I'm afraid to hope. Many other excellent games have been rated for months but are still not available.

I'm sure a game so heavily featured in SSBB will show up on Virtual Console sooner than later.

FUCK YES GYROMITE  :8D:

Are you fucking serious. SecuROM? God fucking damn it, I wanted to play that game. Not any more, though. Not if I have to put SecuROM on my computer.

I don't have a problem with the idea of copy protection. As long as they only "protect" the program they come with, that's fine - a bit insulting, perhaps, but it doesn't make it more difficult for me to play the game. SecuROM is not that well-implemented. It interferes drastically with the normal use of my computer (for example, I happen to like Process Explorer, and also it allegedly doesn't play nicely with the debugger in Visual Studio).

My information in that regard is old and unauthoritative; I'm looking for a more valid source. Wikipedia says, though, that SecuROM installs a shell extension that prevents you from deleting 16-bit executables. That alone is enough to skip it on principle, I think.

Yeah, so, apparently WFE requires you sign in every 6 hours or you're banned now.  Nobody told me this.

(Also the PC version of Mass Effect, but eh)

Wait, they're porting Spore to consoles, right? Maybe there's hope.

Second.  I was planning on purchasing Mass Effect, but I will not buy anything that comes with invasive copy-protection.  Fortunately, since copy-protection doesn't work, I'm sure I can get my hands on a functioning version anyway.

...You know, I was planning on sending a job app to Bioware tomorrow.  Maybe I should hold off.

I don't have a problem with the idea of copy protection.

And I don't have a problem with the idea of unicorns, but I'm not going to bend over and let EA have its way with me every 10 days just because it swears to me that it is helping the unicorn population.

...I was going to apply to EA, too.  Dammit.

They're both being published by EA, so they didn't exactly reach this decision independently.

But, look. Surely there's a way that I can play a game I paid for without having to install a malicious rootkit on my computer. I draw the line at anything that affects the normal functioning of my machine.

Okay, so.  While you guys do that, uh.  I'll be over here.  Playing Spore.

Because I'm not a little bitch.
