Haha, name me a South American country that respects human rights. And Russia isn't exactly a paragon of freedom and human rights.

Snowden's problem is that he isn;t a traitor, but 90% of the people who swear to uphold our Constitution ARE traitors, and they are ready to squash him like a bug to protect their power.

Example of Double Standards in International LAW

United States - Holds Asylum of a known CIA paid terrorist bomber Luis Pasada Carriles. Pasada was recruited by the CIA and BOMBED a cuban airliner, killing 76 innocent people in 1976.

Venezuela - Demands that the U.S. extradite Pasada for trial, but the U.S. refuses.

Venezuela said if Snowden were to reside in their country, they would only hand him over on the grounds that the U.S. hands over a known protected terrorists like Pasada that actually committed a real crime.

Look up history, the CIA and the U.S. government for YEARS subverted South American countries, going as far as installing dictators that went on killing rampages of their citizens. So I'd say the South American countries, at their core now, are highly resilient to illegal espionage by the U.S.

So that should give you a clue why South American countries, in the past, had governments that abused Human Rights.

Do you follow the international news much? All the governments in South America still have human rights abuse going on.

Brazil, while claiming to eradicate wage-slaves, has freed less than 2000 of the millions of them working on sugar plantations. Why? Because POLITICIANS. Police frequently torture people, and nothing is really done about it.

Venezuela? Yeah, a living paradise on earth. Chavez never once violated the human rights guarantees that HIS OWN FUCKING CONSTITUTION GURANTEED THE VENEZUELAN PEOPLE. Oh, wait. Yes he did, every damn day of his rule. Don't forget the awesomeness that is Caracas, a city where you are three times more likely to be murdered than in Cartel run Juarez Mexico. Number 6 in the world for muder rate baby, yeah!

Well that's two down, just 12 more to go until your generalization is correct.

How about instead of your useless sarcasm you give us an example of a wonderful human rights beacon in South America.

I'm not the one making generalizations about an entire continent.

Besides, it depends on your definition of "respects human rights" and the time period. I could probably point to examples in the histories of any country on the globe where they didn't "respect human rights".

But I guess I'll play your game... What about Uruguay since 1984 (30 years)?

No game. No need to be petty. I cannot stand up and proclaim the US is great at human rights. We clearly violate them when it suits us. Most countries do because politics and greed trump human rights every time.

Uruguay, in case you don't know, is big on child labor. We're not talking 10 or 15, we're talking 4 or 6 year olds working in mines with mercury, dynamite, etc. They are making "advancements" slowly, but at the rate they are moving this will continue basically forever. Most kids attend school AND work, but Uruguay plays games with the numbers and says "See? 90% of our children are in school!" Officially you need to be 13 to be employed there, but unofficially they don;t really give a shit.

And you don't need to believe me. You can think I have some agenda or another, whatever. But this information is publicly available and easily obtained from the Internet. News sources, human rights organizations, shit, even government releases.

My point is, it IS a broad generalization. Unfortunately, that generalization happens to be true, whether or not you or I like it.

Besides, it depends on your definition of "respects human rights" and the time period. I could probably point to examples in the histories of any country on the globe where they didn't "respect human rights".

Unfortunately, this is not some random period in history. It is right now and during the last decade.

PS - For those of you looking to "school me" because you think I am ignorant - I was a 4.0 college student all 3 times I went. I have studied history, acting, business, and IT. I know these things about South America because of research I have done during and after a class about modern South America. You can call me ignorant all you like, but you and I both know the truth.

And don't get me started on the CIA. Those guys have been royal cockups from the start. Let's put Castro in power! Whoops. Let's train Bin Laden and his Mujaheddin! Whoops. They are basically responsible for almost every terrorist act that has haunted us since WWII.

I suggest people read The Rise and Fall of the British Empire. You'll quickly realize that the US scrambled to assist and eventually take unwanted control over many of the declining colonial states that arose from European imperialism, particularly from our friends in the UK. The two examples you mention are symptomatic of pretty much how the UK (and the French, for that matter) handled colonialism up until the 1960's. The problems that exist today are largely because of those actions, they'd be far worse if the US hadn't stepped in out of necessity due to the Cold War (which Europe essentially begged for).

Seriously, read some history, people. I know it is en vogue to bash the imperial US, despite the fact that the British Empire held a quarter of the world's land and population less than a century ago. They also supported oil interests in Nigeria and royally screwed up Egypt, Iraq, etc., etc. France screwed up Vietnam, etc. The world was a mess before the US even got involved and would be much worse had it been left to anarchy (considering cannibalism was rampant in Africa until colonization, for example).

Is Snowden a traitor? He certainly committed treason - do the ends justify the means? It would be impossible for him to come back to the United States. However, turning again to history, emigres were common throughout the political age and are nothing new. There may come a time when he could return, and even afar he can be influential.

You can disagree with me, but I HAVE read history. A lot of it. And I'm telling you, the CIA is a string of fuckups all throughout history. I can't disagree that most nations that had colonies also fucked over the world. France, Spain, Portugal, Britain - they all exploited and destroyed their fair share.

Don't get me wrong, we have done some good things. Not lately, but in the not so distant past. We just can't expect the world to look at the good things and ignore the bad things. Or rather, we do expect that but shouldn't.

You mean those same South American countries where the CIA began coups and installed murderous, US friendly dictators like Pinnochet? And what the hell does the US know about human rights. All over the globe they've installed these same assholes all in the name of profit and US hegemony. The US isn't part of the problem, it IS the problem.

Here's a pretty comprehensive list of just CIA activities alone....

Killing Hope: U.S. Military and C.I.A. Interventions Since World War II

And btw, that's not hack work. It was vetted by guys like William Casey and all the info can be found in the Library of Congress under FOIA.

The idea of America really ended with Eisenhower leaving office. Can you imagine a sitting president today warning the populace against the dangers of the military-industrial complex? No, the real gangsterism started under Reagan. That's when we saw the shift with the war on the middle-class beginning and the looting of America began in earnest.

It's only now they're no longer pretending it isn't happening. They've realized the masses are too apathetic and self-absorbed to know and/or care. There will be no new Revolution this time around. Not unless it gets much, much worse, and the elites are too smart for that. They'll leave just enough to keep that from happening. And all those poor dumb sheeple will have missed their natural right to something better.

I am not saying the US is a paragon of freedom and human rights either. We are King Shit of the Bullshit pile, pretty much. Every goddamn politician talks up freedom and democracy while doing their damnedest to squash both.

And don't get me started on the CIA. Those guys have been royal cockups from the start. Let's put Castro in power! Whoops. Let's train Bin Laden and his Mujaheddin! Whoops. They are basically responsible for almost every terrorist act that has haunted us since WWII.

Its too late for the U.S. - it is a National Security State, there is no turning back, and it is a runaway train. Hell it doesn't even matter who the President is, they can lie about representing the people's interests and then do a complete 180 (hence why over 40% of the population don't even vote). They put Manning, the most important case in U.S. Modern History, in prison for telling the truth. Snowden would be waterboarded or tortured, which is illegal but its "ok" when the U.S. does crimes.

Most citizens believe he is a good person, but our failed bureaucracy for decades, before 9/11 even happened confirmed by former NSA Operations Division manager whistle blower William Binney, has lead to it being hell-bent on having enemies in every possible way. The U.S. and NATO even FUND and train extremists to continually prop up an enemy to fight.

Fortunately for Snowden he can live his life free in Russia or seek asylum in South American countries that respect Human Rights and International Law.

Hilarious how you provide nothing to back up your statements, and yet the facts laugh in your face at how wrong you are. 5400 rpm doesn't cut it. Sorry.

You typed a three line troll, it's not like there was much there to work with. The spindle rate of the drive has little correlation to the visuals, slow drives manage just fine with a cache and platter density is just as important, not to mention other factors. If you had talked about the APU instead you might have had a point but even then after seeing barely "next gen" footage of many upcoming games I don't really see how its detrimental to developers or gamers at the moment. This type of stuff matters a lot more down the road when developers are hitting the limits of the hardware but that's years away. For some perspective Rockstar managed GTA 5 with consoles having less than a gigabyte of memory, they now have 8GB. The limits of development these days are more related to budget than to hardware constraints.

Also just FYI most of the people buying a console at launch are core consumers, the casuals tend to come later with lower prices. I think the only exception to that in the past decade was the Wii. There's also many gamers here who own both a console and a gaming PC because the consoles get many exclusive games they deem worthwhile. The more you know!

And knowing is half the battle!

Bad choice of name, find something else. It says nothing about the game. I do, however, like the concept - we're all fans of games and films like Riddick, Event Horizion, System Shock, etc. The scale looks appropriate as well. Don't make it an MMORPG though. Do it in the style of NWN with public/private servers of up to 64 people, and editor, etc. The days of paying monthly fees or getting nickled and dimed with P2W games is over.

We will not change the name of the game cause it tell you nothing cause you don't know the full story and main ingame goals =) Hope later everything will be more clear. And about MMO, Yep it will be not a classical MMORPG it will&#65279; be more RPG with some online opportunities in it, like cooperate playing and PVP content, we need online to create unexpected situations in some moments.

Hahahaha

The first thing that I will do with my new PS4 is rip out that slow ass 5400rpm, 500GB drive and replace it with a hybrid or 7400rpm drive with a TB of space.

Wait...This is starting to sound suspiciously like a PC upgrade...

So those who are playing....is it better than a Bad Company 2.5? Cause I still think Bad Company is the best in the series. The destructo in that game was awesome. I wish that game wouldn't have died so quickly.

I am also waiting for a $5-$20 sale.

The destruction is definitely up from BF3 in some maps. One of the island maps lets you destroy most of the buildings completely. (Hurricane?) It's still not Bad Company level, which I don't understand. Most of those maps let you eventually level pretty much everything but the biggest of buildings.
