    I purchased a disc copy from walmart for $60. 11gb install, 2 discs. Once I get to 10gb installed, it crashes. I can’t even install the $60 I just wasted. THIS is bs.

    Yeah Cody, you better pirate it, like me. Also the pirated one doesn’t have ANY of the problems, because “protection” (lol) is deleted. Why the hell would you waste 60 bugs?! Another way might be, get the pirated version, don’t use the crack, but your original stuff from the 60$ version. I pirate anything which has UPlay, Origin or Denuvo (3DM & CPY releases), because DRM sucks and I will never pay a pile of shit for it. You should too, otherwise they 3will add DRM again and legit users might get the same problems again.
