Online DRM

#1Jon_GodPosted 10/3/2013 3:34:00 PM
Here is a company that made a sequel one of their flagship series from the 90s, a single player game, and added online DRM.

Not only this, but they developed their own digital store trying get people to buy digitally, and no matter what, have to play their own games through their store and network, which no one wanted.

They also have slowly moved their focus from single player games which made them famous in the first place, to freemium games, and multiplayer focused games.

As a company the've continually to not respond to fan requests to bring back their old series.


Ladies and gentlemen, I bring you Valve.

TC hit the nail in the head. Steam fanboys love to b**** about how evil DRM is yet try to shove Steamworks down everyone else's throats.
