...I bid on a new copy of Duke Nukem Forever on Sunday - got it for £1.29, so I thought I'd install it and have a relaxing afternoon killing things. If I had known (or remembered) that Steam was involved I might not have bothered.
Installed, and pretty painlessly for a Steam product, so I'm thinking maybe they have improved since I first met them and developed a grudge.

So...I'll run it.

Little dialog pops up: "Updating Duke Nukem Forever" - did I ask for this? No. Can I press the "Play" button? No. Is there a "cancel - leave it alone" button? No.
And what does the rest say? "Ready to launch in approximately: 2 hours 42 minutes"...

So...Steam's still cr@p then? D'Oh! | :doh:
