I’m getting ready for a long flight, so I decided to install Steam on my backup laptop for the trip. Figured I can bum around in Portal and other games on the long flight.
Now, lots of people complain about Steam, but I don’t have a problem with it. It’s convenient, I don’t have to get my butt out of my chair, and it’s the same price as getting my ass out to the game shop, buying the game, then coming home. But Steam, the technology, seems to get updated pretty darn often….
I download Steam, go start pulling down a game, and no more than 30 minutes later…
Yup, you guessed it. New Steam client. I didn’t even get 5% of the way into downloading Portal.
