Spore DRM Question

#1 Posted by Atlantus_Air (187 posts) -

My friend has Spore, but his computer isn't able to run it. He has installed and uninstalled it 4 times already. If I borrow it from him and install it, will he be out of installs?

Yes.  You'll have to call them up & pay the $18 fee or whatever it is
in order to play the game.  Man they really put planned obscelence
in this game by not being able to drop the price.  You can get the
boxed game for pretty cheap these days.  Just make sure you
put it on a box that you don't plan on reformatting for quite a few
years.

@Lind_L_Taylor: Few months late, but thanks anyway. I've already purchased Spore and it's really boring.

You can make something have 3 eyes. THREE. How is that boring? You're so jaded.

It's too bad the game wasn't as fun as the novel idea behind this kind of game.

I feel like you're not listening. Most things have two eyes, but in Spore you can make something have three eyes. That's one more eye than one commonly sees. It's fucking ridiculous. I'll take that kind of user customization and in depth character creation over any half assed Bioware RPG or Valve First Person Banger.

Right, ignore the truth when it's too much to handle.

I really hope you're not serious saying that Spore is a better game than an RPG from Bioware or an FPS from Valve.

Hey man, if you can't back up your point like I can mine, then that's fine.

Guys, they are both different genres, no point in arguing. That's like comparing beer to soda.
