    Michigan game tax must be super expensive if it kills a $3 deal ;)

    Seems like with shipping they wouldn't be making anything on this deal...maybe even losing money.

    wouldn't let me check out. Live chat was super unhelpful.

    I couldn't get checked out unless I used IE. It would get through the payment screen and then hang on the order confirmation screen when using chrome.

    I bit. First physical game I've purchased since the Orange Box. Thanks OP.

    Great price. I was about to buy this and thought about the fact I would be buying a physical copy of a game that I really don't want to find a place for.

    Backed out. I wish it was digital.

    I think it's also activates on Steam, so you can just get the code from the box then toss it.

    "The Darkness II CD Keys in this format: 1AB2C-D3FGH-456I7"

    So is this game any good? I've had it sitting around in my backlog but I haven't been able to set aside time to play it.

    Just curious, can anyone confirm whether there is a Steam code in the box with this one?

    Arrived today. It is identified as a Limited Edition with exclusive content and it requires the Steam client to activate.

    Nice deal for everyone who jumped on it!
