Let's make one thing clear: I wouldn't play Command and Conquer 4 if it was the game on Earth. It's just not "me." So pardon my blase attitude while I drop this bombshell: the game uses the same stupid DRM that Ubisoft now uses, which I complained about on CNN. Add this to your list of games not to buy, then.

Yeah, so the game, which came out two days ago, requiresa constant Internet connection in order to be played. EA claims this isn't DRM, but if that's the case I'd like to know what they call it. A rose by another name and such.

Says EA:

First thing to be clear about, Command & Conquer 4 has NO DRM. Zip, zero, zilch, none. We already made this clear.

***

To play Command & Conquer 4, the computer needs to be connected to the internet. We've always made that clear as well.

EA does try to get on your good side by saying you don't need to have the disc in the drive at all times in order to play, you can install and re-install the game as many times as you like, etc. So there is progress being made in The War on DRM.

So, we've just taken Toulon—let's hope it doesn't end at Waterloo.

Yes, I'm still on a Napoleon kick.

I don't know, I'm pretty much a beaten man vis-à-vis fighting DRM. At this point I'm fully prepared to let the likes of Ubisoft send a man over every time I'd want to play one of their games. Not that I ever will again, but you know what I mean.
