Shame really that such censorship exists. If they replaced 'people' with 'zombies' - no one would bat an eyelid.

That's because there is a massive different between cold blooded slaughter of innocents for "fun" vs fighting for survival against a monster (that is already dead anyway).

In a game? What's the difference? You press a button, animation plays, scripts fire, particles fly from emitters, models play animations, red decal left behind... such difference, what amaze!

In case you didn't get my lame meme use, I am saying, there is no friggin gameplay difference AT ALL. You are arguing over how a model looks, not how gameplay is.

If you replaced all l4d zombies with babies, nuns and angels it would change nothing about the gameplay.

He is right to do so. Gameplay, as a series of context-less interactions, is irrelevant - the controversy has always been about the context of these interactions. Shooting enemy soldiers in CoD was generally considered fine, shooting civilians in MW2 wasn't. Same gameplay, different models.

(Edit: Sepharo, the very first post did!)


Well that's fair and all, and something for reviewers and customers to decide.. not a store front. Store fronts, especially the near monopoly that is Steam, should never censor greenlit games with 13000+ votes (that's more votes than 1x Doug Lombardi).

If they really worried about the content, put a Mature tag on it (notice how Steam does still not have a age check....) and let reviews decide. If it's a piece of shit game then that'll become clear once it's out. But censoring something based on hearsay is bullshit, imo.

Ps.: And yeah, I would totally prefer a l4d with abstract shapes, just fyi ;p I play such games purely for the gameplay, not for their "intent". Only in RPG's, where good writing makes me *care* would I draw lines. And there it is even more problematic, because when I draw lines there that means writers censor themselves and don't explore the full capability of this medium.

Censorship is never the solution.

And this is why Steam should never gain total market dominance....

Censorship in all it's forms be damned.

Not to mention blatant double standards, I'm sure you can do just as horrible things in GTA V - are they going to stop that from being sold on Steam?

Or why not mention Postal 1 or Postal 2

http://store.steampowered.com/app/223470/

:=)

Steam doesn't have any standards to begin with, steam censors even the mention of competing stores including mentions of GOG, any post with criticism to steam is filtered out and will never even appear in your feeds.

Steam is jock full of censorship. And it's kinda hilarious many people here are not even aware of it because they never even explored the depths of Steam.

It is partially why I am not angry at people hating on Steam. There is a fine line Steam threads from becoming a "nice" store to becoming a "pain in the ass"

And steam is moving ever closer to the latter.

Do you pay attention to the meta when you’re designing cards? Were there any holes you were trying to fix or archtypes that you just weren’t seeing?

Mike Donais: We definitely talk about the meta and about counters. One of the things we wanted to do is have options for people if they’re losing to a specific deck type. So for example, if you keep losing to a deck with secrets, we have the guy who steals your opponent’s secrets. Similarly, if you keep losing to a deathrattle deck, you have a taunt that gets +1/+1 for each deathrattle your opponent has. So we like giving people that option.

This just everything that is wrong with hearthstones idiot designers. Because while that alone would be balancing, they also added creatures that get +x/+x from your OWN secrets, EVERY FRIGGIN TURN IT'S ACTIVE

So assuming you have the unit that steals secrets AND the unit that gains massive stats from secrets (And you have the secret that gives you double a creature on hand when it dies) you have an infinite cheat mode.

Hearthstone, designed by idiots.

Has someone played the FFXIII port on the PC? Is it worth playing the port over the PS3 version? (all details about the story being naf or great etc notwithstanding. I'm purely talking port.)

I only played XIII-2 on PC, so aside from setting resolution and shadow-resolution (which actually does make a huge visual difference) you can't rebind most important buttons (like why BACKSPACE is used for anything I have no idea..)..

But it does look good and runs fine on my system though it randomly (And VERY jarringly) jumps between 60 and 30 fps

FFXIII I have no idea... played on a friends PS3... and watched the rest on youtube

i had this same issue, if you have an nvidia card, go to nvidia control panel, and i think under 3d settings, pick the game profile, then make sure it's set for maximum performance instead of auto. the game is so un-demanding on modern graphics cards than your gfx clock speed will be constantly downclocking to 2D clocks, as it doesn't even really understand that you're playing a game. that was the fix for me at least.

check out the full soundtrack for xiii-2, it's soooo good. best FF game i've played in a while. it has it's shortcomings, but it does a lot of stuff right.

as for the xiii port, i played with default graphics settings, so at 720p i think, it just felt "right", although i have heard of a 1080p mod that's easy to do. really it's the same as a console, except for more stable framerate.

the real deal is that xiii was pretty awful, and doesn't necessarily need to be played to fully enjoy xiii-2.

I absolute love FFX13-2 so yeah.. and the soundtrack is indeed amazing. That.. and Sera in beachwear .. cough

Trying the Trial ;p Am seriously pissed off about Hearthstone match-making lately.. so this is welcome we'll see if it's fun or not..

What's wrong with Hearthstone's matchmaking? I ask because I just started playing it again after months of not playing, and it's constantly putting me up against Secret Mages and Hunters. I can't tell if it's just crappy matchmaking or if that's just the flavor of the month.

There is a hidden rank you and everyone else has, and doesn't care whether you change deck, try a new deck variation or just experiment. So if you just want to "build" your deck ranked matches are complete waste of time. because by tier 16 or so you will hit a brick-wall. At least in EU match making. I hear the US has TONS more players, and thus a lot more noobs.

Hrm, well I'm going to have to check this out, I think. I have spent way too much time playing MtG in real and virtual format, (MWS!) to not even try this for 5 bucks.

Yet another game to add to the queue!

The demo version is pretty solid for just trying it out. You are limited to Easy AI, Easy Trials and no trading. Not sure if you play other people or not. I think you can.

EDIT: Found the info. You can't do the following with the demo:

Use the Black Market
Trade with other players
Purchase from the “Just For You”section of the store
Purchase preconstructed decks
Purchase avatars
Save avatars
Participate in Judgement or Ranked matches
Play against Medium or Hard AI
Play any Trial (including Dailies) above Easy difficulty

https://scrolls.com/2014/11/this-week-in-scrolls-giving-thanks#more-4923

Only 1 addendum, you can play Easy and Medium AI, not hard AI with Demo

And while you can't purchase the preconstructed decks you can buy deck packs just fine (and just for you offerings are not exactly good deals)

Google or Youtube search "happy days Fonzi jumped the shark" and watch the video that comes up.

All will become clear.

I know what the term means. It's not clear to me if eraser does, at least I can't figure out how to fit it in the context.

It means to take a risk in the context By buying a game barely anyone played yet.

And I am enjoying it greatly. ^^

And here I thought it was because you said there was no way you were buying it due to its in-game credit card processing. Then buying it.

Well as I posted, there is a way to buy from the website via paypal and many other payment options, just not in-game. Very confusing.. but in-game chat informed me

So this is game is utter fail.. why? Because only payment option is INGAME with a credit card.. HAHAHAAHAHA


It would be bad enough as it is, but there is no way I am buying something by entering my card info in a blackbox within a game.. not haver Sony just got completely pwned. (And I don't have a "US credit card" ;p)

Ps.:

Ah.. in-game chat is helpful

Trying the Trial ;p Am seriously pissed off about Hearthstone match-making lately.. so this is welcome we'll see if it's fun or not.. but without a Steam version there is no chance I will buy this.

Ps.: I can't even find where you COULD buy it...
