News Comments > More KOTOR MMO Hints
12. Lucasarts doesn't care about PC Oct 6, 2008, 17:25 Nighthawk
 
BioWare sure, maybe, LucasArts, maybe, both of them 5 years ago and I'd get excited, however, both of them have snubbed their noses at the platform that brought them into existence.
I'm expecting trash, a poorly designed console wannabe.

Note: By snubbed their noses I don't mean ignored us completely, however, we've always come last to both of them...shame really.

News Comments > Bethesda on Fallout 3 DRM, Censorship, and More
39. Thanks Bethesda Oct 2, 2008, 06:22 Nighthawk
 
I'm glad someone is listening to the community, and I do hope they get the sales that are much deserving of this stance.
Unfortunately, I'm sure that, because of the lack of DRM there will be rampant piracy of this game...
- No demo
- Costs too much
- Wanted to try it first
- I hate Bethesda
...etc...wankers.

News Comments > $6M WoW Glider Judgment
25. Just to clarify Oct 1, 2008, 14:21 Nighthawk
 
My issue with glider isn't the players that use it to bot up to lv60/70 or wherever they want to be at, avoiding the level grind, my issue is that (and MDY HAS to realize this) the gold spammers, powerlevel spammers they are (partially) responsible for account theft (to shard items and sell the gold), in game spam, and possibly email spam (anyone validate?) use glider for their own means, and taking the enjoyment out of the game for normal players.

19. Proof or it doesn't happen Oct 1, 2008, 13:53 Nighthawk
 
Verno - Step up and proove it.

As for the judgement, good, it's like Mingus said, they played with fire and got burnt.
It's affected every player whether they realize it or not, automated bot running from mining node to mining node, doing nothing but harvesting.
Not that this matters, since they open sourced it not, it won't go away...

72. What really kills me.... Sep 15, 2008, 12:26 Nighthawk
 
Is that people here, not everyone, and hopefully not MOST of them, say things like "I don't like the DRM so I'm not going to buy the game, I'll just download it.

Are you trying to impress someone? No, you're trying to justify nothing more than theft, veiled in protest.
Here's a concept to you, if you don't like the DRM, don't play the game, don't download it, don't pirate it, you're not fooling anyone trying to justify piracy as a protest.

I didn't like the idea of copy protection, but I wanted the game, I picked it up.
Ozmodan also had the right idea, buy the game, download the ISO, problem solved, you're supporting the dev team (which you should if you want the game) but doing away with the DRM.
Someone will do the math, see the ungodly ammount of ISO's downloaded, but also see the high sales and MAYBE figure it out.
/not likely EA, but someone else


wtf_man - then don't buy the game, it's simple.

1. EA Dark Knight Game?? Aug 8, 2008, 22:16 Nighthawk
 
I can see it already, a poor PC port of a console game that's linear, with crappy graphics and no support.

Sounds craptacular to me!

/would still sell

6. Re: Is anyone really going to pay for this? Aug 7, 2008, 17:15 Nighthawk
 
Since episode 1 they've now set it up so you can't get the standalone version for free, you MUST install gametap.
Combine that with the AMD duel core crash bug, and the mediocre gameplay, and I've abandoned hope.

/starting to consider the industry wants PC's to stop gaming.

News Comments > Blizzard Works to Stop OpenSource WoW Glider
34. A glimmer of hope Aug 2, 2008, 06:00 Nighthawk
 
This could actually end up being a blessing in disguise if it gets released open source.
Blizz gets the code and knows how it operates, modifies the game to look for that, and boots the client, 3 strikes and you're banned, problem solved.

9. Interesting...and unstable Jul 31, 2008, 14:41 Nighthawk
 
It's alright, run around turning the happy story dark, however I've had some problems with the stability.
The into movie crashed, had to restart, and now I'm getting freezing sometimes, with no real reasoning.

Oh yeah, for those that have the same problems I'm running AMD, ATI, and Sound Blaster

Caveman - So because you don't agree with something they're doing you're going to steal it?
What kind of car do you drive? Does it work the same way?
People like you disgust me, if you don't like what they're doing with it, go without it...

Even if this game is boring as hell, it's still revolutionary in terms of what it's trying to do.
Just from the videos and gameplay footage it looks like it's going to be a lot of fun.

News Comments > Wanted: The Game
1. Quality Jul 16, 2008, 16:50 Nighthawk
 
First, I want to say that I think that making games to go with the movie is a good idea, everyone who likes the movie wants to be a part of it, so the idea is to get the game.
However, the handfull of "Movie Games" (not to be confused with Game Movies, where the game came first) that I've played or demo'd or looked at the box all look the same.
It's almost always 3rd person, console designed, and asscrapular!
Before anyone else comments, yes I'm sure there are a few good ones, but it's like rap music, once in a while a good thing comes along, but the rest is usually crap.

Get some originality, work with a real design team.

/sounds like Max Payne for 08

News Comments > DICE: Gaming's Future is the Web
6. DICE listens to the consumer?? LOL May 8, 2008, 11:54 Nighthawk
 
I love it, gamers have been screaming at dice about flaws in their product (BF series, etc) and only 2 years after the release of their LATEST, BF2142 they're putting in the widescreen support that was wanted at product release, and yet they claim to know where the future of gaming is going.
Free tip, listen to the consumers, then you'll know what we want and where the future SHOULD go....asses...

News Comments > On Mass Effect & Spore Copy Protection
259. Hardware copy protection May 7, 2008, 16:54 Nighthawk
 
I would like to hear back from the devs in the group (primarily) and other users like me about my previous comment.
What do you all think about hardware based copy protection, it used to be found on a serial or parallel device that needed to be plugged in to use the program (called a dongle), but likely would be a USB type device now.
Is that practical for devs? What do the other users think, I would have no issue with that.

Also, yes I know it's crackable, but, I think it would be more challenging.

News Comments > On Mass Effect & Spore Copy Protection
32. Re: no subject May 6, 2008, 16:58 Nighthawk
 
I was already on the fence about getting mass effect, looks good, and I love bioware, but I don't like the idea of copy protection that I've already been burned by in the past going behind my back to validate every 10 days.
If it were...monthly I would be less annoyed, but it's the principal of the matter.

Derek - You're right, having it check in for someone who has an always on internet connection doesn't deal with the inconvenince, and I applaud anyone that does away with CD checking.
HOWEVER, not everyone complaining is a pirate, I'll still be buying spore, see my prior comments about innovation, and like someone earlier in this thread said, there IS going to be a crack the day after it comes out, so the only people affected are us who are going to buy and don't want to crack it.
My thoughts on non-intrusive copy protection, include a hardware coded crack, something like a USB stick (anyone remember the old serial "dongle's" ?) for validation.

News Comments > Gold Sales Lawsuit
30. Impatience Apr 7, 2008, 17:40 Nighthawk
 
So in a nutshell people buy gold because they're too impatient to work for it?
My pally is at lv68, and, just questing, not doing anything special, I can make 10-20 without even thinking...
As for using it to pay for the skill ups, that's usually a progressive thing, not something in the immediate anyway. I really wish Bliz could track where the gold comes from and if it's "purchased" make it disappear.
Remove the demand, the supply with vanish.
