> get attracted by the word free game
> end up paying for their product anyway

you know guys i'm thinking of opening my own restaurant that works the same way. the food i make that is praised for it's quality is marketed as completely free of charge to attract massive amounts of customers from across the country but before i serve it to them i'll mix it with whatever i can scrape off the bottom of my garbage bin so it'l save me money for having it disposed, and if my customers are starting to complain and snarl at me about how i ruined their fine meal i'm handing over the premium customer menu that is crap and poison free in exchange for a small price.

and that is how cheap bastards are tricked. even if half of them decide to flip me the finger and leave i'll still save money on garbage disposal.

I only understood the first 2 lines of the above comment, anyways, I wont mind seeing ads every 20 minutes. I guess everybody wins in this case, we get a free game and eidos gets money through advertisement. If the ads are more than 3 minutes long then thats something to worry about

There's no such thing as 'free lunch' or 'free thing' in capitalism!!! Because it only appears to be free for gamers, in fact, it's not!!!

TANSTAAFL!

I'd like to play the game, but my PC probably can't handle it.

And I'm concerned what other software would have to be installed.

It's free for us so long as you have the patience to watch an ad every 20 minutes, hence the point.
