That guy who lasered the helicopters certainly deserves punishment, but 14 years is ridiculous. People who have killed people have served less time in prison.

He won't serve 14 years in prison. What do you think would be an effective deterrent to someone who does this multiple times and could cause large scale loss of human life?

I just want Origin to go away so I want to believe Origin is hanging on the ropes....
Why?
I am not defending EA I am not a big fan of them but why do you wish for Origin to go away?
Competition is good for the consumers. Origin is not any more pain to use than Steam and at least EA offers 24hrs money back if you are not happy with the game you've bought, something hopefully Steam will start to do in the future.
I love Steam and everything but I don't see how Origin's existence is a bad thing for gamers.

One thing I will say for EA is that their refund policy is good. On the other hand it has to be since they keep releasing barely functional games. My buddy got a refund for BF4 + Premium by just explaining to support that the latest patch had introduced yet another problem and he was fed up. This is like after playing it for 100 hours to boot. I wouldn't have given him a refund in that situation.

I wouldn't mind seeing big competition for Youtube. Sometimes it gets a little uppity.

I don't like how they've handled copyright issues, in that any corporation can just claim whatever, without any proof, and it's up to you to prove you own your content, and also it's gotten so crowded that it's congested frequently. I laugh at the "144p" resolution.

I went to publish a video the other day for some buddies and discovered that they made it impossible without their lame social network wannabe. That and the whole "who do you want to use Youtube as?!" "what name do you want on Youtube?" "plz use your real name" spam shit means I would absolutely welcome a Youtube competitor. Also just let me toggle always HD, all the time.

Their copyright policy is insane, someone plays 2 seconds of a song in your video and it gets DMCA'd by automated algorithms.

It's not that gamers are killing videogames, it's that us oldsters were abandoned. Many of us would like a REAL starfox 64 part 2, a much better metroid than Metroid : Other M, etc.

Yeah I agree to some extent Suppa. I buy a ton of games but the market shifted away from my tastes in several genres so I only buy what directly appeals to me. I bought a 3DS and several games for it because no one else was making those kinds of games.

I really enjoyed Blacklist so hopefully this is just routine industry stuff and not an indication of future direction on Splinter Cell.

I think the bigger problem is attracting women into a profession that demands insane hours that conflict heavily with raising a child which is a serious concern for most women at some point in their life.

Except for the exclusive 9 month female pregnancy (which still requires a lot of complementary support by the male companion), the man's job is 50% parenting, at minimum, for up to 18 years. Welcome to the year 2014.

18 years? I think you mean 30 years, welcome to the year 2014

Awesome! We have gender segregation in development.

I don't know, it seems like a good initiative considering how underrepresented women are in game development in general. I might agree if things were more fairly weighted already but they're not.

This whole trailer seems to be aimed at the graphics concerns from the previous media they put out. Of course they should probably have an asterisk somewhere in the video that leads to *running on SLI GeForce 780s.

Well, now I feel kind of silly. What on earth made me think blues posters would have anything approaching a sense of perspective?

Seriously, if you can't understand why some people would want to make bots, and comepete against others who also have bots, you're one massively uncreative dude.

"Defending cheaters?" Are you fucking joking?

FWIW I understood what you were shooting for, I just happen to disagree

Not understanding why you guys are so dead set against the game. I get that you many donít want to play it. But forming opinions about a beta that does not represent the final product is kind of strange to me.

I'm not dead set, just sort of indifferent. You've done the same thing in reverse BTW, coming to a positive conclusion based on beta play. Asking people not to evaluate a game they're playing is kind of weird. I can ignore a lot of the "beta" aspects of the game like broken quests but the core of the game itself just didn't grab me. Maybe that will change in the future but in the meantime I think I'll just pass.
