1up story on SiN episodes piracy

What're your thoughts on piracy, folks? First off, I'm not making this so you can talk about everything you've pirated and whatnot, or if you even do it, just your thoughts on the issue and how the various industries that this is relevant to are affected. Personally, I don't see it as a huge problem if something is old and hard to find, but pirating every new game while buying next to none doesn't sit well with me, espicially if you really like it and want to see more. Even if the company's not seriously harmed by the missed sales, I still consider it a 'thank you' for having made the game.

Nevertheless, some are too zealous about stopping it - we all know about the RIAA and Sony's shortlived rootkits afterall. And it's pretty obnoxious to have to sit through a long warning about piracy when booting up, say, Dead or Alive when that's not going to deter /anyone/ that cares to do so, and seeing the MPAA's campaign gets annoying at times.

Discuss.

Edit: I'll note that even when it's justified, I do not see it as being /right/.

I doubt it....the "gameplay" was hardly substaintial enough for me to care about it. I need a game that's fun to play these days...which is why I'm having a blast with radiata stories. It's fun to play!

... Well, can't argue with you there. And it's one of the reasons why I haven't gotten around to playing it through to the end yet.

Suikoden V is my biggest disappointment ever....bleck.

I'd argue about other games being that, but honestly even great games like VP can be immensely disappointing with enough hype.

So, uhh, try again in a few years?

I'm really curious to see what happens to the game space when ps3/Wii hit stores....

Will nintendo get screwed again with 1 paltry shelf for new games in the back of gs/eb??

If the Wii is half as successful as game journalists/the internet would seem to imply it will be, I think the Wii will at least have more prominent space than before.

I really don't like GameStop/EB's focus on pre-ordered - I liked it back when Babbages and EB were focused on selling new games, while Funcoland was nearly dedicated to used games, but now it seems like they're trying for a middle ground... But encroaching on Funcolands ratio of new/used, while focusing only on the current generation more often than not. Makes me wish/hope some new retailer focusing on games popped up, but as it is Fry's is now my favorite place for games.

Well, I consider the SH and WA series amongst the more popular RPG series - they're obviously not comparable to FF or many SE games/series, but I imagine they're still more popular than, say, MegaTen or Atelier Iris over here.

SMT:DS has yet to be revealed, if it even /exists/, and unless you're planning to import XS1&2 is likely never coming out in english, thanks to a combination of Namco's spotty record when it comes to localizing their RPGs, and the fact that the game apparantly just sucked.

Stuff like Duck Hunt, I think is more likely to be a much cheaper Wii VC game, a graphically updated version of the original. As for any other games (I never heard of ASH), it's entirely possible some of those games on your list will get delayed, thus further dropping the amount you'd have to spend: Rogue Galaxy already proves this.

Added Valkyrie Profile: Lenneth. Kind of weird given how the original VP's already there, but hey. Plus different difficulties/endings.

Edit: Didn't notice the double post, but it's been three days anyway.

Beat Valkyrie Profile: Lenneth and got the A ending. Shouldn't have went and spoiled myself just monthes ago when Silmeria was announced, but ah well. May dabble in the Seraphic Gate later.

It is worrying they haven't said a thing at E3, but I don't think they'll go away that quickly - it /is/ run by Square USA's ex-president, so he's got plenty of experince.

Looks like the delay's unofficially confirmed.

Eh. Duno how trustworthy that is, as both DQ Heroes and FFIII are slated on their site to come out later than September while Square's site still insists both will be out in September, but then they have yet to put a page up for VP2, which is supposed to be out then too. Nevertheless, the burden's lightened.

Edit: Wait, DQ Heroes is still set to Septemer (or was pushed back up after Square announced the official date), while FFIII is missing from IGN's story of Square summer releases. Well, guess those amongst us that want Rogue Galaxy this year are fucked! And possibly those of us that wanted FFIII long before FFXII came out. But we were kinda fucked in that regard no matter when it came out.

Didn't really forget, but I just don't have any use for them. Don't hate them, and you can sometimes just fuck off with them, such as right now. But how many of our topics really need them anyway? I suppose it could e interesting for some games, to see how many got it, but the only game I think that'd be remotely interesting for is VP:L, and that's just to see how many people actually A. have it, or B. are willing to get a PSP just to play it.

Also, for ppl who said "should be on DS..." why? What purpose would the touch screen and/or dual screen serve?

While these aren't strong enough reasons to move it over to the DS, the fact you can use to the touch screen for selecting panels to move to and the like /could/ be useful. It wasn't the best controlling for AW:DS, but it was functional, and something as simple as an option to use buttons to access the menus and stuff while using the stylus for panel selecting would probably make it work that much better than what AW:DS did (control completely with the stylus). And of course, you could use the top screen to show various stats on the battle, like what troops there are and their current HP/MP, and detailed information on selected ones.

Outside of those, I can't really think of anything that'd benefit more from being on the DS.

Edit: Also, while I initially brushed off what MonCaptain said as being overly cynical and nitpicky about what was said, I gave that some further thought and I think he has a point. Level 5's great, but part of that is because they're not afraid of trying something experimental, then refining it with a later installment. DC2 and, and likely RG to some extent, built off  of the successes and failures of DC1, and DQVIII stuck to what the previous DQs did, but making a giant overworld and making the whole thing look great, which DC1 and 2 can be thanked for as well. And the only other game of their's outside of those 4 is TFLO, which was cancelled so it's hard to tell how they'd fair in other (sub)genres.

However, I think that can also show that, should this game fail, it's sequel be that much better for it.
