          They never even linked to Steam at all in any way. This has become a common Shacknews thing and it's fucking stupid

            im guessing since they are now owned by a competitor that also sells games, they dont wanna help anyone get to steam easier. still kinda a lame move tho.

            Looking forward to the natural conclusion of this..

            Today a company released a new game for a certain platform. The company, who are famous for releasing this type of game, hoped that their new game would beat their previous game's record for sales. The game, which lets you take control of a character at a place, is famous for that thing that happens. Over a certain number of man-hours were put into the game, which has gone on sale for a certain amount of money. A person for the company said "We are delighted this game has been released and has sold a certain number of copies". Regardless of whether the game is successful or not, there will be some DLC anyway.

      Anyone know if I can buy one of the developers collections and gift out some of the games (while keeping others for myself)?

        Does not work that way.

        typically, no you can't.

        very unfortunate; there have been a bunch of deals I would love to split with friends, but aren't good enough to buy just for myself.

        Only if you already own a copy of one of the games

          Only if it specifically states that on the store page for that bundle deal.

      I wish Steam had a way to batch process keys you want to redeem. Damn Darksiders II DLC codes.
