Why do people keep giving david cage money? All his games are mostly story where the story is terrible.

You can't quite play anything else like them. Heavy Rain was an interesting game for example and some aspects of the story really resonated with me. They're not great games or great stories but they are interesting.

Who is still playing Diablo III anyway LOL

Lots are still playing the game. Those with short attention spans, or are of the whiny entitled gamer generation, aren't.

His comment was retarded but hes some troll who has escaped ban because <whatever>, no reason to sink to his level.

Too many other games do PvP well already, including other Blizzard ones. You can get that sort of ARPG PvP feel from HOTS, DotA, POE, etc etc. I can't say I care about this anymore.

Well, I don't I play games as form of escapism, not to socialize.

There is an obvious retort I'm going to resist making here

To each his own, its a great market where we all get the choices we want.

Caveat Emptor on these key sites people.

Heh. You realize if it's actually portrayed in a mature manner, people like Sarkesian would have no problem with it, right?

It's not the content, it's the tone and portrayal, and idiots (like yourself), that are too mentally handicapped to understand the difference.

That seems pretty naive to me. Her income literally depends on her having a problem with things.

There are few realistic portrayals of sex in the media anyway. That goes for movies and television doubly. People don't want realistic, they get that already. They want the fantasy.

Two things. First, I think his sentence is lighter than a regular person would have received.

I don't. I've seen similar results for first time offenders, suspended sentences are quite common. People keep trying to use other examples from other cases rather than judging this one by context.

Second, this is hardly the only case where a cop has been shielded by the system.

I don't think he was shielded by the system. If you want to talk about the past this sort of thing would've been swept under the rug and that would've been real injustice. I'm quite happy with the results. The officer didn't get a suspension or something silly, he lost his job. He didn't try to fight it and that's likely the reason he didn't get jail time, just like many people who take suspended sentences in plea arrangements.

I don't think creating segregated programs is the way to encourage more equality in the workplace. I also don't think women want equality in the first place nor do I think thats even possible due to simple human nature. Some of you live in these idealized, fantasy worlds and while I think aspirations make great forum speech, they don't translate well to reality.

As long as this supposedly functioning system continues to shield the bad apples and other connected folks from equal consequences to those that regular people face, it is broken.

I don't think any bad apple was shielded here so *shrug* and no one said the system was perfect but likewise it doesn't feel broken to me. If this guy was actually shielded and still working then I would be as upset as others. Regardless I'm not trying to champion law enforcement as a whole here, I just think that the punishment fits the crime in this case.

"I feloniously stole data, invaded your privacy, violated your Constitutional and civil rights....Oh, yeah, and I'll totes get another job in a related field with a private company without much of a problem at all.

No he won't, he has a felony record. He will be lucky to work in anything related to the field considering how prevalent background checks are in it and deservedly so. I don't think a higher standard has to automatically mean jail time for every possible offense either. I don't see how a jail sentence was warranted here under the circumstances.

I would like to take a moment to acknowledge that there are good, even great, professional officers of the law who bust their asses to keep the public safe and do their job ethically. However, those men and women now seem to be very much in the minority

Quite the opposite, we wouldn't have a functioning system of government if that was the case. It's easy to snipe headlines and simply ignore that the majority perform admirably under challenging conditions every day doing a job that most of us don't want to.

Ken does interesting stories but the games themselves have been coming up short for awhile now. I would really want an emphasis on improved combat systems before narrative this time.

Yeah I'm with Quboid, people know what they're doing here and there's a reason those keys are so much cheaper than legit sources. Ubisoft could've handled it differently but they don't seem to give a shit about their PR anyway.

That plea deal doesn't seem unreasonable to me either. I think he would have been fired if he hadn't resigned first but I don't know. He certainly would have deserved it, he has no place in law enforcement.

Yeah exactly. With a felony record there's no way hes getting a job in law enforcement again and the women probably has a good shot at a civil suit because this is America and why not.

Some idiot on a news site I was reading was talking about how he should be in prison for 10 years for "raping her", people are so melodramatic.
