Op Ed

GOG.com’s Trevor Longino - Diablo III style DRM could make us ‘lose a chunk of gaming history.”
Games like Diablo III with bespoke constantly online DRM could be lost to gaming culture at large if for any reason the games publisher or developer stops supporting that infrastructure. So when you lose that online connection, you lose a chunk of gaming history.

Yes, but old Blizzard would have never done this. This is the new Actiblizz. Don't be surprised to see them start behaving more like EA and killing server support after a year or two. They've already carved a big hunk off the game to get it out the door. I'm sure much, much shorter development cycles and DLC are going to be next for Actiblizz.

Oh bullshit, they're still running Diablo 2. I understand the concern, but to honestly suggest that D3 might get shut down in a year or two is just ridiculous.
If it was EA, it wouldn't be so ridiculous. Do you ever read their list of game shutdowns they put out and frequently update? Some titles on there are just a year old when they shut them down.
