    I can believe it since people are stupid.

    Btw....

    How would you go about adding Psychonauts to Steam after the fact? I know they offer it for $20, but I already own it. The problem is, Psychonauts is not one of those games that requires a CD-Key. Is there anyway to "register" it to Steam without it having a key?

    Nope, unfortunately you can't do this with Steam. I really wish they'd come up with some way to do it though, I'd love to just have everything registered on Steam for me to download at will and not have to fish out for cds ever again.

    EDIT: Also wanna add that I'm actually participating this month. I haven't played the game in well over a year so I decided it was time to play through again I'm extremely happy to see that the game runs in widescreen without issue.

    Didn't hit the dance party as required due to house searching and family dropping in somewhat unexpectedly. Nothing will keep me from making the goal this week, though. I just can't miss out on that delicious milk.

    Odd that the lake bottom is one of my least favorite levels in the whole game, but it leads straight into the Goggalor level which is just classic.

    5 CD's. 'nuff said.

    That, and there is a corruption issue when trying to run it without reinstalling it after an OS reinstall. (It's on my data partition.) In the Milkman section of the game, if you use clarivoyance on anything, it disappears from the game.

    Yup. Not to mention any updates are automatic. (Not likely with such an old game, but still, the concept is sound.) Also, if you ever reinstall on a brand new system, it will simply download the game, and you will be ready to play again. Tres' chic.

    Sadly, that means having to buy the game again. Psychonauts has no CD key, which means no way to "add" it to Steam, other than purchasing it directly through Steam.
