I never agreed with Vavle's method of forcing me to connect to the internet to activate a game after which I've paid for. And further more if I don't feel the need to run updates I shouldn't be forced into the malware STEAM constantly trying to append their needs ("their" being Valve).
And what gets my goat the most is the total dickless faggots out there that agree with this kind of surreptitious policy.
I agree though, something needs to be done about blatant piracy. But FUCK this horse shit. If I decide to install this app on another system, which I am about to do. Due to the incessant need to upgrade my fucking hardware and redeploy MS Windows XP Pro to another box from my RIS server running M$.
I think as a courtesy... Wait!" I mean as an OBLIGATION, Valve needs to send us quote:"legal responsible owners" of Half Life 2 a link to a binary that we can download and activate our product offline as we need.
