  1. And it keeps coming back to this... How many is 'enough'? What is the definition of 'good' in this context? Not everyone lakes all games in the same genre, even if done well. (many I know love Starcraft, but hate Command & Conquer, and vice versa) Enough is relative, and what is enough for you, might not be for others. What is 'good' to you, might be crap to others. What kind of games do you enjoy?
  2. Honestly, pirating AAA games at this point is like a saving grace. You think they deserve the money for what they do these days? They *know* they put out buggy uncompleted shit, they just don't do anything about it because they know it will get sales anyways. I pretty much never pirate games other than emulators but if I could run them in the first place and I knew how to get reliable/safe downloads, I would definitely pirate the shit out of AAA games. In the state they generally are in, I'm not going to spend even $20-30 on a 1-year old game. EDIT: This is, sadly, still including games that are rushed to completion. You're generalizing. What you do with those kind of games, is refund them if you already have bought them, wait til they are fixed and/or on sale, or just buy games which function properly. There are enough good ones of those, and you are supporting well developed and supported games at the same time. It also applies to Indies.
  3. What are you talking about with the release dates? I'm talking about when it first unlocked on Steam, which is the exact same moment across the globe, local time does not matter. Less than an hour after it unlocked there was a torrent for the Digital Deluxe edition out for use, already cracked. What do you mean a "campaign"? Honestly, I was expecting it to take about a week before anybody cracked it. It's from a lesser known cracker, so he probly doesn't do what the rest of the scene does, and wait a week or two for the initial sales to die down. (the scene's typical of a week or two is much better IMO, both for devs, and for people in general) I honestly wouldn't be surprised or upset if XCOM 2 devs were upset about it being cracked and released an hour after unlock, but the least I can do is tell them I WILL be buying this ASAP. I misread their graphic of when they were releasing the game. But then I'm still confused on why you need to torrent the game, if you're intending on buying it asap, and the game torrent was available after release. Wouldn't it be faster you buying the game first of all? It also had the option to preload the game, so even download rate wouldn't matter between Steam and the torrent client.
  4. But that's the point, they're not being sold here! There is literally no other way of getting these games! It's awful... Okay, I was looking at other versions of the games, though you actually can get Fear on Amazon through a trilogy pack. I would still recommend imports, as long as it's total price is reasonable. If all else fails, and you want to play the game so badly, sure I won't judge (not that it would atter) It's not that common in Germany anymore though.
  5. I don't want to go into a deep discussion on the topic, but you certainly do not "HAVE" to pirate them. You'd be inclined to do it if the game wasn't being sold at all. But even then, you have the option to buy other games, of which there are many. However I understand the frustration of games being censored here. How about release day? XCOM 2 was torrentable in a fully functioning form less than an hour after it was released. (i am getting it now, simply because I want to play now, and will definitely buy it ASAP, so no lost sale) Aren't the release dates just one day apart? And are you going to start a new campaign for that?
  6. The podcast isn't part of Polaris anymore but property of TotalBiscuit. So basically anyone can appear on it including wrestling stars^^ I'm not sure of what the rules were, at the time Ross left Machinima though.
  7. It was pretty awesome and enjoyed it quite a bit
  8. I was specifically referring to the Co-optional podcast
  9. Was a great Podcast, really enjoyed it Hope to see you there Ross some time in the future again. Although if it will just have been a one-time thing, I'm very glad it happened anyway
  10. Everyone can watch it, though the chat will be set to subscribers only and the vod on Twitch(!) won't be accessible unless you've subscribed. Which isn't a big deal since it will be up on his YouTube channel a day later for everyone to enjoy : ) I'm REALLY excited for this podcast, as I have silently hoped it would come to happen one day, but I didn't really expect it to. Better yet I can watch it live on my Birthday, so that day is saved Same here. Generally speaking this is one of my favorites out there because it doesn't take itself too seriously. TB's dry sense of humor meshes well with the wackyness of his other regular contributers like Dodger/Cox. In other words Ross, have fun The last episode was pretty awesome I'm sure this one will be as well

  12. Please don't kill yourself, physically or psychologically. Want you to stick with us for a long time No good if you burn yourself out, seriously. But also thanks, these videos brighten up my day!
