  1. People who don't believe in paying for software...

    People who don't believe in paying for software are not a niche market - they aren't a market period because they won't pay for it. They are probably more than capable of comprehending the effort...
  2. Steam is the ultimate in showing that DRM works,...

    Steam is the ultimate in showing that DRM works, and not only works but can be loved and demanded by the gaming community. All the hate directed at Origin was exactly what Steam went through when it...

    I think everybody else answered this but yeah, I was going to say that without tangible benefits that artist isn't going to eat. Instead they'll be investing a lot of time into doing something else...

    U WOT M8? FITE ME 1v1 an gt #rekt


    I started and gave up. Perhaps I will start again.

    They can have their separate thread where they don't venture outside their strict, narrow definition of 'on topic' while the rest of us tear at each other's flesh with our razor sharp teeth powered...

    Any of the 'game diaries' are my favourites. The one on Minecraft was what prompted me to read RPS.

    I'm from the east coast of Australia, we forget there's anything past the border of the eastern states.

    Don't tell me what to do! You're not the boss of me!

    It's a pretty flimsy premise from a developer who fully admits he just got into indie game development earlier this year.

    Also he's from Adelaide, and I've never met anybody I've trusted from...

    Gonna side with Mouton this way - we can have our cake and eat it too with threaded forums. Those of us (like me) who like to argue for the sake of it can have our tangents, while those who want to...

    For much of the time though it simply wasn't practical to scan and print them. Today though magazine piracy is still definitely around - it's just that the people who would actually bother ripping...
  12. I agree with you that, at least from my...

    I agree with you that, at least from my perspective, there was no acceptable justification. But there was a reason for the war - it's just that it was a bad one and something I'd consider invalid....

    The US capitalised on the hate generated by 9/11 to justify an invasion of Iraq as if it was a threat to national security.

    You're actually asking me two different questions. One question is: How...

    You do realise that saying "piracy is not theft, it's copyright infringement" is not the same as saying "piracy is not wrong", right?
  15. Well actually it is, because theft and copyright...

    Well actually it is, because theft and copyright infringement are totally different crimes and demand different penalties. If I've stolen my copy from you by downloading it, then I'm responsible for...
  16. I don't think WW2 was a flimsy justification....

    I don't think WW2 was a flimsy justification. Arguably WW1 wasn't either - it's just that no side was the clear 'good guy' unlike WW2 where the atrocious war crimes of the Axis Powers pretty firmly...

    The war from 2003 was a flow-on from the invasion of Afghanistan, which was prompted by the events of 9/11. A major terrorist attack that killed a hell of a lot of people is a pretty good casus...

    Exactly. The Steam Forums (and SPUF before the current ones) are 90% bullshit, with 10% useful data. If the game doesn't work exactly as expected, the first response is to raaaaaaaaaage on the Steam...

    It's worth noting that the article is about piracy of many different kinds of media - including TV and movie media. Part of the reason for that is that we have fairly limited access to it over here....

    I've already mentioned this in my previous posts - although issuing demands following the end of the war is hardly diplomacy.


    Cause? No, but definitely contributed, it formed part of Hitler's...
  21. BadManiac is right though - piracy is not theft....

    BadManiac is right though - piracy is not theft. It can't be theft by the definition of theft - deprivation of a potential sale is not the same as me physically taking goods (or converting them) from...

    Okay then, I concur that the intervention in the middle east has largely been pointless and a failure. Just the vibe I got from all of this was that war is invariably wrong and the pen is always...

    IMO it's not going to be good for FPS games at all - the few hands-on videos I've seen show that they're still pretty clumsy. Nobody plays FPS games with a touchpad - it's a load of repetitive...

    I have a friend who is exactly like that. Well he used to be, not sure if he still does it or not, but he'd pirate just about every major release and have them sitting there. He never played them,...

    I disagree - and Australia's similar to Canada in that we've very rarely come under direct threat of invasion and have therefore been 'insulated' from war (if that's what you're suggesting). The...
