    It still works. Got deathmatch and lost coast. Saved $5 but technically $100 since lost coast can only be gotten in a bundle.

    Seeing as Lost Coast is more of a tech demo rather than an actual game I'd say you haven't saved anything at all. That $100 pack you supposedly didn't have to buy actually contains games and not just tech demos.

    I know it's a lighting demo ,but the only way to get it was in that pack. It still saves people money for deathmatch anyways.

    It don't work for me. I already have an account, and when it asks if you already have Steam installed and select yes, it just sits there. Meh...no big loss, really.

    This is very old, I got these back in august 2008. I remember they said it was a temporary action back then, so it's kind of surprising you can still get these.

    I really hope Valve keeps doing this kind of stuff. They really get people to install Steam this way. I would have never used it if this discount hadn't shown up so they would never have sold anything to me.

    Well technically you get Source SDK for just $5 if you actually pay for Half-life 2 Deathmatch so while you save cash on the game you do miss out on the SDK. Said SDK is usually used for one of the numerous good Half-life 2 mods.

    Worked for me. I've had my account since around when Portal came out. I used the ATI Radeon though.
    Doesn't the SDK come with some of the other games?

    Yep, too bad it doesn't come with this. It'd be an easy and free way to get access to Source Engine mods.

    I already got this (Nvidia Package).
    A friend told me about it so we could play Half-Life 2: Deathmatch. [​IMG]

    I think the engine in AS compared to some of the other games is modified a bit.

    Wow this is great. It still works for me lol.

    It wasn't working for me at first but after exiting steam and clicking on the link it worked for me. Nice find, even if it's a tad bit late [​IMG]

    Same here. I'm even more surprised to find this offer extends to mobile variants of these cards. Regardless of whether or not its old, its still good that the offer is still going.

    No, you saved $30. You get Lost Coast in the Orange Box, too.

    Nope, Alien Swarm uses a modified version of the Source Engine Source SDK dammit (noticed I had it wrong after posting [​IMG]), therefore, it's not compatible with mods.
