Default Overlord (PC): no cd key?

Hi,

Bought Overlord today, opened package, saw no serial in it, so already start question why, cause Overlord has multiplayer ....

So started installation and no serial was asked, so no serial needed?

How got this game protection, cause u can install on any machine u want without serial???

thx

Well, if:

1) The game has MP
2) It requires no CD key to play MP
3) Then this game will be popular among the 's lol

Why not? If I'm a game developer why spend money on something that in the end really doesn't mean sh*t? Any human-created protection is going to be cracked at some point, it is inevitable. Spend more money on solid game design & development, ignore all the BS that your game doesn't need and release something that is easy to play and fun.

It wouldn't have surprised me if the game had come with no protection at all, I'm already falling in love with my little minions.

FOR DA MASTA!!

I'm really thinking of picking this up.

Does it have star force or anything like that?

No sign of Starforce (Securom most likely), and this game rocks, truely hilarious and performs really nice here.

Wow, nice to see Codemasters abandon Starforce like every other major publisher.

Gamestop (ugh) has this for $39.99 on PC.

EDIT: So does GoGamer.com, the better choice.

I wonder if they have really left Starforce, Dirt uses this protection
