  1. In my experience that's really not the case,...

    In my experience that's really not the case, though. If there's a big sale on steam for example you usually get the same discount regardless if you buy the whole pack or individual DLCs - or at least...
  2. That guide makes one crucial mistake, though,...

    That guide makes one crucial mistake, though, which is: Not listing Sons of Abraham as completely and utterly mandatory, since it's the bestest best thing ever! CK2 simply isn't the same without the...
  3. I'd say its pretty obvious that this isn't about...

    I'd say its pretty obvious that this isn't about a pricing dispute or that GMG was allegedly trying to get a discount deal. This is about CDP trying to artificially limit the amount of Steam keys,...
  4. That's an utterly terrible thing to do, though!...

    That's an utterly terrible thing to do, though! Not everyone wants to play a game in their language and you should never, ever force people to jump through hoops or pay a premium to play the original...
  5. In my case i am willing to openly admit that i'm...

    In my case i am willing to openly admit that i'm simply HEAVILY biased against GoG and that they'll have to bend over backwards and get in all kinds of uncomfortable positions before i take them from...
  6. Correct, those and any other DRM-Free/Launcher...

    Correct, those and any other DRM-Free/Launcher Free title on Steam can be copied anywhere on your HD and run without Steam check-in, without Steam running or without Steam being installed on the...
  7. Yeah, let's not get into the whole discussion...

    Yeah, let's not get into the whole discussion about which one would be easier to pirate, since that tends to become silly rather quickly. But I do have to point out that pretty much any game that you...
  8. I think it depends on how much use of the steam...

    I think it depends on how much use of the steam api any particular game makes, but Steam's DRM in general is laughably easy to remove - In some cases you can actually convince games to start by...
  9. No, i'm 99.9% sure that Valve can't force...

    No, i'm 99.9% sure that Valve can't force developers to do that. It's because CDP are hypocrites, it's as simple as that.
  10. That's essentially correct, yes! And that's...

    That's essentially correct, yes!
    And that's definitely something that i wouldn't even dare to try and sugarcoat since it's a pretty shitty way of handling it (like i said, their backup system is...
  11. Because even launcher free games (games that...

    Because even launcher free games (games that don't require steam to be running and start by simply using the exe) can make use of those features just fine! CK2 has achievements, mods, even...
  12. Decided to test that with a small game out of...

    Decided to test that with a small game out of curiosity and the result is that it sadly doesn't work. Neither the clunky backup or my prefered method of simply copying the game folder and trying to...

    Sticky: I'm playing System Shock 2 for the first time at...

    I'm playing System Shock 2 for the first time at the moment and i guess i'm anywhere between halfway and three-and-a-half-quarters of the way through (on my way to the rickenbacker at the moment)....

    What i'm curious to see is if CDP once again takes the path of hypocrisy. So far their stance on DRM was pure PR bullshit and the only DRM free versions you can buy of their games is in their own...

    Sticky: What made it a fairly terrible game in my opinion...

    What made it a fairly terrible game in my opinion is the fact that what you describe is only really possible once you already know the levels or only works when you actually play the time trial...
  16. I'd be perfectly fine with Steam staying a...

    I'd be perfectly fine with Steam staying a dominant platform since valve as an entity seems way too scatterbrained to even be able to turn evil. What i do mind is them having as much of a monopoly as...
  17. Why would you deliberately chose not to get the...

    Why would you deliberately chose not to get the steam version in this case? How is owning CK2 on steam any different than owning it somewhere else? Granted, you do have to use the program to download...

    The consensus seems to be that they're "very different", with or without the dlc - so different in fact that it would lead to the old apples vs oranges situation (spoiler: oranges>apples). Seems like...

    I've posted a reddit link to an explanation of the problem and an easy fix for this on the second page of this thread - But here's the link again if you're interested. There's a way that doesn't use...

    Looks like heatshields are still "a bit" buggy in this release, so here's today's PSA: Small heatshields currently don't affect the center of mass! !!FUN!! will be had!

    So if your pods...
  21. Technically that's true, but since the steam...

    Technically that's true, but since the steam version is DRM- and launcher-free (meaning that steam doesn't care at all what you do with the files once they're downloaded and doesn't need to run to...

    There'll also be at least a third option since they're also going to release a GoG version tomorrow (afaik)! But in this case it really doesn't matter which version you pick up since they're all DRM...

    Yep, exactly the point i was trying to make earlier - less eloquently, though!

    Quote from the very start of the GoG EULA, and pretty much the standard blurb in any software eula:

    Path of Exile - After playing it for a silly amount of hours (>1000 according to steam...yikes) and spending most of those silly hours in the various hardcore leagues (which is the way its ment to be...

    From a legal perspective there's no difference, though, is there? While DRM-Free makes it easier to give your games away, or share them with family members you're still breaking the Terms of Service...
