1. Re: SOPA Isnít the Solution, But Can We At Least Agree Thereís A Problem Jan 11, 2012, 09:50 Kajetan
 
No. Because there is no actual problem. Only a percieved problem.

"If they do nothing, they are essentially ceding a good portion of their sales to pirates who have no intention of ever paying them a dime."

There is no proof that DRM increases sales, there is no proof that the lack of DRM decreases sales. For DECADES, since the early days of tapes and video cassettes the fear of loosing sales is based on assumptions, not actual, proven facts.

Do we know for certain that Rage tanked sales-wise?
http://gamrreview.vgchartz.com/sales-data/25458/rage/

Ten weeks after release, 1.15 mio. 360, 0.8 mio. PS3, 0.2 mio PC (only retail, no Steam and other digital numbers), perhaps 3 Mio. units all together?

Not a failure, but nothing to write home about for a multiplattform release either. I guess Beth was expecting MUCH more.

You are all forgetting one important thing, there are more people unemployed now and that sucks.
These people are not unemployed. They are given the chance to get more lucrative und fulfilling jobs, because at id Software they care SO MUCH for their employees that these people are set free that they can pursue higher goals.

We love you, we really do!!!

Simple solution. Do not buy it.
That's pretty much my solution nowadays.
Heh. Mine too
I used to buy CEs on a regular basis (i still adore this mighty and heavy black brick named "Warcraft 3 CE"), but lost interest after digital items became more and more the standard ingredient of a CE. An ingredient i can torrent for free a few days later after the release. How "special" is that shit?

I'm honestly getting tired of the fact that collector's editions for every game now always involve putting statues in the box. No matter how much I'd like the other stuff given in various games CEs, I just don't want the junk cluttering up my house.
Simple solution. Do not buy it.

I prefer this stuff over any of these useless digital "extra items", which are anything but special (a few days after the game release anyone can download them) and they cannot be owned (!), espcially when they are "collectors items" in an MMO, connected to an account.

There's an entire generation that cannot devise it's own humor and instead relies on pictures of cats, random gifs and howling "cheater".
You are getting old and bitter. May be it's a good idea for you to retire from the internet.

Judging by the buzzwords in that listing it's probably a little game for xbox live avatars that you can control with your hands and feet.

Which version should reviewers review? The shipping version or after some patches?
Sad thing is, even with hundreds of pachtes this game is still a cheap ripoff to lure the uninformed gamer into buying a "Flatout" racing game.

The point again is that this was a design problem that should be addressed as such.
It should, but it can't.

Blizzard has done this in the past in WoW (remember the guy who discovered a freaky but legit way to reach a closed area?), Bioware does it now, other devs have done it. These companies are not able to admit mistakes because their company culture thrives on blaming others for mistakes.

You think, you can actually "achieve" something? You waste time playing video games while having some fun. But you do NOT achieve anything.

This has always been a tough argument, and I am kind of surprised by the lack of support here, where so many love the indies.
I love indies for their fresh approach to gaming genres and gameplay mechanics.

I do NOT wish that they behave like big corporations, locking all up, hiding from competition behind legal barriers and preventing evolution and progress by "patenting" the shit out of everything.

Just look at Origin. It came from nowhere and is now a player in the industry.
Hilarious!
Would anyone be using that POS if not for BF3?!?!
Remember when everyone said that Steam will be failure, because the people are using it only to play Counterstrike or HL2?

If Origin will offer a decent enough buying experience, a wider variety of games, it will stay.

Oh no, they HAVE an age check.
Sadly, this isn't an age check sufficent to german law. Yes, i know that Valve is a US company and yes, i know that my government is a bunch of derranged hypocrits ... but its annoying that i am treated like a child because Valve goes the easy way. Gabe, i have MONEY that i can and WILL spend on Steam if you let me?

Dead Island at 50% on Steam is worth getting for anyone who hasn't.
Ahh, thank you, mein Herr! That is probably the reason why there's no "Deal of the Day" entry. Dead Island is indexed for german minors and therefore Valve blocks all german IPs because they CANNOT BE BOTHERED TO IMPLEMENT AN AGE CHECK!

*sigh*

I downloaded TW2 right after the release to check it out. I bought TW2 during the latest sale from GOG.com.

What am i? An evil thief? A valid, legit customer?

No, CD project, you cant be sure at all. You cant even be sure, that the IP is connected to the correct user as several cases over the last years showed. You think that the laywers and their IP research companies do make no errors? Do you think that they make sure, that the "right" users are blackmailed into paying high and unproportional sums? CD Project, you're teaming up with greedy bullies who exploit legal loopholes. Wise up!

Some could be customers, such as Witcher 1. Probably a very small minority, but I have no doubt a few such exist.
Yeah, just define all downloader as freeloaders. Ignore the fact that many poetential customers use filesharing to get a look at the game before buying especially when theres no demo ...

The only ones profiting from this move are the lawyers. CD Project will loose already paying customers (like me), they will loose potential customers, they will gain not MORE customers in the short and long run with this strategy.
