>The founder of notorious Chinese cracking forum 3DM is warning that given the current state of anti-piracy technology, in two years there might be no more pirate games to play. The claims come after attempts to breach the Denuvo security protecting Just Cause 3 pushed the group's cracking expert to breaking point.
RIP in peaces piratefags
First of all, 3DM were never good to begin with.
Secondly, they're P2P group, not scene group.
P2P groups are very low tier in terms of hierarchy of the pirate underworld.
Add to this the fact that 3DM was never very well skilled and you get this defeatist bullshit.
Actual scene (groups like Razor, CPY etc) is most definitely working on defeating Denuvo and not through a shitty loophole that still leaves it working (like the 3DM "cracks" have been doing) but actually cracking it aka removing it from the executable entirely.
It took a long time to crack StarForce and SecuROM but in the end when scene finally cracked them, they were unpatchable because they were destroyed on the core level and not just a loophole.
The same will happen to Denuvo in due time, it's all about patience.
For your info, the 3DM cracks were not even cracks, they were using loopholes that fooled Denuvo into thinking the game was legit and Denuvo itself is still running when you're using those "cracks". Not to mention how those cracks are completely bugged and for heavily outdated game versions. 3DM are garbage and so are all P2P groups. P2P exists to supply shit where scene doesn't care, not to crack shit. P2P groups by definition don't have necessary skills.
You're either a moron, a sensationalist, a false flagging consolefag or all of those.
Thank you for posting this. The article in the OP has been sweeping the net like wildfire, being shared by people who don't understand that it's all coming from a statement made by one person at 3DM, which isn't even a big cracking group to begin with.
I don't know much about the scene, but I do know that 3DM were the first and only (for a long time at least) guys to crack The Sims 4 successfully.
I think you're not giving them enough credit, even if the article is bullshit.
>increases spec requirements way beyond what they would be without it
if every release had denuvo it would hurt PC gaming more than anything.
PC gamers aren't normies or casuals by definition, so most of us won't buy into that shit
They didn't crack Sims 4. They made a shitty launcher that impersonates Origin and makes the game think it's running on a legitimate Origin account. That's not a crack.
Stop using words if you don't know their definitions.
That's a half assed loophole.
Scene by definition don't make such things.
It's one of the rules of scene that you need to make a legitimate crack. A launcher that still leaves the DRM itself running is not a crack.
Literally everyone in the scene knew about it, they can't use it because that's not allowed by scene rules. Get it through your thick skull you fucking retard.
Scene doesn't exist to supply piracy to the masses. Scene exists to reach new milestones in the underground coding world. Mass piracy is just a side effect of that. It wasn't a crack, it was shitty launcher, for a heavily outdated verison of the game, that doesn't support DLCs and expansion or even patches, that still leaves Denuvo running and scanning your hard drive in real time, that still is buggy and has issues.
You are a fucking tech illiterate retard.
PC gaming is literally for casuals though
I don't give a shit about scene rules or underground coding milestones. Why would I? Why would anyone? I care about games being pirated, preferably as soon from their release as possible, and 3DM succeeded in that regard. Stop completely discrediting them just because they didn't abide by your rules. They allowed me to play Sims 4 for free and that's what matters.
>a heavily outdated verison of the game, that doesn't support DLCs and expansion or even patches,
To be fair. TS4 is fully working and updated with newer DLC and expansions.
So is a lot of other Denuvo games, like DA:I.
Granted I do think 3DM is talking out their ass and it will be properly cracked down the line. Always bet on the pirates.
>I care about games being pirated
What's he point wasting all those ressources to hack a game if the devs can just aply a patch to make it unusable?
You do realise the inefficiency of such a method
They allowed you to play outdated buggy version of Sims 4 with even more bugs on top caused by their shitty half assed launcher.
If you enjoy garbage like that then enjoy you subhuman trash.
>openly admitting to playing Sims
>openly admitting to being a turbocasual
>So is a lot of other Denuvo games, like DA:I.
That was CPY with a proper crack, not a launcher.
They did the same to Lords of the Fallen.
Also Arkham Knight on release version but the re-release version has the new Denuvo which requires doing the whole work from scratch.
you're right, but making a crack for a game takes a long time, and as of now Just Cause 3's crack is taking a long time to release, eventually crackers are just going to say "fuck it and fuck this" and won't do it. why? because who the fuck wants to crack a shitty game for an entire month, hell its been 5 months since MGS V has released and there are STILL no cracks. 2 things will happen
1. crackers give up and pirating dies, only a few games won't or can't pay for denuvo
2. crackers will either want to get paid or want more money for cracking games
MGS5 has a shitty 3DM launcher for outdated version of the game that's also buggy and flat out crashes at the end of hospital mission (both prologue and mission 46). You also can't open doors unless you aim a gun at them. And there's some other issue I don't remember right now that's also pretty annoying.
Obviously this. Let's add to that that the old groups mostly retired.
Scene piracy was a different beast from the beginning, it's from there that the idea you should be able to try things before buying them was created, and those "pirates" certainly were among the biggest buyers. It only shifted once scene content leaked outside of the scene, and eventually made its way to P2P which most of the scene had always opposed because it was unsecure.
And well, the new groups, aswell as those continuing the old ones, certainly are bad. The effort to crack games really diminished, as the quality of games decreased, until nothing felt worth trying before buying. Moreover, Denuvo was made by former crackers, which really are assholes when you think about it.
Denuvo isn't that hard to crack, it only takes proper skill, which is lacking these days.
>They allowed you to play outdated buggy version of Sims 4 with even more bugs on top caused by their shitty half assed launcher.
Yes. but it's not outdated now. At least not any more than most other pirated games.
>If you enjoy garbage like that then enjoy you subhuman trash.
Didn't say I enjoy it. Just said that you were wrong and spouting bullshit you are to retarded to even check up for yourself.
>Scene doesn't exist to supply piracy to the masses. Scene exists to reach new milestones in the underground coding world. Mass piracy is just a side effect of that.
Do you really believe that? There are far more important things to utilize such skills on than cracking videogame DRM - unless you really want to crack videogames to supply pirate copies.
>So is a lot of other Denuvo games
That's because same Denuvo versions were shared between games. For example, once Denuvo 1.0 got cracked, games like BF:H and Lords of Fallen became playable. Once Denuvo 1.1 got cracked initial versions of games like MGSV and Mad Max became playable. But newer patches added denuvo 1.2, which still is uncrackable.
MGS5 and Mad Max were never cracked, they just have a launcher that imitates Steam and they're both horribly buggy.
MGS5 bugs see here >>323006518
Mad Max flat out crashes if you open the map (has about 50% chance to crash on opening map), you can't use the shotgun and it has random crashes on top of that.
Only Battlefield Hardline, Arkham Knight 1.0 and Lords of the Fallen were actually cracked, by CPY and not 3DM.
New Denuvo which they are most definitely working on cracking.
>starting to get behind
Hardline, LotF and DAI took months to crack as well.
And it's not the first time a new major DRM popped up and stalled games for months or even years. See Splinter Cell Chaos Theory and Tom Clancy's HAWX which took years to crack. I believ it was 2 years for HAWX and 7 months for CT. All because of StarForce and SecuROM.
Shit, I had all but forgotten about that place. So much shit goes down there usually, actually I wouldn't be surprised if a scene at some point bought something from them.
>there are people who welcome the future of shrekt SSDs and shite performance
DRM is cancer m8elini
>being an impatient little shit
>not just playing your backlog in the meantime
>having such a shitty life that it revolves only around brand new games
>Giving a shit about when you play some AAA shit title when you have a gorillian games to play anyways
Not that anon, but I only download AAA shit to check out how broken and shitty it is. I don't really care about them.
>that's not allowed by scene rules
>. Scene exists to reach new milestones in the underground coding world
Wow these guys sound like cunts.
> It wasn't a crack,
by the standards of some weird community that doesn't actually care about results?
Or are you suggesting there's an official definition outside of your odd little sect?
>DAI took months to crack as well.
Isnt the pirate version of DAI stuck at some patch level after they nerfed things but before they re balanced?
for AAA games, I wait for the angry joe review
he is the bottom threshold for taste; if someone that can give gta 5 and skyrim a 10/10, and fucking dragon age 2 an 8/10 says it's shitty, then I don't even bother pirating it
Yeah they are real cunts for wanting DRM to be disabled and the games to be fully working
Stupid entitled little shit. You know, if you must play the newest shitty AAA release at once, console piracy exists. Though with that there's a huge risk of bricking your console, having it banned from online or being forced to play in 30FPS with shit textures
Pick your poison
>I don't give a shit about scene rules or underground coding milestones. Why would I? Why would anyone? I care about games being pirated, preferably as soon from their release as possible, and 3DM succeeded in that regard. Stop completely discrediting them just because they didn't abide by your rules. They allowed me to play Sims 4 for free and that's what matters.
Enjoy your shitty Chinese malware and wait for the big boys to bust this shit open
Now you're just talking out of your ass, I've tried both MGS V and Mad Max. Mad Max definetly didn't crash when opening max nor when I had a shotgun equipped. MGS V crashed at the end of prologue true. However its not as fucking bad as you describe it
No, chances are they simply released a new version which fixed those issues but I can link you cs.rin.ru threads to both that have plenty of hands on evidence from fuckton of people that prove 3DM's launcher had those very issues in both MGS5 and Mad Max. I don't know how it is right now but those issues did exist mere 2 months ago.
OP and the other people spamming this across the Internet are shills spreading propaganda that piracy is finished, even though it's not. See all those fucking memes in OP? That's corporate research, that's how the shills have been told kids post on The Internet these days.
It's all just propaganda by a gaming company. Report these threads on sight.
There is actually nothing casual about that genre. It's not a good genre, it sucks dick, but it's not casual. 40 min match times for a game that requires a shitload of knowledge and experience to play competently? That is not casual in the slightest. Scrub leagues and containment zones are just placebos for people that companies know won't stick around but still hope they'll spend money
this is only the first step to ultimately lock down games and prevent modding all together, mark my words. the endgame is killing user made content and only good goy dlc will be allowed.
>securom is unbreakable, piracy is done for!!
>starforce is unbreakable, piracy is done for!!!!!111
>steam is unbreakable, piracy is done for!!!!
>denuvo is unbreakable, piracy is done for!!!!!111
Not sorry I triggered you. MOBAs are dumbed down RTS games, anon. There is no debate here. You can argue matchup knowledge and experience all you want, but right now MOBAs are the most popular genre on the planet and everyone and I mean EVERYONE plays them in favor of just about everything else.
And it isn't because its "hardcore". It's because of the low skill ceiling, low entry barrier, the F2P model, and how snowballing works. People love that when the ball is rolling in a MOBA match, there is almost no hope for the losing team to make a comeback(though it does happen, often more frequently than some people think but its still insane that most MOBAs fuck over players if they're forced to backpack).
MOBAs are casual as fuck anon. I know people that only play MOBAs and as a result fail at just about everything else when they do take those rare breaks. One girl in particular is a Gold player in League, but thinks Dragon Age Inquisition and Shadows of Mordor are "the best games EVAR" in addition to League. Pay attention to the communities for League and DoTA2 and you will find that YES they are motherfucking casuals and YES they are completely unaware that MOBAs are dumbed down RTS games.
You people think you're playing something really hardcore when you aren't.
>le dumbed down RTS
MOBAs require as much strategy as most RTS games. Whatever made mongs like yourself worship the genre when it plays out the same fucking way in nearly every game. The only exceptions being gook click, which is garbage, and the few actually good RTS which have now been infinitely cloned and badly at that
I take it by your image that you are just an uneducated console fag though. That game is awful and the excuse for music in it is disgusting
>They allowed me to play Sims 4 for free and that's what matters.
Not the guy you're talking with but you're moving the goalposts.
Your original claim was that they figured out how to crack Sims 4 before anyone else. They didn't figure out how to crack it, nor did they figure out how to make it playable before anyone else. I mean, it's great that you don't care and you just want to play it and all, but the point is that their opinion on piracy is irrelevant because they aren't particularly skilled in that area and your claim to the contrary was based on an entirely false assumption.
But instead of realizing your mistake, conceding that you were wrong and moving the fuck on, you're desperately trying to save face in an anonymous argument on the internet. I seriously cannot think of anything more petulant.
Thing is, only shitty companies like Ubisoft use Denuvo. And I neither pirate nor buy their games already, because they can't make good games.
So I don't see this affecting me.
3DM are typical chinese idiots. They did a shit job with the Mad Max and MGSV cracks, they are unstable as fuck and Mad Max doesn't even work on Windows 10.
Someone else will step up to the challenge and crack denuvo.
>MOBAs require as much strategy as most RTS games
You're making me laugh and look down on you. You don't know what you're talking about at all. MOBAs are trash and YOU are trash for being a part of the cancer.
>I take it by your image that you are just an uneducated console fag though.
Hahahaha no. You're a fucking idiot for making that kind of assumption. I've been playing games for decades, no matter the platform because I'm not an idiotic platform warrior.
>That game is awful and the excuse for music in it is disgusting.
Shitty opinion from a shitty MOBA lover. It's like poetry.
Let me lay down the bottom line for you: If you swear up and down that MOBAs aren't casual, no matter who you are: your opinion is misinformed. Swarms totaling in the 100+ million range play your games. The top 1% don't come close to the top 1% of RTS players. You saying "m-muh gook clicking" shows how much of a fucking casual you are. And frankly, no one that knows better about this shitty genre is going to take your opinion seriously.
So, that being the case, why don't you go start up a 45 minute long match of ASSFAGGOTS? You are not convincing anyone that knows better that MOBAs are not casual, anon. I don't even know why you bothered to reply.
>Scene exists to reach new milestones in the underground coding world
Sorry m8, but it's a dick waving contest between the guys who write 0days for 5k-100k a pop.
t. scene topsite hotpocket
You rant about pirates like you own the company or you get any share from the money it gets, let pirates pirate their stuff fucking companies shit more and more shit games that don't deserve the money people spend on them.
why haven't scene groups picked up the slack? do they only crack games if they want to play them? just cause 3 seems worthwhile enough to me? what happened to that russian group that cracked denuvo in like a day or whatever?
I don't own or want anything from any of those and I very much doubt I ever will, so good news for me.
But let's be realistic, it'll be cracked eventually.
You'd have to be a fool to think a security measure can last forever, all it takes it someone clever with the right motivation.
Hard to pick up the slack when they are working for the FBI or in federal prison. Besides with the increase dependency on technology, those savvy with technology no longer need to do WAREZ and shit to actually earn money.
If you are really good, you either get hired by a company or do real big money stuff like hacking and phishing. Why bother cracking games?
Not necessarily true. It took the scene to pick up after Starforce simply because everyone got lazy.
Often geniuses are left unnoticed by the industry.
Circumventing Steam wasn't rocket science. Every script kiddie could do it.
The increase of anti-piracy shilling is worth taking note though.
That explains why it takes 4 fucking gb or ram all the fucking time jesus christ. There is literally no reason for this shit. No other game goes noticeably above 2gb for extended periods but this shit jumps to 4gb immediately with no leak problems.
Starforce got completely cracked in 424 days. How long has Denuvo been around?
>Often geniuses are left unnoticed by the industry.
Geniuses won't do wares. They will be doing actual shit that matters and will net them real cash.
>it's popular so it's shit
>no one matches muh gook clickers
Please tell me why none of them are top players on dota despite the huge prize offerings. Since it's so easy
Grow up le child and go back to reddit
3DM has only risen on the scene because they jerry-rig the launchers to bypass DRM and its the only option for pirates
The real scene crackers have always been tight lipped about cracking new DRM until it has been done
Not really. I know many geniouses who refused to join the industry.
Many of them get sick of getting told what to do and just want to experiment. Money doesn't matter much to many high IQ folks.
Stop letting the shills tell you filthy lies, you're literally feeding the troll.
Also killing the modding scene with DRM doesn't bode well for many devs.
>thinks mobas require as much strategy as rts
>Implying every moba doesn't play almost the exact same
>complaining about infinite shit clones (kek)
Only reason mobas exist is because of rts, it got big because they took a similar skill set from rts, applied it in a different way and lowered the skill floor by making apm not as important
>3DM were never good to begin with
Holy shit you are dumb, 3DM have been the first to crack nearly every game in the last 2 years.
They were also the first to crack Denuvo.
Stay desperate piratefag, soon you wont be able to play any games.
To poor to buy them and no cracks to pirate them.
MarineKing – StarCraft 2 to League of Legends
Scarlett - StarCraft 2 to Dota 2

No they are currently building robots and drones right below me and it's getting kinda creepy. With all them sensors surveillance is kinda easy which freaks me out. They don't even need cameras.
They said they can do it with ultrasound sensors.
>Only team that has managed to crack a version of Denuvo is saying that they're giving up on it because it takes too long to crack each version
>Most people in this thread thinks someone else will crack Denuvo because old crappy drm was cracked in the past
Denuvo will never be cracked and in a couple of years all games will use it. PC piracy is dead.
>The real scene crackers have always been tight lipped about cracking new DRM until it has been done
3DM cracked Denuvo the scene hasn't
3DM 1 - 0 Scene
JC3 has been out for 2 months, where is the scene crack m8?
>3DM cracked Denuvo the scene hasn't
>hurr dis software is impenetrable, no one can ever hack it, it was made by super hackers themselves
i dont know the first thing about coding software but you people are fucking stupid
CPY isn't scene and their crack is based on 3DMs technique. It is also the older version of Denuvo that was cracked using exploits which have now been fixed with v4 of Denuvo.
He's right. The piracy is just a side-effect of "the scene". They only care about who has the most impressive feat, ie. cracking the most recent DRM technology, they don't care about cracking games.
According to yourself there could have never been crackers in the first place.
The span of people you know must be kind of depressing though. Materialistic ICT people are kind of rare in my social circle. I made that same assumption before getting to know many of them.
Some of them are really happy doing seemingly useless shit. It would sadden a meritocracy-monger like yourself.
And the only social use the robots currently have is drive around our kitchen.
>According to yourself there could have never been crackers in the first place.
Technology was as developed in the past. Online banking, phishing, cyber warfare weren't a reality till the last 3 years. Tech genius literally can do anything they want these day. Thinking these people will be crackers for video games when they can be crackers for NSA is hilarious.
>RTS games are hard
m8 have I got news for you
>Online banking, phishing, cyber warfare weren't a reality till the last 3 years.
The fuck are you talking about?
Try decade at least. Shit, phishing is almost as old as the internet itself.
>Only came along in the past 3 years
Dude encyrption has been a thing since ww2.
China and the US have been hacking each other since the ninetees.
Your knowledge about the nsa topic seems kinda lacking.
>China and the US have been hacking each other since the ninetees.
And as technology advances and more and more crucial systems start to rely on technology especially the internet, if you think USA has the same emphasis as it did on cyber security in the past as it did in the ninties you are seriously kidding yourself.

So glad I stopped giving money to ubi since anno 1404.
Might pirate the newest Far Cry, but I'm not even sure if it's worth the effort.
Yes, you chump.
>Originally started in the early 80s
>by 2004 31% of households in the US used online banking
>Your knowledge about the nsa topic seems kinda lacking.
he just got done watching house of cards is all.
he really thinks that if you are capable of cracking a videogame that makes you the l33t3st in coding and encryption and therefor were obviously picked up by some government agency.
They have invested more over time yes.
But that doesn't deprive the market of top-tier ICT people.
Where the money is atm is where companies use ICT solutions to make processes easier. And believe it or not but the employment market in the private ICT sector is quite saturated atm. Especially as states now invest more in getting people into STEM fields.
>Only companies that cry that piracy hurts sales use Denuvo
>The games using Denuvo mostly sell bad
Gee, I wonder if they'll learn the difference between a pirated copy and a missed sale.
>use uncrackable DRM
>games still sell like shit
>people will still blame pirates for this
You know what would increase sales?
Doing their fucking work and adding things that appeal to people who play in PC, like extra graphics settings or mod support.
Even if you use Denuvo, if you release broken pieces of shit like Arkham Knight or Just Cause 3, they'll sell like shit.
This DRM would have been effective 10 years ago, right now it's a pointless waste of money since pirates will either buy it anyway, or just forget about it
The most ingenious game that ACTUALLY happened was that tech guys successfully convinced governments that data retention was a good idea.
Milions of tax dollars are wasted on an anti-terrorism measure that didn't save people in Paris from being mowe down.
What does that have to with anything? TW3 and FO4 were the two biggest games of 2015, they sold more than any game last year.
Keep grasping those straws piratekek, the more you pirate the more games will start using Denuvo and other types of encryption.
>implying i'm going to buy any game with bloated anti-piracy measures that negatively affect performance
>he thinks piracy = lost sale
Sorry senpai, my money goes towards actual developers.
Only talentless hacks who are unsure of the quality of their games use Denuvo, that's why there's not a single good Denuvo game.
nice reading comprehension retard.
hes trying to say that most games that uses Denuvo are shit and sells shit. so the argument that piratefags are the reason of a lost sale is a retarded one.
Why would I pirate a Denuvo game like Arkham Knight if it's shit in the first place?
If you do your work, and release an actual port that you worked on, you'll get my sale.
If you are a hack and made a shitty job, you won't even get a pirate.
>he thinks piracy = lost sale
>he still uses this excuse
No China does it because they overproduce academics atm. They have an overabundance of a certain kind of labor,
If there is no material benefit in piracy then hy did pirates do it in the past? Hardly because it was easier on slower computers,
>Money is the most important thing to me so it must be for everyone.
There is a psychological payoff in defying authorities.Especially the nsa issue has hightened the ICT scene's attention to encryption as well as making it more militant.
>It just goes to show that pirates hardly affect sales.
It doesn't matter, every pirated copy is lost profit.
10 pirated copies is $600 lost 10,000 pirated copies is $600,000 loss in profits and 20,000 pirated copies is $1,200,000 loss in profits.
Yeah people said that shit about the PS3 too, and how it was unhackable and blah blah blah. There is no such thing as uncrackable anti-piracy software. All AP-software can do is delay people for so long that they give up and just buy the game. It'll never stop work for an extended period of time and it never has.
The new golden age of console piracy couldn't have come at a better time
>mfw they have already installed Linux on PS4
>mfw 3DS has been completely blown open
>mfw Wii U about to be blown open too
Last one is the Vita.
>implying you know shit
>implying I'm nsa
I just think that there is a spectrum to skills like coding and encryption and I don't believe that just because you are part of a scene group that cracks games that makes you eligible for a free job with the nsa.
2012, not super recent. But there's your reply.
That was with a very basic google search and the first option.
>It doesn't matter, every pirated copy is lost profit.
>10 pirated copies is $600 lost 10,000 pirated copies is $600,000 loss in profits and 20,000 pirated copies is $1,200,000 loss in profits.
>being this deluded
HOLY SHIT! AHAHAHA
>>implying people that pirated the game would have bought it
Implying that the majority of people who would have pirated it and can't wouldn't go out and buy it.
Stay retarded with your bullshit excuses, I can't wait to see more games use Denuvo.
Denuvo was created ex-scene crackers. It means that the top crackers from the scene left and the shittier ones can't fight them. Sure eventually they will be defeated but it will take time to get enough experience for the newfags.
Just wish CPY wasn't dead.
>But they wouldn't
But they would and you are fucking retarded to think that if you couldn't pirate that people wouldn't buy it.
The only reason they don't buy is because they can easily pirate. If they didn't have the option of pirating they would buy it.
Not all of them would but the vast majority would.
lets just say that everyone who pirates games has enough spare money to afford the game they would otherwise pirate, how exactly would they HAVE TO buy the game?
>majority of people who would have pirated it and can't wouldn't go out and buy it
Guess what, they do not. Unless your game is a smash hit with a hundred million dollar marketing campaign and a christmas release DRM will kill sales, like in the case of Lords of the Fallen.
>I can't wait to see more games use Denuvo.
Sorry senpai, but I think they are going to need to implement Denuvo on the 3DS, Wii U and PS4 if they want to kill piracy, all these are getting CFW.
Piracy can't be killed, simple as that.
I agree with you.
My point was that developers blame piracy all the god damn time.
Here's another one from 2013. Now it's only 2 years.
I wonder if I could look harder and find one from 2014 or 2015. My guess is, Yes.
3DM is just the "lead" because they're pretty much the only ones doing it right now and they've always been awful at it. They might as well not have been in the "arms race" at all.
Oh my. It is current year minus 3. Come on step your game up.
>they've always been awful at it.
Why do you keep talking shit?
They are the only ones that have cracked it, CPY did as well but it was by using the same method as 3DM.
So if 3DM is so terrible where are the cracks from others?, Denuvo has been around for two years now and only 3DM and CPY have cracks for it. Where are all the cracks from these crackers you seem to think can do better.
Two years anon and not a single crack from anyone else, keep talking shit though m8.
Maybe not for you or a minority of others, but for most people, yes. they are.
I find Mega Man games easy as fuck but they still have a reputation of being some of the most difficult games made. Doesn't really give any real credence to making a post or point like:
>Mega Man games are hard LOL
MOBA games are fucking trash. Shut the fuck up you pleb.
Russia is the brink of financial ruin atm.
I suspect it will take two years max and then somebody from some BRICK backwater will turn up and crack it.
And until then not every dev is going to be willing to let his modding scene die for piracy reason.
I played Fallout 4 for free. What's the problem here
Saying Mega Man games are easy is like saying RTS games are easy if you play the first level of the campaign on easy mode.
Playing an RTS at a high level is hard, and blowing through a Mega Man game in 30 minutes is hard. Both are way too hard for casuals to ever attempt.
Another news about nothing happening being blown out of proportions and promising to revolutionize x because some spaz said so.
It's like I'm on /pol/ and this is another "happening", when in reality nothing at all is going to happen and people will forget about this in a week
Fuck, now it's only a few months since game developers blame piracy.
>Greenheart intentionally uploaded a cracked version of its game to torrent sites, but modified a bit of the code.
I know that most pirated games probably aren't 'lost sales', but I can't help but wonder what games would look like today if pirating never happened.
Without having years and years of anti-piracy measures to take inspiration from, would ridiculous DRM services such as Uplay exist?
You do know that isn't skidrow? The real Skirldrow don't have a website.
Don't believe me? Go download any game from there and look in the files, there will be a 3dm.dll, a Ali123.dll or a Codex.dll. They are a bunch of people who make money off the clicks on the download links, they use other peoples cracks, pretend to be Skidrow and people like you earn them money.
Steam is digital distribution platform therefore DRM, Uplay is DRM first and foremost, with additional content for their games locked under system. Also Steam isn't DRM, Steamworks is, there is a number of DRM-free games on Steam that don't use 3rd party DRM or Steamworks
>all these pirates panicking that they will suddenly be 'NO GAEMS'
>steam games that I can freely copy and play everywhere
no shit, shovelware might as well be free
>Steam is a content delivery system
That was primarily made to hinder piracy. WON handled multiplayer just fine in the days before steam.
Really, even Steamworks isn't DRM in and of itself. It's the whole featureset of Steam's social network (high scores, UGC, friend lists, achievements, etc) - but it does also include an option for enabling a DRM check. HOWEVER, this option is disabled by default, and each developer chooses whether or not to use it without any pressure or guidance from Valve.
Steam is DRM first and foremost. It has since added features to disguise this fact.
It's primary purpose was always to provide stronger anti-piracy. Otherwise, WON was doing fine.
cant believe how fucking stupid some of you are, just like the other anon said, what 3DM did was an exploit not a crack, eventually its gonna fall off the face of the Market just like all the other DRMs that they tried to shove down our throats
Give it a year or 2 and denuvo will get fucked. We just need good tools to mess with x64. Till then no one cares enough. Most people who would be doing this kind of stuff just make money with malicious software instead.
Chinks can't into piracy, more at eleven. Literally nobody interested in Just Cause, the only reason why its not cracked yet.
This kind of shit really interests me.
Do we have any idea why something as menial as using the shotgun, or opening a door in MGS V is not possible withh these cracks? As in, what in the coding allows nearly everything else to run OK, but not the aforementioned? Is this some sort of built-in fail safe?
Serious question, I am not trolling
>Wow these guys sound like cunts.
People said the same shit about StarForce in 2006.
Take it from an old fag.
Considering I don't play modern games anymore I don't give a shit.
The gaming industry is going from bad to worse with each new game, so much of that is true I don't want to play the games even if I could get them for free.
Nobody cares what is and isn't factual or credible, they only care that so-and-so said a thing and they want people to react to it. That's 90% of all news stories/articles these days, the other 10% is about violent crimes and wars and shit.
You mean the garbage games only shitters who like Call of Duty and have zero taste overall would play?
Ever since the 2009 there hasn't been one single good AAA game.
