Hey guys. Online authentication isn't a big deal, remember? Requiring a connection to play a game is the way forward for rights management, console players should get used to it. You have to have a connection to download the game in the first place, so I don't see why it would be a prob- oh, wait, the server is borked? Well damn, who could have foreseen that wrinkle?
You're being an idiot. It's an online-only game. Without the things you're talking about, Hybrid wouldn't exist at all. It's a stupid fucking situation, yes, but not for any of the reasons you're floating here.
I know, but I didn't want to pass on the chance to be a douche.
Hybrid looked neat, too.
