Default need a hint on Gears of War - PC version

Hi,

I'm considering buying Gears of War for PC, really liked it (at least on youtube videos) but I have read on some forums it's flawed by a Verisign certificate issue that expired on 1/29/2009 so even if you legally own Gears of War and you play with the DVD on the drive (not even considering using No-CD or any other patches) you can't actually play it.

I found that piece of information on Amazon Customer Discussion page for Gears of War.

Can anyone confirm this? Would be nice to buy it but if it's true and I can't play it, then it's no use on buying it, would be a waste of time and money...

Thanks in advance,
Julio

Date trick works but I think they released a patch for it anyway.

What do you mean by Title Update? An official patch or something like that?

Yes, its an official patch - but patches through Games for windows live are called Title Updates. Either way you can get it though GFWL or http://www.fileshack.com/file.x/1150...+of+War+Patch+ or http://www.gameborder.com/game/Gears...20War%20Patch/

Great game, good PC version, not sure why it gets a lot of hate. The date issue was definately fixed.

Probably because the console version received so much hype.

If you remember, Epic was really pissed off about Gears on PC. They added higher resolution textures, extra map packs, another multiplayer gametype, and its reception was very good. A lot of people gave it a lot of ****, but in reality it is a lot better than the 360 version (I have both).

I gets hate from 360ers that pretend to be PCers. They are jealous about the extra levels.

I still play my copy time to time. The SP campaign has a lot of replay value, and even the MP is fun if there's anyone online to enjoy it with. My x2/HD3850 rig handled it great @ 720p, and now with the x3/HD4870 rig it's even nicer, with everything properly maxxed out.
