I used the American McGee Cheshire for 10 years and on most sites I still use it. I changed my avatar on this site (and a few others) to my own picture in 2010 because of this whole concept that people are to afraid of using their own picture as their avatar that people spew alongside the idea that people should use their real names online all the time. So, I figured people can see me when they speak to me.

It also felt more mature to do so or something. I don't know. I like the picture, though. It represents me aptly.

When you get right down to it, it's the logical evolution of the meta narrative "That's not how it happened" fail states from Prince of Persia sands of time.

But ya, what Sethphotopoulos said is the way I understand the games reasoning of it.

@mb: I mean it downloads the game as a full install rather than downloading an exe file you run to install the game. The exe (install) file is basically the full game compressed, right, so it's not as big as the full game and it's only one file so it's more manageable for archiving purposes.

I've never heard of that before, but it certainly looks good. I gotta look into making that sometime.

@mb: I agree, but most people are going off old info when steam did have offline mode but it didn't work very well (mainly around the time steam came out and for a few years there). They also have a problem with the fact that you don't get the executable from steam, just files to run the game. You could argue it is much harder to archive games you order from steam just from a compression stand point (executables versus the entire game- if that makes sense).

I like both GOG and steam, though. It's not really a contest for me.

At least this necro is timeless.

Ya, boneless.

@sydlanel: you've already proven my point. I went through the trouble of explaining I do know what anime I like and I am called prejudice (which is a misuse of the word) for not having any interest in most anime.

Thank you for giving me a clear cut example of what I was talking about.

I won't watch your video spam but I agree that the first Mass Effect is a great game. The whole atmosphere, nostalgia it brings, and the way the game plays is unmatched even by it's sequels. The second Mass Effect is good, too, but for entirely different reasons and it's not as good as the first.

GOG doesn't give steam codes, just DRM free executables, last I checked.
