Faaatty!

And it's not that, Spehss. Taw's computer can't run Steam, I believe.

That fact, to me, is fucking hysterical.

My computer could run Steam. I just don't have the bandwidth or cash to download games often.

Also this.

Fouutty!

He's just jealous. Hail to the Steam, liberator of the interwebs, slayer of Origin. Hail Valve, ward of Steam, who populated it's land with games, who promises us our glory with HL3. Hail GabeN, king of Steam, Head of Valve, who assisted the creation of this very OS, who deemed them unworthy.

Steam
I'll be angrily amused if Steam is updated into unworkable oblivion at some point. So many games on it have a DRM that requires Steam active to run and it always tries to update on contact with internet...

Does that include hailing the assholes at their shitty excuse for customer service who's ineptitude occasionally results in the loss of $80 games after it fucks over your login info?Honestly, I dont like Steam much. And dont really know why I would post here...

-ninja edit-

It was worse once. Far worse. If you had non high-speed internet you where fucked. And the customer service has gotten slightly better. Slightly. Its not saying much, they are still a pile of assholes.

I'd totally be against steam if they didn't bribe me with snazzy trading cards and backgrounds. How could I resist the siren call of free 5 cent steam trading cards?!?
*Looks at steam library of 200+ games*
Or maybe not. :P

That said a note about offline mode, but you do need to boot up the very first time in online mode (so that it can verify you) and then I think you need to go back online for a moment or two every couple months or something similar.

Which makes it an issue when you are dealing with a desktop and internet that is apparently not enough for them.

If they do make a third Half-Life I'm not buying it. The second one was TERRIBLE!

Hey, perhaps we should stop talking about steam before we derail this thread to the point where it alerts The Great Toad.

I quite liked HL2. Seriously, this was before I even knew about Steam. Played it on...My Dad's comp, I think. Fucking loved it.

Anywho, yes. I'm done.

Today, I was terrified by the future. Too much decisions, too little time, too many consequences. I don't think I'll be able to get anything done. Almost everything I've done in my life is take the path of least resistance. Now when I need to be firm I can't.

I'll stop before this gets to ranty.
the future is the most terrifying thing I can think of

so +1

And using Linux, from what I know of Taw. Can't even run Steam. Nerd.
Fairly certain Linux can run Steam now. Steam even has an entire category in the store for finding games compatible with Linux.

I run steam on linux, and it works. I'm not terribly big on it - I find the DRM troubling. And those steam sales are dangerously seductive. Back, back I say! You shall not have my wallet today!

Today, I was terrified by the future.

Yeah, the future is pretty scary. It's a sneaky bastard, too...
