don't know how you can call it a sequel - more accurate would be payware patch.

China plays with never expiring pay per minute.

I'd play MMORPG's if that was the case here in North America. Sick of paying a monthly subscription that gets wasted if i am too busy to play.

I played Aion for a couple months while it was out in China but not the US, using an English language patch derived from the English beta. It used the payment model you described and it was fantastic. Very affordable and without any subscriptions, client charge, pressure to play, or billing information stored on their servers.

Honestly if they can find a way to do it I think you'll see a lot of people paying for 40k Online in Asia even if they play somewhere else in the world.

I have no doubt they could - but i doubt they'll see it as profitable as the ripoff model.

which plot? the actual plot or mine?
The actual plot that people are rolling their eyes over.

Didn't play the 'recent' ones so can't judge the new plot against the old ones.

I meant, you know, the book. That big heavy thing with pages and words that the entire series is based on?

Ah - refering to a book when the context was computer game. Got it!

I guess it's harder to remember a plotline from a book 13 years old when you read at least a book a week.

Wouldn't it be better for Rainbow to go after THE REAL TERRORISTS - ie - assassinating or capturing bankers and politicians - rather than this transparent brainwashing attempt to support the bastards that have created this mess our country is in today?

That would make a GREAT game.

newer starforce is fine. it's just a one time online verification thing. steam drm is a lot worse.

Until you run out of activations.

It IS limited activations - no matter that you can backup your activation. What if your drive crashes and no chance of deactivatng? YEP - one less activation...

What if starforce shuts down, or becomes uncontactable? Can we rely on a historically dodgy bunch of dickheads to give us an unlock forever patch to their DRM?

PASS.

huh? essentially a patch to an existing game - featuring the same helicopter? for half the price of a new game?

I hope there's a lot of new features, rather than just fixes to old issues to make the cost justified.

TAP TAP TAP.

You hear that RIM?

That's more nails in the coffin.

While you continue to force consumers to rely upon a centralised, easily spied upon and easily shut down by government 'authorities'centric infrastructure you're going to keep losing consumers.

@UBI - DRM = no sale.

I want to be able to use my software on any system I have, anywhere I am, whether I have an internet connection or not.

If the only way to do so is to use a pirated version...

DUMBASSES.

NO DEDICATED SERVER FOR PC.

I hope relic understand that without a dedicated server you can't foster a gaming community for PC.

Who would know better about the evils of spying on your own citizens than Germany, considering both the Nazis and the Communists did it.

Allowing governments to spy on the people is unacceptable. The people should be spying on the government.

Who in their right mind would pay $129.99 for a 320GB hard drive???

The same people who would play games at 720p, no AA, no AF and 30 FPS, all because being able to sit on their couch while gaming is their top priority.

..or got sick of all the BS PC gamers have to deal with and just want it to work.

Human Error?

Ie - the Human was in error for using Game footage that they'd get caught using?

Kind of like the footage of the Palestinian soccer team return home to cheering and dancing that was used to portray the Palestinians of supporting the attacks of 9/11?

Anyone want to bet the producer of the show is a zionist?

Facebook will surely 'check' links for viruses. Or more importantly, log every link you go to, just in case you end up doing something like checking an 'occupy wall street' link.

Facebook is simply a private version of a people database, used by governments to spy on their people, that they wouldn't be able to put together themselves without political backlash.
