    They should make this a feature in the legal version as well. Achievement [EPIC INSANITY SPEEDRUN]: finish the game with this guy on your ass.

    Awesome, although I think I prefer the Michael Jackson DS game's anti-piracy of playing vuvuzela's over the music.

    Epic DRM, sadly I never had a chance to test out the Michael Jackson vuvuzela, might have to go back some time and grab it.

    Just like Batman Arkham Asylum where they made the Batcape useless beyond all hell.

    If companies used DRM like this more often I'd buy the game and pirate it so I could play with the funny DRM. In fact, I bought Serious Sam yesterday and am also pirating it right now. Hehe, can't wait.

    i think the best is definitely michael jackson's vuvuzela drm. some other apps have a sort of drm whereby ur app would crash after a few runs like rosetta stone. i havent seen any drm in ACR (although ubi was first known for its powerful online DRM system which got hacked after more than 2 weeks or was it one month) so i am thinking it may be just before defeating the last guy whoever it may be

    I like the DRM in Earthbound. Enemies are ridiculously strong from the start of the game, There are a lot more enemies roaming around, the game will randomly crash on you sometimes, but should you actually make it to the end of the game it freezes during the last boss fight and erases all your saves

    How do you get DRM for Earthbound? I have never experienced that whenever I play the game on emulators.

    What, 15 year old DRM and you don't think they've cracked it yet? You need to use a really old emulator, a genuine SNES game copier, or there might be some settings you can put on a modern emu to trip the DRM.

    Truly epic. Every DRM should be like this.

    The best DRM is that final fantasy game that says "Thanks for playing!" after 20 minutes, as if you were playing a demo.

    DRM would be more successful if it let you start up the game, but screwed it up for you in some way, like this. People get a shot at the game, realize they like it, but won't be able to complete the pirated version, so they go buy the real one. Profit.

    Except it just doesn't work that way. Take the Serious Sam DRM, already been removed. What's stopping any other game from the same thing happening? As good of an idea you have it just wouldn't change much.

    No, it doesn't work that way in general. However, if someone tries out a game on broken DRM mode, and likes it, they may choose to hang the wait for the DRM crack and just go buy it on Steam.

    Someone greeted by a black screen crash is more likely to just wait for a pirate fix.
