News Comments > Kotick: Audience "Clamoring" for Subscription CoD

Bwahahahahahaha!!!

I'd laugh more if it wasn't for the fact that this is coming, and those that paid $15 for 3 new maps and 2 recycled ones will sign up on the first day. And because of them, the rest of us will keep losing features on our games.

Pathethic.

Damn

Quake Wars was fantastic, but too complicated for the average Joe.

What exactly does Steamworks for PS3 mean? What does it do?

It shits all over the hopes of everybody thinking that the surprise was something different. ANYTHING but this.

So, just a BC2 mod. No LAN and no downloadable servers.

Great. One less game to look forward to.

Oh, so they're going to limit how many replays you can have like they're doing with the maps?. And does this mean that they're also going to control your replays and what you do with them?.

Greedy, greedy Blizzard, you want everything. And you ain't getting anything from me.

News Comments > Rockstar: No Current PC Red Dead Redemption Plans

GTA4 for the PC was a disastrous port, lacking many PC features, really slow in big machines tens of times more powerful than a 360, and all of it worsened by the sheer amount of shit that you needed running to "play" the game: Social Club, SecuROM, Games for Windows Live, can't even remember what more.

When Red Dead Redemption for PC is released next year, I for one will not be buying it.

I know there are a ton of people who claim they pirate because they cant afford the games, yet the same kdis always seem to have PC's that can run Crysis at max settings, and have a mobile phone that costs more than my car.

Those are the cheap bastards I was talking about

Vote with your wallet, it is the only effective option.

this is, in effect the problem. Pirates are effectively voting with their wallet, by not opening it. Every time they pirate a game imnstead of buying it, they send a market message that says "this game sucked, no more like this".
This is why pirates complain that all modern games suck. They actively killed off the style of games they liked, by not buying them, so all they can do now is pirate games they don't like.
Simple economics.

I don't think that's it, Cliffski. That would assume that pirates used to buy games. Usually, when people who buy games stop buying them, due to DRM or whatever, they don't start pirating. At most, they buy and then get the crack.

On the other hand, people that pirate due to lack of money (as opposed to cheap bastards) and get a job, usually start buying games. So, pirates really are never taken into account when counting "non buyers" because they never were buyers in the first place.

All of this, of course, taken out of my ass and from what I see in my circle of friends.

It's not like pirates have no taste and will only pirate the bad stuff while buying the good...

One of the most downloaded games of last year was Modern Warfare 2. In 2008 the winner was Spore. Pirates clearly have no taste.

Ok, yeah, some of them probably did it out of spite.

OMG another company wanting to make us pay for a game. This nimrod has not figured out that the PC platform has only free games? We ain't paying for shit.

Perhaps you aren't. A lot of us are.

[VG]Reagle wrote on May 30, 2010, 18:01:
BTW anyone know when RDR is coming to the PC?

Usually it takes a year. Sometimes more (see Bully). Depends on how much Sony and/or Microsoft paid.

It's clear to me Ubisoft is completely out of their minds. I don't think anything we say or do will dissuade then from CIC DRM. May I offer an compromise? Buy the game but install the pirated version. Would that be okay?

No. You're still validating their DRM. Don't buy the game and don't pirate it. That should be our answer.

Sadly, it's useless. Almost a million people (I believe) bought the PC version of MW2, despite the big cuts, IWNet and everything, and the MW2 Boycott group of Steam was full of people playing MW2 on release day, so I guess there's nothing really we can't do.

You don't make a better game to reduce piracy, you make a better game to increase sales.

Great point. Any developer that is thinking of piracy when making the game will probably crash and burn. Or at the very least will incense the fans (see IWNet).

It's bad enough already that the publishers can't keep their dirty DRM'd hands away from the game.

Wow. And here I thought that Pachter couldn't say anything already that would make me have a worse opinion of him. I stand corrected.

I still wonder why anyone would give this idiot minutes.

Once again Blizzard shows that they've got the finger on the gamers' pulse. What will be the next thing we want (and had in StarCraft 1) that they're going to remove?. Any bets?.

Are Rob Pardo and Frank Pearce in some kind of Internet Biggest Douche competition with Bobby Kotick and Mark Zuckerberg?
