Definitely on par with Valve now for my mind. Finally some developers doing there own thing and not what they are told to.

What for the gamers that only buy buy retail games?
I admit that this is the way of fighting piracy on PC but they should think about everyone.
They should think of better ways of doing this, like using net verification codes for their games like GTA IV does..

DarshD Thing is retail did it to itself by supporting PC games terribly for ages (stocking few titles, not separating used from new, relegating the PC section to some dark corner of the shop, etc), although I think they situation may have improved at least somewhat recently.

Gamestop recently purchased Impulse (a semi-popular digital distributor), though, so, there's a good chance it will become as prominent for most publishers as it is for Paradox.

If you haven't noticed, boxes are terrible now, anyway, so there's little reason to buy them. I was resistant at first but now I'm in love.

Digital isn't so much about fighting piracy as it is about compensating for the poor retail situation.

[link name=chautemoc]http://www.neoseeker.com/members/chautemoc/" class="mention[/link] , I agree with you. The retail situation of PC gaming market is really terrible . I miss the days of Doom, Halo when PC was greatly organized than console market but now everything is upside down..Digital FTW, I guess...
