Comment the players are all talk (again) (Score 1) 315

D20, etc? Reember all the t3 stuff going on behind the scenes? Cheating by devs? etc a few years ago? People we soo angrrrry and then got over it. They all said they'd quit and didn't. Same thing. 2 or 3 people will quit, and everyone will continue to play on and forget. Eq2 players did it, WOW players did it. In fact the only time players actually manned up and quit was the NGE in Galaxies. in a month, no one will be talking about EVA again until the next crisis that won't really do anything.

I wouldn't rent a long RPG or sandbox game, though.

No, but it's a fantastic way to try-before-you-buy. I am sick to death of buying $50-$60 games only to get burned on them. I'll happily pay two bucks to see if it's worth buying my own copy.

Agreed. But then again, most people who would enjoy rpgs aren't using Redbox anyway. So it's a win-win for anyone sick of $60 console games that only have 5 hours of gameplay.

And how many of those people who actually buy it, had it been unpiratable? Seriously, not every case of pirating is a lost sale. You sound like you're from 1999. Most pirates wouldn't buy it anyway. When I was a kid, I pirated stuff I had no intention of buying (I was poor, not like I could afford it anyway).

my job forces me to use Ie7. I haven't used it at home since the early firefox days, and I use crome 1/4 of the time I'm at home. the fact i have to use it at work on our net based apps makes me rage ... especially considering we just went "all windows" this spring (2011) after using a shitton of dos apps (we use SAP now, and I don't remember what we used for the last 8 years ... some sort of inventory program).
