Gamewatch: Warhammer 40,000 Dawn of War II Retribution, RIFT

It's no time for peace, respite, or forgiveness in Relic's Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II Retribution (PC), a standalone sequel to realtime tactics-focused Dawn of War II and its followup, Chaos Rising. Retribution adds a new race (the Imperial Guard), a campaign that supports all six races in single-player, and--crucially for some of you--swaps Microsoft's Games For Windows Live for Steam, including full Steam achievement support. ETA: 3/1

If you'd rather sample the latest online roleplaying game, Trion's RIFT (PC) places you at the epicenter of factional hostilities and efforts to fend of extra-planar invasions. RIFT apparently lets you custom spec your character's profession, then swap professions (up to four) to optimize PvE and PvP play. Speaking of PvP, RIFT also supports inter-server warfare via "Warfronts," allowing you to battle others in world PvP. ETA: 3/1
