Earlier this week Dragon Age II was pulled from Steam. Rumour has is that it was pulled because the expansion could be purchased within the game and not through steam.
Just when I was going to buy it...almost done with DA:O. Guess EA just saved me some money since I won't be buying it now, lol.
EA is evil, so I boycott their games (except for ME), but Steam is sounding more and more suspiciously like the console platforms....
I'm sure Steam isn't entirely innocent, but I would just rather have all my PC games either on my shelf or on Steam.
What I was trying to say was that despite me having issues with EA, it seems Steam is trying to lock-down their platform kind of how console makers are doing. I find that ironic, because they not too long ago complained the same about MS. Go figure! I like Steam, but if something is wrong I will voice it.

It's fixed. Had an unnecessary space at the end before.
In-game advertising is... so absolutely uncouth I cannot find the proper words to describe my disgust.
"Unfortunately, Steam has adopted a set of restrictive terms of service which limit how developers interact with customers to sell downloadable content. No other download service has adopted this practice. Consequently some of our games have been removed by Steam" You mean like Battlefield 3? Haha, way to shift the blame to Steam, EA!
I personally NEVER buy DLC. I don't see why anyone does really. I have my game. Its awesome. Why pay extra?
The worst part is developers will go ahead and pull the DLC right out of the full game before it releases, without any shame in doing it. For example, Assassin's Creed II, Chapters 12 and 13 were pulled out, so that they could make money off them.
"Why pay extra?" To get extra awesome. (well, in some cases, ex. Vietnam, RDR:UN, Fo3 DLC, etc.)
