Very good game. Well worth 2.50 Hot from me

I've gone right off steam. I've found out that the game I've bought can't be upgraded to the latest version, so I can't play multi-player. Or rather, it can be upgraded if steam put the upgrade on their servers - but they just haven't bothered.

Buying from steam is not at all like buying the full game. It may be cheap, but that's because you're getting a cut-down product in many ways.

Surely you can get the update elsewhere, if its merely a game that steam sell?

That's a bit odd, as the fact that steam keeps track of updates is one of the reasons I like it. It's annoying to want to play an old game, fire it up and only then find you've a 3GB update waiting. I like steams pro active approach keeping everything up to date.

What's the game?

what game is it?
its up to the devs/publisher of the game to supply steam with the update
there is a post on steam forums that lists games that are not up to date in case you want to check out a game before you buy it
here it is, but it only up to date as far as 05-23-2009 ]http//fo…858

Men of War?

Yeah, steam's patching system really needs some flexibility in it (so do all of the digital distribution systems really but steam is one of the worst).

Still, at least it's not games for windows live and it's one month plus long patch approval system.

Valve's own games (LF4D, TFC, HL etc) are all easily patched but I can see how games from other companies can get caught up with niggles in patching.

That also includes Kingdoms, which is an addon and Steam want £14 in total for. That on its own is a hot deal!

For the pack, yes.

For Kingdoms on it's own - £4.99, bringing the combined price to £7.48. Not too bad if you want to pay the premium for I WANT IT NOW! (better than £14 anyway!)

Accidental Hot Deal - awesome! :thumbsup:

The one I got was Stalker, which works fine in single player mode, but Steam have not included the latest update - even though that was issued in early 2008! I'm pretty cross, actually, as I'd like to try the multi-player version and I don't really want to pay again to buy the game.


"its up to the devs/publisher of the game to supply steam with the update"
I don't see why Steam can't just download it like I did!
