Thought this was a great deal, and especially well priced considering the price of new releases digitally are normally higher than retail on Steam. Perhaps this indicates the shift from retail to digital delivery.


You get both games, Bioshock 1 and 2 for £26.99, and Bioshock 1 is immediately downloadable and playable after purchase. Bioshock 2 unlocks after 3 weeks. If you already have Bioshock, you can gift it to somebody else.

If you can get 3 other buddies, or you're feeling particularly generous, you can get the 4 pack, which includes 4 copies of Bioshock 1, that you can gift to others, so same as the single deal, but £7 cheaper.

3 friends to split get you £20 plus Bioshock 1, if you dont own the first one you save up to £10.

£26.99 - £20.25 = 6.74
Bioshock 1 = 9.99 Retail (previously £3.49 http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/572964/steam-24hrs-bioshock-3-49-gta-iv-4-)

There’s also some fun DRM. Online verification via SecuRom, with an install limit (15 machines, admittedly). To save the game or play online, you need to be logged into Games for Window Live. This still applies on Steam – so SecuRom and Games For Windows Live are needed in addition to the Steam client. Hmm.

I've been reading up on this, and it appears the Steam info is wrong. Securom should only be on the retail edition and even then should only consist of a disc validation check (No activation limits). In my opinion, a reason not to go retail...when will they learn....

Nothing wrong with Games for Windows Live, you can create an offline profile to save games. It's not as bad as it used to be, and is largely unobtrusive, once first configured.

I dont really like to add another program just to play plus i cant see what server my friends are playing on Steam,another thing is that people can purchase the game itself but GWL only available on some countries so online game is pointless for them plus single player i think not sure

I understand what you're saying Ionfar, but think of it this way. Traditionally all games with a multiplayer component had to design their own interface to handle friends list/matchmaking etc. GFWL makes this area easier for developers to create, as there are bits of code that can just be added on top. Thus allowing them to spend more time on the actual game. Kind of like how Steam games work, but no way as good.

When you install games with any online component, you're installing yet another program with similar functionality to GFWL. The only difference GFWL being an overlay rather than integrated directly. So many games use this nowadays, choosing to avoid it is like saying you'll avoid all Valve games because they use Steam.

Oh no, not Windows Live!! I had no end of trouble with that **** when I tried to play Halo 2. It wouldn't save any games, I always had to restart at the beginning of a level. I'm not buying it if that's the case, which is a shame as I really enjoyed the first one.

I'm going to wait before I buy this one.

Last time out I (and many many others) had awful problems trying to install it. Basically during the install process it looked to see if there were any patches available. On some machines it couldn't connect to the server so the installation process just quit out. Years later and they still haven't fixed this bug. Google throws up this: http://www.google.co.uk/search?hl=en&source=hp&q=bioshock+autopatcher&meta=&aq=1&oq=bioshock+aut

The only way I could get it installed was when the autopatcher tried to connect I had to copy the Bioshock folder to another folder before the installer deleted it, then download a nocd crack. Pointless spending money on a legit copy if you cant use it.

DRM is killing PC gaming.

Not buying anything off Steam again. I downloaded Splinter Cell Double Agent and it was faulty. I contacted them about this and they gave me no response other than to point in the direction of the forum I had already visited. I asked for my money back and got nothing. I'm still fuming about it but there's nothing I can do. Maybe I should set up some watchdog for the computer games industry. ******* ******s!!!

Steam isn't perfect, and I don't see windows live as perfect because everything will have bugs from time to time. It's just a case of waiting for updates!
