It's gamers like you, LordTrilobite, that add a whole new dimension to the fun of gaming. You are awesome, man.
I can dig the bit about illegal downloads. It's a crying shame some people think they're entitled. As an artist and software developer I can really respect the need for honesty and paying for the product. I currently live in the Philippines, and illegal games and pirated software is all too common here. Tempting, yes, but I also believe in karma!
