Man, I am loving my internet that keeps dropping connections randomly since I had a power outage recently, it really makes always online DRM really fun.
(I firmly believe always online DRM should have an offline mode or be abolished until you can guarantee that people will have internet 24/7 wherever they may want to play a game, especially one like Simcity...)
I haven't played the older ones in years so I can't remember but this looks amazing I hope I get accepted for the beta, and the DRM is really bugging me I hope they are able to crack the game so legitimate users can play offline or online whenever they like, If I was to make a game I wont put DRM in It (Ambition of being an Indie Dev) DRM nowadays is doing more damage than good, putting off purchasers and allowing pirates to have a better experience.
I purchased Anno 2070 the other day and was unaware of Ubi's extreme DRM, I think It was supposed to get sorted out but then I heard that It was still there, but Ubi's new DRM attempt is not always on and they've done some things to It, this thrilled me. I'm guessing the same will happen to this game as this Is what happened to all If not most of Ubisoft's games with this horrible DRM.
Why could I play AC2 On my PS3 without hassle but If I was to get It on PC I would need to register It?
DRM needs to die out soon or we'll be bound by cyber shackles in no time!
