This is ridiculous. Firaxis still hasn't added the promised Pitboss support for Civilization 5, which they said was going to be added in a patch a month after launch.

You just stated you wanted to use Steam for DRM free software..
No, I stated that I would buy media on Steam if it was DRM free. If you had read my earlier posts you would have seen that I was actually critical of Steam's DRM. But if you'd prefer to just make stuff up and attack me for it then go ahead... whatever gets you off.

I have way more interest in Dishonored than Bioshock Infinite.
I'm interested in both of them but I'm slightly concerned they may both under deliver. I'm much more interested in Borderlands 2 and Far Cry 3.

Mafia 2 was excellent - I much preferred it to GTA4, even though they were obviously quite different games. I'm really glad that Mafia 3 is in the works, particularly as a next-gen title.

Ugh Steam is DRM, lol. And when your first issue arises with them and they ban your entire account of 400 titles, don't come here crying.
Or if your computer gets hacked and they run a cheat and you get banned.. Don't come here crying, or when your 9 year old decides he wants to install a aim bot... And Steam locks your entire account. Dont come here crying. Or when Steam, decides on issueing new terms that you can't agree too... Please note, you can't even uninstall the software without accepting the terms.
I'm well aware that Steam includes a form of DRM. As for the rest of your statement, I've been using Steam for over 7yrs and none of that stuff has ever happened to me or anyone I know. There's definitely room for improvement but your whining doesn't match reality.

Since when do most American workers make a living wage, have rights, and get health care insurance? China may be virtual slave labor but the US isn't that far off and most people definitely fall into the category of indentured servant. And compared to other first world nations - you know, all those evil socialist countries - it's really atrocious by comparison. But hey, who needs things like a better standard of living for themselves and their families and friends when millionaires and billionaires need those tax breaks!!!
I rarely agree with Cutter but... nail + head.

I wonder if valve up'd their time table on releasing this because of Windows 8? It's no secret that Gabe feels threatened by it given his past comments.
Yeah, I don't think it's a coincidence. But Valve could have done this years ago. And it's the same with media - I'd much rather buy all my media (DRM free) through a centralised service like Steam where I can redownload it whenever I please. Especially with Steam style sales. I rarely buy TV shows, movies or music but would very much more likely to if they were available through Steam, DRM-free, redownloadable and offered at a sensible price.

I also think it's a mistake that Valve hasn't done enough for touchscreen devices, particularly the casual market. Although I'm not much into that myself by not getting there more quickly Microsoft will be able to dominate the market without any competition.

A 75% off for the Adobe creative suite would rock but I still don't like the idea of everything being tied to steam. They screwed me for almost 2 weeks due to a payment issue on their end combined with Steam's horrid support system. If I had productivity apps tied to steam during that time I needed for work, I would have been screwed. I don't think they can put professional level programs on their service at all without full time 24/7 technical phone support as a bare minimum. These 2.5 day wait times between support emails will not cut it for productivity/mission critical/work related applications.
For all the criticism of EA, they do at least do technical support pretty well. Sure most of the time you're talking to people in India with a poor grasp of the English language but despite that problems are usually resolved pretty quickly. The same cannot be said of Valve. Considering the amount of money that Valve is making with Steam they do really need to improve the service.

My concern is that the Steam DRM will get in the way. With games Steam was an improvement over CD-checks and the increasingly draconian DRM of retail products. However, with applications while they often require activation once you've activated them you never see it again. Sometimes Steam can delay the launch of a game by upwards of ten seconds (in exceptional cases, minutes) and that would get pretty annoying if it was Word or Photoshop.

Valve really needs to address the start-up delay caused by its DRM. Application / game launches should be instant. It also needs to improve its validation system, as too many games fail to launch and require me to manually validate the integrity of the game cache - this is especially true when dual-booting.

I'm all for Valve adding applications to Steam, especially if it brings prices down. But Valve really needs to address some of the core issues with the Steam platform and client.

I hope they let me filter all none game content out.
They might add a check box like they have with DLC, though I imagine it will be shown by default. I'm interested to see how they implement it myself, especially with regards to the library.

The Steam client is in need of a complete overhaul but it's probably expecting too much for them to coincide it with the launch of non-gaming titles, especially when there hasn't been a beta client.

Hmmm... Can I have Adobe Creative Suite for 75% off @ Summer/Winter Sale?

Actually, sales like that would probably make those companies a fucking fortune! It might sound like a joke but I expect to see exactly those sort of sales over time.

I'm surprised they didn't do it sooner, to be perfectly honest. Same with media, from TV shows to music - although obviously they couldn't get away with using DRM for it. I like Steam because I can keep all my programs on a separate drive and when I reinstall Windows all my games are ready to go, minus the short initial config time. If Valve can do that with other apps - from Office to WinRAR - then that would really appeal to me.

I don't know if anyone else has tried the Office 2013 Preview but one of the best features is the integration with SkyDrive. If Valve can do the same with Steam Cloud then that's great.

DayZ is a half-assed mod on a half-assed engine. The only plus from this is that people won't have to buy a crappy game that they have no interest in just to play a mod.

While I'm hopeful this will be a decent game I'm slightly concerned by the media put out recently. It doesn't look as free-form as it really needs to be. Also, it's going to be competing against games like Borderlands 2 and Far Cry 3 which both look like much, much better games.

Even if it turns out to be decent I'll probably wait for a sale.

Most people probably read the large amount of user and critic reviews. There are many reviews out for this, I haven't seen a single one saying the amount of content is anywhere near an expansion pack. It's usually pegged at around 10-15 hours.
Can you actually name an expansion pack that is longer than 15hrs? Most are a fraction of that length... heck, many full games like COD and BF3 are shorter than that!

The length of that expansion really isn't the issue here - it's the quality of the content. The core game featured a lot of content and it was very diverse - there was something for everyone. This is a lot more focused and the plot doesn't seem to relate to anything that was in the core game... well, not the 90hrs that I played. The real issue is that most people burned out on the original content and this just isn't exciting enough to draw a lot of people back.
