This think is like a bad movie where the killer keeps coming back to life in the next sequel.
I dunno if John Walker should be flattered that you think him a leader of a popular movement or insulted that you think it's really just him complaining about all this.
Redox, we don't really care...
All times I have enjoyed greatly, have suffered greatly, both with those that loved me, and alone.
See also all the various scaremongering DRM posts.
If that somehow results in people losing their jobs it's sad for them, but it's not really my concern, as a consumer.
Snatching defeat from the jaws of victory since 1982.
No! We must comply with our corporate overlords, and be grateful for their cruelty!
Edit: Imagine this in allcaps.
Yup, it's definitely that people are stupid except those who agree with you, and not that it's perfectly possible for people to value consequences differently.
I never insinuated in my posts that anyone was stupid, merely that John should probably spend some time researching DRM and EULA issues before writing incredibly inflammatory posts about them.
Thousands of people read his words, he owes it to them, to himself and to the industry to not make mistakes that can completely ruin people's lives.
Thanks for keeping this bumped to raise awareness, all =)
Wot I Think: The Game : an ongoing collaborative game-design experiment / comedic disaster here on the RPS Forums!
Kata vs. Kata : a game of simultaneous round-based predictive martial arts (like frozen synapse, but with punches)
My Games on Kongregate : "computainments" for your world wide web experience
Yup, it's definitely that people haven't done their research, except those who agree with you, and not that it's perfectly possible for people to value consequences differently.
Back to topic, ACTA does indeed look bad. Let's hope it meets the same fate SOPA/PIPA did.

Buying games you aren't going to play is a waste of money (no matter how cheap they are). Forcing yourself to play games you wish you hadn't bought is a waste of time. Both are best avoided.
