Right? RIGHT?!

If you can figure out how to exchange all the hours you spent playing over the past 7 years, sure. Otherwise, it's like someone that saw a movie in theaters asking for their money back when it hits network TV 2 years later.

meanwhile crooked Hillary is confirmed crooked.

thank you donna brazile for confirming what everyone with a brain already knew.

I thought people on the left would be a little upset about this but somehow it got glossed over. Perhaps you're right, since everyone "already knew" it just doesn't have any impact whereas fresh scandals or unknowns are more compelling reading.

I thought Sanders was a really interesting candidate. He wouldn't have been able to pay for any of his grand ideas but that election was certainly calling for them. The school tuition stuff was impossible and he had no credible plan but damn it would have been nice to see someone try.

Yeah, to me it falls to an "already knew." Sanders was also an enemy of the DNC prior to deciding he wanted to make a serious run for President, so it doesn't surprise me that a guy who had spent decades talking about what a joke the DNC was didn't get a ton of internal support from them when deciding he wanted to use them to further his own career. The DNC still went further into Hillary than I had expected, but I expected a lot and basically understood it. Everyone else sucked, except Bernie, who had antagonized them for years.

Which is also why I said here a few days ago I think the DNC is still in trouble next election. There's nobody. Nobody. They let themselves be steamrolled by Hillary because they knew she was the best they had, and she still wasn't very much.

The cost of Denuvo to a company like Ubisoft likely isn't huge on a per-product basis. They almost definitely sign a fixed fee for everything they publish, rather than a per-product basis, and it likely ends up a very small figure when averaged out. Then there's the cost to implement, which is probably also not huge, and the cost of sales lost due to having Denuvo, which is also likely not huge.

I find it hard to believe that a DRM at that level isn't costly. Servers have to be consistently available and maintained throughout the life of the product downtime where people can't play is NOT going to get good press.

The Denuvo folks would have to be pretty silly not to charge an arm and a leg for what they are doing and supposedly saving their clients in costs.

An average of 25 games a year use Denuvo. How are they staying afloat and turning a profit if not charging a pretty penny?

37 games in 2017. So far. 5 from Ubi. Per LinkedIn, 20 employees.

When Denuvo first came out, it took months to crack. So the corporations got some perceived value there.

ACO has been out a week, and still no crack. So they're perceiving value with this currently. The longer it goes uncracked, the more they will feel justified in this expenditure and implementation.

Absolutely true. The real question that we'll never get a straight answer to is: "Was the monetary cost of Denuvo recouped by the additional sales that the DRM brought in?"

I personally believe that this is a difficult question to answer. If your game is crap, it generally won't sell well. In terms of ACO, it seems to be a good game at the core. So did additional sales come from Denuvo or from the substance of the game? Other games with Denuvo did not seem to do spectacular sales despite having it at launch.

At the end of the day though, it is likely fairly easy to convince your shareholders that Game A sold so well because you shut out those dirty pirates and that Game B could have been a much larger disappointment if the heroic DRM wasn't present (at least we made a small profit *applause*).

I feel like we have 4 or 5 conservative posters here that will routinely say things without backing them up. Not meaning with sources, but even with an explanation for their thinking.

We have one prominent liberal that does the same, but pretty much everyone, regardless of political views, will expand a tiny bit rather than just fire and forget some 5 word argument.

I have been playing CSGO since 2012 and have never even once heard that word. Others, yeah. But what makes you think video games are free of assholes that often use words they dont really mean, because they are insecure little children? Quite the opposite actually. In the 90s I learned that already. You havent learned that even now, it seems. Deal with it, if you want all people to be the same, all you will get is a society like in 1984. If youre too sensitive, ignore people like them, they shut up as quickly as they started spewing out BS like that. And sometimes you actually make friends with them and they turn out not being that bad and had only a bad day or whatever. Happened quite a few times to me. I got to know my best friend out of a situation like that, when we clashed in a game and he thought I am an asshole and vice versa, at first.
Of course if youre anti social and stereotype everyone, like... well... you just did, you wont make friends easily period. And you asking for stereotypes you mentioned makes it obvious again, that you have no clue what youre even saying. The hypocrisy... Normally I would say youre very young, but you cant be. So its obvious and I wont waste more time with you.

I don't believe for a second you never heard that, because it's endless.

Your second sentence is a disaster grammatically, but who cares if they mean it? How does that matter? And why are the people annoyed at being called terrible things the children, and not the people incapable of...

Wait, we've had this discussion. You're the guy that said that being able to call people "faggot" on Xbox Live is the only thing stopping you from actually killing people. You don't seem healthy, and you don't seem to want to address that your actions bring people down that don't deserve it, just because you have rage control issues.

I'm going to stop talking to you. Forever. You're some kind of weird ball of rage that isn't worth getting into this.

One final posting - then I'm out of here, I just can't take what is going on in this thread:
We, the gamers, should be rooting for the companies that bring the games to us. Instead, here I too often witness how the companies are prime evil and the pirates are the brave crusaders. Please, please, please, don't whine and cry and call out the companies when you get less AAA products for windows/linux because of your friendly pirates. Just don't. You supported them, you rooted for them, now live with the consequences.

I, for one, will keep paying for the games I want and will hate the pirates for harming the people that work on these games.

And now - good luck, keep gaming AND PAYING.

There's an endless belief that piracy is a victimless crime. I like the way you think about it.

Please take your snarkodetector in for calibration. It seems to be off.

NamecaF's comment was pertinent considering what's happening today. Seemed like NamecaF delivered poetic justice to me. As we all know, all white people are racist and it's perfectly fine to attack and slander white people based on the color of their skin. Oh wait that's racist.

NBC news called all gamers racist recently in their propaganda hit piece. The wound is sore and soft and Rigs hit it. Not Rigs' fault but really, don't go there. No I don't expect Blue to post the link since it so clearly exposed the alt-left lies so here it is anyway.


Isn't there some Flat Earth rumor you should be off believing?
Of course you're also concerned about racism against white people, and of course you also say something dumb like NBC called "all" gamers racist. Does NBC say "all?" No. But you're so desperate to be offended you hear it.

Gamers like their hardware to be ugly and full or idiotic lights. Do all gamers like this? No. But no one gets angry when it's said, people just acknowledge that yes, there are gamers who do. And, if you go to reddit, there are lots of gamers who are into white power politics. If you go onto literally any voice chat there are gamers screaming it all day long. But if someone says out loud that gamers do this, someone like you doesn't go "yeah, why do you hear this stuff more while gaming than anywhere else," you go "HOW DARE YOU ACCUSE ALL GAMERS OF THIS!"

I generally find those that get most angry at this tend to also be the ones screaming the n word in every game they play. It's not a perfect correlation, but fairly close. The "how dare they call me deplorable" people typically end up being the deplorable people.
You fling around quite a lot of stereotypes for a morally superior person.
Just the usual hypocrisy on the way to hell, paved with good intentions...

What stereotypes?
I spent a lot of time over the summer playing CS:Go. I got called the f word or n word pretty much nonstop. That never, ever happens to me anywhere else. But I didn't play a single round of CS:Go in which someone didn't call someone else that.

I don't feel this is a controversial statement, it's more factual.

Seriously, what stereotypes do you think I mentioned?

Who do we owe more here? The publisher putting out PR, or our fellow gamers who trust each other to be informed about what's going on?

Last I checked that only applies to the justice system, and no one here is calling for Kevin Spacey to be locked up. At least that I've seen.

Innocent until proven guilty has never applied to the rest of life. Accusations have always come with consequences that aren't contingent on a conviction in a court of law. Yeah, sometimes false accusations are going to fuck someone up, and it sucks, but that's how it's always been and how it will always be.

It's society's way of dealing with scumbags who have good lawyers. No lawyer can save your reputation.

Also it's accusations of like 3 or 4 men at this point.

Perfectly put.

Going to agree with everyone saying this is the right space to discuss a competitor, just like Star Citizen threads were the right space to discuss Elite.

It's good for people interested in a certain underrepresented genre to know of the options out there. Neither game is identical, so people are bound to prefer one to the other. Making sure they make the right decision is what word of mouth forums are for.

It's not saying "LOL WHAT MORONS WILL BUY DESCENT WHEN A NEW MORTAL KOMBAT IS COMING OUT!" it's saying "if you're interested in this game, it stands to reason you'd also be interested in this game." That's exactly the information I want out of this place.

It's breeding such a system of absolute fear and anxiety that the slightest thing will have you labeled as some goose-stepping racist/bigot/sexual predator/absolute evil monster whom should be burned at the stake! This is the same sort of shit that starts inquisitions and witch burnings. It reminds me of one of the best TNG episodes, The Drumhead...

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: This is not unlike a... a drumhead trial.

Lieutenant Worf: I do not understand.

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: 500 years ago, military officers would upend a drum on the battlefield. They'd sit at it and dispense summary justice. Decisions were quick, punishments severe; appeals denied. Those who came to a drumhead were doomed.


Lieutenant Worf: I believed her. I, I helped her. I did not see what she was.

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Mister Worf, villains who twirl their moustaches are easy to spot. Those who clothe themselves in good deeds are well camouflaged.

Lieutenant Worf: I think... after yesterday, people will not be so ready to trust her.

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Maybe. But she, or someone like her, will always be with us, waiting for the right climate in which to flourish, spreading fear in the name of righteousness. Vigilance, Mister Worf - that is the price we have to continually pay.

Wait... what PC bullshit? Being angry at a man for sexually abusing a 14 year old? Or are you tying it to the machine that can identify patterns of suicidal people, though I'm not sure how that ties to being politically correct...

I dont condom any of this type of crap. but the real question is, why is this now just coming out? Thats what urks me to no end.

The Weinstein thing has taken the cork out of the bottle. A lot of people have been coming forward with their experiences.

Because coming out previously meant that not only would people not believe you, but also that your acting career would be over. Now there are enough people coming out about this that it's adding legitimacy to their claims and any black-balling of an actor or actress is going to be under a lot of scrutiny.

I don't get why this is a hard concept for many people. If someone powerful does something to you, especially in an industry that's governed by power such as Hollywood, if people choose not to believe you it ends you. Not many people feel it's worth risking your career over such things.

Even outside Hollywood, why do so few rape or sexual assault victims come forward? Why do so few go to HR? Because they often feel it isn't worth the huge can of worms, everything from potentially being considered a risky hire to having your name dragged through the mud as all your exes end up as character witnesses in a courtroom saying that you got a thrill out of going out without panties on and therefore you must have deserved whatever Harvey Weinstein or whomever did to you.

The numbers continue to highlight a huge swath of people who don't watch sports, and are tired of paying for it. ESPN's been losing 2-4% of its subscriber base annually, with one recent survey suggesting that 56% of consumers would drop ESPN in a heartbeat if it meant saving the estimated $8 more the channel costs cable subscribers each and every month.

Exactly, why should people pay to subsidize shit they don't watch? This is just another clear illustration of out of whack major league sports and its associated costs are with most of society. Everything from salaries to public funding and subsidies of stadiums and sports channels to the absurd cost of sports merchandise which is virtually all licensing fees. Time for all those multi-billionaires and millionaires to take a reality check and a huge pay cut if they want to survive.

Because old white guys own and run everything, that's why.

Interesting charts at the attached. I say if ownership should mirror % of race in the US (which might be a good thing as it will provide help to those who can't do for themselves), the flipside should also be instituted...the player base of all professional sports should also reflect % makeup by race in the US. Whites and Latinos definitely need help to increase their numbers in Football and Basketball. Blacks could get a ton more roster spots in Hockey.

It's only fair.

The speaker conversation is kind of crazy to me. I still have my old 4.1 Logitech speakers that everyone adored back in 2000 or so. The Z-560s. Hell, two of the speakers were never even connected. 188 watt subwoofer.

They haven't been used in years, and I can't say they ever will be again, but I hold on to them for some reason. At this point, I live in a Manhattan apartment and feel like using the subwoofer would be grounds for murder, so I do most of my gaming with headphones on. Occasionally I'll connect to the bluetooth speaker behind my computer, when I don't need any kind of situational awareness from proper stereo. I also use that for music. If I'm playing a game where sound doesn't really matter, like XCOM 2, I may not be using sound at all.

Man, I've gotten old.

Nope. Enormous amounts of smoke, and maybe a dozen things that are 20% good enough, but nothing has surfaced (or clearly looks to surface imminently) that is good enough.
Okay, first I thought I said nothing had come out which would get him impeached. Maybe I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure that's what I said.

Second, impeachment is a political process not a legal one. Hence it suffers all the problems any political process does.

Third, unless I misread your "tone" (certainly possible) you'll disagree when I say IMHO, Trump has already committed impeachable offenses. I believe he attempted to obstruct justice when he fired Comey. That said, even if every single GOP member of Congress agreed with me on that, they still would not impeach him.

I think we were all agreeing with you, apologies if it came across like Verno was disagreeing and I was then doubling down with him.

And I'd wager, with Trump, it's not about what he'll do but if and when we find out, so yeah, I do agree with you. There was just a mismatch of us agreeing and realizing it.
