The NYPD will give smartphones to its officers, and it looks like they’ll run Windows.

A good choice. A lot fewer apps and games to get distracted with.

Thats kind of why I love windows phone actually As someone that uses phone (shock) for calls and texting it works brilliantly and unlike most app-centric phones you actually get really nice audio quality, to the point I can tell what size room the other person is in. (if they are using a windows phone too).

All of the big apps are there anyway.

Except if you actually look at the statistics, men are only slightly more likely to be harassed in general, but women are more likely to be stalked and sexually harassed, which a quite a bit more severe than name calling.

Good thing you aren't a journalist.

I'm getting really tired of hearing "it happens to men too" bullshit - that doesn't make it OK. One wrong doesn't make another wrong OK. If that is an issue you care about then this is not the correct place for it.

I can read the statistics in the article I linked quite well. Men are more likely to be the recipient of online harassment (44% vs 37% for women). More likely to be physically threatened, more likely to be called names, more likely to be purposely embarrassed. I've been physically threatened as well as sexually harassed, and I'd prefer the latter every time. Neither would be better of course.

This is a correct place to talk about harassment of men, as much as it is the place to talk about harassment of women. Neither should happen, and the men should not be ignored. Equality can be scary to some I guess. Goes against that SJW agenda.

It's not the correct place, what you are doing is watering down the severity of this issue by throwing the attention elsewhere.

Who hasn't been harassed on the internet? I mean it`s happened to lots of us on this site. It's not difficult to poke someone online to make it happen. These people who are making a career of it are going to have to up the ante. Fake attacks will be next once the cash flow dries up from being a professional victim.

Also given men are more likely to be harassed than women (http://www.pewinternet.org/2014/10/22/online-harassment/), why is the story one sided again?

It all comes back to no ethics in journalism.

You mean this line?
Young women, those 18-24, experience certain severe types of harassment at disproportionately high levels: 26% of these young women have been stalked online, and 25% were the target of online sexual harassment. In addition, they do not escape the heightened rates of physical threats and sustained harassment common to their male peers and young people in general.

That, but also the graphs show it as well.

The comments in this thread are just appalling. No wonder the world is such a fucked up place.

The biggest cause of harm or death to a women by far is from a male, so maybe that's why people treat it seriously. There are some statistics you can go look up.

I'm not sure why but still my biggest reason for not getting this game (besides money) is that the Alien is walking. Now I know it's been awhile since I last saw Alien, but it just seems so unnatural especially of the game videos I have seen.

having played the game about 1/2 way, yes the alien is not good at all. it just walks around like a 2 year old inside a Halloween costume, making heaps of noise and bumping into objects(because it cant see out of the costume lol). You don't feel like you are being hunted by an alien, its more like trying to sneak around so you don't wake up the old man. The alien will never try to out smart you, or slowly crawl across the ceiling to sneak up on you because it's smarter than you and it knows that you are hold a weapon that can kill it.b It won't think ahead and set up an ambush. It's also inconsistent, sometimes it can hear you from far away and pin point you, and other times it can't detect you when you are close enough to lick it. Some hunter.

However it's not a bad game if you just treat it as a game, and space station is really nice to look at.

30fps? LOL I'd be disappointed with a game that is locked at 60fps. 120fps+ or GTFO.

30fps was a joke 15 years ago, so why is it becoming standard now?
120fps is where games become alive

Hiding under the desk simulator. It got boring really quick. Also the alien is a hopeless hunter, its noisy like a bull in a china shop, it never sneaks up on you, or lies in waiting, it doesn't even creep along walls. It like playing a game of hide and seek with a toddler in a Halloween alien costume, which they can't see out of properly. It just doesn't really feel like you do anything, and there kind of is no game here.

News Comments > DCS: Su-27 Announced
3. Re: DCS: Su-27 Announced Oct 6, 2014, 19:34 bigspender
 
If anyone has ever had any slight interest in planes of any kind, I highly recommend this "game/simulation".
I've been playing for about 2 years now, but I came from the Battlefield 2/3 crowd, because I got tired of constantly trying to get into a plane or helicopter only to be shot down a few minutes later. So it's nice to have a game where you are constantly in the plane. And it also has the best community of any game, period, since most people this attracts are generally more mature than your typical gamer.

Even if you are worried about a learning curve, since this is technically a simulator, it is a very rewarding experience, but with many guides on steam and youtube, you can be dropping bombs and missiles in 5-10 minutes. My suggestion is to get a friend to learn with, that's what I did, and it made learning and experimenting fun.

You will however benefit from having some kind analog input, even a cheap $20 joystick will be better than a keyboard, as the physics apparenlty close the real thing, so it would be like driving a car in real life with arrow keys, do-able, but tedious.

Do I understand that correctly, that the Flanker will be a free addition to DCS world, along with the Frogfoot? So if you install DCS world you'll have two free planes to fly?

DCS World actually has two planes for free already, the Su-25T attack jet, and a training (no weapons) version of the P-51D WWII fighter plane, called TF-51D.

The flanker pre-order is currently $7.99 but will be around $10 to buy if you get it after release, as is with the other planes in that category, such as the F-15C, A-10A, Su-25.

Or you can buy the Flaming Cliffs 3 pack, which includes 7 planes one of which is the Su-27(and it will be upgraded to the standards of this stand alone package once released).

Really great fun, and the cool thing about all of these flaming cliff series planes (whether you buy them in a pack or separate), is that they are quite similar in the way you control them in the game, so if you have played with the free Su-25T (which is actually one of the most versatile jets in the game) you can easily get a hang of the others.


Also, you might notice that the graphics in the trailer are very very nice. Well that is a directX 11 upgrade which is coming out in a month or so as well. (currently the game doesn't look quite this good).

As good as this looks, going by the history of Alien(s) games, you'd be wise to wait for reviews.

sorry to burst your bubble, but compared to what goes on in the world, there are NO 'important issues regarding sexuality and sexism in gaming'. it's a non-issue as others have stated. it's imbalanced towards males, but that in itself is balanced because your target audience is males. you might as well be crying about gratuitous hot chicks in beer commercials. it reflects REALITY - dudes like hot chicks and there is NOTHING wrong with that. and the slut-shaming is really ridiculous. if you've ever known a hot chick in your life, they LOVE to show off what they got, so that also is not unrealistic. there is no problem here other than bored netizens with too much time on their hands.

Wow your logic baffles me. Using the logic you've presented, the following statements must be true:

It's ok to be racist, as long as the footage is being shown to racist people.

Some people do bad things, so its OK for everyone else to do them too. At the very least is normal to do nothing about it.

If you can't tell the difference between Spiderman's pose vs spider womans, then you might want to get your autism checked out by a doctor.

I don't think you understand what autism really consists of. 'if you dont agree with me youre autistic' Good job being more offensive and ignorant than the thing you're criticizing.

Whether you agree with me or not doesn't matter. People with varying levels of autism have trouble reading and expressing emotions (among other things) - and if you have the inability to determine various subtle emotional differences from the two images, you could be a candidate.
