I agree. IV should have gotten a news message up on Steam for Steam users, and an official announcement on the website and forums for IV users.

According to a posting on the Steam forums by one of the head honchos, they are aware of it and are fixing it. They said it would be back soon.

I don't think so. DEFCON is highly unrealistic, and terrorists don't have ICBMs and surface and submarine fleets.

I was recently on a business trip & played DEFCON on my laptop on the plane.
My neighbor looked at me with unease at first. The world grid in green, the unit symbols.. he eased up after my first game was over. Didn't talk the entire time.

I'm not sure this is a accurate. I found http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/s ... p?t=492210, which is from 9/30/06, and clearly is another issue. From http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/f ... y.php?f=94 you can see posts from users having problems, but not anything from Steam.

My apologies. I didn't check the date (10/2/06) of the sticky post.
Yeah uhmm.. anybody's guess now.
Again, sorry about that folks. Didn't mean to post misinformation.
