Like I said, if you'd actually used some punctuation in your post it might have been comprehensible.

However, I really shouldn't expect much more - you quite clearly only have one free typing hand. You *really* are enjoying this aren't you.

Has anyone officially claimed this one yet?

So sorry yegon if I made your post look a bit like the post of a lamer that was the last to spot the joke.

Don't worry, your true lamer abilities haven't fully manifested yet. You'll just have to settle for making your own posts lame, it'll be some time before you can do the same to other peoples.

You really think you made us angry? As we've been said many times, you've provided us with fantastic entertainment today. Please... continue.

/pokes forum a bit more see if there is any life left in the Eve stinks thread.

Harry go play with the dick you are so proud of and cut down on the name calling, you are both unoriginal and bad at it.

And I suppose he should be taking hints from a true master such as yourself? Oh that "go play with your dick" comment had me rolling around on the floor, shaking with laughter. No, it did. Really.

Your review sucks .
Excellent work there. Think that all up by yourself didja?

You havent played the game at all .
He clearly stated that he played it for a month... looky looky, other coments ^^

Yes you can train skill faster using implants .
F'nar f'nar

Yes you can fly all ships if you want .
You can command a ship to go to a location, but you are never in complete control of a ship.

And as for the combat pay me a visit ill show you how combat is done .
What is worrying is that I'm sure you could re-read that and not realise how sad that sounds.

You shouldnt be allowed to post review as you are obviously not a real gamer .
He's a reader... he reviewed a game... I think that meets the two major requirements...

I must have missed the point of this thread. Just as reviews are meant to debate the quality of a game, isn't this thread meant to be a place to allow readers to debate a review? Where are those pots and kettles again?

Debate is welcomed. But simply repeating the same points again and again, and even duplicating the same posts gets a little tired, yes bad harlequin, I am looking at you!

Well, with such eloquent and polite people as you here, answering my discussion with wang insults, why on earth would I want to leave?
Thanks for proving my point that the EG community has its share of stupid flamers who will defend it against anything too.

Lutz said: Personally I love a lot of games (Yes, C&C included for whoever made the comment on your forums) but I've seen a lot of flak that games I like get (Like Halo) and whilst I don't agree with the opinion I can certainly accept that they have an opinion.

So why, when I said that "the 2nd half of Halo is the basically the first half played backwards" did you down your pint of Guinness, smash the pint pot on the table, and try to glass me in the face?*

You can get them in Tesco and I've recently found them in ADSA (much to my delight as ADSA is 10 minutes closer).

They're not quite as filling as an ASDA pizza from the pizza counter (another fav of mine is the American Hot from there), but they win on the taste stakes. A great snack.

I agree with Striker in that it looks like you didn't read the article, and therefore are completly missing the point.

How is shafting Europe good marketing? I hardly get a warm fuzzy feeling inside when I think of Eidos right now.

I hope that helps. If you need help with tying your shoelaces, just let me know.


Let's not delude ourselves - you're not some modern day folk hero, sticking it to the evil corporations who mercilessly exploit the poor unfortunate souls who know no better.

I'm not claiming to be. I simply stated my actions and motivations, something you quite clearly disagree with - that's fine, you're intitled to your opinion.


You advocate a practice that is illegal. That Eidos fucked up in not in question - your attitude toward piracy is.

I'll say this again for the cheap seats, as I'm getting tired of repeating myself. My attitude to piracy is this - If you copy a game and don't pay for it, then you're a naughty boy and I don't advocate this in any way. If you download a game, try it, like it, and buy it, then *I* have no problems with this. Whilst it is technically illegal, and morally wrong to some people, *I* don't have a problem with it as *I* don't believe that it harms the game developers, in fact I would say it helps increase their sales. I say *I* as this is my opinion only, I don't claim to claim to be right while the rest of you are wrong, I just claim to be different.

Tell us, what is your opinion of the assholes who hacked into Valve? The parallel between them and pirates is more clear than you'd like to admit. Both the hacker and the pirate illegally obtain data/assets/code that are not theirs. The motivations may vary, but the practice is the same. Please, use that big old brain of yours to defend the Valve hackers......

That is a good question, although I don't believe it is entirely relevant in this case. I don't believe that I'm in a position to answer this without being biased, I'm in the industry of securing systems against hackers, so don't try and tell me that what hackers are the pirates are the same thing. The only similarity is that they both are involved in illegal activities, it stops there. The hacker that stole Valves source code, beta version and who knows what else is in my opinion a complete fuck-tard to put it mildly. I quite like Valve as a company, and what they have done/plan to do for the gaming scene, no company, not even Eidos with their region biased launches deserves something like that. What this "hacker" has done is put the future of a great company in jeopardy, and I in no way condone that kind of behaviour. I hope to god that Gabe et al, find the little swine and get to have 15 minutes alone in a room with him with only a jar of salt, a spoon, and some sandpaper for company. By the same token (I'll say this again) I REALLY don't condone those people who copy games and never pay for them - they're simply leaching of the game developers, something I don't do. I ALSO don't condone game companys charging their customers a fortune for a game that is shoddly made, unfinished and well overpriced.

Again on the Valve issue - I have no problem with them delaying the game, what ever their reason may be (either due to the hacker, or because it needs finishing), they have every right to do that - it's their game after all. I like the idea of Valves release proposal, world wide release via the Internet, fantastic (if it works). A method that I applaud and will make use of.

99% of these arguments under which circumstances piracy should be allowed sound like self-deception to me. It's wrong, period, and if you pirate anyhow, so be it, but at least be honest to yourself. Believing it's somehow justified to copy a game because it's delayed here is just silly. Just import it then, ffs.

It's not self deception. I'm not denying that it is wrong or illegal. I am fully aware that that I will be breaking the law by downloading a copy of this game. All I'm saying is that the game is available legally in the US, and the only easy way go obtain a legal copy over here is by downloading a copy - I already stated that I'm not willing to go through the hassle of importing a game because the company clearly aren't bothered about my money because of where I live. Look - I'm not trying to convince the rest of you that what I propose is right, I'm simply stating what I will do in this situation and my reasons for it. I don't expect you all to agree with my actions or motives, everyone is different after all. Not in one post did I claim to be a saint. I'll say again, I fully intend to buy a copy when it's released over here (I'm aware that this doesn't make what I am doing "legal").

I am not taking any moral highground here, do what pleases you, but don't defend it with silly arguments.

The tone of the arguments was lowered substantially to match the level intelliect with which I was initially addressed. If someones responds to my post with the first word reading "twat", how do you think I'm going to react. I'm more than happy to discuss this in a sesible manner with those willing, not that there's much to discuss - it would appear that there is a clear divide of opinions regarding this subject.

You're just contributing to the wide-spread opinion that it's just a peccadillo and that there's a major difference between stealing someone's physical and someone's intellectual property, which isn't true.

I don't believe that there is a difference - theft is theft. However I don't believe that what I am doing is going to hurt Eidos - download now, and buy later. Which I have done before (holds hands up). Again I will say that I only have legal copies of games on my system.

Doesn't mean I am (or always was) a saint in that respect, mind.

Heh - show me the man who isn't!

Sorry, but as someone defending other's IP as a profession, I had to comment

Don't be sorry - there is certainly nothing wrong with having a difference of opinion with someone.

Three words:
Demos

Are unfortunately rarely available for most of the big titles. But I do make use of them if they exist. Haven't seen a demo for DE2 yet...

Reviews
Yeah these can be useful when gauging if I *might* be interested in a game or not. That's why I visit this site. But at the end of the day they are opinions, and what's one mans Eyetoy is another mans ICO, if you get my meaning. They only way of knowing if *I* will like a game is for me to play it.

Footage
Yeah this is great if you're a graphics whore, but I require much more from a game.

Again - I wouldn't buy a car based on what was shown on Top Gear - I'd want to drive the thing first.

Simple concept, let me know if you want the Sesame Street version. Oooo look mummy, the nasty man is being patronising again!
