Ok, that FBI-owned Megaupload.org thing, shook me awake. Nervous

I got one of the megaupload cloudstorage addons for Firefox to download 2 small mods for a game. So I was freaking out I had a FBI addon in my FF, but it was mega.nz Whew

Right, except that has nothing to do with whether Feeding is Autokill or not.

I been complaining about how he just murders that guy for no reason. Did you see he had data about everyone in the district. The guy he killed(the enforcer guy) was forced into that work to care for his sick son. So not only did he murder him, he also made an orphan.

It looked like he killed him directly from dialog, without reason or cause, except to get extra xp for feeding on a human. Now in another forum, we've been debating whether Feeding is an autokill or not. It seems to be, at least to me. I thought he was going to entrall the guy or help him and his son, but uhh...no.

So here is a doctor who not only took Hippocratic oath but has a mentor (in the players vampire state) and goes to church to confess he is a monster. Wth, none of this makes any sense.

They were far more insidious this time, most people could tell they screwed up Thief before it was released. Preventing them from preordering and supporting a crappy sequel. Now they added microtransactions with intent (whether they are shamed into fixing it later or not) to completely exploit their customers.

Not to mention, according to what I've read, basically just decided to cut content directly out of the game. Selling it as dlc, yet leaving gaping holes in the story as it is now. At least normally you could expect a cohesive story from a $60 game in the past.

I came late, just like Steam (2011) and have only known about key sites for about the last year, if you were asking me. So you guys know much more about this and hopefully I'll get corrected if I'm wrong.

I've spoken out against publisher abuse for years and been a strong advocate for developers. At least on the surface this seems like the same debate we had with the record industry overpricing and sites like napster. I've noticed since the death of Flash sales, these key sites seem to have the sales missing. In reality, the 5 year old game I linked was on sale for about $4.50 which is about what normal pricing would have put it at after that many years, on a Flash Sale.

Now I'm not saying there's not people taking advantage of an new unregulated industry but that happens all the time. Nor do I know the percentage of bad apples. However, the US population being forced into Globalization just like every other country. I see it as most reasonable that these are games bought up in mass quantity in 2nd and 3rd world countries then sold on the global market.

This has been happening for years with m$ selling windows for a few dollars if not giving it away for 'FREE' just to get a market share. Not only that, I also believe there is a ratio of pro-profit per shared games. While I don't know the actual ratio a good example in relation to Forum activity; for every 5 shared games, there is one legit sale. In a global market that could be very significant.

Anyway, nothing scientific but just my uneducated opinion, on what I believe I see and what makes the most sense atm.

Not buying this simply for the lame abuse of the franchise. No Tommy, no Indians, no aliens, no gravity shifting = no Prey = no buy.

Why not take it as it is and judge it on its own merits?
If it's a great game and you refuse to play it because it has the same name, but isn't directly following, a mostly mediocre game, who are you hurting?
Couldn't that be said of the publisher? Name your game something new, let it stand on it's own...

Surprisingly good news, after Thief I had about given up on them ever shaking the console first mentality. Still waiting to hear what you guys think before I do anything.

Also, I still don't own any of the new Denuvo games. I was too worried about some kind of starforce fiasco or crashy/buggy issues, so how has it been on Steam any big conflicts?

Obsidian technically has the whole Troika team working for them and has several secret projects! Lighter

Brian and Annie usually worked as outside contractors in the past, i.e. Alpha Protocol and such.

Anyone understand Win7 licensing. I've tried to google around with no luck. The question being, is it legal to have multiple installs on the same PC? I.e. 2nd drive being a backup, in case of issues. Obviously only one drive will run att and when updating it would show the same PC but just a different drive with the same serial.

raid 1 and done? Although as long as both arent on at the same time and its the same hardware id's then it would be fine.
Unless I misunderstand your meaning, even if I raid 1 they both still need to be updated. Unless there are stand alone, offline downloads. I'm guessing Corporate licenses have access to offline update files, but not sure about individuals. Could be since win7 is getting older, they will become available.

Thanks, that's what I was thinking too, just wasn't sure if the hard drive id's were considered a change. Iirc, we can change 1 or 2 hardware devices, before it starts being an issue (I could be completely wrong about it). I'll need a new mobo and memory, so just trying to plan ahead.
