1. My original question was meant honestly. I of all people understand the joys of capitalism <cough>, but I was verbally wondering if it was pure number crunching or if yet another incident happened at Ritual. People are hired and fired all the time, but it is less common for a release (or direct update) to be sent out stating such.
2. I will get back to you on Will Rock
. Umm...Ubi Soft basically told me that it does not care about my problems; it listed my having a CD-RW (TDK's high-end 52x), Nero software (the software that comes with the TDK drive), and even having an Audigy Platinum as reasons why the game would not work. Excluding my own disgust over the company stance, I am not going to strip my system to play one game. You all know what a gaming
fan I am and my
hobby spending is quite high.
It is not my proudest moment, but I actually had to grab a no-CD .exe to get the game running. Let me play a bit more than the first two levels and then I may hop online...if I can. I have no idea what other problem(s) may arise from playing online; if it checks my Will Rock
.exe, I will not even be able to play online.
I always lucked out having both drives (DVD-ROM, CD-RW), but this whole thing is incredibly stupid. Note that I have no problems with the developer; the members personally contacted me and did everything they could to help me out. This is entirely an issue with Ubi Soft and there is not much I can do :|; I still want to play great/fun games and pirating is wrong.
Blah blah blah...co-op does sound like fun.
Understanding "BAH!," but not "PAH!" :o,
