    I forgot Witcher 2 was DRM'd in some random countries because of the local publisher, despite being DRM free everywhere else. So fucking retarded. wHAt iS tHE inTErneT?

    And when they patched it with GoG executable to prevent hiccups and to double framerate. Theirs publisher complained about that removal. Something about doing stuff against agreement.

    RDR is not Denuvo isn't? As I understand the problem with Rockstar games are less Denuvo and more of the Rockstar Club thing?

    It uses both, just like many games use Steam and Denuvo DRMs.

    It has Arxan, not Denuvo. Plus custom triggers.

    "EA post-launch support for Battlefield 5 was cut short, let's hope they would not do the same for Battlefield 6, or I get VERY ANGRY" - if all customers are this stupid, EA has nothing to worry about.
    "Playstation 4 games on discs will run forever" - while forgetting about Day 1 patches, which are often larger than a game on disk.
    "EGS is as bad as Steam" - while forgetting about existence of DRM-free stores, like itch.io or GOG.

    The video reminds me of Slashdot guys that buy Playstations, iPhones and Macs, because they value open source and consumer rights - so they won't install Windows.
