I feel like Day of Defeat is raping me

Archived from groups: alt.games.half-life (More info?)

So I'm one of the 'foolish' ones who bought the game in stores rather
than online. Now I'm being punished for that by having to pay $20
extra just to be able to play Day of Defeat. I wouldn't mind if they
had told me this upfront, but there was no indication whatsoever that
by buying the boxed version I was raping myself. What the hell, Valve?

    Hey at least it's in US dollars, there not worth much given the great
    exchange rate... I got HL2 from a shop, cost £30 Im a bit pissed that
    I'm not getting DoD:S but I can live with that. DoD:S cost me about £12
    just over two packets of fags. but that says more about how expensive
    fags are LOL and don't get me on the cost of fuel!!! 94p a liter!! so 12
    quid for a game must be good :)

    at current exchange rate, I just spent about £6 for a *carton* of cigs. 10
    packs. No DoD tho :) A half tank (10 gals) of petrol just cost me about
    £16.

    Do you mean DoD source or the original?
