Croissants RELOADEDon July 18, 2008 at 10:13 pm
So. Imagine this if you will. You see a man, a lackey. He realizes that many people that have tried to buy their game in the way that is in fact BEST for the company (no storefront overhead) can actually not, in fact, play the game. He brings this up with his boss, who brings it up with his boss and so on. The CEO has no idea whats going on, and drifts off into dreams of pastry delights. It then gets passed all the way back down until the person that is now responsible for creating a fix is in fact just a forum moderator that noticed a lot of people typing in CAPS. So, he downloads the NoCD crack for the game (Created by the group RELOADED), renames the .exe and BAM. 3 hour lunch. If you dare, continue reading this sordid little tale here.
The last bit is a tad older, and I like to imagine that CEO Yves Guiellmot sits in his office, laughing at his own cruel irony. (Yes, that ironing IS delicious) The country that his little studio started in, that he was born in, cannot actually purchase his games on Steam. In fact… nobody outside North America can. Why is that sir? Oh wait, you haven’t given a valid reason. Right. Also, why when you install a game from Ubisoft (pronounced you-bee-soft, not oo-bee-soft, you knuckle draggers) does a little program PowerREGISTER show up in my task manager? Surely you just want to save me from viruses and other bad things. And why have you stopped giving review copies to EGM? Oh right, because your games were crap and for once a publication actually called you on it. You got mad, picked up your video games and went home. Classy sir, you just reached the emotional maturity of a 5 year old.
Sorry, that’s not fair. The kindergarten kids I teach are much more mature than that.
