Seriously, what does one do if you have no internet connection?Exactly! Believe it or not some gamers don't have internet connections. When that rumor was going around that Valve would start product activation I was pissed but--according to the fake rumor--you could still activate your game by mailing in a card, so I became not so pissed. I understand what a HUGE problem game piracy is. Sure, for internet game content you can assume everyone has in internet connection. I just hope they don't forget about SP gamers with no internet access, whatever scheme they come up with.
