I had some issues with Steam's offline mode being retarded recently. Was working away from home Mon-Fri staying in hotels and quite often, I'd fire up steam fully expecting the option to work offline. Click the work offline button and it comes back with a connection error. Well duh!!?? So while Steam isn't perfect yet, it is very nice to use IMO. I just hate that some devs are fording more and more DRM crap on top. GTA4 anyone?? Steam+Rockstar lounge pish+GFWL sh1te!!?? No thanks! I must say though, judging by the reported reaction from the developers in the crowd, most of them would be happier without DRM too. Must just be the greed of the publishers?
