Hilarious and vile, at the same time; those of us who are not too interested in stealing our games are being left out in the cold if we don't want a system full of mandatory malware... This and the endless (and very costly) losing battle against constant upgrades has almost entirely turned me off from PC gaming, at least with regards to commercial releases.

Yeah, I know what you mean. It's hard to keep up with all the upgrades. I just use a laptop as my main computer though... which isn't as upgradeable. And guesst is exactly right about Starforce. The stupid program is actually encouraging the thing it's trying to stop. It's just stupid.  Sad

I think SF is a European company, but thats besides the point...

Personally I dont mind devs trying to protect thier software. But SF takes it too far. Yes, I've had no probs so far, but I'm still suspicious...

Steam, IMO, is much better in that at least it doesnt install drivers on your comp.

Yeah, but the problem with Steam is that EVERY TIME you want to play their game you have to connect to steam and download content. That mean if your internet is down/fussy no project Gordon for you.

I used Steam for about a week before uninstalling it and all related software.

Steam is oh so shitty... I had the exact same problem. Why do the valve folks need to be such control freaks? If I dish out some of my hard-earned cash for the rights to install and play a game, I should be able to use those rights whenever I want.

And what about in the future, when steam is inevitably discontinued or supplanted by a new DRM technology? All of the games that you purchased over steam will be lost to the sands of time, unless you resort to illegal cracking. Shame on valve for putting its customers in such a position.

Is there any reliable news on whether the US version of SR2 has Starforce? If not, someone please post an update once you get the game.

According to one of the moderators on the Cinamaware Marquee (the US publisher) forums, the answer is 'yes and no':

There's already a pretty long thread about this in the Starbase Café.

SR2 was cracked long ago. Just install the crack from GCworld without installing starforce.
All this flapping about and your missing out.

Sadly the RTS stuff I'm seeing in screenshots and the trailers is *really* turning me off to this, which is a shame since the rest looks so interesting.  Has anyone played this and found that the RTS portion of the game can be minimized?

It's completely optional. You don't have to accept those missions if you don't want to.

Best PC game I own. The universe is fully dynamic and changes with or without player interactions. It's this that makes SR2 so enjoyable. You see so much everytime you play. So many little touches that you could never get bored. I used to say if I could  only have 1 game it would be Civ2 but I would now choose Sr2 over that game now.

On the brightside, the D2D version of SR2 is void of Starforce.
