Steam, The Ultimate Online Game Platform
« on: May 03, 2009, 11:51:34 AM »
What is STEAM?

Steam allows users to purchase computer games entirely digitally. Instead of receiving a box, disc, or even CD key, purchased software is immediately attached on the Steam servers to the user's free Steam account, from which it can be downloaded and used on any internet-
connected computer that allows the Steam client to be installed.

660+ games are available on Steam and over 20 million gamers use the service

What makes steam so appealing?

*The games you buy are patched automatically.
*Doesn't require discs.
*Should your computer crash, Steams keeps all your games so you can just re-install on another PC with the latest patches and serials intact automagically.
*Avoid the risk of infecting your PC with a virus as a result of downloading hacks and cracks.
*Avoid cheaters by playing online against gamers using legitimate unmodified versions of the games

Sales and Special Offers

Occasionally they have big discounts on games. Allowing you to grab some titles for cheap. Berzerk alerted us to a 40% off promotion on Left 4 Dead. That special deal takes the price of the game down to $23.99 from its usual $39.99. Great deal on a great game.

ATI and Nvidia both offer free games to gamers on the steam service.

The software checks your machine and once it confirms you have an ATI or Nvidia card, you can download and play the games, for free. No catch.

Peggle, a popular PopCap puzzle game is also available for free to all Steam users.

How to buy games from STEAM?

You can purchase games online from steam using a Credit Card

Don't have one? No problem. Thanks to Republic Bank, any gamer in Trinidad and Tobago can purchase games on steam using a VTM. A VTM is basically a Visa Card for online use that is pre-loaded with funds and as a result does not require any credit checks or qualifications,

Click here to read more on the VTM.

What's not to like?

* You cannot resell your games. Once purchased, they remain linked to your account and your account alone
* Automatic updates, while usually a plus, there maybe the time that an update breaks a game or introduces a new feature you do not want. Steam does not allow you to roll back.
* Phishing. If someone were to get your steam username and password, they could gain access to all your games. You will have to prove to STEAM that you are the rightful owner of the account via their support service to be reinstated.
* Yet Another running application. The steam client sits in your tray and can easily consume 64MB of system ram and more.

Anyone ever tried it?

Yeah, EB has served me well in the past but never tried their download service.

That last screenshot isn't a browser, that's the actual STEAM client itself on my pc.

Now that you mention it, it does have a browser-ish finish.

Well when MW2 comes out hoping to double dip ps3 and pc. Get back a bit into pc gaming.
Steam looks promising.
