When I initially heard that Tages was back I just slapped my head, they might as well have had online auth with tages and then dumped in Starforce on top of things. Atari later commenting that if you have a valid reason for more than 3 installs other than the fact that you own it that they'll consider an exemption.

What's wrong with Atari? Seriously, their logic has failed.

The current futile attempt of Atari or current logic failure of Atari does not necessarily mean the perpetual failure for the company, of course, eternal failure of Atari will only come when they do not produce new logics anymore for their company. This suggestion does serve as a symptomatic of perseverance for every game company or developer or publisher in the realm of uncertainty or in an indecent economic time.

Surely attempting to prevent piracy is not worth destroying the experience for the end user? I appreciate that companies like Atari don't want their goods digitally spread across the net for free, but I'd like to think that if a company policy is pissing off the consumer base to that extent then perhaps the policy requires a rethink.

Jesus christ. This is why I don't like to game on PC anymore. Too much BS to trudge through.

Don't blame you, man. It's a hard slog.
Things are looking to improve, though, for sure. Between Goo, Byteshield, the FTC stepping in, and EA being forced to change..I think this year we'll start to see a reasonable situation for PC gamers. Atari, I feel, is just one of the companies left still too stupid to consider change. They will eventually, because everyone else will have.

The worst thing about DRM is that it still hasn't prevented games from being cracked. It's ridiculous to think that after owning your game for a few years you might have to crack it to play because you've upgraded your computer since then. DRM is giving cracking a legitimate reason for being there.

Yes, it's a wasted effort, and a shame publishers compromise the performance and operability of great games with DRM, and put money into it they could put into patches and such instead.
