What do you think about it? is worth it?
Personally, I think it's one of the best things to happen to video games in a long time.
Massive library of games
Helps a lot of indie devs get their games out
Great fucking deals
The only things I ever hear bad about it are DRM and the fact you have to be connected to the internet. The DRM isn't even that bad though. Also some people complain about not having a physical copy but I'm a lazy bastard and I prefer not having to change the disc every time I play a game.
DRM? what is that? also you need internet to download those game, but you also need it to play it?
Well its called steamworks, you have to be connected to the internet at least once. Like you can connect, then choose "go offline" and still access all your games, but you cant just start it up without an internet connection. The games are on your harddrive, they get autopatched, and they are often on sale, especially during like christmas you can get major titles for huuuge discounts (very often greater than 60%).The client is free, and has a nice friends overlay plus achievments. The service is pretty secure, not even lulzsec could crack the actual accounts because of steamguard. You can also add non steam games so you can use the chat overllay while playing.
Too much support for a single thing. This thread needs more violent opposition.
Steaming pile of shit. No opinion on the matter, just wanted to use that pun.
So you just were thinking about shit, (as per usual) saw this thread and scrambled to make the pun?
I realize this insult is a little bit weak, but I just wanted to claim you think about shit a lot.
No, just when I'm browsing EDF.
This thread needs a poll
1 Install steam on your computer
2 Get your ballsack torn apart by a pitbull
Im going with 2
Even though you can just uninstall it after installing it. But if you want to go piss off a pitbull and put your ballsack into its mouth, be my guest.
I'm asking because I'm planing to buy some games, unfortunately those games are difficult to get in my city.
Ah, you poor girl. You've never heard of torrents.
What's annoying about people who give these kinds of polls is that you know they would much sooner go for the so-called "undesirable" option than the 2nd choice in a minute if they were actually placed in front of the person.
After reading the ED article I'm not sure anymore, it's seem that somebody hacked Steam
they hacked steam FORUMS. Waaay different from steam. Whenever you log into steam from a different than usual computer (even something as minor as changing what harddrive you boot from), it sends a code to the email you registered with that you have to use to unlock the code. So its actually difficult to hack one person, and impossible en masse.
I see, thanks.
just stop jerking it to scootaloo and you don't have to thank me.
Yes, we all know.
A lot of PC games that you buy physically require some sort of connection to the internet, subscription with a company, or game manager. You'd be surprised how many games nowadays need Steam in order to be activated, like when I bought my copy of Modern Warfare 2 and The Orange Box. Although, you don't always have to be connected to the net to play, you just have to run Steam and play your games off of the UI, and even if the UI crashes certain games still play without the Steam interface.
Get it if you want, just don't expect to be able to download games quickly at all if you don't have a good internet connection. Oh, and hl2.exe has stopped working.
Steam is a hit or miss with me. Alot of games wont launch proplerly. And there are times where the store will fuck up and say theres an error but you just bought the same thing twice. But for the games I bought that work, I don't have many problems with them and I got them a great price.
Fuck yea, steam is grand. I bought a physical copy of Medieval 2 total war and the expansions for only 5 dollars. You can buy the whole total war collection for under a 100 dollars on steam.
