I can see a lot of people with laptops wanting a nice game to run on their 3D-challenged machines. And really, there are only so many hack and slash RPG's out there for PC, Diablo II being (arguably) still the best.
Yeah, my major gripe with Deadwood is that it's not very episodic like some of the other HBO shows. It's almost like they took a giant movie and just cut it up into 1-hour chunks. There's no real closure at the end of any of the episodes.
