So, I bought it, got my Steam key, put it in, downloaded and ran 'Star Control: Origins - Fleet Battles BETA' from my Steam library, clicked on the Install link in the Star Control tab, and it asks me for an email.
I put my email address in, check my mail, click on the link.... it says I'm now registered for 30 days.
Switch back over to the application and click continue, and... nothing. It just keeps telling me I need to check my mail and activate the link.
I've done this several times now, and it won't let me proceed. What's going on?
EDIT Nevermind, it eventually worked after about 10 tries.
