The game on release was a clusterfuck to say the least.

Last earthquake in OK (over the weekend) was a 5.0. They keep going up in severity too...

As a native Californian, we don't even notice until it's a 6. Go watch the scene in ID4 and you'll understand.


As for the car in the canal.... bravo guys, bravo!

I don't believe anyone who says they pirate a game, play it, and then buy it if they are satisfied. Yeah, maybe they buy it on a Steam sale 2 years later when they want to re-play it, but they aren't slapping down $50-60 when it really counts in the first critical couple weeks of sales. It's too tempting to find excuses to not pay for it once you've already had it for free.

The bottom line is that people pirate because it's easy to do, usually doesn't get you caught, and if caught, only gets you a sternly worded letter from your ISP. And most importantly, because people like free shit.

I've always found the PC community's attitude towards piracy funny. If a developer or publisher complains about piracy, everyone freaks out and pretends it's not really a thing and there's no way it could impact sales and please oh god don't abandon the PC platform you assholes.

But then a few days later they are justifying why it's actually okay to pirate games.

Look, I don't give a shit if you pirate games. I've done it myself in the past. But don't try and justify your shit. You either just wanted free shit or didn't want to wait for a sale. There's no situation in which pirating a game is the moral choice. Sure, the consequences both to you and the developer are minimal and you're not exactly eating babies, and MAYBE you even pay for it later. But it's not justifiable.

Developers are putting out a product and asking a price for that product. Your choice is either to buy the product, or not buy it. If you're not comfortable with the price, or are not certain you'll be getting your money's worth, your only legitimate choice is to neither purchase nor play the title.

The developers are not entitled to your money, but neither are you entitled to play their game. Stop pretending otherwise.

There are 2 reasons I may pirate a game 1) financially unable to purchase the game at it's release or 2) That I may like the game but I already have quite a few games that taking up the play list do I need another game.
But I typically do use itt as a demo and to get a baseline of performance on my computer.

I'm not one to advocate prison rape, but Martin isn't making it easy.

Dawn of Justice was good, just needs better music. Unless they are trying to out do Star Trek Beyond.

So I bought a basic ship plan, and returned it due to potentially having to replace a water heater I asked for a refund.
Was surprised. Had a email back in less then 6 hours telling me that it will take 30 days to process it and that my account was deleted and I would have to make another one.

I think RDR was really the 'testbed' for the tech that would lead to Max Payne 3/GTA 5. RDR did get a substantial expansion, and considering I think I overall bought 3-4 copies of the game (finally bought a digital copy, and would be a MAJOR selling point for me buying a Xbone (also the Forza series, oh how I miss Virus Tag).

I get the comparison to Fallout 4 but I don't understand the context for XCOM 2. What's bad in XCOM 2?

Imagine, every time you tried to do something in Fallout 4, you were given a time sensitive mission. And I don't mean here and there, I mean EVERY FUCKING 2 MINS!
There is a reason I'm gay and single, if I wanted to be nagged to death both of those would be reversed!

Payton finished his 200th game with a Super Bowl win, and Cam is 1000 times better then I am at playing football, not to mention the money they make because of their skills.

Who the hell am I to bitch/moan/complain and play armchair quarterback?

*edited cause I really don't give a shit what his first name is I just know he's a Manning*

I facebook MAYBE 3 times a year. I think the original reason I signed up for facebook was for for either Crackdown 1 or 2 and some in game item. Other then that, I really don't care for facebook. Too many 'If you are really my friend you'll reply to this' or 'hey look my child just took a crap that looks like Abraham Lincoln's head!'.
