This mostly reminds me that I never did finish The Savage Empire. I probably still have the software around somewhere...
And now I just learned that it's free on GoG! https://www.gog.com/game/worlds_of_ultima_the_savage_empire

My experience with Steam and Epic Games Store:
Steam: Opened up wishlist - spent 5 mins looking down and realised I could buy everything cheaper elsewhere -bought nothing.
Epic: Opened it up and got a £10 discount to spend on anything in the store - bought Control for £22, got a new £10 discount, bought Ghost Recon Breakpoint for £10, got a new £10 discount, bought Outward for £4 ... Winner!
But, but, but, there was no shopping cart! Did you actually buy three things ONE AT A TIME?? How did you survive that??

So you can now pay full price instead of 25% off that Green Man had it last week, and you STILL have to install and create an account for the Rockstar store and loader? The only reason to wait for steam was to avoid that, so it's really a bit pointless. Or am I wrong and it only loads in the background without needing an account?
GTA V on Steam is like that. Were you expecting them not to do it again?

So much salt over a $5 item people didn't know they wanted until it was going away...

Whew, finally some even smaller gameplay maps... ...that literally no one is asking for.
But seriously, you guys worked on this for 3 years & obviously put most of the money into mocap & actors - because you shouldn't have launched with the suspicious netcode & TTK issues , not to mention with the well documented camera/ view problems.

The description interested me, but then I saw the characters made of about 20 pixels each... NVM.

nobody cares if you snagged it.
Nobody cares that you don't care that I snagged it.
It's turtles all the way down from here.
So stop telling people you snagged a freebie. Nobody cares what you grabbed. People don't care if someone saved 15% or more on their car insurance.

Different question of the day:
Who uses a Raspberry Pi for anything here? I'm smart with no time on my hands and I'm wondering how hard this would be to turn into a retro-emulation console.
If you have no time on your hands, why are you building a retro emulation console? When will you have time to use it?

And I wonder just how many of these downloads are repeated downloads. Most likely two thirds of them are.

Someone could open a restaurant named Led Zeppelin tomorrow and there would be no infringement. There's absolutely no way anyone would confuse a video game with a rock band. This was purely Iron Maiden being dicks.Bill Borre wrote on Jul 11, 2019, 12:25:
I don't think they would've lost in court. It doesn't seem much of an infringement to me. Just Iron Maiden's lawyers being dicks.
It's the way the law is structured. If you don't defend your trademark it's presumed you don't really care if you lose it or not. So it's not always that people are being dicks about it because they don't really have a choice if they want to keep their TM.

Hotfix my ass. I had it for about a month.
