Congrats to Steven and the rest of Soldak Entertainment.
Desticato, your gaming history sounds very similar to mine...
It (DoP) also stands out as the exception to a rather ugly trend: AAA titles being sold for as much (or more) online when one of the original touted advantages of digital distribution was lower costs for the consumer.
I think this is usually a result of what basically amounts to blackmail from B&M stores. "If you undercut us online, we won't stock any of your games". The situation is going to change sooner or later, when online delivery becomes the norm. You can already see through services such as Steam and Gametap that older titles are more immune to this kind of crap.
