I'm sure a Mirror's Edge 2 would push them into the black.
No, because Mirrors Edge 1 was commercially not that successful to have such an influence on even quarterly financials. EA made some money on that game, but not enough to match their expectations. Dead Space was surprisingly quite successful on all plattforms, therefore we have a Dead Space 2 and not a Mirrors Edge 2.

Those are the three main reasons why AC and AC2 failed to hold my interest for more than a few hours.
But they have great soundtracks from Jesper Kyd. And they do look pretty, sometimes. Isn't that enough?

AC2 PC suffered from a terrible bug where it wouldn't keep track of your save file and you could lose 10+ hours of gameplay. My copy is unplayable due to this fact.
Yes!!!! Save-Points!!! *blärghhh*

The one of the best fan-made film.
and I cannot believe they did it with $1200 budget!
They already had a proper camera and software.

But yes, when you cannot throw tons of money at every little problem, you have to get creative and really, REALLY resourceful. For example, i had a blast listening to Robert Rodriguez commentary track from the "El Mariachi"-DVD. Too much money makes lazy and stupid

How many kids do they think own cell phones? Kids, not teenagers.
Enough to join the "mobile and social games" hype.

Making games is a business, not a sport, or something you do for fun.
Yes, you could do that. But you don't have to. I can make a game just for the fun of it. Sure, it probably will be only a little flash game, but a game it is.

If you want to make money, you need to find the biggest audience.
Wrong. If you want to make money, choose your target group carefully, then make a game for this target group. If a specific target group is already served by a lot of other competitors, choose another genre, choose another target group. You WILL loose money, when you go where everyone already is.

That means casual games.
No. See above. But most people, who finance game developement, have no fuckin clue about the market. So they go where everyone already is. This means casual games. Not because they will get rich, but because investors are mostly greedy stupid fucks.

As a hardcore gamer, a game developer and a captalist pig, I have no problem with this.
No, of course not. Because you too have no fuckin clue ;-P

Not sure why anyone would choose to buy these from Impulse instead of GOG. GOG is much more flexible and offers free bonus content like soundtracks, manuals and wallpapers.
There are people, who have no idea that something like GOG.com exists.

MORONS! You are dropping PC support in favor of mobile gaming? You developers are RETARDED.
No. They're not. Probably

Often enough, they just do what their investors tell them to do and nowadays investors think that mobile and "social" gaming is teh big new shit.

Steam is easily cracked as well, in fact steam is so easy to crack that the warez scene doesn't even regard steam cracks as legit releases but rather as bullying the weak.
In fact, Valve has stopped marketing Steam as some sort of magical DRM two or three years ago. Asked about the "threat" of software piracy, they said that they spend no more thought on piracy. They know, that Steam has stopped no one, they see LOTS of money rolling in, they do not care about piracy anymore.

Because it says "Final Fantasy" on the box. And FF STILL has a good reputation.

Seriously, what is the rationale for including copy-protection that's completely ineffective?
A section in the business plan for investors called "Minimizing Risks". There are still enough stupid investors out there, who will not invest anything unless the publisher fiddles with DRM. Publisher know that DRM and copy protection is useless and does nothing to protect anything. But investors insist, that they use it so ...

Remember when EA and Take2 introduced Online-Securom? Business was bad, investors were NOT happy. So, a new copy protection method was introduced to calm down investors. Or remember when Ubisofts quarterly financial were looking grimm? A few months later Ubisoft announced their new DRM to please its investors. DRM to harm used game sales, because used game sales are considered a threat and hamring used game sales is ... yes, minimizing potential risks.

Its all show, its all for the shareholders, who still haven't learned that DRM does nothing besides generating profit for the DRM developers.

The fact that Witcher 2 is on there at all is disappointing. First because the game isn't even scheduled to be out for at least 5 months (with inevitable delays). Second, because why buy it on Steam when you can get it on GoG DRM free, with a free "extra" game to go with it?
First: Some people are still having too much money.
Second: Some people like their prison bars. Nice colors ...

Wow so let me get this straight.

You preorder Witcher 2 you from GOG you get it DRM free?
Yes and no. Yes to the DRM-free part, no to the preorder part. This is no preorder. It's only a promo page, where you can download free stuff after logging in into your GOG account. And once again, GOG.com is making fun of it's customers. Another perfect example of polish humor?

But i do like the DRM-less approach, a lot!!!

To clarify a bit, this is technically a standalone expansion to the Spellforce 2, and Spellforce 2: Dragon Storm series.
Also ... this expansion is not made by Phenomic, the original dev, but by Trine, who were responsible for the horrible, horrible Gothic 3 addon. And this addon seems to follow this "standard" ...

Golly, just can't figure out why there aren't big hate posts and media stories blanking the airwaves exclaiming "CONSOLE PIRACY!"
There were a few "DS PIRACY!" headlines in the past year as the traditional scapegoat, explaining the declining sales of Nintendos DS and DS software, because "market saturation" is an ugly word, when no DS sucessor is in sight. But right after announcing the 3DS, yes, no more "DS PIRACY!" headlines.

It sure does, but obeying the specific laws of a country isn't one of them.
I refer to the successful control of content, based on the location of the customer, ignoring the fact, that he (as in being an adult) is allowed to buy these kind of games in this location.

I am way over 18 years old, i am legally allowed to buy (!) and own (!) such games, but Valve can treat me like a child, because they can control the content, because they have no interest in building an age verification system for german customers.

International versions of Black Ops are not banned, you just cannot sell them in Germany. But i am legally allowed to import them. But Valve being Valve ... they're just too arrogant.
