Word is, From Dust SUCKS on PC (and has sh*t DRM)

Dust in your PC is a classic problem, and one that Ubisoft has apparently parodies with the computer port of From Dust. The weird little God-game has earned much rage from the PC gamer community, and it's been advised that yo...

Review: From Dust photo
Review: From Dust
by Jim Sterling

Anybody who has even glanced at From Dust can tell you that it is unique. Describing it in simple terms is quite difficult indeed, which is strangely ironic, for the game is, itself, deceptively simple. 

From Dust defies genre by dipping its toe in the waters of strategy and God simulation without committing to either, but under the inscrutability of its definition, there lies a game that really isn't very hard to grasp at all. 

It's just hard to appreciate.
