Go Away Denuvo

Looks like they have done an oopsie…

If you don’t know what Denuvo is then count yourself lucky. The infamous piece of software is an anti-cheat and DRM enforcing company that comes pre-installed on many different games that are released on PC and most people agree that the software is limiting, heavily pubishes non-pirates and in some cases even causes games to slow down or run sub-optimally while it is running.

Well if that wasn’t bad enough it seems as though another event that took place this past weekend has caused people to be even more upset at the software being forcefully installed in their favourite games. This is due to the fact that the DRM software for some reason was completely offline during the weekend which meant that those who wanted to play their games were unable to as they were faced with a ‘could not connect to server’ error. Internet sleuths discovered however that the domain used for authenticating game activations had run out for the company that same weekend and as such it was believed that due to this Denuvo had forgot to renew their license with this domain causing their services to out across multiple games.

How embarrassing, but yet again just another example of why this software sucks and developers really need to stop partnering with it. That’s all for now, and as always. It’s not just a game, It’s a Life.
