I like my tab, I just don't need to update it as often as the industry may want me to. Nothing more than that.

I don't understand the controversy. We've been murdering pixel people in games for a lot of years. Why is a game that doesn't justify it somehow more objectionable than one that candy coats it and tells you you're the good guy for doing it?

Because moral crusaders believe people are inherently weak and will internalize the lessons of anything they read, listen to or play. And this time, the moral crusaders are on the far-left, and leftists already largely believe that other humans are weak, so it's a natural fit.

Everybody does this... assumes the other guy is the asshole. You get it... they don't. For example every one of us from time to time is an asshole driver, but rarely put themselves in that role.

But it is correct there are different freedoms on where things like Freedom of Speech fall. Places of mass attendance vs towards a gov't, vs speaking on behalf of a company vs personal. Since this is fantasy it doesn't fall into these realms. It isn't putting people at risk (like airport), it has nothing to do with gov't/corporation and if anything it falls into personal, which has thee most freedoms of speech.

Speech however isn't fantasy where as everything in a game is. WITH one large caveat to those that want some censorship. Places like STEAM etc do have a right to not sell it and that is good and fine. Steam could have not sold this game and I would have been fine with it. I would be more un-fine if they couldn't make the game at all and try to sell it on their own personal site. I assume if you make something that controversial, that will be the only place you will be able to sell it, like underground books.

The only logic that works at this time is it isn't real, so do you police fantasy? If so then we have a problem with imagination and dreams.

Right, but then we police creativity in one way but not the other.
Video game sex is a no no but killing is alright?
Everyone likes to throw the free speech argument around but it is all skewed anyways.
I still find it interesting how sexuality is considered a lot more offensive than killing.
Since it's all pixels anyways so why does it matter?

Right. Church Lady lost the battle with killing pixels, but hasn't lost the battle with fucking pixels, so they hold on to whatever they can.

That said... the weird thing is a Death Race 2000 / Carmageddon game doesn't affect me the same way. It must be the cheesy humor from the old movie that makes it feel different... which makes it more fantasy-like than realistic sadism.

Well we don't know the total sense of humor for this game, I will say I did chuckle at a part of the official trailer.

I want those rape sims to be greenlit next please
They are just pixels so should be no big deal right?

I guess so, in my book of nasties as bad as rape is, killing is still a notch worse. You can't put logic to this because we are all pixel killers and really what can be worse? Nothing, the rest is some type of perception based around broken logic, the only thing happening is one has been desensitized while another hasn't. We can't even have a lot of fucking going on in games. That can't be worse than killing. It is all broken logic.

If you believe in the same morals in real life as you do for pixels in fantasy, good for you and being a frequent member of BN's is a strange choice since a large part of the games the report on are killing pixel simulators.

The only logic that works at this time is it isn't real, so do you police fantasy? If so then we have a problem with imagination and dreams.

The parental generation of this professor said the same things about the professors generation. You'd think a teacher would see the revolving use of words like "kids these days", they've said it since the dawn of time. Lets get it together people. And if it is "kids today" who is leading and teaching them... yes... "Adults these days".

i think that this is exactly the reason that esports are actually a superior global medium for competition. because there IS no physical barrier to entry. the olympics are about genetics.

If a lot of people played games competitively, the cream will still rise and there will be a physical/mental reason why. So again another genetics win. Bastards never lose.

Why would they be? It is coming to theaters on Christmas. Is it even an option for them? EDIT: I see it is. This thing is a circus unto itself.

It gets to the point where you have purchased everything, either stuff you wanted, stuff that was cheap, or all of the heavily discounted really good games.

Now it is just new new stuff that is 10% off - not a big deal, and garbage......

Yeah my guess is many of us are in that bucket.

As for DA:I imo they haven't patched it yet. Their dicking us, so I'll be a dick back, fuck it's EA.

Masturbation is more worthy of being an Olympic sport than video games, chess, golf

Wow deep, I'd say golf is ahead of masturbation by an inch or two.

Yeah, if it's Berlin good I'll buy it, but no more backing.

You know, I replayed DMS and liked it quite a bit once I just settled into the story. The writing and atmosphere is great. Overall, I enjoyed Dragonfall more, if only because there was so much more great content (not to mention the superb enhancements that are only present in that campaign), but I think the original campaign gets more flack than it deserves.

I agree, the highlight of this game is the stories delivery, both have the same, the second just more of it.
