    Looks like Steam are giving away Brothers In Arms - Road to Hill 30 free with any pre-order of the new Brothers In Arms - Hells Highway. LINK to the Steam deal.

    What I want to know is, is Road to Hill 30 worth a play through?? I'm pretty sure I'll be getting Hells Highway at some stage anyway, so this deal is sounding pretty sweet.

    Vets, whatcha reckon?

    Quite probably because Steam are the perfect international online distribution company - and forget that "international" means more than Hawaii. Too often these deals are US only - no idea why, I only know that we get left behind once more.

    I have seen deals in the recent past where old games are relased free for general use*... US only. Seems that the way they get them free is with additional advertising, not in-game as such, but strapped onto the start. If the advertising campaign is exclusively for a US audience, they get nothing from non-US gamers.

    That, I can sort of understand. This however, is just narrow minded crap.
