by Erik "NekoIncardine" Ottosen on Oct. 10, 2009 @ 7:06 a.m. PDT | Filed under Editorials

By saying on a video game site that Digital Rights Management (DRM) sucks, I'm preaching to the choir. We've all heard the stories about and, in some cases, experienced StarForce, SecuROM and other schemes of various effectiveness to prevent the piracy of video games.

I'm Going To Count To Three. There Will Not Be A Four. Give Me The Code.

Ahh weekend, my favorite time of the week. Time to actually sleep and watch even more TV. We'll probably check out Bruce Willis' "Surrogates," which looks interesting.

This week and next week, quite a few big titles are shipping, and judging from all the press events marked on my calendar it's safe to say that the ramp-up to the holidays has begun, and plenty of titles are coming. Another 4 events this week. Luckily all of them are local, and no, we're not flying out to Italy to check out Assassin's Creed II.

And now for the shameless plug. It was good to hear that Vogster is taking care of business and going to release a limited free-to-play version of CrimeCraft. Love playing the game, but it sure could use some more people in it. While you can trigger PvE instances, the PvP is a big part of the game so new recruits are more than welcome. Hopefully, this will also bring down the prices in the auction house (rare items are being sold for outrageous amounts of money). You all better check it out later this month. You have no excuse not to. :)
