    FYI the IGA thing ain't spyware.

    It's just like plenty of other games (like NFS) where they have billboards and posters advertising real life products. The only reason your IP is used is so they can show advertisements relevant to your country and/or language.

    As an avid BF gamer, played all except BF:V and BF2:SF, 2142 is amazing. The titan mode kicks ass, the concept is really awesome. Of course I've only played the demo as I don't have the money to blow on the actual game.

    Ya, I don't really like Halo. Its "okay", but I'd rather stick with Battlefield and WarRock, which by the way is free, and worth a try.

But, I like them because they are somewhat realistic. I'm not into any of those "fantasy" games and such, so once the realism was taken out, I lost interest. I will try it out on friends computers, but I highly doubt I'll ever buy it.

    I've heard the same thing ..

    So. In the latest CGW podcast, they received retail boxed copies of BF 2142.

    When you open the box, a big slip of paper falls out first, preceeding any discs or manuals. The slip of paper says, essentially, that 2142 includes monitoring software which runs while your computer is online, and records "anonymous" information like your IP address, surfing habits (probably via cookie scans), and other "computing habits" in order to report this information back to ad companies and ad servers, which generates in-game ads.

    Now, I can live with certain in-game ads (though apparently there will be Dodge truck and Neon ads in the bleak, futuristic world of 2142), but including a lengthy description - outside of even the Eula - seems to indicate even EA knows that this is some shady borderline spyware sh*t. I don't support it and won't be buying 2142 (for a host of other reasons, too).
    I'm not too shocked though, most protected software contain some sort of "spyware". EA just sucks about it more than other publishers. Sony's Securom sucks for "spying" too. It scans your programs (even ones not running) and the game refuses to run if any it doesn't like are on your system.

    I think lots of people will be happy to break the seal on the game box to discover this. How many stores accept returns of software once the box seal is broken?

    To this day, I believe SoftIce is the best piece of software I've ever bought. It's got millions of uses, including the removal of annoying protection :X.
