News Comments > Crytek: PC Sales to Piracy Ratio 1:15 or 1:20
91. Re: No subject Jun 28, 2008, 04:02 Muscular Beaver
 
Actually yes. It's very common for installers to report back to a server when a game was installed, and also fairly common for SP games to check in too even if they aren't going to be locked out.

Its also very common that exactly that gets blocked by a firewall.
I, for example, have never clicked "yes" when I got a popup at the installation (!). Only when I noticed that the game wont install because of that, would I click yes.

Thats exactly the same thing that was claimed 2006 already. I think it even was diabloii.net, too.
Funny.

Geez, I really dont understand why you find it so hard to believe what hes saying. As he said, this smells like double standard. Either you guys are CoD4 fanboys or you simply cant accept that you might be wrong. Or both.

News Comments > Crytek - EU Thinks Shooters are Bad, Mmmkay?
2. Thats not really true Jun 25, 2008, 10:11 Muscular Beaver
 
The normal European gamer likes their games just like the Americans do. Its the people that dont play (much) and can not be called "gamers" that think bad about shooters - thanks to the media. And I think its as bad in the US.

Shooters are actually called "Killergames" here in the media. Everytime when theres a young person doing something bad, its mostly those "Killergames" that are getting the blame. Violence have always been a taboo in Germany since the end of WW2.

Im getting really sick with all this piracy blaming.
Why dont they just fuck off, build a dildo out of their POS "copy protections", shove it in their ass and only do console games? Seriously Im so fucking sick of it...
Having to put the CD/DVD in the drive everytime you want to play a different game is bad enough (WTF, I feel like in Amiga times, playing Indy4)...

This reminds me of witch hunts. "OMG! He didnt buy our game because he thinks it sucks! WITCH WITCH WITCH! BURN HER!"
"OMG! Someone tested our game before official release! Must be a... WITCH!!!! BURN HER!!!"

I have securom on my machine from bioshock, it works fine, never given me any problems whatsoever. like 99.9% of people with it on their machines.
Pity the 0.1% rant and rave like the world is ending in predictable fashion. It isn't.

Where from did you get those numbers? Last night while on crack?

Reminded me of this:

And I'm still not buying EA games anymore. You shouldnt either. So I really dont pity him or other people who have problems with copy protections.

As for the lack of governors for the settlements, you know you can turn that off at the start of the game in both MTW2 and Rome so you can manage all settlements without need for family members. I think its a much better game with that setting since you can use your family as generals and not moving them around from one city to the next.

Yes I knew that, and I always turned it off. But still your settlements will all make no profits or huge minus because no governor is there. Riots will rise up much quicker too. Especially at the beginning of the game you need money money money. You cant get it when you have no governors because your cities will make minus.

Managing a lot of settlements wasnt the problem for me. But managing them efficiently was a huge problem since I never had enough family members to cover all of them and also have a few armies going. Anyway, Rome was very cool, though it sucked sometimes when you told you units to go there or attack that, and they simply would go somewhere else or attack something completely different. or when you told your cavalry to charge the fleeing unit they would simply walk besides them until they reached the map border. Lots of stuff like that.

I bought MTW2, and I was extremely disappointed. The campaign is so fucking hard and stupid its not funny. I was so frustrated, I simply uninstalled it after a few hours of play. The stupid Vatican always gave me orders to join a crusade but I didnt have the troops to send em there and soon after they got angry at me and excommunicated me. That made several other AIs attack me at the same time. Nothing I could do.
Not to mention the lack of governors was 10 times worse than in RomeTW.
I might try it again at some time, but not any time soon. I really hope they fixed stupid stuff like that in Empire.

Well, if you look at HAWX, you will notice its just a souped up Afterburner with a Tom Clancy tag on top (dunno why he would give his good name for such a crap game). So no need to call out for realism or authenticity.

I bet more non-entertainment companies wish they could blame their customers for shitty sales and call them criminals.
Ignorance par excellence. Nothing new.

But Ill give those idiots a hint: I was a huge fan of the Splinter Cell series. Bought all of them (even that POS Starforce infested Chaos Theory), except Double Agent. Why?
Because I had no money? No.
Because I pirated it instead? No.
Because my computer was too slow? No.
Because IT WAS A FUCKING POS CONSOLE PORT WHICH DIDNT EVEN ALLOW TO SET CUSTOM CONTROLS PROPERLY?
DING DING DING!

And that was just an example out of many more. But sure, go ahead and blame the HUGE HUGE HUGE base of pirates. Doesnt matter if you dont have a simple fact about piracy being that big of an impact. Also doesnt matter that your credibility goes down the drain if you count every single copy as lost sale. Ignorance will help make it all good for sure!

Actually it might be a good thing when all the big developers and publishers wont release for the PC anymore, because the small developers will get MUCH more money then and will start PC gaming over again, as it was 10-20 years ago. High quality games will be released again, maybe even the flight sim, space sim and adventure genres will be resurrected again!

So they are making a few tweaks to the engine (what the patch should have done for free) and making a "new" parallel story and calling it a new game (for prolly $40)?

Yep, thats my EA.

I don't want it now - I wanted it 10 years ago.

Thats included in that mentality.
Seriously, if you dont want "news" about, ignore em. Sure, you might miss the release announcement, but who cares, you dont want it anymore anyway.

And I thought I was an extremely impatient SOB...

Didnt some guys had a script to replace "Starforce" by some other word? Why dont you make one that replaces DNF news with porn or WoW2 news if its bothering you so much?

I dont understand all this bitching. I understood it at the very beginning when they still told us release dates, but jesus, this is so long ago, people need to get over it. Either this game comes out or it doesnt come out. If it sucks, who cares? If its good, it was worth waiting and you dont need to be a fanboy to see it that way.
This "I want to play it now!" mentality reminds me much more of 12 year olds than of PC gaming "veterans"...

lol... if people can decide what will be shown in the series it will prolly be like this:
"OMG HE SAID PENIS!"
"OMG!!111oneeleven!1"
"Everyone vote for this to be shown in the series!!!!"
"Already done!"

1 week later in the new episode:
Todays episode "The Penis Penis Intervention" will show gory verbal cockfights between Col. Glans and Capt. Scrotum. Who will prevail and save Earth from total censorship of the invading prude aliens?
