Quoting acare84, reply 21We need to buy our games again, oh that's nice. I love Steam and I could buy the game again for $9.99 but not for $15. That is so annoying that we can't register our keys to Steam.
You don't *have* to if you already own it. Having to have it on Steam is a choice.
It is a choice, but a great many people have a preference for it. I have used Impulse only for Stardock games, and it is a pain to have to use another client. Just a few weeks ago I bought five copies of Trinity on Impulse as gifts for friends, not knowing this was in the pipes, and I've now got some serious remorse.
Is this decision final, or is it still a possibility that can be investigated?
