Piracy general thread.

For you oldfags who use IRC there is
ixirc.com
I recommend visiting it using tor browser. It is an IRC packlist search engine for popular warez channels on rizon and abjects networks. Primary focus is on movies but you can find more popular games on there as well. The downloads are repackages of cracks made by warez groups like CODEX. I'm not knowledgeable enough to write a how to use IRC tutorial but someone who knows their shit please do.

English language fails to describe my reaction, so here it is in my native tongue:
SUKA PYDARAS NAXUI SUPISTAS KURVA NAXUI JOBANAS BLET PIZDIETS AAAAHH

With that out of the way, 2 questions:
1) Is there any chance DS will be possible to acquire on PC?
2) Since this reminded me of previous salt, is Bloodborne somehow possible to acquire on PC? From what I understand they only stream it to PS4, so does it mean it was is literally unobtainable for piracy?

There are PS3 emulators and a Demon Souls ISO floating around. I don't know how good the performance will be. As for Bloodborne, it is unlikely that we'll see a working PS4 emulator in the next decade.

I seriously doubt that. Back when the first Wii and Xbox 360 was coming out we already had Dreamcast and GBA emulators, so they're usually only about one generation behind.

How do our console brothers and sisters pirate exactly?
I've always wondered. Is it as easy to do as on PC.
I remember back on the ps2 you had to do something to your console.
Homebrew I've heard on nintendo straight up gives you the entire library to play with

I sometimes see, or at least at some point seen torrents for consoles on the site I use, however since I've never had a console I don't know how it works.

Btw, unrelated question, what are torrent programs like Vuze are actually supposed to do? Because I've only used them for piracy, but obviously they were made for some sort of legal activity, so what?

there;s been leaks indicating bb will be ported to pc, demon souls is very much playable on pc but the remaster is gonna take 25 years to be emulated (it took 7 years for a ps3 emulator to be in a decent state)

With all the drama around archive.org, it should be a good idea to grab this.
It weights less that the average modern game, and it's literal decades of gaming history.
If you want the NDS no-intro set, check out nyaa.si.

they come from a time when FTP was a thing, upload bandwidth wasn't cheap and Steam/Youtube/.. just weren't. Want people to download your game demo or your video? Better pay.

So some CompSci people sat down and looked at how to copy/distribute data better and described distributed networks and someone implemented these thoughts into "torrent" (there are others). IIRC at the same time we were at the height of the music piracy discussion (before Itunes, I think?) and torrent slotted into the role of "a faster Napster, also movies!".

Since the advent of cheaper bandwidth the need isn't quite there anymore and I have only used it for DVDs of Linux distributions (which ironically has always been unnecessary as universities provide mirrors and they just have bandwidth).

>Not sure how clean it is
IIRC they (igg-games.com) change game files in small releases and add their logo in backgrounds, menus, etc. from time to time. Or at least they did a few times.

Current gen and next gen Microsoft and Sony systems are almost PCs. If you don't see a PC port from them, it's due to typical capitalist industry nonsense as usual.

I have a Xbox 360 pirate, i think you also have to make plenty of changes to the console for that. My Xbox stopped reading discs so i started utilizing another programs like Horizon that installs the games into the USBs

You either solder in a modchip that skips the copy protection when loading burned disks or hack the OS to run unsigned code from memory card/hard disk/network share.
Sometimes I buy a console just to mod it and never play any games. Happened with switch (still waiting for that SMTV)

You can hack it to run at 60 FPS if your PC is beefy enough, I found it pretty playable.
No online, though, but the servers for original are closed anyway.

Depends on how lazy the devs get, switch has serious security on software side but left a gaping hole in hardware so you can hack one with a paperclip and a USB cable, and ps4 and xbone on the other hand still not broken.

They are part collectathon, part zelda-like explorathon with a thick and distinctive grimdark atmosphere with simple but enjoyable combat. In the age of ubishit there are few games like this.

I'm not a "Soulsborne" fan per se, but I played Dark Souls for the first time just over a year ago and it enthralled me. There are just so many exciting moments in that game - the hellkite dragon, getting chased by a Black Knight, walking into the Undead Parish and getting hit by a beam of light from out of nowhere, fighting gaping Gaping Dragon, crossing Blight Town and then finding out you can just waltz on over to Firelink Shrine, chilling in Dukes Archives etc. The environment designs are really inspired. Playing DS1 brought back those feelings that I used to get playing Ocarina of Time all those years ago.

All other 'Souls-like' games seem uninspired in comparison. I unfortunately never got to play BB, but I did play Sekiro for a little bit and that just seems like a shit game to me.
