I was in the process of posting this when I noticed the deal/news/graphic was pulled from the front page. I assume they're still going to go through with it, though.

Metacritic = 79 I think I will pass. I don't really dig flight sim/aerial combat games.

Yeah, even when I was posting this, the price was still $49.99. Now that it's $24.99, it's official enough.

I agree, though, this is a definite skip.

Woah woah woah. Doesnt this game have some ridiculous install policy. Even with Steam you have a limited number of installs. Its crazy. Some people report that they couldnt install again after just three reinstalls. And whats worse is that Im not sure if the company will fix that. Id rather pay like $10 or less for a game that has that sort of DRM. Frak that.

To top it all off, the DRM is the infamous Starforce.

Ya...I think...HELL NO. Its a sexy game but I say dont screw yourself by getting a game that doesnt even let you take advantage of Steam properly. Weekend sale should be better. This is a scam. Haha.

Starforce made my decision really easy. I just dont understand some developers/publishers, steam is a form of drm.

Yep -- you need a connection at all times to play. Otherwise, no dice.

I despise all forms of DRM, but I will at least tolerate Steam when the price of the game is ridiculously good. Losing access to my collection of $5 games when Valve goes tits-up won't be the end of the world...but paying $25 to have Starforce rape and pillage my computer? Hell no.

Here's to hoping a Civ IV sale makes it way back again sometime soon, the recent Civ 5 announcement got me interested in the series again.
