Im wondering how you guys even know about this stuff.

Kinda makes me wonder how many of you are actually gamers and how many of you are destroying the gaming industry for everyone else.


SMH @ that response... there have been articles, TvTropes page, discussions in gaming forums.

Radiant Historia - Bland story

Is this for real?

Edit: it's not, but it would have fooled me.

Didn't know there was a TvTropes page for this. Thanks for destroying the next 8 hours of my life, you ********ing *****.

You don't have to read that junk if you don't want to.

I recommend you don't. Awful site made by crazy people.

I have bought all my systems new, never modded any of em and never bought or tried to download a game that wasn't legal.

Not once have I seen anything like this.

Yeah because no sites report on them (like how gamesradar did a article on the funniest DRM on the DS).

And to your second statement, Idk I feel like a gamer. I mean I spent two days trying to decide what games out of my 700 games I own (besides psn/xbla/steam/VC/eShop stuff) to take with me to my new place of residence. My "products" just makes it easier to carry the stuff I bought and backed up myself.

I want to read this article, but I can only find the one for funniest DRMs on all consoles/mediums. Was that the one?

I know what your talking about isn't that the one that talks about dial a pirate for monkey island?

http://www.gamesradar.com/square-enix-wins-battle-against-game-pirates/

that's one of them I can't seem to find the one were they talked about a few more (I'm starting to think it wasn't there...)

Most of the DRM on the DS I know about is from personal experience (just said meh played the real cart waited till it was fixed and ripped the game and save and I'm good). I'm still kinda miffed at Pokemon HG/SS/Black/White having the IR in the cart messing with ripping save files >_>. I lost a cart and sooo many pokemon with it.

I was planning to play one of my legally purchased games this evening, but now I'm worried that the game industry might be destroyed by the time I get home!

Think of me what you will, but it seams this is a problem that only people using pirated games need to worry about.

If thats the case, well I find it too hard to feel sorry for someone that stole a game and now it doesn't work right.

I dont actually look up to see what happens to people that used pirated games because its something ill never need worry about.

It's not that I don't got a full 6 pack, I just lack the plastic thing that holds it all together.

Found on TV Tropes: Michael Jackson The Experience plays vuvuzelas over the music.
