    If all 32 make it from the lobby to the game you win 1 million dollars?

    Greetings!
    Its a mess.
    For the full experience you need to have:
    Securom is needed for online authentication, although this time it has no limited activations. Steam version also comes with it.
    Another trademarked 2008 NO BUY from me.

    i'll call you, simply on the usage of fail. Use the word fail to describe anything outside of humor your an idiot.

    Instant Showstopper, SecuROM, I'd never thought I'd live long enough to see something that I dislike more than Jack Thompson. I guess they're like cockroaches you stomp one and another one scurries out of a hole in the wall

    the game is available to be purchased through steam, but the online features are provided (managed? not sure what to call it) by windows live.

    i think this one is going to be a torrent for me, i am not going to give rockstar money so they can treat me like a criminal. hopefully online play will work in the cracked version.

    Sounds good.

    Now I just have to actually get the game.

    Hopefully it will be here by the middle of text week. :) (Pre-orders tend to show up a day early :D )
