The rest of us are much more relaxed and open about sex, much more. Regardless, this is another useless clickbait article. If this guy thinks it's so viable to make games without violence then go fucking make them and see how they sell. Not every game is violent but there's a reason it's the niche-iest niche of a niche market.

One of the beautiful things about violent games is they're a great steam release valve. Had a shitty day? Come home and blow some virtual heads off over a few beers and you're suddenly a lot more relaxed. Maybe there's been so much violence in the history of the world because people didn't have that virtual out. While correlation does not mean causation, it's a pretty strange coincidence that as gaming has grown over the last 30 years that violent crime has gone down. Coincidence? If media really had that influence where was the generation of Bugs Bunny watchers dropping anvils on people's heads?

And lastly, as it applies to gender equality, the people up on that stage are there on merit. They're not just randomly picking white guys out of the audience to talk about the game. And the industry - here in NA and Europe - is made up mostly of white males and most of those games are bought by white males. So yeah it doesn't make any more sense to have a female on stage for the sake of being female then it would to have a dolphin because by this idiotic sophistry anything that's not on stage is obviously under-represented and discriminated against.

Well seeing as the target market for these games is probably 99.9% male I can't imagine too many would care, much less want to play a chick. I certainly have no desire to do so. 'I'm going to stab that fucker in the heart! Oh fooey I broke a nail.'

Also, if you've not seen last week tonight, it's so so funny. John Oliver goes off on FIFA.

The guy is great. Man, I can't believe these countries let FIFA get away with that scheisse. I loved his shot at Budweiser 'they sell a product they insist on calling beer' Lol!

I would want to know why the fuck I should suffer random people hogging any of my bandwidth...

And do they even have the right? Could people opt-out? What's the angle here? Can anyone access the wi-fi or only Comcast subscribers? What's the resulting health effects here? How much more electromagnetic radiation are they dumping into Houston with that?

Well they always start second week of July. However I did see a post that because of their work with the Dota 2 tourney they may be bumping up the sale a bit early this year. Guess we'll know for certain in the next 2 or 3 weeks.

Yes Danielle Riendeau... you feel everyone everywhere needs to pander to the liberal whim of ethnic equality representation.

So you'd certainly agree that the Han Chinese, Hindustani, Arabs and Bengalis need to be first and foremost represented in the future in everything, everywhere if it involves a "world audience appreciation" since they far outnumber every other ethnicity in the world we live in.


On the other hand, I think it's worth pointing out that while gaming continues to rapidly gain playership among women, minorities, and LGBTs, E3 continues to market to the white straight male.

And what's the target audience? In NA and Europe - dunno about the rest of the world - at least 80% of the gamers must be white males - and there's no way that's going to change that much in the foreseeable future. In Asia you can bet dollars to donuts that their marketing campaigns are very different.

Go to any industry dominated by woman or product or service used generally by women and you're not going to see many male speakers either. So it that discrimination or a simple reflection of the reality of the marketplace? This sort of Equal Opportunity bullshit is wrong. Why have a woman speak for the sake of it being a woman if she's got nothing relevant to say on the subject matter. It'd be the same as if I went to tampon or a bra convention to speak to the women there about those products when I know sweet FA about them.

I'm digging the VCR era tech used, it's all about striking that nostalgia nerve just right.

Yeah, did you see the interview where they were covering all the analogue equipment and why they went that way? It's pretty neato keen.

Hey guys, honest question. I cant for the life of me enjoy this game because i dont see the point of getting better gear....just to get better gear? And i really really do love ARPG's, but D3 it just seems so pointless to me? Can you guys share your experience with me on why you play this as opposed to (any) other ARPG's?

Yeah, ARPGs have worn thin for me. Just not into grinding on the hamster wheel anymore. When Diablo came out it was great. D2? Enh not so much. D3? I was pretty meh about it. Played through it doubt I'll go back to it again. Doubt I'll even bother with the expansion - even at a deep discount, well maybe for $5.

Maybe it's just getting older but I find I'm much more picky about what I buy and play now. And the only thing that I'm really still loving are CPRGs. I need some story, some narrative, some character interaction. Is that what Elite/Star Citizen/No Man's Sky are going to be about? Fight/trade/explore but with no real stories? That gets old fast. Maybe you're just getting older too. Grinding for the sake of grinding is actually pretty pointless. Oh, 1 hour later and I found a marginally better item. Whoopdee-frickin'-doo.

Has been a great E3 so far. Lots of cool announcements. I nerdgasmed more times than I can count yesterday lol. Battlefront, No Man's Sky, Far Cry 4, Magicka 2, AS: Unity (I loved exploring renaissance italy in AS 2, so I hope it has some of that magic). Battlefield: Hardline (though I doubt it'll beat Pay Day 2 for heist fun), Mirror's Edge 2, Dragon Age: Inquisition, hell even Sims 4 (my SO has yet to stop squee'ing!)

Edit: in the media section... Mark Hamill is the best Joker ever. If you disagree you are wrong mofo!

Where was the news on No Man's Sky. I'm desperate to see more of that.

Edit: NM found it on the Youtubes.

Oh baby, forget Star Shitizen and all that noise, this is going to kick-ass like Sea-Bass.

E3 2014: Remastered Grim Fandango heading to PS4, Vita

While that's good to hear, why not the PC?!

And you can't play the original because...

It doesn't work well with new systems. I still have my original disc but I'd happily buy it again if it was remastered for the PC.

Why should the industry change their methods when the consumers themselves make those methods profitable and successful?

Because there are plenty of less than scrupulous people out there who have no problem ripping off and hurting people for a fast buck. And since they won't do the right thing themselves they must be made to. Your idea of laissez-faire doesn't work. Never has, never will. Like everything else in this world extremes at either end of the spectrum don't work. It has to fall somewhere in the middle.

As a married homeowner, it cracks me up that people pay $60 to run virtual errands and enjoy it too.

No, you're paying for the visceral thrill of shooting and beating people to death who piss you off. Whereas that behavior is somewhat frowned upon IRL. Just a bit.
