    Always-on DRM has killed a handful of games for me already, now it appears to have ended up in my one true favourite franchises: S.T.A.L.K.E.R.

    "S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 Requires a ‘Permanent Internet Connection’"

    Link


    Can anyone really, honestly, argue that this is an effective anti-piracy measure?

    Who exactly do we see being inconvenienced by this? The pirates? or the paying customers?


    I wont argue that this DRM is a direct result of piracy. But I will argue that it does very little to actually address piracy, and this excuse that (in the case of Stalker 2) it will act as some kind of cloud-esque content delivery system is simply tacked-on ******** that, given the companies track record for stability in their products, will most likely be an atrocious disaster.

    Well, at least you realised your mistake.

    Being too eager to post my indignant righteousness to do a bit of browsing or use the search function.
