Uncracked Gears Of War For PC Is Not Working Anymore

Gamers who tried to play Gears Of War on their PCs yesterday were in for a big surprise as the (legitimately obtained) game refused to run.

As part of the game's protection, it checks a digital certificate each time the game launches. Apparently, the certificate was set to expired on January 28, 2009, less than 15 months after the its official launch on November 6, 2007.

As of now, the game is unplayable unless you set your PC clock to an older date, or use a game crack. EPIC has already acknowledged the problem, but still doesn't promise any quick fixes. "We have been notified of the issue and are working with Microsoft to get it resolved," a super moderator posted on the official forum. "Sorry for any problems related to this. I'll post more once we have a resolution."

Needless to say, the problem applies only to legit customers who didn't use a No-CD fix. If you are one of those, you can always head to our Game Fixes section and grab the No-CD patch.

Shame. Oh well. They deserv everything they are getting.By the way. Do people still buy PC games and do they still make games for PCs? I thought by now everyone would have a next gen home console - where all the action is. Guess some people have got to learn the hard way! Apart from the hentai games i don't see much on PCs really.

Yes PC games still sell.. To the contrary, ppl still play PC games. GIven at any moment PC games withstand more popularity then console games. What i mean by that is if you went back to MOH:AA ppl are still playing that on the PC online. CS 1.6 is still very popular. So PC very alive and well, and much better then consoles

pc games not only have a much more longevity then console games(most) they tend to look better, run faster, be much more customizable, and well theres way better selection, sure it mya not have all the game but theres many exclusives for the pc, as well console games on the pc... not to mention older games... so despite what the console manufactures tell the media, pc's are thriving... why do you think new video cards can sell for $700+ because there's a demand, and its drivin by gaming

they were crying before because they couldn't sell enough of the pc copies of GOW... how much more obvious does it have to be? rather than stop making pc games altogether.. how bout ditching the stupid security where technically they are punishing the legit consumers.Oh jeese.. a small problem a crack could easily bypass and the creators of the game need to ask Microsoft for help on how to fix the problem.

The Pro's for piracy is simple, get something for free with no questions asked, do what you can with it on your own.The Con's are simple, you have to take the time to download 3-20Gb of data for said archive, than theres the remote chance of going to jail for said bulls**t archive you downloaded.I wouldn't go near GoW even with a stick.

Piracy equals nothing, it equals a failing market. It equals to the PC not getting games made anymore. Maybe if you dumb asses would get ur heads out of your assholes you'd realize that your f**king up the PC market by pirating. I hope you all go to hell for your ignorance. Its no wonder they pull s**t like this. Bunch dumb f**ks. Buy the game, 50 bucks ouu thats cheap ass f**k dumb ass kids. Thats chump change, i make that in less than 4 hours of work.

f**king up the market?I tried to get a copy of Fallout 3 UK version at a local vendor, because i pay for games that deserve it. Took more then a month to get it though, probably because it was sold out.So a game like FAllout 3 with minimal copy protection sells probably better then most of those heavily protected games. Reasons might be partly the overall quality of the game, but i think that the invasive copy protection methods that are in use nowadays decrease a games worth for a big part.

Furthermore I think we should all listen to that moron who said that piracy is gonna ruin PC gaming. The words "World of Warcraft" is tossed around a lot these days it makes more money in a day than most see in their lives. It is updated to make piracy almost impossible. Piracy will continue and money will continue to be made off the people who pay for the games. You are a moron. GET IN THE CORNER...and swear less your not gettin anywhere ranting on a megagames forum about piracy.
