How is one objective about personal taste? It's like me reviewing blended varietals when I prefer single vineyard wines.
By disclosing that it's a personal preference. This isn't hard, good reviewers like the ones in say C&D or Motortrend do it all the time.

Would you boycott the Star Wars X-Wing / Tie Fighter games because they require a joystick? After they were re-released on cd in the late 90s they needed a stick. Not recommended - required.
Really? Because I've still got my floppy versions of the game, and played them all with a keyboard an mouse.

Yeah I haven't bought anything either. I have everything I want right now, and the stuff I do want isn't out to buy yet--or isn't released for another few months.

Might as well add Chess as an Olympic sport next.
Imagine all the Olympic Call of Duty players, getting pumped on Mountain Dew and Doritos
Chess is already recognized as an olympic sport, just a FYI.

And here I was expecting Windows 8 to be listed in the article...
But they didn't kill Win8, if anything they tried to salvage it. Sometimes though the stupid is just too much from them, if they'd released Win8 with both the classic shell and the modern UI they wouldn't have had a problem at all.

Yeah, 20 US, that's like 95 CDN thanks to that asshole Harper.
Don't worry, under Chretien it was 480 Cdn. I'm old enough to remember Chretien and the worries that we were going to see 0.50:1USD in a couple of years.

What facts, you dumbass? Lots of Nazi sympathizers and collaborators all over Europe used the smokescreen of "anti-communism" to hide their beliefs, and that definitely includes people in Poland. Your link doesn't prove a thing.

Besides, what do you care if the makers of the game have Neo-Nazi beliefs? All you care about is "freedom of speech," right?
You've just successfully made a statement based on supposition, and attempted to make it a fact. Brilliant, perhaps next you'll tell us that the sky is green.

P.s. you were the one to bring up the imaginary neo-nazi beliefs.

A game made by Neo-Nazi supporters in which the only aim is to murder innocent civilians is fucked up, period.
Oh look, someone bought into the twitter-tublr tripe and thinks that it's factually correct. Fuck the facts.

Beamer wrote on Dec 17, 2014, 13:58:

Going to that guy's Twitter page, his problem seems to be about hatespeech more than violence. He thinks that the developer is a hate organization.
That guy is the writer for femnist frequency, just a FYI.

Yes, mysterious people not at all in this thread.
Even scanning that Community link, which is moving too quickly, I don't see anyone saying "this shouldn't be allowed to be made." People are saying it shouldn't be released because it will cause a lot of trouble. But no one is demanding it not be made. They're saying the developers should think better about it.

There may be people saying otherwise, but not in the first three pages, and I'm not going deeper than that.

You mean like the guy who writes AS's crap? Well that mouth doesn't get any bigger right. Or the stuff floating around in gghazi the last two days. But that might be considered a "small minority" I suppose. Or the ones on twitter yesterday, and are now screaming at the top of their keyboards. So yeah there are people out there wanting to ban the game, among those who said "we don't want to ban games."

I hope Valve and Destructive Creations both have good lawyers. When the next Dustin Klebold decides to go open loop, and they discover that he might have been a fanatic of this game....whoaboy.

Yeah because heaven forbid we hold an individual responsible for their actions right, after all we know the game made them do it. How's it going today Jack Thompson?

And, again, no one is saying "it shouldn't exist." We're saying that games would be stronger without having this weak spot to pick at and that the developers are creating it solely to profit off of the controversy and are kind of dicks for doing it at the expense of games as a whole.
Except the SJW's who are coming right out saying "it shouldn't exist" and want to ban games like GTA. This is of course them coming out months ago saying "we're not trying to ban games." So yeah, there are people out there saying they want to ban games, they want to ban games like this and GTA, and I'll hazard a guess that they also want to ban anything that doesn't fit with their narrow world view on what's "correct in their eyes."

I find it funny at the number of people throwing a hissy fit now that it's back on. The SJW comments in the discussion thread on it are hilarious, especially all the rank 0 private accounts.

I haven't gone back to it yet, but it appeared as though the graphic options were recently patched into FFXIII.

Yeah it was patched in on the 11th.

There is consensual implied sex in the game, and the ability to kill anyone who isn't in the storyline. But it takes a really creepy person going out of their way to combine those two into a sex crime.

I think what you're looking for is that these people are mentally unwell, perhaps sociopaths or psychopaths and should get immediate psychiatric help with an obvious problem. A normal person, can figure out what is reality and fantasy. My parents let me watch violent movies the day I said to them "violent movies, are adult cartoons" at the age of 5, because I'd already been able to draw the distinction between reality and fantasy.

Has someone played the FFXIII port on the PC? Is it worth playing the port over the PS3 version? (all details about the story being naf or great etc notwithstanding. I'm purely talking port.)
Never played the PS3 version, but the PC port is pretty good. If you owned an original PC-CD FFVII or VIII copy, everything is pretty much like that. Graphic options, non-rebinding of keys at first, all that jazz. Think it was the 1.02 patch for VII that added in rebinding.

I don't think losing the ability to hire prostitutes would actually hurt the game in any way. Especially since you get nothing out of it nowadays anyway.
Facts of life and reality hurt. Quick, remove it from the game!

I just don't get this argument, though.
One guy wrote the review, an entirely different guy wrote the Op/Ed.
A year passed between them, which is a considerable amount of time for opinions to be re-evaluated, anyway.
And it's possible for a game to be incredibly fun to play yet also have some absolutely terrible plot points that make people cringe.

Does everyone writing for a site have to share the same opinion?
Can opinions not change over time?
And can something bad in an otherwise great game not necessarily make the game not worth playing?

According to SJW's yes. An entire group is guilty of the actions of a few individuals no matter what, even if there is no direct evidence--and if they work for them, the entire business/organization/etc is guilty of it. Notable examples from the last year: Mozilla, Gamergate.

So yep, Polygon has a serious misandry problem. I believe they need to take serious corrective steps to fix it.

Oh...OH...OOOOOOH.

Where was polygon last year? That's right, giving it a 9.5/10. Fucking clickbait. Apparently Polygon has a serious misandry problem, what can Polygon do to correct this?

Sure, but do you HAVE to hand them the password? If there's no pw on the phone, like in this case (MORON ALERT), then yeah, why shouldn't they search the phone. They search your wallet when they arrest you, I don't see why an unprotected phone would be different.

SCOTUS ruled that you do not have to hand over the password to your phone. (but in Fourt/Fifth Amendment related funsies, if your phone is locked with Biometric data, you CAN be forced to unlock it, because it becomes part of who you are versus what you know. )

It doesn't look like the Canadian SC made a ruling on the password part?


Also... "We did it were the jewelry at nigga burrrrrrrrrrr,"

Do you speak a different form of English in Canada? I can't for the life of me understand what the fuck this is supposed to mean.
Passwords have already been covered previously by the SCC here, warrant required. For a period no warrant required, but really this is an extension of what's already case law here anyway.

But as for different form of english in Canada? Yes, note that centre is the correct spelling. But Toronto being the shithole that it is, has started becoming heavily ghettoized in parts much like Detroit, 15 years ago even the bad areas of Toronto you could walk through without a problem, or only a small problem. These days you're likely to be shot, stabbed, or have the shit kicked out of you.
