They have the right to free speech but Valve aren't obligated to provide a microphone. That's not censorship, that's Valve exercising their freedom.

At a cursory glance, it looks like controversy bait; marketing through outrage. Maybe there is more to it, playing from the bad guy's perspective might be interesting if it's not just Postal style immaturity.

There's the big problem, politicians aren't going to vote to take money out of politics. Why would their masters ever allow them to? Especially with a 2 party system where, as you say, both parties are heavily sponsored and both candidates can be purchased - this is what leads to a financial oligarchy.

Something like 90% of elections are determined by the side that spends more money.

Around 90% of elections (U.S. congressional seats, 2012) are won by the side that spends more money. That doesn't mean that the money determined the election. If one candidate seems more likely to win, they will attract donations because no one wants to buy someone who isn't going to be in power.

Money has way too much influence in politics, don't get me wrong, but I think this statistic gets misrepresented.

That was marketing, not game design (assuming you mean the pre-release footage?). That could be another list, Watch Dogs can join it there.

Is it PG13?

I don't know but at least one recent film was neutered to get more people into the cinema, I think it was the Robocop remake.

Can you use a trainer to make you invulnerable until you get to land? I presume people still make those.

Thanks guys. I didn't know it was the same people as did TDU, that explains a lot - those games were both rather underwhelming aside from satisfying an exploration bug.

I'm probably going to get a Geforce 970 for Christmas which means a free copy of this or Assassin's Creed: Unity (the other option, Far Cry 4, I already own).

This doesn't sound like much of a choice now that these are out. I don't even like the good Ass Creed games so it is encouraging that you compare this to TDU as I quite liked those games.

Tom Hardy has been excellent every time I've seen him.

As long as it's not PG-13...

It's not a device, it's a standard that allows different programs to use different devices (dongle, fingerprint reader, etc). As far as I know, there is basically no way at present for a web site to enable sign-in via finger-print as there's a hundred different systems on a hundred different OSes - and a remote web page can't access that stuff any way.

I'd be nervous about signing in to Facebook with my fingerprint. Even if they don't actually receive any biometric data (I think, I'm not sure!) that is a little creepy.

I associate balaclavas with nefarious activities so much, I'd do a double-take if I ever actually saw someone wearing one outside. I blame the IRA, and our cool temperate climate.

There's a really great game concept here and Day Z doesn't look like it is going to deliver. Maybe this will be it. The Forest is the survival game that looks most promising but it's single player only so not the same.

A Far Cry 4 patch, version 1.5, is downloading via Uplay. 1.35GB. No changelog that I can find but apparently it has performance improvements.

Edit - Changelog:

It was a speech at a conference, not a court ruling. I don't know anything about him and maybe he has made unconstitutional rulings but he is entitled to his opinion, no?

I don't know what, if any, restrictions there are on judges speaking publicly. It would be difficult for a judge to stay in their position if they were too critical of the law; they could become a political pawn.

sigh... it's nice to see that i'm not the one being picked on in this particular thread for enjoying a videogame. (on a videogame forum, whodathunk?!)

just because bullying happens often on this board, still know that it's mocked by the quiet masses who read but don't post. you prove to everyone that you're petty when you can't engage on the issue, and instead revert to personal shit.

calling people shills, PR-monkeys, or just insinuating that they're disingenuous because they enjoy something instead of panning it, just makes you look all more the fool.

just sayin. continue to prove me right. or surprize everyone by growing a conscience.

Like when you told me to kill myself because I compared the effect of people demanding a PC game be on Steam to the fees that developers have to pay MS and Sony for console versions?

I don't disagree with this post and I find the arrogance of shill accusations to be rather irksome (do they really find it hard to believe that someone might actually honestly disagree with them?!) but you should really ask yourself if you are ever part of the problem. I wasn't traumatised and I know you weren't making death threats but if that's not bullying, it is at least dragging a conversation down there.

Welcome back, Skyrim!
3+ years after it's release. My question is, who are all these people who haven't bought it until now?

Console gamers who re-buy it when they happen to get a decent PC, to play with mods? That's just a theory.

The engine feels clunky. The same awkward moving issues, particularly when trying to jump around scenery, have existed since Oblivion if not earlier. Separate indoor and outdoor areas is quite dated and unmodded it has poor detail at distance. It's far from a write-off, but I'd like to see a lot more progress for The Elder Scrolls 6 - but presumably it will be next-gen so non-visual stuff won't be a priority.

It's funny but Christianity had nothing to do with it. Somebody somewhere is going to take this the wrong way and we'll see "Gamers Are Against Christ" headlines.
