Blizzard artists produce some great work.

For games that don't support Steam Cloud, GameSave Manager is really useful to backup/transfer/restore all your saves across all of their scattered locations, so you don't have to manually track down which directories the saves are at.

I haven't played the game myself yet, but have been looking into it since it seems like a fun concept.

The original release in 2011 was apparently rushed due to publisher pressure. The developer has since separated from the publisher and continued development on the game and claims that "over a year and 50 patches later, the Kingdom Wars is born with twice as many features and countless improvements over the original game."

The original metacritic page probably doesn't give an accurate view of what the game is now. There's actually a new metacritic page that has more positive sentiments from users (no official reviews yet).

There are still bug complaints, but the developers have been active on the Steam discussion forums, and it seems like they are committed to fixing and expanding on the game. With the influx of resources from the Steam release, they might very well have the means to do it.

I might pick this up considering the reasonable $20 price (and current 25% off sale).

KOTOR and Mass Effect are the results of game design catering to the control scheme and audience of consoles.

Blizzard releases quality games and then continues to improve upon them, in pursuit of perfection.  It's one of the things I love about them.

I also use the Linksys WRT54GL with Tomato firmware on it which was recommended to me after my netgear gaming router died a couple years ago.  It hasn't failed me yet and goes through months of continuous usage with no resets needed.
