  1. Let's talk a moment about a topic I feel gets little attention around these parts. It seems everything now in days on PC is turning to the subscription based model. Love it or hate it that's where companies see the money and from a purely business stand point it seems to make sense. Why charge people once for software they own once when you can keep charging them to just use it? Certainly it has its perks like being able to pick and choose what programs you want for a seemingly low price like in Adobe's CC and offsite storage. However, to me it seems like the cons far out weigh the positives and represent a trend in software I feel uneasy with. Its the realization that eventually when it comes to PCs Macs or whatever you won't own anything. You see with people like Adobe making money off of users having no choice but to continually pay into a system to just use their programs what's to prevent say Microsoft or Apple saying that you have to have an account with them and a subscription continually paid into to just have an OS? You may say they can't get away with something like that but hell look at Office 365 now something as simple as using powerpoint and word is now going subscription based (granted with that at least they still let you access and edit files but we'll get into that in a minute). Then we get into the worst of it. Denial of access to files if you stop your subscription. The worst perpetrator here being Adobe CC. Lets say you cancel your subscription to Adobe CC. You have 30 days to save all of your files and projects into a different file format or else you lose access to them because the program will lock you out of even getting to your files. Now you could get into some legal issues how that denys you to access potentially creative work on your end and stuff you possibly have trademarked but frankly I don't have the lawyer expertise to get into that (not to mention they probably have a clause in their i agree section no one reads saying they have the right to screw you). It does not deny that it is pure and simple strong arm tactics to essentially force you to keep paying into something potentially JUST to access your stuff that you made. Think of it like this. You are an artist but need the canvas, paint, and supplies to do it. Instead of having the option to buy it from me and be able to use it for years on end you HAVE to rent it from me for $20 a month and if you stop paying me then I take away all the paintings and projects you made until you decide to keep paying me. Now don't get me wrong there are some programs that I can understand having a subscription based model because that's the only way to sustain them. Things like tunnelbear, server clients, and numerous other services which need money to simply maintain the service and resources they're providing to you as a service. Frankly, I don't know if there would be any other way or model to sustain things like this. Now I get when you buy software you are buying a license to use it (for however many people thats one thing) and you don't technically own the rights to it but when companies decide that they want to deny basic functionality and strong arm me into paying into a perpetual system then that's when I put the can on it. Personally, I'd rather work hard, save money, and pay the steep price in the begging for good software and be able to use it indefinitely then have to pay $50 a month ($600 a year) for stuff that can effectively be pulled from me at anytime.
  2. Hello all, I recently got into a bit of a dilemma with a person who I thought was a friend. As the title says, this is going to be a little long, so brace yourselves. For the better part of a year, I've been working with some wonderful people, and although our job doesn't pay a livable wage, we still had a pretty good time. I managed to make a few friends, including one young woman person whom I considered a best friend (since I don't have many close friends). The young woman whom I became close friends with has two children, and oftentimes, she needs additional money to take care of them. The father of her children is not very active in her children's lives—and in many cases, is antagonistic towards her. From what I'm led to believe, they've been in physical altercations, for example. Naturally, I wanted to help her out, so I gave her money from time to time, and didn't worry about her paying it back. The exception to this rule would be two times when she asked me for over $100. My personal rule is that if anyone asks me for $100+, I make them sign a contract stating that they will pay me back within a certain time or face the possibility of legal action. The first time, she paid me back no problem. The second time ... Over the last couple months, I find out that my friend was pregnant again. The father is the same guy who's not reliable and antagonistic towards her. She tells me that she needs money for the abortion, which I gave to her (though not without having her sign a contract first). Shortly after that, she loses her job, so naturally, I tell her not to worry about paying me back since I know she wouldn't be able to afford to. Instead, I ask her to be my wingwoman, since I have a hard time meeting and connecting with women, so having her introduce me to women and accompany me when I'm ready to meet women in social settings would help. However, I find out through one of my other friends that she's pregnant again by the same man. At first, I just think she made a bad decision. But there's more: from what I'm led to believe, she never terminated her pregnancy. She used the money I gave her for something else. When I found this out, I was overcome with rage and grief stemming from dishonesty and betrayal. Here's the thing though, the contract states that she had to use that money for its intended purpose, and if she doesn't, I can take legal action. But should I? On one hand, I want that money back, but on the other, I just want to wash my hands of the whole thing and refrain from speaking to her again. Thanks for reading this long, drama-filled post.
  3. Ok,so you know how in chapter 16 of conquest you have to interrogate soldiers right? Is there anyway to prevent a lot of money from being stolen this chapter? Also, Is ashura always the soldier you talk to? Because he is for me most of the playthroughs I've done. Any help at all will be appreciated!
  4. Ok here's the issue... I would like to know to the Price of Awakening FE, reason because, I saved up about a 113 AUS Dollars, and I would like to know the Cheapest price for this game, In AUS its 47.10$, I would like to know a cheaper price, also because I don't have a 3DS. In AUS its 108.00$ for a 3DS (preowned}. Thanks.
  5. Whether its a collector's edition, used, special edition or limited release. What game have you spent the most money on? For me it would have to be my newly acquired physical copy of Fire Emblem Path of Radiance with the disc and manual included I paid about $90 for a complete used (but pristine) copy of the game.
  6. Hello, I have recently started a project with FEXP. I am making most of the resources, but looking for people who might be able to assist me with the technical side of things. I am being funded for this project, and am looking to pay people who can work on a 'professional level.' GOAL To complete a game with 8 to 12 chapters/levels, a cast of 5 to 9 characters, and 1-2 modified 'features.' I have until August 31st 2013 to complete this project. I will be posting updates once the website is completed, and releasing the game free-to-play. PAYMENT METHOD This can be elaborated in PMs, as payment methods for each individual may vary (direct transfer, PayPal, etc.). REQUIRED EXPERIENCE - Website design with HTML/Java or - Scripting with Ruby/FEXP or - A portfolio of digital artwork (backdrops, and menu screens are a must.). ___ If you have any questions, feel free to PM me for more details.
