Turn based games will never be done. Some people just don't like real time strategy games.

I think these people don't understand that the Bill of Rights doesn't cover corporate actions. They think Burger King can't just throw a clause in the contract giving BK the final say on what goes up on those signs. If the sign said something vulgar or racist it would be taken down right away, but BK don't want to be seen as "taking sides" (as if there are two legitimate sides to be taken). The global warming denier spin machine is weakened but it's still a powerful force.

News Comments > German Violent Game Ban?
13. Re: German Violent Game Ban? Jun 6, 2009, 18:34 dubfanatic
 
OOC, does anyone know why Germany is like this? They're like the opposite of the US: okay with sex, nudity, prostitution, but against violence.

The culture of the USA was strongly influenced by the Puritans, who were so crazy even the Dutch kicked them out. This is where American prudishness comes from. I don't have a full grasp of German history, but I'd suspect their aversion from violence comes from being the main aggressor in two world wars and losing both times.

Beautiful area. Seattle rocks!

Bellevue is the Orange County of Seattle. The only difference is the palm trees are a lot smaller.

You don't know this. You are only speculating. And have since been proven wrong by Caveman.

Caveman didn't "prove me wrong". I'm not wrong until they actually do it, which I admit is likely. I shouldn't have used the word "fact", "indication" would have been a better word. But, my earlier point still stands. This game has been out for several months and there are still big problems with matchmaking. This announcement was poorly timed.

Then you didn't read clearly, and Caveman as already proved you wrong on this too.

Caveman didn't even address this point. Who isn't reading clearly now? I'd be impressed with your idiocy but you've already demonstrated it to me.

Yeah, I've been seeing a lot of people trashing the forum, or more specifically, the people on this forum lately. That's kind of weird. I mean, if you so clearly dislike the forum and the people here, why would you continue to participate in it?

Because they are just trolls, and I was foolish to even reply to them in the first place. I'm going to make sure it never happens again.

First...dubfanatic, try and keep up. Caveman posted about the IGN videos early in the thread. He didn't link to it, but any retard can type www.ign.com...but you've proved that wrong...good on ya.

Generally it's common courtesy to cite any articles or videos being discussed. I shouldn't have to wade through that piece of shit site just because this jackass was too lazy to Ctrl-C Ctrl-V. I'm on some forums where you can get banned for doing that sort of thing repeatedly.

Even then, what's wrong with someone not liking a game based on its demo?

LOL, yeah, isn't that the point of a demo? Some fanboys will find any excuse...

Like I said, classic Blues in this thread. I fucking love it!

You and Caveman both seem to share disdain for this forum. You can both do us all a favor and leave if you really don't like it.

God damn this forum is fucking stupid. Directly from the article.

Oh yeah I'm so stupid for not being able to find an article that wasn't linked here, nor in the RPS article which is now basically inaccessible from all the people going there.

Get over yourself.

Perhaps by reading the posts by at least two separate people saying something like "LOL SO GLAD I NEVER BOUGHT THE ORIGINAL" and "LOL YEAH I TRIED THE DEMO AND GOT BORED SO GLAD I NEVER BOUGHT IT LOL".

You take a sample of two people and extrapolate it over the whole population. You should be a sociologist.

Wrong, read the IGN article, all the improvements to matchmaking in L4D2 are going to Left 4 Dead 1. They might even port all the campaigns and characters over to L4D2 so it's basically an expansion.

What IGN article? I don't see any IGN article. How about you get off your lazy duff and link the article here, if it's not a figment of your delusional mind.

"Lrn2internet" HAHAHA SO FUNNY.

....and the people who've never even played L4D come out in full force to hate on the sequel! Even though they never had any reason to care in the first place since they've never played the original! Awesome.

You're missing the point. Our problem isn't with the sequel necessarily, it's with the fact that they are tacitly abandoning the first game with all its problems (e.g. matchmaking). Also I haven't seen any negative posts here that indicate the poster has not at least played the L4D demo, if not the full game.

The least they could have done was fix the matchmaking before announcing this. 7+ months on and it still tries to put you on full or broken servers, there's still no pre-made team matching, some lobbies and servers never fill, and you can't open friends games up to the public if someone has to leave. This is an amateur move from a company I least expected to pull such a move.

This would be worth it if the economic aspect was deep enough, but somehow I suspect this is just a glorified friends list.

They did fix it, it was a server-side fix.

I'm not much of an RTS player so I wanted a demo to experience the pace of the game. Now I'm just not interested in even trying a demo...

Oh and good job totally derailing the thread, idiots.

Here is the actual quote from the article that I'm sure nobody here or at LinuxToday bothered to read:

Veghte said, “If you’re just starting your testing of Vista, with the [Windows 7] Release Candidate and the quality of that offering, I would switch over and do your testing on the [Windows 7] Release Candidate, and use that going forward.”

This quote was aimed at enterprise IT managers, testing out operating systems in their company. Of course it makes sense to start testing Win7 now in an enterprise environment instead of using Vista which will just be obsolete soon. But of course sense doesn't stop Linux zealots from saying OMG M$ HATES THEIR OWN PRODUCT ROFL and feeling a sense of smug superiority. I'm no Microsoft apologist but I think Linux zealots are even dumber than Mac zealots.
