There's actually a fair bit of cockfighting here in Hawaii. Except unlike in Sleeping Dogs, they usually tie razor blades to the roosters' talons to cause even more damage.

 

Pretty sick stuff.

I've never seen a cockfight that doesn't have the razor blades.  It's how they get the birds to kill each other.

Nah, they do it without as well. Roosters can cause serious damage and kill each other with their spurs alone. I was just saying that because in Sleeping Dogs there don't seem to be any razor blades.

 

 

EDIT: They'll even kill each other WITHOUT spurs... Roosters are ridiculous.

I've never seen that, but I believe.  A rooster pecked me once and made me bleed.

My local cousin had friends who had cockfighting roosters. Just screwing around with their dad's roosters (no razors) one of them slashed the other one's throat open and killed it. His dad was pissed.

More games I don't have. You're killing me here, Playfire.

 

Oh well. I do have Fez and...whichever other game are facing off and will inevitably go head to head tomorrow.

Which is what I was saying in our conversation earlier. Playfire isn't really on top of things, so if they do start trying to ban people once they aren't drowning in other problems, there's no telling whether they're going to ban correctly.

 

That guy got unbanned, but considering the slowness of Playfire support, and how often they just plain ignore people, the happy ending in that guy's case may not be the same across the board...

 

 

 

Okay, so that means not only are you stealing from GMG, but you're also taking money out of their pocket because they now have to pay the pub/dev for the game you just "bought legitimately" with exploited reward money that you got for free.

 

Explain to me again how that's not piracy? Or in fact worse than simple filesharing piracy with cracks?

 

Like I've said multiple times, I'm not crying over GMG losing profit because of this whole thing. But it's obvious that if all the SAMing persists, the reward system is going in the crapper sooner rather than later, which sucks, because it's actually a good idea and rather fun.

 

http://en.wikipedia....acy_of_software

 

I think that will sum it up... 

 

Simply put GMG is not the copyright holder of any of the games they sale... 

 

Now, if you want to say people are stealing and the act is thief.  Go for it. 

 

But it sure as hell isn't fucking piracy...

So Playfire hasn't transferred my rewards for 2 days (yes, I've done the login/logout deal) now. I bet those sneaky bastards are just waiting for me to open a ticket. The fix is in boys, get out while you can. Those bastards won't take me alive.

So the other day I received credit for 6 rewards I was missing via support from the magical Thomas, which weren't tracked (including Monaco).

Then yesterday, my monaco achievements recorded to my account and I got money for them AGAIN.

I love how contacting them is like a roulette wheel. You might get double rewards or you might get banned. Try your luck!

I'm sick of this. I'm calling the FBI on all you pirates.

I'm going to tell them that you guys are cheating at video games, and getting credit for cheating. Then after you cheat you buy more games with your credit you earned by cheating.

The FBI hates cheaters.
This will be dealt with swiftly I'm sure.

Playfire hasn't transferred my rewards for 4 months. I think you're safe.

Although, if you add them all up quick math says one would get $5.60 in total.

I only got the "first time" on Arkham city (I had the vanilla version with some hours played, but the GOTY is another entry) but thanks to the rewards I tried the achievements and now I know why everybody liked AC a lot more than AA. 

I definitely don't think everyone prefers AC. Personally I enjoyed AA because it was a lot more focused and progression was more rewarding, but to each their own I suppose, both are great games.

I'm not saying I like AC more, I just can understand why a lot of people do. I think both are different. I love AA, that game is fantastic, I played it A LOT. And I'm liking AC too, at the same level, because the world is not as open as, say, GTA. You can go fooling around discovering stuff, but with certain limits. Is definitely not a sandbox

Yeah same here. AC is actually my least favorite Arkham game. AA is also my favorite followed by Origins. I liked the pacing better in those games.

Chalk me up for another AA > AC vote. Arkham City isn't bad since it's mostly just more of the same, but the pseudo-sandbox didn't really do enough to justify its existence, and the story is so utterly ridiculous I just can't take any aspect of it seriously.

You all are crazy.  I played and loved both AA and AC.  I can't really say I like one more than the other.  (Mind you I 100% collectable'd AA, and beat AC in NG+ and have most collectables.)  I'm not a Batman or comic book fan, so it's mostly gameplay (and the dribble of story)... the fanservice does nothing.

 

The fundamental truth is: AC is an easier game.

 

I also liked some of the more interesting environments of AC, such as the tower.

I agree with you mostly. What I did like better about AC is the combat. Everything seemed more fluid and there were more options. 

 

Also, playing as Catwoman and Robin was tons of fun. They weren't radically different from Batman, but it did add some variety.

 

Finally, regarding the "open-world". The major plus of AC over AA is the ease of getting from one place to another. Think of the city as more of a hub to the minor levels than as one big sandbox. I found it to be tedious getting from one end of the AA game to another. Plus, any fan of Batman has got to at least see some appeal to flying about a city at night, dropping from rooftops into a crowd of thugs.

My feelings echo Mr Squirrel's, but I still enjoyed AC for the things it did differently. If AC was just a direct copy of AA I think I would have gotten bored of it faster, even if in the end I will say I preferred AA's more compact focus.

My main problems with AC had to do with the story, which relied on too many implausible (yes, implausible in a Batman context) coincidences and twists, and an inherently stupid concept (Arkham City itself.) I also didn't love the open world, it was thankfully easy to traverse but kind of hollow and pointless. And it gets real old, real fast hearing random inmate chatter about how cold they are or how much they want to bang Catwoman or Harley.  :roll:

This!  Yep.  I was worried I was misremembering but AC's combat was more fluid and had more options.  I rather enjoyed Catwoman's challenge levels; it was a different style.  I don't remember Robin at all (wasn't out?  forced myself to forget?).

 

YESS.  I crossing the AA map got tedious quickly.  I really enjoyed boost-gliding over the AC rooftops, and getting to place again (e.g. for collectables) wasn't a pain (well, up the tower took a little bit).  I really loved the "getting a drop" on thugs.  It felt very batman-y (though my Batman media is limited a the 90s movies and a few episodes from the '60s series.)

Yes, the AC premise was outlandish, but meh and move on and enjoy it for what it is.  It's a comic book anyways, realism is out the window.  (e.g. batman can't generate enough aerodynamic lift from his cape, to boost-glide, but that doesn't mean I don't enjoy boost gliding).  Were you expecting balanced debate over whether Debussy or Ravel had a greater hand in shaping Impressionist music?

I didn't receive any from March 30th,  and the ones I did get prior  weren't transferring. They transferred 2 days ago. Since then my games have been activating and xfering almost instantly. (I did submit a claim).

Like anyone online is referring to copyright infringement when they say they're pirating a video game or a movie.

 

"Hey, I'm gonna go pirate the new Captain America movie and watch it tonight!" 

 

Yeah, I was totally referring to copyright infringement above.

 

Yes, GMG is still paying the pub/dev if their game is sold. I never said otherwise, since that's obvious. You're picking on semantics when you know I'm talking about stealing in general, and I even used the term stealing in my original post. And like I said, since GMG has to pay the pub/dev for sales of their games, they're actually LOSING money each time a purchase is made with exploited Playfire funds. So not only are you "stealing" a game (heaven forbid I use the word "pirate"), you're technically stealing money from GMG.
