So does anyone have anything good to say about Playfire? (besides ZOMG FREE GAMEZ!, which admittedly is a big plus)
I mucked around with it this morning briefly and it seems like a much crappier version of Raptr. Does it even have a client or is it all just web based?
It timed out trying to detect my Steam ID (yes I made sure it was entered correctly) and now I can't even find where you are supposed to go to get it to try to reconnect.
Oh well, I did get the free racing game and it's not like I need yet another
service to mess with, especially one that seems not so user friendly to navigate and isn't giving me a lot of compelling reason to use it besides HEY FREE STUFF!
A question about Capsule -- I'd be interested in Grand Ages: Rome, Imperium Romanum, and so forth, but I don't need another program that I have to open to launch games -- Steam and Origin are more than enough on my PC. Is Capsule just a downloader, or do you have to use it to open your games from it, as well?
It's a bit confusing but my understanding is it can be either and varies from game to game. I believe the difference is in the wording of "requires the capsule to play
" vs "requires the capsule to download
". Also if something has a trade in value it probably requires the capsule to play since that would be how they would track whether or not you still own the game or have traded it in. In that case it acts as a DRM.
The Grand Ages Rome page is looking to me like it does require the capsule to play based on the info they have listed.
