        Yeah, unless some miracle happened, they ran out of keys to generate and tie into Steam.

        I want to play that game again. I have the CDs somewhere, but I just don't know where.

          Not that I doubt you but is it that they ran out of keys to sell or keys that will work?

          i.e., if all the keys that will work are in some database somewhere and a key bought from D2D isn't on that list then yeah it won't work. But if the keys that will work just have to fit some algorithm and the keys from D2D fit that algorithm because 2K or whoever generated them then it should work.

          Someone should contact GeorgeB3DR or dahanese to see...

        Also, it will require much better hardware than it looks like it should need. Won't run right on my g/f's laptop (no support for integrated video cards), and it gets choppy on my buddy and my pc's as well.

        Supposedly they have a 5 man team, 2 of which are programmers, and they haven't put time into optimization (so that they could get more features).

          indeed. You need a pretty good gaming laptop to run it well and on my desktop I can't 'max it out' without it taking a hit on fps (you kinda need smooth fps to survive this game).

      Sacrifice is also on sale at GOG ($2.99). It's an awesome game that still holds up today.

      $10 for AC1 & AC2 together is an amazing value. There is no reason not to get those games (unless not owning them on Steam really bugs you).

            With a game like BFBC2 not having Steam wasn't much a big issue for me (got a retail copy from a friend at EA). Since I'm on voice chat with the people I play with anyways, not being able to send Steam IMs didn't really bother me much. Plus, you can always just add it as a non-Steam app and launch it through Steam anyways.

              My biggest issue was that you can't auto login if your password has certain special characters. It was kind of like Mirror's Edge where you couldn't even log in with those special characters.
