Love the logo
I thought it was an allusion to the Tomb Raider box. But that was 1996.

I think its supposed to resemble the 'Thief' box.
Ahh, so it is. The only version of the Thief box I was familiar with was the square one. But they reused the Tomb Raider trapezoid for Thief at one point too.

Thief box

PC FF7 was also released in a box like that. I think it's still the only somewhat valuable game I have in my collection. Though I don't see it going for the hundreds that it used to on ebay.

Wouldn't supporting Titanfall, in a roundabout way, also be shitting on Bobby K. ?

I for one am looking forward to this game. I played the beta a ton, and loved it. Great movement, good balance, and solid map design. It's pre-ordered and I'm itching to play. I'll take good gameplay any day.

Now, I've also play a lot of Battlefield. Let's face it, BF4 is a goddamn mess. They're crowning achievement, months after release, is a relatively stable game. The first DLC had no levolution events (so much for that marketing bullet) and the promised balance pass still hasn't arrived. There are some horrible balance issues, especially with regard to the vehicles and map design (see the MAA and Dragon Pass for excellent examples).

Skipped BF4. What I'm interested in now is new game dynamics and stability. Something CoD and the BF series haven't provided for a while. That's exactly what I felt in the beta for Titanfall. If you can stomach almost 14 minutes of Sessler and friends I think they really cover a lot of what I'm thinking about.

I've also been playing a lot of Loadout. It's also pretty damn stable with a surprisingly good netcode. But it's F2P and has leveling weapons so it feels cheap beating up on people with a level 6 beam weapon against their level 1 rocket or something. I don't mind unlocks so much in mp fps, but leveling weapons that increase their dmg, acc, etc. are too much.

Kids do weird shit, so that's forgiven. I took a bunch of kids from church to Micky D's, and a ten year old got an order of fries and a frosty. Then she proceeded to dip the fries into the frosty before eating them... :o

Weird... a few days ago on another forum I'm on somebody posted this:

I've been known to go to McDonalds and order fries, and then go to the Wendys right next door and order a frosty. Then I dip my fries in the frosty. It's epic.

You don't believe kids would create logins to play the demo? That's the most reasonable guess about an unexplained number I've ever heard on this site.

I'd reckon it's in every computer lab in schools across the country derp, I mean world. Probably the "Oregon Trail" of its time.

If a school computer has Java installed the admin should be flogged. And that single rule prevents Minecraft on school computers pretty well ;p

I would be surprised if the majority of schools didn't have java on their lab machines. And even if they didn't it's trivial to install depending on the degree that the machine is locked down. Many schools use(d) machines that reset to image everyday or whenever they're turned off and on.

Well in that game you could control the direction at least. And needed to collect stuff. Shit that game is advanced compared to Flappy Bird.

It's more of a direct rip off of an old popular flash game with a helicopter and green barriers.

I'm not afraid to state my life experiences Seph, and however that translates to your ego is up to you.

I have nothing against your life experiences. Why should I doubt them?

I simply relate mine and get called a liar, whereas you relate yours and put an absolutist spin on them. I readily acknowledge mine as anecdotal evidence, but yours are the absolute truth apparently.

That's completely false. The vast majority 'live' off-base among the communities they serve. Bases have minor amenities; you get necessities and some recreation. The vast majority live their lives off base unless they are in a war zone.

I don't know a single right-leaning veteran who comes out of the military as a leftist, and I know hundreds - that's complete crap. The opposite of your statement tends to happen. The military is everything most leftists tend to avoid like the plague. And yes, it's authoritative as expected when you sign the dotted line for however many years you want -- and the best life experience you can get paid to do if you can handle it.

Sepharo is half right.

I don't know what bases you've stayed in, but as a former Air Force brat I know Osan Air Base (in South Korea) has more than just the "basic necessities". I mean, hell, they even had a school and hospital. Pretty nice Tennis courts too. The base in Osan was just like the one my Dad worked in at Fort Devens, MA down to the AAFES convenience store. A guy could live pretty comfortably just within the base.

I also think you're over-estimating the extent military people "immerse" themselves in country they're based in. Most guys in Osan only went as far as downtown to buy bootlegs and meet women. I knew a few guys who actually lived in Korean apartments, but the extent of the Korean they knew was hello and goodbye. You might get a few more thoughtful guys out there who learn some of the history and culture, but the vast majority had as much knowledge as a tourist on a week-long trip. They do bring back a lot of cool souvenirs though.

Be prepared to be called a liar. Axis knows better than you.

A pitiful few would fit that grossly liberal assumption - you gave yourself away to those who would know better.

Americans don't join the military with arms pumping and war on their minds hoping to go into combat and kill someone or get themselves killed. They join in hopes to have a better life, get a free education, get job skills, get out of a bad situation, travel, etc. And if they are called to defend their country they gladly will with their life.

There's life experiences out there for you guys - leave the forums and go get them.

This seems to be a common theme with me and you. I tell you something from my life and you essentially (or sometimes outright) call me a liar.

So many of you liberals have absolutely no idea what you ask for, cause you have no idea what it's like outside your basement and lofty ideals. Go join the forces, do something for our country, experience the world, and come back wise.

The forces don't go elsewhere and make a living for themselves in a different culture.

Their time is paid for by the government/state. (Government employment : Pretty much the most leftist occupation you can have)
They don't have to experience life in other places.
They live on bases, in a different world than the nation they're located in.

-scheherazade

Spoken like a basement liberal.

Libertarian, actually.
That's right of center, FYI.

-scheherazade

Well then a basement libertarian, but certainly not one who has experienced the military overseas. I am a libertarian who served overseas and I certainly wouldn't have made those comments due to my views and world experience. The military has historically been on the right for many good reasons - most of which they are responsible people doing responsible work and have a profound love for their country they serve. Quite the opposite of much spin you hear from the liberal core... : )


I think his point was more that they live in their own unique "world". That's undeniably true.

My own anecdotal evidence would say that people I went to school with who went to war came back "lefter" than they left. That includes independent or completely disenchanted as well. But many of them went in strongly conservative. Exposure to cultures (good and bad aspects) other than your own tends to do that in my opinion.

If we're speaking metaphorically, the military operates much more like communism (the actual in practice authoritative kind) than other political philosophies. You've got a command structure, people are assigned jobs, and they do those jobs to the best of their ability usually for no reward but to the benefit of the whole.

Sorry. I thought we were talking about those who had went to war not just anyone in the military or on peaceful overseas bases. But even then I'd say they still somewhat removed from the culture of the area they're in. Sure they're exposed to it and I even touched on that in my reply. But it doesn't make the statement that "they live in their own world" incorrect. War zone or not being foreign military hosted in a country is not like being a citizen of that country.

For young war vets, I know 6 of them and 2 are pretty close friends. Like I said, they came back less "conservative". It's hard to pinpoint because it of course depends on the way we use terms like "left" "right" "conservative" "liberal" "libertarian" whatever. But in my opinion they left with opinions like, "Rah war yeah! Turn it into a glass pit! Republicans yeah!" but returned much more tempered and frequently against what are usually conservative staples. They came back having made friends with the Muslims they were training and questioning why we're there in the first place. It's probably more accurate to say they became independents than "leftists". You said "leftists" I simply said "lefter".

But sorry I'm rambling about anecdotal stuff. You've got some message to rant about, I'll let you get back to it.
