Croteam VS. Pirates… And giant Scorpions…News
Digital Rights Management (or DRM for short) is, and have always been, a thorn in the sides of gamers. Having to verify your email, name, age, a DNA-scan and your blood type to play online, is not exactly something gamers enjoy… Yet to prevent pirates from pirating games, it’s the developers’ job to do so, and they know that people don’t like it. So what are they to do?
Croteam has the answer: PUT PIRATES UP AGAINST A GIANT INVINSIBLE RED SCORPION-MUTANT!
Just the thought of the people having pirated Serious Sam 3 BFE, suddenly meeting this thing in-game, is just too funny. The way it works is that if the game finds out you haven’t bought the game legitimately, it will spawn this fella and it will fight you through the rest of the game. You can’t kill it. You can’t run from it. You can’t survive. This is truly the best way to fight piracy I have ever seen.
Thought I must say it’s kinda silly. Why? Well a game I wasn’t really interested in, have now become appealing, BUT ONLY THE PIRATED VERSION!
