Sad i had high hopes for both of these especially spore since we already have ME on the 360 (tho it would b a hell of a lot better on a pc)
No way am i supporting this kind of drm crap.
Better off waiting for the crack since it will be hassle free.

And yet they wonder why piracy's such a big hitter, online periodic validation my ass.

This sucks for people like my friend who doesn't have the internet, unless he drags it to his dad's office and plugs it in there. Really sad :<

I'd just love to see somebody sell me a chair that I could only sit in for a few years, until the seller got tired of weekly double-checking in my bedroom to make sure that I wasn't pirating it by letting someone else sit in the chair with me.

Running those servers to re-authenticate millions of copies every 10 days isn't free. As somebody who is still playing their copy of classics like Myth and Fallout over ten years after their release, this policy sounds like my legal copies will be completely nonfunctional once Bioware stops pumping money into keeping those servers alive for a game that stopped making them new sales years ago....
