That's only if I was willing to buy directly from steam again, and I am not. Steam screwed me because their credit card processor messed up. So the only way I will get a steam game is if a bundle or retail / other store sells the product. Never again will I buy direct from steam. If I could convert my entire steam game library to a DRM free version I would and erase steam permanently. But since that isn't going to be possible, I can still use their service and get free stuff in the process if they do these steam achievement things during their "sales" and not directly give them money again. ;)
so they made a single mistake, and that's a big deal? i guess it must be great being perfect and never making mistakes, huh?
I went with GOG too. I've had times when Steam servers are down, "Game is currently unavailable" or if there is no internet at the moment I can't play any of my games...unless I save my password which I don't do.
why not? my internet connection has been unreliable since February and whenever it goes out on me i just switch Steam to offline mode and keep gaming like nothing happend. works like a charm, every time.
But you can download it, store on a couple of usb hdds for redundancy, and install it long after gog dies. You can't have this guarantee with steam, now.
but you can do the same with the standalone installer from the devs! and have the game on Steam at the same time.
am i talking to a wall here?!?
