well, thankfully they confirmed are and are working on a fix. Theres no reason for this game to be always online.

Now, please bring me that Grey Fox skin on PS3. I missed out on it when the game launched.

Yesss, Grey Fox! I would buy the hell out of that. Still have yet to play Rising. Need to do so sometime soon, as I heard it was quite fun.

I did not no it was a stupid preorder dlc, I have been using it on PC every level so far it looks awesome

I concur it was a very stupid DLC the only reason I gave in to it was because of the preorder artbook (Yoji Shinkawa is GOD) and soundtrack.

Though ironically enough when I bought the game I had to remind the gamestop employee about the preorder bonus cause he thought, "That is for the limited edition only."

no offense, but how can something like this be a bug?

AS said by a dude on NeoGaf
"This is definitely a function of the way MGR uses the Steam API. Using a modified steam_api.dll allows it to work in Steam Offline mode. I can't say whether it's a bug or deliberate implementation, but it's not any other sort of DRM, all Steam."
I belief he is referring to how steam file can be modified to open games without STeam.The DRM would have to be their own because all Steam DRM does is pretty much add the game to your account and they can be launched offline. With that they can play the game offline without any kind of crack because there is no other drm

I don't care what anyone says. I love Konami, but I refuse to believe this was a bug. A bug doesn't cause a game to require online. It's obvious that this was just a test to see if people would be okay with it.

Since when have people been "ok" with always-online DRM for a single player game?
LAWSON72  +   471d ago
Sim City
Diablo 3

If the game works with a modified steam file that allows it to be ran on STeam Offline mode it is a bug nothing more. Also according to many sites the game has been fixed

The bug was fixed in 24 hrs so all you whiners and conspirators can go away. It was sayed to be fixed at 3 AM

Has anyone had any trouble free slicing in this game? Every time I try it, it locks up for no reason (PC Version).

That bug is a little too convenient
