  • Well, he DID threaten to kill Gabe Newell... OTOH, that's how monopolies/tirants/... react - and this usually marks the start of their decline. People are getting scared, and try to get out. At first, they still pay lip service, but secretly or even openly they look for or create alternatives...
    This is just another turn of the wheel - after 40+ years, one has experienced it enough to see history repeating. Again. <sigh>

  • He did act like an idiot though.

    There's not much else to it really.
    It's just stupid to expect to be able to use a service that you call shit in a public space, as a public figure.

  • But then he admitted going a little (well, quite a bit more than a little) over the top. I assume he's has some "issues" with Steam before, and we're just witnessing the culmination of years of pent-up dismay...
    Anyway, he publicly apologized and resigned from his gaming company. The "manly" thing to do, I'd say, he's trying to protect people who have nothing to do with the spat from the ire of Steam/Gabe.
    Now, if I were the latter, I'd accept apologies (in company dealings, much worse happens and/or is being said) and restore the game in the Steam library.
    And make a big fuss about not being the evil company that evicts everything not complying to their dictum... Y'know, this PR stuff people keep mumbling about. Now would be a great time to utilize it to defuse a potential explosive situation.

  • How is this even a reason to dislike Steam as a gamer and consumer?
    Seems like a case of justice to me. And if you want the game, I'm sure you can get it elsewhere.
    Hopefully the company will be able to publish other games on Steam now that the owner left.

  • What exactly was he expecting to happen? He raged like a shitlord at the publisher, did he seriously expect it to have no consequences?

    A mistake was made, it happens. But when you are the face of your company you don't go acting like a shitkid and throwing a tantrum for a minor error. He admited himself that he uses Twitter to "vent" and was being immature. At least he stepped down from his company in order to save face, shows some maturity at least.

    Hopefully Steam will republish the game again now, no reason to keep a grudge. If Steam was a "real" publisher (Activison, EA, Ubisoft) that game would probably never publish anything under Steam again. Let us hope this is not the case.

  • So, you hate steam when they remove a game after it's developer makes a death threat against their CEO?

  • This isn't 2003 anymore. Steam is about as good as you could wish for. Sure there are issues from time to time but that could go for anything. Get off your dinosaur and get with the program.

  • To be honest I'm kind of hypocritical. My phone runs a custom Android rom (CyanogenMod), without Google apps, and doesn't use Google play, nor is it associated with a Google account, yet I install Steam on every PC I own, and have a very sizeable library of games, and use the service to keep in touch with/hang out with friends, etc.

    Steam's great as it is, and they're still a privately owned company (and better than most, at that), but once Gabe's gone, there's no guarantee his successor will uphold what he tries to uphold, and that they'll keep going in the same direction.

    tl;dr Monopolies are bad and DRM is bad but Steam is very, very convenient.

  • So you don't like steam because they ban and remove games from bad publishers who not only go completely rage mode on twitter, but type out death threats to the CEO of valve? Please, explain how that makes them a bad platform.
