@Sir_Boops i mean, they have to know they are shooting themselves into a leg, right?
@bugbear The worst part is they don't
@Sir_Boops i mean i am all against not rewarding artists... but this whole mess is just silly. like i "only" need netflix and amazon prime to cover my bases... well, now i'd have to get disney+ for that occasional disney itch... and let's be honest that's just because hulu isn't in my country so there isn't another player fighting for distribution rights...
@Sir_Boops Why pirate anything at all? If they don't make it easy for me to get a movie or a game, I'll just go back to the classics and stay there.
I'm already doing this with games. Why should I play some new super AAA giga-game that costs 60 for the 'basic loser lmao edition' on some random platform that leaks data left and right when I can just... not.
Maybe once all these entertainment companies die and burn we'll get more great movies instead of hollywood shit.
