RTW... ah the days me and friends used to stay up til 4am battling it out.
<3 MTW2 more though :D
It is an increasingly worrying factor that it'll all end up being dodgy DRM and various activation fees. I've always thought that it's a nice touch to keep old systems/games/whatever that were the bees knees in our day, that way you can still keep the kid in you and show it off to the generations below. I was playing Goldeneye 007 (N64.. yes emulated :( I'm waiting for the funds to collect my old consoles/games again) and my brother was amazed by it when he saw it. Just goes to show that old isn't necessarily dated/rubbish.
Yeah, the whole digital manual thing is pants. They seem to forget CDs still exist, I liked having shelves filled with game boxes and posters on the wall :p that way you could impress all your friends with how many games you had. There's just not that much oomph to it when showing your steam library list on a computer screen..
Ahh LAN Parties.. I miss those :(
DRM is dying out and where it still exists systems like Steam make it easier. Battlefield Bad Company 2 for example had 5 activation limit (you could have it on 5 computers) on the Disk version but on Steam it had unlimted because it was managed on steam. Apple stripped DRM out of their MP3s on i-tunes because it was just counter productive.
Anyone seen E3 this year? Sony (massive on the DRM front) have been effectivly tbagging Microsoft with regards to their lack of restrictions on what gamers can do and DRM in their products.
Brilliant :p but they should have used Kevin Butler! He'd have annihilated Xbox to high heaven.
So what is the actual outcome of the whole 'Used games' issue with Xbox? I can't keep up with all the critics lashing out about it.
EDIT: Microsoft responds to PS4 'used games' bash: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uI__nRSvzxY
I don't often read YouTube comments but this one was particularly funny.
Microsoft, I was looking forward to this system. Now, all I can say is f**k off. And when you've f***ed of, F**k off some more. Keep f****ng off until you get back to where you started. Then f**k off again.
Yeah I chuckled when I read that :p and this one:
"Oh my god it finally happened; someone out-douched Geoff Keighley"
