  1. Hah! Now that I got all you free software hippies in here, I can tell you all that as of 40 minutes ago (at least where I'm rollin' in the GMT -5) I am 19 years old.

    I'm getting Steam's id Super Pack. Go ahead and tell me how bad Steam is and that it's a waste. I don't care. I'm excited.

    Oh and my grandad's getting me some Microsoft points so I can get Doom 2 when it's released on XBLA.

      The data files are accessible; you can do whatever you want with them. Steam pretty much just installs the games to its internal folder.

      Keen/Doom/Wolf3d actually run in DOSBox, and each has its own copy of DOSBox in it. Steam still launches the games in the same way you might launch them yourself, but you can tell they weren't expecting you to tweak anything behind the scenes. For example, Doom lacks a setup utility. If you want to change the controls, you'll have to find the number for each button and edit the config yourself.

      Happy birthday DuckReconMajor!

      You want to hear about the birth of DRM? DRM was invented by a cartel of shady media guys in suits in order to compensate for their idealistic bankruptcy, their lack of business creativity and total inability to provide actual value to consumers, in the internet age, without ripping them off. They cannot find ways to compete in a market that's overwhelming them (it's a better deal to watch a DVDRip than it is to actually buy a copy of the DVD what with all the unskippable and now mythical "You wouldn't steal a loaf of bread" propaganda ads - curiously enough those were originally made in Portugal, for the Portuguese market) because it provides so much better prices, then coerce the software and electronics manufacturers (disregard this if you're thinking Sony, they're all the same kind of wretched scum no matter what subsidiary they come from) into intentionally crippling their products in order to maintain their profit margin stupidly high, while reducing the coverage of the actually provided services. All this encased in a "consumer protection" fa├žade which goes to show how perfidious the music and film industries are, because it's actually not that different from racketeering. And consumerism is how they poison us.
