I agree with Creston. It's by far the best (most fun) fps game I've played in years.

News Comments > EA: Forum Ban Equals Game Bans - Updated
126. Re: EA: Forum Ban Equals Game Bans Oct 30, 2008, 20:49 Reactor
 
Did you never told one of your friends to get lost when you were angry about something? How ridiculous would it be if you would then never again be allowed to speak to them.

Worst analogy evar.

I fully support EA's move in this case (can't believe I'm saying that) but legally I'm not sure if they can get away with what they're proposing. It'd be an interesting one to look into.

News Comments > Fallout 3 (and Far Cry 2) DRM Follow-up
36. Re: Fallout 3 Oct 29, 2008, 20:42 Reactor
 
FarCry 2's copy protection made me laugh. It has DRM'd limited installs, a key to enter, online activation, and SecuROM which means I need the DVD in the drive to play.

All it needs is a codewheel and it'll be perfect.

Typically you'd be right, but that is something the Reflexive guys have worked hard at from day one. It's more than words- they're well respected in the casual gaming scene for working openly with people.

Consumer complacency is all well and good but at what point must you stop and say "Okay, enough is enough"?

It's been said. But, the people working to boycott DRM games are in the minority, and publishers like EA know it'll always be that way. You can fight the power if you like, but EA and publishers like them can draw on a large majority to support themselves. So, while they'll listen... they'll only listen to a point.

DRM is bad (weak) solution to a difficult problem developers face. Because it's a bad solution for most of the reasons mentioned, I have no issue with people taking a stand against it. On the flipside of the same coin however, I'll be buying Far Cry 2 because DRM, despite being a weak solution, is hardly the worst thing gaming has ever seen. It'll pass in time, no doubt to be replaced by another dull-headed solution from the mind of a suit at EA.

If you're playing games to enjoy them, ignore the silly protection methods and enjoy them today.

Don't worry, Creston and I will make up when we next have a slumber party.

Funny how you keep posting here Reactor, considering how much better you are than all of us...

Yes, funny that. I am awesome, aren't I?

Actually, although the Blues whining is enough to drive someone mad (everyone mad, actually) there's nothing quite as entertaining as Blues posts when the whining is toned down.

Wow, awesome reply Creston. You must have spent the whole day working out how to whine about someone whining about people whining about games. Truly you are master of your craft.

Understand it? That post was a whole load of hooey, as if some crazy, white-haired and dribbling old man had pulled a shaky old soapbox over to preach to us all of a religion which didn't exist.

It's just a game for goodness sakes- not a religious experience. Some people will enjoy it, some won't. Get over it. However, I guess we can all rest assured the prima donna's of the gaming world will continue to enhabit Bluesnews as if their word is law for everyone who happens to pass on by. Such is life, I guess.

Roll on the next crazy old man.

I think the game is pretty darned fun. But then, I don't whine much about games.

They carefully gauged the needs of their customers and determined through a mathematical formula that on average, a user only installs one of their games 0.19385 times. They then doubled this figure because they care about the customer.

LOL

Try getting into a battle with a huge amount of guys, where you're totally outnumbered and your skill with your weapon is the only thing that'll see you through. Also, make sure you play it on the difficulty where it automatically saves. If you lose the battle you'll wind up with nothing, in the gutters. If you win, there's a ton of glory for you and your men.

That'll get you into it

Aside from the bit on page 3 which says,

"Note: copy protection on this game only allows three installations per disk."

I'm not sure why these guys don't just do what other indies are doing, and get on with the process of making something and selling it. Indie game dev is all about developing (at least at the start) with almost zero funds and time. Props to them for finishing something all those years ago, but now it's time to replace the talking with actual action.
