I'm wondering if these games will be updated so that they all work on Windows 7. The thing which put me off of Baldur's was all the CD swapping - if that's no longer an issue I may go for it.

What's the problem? I find my tolerance for draconian DRM is inversely proportional to how much the game costs....

This game is fucking asymptotic.

Perhaps they subscribe to the same principle but get stuck on the divide by zero error and default to whining?

It DOES require that you are online when you play it
and that's why the company can go **** themselves.

Here! Here!

Personally, with that sort of DRM, I'm going to pirate this title - those bastards aren't going to get a penny from me!

Why must my reason be one that isn't shared across all stores? What difference does that make to the fact that I like using Steam?

Because the whole point of the conversation you chimed in on was why Steam's features would please singleplayer only gamers. That was the entire point I was discussing. So when you come in and say "I am a singleplayer gamer and like Steam" it gives me the impression there is something about Steam that appeals to you as a singleplayer gamer. I wanted to know what that was.

I guess you have nothing though, so... okay?

The original point, which isn't so hard to find as it's on the very same page, was: "It's true though, for singleplayer gamers who don't care about social networking features Steam is really just a hassle."

To which I replied: "Personally, as a player who predominantly plays singleplayer and really doesn't care about social networking features, I like Steam. I don't see it as a hassle at all. I have more storage space and losing or damaging my games is no longer an issue. Perhaps I'm an exception, but I'd still prefer not to be tarred with the same brush."

So let's fast-forward to where we are now. I ask "Why must my reason be one that isn't shared across all stores? What difference does that make to the fact that I like using Steam?"

And you respond with "Because the whole point of the conversation you chimed in on was why Steam's features would please singleplayer only gamers."

So you're saying that I must like Steam for reasons besides the ones I already mentioned because your conversation was about why Steam's features would please singleplayer only gamers.

If anybody can explain that logic to me then I'd be very grateful. I read through the text but it doesn't make a lick of sense.

My original counter-point still stands: I don't see Steam as a hassle.

I guess you have nothing though, so... okay?

It's relevant for you, sure. However, I wasn't talking about other digital distributors. Your original point was against Steam, and that was what I was addressing. If you're going to try and steer me off course then don't be surprised when I take the wheel back.

I'm not really grasping what you are saying I guess. Why do you like Steam as a singleplayer gamer? Give me a reason that isn't shared across all stores.

I'm sure that they're not Steam-specific, and I never claimed that they were. I was just affirming that I happen to like Steam. If you don't know what I mean by that, then perhaps a time-out is in order?

Your snarky reply is pretty unwarranted. You said you liked Steam even though you're a singleplayer gamer for reasons X and Y. Pointing out that X and Y apply to every digital distributor is pretty relevant.

It's relevant for you, sure. However, I wasn't talking about other digital distributors. Your original point was against Steam, and that was what I was addressing. If you're going to try and steer me off course then don't be surprised when I take the wheel back.

The two benefits you list are not at all Steam specific, so I don't know what you mean. GOG or Gamersgate provide the same benefits and are the distribution method I very much prefer for singleplayer games.

When I say this kind of stuff on here I get endless replies about being a "Steam basher" and shit like that. It's true though, for singleplayer gamers who don't care about social networking features Steam is really just a hassle.

If you guys keep mentioning Heat I'm gonna be forced to buy this.

And I don't even think it looks that good, looks like it's got that watered down L4D gunplay thing happening.

Okay, I took the bait. I'm now downloading PAYDAY. If anybody fancies a laugh (the private kind, I don't have a mic!) look for sNiPEY on Steam. I'm the one with the baby in a helmet with the Arnie quote. 96% done...

I'm keeping my eyes peeled on this one. If/when they sort out the bugs I may well dive on to the bandwagon. It sounds like it may potentially be a lot of fun, and it sounds like they're taking an active stance in dealing with it. Both big pluses in my book.
