Surprise, Alice: Madness Returns shows up on Steam after all

PCGAMER: What the heck is up with EA and Steam? First they’re buddy-buddy, then EA launches Origin (at this point little more than a new coat of paint on the EA Download Store) and games start disappearing off of Steam. EA blames Steam and Valve, Valve says not a lot about anything. (Alice: Madness Returns, EA, PC, Steam, Valve Software)

Steam=the heart of PC gaming and EA better realize that

well it just means more sales for them, MS finally realized this with GFWL and I'm sure EA will as well

why do i get the feeling that the people who disagreed with you are the same people who simply looked at the review scores and deemed this game poor without even playing it?

agreed. this game is amazing.

It's not a surprise.
Nobody is gonna leave Steam for EA's shitty DRM filled Origin.
It's that simple. EA needs to learn their place.

Quick question because I'm really not sure of specifics... how is Origin any more DRM filled than Steam?
T3MPL3TON  +   1507d ago
You can in the very least play games offline with Steam.

A true DRM which is what EA is using doesn't allow you to play the game offline. Not even single player.

From what I do understand of the service and doing a bit of reading up on it, once you download a game via Origin, you don't even have to have the client running to load the game, unlike Steam where the client running is a requirement. Alice, as an example, has a one time online activation, be it via Origin or Steam.

Steam is the only, the ONLY, online retailer, brick and mortar AND digital, that commands RESPECT!

It kills xboxlive, gamestop, bestbuy, psn, target, walmart
ect. ect. ect.

EA really does not want to lose steam,

40 million users who all buy stuff, I have over 100 steam games alone.

sorry but places like GoG deserves respect too ...

Steam dwarves them obviously , but there is still plenty room for others to exist

Cool, I have the game on PC and I'm loving it, reminds me of an old-school platfomer with a dark twist. Although, I understand how some people might not be into it.

I was expecting it to hit Steam on Friday. The Alice page on Origin had "exclusive to Origin until 6/17" on it since Tuesday.
