The publishers are losing a lot of purchases with always on DRM.
We dont know for sure. Ubisofts 90% drop in PC sales might be a hint, but we sadly lack hard and solid data.

It is a shame that Blizzard chose to go that direction because I would have bought Diablo III. As it stands now I have tons of games to play without supporting always on DRM.
Blizzard will survive, because Diablo 3 is not some handydandy Ass Creed. Its Diablo 3. People will sell their children into slavery to play this game.

But will these games be playable in, lets say, ten years? Or twenty years from now? Can a always-on game become a classic when there is no possibility to play it after the publisher vanishes? DRM might be tolerable for selling games, but its a definitive Cultural Black Hole. When a creative work is no longer watchable, readable, viewable or playable, people will forget.

Having multiplayer be the main draw of the game such as with cd keys or something like steam accounts (or blizzard with star craft) is one great way to have a "carrot" instead of a "stick".
If a multiplayer game is popular enough, there will be in-official servers and/or LAN-emulators. Heck, even MMOs are being "pirated" through freeshards.

So as a result, IMHO, its far better to use carrot than stick, and have limited DRM such as steam. Most other measures are useless beyond screwing and annoying legitimate customers.
Of course the carrot works better than the stick when it comes to video games. Video games arent a necessity of life, there are nothing more than luxury. You cannot force someone to pay for something he doesnt need to exist. You will NOT get more revenue by trying to force people into paying. Ubisoft is actually learning this the hard way with their 90% reduction of PC sales after the introduction of Ubi-DRM.

Learn to live with "piracy", learn to make attractive games, care for your customer and dont spend ressources on people who wont give you their money anyway.

What needs to happen is bring to the PC the same level of piracy control found on consoles.
I'm with you mate. It has to happen.
There is another way. Stop releasing games on the PC. No games, no piracy! No? Still enough money to be made on the PC platform? Then just stop worrying about things you cant stop or prevent. Stop worrying about things you dont even have a proof that they are damaging your sales.

He will go to space. He should go to space. Ultima was not only him, but a group of talented and hungry and hard working guys at Origin. There is no more Origin and its former employees have moved on. This chapter is closed!

Biggest disappointment in 5 years of PC-Gaming, imo. Its worse than S2, and thats saying something
Bugs aside ... its the same game over and over again. If you have a patched Stronghold 2, there is no need for Stronghold 3. Heck, S3 even looks the same than S2. Same textures, same models, same water shaders. And paying 40-50 bucks for a slightly modified interface?

*goes back, playing Stronghold 1*

Beamer wrote on Oct 25, 2011, 09:32:
The easy response to that is that some of the best games in history are text based.
THE best game in history isn't even digital.

And yes, isometric & turn-based is a no-go for games produced by major publishers, because isometric isn't 3D and turn-based is not fast enough for the shooter crowd. Sadly, the Syndicate IP belongs to EA and not some nifty little indie dev, who doesn't care what the biggest demographic target group seems to want or not want.

I remember playing a beta years ago.
That was under Flagship Studios. When Flagship went bancrupt, Hanbit from Korea took over all assets from Flagship and released Mythos as a typical Asian MMO grinder in their market.

And Hellgate London is suppossed to be re-released some time next year, also from Hanbit. Yay ... not!

Mythos still runs in Asia, but there is no loss here. Torchlight is the game you want to play if you knew Mythos from its humble beginnings.

There's a crack already?
Yes, but it only removes the necessity to be online when the gane starts. This crack does NOT restore the misssing content when playing offline.

But i guess, someone will eventually tackle that problem.

Homeworld 2 was a disappointment?
Is it necessary to mention, that it was a disappointment FOR ME? That i didnt say that HW2 has to be a disappointment for everyone else?

I simply have an allergy against dynamic leveling, using this feature to punish a player for playing well.

Given the rapidly increasing growth of F2P games ...
And how much of them will be online in two years? F2P isn't the Big Saviour in the risky video gaming industry. And more and more gamer realize, that they spend MORE money with "Free 2 Play, But Pay 2 Win games" that playing MMOs with a fixed fee. Because you cannot make decent money just from vanity items.

After Homeworld 2, I don't know that I want Relic to make a Homeworld 3.
True. Homeworld 2 was such a dissapointment. Especially this stupid dynamic-leveling crap which punishes the player, who played so well that he has a surplus of ressources and/or ships at the end of a mission. I never finished this game, never picked it up again in years following. But Homeworld 1 and the addon? Played every last bit of them a dozen times over and over and over.

Huh? ME2 was the weakest port they've done in a long time. They barely redesigned anything for the port, the text was huge and there was a lot of redundant clicking in the menus. They UI remained mostly unchanged from the console versions.
KotoR 1 & 2 anyone? Horrible, horrible inventory management and user interface, straight from the console without any improvements or adjustments to the possibilities of mouse/keyboard. Excellent games, but lazy ports they were.

Allow other players to play as the teammates you take with you on missions.
He does not want that. He does not want any multiplayer in ME 3 at all. He was very clear of that.
