then where does it stop.
Here. It stops with this game and rape simulators. And pupping torturing simulators. Draw a line for once.

Why do video games get lines where movies and books don't?

See I want sex in games, but for some reasons it is tip toeing at best.

Movies and books have no problems with sex.

You draw a line here, it easily goes into games you most likely will enjoy, there is a lawyer ready to argue your pixel killing is as bad as the banned one.

I'm all for, if you don't like it don't buy it. I'm good if you say why you don't like it. I'm not a fan in saying "this should be banned, because you don't like it", we all want freedom, we don't want a dictator, but comments like those are dictatorial in nature. I don't like, want banned.

And I am one that totally has no problem with understanding the difference between real and fantasy.

Oh well.

And we all can agree these things change (back to that early access thingy)? Lastly, the air drops are not mandatory and you will be given them in game on occasion from what I have read/heard. Sounds good to me so far. I don't read that as pay to win... seems a bit of a stretch.

This was a moving story, so we are caught up in that a bit.

You are correct, EA/Beta things can change.

It started out though... their original thought was you buy the drop and in this case it landed basically right on top of you. The plane was faster, the crate fell faster. So this was really pushing it being PTW. Pay $5 get goods, leg up on those just looking for goodies in the trash.

Then the first backlash and response from Smed occurs.

Change, EA/Beta, right?

Now the plane moves slower and the crate falls slower and it isn't nearly as accurate to fall at your feet. Now your $5 loot is at play amongst others equally. Agreed this isn't a lot less PTW than previously. But now it has created this new category. Pay to Have Fun, Pay for Conflict. We're just questioning what type of person would pay $5 for someone else to get your stuff. I guess a sugar daddy. Just strange that warrants the topic and the replies.

That said, stop buying early access you fuckwits. And if you do buy early access, stop fucking freaking out when an incomplete early access game on its launch day isn't exactly what you want.

Not sure who you are speaking to, I take it most in this post haven't purchased it and just responding to the news.

I also get the point a couple back, if someone wants to buy an air drop in which they don't have a much better chance than the next guy in getting, it is their money to waste, who cares? They are playing sugar daddy for the rest of us.

Probably another reason I'm so down on MMO's, they have a way of making epic cluster fucks more often, on average.

I wish I could find the blues comments from when someone tried making a columbine simulator, as that's what this essentially is. You walk around in a trench coat killing innocent people for no reason.

It has a right to exist, but it's asinine.

Are there books and movies with those themes? If so then why not video games? Or should they all be banned and remember you ban them, then you have this in court with "here we see this girzzly act which was banned, but here this is as grizzly or even more so, why shouldn't this be banned, your honor?"

I guess I really don't care overall if it is banned, I just don't know why it would when other things exist. I got a foot in the grave like the next person, there are no perfect answers. I just have the ability to make ok with real from not real.

I personally have a bigger issue with a 10+ year war we have going on in the real, it was justified early on, now it seems to exist as a fear machine to grease the war pigs, I could be wrong.

I couldn't care less if I'm labeled a SJW, moral crusader, hypocrite, whatever - my opinion is that this game is disgusting, and I don't know why anyone would defend it's existence.

And those acting like it's no different than other games are either willfully ignorant or just stupid.
Also, my opinion

Because I've played too many games as a killer of pixels. Right your opinion, since it is fantasy, it is absolutely the same as many other killing pixel games to me.

Or is this going to be like the movie "In the Mouth of Madness", everyone reads the book, learns their part in a Lovevratian horror part that becomes the new reality, aka make me a killer for real? I have 100% confidence it isn't. As for an Adult rating, fine with that, that is no worries.

IMO if you have a problem like this, then you do have some Thompson in you, then where does it stop. Because you know lawyers will start lining up in the way I describe. "Your honor since Hatred was banned, here let me show you some footage from that, and now here are another 100 games footage, really aren't they the same your honor? And shouldn't they all be banned?".

Unless you think this game sparks real death in the real world, imo you should role with it, if you don't like it, ignore. Because it has a dark over-tone, it is still fiction. There are many books and movies with crazy dark over tones. Some I may see/read, others I have no interest.

On the other hand, there are a ton of used GTA V games out there for consoles. Don't know why anyone needs a PC version after it has been out so long.

I don't own a console and I'm not going to buy one for a single game.


Agreed, the first day of release on the PC will be the first opportunity I'll have buying and playing it... the way I want to.

So beyond the PTW.

They are saying they want to make it fun and competitive, then set it up like how you can setup a 7D2D server, have timed drops, does the same thing in the name of fun vs someone having to buy fun for everyone.

If it becomes what they like, then people have to pay for something they may not get. Do they read what they write? If it is open battle Roy Al, then just make the game have timed drops.

This is becoming an outright joke, I was looking forward to this and wow coming out of the gate like this, is just bad.

the main goal of GTA isn't murder.

If there was no murder in this game it would be nothing. GTA V, modern urban environment, taking the worst of society, putting it in a game, because they knew it would sell. Pretty much what I suspect if I looked it up in Websters.

A lot of games we play it is about pixel killing (ARPG's) which I related 0% to vs real killing. I have no shame in killing pixels. In life I'm 0-life on killing people, it could be my prime objective, to leave this planet with zero real murders under my belt. Pixel murders could be in the trillions for I'll I care.

You guys are buying into it, you are blurring lines, they are reprogramming you without you noticing.

Many games I play as the supposed good guy, but in the end, end up killing more, without thought then the bad guy ever did. Somewhat in an ironic way that I'm sure how our armed forces in the realz are looked at after awhile by bystanders in whatever country we are in today, working a hidden agenda masked with "Saving the free world".

You all need to go back to sucking Jack Thompson's dick and stop pretending you haven't murdered zillions of pixel people over the years with very thin pretenses of justification. Including innocent pixel people and cop pixel people.

Suddenly some people make a game that doesn't attempt to justify or make excuses for it's "protagonist" and everyone is offended. Check your hypocrisy.

I'm with you. One of our most verbal members has a 2x4 up his ass so far on this one, but a week or so ago another censorship/freedom post came up and he was so Pro-freedom, that how it was worded had to be ok with Hatred existing, because we just have to be allowed to.

It's hard to see ourselves sometimes. As I grew older a lot of "can you believe people do that?" comes up and really I've been that person to from time to time. We all are asshole drivers, you drive, from time to time you are an asshole on the road, for other drivers perspectives.

Do NOT preorder this, even if you previously purchased and enjoyed a console version. For the love of god, wait until the quality of the port is assessed and stop fucking pre-ordering shit until you know if they've given our platform the respect it deserves.

Right. If $50'ish dollars really matter to you, I'd suggest waiting to be sure.

Each release is just that, one can point to GTA 4, sucked. But Max Payne good! Well Ubi was on a roll for a while with good ports and looked what happened in 2014? We don't know what is going on behind scenes, this industry isn't below fucking it up royally.

Overon wrote on Jan 17, 2015, 01:24:
Gamers don't have the courage of their convictions. It will be like the boycott COD group playing the new COD on day one. Few players will ask for refunds percentage wise. The devs know this and this is a pr win with low monetary cost.

Or another possibility. That each person speaks for themselves, so when 10 people come here and whine, ultimately it is 10 people not 10,000. Those getting their money back are getting what they want. Those not asking for money back are getting what they want. The people you speak to seem to be people that want their money back, but rather complain about it then go getting it, imo that will be few. It isn't near everyone that wants their money back and we have to respect that, that what we conclude isn't always what another will do.

SOE has 3 large scale games in beta/dev: H1, Landmark and Next, the two we can get our hands on... wow they have a lot of work in front of them and a LOT OF DIRECTION needed. I wonder if this is what past projects looked like internally and now we see it, or if they've slid a bit back, I know Landmark while in some ways pushing the envelope forward a game needs to be in there to.

So ok we have a lot of these open world survival games.

The beni that this game can bring is a monster development team.

So perhaps they can take it to levels we haven't seen.

They are having server issues, yes they will go away, but indies have done it better out of the gate. Indies actually give us more freedoms to.

But then the devastating blow of buying weapons, gear and ammo with real money trying to hide that with drops. They talked about how they were going to keep it to non-competitive purchases and then come out with possibly the most lopsided way to give an advantage if you spend. Then defending it by not taking it back, but offering refunds to those that don't like it, pretty much saying "the way drops are, are final", I will never play a game like that, I know many won't, some will. But they just kicked a lot of players out with this, right now I am out no matter what they do if they keep that.

It can rebound, but it now has double the red flags up from me.

Edit: Read smedley remarks, he understands it needs tweaked, understands right now as it sits, PTW. Will have to see how they tweak guns, ammos and armor purchases that aren't PTW.

Slick wrote on Jan 16, 2015, 11:48:
you know what would actually be a cool feature? if windows 10 had a gaming feature that would just lump all of your titles on your harddrive across all different publishers all into one simple list. (they used to do something like that i remember, pre everything being digital)

So there could just be one service that runs lite versions of steam, origin, uplay etc. in the background that you'd never even have to know existed. All you see if you list of installed games, click on them, then play.

I mean that would be a killer app regardless if M$ makes it or not.

That is about all the probably can do now and if they/someone did it right, I can see the benefit. MS could have had 30% (like Steam) of all PC sales with just keeping the Software Service updated and running. No cost of HW, buying exclusive, no retail costs. They spent a lot of money on something they could have spent little on and made a killin. LOL totally missed it. On guy in MS knew, he had to leave the company to show them, but he is just a sliver, a large sliver, but not the whole.

I want to know what makes W10 the best for gamers on the PC?

My guess is:
-share your gamertag between xbox and PC
-touchscreen support
-native xbox controller support
-kinect camera compatible with windows pc
-smart glass
-I don't know some other bullshit noone cares about we'll figure it out as we go

Hope support won't get cut anytime soon for Win7

-Use the power of the cloud?
Boy that one fell fast on its face, instead they have to take cores back from Kinect and O/S tasks, lol. The cloud did exactly what educated gamer thought.

Maybe these are all great changes, how many people really go back and see for themselves? Tough roads ahead.

What I find amazing is mmo with years of patch notes a mile long... as basically it all plays the same still, relatively speaking.

Gamers will vote with wallets, we shall see.

Gamers are idiots, they fed the beast that became steam and MMO's thereby paving the way for always online DRM.

The free market can only exist if you have people intelligent enough to make valid decisions and punish companies, otherwise you get criminal behavior.

Leave personal emotion out of it and if gamers are smart or stupid...

If they make money at it then it was right for them. We can voice are opinion and we individually can or not buy the game.

Put it this way, the existence of PC Gaming doesn't hinge on this game being a success or not, so we don't need to worry at a level like that. They don't give me what I want, I go elsewhere, doesn't mean it will be a failure for them.

In my review, I just don't see why the cost of this game is so high for what they are giving, let alone if the game is really really fun.

As someone said UT back in the day gave a lot more bang for the buck, for less. MP Games are funny, there isn't a fresh story, however people buy these reoccurringly and the value has dropped significantly over the years as they take away features. But if that is what makes them happy...
