I am a steam user and I do have a few comments on this comment: 1. If you set steam to offline mode, then the reminder shows up every time you boot your computer, regardless of your settings 2. I rename/delete the movie file that plays when the game is launched. Its so horrible I would rather stare at a blank screen. Whenever I connect to steam, it sees the movie file is missing and proceeds to download it again. Is there a way to turn off this intrusive detail? Autopatching, while useful, becomes a nuisance when you can't turn it off.
