    same here i did not get bioshock (did not even bother to download the DRM cracked installer free ver )

    i never buy games that will not start if demon tools or other disk loading tools are on the pc (Securom is anoying on that one if the option has been turnd on as not all Securom protected games are the same some Securom games are just there to make sure the disk is in the drive, but as long as i can NoCd the game like c&c 3 T wars i buy them)

    Well I have been very excited over Read Alert 3 for some time now and with about a month or two till release I have been getting more and more on the edge of my seat. Well unfortunately it looks like I will not be buying Read Alert 3... why you may ask. For the same reason I do not have bio shock or mass effect, SecuROM. I have a lot of other programs on my pc and I am not having some bs tell me what I can and can not run on my dame computer. On top of that I am not bending over backwords for some half ass anti pirate tech that does not even stop them! Hell I would pay $100 for a dam pirated copy just so I could play the thing without any problems. Aslo limiting my installs is totall bs. I have a lot of computers for when I do different **** and I also formatt and move **** all the time this is BS and they have ruined all my excitement for this game

    I might just be strange but I really don't like cheap tarts in party outfits.

    I've not played any of the games with draconian-mode securom to date (though bioshock is as much down to knowing my graphics card isn't up to it now as anything else since they eased off) and certainly won't be rushing out to spend £30 on this one with more of the same.

    Wow, they actually made a command and conquer game I won't even consider buying. I love the series and I own all of them besides Kane's Wrath, Renegade and the expansion to Generals. I'm really sad that I'm not going to get to play this, but I'm not going to support the use of SecuROM. If they want to treat people like they expect everyone to be a pirate, they can go ahead as long as it doesn't get in my way I'll deal with it. Sadly, SecuROM does and therefore I'm not going be bothered to purchase this game.

    Copy protection is fine. I respect that. DRM however is a completele different beast and has to be tackled in a different manner. It installs system drivers on your machine. Sine when does a game need system drivers installed to run? I don't want no friggin system drivers installed on my computer without my consent. It's my computer. The day EA buys me the computer for playing their game I will agree with all the DRM they can cook up. I'm not spending time and money getting a decent gaming computer only for some rotten game developer/publisher to mess it up again.

    You can't fight disrespect for property with disrespect for property! That's called a war. And is EA in war with us?

    Are you seriously calling Gina Carano a cheap tart? She'd kick your ass in a second!! She is an undefeated MMA fighter you know. ;)

    After my encounter with Spore, I've come to the conclusion that I simply don't give a **** anymore.

    If it fails to work THEN I might give a ****, but until then? Not gonna happen.

    Especially considering I haven't needed to put the CD in for Spore, aside from to install it.

    The way EA is going about this I would not be surprised if Warhead came with DRM too :sigh:

    well, original Crysis had activation DRM, so this one probably also has it.

    Crysis has activations? :eyebrow:

    I just accomplished to install and play Crysis in Vista with the router turned off.
    My Vista never had Crysis installed before and without internet connection how did Crysis activated itself?
