    Star Wars Outlaws

    Congratulations on hitting every single dumb talking point that ever came out of the mouth of an activist. "It's not happening, but it is totally to prevent you from spanking" I have to ask, do you often spank it to video game characters? Why is it always the activists and their supporters who...

    Star Wars Outlaws

    They have been doing that for 10 years now at western game devs. I'm sick of it, but especially the gaslighting about it claiming it is not intentional "you just don't understand how game development works"

    Star Wars Outlaws

    I'm pretty sure it will have microtransactions that early access reviewers won't be allowed to talk about under NDA.

    Star Wars Outlaws

    The game doesn't feel like Star Wars, despite all the key jangling. And they gave her a double mastectomy.

    Ubisoft's The Crew is shutting down 31st March 2024 and will be unplayable after that because it is online only.

    Now you are just coping. I explained why they can't possibly be legally binding, try reading and addressing those points, because I'm not going to repeat myself. The purchase is the contract. When you buy something you enter into a contract, even if there is no specific terms documented on...

    Ah, nobody of consequence only the ones in charge of their cash flow... Sorry, I don't think class actions are a thing here. Consumer disputes are handled by organizations like the ECC on a case by case basis.

    Ubisoft's The Crew is shutting down 31st March 2024 and will be unplayable after that because it is online only.

    No they aren't, read the post above. That's what they want you to believe, but you entered into the contract when you purchased the game, they can't change the terms later. The only terms I can legally agree to is what I was aware of at the time of purchase. Anything that is only revealed to me...

    EULA's are not legally binding, they are basically toilet paper in an actual court here in the EU. It's just another way to make you fall in line and do nothing out of fear because the EULA said so. It is nothing but a strongarming tactic. It doesn't have to be legally binding, people just have...

    Actually yours are, and not just a little. If you sell a product that depends on some sort of online service then you are obligated to provide that service. The company I work for is actually in one such contract, because someone made a bad deal 10 years ago, so we must continue to provide...

    People want to label everything they dislike with the buzzword they hate the most or heard last these days. But globalism has nothing to do with ownership. Even calling it feudalism is a big stretch as feudalism describes more the social structure rather than commerce. Under feudalism peasants...

    Owning what you bought is actually very capitalist. You'll own nothing and be happy is more in line with taking away games after a while, and usually people call that communist.

    Control, nothing else, they want to dictate how you play the game. They can't sell microtransactions if you can just play offline and use mods and cheats to circumvent their predatory monetization. I swear the only reason they are eager to implement AI in games is so they have another excuse...

    You came into a topic, you willingly clicked on it, right? You weren't under any duress? So what gives? Do you also buy books you are not interested in then start reading them and then moan how you are not interested in it? BTW you got the story completely wrong, so it's not as if you ever...

    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 Crashes During Million Dollar CS2 Tournament Despite Being Selected As The GPU Of Choice

    Correlation is not proof of causation. I think for a fair competition it is a necessity to have standardized hardware. Just because nvidia or amd is sponsoring an event doesn't mean that's the only reason to have official hardware.

    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 Crashes During Million Dollar CS2 Tournament Despite Being Selected As The GPU Of Choice

    If they are too incompetent to monitor for cheating, they are too incompetent to organize an event period. As for people bringing their own systems this is not a freaking lan party, who is going to comb through all of their systems to find where they hid the trainer / exploit / etc.? You think...

    That would clearly show up as input, even if you claim to have done it accidentally that is still user error.

    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 Crashes During Million Dollar CS2 Tournament Despite Being Selected As The GPU Of Choice

    I assume their inputs are recorded anyway to prevent cheating. What could you even do to deliberately create a driver error or HW crash?

    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 Crashes During Million Dollar CS2 Tournament Despite Being Selected As The GPU Of Choice

    I don't get it, if the organizer provided the hardware that crashed, then the only fair thing would be repeating the match. This is questionable practice and opens the door to manipulating matches. Oh, sorry, your HW accidentally crashed, the other team wins!

    Global sales of XBox are so bad developers wonder if supporting the console is worth it for them

    Not really, you can still sell the console after you done using it and recoup some of the initial cost. If you just subscribe to it, it's all lost.

    ChatGPT linked to declining academic performance and memory loss in new study

    Memory loss? What does that even mean in this context? I'm sure it's not that if I use chatgpt I forget what I had for lunch yesterday, right? I'm going to take this with a grain-silo of salt.

    Denuvo/Irdeto "TraceMark for Gaming" Introduced at GDC 2024

    I could've sworn it was there yesterday when I checked, I can't find it today either. Maybe I looked at something else. I still see it on RE4. There were more than one case where games tested after cracking has shown a significant increase in performance and reduction in micro-stuttering...

    Denuvo/Irdeto "TraceMark for Gaming" Introduced at GDC 2024

    Yet we never heard of most of them, except for the really bad ones, which means the problem is not DRM per see, but invasive, performance killing, or otherwise bad DRM, like starforce, securom, denuvo... So the question remains why do they keep using trash like denuvo then? That's a rhetorical...

    Denuvo/Irdeto "TraceMark for Gaming" Introduced at GDC 2024

    Village is still listed on steam as containing denuvo, there seems to be no clear pattern to what they are doing. That is no excuse especially for outright spying proposed by the tech here. Dragon's Dogma has many issues, denuvo is just one of them. It is unlikely to be solely responsible for...

    Denuvo/Irdeto "TraceMark for Gaming" Introduced at GDC 2024

    You are joking right? Then how do we get the infamous "sales fell short of expectations" press releases, if they can predict sales so accurately? Where is this info coming from? Do you have a single source to back up that this is commonplace that investors make their investment dependent on a...

    Denuvo/Irdeto "TraceMark for Gaming" Introduced at GDC 2024

    What numbers? How do you even measure it? You can't release the same game with and without DRM, and comparing different games is meaningless. Shouldn't it improve sales compared to no DRM anyway? If it doesn't what is even the point?

    Denuvo/Irdeto "TraceMark for Gaming" Introduced at GDC 2024

    Even if that were true, it always being there doesn't excuse it. The RE2 and RE3 remakes definitely didn't have it, they added it to RE4 though. I think Village was the first in the series to have it. And it had all kinds of performance issues upon release.

    Denuvo/Irdeto "TraceMark for Gaming" Introduced at GDC 2024

    Recently they have been going all out on "tamper protection" ie anti modding, even in single player games, so much so that they started adding that crap retroactively in updates to games that never had it. This goes way beyond just fighting piracy, in fact I'd go as far to say it has nothing to...

    Denuvo/Irdeto "TraceMark for Gaming" Introduced at GDC 2024

    It's literally in the first 10 seconds of the video. But technically he didn't mention denuvo he just referred to it as "bull**** DRM". And that they had to buy multiple copies of the game to be able to test it on different configurations, and that some of their accounts got banned. And that...

    Denuvo/Irdeto "TraceMark for Gaming" Introduced at GDC 2024

    Thank you but I know what a marketplace is. What IDK is why bring it up as they are pitching this to game devs not asset creators and asset marketplaces. I'd have zero issue if this was pitched to asset creators to detect unauthorized use of their assets in published games. It is obvious that...

    Denuvo/Irdeto "TraceMark for Gaming" Introduced at GDC 2024

    I'm not sure that means what you think it means. I don't believe it is about asset theft, as that is never mentioned in the sales pitch. That's a leap. I'd need clarification before concluding that's what they mean by game content.

    Denuvo/Irdeto "TraceMark for Gaming" Introduced at GDC 2024

    There are literally thousands of mods out there that take assets from game A and port it into game B. Stealing assets to create a completely new game for profit is entirely another thing, and I don't think that happens very often, and even if it did, nobody could get away with it, anyway, So...

    Denuvo/Irdeto "TraceMark for Gaming" Introduced at GDC 2024

    And you think that's not a violation of privacy? Being able to pinpoint the exact user who made a screenshot of a game? You're extremely naive if you think it will only ever be used in pre-release versions falling under an NDA. We both know anti tamper software is excessively used for single...
