    This all seems rather stupid, correct if im wrong here (no doubt am) but isn't it illegal/frowned upon to do this sort of thing, ie, forcing consumers into installing a particular service to play the game? But either way, steam is and probably always will be the best online game distribution service for quite a long time.

    I can see their point though as it does limit the need to go outside of steam.

    *draws parallel with forced DRM*

    Still an interesting move though.

    STEAM is bullshit, yet slightly easier to pirate from/through :wtf:

    Steam is just dandy if you don't mind using your credit card to buy games online.

    I have no hard time understanding why they refuse to sell it when it comes with Steamworks copy protection, but I fail to understand why it would matter.

    Either you buy it through Steam or you buy a retail copy - it's as simple as that.

    *looks at his last remanent disc* and agreed, d2d is doing the right thing in my eyes. it's so irritating to install steam and in the end, my game was bind to just 1 account, and what if i forgotten my account? then i'm screwed.
