The last time I played this game, I had my mission sabotaged by the children I was paired with because I wouldn't give them my loot.

I remember there were some missions in the game (original, before expansions) that were impossible without a human party because the henchmen were woefully underpowered for the mission. Problem is, most people got through those parts before I did, so there were very few groups to join. Effectively you were stuck at these missions if you didn't have any trusted people to play with. Did they ever improve the henchmen or matchmaking?

3. Re: Joystiq - Is game censorship... Apr 11, 2009, 15:17 dubfanatic
 
Yeah that article is junk. Did it not occur to the author that German developers are more aware of the censors than US developers, leading to the German games being designed to avoid the censors?

Good point about The Witcher. Germany hates violence in media as much as Americans hate sex in media (if not more). Maybe the whole war thing had something to do with it...

Isn't there already a game called Blood Bowl? Or is this a remake?

Oh, it's a new adaptation of the Games Workshop franchise, duh...

What's with all the links to Slashdot, when the Slashdot "articles" are just links to blog posts... which invariably come from somewhere else? (since we all know bloggers can't come up with original content)

I had a Voodoo 3 3500, the one with the TV tuner. That was probably the second worst video card I've ever owned (behind the Voodoo Rush, my first 3D card). I had to underclock the card to get it to work properly, and the TV tuner barely worked.

The "First commenters" article was just as nerdy as the people who make those damn posts.

I would probably play a Redneck Rampage MMOG, and I generally hate MMOGs so that says a lot.

ETA: oops, theyarecomingforyou beat me to it.

I just don't see them as some big evil giant out to do me harm. They're just some random company like any other random company to me.

You mean like every other American Politician?

Most politicians aren't too bad in that respect. After all, Thompson has never succeeded in a constitutional challenge against his retarded proposals.

The current Attorney General believes that the Second Amendment doesn't guarantee a personal right to bare arms.

This is getting off-topic, but that's a consequence of poor wording, and the old positivism vs. natural law debate. Also, I don't believe Thompson is a "lawmaker" in the legislative sense.

For an ex-lawyer, Thompson has a pretty poor grasp of the Constitution. Maybe he studied a joke copy with a 28th Amendment that he thinks allows these sorts of laws.

I'm more happy about the Boomer vomit fix than the melee spam nerf. Now if only they could figure out a way to make it so I don't constantly get paired up with total morons (e.g. stragglers who get trapped by a Hunter or Smoker and bitch you out for not magically teleporting back to help them)

Ah, the Melissa virus... reminds me of standing at my locker in middle school, listening to the intercom message instructing teachers not to open emails with the subject "ILOVEYOU".

I strongly approve of any gimmick that attracts immature players away from enjoyable multiplayer games.
