Damned if you do...

For once I actually went out and bought a new game within a week of it's release date. Turns out I got screwed. Bloody Securom copy protection doesn't play well with my main burning program which is Alcohol 120%. It took me about an hour to find a work around. It bothers me that when I try to be honest and spend hard earned cash on a game, this crap pops up because I burn CDs. Crap like this to me seems to be taking copy protection a step too far. Don't even get me started on Sony's latest attempt on copy protection which is even worse than this securom invasion. If you put a Sony audio CD in your computer now, you are basically installing a rootkit which is a nice and easy unlocked back door for a hacker. Now how nice is that? Long story short, Lucas Arts may have lost a customer and Sony for sure is one client short. Goodbye PS3, hello Xbox 360.
