And i'm blocking Windows 10 from my Windows 7 Updates
not needed to pirate a game for years. All you need is a good job.
Agreed partially, I use torrents to check if a game is worth buying, a demo if you want
90% are cr4p - and saved me a lot of cash
That's not an excuse. You are still pirating the game.
Matters not the name, if devs won't release a demo, I will use torrents to test - otherwise they are worse than pirates by forcing you to pay for sh1t
The new refund on steam is a good thing though
This x1000. I earn enough to buy all the games I want but that doesn't mean I need to waste my cash on a stinking pile of $hit
LoL. I used to pirate games back in 1985 when they were worth pirating. Nowadays in 2015 i wouldn't even waste my bandwidth or time pirating anything cause the majority of it is ****.
With me I pirate old dos and windows games because no one cares about those games and some of those games are hard to find. And it would be impossible for MS to find out if those games were pirated.
I don't really care about your opinion on the matter. I just recently downloaded ARK to see if I was able to run it on my system. After playing the single player for a couple of days I was happy with it and bought it. Maybe if developers would offer demos and trials like they used to with PC games then pirating wouldn't be an issue.
I have a no cd hack on my external hdd. Just today windows defender told me I had unauthorized software on my pc. It automatically quarantined it but I allowed it. Of course I have since disabled it checking my external drive for viruses etc. So my guess is its just these types of things that they will be using for this, doesn't seem like a big deal and or easy to get around
Well, I do not pirate games, but I buy very few games too in contrast to times when demos were common.
I buy only when I think it is really good game and worth it.
But I support people who get pirated copy for testing. Because while you can accuse them from stealing, they are actually preventing companies to steal from them.
If statistically someone tells you that 90% of games he tries are bad and will not buy&play, then it is like purchasing 10 cars with 0 warranty knowing that 9 out of 10 will be defunct.
Only dimwit would in such scenario go blindly and buy them.
And just fyi, buying game based on trailer which does not even contains gameplay is like being victim of phishing.
Because that's how game sales are now, throw trailer to peoples faces around internet and someone is bound to get caught. It is just statistics, same as phishing.
Defender has been doing that since it came out and so have plenty of other anti virus's
i simply exclude my game and download folders from being auto scanned
i agree and desagree at the same time...
-yes what you email to your GF or what is your last pizza is a monetable data (have worked on data like this for a big cash and carry brand) and it is very lucrative data... but not only M$ spy to this, Alphabet (google lol) do it better, and even people give this data for free, (FB, survey after bough a thing, etc...).
-is it important? yes if you care and no if you accept to live in a world where everything is monetable (unless you have to live as a caveman... and even there google world can spy your ass when you go to wash in the river ).
well... we weren't under your bed but as your neighbourg . and you have done the same in our land. but as Sting have writen in a song we are the same, this is positive despite the human nature.
my GF (my little poney game is her favorite right now... W10 for that lol) and the comptability, and a lot of people...
i don't of course (linux user on my main computer)
When it comes to Piracy, I am always reminded of a short from Amazon Women on the Moon:
Change "Video" to Game" and we're in business:
Maybe steam ought to let people download games for free and lock them to 1 or 2 hour 'play time' and allow them to purchase the game if they like it or delete if they don't!
This is my favourite scene from that movie...
