If they activated they're legitimate keys, it doesn't matter how they were purchased. That's a problem with the merchant software and for the CC companies. This sounds more like regional pricing protection bullshit than actual stolen keys. Fine, if that's the kind of party they want to have I'm going to stick my dick in the mashed potatoes.


I love how every time this happens a bunch of people come out screaming about how they're somehow being ripped off somehow by the developer.

Here's a tip, if you buy stolen goods, they can and will be revoked from you.

Here's another tip. Instead of blaming teh developer/publisher how about BLAMING THE STORE THAT SOLD YOU THE STOLEN GOODS IN THE FIRST PLACE. If you bought a tv from the bank of a van, then the cops come and reclaim it because it was stolen, you don't scream that Sony ripped you off do you? The tv was 'legit' when you bough it, it turned on right? So you can tell the cops that it's yours! See how far that gets you.

Mark of the Ninja was really good, so I've got high hopes for this one. Sounds pretty good already. Looking forward to seeing the gameplay.

Reviews have been very good. I like the fact that you can tweak the gameplay as you see fit.

edit: And another.

I got in at the alpha early access when it was on an absurdly good sale. Even then it was pretty polished and a lot of fun. I can easily reccomend it. It was pretty tough to beat too last time I played it.

The great thing about the release code is that you can make the difficulty as easy or as Dark Soul-crushing as you want. They added a metric ton of difficulty options you can tweak.

I see Kinguin is playing coy. As if "oh sorry we had no idea these '3rd party resellers' were selling stolen game its not our fault! boo hoo!"

They can go pound sand. They know exactly what happened and they don't care.

Just like the Sniper Elite 3, some shady cd-key shop comes out and has OUTRAGE over their shady business model, blames the publisher, and says they will 'take legal action'. Guess what they did. JACK. Because they HAVE no legal recourse. They're just all bluster.

They sell stolen keys. ANd somehow Ubisoft is to blame?

Lag is a huge factor in just about any high level of play. The ping difference between east and west coast is generally over 100ms and has been a major point of contention for years. Lag spikes that leave you a second or three behind gameplay can throw an entire teamfight that the game may hinge on.

And for anyone yammering from the 'get off my lawn with your new fangled twitchy games' angle...keep in mind that 15 years ago broadband users also received all kinds of hate for being LPBs (low ping bastards) in Quake.

Most games, LoL included, tolerate >50m latency as it's basically assumed as part of the net code. Modern games are designed at their core to smooth out latency differences between users. Such that LPB and even high latency users essentially get the same 'game'.

Lag spikes are an entirely different problem and have nothing to do with latency. You can have 10ms latency, but if you have massive packet loss you're screwed no matter what.

There's no 'breach'

1) People have terrible passwords and reuse them. Anyone could 'hack' probably hundreds of Origin accounts just by using any of the leaked 'accounts' from other companies like Target/HomeDepot/TJX/etc

2) Why this would be happening is a bit odd though. YOu can't gift games on Origin so you're basically stuck using the account.

3) Origin has 2 factor autentication on it, use it

4) Your email likely has 2 factor authentication too, use it

Bummer. I was interested in this.

true but at least they're saying "yeah this isn't goign to work we're sorry" rather than "this isn't going to work but we'll release it anyawy and take your money"

It's just the internal team so they'll get reallocated to differnt project so it's not like those people are out of a job or anything. So while it's bad news, at least it's probably the best scenario for it.

Can you even get past the intro sequence with just 24 minutes in a AAA game these days? Hell FF doesn't let you push any buttons for like 1 hour :p

The fact that you get a steam key when you purchase is kinda silly. It means that you're going to have to download the game TWICE if you buy it off this service. That's only gonig to trick people once before they figure out that's fairly unappealing

Also practically all download services do compression....

I like how they put forth the only valid point in #5 the immediately dismiss it. Which shows a vast lack of understanding on how the physical distribution channel works.

Publishers set pricing. And physical retailers do not like being under cut by digital retailers. Thus they force publishers to set their digital and physical pricing to be the same. And if you think this is some kind of fantasy, note P&G will literally dance naked outside Walmart's corporate headquarters if the Waltons say so.

The article seems to miss the point that for CONSOLE games physical distribution is the only way to get to the masses. And if a retailer doesnt like you, you can be rest assured your next game will be rotting in the back next to the WiiU titles. While your competitors title will be prominently displayed at the front, while the cashiers constantly ask every person that walks in if they want to pre-order it.

If you choose to pay for something, then it isn't robbery. I don't care for the game as it is now, but I'll take a look at it when it's finished.

Stardock already has a 'ban' on the game internally because people were playing the prototype constantly so much.

Last week's patch was like 30 megs or so. I doubt it's that small... They've got tons of new art in the DLC, so I expect it to be a Gig if not larger.

Creston

I thought I got one for like 200 meg, but even that would be small...could be a partial.


The Torque DLC is already 900MB

C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\Borderlands 2\DLC\Iris

And Captain Scarlett's was 900MB as well

G:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\Borderlands 2\DLC\Orchid

Given that this DLC is the 'largest EVAH!!!' I'm guessing you're not going to get away with anything less than 1GB

EDIT:

Poking around the DLC appears to be 'slightly' preloaded under the codename Aster

C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\Borderlands 2\DLC\Aster

No real assets but you can see 'hints' of what is to come in the willowdlc.ini

Not really spoilers but I made it secret just in case

What's the point of an R18+ rating system if you're just going to do the EXACT same thing as before, which is to exclude anything and everything under the sun.

Note GosuGamers TOTALLY SCREWED this up. DOTA2 still requires keys. They were apparently too stupid to say INSTALL the game and test whether their 'news' was true.

It is not. They did it for pageviews for something they knew was false.

Unless you can point to a specific provision and to what local law it violates they are legal. No matter what you think they are legal and enforceable.

You can put whatever you want into an EULA, it doesn't mean it will hold up under scrutiny and judgment. Saying something is 100% legal in all countries is an over generalization too.

My point was that people think EULA are illegal. They are not as they are contracts. Specific provisions may be unenforceable depending on the clause or local law, but even that in no way makes them "illegal". People need to get it into their brains that EULA are contracts an are enforceable world wide.

Almost nothing on any properly written EULA is unenforceable no matter what county you are in. This is how Xbox is able to obliterate your entire account if you put "Tutorial for 1800 MSP" in your profile.

If EA kills your account because they have proof that You withheld a bug during the beta, then you have no recourse. There is nothing illegal about it. Even if proving it would be quite difficult.

The clause appears to be designed such that cheat creators would be liable within the game. A cheat creator could release a cheat from a known bug but not cheat themselves. Thus never violating the EULA though ruining the game for everyone

This is one minor way in which companies can go after cheat creators.

It's a bit of a round a bout way of doing it though

Speaking of XCom, I hope they made a decent profit on that. It would be a shame it if went another 12 years in between releases.

Was just thinking the same thing myself

Given their previous history of games, the quality, and how they look. I would use a different analogy

It looks like a JA2 update... and we all know how that went. I'm very very dubious this studio can give anything remotely polished like Firaxis. The launch trailer and the Space Marine model alone make me feel very uneasy. The spacemarine model looks.... 'odd'. Especially given Relic's treatment of the franchise, this looks very ham handed. I 'want' to be excited but nothing about teh studio, the movie, or the even the single still provide make me think this is going to be anythign other than an unmitigated disaster.

If only Blizzard had the kind of resources that InXile or MinMax games had, then they could afford to just do a proper Linux port.

But with a small indy studio like Blizzard you just have to take what you can get.

95% of all games do not have a Linux client, and I don't think Blizzard ever claimed that Linux was supported, so why single them out?

And how can people be surprised when their automated cheat detection system finds problems when people connect through an emulator on an unsupported environment?

On top of the fact that these 'reports' are suspicious and so few. There's hardly a 'revolt' going on in any of the Wine forums about it. Of course the WINE is 'unlinked' how convenient for the author of that incredible piece of nonsense. If this was really a big problem you'd see more than this level of noise about it. Just because they're linux users doesn't mean they're not cheating just like everyone else.

I like how they take totally unsubstantieted claims by a SINGLE user as fact that linux bans are happening

Then they do things like "Oh a user said they could look at thier hard drive for any bots, but Blizzard cut off communications" as if looking at their computer would prove anything? This isn't reporting it's just some biased moron on the Internet trying to thread together any shred of possible innuendo to form it into a whole laughable consipiracy theory against Linux D3 users.

And agian all these users are 'anonymous'. Really? If you're posting to the WineHQ forums say "This is my battle tag, this is why i got banned, help me" not "Im going to bitch and whine but not actually give any useful verifyable information."

And that thread 'collecting information' on PlayOnLinux has 10 posts.

TEN POSTS

Is that the MASSIVE BAN going on? There were more posts whining about DH nerfs than this.

Whoever this writer at CinemaBlend is, they obviously have some kind of axe to grind and are pulling together incredibly tenuous data point and trying to wrap them together. It's quite sad.

Just because you're running on Linux doesn't mean you're not cheating. Done. There is no data to show a MASSIVE problem with Linux users being unfairly banned. There is hard data to show that those who haev been banned, have been banned correctly.
