Valve and Atari have teamed up to launch a bunch of titles on Valve's popular distribution platform Steam. Starting today, and initially limited to North America, the following titles will be available;

Act of War: Direct Action
Act of War: High Treason
ArmA: Combat Operations
Atari 80 Classics in 1
Death to Spies
Desperados 2: Cooper's Revenge
Indigo Prophecy
RollerCoaster Tycoon 3: Platinum
Tycoon City: New York

Whilst unlikely to make a massive dent in conventional publishing, we hear Atari will also be releasing The Witcher, NeverWinter Nights 2 and NeverWinter Nights 2: Mask of the Betrayer, so those of you with high-speed broadband should probably start downloading Steam now. You might be done in time for the New Zealand release.
