    Are these games pirated?

    1. onit says:

      that’s rather accusatory and presumptuous.would be better if you encouraged them or hoped that they used non-pirated games

      latency probems and expensive data would make this very expensive. only those who have pure broadband and are uncapped would enjoy the experience.

    it doesn’t really matter if the games are pirate copies. if the game publishers actually cared we’d have official support for their products in our country. they don’t even know we exist, which from a logical point of view is both good and bad. i love the fact that Gamers are coming together especially PC gamers, maybe the culture will actually grow. i’m making it a point to go to a tornament, hope to meet PES 2011 players+L4D2+SF4
