I pirate whatever, I don't really give a rats I pay a ton of cash into the movie and games industry and if there's a game I wanna play that's either not on a format I would pay for it on or if it's easier I'll just do it.

Most recent thing was probably cuphead, was on the PC wanted to see what it's about so I picked it up for the friendly neighbourhood pirate bay and played a fair chunk of it, was announced for the Switch and bought it day 1 (well actually day -14 since I had it pre purchased from the point where you could) I buy on average about 5 games a week to add to my collection across a range of platforms, from PS4/PC/NS/GC/3DS/DS/X360/PS3/Wii and many more.... have hundreds of games legit owned (well... it would be thousands by now actually rather easily, between X360/GC and NS I own around 1,000 titles) I have literally zero problem with pirating a game for effectively any reason I want, from shitty dev practices, just wanting to demo the game or simply because I can't be bothered to password locker my CC details and go to pirate bay instead of steam because they remember my CC details there.

I'd wager that I probably pirate more games than most people on this site, I would also near certainly say I spend more on games that 95% of the people on this site per year coming in at 4figures per season at least. Piracy is great.

One thing I will say though! Support Netflix and your local cinema's as long as you have a decent one in your area, if you only have one and it shuts down you missing out on seeing some great movies in the way they're meant to be seen, I've got a home threater projector (1080p just) setup at 130" but still... you can't get things like a midnight release of Endgame at home so support your cinemas and the movie franchises you love! And netflix because they fund the creation of some amazing series (and in piracies defence.... Adam Sandler movies)

So your ok with pirating PC games but not switch games?. Also Steam wont remember your CC details unless you tell it too, same with PSN and id imagine the switch online store?.

When the next models of Switch come I'll get myself the pro model, move my account and library to that and use my original model (and the 256GB micro SD I used before upgrading to the 400GB one I currently use) for homebrew / piracy, I wouldn't risk my Nintendo account with hacking.

I pirate some PC games I buy others, my steam library is populated with games I love and play with friends, much like how my battle net account has my wow account of more than 2 years.... of play time and overwatch. I've no issue with paying for games on the PC where I want to I've said this in the post you quoted.

Cuphead on PC I pirated because I had a feeling that the dev's would put it somewhere I would buy it and I didn't feel it was double dip worthy but was definitely willing to pay for it once! Which I have now done. Something like street fighter 4 on the other hand.... that's a game I've bought a nearly insane number of times... paid full price for that probably... 14 times, if it was to come to the Switch that would be 15 as a pre order without a second thought, it could be 15 now if I'm missing a version but I think it's 14! 2 of those are on the PC if you're wondering! the original Street Fighter 4 from games for windows live and Ultra Street Fighter 4 sits in my steam library!

Fancy hearing me on an amateur podcast with friends gushing over one of my favourite games? https://youtu.be/1I7JfMMxhf8
