So I relented & grabbed the X-Com pack.

Despite the dated graphics I was once again hooked as my idiot soldiers got gunned down one by one by some little grey alien guy.
Is Microprose still around?
I know I'm not the only one who would buy a re-make with modern-day graphics.

Out of curiosity, when moving to a new computer, do you have to download all your games again or can you just transfer the files like Steam?

From the FAQ...

How many licenses or activations do I get? All licensing has a limit to the number of simultaneous activation to protect the product. However our customer service will see to it that should you encounter a need for more licenses that you are accommodated.

So looks like you can move it around - just can't have it installed in more than one place at a time. At least, that's how I read it.

^^ In addition to that, having read some customer reviews. Some games do not like it when you change your hardware. One reviewer noted how only after one install, he changed his hardware, and the game would no longer install. He had to go through D2D support to get it to install again.
