Apparently Atkinson also had something to do with an awesome new law in SA, in which R18 movies cannot be displayed in shops.

"While movies such as 2009 comedy The Hangover - which features on its cover a picture of three men holding a baby - will be affected by the new laws, MA15+ films with covers showing scantily-clad women - such as Lesbian Vampire Killers - won't be.

Likewise, MA15+ film Saw - which depicts a bloody, severed foot on its cover - can still be freely displayed, while 2005 hit Fight Club - which features a photograph of Brad Pitt and Edward Norton - can't be."

Good work retards.

Archer is kind of a wanker.
There is an episode where he refuses to give a cure for a fatal disease to an entire race because he believes they need to die out to make things easier for another "superior" race living on the planet.
So he basically commits genocide for purely racist reasons.
And Janeway is like a horrible school teacher.

All of the QA guys at my last job were let go about 5 months ago.
They worked really hard, had low wages, and had to put in a ton of overtime with no pay. Nice to be appreciated huh.
And a couple of months later, about 20 artists, animators and designers producers and programmers got dumped.
Pretty selfish thing to say, but I had left a couple of weeks before and I wish I hadn't now because I would have had a nice redundancy.

So Aussies, get on the phone with your elected officials and demand they educate themselves on this!

Well its just one guy blocking it. Which is pretty screwed up.
Oh well, Good thing I'm moving back to New Zealand, Legal Violent Video games and Hookers! WOoo

I think its that they are worried about getting a shitty multiplatform game vs good exclusive.
And a lot of games really do get dumbed down, Or the PC version gets ignored and is released unstable, lacking in features or with a clunky interface.

Even so, The whole time I was playing the original Witcher I was thinking to myself that there is no reason it wouldn't work perfectly fine on consoles. I'm sure they would have censored some of the game, But they did that anyway in the US release.
They might have to change the UI around a bit, And while I would rather not use a console style interface, it wouldn't have been any worse then what was already in there.
I was disappointed when they canceled the original port, I probably would have bought it again on 360 just so I could get some of my consoles only friends to play it.

I bought this game, and it took me 2 weeks to get around all the starforce problems and into the game.
I didn't know it used starforce and I'd never used a starforce game before so I had no idea how many problems it would cause.
Now I know to make sure to avoid it in the future.

As good as this game is, I wont be buying anything else from these devs until they change the copy protection.

This sounds pretty stupid to me.
Sure there was a secret crashed alien spaceship in the old games but I don't think it was supposed to be taken seriously.
Can we expect Dr Who, Star Trek or Monty Python DLC next?
Ah whatever, I don't care anymore

I would buy it. Except that I wouldn't be able to gift the copy's of the games I already own.
Not falling for that one again.

theyarecomingforyou

Your review scores are misleading.
Hitman 2 was reviewed years before Blood Money was released
Its like pulling out an old Wolf3d review (which would have scored highly in its day) and comparing it to something average for its time like Kane and Lynch.
And then concluding that Wolfenstein must be a more enjoyable game.

Doesn't really matter I guess since its pretty subjective.
But I agree with Jerykk. I thought Blood Money was great.

The ArmA demo was horrible too. It ran like shit and I couldnt even manage to finish the mission.

Luckily I went ahead and bought it anyway.
If you liked Opflash, then you missed out on a great game buddy

News Comments > Far Cry 2 Postmortem

Thanks god, I thought I was the only person who hated this hunk of crap. I'd take Crysis and Farcry 1 over this any day.
I think its easier to list the things I liked in this game then list all the things I hated.
I liked the art. Yup, that's about it.

Whats really disappointing is that this seems to be Ubisofts new design of choice. Make a little bit of a game, and then repeat over and over and over, Then pump out a sequel or 2 using the same art assets.
Well, I'm not getting fooled again.

That seems the be the ubisoft motto...farcry 2

Micheal Atkinson is a funny guy. I watched an interview with him the other day where he said the research on the average age of gamers and the poll asking if people wanted an R18 rating for games (90%) was "Rubbish" funded by "company's who want to publish violence, and sex, depraved sex" then he did the little money thing where you rub your fingers and thumbs together. He also loves to talk about how gamers are going to "eliminate me, whatever that means" wink wink oh so subtle, gamers are all murderers, nudge nudge.

Oh and movies and books are fantasy but "in games your actually going out and killing people"

It was embarrassing to be caught playing this game.
Its really really trashy.
And the actual gameplay was like a dumbed down version of C&C 3.

Jerykk
And yet it was genius

If fallout 3 had a mission where you suicide bombed a building by flying a plane into it, and bethesda removed it in the US.
Then I'd say you guys had an equal level of "pussyness" as the Japanese do over having their city's nuked.

I actually do think they should leave it in and not censor it.
