Dead Game News: Atlus sues fans for preserving their game

New Dead Game News, has a bit of a twist at the end. Will resume the normal videos before long. I’m not counting DGN against my countdown for a big push on the movie since this was unplanned and only took a couple days.

When it comes to preserving games, I fully side with the illegal actions of desperate fans, even if that won't actually get us anywehere in the long run.

I think all preservation will ultimately be quasi-illegal if not straight-up illegal if copyright and such aren't reformed.

I really am so tired of living in something that does a very good job of looking like a civilisation, but actually stopped being one at least a generation ago.

The cycle is well-known.  Barbarism -> Civilisation -> Decadence -> Collapse -> Repeat.  We're now well into the decadence stage.

Those who resort to game piracy just as a means to keep using the goods they bought and paid for (or arguably even those who avail themselves of the efforts of less scrupulous pirates in order to achieve this end), have basically realised the decline-and-fall is in full swing, are disgusted by the decadence of the disinterested elite who now all-but-openly swindle us as if it were their birthright to do so (and waste the wealth they bilk out of us on such absurdities as NFTs, which might as well be the Faberge Eggs of our generation), and are jumping ahead of the curve into the barbarism phase of the next cycle, which is to say behaving in a way that isn't sufficiently scrupulous to pass as civilised, but that nevertheless has a basic code of honour and decency tempered by sheer pragmatism.

It's only been over trivialities like games so far, but it'll probably be over food and fuel soon enough.  I don't remotely like that this is happening but, if the powers that be continue to flout their end of the social contract long enough, sooner or later everyone else stops holding up theirs.  Noblesse oblige, ou noblesse décapitée.

http://blog.perpetuum-online.com/ <- that would at the least be closer to what one should do when dropping a game online or offline

This is possibly one of the highest compliments you could have given me; thank you, kind sir or madam.

Now, if you'll please excuse me, I have an appointment with a stop sign.

Hi everyone, I've been a fan of accursed farms since that freeman's mind episode where he launches a missile; only registered a few days ago though.

Anyway, it's kind of hypnotizing to watch Ross drive around the night city while talking about games being killed.

Greetings, it's always nice to meet another fellow transistor.
