Steam is running a special deal where you can basically download and play UT3 for free for 3 days. A good deal, really. Steam is also selling the Unreal Tournament 3 Black game for 11.99 USD. There is no tax and since it is delivered via download there is also no shipping costs. Compared to my finding the game elsewhere I basically got it for half the cost of physically buying a disc since nowhere locally has or can seem to get the game on DVD. Apparently the studio has finally released a much awaited update to address many points that people had issues with in UT3. The Black edition apparently contains all the bonus packs including the Titan Pack. Now, here is where we get to the negative points. You obviously don't own a physical disc or have a physical manual. That bothers me but for the price I can always buy the game later at a lower price in a bargain bin. What I found more problematic was the download system from Steam and it is a reason I have a negative opinion of Steam and any similar type of game delivery platform. I purchased the game and it took 24 hours for me to actually download it. Granted the download was sizable but I have a 10+ Mbit/s connection and I, at times, was downloading at 10 Kb/s if I was downloading at all. From looking at the Steam forums it appears many people have had download issues. It seems they don't differentiate between people who bought the game and those using the free 3 day promotion. Hey, I paid money and I want my game. I should be allocated bandwidth to get what I paid for and I should take priority off someone playing for free. So, one method for resolving the problem for those who have a download issue like myself is to go into your Steam settings and change the region you are in for downloads. Amazingly enough it appears Steam is too stupid to have the client dynamically switch servers between regions when load on certain servers is high. Manually switching from one region to another made my inability to download turn into downloading at 1 Mbit/s. I still had problems and I had to switch between regions numerous times. The free 3 day event is great but it's worthless if people cannot download UT3 to play it. The 11.99 USD price is also great but greatly annoying if you cannot download the game. Anyway, if anyone is interested and doesn't already own UT3 then I'd say to check it out.
