Eidos Everything Pack: 20 Games on Steam for $100

eidos-everything-pack.jpg

If you’re looking to build up your collection of Steam games and are a fan of Eidos, right now is the perfect time to act. The “Eidos Everything Pack” on Steam includes 20 games — totaling just about $390 if you were to buy them individually — for the low, low price of just $99.99. (Sorry, I’m in a hotel room watching infomercials. They’re contagious.)

Not everything in the pack is great; Rogue Trooper and Conflict: Denied Ops are far from my favorite games, but both Deus Ex games, three Hitman games, the fun-despite-itself Just Cause, and Tomb Raider: Anniversary and Legend more than make up for it. Those games right there are worth way more than $100, so you can consider everything else a bonus.

Realistically, the only problem I foresee is having to spend an additional $100+ on a new hard drive to store all of this stuff.

“Those games right there are worth way more than $100″

No, they’re not. Since Steam is nothing but a tenuous subscription service, a consumer is much better off with Gametap for those games. Every one of those games is available on Gametap, and for only $10 (one-tenth Steam’s price for a subscription to the same games) you can play every one of them in a month. Since almost all of those are only single-player games, one or two play-throughs at most is all one would get or want out of them anyway.

You own the games once you’ve purchased them on Steam – you can download and play them on any computer. How is it a subscription service?

“You own the games once you’ve purchased them on Steam”

NO, you don’t own them as you would a traditional game on physical media. With Steam games you are simply paying a flat free upfront for a subscription to play the game under Valve’s terms. You can ultimately only play the games if Valve and Steam allow you to do so and only so long as it allows you. Steam’s built-in DRM ensures and enforces that Valve and Steam retain control over the games to which you are subscribed.

“How is it a subscription service?”

I knew you were stupid, but I didn’t know you were that stupid. Despite being such a Valve and Steam sycophant you obviously never bothered to actually read the Steam SUBSCRIBER Agreement at http://www.steampowered.com/v/index.php?area=subscriber_agreement or at least the title of it. As defined by Valve in that agreement, Steam is a subscription service and the games and other content offered via Steam are tenuous “subscriptions” not products. And, the Steam Subscriber Agreement is not just a paper tiger like most software EULA’s since Steam’s DRM gives Valve the ability to enforce that agreement and its other policies regarding the use of Steam at any time with “zero-tolerance” ( see https://support.steampowered.com/kb_article.php?ref=5406-WFZC-5519 for details ).
