What about the UFO Trilogy? (it's also on sale) Worth it for 10 bucks? Afterlight seems specially interesting...

Does that also mean that you'll be able to install the EE patch over the original Witcher without providing registration info? Just curious.

(*insert inevitable clarafication in two months time when Valve announces doubtless discount for existing owners and more content for the original Left 4 Dead*)

I hope you're right, though I wouldn't hold my breath.

For the record, I'm not a Valve fanboy. I did believe Left 4 Dead would be better supported, though. My mistake.

It makes me feel like the first L4D was an overpriced tech demo. It's probably the first time I feel "cheated" by Valve. And for that reason, I'll most likely not get this, and I may even reconsider buying anything on Steam from now on.

Actually, Derek raises a good point. He's a developer, after all (and you may not believe it, but he knows what's he's talking about - ask him about the early BC3000AD's release, if you will), and the fact that a major feature has been implemented roughly a month from release doesn't sound too good, as far as the quality of the release version goes. I, for one, would expect it to be buggy, as in "STALKER buggy".

Of course, STALKER is a great game now, after a few patches. The same may be true of ArmA 2, but we'll have to wait and see.

For a second there, I thought "Light of Altair" would be some spin-off of Assassin's Creed.

I reinstalled Starfleet Command: Orion Pirates recently, and I'd forgotten how fun it is.

As for this game, it seems hopelessly dumbed-down. I'll pass.

Why "The Zeno"? The name of the game is actually "Zeno Clash".

Here's another lost sale. I passed on the DLC content for the first NWN because of online activation DRM, and the one you're going to use now seems to be even more draconian. So, you lost a sale then, and now.

News Comments > On Riddick DRM
40. Re: On Riddick DRM Apr 16, 2009, 13:48 Wolfox
 
-2k Removed all the DRM from Bioshock about 10 months after release.

No, it didn't. Securom is still there (there was no patch to remove it), they just removed the limit on activations - but activations are still necessary to play the game, and Securom is firmly in place.

-EA is planing to remove the disc check from BF2 with the 1.5 patch(if it ever comes out)

Actually, no one knows if the disc check will be actually removed or substituted by some other form of DRM. The messages I've seen have been ambiguous so far, enough for me to not hold my breath.

That being said, Massive did remove the disk check in the latest patch for World of Conflict, and BIS did the same with Armed Assault. I'm sure there have been other cases, but not enough to make it the norm, instead of the exception.

They gain the illusion of control (and even that is debatable). But keep in mind: this is a "Dilbert" world. These decisions, therefore, are bound to happen; it is up to us to try to stop the madness (by speaking with mouth, keyboard, and wallet), though that may be a "sisyphic" effort.

Well, when (and if) they remove the DRM, I might consider buying this game. Until then, no sale.

News Comments > Steam GTAIV Patched
7. Re: Steam GTAIV Patched Apr 14, 2009, 17:18 Wolfox
 
Personally, I found Saints Row 2 (PC) to be more fun than GTA4.

I haven't played GTA4, but Saint's Row 2 is definitely lots of fun, and I found it to be more fun than both Vice City and San Andreas.

News Comments > Ships Ahoy - Demigod
10. Re: Ships Ahoy - Demigod Apr 14, 2009, 14:38 Wolfox
 
After reading their gamer's bill of rights and seeing news of their GOO DRM, my general impression of Stardock's claim of no DRM is they really mean "our DRM isn't implemented via drivers!"

That sounds about right. They do have DRM, but it's "DRM Lite", so to speak. Stardock claims that the CD/DVD versions are DRM-Free (and they are), but if you want to get patches (and you usually NEED to - for instance, the DVD version of Demigod doesn't have LAN play enabled), you're forced to use Impulse (and hence, its own flavor of activation), which is definitely a form of DRM. It's less intrusive, and driver/rootkit free, but still DRM.

News Comments > Demigod Early
9. Re: Demigod Early Apr 14, 2009, 00:54 Wolfox
 
This game is fun. My favorite demigod so far is Torchbearer... It's fun to freeze your enemies in one game, and fry them in the next.

Still gotta try the other demigods, though. I think the next I'll play with is Lord Erebus, the Vampire Lord. I hope he isn't a Malkavian, though.
