#fuck30fps

Pleeeease don't tell me it's another game with timing linked to the FPS. Otherwise maybe a moder can do, again, what the developer couldn't.

So they blatantly disregard international law while their "local businesses" wait for others do all the work spend on r&d and then just steal the fruits of other peoples labour? Thats not acceptable business practice anywhere in the world . Its theft plain and simple.

Yes, it is. But China operates under its own set of rules :)

They're not corrupt. Well, they're that as well, but in case of copyright 99% of the time they protect the "local business" from the "foreign invaders". It's kind of state policy there to blatantly ignore international law in such matters.


This isn't just about video games. Cars, watches, clothing ... anything you can think of is probably cloned in China.

Not a big fan of that, I rather have fewer soldiers to manage. I recently the original UFO Enemy Unknown and in most mission I simply left 3-4 soldiers in the ship while the others did the mission.

The odds are probably different from region to region, as Asians tend to buy a lot more of these things than we do. Anyway, I find it funny that China makes such a pro-consumer move before anyone else.Reply

Im not a lawyer but from a player perspective there seems very little to no regulation and lots of grey areas with lots of gambling targeted at minors which is not "classed" as gambling that really needs to be looked at mobile and facebook games.

For the love of God, please stop using all these heavy-handed approaches to combat piracy. All are at a point where they're more of an inconvenience to legit customer than a deterrence to pirates. I don't want all sort of crap installed on my computer, doing God knows what without my consent or even knowledge. I don't want to depend on crap online DRM to be able to play my otherwise entirely offline games. Because that's what I get right now for being a paying customer ....Reply

Exactly. To me this is good news so maybe we can get rid of these copy protection things that hinder my enjoyment.

Luckily we have some games on GOG.

I tend to agree. This seems like Blizzard attempting to brute force the shutdown of this "tool". Maybe they should focus on making their games more secure instead?


On the other hand, a lot of games these days come with anti-cheating tools, which can be best described as rootkits. If I was to chose between having a rootkit forcefully installed on my machine or having slimy lawyers fighting shady developers ... I think I know which option I would chose.

Let's be fair here. Blizzard are CONSTANTLY making their games more secure, but these tools require memory manipulation and aren't easy to catch unless you aggressively scan the client running them. If Blizzard did that to your PC you'd flip your shit as it's an invasion of privacy.


Honorbuddy users get caught in a banwave every 1-4 Months.


There was one in (I think) August last year, one in November and there was one today - and the last two were after Honorbuddy's supposedly improved bot detection detector.


It seems like if you're using Honorbuddy at any point you're basically risking getting caught in a banwave and it seems almost certain that getting caught is detection of the bot as opposed to being reported as lots of very careful botters get caught in these banwaves too.

I'd also like this to become a regular thing. There are so many games around and I like any kind of "bird's eye view" over what's out there and good.


Book of Demons looks absolutely beautiful. It's on my watch list now. Cheers.

World of Warships review snippet How does World of Warships run on your PC?
Reasonably well, the game feels much better optimized than WoT. I would expect better framerates though, since the graphics aren't spectacular and the action is fairly slow.

Let's just say I haven't seen in DD any reason not to. Bu then again, I'll judge any game from them on its own merits, not those of DD.

Fallout 4 review snippet Is Fallout 4 grindy?
No, it's not grindy, unless you really try to turn it into a grind. Play it as it is supposed to be played and even a bit more and it doesn't have any sort of grind in it.
