Is it legit? On my headphones I hear a lot of bass when the animals respond, which is not how it sounds in real life. Yes I've been in the wilds with coyotes yapping and howling like that. They can be close to you and you won't know it.

Just imagine the childish political in-fighting turf war that happened within MS to get this out.

I found the one quests where you murder turtles for medicinal value to be offensive. Even a Korean game should not do that in Korea considering the senseless slaughter of animals around the world that causes so many animal populations to disappear when a sugar pill would probably be just as effective.

I've played it and found it uninspired so far. The quests and loot are dull. The graphics are okay. I have no interest to craft a home or boat. What else can be crafted? Weaps/armour? I keep wanting to like an MMO but...

Also why did it take them this long to come out with this? It's been two years since the Snowden revelations.

They hadn't publically lied about the program for a little awhile and got twitchy. Gotta keep practicing!

I lol'd.

The will of the people overwhelmingly is for cheap, fast, reliable internet.

Yes we do. I doubt municipal BB would usually be cheap, fast or reliable and almost never all three at the same time. And once you have a government providing this sort of 'service' they're near impossible to reign in some fiscal or service accountability. It's just another monopoly that can hurt a better functioning market. They won't care that their routers reboot every twenty minutes and that packet loss is atrocious. They won't have to care. Their jobs will be secure and you won't be able to do much about it except be forced to pay for it through some new tax that keeps going up every few years.

Since the local government will control municipal BB, it will give the local police another way to spy and monitor you since it's the same government. Instead of practicing sensible security they can use any security issue as a reason to fine you or arrest you or worse. That is how they think.

That said, there are and have been for some time, private (non profit I think) companies that provide free wireless broadband in many areas. I think it can be done successfully by the private sector in various ways. I'm all for that since it doesn't force (through violence or threat of violence) other people to pay for it.

Yeah I found sub level 30 to be grindy and well, boring. The quests were boring and not voice acted. There was talk that it rewards exploration but I didn't see much of that. I want to like it or find something fun about it but didn't, and I don't care that much for crafting either. Spend a couple hours working to craft a weap or something might be fun, or not. But I liked reading Trev's post too.

some of these comments seemed to emphasize freedom for consumers while others advocated freedom for ISPs, two positions seemingly at odds with one another.

Only at odds if the duopoly is allowed to continue. Once much more open competition is allowed then freedom for ISP's would include freedom for new ISP's to offer non-prioritized traffic and possibly out-compete the monopolistic dinosaur ISP's we have now.

All that said, the I still think issue has been blown well out of proportion. The N.N. issue is bordering on mass hysteria.

    Yes your future game will turn you in to the FBI Online Game Enforcement Center should it deem your behavior deviant. Militarized eff bee eye police in black nazi helmets will bust your door down, taze you, pepper spray you, shoot your dog and then hold you for questioning. Murica!!

    Seriously though, this is entirely the WRONG entity to even approach or have involved in this sort of poor game behavior deterrent. Really, I think these devs are ignorant to the actual nature of whom they're building this sort of relationship. I can't stress this enough that it's terrible nazi-sounding PR.

    Digital distribution generally circumvents taxation. Justify an "environmental" tax on digital distribution, problem solved.

    Because taxing things makes them environmentally so much better Rolleyes Especially when based off biased corporate propaganda internet articles.

    15. The executive order that led to mass spying, as told by NSA alumni. Aug 28, 2014, 14:40 LittleMe
     
    Reagan was a moderate, but I believe he had to surround himself with power hungry neocons to even get in office, let alone stay there.

    Side note: a cousin of mine was one of his advisers and I got a private tour of the oval office and other restricted areas in '86. Personal info 'reveal of the day' complete.

    And perhaps as a surprise to an American who spent time in the UK, their own variances of spoken English are even greater than ours here. So it's all sort of moot.

    One can easily obsess about language usage, but it's mostly obsessive compulsive thinking why someone can get so worked up about it especially in a more casual online setting. As if there aren't more pressing issues in the world, lets get worked up over this too!

    Wait, what? Wholly rigged is exactly what we have now. That's some sort of reverse argument because you're saying something entirely different is the same as what we have now.

    Consumer choice is a much more powerful regulator than a federal bureaucracy that follows laws written by big media corporations who control the lobby.

    While I agree that N.N. is Marxist, I also believe the duopoly is fascist. Neither are good. Yes, the feds would love to have more regulatory authority over the Internet via Net Neutrality and I don't think much good would come of it. Rather most Federal intervention/regulation would be a string of failed promises that would go unrealized by the public but instead blamed on capitalism and not the failures fascism or marxism.

    The most powerful regulator of the Internet should be consumer choice and not government-granted monopolistic consumer-gouging deals.

    The very notion that more government control of the Internet would solve it is laughable. We need less, not more. The socialist mindset that is conditioned into children by our school system and TV news by default thinks that whenever government fails we must need more government regulation. Thus our current situation.

    So now what happens if there's a protest in CA? I bet they shut your phones off if you're anywhere near it. That way the police can shoot you at their sole discretion and get away with it. Good thing CA is so pro-gun ownership so the people can defend themselves against globalist corporate controlled tyranny. Oh wait..

    Yeah Amazon > Google here. Awesome. I hope Twitch can get a lot more bandwidth soon, too. This should help fund it. Their network is pushed to the limit too often (seems that way anyway).

    Well IMO it's not just lobby money but corporations using government to give themselves advantage in the marketplace. Or in this case, destroying competition when fair competition would not do the same. It's corporate socialism, not just lobby money. You'll never stop money influencing government policy, but you CAN limit the power of government to take these sorts of actions over time by limiting the power of government in the first place.

    Sad to see Risen 3 isn't in the list. Most ppl who give it an honest chance would see the passion the devs put into that game.

    Cool thanks for the comment on it. So do you suggest we play it on easy to avoid the game's combat? I'm waiting for it to be half price.
