Yet again, it should just be said. Don't buy the crap. If enough people decide to do that, they will eventually have to reconsider, or go out of business. I mean really. I saw Settlers 7 on steam this week and was tempted. Then I saw it was by Ubisoft. Then I saw it was using this new DRM scheme. Well bummer. Guess I don't get to play Settlers 7.

Actually the pirates aren't playing this right now either, there's no crack. Their DRM has worked basically. The question remains however, has that magically boosted their sales? Probably not, I don't see AC2 setting the sales charts on fire or even the DD lists for that matter. Months old games are still outselling it.

Fair enough. It still punishes the people paying there bills. I hope folks stop buying ubisoft to show this kind of DRM is just over board.

Yeah thats not really cool. Can you guys just finally admit your way sucks and just strip the drm. Why are you ignoring the obvious? PIRATES dont deal with this. They get around. Stop punishing the people who pay your bills!

Im enjoying the game. Glad I pre-ordered. Saved a few bucks to. Itll be half off in a couple months probably haha.

If your looking for "were trying to be kind of corny" over the top action in a gigantic open world, this is the game.

Unless you want to be competitive. Your argument was just destroyed. Period. Goodbye.

Sorry ledhead, but my argument stands.

If you want to be competitive, then you must therefore want to make a purchase.

If being competitive is not something you're interested in, then making a purchase is similarly uninteresting to you.

This is all assuming that they are, in fact, making competitive items exclusively for purchase. This would, admittedly, be unfair. I don't mean to spoil the surprise or anything but...life is not fair.

So, in short, lick me.


Wait? When did life become unfair? /s

Can someone explain to me how this is different from the existing DLC support?

It can now all be done with out leaving the game. At least, thats what the brochure says.

I demand developers stop creating games and content that I don't want. They must now only make things that I feel are a wise purchase. I hate feeling like I'm missing out because my friends have content that I don't want.

As long as it makes them money, they will keep doing it lol.

So, how does it rate? My list: (in order...kinda)

Grand Theft Auto 4
Just Cause 2
Mercenaries 2
Far Cry 2
Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas
Saints Row 2
Just Cause

I had to download the JC2 demo 3 friggin' times as the first two ended up being corrupt. You'd think that by 2010 they could have found a way to check the integrity of a file before you hit the Download button...
JC2 is good but I'm still fond of GTA4 and Mercs2, even though the latter could seriously be awarded 'Best of Show' in BugFest '09...Far Cry 2 still stands only because it's so easy to get into...and out of...at least on my system...


=-Rigs-=

Not a bad list there. Id almost say id agree with your order here minus Mercs 2 and JC 2 since I never played it. But seeing your list inspires me to believe this could be a cool game.

So you guys dig the demo huh? I didnt bother getting it. I thought the first game was ok, but the second looks pretty interesting, and improved. So far it appears as if it has made improvements hehe.

Ive been aching for a new good sandbox game thats not GTA.

Steam is not the same as Ubsioft's and now EA's new fandangled DRM.
I don't dispute that. In some ways it is a little better (offline mode), and in some ways it is much worse (universal kill switch).

If my internet connection goes down, I do not get booted out of the game with Steam.
No, but you won't be able to launch another game when you exit the current one if Steam refuses to enter offline mode which it does due to various restrictions.

I can select "Start up in Offline mode" in the Settings and never have to connect to a Steam server to play any of my singleplayer games.
Saying "never" is very misleading as the limits and bugginess of offline mode make its permanence very unlikely.

If Valve goes out of business today, I'm not locked out of any of my Singleplayer games on Steam.
You will be locked out if you ever want to install them on another PC, or on the same PC after a fresh installation of the OS, or if your last login to Steam failed to save the information, or if you want to use another Steam account, etc.

Yes, if you successfully entered offline mode the last time you used Steam and you never change your OS or your Steam files don't change, then you should still be able to play your Steam games offline assuming that the Steam client doesn't screwup as it has historically with offline mode for many people due to bugs. But, that is still pretty restrictive DRM.

I am not denying Steam is DRM; but it is far less obtrusive than the BS Ubisoft and EA are using.
It is more intrusive because at least EA and Ubisoft's DRM only affect games individually. With Steam's DRM, a single failure affects all of your games not just one.

Since half life 2, i have bought roughly 120 games through Steam. In that time span. I have not yet once experienced an issue with not being able to access my game due to Steam being offline, or vanished.

The only problem i had that i can recall of was a recent cdkey not working, which was fixed eventually (steam support can take forever sometimes).

But thats my own personal experience. Im sure others may have some horror stories. I didnt even have trouble with the HL2 release, and that was merely just them getting overloaded with an expected demand, or improper preparation.

Ya know? One thing about the blues news threads, everyone always seems way to hostile. Makes for some fun reading sometimes though.
