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.

That photographer was climbing up the wrong copyright tree..? The court wouldn't have any of this monkey business. He'll probably go ape shit next time this happens.

Hmm... What about self driving cars that don't need a human -- delivery trucks for example? I'm not looking forward to millions of jobless or homeless truck drivers.

Yeah! What about the millions of wagon wheel makers and also the thousands no longer employed now homeless who made the 8bit computers? My father worked in the factory that made the 386 chips and he's been homeless and destitute ever since the 486 and Pentiums ruined the 386 industry.

Some people are so sensitive.

In his defense, when you live on the 36th floor, you get used to walking around the house in your skivvies and not worrying about anyone seeing you.

I read Blue as being jokingly sarcastic in that statement. I think he agrees with you.

It's a great FPS. I just found the inventory gamepad centered UI to be very frustrating. That said I don't understand most of the hate for the game. They did a great job with BL2. It was a big improvement over BL1 I thought. So what it's not a graphical wonder. It's fun and they got so much else right with the genre.

This is interesting. Not sure a major studio has ever let the public play test this early before.

Insert Battlefield 4 game joke here.

There are solutions to remove corporate money from politics. How? One is via constitutional amendment. "But you'll never get that through congress! They're already bought and paid for!" There's a back door way using the (less compromised) state legislatures to call for a constitutional convention to achieve it. Read about it here, or listen to Dan Carlin's interview of Cenk Uyger. The other way is via electing congress people to implement campaign finance reform. Harvard law professor Lawrence Lessig's Mayday PAC is trying to do just that.

If I may please.. There is another perhaps better way. That is, don't believe the promises of politicians that use rosy rhetoric that the government is going to solve our problems. The corporations need us to be complicit with their agenda so they dress it up in leftist socialist rhetoric. They aren't honest as to the real intent. There are many examples of this. The healthcare issue is a prime example. It was largely written by the insurance industry (as I understand it). We are being deceived so they can create of a modern mercantile empire, or a corporate socialist system.

So what we want is decentralization. But not just any kind.. The kind where there is no cronyism involved. But I agree with you that the big corporations having too much political power is a real issue. I just don't think that any amendment is going to solve it since that would only amount to a promise from the same people doing it.

edit: the article in question is a perfect example. It's dressed up as protecting us from phone theft but can easily be used to implement tyranny to quell dissent of corporate controlled government.

News Comments > Crytek to Repair Reputation with "Really High Quality Games"
22. Re: Crytek to Repair Reputation with Aug 19, 2014, 13:09 LittleMe
 
The headline reminds me that talk is cheap.

It was Crysis 1 that tainted my opinion of them because the multiplayer was supported so poorly. Then they promised more with Warhead with the MP being separated from the single player game and again they failed to support it (and keep hackers out). The multiplayer had a lot of potential but it just wasn't finished and polished to perfection, imo.

They could have become a real competitor too DICE's Battlefield series, but... no. I'm thinking like any modern multiplayer game, where they absolutely require patching out the hacks and polishing gameplay to keep the player base thriving and interested.

Is that evidence admissible in court? There was no proper search warrant issued to search his place. I thought anything found on a unrelated search was not admissible.

Maybe he is a frequent Blues poster and after a few beers he forgot he was speaking in public on behalf of a company.

Any not just any company.. SOE is a division of Sony Computer Entertainment! I fear for his job. We must make sure he can keep wearing his robes of righteousness on the ivory balcony while staying employed there! He is of the true faith!

The sales pitch marketing-speak commentary is annoying and condescending. Talking to me as if to tell me what I should like while not telling me what I want to hear.

Well FWIW people on NFOHump are positive on it so far after a few hours of play. It may very well be a must-play for Risen/Gothic fans.

I want to play it but not for $50. They've priced themselves out of the market at the most important time. It might have sold very well at $20 or $30. All that said, I liked the trailer even though the game does look rough around the edges. After Gothic 3 buggy launch and Risen 2's shortcomings there's no way I'd blindly buy any of their games on good faith.

I've been watching a lot of Near Death Experience (NDE) videos on YT lately. I'm not 100% certain it's a true after-life reality but hopefully Robin is in such a heavenly place now. A recurring theme seems to be that those who suicide often have to repeat a life here until they 'get it right' but there are exceptions to that too. Either way, he'll be missed.
