Read about this, as usual this is a publisher stunt to blame PC gamers as pirates. He specifically only mentioned the one thing, which could be associated with PC gamers, not the fact console versions were out almost 2 weeks before the PC(2 days before release).

If you guys are going to talk about this make sure you talk about the whole story, including consoles. If not, publishers will continue to get away with treating the PC gamers like crap and get away with it. I.e. justifying draconian drm, such as always on or not releasing PC versions of games.

It helps them spread the lie and demonize ALL PC gamers in the media. So all PC gamers who do buy PC games, get black eyes as well. Why do you think PC gamers have a bad reputation with the general population.

There isn't some conspiracy to damn you or ALL PC gamers. Stop with that bullshit. Please. Stop. Please. Stop.

Piracy is higher on PC games. Simple fact. It's unavoidable.

Beamer, can you elaborate on why you don't like Chrome?

You're making me nervous.

It's not like it's some huge thing for me, I use it at work, but I won't log in to my gmail account using it.

Google knows more about me than I know about me by now. But I won't connect those dots for them. I want to make them actually do some work to know everything about me. Make them do some digging to know what I do on the internet other than on their website - pretty sure Chrome feeds them my entire browsing history. Pretty sure Chromebooks feed them everything ever.

It's not like it's a hard, fast thing. And I haven't looked into it so maybe there isn't as much reporting home as I expect. But Google is a data company, so they release free things in exchange for data. Microsoft is a software company, so they release free things to sell software (but also collect data, it just isn't the priority.) FireFox is a non-profit, so it releases free software just to spread itself.

Chrome isn't really any better than IE11 or FF at this point, so I use each interchangeably.

I'm sitting here wondering why you care Beamer? Are you bored? One guy boycotting Ubisoft isn't the end of your world is it?

Totally bored.
Plus, the authoritative, or even fascist (hahaha), use of "ban" cracked me up, as if ubi is desperately sending agents trying to get games into his house.

I said earlier yesterday, or even late Monday, that when someone makes a post assuming they're older than everyone else here it's a sign they have no argument at all. And he proved it. There was plenty of crap in the 80s and 90s. Test Drive games with spin wheel DRM and $20 car packs despite those cars being on the cover of the game...

11 posts, joined last week. Ignored.

I just don't get the massive grudges people have. It seems like a nerd culture thing. Get one thing wrong and people take to the internet forever to tell everyone how awful you were.

Silent Hunter 4 was an abomination. But it was 2007.

Some people here have grudges against Steam. Fine. Steam is actively screwing you, assuming you do not like it. Personally, I avoid Chrome because I feel like Google should have to work for my data rather than me giving it to them on a silver platter.

But Silent Hunter 4 was one thing 8 years ago. It isn't like every game since has kept doing it. It isn't like it's even EA, who I feel is a bit dumb to boycott, who repeatedly finds creative, innovative new ways to make the same dumb mistakes. Even then, if they make a good game without those huge penalties, why not play it?

Life is short. Free time is short. While there's no shortage of great games to play, if something is calling your name, avoiding it because a publisher once dumped a game out prematurely and never fixed it seems questionable. You're only hurting yourself. And, if that's your standard, you'll eventually get to the point that you won't touch a game from any publisher or any developer and suddenly all you can play are games you make yourself.

Sorry, all you'll allow your wife to play are games you made yourself.

This company is a lost cause. Why do you keep supporting it? Oh the casuals who have no clue.. Such a shame.

UBISOFT PROUDLY BANNED IN THIS HOUSEHOLD SINCE SILENT HUNTER 4 AND WILL BE FOREVER.

Haven't missed a thing.

Except for Far Cry 2, Far Cry 3, every Assassin's Creed, Rayman Origins, Blood Dragon, and Stick of Truth.
Games you probably have some pithy response for, but have basically universal acclaim on this board.

Universal Pictures once released a movie I hated, too, but I didn't hold an 8 year grudge.

You think my ban is because I didn't like a game?

I like that you call it "ban." That makes you sound powerful in your household. Like you have control.

And I know it wasn't. It was because SH4 had huge bugs and terrible support.
It was 8 years ago and Ubi has released some great games since.

Everyone screws up. "Banning from my household" games that are good because a game 8 years ago is bad just seems petty and like you're only hurting yourself. And anyone unfortunate enough to live in your household that really wants to play Blood Dragon.

I bought a Vespula because my Exactmat wrist rest was no longer functional.

Sadly, the Vespula wrist rest is smaller. And I just kept the Exactmat and put the actual Vespula in a closet. All I wanted was the wrist rest.

I also never, ever use the other side.

I've heard there are animal whisperers or whatever so that you can't just lure a tiger into the base and watch it kill everyone.
Which makes me a bit sad, as that never got old.

However, the most I died in that game, outside one mission I hated, was liberating this one base. Every single time I did it and tried to walk out a tiger would maul me. Every time. Tiger spawning was random, right? So I'd go a different direction and get mauled. Or I'd look, see a tiger, kill the tiger from a distance, walk out and get mauled by an entirely different tiger.

It was like Peter Griffin and the raccoon.

Big difference between official reviews and user ratings so far. Will be interesting to see how this ends up.

Metacritic Critic Score 87
Metacritic User Score 5.6


Those users haven't even played the game yet. Astroturfing, or whatever.

There you go. "The more I go back to old roots" means you go back to the old roots!

The direct translation is "the more often I see expensive games the more often I pirate them."

You even quoted it there. "The more often I return" means you do return!


"The more I see these $100 releases with season passes and bullshit, the more I go back to old roots."

I go back to my old roots, my old roots being

"Pirate the game, buy it complete a year later for $10 with everything"

So I'll ask again. Where did I SAY I pirate games? Where, when and what examples have I gone to my old roots? Or pirated a game? You misunderstanding a statement does not mean the way you (or anyone else short of a judge) misunderstand it is true.

You cannot 'directly' translate English, to English while adding your own words or meanings. The direct translation is - "The more I see these $100 releases with season passes and bullshit, the more I go back to old roots. Pirate the game, buy it complete a year later for $10 with everything " not whatever YOU made up. A quote is also directly copied, not replacing and adding words to make it in line with what you preach.

Again, back to the basic law comment. Where have I admitted anything ?

On a lighter note... i almost edit failed for a third time. See, us scummy, guilty, entitled pirates can learn!


"My old roots being pirate the game... tell me where I said pirate the game!"

It doesn't matter that you pay $10 later. Who are you, Wimpy? You'd gladly pay some developer a dollar tomorrow for a video game today?
The game is $60 today. If you play it without paying $60 today you are pirating it.

Please, show me this quote you speak of "You literally said you pirate games"

As I assume you know what literally means.


There you go. "The more I go back to old roots" means you go back to the old roots!

FC3 had no infinite respawns

Well..... Technically it did, right? I mean, if you wipe out a patrol of bad guys, more of them will show up randomly. And if you leave a particular area then come back a little while later, there will likely be bad guys again.

It hides it much better because it doesn't have the static checkpoints where the bad guys respawned every 10 seconds in exactly the same configuration a la FC2, but, I mean, it's also not as if you can just wipe out all the bad guys in one zone. I once wound up wiping up roughly a dozen jeeps' worth of bad guys, and another one pulled up, and I finally just said "Fuck it!" and left.

Sidenote though, if you take out the outpost of an area, that area will become a friendly zone, and no bad guys will spawn there anymore. I don't know whether that's really a better way of doing it though, because it would quickly make the whole island basically boring as hell, since it was WAAAAAY too easy to clear those outposts.

and was a fantastic open-world FPS that possibly went on too long (more accurately, did a bad job at making you realize you were only halfway done and not 90% done) but was a huge blast.

Agreed. Ignoring the crappy story, it's a ton of fun to play.

The vapid bro main character saving the world was weak, but some will argue it was supposed to be meta. Still, the actual gameplay was top notch.

The only one who ever argued that was the writer, Yohalem. And his arguments changed based on whatever he felt he needed to defend. The whole thing was just a pisspoor story, no matter how badly he tried to pretend that it was deliberate and was supposed to "make you think about all the stupid things games make you do."

Yeah, it's a game, Yohalem. That's kind of why I fucking play them. Rolleyes
Once you took an area out the guys didn't come back. Prior to that they did, but it was mean to seem like the island was alive. No different than any open world, I guess. FC2, while I didn't get far enough in to see, I'd heard has spawns in front of you as you fight.

I had read another article on FC4 mentioning the "meta"ness of FC3. I didn't know the writer had said that. It didn't ring true for me. I didn't think it ruined the game, by any means, but it was just lame. Some seemed to think the older brother would have been better, but I disagree. The German guy, now that was a protagonist.

And why does there "need" to be internet/wifi in school to begin with? So kids can text and game all day? Show me some comprehensive studies on what percentage of the internet is used for actual study and actual learning. If anything I warrant it's the opposite as they're just finding it easier to plagiarize work. And lastly, why don't the fucking parents pay for their brats? People without kids are so sick of getting screwed by the breeders all the time. Take some fucking responsibility for your progeny. You wanna' dip the stick? You pay for the oil!
You are so clueless, it boggles the mind. Broadband connectivity (wired or wireless) is essential for modern learning: for research, for educational applications perfectly customized to each student's level, for on-demand educational presentations and videos, for document creation, etc. etc. It's pretty easy to lock computers down to prevent kids from getting off task, and all schools do. It's pretty easy to lock down wi-fi so personal devices can't be used (our elementary provides the laptops the kids use). Kids study language arts at 1 grade level higher than they did in the 70s. Math is 2 grade levels higher. Computers in school are a huge part of this, and modern computers all rely on the internet for educational software. Computer labs are all monitored by teachers. Kids aren't hanging around playing CoD all day.

As for not wanting to pay for my kids, fuck you, you leech. The reason there is a modern society at all is due to public education. Put your money where your piehole is: move to a farm without electricity and plumbing and live off the land. Never use the services of a doctor, lawyer, accountant, pharmacist, dentist, vet, or any other professional. Never buy food from a store again. Never drive a car again. Never buy a computer or software again. Public education is why we have all the nice things that we do. Someone's kids provided all that, and my kids will be providing and building all of that in the future. If anything, we tax SINKs and DINKs too low since the only thing they contribute back to society is taxes. When you buy the services of any professional, you're paying for the price it costs to keep them there, not the much higher price it took to get them there. I paid for that, thank you very much. And you want to throw $10,000s more on top of it.

Further proving my argument that Cutter lacks any form of empathy and only cares about things that impact him directly.

Cutter political view flowchart:
Does it Impact Cutter - Yes: It is the single most important thing in the world
Does it Impact Cutter - No: Then it's utterly pointless and only morons care and everyone should shut up


No lie. Just look at his posts. He absolutely doesn't conform even remotely close to traditional political left/right/center. Which isn't a bad thing, but usually people tend to have their views cluster in areas, e.g., social. People that support gay marriage tend to also support abortion tend to also support feminism, etc.

Cutter? Cutter really only supports Cutter. Exclusively Cutter. The single most selfish viewpoints possible. It isn't like he doesn't care about things that don't impact him directly, he actively mocks them and anyone that supports them.

Fact 1: You pirate games
Fact 2: You feel justified in this
Fact 3: You deny being entitled
Fact 4: You deny stealing
Fact 5: You accuse others of being childish

Not to get childish, but did your parents drop you on your head when you were little? Or recently?
Repeatedly?
