I have a real fucking problem with modern games. I can't buy them because they are all download-only or require online activation, and I hate that shit. I think it invalidates the whole point of ownership (and if you think it's just buying a "license" that makes it worse, not better). I refuse to do it. I would like to support devs and play some shit, but other than CD Projekt, I don't even know companies that do real physical releases with no online strings attached anymore. If they exist, they're hidden among the mass of "requires Steamworks installed" and "requires online activation".
I'm getting by with piracy of course, but what the fuck do I do? I can't buy games because assholes no longer want to sell them properly.
>I can't buy them because they are all download-only
>I'm getting by with piracy
The problem with modern games is they dont put enough detail in their characters and make them all man-faced mutants. Especially the ass
No. The problem with modern games is that they are increasingly oversexualizing every fucking character in the game rather than concentrating on the gameplay itself in order to sell games to weebs and other degenerates.
Oh, wait. That's Jap devs.
The problem is the PC community itself. They gobble up full priced digital only games and like it. Why would that encourage anyone to waste profit on physical when they can just slap it into their pockets.
>download the game
What the fuck is so hard about that?
Are you saying a game without good gameplay would actually be better without sexualization? That's not how it works tumblrina.
A game is always improved by being sexy. There is almost zero reason to have ugly characters except for comedic relief or something.
>and make them all man-faced mutants
>posts a fucking weeb uguu frogface that doesn't exist in reality
Surely some deep part of your psyche knows how disconnected from reality you are, right?
Why, no, my wonderfully obedient goy. But as you can see, sexually-repressed little boys like you are just so easily distracted by menial things like so that you immediately lose focus on the big picture, as you just so wonderfully demonstrated just now.
>inb4 rights because I think big titty women is pretty ok
>that doesn't exist in reality
>how disconnected from reality you are
Wait, are you telling me video games don't have to follow the rules of reality and you are able to create perfect idealized humans? Tell me more about this concept. Perhaps we should coin a term for it? Fantasy perhaps?
>that doesn't exist in reality
yeah that's right
just as dragons, fantasy races, magic or any kind of science fiction don't exist
maybe all games should be realistic shooters and nothing else
That's not what he said you mong. He didn't argue for a point one way or the other. He's just reiterating that sexualizing things improve a shitty product, and that people recognize that. So making shit "realistically ugly" is fucking stupid when your product is garbage to begin with.
The guy who posted the image was the one complaining about faces, I was responding to that comment.
Re-read the post I was responding to. He called modern dev's females "mutants" and then posted his weeby anime-face as if THAT isn't a mutant. The implication being that a facial structure which is NON-EXISTANT is LESS like a "mutant" when in reality if anyone had those facial proportions that's literally what they'd be.
You're reading something into my post I didn't say. I'm not saying you can't have stylised games, go nuts idgaf. But if you're deluding yourself into thinking that model is more indicative of an archetypal human being than so-called "manface" women in videogames, you ARE disconnected with reality. Just come out and say "the problem with modern games is they don't appeal to my weebish sensibilities." Be honest about it.
Do you not want to fuck a frog or something?
Explanation: A download-only game is literally worth zero dollars ($0.00). If you want your game to be worth something, put it on a disk. Preferably with a nice artbook or something.
My problem exactly.
It used to be, in the golden age of CD keys, that every game was fully playable out of the box, and in those days I did buy a shitload of games. Nobody is selling games like that anymore though, and I do not want to pay money for what I perceive to be incomplete games (games that require online anything or don't have a physical release).
>the hard work the developers put into the game and the entertainment i derive out of said game is worth nothing to me but im perfectly happy paying 60 dollars if i get a plastic disk and some paper with ink on it
No. I already told you I don't give a fuck. I like anime.
But saying more realistic looking women are the "mutants" and your unrealistic looking anime characters aren't is grade-A weeaboo self-delusion.
Fucking weebs always take any criticism as an attack on their weeb lifestyle. Chill out fag no-one's taking away your mangos.
The 60 dollars is payment for said hard work. I want the disk though. And the disk has to work offline. Without that, I don't experience ownership of the game, and don't experience value for my money.
Yeah its a problem especially when companies don't fucking label that their games need 3rd party software to work.
Also it shouldn't even be a thing that its easier to play a pirate version of a game than the bought copy. Customers shouldn't be punished and treated like criminals. Its incredibly pointless.
>if i dont have a 5 cent disk a 20 cent slip of paper and a 15 cent plastic case then the game is worthless to me just cause instead of installing it i must sign in and download it
Think about the environment though.
Digital is very good as long as you're not being screwed over by DRM.
GoG has the right idea, but its too bad that its only for old abandonware games that no one cares about.
Post a picture of a woman with an anime face that isn't achieved through make-up.
Are you trying to imply that your uguu shit image looks anything like the original render?
Not sure what your issue is with download-only.
If it has no activation, you're better off with that than almost anything (like the old copy-protected discs or whatever). Those really have less string attached than anything.
Put it on on one or many discs and just be happy?
>The environment isnt important
Because it makes sense to make millions of plastic cases and Blu rays just to install it on the hard disk anyway right?
Its not like we have internet speeds fast enough that we can get the games faster than driving to the store, right?
>or don't have a physical release
That does not make games unplayable at all.
A downloaded file can be installed or even run right after a download.
Seriously, where is the problem when there is no DRM that interferes with your ability to copy, transfer, sell your license...?
I can link you a pretty nice game (open sauce OpenTTD in this case) right here: http://www.openttd.org/en/download-stable
And it's just not a real problem to deal with this.
i'd say that slight 'imperfection' makes her even hotter looking and hence perfection. That's the reason why I don't like the DOA girls so much. This model looks like it was sculpted from a real college co-ed.
i have never once had any digital distribution service tell me i couldn't download or access a game i had purchased you are living in the past get over this crap im 28 years old and im more tech inclined then you are
no i have never had an issue with steam origin or even uplay its all been smooth sailing infact the only people i have ever heard of having an issue are those caught cheating in an online game and if you do that you DESERVE to lose all your games cheaters CANNOT and WILL NOT be tolerated
At first glance she might seem like your japanese animes but closer inspection reveals the mutant features of the anime style.
Here i've focused on the eyes. They appear much further down the head of the anime girl and take up much more of the face. If you resize the eyes of the real girl so that they take up the same vertical space at the same position as the anime girl you get a frog mutant.
Conclusion: anime not real.
You are lying. As people much cleverer than you have pointed out there have been issues that have affected everyone using the platform.
The chance you are unaffected by an issue on steam or uplay is exactly zero.
Stop lying on the internet and get a job!
>anime girls are real guys ;__;
>if you say they aren't YOU'RE the crazy one
I'll save you some time on your next response and tell you that it only takes ~2 minutes to draw some lines in an image editor between rounds of Sm4sh for people with IQs over 60
i am telling you i have never had an issue personally with any service they hve all been great to me and if i ever did have an issue i would discontinue purchasing immediately just like i no longer shop at kmart cause tat cashier was a complete and total BITCH to me i dont give a fuck if she had a bad day donty take it out on me i am your customer i am a god to you i deserve special treatment cause i am spending my MONEY in your store you stupid cunt
Oh come the fuck on. She's got the torso of a toddler with the hips of five women and perfect tits. It's unrealistic as hell, way more than any DOA girl, and that's a fucking good thing. Normal ain't ideal.
Because you have. You are lying. How does appealing to greater technical knowledge help you when their is a platform bug? it doesn't. Your "expert" technical knowledge won't ward off software bugs you asshat.
You are an underage cretin.
I am not that guy but I have not had any issues with steam in recent years. Steam was terrible the first years it was out just simply not working and forcing you to reinstall. Its quite possible a new users wouldnt run into any trouble.
Let me just open up my fucking folder hey
>im 28 years old and im more tech inclined then you are
Lying again. You know people like you are typically laughed out of technical support forums?
Your asinine "i've never had a problem" comments don't assist anyone and are not constructive because everyone encounters bugs.
To top it off you default to the tired argument of "YOU CHEATER DON'T CHEAT CHEATING IS BAD"
The fuck is wrong with your brain you autistic shit head?
Are you seriously implying the only time people will have an issue with the steam platform is if they cheat?
Maybe I'm blind but she doesn't look too far off from this.
You can samefag or otherwise all you want but comments like
>"ive never had a problem"
are autotrashed by people you know right?
No one listens to the fuck ups that say "ive never had a problem"
I've literally got rid of friends with this attitude I know they are lying.
i never said anything like that why are you so upset? all im saying is i have personally never had an issue with digital distribution how hard is this for you to process? calm down
oh and i dont go to tech support forums cause i cant stand people asking stupid questions or misusing terminology like they tend to on those
Not as much as the shitty trolls that say "ive never had a problem" and all caps CHEATER U CHEATER BANU CHEATER
You do realise this is an argument against distribution software right? Where the customer is made to feel like they have broke the law or a platform rule because they experience inconvenience.
Way to be a dumbass
I'm literally quoting you from this thread you worm.
No. And one more reason is that it takes space to my 3DS space. And with almost the same amount of money (or cheaper if you are lucky to find a great discount) i can buy its retail form.
If you told me that there was a person even more disgusting than papa nurgle, id call you a liar as that is "unrealistic", but the sad truth is that i know such things are far from it. never ever say something is unrealistic in regards to the human body as you will always be wrong. Keep in mind that there are people who are half tree, can live with nails through their brain, eat solid steel and 15 full meals at once, be as tall as your house or as short as a baby, be 5 and look like your grandma or 50 and look like your daughter, be the pinnacle of perfection or a creature of nightmares, its all extremely variable and absolutely amazing. Spend some time learning about humanity before you go and spout some nonsense about a beautiful woman being unrealistic.
i think you legitimately have mental problems you need to see a mind doctor you sound like one of the people on SL that gets pissy when you suggest an issue they are having might be their fault they act just like you getting defensive and angry for no reason i recognize that others might have had problem and that they might be unrelated to cheating but i am speaking from my personal experience here
Posts an alien.
>The eyes. THE EYES OH GOD THEY SEE FOREVER
im saying you have mental problems for your reaction not because you have experienced bugs you strike me as the kind of person who cant accept they might have made a mistake at some point so you rage at everyone else instead
It should be done the other way around. Learn 3d modelling to a high skill level first then sit the quals so you can blitz them leisurely.
I see so many nerds approach things like 3d modelling and go under because they have no skill at it first off.
sorry for the cropping, blame instagram not me
I don't buy western trash, so I don't have to worry about that shit, OP.
Angles are all posing anyway buds
What you are doing is commonly called "gaslighting" Everything you have said in this thread is behaviour a sociopath exhibits.
So who is the mental looney in actual fact?
Being chubby can help with getting the right hips
Visit last gen consoles, plenty of single player games to collect. Funnily enough PS3 has better sp exclusives, and they're like $10. Start with MGS Legacy and Infamous collection.
GoW saga and Jak + Dax hd collection are my recommendations.
>Bitching about online verification or online registration in the entertainment age of technology
Oh man it's so hard to log into a website on my broadband connection boo fucking hoo.
>Getting by with piracy
Welcome to the double edged sword, if piracy wasn't a problem or a possibility what purpose would they have for online verification?
>I can't get internet in my part of the world
Maybe not good enough for playing games that need dedicated connections but fuck Tesla is going to blanket the earth in free internet soon enough so there is literally no reason to bitch about this.
>Complain about internet verification when you have internet good enough to pirate games
I bet you bitch about having to register an email on websites too.
>Welcome to the double edged sword, if piracy wasn't a problem or a possibility what purpose would they have for online verification?
How does verifying actual consumers stop pirates. It just inconveniences the consumer.
Its not needed its draconian and its bad for consumers.
Simple solution: sell physical games with serial codes. Oh wait they used to do this.
Anon, games have been doing online activation on consoles for more than a decade now. For PC, much longer than that.
As for download only, deal with it. You have never owned software in your life. You have only owned licenses for the use of it.
As for piracy, it's your choice. Lots of devs deserve your money, especially companies like CDP. I can't force you to buy them, but there are lots of devs that don't deserve your money. Especially the AAA industry, doubly so for box titles and consoles.
I argue that download only has given us more convenience. Now I have discarded all my ugly game boxes and filled my library shelves with books. I've started reading more because of it as well. My life is much less cluttered with my installed games on a hard drive and a list to download from Steam as I want them. To top it off, I don't look like a loser virgin manbaby. Like a gen-you-eyne high flyin, limousine ridin adult. Woo for that, and woo for digital downloads.
Also downloading and online distribution has strengthened consumer rights groups. With the title II passing through the FCC and so many politicians willing to commit career suicide, America can finally get the fuck out of it's shitty deal with the big telecom. Digital distribution has been at the forefront of reasons for this to succeed.
Alright /v/, what are the best places to modded Skyrim girls? I already know about that one JP site with nips modding Skyrim. I'm not about to spend my time pirating Skyrim and then downloading everything to make asses look that good.
>consumer rights groups
>fighting for your rights as a consumer with more support due to consumer rights being more of an issue
>consumer rights thus strengthened by the increased activity of consumers upholding their rights
neither are you.
For someone that claims to know what they are talking about you seem to be unaware that for years now the fine print on games clearly states you DON"T OWN ANYTHING with online distribution.
You literally have no rights in some cases.
>for years now
They have been doing it since games were a thing. Despite having the original floppies, i dont own doom, i own the right to use the software in a very limited and well defined way.
I wasn't expecting the up next tob keg
Not true back when physical copies were widely used you owned the physical copy and the software on it as a consumer.
Digital content is logical not held to the same standards as physical copies of software.
This is how platforms like Steam get away with their "no refunds" crap for years even violating laws and their own rules on it.
This is a redundant statement. The consumer doesn't own Doom. ID owns doom. You own the copy of Doom you bought though.
With digital content you don't own anything and your "right" to use the software can be taken away when ever the company feels like it.
I'm white/maybe a bit jewish
I've got pictures of women of all shapes and sizes
Post the worst shape and the worst size.
>post the subjective shape and size
fuck man I don't even know
I just save stuff that makes my dick feel good
You have never owned software. You have only ever had a limited use license to use the software in ways defined by the creator.
The same applies with your physical copies. You only ever saw it happen with online titles. Counter Strike was mostly online and if your CD-key got banned from the master server, your box copy let you play the tutorial level and that was it.
Same went for Starcraft and other popular online multiplayer titles. You would only have access to the single player game until you got a new CD-Key if you got banned.
Now your claims of having your license to play a game being revoked for no reason is just unfounded alarmism. If a dev started doing that for no reason at all, they'd get blown the fuck out by /v/.
We haven't blown any devs the fuck out yet.
So don't be a shitty faggot and get banned from multiplayer.
It doesn't you are mistaken.
>Counter Strike was mostly online and if your CD-key got banned from the master server, your box copy let you play the tutorial level and that was it.
This is a completely different issue.
>You have never owned software.
This is incorrect. If you are going to continually appeal to the fact you don't the software as in you are not the creator of it. You are an idiot.
>So don't be a shitty faggot and get banned from multiplayer.
Wow so reading through your entire post you just reveal you are the same underage autistic troll that has been spamming "don't cheat and get banned in multiplayer"
As if this is the ONLY thing that matters with online distribution.
What about single players games you retard?
No, it's the same issue. You're worried about a dev taking away your ability to play a game. A CD-Key ban did the same thing. Devs only ever revoke a CD-Key for the purpose of a multiplayer ban, in our current sphere.
If a dev were to just take away a CD-Key from a lawfully purchasing customer (read: not from shitty third world key resellers) with no identifiable purchase, their assholes would be fucked so thoroughly that a whole new SVU gamer episode would be made.
Not even trolling. You are being a misinforming alarmist. You are arguing with the same strategies that /pol/ uses. You have never owned software, no one would ever be banned after purchasing a title for no reason, and if it happens, the internet will fuck that person hard, then the law will get sloppy seconds.
You are a fag.
you own the license wich you can also resell. Effectively you owned a copy of the software on some disc + the license to use it.
Today you have a license but the software is behind online drm. If the server dies you're shit out of luck.
Lastly there is software you fully own - it's the open source kind.
I came back 3 hours later after downloading OP's image and there STILL isn't anymore Skyrim modded ass?
The fuck is wrong with you faggots?
Reselling is the only real difference. If more online distributors allowed for the reselling of licenses, that would be a thing. However, reselling was always seen as a bane of software developers of all kinds. So you will not see that return in an online format.
As for the servers dying, you have electronic receipts for every purchase in your email. If the servers go down, pirate it. Or contact the game dev and ask for an alternate way to install. If a service like Steam goes down, and if Gabe doesn't make good on his promises for contingency, any reasonable dev will provide you with alternate ways to get their game. No country would ever pursue charges of piracy for a legitimate customer. Heck, most countries let you use pirate services to create backups of software you own.
Open source software is also a whole different ballpark and you know that's moving the goalposts. We're talking about proprietary software, like what most of the industry uses.
