That had more to do with demigod being a substandard game with no demo from a company whose only recent products were:psrdirector said:didnt Demigod getted pireted to all hell? kinda proves your best way to avoid being pirated argument dont it
Yea it did, kinda shows that people stealing ahs very little to do with Getting back at the man, and mroe to do with being greedy
-A very bug prone system hog that didn't work on most systems.
-An even more buggy console port of that game.
-An expansion that switched out the bugs for all round mediocrity.
-Another buggy port.
-A generally shitty diablo clone.
You can see that they were kind of running low on customer goodwill at that point.
Personally, i have the theory that new, bad and console oriented developers get pirated more because people are wary of their capabilities. Stardock, Blizzard and Valve don't seem to be bothered by it and what they have in common is that they are all old, PC centric and known for their quality. Where the ones that usually vocal about pirates are either new(Crytek, 2D Boy), console based(Ubisoft, EA) or have been producing bad games(Epic, Gas Powered).
And on the topic of Supcom 2: Demigod and the demo did not improve the above situation at all. I was one of the few people that got Supcom 1 working and loved it but the new one plays like a very sluggish and poorly balanced starcraft. Seriously, do cybran EVER need any units beyond Salems, Corsairs or Adaptors?
