If DRM went away forever, would there be more piracy or less?
More and more studies suggest that DRM has no effect on copies at all. DRM does not reduce or boost the numbers, no DRM doesn't reduce or boost the numbers. There will be ALWAYS software piracy and there will be ALWAYS potential and actual customers who pay voluntarily because they want to. And more and more studies suggest, that the availability of copies has no effect on sales at all. Effect on sales have things like: Convenience of the buying experience, regional locks, different regional release dates, different content based on the region. People will pirate your content if you as a company cant offer a borderless, convenient way to buy your content. But if you do that, people will buy. In droves.

The trick is simple: Just ignore the people who dont want to give you money at all, they will not go away, they will always get what they want. Learn to live with copies. Concentrate instead on making a good offer to the people who might want to give you money.

To all who bash Peter and his pioneer works, FU.
No one bashes Molyneux for the classics. We bash Molyneux for the shit he released since "Black & White" including said overhyped tamagotchi simulator.

Hopefully with Peter going indie we can now see games in the Populous, Powermonger, Dungeon Keeper or Syndicate caliber coming up again.
Why should he do this? Peter will keep on hyping. It's all that's left of a once great designer who had the luck to work with a bunch af really talented people.

Strictly speaking, it wasn't Molyneux all alone. It was the mixture, the people at Bullfrog who made all these classics possible.

Fanboys really are the worst thing possible to happen to consumer rights...
This whole industry is centered around exploiting emotional addicted gamers. What do you expect?

If they just remake SC4 with better graphics and more content/features, it'll be great. Unfortunately, I'm not very confident they won't find a way to screw it up.
They already found a way: It's called DLC. SC5 will be THE perfect DLC trap for addicted gamers with low or none self control.

Do the industry a favor and DO NOT support this crap.
The "professional" devs they hired, forgot to put the menu for video options in the game. The "professional" devs they hired, just made the same boring crap like in the last two addons. Small maps, lots of unimaginative monster spwaning, no regard for map style or atmosphere, just *spawn**spawn**spawn**spawn**spawn* until you reached the end of map 5 and the end of this game. Horrible!

I found simcity 4 to be extremely difficult. There seemed to be way too much micromanagement and I could never get a thriving city going. I thought simcity 3000 was the better game.
Still playing SimCity 2000. IMHO the best combination of accessibility and gameplay depth. I never got warm with SC3000 and SC4 i totally passed. Too much work, too less a game i want to play in my leisure time.

But but! if the 1% just pays a "little" more when they already pay the majority of taxes to begin with the US's debt will magically go away!
It will help to stop its growth! It will strengthen the US single market, reducing the amount of cash flowing out of the country by financing better infrastructure, better schooling and education, by strengthening the majority of the middle class, not only a few selected rich.

While we keep handing welfare out to the bottom that doesn't pay taxes at all while continuing to spit out hellspawn for more moniesz!!
From what should these people pay taxes? From their welfare? Or from all those jobs that are created elsewhere in the world?

/liberal logic or more accurately lack of logic.
Decades ago, the GOP seemed to understand basic principles of economic systems. Nowadays, they just shout that everyone else is a looney, hoping to cover up the abysmal lack of knowledge how to run an economy in a world, where things have changed drastically.

IF they really were Doom4 shots, then yeah I'd be kind of worried as well, since they don't have any Doom feel to them whatsoever...
What should a screenshot have to look like to arouse any "Doom feeling"?

Those suburban maps could fit in the early city/factory maps of Doom 2, the more hellish maps, well, they do fit as well to a remake or reboot of Doom 2.

I'm well aware of that. But what else are we supposed to go on?
Maybe we could simply, you know, say nothing? Because there isn't much to talk about?

If the final game bares any relation whatsoever to the images here ...
You DO know, that Doom 4 (if this are real screens) is deep in an early alpha stage, that we probably see only map mockups for testing art design guide lines? "We suggest this map has this suburban style. And then, more hell influence can look like this."

There is a reason publishers and devs fear such leaks. Too many people confuse these early samples with an actual, ready to be released game.

Furthermore, sales dropped off the planet after less than 2 weeks. They know they screwed up. Apologists can defend Rage all they want, but we have a disaster here bigger than Invisible War.
According to VGChartz, Rage was sold about 2.5 mio unit across all three major plattforms, only retail, no digital sales.

Which isn't bad. Sure, no CoD-like ultra success, but not bad at all.

Are you intentionally misspelling "the" because you're referencing ten years ago and intentionally looking stupid in such ways was cool back then? You should probably stop, it no longer looks ironic or interesting.
I couldnt care less what you think is cool or interesting. I dont post to get your approval.

*Sigh*

I'd pay full price for a single player 20 hour mech campaign. Looks like I won't get it from Hawken.
No, you wont. F2P and "downloadable content" and "virtual goods" are teh new shit. Ten years ago, Hawken might have become funding for a full blown MMO, because that was "teh new shit" then.

If you want a pure single player mech game, wait for a crowdfunding project which will cover that. If your game is financed through "traditional" investors, you loose all control, you have to make the game the investors want. And investors want always teh new shit, because thats "good".

Not right now, but later they will, after ME3 is not attractive anymore to lure potential customers to Origin.

This is one of those games that I was originally excited about, but the more I learned about it the less interested I became. I'm at the point now where I feel like I probably won't bother with this.
Reminds of Dragon Age, which was TEH GAME for me until EA announced Securom DRM, backed down from it, introduced online DLC and EA accounts, released trailers with boring high school rock music and tons of pixel blood and nippels and ... i simply forgot this game until i stumbled upon it during a Steam sale.

Same happened to Diablo 3. One day i will probably play it, maybe i will even pay a low budget price, but it's just a game, not THE GAME anymore.

Its good to free oneself from the shackles of the "Must Have" marketing hype
