Children of Steam #1

The straw that broke a thousand hearts.

Read Full Article

Oh god. Semi-Parody time.

I wouldn't be in too bad shape if Steam shutdown myself. I'm not a PC gamer.

But I did buy the Telltale complete collection during the '09 Holiday sale. So, I'd still be pissed as hell that all of those games are gone. I've invested about $200-$300 in Steam.

Good Lord! I wonder where they shall go with this series of unfortunate events!

I will watch them most attentively!

*stare*

NEWEL IS STILL A FAT BASTARD!

If they shut down steam..... I won't be effected at all. =) Truthfully I would love to get a steam account, but there are some hurdles. My PC is old and won't run most new games, and my laptop is Mac. Steam does not yet have many Mac games on it, when it does ill get it.

So is the fat guy the director of Valve?

I'd be all right if Steam closed for a while. I do most of my gaming on consoles. But still, that would be pretty bad...

Meh... Steam, Schmeam.
Asides from a couple of stupid titles that DEMAND I remain connected to the Steam (even if I have the actual factual retail discs) I wouldn't be affected (and that is the reason we have cracks).
Most'a my games are from GamersGate or GOG anyways.

Steam has a section of mac games, also it would suck for steam to die because awesome indie games are on it and the sales they do vacuum money from my wallet at a rate of shrug, feels like I'm blowing money, and then I realized I got game after game for less than one console title.

O the humanity!!

I can't decide if I find this hilarious or horrifying...

This is partially why I refuse to pay more that $10 per game on Steam. If it goes boom I'm not out a whole lot of money.

edthehyena:

Horrifying. Definitely horrifying.

And this is why I always make sure to have some cracks for my games handy. Because if worst comes to worst, I'll still be able to play the games I bought.

Daemascus:
O the humanity!!

This feels especially appropriate.

I have 99 games on my steam account (Still waiting for which game to be number 100 - it has to be good).. Guessing i've spend like 6000 Danish Kroner (~1000 USD) on my account, if steam closed it would be known as the greatest depression.

When legitimate customers envy pirates not just for the price (free and stolen) but for the simple functionality of the product in comparison to what they paid for, something is very, very wrong.

Yeah?! Well he's still fucking your *insert family member you're most protective of here*!

OT: Bastards, I knew all those mean jokes were keeping Episode 3 back!

They have a patch ready if Steam ever shut down.)

See thats what I thought too, but those 5/10/15 dollar games add up fast. If steam were to go down for good, I would have nothing to show for a bit of money. Besides, cept for going back to replay games or for the multiplayer bits, wouldn't quite be the end of the gaming world for me.

Would still rage pretty badly, Losing things permanently is never fun.

Damn it, don't give them any ideas!

Steam has lots of games from years gone by, including a host of Sega Genesis titles and a lot of the old-style adventure games that probably ran on Windows 3.1. I doubt your PC couldn't find a few games to love from Steam.

I would be pretty hard out if Steam went down. I've invested a least a thousand dollars in Steam and I will never buy a Steam game unless it is at least 33% off because I have always felt that video games are 33% more expensive than they ought to be.

Steam...

Down...

Ughhh, the very idea is scary for this poor soul with over 60 steam games. Admittedly most of them were sales, but that's still a big chunk of change now down the drain.

SO Gabe's computer is called "Punishment"? bizarre.

Steve Fidler:

At least with that math you are guaranteed to come out ahead.
If games are 33% too expensive, you'd only need a price reduction of 25%.

Seeing that picture and his reaction was so priceless. I love this comic.

I wouldn't have lost too much money if Steam goes down. The most expensive thing I've bought is Killing Floor for $20. Other than that I bought everything incredibly cheap (Half-Life: Source for $2.50 and Oblivion GOTYD for $8.50). Anything else I have on there was a gift (Indie Game Bundles) or were free (Alien Swarm). So I wouldn't mind that much.

Meh my laptop fails at loading and playing most games on Steam and all my gaming is done on consoles anyway, you ever try and play an FPS with a laptop mouse touchpad thingy? It takes true dedication good sir

"99 games" And a bitch ai*gunshot*

Oh god....that would be terrible. And now you need to tell me that it IS just a coincidence that there is a steam client update downloading right now.

DON'T GIVE HIM ANY IDEAS! I don't think I could take it, honestly. All my gaming purchases are on Steam. I would be forced to game on a console!*

*This is not, however a dig at consoles. I simply prefer PC gaming. I still play all the console exclusives. Don't flame me, bro!

The detail you are all missing is I'm pretty sure authentification is not a word, and if it is, it is completely the wrong word to use in that situation.

I've often wondered what happens if Steam was to close. Would they release DRM removal kits to everyone before they closed, freeing up the games. Or would they hide behind legal stuff and try get out and leave us all to go online and look for cracks ourself.

My hurdle is that you can use PayPal, but then you have to use a Credit Card anway. What the Fuck?

If Steam had a Linux port, I would greatly enjoy it and would be sad if they took it down. But alas, that day has yet to come.

You hear that, Valve? Linux port, please!

Google --> Steam crack --> Download --> Scan with over 9001 antivirus programs --> Install --> Not out of any of my Steam games. I'm not worried about Steam shutting down or going dark at all.
