Still not sure why they can not do this the other way around with PSN download codes.

Technically, the retail version of DAO did have DRM. It was just a rudimentary disc-check + CD-key, though.

I thought that was what I said. Disc-check is copy protection but not DRM. DRM means managing access after the sale digitally.
"Digital rights management (DRM) is a term for access control technologies that are used by hardware manufacturers, publishers, copyright holders and individuals to limit the use of digital content and devices"

Disk checks are a form a DRM. They regulate and control how you can use their software by requiring the disk to be in the drive after the software is installed. DRM is anything that prevents you from using the software outside the physical requirement of said software (installing it it your hard drive).

This reminds me of when Assassin's Creed 2 servers went down last month and Ubi took almost a day or more to even say that there was a problem.

Gonna get the PS3 version to get the PC version free from linking Steam/PSN accounts. PS3 has split screen, which will be great for friends coming over.
I thought about that then did some thinking... when am I ever going to want to play this game with a controller.

Just pre-ordered it on Steam.

DRM is generally the first thing I check before a purchase. And if it's not something I like, I find something else to play...
First thing i check before buying something from Steam: Are there cracks and patches to free my game from Steam? If yes, i buy. If no, i wait until i find a crack.

I dont get the hate for Steam from people nowadays.
Sure it used to be pretty terrible, but nowadays Steam is fantastic IMO.I Dont have any problem playing my games through Steam.
Same here. I have no idea why everyone is still sandy vag over Steam still.

This whole campaign of cryptographic buzz is very amazing. It's even more amazing that they expect their potential customers to actually use their brains, which is against the usual marketing strategies today...
Yes, the lack of puzzle 'platform' games is really lacking. The closest thing lately was Assassin's Creed. But that was very low on the puzzle part.

To many "BOOM HEADSHOT!" games out there.

No idea. I have never used male shep. Definitely won't once I heard how bad the voice actor was compared to fem shep.

I like male better for Paragon, but whenever I go renegade, femshep is absolutely the way to go. Jennifer Hale is FANTASTIC with the renegade stuff.

Creston
Yes. That is the same reason I pick femshep. Maleshep just does not do the sarcastic/asshole responses that well.

Well to be fair it's his job. You don't generally proclaim your competitors offerings to be superior to your own.
But when you do claim yours is superior it is usually a good idea to state why that is.

"Steam is the most popular, to be sure, but technologically? Let me put it this way. The technology difference between Impulse and Steam is such that any objective developer who looked at the two would overwhelmingly...let's just say the gulf is significant enough that it's not really a 'depends on your point of view' thing."
Could we be any more vague? What does Impulse have that Steam does not? What makes it so different that one would "overwhelmingly" pick Impulse over Steam?

All I can say with GameStop now owning Impulse it will take a cold day in hell for me to buy anything from them now. I refuse to go to their stores because of the pushy sales people ("You want a strategy guide with that?" "No. I actually want to play my fucking game the way it was designed to be played."), their joke of a PC game selection (usually just a floor cart loaded with beat up and opened boxes), selling open products as new, and on the few occasions their crappy trade in price ratio vs what they resell them at.

I've got a question about that PS3 - Free copy for PC promotion they're doing. You have to link your Playstation Network account with Steam to get it, but are they talking about that PSN+ stuff? Or is it just the regular account that you use to login to your PS3 with on startup?

Anyone know?

Creston
PS3 is getting Steam. Not sure how its going to work but I imagine you log in with your Steam account on PS3 and like any other Steam game if its flagged as active on your account its active for all. So once its been activated (linked) on your PS3 just boot your PC and tell it to download.

What sucks is it does not work the other way around. I wish Steam gave you a PSN code or something to download it for PS3.

I will second this. The last two good games I have played came out of that area of the world. Witcher and STALKER.

This is ***STILL*** an issue?!?
