But it is indeed a constant, that the pirated copy can be relied on while the legal should never be depended upon wholly. At least piracy will preserve these games for the future, while DRM prevents or slows doing that.

Be very careful with the laptop's heating. It may make or break, so do research. Find other people who own that laptop and ask them about it.

I have no issues with piracy and prefer it exists any day over being abolished, but it's indeed ridiculous when buying the game doesn't get you to dodge all of this stuff while piracy lets you.

I come from a background where piracy is rampant. (It still is where I live). I can't see any reason why pirated games Just Work but then DRM'd games require what they require. And yes, IAPs turn me off as well. How nice to see PC games have both of those.

Now, the most cautious way to actually be satisfied with a legit game is to buy it years after the fact, and hope any updates don't screw it over. A faint hope though.

Though I don't think PC has an advantage when it comes to the games itself as you point out. Those gem indie games are also present on Android and Switch, and having an Android phone can be a boon if you fight past the shovelware on Google Play's displays.

How many of you are on 1.14? by Lambdadelta in Minecraft

Also I know this is two months old, but am enjoying optifine 1.14.4. Really was worth the wait, the loading was strange in all ways without it. Still, thanks for the reminder!

A modder? Interesting! If you won't mind, what are you writing?

Understandable. Just the lighting engine rewrite probably made modding a little harder. Wonder how long it would be until OptiFine 1.14 is out.

I'm going back to full time Piracy by Tblaze7 in piracy

In addition to the crap the copyright trolls often get away with (unless they don't), there's also the thing with DRM being increasingly all over the place and even more abusive.

But I guess businesses still insist on making the pirated copy be the better product...in the name of fighting piracy.

Very, very accurate.

Especially the part about eating quality and producing mere quantity.

Well, my name is based off a character, and I was happy to be able to claim it - no underscores or numbers. It's not my only username though.

Can anyone recommend me some 2d games? by MysticViolence in PCGaming

(Huh, the topic is 5 months old)

Ah, VVVVVV must be mentioned. Game is short, simple, sweet and difficult (although not all that tough). In addition, the game has a level editor, which means you can download levels from the distractionware forums. If you don't want the main campaign and want the custom levels (or just want to get an idea of the game), the Make and Play Edition is available completely free of charge.

Also the soundtrack is one of the best retro chiptune OST you could listen to.

know what games you play

That's a given with time tracking and their "social stuff," but according to a recent news, they're exposed in such a way that Epic can harvest them in the background. And to be honest, I wouldn't be surprised if it was intentional.

You don't own any games for real

As a DRM solution themselves, they can also enforce this idea by denying you from playing if they can't log you in for whatever reason (offline "mode" broken, your account deleted, etc), while claiming it's to fight piracy.

Lucky Patcher died

Okay, I'll admit I haven't been paying really close attention to Android before this year, knowing that my previous phone was barely even capable of running some normal apps like Uber, let alone games, but in which way did Lucky Patcher die?

It is installed on my phone right now, and it's constantly updated (well, whenever I open it that is), even though I'm not rooted. I use it to modify APKs, although some of my usages often fail and I go to another desktop app to succeed with it. So I am curious. Did it lose its spirit? Change developers?
