I've been out of the loop of mainstream PC games for a while, tending to buy Wii games or DRM-free indie PC games such as Osmos or the Humble Indie Bundle. But every now and then a game pops up on the news that I really really want. Last time this game was Spore, and then I found out about the DRM and I didn't buy it. Now this time it's Starcraft 2.
I remember playing the first Starcraft and loved it. I loved the look of Starcraft 2, but again another big game company fucks up by crippling it with DRM in the fruitless aim to reduce piracy.
Let me spell it out for you: DRM DOES NOTHING TO STOP "PIRACY" AND EVERYTHING TO PISS OFF YOUR CUSTOMERS!
I hear Starcraft 2 has already been cracked, so what was that, 1 day after release? Good going Blizzard, you've pissed off your customers for nothing. So, I will NOT be buying Starcraft 2 and judging from the comments on Amazon, I'm not the only one.
Seriously Blizzard. Get a clue.
