T3fun finally managed to get Granado Espada (USA) on Steam and kept featuring New Era content when they have not even updated to New Era Episode 1 in more than 4 months...
Steam is an Internet-based digital distribution platform developed by Valve Corporation offering digital rights management (DRM), multiplayer, and social networking. T3Fun is making it like it's a big deal, but personally, I can't figure out the point of having Steam for GE. What exactly does it do for the game?
Why would I want to install Steam? According to this , Steam installation provides these benefits:
- Instant Access to Games
You mean I don't have instant access to games I installed on my hard disk? *confused*
- Join the Community
Can't you already form clans, chat in-game, and use forums without Steam?
- Create and Share Content
Uh, I don't see how Steam helps to customize or create new content for this game...
- Entertainment Anywhere
Except this game still doesn't run on Linux or Mac. Steam doesn't make the game client run in non-Windows O/S, does it?
- Digital Rights Management
What DRM? This game is free-to-play, free-to-download.
Apparently, you can link an existing T3Fun account to Steam account. Forum user Armmine said here :
To link your existing game account to your Steam account kindly Log In your Steam >>> Run Granado Espada from Steam >>> When the Granado Espada Client prompt up just kindly Log In by using your existing game account.
The events linked below are all meant for new accounts created with Steam.
