Yeah, I've given proof of purchase information for every game on there except for the Half-Life Platinum Pack (the CD-Key of which might not even be in this country anymore). Until I magically provide that key, everything I've purchased on Steam now belongs to That Guy.

Meanwhile he hasn't had to give proof of anything. It's aggravating to say the least.

I figure it expired and he re-registered it. I haven't used it in about five years.

Everyone I know who "just learned about how to use torrent recently" have loaded their computer up with viruses and malware... Piracy is easy, yet people are so good and f*cking things up

So tell me tu!, what client are you using?

Haha, it's so true. I've got a friend who, a few months ago, was shown the ways of the torrent. His computer was such a shit storm it was like walking into a shit shower.

I bet that it'll probably be removed after a few weeks/months (like the previously mentioned bioshock one). I guess if you put in as many measures as possible to try to slow down the appearance of the first completely working cracked copies then you may be able to catch more sales. Even if it does inconvenience your paying customers.

No wonder console development is so much more attractive!

Even if it takes them an extra day to crack, it will still be out there very quickly. Worse case, they release the game with a NASTY way of getting around it and then releasing a more "clean" patch/hack later.

The main thing I hate is that they limit my installs. That makes the game a blank CD after 3 uses. I refuse to pay for something that crippled. Plus, in a few years when the game is old (or Spore 2 comes out) they will shut down the server making it impossible to install the game anymore.

It's bullshit. And I'm not going to buy it under the pretext that EA might wake up some day and smell and bullshit and fix it. Because they won't.

And EAs popularity plummets further. Didn't think that was actually possible, but, well... wow.

Sounds complete bullshit to me, I will - not - purchase if it comes with this DRM shit.

I'll buy it but do what I do with every other game I own:

download an (illegal) crack. solves that annoying DRM issues (mass effect, bioshock would never 'validate' for me) and frees me from having the dvd in the drive, which is annoying. The only negative part is waiting for the crack, as sometimes it's not always available on release date especially for new DRM schemes.

Some people say crack's are buggy and could ruin the game and of the 2 years I've used cracks, with legit copies, only one crack broke my game. The first available crack for Mass Effect wouldn't let me use the galaxy map and it would crash. But once a newer crack came out it fixed that issue and let me even play from my old save games. So in the end, only bad things about cracks: can't play online.

What? No they don't. Keep your old .exe around, replace the crack, update, download the new crack. I do it with every one of my games that requires a disk to play. Works just fine,
