i'm getting it DAY ONE fo sho! or preorder it. is there any bonuses for the preorder on steam besides it being 5 bucks cheaper?
1) The ease of use of Steam. Instant access with any machine connected to the internet.
2) Easy to backup your game files, so you DON'T have to re-download them every time.
3) Steam Cloud.
4) Non intrusive DRM (technically DRM, but its not as bad as say SecurROM?).
Not to mention the fact that this is a Valve game, period. So you'll HAVE to register it through Steam anyway. So all of the perks of using Steam (there's more, those are just my 4 favorites above)....you'll get those same perks if you buy retail or not. It won't matter, because you'll HAVE to use Steam to play it anyway
So yeah, save yourself the $5, and just by it direct from the person who made the game
