Dead Space 2 on Steam continues to be horribly broken while they fix Doom 3, a subpar game nobody plays.


See, buying Dead Space 2 on Steam rewards you with a DLC "feature" which makes all items in the shop free - even the most powerful ones. All the prices are FUBAR'd.

You can go around that and redeem Dead Space 2 code via Origin, and get Dead Space 2 v1.0, which does not have that problem - unfortunately it has a game-breaking bug which creates constant noise and mini-inventory never goes away from the screen.

The sane solution, I suppose, is to get a pirated cracked patched version, but at this point I am too tired to bother.

This is not true, or it wasn't when I played through a year ago. The Steam version of DS2 comes with all the DLC items, for free. If you have the console or Origin versions, you have to pay money for the DLC -- at which point it's also free in game.

The regular, non-DLC weapons cost the same as they normally would.

When you go to a shop, anything with a fancy icon on it is a DLC item, and is free. Their name also has some modifier in it, so that instead of a Ripper you'd be buying a Bloody Ripper or something. If you don't select those, you're playing the original game.
