Little Steam Rant.

Steam is a brilliant content delivery system yes, but so frustrating at times.

Bought Napoleon:Total War (Imperial Edition) today. It has, like many games a online activation code.

Thats cool. So I activate and had to start downloading, and it still is now. I understand obviously it's my slow connection, but it all just seems so unnecessary. I've activated with my code, now why can't I just boot up the disc and play. :|

I'm sure someone else shares a similar opinion?

a) Check that you're downloading from the right region

b) You complain about not booting from a disc, so why didn't you just buy it instore?

Not sure if the note applies to your game though.
