    Alright, so I might buy Bioshock. Only thing is, well, can it be played when steam is in offline mode? I know once you activate it for the first time you must use internet. Other than that, I'm getting Bioshock and probably Sniper Elite.

    I get you're going to get it off STEAM, but this is VALVe GAMES AND MODS.

    Edited:

    And no, you don't need internet after activation.

    Although it's apparently buggy as hell, you can still play any singleplayer game during offline mode on Steam.

    Your pretty desperate aren't you? Befriending activation codes. That's just sad.

    no it doesn't, just because you can purchase it via steam doesn't make it a VALVe developed game.

    truth has been told.

    Also I've tried CD-keys of several games bought retail, also shown in the steam store. All failed.

    Mostly this, but I don't see anything that can't let us to discuss about steam purchases.
