man if you haven't felt "OMG WHAT THe FucK I PAID FOR THIS SHIT WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS FUCKING INVISIBLE WALL DOING HERE AND WHAT THE FUCK BUGGED MENU tOOK MY ITEMS" then you really haven't played at all.

Feeling that and allowing it to trigger developer abuse is far from the same thing so why even bring this up?

anyways, it's not like they're going to go through with the threats unless they screw over south koreans with some loot disappearing bugs.

Regardless of threats becoming actions, I'd wish the abuse of receiving all those threats on noone.

besides than I'm pretty sure if you found guys responsible for kotor2 release and whoever came up with me3 ending you could get away if it was a "jury trial of your peers"..

I wouldn't assume my, or your, "peers" share the same undervalue of human life or overvalue of an entertainment product.

I don't think that any game developer with any vision is going to stop developing because some guys bitch on twitter though... many more are going to stop because nobody gives a fuck either way about their games.

And yet that is exactly what's happening and you're underestimating this issue by saying "some" ...

Yes, this is something I can't believe most people don't realise. Even if you're not breaking any laws, and most people are regularly breaking laws, you still have things to hide. Limiting the scope to "nothing criminal to hide" just isn't possible once the tracking/recording/whatever is in place!

The data she is requesting was generated by my actions, it is a data about what I did. Just like the GPS data in your telephone represents your movements, and the event log in your PC tells what programs you ran and the browsing history what websites you visited. It is your data.

I agree, if you are the only party involved. But this is an interaction, one producer and one consumer, so there must be "shared" data (or your statement wouldn't apply to the producer, rendering it invalid).
