GMod is worth the 10€. Anyone who needs to pirate it deserves to be banned from their forum/Steam. Not to mention how easy it is to get stuff on steam including the Paysafecards and Paypal etc.

Even getting someone you know to buy you the game and give them 10 bucks works, Thats what I did for my friend.

Goodjob Garry

Aye. It doesn't matter if it's more of a try-before-you-buy excuse. It's £5.99. If you don't like it, that's not exactly going to be the purchase which bankrupts you. If it was a full priced game then maybe, but not this.

Yeah and the biggest excuse they use for grabbing warez releases is "It costs too much", but yet they would steal things that are cheap games and apps. I wonder how many didn't buy WinRAR or Winzip for example.

Why use WinRAR anyway? 7-Zip does the exact same thing and the 7z compression is better.

Kind of a moot point... both those programs have free versions that do more than most people need them to anyhow.

But I agree. Sometimes I feel the #1 reason for piracy is stupid pricing. $60 for black ops? Geez. Might as well charge my first born to fill my car with gas. Once.

For 30 days they are. Then they get nagged to buy. But they use it that much you would think they would help by buying it to help further the development... but no.

Depends what is being compressed. Uharc is still the best overall.

Meh...I only use 7-zip for extraction since everyone likes using .RAR. I use the archiving tools built into Windows for my personal archiving.

People pirate games that cost less than 10euro? That's quite embarrassing.

It's embarrassing when people pirate games full stop considering the excuses.

"It costs too much". Well, tough ****. Save your money instead of demanding instant gratification.

"I was just trying it out to see if it's worth it". Nice try, but most games have demo versions, so this is a poor excuse. Also, so many people record themselves playing games that you could just look on YouTube and find out what the game play is like.

Not only that, but it's insulting to the developers that people are too cheap to buy their product and would rather steal it.
