The original version has the revoke tool, the GOTY version does not. The GOTY version also includes server-side activation through GFWL; clearly the developers thought that one flavor of DRM just wasn't enough.

The Big DRM List (search for Arkham)

Wow, Bloodlines is the weekend deal? I mean, it's one of my favorite games ever made.... but really?

P.S.: Anyone who gets this needs to go to www.planetvampire.com and download the fan patches. They correct most of the bugs, and make it a much mroe enjoyable experience. I believe they're also needed to run it on a 64-bit system.
In progress.

Didn't know where to post this:

Some questions:

Can you install games on different hard disks?

If not, is it too hard to move the installation? Or say, can you have 2 hard disks with 2 OS in the same computer and have the same Steam account installed in both of them?

Saw some post talking about associating links commands, where you move the game folders to the location you want and associated them to steam, but will the games auto update this way?

If not the place please direct me to it and ill edit the message. Thanks for your time.

move your steamapps folder to where you want it
run a command prompt in admin

mklink /j "source" "target"

example:
Move steamapps to D:\\Games\\ and rename it to "Steam Games"
then
mklink /j "c:\\program files\\steam\\steamapps" "D:\\Games\\Steam Games"

This creates a symbolic link, a bit like a shortcut, but apps see it like a real folder.
Works only in ntfs

You can move whatever folder you want with this.
There is no issues whatsoever.

Is it worth getting?

My old roommate torrented it, but I didn't wanna have to deal with all that hassle and didn't play it. But seeing it on Steam, makes me wanna pick it up.

@Refreshment

The symlink will appear as a folder with a shortcut arrow.
When/if you want to cancel your actions, delete the symlink and move the folder back to it's original place.
- Deleting the symlink folder doesn't delete the target
- Deleting the content of the symlink will delete the target (since you are effectively working directly in the target location)

nb: My renaming step (previous post) is optional
