From Dust DRM Also Always On?

The Steam Listing for From Dust has details on the DRM in recently delayed PC edition of the upcoming god-game. This suggests that like Driver: San Francisco, this will use Ubisoft's DRM scheme that requires a persistent internet connection while the game is being played, saying: "Ubisoft Online Service" (thanks Bumpy via DSOGaming). We reached out to THQ to confirm the details on this, but have yet to receive a response (perhaps there's a glitch with their internet connection).

I hope you realize the last games using this drm weren't cracked at all, like hawk2. Crackers were unable to crack it. Waiting to read what excuse you'll use for giving ubisoft the ok so that they can keep escalating this drm. And considering gamers have no other form of protest other than not buying a game I realize many gamers are fucking spineless, too emotionally attached to a fuking game and blind to the fact some publishers are fucking them in the ass. But who cares as long as you can play the next shiny thing, right?

So because I don't prescribe to your specific set of ideals, I therefore must enjoy "getting fucked in the ass" by Ubisoft? Oh and on top of that, you extrapolated that I'm a drooling retard that wants shiny things and has no power to reason beyond that. Alrighty then... And you're still going to insist that you aren't too emotionally invested in this? Rolleyes

I played AC2 on a computer that had no internet connection for a while, trouble-free. I had a great time, and will cherish it as one of the best modern gaming experiences I've had in a long while. If this is getting ass-fucked, I guess I like it.

Hawx 2 WILL get cracked if it hasn't already; I don't really know because it was not high on my list. Which, incidentally is probably why it's crack took longer - it's kinda low on everyone's list. The uncrackable DRM does not exist. It may take weeks, months, or even a year in the case of SC Chaos Theory, but I can wait.

HAWX 2 sucked, no one cared to crack that game. and yes it has a much harder DRM to crack, but again the game is horrid and no one really careded to try and crack it.
