Sync: If you've visited a few gaming forums lately, you might see players sounding off over THQ's Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II, a new fantasy strategy epic for the PC. What's the issue?
It's not the game-play found in this Canadian-made title that's the problem -- in fact, Relic Studios' new game has garnered an impressive score of 85.40%, averaged out from 31 publications listed at GameRankings.com -- but the mandatory Windows Live ID registration is irking some players.
You see, Dawn of War II requires players to sign up for a Games for Windows - LIVE profile (Windows Live ID) if they don't have one already -- even to play an offline, single-player game. If you don't sign up, you can't play the game.
We thought we'd go to the source to find out why this is required.
