This game is quickly becoming the new Duke Nukem Forever unfortunately, because what I saw of the previews really seems to be great.
Umm what? Heroes of Stalingrad was announced August 2009. It has not even been a year yet since announcement. Duke Nukem Forever was announced in 1997. Your comparison is crazy.

We shall see in upcoming quarters how well they have done their DRM research and whether or not will increase sales (we know it may know that their future results may show increased revenue considering that ubisoft thinks that their PC games are worth $60 when they used to cost $40).

As long as the cost to develop the games was significantly lower than the revenue, which I think it was, they really made out very well profit wise. Good for them.

Wow that Boot Daily's review of the Bigfood Killer 2100 network card is a farce. I encourage everyone to read it. It reads like a review prepared by the manufacturer of the card.
Case in point:
When Bigfoot Networks started out a few years ago, it has the simple desire to take one of the biggest gripes of online-gaming head-on and that was lag (latency). To many of us in-the-know, it succeeded but unfortunately for the majority it still didn’t see the “value” in what it was offering.
Are you serious? Almost everyone panned the card as being unnecessary and overpriced and having little measurable benefit.
At an MSRP of $129 dollars, this is an upgrade that – to me – is a total no-brainer. The “tactical feel” while playing on the 2100 is something that’s hard to put into a benchmark. Its overall smoothness of gameplay is truly something you must experience to fully appreciate.
Wow a no-brainer? $129 for a network card that does almost nothing for you is a no-brainer? This review is an uncritical sham. They gave the card a 10/10.

Heya

I just started a project for my study regarding piracy. If you guys ever stumble on a scientific article that talks about piracy and maybe the psychological processes of pirates, please PM me (if that's possible?) or send me an email to v _ poppelier @ hotmail . com

I completely understand if you can't be arsed But it's worth the try ^^
Eldaron you should do a search of PubMed looking for psychological research on software piracy. In fact if you google "pubmed software piracy" you will get links to some abstracts you might want to get the full text of. Pubmed is your friend. If you are in school, then your school will have access to the whole pubmed database and you can get full text studies rather than just the abstracts.
Here is one instresting thing I found:
Cyberpsychol Behav. 2008 Aug;11(4):391-8.

Deindividuation and Internet software piracy.
Hinduja S.

Department of Criminology and Criminal Justice, Florida Atlantic University, Jupiter, Florida 33458-2906, USA. hinduja@fau.edu

Abstract
Computer crime has increased exponentially in recent years as hardware, software, and network resources become more affordable and available to individuals from all walks of life. Software piracy is one prevalent type of cybercrime and has detrimentally affected the economic health of the software industry. Moreover, piracy arguably represents a rend in the moral fabric associated with the respect of intellectual property and reduces the financial incentive of product creation and innovation. Deindividuation theory, originating from the field of social psychology, argues that individuals are extricated from responsibility for their actions simply because they no longer have an acute awareness of the identity of self and of others. That is, external and internal constraints that would typically regulate questionable behavior are rendered less effective via certain anonymizing and disinhibiting conditions of the social and environmental context. This exploratory piece seeks to establish the role of deindividuation in liberating individuals to commit software piracy by testing the hypothesis that persons who prefer the anonymity and pseudonymity associated with interaction on the Internet are more likely to pirate software. Through this research, it is hoped that the empirical identification of such a social psychological determinant will help further illuminate the phenomenon.

Oh Hellbinder, it all depends on what you mean by "make a game." There is more than just writing the code and creating the art to "making a game."

I have read this thread and no one has managed to convince me through reason and evidence that they are right.

Try harder. I respond well to evidence and reason. Please avoid making logical fallacies.

Thank you.
