SteamWorks is an awesome DRM. It's the only DRM that adds features to the game. For example, you can get Steam achievements, extremely detailed stats tracking, SteamCloud and all sorts of other great things.

Steam is the best DRM, your right as always. Why the hell do you have 2 bubbles.

I was down to 1 bubble the other day because I made a comment about Gabe Newell that wasn't negative.

I got back up to 2 after I called Microsoft retarded. This website works in mysterious ways.

I agree. Steam has been good to me so far and has actually turned me away from the path of piracy. Not because of the DRM making things impossible for me though. I can still get an illegal copy of whatever I desire if I put my mind to it. No, it's simply because of the convenience, features and great offers that Steam brings. I feel rewarded when I buy something on Steam rather than punished. That's frankly the best way to go about DRM IMHO. It makes me want to come back. Ubisoft needs to learn something there and learn it fast.

(bubble up from me btw)
