News Comments > Witcher 2 AU Censorship
8. Re: Witcher 2 AU Censorship May 6, 2011, 06:16 Kajetan
 
So, citizens of Australia still can buy the "original" version from Gog.com? Or do the censor want to block the website for australian providers, forcing their customers to learn about proxy servers and P2P?
Who knows? But all is well in the paranoid head of stupid "child protection" maggots.

Judging by Sony's response I'd say the thieves had this data long before they took PSN down.
Yupp, this might be the case. And the breach has nothing to do with the
BIOS of the PS3, but was probably executed with established methods like a little bit research about responsible IT employees, some social engineering, maybe a malware injection with a facebook link to click on and voila! ... the door is wide open.

I'm more frightened by the people who think this sort of hacker action is justified. Remind me never to work with any of you.
Remind me to explain "improper generalization" to you ...

ID Thieves good enough to pull this off would be smart enough to do it quietly.
They did. And Sony gave them PLENTY of time (a whole effin week) to use all credit card information they got, until the public was informed about the security breach and what info was leaked. A whole week and Sony had to rely on external IT companies to research the incident.

Glad to hear it confirmed as I thought, Witcher was developed entirely for PC and if they do console at all its going to be a "port" from PC to console.
So the game won't have been consolized.
Quick-time-events when fighting boss monsters, controller friendly and big UI elements, selection wheel, most press previews were played with an controller ... sure, this game was developed entirely for the PC!

Come on, after following the developement of TW2 it soon was obvious that this was going to be a multiplattform title.

I like the downloader now with 'Setup', 'Core files' and then 'More to download but you can play the game while it loads in the background' option.
Yes, that quite convenient. But the new streaming client "streams" game data already on harddrive very slowly. When i login to a character, i have to wait up to nearly a minute, until all gameworld content is loaded. First i see a very primitive mesh version of the world, then comes the UI in pieces, and then slowly the rest of the more detailed textures.

The old client had nearly zero loading time on the same hardware and OS.

I wish they'd put their money into something of value, like good script writers, or possibly QUALITY ASSURANCE TESTERS.
Once again, if a game is shipped with bugs, its NOT the fault of QA or lacking QA. The publisher ships the game knowingly with bugs, because fixing them would cost too much or would harm distribution deals with a set release dates.

Zynga probably makes a lot more money than EA already, doesn't it? Last I checked EA lost money every quarter.
They are not making more money than EA. They are only the darling of the stock market, because "social gaming" is teh new shit for solvent investors. Until another bubble bursts and the money flows elsewhere. Like ten years ago, little companies who made(or want to make) MMOs were blown up with venture capital, until they went bancrupt a few years later.

And BTW, no offline play, you have to be connected all the time to the net, since the game stores items and xp and data server-side.
This is one the games people will soon forget, because nobody can play this game offline, when EA shuts down the servers in two or three years. Cloud gaming, The Dark Ages of The Video Game History!

There is a reason, why these kind of games never become classics, even if the gameplay itself might be good enough. Companies are not interested in cultural and/or social advances, only in short term profit. And with the need to be online all the time, companies are shutting down older games, so that the masses will move on and buy new games.

Next time Valve, try ponying up something worth the time investment. Getting kiddies living in basements to invest dozens of hours of their meaningless lives into your ludicrous ARG isn't an accomplishment, it's just a cynical abuse of the chronically stupid.
Why? Easy prey and full wallets ...

And Microsoft is never going to put forth the kind of effort needed to really compete with Valve in the PC arena.
Which is not a good thing, because only a solid competition will prevent Valve from becoming a pain in the ass. Which will most likely happen, because too much success does that to people and companies. The unnecessary consolification of Portal 2 is one of the first signs.

I don't get why it's still enabled on this title ...
Perhaps because the game and its DLC still sells good enough. When sales drop low enough, they probably might remove the DRM to get all those people, who want the game but not the DRM.

What's annoying is most of the people complaining that it didn't unlock sooner admittedly didn't buy the potato sack and didn't participate in the ARG.
Do you know, that your brain is captured by the Valve Marketing Department? Probably not ...

I've heard that if everyone buy's 3 copies of all the Starcraft 2 games and Diablo 3 that the release will be earlier!
Paying for three WoW accounts for a whole year will also help.

Diablo 2 was not that good.
It was. It was that good, that it took years and several dozen attempts from other devs to finally beat the king of the genre. Which seems strange, because Diablo 2 is a very simple game, the whole ARPG genre isn't very complex. Best example of "Easy to learn, hard to master"!

But where's the harm?
It's misleading advertisment. People are tricked into buying games without having any valid influence on the release date. No, people wont die from buying those games, but people, who think they can actually determine the release date were tricked into buying these games.

And thats the "harm". A moral harm. A shady marketing deal, where lying to people seems to be somewhat ok. No, it's not.
