when i attempted to use the trainer my game crashed and attempted to send an error report. i am wondering if they altered it so the trainer would not work. nvm found the issue. changed the numbers and had an overwrite with the kill code lol.
Can't play this yet, but I can't wait now that I've seen it. I wasn't going to get it because of all these marketing ploys blizzard is making to try to keep their income stable for the inevitable downfall of WoW... (not to mention ruining Starcraft)But it very much seems like the Diablo I remember. Give credit where credit is due.
Piracy has been around forever. If a large corp. says they didn't know how bad it was, or that they are trying to stop it, THEY ARE LYING, and if I may be so bold, means you shouldn't buy their product. Even if it's the way the world works (all corps, all people lie), why are you taking it without a fight?
All these plays recently have been an effort to gain better control of the market by increasing sales (in some rather horrifying ways) and adding more "security."
Understand, piracy is a great thing for these businesses. They can have press releases, sell their game for it's added 'security', and do not forget most of all IT IS FREE ADVERTISING. Wanna know a company that uses this? Microsoft (for the OS's, mainly).
I'm not slinging conspiracy, it's not a rumor, it's fact. Take real business classes and you'll hear the same thing. Again, not trying to make some conspiracy, but games are my hobby. If the gamers don't start becoming aware soon, our hobby is going to be ruined!
P.S. Some Ex. of the above 'horrifying ways': -Mass bans for rather petty offenses that do not affect other people in one way or another so that if that person loves the game, they now have to buy another copy. While never guilty of it, I would love if (having been out forever) I could solo all of FFXI with cheats and such. Honestly, I'd probably never play anything else. -Ever notice how hard for the average person to find a demo for every game they wanna try? PC has it easy, but not consoles. Almost any demo that is given by the maker is limited in some game-breaking way. Why can't you just be allowed to play the first full 15 minutes of the game? Wouldn't that be more appetizing to your wallet than a half-broken demo that tells you you can't do this and that. -Cheats are disappearing. Why? Now this one is speculation on my part, but I believe it has to do with all this ridiculous 'artistic integrity' crap. Yes, I believe games are art. But don't fix something that wasn't broken. I want my cheats back. While common sense would say they subtract product longevity, I LOVE doing KOTOR runs about every year with cheats, to refresh on how the story goes (or can go... . And if anything (I call CoD to the stand), should cheats be in all games with single player to 'reduce' the playtime so you go buy the latest one as soon as it comes out?
Yeah, I'm sure this belongs somewhere else... but I had a moment of inspiration (or nerd rage, sue me). So if it has to be moved or w/e, that's cool. Sorry for the tl'dr content, but hopefully somebody somewhere got a lil' something from this. If so... Mission Accomplished.
