Steam!

I am going to assume the majority of you know what steam is, but do you know what steam I am talking about? yes, the program steam, not steam steam. Do you ever just get super tired of steam? I mean honestly I hate steam sometimes, I try to install a game and instead of using my disks, it just downloads it and takes 3 times as long. Any game that also requires "windows live" or any other kinda bull crap like that is just annoying sometimes. Yes Steam and Windows Live do have some cool stuff, but the majority of the time they make it straight up annoying.

Like I tried playing Dawn of War 2 offline, my internet was out, and windows live kept on demanding I make an account online. So after 15 minutes of frustration it finally let me log in, offline. One helpful thing I did notice with Steam was being able to search for games, not buy them, just search. Seeing whats new coming out and such like. Also the ability to re-install your games via internet on any computer as long as you long in to your steam account. This actually has been helpful the many times I reformatted my computer, from XP to vista back to XP to Windows 7.

Tell me, you ever have any really bad or really frustrating times with Steam or a program like it?

  1. Long time Steam user here. Never had problem with them, my account probably has 1000 bucks worth of games and add-ons. By-far the D2D service out there.

  6. I know what you mean. I reinstalled my Windows recently and when I inserted the Orange Box discs to install Team Fortress 2, they couldn't be read at all for some reason and I had to wait 3 hours for the game to be downloaded.
