In news that ought to please many PC gamers, THQ has revealed that the upcoming Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II expansion, Retribution, will be dropping Games for Windows Live in favor of Steamworks. GFWL is hailed by most PC gamers as "A load of old shit," so this is certainly a good thing.

Retribution lets players finally take the Orks through their own campaign, and will also introduce a mysterious new race. Previous expansions have always proved very popular, and it seems that Retribution will be even more beloved for freeing fans from the shackles of Microsoft. 

What do you think? Happy days, or are you sad because you won't get your CHEEVOS!?

I'm all by himself because Max went to Asia to pull the teeth out of impoverished children. I don't order old trading cards from the internet, but I did replay Metal Gear Rising, start re-watching my favorite TV show, and I'm bracing myself for angry Nintendo fans.more

Review: Gods Will Be Watching

Gods Will Be Watching is a tough game. It puts the player in positions that they'd rather not be in and asks them to make difficult choices. In order to succeed at a mission, you may have to do unthinkable things, betray your morals, and become a monster just to survive a little longer.
