No, sir, it's not your place to worry where my money or nin's or whoever's is going...yet as long as your not letting them screw you, why don't you keep it to yourself?The reason why it is my place to worry and it is important for me to complain about it is because success breeds imitation. Because Valve has effectively proven that sufficient numbers of consumers of PC video games will put up with a restrictive content delivery and control service like Steam, many others will and are following suit. Trymedia/Macrovision and IGN are already major players in this space with major publishers like Atari, Vivendi, and Ubisoft offering titles through them. These are not yet exclusive offerings which replace their traditional retail ones, but they may become that way. EA's new digital distribution service is the latest one, and if this trend continues without more resistance from consumers, I expect every publisher will eventually have some form of service or offering which delivers and locks their game content in a similar manner. So, how other consumers
Dagok I like Riley Pizt. I like it when he gets all the valve fanboys going you guys are to easy. HAHA
Listen, and understand. Riley is out there! He can't be bargained with. He can't be reasoned with. He doesn't feel pity, or remorse or fear. And he absolutely will not stop, until your brain bleeds out of your ears!You other idiots out there who persist in pathetically attempting to ridicule me need to take some notes from this one. His is actually fairly clever.

Riley has an answer for everything. He is so smart! He makes us all just look so stupid!It's about time you wised up. Since you apparently have to be a psycophant of something, it is better for you to be a psycophant of me than some greedy game developer that is only interested in spying on you, nickle-and-diming you to death, and keeping you from using the products for which you paid it unless it explicitly approves each time you want to use them.
You accused another of being immatureYou need to learn to comprehend what you read. I did not accuse him of being immature. I accused him of spending his money on worthless crap if he thought that Rag Dool Kung Fu was his best purchase ever.
meanwhile you are the one coming up with such 8th grade wit as "FUckup" or whatever it was.I used that insulting pun for the game because it fits the target audience and would be understood by someone who is stupid enough to pay for that game.
Your response "it's only hypocritical if YOU do it" was equally immatureLOL! It is no more immature than your initial insult to which I replied (although mine is more clever). If using an appropriate insult for your level of maturity makes me immature, then I guess I was guilty on that occasion.
Why should we ever listen to the economic theories of someone so mentally behind that they find "FUckup" to be amusing?I do not find it to be amusing. I used the pun because I find it to be insulting to those who would like the game well enough to foolishly spend their money on it. Your reaction and the same from that idiot "sponge" confirmed it.
Actually it is true. There may be the occasional person that will agree with youCongratulations, moron, you just proved my point that it isn't true. Even if there were only an occasional person (and it is actually more than occasional), your statement is false.
So now you are comparing your ridiculous opinions and statements regarding games to the history of human civilization? You seriously need a reality check.It is you who obviously needs to learn to understand what you read. The comparison is NOT of my statements to the history of human civilization (although the statements are certainly part of that history if only a tiny part). Read it again and think about it this time, moron.
The reason I and others dislike you is because you are a troll and do nothing to contribute to conversation other than to be an asshole.So, the idiots of this forum have elected you their spokesman? Calling me a "troll" is the last bastion of the desperate. I certainly contribute more to any thread than your psychophantic ramblings. If people wanted to read that, they would just stick with companies' press releases.
Nothing you say carries any weight and can never be taken seriously.LOL! You take it seriously enough to reply to my comments. You can't have it both ways. That makes you a hypocrite in addition to being a moron.
And you definitely do not make me feel stupid, if anything you reassure me that I am far more educated, sane and level headed than you.You apparently are very delusional in addition to being very stupid.
Obviously you missed the part of "your entire history of posting is my example".That is not a specific example, moron. That is a sweeping, inaccurate generality. Then again, that is all you can ever come up with.
I wouldn't be surprised to one day see a news story..."A man was arrested today after being discovered sitting in his parents basement nawing on human flesh. He was known to post on the internet using the name Riley Pizt."LOL! "sitting in a basement nawing on human flesh"?! That's the best insult you could come up with?! Half of that is the oldest cliche in the book, and the other half is just a hackneyed video game or movie cliche of a zombie which certainly doesn't fit your above criticisms of me. You are truely pathetic.

No, I have not noticed that because at least two of those are blatantly untrue. As usual your comments are nothing but absurd hyperbole or an obfuscation of the issue. The notion that not a single person ("nobody") has ever agreed with something I have posted on this forum is not even remotely realistic.
Second, I couldn't care less if I am widely liked or popular because it's irrelevant to the validity or propriety of my statements. Some of the most erroneous and heinous concepts and practices in the history of human civilization have been popular. That did not make them correct or morally or ethically right.
The main reason you personally dislike me is because I make you feel stupid. But, I am sure I am in good company as many others most likely make you feel that way as well.
Finally, you once again have proved yourself to be an imbecile because you did not even remotely support your previous contention. Your contention was not that I am unpopular, but rather that I am a moron. Yet, you provided no specific evidence or example because you know the claim is baseless.
