The problem is that no one has figured out how to break DRM since it ever came out. Also, what happens when you get a new computer? No way to get the DRM from Unbox. I got two/2 duplicate Unbox announcement e-mails.

Maybe they sent you my announcement. I find it hard to believe the Unbox DRM hasn't been broken since every other DRM out there has been broken.
Ha! Really? Did foxdigitalcopy.com's DRM get removed yet? I have a X-Men: First Class (2011) digital copy that I would like to test to play on anything like in Linux.

I think you need to update in order to get the version that basically allows you to bypass the DRM in it. That's what the article seems to imply anyway:

Update the Amazon Unbox application to the latest version. This version includes a one-time license conversion that will make your videos available within Windows Media Player. Open the Unbox application and there will be an "Upgrade" notification you can use to do this. You can also click the "Settings" option in the Unbox menu and select "Check for Amazon Unbox Upgrades."

I agree, however, that it's still horseshit.

The only thing the update does different is leave the license installed after you uninstall Unbox. Unbox has always downloaded the videos and installed the license for WMP or any other media player that supports the DRM, but if you uninstalled Unbox the license was removed leaving you with useless video files.

Hopefully someone will figure out how to strip the DRM, if they haven't already. I've tried searching for a way, but the top results in Google are links to shady shareware, all with different names but identical in looks, that claims to do it, but I'm not installing that.

But my initial complaint was, as an Unbox user, I didn't get notified. If I had not seen the story linked here, I wouldn't have known.

The writing for NOLF was absolutely top-notch. Early on you got such great eavesdropping opportunities as listening to henchmen discuss the socio-economic impacts of criminals drinking beer more than the average person does, and I remember later on at one point you walked in on a tryst between a scientist and... a goat.

And of course in one of the first exchanges of the game...

"You look like you need a monkey!"

For a game that was basically ripping off Austin Powers the writing held up better for NOLF than AP.
That is why the game series was awesome.

Wow...just wow, the guy must have known he had very little time left, and yet he shared some of his final thoughts with us, poetic.

What a hell of a guy.

Well, he did smoke and quit 30 years ago. He knew it was coming and told everyone to don't smoke.

There's nothing on IMDB except it's in development so don't hold your breath on this one. I did not know there was TRON cartoon. Huh, learn somethin' everyday.

If you're into cartoons, then definitely check it out! The animation/writing/characters/voice acting was all well done. The only unfortunate thing is that it only lasted 1 season. It does take 2-3 episodes before it really gets going though, so bear with it.
Hmm, I only saw its pilot episode. It got better? Do I need to see the movie's sequel to make sense of it? I enjoyed the original movie/film.


Yeah it got a lot better. Pilot episode was meh. Once the characters become more fleshed out, it gets a lot better.

You don't need to see the movie's sequel to make sense of it. The timing of Tron Uprising is between the original and the sequel. They throw in some references to some lore that shows up in the sequel, but it's not critical.
Ah, I'll have to check it out when bored (too much other stuff to see and do). Too bad no reruns to record. Did it even have a series ending?

It's early days yet. Give it time. Once Windows starts closing its ecosystem and if this crossplatform API turns out to be the shit, Linux desktops are finally going to be catching on.
I hope so! Come on, Linux.

Alright, but still, I don't think anyone who uses Linux did it so they could play a wide variety of games on, right? Surely they're an incredibly small minority which is why most game developers don't throw them a bone...although surprised that Dying Light has Linux support so maybe it's slowly changing?
Hopefully, Valve's SteamOS fixes this. I remembre Dave Braben and others said no Linux plans back in E3 2014 due to port difficulties, but then they will have a Mac OS X port. Bah!
