Men of War on Steam
Good luck with that patch. I really love Men of War(I even went as far as pre-ordering it from britain though I live in Canada, since I loved the open beta so much) so I hope it can succeeds as much as possibly can
It does make me wonders though. Have you guys ever thought of Valve software's Steam online distribution platform? In fact, I admit I was surprised to see no signs of Men of War on Steam, as I thought it would have been the kind of games to see presence there.
I'd say it'd be something to give a thought at, as Steam ties games to a player account on it. That way, a copy of a game bought on Steam can only be played by the account's owner, which permits to forego physical copy-based DRM which permits some developpers and publishers to cut on a lot of the different versions of a given game out there, which I hear can make patching easier(I know it was instrumental in the decision for Relic entertainment, the developpers behind the Dawn of War series, to go from physical copy protections to the type of authentication offered by Steam.
Plus, since a game authentification is tied to the player's account rather than computer as is the case with some DRMs, a player can reinstall the game as often as they want... even being able to re-download it from Steam itself should they ever lose their CD(which I know is one of the service's most loved features amongst many players who makes uses of it). Also, Steam even offer players the possibility to download the patches for their games directly from it.
