News Comments > Bethesda Blocks Used Game Sale

I guess I am stupid. Please explain.

The media you buy a game on is just media and in the case of a CD, that media is worth less than a dollar.

When you buy a game you're paying for the experience. You can't then finish the game and turn around and sell that experience to someone else. That's copyright infringement and it's theft.

Let me see if I can make it clearer. If you buy a game, finish it and then sell it to a chain of 10 friends who each buy it and sell it in turn, then 10 people have played the game.

However the development team only gets credit for 1 copy. Nobody gives a shit about the publishers, but the used game market fucks over the development teams. These teams get paid based on royalties, but the used game market steals royalties.

Does Gamesteal really deserve to resell a game 10 times? Really? Do you think that kind of thing is sustainable.

Like I said, the nuances of this argument are too complex for most people because people are stupid. Over the long term this activity results in developers getting screwed.

But, of course, who gives a shit when you can get a game for $10 off!

Morons.

Sorry your entire argument is rubbish. I do not know why you wasted your time, but consumer protection laws trump anything you said.

The used game market is theft, pure and simple. The problem is, most people are too stupid to understand this.

Can you spout more nonsense? Perfectly legal!

I can see a battle royal version of Diablo. Blizzard is not one to pass a popular game theme.

Love reading threads like this to get my morning chuckle.

As for streaming, I do not think many of us will be alive to see it. As someone mentioned below, it is with great trepidation I go into games where it will cost me if I die because at that point in time Spectrum chooses to disconnect.

When you see Rend in the top 5, you have to wonder if there are any discerning gamers. Talk about a horrible game.....

Anyone buying an I9 has their head up their ass. Unless you super cool it. the chip runs hot and hot means it throttles itself. That does not even compare the extra processing that Intel requires for meltdown.

Secondly that is a comparison of a $2000 chip verses a $299 chip.

There are a ton of games that do not run well at 1440p. This is not the only one. One of the reasons I have held off on 4k.

You can run this game at 2k on a 1060 with little problem. Personally, I can't really tell the difference between 4k and 2k in most games.

Killing the headphone jack is one of the dumber things Apple has done. Its competition continues to use headphone jacks and it is a huge issue with many users.

Well the chip will still throttle. It all depends on how hot the processor gets and those I9's get hot in a laptop without decent cooling. So anyone thinks this issue is fixed is fooling themselves.

Apple lies. The problem is NOT software it is poor heat ventilation in the laptop. The Intel chip throttles itself everytime it detects heat above a certain level.

Anyone who thinks this is going away with a simple software fix is clueless. Apple chose the wrong Intel chips and this laptop will never perform at the levels Apples expects until you use it in a deep freeze!

Dell has the same issue with the same chips. Apple laptops are junk and will remain so long as Apple does not hire some decent PC engineers!

Adding the params -nochatui -nofriendsui when starting Steam seems to kill it for the moment.

Perfect, thanks much.

These high level people are just administrators, the guys in the trenches do the actual work. Maybe it is time for new leadership?

True, there are going to be false positives. In which case you can appeal them. However VAC bans only ban you from playing on VAC secured servers. It does not ban you from playing the game.

OK, but what if that server thats hosting the game is a Coop only server and you have been banned? See the problem? You are now screwed over and cant play the game Coop with your friends.

This is why I like being able to host my own Coop servers without any intrusive bullshit like VAC.

I have to disagree here. The amount of cheating going on in these games is incredible. I fault many of the console game makers here with all their cheat modes part of the game. Too many people consider cheating just part of the game just because of prior game play experiences. If you don't want to be banned, don't cheat!

What is with this apologyitis that has infected idiots all over. Sorry the Rising Sun is part of history. If you start avoiding anything that can be associated as bad you will completely eliminate history.

Simple fact is that Jessica Price was warned before in a previous job that she shouldn't mouth off on social media, but she did. Multiple times.

Another fact is that she brags about blocking people, but instead of blocking the person she argued with, she continued arguing with him over a couple days.

Also, if you read the logs, you'd see that the person she was arguing with was very respectful and understanding, she is just a narcissist that felt slighted.

Did you bother to read the logs? He was being very condescending. There was zero respect in any of his threads and his lack of understanding was why it got out of hand. Granted she should have never responded and let it get out of hand like that.

Learn to read, it does clarify things. He was right, the FCC was not given the right to do that by congress. His dissent was not about net neutrality, it was just that their was no law that granted the FCC the right to do that.

People who read headlines and the comment usually end up looking foolish.

“The whole thing was highly unprofessional,” she continued. “There was zero reason for him to be there. He wanted to vent his anger, and he had the power to command a woman to stand there while he took his feelings out on her, so he did. Then he walked out, [the manager] got my stuff from my desk and the HR person asked for my key card.”

Wow, this moron just plays the gender victimhood card at every opportunity. Unreal.

Yes, you pissed off customers on social media for no reason and he "mansplained" that you were fired for being a fucking idiot. Let us rise up against male oppression!

Who is the moron in this thread, not her! The number of asshats that play these games is phenominal and she unfortunately ran into a major asshat. She was completely right, management folded. Looks like the asshats are in charge at Arenanet. Fat change I will ever buy one of their games again!
