SecuROM just cost Cyanide/Focus a sale
Fortunately there are plenty of other games out there without unnecessary DRM layers so I'll spend my Blood Bowl money there. It's a shame; the game looks like fun.

Yes there is some stupid DRM stuff in there, but this game is awesome if you're a fan of the GW BloodBowl game. And even if you don't know about the GW game, it's still very fun to play.

You realise Steam itself is DRM for every game you buy right?

Also keep an eye on Chaos Edition. They've been saying that it requires Steam unlike the last 2 (Which could be bought on other sites), which is a good sign of them just using Steam as the DRM instead of SecuROM.

Stop whining about SecuROM; aside from the version thrown haphazardly into Bioshock 1, it really isn't that big of a problem. Tons of games use SecuROM now, and really, it's nowhere near as bad as, oh, let's say, Origin, or uPlay, or Battle.Net 2.0. At least it does work offline, and isn't really all that intrusive, besides the aformentioned Bioshock 1 SecuROM.

The install limit on some titles does suck, but eh, I can get around it.

Whiny whiny whiny, that's cool, miss out on a great game. Your loss, nobody else's.

Chaos Edition will only have the "standard" steam DRM and no activation limit as far as i know
Thanks King Tai & Minuteman; great news about the Chaos Edition!

To Star-X & Pand3mon1c: the point of voicing the loss of a sale is so that publishers receive feedback. If a publisher's marketing team is smart they will not view feedback as "whining" but rather an opportunity to regain a lost sale. Apparently they _have_ listened to others like myself who do not want the hassle or restrictions imposed by superfluous DRM (work-arounds notwithstanding) & have renounced SecuROM.

I'm happy with SteamWorks' subscription-based DRM, so at this news I'm smiling :)
The game is garbage anyway; you didn't miss out on much. Waste of 5$.

Activation limit is one of the worst DMR.
Imagine if ALL games had that protection, you would end up with a lots of unplayable games over time.

as long as your game is on steam, you will be able to install and uninstall it at will...what is the issue here ?

and i suppose this game is garbage if you don't take the time to figure out the actual rules, at which point it becomes a blast of a strategy/fantasy/sports game.

but i do suppose that actually thinking about a game is hard for some folks...pew pew is the way to go for them, no thought involved.

If he isn't mentally able to deal with a DRM do you think he will have what it takes to learn and play Blood Bowl? He's better off buying some CoD and saving us another "I want a refund, this is the worst Medieval Madden ever" thread.

SecuROM is a form of malware--I would not advise it ever be installed on a system as it allows access above and beyond what a program should be allowed access to. Cyanide has a history of supporting idiotic forms of game distribution and it's a shame. They sort of finally got beyond releasing alpha/beta games but still release games with DRM issues.

No it isnt.

I can run a lot of games fine without Steam. Especially most Paradox Interactive games.

SecuROM has been removed in Blood Bowl Legendary Edition since a long time now.

The debate is now closed.
