After communicating with a couple of people and doing research on Steam I
decided to cancel my order for the Sherlock Holmes game. Luckily I canceled
in time and wont be charged for it.
I had ordered the game on Amazon and had to send an email to the sender, so it
wasn't a typical cancellation.
I was wondering why games like this one are being released as "Steam Powered"
and not the typical way games were released - even though I could make a guess
and think it might be related to cost and profit margin.
I'm not even sure how the Steam system works but the one common thread I've seen,
more than once, is that quite a few people are not very happy with support.
I've been away from most adventure games lately - mostly using Big Fish - but I
really want to get back to these type of games but hesitate if the games are going
to be released through the "steam" process.
I guess I long for the old days of walking into a brick and mortar store and seeing
row after row of adventure games, ala Myst, etc.
I just hope the new Syberia game will not be released using Steam.
