Good news, bad news time.

The good — no, scratch that — the great news is the X-Com games are available on Steam.

The bad — no, scratch that — the horrible news is the X-Com games aren’t available to Steam users worldwide. This is what I see when I attempt to buy the games:
Steam: X-Com: not available in your region
It’s been years since the games were first released. Why aren’t they made available to every single Steam user? I could, I suppose, pay someone to gift the games to me but I shouldn’t need to resort to that.

Valve is fond of touting the number of Steam accounts worldwide — 15 million right now — but clearly some Steam users are more privileged than others.

Good Old Games can’t launch fast enough for me.
