Because it's the hero that PC gaming deserves, but not the one it needs right now. So, we'll hunt it, because it can take it. Because it's not our hero. He's a silent guardian. A watchful protector. A Dark Knight.
>PC game sales plummeting because pirates can't get games for free
>store sales plummeting because stores decided to hire security guards
>cars sales plummeting because car manufacturers decided to add door locks
Wow, thieves are truly delusional...
Where is the crack?
Huh? Chinese stopped bragging about their "90% cracked but still waiting for those 10%"?
Denuvo said it's bullshit
Devs said it's bullshit
Users said it's bullshit
What else do you want?
Are you retarded?
The whole thing is fake and pulled out of pirates ass.
It means, people will see the commercial over and over again. Mother who knows shit about video games will buy something from a commercial for her children right? The Christmas are coming.
>FIFA, DAO and Lords of the Fallen sell terribly on PC

Truly a future worth fighting for.
>BASED ANTI-CONSUMER SOFTWARE AMIRITE GUYS?
>EL DARK KNIGHT
Denuvo rep plz go.
No, the hero PC gaming needed was Steam, and it's already saved.
We've got MGS5, GTA V, even goddamn Dragon Ball, and did we need a DRM for that?
Nope, games sell just fine.
Nice try though.
>wanting to support the industry in it's current state
>not wanting it to crash hard
>not wanting to see companies that pushed paid online and DLCs like Microsoft, EA, Sony, Activision and Ubisoft dead
I'm sorry, but if I can't pirate the games, I just wont play them.
AA games are the best games, they don't lean on 10 million dollar marketing budgets to sell themselves to the true fans. Pretty much all of them are on PC.(except the ones made by or for Nintendo)
Console fans have been thanking manufacturers for raping them in the ass for like a decade. Now they thank DRM programmers for fucking people in the ass.
They just love supporting cancerous business models.
hey, my game can't run. Is it software incompatibility? Surely it is not the game programers fault. They would never take my hard earned dollars and give me a shitty game that crashes on anything I play it. Oh wait! The game thinks I'm a pirate! Oh, I better spends 24 hours with tech support at this defunct company to convince them I actually bought this game.
>I actually bought this game....
Not all the time. Bad games get pirated heavily and affect sales but good games get sales boosts.
Case in point:
Divinity OS. The beta could be pirated and was in a very playable state that was pretty much like a 12 hour demo yet is considered Larian's most successful game to date.
DRM is not the answer to piracy.
AA games are the best games, they don't lean on 10 million dollar marketing budgets to sell themselves to the true fans.
Completely agree with you.
>Pretty much all of them are on PC
But they also get on Steam, PSstore or XBLA when they get the chance.
Those three are a real sales boost.
Buyfag here. If you really think every pirate is a missed sale than you are hopelessly deluded.
And "helped ecnomy" doesn't benefit me, the consumer. it pits more money in the pockets of publishers provided IF pirates buy the game. (which they wont)
Talking about on PC. Sales for CoD, AssCreed, and anything EA are constantly doing worse and worse. Which I honestly wonder why they're so focused on PC piracy, when Console piracy is just as relevant. Then again it's probably just a convenient excuse to boost up their console consumer base, and dump money into R&D that'll eventually go nowhere.
And how does that benefit me?
I don't give a fuck about the companies I buy the games.
For me, they could go bankrupt after I get the game I bought.
The only honest company is CD Projekt, or the ones working on Nintendo.
The rest can rot for what I care.
>buy a denuvo game
>it kills your SSD
Thank You Based Denuvo™!
And why would I want capitalism to work?
It's a shit system that crashed hard due to how fucking broken and corrupt it is.
Give me a single reason to support EA, Activision or Ubisoft.
>The only honest company is CD Projekt, or the ones working on Nintendo.
Bullshit. You believed their marketing teams.
>For me, they could go bankrupt after I get the game I bought.
No more patches, no more new good games.
You are the reason why we won't have any good titles in the future.
>Bad games get pirated heavily and affect sales but good games get sales boosts
So to clarify:
Piracy of bad games harms sales.
Piracy of good games boosts sales.
In other words, this system works beautifully, and only retards and shitposters are against it.
>Bullshit. You believed their marketing teams.
And you believed Denuvo's marketing.
>No more patches
It's PC, the benefit of it is that we can fix the games ourselves, and even improve them. See Watch Dogs.
>no more new good games
That will happen regardless if piracy lives or not.
This industry is broken, and PS4 and XONE proved that even if piracy doesn't exist, shit, broken games will keep coming
>current video game companies are too big to fail, irreplaceable, and after they are gone, nobody will start new ones
this fucking guy
I want you to support DECK13/CI Games as they are to small to dictate the rules.
>Give me a single reason to support EA, Activision or Ubisoft.
Support American companies if you are an American.
>And why would I want capitalism to work?
Because communism doesn't work.
It's the best system we know.
>Some of us actually like game like CoD. I bet you have a soft spot for some title published by EA or Ubisoft.
EA's was Battlefield, and they destroyed the series by releasing 3 games in a row broken as fuck, that needed 1 year worth of patches.
It had, Assassin's Creed, in fact, after pirating AC4, and playing 2 hours, I bought it, physical edition even, but with AC Unity they just killed the entire series with single game, also Watch Dogs, which is literally the iPhone of videogames: marketed to hell, but dull as fuck.
The Transformers games, but nope, they decided that the studio making them was better put to making previous-gen Call of Duty ports, and they decided to kill that series as well with Transformers Rise of the Dark Spark.
Sorry, but I have reasons to wanting to see all of them dead.
Most idiots aaa games cater to are on consoles because that's the platform for madden and cod.
Piracy does not make a major difference except for small developers, as far as I know the only developer truly fucked by piracy are the guys who made world of goo.
And after they are gone, nobody will start new ones.
Pretty much. When small studio asks for 60$ for their game you refuse to buy it because it's so expensive. Small studios need more money to produce games. Large studios can offer dumping prices. Your greed will eventually destroy every small dev studio that even tries to release a new game.
>You don't actually own your own games anymore
>Games are shipped buggy and broken on purpose
>Budgets increase while quality decreases
>Integrated apps and 3rd party features that cost money
>Day 1 DLC
Yeah, we're just a bunch of old men angry at change.
people are actually this retarded...I'm baffled
It's a lie, you fucking moron.
What is SSD Firmware?
It's not companies fault that idiots buy DLCs and pre-order games. Don't forget to pre-order Witcher III right now. They are just doing business. It's the clients who got dumber over the years.
Pre-ordered the limited edition of The Witcher 3 for PC months ago.
But it's not my fault either, why would I have to put up with the shit of a bunch of retards?
I've done nothing to deserve getting kicked in the balls everytime I buy a game.
The industry wants me to buy their games?
Okay, don't release unoptimized broken PC ports, and don't harass me constantly with 20$ DLCs.
Then we have a deal, until then fuck off.
its been disproven. Only one site has posted about claims, and no one has been able to repeat that many writes. Everyone is showing a low number of writes/accesses after hours
So Denuvo has never been cracked before?
If that is the case i might just buy from some cheap russian site
>Yeah, we're just a bunch of old men angry at change.
Yes you are.
Costs of producing games goes up.
If you don't like something in the game, don't buy it.
DON'T BUY IT AND DON'T PLAY IT.
There's no such thing as a communist country on Earth, the USSR was never even communist.
A communist country:
1) Has no such thing as money.
2) Has no state. That means no government.
Did you country have either of these things? If so, it was not a communist society. Communism has been done by most human societies for most of human history actually, it just wasn't called communism.
TLDR: Most people have no clue what communism is, and often think communism is about the very opposite of what it's meant to achieve.
Costs goes up?
Then proof that those costs to something.
How is it that AC Unity costed millions and millions of dollars, yet it's one of the worst PC ports ever made (probably the worst) and it's absolutely broken?
Costs don't mean shit in quality, and if higher costs don't mean higher quality, they can go broke for all I care.
And what is this?
Denuvo does jack shit to my PC.
Also, it's not DRM. SteamWorks is the DRM protected by Denuvo.
How come you are not bashing Steam for being a DRM platform?
>1) Has no such thing as money.
>2) Has no state. That means no government.
This is complete bullshit. That's not what communism is at all. The first thing can be true in communism but is by no means a requirement. The second thing is downright the opossite of what communism is.
No I am not, because I'm not buying DLCs or paying an online pass.
CD Projekt has shown me that they do not disrespect users.
In fact, they didn't even add a DRM.
I could just get the game, and play it, yet I bought it, and a lot of people will.
>Don't buy a shitty game, don't pirate it
>You can't criticize it!
>Don't buy a shitty game, pirate it
>Your opinion doesn't count because you didn't pay!
>Buy a shitty game, get fucked over
>You're just entitled!
Face it you big, fat faggot, you're not happy unless everyone gets fucked as hard as you do, and that doesn't fly around here.
You should get good at the game of life.
If you don't like their games then don't buy them
If you like their games then buy them
If noone buy their games they'll die out
If people buy their games then they'll survive and produce more games
That's how capitalism works in this case and it works fine.
I think Steam is proprietary freedom denying DRM malware too. I think Steam is bad, but I use it anyway because it's a sacrifice I chose to make to get to the end goal of what I want.
In terms of proprietary software, Steam isn't the worst thing in the world either.
>Denuvo does jack shit to my PC.
Malware just means malicious software. This is software that's primary goal is to do malicious things against the user of it, and restrict their freedom.
It's not my fault your shitty company dumps boatloads of cash into expensive name brand VAs, hires some hollywood hack to do the score and directing, dumps a shitload of money into the marketing and DRM, and then blames me for pirating the piece of shit. Maybe you should actually pay the developers, hire good artists, stop making everything a 60$ checklist and create a meaningful consumer base as opposed to paying a 3rd party to viral shit that has nothing to do with the actual game via mountain dew and doritos. Maybe if we had demos before release so that feeling of being tricked into buying a AAA piece of shit isn't 100% confirmed. Same thing with review embargos.
Now I can't attest for everyone, because I'm one singular anon. But why would I want to go back to being a paying customer for EA, Activision or Ubisoft? What incentive do I have? I don't even pirate their games, nor pay for them, and they still make it very well known that they don't like me as a consumer. And because I don't buy into their hype and anti-consumerist policies, then I'm not welcome.
EA is telling that only reason their games don't sell on PC to the investors is because of rampant piracy.
They cannot just turn around and say "remember that piracy thing? we made it up." They have to find a way to stop the piracy for the investors.
I'm sure EA itself will hack denuvo if nobody else does it.
>tfw all the pirates racing to crack Denuvo for bragging rights
No, I have bought games since forever because pirating games is a hassle, i've always played games at the right time.
So, what benefits does Denuvo give to a user that has always bought games?
>Stop trying to convince people if you aren't willing to be convinced.
Then what's the Denuvo thread?
It doesn't need GOG even if you buy it from GOG.
Hell, i've gotten The Witcher 2 for free from GOG, and uninstalled the GOG downloader and it works perfectly.
>You can only criticize if you bought the game.
They always get cracked in the end. What's more Denuvo shit doesn't allow for any modding, so fuck them.
>preordering a game from a dev and publisher that have proved themselves over and over again is bad
>arguing yourself into a corner this hard
Thanks again /v/ for proving how retarded most of you are
One mate did the check, he said it was fine also. Greater activity than usual, but nothing horrible.
Two of HIS mates however reported the same issues. It seems to be inconsistent. Just because one guy posts a screenshot without increased activity, doesn't mean the problem is non-existant.
>Most idiots aaa games cater to are on consoles because that's the platform for madden and cod.
Exactly. They cater to those idiots because they won't even think about pirating a game.
AAA companies produce games to get revenues.
It would be fucking stupid to put your money in a clever game that is going to get pirated when you can make a dumb one that will sell thousands (or millions) of copies.
>Piracy does not make a major difference except for small developers...
And for us. The players. When companies grow big enough, they end up switching sides in order to appeal to te console market. A market that, as you know, is dominated by dumb-fucks. So they start dumbing down their games, and making games that stupid cowadooty and madden people would buy.
Unless you lived in some immaginary country, you've had state socialism, like us and everyone else behind iron curtain.
>What's more Denuvo shit doesn't allow for any modding, so fuck them.
false, more bullshit by pirates
only doesn't allow editing of the exe, texture files character files and script files should be able to be changed
so far the only games that use denuvo run on frostbite anyways so they can't be modded regardless of drm
>Denuvo comes along and stops piracy
>pirates no longer hyped for games with Denuvo
>pirates not hyping up the game
>pirates not discussing the game
>pirates not watching youtube/twitch related to said games
>nobody seems to care about game
>game sells like shit
>t-the pirates a-are ruining the s-sales!
>You can judge the game based on videos.
>You didn't actually play it!
>Who the fuck forces you to buy at release?
Nobody. That's the point. And you won't change that. If I'm interested in a game, I'll pirate it first. If it's good, I buy it if I can, or at the very least recommend it to people. If it's shit, I won't buy it, and I'll tell everyone why it's shit.
>You can only criticize if you bought the game.
You literally can't do a single thing to stop me. Kill yourself you cancerous faggot.
You mean this one? Well I learned the SSD rumor was false, but I'll still say it's going to do nothing but discourage people from even considering the games it's on. Which it will. That's a proven fact. You might get a few idiots, but the majority is still going to look at an unpirateable game as one you just can't trust to be good in this day and age.
If I fuck you in the ass and tell you that's capitalism, would you let that first-hand experience with capitalism inform your entire opinion on it? What if someone told you that capitalism has a definition and it doesn't include ass-fucking, would you dispute that based on your experience?
For what it's worth, my vote is on your side. Though it's not really because of free advertising, I refuse to support new forms of DRM that might/might not hurt my SSD without solid information.
Meh. These proprietary anti-piracy things never end well.
It will hurt their earnings, people who weren't going to buy the games aren't going to anyways. They just miss out on selling merchandise. Someone will inevitably crack the denuvo system there is yet to be one form of online security that actually works. Hell, even banks aren't safe.
SecuROM was also up in your face about it's tyrannical DRM capabilities and we all know how that paying customer raping train wreck went.
>Communism is about equal distribution of wealth
There is no such thing as money, I'm just going to remind you of that.
>who do you think is responsible for that distribution and maintaining balance.
The community. Capitalist societies have evolved where if you took away law enforcement and government there would be chaos, but if you think in terms of how a tribal society would have handled things several hundreds of years ago, that's basically how.
If you were living in a Native American tribe a thousand years ago, you can kind of figure out why there wasn't much "crime", and when there was how it was dealt with. You can also imagine why everyone was okay with helping out a little for the community.
>but is by no means a requirement.
Yes it is.
>The second thing is downright the opossite of what communism is.
No, it's the downright opposite of what most people falsely believe communism is. Most people think communism is about being oppressed by a government or dictator, when it's ironic because it's actually closer to complete anarchy.
>I never ate at this resturant, but I've eaten a steak before. Here's my review.
>I've never been to this hotel, but I saw a commercial on TV. Here's my review
>I never saw this film, but I did hold a camera once. Here's my review
>I've never played this game, but I saw webms on /v/. Here's my review
Who gives a shit about names and labels. It's what the reality of trying to do communism looks like. The "communism" you are dreaming of won't and can't ever exist. It's on par with getting high and saying "dude... it would be great if everyone like, had enough of everything and shit"
By being proprietary software it is freedom-denying and gives unethical control of the users to the owner of said software.
By being proprietary software whose sole purpose is to even further restrict your freedom and only has negative effects, is even more malicious.
These dont apply because piracy lets you try the whole game. Its no different of an experience than playing a purchased copy. Thus people who pirate a game have the right to give a review of it just the same. In fact you just ruined your own argument because most AAA games today don't let you test or look around before you purchase.
Exactly, they were socialists countries.
The logic is that after capitalism, there's a socialist revolution and then Communism.
Why Communism never happened? Because it doesn't work. A economy without private means of production is a economy doomed to fail.
People who critisize capitalism are people who learned capitalism from a marxist point of view, which is incorrect. Those economic problems that we have today are mostly (if not all of them) because goverment makes dumb decisions and they blame "free markets" or something else so they can still make dumb decisions.
>That's how capitalism works in this case and it works fine.
Totally, I mean, since we're talking EA, the people that supported DAO as a the successor od Baldur's Gate it was announced to be by buying and word of mouth totally didn't get fucked backwards when DA2 was released.
The people that thought that they were supporting developers totally totally see it coming when EA fucked Infinity Ward for Modern Warfare 2 anyway.
"Support the company" doesn't work long term for those companies, because all only interested in maximum profit and are not in any way interested in the long term.
If they can fuck you right now they will. Then try to present some excuses and PR the backlash so they can go at it again later on - see the Sims. See Sim City. See Dungeon Keeper cellphone.
That's how capitalism works.
Is there any word from any groups that this is being worked on or any progress towards cracking it?
Not, "It's my opinion that you are incorrect."
You're provably full of shit.
Do you sincerely believe your ignorant opinion changes facts? It doesn't.
>By being proprietary software it is freedom-denying
Motherfucker, the whole gaming industry works because it's proprietary. People don't buy free as in freedom software. You can't make any serious profit by selling free software. Creating games costs money.
You want them holding a video camera to the monitor for 30 minutes of footage to make sure shit can't be doctored?
Even if I post irrefutable evidence that is notarially certified there'll be a million people thinking the claim is fake and people are just buttmad.
>Those economic problems that we have today are mostly (if not all of them) because goverment makes dumb decisions and they blame "free markets" or something else so they can still make dumb decisions.
That's kinda fair when that dumb decision is to let the free market handle it. Oh yeah, sure, let's deregulate, let's privatise, what's the worst that could happen, it's not like we had regulations for a reason.
Piracy rate in Poland in one of the highest in Europe. Almost nobody in Poland buys games. It's a fact. That is why most polish dev studios spend all their money on marketing in the US.
so you got lucky on some stocks and now you think you're "good at life"?
give me a break. wall st is the world's biggest casino. you don't "git gud" by winning big at a slot machine
you know it's just sad there are open source games out there I can download for free, on linux, that are more fun than any game released with your DRM.
>3 games use a retarded encryption system
>PIRACY IS FINISHED!!!
>People don't buy free as in freedom software.
A sever license for RHEL costs hundreds or thousands of dollars to install on one computer. RHEL is still free software though. Ardour is another example of someone making money off selling free software.
>Creating games costs money.
Yes, sometimes the community does make games though and release them for free, expecting no profit. Games like Xonitic or Super Tux Kart.
Why are you shitposting? I sincerely want to understand what drives you to say stupid shit on purpose. To make people mad? I mean, I guess you find it funny? I'll never get it. If you're going to respond with more stupid shit like, "You just can't argue it :^)" don't bother, because I'm not responding to it.
>You can't make any serious profit by selling free software.
You totally can, but not in the current structure. Which most publishers don't want to change. Can't really, by sheer amount of inertia from their size.
But then one terribly disagreeable truth is that a structure for which that could work would be much closer to the game as service model than the game as product.
>Even if I post irrefutable evidence that is notarially certified there'll be a million people thinking the claim is fake and people are just buttmad.
Some evidence is still better than none.
>people can't pirate anymore
>people now pay money for stuff that it's probably not worth paying for
>they pay devs for shit
>devs make more shit because they realize it works
I don't know why people like that.
Pirating before buying is the best you can do.
I would have wasted a lot of money for some shit games.
and they will continue to fail until they succeed.
they only need to succeed once, then what's done is done.
you'd be an idiot to think any software on this planet will never be cracked.
>so you got lucky on some stocks and now you think you're "good at life"?
Yes I am. I'm good at doing this.
Fun fact : people who create W3 threads are the ones who owns CDPR shares.
Thank you, page 20 of a search engine. What's your point? That retards are getting tricked into buying shit games like Unity? Yeah, that's the problem that piracy would help solve.
>people can't pirate denuvo games anymore
>people just keep pirating games that don't use denuvo
>games using denuvo sell like shit
>companies using denuvo die
See you're missing another point: it makes them irate that we can pirate. Which is a fair backlash when it makes us irate that they can fuck us up whenever they want because they hold the production means.
Pirating is not purely an economical endeavor. It's also a politically motivated one. It's a big fuck you message sent back for one received.
"Piracy is mainly a service problem"
>RHEL is not a game.
Good thing I was replying to "People don't buy free as in freedom software", not "People don't buy free as in freedom games".
Newsflash, devs have always made shit for a quick buck and the problem got worse with piracy because everyone had access to the games and only a small fraction would pay for them so devs had pump shit out on a very frequent basis. This way they have to create a customer base that will stick around and pay for their products so they will have to be careful with what they pump out. You might not like it but Denuvo will spring us forth to a new golden age of gaming.
If you ever made a habit of pirating games your opinions on them have been skewed by money from the get-go. Money should have no bearing on your evaluation of a game.
Will there ever be a crack for dragon age guys?
Okay, I don't really know about Poland, but I lived in Latvia on minimum wage when it was still like 250 euros. It's hard to live like that man, buying games isn't even an option.
300-400 is average I think.
>DRM free Witcher sales go through the roof
>CD Projekt make millions selling DRM free games through their service gog.com
>Customers compliment how easy it is to buy and enjoy games
>check pirate bay for gog.com games
>barely anyone pirates them
Why do large corporations hold on to these aging DRM necessitous conventions?
Piracy didn't kill the music industry, piracy didn't kill the film industry and piracy hasn't killed the gaming industry.
>Denuvo will spring us forth to a new golden age of gaming.
No, as i said it already it makes it worse.
Sure, it would be better, if people would buy the games they pirate, if they like it but you can't have everything.
no offense but you don't know shit about native americans if you think there was no crime within a tribe.
don't forget these guys scalped their enemies and would raid other tribes constantly. They also had a very very bad gambling problem.
He's just as bad as everyone in the business. He implement DRM and use Steam Sale to lure out gullible costumers to use his locked down platform and simultaneously destroy the market. When Steam is the one left standing, you'll see jacked up prices like you'll never see before.
Well, that's something you'll have to live with. Plenty of people bought it to support a good developer though and they came out on top despite you being a huge edgemaster. How does that feel?
>devs have always made shit for a quick buck and the problem got worse with piracy because everyone had access to the games
You mean that because people could easily download a game at no risk to see if it was shit, developers made more shit games ?
That's an argument that totally holds water.
If anything, no piracy is the best context for releasing mediocre shit.
>turns out to be uncrackable
>only legit buyers can play

>it must be second hand gaming!

>it must be all those misogynists!
>we should listen to the SJWs and do what they think
Then every AAA game was copy-protection locked, non-transferable, micro-transaction filled, DLC addled, rushed garbage filled with ads with zero internet exposure outside of approved media where every protagonist is a non-binary, pansexual, demiplatonic, omniracial, HAES feminist fighting the patriarchy, just like SJWs said they wanted.
Yet there is nothing more AAA publishers can do, they have run out of money, alienated everyone except SJWs, who don't even buy games anyway, and with no recourse, they liquidate everything and run with the money, leaving games a respite.
Yes protecting the interests of the bigger parts will save capitalism, just like when those in debt had to give their house to the banks thus crashing the house market, yep worked great there.
>any ideas how to attach it?
Best post in the thread so far
Piracy actually benefits the companies.
If your game is good, piracy is going to help spread it, and it's going to give more people than before an opportunity to try it and become a fan of it, who never would have otherwise.
You can make far more money off having one really good popular title that has a strong community behind it, then you can with making some turd with extreme DRM.
Some companies give away games for $0 because they release that getting the largest and most loyal fanbase they can is more lucrative.
Yes, and *I* pirated it, AND I bought it. The two aren't mutually exclusive, however much the DRM supporters want to believe.
The USSR was as much communist as the the USA are the Land of Freedom. Just because you claim something doesn't make it true.
guarantee you both Witcher and GTA will use Denuvo if it remains uncracked by their release dates
Remember these devs aren't the ones making the decisions, if the board of directors or the CEO of a company sees a DRM that is uncracked and a major PC release looming they will go for it
It's not even like this is proprietary DRM like uplay or origin is, it's for sale
>hating on delicious sweet and pure lolis
>calls others homos
Dayum son, I got bad news for you.
Why don't you just delete Denuvo?
So here we are. /v/ really is the shittiest
I don't even want to know if that's posted by a legit retard or at troll, anyway too much idiots fall for it instead of ignoring and saging.
let's go to infinity
>uncrackable DRM appears
>internet starts rallying a boycott against games that use it
>internet starts spreading misinfo about it destroying hard drives
I didn't think you faggots could get any more insufferable and pathetic, but you're managing to do that pretty well so far.
Is having to pay for games, which now commonly go on sale for as low as $10 nowadays, that hard to bear for you? How god damn poor are you? If you're that poor, why do you have all this time to play games you can't afford? Shouldn't you be working harder?
How anti-pirates think pirates thing
>I can't pirate the game?
>BAAAAAAAAWWWWW BETTER GIVE THEM MY HARD EARNED AUTISMBUX
How pirates actually think
>I can't pirate the game?
>Oh well, you win some and lose some. I'll pirate a different game until a crack comes out
>who we work with
Nic is kill
The thing with the slippery slope is that it's not a strict fallacy - it's not a logical, argumentative fallacy: it can be perfectly true and representative of the situation.
If you don't think it is, then you're going to have to try and show why it isn't.
Lords of the fallen isn't even on the steam top seller list.
For a new game you expect it to be there.
>People telling me I can determine if I like a game from videos
>Fell in love with Souls series from LPs and lore discussions here
>Finally get to play it and it controls abysmally to the point where I cant stand it and stop
I mean sure I looked up the controls even, but I didnt know everyone else had such a tolerance for sluggishness and inconsistency. Plus those menus holy shit.
Ever noticed how only THE shittiest developers whine about piracy?
Both AAA and indie.
Could it be that competent developers offering quality product are not afraid? I wonder why? Could it be that even motherfucking pirates can tell their friends or the internet about the game they enjoy?
Could it be that pirates actually help with the marketing of good games? Aren't piracy whiners afraid of the bitter truth about their shitty product by someone without buyer's remorse or paid review?
They needed Batman to be the murderer of Harvey Dent, because otherwise all of the hope the city had just built from the thwarting of the Joker's plans would collapse if they found out the Joker had corrupted the pure, incorruptable White Knight that was Harvey Dent.
The people of Gotham deserved a self-sacrificing hero like Batman, but for the time being, it was in their best interest to make him hated.
It's amusing that proponents of the free market are pro-DRM when intellectual property laws are at their core anti-free market state-enforced regulations and piracy is the epitome of a truly free market of ideas.
It was for over 2 weeks.
Right now it's on 83/100.
The game sells most copies on PS4. Deal with it. Steam is irrelevant. It also doesn't count the number of physical copies sold. I for one prefer buying a physical copy of a SP game.
Joke's on you, EA, a shitload of people just don't trust you anymore. We'd buy your game for the multiplayer if we liked it, but after your recent piles of dogshit, the only people who bought your game are the crazy motherfuckers who just love what you've been shitting out lately. The rest of us look fondly back at DA:O and pray for a proper sequel but wouldn't DARE just buy this game on launch. Not after Dragon Age 2. Not after Mass Effect 3. Not after The Old Republic. Not after Sim City. Not after The Sims 4. You have absolutely no credibility and the only way your games can do well now is if you let us play them for free and find out if they're any good. There's literally no other way.
I hope Denuvo gets cracked right after a big price drop or something so if we like the game we can buy it on discount.
>Theres not even risks involved anymore with the reviews and videos abound.
Did you get permission from your handler to use the computer?
who gives a fuck
/v/ is just a bunch of 13-18 year olds in high school or neet.
they cant afford to buy a £50 game so they pirate shit
dont even use this DRM shit, the truth is you're just mad as fuck you cant afford games to play
i bought DA:I and im having a lot of fun, im glad Bioware got my money because this game is worth what I paid for
fuck off all you retarded children, this site is 18+
god i wish it was 2006 still when /v/ wasnt total shit
some russian site reported that a user reported that it read/wrote over 300 gb of data on his ssd after a couple of hours (with no proof except numbers) which is kind of ridiculous if you understand anything about computers
this was then taken to rpgcodex who used that as a source and then /v/ echoed it
