Steam download causing issues to many users.
IPACS should look for alternative ways or even better: manage downloads directly.
guess i wasn't the only one with issues. DLC never really installed, after days of downloading and re-downloading.
The full 130+GB load is on my hard disk but i am not able to start the game.
Steam seems to work on an on an on for no reason.
What i learn hands-on: Steam sucks!
Connecting a product with partners like steam means giving away control. If they mess up, your product is down.
No distributor, no publisher, no nothing other than a powerful server is required today for selling and updating games. What used to be done for funding reasons, publishing companies no longer should brought in between users and developers. So many funding sources exist today, market will re-configure in the next few years. And hopefully, companies like steam will have disappeared.
Latest Business Reports confirm that Steam is of no advantage to either publishers or users due unqualified and unmotivated supporters, unnumbered account issues, slow download, hacked servers and content, publishers' loss of product and revenue control, a real business killer if you will.
see, how it's done:
Large downloads, many versions, frequent updates (DLCs): no issues.
