12. Re: Dead Island German Ban Nov 30, 2011, 05:07 WarpCrow
Well, that answers my question about why the listing dropped out of Steam. I wonder what happened to those Germans who bought it there previously. Valve has the power to remove a game from your library, and I wouldn't be surprised if they used it in this case to avoid liability. This is the one thing that always disturbed me a little about the service. It's like giving EBGames the power to come to my home and take one of their games back if something weird happens.

The ban itself is pointless though. Anyone who wants it can easily have it imported from Austria. Hell, I could drive over there today and pick up a copy as I live so close to the border. And, well, piracy is even easier.
