Crysis Warhead had a similar DRM feature where your guns wouldn't shoot bullets. They shot chickens.
Probably The Best DRM Ever
Arkham Asylum had a similar strategy - The cape's float mechanics were slightly altered so that pirates could not get past a certain point because they would fall before reaching their final destination.
So far, this is probably the only DRM that's effective against pirates and doesn't harm the consumer's experience.
Haha, that's pretty cool, could use more absurd though, its tame relative to 90% of what's in Serious Sam games.
Well, if it was a huge bad-ass son of a bitch that only pirates got to see, then legit customers may be bummed that they didn't get to see it :P
I want to see a speedrun where someone completes the game with that thing chasing them the entire time.....but still this is not effective pirates will find away to remove the scorpion with little trouble.
I imagine there are more of those in the game, and I imagine that they'd be the same. At some point, you'd have to play frame by frame.
