eRe4s3r, you seem to be viewing this as being gaming press vs gamers. They mean it as tolerance verses intolerance. I believe the "obstinate child" they are referring to is the sort of bully that the original "gamers are over" articles were actually criticizing and that they list examples of.

This (as I see it) misinterpretation is behind a lot of self-perpetuating anger.

Fair enough, I don't think it's entirely out of the realm of possibilities that I am being preconceived when reading this and thus project meaning behind words that are not meant. But it is the failing of the writer, not the failing of the reader, when a written meaning is ambiguous. Unless that was the intention in order to blur and obfuscate the stance of the writer.


However, I am never going to be tolerant about anyone using DOX, violence or abusive attacks against people. Be it a feminist or a gamer, to me doing that is the lowest of the low. Only complete scum tries to intentionally hurt other people. And I think it is extremely damaging to the discourse when writers only paint 1 side as the evil side while ignoring the happenings on the other side.

This is why the anger is ever growing, why the toxicity is constantly there. Media paints the victims of 1 side as victims and on the other side everyone is portrayed evil. And that is no longer ethical journalism

eRe4s3r, I almost exclusively play complex strategy games, may favs being from Paradox and Matrix games. I look at realtime pauseable games like Crusader Kings 2, Europa Universalis IV and Distant Words to be an evolution of the grand 4x turn based strategy games.

RTS' are generally about frantic resource management, DW is nothing like that. It's much closer to GalCiv in the way it plays. Everything you state above regarding what you want is covered in DW. With that said, I completely understand why you may not like DW, it's a game you really have to work at to find the gameplay that you find enjoyable. That's the nature of the Sim first, Game second approach that DW takes.

Anyway, I'll pick up GalCiv III since I loved the previous 2. I'm not sure I'll play it as much since it just seems like and upgrade to GalCiv II, but we'll see. I'm definitely not bitter about the 4x landscape, I think there's a lot of great stuff out there. Maybe you should try Endless Space?

Oh oh Don't get me started on Endless Space... while an OK game, it's also extremely dumbed down and simple. I actually supported that back in it's "whatever it was" phase.

So far I haven't yet played a 4x that I really cared for a lot... Since MOO2 (Where that was new) I felt like everything is just rehashing or slightly changing MOO's gameplay

DW is very special, as you say. It's nearly more or less a dynamic sandbox... sadly not a lot of things can happen in DW

Could you let us know the title of the article you're referring to? I'd be interested in taking a look at it and comparing it to what they've written in their ethics code.

http://www.polygon.com/2014/8/28/6078391/video-games-awful-week

One side has folded its arms, slumped its shoulders while pouting like an obstinate child that has learned they are getting a little brother or sister but wants to remain the singular focus of their parents' affection.

The other side has opened its arms, unable to contain its love and compassion, because they understand they are no longer alone.

This week, the obstinate child threw a temper tantrum, and the industry was stuck in the metaphorical grocery store as everyone was forced to suffer through it together. But unlike a child, the people behind these temper tantrums are hurting others. It's time to grow up. Let's not wait until next week to start.

Sounds to me like an insult Or am I reading this just that way because of a preconception?

Also I like how the OP-ED paints a clear picture of poor feminists being the victims, when they doxxed , send threats and did all the other stuff JUST THE SAME.

And this is why I said hate filled, a site engaging in ethical discussions with some guidelines can not allow OP-ED's portraying 1 side as the good loving side while the other is the stupid tantrum throwing family retard (rhetorically).

OP-ED does not need balance, but if an op-ed lies through omission then how is that ethical again?? If an OP-ED is allowed on a site with such guidelines that is clearly showing hate of the other side then is that ethical?

I am sorry, but a 4x game where entire colonies build a single "factory" with literally no unique ideas that put it apart from the paint-the-stars-your-color bullshit that this genre stagnates in for 2 decades now.. just does not make me care ;/

Why can't developers make a proper 4x, with new ideas?

I guess you haven't tried Distant Worlds: Universe?

How is Distant Worlds not a paint the galaxy your color game? I mean yeah, you can play as pirate (And that is unique and innovative) but in the normal game your objective is to spam colony ships and colonies.

But I admit Distant Worlds is not what I call a 4x. to me 4x are turn based. When it's real time it's an RTS.

Maybe I am just mixing the genres there but that's how I see it. So to me Distant Worlds is a very decent and very complex RTS (And for the same reason SINS is not a 4x game to me, when It's real time then it isn't 4x in my definition. And yes, I admit freely that this may not be the standard definition.

Maybe It's the failings of giving games of such broad scope a such non-descriptive genre name.... I guess I want something that is more emergent than 4X games, and more complex than RTS games. A 4X that tells a unique story, that is emergent based on your playing and the AI, but that is in that also RANDOM in the sense that no 2 playthroughs will be the same.

And to me the greatest failing of 4X games is that they have no end-game and many are not even designed for the scale you have at the end. Everything is boring as hell % victory conditions or diplomatic (unite all) or research (research victory tech) conditions. That's utterly boring.

Some few games tried to get some kind of story in, but they failed to understand that *a* story does not make emergent gameplay. It has to be something that is produced out of the actions of the player, that is hand-crafted but also randomized. That through inter-actions and clever scripting allows emergent situations and changes to the gameplay....

CoD? Really? That game whose 'lag compensation' can make you unload half a magazine on a foe just to see in your death cam that you didn't shoot at all?

Yeah, but lag comp only fucks you over if you are high pinger Unlike in BF4, where the server fucks you over all the time, randomly.

From what i watched..it was nonstop jump jet, shoot, jump, shoot. i understand that in an arena game, but not in a CoD/BF game.

If you are saying it's like Quake or UT just with way more guns and gadgets, that's the biggest damn compliment you can make to an FPS nowadays.

I've basically given up on Battlefield at this point.. with the latest patch Dice managed to actually make the hit detection even worse (god knows how that is possible) but I have REGULARLY seen RPG's pass through entire fucking vehicles, and I don't mean I missed, I mean it hit the armor on the side, flew right through, and exploded in the GROUND behind the vehicle. (You can experience this lovely situation yourself in TV missiles and UCAV)

And stats gathering points to the fact that more than 30 of 100 bullets are NOT REGISTERED server side, despite hitting on your screen.

The fuck... before at least when you hit something with an RPG things actually exploded. they did not pass through vehicles without doing anything.

I'd suggest you play around with the latency sliders in the game if you're actually seeing that sort of thing happen "regularly." Can't say I've ever noticed something like that aside from maybe the odd lag spike here and there. Bullets maybe more so, but it's a million times better now than 6 months ago.

Classic mode in this last patch has been awesome as well, would recommend everyone give that go.

Hardline... yeah no, that's a consensus pass with our group!


My "latency" is below 20ms and that slider does not change anything, I've got it 2 notches above minimum. Since I often use the RPG I actually saw it happen irregularly even before, but now nearly every 5th rpg passes through moving vehicles. With helicopters nearly every 2nd rpg misses or explodes with no hit-marker despite hitting geometry on my screen. Had the same problem in the beta, and now have them again after this fancy CTE patch. Good to see we are improving (haha)

The reason for this, by the way, is not my latency, it's the boundary of the server-side high frequency tick rate "bubble" when a projectile passes out of the high frequency update bubble it gets lost in action 3 out of 10 times and what you see in the distance is not what is actually happening on the server to begin with (ie, collision detection is not where visual mesh is). Sorry, but I don't play games so that my bullets can play lottery against the server, which seriously is what BF4 feels like now when things are even slightly further away.

Anyhow.. this has gotten so bad I stopped playing BF4 now for good.

My next game is gonna be a COD game if they don't fix this before November. And even if I may hate myself for buying a COD game, at least there I know what I get. Solid fucking shooting. And not 30% of all bullets simply disappearing

And stuff like this

Was not fixed (old video, but the problem still exists, except it now happens mostly with and againts vehicles and over certain distances only

On another note, I pray you look at the team making the game on the website. See those lovely chaps ?
They look like a bunch of gore-grind metal loving horror movie fanatics. They are making a game for their subcultures, directed to other partakers in these glorious darker fun laden death obsessed subcultures.
Don't like it ? Take a hike. Go look at games made for you. Spewing shit like this game should not be made, let misfortune befall lthe buyers etc is just not ok.

Yeah, it is trash - trash culture. Deliberately transgressive because it still gets a rise out of people, who all should really know better.

Well, at least the name is fitting. No one is going to pick this up and mistakenly think that they bought Snuggle Truck 2.

As for expressing whether this game should ever have been made, etc. it's hypocritical for you to defend the first amendment right of this game to exist, but not defend the first amendment right of critics to make comments like those. Hypocritical expression, however, is your right.


On that note I would totally want to make a game like this and call it snuggle truck 2 just to fuck with people Hatred is such a boring name...

Either way, love all the butthurt in the youtube comments.

Let's face it, if we want games to be seen as art, then MORBID and DARK are a thing we have to accept exists and indeed SHOULD exist, just like that weird japanese rape game had a point and reason to exist. Any argument against it is nonsensical. Do you want games to be art, on par with books and movies? Then you have to ACCEPT these things.

In books nearly every hard-fantasy story has rape, sex, slavery, murdering of innocents, brutality and morbid/dark segments. Game of thrones, has it all. And in games it's suddenly not ok?

I don't get this argument. To me all games are acceptable, you don't have to play them, you don't have to LIKE them, but you have to *accept* that they exist. And governments are really not helping with censorship. Imagine game of thrones had censored every offensive scene. We'd be left with an empty worthless carcass of a show.

Grml.. I am against censorship of any kind, and I want games to be art. So to me, everything a game does is acceptable. That does not mean I play it or when I do that I enjoy it, but it means I accept it exists.

Gamers are being pushed out of gaming.

Did you totally miss the explosion of indie and Kickstarter titles as the glories of 90s gaming were brought back to life? What are you grumpy about?

indy and KS titles are nice.. but what about a mass effect style game with more mature and serious story? Or a Witcher style RPG in a fantasy setting WITHOUT elves and orcs? Or GTA in space?

Sure we get some nice titles from KS... but they hardly saturate the demand

What's fueling GamerGate?

Annoyance at articles like this one.

Many years of vented of frustrations to boot, ever more shallow games that only iterate and stagnate, always online DRM; crash buggy and unplayable releases, scandals like Alien Colonial Marines / Sword of the Stars 2 / Rebirth and all the others (that each affected only few, but together affected many gamers). If not some sex scandal and a idiot "press" copying each other to death it would have triggered over any other mundane issue in the long run anyhow.

You can fuck gamers over only so much. And as much as developers fucked gamers over, I think the "press" that gamergate targeted has only itself to blame. These scandals with these games, would never have happened if those sites and "journalists" had done their job.

It's unfortunate gamergate has no real guidance. It will degenerate into more toxicity and at some point it'll be like any other MOBA community

And losing control of the hobby? haha... we never had any control. If we had control we would have had Pillars of Eternity 10 years ago, Alpha Centauri 2 sequel (that would not be gimped CIV5 mod) and proper 4x games that innovate. We would have mature stories....

I mean for fucks sake, aside from Witcher 1/2 I haven't played any decent RPG in the past decade that had mature story. Mass Effect was juvenile at best, not BAD, but not entirely what I wanted either...

Let's face it, the mass market does not make games for "hardcore" gamers. (Where hardcore = played more than minecraft, Farmville and COD/BF/Halo/Destiny) if you only played few games in your life you have no compass for what makes a good game...

Anyway, Gamergate is so diffuse and confuse, it's impossible to really grasp it, to meld it. It's just another pointless shit-storm only this time it is a pretty dang big one.

The European Union and the Obama administration have been increasingly vocal about the tax-avoidance strategies of multinational companies and the countries that enable them. The European Commission is conducting a broad investigation into the relationships between multinationals and perceived tax havens like Ireland, Luxembourg and the Netherlands.

Yet strangely enough don't actually do anything about them. How odd. Isn't that odd? It's so very, very, very, very odd.

Or maybe there is a cunning plan behind that.... you should ask Cyprus or Greece what happens when a tax haven becomes financially unstable or the Swiss what happens when a tax haven pisses off Germany and the USA at the same time. Suddenly bank secrets are not so secret anymore.....

It's very cutter.

So you think Leigh Alexander is a real feminist? If you do, then please excuse me while I laugh hysterically. Feminists generally do not call all men scum and rapists, dox other feminists and make rape jokes about other feminists.

But please.. don't let facts disturb your world view In fact you are perfect proof of the kool-aid effect. To you opinions not taking some feminists for factual reasons serious are automatically worthless, because you drank the kool-aid that such a stance can not be accepted and that all feminists are real feminists.

I find that quite funny.
