News Comments > Far Cry 2 DRM Follow-up
50. No subject Oct 15, 2008, 12:49 Paketep
 
This was specially funny:

- Ubisoft is committed to the support of our games, and additional activations can be provided.

- Ubisoft is committed to the long term support of our games: you’ll always be able to play Far Cry 2.

Sure, Ubi is the industry's shining beacon of customer support. Buying a game from Ubi is like playing Russian Roulette, specially when they decide to use these kind of DRM schemes.

Not buying, thank you.

I'll pray he doesn't get the rights to revisit any of them. He lost his touch long long ago.

It promised, until Midway fired SSS with three months to go to save a couple of dollars.

It could have been the true Empire Earth succesor (instead of the Meh game from Mad Doc and the abysmal EE3). Midway killed it for cash.

News Comments > PC EndWar Planned?

That's been known for quite some time.

Also, it's Ubi. As someone said here, they will port it to everything, including your refrigerator. And it will be buggy as hell, plus the DRM won't let 20% of the people play without a crack, and Ubi won't fix it for months (if ever).

Wouldn't want to try this game at a LAN party. I'd have all my neighbours waiting at the door to kill me the following day.

News Comments > Molyneux: PC Game Market "In Tatters"
53. No subject Oct 5, 2008, 21:25 Paketep
 
Molyneux's last good game was Dungeon Keeper. That's from fucking 1998.

I'd say Molyneux is the one in tatters.

A full year later. The game was always designed for 360 then ported to Windows a year later. Mark Rein is a liar.

Ported to Windows is a tad too much for what they did. I would rather call it bugged to Windows.

Yet more bullshit from Epic. No surprises there.

The good news for them is that it won't be difficult at all to make GoW2 a better game than GoW.

No evolution. We want extinction for the DRM, and also for the idiot suits that push it!

Hamst3r:

2. http://www.securom.com/support/SecuROM_Uninstaller.zip

It works. Just run it with admin rights and it'll delete all the files, services and registry keys.


I just installed a game with SecuROM. Played minutes. Uninstalled it. The registry keys are still there.

I run the "uninstaller". It told me this:

The DRM data could not be vacated because the application or other applications require it for proper operation.

Some of the keys are still there. And no, I don't have any other SecuROM games in this computer.

Fuck you, Cevat. And don't cry and whine about Piracy when you again don't sell half what you expected.

Hamst3r, these are the kinds of things you need to do to purge SecuROM from your machine:

http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/forum/98241-25-remove-securom-malware-uninstalling-bioshock-demo

Not exactly user friendly, is it?.

Also, they will not help you remove the shit after you uninstall the game. I had a conversation quite like this one when I tried to remove SecuROM after the Crash Day as well:

http://forums.guru3d.com/showthread.php?t=169832

Oh, well. At least they don't install a service anymore.

Not as bad as StarForce, true. But a useless POS just the same, one that doesn't stop piracy at all.

(also, it's funny that they badmouth StarForce)

And here I was thinking that "buying" Spore was really "renting" it.

EA should make up their minds. They know they want to be bastards, they just don't know how.

Yeah, 1%. Of course, because we expected that 100% of the buyers would use up the 3 activations in the first week, right?.

Is more bullshit all we're going to get from EA?

(I know, yes)

Oh, they can make more than enough to survive. It's just not enough for the greedy bastards at Microsoft.

Also, destroying the Age brand helps them sink more the PC platform and favors the 360. PCGA at its best!
