steam? I know it's on the list, but wanted to make sure before I purchased it. Thanks

Ended up buying Chaos rising, Don't think it will hit cheaper than $5 this year.

how is dawn of war 2? im a huge fan of rts games. been playing age of empires, starcraft, warcraft, company of heroes since i can remember.

i watched a review saying that it isnt based around building a base, but squads. and that there are weapon/gear drops, which it thought was really cool. how long is the campaign, and im asuming i can do skirmishes vs ai, or is it only campaign and then online play?

and and is chaos rising the expansion to it?

Yeah its pretty much an ok campaign with two new factions that are meh. Overall, meh. Dark Crusade and the original are good to go though.

Its much closer to Company of Heroes imo so if you like that one you will like this one. The campaign with sidemissions I think is over 12 hours, but it depends on how you play. A lot of the sidemissions repeat and can sometimes be monotonous. You can do skirmishes offline against the CPU. It also has Last Stand which was pretty cool but its online only though. And yes Chaos Rising is the expansion.

Did anyone run into a payment authorization failed from it? I called my CC and I have no lock on my card, so it seems to be THQ store's end.

On the fence for METRO 2033, reviews weren't great but not bad either. It looks like a S.T.A.L.K.E.R./F.E.A.R. hybrid.... also didn't I see it on a STEAM sale not too long ago?
P.S. I love STEAM because I don't have to hunt down all the patches for my games every time I reinstall!

Good deal; picked up Chaos Rising for my copy of DoW that I already had on Steam.

I can recommend this game. I didn't care much for STALKER's open world. Metro 2033 is a linear game and has some incredible environmental detail and effects. It's kinda a horror shooter though in some regards so be sure you like shooting up monsters before buying. You also need a decent PC to enjoy all the effects.

I'm running a 6 core amd, 5770 1gb, and 8 gigs of ram, so I should be ok...;)

also, do they send me the activation code so I can just activate it on STEAM and download it from STEAM?

Yeah, it's very demanding. You can scale it a ll back of course but it does to your PC what Crysis did when it first came out ... that is, made you wish you had a better one. :wall:

I might finally pick up Soulstorm at $5. The only Dawn of War game/expansion I don't own. Heard kinda bad things about the balance and stability, but hell. I'm a huge Dawn of War fan, and I've always wanted to try it and see it for myself. Can try stomping through the Soulstorm campaign before Retribution releases.

Does anyone know how PC downloads from THQ work with retail/brick & mortar purchases of a game in a series?

Say I have copy of Company of Heroes and Company of Heroes: Opposing Fronts. How will a PC download copy of Company of Heroes: Tales of Valor work with those two games?

Thinking about getting Company of Heroes: Tales of Valor and Warhammer 40K: Soulstorm, but would like all have them to sync together.

Just picked up DoW 2 and Chaos Rising. Amazing effin' deal. I was literally INCHES from buying both off of Steam for 50. I'll take 12.50 instead!
