Dispelling the Myths of Videogame Piracy

Hi, this is Russell, Englishman in Canada, and I want to take issue with video game piracy.

After having a polite discussion with one of our admin’s earlier this week about what was acceptable when it came to duplicating videogame software, I was encouraged to take to the stormy seas, otherwise known as the world wide web, to search out the legal ins and out of the subject at hand. As I began my search, I had all the laws and loopholes taught to me by my peers at a young age (the PSOne era) embedded firmly in my head and decided to start checking up on a few of these ‘facts’. I will tell you now that what I’ve found is a much tighter bind than I was even expecting, a lot of stuff users and gamers may do are in fact illegal in the eyes of the law.

Following are a few myths I was taught as fact that I am now going to dispel for you guys, in hope that I can inform and educate you and, in the immortal words of Ice-T, please, ‘Don’t hate the player, hate the game’.

Gaming on a budget? Shop Smart, Game Hard!

Hi, my names Russell and I’m an Englishman in Canada. My life at the moment has two fundamental flaws:

  • 1. I’m addicted to games. Not just to playing them, but to owning them. I must have games!
  • 2. I’m broke. I have a son on the way, and I’m not exactly the most well paid individual this side of the old pond.

I have, however, found several ways to tackle these obstacles and, over the course of time, I have saved what is quite possibly a small fortune. I would like to share my tips of frugal gaming with the rest of you, whether it’s because you’re like me and just can’t afford the rising costs of games, or because you’re young and rich and want more games than you’ll ever be able to play!

Agni’s Philosophy | Final Fantasy Realtime Tech Demo

July 6, 2012 | | 5 Comments

In my bumblings around the internet I found this, so have done a little research. This is a showcase of Square Enix’s ‘Lumionous Engine’ which was created for “next generation quality games”. The video shown is supposedly real time rather than pre-rendered which if true is very exciting, I also wonder if by ‘next generation’ Square means consoles or simply game quality over the next year or so?

I understand that this was shown at E3 but frankly I missed it, even when trawling through various E3 trailers, so this post is just incase any of you guys missed it too! Check out the video after the jump.
