CSE spying goes against the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

This is going to be a political shitstorm for Harper - and the conservatives.


Fun fact, documents classified secret can not be used in a public court of law in Canada (nor in Germany) which is why nobody will ever face any consequences. This is the perfect crime, you know what they do, you know it's illegal, but it would be illegal to provide proof that they did something illegal.

Politicians are thus criminals that legalize their own crimes. Awesome, imo.

Oh yeah, and fucking Sarkeesian is going to have a fucking field day with this... /eyeroll
Considering that she throws a hissy fit whenever someone disagrees with her opinions, it doesn't take much for that to happen.

Can you show me an instance of her having a hissy fit, or even talking to someone disagreeing with her?

She's always civil, or even smiling, and her interactions tend to be solely through her videos, as she is there to start dialogue, not be a part of it.

Starting a dialog and not wanting to be part of it is like throwing a molotov cocktail into a crowd of zombies and THEN complaining the zombies bite your ass off. In case of Sarkeesian, if it were the zombie apocalypse and she'd ask me for help, I'd ignore her, because according to her, women can help themselves and men helping a "damsel in distress" are misogynistic. I think that's super awesome, from now on I will only ever help men when I see one that needs my help, and never a women. That's the world these people want, no?

I am in the same camp Eraser. I usually hate RPGs which wont let me develop my own character. But the third Witcher simply looks too good to pass up, even if in my mind it will probably be more of an open world action adventure, instead of a proper cRPG. Still we were talking about 'why sex matters' and in the case of an adult game with a strong and well developed protagonist, as well as an ambiguous and slightly off-kilter world where nothing is as it seems there is no reason why it shouldnt.

Yeah and for that reason I will consider getting it anyway. Once it's on sale or something. The sex in Witcher is however not why I get these games... For me it's only the atmosphere and lore. (Which is why to me, these pre-defined characters are not adding much at all).

It is however nice we get to see these games still being made.. even if they are tainted by consoles

This is a game certainly deserving of a HD update. I will buy this. Super-addictive.

Except

Does not come with Shadow of Death or Armaggedons blade expansion packs
No random map gen
No 1v1v1 maps/scenarios

It's an empty husk of the game. Yeah in HD, but lesser in all ways compared to the old game.

This is the one area I disagree with CDProject Red about...the reality is that anyone sufficiently determined will at some point in his life have all the sex he wants--that's actually a regular part of life for most adults. But in fantasy games what won't happen in real life is monster slaying, living in fantasy realms, and the rest of it. That's the appeal. Yeah, sex is indeed natural--in adult life. Inside fantasy entertainment though it often comes off as designed specifically to titillate pubescent teens...;)

The books written about Geralt are all adult themed, they are layered and smart 'despite' being fantasy. Not everything is at it appears to be could easily be said to be the main theme of the stories. This is not a CDProject decision, to insert gratituous sex scenes where they have no business being. Geralt's interaction with the fairer sex is a big part of Geralt's story, this is not R.A. Salvatore we are talking about here, but please dont let artistic vision and plot devices dissaude you from your prudish views.

The problem is books are books, and books make for terrible video game stories. What is layers and smart in the books, comes about as a mini-game in Witcher games ,) And I'd prefer Witcher (the game) wasn't about book characters at all, because an already defined character has zero character development. Not to mention we barely have any choices in how to develop his character. Maybe W3 will fix that by having us play Siri for a while, but I doubt it. In the end if you read the books, SIRI is a defined character, and W3 will not define her differently.

This is primarily why I consider Witcher games not good RPG's

Kinguin is the absolute shit! Bought tens of games there since I found out they sell for the lowest price. 25+ games and not a single problem with these guys.
Dying Light cost $54 on Kinguin and $59 on Steam.
I better off getting games from GMG with their 20%-30% codes

Edit: I see Kinguin has a steam code gift option also for $47, again same price as GMG

Hah.. GMG...
This product is not available in your region. Sorry!

Or to sum it up

Why I don't buy games from GMG anymore 1:1 prices and region lock. Not a dolt better than uPlay
They don't have control over what games can be sold at what region, that's controlled by the publisher.
I can not buy Grey Goo from them for example because it is not available in NA
Some games however available everywhere like GTA5 for example and they always have a coupon floating around for a minimum of 20% off.
Not to mention if you link up your Steam account with them you get money back for certain achievements from games.
I think I have like $5 on my account for doing nothing but playing the games.
To each their own I guess but I much prefer GMG over any shady key seller sites any day.

The thing is the key sites I used worked fine and shipped working keys always on-time Grey Goo isn't available to me either.

And hell would freeze over before I linked my steam account to some UK service like Playfire. ^^ I absolutely HATE this social gaming shit.

A cult classic? More like an example of everything that is wrong with QTE's in gaming. Like Creston I played it once, uncensored and all, and that made me hate QTE's with a passion. I didn't get to see fuck-all of the game, all it was were colorful button prompts interlinked with dialog. And because you have to mash QTE's constantly all the time you literally don't notice jack shit about the game.

Most retarded game design of the last decade. And THIS gets a lazy ass HD remaster.. haha

None of those things you said are really true. There are plenty of hard removals, silence and other ways of completely circumventing powerful cards.

There is no real problem with Hearthstone except that it's new and it hasn't been expanded on for 15 years. Give it a minute.

Then "circumvent" Ysera card draw or Barongeddon instant 8 dmg....

I hate nerfs. Why cant they buff other shit instead, there are a ton of useless cards in Hearthstone that no one is using. And I really mean utterly completely shit useless.

Because that leads to unnecessary power creep. If you have an outlier, fix it, you don't buff everything else to its power.

The real problem is that HS lacks game systems to balance power in other ways than just hp and mana... no graveyard, no exile, no jailing mechanic, no dispel or interrupts that prevent abilities from triggering... the game is dumbed down for the masses and that's why it has no balance

I wouldn't buy game keys from any site that needs to offer a guarantee.

I do, and had zero problems so far 4 games from various key sites. As for the why.. Steam prices are absurd, uPlay prices are WAY more absurd, and Origin prices take the take of absurdness.

I don't pay 50% more "just because"

All I get when using HTML5 on youtube is crashes, broken videos, and 720p max...

Flash may be darker, but at least it fucking works (and never crashes for me), unlike Firefox's own HTML5 implementation.. BAH

Exactly. Steam should allow you to rollback to any previous version, as you would a traditional game.

I was annoyed when Ubisoft recently released a patch to improve performance for Assassin's Creed: Unity that actually broke SLI and made things worse - before it was actually working fine.

To be fair to steam, they support that, it's the dev that doesn't keep old versions as package on steams servers. Some games that do this allow you to always "revert back to previous version" via the beta menu

Putting Steam into Offline Mode just to prevent ONE game from downloading a problematic patch is NOT a viable solution. Steam allows users, via the Beta tab, to run a different build of the game - Gearbox could simply allow users to roll back to the previous version.

And it doesn't even work, try doing it, if a game has a queued update steam won't let you start it even offline.

281 friggin employees! No wonder this studio is so big on always-on DRM, they are likely pwned from front to back with investor capital that's dictating the rules.

And considering the rumors that went around this would not surprise me at all.
