Now they turn off the driver hook that it works with, basically breaking those games unless you feel confident you can somehow find a cracked .exe without 6 viruses in it.

As a matter of fact the current "On The House" free game which is Red Alert 2 also used to be SafeDisc protected but the Origin version comes with a cracked warez EXE (by Razor1911).
shut the front door.. you're serious? CRC passes? legit markings remain? I'm gonna look this up!
He is serious. At first, the "yuri.exe" of the addon contained traces of the warez group Razor1911. EA stopped the giveaway for one or two days, hired a company to clear the file and resumed it. Now the exe contains this company name : http://www.kallocstudios.com/

I dont know if they just removed all traces of Razor or genuinely removed Safedisc from the original from EA.

"Hey, you know how we screwed you over with this crappy DRM that rarely worked right? Well, we're turning it off now, so that you will again be screwed over.

By the way, we have a new operating system available. Don't you want it?"
Safedisc worked just fine. Never heard of problems connected to this disc copy protection system. Safedisc was no Starforce nor some home-made game developer crap, nor some Online-Securom going haywire. Just put in your original disc or replace one (!) file, the cracked exe.

Seems like Microsoft still doesn't want to make investment risks by continuing the series though (like an AoE IV), so they let their second party partners/vendors like Forgotten Empires and Sky Labs to simply update/add to the older games.
Yes, it seems like this is some kind of small side project, which can be greenlighted inside the entertainment division without major approval of the company board. A new expansion for AoM-HD or AoE2-HD doesnt violate/contradict some general product strategy from Nadella.

Having said this ... where is the addon for AoE2-HD containing AoE1 plus its expansion?

I'm seeing this for RA2 now:

Looking for Command & Conquer Red Alert™ 2 and Yuri’s Revenge™?

Wow, you guys are loving Command & Conquer Red Alert™ 2 and Yuri’s Revenge™ On the House! The demand is so high that we need some time to cool down our servers. Command & Conquer Red Alert™ 2 and Yuri’s Revenge™ will return to on the house very shortly. Thanks for being patient!
They have to replace the exe?

Apparantly, they just used a warez release to circumvent the old safedisc protection.

This game has far more gameplay than Dear Esther (which has zero from my measure).
Not only from yours. There was NO gameplay at all. The HL mod was "only" a narrative experiment. And the remake was one heck of art design/level design showcase. Simply stunning!

What i like from this remake: More savepoints. Better automatic saving. No longer walking around, exploring the landscape, discovering some secrets and puzzles ... and the next day i stand at the very beginning of the game. Because i did not finish the first puzzle, because the game only saves after finishing a complete puzzle sequence. Which nobody tells you. Arghlll! Its good they finally listened to those complains.

That was a serious question. A hypothetical question obviously, but a serious one nonetheless.
Because wages are much lower in Poland, CDP probably would achieve more content for the same amount of money. Hypothetically of course. Considering that SC breaks new technical ground ... i dont think that they would be closer to release. New things are always tricky and cost time.

It is. Mentioning Diablo 3 is an excuse. But good for Crate, meaning less competitors for Grim Dawn

Any regular Blues readers still play WoW? If so, convince an old-school MMO'er as to 'why' you still play WoW (or why you returned)...
I have an on/off relationship with WoW for years now. I play, explore the new content, fool around in raids. Then i pause for 6 - 12 months, come back, maybe start a new class, play as alliance or horde. Pause again, come back.

Why? Why not? There is no pressure no more. No "I have to prepare for th raid, my people need me" or "I have to be the best tank/dps/healer in my guild!". I just play. Sometimes all alone, sometimes in a guild. Yes, WoW has changed A LOT over the years, some thing got worse, some got better. But its still fun to me.

Just go ahead and try the starter edition if you are curious.

Why the fuck can't they call the first one "Divinity: Original Sin" and the second one "Divinity 2: Second Coming" or something? Dumb.
They should use names like hardware manufactures do:
Divinity VFR/3-6700GT Plus

SO basically I wont get updates like widescreen support? If thats the case, Im annoyed
Dont be. Bethesda just uses/licenced the community mods for their version. It does not matter, if you download/install the new Beth version or mod the old Interplay version. They both are using the same mods & patches. As you say yourself, now its just easier.

Compatibility to all the other mods and fixes is a given.

If anyone cares, Daggerfall and Arena are free to download from the Elder Scrolls website without having to make any purchase.
If you buy a Beth game on GOG.com, you get these both games for free.

I am going to guess that this is the result of legal crap. You bought it when it was being published by a different company....thus "technically" it's a different product now. It's confusing and a bunch of shit, but I suspect that is why it is that way.
But the version in your account now is the new Bethesda version, as seen on Steam. With built-in widescreen support and such. The old "real classic" version from Interplay is gone. But the new version still has the "For Gamers-Interplay"-Intro. Bethesda is only copyrighted on the new launcher. Yes, it IS confusing.

Yes, greed always wins when corporations are involved

Bethesda aka Zenimax pouted long enough, Herve Caen vanished into obscurity, everything is good to go again.

After listening to that compilation of Dinklage's work in Destiny I find myself wondering what all the fuss was about. He didn't sound all that bad to me. I have a hard time imagining what someone else will do with those lines that will make them sound that much more awesome.
It hasnt anything to do with him delivering poor dialogue. Bungie replaced him, because the budget for that additional content cannot cover him. They already spent TONS of money and sales and player "stickiness" after release is not good enough for a bigger budget. There is a reason why there are no sales numbers from Activision regarding Destiny.

Steam likes being the biggest kid on the block by a large margin.
Which it is. Regarding those Steam numbers ... can you imagine how small the customer base of Origin or Uplay really is? I wonder if Origin and Uplay are kept alive because the board simply wants to be present on the online distribution market. And not because they make a decent profit.

I just really hope for PB and us that they can turn things around with Elex and make a more serious game that resembles the Gothics in terms of atmosphere, story, dialogues, lore, characters and so on.
Have you seen the Gamescom presentation? Elex will be Risen with lasers. And watching the devs talking about their new project like it is some boring, stupid crap, they simply have to do to pay the bills ... dont get your hopes up. Especially when the PB from today has nothing in common with the team from Gothic 1.

Is the combat any better than the previous Risen games?
No. It's sometimes even worse. Just shoot your enemies when possible, dont hassle with melee unless you are forced to. I was gifted with Risen 3, played it for 2-3 hours, laughed A LOT (because its so painfully embarrassing) and then left for better games to spend my time with. Not especially a bad game, just embarrassing. Horrible, stupid dialogue and character designs, boring quests and a remarkable unremarkable story.

But if you like games which make you cringe (i like Gothic 4 - Arcania for this reason) ... go for it!

They never say how many copies Destiny alone has sold, or how much revenue it has generated. It's always combined with something else.
Because Destiny is very likely not successful enough. I wouldnt call it a flop either, but Bobby has to hide Destiny from the investors, because his big 500 mio. plan did not work out as planned.
