Good to see Banished on the list. Sad to see Thief so low considering. And good to see Black Flag up there, my personal GOTY 2013 that one, DmC Devil May Cry held on all year (as my PGOTY) until I played Black Flag.

Banished is nothing but a soulless broken sandbox with massive bugs... I had hoped it to be so much more, but after year 25 I ask myself, wtf I am playing this for, what's the goal? There is no goal, no progression, no point. And the hoarding bug still isn't fixed. Wtf need 4 people in a house 2000 units of firewood and 1500 units fish for. When the entire rest starves? Sigh...

The last resort for what determines wealth if the or $ go poof is not gold or silver, but food, medicine and weapons. ^^ If either of these currencies really went poof JIT trade would stop, 90% of Europeans and Americans would die. Big cities would fall, water and electricity would cease to flow.

The consequences would be so vast that it can be safely said that the $ and will never collapse. Such hording is also a very bad idea, read up on the laws passed on gold trade during that depression you quote... government has the right to confiscate your gold in such situations.

I think you misunderstood what I said or I am not explaining myself clearly. Mankind made up currency (just because they felt like it) instead of bartering goods, currency (gold/silver) is used to trade for goods, it is the most resistant metal on Earth and can not degrade.

Humans are not stupid and would survive if there was no currency whatsoever... well some humans are stupid, but not all. Anyways, If paper currency goes (slet me be clear this is speculation) people collectively fall back to the 'other' known currency that jumpstarted fiat currency. If gold/silver were to go poof, which they can't, they are metals, then people would trade for goods. If the desire is for someone to get metal currency right now, the point is to get it discreetly and store it discreetly.

The IRS and government can declare an audit (from those old laws) if they feel like it. But that audit only occurs on bank deposit boxes, where some people stupidly put stuff like that. They can demand then, if people do not have any in their deposit box to "turn it over" but an American does not have to turn it over period, they can simply say that buying anything with 'gold' is illegal.

And again I am not declaring that Fiat currencies will collapse, I have no idea. If hypothetically the Fed and Euro go kaputt, then the IMF will declare a new Fiat Currency.

I agree with most of what you said, except "humans are not stupid"

You don't have to give little Johnny unfettered access to your account to let him play a few games you have that would be appropriate for him. I hope you don't have credit card info saved on your wife's account...

I imagine these conversations:

Dad: "Johnny why are you so upset??!"
Johnny: "I clicked on this game called Mortal Kombat, and it loaded and I won my fight, and the game told me to finish him, so I did, and my... my character... BWAAAAAAAAAAH!!!"

Wife: "Honey, what is this charge to Valve, LLC for $3,530.43? Did someone hack our account?"
Husband, horrified, logs into Steam and sees that Train Simulator and all DLC have been purchased and added to account.

Well to be fair, if you were smart you would not link a credit card to steam... if you link paypal on check-out you still have to enter your paypal password. Which your children or family should definitely NOT know ;p

So what does this mean? It means that military intervention on the part of the US/EU in the Ukraine to maintain its territorial integrity would necessitate a full-scale, medium-intensity war on land, on the sea, and in the air.

Nobody would do that simply because the Ukraine isn't in the Nato. We did not respond in Georgia, we will not in Ukraine. And we won't even care in a month unless Russia does something silly.

There is a finite total of bitcoins possible, which means it is by its nature a deflationary currency instead of an inflationary one. That means it is a better idea to hoard the coins than it is to invest them or spend them.

That's right. Bitcoins encourage fiscal responsibility unlike Fed Reserve Notes. Our consumer-focused economy is very much influenced by our debt-based currency.

This is in opposition to a producing economy that is wealthy and out of debt. A deflationary currency like Bitcoin is what we need to stop the ruling corporate and government elite who benefit from robbing us to their benefit.

We are slaves to debt and the ruling elite who perpetuate it.


You do realize, that if everyone hoards bitcoins they are worthless, right? Someone has to actually sell them for their to be real money transactions possible.... if everyone hoards them, nobody could buy anything with bitcoins.

Actually, the same applies for FIAT currencies, hoarding is extremely stupid and actually devalues a currency.

That's not saying I disagree with you about the economy and the currency being totally bad and really bad really for human freedom, but bitcoin isn't a solution.

If your main currency were bitcoin, what you see now is the complete collapse of an economy. Nobody spends it = prices fall, everyone waits for prices to fall further = total collapse of economy, production stops, wages fall, money is worthless.

Well either way we are a really fickle species that relies on notion of wealth. As was mentioned earlier, bitcoins are about hoarding, rather than trading. Its basically like gold and silver, but much more susceptible due to its digital nature. When fiat currency (paper money not backed by anything, like Fed Dollars since 1971 and the Euro) go POOF, the last resort for what determines wealth is gold and silver

The last resort for what determines wealth if the or $ go poof is not gold or silver, but food, medicine and weapons. ^^ If either of these currencies really went poof JIT trade would stop, 90% of Europeans and Americans would die. Big cities would fall, water and electricity would cease to flow.

I knew you only wanted to whip out your gamer penis and show us all how big and better it is than any one of a differing opinion. Which is why I didnt bother explaining myself further, why waste my time.

not really, i just wanted to point out that you probably dislike MP games in general and arent a regular, frequent player of them (because you suck! ha! omg j/k).. and that titanfall appeals to you.. for better or worse

just helping to establish a precedent because it seems like a common theme

you dont have to say anything more than you already have, its pretty clear cut anyways - your defensive evasion is just as descriptive as far as im concerned
You are pre-judging. You're just trying to call me a noob so you can validate your opinion. It's sad.

Come join me in Sniper Ghost Warrior 2 Rifle

He's not calling you a noob, he is saying you sounded like you liked Titanfall because you haven't had much of an experience with MP shooters the past years and that this is a common thread among many who like Titanfall but dislike COD Ghosts yet have never tried Battlefield 3 and 4 (or dislike these for reasons of skill requirements and the often depressing team balance, it's fact, 32 v 32 can be quite depressing indeed)
I assure you sir, my skill in battle is matched to (and beyond) any honourable knight.

I too own, Battlefield 3, pile of shit that it is.

I have a different opinion, deal with it my good sirs.

We are in fact, dealing with your oppinion by talking about it ;p And of course we deal with it by accepting it, after all who are we to tell you what game to like, but you can't prevent us from speculating why you like it and drawing (maybe wrong) conclusions based on your posts...

Either way, you like Titanfall and that's good for you I give you kudos for this interesting reply though. Good sir indeed. I wish you a lot of fun in Titanfall

Totally disagree with you guys. I think a live action movie with the cubic landscape and creatures would be awesome. I'm thinking something like Tron. I really would have no interest in seeing yet another all cgi-movie.

Usually movies have a plot though.... not just a setting.

Which would be fine ... but the shit I've seen in IT.. let me just say, live-streamed pornos, during work hours. And I wish I was kidding but we only found that by pure accident when VPN' on the wrong pc number. We jumbled a number and suddenly had a life-feed of porn.

Yeah I just remembered I saw it for 42$ on that one keysite I use for cheap games on Origin.... don't get me wrong, the game was fun in the beta and it's clearly different from COD in some ways... you actually summed it perfectly, it's fast-food. You play it for a short while have fun, and there is no entry skill required which lends itself to pickup and drop gameplay... more than BF4 anyway, which can be super brutal if you are not playing it regularly.

Still I think these systems can be classified as a perk and killstreak equiv though ;p

Triumph Studios, a Dutch developer. What am I looking at here? Is the implication that European developers wouldn't take part in the Euro price hiking, therefore it's GOG instituting it?

Pretty much but it has little to do with gog As a Dutch INDY developer they should have known better.

I am just kinda annoyed GOG betrayed it's users this way. I don't care why, I just care THAT they did it.

It's a fun, casual, fast paced shooter. The call of duty comparisons is only on the surface, customizing your loadout, unlocking stuff. The rest is different enough to stand on its own, no stupid kill streaks, movement is fluid as any unreal tournament and not clunky like CoD. The parkour feels good and isn't so much of a gimmick like it was in "Brink".

It's priced too high but I only paid $40 for it which is more in line what it should be without there being a single player campaign. It's going to be bundled for free with xbox one's starting next month so I suspect EA will go after mass number of units sold and discount it heavily on the PC.

The texture complaints aren't an issue, the damn thing is 48gb install or some such. The option for "insane" textures wasn't enabled in the beta, you'll need 3gb of vram to use it though.

I thought the game would be "Titanfail" while looking at footage and how it looked dated, no destruction etc but after playing the beta it's sort of addicting, something you can get a quick shooter fix from without spending a ton of time trying to find a half way decent game like you do with Battlefield - only to be team switched half way through to the losing side from some autobalance script.

The kill stuff to get to a titan faster mechanic is the very definition of the killstreak mechanic, except there is only 1, and that is your Titan....

Also where hell have you been buying this? Origin asks 60 euros, that's 82$ !

Or put simply, a complete rip-off in best EA manner.

Beta was awesome which suprised me as I don't play COD of BF anymore since early 2000's. EA will actually get some money from me for 2 copies of this game for sure. Well played, well done. An MP game that is actually fun.

so, you dont play MP FPS very often?
There is playing and then there is playing.

I "played" some COD Ghosts recently, that was complete shit compared.

If you didn't play BF3 or BF4 you have no longer any valid definition of what a MP shooter even *is* There is COD, and then there is Battlefield. Titanfall is COD in anything but name and Titans.

By the way, I don't mean this as an insult (sorry if it sounds like one) but BF3 and BF4 changed what people expect of MP shooters fundamentally, you ever go hooked to vast destruction and frostbite you will never go back. BF4 is pretty dang awesome when it works right ;p And nowadays it mostly does ,p

Damaging GEMA's reputation? Good joke, these fucktards can all go to hell for the damage they cause to the local indy music scene in Germany, the profiteers of these "collections" are the BIG 100 of the music bizz, the smaller ones get 20 here and there and that's it.

And even more hilarious, the GEMA is run by those BIG 100, they decide what goes on, they decide who gets how much. And the GEMA has the gall to say youtube damages it's reputation? It's true youtube misinformed people on youtube about the reason a video is blocked, if google had been smart, they should have a said "A retarded judge from Hamburg..." and everyone in Germany would have known, another fucking retarded judge from Hamburg (This is our TEXAS when it comes to lawsuits)

The GEMA should not exist, but at least in this case youtube was riding the wrong horse. If the law says you have to block videos you can't blame the party who sued you, you can only blame the law.
