@Ragnor You are creating a straw man, putting words that everyone can see are not written by grassyknoll, this is called "lying". That is the frightening part - your lame excuses for opposing "government intervention" just so EA can make a buck.

AOFanboi

2 years ago

I played in the beginning, until I realized I only logged in to have one of my characters start training another skill before logging out again... then quit. Maybe free to play means in the SW:TOR sense where the "veteran" players that used to be paying customers gain some benefits (like more free character slots etc.) that new post-going-free players don't get.

Interesting funding platform: As an option to the traditional backing with rewards you can spend a multiple of $500 as investment, which might get you a return on the investment - sort of closer to general funding than the "sort-of-store" reward system... seems slightly less than half of backers have chosen that option.

(It's annoying you cannot use the PS4/XB1 download add-on with the $10 tier though.)

I notice there are already several clones that seem to have lifted the graphics straight from the game; the reason I assume these are copycats is that their titles are "SEO"-like to hit as many keywords as possible: "Ice Ski Downhill - Mountain High Adventure", "Ski Escape - Down Slope Winter Ski", "Downhill Ski Adventure - Winter Fun Strategy", "Ski Avalanche - Fun Snowboarding Adventure" - even the screenshots are nearly the same.

We need to talk about emulation

AOFanboi

3 years ago

@DanWhitehead Copyright is a State-granted monopoly, and that monopoly can be used to keep something on the market, or to keep something off the market (like Hitler's family is doing regarding Mein Kampf). But the intent of copyright is to act as incentive to creators before the works enter the public culture where they belong. If a work is intentionally kept away from the public, does that not mean that it should have its copyright revoked for violating the agreement between the creator and the people?

Gaming convention threatens to abandon Indiana if anti-gay bill passes

@mr_moti learn the difference between opinions and actions. Here, I will make it easy for you:

1) Anne the atheist cashier thinks religions are archaic inventions meant to suppress the masses. A clearly religious person comes in the door. She smiles, asks what she can assist with, processes the purchase of whatever the person wants, and says "have a nice day" as the person leaves.

2) Anne the atheist cashier thinks religions are archaic inventions meant to suppress the masses. A clearly religious person comes in the door. "Get the hell out of my store!" she yells and the person hurries out.

In Indiana, the latter would now be legal (except atheism is not a religion, but some people seem to think it is so that would be justification).
