Gorgeous. Not sure if this was the PC version, as it doesn't look as good as some of the screenshots I've seen. Might've been the bone version.


It's a console version, it's 30FPS.

Pretty weak facial animations. Is everyone in this game made of stone or something?
Console, animations are clipped to save on processing power.

Looks damned good though.

G2A has always been of nebulous legality anyway hasn't it?
There's nothing wrong with G2A. The problem in most cases comes from marketplace(individuals selling) keys which are different from G2A keys.

Yeah I've got the originals on disc still. I'll just wait until it goes on sale to snag it.

I bought it off GMG and cannot gift the SA copy.

The key code for it is the same as the GTA5 GMG code, so I'm not giving the code to someone so they can hijack GTA5 as well, but adding the code to steam just gives "You already own this game. Click to install"
It's not the same key, keys from GMG haven't been released yet. If they had given you the key, it would show up under your "games" tab. Which it doesn't show.

Yeah said shoveling bit and plows repeatedly being filled back in by plows is now the reason why I own a snowblower. I don't have much to do, but last year after we had two blizzards in a month. And snow was repeatedly filled back in first 6" of crap, then 6" of packed crap, then 6" of slush-ice-crap, I had enough.

Sure there was a court case here in Ontario that said that cities were now responsible for clean sidewalks, and at most they could fine you via bylaws. But since they never actually come along and do my street, and most of the people that live around here are elderly. Last thing I'd like to see is them dropping dead trying to shovel that crap.

Looks like seagate is going the way of shit again. They were like that in the 90's when they were on the verge of going bankrupt. Later just after the dotcom crash as well, when they gutted their warranties to a year. Though I'm pretty sure their financial forecasts have them doing pretty good now, it looks like it's a way to turn a larger profit.

Beamer wrote on Jan 16, 2015, 18:32:
Can you link to Anita saying this?
In a round about way sure. Or perhaps this.

Oh I also like this little infograph.


As for the "CP," as you apparently have a convenient acronym created, you're wholly misreading me.
1) I didn't say I'm relying on other people. You accused me of being very familiar with the boards. I said I am not, then posted a link to the 8chan board index and pointed out a few pedophile boards. I don't see how doing that, clearly original investigation done at your demand, is relying on anyone else
2) I said it isn't legally child porn, but it's sexually suggestive images of 8 year olds. The repeated defense is that this is legal. And it is. But that doesn't mean 8chan doesn't have a serious pedophile community/problem
3) And that stuff is NOT removed. Hotwheels repeatedly says it's free speech. He defends sexually suggestive photos of 8 year olds along with discussions of molesting them as ok on his site because it's free speech. Wonderful man, Hotwheels, to foster these activities
4) Actually, he didn't break Canadian law. Good to see you're a Canadian attorney


And now you're throwing out uncited "who raped their dog," which really is amazing. Amazing. You're a wonderful human being. You should be proud.

Convenient? You mean an acronym that anyone who's been on the internet for the last 25 years has used. Well I guess that's news to everyone else out there.

1) I didn't accuse you, I made a statement. That's the difference, of course said pedophile boards don't break the rules either.
2) Sexually suggestive in the US is not illegal, in Canada it is. It doesn't have any more of a pedophile problem then reddit, twitter, or facebook does. All of those sites are also havens for pedophiles but I don't see you up in arms over it either.
3) And stuff that is illegal is removed. The above is not illegal, thus isn't removed.
4) Actually he did break Canadian law. Would you like me to get the definitions from the criminal code and show them to you? Oh never mind, here you go. So yeah, he broke canadian law.

I guess the logs from their own IRC aren't enough. How's that again?

Jack Thompson: tried to pass legislation to ban games
Anita Sarkeesian: asks that people make more diverse characters in games



Really? I guess that's why she and her co-writer have come out saying that "violent video games effect society" and "we need to control them" right? After all that's not jack thompson like at all.

Beamer wrote on Jan 16, 2015, 14:47:

Mashiki, I do not use the boards. Like, I'd imagine, most on this site, Chan Culture is really weird to me and I have no interest in being part of it. 4chan, 8chan, whatever other chan, just not something that's fun, or even followable, to me.
But you can go to 8chan's board list via google and see things like:
/younglove/ - Pedophilia Discussion - 13803 posts
/bl/ - boylovers - 1938 posts
/nnmodels/ - young models and jailbait - 1735 posts
/hebe/ girls, 22553 posts

...

Pedo-Dan" is hysterical. He downloaded it and blurred it to prove to people unwilling to go there what is there. Prior to him doing that GG was adamant it wasn't child porn. Once he did it they were adamant it was. But it came right from 8chan. Their "gotcha" would seem to admit 8chan is full of pedophilia, no?
So in other words, you're going off what someone else is saying. When in fact CP is removed from the boards, as quickly and reasonable as possible under the law. Of course if you have a problem with discussions--then you're simply walking into "thought crime" territory.

Oh as for pedo-dan, you know why? Because he broke the law here in Canada. What he did, not only broke provincial laws, but federal laws. The content however is not illegal in the US where the servers are hosted. That makes dan a pedo, it's not hard. Welcome to a world where "laws change when you cross a border." So yep, enjoy that pedophile in your midst. Oh and don't forget srbutts who raped their dog, and apparently is a pedophile as well. Or several of the others, on that nice side of the isle who abused animals, and are meth addicts.

FYI for anyone curious, ABC has been censoring comments calling this yellow journalism out.

8chan may be part of pedobear's hangouts, but that doesn't automatically invalidate the crowing that some anti-GGers did about planting kiddie porn to help get the site shut down.

Edit: GG is basically done for me. I learned what I needed to. Namely that you couldn't pay me enough to get involved with the incestuous, ego-driven, socially malformed, bitter-with-axe-to-grind game industry, especially the "journalism" side and the indie end of the pool.

Oh and I also learned that there are mean people who say mean things on the internet so I should give people money. Apparently.
I'm sure that these same people who say that 8chan is pedobears hangout, also line right up to cry about twitter, facebook, and reddit. All three of those are havens for pedophiles, with pedophilia having been traded out in the open on all three sites. Oooooohhhhhhhhh...right...it's because 8chan has a /gamergate/ board...how silly of me, and you.

People come and go, but taking a break is easier. On the otherside, there was a massive red-pill even from this broadcast along with the "pc master race" equals nazism...so stop using it. Said PC(Politically Correct) Gamer. For me, I'm effectively retired now so I can play the world's greatest MMO all day long.

I wonder how long before the anti-gg guys will figure out that Anita is Jack Thompson 2.0. Especially with the latest push of "games create violence" BS...especially in that ABC broadcast. Or how about MacIntosh's(aka the co-writer of FF) "#jesuischarlie" = #whitelivesmatter.

You can debate whether 8chan is actually even a part of gamergate, but there really isn't much debate over whether it's a pretty big site for pedophilia.
Well there' beamer, since you use the boards so often. I'm sure you report actual pedophilia right? After all, it wasn't like pedo-dan there who downloaded it, made an image of it, then uploaded it. Breaking 4 different laws here in Canada.

Not only do Gamergate assholes attack someone for reporting child pornography on 8-chan, they go after the CHILDREN, friends and neighbors of the guy for daring to report child pornography on 8-chan


Pedo-Dan, Pedo-Dan, does whatever a pedo can.

Steam has turned into the equivalent of Apple for indie developers. Valve has WAY too many restrictions on joining their network, the least of which Valve gets a hefty cut of every game sold.

Rumors floating around is steam is looking to junk greenlight so yeah, I guess we'll see on that. But Valve getting a heafty cut of every game sold? Hardly, they're one of if not the lowest in terms of cuts on every game sold in all the distribution services. Steam is around 25-30% on each sale, the stuff the circle I worked for loses 45% of each sale to DLsite(the more you charge the less they take, the less you charge the more they take). Desura is in $500 increments, they take 30% of that. Meaning you get zip from Desura until you have $500 in sales.
