Finally Broke My Crowdfunding Rule
By oblivion437
Posted on 01/12/15
I've had a long-standing rule to avoid getting involved in any sort of crowdfunded activities.  I didn't donate to Shadowrun or Wasteland, but I did buy and enjoy both of them (I'm plugging both of those games right now, just so you know they're good).  I haven't...

What is the Extended Download Service (EDS)?
EDS essentially allows you to download your purchase again for up to two (2) years, in the event your computer crashes or the downloaded file becomes damaged or corrupt. It can be thought of as an insurance policy in case anything goes wrong with your computer or the downloaded product. When you have downloadable items in your order, you will see a link to add EDS to your order on the shopping cart page or the checkout page. Upon payment of the specified fee, Digital River, Inc. ("DR") agrees to provide you (the "End User") a service that enables the End User to make multiple downloads of digital computer software products (a "Product" or "Products") purchased in a single order (an "Order") and downloaded from this Web site (the "Site") for a period of two (2) years after the date the End User purchases the Product (the "Service"). Click here for full details about EDS.

To purchase EDS for download products in a completed order, you must look up your order and complete an additional purchase.


That's what I read when I redeemed my free Far Cry 3 coupon. Move over, Origin. Ubishop is coming to Craptown.

Microsoft using their cameras to make sure there's not too many people watching you play, games no longer being owned by the purchaser, $10 online passes, always-online, install limits.

You know what? Fallout:NV was excellent. I propose 'Gaming' stopped in 2010.
We're now in the spunkgargleweewee generation. I propose that become the new term.

Keep in mind these guys are the creators of the "always on DRM" stuff. So this shit makes total sense.

And hey, last year we got Dark Souls and Deus Ex: HR. And this year we got, uh...

So, yeah. At least until last year.

If only they could have mixed I liked 3 but also acknowledge that NV did some things better. If only they had a way of mixing the two into a super awesome fallout.

They did do that.

And then they called it Fallout: New Vegas.

Once obisidian make the next fallout game for the durango/PS4 and port it over to PC, i'll have no reason to continue gaming.
I'll play it and Civ4 until i give up hope for the human race somewhere between 2015-2025 and fill my car with thermite+ice before hitting a tree at 240km/h.
Explode into the afterlife with style.
Or, if no afterlife, at least i leave behind a big mess.

Just like everything else you say, that's really not going to happen.

Honestly, Obsidian and Bethesda sort of hate each other due to the aftermath of New Vegas.
