Warez is not stealing. If you steal something, you take it away and make it inaccessible for the rightful owner. If you warez something, it remains unchanged and accessible for the owner, and gives you the benefit of using it too.

"Intellectual property" laws are getting to be complete bullshit, anyway. It's actually gotten to where when you purchase something you don't actually own it, but you've purchased temporary permission to use it.

Oh no problem.

The tool he used was this website voice engine called SitePal.

he also used a freeware wav editing program but he doesn't have the link at the moment.

Warez usually has stuff missing from it. At some point I had Soldier of Fortune 2, but all the sounds were sampled down to 11 KHz, the music was missing, and the speech was missing as well. I ended up buying it. Same thing happened with Max Payne, and several other things my brother insisted on warezing. And in most of these games, there are no subtitle features so you can't tell what people are saying.

Bottom line: I DO NOT WAREZ.

So warez encouraged you to buy these things. Think of it as an extended demo :)

Getting warez is hard work. There's link circles, rapid fire pop-up ads, automatic redirecting, vicious javascript, nonexistant files and huge files when they do exist. If you can get past all of that with a dial up connection, then you've pretty much earned your overhyped unoriginal corporate excretion.
