I've been so negative towards IronClad and Stardock. I've criticized Impulse, the mini-updates, the patching process, the community, so many things. Although I've never criticized the game, because SINS is great!
I have to apologize though. I've recently bought a new computer, and SINS installed easily and quickly. Works great. I took it for granted.
I've tried many older games, and they all have problems. I just bought Crysis Warhead today from Steam, and it is prompting me for an Activation Code. Of course I don't have one because I bought it on Steam. EA tech support had an error on the web page for a few hours and I finally was able to get in and contact them for help. 24 hours till I get a response, maybe. I try to post in the Steam forums, but I must wait until someone approves my account to allow me to begin posted in the forums.
I see new games Like Spore, and heaven forbit Crysis Warhead does the same, where they have install limits and root-kits. All kinds of DRM to hastle and annoy.
Stardock and Ironclad are Saints; with some room for improvement. Sins is great; no heart ach, no DRM, no unreasonable requirements. You can actually close Impulse while you play the game, unlike Steam.
I will not be negative any more. Looking forward to the mini-expansions. Keep 'em coming. If you feel you need money for your quality work, I'm willing to pay (within reason of course).
Thanks for reading my random thoughts.
