  1. Interesting that we were writing posts at the same time with very opposite conclusions. Origins does have a nice-looking environment. But it's very samey all-over the place: One city or village looks like many others with just a different layout. And as with Odyssey, the environment is the best thing Origins has going for it. Among long-time fans of the series, people are rating the newer games from best to worst as Valhalla, then Origins, then Odyssey, with Odyssey basically being despised for being barren of any meaningful content and just endless generic everything (
  2. AC4 is indeed a brilliant game. One of the best made, IMO - I don't mean just from the AC series. If you want more of a similar experience after Black Flag, AC Rogue is also very good and is the game in the AC series that's most similar to AC4. AC3 is also very good after its patches, and it's a part of the trilogy that I think goes in the order of AC4 -> Rogue -> AC3. They aren't comprehensively designed as a trilogy, because you play as different characters in each, and focus on different perspectives in the timeline. But those three games together form the Kenway sage, wit
  3. Pirating means stealing. But people who own a game have a right to play that game. So, if they play the game via one copy or another, what are they stealing? The wish of some publishers, misguided and incongruous with the law as it is, is that people wouldn't own their software but only own a license to play the software. If people don't own the software but simply own a right to play it, then it is irrelevant which copy is played with - they are enacting their right to play the game no matter which copy of it is played. But as people do own their copies of their game,
  4. EULAs count for nothing as they have no authority to override actual laws concerning people's people's rights over their property. People are fundamentally allowed to modify their own property, even if a software publisher claims otherwise. Further information on that is in this post: Understanding software licenses and EULAs: You own the software that you purchase
  5. I would say that the onus lies with those seeking to argue the opposite. What's established in law is that people are entitled to bypass DRM when doing so is necessary to secure usage of their video game, software, movie, music, book, etc. Using a ROM to play a game sounds like it's fully within the concept and under the umbrella of bypassing DRM to secure the usage of an owned video game when better alternatives aren't available. I think that when a ruling is made, exercising the entitlement granted by the ruling isn't contingent on each conceptual aspect o
  6. Using a ROM to play a game you own but otherwise can't access is an example of bypassing DRM in order to secure usage of your video game when there isn't a better option available - which is legal. If Big House could ensure that those using ROMs in their tournament all owned legal copies of the game, a ROM-based tournament in light of the covid-19 situation should be perfectly legal.
  7. My impression from fans of 1 and 2 is that, to the people who love Shenmue 1 and 2 and who wanted Shenmue 3 to be made, Shenmue 3 is perfect and everything they hoped it would be. It's exactly the same style and kind of experience as 1 and 2, including all its eccentricities which they love and which non-fans take as examples of the game being bad.
  8. No, that isn't Nintendo's complaint against them. Nintendo has targeted their aim to use pirated copies of the game. Modding a game or software that you own is perfectly legal. So, yes, they are justified to mod their own game copies to have any functions they want them to have.
  9. In the US, it's establish in law that people are lawfully entitled to bypass DRM when it's necessary in order to use software (such as a video game) that a person owns. If the people in the tournament own a copy of the game, then they are allowed to use a cracked version to play if there isn't a better method available. This has been ruled on by a US federal court and by the Library of Congress. In the case of the Big House tournament, it sounds like they are bypassing DRM in order to play Super Smash Bros when there is no better way to accomplish their ability to play their game a
  10. This PSU is on sale from Canada Computers for $159.99 + shipping, from Memory Express for $149.99 with $8.99 shipping, and from Amazon for $149.99 with free shipping. Memory Express and Amazon are out of stock, while Canada Computers has online stock and maybe some store-location stock still available. But Amazon lets people place an order while the item is out of stock and it will ship to them once it is back in stock. So, ordering now will secure the sale price. Also, Amazon won't charge you until your order ships. Amazon.ca link: https://www.amazon.ca/Cor

  12. It's not entirely a new method (though the report suggests the tactic is now being extended to single-player gaming), but I'm glad EA are being sued for it. They aren't the only company that should be sued over it.

  13. Your computer is yours, and so is your software - which is why people should take offence and pursue legal action when what is theirs is abused by tech companies to do things like steal their data or generate data for the company, use their electricity for commercial purposes, track their behaviour and enable a company to send people targeted-ads.
  14. The 3080 has 8704 CUDA cores, the 3090 has 10496. And the 3080 Ti is here being rumoured to also have 10496 So, the 3090 likely won't even have a small performance bump over the 3080 Ti. And the 3090's performance bump over the 3080 is already very meagre.
  15. Again sold by Newegg's eBay account. These prices are cheaper than what they have on their website.
