Batman: Arkham Asylum Patch

The version 1.1 patch for Batman: Arkham Asylum should now be available on Games for Windows LIVE, among other things adding PhysX support to the superhero game (there's a new video on the YouTube with comparisons with and without PhysX). A manual version of the patch is also available thanks to The Patches Scrolls, available on FanGaming, FileFront, Gamer's Hell, The Patches Scrolls, and Strategy Informer.

If piracy makes someone more likely to buy a game, why is it not an option? Take Hitman Blood Money, for example. Awful demo that totally misrepresents the game. If people base their purchasing choices off demos, they certainly wouldn't buy HMB. Now, if they pirate HMB, they realize how great it is and decide to reward the developers.

1) Most humans are greedy fucks and I don't trust them to reward the developers.

2) You can't morally justify your "try the whole thing, then decide whether to pay for it" in real life scenarios, i.e. not on the Internet. Try it in a restaraunt, a Wal-Mart, whatever... it doesn't work. Generally a good rule of thumb is if you would be wrong to do it in the real world, it is likely wrong to do it on the Internet.

That said, you can buy a DVD player at Wal-Mart and if you don't like how it runs, return it for a refund. In a sense you could make a comparison there to pirating before you buy. However, it is pretty common knowledge that media is a lot different from physical product, and more similar to consumables. By which I mean once a game is played, especially a singleplayer game like Batman, one has little motivation to keep it or pay for it, which is why you can't return them to stores.

So we're back to trusting humanity, which I cannot do.
