Given that many are looking to digital download platforms for the future of PC gaming, it seems a modern-minded move for Gamecock.

@DugDawg: It's up in the air. Stronghold is an RTS from the days before the term existed, which, presumably, is being updated. I don't think it's better than the total war series, but what do I know. They've got some game where you play a mushroom, which is cute, but not particularly interesting. It'll depend on the writing whether its worth playing.

What's odd to me is that the GC guy who's prolonged his wretched unlife by rising from the corpse of each experimental venture he cooks up in the lab, like GOD games, didn't start the digital download spiel years ago, on the grounds that it was Teh Fewcharz! His digital magazine idea certainly seems to be panning out... 10 years later.
