I didn't know about this game at all.. and that was probably for the better

As i am a huge GITS fan this just reeks of cheap cash-in licensing deal. Specially because FPS is not what I think when I think GITS (but a GITS SAC RPG ala Splinter Cell meets Mass Effect would be awesome... just episodic with new case every few weeks) They could make a fuckton of money with that idea. But no.. mmo fps.. because reasons.. bleh

Btw, for me Deus EX is the true GITS-like game for now DX:HR went VERY much in that direction and probably not by accident. So.. like all others here, I have no idea what the point was of licensing that name for a mmo fps...

Funny thing is, where I live there is a roof floor but NOBODY ever goes there, as the floor makes noises is if the house is collapsing....

I lived downstairs too for rent.. that was.. not nice. It really sounded like my upper neighbors were digging up the walls. Turns out they just had 2 toddlers and a dog. And that dog was super nice and quiet, the toddlers were annoying as hell. They dropped everything on the wooden floor, which sounded .. horrible.

The cultivation effects of sexist attitudes from a general use of videogames over a three year period from a German population has not resulted in any appreciable changes in sexist attitudes.

Saves you clicking on GamaSutra and reading a ton of pointless writing. Study shows there is NO relation, btw (nice clickbait headline which leaves the "no" out to make the headline more baity)

No shit. It's the same reason people who grew up watching Bugs Bunny cartoons don't go around dropping anvils on people's heads. If you can't distinguish fantasy from reality you've got far bigger problems to worry about than whether something is violent or sexist.

When I was 3 I hit my 1 year old brother in the head to see the stars, after watching roadrunner cartoons. Mom threw out the TV after that, and we didn't get another until I was 10 or so.

Interesting anecdote but there is a reason we protect children up to a certain age (though that age is debated hotly and interpreted differently across societies to end between 10 to 16) from certain things. The reason is that their mental abilities are not enough to handle them, specifically fantasy vs reality but also relations with other children and adults. They need to learn social conventions and clues or they might be easily abused by someone with nefarious intentions, and they need to learn to never intermingle fantasy and reality. For the same reason you don't let 3 year olds watch someone play Call of Dooty, Halo or Evil Within.. or porn VNs

But most adults are not easy to influence. For many reality vs fantasy is not a problem they even have to conscious think about, reality is reality, and fantasy is not. This leads even so far that many adults are completely unable to immerse themselves into a fantasy world (something children are very prone to)

So yeah. This study might as well have been about Nature vs Nurture. And it'd be interesting to see what exactly makes people sexist, xenophobic, violent and how parenting and environment play into this. I think games can influence people to some extend, but they can never change established ways of thinking

Btw am I the only one who has no time or patience for podcasts? I want info in snippets readable and nicely sorted, not in a giant blur of voice and talk that takes an hour or more just go get a few points across. And then you can't listen to it anywhere but a tablet or a pc in case you want to actually you know.. click on any relevant links at that time.

So.. yeah

That is very interesting as you are right ;/ The latest (or rather, last.. est?) Win 7 SP 1 install discs have this checkbox on by default. Well.. you never stop learning apparently.

Then I was apparently wrong.

Someone please explain why they don't ship on a 64GB USB drive versus discs.

64gb USB sticks are expensive as fuck compared to 7 DVD's that you just stamp with masters.

If you don't want the game to cost 100$ you shouldn't ask for USB delivery

Such behavior patterns are associated with depression and anxiety disorders. Constant public existence until a certain point, when depression overrides the urge for attention and people wall themselves in.

This is very worrisome. Maybe I am overthinking things ;/

In those Hardline stats the Visceral PR people don't even realize what a fucking sad proof of the state of the game is when the MOST PLAYED MODE is Hardwire (the so called boost your rank up the wazoo by driving in circles mode)

Which is the primary played mode because.. you guessed it, it allows you to short-circuit the stupid progression system Or so I hear...

Indeed, leave it to Square Enix to make trailers that actually establish setting and theme. Felt like right back in Deus EX.. that's a good thing Also I still like the golden tint. I prefer if games don't all go for hyper-realism in graphics.

It's Recommended, but it's under the Optional banner.

Not for me. Look at the second screen shot I posted, it's in the Important section.

You checked "give recommended updates the same way as important updates"

Which is not default, and that means you changed it to that All recommended updates are by default listed under optional.
It takes user action to change that default behavior. Likely like TONS of other people I know you clicked through that when windows first booted back when you installed it.. easy mistake to make, makes your MS rant quite hilarious though

I am mildly positive that this won't totally suck, since it doesn't target PS3 or X360.... or the WiiU for that matter. And hells if it's even half as good as HR it's a must bust

It's a good thing that no serious decision-maker subscribes to this world view. Germany spies on/in allied countries too.

Well why would you think that my opinion is the one decision makers have? I am a citizen and I consider US and UK gov hostile. Why would you spy on me if we are allied? And do you really believe any European spy agency records all phone calls in the UK or USA? (UK isn't part of Europe.. ;p)

Ps.: And clearly the US sees everyone as an enemy. The NSA even says that in the leaked documents.

Not all BF4 servers run 30hz.. lots of 64 player servers have to host with 10hz or the server application hogs so much CPU that it brings the virtual instance down. There was a lot of anger that Dice/EA decided to hide this in the server browser. As the server owners that DO run 30hz are not rewarded for spending more money on that server

What about the illegal surveillance of EVERYONE ELSE ON THE PLANET?
See I don't have a problem with that and I wouldn't call it illegal. Countries have spies. They have spy organizations. They spy on other countries. That's what they do. I'm glad the US does it. We crossed a line sometime back and started spying on our own citizens and yes I have a big problem with that. The Stasi is a good cautionary tale and Snowden did a great public service by revealing how far down that path we've gone but no, we're still a long way from Stasi 2.0.

Of course you wouldn't call it illegal, it is however absolutely illegal to wanton spy on German or EU citizens no matter who does it or why. And as a German I frankly don't care the what and hows. NSA / GCHQ spies on me, that means the USA and UK are enemies and not allies. Also let me just explain to you .. but Germany is part of NATO and a close ally with the USA, it is the core nation in the EU. If you fuck relationship with Germany and hence the entire EU moves closer to China then what is your presidents plan B?

Do you think I want that? I want Germany to be a strong part of the EU, part of a greater thing called the western world. I don't want your retarded government to push my retarded government into some weird alliances with China or Russia. Although maybe to be fair, at least with them we would never assume they see us as true allies
