    Here we can discuss about piracy etc.

  2. Re: Discussions about piracy

    Remember in the "What's your home page?" thread how I said I'd look at how many copies of 'Mirror's Edge' were sold on the PC (at my work)? Well....

    There were a total of 0 copies sold for the PC... HOW MUCH OF AN EPIC FAIL IS THAT?!?! Where as for the consoles we've sold loads.

    To me piracy is something that I would have done when I was younger because I couldn't afford anything (and even then I used open source stuff most of the time) - but now that I'm at work and have some money I feel that if I want something then I should pay for it.

    Take my Anime for example: I pay a subscription fee to http://www.crunchyroll.com/ and get the anime that I want to watch every week -- the small amount that I pay is well worth keeping the developers in business.

    As for games: I will usually borrow a game from work and if I think that it's worth owning then I will buy it -- if I didn't work in a games store then I'd use an online rental service to have a trial run of my games.

    @Savage, *cough*

    I pirate shit to use it as a demo, because 3/4 of the times, the official demo is nothing like the end game/program, if I like it I buy it in the end, if I hate it, I hate it and let it rot in hell.

    open source FTW. alot better, cleaner and free. no crack shitz or trojan detected(but ignore it)! :aaaaa:

    also I used to warez alot for 1 year or so, but it just a waste of time.

    I only download tv shows cos i cant wait forever more for it to come in UK.

    -games, those games that has no demo. i download it to try. even though I always end up buying them.

    -movies, i rent them on tesco dvd rentals, unlimited DVDs/Blu Ray per month for £11. :cool:

    Borrowing movies and copying them FTW ^^ as for games, I tend to just buy them pretty much everytime. I don't even look at games that don't seem interesting to me so it's kinda straight forward (robbie <3 game -> robbie buys game)

  7. Re: Discussions about piracy

    I hate graphics whores.
    I'm downloading and watching anime first, then eventually buying it if I enjoyed it.

    I've already bought The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya. Now it's time to buy School Days, Kanon (2006) and Clannad. :P

    Nearly 14 here, dont expect to be making any good money for a while, so I spend what little I have on a RapidShare premium account, and along with warez-bb = win.

    I still do buy some stuff to support it.. Bought The Sims 3 (Which was a mistake, it sucked ass) I buy other games also, some CD's etc.. I'm not a 100% pirate.. But I do it regulary, downloading random music and tv shows and stuff.

    Fail - I'm just searching for an app now to warez :P

    All these guys that say about how you TRY the product, by downloading, is a load of crap. You know as well as I that you don't purchase the software or game - unless you want to play online.

    I generally don't pirate anything, hell I even download the TRIALS for Adobe software. I use spotify for music - I don't listen to much on the go really - prefer the radio. I buy all my games through Steam and play.com or GAME, when I have the money. I really don't watch many movies, if I go to the cinema I'll only watch it the one time - never buy the movie or download it.

    This was not a holier than thou post either.

    Re: Discussions about piracy

    Ye, saw this last day posted in a german forum .... what a stupid idiot ^^

    Here what they have written:

    I've got a problem when it's time to use Batman's glide in the game. When I hold <Space> , like it's said to jump from one platform to another, Batman tries to open his wings again and again instead of gliding. So he fels down in a poisoning gas. If somebody could tel me, what should I do there.

    Henke123 :
    Try buying the game.

    There is no poison gas in the demo and the game has not been released on PC yet.

    What Henke said.

    The problem you have encountered is a hook in the copy protection, to catch out people who try and download cracked versions of the game for free.

    It's not a bug in the game's code, it's a bug in your moral code.


    So much fail ......

    Anyways: Leeching is evil, no more comment.
