Nothing worth even the use of bandwidth.
Piracy is a service problem, not a product problem. The service is fine, the products are so awful that I wouldn't want them through any service.
I've taken to collecting cartoons and shows from my youth. I guess it's the nostalgia factor, they're not terribly entertaining to watch as an adult. Most of them never got a DVD release, so fans have painstakingly preserved them for us.
Nice try, fed!
How to fuck up the feds.
Step 1: Locate a fed.
Step 2: Let it infiltrate your group.
Step 3: Invite it to a movie night with everyone pirating something.
Step 4: Switch it's idea with Cutie or some other groomer shit.
Step 5: When its movie starts up, have a second team of friends in tac-gear, guns ready and charge in, and your group pull out guns with a "FREEZE! THIS IS A BUST!" "Child pornography, huh? You're going away for a long time. Better practice the soap-dropping routine, freak."
Step 6: Watch it freak out and offer proof of ID. Disregard it and say something like 'impersonating a police officer, eh? You're gonna get it now!'
Step 7: Stage a dramatic capture, Handcuff, blindfold, drive it somewhere.
Step 8: Stop randomly. "Ha, we were just fucking with you." let it walk. "We're watching you, lowlife."
Step 9 (Baka). Leave.
I'm not falling for this again
The feds are just looking for good stuff to watch.
I got the new puss in boots and it was decent and even had some positive messaging.
Then the second season of Primal which wasnt as good as the first but still better than anything else for a long time.
My entertainment viewing mostly is youtube with with people building stuff.
Edit: also remembered the "Pantheon" series ended up being a pleasant surprise. The animation is nothing special but the story is good.
Second puss in boots. I saw it in the theater, great movie.
All the things. I recently printed out a car on my 3D printer too.
You wouldn't download a car.
I recently got the Star Wars 4k theatrical editions fan remasters. They are called 4k77 and 4k83. Great quality, and no stupid special edition changes. Definitive way to watch Star Wars.
How do these compare to Harmy's despecialized editions?
I downloaded those a while ago and have been considering buying the Blu-ray versions with menus that some people are selling on EBay to get a more professional/official release style copy.
It's debatable. It's all one source so they have a more consistent look than the despecialized. The resolution is higher, but due to most of the despecialized being taken from a higher quality source they still sometimes look better.
For Star Wars, it's debatable.
Empire strikes back isn't out yet, so despecialized is your only option.
For Return of the Jedi, the reel used for 4k83 is extremely clean, I think it looks better than the despecialized.
This comparison may help you decide. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=EKYiISAYCm0
These are the best way to watch them but the colour grading isn't great for 4k83, each version fixes some things and ruins something else. I also saw some betas of 4k80 and they're really rough. Doesn't look like the latter 2 movies will get a worthy 4k release unless new film stock is found or Disney miraculously releases the original versions themselves.
I didn't think the Special Editions did any harm to the originals. DVD/Blu-ray though? Fuck them.
Onlyfans and ebooks. Downloaded all the books by David Deida this month, his writings surprisingly resonate with me a lot
stop cooming bro, its literally rotting your brain
I currently average 1 fap every 2-4 weeks, I think I'm doing good. But I agree with ya
Better than rotting your prostate.
you sound vaccinated
Stealing OnlyFans content is probably the most based way to get off.
We got a nark! Everyone hide your stuff! /s
FF7R (pre Steam release) and Stranger of Paradise. I found the former to be bad enough that I had no interest whatsoever in actually getting the Steam release, and the latter still isn't on Steam.
FF7R is quite insultingly bad isn't it. It's baffling to me that most people seem to like it.
It has every form of "time filler" I've come to hate in modern gaming, combat is NOT good, the environment is really goddamn small, and the twist makes no sense.
Modding Tifa is the only major positive. (Actually portraying the characters with their accurate original personalities shouldn't have to be a positive, but here we are)
God they turn her into some soapboxing thot or something?
Are you not familiar with basically everything that used FF7 characters after 7 itself? Kingdom Hearts? Dissidia? Their personalities were BUTCHERED in all of that, and now they're actually back to something that actually feels like what they were originally. Except maybe Sephiroth, but I never finished 7R.
Kingdom Hearts was the Advent Children versions. Or at least that's the excuse.
That's because it follows the original plot until the last like 10 minutes, and while the whole fake sequel thing is a possibility, it would also be like Nomura for that whole thing to be a bait and switch and the rest of the entries to follow the original plot, hence why people don't hate the game just because of the last 5% of it
We're in such a content trough right now that I'm paying for anything that's good as a point of principle. If entertaining entertainment doesn't at least turn a profit, we're screwed for decades or longer.
Of course, my standing prohibition on giving money to woke corporations remains, so I don't care if Disney publishes a good movie or EA puts out a good game by accident.
I have sailed the high seas for near on a decade now.
I do have TV series that I watch, but I haven't watched OTA or cable programming in more than five years. Over the last 3 years, I've been to a movie theater three times. GB: Afterlife, Dune 2021, and TG: Maverick.
Yes, I have, and I will leave it at that.
8.1 TB media library FTW. :)
Some of us have been here since Napster. Piracy over dial up was a hell of a ride.
How do you do, fellow pirates?
I have never pirated anything ever.
Piracy is theft.
You wouldn't steal a car, would you????????????????
The Pale Blue Eye
Review sites were trashing it so I figured it would be good, and it was.
Anime every week
Guitar Pro 7, finally upgrading my pirated GP5
For one, I'm not lying when I say my client is used for Linux distro downloading.
I pirate manga all the time.
I pirate the occasional movie.
Videogames rarely since it's a private site and ratios and yadda yadda yadda. Also my local library is fairly current with games so I usually just check games out from there.
I'm downloading season 10 of The Curse of Oak Island right now. Recommend starting from the beginning and not reading anything about the show (but do read about the Island itself).
Oh, and Severance is actually quite good. There is some diversity BS in it which harms the coherence of the plot but the show is otherwise so good that it's still definitely worth a watch.
Seems to me like the man finally cracked the code on video game piracy. Almost nothing new is showing up on torrents anymore.
I would but there's just nothing worth watching
The only thing I pay for are box set collections of One Piece.
And the hardbacks of Berserk till I saw the last two chapters. Fk that.
I do not regret purchasing the entirety of Miura's work.
I have some "streaming" sites I use so honestly haven't really been motivated to pirate anything, unless that counts as pirating
How else will I watch cats does countdown?
Anime old and new.
