Comments on: Punking Steam http://www.oshane.com/2010/03/punking-steam/ Continuously opining, intermittently publishing. Thu, 19 Aug 2021 23:20:11 +0000 hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=4.5.24 By: O.Shane http://www.oshane.com/2010/03/punking-steam/comment-page-1/#comment-376 Fri, 23 Apr 2010 18:50:39 +0000 http://www.oshane.com/wp/?p=236#comment-376 I never disfavor privately oriented communal arrangements. If people want to create their own governments and bind themselves to such an authority under contract, that’s fine. That’s how big projects get done!

For example, O and C and D purchase a single license to Alpha Bravo: the Reckoning. All three players have access to the game through online verification, but only one of them can play it at a time.

This would benefit patient players, and those not oriented to online (i.e. simultaneous) play.

This is the only time you’ll hear me suggest “commune” in a positive light, most likely. I haven’t gone red zombie on you or anything.

You are trying to explain to Valve “this is gold, and this is why you should not throw it into the garbage.”
