Have you checked out the VIA Grease Monkey service yet? It offers users a way to easily find out what patches they are missing on their games and keeps them constantly updated with the lastest mods, downloads and drivers related to their installed hardware and software. The gang at PCStats has reviewed the service, so check it out.
We're of two minds about the VIA Grease Monkey software. On the one hand, we loved the dedicated server access to patches, the latest demos and add-ons. It's like having a more personalized version of the most popular gaming sites 'membership' services brought right to your desktop. We also liked the patch and driver tracking services (when they worked correctly), and found the user interface easy to use, attractive and informative. The US$14.95 price is easy to swallow for a full year's subscription too.
