          I have to say, if they have to rebuild their patches for every distribution system they were using, they'd doing something wrong. But then all you have to do is look at the UI and default keys in ARMA II to figure out that they don't know what they're doing.

            They know what they're doing. I think they place a lower priority on certain things that don't ultimately affect overall gameplay. They have made a very great game, with tons of support on other things that no other games have and that's what makes ArmA 2 so enjoyable. I'm sure any qualms you have will be remedied with ArmA 3.

              Whatever it takes to get the game . I am not a fan of Steam but I have some games on there, none of arma though. Won't be able to say that too much longer.

                Purely from a sometimes help desk servant's point of view, this is good news... Everyone on the same page, same version, mods all work with that version....ahhhh....i might play ArmA 3!

                    Same here. Currently Steam only seems to serve the purpose of pushing out major updates and everything else BIS ever did was in publicly available beta builds. They've been serving the Steam community for quite some time so I think they have got a handle on it. Hopefully we will see an alpha release soon.

                      +1 for Steam. Makes backing up the games library a simple file copy -- great for new PC builds and backups.

                      Curious about Chief's comment -- what's the story there Chief? Have you had a bad experience with Steam -- please share why you're not a fan. :)

                        Most of my games are from Steam. I do not have problems with Steam anymore. Steam's reputation stuck when it first came out buggy and crashy. But now they have built it to a stable and quite useful platform. Serves me well, as I do not have to maintain CDs and DVDs anymore.

                          I use Steam all the time, for everything. Never had an issue with it. It is entirely a matter of personal preference. I can reinstall my computer, open steam, set the programs I want to install, go to sleep, wake up, and I'm ready to go.

                          Centralized software management is the way of the present, no longer the future. The future will be streaming gameplay from a cloud based installation. I can't wait for those days. Just tap it to my brain.

                          I enjoy not having to keep track of install CD's and Keys and everything.

                          Swat 4 notwithstanding.

                            This is great news. Steam is fantastic.

                              I think I use to dislike Steam just because I couldn’t hold it in my grubby little hands. Now for many of the reasons posted above I’m a huge supporter.
