News Comments > Gold - Bus Driver
3. Re: No subject May 5, 2008, 09:51 Reactor
 
I know a couple of bus drivers, and neither of them would be intereted in coming home from a day of driving a bus, to playing a game which involved driving a bus... especially with "30 routes arranged into 5 tiers with increasing difficulty".

The only non-bus drivers I know that'd be interested in this game would be those who could drive the bus off a bridge, through an exploding building, or through peak hour traffic at high speed. Somehow the "non-violent" nature of this simulation rules that out.

Does anyone actually care about a hack & slash RPG in this day and age?

In short: If D3 is to D2 what SC2 seems to be to SC1, yes.

I agree with DanL. Even indie developers know you don't build games for a small market. You drop your system requirements and open the game up to a much larger market. Then, you add in some really great graphical options for those who have big rigs... not the other way around.

Creature Creator will also be available in North America for $9.99 and most European territories for 9.99...

... and in Australia it'll be $105, just to keep up with Steam.

It has a very good feature set for those kind of games.

Such as? Does it come with tools of some kind?

It sounds as though they'll give you the engine to use (which looks like a standard 2D engine) in exchange for a standard portal deal with Gamersgate.

Not exactly an awesome deal for the developer, so it seems.

Sorry The Advocate, but most of my motivation for disliking piracy has nothing at all to do with your assumptions. And yes, we have given games away. It's not such a big deal as you seem to say it would be for me, because as I said, your assumptions are incorrect.

Sure their games get pirated like all the rest as well, but they dont whine about it.

Cliffski, do you want to tell him, or should I?

Point taken on the effect of piracy on the market, but the fact it has any effect at all effects where developers go.

EDIT: Indie guy here too Thanks cliffski.

Agreement? You mean the the EULA that customers only see after they've purchased and opened software...

Who said I sell in stores? Besides, you're the guy who wrote, "I have no legal right to pirate and piracy is illegal...". Do you only know this after opening your game and reading the Eula? Of course not. My point still stands.

You can't sell a game to someone who isn't into buying your games and thats it!!! No way period. End of discussion.

Wow that is... that's... that's amazing wisdom right there! Everyone take note!

On a side note: the whole, "It's okay because we're too few and wouldn't hurt a fly." arguement is old, weak, and unconvincing in every way. Plus, the all caps DON'T make YOUR point any BETTER.

Downloading file-shared software is hardly piracy and would be incredibly difficult to prosecute in any court of law, let alone an American one.

Could you just hold this CD to the top of your head while I get out my lighter? Thanks.

Shouldn't you guys be defining your terms, before using words like 'right'? Ah, there's nothing like moral ambiguity.

Software piracy is petty, and software thieves have the world's longest list of lame excuses for doing it. Always have, always will. End of story. If I ever meet a pirate who shows me his burnt copy of something I've developed, and explains to me his reasons for pirating it, I'll reply by placing the CD on his head and setting fire to it.

You can have all the reasons in the world to justify your theft, but I've asked for the agreement to either be accepted or not. Anything beyond that is just disrespectful.

I have no problem with companies who choose not to have a demo, but offering up lame excuses like this one just make Bethesda look incompetent. If they wanted one, they should have designed the game with that in mind. If they didn't want to use their time to make one, they should have just said so.

It wouldn't be Blues without someone bagging (almost) each and every game that's announced. Here's to hoping when the game arrives it gives us all something brand new, has fully realistic plane physics, has zero in game advertising...
