DRm has never done anything good to PC and PC gamers..

Most likely Denuvo will make developers more lazy coz guess what potential buyers won't be able to check out their game before buying and see whether it's good or not. They will prolly be locking modding and stuff as well to force their ridiculous cut out of the main game content (so called DLC) and worse.

In time this 64bit virtual machine abomination will be totally obliterated and infamous Securom devs will be thrown to jail for crimes against end users. biggrin.gif

Rise of the Tomb Raider sales on PC are pretty good. It's a single player game. I bet those numbers would have been MUCH lower without the use of Denuvo.
I know many people that bought it, but would have downloaded it, if it was not because of DRM.

I doubt it would make dev's more lazy, because if reviews are bad, people won't be buying. I only bought this because of good reviews. RotTR is the best game I've played for a long time, worth every dollar.

Steam is a DRM, Steam is often credited with saving PC gaming. Before Steam, all games were on physical media and cracked in minutes. PC gaming was nearing extinction. You are probably too young to remember/know any of that.

Multiple ways to know every single thing about the game before buying it. Professional text and video reviews, user reviews, youtube videos, twitch streams, or just buying on Steam and if not liking it asking for refund before 2 hours are up.

haven't had a single problem playing any of my many Denuvo games. so far ALL rumors and speculations about Denuvo turned out false or unproven.

Reviews are bad... 3.3/5 !
post #105 of 343
R9 series Dx12 function is jerky and halty. Game engine is 2006 code and NOT multi-thread?. Game runs smoother on R7 270 and 7780 cards than on R9 and 7970 cards. Full R9 1.2 cards are spastic with it.

Basically the game is an abomination of bad Dx porting.

PC gaming was never near extinction. Early mid 00s (before steam became what it is today) were great for it with games taking advantage of hardware advances, MMORPGs coming to prominence etc.

Lies, PC gaming is dead since they started copying those floppies in the '80s. And desktop PCs are dead by the way. I heard it from very reliable journalists who are totally not bribed by people who want you to a buy a new phone every 6 months.

Hahaha

Haha

Ha

That wasn't, isn't and never will be the goal. They want to keep PC gamers at bay, at best.

To remind everybody of their history of promises regarding PC gaming to keep up the hope, read this list of links, which goes all the way from 2013 to 2005.

Then the game does not support 21:9 resolutions and there´s no way to force it by editing the game config files because... it´s protected (not even taking the windowsapps folder ownership allows you to modify it).

The cherry on the top is that it runs borderless, the textures are kind blurry, and there´s no multi-gpu support. 4K runs at 20 FPS with a single 980 TI just for the record.

Windows Store is really, really bad. Way worse than GFWL. No mods, forced languages, no custom configs, no exclusive fullscreen, no uncapped framerate, no multi-gpu. MS really doesn´t have a clue! mad.gif

Regarding the language problem, I've always found it strange how tech companies of all should know that in a globalised world there are people working and living abroad who want / need to read in their language or who simply prefer to read in the native language of the program, which is often English. Not giving people this option is like having a software company beam you programs from the 18th century. It's even more pathetic in this case considering that Microsoft has provided language packs for Windows 7 Ultimate since 2009.

Just to be accurate, Steam is not DRM. Developers have the option to use the Steamworks CEG ("Custom Executable Generation"), which is a separate thing.

FYI, there is a bunch of games on Steam that don't have any DRM, including Half-Life 2 and the Episodes (they once had, of course). Here is the list.

To be even more accurate, Steam is 100% DRM. Any digital content that requires login and passwrod to online servers is instantly DRM. Just because a handful of games can be moved out of Steam client and launched without it running doesn't mean much. You still need Steam to update game, you still need Steam to have access to your game license etc. and you are at Steam mercy to not declare bankruptcy rendering your 100s or 1000s of game licenses obsolete.

No DRM is when you buy a game disc, install and can download (or not, completely optional) game updates from multiple independent gaming websites. After bored with the game you can then sell that game disc to another person and get some money back on your initial investment. Yeah it feels like talking about cassette tapes at this point, but that's what no DRM is (was).
