    Always nice to see more games on Steam, but all i can think of is "meh" at those prices :(

    I think you've posted the pre-discount prices there. :)

    Also worth a mention is this weekend's dead - FEAR 2 for £12.49 and the recent DLC for £2.99. Rather tempted by that.

    Already bought Mirror's Edge retail copy recently due to getting fedup waiting for EA to allow UK sales on Steam. Bit annoying, but at least I can grab Dead Space from the service now.

    I don't see how any of them could use DRM as it is applied through steam so really only have to install it once and it's on your account forever? And doesn't need to check the disc.

    Just bought and downloading Command and Conquer 3. Been waiting for this to be added to steam for ages.

    Don't own the game but it should work fine on a ATI card.

    Shame about the prices for Crysis, I really want to get those but not at £18 each! The Maximum Edition was £12 or so the other day at several online retailers, should have grabbed it then.

    Unfortunately some games such as Crysis Warhead do still have the limited installs enabled. I'm just aware that RA3 is one of the few games that had it removed in steam and am hoping the same is in effecdt with other EA titles.

    Well let's hope so. :)

    Edit - Tummy would that mean I could activate mass effect through steam and not have to use the disc?

    Edit2 - Suppose I could just try.

    Trying to buy mass effect and dead space via steam but it wont finalise it. Stuck with the "There has been an internal error initializing your transaction. Please contact support for assistance." error -.-

    Try buying it in your browser via the steam store ;)

    I'll be getting Mass Effect this coming weekend I think, Despite my hate for EA.

    Bonza! Mass Effect and Dead Space time ahoy!

    EDIT: I'm somewhat dubious of this whole affair though. Why have there been no new releases to the catalogue since June this year? Have EA not published anything over the summer?
