Steam's Death Rally can be purchased on Greenmangaming, but not on Steam?

That's odd. It sounds like a typo, I've never heard of a game on Steam that can't be bought on Steam unless it was removed at some point. It isn't on the Removed Games thread and chances are they wouldn't still sell copies that needed Steam if it was removed from Steam itself.

It's still 08:26am over in Seattle. They usually update the store front with new/coming soon releases at 10am (when the daily deals switch over for everyone), so check the store again then.

Doesn't explain why they wouldn't announce it a bit earlier, though.

Perhaps they wanted to use Steam but not sell it on Steam? Definitely a strange situation. Oh wait never mind. It's releasing today. It won't show up on Steam till the store updates in about a hour and half. Guess they weren't interested in pre-orders enough to provide a store page early.

I think some dlc has been released early on other sites, and some indy bundles had time exclusives.
It's probably just because Steam updates at a certain time.

Actually, it happens all the time with Steamworks titles. Some recent examples: Insane 2 (available from GamersGate several months before it was directly available on Steam), Postal 3 (available via retail in certain territories and available online directly from the developer for at least a couple of weeks before being available directly from Steam), etc.

And at least one Steamworks game, NBA 2009, never got a direct release on Steam.

A lot of DLC for Steamworks games also release on other sites before directly releasing on Steam, although in most cases that delay is only a few hours or days at the most.

Now that the pointless stuff is out of the way, you guys think this is going to worth the money? I saw one "review" of the game on youtube, but it was so bad and uninformative it did not help me make up my mind.

Postal 3 took damn near 3 months before Steam started selling it, while you could buy keys elsewhere.

I bought it. I like it. Recommend another good one from Remedy.

I don't think so. Under DRM it says, "Other DRM". Steam is named when available. When added to the cart it doesn't say, "Activates on Steam" as well. Lastly, if you search for steam games it doesn't come up. I'm not 100% sure it wont work but I believe it wont.
