Ships Ahoy - Empire: Total War

Steam is now offering digital distribution of Empire: Total War, the latest installment in Creative Assembly's Total War RTS series. Also a launch trailer from the game is posted on ActionTrip, FileFront, Gaming Bomb, and MyGameTrailers. This hopefully means retailed boxed versions of the game can now be authenticated online so they can be played, as VE3D says this has prevented the game from being playable until now. Presuming this has all been cleared up, here's a bit on the game:

Dominate the 18th century on land and sea. Command the seas, control the land, forge a new nation, and conquer the globe. Empire: Total War takes the Total War franchise to the eighteenth century Age of Enlightenment a time of political upheaval, military advancements, and radical thought, captured in stunning detail in Empire: Total War.

Empire: Total War introduces a host of revolutionary new features, including true 3D naval combat. For the first time in the Total War series, you will be able to intuitively command single ships or vast fleets upon seascapes rich with extraordinary water and weather effects that play a huge role in your eventual glorious success or ignominious defeat. After pummelling your enemy with cannon fire, close in to grapple their ship and prepare to board, taking control of your men as they fight hand-to-hand on the decks of these wooden behemoths.

In the forums, gamers are saying load times in the release version are much better. One guy said in the demo it took him 3mins+ to load a battle, but the same thing in the released version took him under 30 seconds.

If you do decide to buy it, go to Gamestop or wherever. DL rates are terrible and getting worse as the day goes on.
