Nobody would be complaining if they had made clear in the beginning that it was 6 vs 6. Nobody would be complaining if the player limit was 6 vs 6 and there weren't more than twice that number of AI on the field.

Bullshit no one would be complaining, everyone would have just been complaining sooner because it has nothing to do with expectations, it's because "more = better" is the pervasive mentality.

And I have yet to see a BF4 map where 64 players is too much. Lockdown is pushing it, but it's nowhere near as bad as Metro was with even 32 players in anything but Rush mode.

Not sure if troll.

Yes, yes you are.

And every olympics this happens. Not just in Russia. And they also force out the homeless and poor.

You should read up what Rio is doing to people in the favelas near the stadium sites. Warning: It's not pretty.


Yeah, Brazil puts on a nice face for tourists, but I talk to a couple of people that live there and they say it is pretty damn scary. These are guys that live in the "good" section of Rio. The police basically do whatever the hell they feel like, the politicians control everything, and the criminals are hard to distinguish from anybody else.

I so want to go to Rock in Rio, but all of the stories I have heard from people that went and people that live there just put me off.

I remember the Olympics being a big deal when I was a a kid. Now it's a big deal only if you are into watching them, and the rest of us barely know when they are happening anymore.

They seem like they are happening more frequently now because back in 94 they started having the summer and winter portions every two years, alternating. It used to be that they were both in the same year before that. (92 Olympics was Winter 92 and Summer 92, Then Winter was in 94 and Summer was in 96)

More players is not inherently better. In fact 64 is too much in a lot of Battlefield maps. If they think 6v6 works best with the way they've designed the game, you could at least wait to try it out before you start bashing it for no reason. If every player in Battlefield had their own 2-story robot that could also act autonomously, it'd be a huge clusterfuck; gameplay and network connectivity both would be completely unmanageable. They would have zero destructibility at the very least.

Nobody would be complaining if they had made clear in the beginning that it was 6 vs 6. Nobody would be complaining if the player limit was 6 vs 6 and there weren't more than twice that number of AI on the field.

I don't know. Some people genuinely like it. The guys at Penny Arcade say it's great. Of course, their taste in games is not mine, and I usually don't like a lot of the games that they do.

The first previews looked epic. Huge battles with foot soldiers and mechs. Then we find out that 90% of the battlefield was AI. What? Look at videos from BF4. Huge battlefields with foot soldiers and vehicles blasting away and ALL of them are players.

Maybe it will be fun, but I won't pay a dime for it unless I get to try it first.

Thought it was actually cool that Flea admitted what many haven't, over the years...


Guitars and Drums (pre)recorded. Vocals live. Hmmm. Its a shame that it wasnt the other way around. Anthony has got to be one of the shittiest successful frontman vocalists alive. His recorded stuff is pretty good, but man does he suck live. He cant hold a note to save his life...

I've often heard that about him. But then again, what singer can? Other than Maynard Keenan, I haven't heard a singer that sounds as good live as they do on the studio albums. Scott Weiland sounded pretty good.

Bruce Dickinson can sing as well if not better live than in the studio, Y'all. And he can still do it today at the age of 55.

While running full tilt across the stage, jumping monitors, and waving the union jack. The guy has lungs of iron.

I just wish the physical copies would start coming on blue-rays.

Bah, they should be on SD cards/flash drives. I'd also say most PC gamers let alone users don't have a blu ray drive. I've only just now been tempted to get one for my main PC since they're under $100.

Because churning out a million BD discs is cost effective, and shelling out for 32GB SD cards for every copy of the game is something someone who didn't stop to think for 1/2 a second would come up with.

Seeing as it's an essential service, its should be nationalized everywhere. It's too important to be left in the hands of self-serving big business.

You're right, it's much better in the hands of self serving big government, because they never screw anything up.

Dear T-Mobile; Do you know how to "break up the duopoly?" ACTUALLY BUILD THE AWESOME NETWORK YOU HAVE BEEN CROWING ABOUT FOR YEARS. Derp. Yes, T-Mob is great in major metropolitan areas. Once you leave those areas you might as well just turn off your phone for all the service you will receive.

Signed,
Speaking from experience, went back to Verizon.

If I can try the beta and it ends up being a lot of fun, then I might buy it. Otherwise the 6 to a side thing is a real turn-off.

Re: Voice commands

Curious tonight, so I plugged in the cheap mic/earpiece that came with the PS4 and lo and behold the voice commands work if you have that plugged in.

Wow, I thought. Cool.

Then I unplugged it and will probably never use voice commands again.

/deleted - went on a big long spin - no one cares.

Make things legal, let people take whatever they want, but it will take a TON of legislation to deal with the destruction that it causes. No one cares if shit bird drug addict does xyz to themselves, but they disrupt A LOT a long the way and the destruction is a large swath far and wide.....we will pay for it as a whole - the money for the "drug war" will just be money for the "fix me war".....

I don't have the answers. I have great solutions that no one likes. There will be a time when people will say enough is enough.....we will have enough victims that they will be loud one day....until then, turds will be turds and continue to be turds cause jail is not big deal.

The "1%" problem is growing...

It's not worth it.
The libertarian "it should be legal, what, because some people may have an issue it isn't?" argument is an idiotic one. It doesn't actually address why something should be legal, just why it shouldn't be illegal.

And it runs into huge flaws because it's only used for something that individual wants to be legal. You can easily find things illegal that they happily agree shouldn't be legal, without them realizing the logic they're applying is solely personal opinion.

You're right, it's not worth discussing with someone who is closed off to facts. No matter what facts are portrayed, there is a century of media brainwashing to overcome that some people just can't get over.

Sure. If you let it, almost anything can fuck up your life. But you know whose problem that is? YOURS. Making things illegal doesn't change that, it just makes problems for other people.

The problem is that YOUR problem becomes MY PROBLEM then infringes on my FREEDOMS and LIBERTIES, per definition. I just don't understand the idea of "well just open up everything for everyone" - people can't even handle what is legal, and you want to open up Pandora's box to a gamut of garbage......

But that's the Chicken Little argument people use for EVERYTHING. OMG, if people are allowed to carry guns there will be blood running in the streets! Hasn't happened. OMG, if the assault weapon ban runs out murders will skyrocket! Murder rates actually dropped. OMG, if we legalize drugs EVRERYONE will use them and the country will go to hell. None of the countries that have decriminalized drugs have shown this to be true. There's a slight increase during the first couple of months, and then a sharp drop in usage.

HIV, street crimes, drug related deaths and usage all dropped by almost half when Portugal decriminalized drugs. The rate of people seeking treatment for drug addiction rose by over 50%. That means less people on drugs and more people seeking help for the addictions they have.

I don't understand the "people can't even handle what is legal" argument. Sure, people the police deal with. Not everyone. Not even most people. I have many guns, I have never killed or shot anybody. I drink alcohol, I've never driven drunk or become an alcoholic. (Which I know about first hand since my father has been one since before I was born.) You cannot punish the many for the problems of the few.

And yes, when people with problems effect other people, then they are infringing on other peoples' rights. And then YOU, as an officer of the law, arrest them for their stupidity. Same way it works now. Some crazy idiot runs down the street naked waving a shotgun they get arrested; Drunk, stoned, high on crack, it's the same thing. Except maybe if drugs were legal we wouldn't let that asshole back on the streets so that we can find his dealer, then use the dealer to find his source, etc. And maybe since the prison population would have a sharp decline, we could stop letting murders and rapists out to jail non-violent offenders.
