What is bethesta thinking? I know they will still make good money on the game, but this game has absolutely ZERO copy protection(that i can tell anyway).

Sounds about like how it should be.

You know the game is going to sell like crazy... I bet it will sell better than Morrowind, and that game was a massive hit.

They arent going to punish people for buying the game like most developers do. Piracy is going to happen, why give everyone a reason to dislike your company?

No doubt starforce would have made it a pain in the ass to pirate this game, but IMO Bethesda has too good of a reputation to screw the game up with that.

isnt it funny that peice of crap games like Rainbow Six: Lockout use all the copy protection in the world, while this game is actually good and doesnt use any.

Its probably because they know that a good game will sell well without rediculous copy protection, and a crappy game will be pirated so people can try it for 5 minutes and then delete it. The more they can do to stop that, the more they make. Hooray for the money hungry ;)

Morrowind was protected the same minimal way.

I wouldn't call SecuROM "minimal" protection as it is pretty tough. What I would call it is unintrusive, exactly how it should be.

You know, as painful as it is waiting so long for this game, Im still glad I ordered from the publisher. I want the full value of the game to go to them (and the developer) for making a good game and not ruining it with stupid protection methods.

Well on *certain sites* people have just backed this up with Nero and it plays fine with a nero image. Nero isn't good for copy protection either. Oblivion doesn't seem to have anything.

StarNasty, on the other hand...

Can you start the game without an image/disc in drive? If you canīt, it has to have some kind of copy protection. "Aray Scanner" is a good tool to figure out which copy protection is an .exe file or game disc. I might have been wrong with the Securom7 claim, since I donīt have the game and have not scanned the disc myself and only report 2nd hand stories. My bad.

Well that but Securom 7 or any protection really shouldn't be able to copied by using Nero. It has never happened. I think it just checks to make sure there are specific files on the disk or maybe an MD5 sum of something on the disc I don't know. Thing is it appears to be a game that you can finally make a good backup of without worrying about the specifc app, burner or etc.

I'll only pay $2 max at Denny's for a triple stack, not freaking $59.99

So...is StarForce going to link to torrents of this game as well?

If this thing is gold it's getting melted down immediately, or perhaps I'll wear it around my neck for some bling.

Yeah, TES Bling is the best kind... I still wear my pewter ordinator on a silver chain around my neck.

Im the kewlest d00d at all of the star trek conventions when I have that bling on.

I'll see your Indoril and Ebony with my Daedric. I can't move though as it weighs 5,000 pounds and I'm out of strength spells. Ah. MW memories.

No worries, I'll lend you a scroll of Icarian Flight. That should help you get wherever you need to go.

Now excuse me while I run aimlessly at 75Mph through a lava field wearing my boots of blinding speed...
