What if you were a Jew, a Muslim, an African-American, a victim of rape, or a mother of a child? If games portraying these crimes were freely allowed on the open market, do you believe they are conducive to a healthy society?

You are so fucking full of shit, now remove your Avatar because I HAVE OBJECTIONS OF A GAME WHERE A HOSTILE AI ABDUCTS AND MURDERS AN ENTIRE SHIP'S CREW INCLUDING WHOLE FAMILIES, CHILDREN, MOTHERS AND MONKEYS!!! Ohhh the humanity!!

Sure, lets ban every "touchy subject" from entertainment media, lets start from books then films then paintings. Oh and while we're at it who will tell us what is a touchy subject, you ?

Are you suggesting we open the floodgates to any and all games where you play as a character engaged in the most heinous of crimes?

Let me ask you this--how do you feel about a game where you play a Nazi soldier who is personally responsible for carrying out the execution of hundreds of thousands of Jews within a German concentration camp? Your goal: kill as many Jews as possible before the Allies liberate the camp.

Or a game where you play as a self-righteous, post-9/11 hater of Muslims that is on a mission to plan and carry out the murder of dozens of innocent, law-abiding, mosque-attending American citizens in NYC?

Perhaps a game in which you move up through the ranks of the KKK, killing black Americans, with the ultimate goal of becoming Grand Dragon?

Or even a game that first simulates a chatroom where you coax a child into meeting you and then... well, I think you get the idea.

Could you possibly be insinuating that these types of games should be sold? That seemed to be what you had implied. I'm all for the right to freely express yourself, but there really needs to be a line and a democratic society has the responsibility of determining where that line is drawn.

I'm not condoning the Austrailian law. I think that, once a game is made, the cat is out of the bag. No law can exist that will prevent those with the will to acquire such a game from acquiring it. I do, however, believe that those who wish to create such games need to respect the values that represent society at large and use some discretion before deciding to develop them.

I have not played Hotline Miami. I am not making a comment based on an opinion of this particular game. I am only responding to your comment based on the allowance or diallowance of games that contain objectionable content.

With this message, I am now expecting a visit from people with dark sunglasses and earpieces. =)

Do you also have problems with objectionable films, books and music? How do you define what is objectionable? Do you define it by your own personal standards? Are you God? Are you Better than everyone else? Do you feel that the cartoonists in Paris had it coming to them for making fun of God, Jesus and Mohammad? I find your comment on the whole offensive and would like nothing more than for it to be removed and censored. Lucky for you there is this thing called the Constitution protecting your rights to say stupid shit like that with complete impunity. Lucky bastard....

I dont have much to say against Braben and Co. but this is douchy as fuck! Fuck paying for testing. Fuck it with a hard stick!


why? They did it with their kickstarter and many people jumped at the chance. Look at all the early access crap on Steam now, even for free to play games like that DayZ clone that Sony is behind - you need to pay to help them test their game.

I mean, yeah people used to get paid for this kind of testing work but now it's a new revenue stream. go them, douchy or not.

Its different when an its an unreleased game, it granted the testers access to the full game on release and in a way it eliminated trolls from folks who would genuinely spend some time testing and playing the game. Now that the game is OUT though, I just cant see anything but pure greed as the reason for this shit. Basically they are splitting the community in two and adding a paywal for those who pay to get the goodies before the 'other' players do. It would probably also uncessesarily increase the time from when the patch hits the test servers and when it gooes on the live servers. Even if there are no bugs, they would probably give them a few weeks to mess around with new ships and content just so they can justify their 'purchase'. Its just rotten...

Not a fan of that either, but its the way of the times. Everything is about the money, these days you wanna play you gotta pay...

Hasn't that always been the way?

Used to be you pay once, you get everything, got access to dedicated servers, mod support etc. etc. Today you pay to be able to pay some more at release (or maybe if you pay before release so you can get some extras which you would need to pay extra for after release), no mod support, no dedicated servers, no....well. You get where Im going with this.

I was seriously stoked about this game a while ago, as I was a huge L4D fan. What Ive seen of the actual gameplay didnt leave me much impressed though. Doesnt feel like there is much game there. Hope Im wrong and this turns out great.

As for the DLC 'controversy' it was obvious from the day the game was announced that they would be pumping out new monestrs and/or hunters as a way to keep the gameplay fresh and to keep monetizing the game.

Not a fan of that either, but its the way of the times. Everything is about the money, these days you wanna play you gotta pay...

ahh yes the old pre-order bonus, AKA holding already made content for ransom demand.

Someone should get Liam Neeson to sort this shit out.

Or, as previous iterations have shown, timed exclusive. Either way, it's not a big deal.


Depends which way you look at it. From my point of view its locked content, even if for a short time, simply because you did the one thing that customers should never do (buy before you try, or at least read review from a respected source). It's punishing the customers that are smart enough to know better.

It's only punishing you if you're feeling entitled to that content. Sorry to say, in this instance, playing as Goro is probably not going to amount of anything other than "ZOMG I AM GORO". As I said, this is a big non-issue.

Really though, if you think this is punishment, then you really are part of the problem with the entitlement generation.

So waiting for the release of a game to see how it actually pans out and if its worth getting is entitlement?

Is the game THAT good? A lot of people were poo pooin it....maybe I can throw this in before GTA 5 comes out? I hammered out Mordor in 2 weeks and did 50 hours. How much time this one take up?


I guess you could hurry through in 10-12 hours. I spent 30+ hours exploring the station and getting all the collectibles. The atmosphere is so gorgeous, it would be a shame to not stop and savour the best bits.

Sweet. It will probably be a 30-50 hour game for me then.

Next question. What version should I get?
Vanilla (15.00)
Ripley (20.00)
Nostromo (25.00)

Looks to make most sense to get vanilla, cause the 2 things given in the other versions are available for super cheap, like a couple bucks each. Am I missing something?

Thanks.

Bats do you like survival horror games? Or rather Ill put it this way. Do you enjoy games which force you to do set piece parts over and over again until you figure out the exact way to get through them by trial and error?

Well I for one liked Rome2. Warts and all. Its hard not to like a CA strategy game, especially one that looks that good. Yeah compared to the original Rome it was a much simplified and streamlined game, and yeah the AI sucked balls, but I still managed to get quite a bit of enjoyment out of the game I just didnt take it that seriously and got into the spirit of crushing some barbarian hordes. So what if it wasnt that 'deep'? It was fun!

Really looking forward to this one. Blizzard really has been impressing me for a while - they found their footing again with WoW, Diablo 3 isn't perfect but is much improved, and Overwatch had a great presentation (other than the isolated dev yammering about female character outfits.)

Diablo3 is a travesty. WoW is...Im not gonna even go there. The only thing that Blizzard has produced of any quality in the last ten years or so is Starcraft2 and Hearthstone. Ill reserve judgement on Overwatch but it appears to be a reskin of TF2, which might not be a bad thing at all but do we really need another team based shooter?

How long did it take to develop:
GTA V, World Of Warcraft, Destiny, The Witcher 3, Guild Wars 2, Call of Duty games and so on?
Most AAA games take 4-5 years to make. Most games suffer release delays. Many crowdfunded projects and games have suffered delays and still did well when released. Divinity Original Sin. Wasteland 2 and so on.
In fact the kickstarter projects with a higher chance of success usually come from veteran developers. In fact most projects fail.

As you point out. SC has the funds. Has the talent. It continues to show progress on the project. The fact that they are financially stable is precisely why they have a better chance of success than many other projects.

*checks Comet's post history*

Kind of hard to take you seriously when every single one of your posts has been defending Starcitizen. There is a word for that you know?
