I have really been looking forward to playing both TOMI and SOMI:SE but I was saddened to find out that I am unable to play SOMI: SE because it requires you have Steam (and thus an Internet connection). I do not have an internet connection on the PC I use for gaming (and can not afford one), so my question is:
Am I able to purchase TOMI on my dad's Mac (or on the PC at my social club) and then burn the installer to a DVD-R, to play on my PC when I get back home?
I really hope the answer is yes because, frankly, all this Internet connection requirement for every F***ing single player game released these days is forcing me to give up on new games and I don't think that's fair! I've already had to miss out on the likes of Bioshock, The Orange Box (and all the games within), Stalker and GTA IV.
Infact, things are so bad that when I purchased a boxed copy of the game Auidosurf a while back, I only realised an Internet connection was required once I got back home. The writing stating such was in a tiny (and we're talking almost unreadable) font on the lower part of the box (not even within the system requirements box).
Anyway, the shop I had purchased it from refuse to give refunds unless the game is broken (thanks GAME, hmph), so I ended up having to download a pirated and cracked copy of Audiosurf just so I could play a game I'd already payed for. Now, if this is the state of things then can someone please explain to me how this overprotective DRM is a good thing? Also consider that EA recently took a risk and scrapped DRM for the Sims 3 and it went straight to No. 1 in the charts... says it all really!
Anywho, sorry about the long rant but I really hope that you're going to tell me that I will be able to play TOMI because if not then gaming can go F*** itself (sorry for coming across as mega-angry but I'm just so upset at missing out on SOMI:SE when I've waiting so damn long for a new MI release). I look forward to your response, Thanks.
