That is the EXACT argument they make. Same in law enforcement. I was in a course with a girl who couldn't do a push up.......not sure I need to say much more....
Want something else to tick you off? In Canada for policing men are required to do 30 pushups and women 10 for certification in FIT and getting hired. They're only required to do 3 pullups, we need to do a minimum of 15. Run 1 mile in 9-13 minutes? Not so for women, theirs is 13-17 minutes. Equality!

We require more fire. It's the only way to purge the clickbait scum.

My main complaint with Tropico 5 is the military are brain dead, I've had a standing military of 45, and they got wiped out by two squads of enemy troops because mine kept running around, and around the block.

Why is it the Americas (north and south) are so damn behind Europe and Asia on this?

Edit: Scratch that I know why all too well.
Hell you're behind Canada. The slowest speed you can really get up here if you're able to get it is 6/1 DSL, but your average broadband is now 10/1, with most people having somewhere between 15/1 to 50/1 where they can get it. And you know why, because the FCC killed competition when they said that incumbents no longer had to sell to third-party isp's.

Rogers, Bell, Cogeco, Telus all had the same monopoly up here for years until the government said enough.

...themore I play...the more I like it...I feel dirty....
It is a fun game without a doubt and the audio logs make it all the more interesting.

Funny that at 8am I'm actually having problems logging into uplay, only took me 4 attempts. Oh and if there is *one* thing that pisses me off to no end is that it refuses to accept my settings so it will run in full screen. Not windowed.

5hrs of gameplay and I'm enjoying it quite a bit. Not seeing anything that annoys me or pisses me off either, it's fun. Haven't even gotten out of the 2nd act yet having fun screwing around just doing whatever I feel like. Though the lag/stutter bug needs to get fixed, on the 14.6's I'm getting a solid 40-50fps on a 7950 w/boost, on a amd-6300 on ultra settings. But the sucker does eat memory, sitting at 5.2GB/8GB in use.

Fine why? There's more developers taking it on these days. Check back a few pages on /r/pcmasterrace there was an update on it.

PhysX does work universally, you just have to do it in the CPU with AMD, but it works. I've done it. It only works on nVidia hardware because it's their technology, and they can dictate who gets to use it. I'm sure that even if nVidia offered to license it out, AMD wouldn't pay the fees, and so we'd still be in the same place we are now.

Since then, I think they may have changed the drivers so you can't do that anymore, but that could just be to alleviate any responsibility from people breaking their systems and then trying to blame nVidia or something, but I won't speculate, unlike what some seem to want to do in this thread...
Well except it doesn't work universally. If it worked universally then I could slap a 520GT in my machine and let it do the physx calculations, but I can't. The reason? Because nvidia deliberately crippled their drivers, going as far as reversing gravity and introducing timebombs to slow users machines down to a crawl. If you had both a amd and nvidia card.

So for those that were wondering whether or not that trick worked on the EU key? Yep. Got my key from GMG, and it worked fine on my NA Uplay account. But GMG sure fucked up the release time. Aussies are just getting theirs now almost 18 hours later, and I'm still waiting on my season pass key. And no one got it at midnight except west coasters.

You mean "round corners" that samsung had before apple? This could very much bite apple if they want a retrial, just think how much they'll be frothing in the mouth if they loose this time.

He's also a bit incorrect in a few spots...one in particular is the comment about how you aren't alerted about deaths on the island due to a deficit. You still get popups about the deaths (lack of medical coverage, starvation) in the PIP popups. Matter of fact, I do believe anything that occurs on my island that is pertinent to my attention needs is shown in that little window, all without having to open the almanac, albeit I still do that out of habit anyways.
One of the things I do like now is that protests are actually informative, and you can simply pay the protesters off.

Only hit the second mission but so far I like it, getting used to the whole change in production/recon makes it a bit more intersting as well. Also noticed that mines aren't static, if you discover a mine, reload and rediscover it you can get something else.

Some bugs, such as it reverting colour/brightness controls every time it starts. I've got my brightness/colour controls set low and lower on my monitor because of photophobia protip: never get a head injury. So I get tired quickly while playing and it gives me a massive headache. But the jokes are quite good.

Oh and swiss bank account? Now useful! Required to upgrade your dynasty.
