Steam only after all? ...Another one bites the dust. x)
I followed the Elemental franchise since the beginning, so for a couple of years by now. War of Magic sounded just like the game for me, so i read myself through this forum, while it was developed. In the end, i didn't bought it for that same reason. It wasn't a suprise for me, that it didn't do well.
For Fallen Enchantress i had higher hopes. (Smart move to grab Kael.) Even high enough to buy it in an early Beta state. I didn't regret it. All in all, well done. And this expansion adresses some things i hoped for.
And yet, i won't start using Steam for it.
My personal problem with Steam isn't really the current state of it, just to put that out. Right now, Steam's biggest attribute is its convenience, which is a rather good thing. My problem is what Steam (so far very successfully) tries to become, and the likely effects that will bring, which are mostly quite bad.
Using Steam means supporting this, which just feels wrong to me. Might seem silly and/or stupid, but i can't help it.
And since a wise man in this forum once stated, that for every guy here with a problem, who bothers to write it down, there are another 1000 silent ones with the same; i thought i might as well be that one annoying guy.
Still a clear minority though, so i understand the desicion. It's business.
