    Surprisingly.. YOU can Download FALLOUT 3, New Vegas, and all the PC Versions for Free and there is No Issue What So Ever.. Does this mean Bethesda removed Breakable Weaponry and Clothing in FALLOUT 4 because they Just Don't Care? - Hey Great Video Overall 👍!!

    There should be a second vid of this, as I know of a couple more games with some pretty great ones. There is a minor one in Sims 3, where dragon eggs don't hatch if you rip a copy of Dragon Isle.

    My idea for an anti-piracy measure: when you click "Play", the menu screen glitches up and the game transforms into a childish, crudely made edutainment minigame, which simulates an ethics class about not stealing. Who would like to go into buisness with me?

    Piracy is justified unless a demo of the game exists IMO, the very majority of people who pirate games do it to test the game in the absence of a demo. People who play pirated games legitimately can die, tho.

    And that's why almost every game now is a multiplayer game with no deep stories or playthroughs, not mentioned the high prices of games as a result of the piracy.

    There should be more games with these anti-pirate measures, though being forced to use discs to play games or be forced to have a stable internet connection is not the way. People who wear-out discs from over playing get somewhat annoyed when the discs need to be replaced. I'm sure everyone knows what I mean. It is nice to have a game, but to play a game to death is a bit much. Such as my CnC3KW disc, I have worn it out (5 physical cracks on the disc, preventing it from running), but to get a new copy anywhere is impossible unless you want to spend £20 or more. Not so bad, but for the fact the same game is only £7.99 in Origin store and the only way to purchase the disc is via online (the whole point of not using an online retailer is to not have the hindrance of putting sensitive information into a PC). What is everyone else's opinion?

    You can't steal something designed to steal your money. It's called justice aka fuck you to P2W, DLCs, microtransactions and subscriptions. I can't remember the last game that wasn't a rip off asides from POE. Fuck all of you who take pity on greedy devs.

    That with the Self destruct Units in RA2 if you use a pirated Copy isn't SO true.
    Yes they will do it, but not because it was pirated, but because you used a wrong registration code or have made an error there, for example put in a B insted of a eight.
    That have the same effect as is described here.

    So I think it hase more to do with a legal Code, insted of using a hacked Version.

    That's fine and all though it really sucks when the DRM stuff hampers players who buy the game... especially so when there was all that always on DRM which sometimes was unstable or unresponsive and was a real pain to deal with.... well at least the pirates had the luxury of not having to deal with it once they were able to get the game to run without the intrusive and annoying DRM

    Well luckily I only played one game which had annoying DRM which was heroes 6 and it at least got better

    If I were a game developer, I would make it so that pirated copies have all the levels in reverse: hitting the thief right away with what was supposed to be the final boss battle, and then finishing with the tutorial level. When the players inevitably couldn't get past this "first" level, a condescending error message would pop up--something along the lines of "Aww, is this game too hard for you? Well, maybe you should've thought about that before you pirated it, ya moron!"

    I got an idea.
    The game starts you off with a pirate hat and a flintlock, instead of whatever its supposed to be.
    You will be able to play until the tutorial character sees you and just straight up shoots you.
    Then the game is deleted from your computer and you must try to pirate it again to get the same results.

  • Fear Induced
    Fear Induced 29 дней назад

    Things like this don't happen unless the company who made the game uploaded their, "Anti-Piracy" version of the game to a website for downloading pirated games, and you happen to choose that one. You can just delete it and find a different up-loader from that website other than the original up-loader you got it from. Unless the company finds you specifically playing their game cracked, and basically hacks your computer to upload modified files to your game without your consent. Then again, you can just disconnect from the internet before playing. There's a lot of these videos I find on YouTube, where they act like companies have full access and knowledge to who pirated their game..... They really don't. It's not like their standing there talking to each other at there development studio, when all of the sudden their computer goes, "Beep beep", and they go, "Oh, looks like we better screw with them for illegally downloading our game".

    Actually, stealing or not (stealing = "taking from other the good that other did not want to give to you, while depriving them of this good"), I think we all would agree that copyright infringement is STILL "taking from others what others did NOT give to you by their own good will". Depriving them it may be not; non-consensual taking from others it still IS, and from karmic perspective, it is still misconduct.

    Meanwhile in the 90's, iD Software encourages people to share and copy as many copies of Doom as possible. -- Anyways I don't see a problem with pirating games, I mean people who pirate games either ain't going to buy the game anyways or use it to test if the game is worth paying for anyways. You know, like a demo, so you won't pay for something that is marketed but pay for what the game actually is.

    What most people don't really know is that ORGINAL games on most third world countries cost a SHITON more money that in EE.UU, Japan or most EU countries, for example, in my coutry (Argentina) every dolar cost almost 20 times my national currency (argentine pesos). Imagene a game like CSGO ten times is base dolar price... even with discounts it's a lot of money for us.
