On the screenshots front, I just noticed that if you take a screenshot in the game then Steam uses it as a background picture when you select the game
Small mode 4tw.

Oh ... look. Yet another 'new internet thing' which will require bandwidth. Too bad places like Canada, and now in the US(AT&T and Charter) are putting heavy, punitive bandwidth caps in place.

Maybe steam should get involved in this.
I dont know about Charter but AT&T's caps are no worse than Comcasts (250GB).

If that were not the case, all the games that used Starforce (which took a year to crack) and UbiDRM (took a month to crack) would have presumably sold a lot more than they did.
God I remember that. What was it? Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory? Took a year and change to crack it because it used a brand new version.

Game companies frequently infrequently remove the software copy protection in a patch after a game has been out for a year or so and/or released in a GOTY edition (often with no fanfare at all the protection is removed).

The point is that software copy protection is all about protecting sales of newly released software because that is when unit sales are greatest.
Fixed.

These release date checks are set to unlock at midnight LOCAL time; so it unlocks in New Zealand 24 hours before it unlocks in Hawaii.
Another reason this crap sucked. I know some friends that got the PC version and could not play it for 3 more hours because they were ET and it wouldn't unlock till midnight PT. Yet their console friends were playing it as soon as they got home.

DRM is fine with me as long as...

1. It does not run when I am not playing the game.

2. It does not collect demographic info about me (even if they swear it's anonymous)

3. It does not look at anything else on my PC besides the game that it is for and only then to verify that it is a legitimately purchased copy.

I have never found DRM from a major publisher that comes close to meeting those criteria.
And how can you be sure the DRM does these things? Trust the people that put the DRM there and are calling you a theif?

One time activation for offline play, basically like most games these days.
Wish they would do that for AC2. Their servers fucked up last week and people could not play for 2 days.
Brotherhood DRM scheme was exported to AC2 also. Now AC2 needs online One time activation for offline play. Please correct me if im wrong
You are. AC2 still requires you to login every time you launch the game.

You just do not need to be online after that.

Apparently its being released today in other countries. 5 days before the US.

EDIT:
EU March 18, 2011
NA March 22, 2011

Well shit... the fools across the pond got something before we did.

At least I got it on Steam... people reporting that they oversold the special editions and people with preorders from LAST YEAR are getting canceled.

That might have been my link, I think. Reading there and IO9 is downright painful these days. It's like they designed it for an ipad, and fuck everyone else.
Um no. The new site design actually works **WORSE** on iOS devices. You can not scroll the right part where the list of topics is on a touch screen. Hell you can not scroll it if you have a mouse that has no wheel.

"Of course the people who make the game vote for their own game. That's how it works in the Oscars, that's how it works in the Grammy's and why I'm betting that Barack Obama voted for himself in the last election."
Thats a quote from EA on this topic. It just goes to prove they have no clue as to whats going on because that analogy just makes no sense.

I'm sure that on some forums somewhere, there are people bitching about Square really doing this out of pure greed or laziness.

Also how exactly is this a sequel to Dragon Age Origins? Game starts off in roughly the time frame Origins does, and why is Flemmeth this Leather chick with JRPG hair, and then when you meet her in Origins she's this little crazy homeless looking women. And I won't bring up Sten's people.
I was the same way too. WTF? Flemmeth? And that was only in the demo. The simplified darkspawn as well.

What was really awesome is living on the East Coast and getting the game at midnight and going home and finding your game wouldn't unlock until midnight PST.
LOL wow. that really takes the cake. I guess midnight releases are going the way of the dodo now.

Can you imagine the shitstorm if Valve did this blocking access to Steam? Bad precisent,EA!

If you logged into the Steam forums with your Steam account, Valve would probably do this too.
Valve would have a sueing shitstorm if they did this being that Valve does not own all the games on their service.

They ban people from singleplayer Starcraft though, which is undoubtedly the main draw for some people. I know I played through the campaign and then uninstalled.

Can you be more specific SV? I thought you could still play offline, you would just lose access to achievements. Blizzard usually doesn't ban an entire battle.net account, they ban on a game by game basis IIRC. Obviously there are exceptions for fraud/RMT/etc.

I'm not sure this is exactly what you are looking for Verno, but any cheating in the single player game gets you banned. There are tons of articles on it if you Google it, I just picked one.

And this is the exact reason I will not touch SCII and (sadly) D3.
