    If they don't want people to pirate their games, people need to start making games worth purchasing. Until that happens, I will steal every game I want to play, play the campaign, and if I like it and want to try multiplayer, I'll buy it.

    It also doesn't help that pirated games do not have the experience crippling DRM that purchased games do.
    you sir.. are human filth.. I hold you in the same regard as the little rodents that go through parking lots checking for unlocked doors.. I only wish I could be there to see you get what you have coming to you..

    back on topic though.. I played 53 hours on my first play through.. warrior.. yeah I pre-ordered and respecced a bunch and generally just took my time and tried to enjoy the ride on casual mode.. my only complaint is that there isn't a lot of room for exploration and just finding things by chance.. oh and a few bugged quests that couldn't be completed.. but meh.. I paid my $53.. I enjoyed the game.. back to WoW..

    I enjoyed the game very much, right up until the final hour or so. Sided with the mages, and i'll just say i was pissed off at how it turned out.

    You have no right to download the game and play it and it causes an adverse affect on the industry. Games that were scheduled for PC release were cancelled due to Arcade ports being pirated. Sequels have been pulled because of piracy of the first game. Game developers are preferring console as its harder to pirate.

    You can justify it however you like, but your still morally and legally in the wrong. Its no different than you grabbing the game off the store shelf and running out with it, and I doubt half the pirates would do that.
    Harder to pirate?! Yeah right, Dragon Age II was available for consoles around the 4th of March. It was scheduled to release on the 8th. So get your facts straight before you post. If anything even if you downloaded the leaked game on the PC it had a SecuRom with a release date check. So you could not play it before it's official release date. So don't tell me that console games are harder to pirate.

    And to that Mothhive: You mad I pirate? Do something about it then. Calling me names won't do anything. Well, I guess you can't. You can just rant on a forum. Pathetic. I will still pirate. You can jump off a cliff for all I care. If I like the games I buy them. But I am not going to give companies, who think they can put up a half assed product and still get my 60 dollars, the incentive to create more crappy shit. I am not even going to go into DLCs. Game Developers deliberately not including content upon release so they can cash in on it at a later stage just because they are greedy and know no bounds. If you, Mothhive, like being bended over then please, go ahead. I don't. That is why I do what I do.

    Instead of being so proud you filled some greedy companies pockets by buying their crap, go donate money to charity. Help someone in need. If you see a beggar on the street toss him some cash. This is way more meaningful. I do it every chance I get. Those people actually benefit from my money. Yeah, what scum I am. The next time a company releases a game and tries to milk you, seeing as you are so very unselfish, instead of spending those 60 bucks on it give them to a poor person. Much more meaningful. I bet my ass though, you won't do it. So yeah, keep on defending those companies and feel good and so awesome about it.

    I can rant all I want because I bought Origins, Awakening and all DLCs and felt cheated with what they did to Dragon Age II. I see that the money I spent on the original weren't used for making another game but instead making some sort of rush job to cut costs and cash in on the fame of Origins. Not only that but they fail to release a patch that fixes all their damn bugs that should have been caught by the QA team anyway.

    Look at Magicka. I paid 10 Euros for it, but the game is so worth my money. Not only that, but it's developers are dedicated to it and constantly churning updates and fixes. Kudos to those sort of creators who actually value their customers and put some love into making their products. THOSE are worth my money. And I don't hesitate to buy those games. But assholes who think they can get my cash just because they are riding on past fame and get away with it? Never.

    Get help. The dude said if he likes the game he buys it. I see no difference. In the end he DOES buy it but is sure that he didn't throw his money away and give it to some crappy developer. He probably pays taxes, doesn't steal, murder, blackmail and so on, and yet you call him human filth for pirating a game. You are ... I really have no words to describe you. You better start taking your meds again though. And instead of shooting blanks, load a live one in the magazine, and put it right between your eyes.

    Self-righteous zealots like you make me sick. Like you never in your life have downloaded an illegal mp3 or something, right? Hah. All you can do is try and look menacing on the forums. You said it yourself: You can only wish, but you can do jack shit about it. So shut up and hide under the rock you crawled from. (Or the mental institution that you escaped from)

    Wait? This entire thread is discussing piracy and I made one post - not even supporting piracy, but highlighting a real issue in Crysis Warhead and Crysis 2, and I got an infraction?

    Whatever, I could contribute, but I don't want to get in trouble. It is a pointless never ending argument.

    Piracy... Stealing is stealing to me, no matter whom you steal from (unless you "steal" Robin Hood-style). But then again: As long as you don't pirate games made by Indie developers I can't care less. Those companies are the ones who actually need money and most of the time those who have great ideas that the mainstream developers don't dare pour money into.

    <Brenty> You know, I think the media really fucked up when they called it "software piracy"
    <Brenty> Everyone WANTS to be a pirate
    <Brenty> If they'd called it "software faggotry" everyone would still buy all their shit

All that stuff about not giving companies your money so they don't have the incentive to create more cash-ins is crap. If you really were standing up for what you thought was a just cause, you wouldn't pirate the game, you'd just boycott it. If you don't think something is worth your money, you simply don't spend it, you don't just take the product anyway. It all boils down to the fact that you can get games for free with barely any risk to yourself. If you could get food, clothes, cars, houses, etc by downloading them anonymously form the internet, you'd do that too. As for giving to charities, whoopdee do, I hope that helps you to sleep a bit better at night. I pay for all my games and still donate to charities, except my money is clean, you only have money to give away because you steal. If you mugged some rich looking old biddy in the street and then gave that money to a homeless person, you'd still be a bad (and possibly mental) person, not Robin Hood.

    Romanticise what you do all you want, but you're not changing the company's policies by pirating their games, you're not making a stand, you're just taking what you want, and ignore it if you want, but it is not a victimless crime. These big faceless companies employ many people who are not bad, are not trying to screw people out of money, they're doing their jobs and trying to make a living.

    Anyway, yes, I am mad at you pirating. You, and selfish people like you who feel entitled to take whatever they want because they can get away with it, are what's wrong with the world today. So you've played som bad games that weren't worth the money you paid in your opinion, suck it up, it happens. If you think about your purchases, research the games beforehand or wait for a drop in price to a level you are comfortable with, their is no need for piracy. And no, pirating a game for a "demo" is not acceptable, as once you have it, there is no incentive to actually buy it legally besides doing the right thing, and if that was something you'd even consider, you wouldn't have pirated it in the first place.

    Let's turn this thread around. Have you guys downloaded the High Resolution pack yet (and patch 1.01 while I'm at it)? Sadly my computer isn't good enough to run it so for those who can, how much better does it look?

    The thing with piracy is, you don't actually steal anything. In the real world, if you go steal a can of beans from a store, you get the can but the store loses it. That's why it's bad. By stealing in the real world you don't only gain, you cause harm to someone. Sure you can say that by pirating you get something for free that you would have paid for otherwise but thats not completely accurate. Most "pirates" won't buy half the stuff they download if they had to pay for it. I'm not saying that I condone piracy but it definitely isn't the same as stealing, no matter how the companies want to sell it to you as such.

    But back on topic. I think I'm enjoying my second playthrough on nightmare even more than first. It's starting the go really smoothly if you get the team working well together. If I just rush it, I'm dead in 10s. Speaking of that, I think force mage is really overpowered, especially with gravity ring. It lasts a long time and no one can pass through it's center so with "trash" I usually place that on a doorway, put my tank and other melee if I have on hold and then cast firestorm and other aoes from companions on top if it. The baddies all gather up as a tight clump so killing them all before the ring expires is easy.

    Also some companions seem to be really underrated for nightmare. Sure, Aveline is a great tank but I've been using Fenris a lot too on second playthrough. I actually prefer him on casual fights since he puts out so much damage compared to aveline and works better with cross class combos (staggers everything and 1 shots a group of normal mobs frozen with imp. cone of cold). He doesn't work good with other melee or on bosses though.

    Also Anders.. everyone seems to use him as a healer, I just took the normal heal with him and went vengeance and elemental, he also gets 10% to all damage from being a friend with him, and a lot of fire damage from gear so hes firestorm is pretty devastation when I use it on gravity ring along with Hawke. Oh and lastly Isabela, shes next to useless in some fights but insanely helpful with assassins and when smaller mobs come from all directions and I cant bottleneck them. 10 attacks, stagger and explosive strike pretty much 1 shots all the assassions so far and if they're alive, twin fangs. Sure other tactics work too but this way they cant stealth or use health potions and 1 shot my mages:P
    Remember remember the fifth of November
    Gunpowder, treason and plot.
    I see no reason why gunpowder, treason
    Should ever be forgot...

    Holy crap that sounds amazing fun. Camping doorways, abusing bad AI and stacking AOE to make it through nightmare. Wonderful game im sure you're enjoying every second of your second playthrough. I would.

    Good example of the direct consequence of pirating is crysis 2, it is so noticeable that it is a console port. Graphic and physics wise it has nothing on its PC orientated predecesor.

    So yeah thanks for pirating you bint.

    You do realise you can pirate console games just as easily, right?

    Not that you had any cred before, as you are the well known "Bioware-Brownnoser".
    I love his posts. Sure you can like the game if you want, but that guy is just taking the cake.
