Why do you guys keep buying these games when it's the exact same game all the time with different window dressing. All you do is make Kodick laugh all the way to the bank. It's why most of you would never make it in the air force, because you need to aim higher! And nothing can stop the US Airforce, not even Kodick!
At least warez it or rent it instead, don't support the dark side of the force here.

I just bought the new Dawn of War exp pack at Target, and it uses steamworks. The first one was for sale on Direct2drive as well.Like Steamworks and Games for Windows Live, Impulse Reactor is offered free to developers -- but unlike those services, it doesn't require users to maintain accounts on those systems....When someone uses Steamworks, that leads to everything being on SteamAmen, Brad, now make it work reliably.
Small game developers really need a free, open multiplayer infrastructure like this. Rolling their own solution is too complicated and unreliable, Gamespy is too expensive, and Steam is too restrictive, selective, and excluding. If Stardock can pull this off without dropping the ball or restricting developers who use it, more power to it.
