    Bioshock 2 Has Uber-Lame SecuROM DRM & Five Install Cap

    Have these people not yet learned we don't like being told when and where and how many times we can install a game we've paid for? Sheesh...

    Bioshock 2 will come both as a boxed retail product and a for-pay digital download if that's more to your taste. Looking at the game's page on Steam reveals something disappointing for those of us against invasive DRM: the game will utilize SecuROM and comes with a five-machine activation limit.
    While it is not totally clear yet if the Steam version will have the 5 install activation limit, it should still be noted that the retail box buyers are getting rammed in the keester. Especially considering this is a multi-player game that some people might play for years if the online play is (ya right) good.

    I'm still buying it for the single-player, but I will certainly be using Steam to hopefully circumvent the activation limit.

    Not like it won't be cracked and hacked.

    It will also require the games for windows live client. I don't want anything to do with installing extra crap that doesn't do anything.

    all it does is tie in your 360 account if you have one. also in the article it says you dont have to use live to play single player.

    Looks like the only thing set in stone is SecuROM for a disc check (for retail games), but nothing on the Steam version yet.

    Do you actually need to install the client in order to create an offline profile? If so, it is dumb.

    Somewhat, but the thread title paints a picture of despair. So far all we know that it will be using Games for Windows Live (a minor hassle), and only SecuROM for a disc check. So far no mention of activation limit (the original steam page had 15 activations).
