BioWare has revealed that the PC version of Mass Effect will use a copy protection system that re-authenticates the game every ten days.
The game will use the copy protection product SecuROM, which has been previously criticized when it shipped with BioShock and a number of The Sims 2 expansion packs.
"Mass Effect PC uses SecuROM which requires an online activation for the first time you play Mass Effect PC after installation,"
1) Parkour isn’t just for 12th century assassins. Couriers make excellent use of this French style of movement as the main character of Mirror’s Edge proudly shows us:
Take the hint, UPS!
2) Faith's bust can't be bigger than an A cup. Seriously, anything over a tiny B and we’d be seeing cleavage from the first-person perspective.
3) Dramamine prevents motion sickness and it also makes you
It's time again to drool over Mafia II as 2K Czech releases another shot from its delicious-looking game.
The free-roaming follow-up is set in the fictional city of Empire circa 1950, and promises to retain the original's less-sandbox mission structure, while also letting you get into scraps with the police for kicks.
We'll be posting a massive Mafia II soon, so keep a look out.

BioWare CEO Ray Muzyka says that the developer has major plans for the next batch of download content for Mass Effect. Trouble is don't expect to see the second wave any time soon.
"We have big plans for post-release content with the franchise for both Xbox 360 and PC," Muzyka said when we caught up with him recently. "We haven't released any details on that yet, but it's something we want to actively support."
BioWare is releasing the Bring Down the Sky download content for free for the PC version of Mass Effect.
It'll be available on launch day - May 28 in North America, June 6 in Europe - but you'll need to be a registered BioWare community member to get it.
Bring Down the Sky's already available for the Xbox 360 version of the sci-fi RPG, but it costs 400 points on Xbox Live Marketplace.

Mercenaries 2 creative director Cameron Brown has been talking about "moving on" to Mercenaries 3, and is (somewhat) cautious when speaking about bringing Mercs to Wii.
In an interview with Next Generation that touched on the delays incurred by the upcoming Mercenaries 2: World in Flames, creative director Cameron Brown said, "While we don't want to delay the game, and we certainly don't want to disappoint anyone--and we're keen to
Console fans don't have to concern themselves with such things as system requirements for games, but it's bread and butter to the PC crowd.
Which is a very roundabout way of saying BioWare's revealed the minimum and recommended hardware specs for the PC version of Mass Effect, which is out in June.
We won't beat about the bush - here's the deal:
Xbox 360's first download content for Mass Effect won't feature in the PC version's retail copy, as one might have expected/hoped/thought-would-be-a-grand-idea (delete as appropriate).
BioWare's project director for Mass Effect on PC, Diarmid Clarke, responded with a flat "No" when asked by IGN whether Bring Down the Sky will feature in the retail game. Previously this issue had been left up in the air by the
Yesterday we unveiled assorted juicy bits regarding what Mafia II was bringing to the checker-clothed table. So as we continue to squeal details like a yellow rat, how’s ‘bout an EXCLUSIVE look at some of the Mafia II’s gameplay and environments. (Sorry for screaming.) We’re of the opinion that these mobster muscle-cars are the absolute bee’s knees, but non-motorheads should at least notice that gangland gamers are in for a considerably faster experience than the early-auto era found in the original Mafia.
It's been six years since it won the hearts of PC gamers (and alienated the console crowd with inferior ports), but cult 1930s crime epic Mafia is finally getting a sequel. Set in a new era - the '40s and early '50s - Mafia II will follow the rags-to-riches story of Vito Scaletta, a young hood trying to make it as a mobster in a New York-inspired city lorded over by three rival crime families.
