Steam or go home. I don't need Yet Another Download Client.

This is exactly what they did with MDK2 HD stuff, they kept it exclusive for like a year on beamdog to try and get market share. I would have thought they learned the difference with MDK 2 HD between the tiny bit of sales they get by doing that and the massive sales that steam can deliver. They need to give up on their download service and go full time on doing remakes and putting on steam.

They likely picked up the remake rights from interplay for next to nothing to try and push their service. But there's nothing I'm interested in about their service. It doesn't have as good of sales, it doesn't have DRM free (like GoG), etc. And despite their page saying they won't take the software away from you, they have a section similar to other companies that says they CAN indeed terminate your account.
