On the NPD charts for the week ending February 28, Dawn of War II reigns supreme. But on the more current Steam and Direct2Drive ones? It's all Empire: Total War, baby.

Yes, proving that the PC market's thirst for epic strategy titles is as strong as ever, Creative Assembly's latest Total War title has come in at #1 on both the digital download charts. I'd write more about this, but I've got a war in India to wage. You understand.
