Mass effect will require online activation, thus I will not buy it. Fuck this, i am through fucking around with this bullshit. Fuck Valve, Fuck EA, Fuck microsoft, Fuck Ubisoft (They are going to pull some shit like this soon, I just know they are) Fuck Sony and Fuck Microsoft. Rockstar are just as bad.

Fuck consoles, fuck rap, fuck swell guy :not black people, just swell guy, fuck everyone who owns a fucking console, i REFUSE to buy a console i REFUSE to be pushed around like this, i have a fucking cupboard full of original games and now when i buy one i have to have a connection to the people i paid money so they can fuck with me, fuck that. They have just made a pirate out of me. There is a reason i did not buy bioshock.

Just told bioware what i think.

Assholes

Congratulations on choosing EA as your publisher, congratulation on
allowing them to implement a system requiring me to be online every
10days. Congratulation on alienating a fan who BOUGHT YOUR GAMES. I
bought BG1:Tosc, BG2:SoA (2 copies), IWD1:HoW(2 copies) and IWD2, and
KotOR 2. Now i am going to NOT buy any of your games EVER again.
Congrats, you fucked me over now i will steer anyone i meet away from
buying any of your software ever again.

I just ordered an hd2900 and a power supply to be able to play your
game it cost me R4000, but now I am not going to buy mass effect
anymore, instead I think I will use the R300 I was going to give to
you to buy internet, (you know that thing I need to run your game)
and not give you any money because you think that you can control me.

I did not buy bioshock for the same reason. DRM will bury your company.

You have just lost one of your loyal customers due to greed. I will
not be controlled.

And I think you people at Bioware should take this next comment to
heart because I mean it with every fibre of my being. I think you
should REALLY REALLY TAKE THIS TO HEART, because I don't think anyone
has meant anything more than I mean this now.

FUCK
YOU

I supported you from the beginning of your company up until now, and
you repay me this way. I have bought R2000 worth of your software.

FUCK
YOU

I can almost hear the tears pooling on your keyboard, feel your vision going blurry from fury. Not about to let poor vision slow you down you stand up for the first time in days from a desk covered in soda cans and bags of chips - the movement is a bit abrupt and after a dizzying head rush of vindictive joy that almost knocks you over the following words are screeched:

"MOM, TAKE A NOTE! WE ARE GOING TO STICK IT TO BIOWARE!"

I don't drink fizzy drinks, but yes i am pissed off, i am now officially a pirate, unluckily i am not an esteemed washed up drug addict such as yourself, at least i bitch about it. Maybe one day they will listen. Oh well, looks like i just bought new pc parts solely to use for 3dmark.

It does probably suck cause it is a trilogy. I am just going to pimp out my pc so i can run bos box at like 50000 cycles. I can run it at about 30000 right now but that is not even enough to get crusaders videos to play properly. I am fucking going to make my own games from now on I think.

Mass Effect was a good game, at least when you use the other titles released in the same year as it for a scale.

Am I to understand that before this you have never pirated any software? Thats quite an accomplishment.

methinks this can only end in disaster, but the end result could be interesting...

Only thing I really dislike about EA at the moment (or at least a couple months ago) was the peripherals (instruments) in Rockband - released with known problems just so they could get in before the holidays. That's weak.

Mass Effect wasn't a bad game, but you could feel KOTOR all over it, and admittedly, my wife beat it and I just never got around to it.

I love it when i kick and scream and tell a dev i will fucking boycott them and they take me seriously.

Oh yeah. Victory 5.

You still need to activate, but no need to re auth every 5 mins. I dont like it but it is better than nothing. I think i will buy it then crack it.

"• First, authentication of discs has now gone from the physical format to the online format, freeing the need for consumers to have a disc in the drive at all times.

• Second, with online authentication consumers now connect to the Internet the first time the game is launched and are required only to reconnect if they are downloading new game content."

They make it sound like they are doing their customers a favor by making them authenticate the game online. Fucking fascists.

All I do is pirate software. I may buy copies of games which I find are worth it but generally, they aren't worth shit and are way too short.

Paying 80 bucks for a 360 game is fucking ridiculous and anyone who claims otherwise is retarded. Long live the computer gamers.

Which is usually why I'm playing them 3 months after release date hell yeah!

Only a few games really pique my interest - I was in Gamestop twice in the last week, and nothing looked good at all. I only picked up an old xbox game for $5 that was backwards compatible.

Resident Evil 5 and Silent Hill 5 are the only ones I'm waiting for. Anything else between now and then will probably just be "Oh look - it's twenty bucks, and I *guess* it looks okay."
