just started bad company 2, and a big update is downloading...
also notice on steam that they are pushing the vietnam expansion pack, for £9.99 - start playing 3 days early.
my bc2 was bought in a shop and was non-steam powered - reading the steam forums, it seems that the steam expansion will work on a non-steam base game install - all you get from steam is an unlock code that you've got to type into your EA account...all the data is in the update.
i'm going to wait for the update download to finish (it looks as if it's going to take some time
), then cross my fingers and bash the plastic on steam, and will report back.
