News Comments > THQ Director Blames Piracy for Iron Lore Closure
70. Re: piracy apologists Mar 4, 2008, 09:05 Paketep
 
Read. Nobody is justifying piracy. We are saying why we are NOT BUYING from some of them anymore. Their fault.

And PC gaming has been dying for more than 20 years. I'm still playing.

You know what hurts sales?. Developers making really stupid comments!.

Right now, I have no desire to buy anything at all from CliffyB, Chris Taylor, Peter Molyneux or THQ. You know why?. Less than stellar games, with stupid & useless DRM in them. Plus, they dare blame us for their loss of sales.

UT3: more of the same. Consolized.
Supreme Commander: nowhere near Total Annihilation.
Fable: meh.
Titan Quest & expansion: buggy (yeah, without being cracked!), pretty Diablo clone, but nothing special.

Sins of a Solar Empire, on the other hand: great game, great support, great price, no DRM. Sure buy for me.

THQ had it right with Company of Heroes, but OppFront's protection has made me decide not to buy any more games from them.

And they only have themselves to blame. So stop crying, start making better games, release with less bugs, don't give us a f***ing port from the consoles and drop the prices a bit. We'll come running. If you treat us like thieves and give us a bad experience, we won't buy from you. Don't blame piracy.

Oh, and read this:

Stupid stupid stupid protection. When will they learn?.

There was a crack from the first day for the 1.0, and there is already a crack for 1.01. Why do they continue f***ing their customers with useless measures?

What really killed the game:

- It's boring
- It's ugly
- It's buggy
- Doesn't have LAN

and, more importantly

- It's a POS

It breaks my heart, since I've bought everything Epic has done (even the shareware games!), but I have to agree with #2:

GoW PC -> Totally broken port of a meh game

UT3 -> Better done, but it's more of the same, has too much emphasis on consoles, it is dumbed down and the horrible UI makes me want to go back to UT2004

CliffyB's stupid comments the other day seem like the final nail in Epic's coffin

There was never protection on the first game...

Exactly!. And how much did it sell?. Why the protection now, then?

Bullshit, you only have to do this if you don't have the CD in the drive. Bitch all you want, but THQ and Relic have bent over backwards not to hurt the paying customer with anti piracy measures. You don't need to disable your network either.

And why should I have to have the CD in the drive?. Why do I have to keep close the CDs from every game I own so I can play them, when anyone can just download an .exe from some website and jump over the copy protection?. This is 2007, I think "CD in the drive" protections should have been abolished by now.

And why do I have to have a net connection if I don't want to have a CD on my drive?. Why do I have to login to Relic to play single player?.

Sorry, man, Relic did it wonderfully with the CoH vanilla, but this time, they dropped the ball.

And let's not forget how shaky the net code is. Sometimes I can't even play with some friends over LAN!. And the guides at the Relic forums say things like "don't set your router as your DNS". My god, how is the net code programmed if that breaks the game?.

CoH's net code was bad, but OF's is even worse!.

Plus, some time has passed since the release. Couldn't they drop the stupid protection now like they did with the original? (best move I've seen in years, and they f*cked it up with all this log in online crap). I can assure you... the pirates are playing and they don't mind your pity protection. We, your customers, do!

Heh, just the fact that the patch is 0.x is yet another recognition that they've been selling a beta.

Is that a recognition that the game should have stayed in beta for another 6 months?. Well, in true beta, for betatesters, not for customers as it is now.

I'm Spanish, and I'm ashamed of the movie, the game, and the fact that they had the balls to try and sell it outside Spain.

Avoid it like the shit it is.

Rootkit or not, it's StarForce just the same, and I will not give money to Nadeo if part of it is going to those b*st*rds.

So, again, no cookie for Nadeo.

I have TM:O and TM:S (plus the first three VirtualSkippers), and I really love them, but I won't be buying this one. I'm tired of the StarForce sh*t, and of the abuse you get in their forums if you *dare* criticize them for using it.

L0cky, you can say whatever you want. I know I've had freezes with the original TM that went away with the cracked version. And I know that I've had loads of coasters, and that magically went away when I uninstalled the StarForce drivers. I love how loads of people think that since they've had no problems, everybody that says otherwise is lying.

SF is unnecessary and useless (it can be bypassed), and I won't be giving them my money if they're calling me a thief and f*cking with my computer. Which is a pity, because the game is really good.

Edit: spelling

Installed the patch, it completely deleted my character and settings. No way to recover via undelete utils since it was in my C drive and I did some things between installing the patch and trying the game.

I'm uninstalling the f*cker right now, and Iron Lore goes to my permanent list of "no buy" companies. Congratulations.
