Im a broke student with no money and tonnes of debt. I have been looking for a free TV, but havent had any luck. I have checked with all of my friends who steal **** on a regular basis, but they dont have one. hmmmm, well I guess I MIGHT have to buy one.
**edit: oops, no, I found one in some old ladies house. Im all set now.
This is ****ing foolish thread. If something costs money and you take it for free, you are stealing. That is ****ing fact.
This is why I try to support F/OSS whenever possible. Those are people who agree with all of us who think software ought to be free, or at least a hell of a lot cheaper. The difference is that they put their money where their mouth is and contribute to the solution, not the problem (And you ARE a part of the problem, especially as it is perceived by the publishers of non-free software).
The thing is, you can argue all you want, you really are a free-loader with a feeling of self-entitlement.
So I'm thinking of building a new i7
I have some spare money from my school refund. It's been a lifelong dream for me to go to Japan
I may actually break down and buy a legal copy though seeing as this is probably the only non free game I'll play in a year or two, and built a whole system basically just to play it
wait for it ...
If I had an income and wasn't a poor student, that's hugely in debt I might consider buying it.
smell that HORSE****! P-EWWWWWWWWW.
You DID consider buying it, you were THIS close to buying and money was definitely not the deciding factor. Which tells me you either DO have the disposable income, or you are extremely stupid and have no idea how to live within your means.
when someone offers me something for free, I don't see I can afford to turn it down and pay for it out of some idealistic value system that I have to pay to support a giant game company.
Entertainment is not a right, it is a privilege. Not everyone can afford the latest and greatest, or even the old ****. There are alternatives, there are many cheap/free independent games. Or, Take Mercen_505 for example. He/she understands value (didn't they teach you that in Business 101) and has patience to wait for the inevitable price drop.
The time I'm going to waste playing it is going to be more than enough loss to me already.
I guess the software company should reimburse YOU then?
