Indeed. Been playing it solo for a couple hours now.
Once I got it installed that is.
The first 150+ times steam insisted the key was invalid and wouldn't
even let me install the friggen game.
It wasn't until after I'd contacted 2k about the problem that steam
suddenly decided that the exact same key was now valid.
Then of course it force patched, finished (claimed to), then of course
it said it wasn't ready to be run in offline mode.
Back online for more downloading, the back offline. Start game and
nothing happens. back online, start game and it "finalized the install"
or something like that, then I could finally go offline and play.
Total time wasted - a couple hours waiting for steam to admit that the
perfectly valid key was in fact valid and trying various workarounds
mentioned in various forums, then a 90 minute install from dvd, then
another hour or so in patching and finalizing.
I was installing from dvd, the least it could do is do the friggen
install and then wait to be verified and patched. But NO, it has to be
accepted by steam before you can install from physical media and if
steam fucks up, which it did, you can do nothing at all.
And you wonder why I don't like steam.
No, I'm not kidding about the 150+ tries either.
I don't particularly want you to FOAD, myself. You'll be more of
