It's not terrorism if you have a letter of marque!
Yeah, but thats command and conquer...its been stuck in its own death spiral for years now, and they are basically just copying everyone elses' game mechanics.
Well that depends. Is this game going to have a demo? If I'm interested in the game and it does, the demo will give me a good idea whether or not I would enjoy more of the game. If not and I'm interested, I just might look for a pirate version to evaluate your game, then buy it if I find the game worth it.
I mean, its not like I can buy a game, find I dont like it, then return it for a refund, can I? Oh no! That would promote piracy!
I have many games that sit collecting dust because they weren't worth the CDs they were stamped on. I'm tired of being burned.
Put your best foot forward. Or just call in and say you're sick.
