Just a remark for anyone who has the steam offline mode couldn't not connect to server error.
Even though your starting in offline mode it will try to connect if there is a network availble(ak hamachi, nonfunctional network) . Deactivating those fixed the problem for me.

I might be wrong though, I haven't really tested it.

I didn't have Hamachi at the time that was going on. Like I said, though, they explicitly stated fixing that in one of the Steam updates, and after testing it out with a pal, they really had.

Hm... it would be cool if publishers sent out patches removing DRM a couple weeks or a month after release (in fact I know that Egosoft has sold DRM-free re-releases of their games).

Of course, the people who waited ten days to pirate it still got a "better" game.

I'm not playing Diablo 3, because they forbid modding in its terms of service.  I'll wait for Torchlight 2.  If it sucks, mods will fix that.  If I get bored of it, mods will fix that.
