My System Specs

Default EA De-Authorization Tool

Ok, so I was happy about this all-in-one tool from EA that will give you authorizations back on DRM laden EA games (list here, tool here) So I go to de-authorize my laptop of Crysis Warhead, since I only ever put it on this machine to test its performance. I never intend to play Warhead on my laptop, lol.

I uninstalled Warhead ages ago. So I launch the EA tool, it sees that I did indeed use up one authoriazation on this machine for it. Than it tells me I have to download a "specific" de-auth tool just for Warhead. Ok, so much for all-in-one. So I download that tool and launch it... ... and it tells me there is a problem with my authorization and I need to "verify" it by reinstalling the game.

What a effin joke!?! Gotta love EA

The Sims is now on there?!?!?

That's it. It's YAR!ing time. Which is sad because I own every expansion and "Junk addon" previous to those.

I heard The Sims 3 won't have any DRM on it?
