Gears of War players suffer at the hands of DRM

A fatal error for Epic means gamers can't play the game they bought without messing around with their system.

I HATE DRM. That's the only reason why I didn't buy GTA4.

ok that was an epic fail (sorry about the joke)

now lets coment ; for a famous studio this small mistake is actually unacceptable, i just wonder if no one revised the scripts when it was on alfa phase, also they could just make a patch that could fix everything.

in the other side of the coin, if gammers can't wait just fix their clock and play, at least isnt one of those big bugs that makes you unnable to play, if it was it would suck really bad

anyways, good luck to epic studio.

Fail < major fail < epic fail < DRM

Really not much more to say.

Thankfully I have it on 360 so I didn't need to get it on PC. That's extremely unfortunate for those who did shell out for it though

Muppets, wasnt that long ago they didnt print the full serial key for some game or other? DRM is a total waste of time and effort, if people want to pirate stuff they will. It like putting a plaster on your arm to fix a cut on your leg, equally dumb.
