Go solvent, then blow all your money on lawyers. That's the new bankruptcy paradigm. It's the corporate version of taking out everything with you before you die.

Stardock's Gamer's Bill of Rights

  • Gamers shall have the right to return games that donít work with their computers for a full refund.
  • Gamers shall have the right to demand that games be released in a finished state.
  • Gamers shall have the right to expect meaningful updates after a gameís release.
  • Gamers shall have the right to demand that download managers and updaters not force themselves to run or be forced to load in order to play a game.
  • Gamers shall have the right to expect that the minimum requirements for a game will mean that the game will play adequately on that computer.
  • Gamers shall have the right to expect that games wonít install hidden drivers or other potentially harmful software without their consent.
  • Gamers shall have the right to re-download the latest versions of the games they own at any time.
  • Gamers shall have the right to not be treated as potential criminals by developers or publishers.
  • Gamers shall have the right to demand that a single-player game not force them to be connected to the Internet every time they wish to play.
  • Gamers shall have the right that games which are installed to the hard drive shall not require a CD/DVD to remain in the drive to play.

  • Brad comments, "As an industry, we need to begin setting some basic, common sense standards that reward PC gamers for purchasing our games. The console market effectively already has something like this in that its games have to go through the platform maker such as Nintendo, Microsoft, or Sony. But on the PC, publishers can release games that are scarcely completed, poorly supported, and full of intrusive copy protection and then be stuck on it." (source)

    I remember playing Ultima VII. Everything was in that runic language even locations on the cloth map. Could this be an old school RPG revival?

    Every example he mentions involves methods of getting additional money from the player over time, and nothing to do with gameplay innovation.

    That would be because by "innovation" he isn't referring to game play, he is referring to profit generating.

    Ding-ding-ding!

    When I read shit like this it sounds like this in my head: "we're turning gaming into something you won't like anymore, woot!"

    Gabe reminds me of Al the Toy Collector from Toy Story 2.

    Proof positive that our government hires lowest-denominator people who have no idea what they're doing giving out patents. Another example of how our government is completely asleep at the wheel and filled with incompetent bureaucracy.

    There was a time when the patent office denied claims because they said that life cannot be patented. Short of patenting humans beings the Office now allows the patenting of life in various forms including, but not limited to, medicines, DNA, and even seeds. Yes seed. Wiki: Monsanto.

    It can't be a Call of Duty game - read again and you'll notice that they say they're working on a realistic military shooter.

    EA could cover their legal expenses in exchange for a higher percentage of the profits. I don't know what EA's share will be but for the sake of this discussion let's say 35%. Zampella and West could agree to increase EA's share to 40%. That would help offset some of their expenses.
