When someone is willing to say some of the truth, but not all of the truth, that usually indicates some of the truth looks bad for them. I love Steam and I sort of hate EA since the player suspension incident, but I'd call Steam wrong if they are wrong here... if we get the whole truth and from that they really are wrong.
all of that DLC was available Prior to the new rules are grandfathered in. They were legit at the time, and should continue to be. But anything released afterward would apply the new rules. Which would explain why the first DLC for crysis 2 didnt get them kicked, it was grandfathered in, then next one which just gets released, gets them removed.
Just a theory, dont have anything to back it up.
Does anyone own alice, and can they confirm DLC is purchased in game?
If the rules change like i think. Since it wasnt offered on steam, it got the boot for the same reason as Crysis 2.
What is Free-to-Play?
Free-to-Play games are available to download for free and can be played without a subscription or a credit card. Your Steam wallet allows you to purchase items and content in-game to customize your gameplay.
Will I need a credit card to play?
No, there are no upfront obligations to download and play Free-to-Play games, however you will need a supported payment method to fund your Steam Wallet if you wish to purchase items or content for the game.
Will I need to fund my Steam Wallet?
If you wish to purchase in-game items or content, you will need to fund your Steam Wallet. Please see the Steam Wallet FAQ for more information.
Hmmm need money in a steam wallet to purchase items. Time will tell if we see more games getting yanked, or adding steam wallet for payment methods. Really though, steam wallet. come on.Edited by Vhati - 6/15/11 at 7:36pm
