I will mention though that he has a pair of interesting articles posted about his take on Video Game Piracy and Digital Rights Management that may be of interest. He even takes a shot at Penny Arcade’s new game,
On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness.
I don’t run into the problem of re-registering my games that much. The computer I have at home is fairly old and most of the games I play came out when DRM hadn’t been created as a anti-piracy program. I think the newest game I play is Morrowind and that came out in 2002. (I do have Oblivion but I know my system can’t handle the graphics. Maybe in a few years.) I’m still going through the old Dungeon and Dragon’s Gold Box games from way back when and those sit on my flash drive. I have to type in a CD key when I install something but I don’t mind doing that.
One comment that bothers me is how some folks who have purchased the game have to obtain a crack just to get around the security program. I had that issue way back when when CD games first came out. (Trying to remember what game it was. Maybe Pizza Tycoon?) I had a CD burner in that computer at the time and the game saw it and refused to play.
edit: Oh, forgot to mention that Mr. Young also did a Lord of the Rings Photoshop’ed webcomic called DM of the Rings. It’s finished now but it’s a good read. I wonder if he’ll start a new one of the Hobbit.
