me, nobody wants to 'stick it to Valve' more than those currently in
the cafe program. We're rubbing pennies together trying to make it from
month to month, while Valve is making millions off of us ...
All I ask is that you make some effort to edit cafe numerical details from any future release.Please don't release the CC information, for the sake of the centers who are less informed.
If you want me to remove these files you can e-mail me at (address removed) and I prefer you come with something good unless you want me to expose ALL of the customers their information.
There has been no
security breach of Steam. The alleged hacker gained access to a third-party
site that Valve uses to manage the commercial partners in its Cyber
Café program. This Cyber Café billing system is not connected to Steam.
We are working with law enforcement agencies on this matter, and
encourage anyone with more information to e-mail us at

quote: As to Oblivion, well, I am a RPG fan, I did buy it (special edition, too), and IMO it wasn't worth the money or the wait. It's a hack'n'slash game with a few bad, completely disconnected stories sprinkled on top, and possibly the most disappointing AI ever (partly due to all the pre-release hyping). The game feels less interactive than Ultima 7, which is 15 years old, and has less atmosphere than Morrowind (its predecessor). It does have nice graphics and generally fun combat, but I was expecting a RPG (meaning a believable, consistent, immersive "world simulator"), not a 3D version of Diablo. It was clearly designed for younger console gamers, not "old school" RPG fans. If only Valve would reunite the Origin / Looking Glass team and produce a real, polished, consistent RPG, based on Source... I can dream, can't I? :-)
