Sadly this won't stop pirates, it will just make them more self-righteous in their piracy

Legit purchasers will also demand access to this monster feature for extra challenge.

Presumably the purpose of this isn't to punish pirates directly, but to force them to go on forums and ask "How do I kill the scorpion guy?" and get called out.
chumbucket
brilliant!

Gotta say... that's a really cool and interesting twist on DRM. I approve.

Would've been better if he was wearing a pirate hat and eye patch though.

Bohemia interactive pioneered this wayy back in the beginning of the 00s.

With Operation flashpoint, if you played online any weapon you touched would become wildly inaccurate and do virtually no damage.

In Armed Assault, the game would turn you into a seagull in the middle of a multiplayer session.

In Arma 2 the game will make all manner of obnoxious noises and the screen will take an underwater effect, and your weapons will, again perform terribly.

What's more likely to prevent me from pirating the game is that unlike the first two, this one looks like shit.

It's like the video gamer personification of the Steam client. "Update me! Log in! Why aren't you online!? FRAME RATE RAAAARRGGHH!!!"
FeeFiFoFoTheFifeFifeBrown
Cute, but stuff like this tends to get defeated quickly with better cracks.

"What's more likely to prevent me from pirating the game is that unlike the first two, this one looks like shit."

Fucking-A right. This looks terribly...serious? Barf.

The first two levels are a parody of "modern" shooter levels. In the third level Sam turns a corner and is confronted by about 30 headless kamikazes, and it becomes Serious Sam again.

Awesome, they need to do more stuff like this for anti-piracy in games.

Not that it works, seeing as it's always just a matter of time before someone cracks it and gets around it. But it sure is cool and better than your standard DRM bullshit.

I can get behind this.

Just so you all know, this isn't designed to be uncrackable. What it's designed to do is have the guys who originally crack the game go in, do their work, then test the game for 10 minutes. Since this doesn't happen in the first 10 minutes, the crackers assume that their cracked version of the game works and release it. Now, the various pirate sites are tainted with these broken versions, AND the crackers have to go back and re-crack the game, meaning more time for Croteam to make sales.
Spoonybard
The most infuriating trick of this type was on the old Operation: Flashpoint game, in which a cracked copy of the game would subtly and gradually degrade your dude's ability to shoot straight until an already grueling game became completely unplayable. I'm fairly certain I somehow triggered it, despite having purchased the game on CD ROM.

The original SimCity would besiege your city with endless disasters if you didn't enter the proper code from the manual.

FABIO
Master of Orion would do the same thing: watching your empire self-destruct.

CJH
did he just tear some dudes heart out and hurl it at the monster in desperation?
Sphinx
Sam doesn't do anything in desperation, that was a planned attack.

Pompoulus
nobody 'plans' a heart attack

sorry

Caminante Nocturno
Scorpion wins.

Oops, wrong game.

Ha, ha, ha.
