Alas, poor wallet! I knew him, Macbook Pro.
Steam sale would be a good thing if it didn’t mean having to use their Steaming turd software.
… Go on.
There’s always one, just go back to Origin or Games for Windows Live :)
Games for Windows Live was indeed preferable- it was easy to bypass so you didn’t have to use it. Never understood why so many people get such a hard-on for Steam. GOG does the whole thing much better and I really hope they start getting more new games.
GOG.com is great, no DRM, extras, sales, etc. But I actually prefer Steam, which I hate myself for saying because I hate DRM. Steam’s library function, cloud saves, friends list, these are all things I use all the time. Even the overlay browser can be handy for games that don’t play well with alt+tab. Anyway, I’ve got something like 360+ games in my Steam library and I am proud that there are only about 90 I’ve never played. GOG.com I’ve probably purchased over 50 games from, and then the rest through Humble Bundle. I haven’t bought a retail physical disc since 2007.
Steam is DRM I can support, because it works, it doesn’t slow the system down too badly, it has an offline mode, and the achievements bring you the best part of XBOX (in my opinion) to your PC. The biggest problem I have with Steam is when the game publishers use their own DRM in conjunction with steam (I’m looking at you UBISOFT!), that always causes problems and boggs the whole system down.
