it seems like the free Creature Creator actually brings SecuROM with it. Thank you, EA.
Why am I not surprised, and annoyed, and yet another reason I avoid this DRM nonsense, restricting myself to non DRM games - and yes I am consistent. The same goes for any other vendor that trys to slip things onto my PC using the freebie method - or any other tactic - that I am not aware of. I take my insignificant miniscule product fee elsewhere.
I would get real Hissed Off if someone sneaked into my house and dumped a marketing leaflet in the hallway, or secretly left an infra-red camera monitoring my movements around the house.
Hands off my PC ..... its not a Vendor Marketing Opportunity, whatever their Bonus driven Marketing Director thinks. I have no issue with them marketing their "goods", its what makes the world turn round, no problem. However to me their credibility goes right out the window when they feel they have to use such methods - use the "letterbox" or "mailbox" (with no embedded hidden feature thank you)like anyone else, so I can see what they are up to.
