Noted: And we're not just saying that because Stardock's PR people were kind enough to FedEx us a copy of the game before yesterday's official launch date.

So create a candidate, hire a "smear merchant" and a "fixer" and get your "Barry King Live" on.
Just don't expect your girlfriend to be all that psyched about another video game in the house.
