Re: General Gaming Discussion

In my new PS3 there was a music CD in there labeled "Workouts".

It had 8 tracks, all of them were the Rick-Roll song.

Well done.

So glad I just switched to PC gaming.

when the new consoles come out, I'll be upgrading my motherboard and graphics card instead then. lol
I'm not worried at all man. I mainly use my PS3 for blu ray and the majority of games I rock on the 360.


Also I was wondering since the rumors that the next consoles want play used games would I still be able to use Gamefly to rent games?

No you wont. Just like you cant play games online, which have an online code, if you rent or borrow.

Anyhow, this will go one of two ways. Due to not being able to resell games, game developers will have to compete like they do on Steam, to sell their games. Thus we will have lower prices.

The second way, people turn to PC because in the end they can get the majority of console games on Steam cheaper and actually play the games without an internet source.

Re: General Gaming Discussion

Have you guys been paying attention to the Valve lawsuits in Germany? This is the 3rd time (other two times the lawsuits failed) that they are being sued because of digital downloading on Steam. Some shitty consumer group keeps claiming its illegal to not let the people who download the games...resell them. Its completely back asswards and through the years and the several lawsuits they've shown a complete ineptitude and understanding of what they are fighting for and just come off ass "down with big business! we the people!" retarded shit. But I can honestly see M$ and Sony getting hit with a ton of stuff like that but about monopolizing the industry away and not letting retailers or specialty stores/rental places have their cut.

I know we all hate the idea of digital only games or always online, but to major publishers like EA, Capcom, Squeenix and even M$ and Sony, that is the dream. That is the goal they want. Where DRM is so inescapable that there are no illegal downloading, hacking, etc. and where everything is digital and they still own ALL rights to the game you "purchased". So if a time comes where you try and "sell" a used game, they can just say "nope you don't own it, we do, so....delete!" and you don't have the game anymore, period.

Edit: Riot, good thoughts, but one flaw. If they don't want their games on Steam, they won't let them sell it. Like EA. They created Origin so they could make their own rules and make it so you HAVE to always have an internet connection (i.e. always-on DRM). The only place to buy an EA PC game digitally is either through Origin or through a retailer/website with a download code...to only play it through Origin.

Yup.

Re: General Gaming Discussion

Those who file lawsuits against Steam are retarded. You are not buying a game from Steam, you are buying a licence to play a game. You can not sell any licence of any form. Not a marriage licence,a drivers licence, an alcohol licence, or a game licence.

As much as I love Steam, this does piss me off. I used to own games.

Re: General Gaming Discussion

Steam is fine. Don't be mad at them for giving you amazing deals and easy to use everything.

Its places like EA's Origin that should get your anger.

Edit: Meaning, if you get banned from Steam for whatever reason, if you have them downloaded, you don't need to client to play them if you have them already.

Re: General Gaming Discussion

I'm not mad at Steam, or even Origin, really. There's just a creeping sense of dread attached to any of these online-activation/DRM services. I can pull out a game from the mid-90s and with a slight bit of fiddling to get it running on a 64-bit system, I can play it happily. 20 years from now, will Steamworks or Origin games still install? The sale prices seem like something of a trade-off for that, I guess.
