Just when we thought that things couldn’t have gotten any worse with the sequel to the award winning Gears of War game, another big problem pops up. Gamers of the PC version of Gears of War 2 have recently been reporting that they are unable to play the game even if they have purchased a legit license to go with their games. These digital certificates have apparently expired and the only way for these gamers to get back in the game is by setting back their system clock to make their computer believe they are in their proper time span.
The irony of this situation is that the people who were supposed to be targeted, the pirates, are those using illegal copies of the game. These users; however, are still gaming hard. It appears that Gears of War has yet another problem that they need to fix urgently. I think they rushed into the release of this game. They probably could have used a few month delay like GTA IV was forced to do.
Has this problem been fixed yet? It started on January 28th, and gamers will continue to experience this as the days go on until a fix is found. What is the biggest problem with the new Gears of War game in your opinions?
