A fitting retort, especially since I didn't name you, yet you disignated yourself as guilty and replied. You were correct in thinking you are the guilty party. However, let me warn you to please keep on topic in the future.
DRM only hurt legitimate customers by breaking the content or making it difficult to use.
i say burn em all!!!!!!
I'm curious, does this involve actually buying a copy of the bits in question, or just showing your middle finger and a hard nose?
I'd like to add a fourth, as I've actually seen this group mentioned in scholarly studies:
4) Super-consumers: Buy tons of bytes, but steal a good bit of it too. They've heard it, seen it and played it; even if they had to pry it out of George Lucas' hands.
That'll a BIG FAT +1 from me on that
not to mention extortionate prices new games here in NZ cost between $95 and $115 bucks, add to that the always on Internet connection you must have to even play single player which will cost you $70 per month, and any fee's they charge to play on their servers and you can see where I'm going.... Just how much am I expected to keep paying to play something I already payed for
Don't forget the DLCs. Very few of those aren't rip offs.
DLC = stuff that should have been in the initial release but was held back to keep you hooked for longer
yea but with DLCs you don't have to pay for it. Also, a lot of DLC is developed after the game is released. Funny about all the complaining but kids will still buy games. Bunch of whiners.
I've seen some that you do take diablo II the DLC for that was Lord of destruction that cost almost as much as the original and added frag all to the game
Lord of Destruction was an Expansion, not DLC.
LoD was necessity in my opinion. after playing i had to replace it twice (due to my own negligence) because i couldn't play vanilla d2 anymore without it. and not for mp, but simply because of the additional characters and chest, act, etc.
expansion or DLC same frigging thing just a different name
Almost, but not quite.
An expansion pack, in this case Diablo II: LoD retailed for probably $20 cheaper than the core game. A new campaign beyond
killing Diablo (Love the gratuitous use of spoiler tags?)
which included new environments, weapons, enemies and 2 new classes.
DLC, in this case Civilization V adds one, maybe two new civilizations to play as and probably a new map as well. They sell for $5 each, which when you add up all of it comes out to be quite a bit more money for what you would have gotten with a full expansion.
actually, no. if you weren't around for real expansions i can understand your misconception. it's only recently that they have been lumped together.
Separate names with a comma.
