Damn you, EA!

Ya know, I’ve been looking forward to Spore for a little while (like since forever!!!). And it’s really disheartening to find out that I won’t be buying it.

It’s not like I don’t want to. It’s just that I don’t feel like wasting that kind of money on something I’ll only get to play a few times before the stupid DRM kicks in and locks me out of my own game.

Mass Effect and Spore to Require Online Authentication Every 10 Days

I just got home from a trip that took me out of gaming range almost that long. So, besides the fact that DRM is b.s., I’ll very likely wind up with a useless piece of plastic in my CD case either after a future trip (you do get up to 3 activiations) or someday when EA is out of business and I want to haul out my then old copy of Spore and play it.

UPDATE: There’s hope yet!

    Be a clever boy. I’m sure however good their DRM is, a hacker out there is better.

    I realize the principal of the thing. I understand and generally abide by that. But it seems like EA is forcing your hand here. It sure seems more than “keeping honest people honest”, especially given the inconvenience.

    In other words, screw ’em! 🙂
