Thread: Steam Sales 2012

    Re: Steam summer sale 2012

    agreed, even though uPlay is now not as awful as the original always-online incarnation, there is no reason to defend its existence. Steam already serves the intended purpose (online activation, locking the game to one account) so uPlay is just not needed at all. Sure it's far less of a nightmare than securom etc but that's saying a handful of shit is less gross than a mountain of shit. Less gross doesn't mean not gross.

    anyway, I just checked my transaction history on Steam, then checked my account on this website:

    http://www.steamcalculator.com/

    Since 2009 I've spent a bit under $500 on Steam games, and that includes the odd $50 pre-order every now and then. The steamcalculator website shows my account would be worth over $3,500 if I'd bought every game at the current full price (as of 2012, not the price when the game released - so I'm estimating closer to $4,000 if the release-date price is used).

    Hurray for Steam sales!

    You guys do realize that uPlay isn't technically the DRM platform. It's just a content distribution system. The DRM is wholey its own thing on a game-by-game/case-by-case basis.

    Also, the Steam servers themselves were barely able to distribute games during the Summer Sale. Why not point that out as well?

    Because you were still able to play the games you'd already installed, maybe in offline mode.

    What people are complaining about is that they'd bought uPlay games from Steam, installed them, then ended up unable to play due to requiring a completely unneeded authentication from uPlay.

    It is completely different from being unable to install games during the heavy load - that tends to be expected with any kind of downloading service. It's more like inserting a disc into your console to find that it's unplayable.

    Never had any problems installing any games off Steam during the sale, including massive ones like Just Cause 2.


    I think Metroid is a pretty cool guy, eh finds missiles and doesn't afraid of anything.

    Same

    I've had issues with Ubihard games though, so majority rules: the world does not revolve around freelancer.

    If you have problems downloading massive games during sales then just switch your download region.

    I usually have problems when I'm at home, but when I go to college things are a good bit quicker. It really depends on your Router/Modem/Connection speed rather than your region (considering how traffic intensive college is versus home).
