They do have a publisher for SS3, but its PR team is one royal ass****ery.

Well in any case, i think it's about time CT makes public statement, why they are quite for so long. Seriously. You don't just go stop posting news for years. They really need to post anything, even if it's just a simple 'hello'.

I'm pretty sure GameCock (or whatever their name is now) is their overall publisher. Being a small developing company I doubt CT would have enough money to pay two publishers.

Also, have you ever considered that members of CroTeam may have their own lives to deal with as well?
I mean a fair few of the forum members here disappear from time to time to deal with personal problems.

It takes just a few minutes to make a hello post here from the moment you press the power button on your PC, for that to be hard/impossible real life would need to be extremely busy, in fact so busy that you get ill from lack of sleep and overworking before long.

I think Croteam members have their own reasons each; maybe some don't care, others are waiting for the right moment (when GC finally release some goodies), etc.

Noone is that bussy that he wouldn't find 10 seconds to write "ss3 is progressing ok" and press "post reply".

Exactly. Some people exaggerate how busy they are and use it as an excuse to not visit, instead of just admitting they got tired of this place.

either that, or the NDA thing. NDA doesn't prevent you from saying "hello, we are doing ok" or some like that.

Hello...
Im still alive even though I have a Staph infection...

Im kicking and torturing its a$$ like it did me for many years...
Its true what they say "Pay backs a Bit**"...

God and I say HI, from above... ...

Seriously, I hope they make games without SuckuRom, Starforce...
They are just a way for Sony and others to make a few xtra bucks off the honest people... Then their software they install doesnt work because you have other programs install that are illegal in "their" country but not in ours...
They scan your computer for other progy's and then tell you to uninstall the progy so their program will run... They dictate what you can have installed and such...

Though I bought a computer for ME/MYSELF and NOT for Sony...
I NEVER buy anything from Sony anyway...

We can thank Sony for one thing; their repulsive software has had the effect of the music industry rapidly losing interest in DRM. So in a way their own creation backfired. Now let's hope the same will happen to the gaming industry some day.

I've been told Steamgames come without DRM, so that's a plus for such an annoying software :p I'm not that social and in need of ads mind you. I also want to choose where I would like to install my games, or perhaps i've missed the box where I input the installation location? Point me in the right direction then eh? :p

I'd be amazed if it actually did have a profile for a game that doesn't exist yet

It's not unusual for nvidia to put game profiles in beta drivers before the game release. As they often have early access to games to test compatibility and optimize drivers.

How early are we talking about here? Serious Engine 3.0 has likely not reached its first stable build yet, let alone an early build of the game in its entirety. Early access is fine and dandy, but if it is too early, nVidia will be testing an unfinished product, which means the final build will not be in sync with nVidia's optimizations by a long shot.

Croteam. Please do not put DRM in your next game. Why? Here is a few reasons.

1.) DRM encourages piracy.
2.) DRM makes installing and playing games a hassle for legitimate customers.
3.) DRM is ruining the overall experience of PC Gaming in general.

Yes, but it's never too early to let them know that DRM is killing the PC Gaming industry.

I think he really just wants DRM gone, saw the first couple words of your post and quoted it.
