Why is C&C 4 doing so well? it was a total fail, i didn't even bother counting how many replies were left on the C&C Facebook page.
NTW jumped a position. Good!
It is a very good game, unlike ETW crashfest.
I was really looking forward to this game, but i tend to wait until PC Gamer has given it's verdict before i buy. However, in reading the reviews it looks like i`ve dodged a bullet!
I purchase all my games, but to be penailsed with persistent DRM? Give over EA.
Indeed, why don't you go the whole hog and play film trailers or show FAST/FBI threats or tell me i can't play it on an oil rig as well all before i can start up the game?!
If you think piracy causes a lost sale, then this sort of DRM absolutely, definately does.
However, kudos for the biggest "./facepalm" i`ve seen in many a moon....!
BFBC2 on Steam, i know Bit-tech-ers have contributed at least 9 copies.
The answer your looking for is the unwashed masses who don't read reviews and probably didn't know it had an always on DRM scheme (I'd be amazed if half of them even knew what DRM is to be honest)
They will know once the game conks out on them mid way through a mission and they lose all the progress that was made.
Like many others i'm shocked at how well cnc4 is doing, still i'm pleased to see mw2 is not on the non-steam chart.
I'm also annoyed to see settlers 7 doing well with its always on drm - that makes 2 of the top 10 in the main chart having always on crappy drm, which is a very bad trend to have.
It's Dragon Age: Origins Awakening
Not Awakenings or Dragon Origins. FFS proofread.
