Here are all the things it doesn't do...

[...]

Here are another couple of things it doesn't do:

- It doesn't uninstall completely, something that seems to be inherent to any software POS with the ShittyROM label on top.

- It doesn't let you activate (i.e., play) your game if you dared to criticize their game in their forums using VERY STRONG AND OFFENSIVE words, like devil the D word.

And that last one was no accident. They spoke about that already one year ago.

EA and Bioware are the ones that can shove it up their blowhole here.

Once again, the people on top show they have no fucking idea about the industry.

What are you supposed to do?. If your DRM is useless, how about taking it out to avoid at least inconveniencing customers, you idiots?.

The actions of a few are in fact causing inconvenience to others. And those few are the suits at the distributors who haven't played a game in their fucking life.

DRM: SecuROM is SecuROM is SecuROM and is, BTW, a stinking piece of shit. Even if you only use part of it.

Ban: BULL-SHIT. This is EA in damage control mode. AGAIN. Look here: EA Forum Ban Will Now Mean EA Game Ban. Yeah, they retracted it quickly, but is clear now that the functionality was in place.

So, no games from EA and no games from Acti. And a lot of money to give to the indies.

"SecuROM Sony Release Control" is still SecuROM, and after seeing first hand how inept those guys are, and how difficult it is to get their trash out of your hard drive once it's installed (and they're mighty proud of THAT, by the way), I'm not letting their shit into my computer ever again.

After seeing the reviews (the user reviews, not the paid reviews, mind you), I really don't care that much for Dragon Age 2. I do care for the fall of yet another big name due to a goddamned publisher trying to force consolized shit down everyone's throats.

Congrats on your performance in the worst publisher race, EA. Keep going like this and you'll catch Acti really soon.

DA2 in metacritic:

16 press reviews: 8.4
1125 (!!!) user reviews: 3.9

Nobody has problems releasing games for PC... except if your game is a POS with an offensive DRM on top.

Edit: BTW, PS3 and 360 numbers are very similar. Could be because of those evil PC gamers with a grudge, though.

Yep. The DLC is not really worth it. The game really is.

This guy and Matt Ployhar would probably be excellent friends. Masters of bullshit.

Unangst, you and your GFWL shit, AoE travesty and "oh, we love the PC so much" BS can go fuck yourselves.

17 years of Blizzard. 3 years of Activision-Blizzard.

The last 3 weren't up to par. The next 20 probably won't, either.

Both Martin and Jordan would (have) benefited GREATLY from an editor that would have said "Look, it's a good story, but how about you cut half a million words, mkay?"

So true. I haven't even touched the last WoT book, which if I remember correctly is now being converted into three books being written by a different author who spoke with Jordan and got his notes before he died.

As for Fire and Ice, I'm doubting whether to wait, since this book took 5 fucking years and there are still, what, 3 books left apart from this one?. It'll be 20 years before he finishes (assuming he does). I can read them all then.

As for the wikipedia, the fact that Blue's is not in there, and that a stupid editor with a grudge can delete one of gaming's most important websites of all time shows how irrelevant it's becoming. Next time they ask me to contribute, they're going to be waiting a long time for my dough.

LAN play! And true dedis, I'm guessing.

Damn, I want to support this, but I don't want to support THQ's idiotic $10 pass. What to do?

Oh, well, I'll have to swallow my pride and buy it. There are already enough Infinity Wards, Treyarchs and DICEs out there not doing their jobs to allow Kaos to go the same way.

Wow. Just when I thought Microsoft couldn't rape this franchise any more, they go and pass it to Chris Taylor's dirty hands.

This is no Age of Empires, Microsoft.

Isn't it the douchebags at Infinity Ward/Activision we can thank for starting the trend of PC games having the same price tag as consoles? For years there was a $10.00 difference between the two until some greedy jackass decided to start the trend of charging the same price. Correct me if I am wrong, but didn't it all start with Modern Warfare 2???

Nope. It started with the idiots that bought MW2 for $60, a game without dedicated servers, LAN support, modding, mapping and many, many other things. And it wasn't even a good follow-up to the great MW.

Edit: ninja'd!

Better? How the hell is this better? You still fucking have to have a connection EVERY TIME YOU START! Anyone who thinks otherwise are people that let this kind of thing go and stop protesting it. Developers and publishers think its OK. It isn't.

I am thankful that this info is out. More money in my pocket.

It IS better. It is still NOT ENOUGH.

Also, they only talk about single player, but I won't buy this until they confirm offline LAN multiplayer. Yep, that means 99.9% I'm not buying.

People keep bringing this up but never pay attention to the reason: the 360 version will still sell well. The PC version's sales will still pale in comparison. It's not about piracy it's about sales. When PC versions sell poorly AND have tons of piracy then it's a deal. It's a story. When Xbox versions have tons of piracy but still sell amazingly well it's a footnote, the game is a success.

Define "sell poorly". The PC is not a 360, in which you can box a piece of Kotick's shit, put Call of Duty in the front, and sell 10 million units in a couple of weeks.

PC gamers watch more what they buy and for how much. PC gamers have Steam (for example) and know that the price will drop in 1-2 years tops. You can't expect PC gamers to buy your game in droves when 1) You're giving them a poor port, 2) They already have lots of great games to buy for $10 and 3) You are calling them thieves.

Whenever I hear a developer cry about piracy, I cringe. Great games sell splendidly. Developers that don't mistreat their customers are more supported. If you game has 90% piracy in countries where they can't (and that's CAN NOT, not WILL NOT) buy your game, or your game isn't simply for sale, and you make the remaining 10% pay for it, be it DRM, removing features (true dedis, LAN, etc) or not releasing DLC that the consoles get, then it's your fucking fault that you will sell less of your next game AND (and I don't condone this) cause more piracy.

I have zero respect for developers like Crytek that release a boring tech demo, sell A LOT for a game that didn't work on 70-80% of machines at the time, and then cry that they would have sold 20 million games if not for PC piracy. Yeah, right.

So xbox is not as pirated, percent wise, as PC. So what?. In the end, if you look at price and numbers, and if you apply the distributor's reasoning saying that a pirated sale is a lost sale, they lose A LOT more to console piracy than they do to PC piracy.

Where's the outcry?. Why are they not calling console gamers thieves?. Why not more DRM, less features and more shitting on console gamers?. They should start putting a lot of those in the PS3 now, should they?.

As for preparation, xbox piracy requires less preparation than PC: go to a store, ask them to put a modchip (legal, BTW, in several countries), download ISOs, burn ISOs, play. I think you can even play from USB disks, so you don't even need the DVDs.

So, again, console piracy is as easy as PC piracy, and the "calculated" losses are WAY bigger. Where's the fucking outcry?. Where are the insults to the console gamers?.

Well, at least Microsoft is coherent with what they're doing. It's the rest of them idiots fucking hard the PC that I can't understand. Why be in something like the PCGA?. Granted, it does nothing showing off to the gallery, but still... why?.
