fuck drm ... ESPECIALLY FUCKING DENUVO!!!
Being deliberately similar to the taboo word "fuck", French Connection's use of "fcuk" caused widespread controversy. In addition, there was heavy criticism that French Connection and other advertisers are "free to put up offensive posters, gain huge impact from them, and then - when they are ordered down (often after the campaign has run its course) - to notch up even more publicity". Following a number of complaints about advertising campaigns using the initialism, the UK's Advertising Standards Authority requested that the company submit all poster campaigns for approval before running them.In the United States, the American Family Association urged a boycott of fcuk products.
Gog did it all these ways and still does. More way to reach people is nice and FCK DRM is surely eyecatching.
Like running a DRM free storefront and linking to other storefronts that are DRM free? And linking to non-profits?
Steam isn't a DRM platform. It's a platform which requires publishers to opt-in to DRM if they want it. (Also, maybe relevant to this point, I don't think any Valve single-player game uses DRM)
I'm out of the loop, it seems. What happened?
The Cyberpunk Twitter made an out of order comment. https://www.resetera.com/threads/cyberpunk-2077-twitter-account-makes-transphobic-joke-read-op.63305/
GOG profitting from it or not, buying games with no DRM benefits the customer in the first place. DRM is a protection for publishers, it never had ANY real benefit for people who just bought the game (but several downsides).
CJProject red can't stop their twitter folks from sticking their leg into their tweethole, make the anti-trans joke "did you just assume my gender"?, two locked threads, one thread at 10 pages and counting, at least 20 bans, more than 10 perma-bans.
That is bad, true. Itch.io is goddamn awesome, and better than GOG regarding "freedom" as there's no gatekeeping and the devs can set their own cut. Hell, Itch.io should be shown first.I have no issues with the tone, DRM is disrespecting customers.
There are already many, many neutral sources on this, can't be wrong to have something which appeals to whomever this is for.
Something I do have issues with:
Why is only GOG listed in the gaming section? Did they deliberately not include itch? That's pretty uncool.
Well, time to make use of the e-amil adress, [email protected], and inform them kindly about itch.io.
