i thought that was common knowledge
Anyway, back on topic since AoG won't change anytime soon.
This game sucks: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Defenders_of_Ardania
And i'm a tower defense games fan.
No new sub forums in already low traffic forums please.
A 9:1 delete to add ratio seems pretty good to me. Everybody's happy, right?
The iOS version as actually pretty good.
Apparently, Paradox in their infinite wisdom has decided that any new releases will require Steam.
Pity, since EU4 was looking promising.
EDIT: Apparently Stardock has capitulated as well. The expansion for Fallen Enchantress will require Steam.
Perfect! Will make it so much easier to acquire them.
Not even gamers gate even though they own it?
Steam makes up the vast majority of their sales now, and I don't know about EU4, but CK2 and others can be run directly from the .exe file without launching Steam. I haven't tried it myself though.
Steam's auto-patching is getting annoying though.
I agree, auto-patching blows.
Not a fan of a company acquiring a near monopoly.
Steam's autopatching is why I generally acquire a less than legal version that I can keep at an older version if necessary (the STALKER games and EU3 being the two games I usually do this for, as most mods for STALKER (at least Shadow of Chernobyl) require version 1.0004 whereas Steam patches the game to 1.0005, and for EU3 I like having both a copy of 5.1 and 5.2)
Johan says they will fix that update issue.
Steam is good, y'all will see the light eventually.
Excellent news! Steam's existing "please don't patch my game" options don't work reliable or with every game.
Also, good news for those whom Steam's offline mode doesn't work reliable for, you don't have to run Steam to paly the game.
I guess it was inevitable with all the people getting issues with incompatible expansions and DLC bought in places other than Steam when they have the steam version. It really leaves studios with the only choices being to go either no selling on steam or steam-only. Kind of anti-competetive of Steam IMO. Though I really won't mind having the games on steam as long as they stay DRM-free.
Also I worry for the future of GamersGate now...
EU4 might use a new patching system in steam, where you can choose your patch version.
Edit: You can still buy from gamersgate - the steam keys.
They don't own it anymore. Gamersgate has been independent of Paradox for a while now.
Derp I'm not caught up on these things clearly
Looks like East vs West will have the coolest naval system ever!
Saw that the other day, I'm drooling as well!
I'm looking forward to EvW more than EUIV.
The USSR has bigger things to worry about in 1991 than new ships.
