Nope. I was tempted to go find a pirated version just to see the gimmick in action. I'm certain I'm not alone.
And where did I attempt to make a moral argument about piracy? Piracy will always exist - morally correct or not. You can bitch and moan about it or you can attempt to do something about it. The percentage of pirates who would have bought a legit copy is meaningful because it lets you gauge how effective your anitpiracy method was. If your game flops and you want to blame it on piracy you better have some hard numbers to back yourself up with. It doesn't matter whether the pirates were in the right or wrong; if you make it easier to get a pirated copy, piracy rates will go up and it's your fault.
And what % of the 3130 people that pirated it actually would have bought a legit copy? Had they not provided a "pirated" version for free on launch day would a pirated version even have existed? The game obviously has a niche market (game development sim - not something I would spend money on). There's too many confounding factors to say that piracy caused the game to tank and if anything they got hoisted by their petard.
With only 3344 total users I'd argue that they either need to advertise more or make a better game. Furthermore the gimmick in the pirated version may in fact drive up the piracy rate.
Yup, not comcast. I'm seeing the same thing and I'm not using them.
That is the beauty of open source - you can do that.
The 'muricans have violated the jihadi's values.
Conflict is easy to manufacture.
As has been said, the minecart is amazing.
I was looking at some of the other ones, and I managed to break the ball drop one - once the ball goes beyond the bottom of the screen, it continues infinitely.
It isn't. There's absolutely nothing stopping you from seeding a torrent of your drm free copy and distributing it to millions. It doesn't change the fact that you are still violating the copyright of the developer and are being a massive dick. To me, DRM-free means "if you own multiple computers, go ahead and install it on all of them without issues."
They explain why they are doing that in the kickstarter. They don't want to lay off their concept artists while they finish WL2 because they actually have 1.5 development teams.
I ran into the bug with the FastIron over 6 months ago. They only just fixed the bug and it took way too much effort on our part to even get them to acknowledge the bug.
Compared to Cisco, Brocade equipment is noticeably lower quality. I've run into two new brocade switches with bad ports on them as well as one linecard. Furthermore I found a software bug with a brocade chassis that could potentially cause it to become unusable with the only way of fixing being wiping the config. I've only seen one DoA Cisco switch.
Oh and Brocade documentation sucks (granted I haven't had to look too much at the Cisco documentation too often).
I know of places at a top US university that are still using thicknet.
Half duplex is more alive than you think.
So what will happen if NK truly opens themselves up to the internet (not like China) and gives its citizens unfettered access?
The illusion will be shattered for the citizens of NK, they will begin to demand more from their government and openess will come.
From the video it seems that they were rifle rounds, not birdshot.
