Steam itself seems pretty solid for your security.
I've purchased a couple of things myself already. No complaints there.

It's an excellent service, and I hope it continues to grow.

Is there any way to buy stuff on Steam without using a credit card? Or paypal?

I bought one of those pre-paid credit cards to get Audiosurf.

Thanks for your opinion, Gauph :)
Did you play with or without the new update, that added the Dwarf Warrior and Elf Archer among other things?

Oh, I did give the new update a try.
It changed some features around. I think they're taking steps in the right direction.

If you're still curious about the game, you should go for it. I felt a little unfulfilled but plenty of other people enjoy the game well enough.
I'm a little more hardcore than these folks I think. Obviously, I didn't go in expecting Dwarf Fortress level of complexity but it still fell a little short of what I can only maintain is my standard.  :P

More to the point, I figure if they had several more of these updates, we just might have something half-decent.
At the current point in time, the only reason you'd go a full round is to get a highscore and brag about it, maybe even tell some stories. But what good is that to me when I'm very certain that my experience isn't unique enough for me to bother sharing it? Does anyone care about my highscore? I doubt my having 2439 points matters to you.


Man, I keep trying to conclude but I keep diving right back in.
In any case, the updates sound good, but they don't actually add a lot.
I guess I don't feel it's my place to make a 100-point list of suggestions for these guys. The extent of changes I would necessarily make would turn it into something completely different, and that wouldn't be quite fair to all the people who enjoy it as it is already.

That's about all.  :)

Thank you for that, i was planning to buy it but i was going on your word that is a very un-depth.. not deep?... shallow? game. If you are a type a person (Gauphastus) to go extreme dwarf fortress then i think this game might be for me but i will wait a bit for some more updates with the game before i start buying the game and telling stories about it with my friends.
