    Default Steam Sale

    There have been some great game bargains in the Steam sale, the only problem is the bandwidth downloading the games is eating up my monthly allocation at a rapid rate. However in some cases they are almost giving the games away when you'd still pay a reasonable price for them in a New Zealand store.

    And Merry Xmas all.

    Bought "Battlefield 2: Complete Collection" but only Battlefield showed up on my account. Now they are stuffing me around.

    Had three games in one and got them all, no problems so far.

    Would like to confirm i can transfer files to a second computer without downloading again, haven't tried it yet.

    I should have known that an Xbox game ported to PC wouldn't be very good. Pity. I enjoyed Stranger's Wrath on Xbox

    I hate Steam, I'd rather buy a game on a CD, and without any DRM or online activation

    1) I know the disc will always be there and will always work, and if need be I can easily make a backup
    2) I know that no matter if the software company goes bust, I can still play the game
    3) Any patches which may be released can be downloaded and stored offline, avoiding any need to re-download in future.
    4) I don't need to install some crappy piece of software to waste even more system resources doing things which I can quite easily do for myself, better than it can.
    Non-system disk or disk error. Replace and strike any key when ready.

    Yes. But it isn't 100% reliable, sometimes the games end up broken... But it works most of the time.

    Just copy the Steam Apps folder across.
    The other computer may need to go online to claim 'ownership' of the apps.
