Yeah games need no armour. Steam is not that worst. Tell that to Ubi. Everytime I see a ubi game in store it is a cursed mark and should be avoided like the plague because of its Dreaded DRM of Doom.
I felt sorry for the developers of Anno 2070. Its a great game to the point that I bought it despite its DRM. Paying customers shouldn't be punished and treated like pirates.
No DRM is the reason why I love GOG aside from the cool game line-ups
Anno 2070's online system is pretty bad, but at least you can play offline, granted sans Ark storage, profile perks, etc.--that's the biggest insult in how that game's online system was implemented.
Ubisoft's Always-On DRM and Steam are equally bad to me. Steam's offline mode never worked properly for me, so being offline and wanting to play a Steam game--like for a few days when my ISP had a sudden regional service outage and there was no warning that i should put Steam into offline mode--was always a bigger barrier than the server trouble with Anno 2070. Haven't got any real Always-On games, but I imagine the experience is the same as trying to get a Steam game to run when you don't have a connection to put Steam into offline mode.
Back on topic edit: I can't wait to see what GOG does on Tuesday. And if they start reworking games to remove cloud-based DRM like Steamworks, etc, I could die happy Tuesday afternoon.
