Is it just me
« on: February 09, 2014, 12:28:55 pm »
Or is it really bloody annoying how you buy a game, have to install it (even on consoles ffs) and then immediately have to install updates before you play it.

Case in point.

I bought Orange box because I've never played Portal and was aware that it was kind of a big deal. I put off actually installing it until today because I have nothing else planned.

I insert the disk, and commence installation... it doesn't take too long considering there are 2 CD's. Ok, so can I play Portal now?

Nope. I have to create a steam account. FFS, ok, I create a steam account. Can I play portal now?

Like hell. It needs to install updates...... progress bar informs me that this'll take around 3 hours. ...............



I have still never played Portal and never will. Modern games are not worth all this ballache.

Would have been easier if you had just installed steam, purchased it through steam and when it downloaded and installed, it would have downloaded the latest version therefore not requiring updates after install lol :p

Nope. I'm done with video games. I'm going to play with Lego and my toy guns.

Don't really have that bad of problem on the xbox one - updates have always gone ahead of game installation on my system, and then some percentage through the install you can play it
