My point was that one man's decision to stand up in front of a court, a kangaroo court if there ever was one, and have his say changed the course of history for one nation more than anything anyone ever before him did. In today's day and age of self gratification, self protection, self esteem and ME ME ME culture, what is the ultimate sign of protest? A selfless sacrifice. I dont know, thats just me. I would follow a man like that. One who runs away? Dunno about that....

Don't get me wrong. I dont blame him either. But history has shown that those who are willing to stand up for what they believe in, no matter the consequence, are the ones who are vindicated in the end.

Nelson Mandela spent 20 years in prison. Ive visited the prison and his prison cell. He wrote an entire book on nothing but empty matchboxes, he was supposed to have no outside contact but somehow he found a way. He could have taken the easier path. Exile. But then would apartheid still be alive today, instead of something that we relegated to the history books?

This is just one recent example. There are countless others.

I would say that he 'mostly' did the right thing. He did everything 'right' except one thing. He should have never have left the US. Basically thats the main argument and sticking point of anyone who believes him to be a traitor. Using the Guardian and foreign journalists to expose the dealings at NSA was definitely the right move, but leaving the States makes him look guilty to the masses of gullible sheep that drink the Kool Aid.

CCG, haha. Games aren't real (neither is what he believes in). So no matter what, he shouldn't have any problems with any game. Deluded, silly, infantile people.

I'm curious by what you mean by "what he believes in" and how his review would give you the impression that he's "Deluded", "Silly", or "infantile" ie annoying and childish : very silly in a way that is not appropriate or polite. I didn't get that impression from the review.

I think he is refering to the fact that CCG reviewers believe in a story about a man who was also a God, or rather the son of a God, born of a virgin, walking dead resurection and all of that not entirely original stuff. (The Ancient Egyptians believed in a very similar Osiris 'myth') I agree its not very polite, but I dont think its inappropriate. Freedom of speech and all that.

I know what you mean, I asked for a refund of 180 bucks because Arena Commander had a completely different flight model than what was promised from day 1. I have a bad feeling this is Duke Nukem Forever v2.

This is an interesting post. A backer who asked for his money back (very few of those around). Could you clarify what exactly is wrong with the DFM? Im not trying to troll or anything, Im merely interested in how the end result differs from what was promised?

Looks like Luke is getting a beard for the trilogy. And Hamill trimmed down nicely...

Must be really weird to go back to the role you're most known for, decades later...


Damn, did they really need that Mickey Mouse promo shot...Ugh...

Wonder if they asked Andreesen if he'd like to be the guy that throws the switch when Snowden's in the chair. If he'd like to be the guy that actually kills Snowden for POTENTIALLY hurting his bottom line. I mean, he wants him to die for it, since that's the punishment for being convicted of being a traitor. Maybe he'd like to physically carry out the punishment he apparently thinks is appropriate.

What are you on about? Since when have politicians (or men of influence in this case) ever had to deal with the dirty work? Or the guilt for that matter??

Yup. Very excited for this. Been ages since I played a 'new' decent RPG. Hell, Skyrim is RPG (extra)lite compared to this...

What does the tinfoil hat comment mean? We have indisputable evidence of widescale surveillance across several different communication mediums. We're well beyond people being paranoid now. The government doesn't care about your gmail or pornhub activity but guess what? They will collect the info anyway in case it can be useful in the future. If there is no value to private data then they wouldn't bother going to such extremes to collect it.

I think its a worthy effort to make it as difficult as possible and a campaign that helps the average person and makes them more aware is exactly what is needed.

I agree with everything you said. The problem is that the US government or rather the NSA will never give up on its surveilance methods. They might say that they have changed their ways, they might even vote legislation declaring it to be illegal, but none of that will matter. Its naive to think that a superpower (some might even call it the last superpower) would give up a tool as profoundly powerful in today's internet age.

Yeah, I have a feeling by the time they release the game all the beta players will have a huge advantage over us newbies. Still undecided on whether to play MP or SP. Will the multiplayer portion be subscription based or what?
