Hi, this is my first post here – actually I register on the forum to specifically post this
I found out about this game about a week ago, d/l the demo, and is now very interested in it.
I was planning to buy the game + DLC from Steam, however I noticed that on the main website currently offering a “Gold” bundle at very attractive price
If I buy from game + all the DLC on Steam, that’s 19.99 + (5.99 * 3) or 37.96
If I buy a gold copy from the main site, that’s 25.95
So the gold bundle is very very attrative. However, I have one nagging question.
I’m the kind of person that only plays a game for a month or two, moves on, only to come back months or even years down the line to play the game again. Case in point, I’m digging up my Civilization IV discs to install again in anticipation of Civ V after not playing it for almost 2 years.
The thing is I some times have problem of keeping track of digital contents. If there is a physical discs, usually it’s fine as I have a dedicated box to store them. However with digital content and my tendency to get a new computer every 2-3 years, sometimes I lost things that I thought I had backed up somewhere but actually didn’t.
On Steam, this is not an issue as Steam let you d/l any thing you already paid for for unlimited times. So I can wipe my hd or get a new computer without worrying about losing my games.
Now, I just want to know if with buying form the main website, is there a way for me to re-download everything again later, presumably much later, like maybe 2-3 years down the line?
This would help me a lot in deciding on where to purchase my copy.
I know this may seem overly fussing for such trivial matters (only a few dollars difference), so I hope nobody is annoyed.
PS: I know you probably hear this a lot on this website, but let me say that this game looks to be awesome. I’m really impressed.
