Not entirely applicable to this story but folks who make conversion mods need to have some kind of NDA and then leak it in to the wild from parts unknown when it's done.

It sucks for several reasons but that's the only way most of these types of mods can really exist unless you live in a part of the world which can use foreign cease and desist letters as toilet paper.

Stupid crimes like manslaughter and capital crimes like murder are virtually always crimes of passion.

I've always heard about crimes of passion but never really fully understood their significance when it came to where the perpetrator would fall on a scale of murder or manslaughter.

Is it the lack of pre-meditation? Is it more of a psychological trigger?

Russian man gets longest-ever US hacking sentence, 27 years in prison.

And yet people convicted of manslaughter routinely get half that.

Half that being lucky. The last murder which took place round here was something like 20 years ago. Dude got mad when he was cut off from drinking so he went to his truck, got a rifle and killed the person who cut him off.

Got a four year sentence which then got lowered to less than two.

I'm still on the fence after doing some legwork on how much a B350 and a R5 1600 would set me back ($525 total) and it's virtually identical to what I can expect to pay for a 7700K which is a better processor when it comes to gaming.

I suppose if I offset the cost of the build with how much I could get for my Z170 setup then a Ryzen build would be more like $350 so there's the sales pitch I can make to myself.

Gearbox had to have been ignorant of their business to a certain degree because it only became a problem when Total Biscuit basically spelled it out for them when they asked why he boycotted their titles for supporting G2A.

That's the point. Gearbox was no longer ignorant after TB let them know and they went to G2A to demand if this exclusive deal happens with you people you need to make assurances (which they lined out). After all that, G2A behaved like Gearbox was still ignorant of their business. Make sense?

Ah, yes, I see what you mean.

So what they're doing, in a very passive damage-control way, is blaming Gearbox for being ignorant of their business. If these requests are "part of our marketplace" G2A could have easily provided Gearbox with the assurances they wanted. I think I'm going to side with Gearbox on this.

Well, they only list Pocket Edition and Windows 10 Edition, which have nothing to do with the core PC (Java) version. So carry on.


That's what I was thinking and hoping for but I wasn't sure if the PC version and Windows 10 edition were one in the same so thanks for pointing that out!

So their answer to piracy is what? The inconvenience to download a new version which'll be cracked within hours or days? Like what happens to every other piece of software when there are updates?

I would genuinely laugh if saves are transferable.

I wish they'd decide whether they want this to be an arcade shooter or something with a little more realism to drive the whole "WW1 was brutally cruel" aspect because nothing sucks you out of the horrors of war more than health regen, nerf guns and vehicles (especially horses) built out of adamantium.

At least give an optional hardcore mode like the one in BFBC2 or something otherwise I just can't really see myself getting back in to it.

Why would you pay for insurance on them? Use Paypal. If the key is invalid they'll refund your money and it's G2A's problem. Most they can do is ban your account. Big whoop. Just make another.



To be fair I don't when it comes to deep discount games. I bought Wolfenstein The Old Blood for $9 and figured why the hell would I pay almost half of that for insurance. Good idea on the Paypal approach though.

I don't play the game but I can appreciate all the salty Kripparian compilations which spawn from the game on a very consistent basis.

DDR5 is on the horizon but I doubt it'll even make an appearance in the consumer market for some time. 2019 for Icelake could be possible along with the AM4+ refinement but by then I suspect RAM will cost a thousand dollars given its recent leap in price with little slowing down.

The biggest fault against DayZ is that it was built on a shitty shit engine and had awful multiplayer infrastructure. I wouldn't care if it was in EA all this time if it actually played well but you fire it up and there's as much buggy, poorly-optimized bullshit now as there was years ago.

He probably cashed out because he knew it could never be fixed and there was no point in hanging around with that noose around his neck.
