Oh my god. nearly all of today's deals are mercilessly tickling my bum! This will require some thought! I also bought Trine 2, from my Android phone in work as well, went very smoothly!!

I definitely understand the thought. My rationale has been the convenience of Steam, coupled with the fact the files are on my computer and i'm not above downloading a crack for my games if I couldn't access them. Sure it's jumping through hoops but I don't see it as likely happening to be frank. I have a frankly worrying amount of faith in Valve!
