    This is why I hate STEAMing Pile of Shit

    Today:

    Attempt 1: "Whoopsie doopsie, can't connect your account".
    - Try to sign in to Steampowered.com = "Whoopsie doopsie, you need to enter TEH CODE OF UBAR AWESOME CUZ ITS BEEN A WHILE HERP DERP"
    - OK, fine, code entered, my account has indeed NOT been stolen by leet haksors, let's be happy about that shall we!
    - Fuck it, reboot.

    Attempt 2: Steam signs in, but "Whoopsie doopsie, TEH GMAE IS CURENTLY UNAVAILABLE HERP DERP"
    - What game you ask? That would be GTA fucking IV. A single-player offline game, unless you count the abortion that is Social Club.
    - Of course, Steaminpileofshit.com has instructions half a page long on how to fix it. Question is, why do I need to fix it if it ran just bloody fine yesterday?

    Bottom line: FUCK YOU STEAM. You were a goddamn abortion when you were first implemented, and you still are. Fuck you, and fuck your ET PHONE HOME functionality.
    "The Patient? Well... maybe... the mental kind..."

    1/2 of your complaint is that you had to read an e-mail to verify your account hasn't been compromised?

    The other part is legitimate (though done in a very immature way). Forcing you to log into an online account to play an offline game is rather lame.

    steam is not that mean last time I checked you could just switch off online mode and be happy playing any game offline, which is how my sister has been leeching my steam account for years.

    This. Even though it is idiotic to have to play in offline mode, for a while, I didn't have a net connection, but I still managed to play HL2 in offline mode. Steam, while having its problems, is an excellent service.
    It's not just me, it's ALL rets. Join the ret MS club, get bitches, get money, get nerfed.
    It takes idiots to do cool things. That's why they are cool.

    Sure can. You don't even have to be in Online mode to play Online games. I used to go into Invisible mode whenever I'd play FFXI so people wouldn't bug me to get on TF2
    Listen kiddos, trust Handsome Jack. You want every part of this insanity.

    Yep... could do this for a very long time. Btw Gta4 has multiplayer....

    Your complaints are rather stupid, 1 is for security and the other is easily fixed.

    You can tell WoW changed the MMO for good when players started complaining about the amount of time they sink, into a time sink.

    If it bothers you that much, why didn't you just buy the game from gamestop or something? Nobody's forcing you to use a cloud service.

    It's a sign. Don't play Cod.

    Well, that's just not going to be the reason you have a virus, is it. What anti-virus are you using?

    So pretty much if you were patient and just read how to fix it and/or browsed forums, you would not only have fixed the issue..but learned how to go into offline mode and etc.?

    Please do that before crying about a good service.

    So you've apparently hated Steam since Day 1 but you still use the service.

    Ok.
    Hey, remember when I dropped my keys and you thought the phone was ringing?
