So how did they screw over legit customers this time? they didn't add new serial keys to their database, even though they sold them. How nice of them. Now all of us people who LEGITIMATELY purchased the game are locked out of it, while all those pirates get to enjoy the game with no hassle.


How anyone can be in favor of DRM boggles the mind.

Thanks to Microsofts stupid security features, i either have to wait a month for my old, trusted computer to be taken off my account so that i can buy the Bioshock 2 DLC, or i have to get into my crowded wardrobe to find my old laptop, wait a year for it to turn on and then activate this computer as trusted.

It's just an annoying hassle.

Lol, that's why I hate these companies.
If a game has awful draconian DRM, I pirate it.
And I honestly don't feel bad about that.

SecuROM stopped me playing Dungeon Siege on Vista, since a SP update broke the CD-key authentification.

i've heard that running it on Windows 7 gets rid of the issue, but its still a ****y deal to not be able to play on my Vista PC _
