But why are they doing it? Control?
Yes, it's for control. It's an attempt keep pirated copies of Source games from being able to acquire and play mods. It's a failed attempt because the pirates are smarter than that, but as you can see from this news story it does fuck over honest users.

Getting a free game isn't getting fucked over.

This looks like it could be fun but it also seems to be another game designed for co-op with stupid bots thrown in for single-player. Given that Tomb Raider is traditionally a single-player game, this focus on co-op is disappointing.

And this same logic scares me to think how Portal 2 will be single player.

I'm surprised it doesn't say anything about Steam Cloud support - seems like the perfect game to enable automatic saved game syncing.

Elizabeth over at 2K confirmed it will have steam cloud support.

Everybody should pre-order Amnesia kthx.

Already did from the dev's website. Ordering from there will get you a steam activation.

First it was "it's up to our publisher"

Then it was "it's best played on the couch"

Now it's "we're too small"

Back pedal faster remedy. The water is too deep and you're drowning in the see of your own excuses.

The atmosphere in Penumbra was top notch. Then I kept getting killed by a badly textured demon dog and I quit in frustration. I should probably go back and try playing through again, but the pace (not to mention lack of combat) of the game takes some getting used to for this long-time FPS junkie.

Get the dogs to chase you into the cages with the steam pipes and then open the steam valves to kill them. Part 2 is more refined, better overall gameplay.

Awesome. Everyone should pre-order this because Frictional is the only dev still making good survival horror games.

100% spoken for truth. People need to play the Penumbra games.

Blue you're not on top of it. I've sent you a couple emails alerting you of new gameplay vids and preorder info on Frictional's new game but you don't have anything up yet.

I don't much even look for demos anymore.

a) Many many games nowadays don't have demos
b) Many many demos are copy protected with weird crap that I don't want infesting my system. I understand why they do it, because otherwise the demo exe is sometimes used to bypass copy protection on the release, but that doesn't mean I have to like it.
c) Many demos are horrible representations of the real game. Either they totally suck compared to the real game, in which case I'd be missing out on a good game (for instance the L4D2 demo totally sucked, and almost turned me off from the game, it included only a single game mode on only a couple levels out of a single campaign, and the best move in the game "scavenge" wasn't included, and neither was any mode where you controlled special infected. It bored me so much I only played the demo levels once or maybe twice through), or else they show the best 2 levels in the game and give a false impression that the rest of the game is that good, when really it was only those 2 levels that got all the polish, and the rest they just crapped out without polishing. In fact game devs have a vested interest in putting the best foot forward if the game isn't that great, or perhaps not even doing a demo at all.
d) Its not worth my time to see if any of those apply to a specific game/demo, and especially point c) is very subjective anyway.

A) your point is worthless and has nothing to do with Torchlight
B) Absolute complete bullshit excuse. I have NEVER had my PC infected with "weird" crap in my 15 years of PC gaming by a demo.
C) If a demo sucks, then you don't like the game, aren't going to buy it, and therefore should not play it.
C-2) Not all demos are either totally sucky or falsely represent the game.
D) It would almost always take less time to read reviews, look at chat threads, and watch gameplay videos to get an impression of a game
than to download an illegal copy of it. If it's not worth your time to put forth effort, then it should not be worth your time to play in the first place.


When you go out to eat, do you use the same thought process? Do you eat the food without ordering it, and if you like it, decide to purchase it if (and only if) it's marked down because of happy hour?

I "aquired" this game on the internet when it came out, and I'm glad that it went on sale so I can get a "real" copy now and support the devs. Its definately a great little gem.

It's great you bought the game but when there is a demo for it what is your justification in pirating?

Steamcloud and achievements are a HUGE update! This game is an absolute steal at $10. RIDICULOUS value.

The fact that everyone in the world already owns counter strike source, and it continues to seemingly sell so well bodes for me that digital sales just aren't as high as everyone would like to believe.

Why is EA selective about which games are on digital download services? None of the Sims games are on Steam, and it was only last week that c&c 3 and it's expansion were brought to Steam.

Honestly, a part of this problem stems from PC manufacturers such as HP and Dell offering component combinations that do not make any sense. They sell underpowered laptops with blu ray drives (why????) and desktops with 1.5 terabyte hard drives with 6 gigs of ram and an integrated Intel GPU.

When PC's that are being sold can't even run the $40 software on sale the next isle over, it's no wonder that retail sales have slumped for years.

Great, but until they remove the 3 non-revocable activations limit then I'm not interested. Shame, as I REALLY want to play it.

They did with the last patch. Now are you going to purchase it?
