So updating things is now worth a patent? Are you fucking kidding me? And what they're proposing is asinine beyond belief. Want to increase longevity? Put in editors and/or map randomizers with your games.

What the hell is up with all these games disappearing? This is VERY concerning for Steam users. Can you imagine a world where one day EA/Activision, etc. REMOVE a game from your Steam library because you no longer have license rights to play it? That would suck!

Oh it already happened....
Steam removed "Order of War" from people who purchased it....Google it

That's what I've been saying for ages. This whole move from physical to digital where you dont own anything but rather are loaned a license which can be taken away at whim is one of the worst things to happen to gaming in recent years. Convenience is great, but at what cost?

Internet Archive puts classic 70s and 80s games online.

The other day, my internal monologue was saying, "I really miss Pong. Wish I could play that again." And now, presto!

Can you do us a favor and internally say to yourself "I wish that NamecaF wins $4,000,000 in tonight's lotto"?

I much prefer the days of physical over digital.

1a. You owned something physical, not just an intangible "license"
1b. Which grants you additional legal rights (at least here in Australia) including consumer rights so you're entitled to refunds (unlike Steam)
2. You always had access to the game/files forever. They couldn't be revoked or pulled or disabled like digital games/files can!
3. Quicker to copy and install (than download a 20gb game)
4. Doesnt use up your bandwidth and broadband quota
5. Could be lent to a friend or easily installed on your second PC/laptop

The only drawback to physical was in relation to having to always have the disc in your drive to play the game (legally-gray "cracks" were always a good way to circumvent this though)

Digital is just convenient - but by no means better IMHO.

* Added an option for micro-transactions!
You can now buy Champ new outfits for 10 bucks a piece, or pay for a 50 bucks season pass to obtain them all as they become available, before you've even seen what they are. Now you can really dress in style and so can Champ too! (Just kiddin’, but it shows the sad state of the industry when you probably half believed that whilst reading it.)

So true. "Micro-transactions" and DLC need to die. Bring back expansions or offer more/significant features and better value "DLC"!

God I hate publishers and arrogant devs who abhor their customers.

There are lot of shitty multiplayer games out there. Gamers have been asking for more co op games for years, and still, designers and devs just don't know what to do. It surprises me considering that almost everyone has a broadband connection and is always online, not to mention that pcs and now newer consoles have more than enough memory. Come on devs, make more multiplayer and co op games. Screw single player, there are enough of them already!

Actually, it's the opposite. I wish devs/publishers would focus more on SP instead of MP instead of trying to spread themselves too thin and included both (in some half-assed attempt to appeal to "everyone").

It would take way too long to list all the games with completely shite and/or short SP campaigns because they had to focus on providing "a multiplayer experience" as well.

And no, not almost everyone has broadband and is always online. Perhaps in the US (even then, I wouldn't bet on it) but in a lot other countries, this is definitely not the case at all.

For anyone who's been having trouble with desktop and browser instability with the latest drivers, as I was, these might do the trick. I've got a 460 GTX and wasn't able to install anything past 314.22 without getting frequent crashes.

Been using 331.58 for the past week or so (which were posted in the Nvidia forum as a test driver) and all's been well so far.

Same. I've got two 460 GTXs and 320.49 were the latest stable drivers I could find. Everything after that caused random crashes even on desktop/firefox. So hopefully these fix that.

I really wish they would get their fucking act together and release drivers that dont keep locking up or killing older graphics cards.

Anything after 320.49 is completely unstable for my GTX 460s.

Looks like Valve screwed up. I hope they reimburse these developers, the promo was only meant to be for Blackwell Deception.

"Today I am not happy with Steam."

"Steam screwed up the Deception codes royally. I have removed the codes from the free Deception offer temporarily."
