So did Steam actually supply a CD key? I thought it was done on an 'this account is allowed, this one isn't.. blah blah' sort of thing.


Yep, it does work.

I just tried writing down my Steam key and entering it into IV's client version. It doesn't work. The Steam key is shorter than what is required. Sort of ticked off about it, because I was under the impression Steam was just used to deliver the game, not required to play it. Edit: I'm a moron. You h...

Multiplayer. I've already read the manual a couple of times and feel comfortable with the basics of the game.

So there is a leaderboard functionality. That is a good thing for IV. Should lead to quite a bit of competition and keep people playing for some time.

I believe I saw a screenshot that had it listed in the options as a graphical effect you can turn on or off.

45 min games sound ideal to me. I probably wouldn't mind the fastest speed setting on Defcon 5 through 2, but defintely real-time or the next step up for Defcon 1.

Some of the people on this forum really creep me out with their apparent love for everything nuclear. This is a video game, not an actual nuke warfare simulator.

What do you guys do with the box and manual? Put it out on display or something? I've always flipped through the manual once and then thrown it and the box in the trash. I love digital distribution aslong as it remains cheaper than buying the boxed version.

The game is no bigger than 60 megs. It won't take too long to download, even on 56k.

What would you need hot keys for? You don't build anything and there are few groups of units you move around the map. It's all very simple and no hot keys are needed.

Defcon 2 is just a stopgap until 1. Continued aggression means you will continue to attack using fleets and aircraft before being able to use nukes at Defcon 1.

Company of Heroes is good and all, but it requires an uber computer to run decently. The online can be pretty laggy at times as well. I dunno, good game, but the reviews are making it out to be like the second coming of Christopher.

CGW article suggests patch at release?

Just got my new Computer Gaming World in the mail and it has a 2-page preview on Defcon. An interesting bit says the team is planning a leaderboard and tournament at release as a free patch.

Has anyone heard anything more about a possible patch being released the same day as the game?
