Epic Fail!

January 30, 2009

No this isn’t a post with a random picture, this is infact a post about the game company Epic. It seems someone screwed up big time on the DRM for the PC version of the original Gears of War.

Gamers who tried to play Gears of War on the PC Thursday ran into a slight snag: it seems that the digital certificate that allows the game to run expired on January 28, 2009.

So basically your going to have to change your computers clock to play the game until Epic fix it. 

Epic Games is aware of the issue, but don’t expect much hard news about what to do about the inability to play the game. “We have been notified of the issue and are working with Microsoft to get it resolved,” a super moderator posted on the forum. “Sorry for any problems related to this. I’ll post more once we have a resolution.” (Microsoft is the publisher, and GoWis a Games for Windows release.)

Another reason to avoid DRM.

Oh and here is that picture you so greatly desired when you read the title –
