And they're probably making the piracy problem for this particular game much, much worse.

On the LOL UNITED front of things, god damn were both Madrid goals so sick. Or should I say all 3?

Also, it's good to know that Seth is alive. I started to think he was hanging out north of The Wall with MEbenhoe or something.

this. Thread was pretty unbearable a few years ago but many of those posters are gone (fatshaft, disturbance, to name a few) but the thread is and has been pretty good for the past few years. Self policing FTW.

Das Boot would be a good mod tho

I hardly ever play video games so I'm definitely out of touch with them, but goddamn the way that SimCity is set up would infuriate me. You literally cannot play the game in single-player mode unless you are online?

The trend toward online-only games gets my jimmies rustled as well. The thing that sets my rustle status to max is the freemium model of games. FFS, just let me buy the game at a set price and be done with it.

Self policing seems to work although it means occasional stupidity never gets a ban. Wouldn't mind being modded for a few days to perma a few clowns. Mod on rotation FTW

Yep, this game will be cracked in some workable version in a few months at most. Then all the suckers customers that paid for it will be the ones who hurt.

I would think this is probably hugely true, especially because there is an idiotic notion that every dollar "lost" to piracy is truly lost. It's not even close. I haven't bought SimCity! and have no plans to. If I download a cracked version, they've probably lost $6 Sklansky dollars (the 1/10 chance I'd have bought this on a whim at some point) but certainly not $60

DLC has just been horribly mismanaged from the viewpoint of the consumer. Instead of releasing games that are well-made and charging for updates/add-ons as they are developed, they release poorly made, heavily bugged and/or limited games and then charge for things that clearly are part of the "whole concept" of the game and could've been released as one unit.

Maximum over-rustle indeed.

I'm not 100% certain on what is or will be done, but my understanding is that the online aspects allow 3 things:

1) DRM
2) Resource sharing via the global marketplace (actually should be a pretty cool idea if EA doesn't **** it up
3) Allows for multi-player and "Great Works" to be build

Pirated versions very likely will be adapted to save game data locally so you won't be able to play with friends (barring your own server or language to host on one of your computers, which will almost certainly come along) and you won't be able to access the online marketplace.

But yeah, I would think, as with other cracked games in the past, you would be able to play locally and not be a slave to EA.

Sim city update: the game itself isn't bad I suppose. The tiny maps are absolutely ridiculous though. I get the point of wanting to have a cooperative region but my ****ing god this is stupid

As someone who's actually played it: Is the entire region basically just your city but broken into "districts" or are the so segregated they're truly different cities?

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog & FREE MONEY!!!

Looks like a player on the Montreal Canadiens will come out as gay at some point this week, making him the first openly gay athlete in a big north american sport (lol hockey, etc.)

Is this thread worthy?

Pros: Interesting topic
Cons: lol hockey + 99% chance the thread will devolve into politarding/religiontarding/AIDS

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog & FREE MONEY!!!

Good for him. I think, as in any major sport, a player that comes out will be met with tons of public acceptance and some smaller, but probably pretty loud, objection. Really curious to see how the players handle it.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog & FREE MONEY!!!

In a less than cool story bro, I got my old Razr V3(??) back a few minutes ago. I think 2007 maybe 2008 was the last time I had it in my possession. The micro SD card that was in it was 64 MB. It's insane how quick it seems things advanced. 32GB micro sd's are like $30 or less on sale sometimes.

72off is a ghost as well so might not sure what the hold up is, everyone knows das boot will end up a mod eventually and it would be good to have one regular poster be a mod in the soccer threads.
Fwiw, I'm completely fine with this suggestion. IRL has gotten way in the way of 2p2 time for me. I have no idea why DB would agree to do it though.
