Gamers Regret

Gamer regret- a sudden, horrifying sense of emptiness when you muse on all the other things you could have done with your game time.
Clive Thompson has written on the sudden feeling of gamer regret. "I was 10 days into playing Dungeon Maker: Hunting Ground -- a little RPG I reviewed last month -- and I was poking around the "settings" menu. I noticed that it had a "time played" option, which shows you how long you've been toiling away at the game. Curious, I clicked it.
Thirty-six hours."
Clive continues on the internal debate gamers feel

Removing starforce from your PC

administrator's picture

Starforce, the copy protection software is basically a device controller (driver) that is stealthily installed into your operating systems core when a starforce protected game disk is first read.

Unfortunately there are a fair number of games that come with Starforce "Protection" included.
These include V8 Supercars 2 and 3. It is likely that if you have played these games that these hardware drivers will be installed on your computer.

The problems they cause are many and varied starting with difficulties burning CDs and DVDs, higher burn fails, potential damage to the optical drive itself, and possibly PC slow downs.

I strongly recommend that you remove these drivers form your PC.
Here are some pages to read about the problem and how to remove the drivers.
