Yes.
#3
cheap was about to post the link!
#4
When I do add to cart I just get a blank screen - anyone else tried?
#5
found following post on steam forum for anyone else struggling - worked for me..

I have a fix for the buying issue!

Login to the Steam Store with your Steam Account using you Webbrowser!
Then just add the game to your cart, click on the cart logo and you will see the known blank white screen.
Now change the web adress from http://store.steampowered.com/cart/ to http://store.steampowered.com/checkout/ and you will be able to proceed with the shopping process like normal.

I just bought TR:A that way a minute ago.
But as far as i saw it, you won't be able to make gifts, only buy it for yourself.

Have Fun!

Sorry, I just had to vote cold.I will never support the idea of steam (hiring software with no right to re-sell + the compulsory spyware on your computer)

It's not about the game,not about op, not about the forum.
I hope, someone will finally ban the scum/steam.
#7
What Spyware?

Reselling PC games is silly anyway, most of them require a CD key to play which can only be used once (For online games anyway), plus they have next to no value for resale due to the ease of piracy. Steam is useful, especially for older games which are hard to find anywhere these days. (Try finding the Oddworld games on PC for example)

Hiring software with no right to sell? Doesn't that describe ALL paid for software? It's just that with steam you don't have the ability to sell it.

And it's not spyware at all. If you don't have steam running there is no hidden program running in the background. Of course, VAC scans for cheats when you play games which I'm sure most people are grateful for (I certainly am!).

Steam isn't spyware, and you're not hiring anything. Valve have said in the past that, if for some reason things were to go wrong for them and they'd have to cease the Steam service (which doesn't seem likely to happen), they'd release a patch which removes necessary authentication so that the games can be played without needing to check-in with the Steam servers. Obviously whether they'd actually do it or not is unknown, but Steam is by far the most popular digital distribution system for games so its future seems pretty safe.

Good game for this price. I preferred Legend myself, although maybe that's because I played the original when it came out and in some ways it feels like the camera problems haven't changed since then.

You do perfectly know what spyware.You have got no idea and no control over what the compulsory software scan on your computer.Have you ever tried to complain on steam's procedures????This is NOT normal company and you,by installing the s&&& on your PC let them do whatever they want.

Why silly, because they want you to think so?Is buying used books silly too?
If somebody wants to use second-hand items why should be restrained to do so?To maximise profits of developers?

Errrr. Not Quite. The new 'On Live' service which should start at the end of the year may see the end Steam. I don't know enough about pc games distribution to say for sure but it's certainly a possibility.

Hot. Just came across this on Steam a few mins ago :)

Just purchassed nowt wrong with steam I only buy reduced games on there now anyway

If you buy games from a shop they have CD keys too hence why reselling them is not possible. There's a reason you can't rent PC games from most places, due to piracy, it's the same reason you get a pittance for most PC games you trade in (and AFAIK GAME don't let you trade in PC games, I wonder why...)

Steam is NOT spyware, there's nothing wrong with it. If you put your tin foil hat away for half a second you'd realise this. Don't tell me I don't know what I'm talking about, I'm currently doing a Computer Science degree, so I'd imagine I'd know a tad more about computers than it seems you do.
#17
I used to hate steam - more software on the PC that at first glance seems unwarranted. But, it is much much easier to reinstall your games after a reformat, or if you change PCs. No need for disks, just need your logon and password.

It would be nice if you could sell games or pass them on, but still.
#18
I love steam personally the fact you can play all games via 1 gaming tab and the latest updates are always applied. The other great thing is that if you reformat steam has the option to backup and compress all your games to a small file to be burned or stored on hard drive.

I have only bought a few games on there when they have been discounted and had no problems whatsoever.

To the other guy who keeps talking about spyware seriously all this conspiracy stuff 'ooooh spyware there scanning my pc' what are you scared of? what do you have on your pc that you think valve would be interested in?? lol
#19
Strikes me it's perfectly normal to sell on a game at a reduced price - same as any other DVD,CD,Console game etc - fair play that some people are annoyed that they can't

I luv these weekend offers, thanks to this very forum I have a disk full of games. Stop knocking steam people, games of the future will all be uploaded rather than burnt to tin foil on a plastic saucer with a hole in the middle .:p

Errrr. Not Quite. The new 'On Live' service which should start at the end of the year may see the end Steam. I don't know enough about pc games distribution to say for sure but it's certainly a possibility.


Unlikely really, I'm sceptical about OnLive to say the least; I simply can't see how they're going to deliver what they're promising over current broadband networks, and even their server farms are going to have to be massively powerful to process everything. Steam will still provide the more preferable experience, especially if you've got the hardware yourself.

Moore's law states you are wrong. I guess you will not be alone in being wrong Bill Gates did once say "'640K should be enough for anybody!'"

The technology may be there, but Moore's law says nothing about *access* to the technology. How many places do you know with rubbish internet connectivity, for example?

Moore's law says nothing about OnLive, so I'm not sure what your point is.

I'm not saying it isn't feasible (it obviously is), but with current technology? Not a chance, they're promising far too much. It'll take a long while before it's accessible and reliable enough to be a decent alternative to gaming on a low or mod-range PC. The people that want the better experience and the superior visuals (and let's face it, that's the single major benefit with PC gaming) will buy the proper games and play them with their own hardware.

I am genuinely impressed :lol: .Have you ever tried to understand something more than the poor efforts of academics?I have got two degrees to your info.
Do not accuse me of being closed-minded, just because you do want to accept certain changes having no idea of consequences.Yep,that's right,follow, don't lead.

The more people like you, the sooner we will not be able to resell the books,...and cars...and later houses...I know, just now it seems stupid but the reasons behind it would be exactly the same like behind the bloody steam.

Nobody answered question - have you ever tried to complain on steam procedures???I did...this is not normal business!...and you want to give them access to your Personal Computer.

So what? Why I should not be allowed to resell the game with the key, my car has dedicated key too.What's the problem, because someone wants me to buy a brand new ?I do not want to.

I'm not complaining or anything but the US gets this for $5! How is that £3.50?

The future is not software on CD's or DVD.

For the past 20 years I have worked with computers and learnt to never say never. Programming has become sloppy over the past decade. Back in the days of DOS and machine code (binary) programmers coded much cleaner code. Donkey Kong and Pacman for example are just a few KB in Size, this would have been smaller had they had the power of Java.

With regards to the internet you get what you pay for. As with most things in life. The Majority I admit have rubbish subscriptions for internet access. But they are the ones who signed up for the subscription so they only have themselves to blame.

Steam will have to keep service level to a reasonable level to service the accounts they have, but it is wrong to surmise this is impossible as they will simply buy more kit to match the subscriptions they have.

BTW the net would be faster if the 80% of people were not uploading illegally meterial. I believe the weekend deals offered by steam are amazing value and which people who know little about computers would stop moaning. I recall the people who said ebay and amazon would never work.

thats my 2p worth

WIKI

Moore's law describes a long-term trend in the history of computing hardware. Since the invention of the integrated circuit in 1958, the number of transistors that can be placed inexpensively on an integrated circuit has increased exponentially, doubling approximately every two years.[1] The trend was first observed by Intel co-founder Gordon E. Moore in a 1965 paper.[2][3][4] It has continued for almost half a century and in 2005 was not expected to stop for another decade at least.[5]

Almost every measure of the capabilities of digital electronic devices is strongly linked to Moore's law: processing speed, memory capacity, even the number and size of pixels in digital cameras.[6] All of these are improving at (roughly) exponential rates as well.[7] This has dramatically increased the usefulness of digital electronics in nearly every segment of the world economy.[8] Moore's law describes this driving force of technological and social change in the late 20th and early 21st centuries.

I suggest the guy who founded Intel is moore of an expert than us!

http://www.joystiq.com/2009/04/05/steam-selling-tomb-raider-anniversary-for-5/


Based upon yesterday's paypal rates of $1.44 = £1

so $5 is about £3.47

Because most games that have online features have the key linked to one account only making it impossible for someone else to use it. Your problem is not with steam it's with the companies that make the games.

And as I said earlier, try and find a copy of both Oddworld games for PC, either new or unused that work fine on Vista, you most likely won't be able to, on Steam they're really cheap so I don't see why you'd want to sell them on either.

And to your above post, do you mean complain about Steam? I've not done it because I've not needed to, the software is fine and all games have worked perfectly for me.

You haven't said why you think there's spyware on there and yet no one else seems to think so?

Here's a good article from EuroGamer that looks at why OnLive can't work with current limitations:
http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/gdc-why-onlive-cant-possibly-work-article

Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying that it's impossible for it to ever work or that digital distribution won't continue to become more and more popular, my point is that these things are not going to become feasible or mainstream for a long time yet. OnLive relies on transmitting a hell of a lot of data very quickly and at low latency, so it's going to be very susceptible to interruption. Online gaming (which only transmits a small amount of data) is already susceptible enough to lag spikes so OnLive is going to suffer immensely. Even then, it's still only offering a mid-range gaming experience; their systems aren't going to be powerful enough to process a game at high details and a high resolution and the internet connections definitely aren't going to be quick enough to transmit it.
#33
The voice - You are talking about just OnLive which is here nor there. I am talking about the future of the industry, At the moment games are written so they can be run local, nobody tries to compress the data. As I mentioned earlier when you look at how Java is run over the net things could be different in the future process threads would be very small. You are applying current standards and rules to the future which is the wrong way of looking at it.

Back on topic Steam offers really good value for those picking up the weekend specials
#34
Well given that the discussion started with someone saying that OnLive would kill Steam, I'd say it is fairly relevant.
#35
Ive been with steam since the VERY start. I support it :)
