Social Justice Mage...'cause I never play warriors
That was a damn well written reply in the Star Wars thread. Thanks for accepting my request.
Season's greetings! I would like to personally invite you to join this year's PC Secret Santa event, thread link below. Please drop by and help us make this holiday season a bit more merry for everyone. Looking forward to seeing you there!
Interested in a Rocket League tournament?
You mentioned Free to Air TV shows btw but TV isn't really free to air in all countries you know, here to own a basic TV ie something with a tuner in it costs close to €200 per year, where as charity shops run campaigns all the time to collect pcs from training centres to give them to poor people, for free and that super flashy internet you talk of? Citizens advice here in Ireland will cover the cost of that (7mb connection) for a poor family.
I just happen to work in a training centre who donates PCs to projects like this it was how I encountered it, I have to say those people who are in bad situations, I would always give them advice on how they can at least be somewhat happy in their pretty shitty situation.
(also I wouldn't ever suggest that selling pirated material is right, that is directly profiteering from other peoples work and I've directly moved to stop people attempting to do that here, sorry if there was miscommunication on that matter)
I guess it just happens to be where you encounter piracy going on, if it is someone like you suggested who has spent a few K on a gaming rig but refuses then to pay for windows to install on it... no, I would never condone that, but if it was saying a family poor enough to apply for a free 15+ year old PC to send emails would love to watch a movie with their kids... no I really am not going to judge that in the same way as the first person, but like I said where I happen to work I encounter the second quite a lot so I get to see it face to face.
Hope that cleared up some of my "Piracy acceptance" I understand completely if you still hold the zero tolerance for it, but some backstory seemed due for you to my feelings on the stuff.
Interesting article today on Dualshockers that made me think of you. They suggested an easy way for Sony to introduce "backwards compatibility" which involves exactly what you have been saying on the topic. Simply have PSNow recognize your owned copy of a game by either disc or digital and allow them to played for free when available. You beat them to it by a few months. ;)
Congrats with your XBO > PS4 NPD prediction.
In your face, hater
Not really, just kidding
