Fighting for social justice is great. Im all for it. However fighting to limit and censor free speech and expression NO MATTER THE REASON is wrong.

If you want to spew hate speech in your game/book/movie/art go right ahead. Why would I want to censor you, when I can simply laugh at you and call you a dumb fucking bigot after youve had your say.

This is what Im saying, Sarkesian is only part of it. I have nothing against her spreading her message but I don't have to like being told how and what to think. No one does.

The tide of history, is not on your side.

The "tide of history" is going to do what, exactly? Remove all tropes from video games? Remove developers right to create whatever the fuck they want even if it offends some people? Because that's the "side" most of us here are on.

What is it you see the "tide of history" bringing us in terms of games?
Remember the change Ken Levine made to BioShock Infinite after a team member protested a religious element of the game? Was that a loss of creative freedom?

The whole point of criticism isn't to force developers to do things differently. It's to convince them to want to do better.

Remember when they took out pentagrams out of Diablo, and turned it into a kiddie game? Please tell me how a culture that promotes political correctness leads to a richer and better medium in gaming?

but why video games and not movies or tv shows? that show the exact same thing?

thats my question.. wheres the answer for that

Also that 'more often' than not part. What's up with that? Is that a feeling she has? That games more often than not are a force for evil bigots and sexist mysgonysts? I guess the empirical evidence is overwhelming, Nerds are officialy at least as bad as or probably even worse sexists than Jocks!

Well that's what you get for having a two party system. There is simply too much political spectrum to try and cram into two political options, neither of which is all that different from each other. Your entire party's credibility is dragged through the gutter by the 'cook' outliers and the even crazier voters who vote for them.

No wonder that your Congress is so unpopular. Most 'regular' people are disilusioned by the whole damn system. Rightly so, I would add.

NO NO NO! The internet sprang up fully formed from the bosom of the ground. Just like Adam. Get your facts straight man!

Stupid AND Paranoid. A wining combination if there ever was one...

People don't get that this is a WIN for them. They don't seem to get that these rules are there for their own benefit and protection. I really don't get how these mega corporations who are all PRIVATELY owned have political supporters among people who have nothing at all to do with them. It baffles the mind....

I'll say this - I really don't want the government in my internet, any more than I wanted the government in my healthcare. That said, the absolutely corrupt and utterly unethical corporations left the government no choice in either case, so I will settle for the lesser of two evils. Corporations in both cases simply would not do the right thing, so they must be made to do the right thing. Don't blame the government for instituting what will turn out to be far from perfect regulations on both the internet and healthcare; rather, blame the corporations for leaving the government no choice by not doing what's right on their own. The money-obsessed douchebags in charge would sell their own mothers for a dime; of course they could not be left to run slipshod over the populace in their blind greed.

Well said.

The last people I want behind the internet is the god damn FFC and government. Now we can expect taxes, regulations, censorship and everything else horrible associated with the government.

Call me cynical, but I don't see anything good from this.

I'll call you troll. Well played sir!

Hopefully a 65 gig preload.

It was a gutsy move, and I applaud it, we are talking about a horror movie after all. "Feel good" hollywood subplots have no business being in a good horror film anyway. (Or in anything else for that matter)

Just to clarify, I don't think that the Newt subplot was weak in Aliens. It wasn't, it was an essential part of the film. However in Alien3, killing off both Newt and Hicks, also served the plot of the film greatly. First of all it was unexpected, and secondly it once again cast Ripley as an outsider even more isolated and vulnerable than before.

Maybe he already has a PC, ever think of that?

Maybe Blue has a sense of humour, ever think of that?

Man that would be cool. Wait. Hey! I actually liked Alien3. I guess I am alone on this planet in thinking it was a great film that put one of my favorite directors on the map.

Maybe I am missing it... How is pre ordering GTA 5 going to hurt PC development, or Rockstars view/treatment of PC? Would like it explained I think I am missing it.

It's not just about GTA, it applies to any AAA game. Basically you are agreeing to buy a cat-in-the-bag type of product. A large number of preorders basically tells the honcho guys at rockstar that they can get away with doing a shitty port. The money is already in the bag, as people like to say. What adds insult to injury is the fact that GTAIV was an abysmal port, so it's not like there isn't a precedent here.

Anways, it really comes down to one thing. What have you got to lose to wait until release day at least? The answer is nothing, in most cases. With a preorder you can never be really sure.

With GTAV we already know what the gameplay will be like, the question is only how well it is ported. With most games you don't even get that, it's down to either gettin on the hype train or staying off it.

Im probably going to pick this up. I loved the original game, even though it was hard as fuck. I didnt really like the second game as much as it had a weaker story, but I do remember roflstomping with battlecruisers in the later parts of the sequel. I dont think the original game had them, those units were fucking broken.

That sounds like a wonderful excuse for each vendor to blame the other for performance issues...


Was just about to write something very similar. Sounds like a wonderful way to break or severly slow down your system. This part is relevant though:

There is a catch, however. Lots of the optimization work for the spreading of workloads is left to the developers the game studios

I predict that lazy developers will continue to be lazy. Amen.
