BioShock, SecuROM and You

Postby Deelenzero » Wed Aug 29, 2007 12:04 pm

My Pirate Ship is sunk, due to BioShock Demo and SecuROM (sense its now on both of my computers)... if anyone finds out how to get rid of this fucking Malware Virus, for the love of god tell me!

That should do it.

There has been quite some ruckus about the secuROM in Bioshock, which I can't really understand since there's been numerous games as of late that had it.

I love you too D00d.

What is this Pirate Ship of your, though? Does the DRM hinder you from downloading illegal content?

Well, as far as I know, it is meant to hinder you from uploading the content of the dvd, not hinder or detect you downloading it (since you wouldn't be downloading the game if you had secuROM and Bioshock installed to begin with), but yeah, I can understand you.

Remember, they're always watching your back... Use proxies!

Huh? That sounds almost like the situation I'm in.

I bought Bioshock, but found out my DVD drive is busted, so I have to download it XD

Haha, what a coincidence. And to think, months back I was complaining about why you had to install with 4 or 5 cds when DVDs were so much more convenient.

And I spent my last money buying the damn game.

Hmmm, you were kinda of lucky. One guy downloaded Bioshock Demo, and well, you know the rest of the story (IT BURNED!!!). Anyways, I don´t recommend Bioshock Demo for PC, it´s screwing a lot of things.
