EA titles coming to STEAM

I have said in the past that STEAM deserves to be the "LIVE" of PC gaming, EA dropping some games into a reliable digital distribution system is a step froward not only for what I think is good for PC gaming, but for a company that, like it or not, has put a lot of effort into making better products lately.

Im not a fan of EA, they make some terrible games and then they drop things like Mass Effect (which I really enjoyed, say what you want about that). And by the way: Iam a PC gamer, and to be a PC gamer means that I have to wait for games to come out for the PC since everything is "console first" right now, anything that is "we can deliver both console and PC", is welcome here.

Back to EA on STEAM, its not a big thing, they are dropping some games that I own allready and others I dont even care because if I havent played them I wont be playing them and thats it. But, if in the future they release the games at the same time without any "lag", then we have a winner for the PC gamers.

So, Im now loading this post on the category "games for windows", but actually the games for windows idea was a bad idea and poorly developed... so poorly developed by Microsoft that a guy with a relatively small company that made a great game and then decided to make a sequel of that game and drop it on a digital distribution system of its own... well, you know the history, STEAM didnt have anything else than Half Life 2 at the beginning, I was there, its not what it is right now (Ubisoft games and now EA, big titles). This Valve guy was an ex Microsoft employee.

I will be on the dtoid STEAM group.

About Veltone of us since 11:54 PM on 05.31.2007

Iam a gammer from the harsh uruguayan jungle (we dont even have a jungle down here, too cold, go and do some wikipedia of Uruguay). I used to do a podcast in spanish about videogames at Radio LevelUp but I dont do it anymore... anyway those guys are there still making it so you can give it a try if you understand spanish
And i can say "�aca �aca �aca" and i know how to pronoaunce it well since im a spanish speaker, so Im a superior race.
A couple of idiots may find funny that I dont have good english grammar, but again, they are probably idiots since they only speak/write one language...

Most of my time in the internet is because of games. I love videogames so much that i sleep with my girlfriend and my ds, at the same time... i call that a "threesome" and my humor doesnt get anything better than that.
Mostly im a PC gamer, i was going to buy a 360 but faulty crappy hardware told me not to since if it goes RRoD here I would have lost my money, and as a man Im entitled to the sweat of my brow. I want to fuck the Wii and I believe the PS3 is going to be the first console in space.

In the "real" life (come on, internet now is part of our lives anyway...), I study medicine (takes a lot of time and I cant spend enough of my time playing videogames). Is not what you would call a marriage made in heaven, if I wanted to game more I should have sutdy something related to pc�s, but I grown surrounded by computers and stuff so I chose the bio stuff instead. Anyway, little time to play video games if you dont want my biographical shit.

And the main reasson I play games for the story behind them. I love well written stories like Half Life series, of course Portal (kind of a Valve fan). Other great games include World Of Warcraft (not currently playing, actually I was never hardcore, but I enjoyed the experience a lot), and of course the classics like System Shock 2. Other great titles had stuck with me over the years, classics adventure games like Monkey Island, Indiana Jones and Grim Fandango.

So, best game experiences:
Half Life 2 (and the original Half Life of course).
System Shock 2
Grim Fandango
Indiana Jones and the Fate Of Atlantis
Monkey Island
