Not too worried. Mass Effect was cracked; Spore will be too. Never did get around to buying Mass Effect though so I can't say the crack actually works... I wasn't as interested in Mass Effect as I am in Spore, so the copy protection was more than enough to put me off of Mass Effect altogether. I haven't played a Bioware title yet that I didn't love (stopped at NWN2 and MotB), but that doesn't mean I'm going to tolerate it when Bioware blatantly treats me like a criminal. They only hit me because they love me, right? I'm not a pirate myself but I can totally understand why people would want to be a criminal for free instead of paying to be treated like one. It was bad enough getting software that assumes the user is a criminal, but now the software comes with a parole officer too? Right now, it seems like PC developers want
to make it harder to be a legit customer than to be a pirate. Kinda makes sense, with developers shifting more and more to consoles and their cheaper development costs. Kill PC gaming with ridiculous copy protection, stop developing for the PC and blame the consumers and their greedy little pirating hands - abandon customers and still look like the good guy. It's just as easy to pirate console titles, so why are console developers not complaining as much?
Huh? I'm sorry, I was thinking about cake.
