Is the piratebay version something that's allowed? I don't know about anyone else here, but I wouldn't help someone who has pirated this game.

If you want to play an endless game, buy it! Don't complain about it not working when you pirate it. Especially not here either.

Seriously, the video games industry is actually doing the right thing and making games accessible and cheap. And yet you download this game off the Pirate Bay instead of forking over $10 or whatever it costs for an awesome game that'll work and costs less than a movie in a cinema.

Also, you're not stealing money from a big box retailer or company. You're essentially stealing from your local corner shop that really needs that money to stay in business because they can't afford "inventory shrinkage."

Sorry to go on for a rant but people who pirate FTL disgust me, especially when the game is available on everything and is pretty cheap on its own.

When I hear people pirating FTL It saddens me... pirating from an indie group/ company/ dev is sickening...
It's just 10 dollars... 4 dollars on sales which are often...

I second what Style says.

I respect the people that are pirates in FTL. (they are cool, got cool paint jobs, and there persistence and courage is admirable.
I don't respect the people that pirated FTL.

If you enjoy the game that 10 dollars isn't a waste.

You know the devs out there are also have there job, they spend there hard earned money on the bills, food, shelter, warmth, and there family and also put some of that money back to the community.

But then suddenly someone takes there product and doesn't give them a single cent.

Imagine how you would feel if you showed up to work, did your duty, then came to get paid and instead your boss went "nah, I'm not paying for your labor, I do not want to waste my money on you"

If you are so poor that 10 dollars will make you go bank rupt then spend less time pirating and go get a better job or work harder.

Cool story bro. Now would you kindly lean over this way towards the dry riverbed? I'm going to need you to cry into it for me.

Seriously dude, we all laugh when people pirate games from large companies (we all want to be like Robin Hood), but we get angry and resentful towards those who steal from local stores/small businesses (like the common thief).

He probably works nights at Freddy Fazbears Pizzeria. I heard the pay really sucks at that place.

For the time period Freddy Fazbears Pizzaria the pay was actually quite above minimal wage for the time.

spending 6 hours a day for 5 weeks for their year is = 208 USD in 2014 time.

It isn't that bad. That'll be enough to buy nearly 120 cheese burgers and FTL if the only thing you pay for is food and the game and I think 120 cheese burgers (rounded up) is a bit to much for 7 days.

2 more nights and it could be right about 260-ish USD. (working in the weekends) per week.

Sorry to go lore/ technical freak on ya. :roll:


Anyway, I think we shouldn't throw insults at the lad. If we go act aggressive to him then what makes us better then a pirate if we are acting like a bunch of thugs?
