Wanna know what I thought all day at work? Contemplating to delete my profile.

I've said this millions of times I wouldn't do this if people didn't enjoy it and I also do it so the board has something to discuss. I hate beggers. I also hate dubrolling.

I've also tried being regularly social on the board on the days I dont have news. Believe me I listen to everything you guys say.

Well, some people like me sure do enjoy how you take the time to give us news. It annoys me that some anons can't scroll for two seconds and have to proxy you.

That's the one that deals with Religion, right?

9/10 times I run Ethiopia, which provides Stele as a monument and provides +2 faith every turn, and can get you a Parthenon real quick, which is the first step into Religion. The benefits are not tied to a religion, so you can select from a moderately large list of benefits. The benefits come in 3 waves. 1 from the Parthenon (Basic "what god do you follow" thing. 2 from your first Great Prophet (I think Religion wide and City wide benefits). 2 more from second Great Prophet that are basically enhancers.
User avatar #578076 - reretzu (07/17/2013) [-]
Alright, thank you, I'll keep that in mind. I probably won't play Ethiopia that much since I enjoy playing some other specific countries for more roleplaying purposes but I'll try them when I want to win.

User avatar #568077 - reretzu (07/13/2013) [-]
Yes, it was necessary to regulate used disc games, without a check it would be impossible to determine what was being done to the disc, so you could've sold the game back to gamestop, but since it was installed on your console it would still be there, unless you checked in and the system saw that this game had been sold to gamestop, whereby it would remove the game from your hard drive.

How is it going to give us sales like steam? Steam is an open market you can buy pc games from other places Like gog gmg gamersgate, orgin. So of course they want to compete by ahving good sales. The only place to buy xbox games will be from the market place (which is where you are implying it will be on sale) so why would they put them for cheaper prices when there is no comp.
User avatar #568070 - reretzu (07/13/2013) [-]
To compete with steam, psn and the like, it's not just about selling the games on your system, it's also about using these sales as a method to sell your system better, and considering they could earn a hell of a lot more with the DRM, this could make them have sales to make their system more attractive, which would make more people buy the system, and then because all of the online games are cheap, people would buy a lot more games, which would mean more profits.

I'm not saying this would happen, but it was what they were going for, not to steal money but to make gaming better for everyone, acting like it's a dickmove is stupid because dickmoves are intentional, Microsoft wasn't trying to fuck us over.

This analogy falls fat on it's face.

First of all, Microsoft didn't try to fuck things up, they genuinely wanted to make a steam like market on consoles, which could have worked too.
Second of all, everything was retracted before the consoles were released, there was actually no damage done at all.
