Like I said, I grew to like it a lot in AC4 (Black Flag)... I only hated it in AC3 for some reason... Though now in Rogue it's wearing out its welcome for me, too... I think it's just more of a feeling of, "Ok, so is EVERY damn assassin from now on going to be a fucking pirate??"... It's just an enough is enough sort of thing... *shrug*

The pirate ships actually first showed up in AC3, and I hated that part of it... (Never finished the game because I hated the ship combat so much...) I thought I was going to loathe AC4 since it was centered around the ship stuff so much, but I actually grew to like it a lot there... I'm currently playing AC: Rogue, and am growing increasingly tired of the ship shit again, but at least there's a lot of land-based stuff to do instead, too...

Die hard console gamers wont touch it with a ten foot pole

I've been pretty much a console-only gamer since, hmmmm, when did GTA3 come out? That's when I bought a PS2... Then, when GTA4 came out, I bought an Xbox360... When these were anounced the other day, I preordered one... Will I regret it when GTA6 comes out and isn't available on it? Maybe, or maybe I'll just have to buy another console to use alongside it... I see it more as buying a new gaming PC rig, but one I can play comfortably on my TV with a console-like controller... I don't really want to upgrade my workstation, and it needs to run old CentOS for work, so it won't be able to play many games anyway... Having a new machine dedicated to just gaming, for use in front the TV, but with all the benefits of PC gaming (access to mods and levels and whatnot) sounds like pure heaven to me! And, yeah, being a Linux nut, I love that they're pushing Linux support in games now too, and I definitely want to support that... They've got my money for sure!

They are basically only marketing this to soccer moms and possible console converts.

Yeah, I don't game on PC anymore, because my PC runs Linux for work (which wouldn't be a problem now with Valve pushing for Linux ports of everything, but it's also ancient and slow, and there's not much real practical reason for upgrading, and I need to run ancient CentOS5 too), so all my gaming for a long time has been console... PS2 then Xbox360... I've been contemplating whether to get a PS4 or Xbone, but now I think I'll skip both and just get a Steam Machine instead!

I just pre-ordered one of the Alienware i5 models...

The worst possible thing I can wish on these self-proclaimed "Christians" is that their religion is true... Because, Christ sure as hell isn't going to be very happy with the shitty things they've been doing in his name down here... His ass-kicking of the money changers would be nothing compared to what he would do to these assholes...

9. Re: Radcliffe to play "Grand Theft Auto" Creator Apr 10, 2015, 06:25 Agrajag
 
"Harry Potter" actor Daniel Radcliffe is in negotiations to star in BBC Films' "Grand Theft Auto," a film about the true story fight between the creator of "Grand Theft Auto" and a Miami lawyer who aimed to ban video game violence.

Oh, man, they're going to have a Jack Thompson character in this? It just got 1000% cooler sounding! I can't wait to see the part about him sending gay porn to a judge...

Or the baker is forced to go against their own religious beliefs.

How so? I don't recall anything anywhere in the Bible saying, "Thou shalt not bake cakes for the homos!"... He's only forced to go against his inate bigotry, which has absolutely zero to do with his religious beliefs...

Interesting dilemma. There are specific businesses I choose not to go to, because they racially discriminate against white people. There's no chance I could sue them and actually win.

LOLWUT? Racially discrimate against white people? Are you in bizarro world or the mirror universe or something?

But, you know, the Civil Rights Act made it pretty clear that public businesses are not allowed to racially disciminate at all... So, if such businesses exist anywhere outside of your fevered imagination, they are breaking the law...

Oh come on Bill! They literally get away with murder! You think they're even in the least bit concerned about this?

I heard they all turned their backs on him while updating his Wikipedia entry to call him a big doodiehead...

We are fighting a war on the street.

I know its a figure of speech but this is disturbing. If policemen feel they are in danger 24/7 they are much more likely to use excessive force.

Yeah, quotes like that don't exactly help with the public image of police as overly militarized bullies who see all non-cops as enemy combatants... You're not in Iraq, guys! Those people you're dealing with aren't enemy soldiers; they're citizens whose rights you're supposed to be protecting... Yes, even the "bad guys"...

What's the point? What market are they trying to capitalize on?

I don't know, maybe people like me... My real PC is an ancient workstation running CentOS, which I use for programming for work... It's too old (and CentOS5 is too old a system) to run anything newer than Quake3... Plus, it's for work not play... I have no interest in ever owning a Windows PC again, so buying one of those is right out... I play most of my games these day in front of my TV via my Xbox360... I'm not yet sold on either Xbone or PS4 this generation, but am really intrigued by the Steam Machine idea... Being a Linux fan, I like the SteamOS concept and that they're porting all their games and convincing others to do the same... Sure, I could buy/build my own PC and install SteamOS on it, I suppose, but I'm getting too old for that shit! I'd just as soon spend the money on a ready-to-go solution... So, when these things finally come out, I might just pick one up...

Spoken like a true proletariat stooge. Lenin used low-information voters like you to create a revolution in my home country. Now Obama's using people like you for a soft coup. Some things never change.

It was only a matter of time until someone invoked Godwin's l....wait did you say Lenin? Well that's different.

I have to wonder if that's sarcasm... No real right-winger could be so self-unaware as to call the left-wing "low-information voters" with a straight face, could they? I mean, that just has to be a joke! The party of willful ignorance, anti-science, and anti-intellectualism telling the other side that they're the know-nothings? Just WAY too out there to buy as serious...

But, maybe it's Poe's Law in action...

I don't think that's it. If that was all there was to it, games wouldn't track ammo, either.

Well, there's a line you have to walk between fun and challenging... You don't really want to give everyone god mode and unlimited ammo by default... That may be fun to just run around and go nuts once in a while, but for the game to have any real playability, there needs to be SOME level of challenge... But, if you make things TOO challenging and put in too many rules and restrictions, things start to get less and less fun, too...

And how much does the old school hate regenerating health? A lot. And usually because "it's not realistic," because health packs and turkey platters are much, much more immersive.

Heh. I hate it too, and not because it's not realistic... As you point out, it's MORE realistic than old-school health packs and such... (People really DO heal on their own over time! Just not usually as fast as depicted in games...) I hate it because it forces you to abandon the action and do nothing for a while to keep from dying... Eg: I'm finally playing Assassin's Creed IV (I know, I'm way behind the times!), and I absolutely hate that they've switched to that regen health crap now... In AC2 and 3, I'd just carry plenty of medicine with me, and then in tough fights when running low on health, I could just instantly power back up and continue the fight... Now, I have to run away like a pussy and hide until I'm better! It's annoying as hell... I also dislike that they seem to have done away with armor entirely, as far as I can tell... (Aside from hull armor for your ship...)

Nor is every game DOOM, an over-the-top shootarama. When a game like Half Life 2 does it while pretending to be all immersive, it's just weird. It really feels like something that's there just because Wolfenstein happened to do it that way, and now that's what gamers expect.

Sure, games are different, and for some I'm sure the ultra-realism makes sense... I just tend to not want to play those type of games...

But really? Their tag line is "Can someone carry a lot of heavy shit?" It's a bad sign when common sense answers your myth easily.

I dunno, I think I had that discussion briefly on this board. A certain class of FPS player really hates games that limit you to two guns at a time, and trash it as console crap. But, I mean, it seems kind of realistic, yes? And I think the heavy realism games like Red Orchestra and ARMA hold you to one rifle and one sidearm. I thought it was a weird case of "this is what I'm grew up on and is therefore objectively the best."

I think it's more a case of "real life limitations aren't very fun in a game"... When I'm playing a game, I don't want it to be realistic; I want it to be fun... If I want realism, I can go outside... The biggest appeal of video games is they let you do all kinds of unrealistic shit you'd never be able to do in real life... Don't throw zombies and demons at me, then try to toss in some nod to "realism" by limiting how many fucking guns I can carry! We've already agreed to throw real life out the window, so don't half-ass it! You're not making the game more realistic, you're just making it less fun...

Oh, how interesting. I didn't realize that mobile data was a completely different kind of data. All these corporations are such cockbags. You make billions in profits and it's still never enough. You just have to keep trying to stick it in and break it off sans lube. Why aren't the terrorists killing those assholes? They're the real problem, not Joe Sixpack on the street.

What's hilarious (in a sad, frustrating, insanity-inducing way) is just yesterday we had a story where the same AT&T were arguing that they WERE common carriers, so the FTC has no jurisdiction to tell them to stop throttling unlimited data plans! They're like Schrodinger's common carrier!

Why should I go into detail and point out that 8 out of the 11 stances she took on just that ONE link I posted is textbook liberal?

And, are therefore wrong? Is it your claim that if a decision is one that liberals applaud it's always wrong, no matter what? If so, then wow, I have nothing more to say... But, if not, then what makes you think she reached all those decisions due solely to bias rather than by just reaching the correct decision based on the Constitution, which then just happened to match what liberals wanted?

Also, I assume you also think as little of Alito, Scalia, and Thomas? Because, most of their decisions seem to line up pretty damn closely with conservative agendas, too... So, they must be just as biased, right? Or, is it ok, because they're biased the "right way"?

Roberts has proven to be fairly neutral, much to the disappointment of the hard right.

Let me guess what one of you peas in the pod will say next... you'd like me to give you specific examples in regards to Robert's neutrality? See Ag, there are mind readers here on Blues...

Actually, I know the perfect example case you could cite to backup that claim: Obamacare! He was the only conservative to join the liberals in finding it Constitutional (though via his tax theory rather than via the way they wanted it upheld)... Even Kennedy, the traditional swing vote, didn't side with them!

Horrible insults like asking if one is a native English speaker! I never knew being from a foreign country was such an insulting thing to be... And, here I thought I was being nice by giving him the benefit of the doubt that that was his problem...

Just one case she clearly botched so horribly she could be considered one of the worst of all time.

Just one. Not even a preponderance of the evidence that she's the absolute worst of all time, just one case that demonstrates that, if all cases were exactly like that, she'd be in even the bottom 10%.

What's most amusing is that this entire thread is about a story about a case which clearly demonstrates that she didn't allow her personal feelings and opinions to bias her judgement... So, we already have at least one counter-example against his claim, and he can't even provide a single supporting example for it!

/I think she was on the wrong side in Aereo, but so was Roberts, and I wouldn't say he had a big liberal bias...

I know that when someone starts a "debate" with insults like "Meh Meh Is English not your native language or something?? Meh Meh", they aren't to be taken seriously.

How in the hell is that an insult? Are you unaware of the existence of other countries where English is not the native language or that they have access to the Internet? It was a genuine question, because you honestly appeared to not understand what Verno was asking you, and kept replying with something completely unrelated and unhelpful while insisting that you had provided him with the "proof" he asked for... I simply assumed you might be foreign and struggling with the language... I guess I should've just jumped to the obvious conclusion that you were being deliberately obtuse and trolly...

And when that same someone follows up with a "Meh Meh fuck you very much as well", I know I was correct in my thinking.

Just responding in kind to you! Telling me I'm unworthy of your time because I don't care about debate or facts is just a nice way of saying "Fuck you!"... I just tend to be a bit more blunt when I insult someone...
