If you have access to PCGamer they have an 8-page spread on it - looks
great.

another pc game infected with steam is terrible news!
knowing that a good developer like ritual has sold out to
valve and will be working for them helping to impose and
spread abusive steam into pc games and pc gamers is very
BAD for us all except brainwashed valve fanatics like you

the detail of featuring episodes each one with a scandalous
high price of 20 bucks with only a few lousy miserable six
hours of gameplay is secondary cause what is important is
steam being there and any pc game with steam is a pc game
to fight against!
even if steam was free it would still be wrong and bad!
that's our mission!
that's the mission of any true pc gamer!
fight against steam!
fight against valve!
fight against ritual!
fight against sin2!
long live pc games steam free!

I agree. Are they not able to find a real publisher? I suspect they use
the episodic approach to appeal to people with slow internet connections
who couldn't download a whole game, like myself. Still I won't do it.

Remember when Stephen King released "The Green Mile" episodically? He
released a new section every two weeks and charged $2.99 for each volume and
$3.99 for the last one. In the end it cost $18.94 for a paperback book. King
did it as a gimmick and throw back to the old days but it didn't catch on.
Releasing games like this won't catch on either.

SKboy you are accusing Valve of doing this. This is not Valve's idea. It is
Ritual's idea. Valve just has the technology to make it happen. No one is
forcing anybody to buy these series of games. When it fails (and I think it
will) it will not happen again.

From what I remember, the Stephen King experiment was published as
shareware and nowhere near enough people were honest enough to pay for
it, despite the huge amounts that downloaded it. In that respect, it
isn't fair to compare that scenario with episodic games distributed
and paid for in advance over Steam.

You're thinking of "The Plant" by King which was published in serials over
the internet. "The Green Mile" was a published series of books.

proper retail packaged boxed version from the famous budget
publisher xplosiv with a great low price below the 10 bucks

Don't understand what you mean there - that I'm always replying to
Steamkiller? Well, guilty as charged I suppose. At any rate, if Sin 2 still
has that irritating ponytailed gobshite of a main character in it, very
probably I *will* skip it. I was put off the first one by the insane loading
times in the demo, I only played the full game much later on a much faster
PC and after many patches, by which point it was dated and I was
underwhelmed.

Asimov once wrote about a man who was playing with his tape deck, it spat
the tape out, while playing the track backwards and the tape landed in a
pentagram, entirely by coincidence. however the reverse track happened to be
an incantation that summoned a genie in the pentagram. the man refused the
wish for a while, until the genie begged him for release. (I cant remember
how it went but it had something to do with lotto)

Yep, on budget release. It was worth it at that price. I pay for nearly
every PC game that I play.

I read _The Green Mile_ via the public library, so I didn't pay for it.
Does that make me pirating scum? :-P

I never did go back and read the single-volume novel; don't know what
changes if any were made to it.
