A bit of balance into this forum?
I posted here a few days ago, asking for positive opinions, didn't get much but I did get pointed towards a demo, which I tried... and when I saw that the game was 75% off in the flash sale (10 hours left as of this message) I jumped at it.

People keep complaining that this game has DRM, my response to that is "So what?", you have to be connected to the internet to play this game... I'm always connected anyway so why should I whine about it? I get that this isn't always the case, but I'm fairly certain most of the people complaining are always connected too.

Now, onto the game itself.

This game (at least for me) is a challenging, which is awesome! I love that I get myself killed so much when I'm not being careful.

The game is very pretty in my opinion, love the effects and the bases and the ships I've had to fight so far.

I have not really been paying much attention to the story so far, which is fine, if I wanted a story I could play pretty much any game out there, not saying the story for this game is bad, just that I can't comment on it.

The controls seem simple enough, never played a game like this before, but it hasn't taken me long to become comfortable with it.


Seriously, I love what I've seen of this game so far and I really think that people shouldn't be put off by all this negativity and just give it a try, especially at it's currently discounted price!

There are plenty or genuine realistic answers to this question out there already. The main one is that this is not just 'a drm', it is unecessary and it's making potential customers into enemies which has been also sparked by a devs glib and insulting reply in one of these threads. Which says more than anything else about what people are paying into and who they are supporting. As one would expect, these issues are taken seriously by many. I'm glad you asked.

I'm not justifying that this game should have DRM, I'm saying that it's totally not a dealbreaker for this game, which looking at the other posts, it seems to be for a lot of people, which in my opinion is silly... I don't not buy my bread from the store because the store and the bread have alarms on them. (poor example probably but I can't think of another way)

Using your analogy one might say that you wouldn't purchase bread from that store if it meant when your store closed your bread was still alarmed.

Anyway that's enough from me in this thread as I really didn't mean to take away your threads intentions. ATB.

Thank you, don't mean to be rude, but there appears to be many threads to discuss the DRM "issue" in, I want to get people to at least try the demo and see what they think of the game itself rather than leaving just because you have to stay online.

If people want to be drama queens over this, let them. If it isn't this it would be something else. It's what they do.

I know, but I just want people to see that there IS some positive things about this game, you wouldn't think it looking at the forum in it's current state.

This forum has been taken over by the DMR complaints.
But if you dig between the DRM complaints, you'll also find many posts of people that actually played the game and liked it.

I guess the "likers" are spending their time playing and enjoying the game,
as opposed to the "haters" that spend their time here complaining about a game that most of them haven't even played.

I think that about sums it up, thank you, sir

I think people are just jumping on the "I hate DRM" bandwagon. The reason i hated Ubisoft's DRM is because it was included in games that had absolutely no multiplayer, I'm always connected to the internet, and this game has multiplayer. Would it be nice if they trusted people enough to not have to have it? Yes. and i'd suggest it to more people. I've been following this game for a long time and have to say i'm very impressed with the product so far. THOUGH I was expecting a Freelancer-esque experience for the Multiplayer which i was a bit disappointed not to find. The map editor is incredible and worth the 6 dollars the game is right now.

Many of them haven't played the game because they CAN'T because of the DRM. I have a 1500 dollar gaming rig, but I literally cannot play this game because of an overly aggressive college firewall. Please explain to me how this is right. Obviously it's my college's fault, but you have to realize if they picked literally any other kind of DRM, I would have absolutely no issue.

Came here to see if I should get the game for like 5 bucks. Saw that is has drm, instant no purchase. Isn't this an indie game? It's not like this is from ubi or ea or something, I'm surprised.

It's the best kind of DRM ever. The DRM that everyone pretends doesn't exist. :)

@Axe - Could you point me to the thread where the devs posted an insulting reply?

I am one of the devs, and insulting our customers or potential customers is not what we do (at least not intentionally)

Well, it's just another amateurish indie project with a DRM (rofl).

And they are even selling "cheat codes" which is probably the lowest of lows.

Yet somehow they wonder, where is all that hate coming from.

Really ?

Of course, this thread would get stickied.
