I still can't work out why this poor engine is worthy of a news update.... there are many, many engines more worthy of a mention.

"...there's nothing in the way of tactics (also not helped by small maps."

There's plenty of good tactics available for a game like this.

Or using capital letters, which is always more important that missing an o.

"Scooter War3z delivers a surprising combination of high-speed racing, crash'em up action and death defying ragdoll stunts."

Wow, that's really surprising! I thought the game would be the opposite of jumping on the 'how can we use these funny physics and make motor vechicles smash like the 400 games before us' bandwagon.

"...where it's all about winning."

Awesome. For a moment there I thought it'd be all about loosing.

PGR3 Textured, not stirred... oh man, I love how people think this is what reality looks like. Time to get away from the old computer and go outside, methinks.

*laughs at Hellbinder*

"For years and years we have had client based pay delivery content for games. Yeah.. heck everyone’s doing it."

Check the indie gaming scene, newly appointed captain of the moronic comment team.

I think 'Shut_The_Hell_Up' (nice name there) made some good points, but the issue isn't about the convenience of Steam. Those kinds of setups always have some payoffs in some form or another. If you really want to know what drives the angst behind things like Steam and Trymedia... have a really good think about it. And, if you just can't work out what it is that's irking people, just wait and few years, and I promise you'll find out.

There are issues about the size of Steam, or how much memory it's taking, or how it limits the control you have over what you've just purchased, but that isn't the main problem at all. When Steam was announced to the world, a lot of long-time gamers and industry developers said, "Wow, bad idea." and a lot of corporate guys said, "Ohh, this is a good idea." There's a red flag right there.

"What is your problem with understanding that both methods are okay?"

That's the problem- it looks like there won't be two methods for playing Sin2. And on a side note, Steam is not a 'cool' idea. It's a plain old idea, that's been done many, many times before. The difference is, Steam makes you a bitch, while the other methods leave you in control after you've handed over your money. But, hey... if Steam's method works for you, enjoy!

"Are there ANY recent games that allow you to stream data off the CD?"

Some, yes... but I thought the reason PC games were going to DVD was so the problem of 3gig installs could be somewhat dealt with.

Steam may work well for some people, but I believe that's in spite of the fact it's a poor way of distributing games. Downloading games over the internet? I have no problem with that. But, there are certain things about Steam (and about Valve in general) that make me cringe... like how Steam seems designed to keep everyone on a leash. Want to see a system like Steam done properly? Have a look at Totalgaming.net For me, downloading games isn't a problem. It's a 'Steam is crap' kind of issue.

Also, while Sin 2 may be worth playing when it arrives, I want a disk to play it from, because I don't want my entire harddrive filled up by a bunch of developers, who thought I wouldn't mind taking up 40gigs of space with king-size textures and fmv intros.

No disk, no buy. End of story.

So fake... but fantastic. Bravo to the guy who wrote up 'Active Telomere Union Sequencing'. I almost want to look it up and learn about it.

Looking forward to this one... especially now they don't have some voice actor off the street pretending they're one of the original characters.
