    I love Steam, so *shrug*. It makes setting up and joining multiplayer games easy as pie.

    Yeah, just a disc would be a nice change. Having to install a bunch of other crapware to play a game is not going to fly.

    Off line has been garbage.
    Look at my sig.
    The last time I was on steam was to make sure online worked, because after almost 1Gb of downloading data (I had the retail discs) Off line still did not work.
    The last real time I was on Steam for multi gamming was 2005 (Half Life 2).

    This.

    Or, you know, they could code it into the application themselves, they could use Impulse Reactor's no-middleware approach or you could just use XFire.

    Huh? My copy of Civilization V installed just fine off the disc through Steam - of course I mainly got it on disc because it was more than 10€ cheaper than on Steam, not because I didn't have the means to download it... :lol:

    There's no alternative to this, but sadly I haven't seen it since Borderlands...

    The more i hear about this game, the more i belive it to be a mediocre Console shooter, and one really ****ty Console port for the PC.

    So yeah, exactly what we've come to expect of Epic :(

    Flak posted in a now locked thread that those are rumors/speculation and that we should not worry. So, I don't know what is up with this.

    First and last time I used GFWL was with batman.
    What I remember is having to launch and relaunch the game 5 times because GFWL needed to update and closed the game each time... :/

    LOL.
    Going to be funny if the ISP's start making people pay for the right to download from Steam.
    Ditto for GFWL, and any other platform.

    Unfortunately i'm still using it with Dawn of War II. 6 times on 10 i'm stuck after i click "campaign" because GFWL lose connection and simply stop everything except the mouse pointer. Even when clicking on the red X does nothing and since i know it's going to stay like this for several minutes my only option is to CTRL+ALT+DEL and kill the process, because alt+enter, alt+tab and windows key doesn't work either.

    Just because a game has Epic's stamp on it doesn't mean it has to be praised irrational by Beyondunreal or that it's gonna be awesome, and moves like GFWL shouldn't surprise you. Epic did sell out to the consoles long ago and they did it with much honor and pride. It's not the same company we used to adore and love 12 years ago

    You're lying, you're on the dark side.
    Hope this is a hoax like Flak said anyway.
