holy crap, i think i avoided all last week because i thought this was the same as GapeTap...

 

does anyone know: are these downloads required to be launched in a proprietary launcher, like gametap's web interface? or are they simply the game, easy to install once downloaded, easy to move to my laptop or mod / transfer save game files from whatever folder they are stored in to another computer, etc??

basically if this requires a web/proprietary launcher to play, i'm avoiding it...

I picked up Serious Sam last week on the $5 sale. Apparently, they have a download manager (similar to Amazon mp3 downloader), but for some reason it would not work/install on my computer (it probably has something to do with your choice of browser - I was either using Firefox or Chrome). So instead of using D2D download manager, I used the built-in download manager from the browser.

I know that what I downloaded was an executable file. I suspect that even with the download manager, you would download an executable.

After the download - install and play. I did have to activate the game online - I think through D2D servers because I don't think that Serious Sam requires online activation - it is an 8-9 year old game.

When launching the game, it's just like launching any program from your computer. No web/proprietary launcher. Nothing like Steam.

Save games are in ProgramFiles.

Yep, the download manager downloads an executable just like if you download it w/out the manager w/ firefox.

WOW, what a novel idea.

 

Downloading LEGITIMATE software over the Internet.

 

With prices like this it might even catch on.
