It absolutely is Steam. They don't get a cut if DLC is sold IN GAME, so they don't allow it.

Explain Mass Effect 2. The DLC isn't available on Steam, or anywhere else besides through EA's stores, and you can buy it in game. The game itself is available on Steam.

And frankly, if I could buy the DLC on Steam rather than through EA's Bioware bucks pain in the ass system I'd rather do that. If that's the scenario Valve is trying to stop, well, then more power to them. EA's DLC system sucks, and if they were offering something better then maybe I'd be behind them a bit on this...but as it is the only people they're screwing are their customers. Again.


I thought about that too. I'm replaying ME2 right now. You can't buy the DLC "in game". When you click to download it, it opens a web browser and you buy the DLC there. Then download the DLC from the web site and install it. It automatically installs it to your Steam version. This is not the same as IN GAME DLC. That's my take on it anyway. IN GAME DLC means to me, that you pay for the DLC in the game, and it downloads in the game. Kind of like when an MMO updates.

I think Mike Capps is right, consoles are history. Which should make the Blues News crowd happy. Until they start porting cell phone games to PC lol...

I don't think it has much of anything to do with Steam. It's more EA trying to push it's own bunk social/gaming service, Origin. If this is such a big deal with EA, why don't any of the other big name publishers seem to have the same problem with Valve?

It absolutely is Steam. They don't get a cut if DLC is sold IN GAME, so they don't allow it.

I think technical companies should never let sales and marketing employees post anything like this...it's just totally wrong.

I'm not sure what you mean. The post was made by a software engineer there. Are you trying to say he is lying or is incorrect?

Dust DRM Dust Up Dusted Off and not by Dusty Springfield.

Anyway, I want to try this game but will need to see some reviews and/or a demo for certain.


If you have an Xbox, you can try the trial version on console...

I bought it. I'll probably get the PC version too since it will be prettier and the controls will be a lot better.

I haven't gotten very far really, though, because I've been too busy with Catherine. If your tired of the same old thing, I highly recommend that game. I've never played anything like it.

That should be a quote of the day:

"We're building the strength of our most important IP. And for EA, this means about a dozen very substantial IPs,” he added. “Each of these will be transformed into year-round businesses with major packaged goods launches, social launches, mobile launches, downloadable content and micro-transactions."

Did you see the Youtube video I made in the last thread? I decked a hooker - Game of the Year.

So you find hitting women makes a game, Game of the Year? ... classy...

These guys did the horribly broken and unfinished Trapped Dead, which happens to be on sale on Steam right now.

Some more form and structure may make GSB more fun (or fun), but I'm a firm believer that tower defense games belong on the phone (where they're a great way to kill 10 minutes) not the computer (where they're casual games.)

You really should try Defense Grid. I couldn't imagine trying to play that game on a phone.

Split/Second was a little shallow, but it was pretty unique and I had a ton of fun playing it. That's a shame for those guys. On the other side, I will say, maybe if they were making another racing game, they would still have jobs.

I downloaded the full version and there is no demo as far as I can tell. Your two options are buy or enter a license.

This web site is pretty good. It even has the sounds they make. I only see the word "flock" used though.

Sounds like this whole Play for Free movement has got somebody nervous!

Gee....so they charge $50 for the game....and then..what....$15 per month? What a cash cow that thing is!

Wikipedia says they have 11.4 million subs x $15.00....JESUS that's a boat load of cash per month! That's about $171 million PER MONTH!

It's a little less because sub rates are different if you buy it in monthly blocks....but still....

Why does everyone assume its $15 in every country. Not Even Close.
