WTF Steam?

Pre Ordered F1 2010 on steam, so i got to pre-load it ready for the release.

According to the steam store page, there was an hourly count down, and it would be ready around 2:00am here in the UK.

7:00am... nothing? fml.

they finally unlocked it at around 4.30pm, i imagine once they'd strolled into the office, had a cup of coffee and finally f**ked up.

Its really good, definatly seems to keep in the spirit of F1. I can even run it on full graphics on my now 2 year old card which im damn happy about. Havent tried multiplayer yet, but hope to soon with my mate.

Virgin media capped me after i went over their limit, which on my 10Mb connection takes about 20 mins haha. and i wasn't watching it closely enough. so i left it on overnight... and my PC decided to hibernate :< game looks great though.

I wasn't watching and Bigpond got me for 225MB over cap at $0.15/MB before I realized Steam had resumed downloading "Black Shark"

Steam has always cost me and worried me, why did I use it in the first place. I bought a game CD that wouldn't let me use it without steam. Didn't even have the net then so here I am on the net and cursed with steam all because of that fateful day and can't even remember the name of the thing, Racing cars of some sort. NFS......

They lock you in at purchase, I bought the original DVD game in question at a Game Traders store, and not from the web as a download so they are a bit sly.
