Must be terrible not having an internet connection.
Everyone needs to chill out a bit, yes A3 is coming on steam, stop the press! So?? Big deal, they have changed their distribution methods and maybe implemented a few steam-friendly features but the underlying game will be the same because it is using the Real Virtuality Engine. You can still create mods, you can still play online how you used too, just maybe the way you retrieve the servers is different. A lot of people are seriously acting like this is the biggest issue since they discovered they were glued to their computer chair due to lack of movement. There is 2 options, buy A3 or don't. Literally as simple as that, if you don't want to buy it I (the community and most probably BI) don't want to hear about it because its annoying that every 2 minutes a thread pops up about how wa*k or sh*t Steam is and how your going to boycott it! Great, then don't post stop looking for attention and a reaction and just leave the forums, close your account, go and do whatever you do in your steam-free life. The world is going cloud, web and mobile enabled so if your not happy to accept where gaming is going then, and im going to quote star wars, you need to go home and rethink you life. You all have an internet connection because im pretty sure you are all part of the 2,405,518,376 (June 30, 2012) on our planet that do so why is it such a problem to use steam? It is centralized content management and from a developers point of view is very very good! The only issue I can see is that if you live on a military camp as the firewalls they have may block steam, but there is so much technology on this planet that can give internet to you anywhere and any geo location on this earth. IMO and im sure im not alone, your moaning because you can. Simple, you don't like A3 on steam, then leave this section of the forums. :)
