Funny, cos it's people who are using software for free when there is a fee required that are destructive to the industry.
How is this destructive? Have you any proof, that software piracy is damaging revenue and profits? Have you any examples of software companies going bacrupt because of piracy?

Too many people still WANT to see a problem in piracy without having a proof that piracy IS a problem. Every fuckin game, movie, music album or whatever digital media out there is pirated from day one in millions and millions and millions of copies and Hollywood made last year a new revenue record, video game companies like ActiBlizz make big cash with popular franchises, smaller video game companies or indies make a good living ... where is the problem? Why do people still buy MORE stuff every year, when they just can download this content or ask a friend to bring over his external USB hard drive for a copy session.

Where is the problem with piracy? Show me. Please.

But, hey, I don't use my brain and I just go on morals - whatever.
Yes, you don't. You just repeat some urban legend because its convinient.

No one deserves to be hassled like that, nor should anyone have to put up with that crap.

I think pirates who steal the creator's work without paying, full deserves to have this crap thrown at them.

Do you pirate software Darks?
Would you kindly stop this moral, destructive, non-solution bullcrap and start using your brain?

Worked on a game; we put in several subtly broken feature that we knew pirates would miss when they generated cracked copies of the game.
What does a dev gain from this besides some nerdy superiority chuckles? Does it make more revenue? Or does it piss off legit customers, when these triggers were not programmed well enough and were triggered even with legit copies? I experienced this with my legal copy of "Darkstar One" and got banned from the devs forum UNTIL i sent them a picture of the bill. Its save to say, that this was the last game i bought from them, ever. Was very happy, when they went bancrupt a few years ago.

I dont get the hate for Steam from people nowadays.
I don't "hate" Steam. Would i buy games through Steam, if i hate this platform? I think it's convenient, easy to use. I like Steam as a distribution platform. But i do not like it's DRM.

I just want to make sure, that i can play the games i paid for without the need for having Valve or any other company around. I just want to be in control, nothing more, nothing less.

DRM is generally the first thing I check before a purchase. And if it's not something I like, I find something else to play...
First thing i check before buying something from Steam: Are there cracks and patches to free my game from Steam? If yes, i buy. If no, i wait until i find a crack.

This name used to mean "awesome". Now it means "subpar crap aimed at mass market".
Erm ... wasn't the brand "Bioshock" from the start nothing more than a "subpar crap aimed at mass market"?

Bioshock's novelty was mostly based on the Art Deco design, which is rarely used in video games. The gameplay itself was nothing special and already a dumbed down version of former System Shock games. Yes, it was entertaining, but so is a "Transformers" movie, when you dont expect much.

I honestly can't think of a singleplayer FPS campaign I have enjoyed more than Crysis 2's in the last several years.
Which says A LOT about the piss poor SP campaign quality of most shooters from the last few years. I play HL1 through Episode 2 on a regular basis and even in the 10th playthrough this so much more fun than anything others churned out lately.

Gamestop primarily sells games and Blockbuster primarily rented movies. These are two entirely different business models.
True, but Gamestop aquisition of Impulse shows that Gamestop sees the risks of Retail, when digital delivery is growing so strong. And even if Retail stays an important sales channel, there is no harm in making additional money with downloads on the PC and possibly in the future with consoles.

Yes, why haven't they asked you?

And if they had asked you? What would your response have been?
Oh, easy: Ask someone else, because i know nothing about signing deals with major publishers.

I remember playing Z: Steel Soldiers and enjoying it.
I didnt "get" it. Even when playing against the lowest AI setting in the very first mission ... hopeless. Everything happened so fast at once, i just sat there without the chance to learn anything, until i finally deleted the game from the harddrive and sold it.

Well, back to good old TBS

Assuming you get the MP side of the game work...it's not that entertaining in my opinion. The whole system feels like someone designed it on paper then the team completed it along the journey to shipping...and then they shipped it. The MP side feels like it's never had any time spent on polishing/balancing it.
This is the usual Crytek philosophy. Crytek does rendering tech and nothing more. Crytek has no interest in designing a good gameplay.

Since Far Cry, the SP was somewhat ok and the MP quickly abandoned, lacking attractive gameplay AND proper support.

Am I the only one who liked Ultima VIII?
Before or after the patch, which fixed the horrible plattform jumping?

Before that patch, the game was nearly unplayable for most people, who expected a RPG and not some crude Super Mario with broken jumping mechanics. After this patch, it was a great Ultima game with a morbid and fascinating atmosphere.

Ultima 4 is one of the greatest RPGs of all time, so a remake would be awesome.
A remake without Lord British? EA might have the Ultima rights, but Richard Garriott has the rights on the character Lord British.

Ecthelion wrote on Mar 29, 2011, 11:32:
I wouldn't be surprised to see Egosoft go console before long. Now that the X series is done, this would be the perfect time for them to revamp their game plan. Once they stop focusing on PC, I would expect their post-release support to degrade.
Why should they make games for a new plattform? They have an established franchise. They know what they are doing AND they have a big enough customer base which provides them with a secure flow of income. Venturing in console territory is risky, costly and will eventually fail, even IF they have the backing of a major company or some generous investors.

Think less, read more. Before a PM game is released, he is all psyched up. THIS IS TEH NEW MUST-HAVE! After the game is released, he had to admit, that it was a boring pile of shit and could have been much better, which leads us directly to his new game ... rinse, repeat in infinity.

Honestly I would be fine with DRM on a game at launch that actually delayed some piracy as long as they patched it out when it was cracked.
To achieve that publishers have to introduce a complete new DRM scheme for EVERY new game they release. Which is possible theoretically, but too costly for the publishers to implement. So they dont do it. The actual cost for better protecting their games is actually higher than any potential losses they might suffer from piracy.

Which is kind of funny
