    Wink It's things like this that make me glad I do my gaming on Linux

    After reading How publishers punish us for buying new games and DRM run amok: how Bioware and EA are screwing users right now I don't regret doing my gaming on my Linux box or my Wii console.
    Sure, I miss out on the AAA titles, but if the poor folk's experiences in those articles is what I can look forward to, count me out.

    Besides, I have more games stockpiled up than I have time to play anyways.

    fortunately i've got tons of movies to watch on my PC (couldn't afford TV) linux saves my day every single day, few native good games, cross-over to expend the fun (games of course)! the only console i ever had was a gameboy 1st gen. first biggest deception was getting starcraft 2 normal edition with limited online time 6 miserable months (played twice online) then BF:BC2 unfinished game with no more updates... EA made clear that players and dumper than flies!!!

    Anyway thankfully we have the Humble Bundle to save the day and few emulators to play those old games that until now can be played! I wish Unigine would drop DRM but they need it for now otherwise they won't get paid for making games for us....

    no kidding at all you buy the normal edition game and you get 6 month online! oh the worst thing is it doesn't show on the dvd box cover!!! now try to feel the rage that i got when i read that will installing the game... Oh another thing, you buy the game and you also discover that you have only the terran main campaign and get a Protoss mini campaign... so you pay USD 60 to buy 1/3 of the game and you have to wait until the "ADD-ONs" are made available (add-on my arse honestly!)

    what a rubbish game honestly stick the the first one which is much better and doesn't eat your HDD just to play 1/4 of the time spend playing the original StarCraft.

    another example of non-linux gaming:

    http://www.handelsblatt.com/technolo...r/4040688.htmlhttp://www.handelsblatt.com/technolo...r/4040688.html

    Apple ruin a Familie with an child-game on the ipad the kids play the game only 1 half day and it costs the family 5500/7700$ !!!

    and no chance to get the money back.

    in words five thousand five hundred euro

    thats 7700 $!!! Seven thousand Seven hundred Dollar!

    for an child play game for only 6 h!

    if you and your family do not play on Linux your ruin your live!

    The normal edition of StarCraft II has no time limitation. (Except Bnet service will be shut down in 10 years or so)

    Hmm, after some googling I've found that in Latin America there is indeed a 6 month limited version of the starcraft 2 game going for half the price ($30 US) of the full game. Interesting.
