What we need is a government regulated DRM if we must have DRM and regulation on delivery and pricing.
We need a GLOBAL standard on delivery and format for images of "games" so ONE company cannot CONTROL you and deny
You really are at the MERCY of Valve. If they get the huff becuase you said the "F" word in frustration in a support email and they disable your account, you are fcuked.
I know becuse that happend to me. I even appologised as they asked, but still no account access.
So, no HL2 Episode two money from me. This is where it will HURT them, their latest hard work and effort (laugh). Seriously, If you want a way to protest them, boycott HL2 Epp 2. Public embarassment with low sales!
VOTE WITH YOUR WALLET, and send an email to all the publishers that support Steam explaining why you wont give them YOUR MONEY. Do this for EVERY new game title and publisher they announce on Steam. Eventually they will get the message.
Also, send an email (if in Europe) to your Euro MP requesting them investigate Steam pricing (since iTunes investigations is currently in vogue) and also DRM regulation.
YOU HAVE THE POWER.
I was very pro steam but now after my experience, I am VERY anti Steam. I cannot even submit support tickets and I cannot register my games to another account. In short, I AM FUCKED. and fucked off I am.
Good on Maddoxx for pwning them. He has my support.
Money is mine, they have to jump through MY hoops to get it from now on. YOU let them take YOU for GRANTED, well not me, not any more. You can play sheep if you want. Thats up to you.This comment was edited on Apr 20, 15:19.
