well, i just picked the game up and completed the installation. jeez, even with a disc, the game easily took almost 30mins to install on my system. it was about 10min to get Steam working (why they chose to use Steam on a disc installation i'll never understand), and another 20min for the actual installation. that was ridiculous, even for a game with this much data (about 1.5GB). i'm not off to a very good start.
See the struggle of the faithless lot as they negate their time
How low to sink to the depths of their frame of mind
