Pre-Purchase TrackMania˛ Stadium and/or ShootMania Storm today and receive a 10% discount and extras in the Open Beta that is running for both games."

Anyone who bought Trackmania2 Canyon, use your key on Steam and you'll get the game on Steam.

Thanks for the tip, that worked perfectly.

If I ever decided to buy another game from Nadeo, I can now gladly skip the crappy ManiaPlanet...

If TM uses steamworks to distribute racing maps, this could finally get me to actually play the fucking thing again.

Finding good trackmania maps was like pulling teeth. Which is fucking stupid considering that the whole point of the game was it's social aspect.

I'm sorry, didn't buy your first whole package..as all it gave me over the free one was cars. Cars that all in all didn't really feel different enough to separate the experience...so what is the point?(a friend's buyer's remorse taught me that.)

I do agree that they really gave too much away with Trackmania Stadium (or TrackMania Nations Forever as they call it now), but to say all you got when buying the full deal was more cars is just wrong. There were loads more environments, tracks, modes, etc...

This is just desperation as after their smugness early on earned them a giant "Nobody Cares!" anywhere west of the Atlantic Ocean.

I know a number of people who passed on TM2 as TM was iffy at best for any kind of casual fun, and there was no way to demo the game other than their offhanded snub saying it was like the first game, just buy it.

No I'm good thanks Nadeo....you're just too hipster for yourself for me to bother.

Oh yeah, Shootmania=Guffaw!

It was only a matter of time before they realized they needed to step out from the shadow of Ubisoft's big head...
