I wouldn't and I hardly use my phone to make calls. I like to have a phone that fits in my pocket.
Or a PDA, that doesn't require a phone, on my wrist like Casio Data Bank 150/300 watches.

I think back then I was using Apple 2 BASIC (modified simple games from other codes), LOGO, playing Atari 2600 and Apple //c games (also made maps like in Lode Runner and Pinball Construction Set), etc.

And anyway, I'm willing to bet that the majority of people participating in such "beta tests" are only interested in getting to play the game earlier, not actually providing feedback... I'll be skipping it, too, though. Not really into beta testing story-based RPGs.
It is like a free sample. I do this too. I do report issues if I run into them.

I agree, there's no reason that shouldn't have been fixed a log time ago...

Log?

This updated Steam client is still slow and bloated to me.

Not really surprised, just really annoyed. Back in the day (old geyser mode), demos were freely distributed to showcase/tease a game. Now, everything is either behind a wall of some sort or in some me-too app store (origin, steam, etc).

At some point, I just give up after too many flaming hoops to jump through. Yes, I know it's just another piece of software to install, but it's completely unnecessary to try a game demo.

I'd prefer to buy a game and then play the cracked version to avoid the extra garbage.
Yeah, I miss the old days of free sample softwares.

I dislike comparing the two movies directly. One is pure horror, the other is action SF. I think that Ridley Scott made a brilliant film, I also think that James Cameron made a fantastic sequel. No one, and I mean literaly no one thought Cameron could pull it off, yet he did with flying colors. If I had to pick I would pick Alien, as the better film, but I hate to pick between the two..
Both first movies were the best.

Like you said, both great, not really comparable. One thing I'll say is that Aliens holds up better than the first one. Also, it's infinitely more quoteable:

Hudson: "Game over man! Game over!"

Ripley: "I say we take off and nuke the entire site from orbit. It's the only way to be sure."

Ripley: "Did IQs just drop sharply while I was away?"

Hudson: "Stop your grinnin' and drop your linen!"

Frost: "Hot as hell in here."
Hudson: "Yeah man, but it's a dry heat!"

Hudson: "I say we grease this rat-fuck son-of-a-bitch right now."

Vasquez: "LET'S ROCK!"

Drake: "Hey, Hicks. Man, you look just like I feel."

Hudson: "Is this gonna be a standup fight, sir, or another bug hunt?"

Hudson: "It's reading right man, look!"

Ripley: "Get away from her, you bitch!"
"Maybe it's like an ant hive..." "Bees man, bees have hives." "You know what I mean. It's like one female that runs the whole show." "Yes, the queen." "Yeah the mamma. She is bad*ss, man. I mean big." "These things ain't ants estupido." "I know that." --Aliens movie
