You sure don't like that word, do you. I use it occasionally just to see if you'll reply, I picture you cringing each time you see it

Lol Nice to see the devs can even have a few laughs with the public too thats always a good sign

As for me, I rarely use steam, I bought the orange box and that obviously meant I needed steam, it annoyed me... I only use it now when I want to play Team Fortress, which these days isnt that much...

Me, well, I like to hold onto my property... that is one reason I always only buy boxed games. Another reason why I don't prefer monthly payments - It is like I never had the game anyway if I stop paying.

i kno theres quite a bit of angst with the more experienced gamers with steam because it can be vey annoying, but for some of us its an easy way of keeping our games, and when your living in a tiny box of a student room its quite hard to find space for all those disks.

I think it would be quite a good way of raising awareness because most of the people i game with have steam, and since i found out about this game ive been going on about it to them because for them the only games they normally buy are the ones advertised on steam, i think the catchment for the game would increase dramatically if it was promoted and sold on steam as well as in retail shops, market segmentation would be very usefull for this game because it reaches, from my perpective, a rts gamers dream and if its done through many distribution channels it will hit more of these people, i could realy see this game setting a new standard for rts games which boast real time game engines. could be a cult classic!

I'd like to see them sell through steam. Just not have to install the steam DRM to run the game.

you only have to install steam if it is a game requirement, e.g. if valve made the game, and since valve didnt u wont have to, but u can buy it through steam

Well for both ETW and Sup Com 2 I had to install and update through steam to run the game offline...the logic is staggering.

I agree that selling on Steam can only be a good thing, if optional, If it becomes a necessary then I think it will lose more customers than it will gain... Especially among the forums, from what I have seen over the time i have been here is that most players here are old school players and do everything the old way Its Great!!!
