News Comments > Far Cry 4 Piracy Perspective

Silent Hunter 4 was an abomination. But it was 2007.

But Silent Hunter 4 was one thing 8 years ago. It isn't like every game since has kept doing it.

Every Silent Hunter game in the series since IV has been a total anal rape without lube since 2007. Silent Hunter V still isn't what any reasonable person would call "useable". The sad part is that due to the DRM that Ubisoft crippled it with, it never will be.

Lose your connection? Game crashes. Ubisoft's other games suck down a huge amount of bandwidth from Ubisoft's servers? Game crashes. Oh, you wanted to save your game but Ubisoft's servers don't respond in time? Game crashes, setting you back possibly hours of careful planning, deployment and sunk tonnage.

Ubi's games aren't that interesting to me anymore because of both their hostile actions as a company towards their customers and their yearly title churn. The last game I truly enjoyed from Ubi was Black Flag due to the piracy theme. If they released a game that was solely piratically based without the Assassin's Creed name attached, I'd buy the shit out of it. I think, however, that I am in the minority on that.

This uses Denuvo, so no thanks. I don't care how good it looks. Steam/Origin is DRM enough. There's no goddamned need to decrypt, read/write in to memory and then re-encrypt on the fly. This a game, not a fucking NSA database.

FTA:

"I think virtual desktops are very useful, but then thatís because Iíve been using them for quite a long time. Apple introduced Spaces on Macs with Mac OS Leopard back in 2007, and Linux has had virtual desktops ever since KDE 1.0, rolled out in 1998. Come to think of it, I seem to recall virtual desktops on OS/2 Warp, circa 1996, and on the Amiga 1000 in, believe or not, 1985."

This had me cackling because someone here at work was crowing about how awesome VDs were on Windows 10 and I told them I'd been using that "feature" in Linux for more than decade. The only thing I don't get is why the arbitrary limit of 4? Is that all that Windows can handle?

...steam has single handedly ruined things like level editing and game modification...

Not quite:

Rome II: Total War has over 2000 mods available for it.
Banished has over 400.
Skyrim has close to 30000(!)mods available for it.

If anything, portals like Steam have made it easier to create mods (as developers can now release the toolkits in one location), easier to disseminate mods to a wider range of players and allowed for easier collaboration on mods that have become games in their own right.

I grew up playing PC games starting in the late 80s, through the 90s and all the way through to today. You either have a deep personal grudge against Steam for whatever reason, are looking back in to history with rose colored glasses (WAD files were gigantic pains in the ass to work with until someone reverse engineered them and released the WAD unpacker) or you're just full of shit.


As for ED, meh, I'm not a backer and I didn't trust Braben to deliver on anything that was promised.

You used to be able to skip them via using the menu or top menu buttons but not anymore.

Rips, man. Rips. Put the disc on a shelf after ripping it and never be bothered by physical media or fluff crap ever again.

This from the same company that completely fucked over their backers of Spacebase DF-9 and even the backers of Broken Age aren't overly thrilled? That company?

What's next, Justin, complaining that user reviews on Steam are also "all but obsolete" because they expose just how fucking shady your company's practices and ethics are?

You know what we should do?

Combine the Star Citizen and Gamergate threads in to one.

I want to watch the Internet burn.

WW1 is a criminally under-studied period in gaming. Glad to see more studios approaching it now.

I feel the same way about the Vietnam era. The survivors of that shitfest are still living, as they are the parents of many of us, and would be a great resource to mine to get the feeling of the conflict right.

News Comments > Transistor Released for OS X & Linux
6. Re: Transistor Released for OS X & Linux Nov 9, 2014, 23:09 Burrito of Peace
 
Given how Microsoft is absolutely insistent on shoving a bad UI down the throats of everyone who buys a new PC in an effort to force a consistent ecology across multiple areas they are utterly failing in, Linux became a very attractive experience to me.

I'd been using CentOS for years as a server OS as it beat the pants off of everything that Microsoft offered with the exception of AD and, maybe, Exchange. However, I'd not really considered Linux as a viable desktop OS until...Linux Mint.

I've been using it as my main OS now for close to 4 years and I will never, ever go back. The ability to do exactly what I want, exactly how I want, without compromise, is mind blowing once you get settled in to the idea that your OS can behave in any way you see fit and have as much, or as little, as you want. All for free.

Question for those of you with the OR:

How does it work with glasses? I'm not ashamed to admit that, in my old age, my eyesight has gotten worse and my lenses have gotten a bit thicker. If it's like other VR headgear that I've tried, they mash my glasses in to my face which isn't just uncomfortable but gives me a raging headache in a short amount of time.
