Ok, genuine (minor) gripe about Steam; genre tags.

I thought that might be a Sega thing but it's actually to do with the pre-order offer they have going for Football Manager 2011.  The game itself is tagged with just Sports and Simulation, but the "Here's some old Genesis games." pre-order gift/bundle/thing has all those categories listed.

I wish I could filter out all of those damn train simulation titles from the top ten new releases, coming soon etc. lists.  Same with magic the gathering expansion crap too.

Yup, being able to filter just core games would be nice.

Dear Sinij,

Steam will install first, and the game will install from the disk through Steam. Once this is done, you can place Steam in offline mode if you do not want to be connected to the internet.

Kind regards,
Jamie

I guess their approach is better late than never.

Yes, I returned the game and eventually got my money back. Had to get CC involved to get my money back.

Moral of the story - don't buy anything involved with Steam if you actually want an ability to return for refund.

It's not like you can return PC games here in Norway after you've bought them, even if it is a physical game. "Company policy."

Where do all these missing "E"s go to.  I sense a conspiracy.
