If GMG offered refund for Steam games I would have picked it up.

I bet it requires steam activation. You'd still be stuck waiting til midnight to play.
Yep, any steamworks game that requires steam to activate regardless of where you buy it, typically has pre-release protection. They leave a critical file or two (like the .exe) off the disc and it has to download and decrypt, but only if its after the date.

If you bought that off the shelf, you could take it home, install it, and then wait for midnight to unlock it. Just like every single other purchaser.
