Great article.

Wow, just wow. You know what they should do? Make it so it checks what mouse you use. I mean, who switches over 3 mice in the time this game is still popular!?

This has put me off big time, i was going to buy this game. But if this is the case they can get stuffed.

EA are a shocking company, do they insist on pissing people off? C&C3 KW is a prime example, they made the game and now have just forgotten it.

Great article but a couple of corrections would make it better yet.

Firstly, where did you get the 130 pages number from? We overshot that long ago. One thread alone has over 123 pages on the topic.
http://masseffect.bioware.com/forums/viewtopic.html?topic=628724&forum=125
The next thread had over 65 pages before it was locked. There are well over 130 pages int the offtopic forum pages also. Plus many other threads. I'd guess the true number is closer to 400 pages of debate/protest and outrage on their forums (not counting deleted posts on other threads).

There are at least 24 separate threads on the topic, all but one locked.

The current thread can be found http://forums.bioware.com/forums/viewtopic.html?topic=636639&forum=22&sp=0 and the first post contains links to all the other threads.


Secondly, Bioware did announce on the forums a couple days ago that the 'buy another copy' message was a 'mistake' and will be changed.

Some of us think they're just allowing the concept of activations to become accepted by customers before they DO start charging for activations. I'll let the reader make that judgement for themselves.

Omg! Well, EA, you continue to show you your bloody acne-filled face, oozing a putrid liquid that not even a trillion dollars worth of surgery can treat ... I hope you blow up. Very soon. Go bankrupt dammit >.<

And why, Bioware, did you give up so willingly to the evil EA? I had so much respect for you... You're lucky you still make good games >.> But your pc games... are corrupted. I hope you learned your lesson, Bioware.

In your minds, cross out the 'you' after 'show.' Thanks in advance. I make mistakes. So do you =D We're even, right?

The picture of Saren doesn't make much sense; it should be- DIE CUSTOMERS! The DRM makes it better to get the pirated version than the real version because the pirated one doesn't have the stupid not being able to install the game a 4th time thing. It's like saying "We don't want your money. Just go to the Pirates; they'll treat you better."
