Two excellent, and very different, games at extremely low prices, both are on disc and are also redeemable via Steam and Dawn of War 2 also uses Games for Windows Live.

At this price I personally think these games are a no brainer.

This uses GFWL as the OP said. But what happens when GFWL shuts down in a few months time?

It's a steamworks game, and therefore can still run via Steam

Last I saw it wasn't. Are you sure. I thought only DoW2: Retribution was Streamworks so far.

Heat added, thanks OP, DoW][ pants game...

Yes, it is steamworks.

You're not convincing me. Just to be clear I'm talking about DoW 2. Even looking at the Steam forum, I see no evidence that the game has been converted to Steamworks. If you actually *have* the game and have played it without GFWL, that would be great, but just repeatedly saying that it is Steamworks does not make it so. I hope you're right and that the Steam page and forums are just a little out of date, but I need something more to go on.

Dear me, you insinuate I simply sit here and persistently state "STEEEMWURKS", if you had asked for evidence I'd have provided it.

Sorry, I completely missed your reply a week ago. Just to clear this up for anyone finding this in the future (I doubt anyone is *still* looking at it now), it seems like it uses Steamworks for authentication so that you *have* to activate it on Steam (even hard copies), but is still reliant on Games for Windows Live for profiles/game saves/achievements/multiplayer and whatever.

Does this sound right?

That being the case, when the GFWL service ends DoW 2 will stop working properly, though the single player will probably work with an offline GFWL profile... I guess.

Pretty much, yeah, once GFWL goes down I assume you can run the multiplayer through clients such as GameRanger, however, I'm not sure though. But yeah, hopefully Value and Microsoft sort something out there.
