What is that? We can't even have the choice to skip the update? I just bought the DVD game Fall of the Samurai from Future Shop. I bought the physical because i thought it will save me the time and money. Since I have an average internet speed, a 4-6 GB usually takes me 4-5 hours to download, so i refrain from downloading stuff from the internet unless i absolutely have to. That means leaving my PC on overnight if i want to download updates,mods,patches and all that. That is a waste of energy,time and my patience.
Anyway after a long day of stressed out work, I was so stoked that i can finally play this, hell i wasn't even 100% sure if my PC rig can handle this game but i bought it anyway so i can have a fun night. Now after the install, Steam automatically updates this game, at first I was like ok with it but then I realize it is about 7-8 hours of update. WHYY!!?? I'm not even interested in the multiplayer or the fixes, I just want to start the game and play the campaign so what the hell is up with this 15+ Gb download! I mean sure I will probably have to download the update sooner or later to be able to download mods but come on.
What happened to the old polite procedure of giving the customers an option to choose?
Is there even a workaround with this or are we really suppose to be forced to download that huge chunk of data?
If CA keep collaborating with Steam and allow this kind of things to happen then man i will know what to expect in future releases, and it wont be a fun thought.
ok i learned that it is only about 5-6 Gb of update,Steam mislead me, yet another reason why steam sucks. But still this is unacceptable, we should have an option to skip the update or install the game with out Steam at all.
What will happen if I do not have internet connection for a month or so, does that i mean i can not play this game, a game which i bought the disc yet still considered a digitally bought?
