I think bf4 being made by EA helped, the press had just finished reporting on the bodged release of SimCity and the same publisher repeated the mistake with a second game.Plus a lot of the issues in bf4 were stability related, rendering the game literally unplayable for some. By contrast CoD was just a shoddy port with unoriginal gameplay.Some of the bugs in BF4 also covered the entire player base, such as the server crashes, jittering lag, muted audio and client crashes...
I've never even bought a CoD game, they completely suck on PC these days. I think they get a lot more hate than you believe.
I think he's pointing out that the game didn't run fine for everyone since launch.Although why on earth people are arguing about this is beyond me. If it ran well and you enjoyed the game: bravo.Personally I think they rushed the release to compete with CoD, it wasn't ready at launch and many users, myself included, had a large number of issues.
Hmm, I had a lot of issues with bugs like audio not working. For some reason had to turn off hibernation to prevent a persistent ctd, which was actually the advice of EA support and a known issue.The problems were widespread and common at launch, maybe you were lucky avoiding them, but they certainly existed and were not patched very quickly.I don't think I'll be buying hardline after that, plus I don't have origin installed anymore, EA games always have tended to be a...
To those claimclaiming EA have a good return policy: they don't. It's just a misleading policy. They will give you 24 hours from the moment you started downloading your game (they claim from launching it on their website: staff will say differently when you request the refund) to refund it. And if you ran the game at all, your refund will not be processed. So if it takes you 48 hours to download, or if it runs but is nearly unplayable, you will find it very difficult to...
Actually some countries require a refund policy be in place, primarily for non functional or mis-sold products. I suspect the EU requirements in this regard formed the basis of EA's "great game policy".Having said that, EA have butchered the refund requirements for digital purchases that are supposed to be enforced in all EU member states; and effectively ignored them.
If you are that concerned about unjust laws, I'd suggest directing your energy against video games being sold as a license.This a much more harmful concept than any perceived dangers of over-extending copyright, and it has direct and real implications that are already effecting end users. Companies like EA abuse the hell out licensing to avoid refunding clients, facing issues over release quality, stop re-sales and they even use it to prevent the use of games in...
Ok, let me spell this out for you:1) The hack itself (presumably) doesn't contain Blizzard source code.2) The hack producers are selling mods for a copyrighted product which explicitly bans certain types of modification, their product builds on the copyrighted client and requires it to run. It is not a standalone product, and is useless without Blizzard's copyrighted work.3) Ergo, they are profiting from the copyrighted works of Blizzard. In a way explicitly banned by...
I didn't mean they are literally using Blizzard's code, I meant they are using Blizzard's product as a base for their own.This is not the same, Zenimax's claim involves Carmack's contributions to the company and use of his time whilst under contract to help Zenimax. Not to mention a shedload of other aspects completely unrelated and incomparable.You misunderstood me.And it really does, quite literrally, use copy protected materials. It doesn't run or function, and in point...
I'd also like to add that you have no rights as a potential mod maker.If Blizzard ask you to stop making your mod, there is nothing protecting your rights to continue releasing it. They are quite within their rights to ban modding outright, and insofar as they have allowed it the terms under which they've allowed it are very clearly spelled out and equally clearly breached here.Having said that Blizzard probably wouldn't haven't much luck targeting your average mod maker...
