    Blizzard does digital distribution - register your retail keys as well!

    Should have known that when Blizzard went the digital distribution route, they'd even one up Steam at it. Right now, you can digitally download Warcraft 3 + exp and Starcraft + exp, with Diablo 2 + exp coming soon. The best part is you can use your old retail keys from your copies from 10...

    Fallout 3 - Catered towards console fans, Bethesda claims they are "console players"

    http://kotaku.com/387903/fallout-3-lead-were-console-players-now I know after UT 3, a lot of people here are against games that were designed for the console being shoved onto the PC, but it looks like Bethesda is taking that lead. They even site Bioshock as an example they want to follow...

    Mass Effect DRM will be WORSE than Bioshock.. Securom strikes again!

    I hope all of you that were outraged by Bioshock will be even more outraged at this. http://kotaku.com/387846/mass-effect-copy-protection-an-opportunity-to-use-the-adjective-draconian You'll need to remind EA's authentication servers EVERY WEEK you have a legit copy of the game, which...

    More games on Steam - Rainbow Six Vegas 1 and 2

    Ubisoft added Vegas 1 to Steam, normally $20 but $18 for a limited time. I used to own the game on PC, but it was quite a buggy mess, so I'm not sure if I'd really want to recommend it to anyone. But if you don't have any other way to play it, it's a decent game. Vegas 2 is up for preorder...

    No More Heroes Wii - $28 shipped @ Newegg

    Got this off Slickdeals. No More Heroes for the Wii is only $27.99 shipped free (3 day UPS shipping) at Newegg! If it goes out of stock, be patient, it seems to come back in stock again quickly. It's in stock at the time of this posting. $49.99 everywhere else, except Amazon who has it...

    Ubisoft expanding their roster of games on Steam - promises over 40 games!

    Great news! From Steampowered: I can't really think of any Ubisoft games I absolutely loved, but more major publishers on Steam is always a good thing. Splinter Cell is waaaaaaaay overpriced, but Assassin's Creed is up for preorder now, which is good for those of your who wanted to...

    Stardock preparing to complete with Steam via "Impulse"

    Apparently Stardock is in the preview stages of their new Digital Distribution client called Impulse. I would link it, but the site seems to be down. Surprised I didn't see this on [H] before. Stardock claims it will be up and running by April 2008, they have almost every big name PC...

    How is Direct 2 Drive?

    I don't know much about it, other than it has games that Steam doesn't have yet (or ever) like Supreme Commander and Oblivion. I know it doesn't patch automatically, and in their new user FAQ section it claims some mods aren't compatiable with the D2D games, and that "while it used to take a...

    How do you think Steam is coming along?

    I have to say, I am surprised at the way Steam is going... people calling it the future of PC gaming, companies jumping on by the truckload. Even my one complaint, the prices, they are even working hard to rectify that - Two Worlds was $10 a week or two ago, now Prey is $5 this weekend! It's...

    Any Dawn of War Soulstorm impressions?

    Game has been out since Wednesday, can't believe no one on [H] has gotten it yet? I thought we were supposed to be supporting those developers who stick with the PC and only the PC ;) I kid, but seriously, can't believe no one is talking about it yet. Curious to see how all the new stuff...

    How many (legit) PC games do you own?

    Curious to see how many legitmately bought games people here own. Myself, it's more than 100 :( Of course, this is over a span of 10 years, going as far back as Worms and Fallout, as recent as Universe at War. The other problem is that it's REALLY hard for me to pass up a deal on any sort...

    Punkbuster keeps kicking me out of CoD 4... help?

    Not sure what the hell is going on, as the game worked fine last night. Now I'm getting kicked out 30 seconds into a game because Punkbuster has failed to communicate? I've updated PB, it's set to run through my firewall, I really don't get what the problem is because NOTHING has changed...

    Any Battlefield 2142 tips? And a technical question!

    I've had this game for a long time (got it for free!) and decided to give it a whirl today. Wow... after Quake Wars, TF 2, and CoD 4, this game just seems too... slow, maybe? Anybody have any tips on how to possibly get better? The accuracy seems way off too. On an unrelated note, how...

    Is CoD 4 getting the new patch the 360 version gets?

    It's not really adding anything amazing, but all the new kill cams would be interesting as well as the tweaked old school modes (and I guess sniper accuracy? not sure if that is a console only problem). Just wondering if we're getting this in a later, more inclusive patch, or is this the...

    Iron Lore producer explains reasonings behind closure - surprise, it's piracy!

    Wow, sad day indeed... looks like they finished Soulstorm only to close down. They also made Titan Quest, as well. http://www.ironlore.com/index.php They don't say why they closed, but it's always sad to see another small PC only developer (who was actually decent) close up shop. I...

    Dawn of War 2 being worked on by Relic, says source

    Not sure how reliable this source is, but it makes sense since they did farm out Soulstorm to Iron Lore. http://www.videogaming247.com/2008/02/26/relic-working-on-dawn-of-war-2/

    How many people actually *use* Xfire?

    I have it, I boot it up when I start the PC, but it seems that I mostly just use it to record how long I play games... I've never really gotten anyone's Xfire name off a pub I've played on, or an RPG I've quested with them on, it just seems like something I open up simply out of force of habit...

    Universe at War - $24.98 @ Target - Clearance YMMV

    Fiancee was in Target today, browsing the clearance stuff for me, and found out they just added Universe at War to the clearance section. It's YMMV based on availability and price, i.e some Target's may have it for $35. With Target clearance, every week or two the price goes down too, so...

    Peter Molyneux is next to claim PC gaming is in a tragic state, blames WoW + Sims?

    As a hardcore PC gamer (seriously, should see the amount of PC games I own right now) over the years, it is starting to sadden me to see all these developers jump on the bandwagon in kicking the PC while it's down... reminds of a lot of the HD-DVD thing, where one retailer bailed, and then they...

    Wow, starting to notice a trend here - I'm a huge Chris Taylor fan, and it's sad to see that his future also lies in the console now, too. The full interview is up at IGN. It seems that for as much as people say PC gaming isn't dead, no, it's going to turn into more of an afterthought...

    Should review sites re-rate PC games after patches?

    Basacially, when a developer fixes what's wrong with the game or adds more features, should a review site re-review the game, espicially sites tailored to PC games? The Witcher was just announced to get a huge, huge content patch in May which will address all the technical concerns (cut down...

    Not a bad price if you were looking for this, even cheaper than the last time it just came up for $24.90 as part of the madness. Not sure how many people play this online, probably a ghost town just like Gears because of the stupid Live for Windows shit ruining it. Other deals: Infernal...

    Overlord: Raising Hell for the PC in the US... what is the deal with it?

    Motorstorm PS3 - $19.99 used at EB 2/8 - 2/14

    It's the used deal of the week, it's pretty damn decent considering this game is $50 - $60 new everywhere else. I'm pretty sure it will eventually go GH cementing it at a $30 MSRP for a long time. If you have a discount card, you can get another 10%, making it only $18 =O...
