great deal, Not my style of games but a good deal none the less.

the games are old but they are pretty good, company of heroes is one the best rts, i dont play warhammer tho. 4 gmaes for such a low price, have some heat.

Good deal - is you're just after Company of Heroes you can pick that up cheaper from most places, but apart from that you'd be hard pressed to find any of the other bits cheaper (and in stock).

COH is awsome never played opposing front tho or the other exp pack

Managed to talk my girlfriend through buying ToV (tales of Valor) for me as shes in the US atm. So managed to get it for £9. Was holding off buying it. In fact I ordered it from play for 18£ then sent it back on release day when I read the Relic forums. 9£ is well worth it, considering it also means that I can play CoH through steam with it.

Not bad. Could have been much better though seeing as these are old titles now that the sequels have been released.

Dawn of war 2 is still 10 quid on play.com, instock.

Prefer to buy my games than rent them, tbh, but voted hot for price.

steam is an online store for purchasing, its not a rental company. You own the right to play the game once you pay and you don't get any wasteful dvd and packaging that you then have to find a place to keep it. It is a good idea.
Many people, myself included, hated steam when it first came out. Most of the bugs have been ironed out and now it is a useful application for managing your games.

With all the limited activation ******** around there's not much difference between steam and retail box anymore, assuming you're implying Steam will one day steal all your registered games and vomit in your hamper.

Thanks for the deal Cuddy! It has been featured on ]Dealspwn, a blog in the Hotukdeals community.

Actually he's right. Technically you don't buy games from Steam you rent them for an unspecified period which Valve are free to end at any time of their choosing. It's all in the terms and conditions you agree to with each rental you pay for.

This deal isn't actually that good, it's just another case of Steam cutting it's horribly high standard prices to match what you can get elsewhere. The Dawn of War games are available regularly for less than £10 and you can get Comapny of Heroes and both expansion packs for the price Steam is charging for the Tales of Valor expansion alone. Not only that but if you buy the disc versions once you're done with them you can sell/trade them for something else once you're done.

There's no DRM though to mess up your DVD drive and your burning software and your other games. I've had no end of trouble with Securom messing up my system, I'm happy to use Steam if it avoids using that garbage. Five games for this price, has to be hot!

If they reserve the right to take the game away, then I don't see how you can possibly own anything, not even a 'right to play'.

Rights can be surrendered, but they can't be taken away at a whim. If you put a clause into your contract saying that you can take them away, then they weren't rights at all.

Er, yes there is. Steam itself is fundamentally DRM. It exists for distribution and rights management; DRM is a core function. It has less of a track record of screwing CD burners than StarForce, but plenty of people are getting screwed in other ways, trust me.

Many Steam games install their own DRM anyway e.g. Anno 1404 installs from Steam with Tages DRM and a hard limit of three installs/hardware updates.
And five games at this price is not hot when they can be bought for a similar price elsewhere free from DRM.

Could you please tell me where? I don't buy many games these days as I get put off by the DRM. I usually wait for them to become cheap in the Steam sales. At this price it's only just over £2.50 a game, if you can tell me where else sells games this cheap I'll go there and buy a load.

There were deals on both these games, a fiver for CoH and expansion pack plus seven pounds for Dawn of War Anthology but I think both are now expired - I don't think I've seen any recently quite as low as that.

In case anyone is wondering, the deal for Dawn of War is the original (Space Marines (Imperium), Chaos, Eldar and Orks), Winter Assault (Imperial Guard (Imperium)) and Dark Crusade (Tau and Necron) giving seven armies in total for multiplayer. It doesn't include Soulstorm (Sisters of Battle (Imperium), Dark Eldar) although I don't think that's much of a loss as it was a poor expansion pack.

Better off buying company of heroes anthology which includes coh + all expansions £14-99 delivered
