News Comments > Ubisoft: PC Piracy Rate 93-95%
102. Re: Ubisoft: PC Piracy Rate 93-95% Aug 22, 2012, 17:18 Overon
 
I want to see the basis of the 93-95% piracy rate. What is his source? I want to see a robust and scientifically rigorous and methodologically sound study.

The 93-95% rate seems absurd on its face. How can a maximum of 7% pay for your stuff and you can remain in business?

I say that there is more emphasis on making characters look real because it's easier than make them act real which is a lot harder.

The queue wait time estimate is rediculous. What is up with this console style "wait to play" bullshit. If I thought that was aceptable I would be playing console games with this kind of shit.

I thought the above and then I used the steam server browser. I was shocked to discover that there were MvM games I could join from it. But what was shocking is that the player count on these servers looked like 23/24 and 31/32 and I though 6 players was the max. I discovered that the rest of the players were SPECTATORS!

So are the upgrades persistent between gaming sessions or only during that session?

Pretty sure it's session only, can't see the point in playing a horde mode where you unlock something once and always have it moving forward, kind of takes the challenge out of playing new sessions, no?
Yes I wanted to know if it was like Killing Floor. Except when you level up it's permanent bonuses and then you have to seek higher difficulty levels where enemies move faster, do more damage, there are more of them, and there are more of the most powerful ones.

I have to comment on some of the textures. When the player leans out the textures on the wall look absolutely horribly low resolution. I hope the gameplay compensates for the old school textures.

You are only as good as your last game. And your last game was extremely subpar. Megatextures is it dead yet?

Wow. It must be the age of everyone dusting off their moldy IPs to see what money they can squeeze out of them.

Has there ever been a court case where such a "no class action" agreement for use has ever been upheld?

News Comments > GNU Guru: Linux Steam "Unethical"

First of all when Stallman says free he means free that you can do what you want with it. Also I'm dismayed of all the non squitors and ad hominems in this thread. Who cares if he eats stuff from his feat or if he's a hippy or his personal appearance. How are personal attacks in any relevent to his arguments? Arguments stand and fall on their own not on the person who is presenting them. Make an argument against his argument. Talking about his personality is irrelevent to the arguments being presented.

This is what I will do: I will present an argument against his. I understand that Stallman has an ideology and that which conflicts with it he find disagreeable. He takes an ideological stance. He wants to keep free software really free and ideologically pure. My idea of freedom is having the choice of software that is free and that which is not and choosing what you want to run. If you want to run only free software, that's fine, if you want to run only commercial sofware, that's fine too. If you want to run both, that's cool. That is more free than what he's saying. The freedom to run non free software!

As a side not, I'm on Windows because I have gotten used to it because that's the only PC platform I can really play games on. If more games would run on GNU/Linux natively (not WINE) I would not be running Windows.

If any of these dlc's/special editions/bonuses get released on PC, you can bet that they will be all bundled in a nice easy to download pirate package.

I have no sympathy for Fish nor Microsoft. They are both the villains in this story. The victim are the people who paid.

This is a great example of why I have stopped buying Ubisoft games. I drop somewhere in the neighborhood of $120 on games a month... mostly on the latest and greatest stuff coming out. But Ubisoft could come out with something that was the gaming equivalent to the second coming of Christ, and I wouldn't blink.

Bullshit! Every single one of you DRM-scared pussies is gonna bend over for Watch Dawgs .
Sure, just as Prez said: Skidrow and Razor1911 are your friends.

Megatextures have saved PC gaming. Everyone is using megatextures. Problem with megatextures is that from afar things look wonderful, when you get up close thy look like the textures from a N64 game.
