insanely overcontrolling jerks

Apparently Blizzard is now disabling the games of people found to be cheating... in single-player.


And of course this starts up the insistent yells of "THIS IS WHY I ONLY EVER PIRATE GAMES" which is, well, still crazy - Not every game behaves like this. SUPPORT GAMES THAT DON'T DO EVIL THINGS TO YOU rather than refusing to buy anything ever.

There's a proud commenter there claiming that e only pirates games and if games became unpiratable e'd just stop playing them. Guess what? That threat is REALLY not going to bother a company who's investing time and effort into DRM. They would rather have you not play than pirate. That's kinda the point.

Take time to research games.
Support companies who aren't evil.
Why so difficult?

Sadly, for every gamer who does the research and resists the temptation to buy the new heavily-encumbered game, there's 20-40 who are too uninformed or who just can't resist the temptation.

I don't expect everyone in the world to be perfect, I just hope that if I yell long enough I can keep SOME people on my side ;)
