GS News - Snoop Dogg in Call of Duty; Sony Sells $49m Square Enix Stake
Square-Enix defends DRM, Sony drops their 9.52 MILLION shares in the Final Fantasy company, and $3 will get you Snoop Dogg in Call of Duty: Ghosts!
DRM treats customers like criminals, and I will NEVER give a dime to anyone who does so. Think about how frequently we hear "this should be free" these days. Pirates don't even say that, they've already bootlegged it. Look at the success of Kickstarter, clearly people will pay if the product is worthy. The issue isn't piracy, it's that many companies want to profit from shovelware and lazy sequels rather than make games worth buying.
DRM is a hassle for costumers who actually buy games and people who want to play it for free will do so anyway, DRM or not, can't believe publishers haven't figured that one out by now
We need Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill
Nothing like Batman giving us instructions and Joker taunting us when we're losing!
I'm looking forward to tomorrow's GS News, Chris Watters is such an amazing host. He should get his own Call of Duty DLC :D
Have fantastic holidays, Jess, eat lots of chocolate eggs and bunnies! More importantly, take the time to play the games you enjoy :)
"it's hip and hood" yea snoop, let me know how hip/hood it is when you've been to afghan or Iraq.
now, voice over D.I. from FMJ, now that makes sense
There should be a DLC where it'd be Jess herself calling the shots with quotes like :"PANDA AMAZING" when on a killing spree or "BALLS BALLS BALLS!!!" when you get killed...
I don't like how DRM prevents me from loaning e-books, but until they come up with a better way to fight piracy it's here to stay.
My thoughts on DRM: It gets hacked. Usually quite easily and quite quickly. So absolutely NO piracy is avoided but now the publishers have incurred extra development costs into dedicating resources into DRM, which get passed down to their customers. Moreover, their legitimate customers who actually paid for the product now have to deal with this DRM while those with illegitimately obtained copies actually get the better user experience overall. Seems like a completely flawed system to me created mostly to appease the irrational fears of shareholders with no real benefits.
Other gaming news today:
Trials Fusion was released.
Broken Sword 5 Episode 2 was released.
And I finished ME3 with the extended ending cut and I loved it.... :P
I don't know what's so "hood" about playing call of duty but whatever... If you want some gansta rappa, turned pop-artist, turned reggae artist, turned actor do voices for your kills more power to ya.
Man, how the times change people... sometimes for the worst. :/ *looks at Kanye*
@jmsk248 Uh, I'm pretty sure it's Dilly Wee Billiams.
@dani_i89 "I upgrade RPG for make dead enemies of glorious nation of Kazakhstan!"
Yeah, that would be awesome.
@dani_i89 Digital Rights Management, like a game requires you to be online in order to be able to play non-multiplayer modes.
@Silv3rSt0rm82 Well that's what mods are for. PC master race. 10 GB download of uncompressed audio.
@feleas I don't think that little charade lasted very long.
Is it important to even remember his current aliases?
@IamTakkun "If you're looking for trouble, you've found it."
@aci808 I wouldn't mind if Jess accidentally smothered you. (wait, did I type that? But thats not the kind of thing that you comment, darn it)
I also finished replaying ME3 a few days ago and the revised ending cut scene does make more sense. Still somewhat of a bummer your character has to die, Fallout 3 people got upset about it and they actually changed the ending.
@icandypictures why else would I say it...
@waelse1 Shep doesn't have to die.... ;)
Thanks! I binged and see one of the endings (destroying machines) lets Shepherd live now. I'll give that a try.
