Fathom Zero I downloaded a copy of Borderlands and applied the crack to the Securom BS, playing it for about twenty minutes just now.

I found that my computer runs it very nicely, better than Left 4 Dead 2 as a matter of fact. Given that there is no demo and recommended specs count for nothing when judging whether or not a game can run, I would not be buying the game otherwise.

Because I downloaded an illicit copy and got to actually see how well it runs, I am now buying the game. :hat

Microshock Oh, you're still on that shit. Yeah I see everyone's noticing that you're trying to ignore me
Sep 10th, 2009 10:38 PM
Tadao spoooooooooooooooooooooooooooky
Sep 10th, 2009 10:37 PM
Microshock I bought it because they had some kind of weld feature so you can weld doors to keep the zombies out, but it's such a stupid part of the game.

DougClayton4231 Is Killing Floor really that bad? I never tried it due to the fact that it looked like a game from 2005. My only issue with steam is when games magically become "unavailable" at random. I want to play HL2 goddamn it!
Sep 10th, 2009 05:28 PM
Fathom Zero It uses whatever Unreal Engine that 2004 used, so I could only assume it is dated.
Sep 10th, 2009 04:50 PM
Microshock I played Killing Floor with all my friends, and we shortly stopped playing after that. I don't think it's a good game, plus it looks outdated

I do because the opt-out hasn't worked for me in the past, and also because when I say that a patch Steam forces you to download can break a game, I'm speaking from personal experience.

Fathom Zero The onus is on the developer to make the patch work right, otherwise, if it's Valve's fault, Steam updates itself regularly enough anyway to be annoying to me.

Dr. Boogie I don't really sell any of the games I own, but it's nice being able to buy used copies when the original isn't on sale.

If they would implement a way for people to sell their licenses for games for however much they wanted to charge, that would be a step in the right direction.

I have to say as much as i hated the idea of steam when hl2 came out, it is pretty outstanding. Just having the ability to download any of the games tied to your account at any time is great. No more cds or product keys to worry about. In fact it would be fantastic to have it for software, movies and music too.

but i still prefer not paying for something over paying for it.

MattJack PS PROTIPZ:

Open Steam, click the My games tab, then simply right click the Killing Floor icon, and finally choose DELETE LOCAL CONTENT.

You're right. How could such a pile of garbage be fun at all with your friends?



If you got that butt hurt over a game that cost $14.99 for weeks then I don't know what to tell you man.
Sep 9th, 2009 09:00 PM
Tadao I have DSL, I just happen to be downloading a constant stream of Brazilian fart porn at the same time.
Sep 9th, 2009 08:57 PM
Chojin yeah, i can't recommend steam for ISDN users

DIRECTOR'S CUT: or just burn the appropriate steamapps folder to a DVD if you'd rather have a disc

OR: do the same thing over your network and install about 10 copies of a game at once without queering around with dvd drives
Sep 9th, 2009 08:56 PM
Tadao I think you pay for a faster internet connection than I do. To reinstall COD W@W has taken the better part of a day from steam.
Sep 9th, 2009 08:52 PM
Chojin Steam is great. My preference generally goes like this:

1. Steam
2. Piracy
3. Retail

Steam is just way too convenient and fast, and retail is too cumbersome and up its own ass with anti-piracy shit. I also really appreciate that I can just delete games to save HD space or reformat and just get them again in a few minutes later. Or that I can go to a friend's house and let him demo a game on my account. Or share an account with a few friends for single-player games. OH NO I HAVE TO START STEAM TO PLAY GAMES I MEAN I ALSO RUN ABOUT 1,000 OTHER SERVICES BUT STEAM HAS THE DECENCY TO SHOW UP IN MY SYS TRAY AND THAT MAKES MY GAY SELF ANGRY

GUYS STEAM IS USING 40 MEGS OF RAM RIGHT NOW
THAT IS 40 MEGS I WILL NEVER GET BACK
OUT OF MY 4,000
I MEAN MY IM CLIENT USES TWICE AS MUCH, BUT I AM ON THE INTERNET AND I HAVE OBNOXIOUS UNINFORMED OPINIONS FOR YOU TO HEAR

WHY CAN'T I SELL MY DOWNLOADED GAMES THIS IS OUTRAGEOUS
LET ME GET MY RIGHTFUL $2.50 + SHIPPING YOU NAGGERS
Sep 9th, 2009 08:38 PM
Tadao I keep hearing whispers in here. As if someone is trying to be heard, but they died a long time ago. Spoooooooky
Sep 9th, 2009 08:32 PM
Microshock Killing Floor is a pile of garbage, and you know what I can do with it now? Nothing. It sits there, I can't even "hide" it off the games list.

I know impulse is better, and that they're trying to find a way to let you sell games. If they do that, and let you trade it around, then wow that'd be great
Sep 9th, 2009 07:52 PM
Tadao I read that before and it instantly reminded me of Quake 3. How do they know who has the legit account? I hope it's not because games are registered with a series of unobtainable numbers and letters. That didn't work for Id when people made keygens and a ton of people who actually bought the game ould no longer play it. It became a real big mess.

Sep 9th, 2009 06:09 PM
Tadao Yeah, that's Docs point I think. They have made it too unfriendly to the point were no one wants to buy a new more pricey game from them any more.
Sep 9th, 2009 05:56 PM
Fathom Zero I buy shit from them when it's on sale and maybe some little one-off indie games that I couldn't give a fuck about after I play them once, anyway.
Sep 9th, 2009 05:47 PM
Tadao

Steam may not exactly be on its way out right now, but if it ever does, and you want to play a Steam game, you're SOL. Your only option will be to wait and see if the pirates will come up with a way around it, or otherwise just download a new warez copy.
I've had tons of problems with not bieng to play COD : W@W because steam won't figure out how to give us the patch till 1 and 1/2 a week after. There is a way though, if you go into your reg, you can change (Digital Distribution) to something else, I forget, maybe something other than steam. Then you can apply the patch and download the newest nocd crack for that patch. I know it sucks, but fuck man, whatchagonnado other than never buy from them again ever, which is what I decided to do.
