The next livestream will be this Friday, May 29th at 7pm est! We will doodle! We will chat! We will play games!
After playing a lot of Borderlands on Monday, I’m leaning towards more Borderlands for Friday’s stream. Not 100% sure yet, but that’s likely the game!
See you then!
END LIVESTREAM UPDATE!
I initially wanted to play some FF7 on Monday. My only copy of the game is somewhere lost in my apartment, so I figured I’d try to do the right thing and buy it again on Steam.
It was eleven bucks…
…which I suppose isn’t a huge deal; it’s not like old movie classics are cheaper to buy than their new counterparts. I more or less happily paid the price for a quality game.
A quick download later and I was ready to go! Except for one thing:
you have to create a Square account and log in to play.
What? This is a twenty year old PSX game, why on earth should I need to create an online account and log in? Not that I am condoning piracy, but things like this are exactly why piracy is often seen as a quality alternative. What if a player downloaded the game before heading on a trip where he didn’t have internet?
What if… gasp… someone didn’t want to have a Square account?
What benefit does Square get by making people do this? They get our email addresses, sure, but now I am significantly less likely to buy one of their games on steam again.
Also, why do the adults of FF7 think it’s ok to let a four year old run a dingy bar? WHAT’S WRONG WITH YOU, SQUARE?
