So apparently Epic Games put a built in DRM kill switch in the PC version of Gears Of War. The only way to fix it is to set your PC's clock back before Jan 28th.
Even funnier: People with the pirated version can still play XD

It's a good thing I didnt buy this when it came out. And that doesn't mean I pirated it. :P



If anything cool is ever going on Skype me up under the name "blarghle"

When are they going to get the point and just stop with the DRM bullshit?
They lose customers and get sued and they just keep going at it...



None.

DRM is the single biggest boost to pirating since the floppy disk.
