Like I said I'm pissed with Steam

Steam is Fucking Lame So as most of you may not know I am from the United Kingdom and FEAR 2 Is not released officially until tomorrow lucky for me I bought a copy of it off www.play.com and it arrived this morning. Only to my surprise its a steam game (What the fuck since when is FEAR games steam) and because its not released yet I get this shitty message when I try to install it. :( Can you guys think of any ways to get around this? Photobucket Oh and no FEAR 2 section so I put it in FEAR :(

    Can't you wait a day? Patience my man. I don't think there's a work around readily available.

    You make me think though, this might happen with my Dawn of War II. Game.co.uks pre-orders come a day early. Damnit. I kinda hope it's not solely on steam.

    It's not steams fault you can't buy it, it's the company who made it's fault.

    Steam can't control where to sell things, it's up to the game makers

    Try to get a friend in the US (who you trust completely) to activate it for you, and download it onto their computer as well. Then, get them to send you the program files over the internet (Torrent, Fileshack ect.) and place it in your program files and it SHOULD work. Hopefully? Just a thought :X

    Play seems to have forgotten to mention it's a Steam game, but then most online retailers don't mention it.

    But you'll just have to wait till tomorrow.

    Companies are putting their games on steam as a means to help prevent/reduce piracy.

    Ummm... There is one way. Download a Steam Emulator. I'm not sure if I'm allowed to say such things here, but it will work. One way to get it is.... Ugh, I know I can't say that.....

    However, as the others have said, waiting until tomorrow is the safest, most legit way to do it.

    Sorry bro :/
    Spiral out, keep going
