always buy my games on disc so that if the balloon goes up, I still have the disc and the cd-key, and can keep right on enjoying my product.
This doesn't work anymore in many cases, as you noticed. More and more games will come tied-in to online services. I loath any kind of DRM, but Steam (which I thought was terrible for the consumer when it was launched) is knows one of the most "user-friendly" DRM services. It actually let's you play when not connected to the internet
This also means that if I forget my password, my game, which I spent £20 on, stops working.
I'm pretty sure you can write it down, then it's nothing more than a CD key.
As the grandkids kindly showed me, they also fit into an HDMI port...........
If you don't play:
10,000 + 50,000 = 60,000
If the result is "yes":
10,000 + 10,000 * 6/1 = 70,000 (original stake + winnings)
If the result is "no":
50,000 + 50,000 * 2/5 = 70,000 (original stake + winnings)
In this case it is always good to bet, because you will always win 10,000.
I rarely see Web sites use Shockwave. And if I do, it usually games. 99% of the stuff I see are in Flash. If I need it, I will just reinstall, look/use, and then uninstall it.
