Good work, government. Really, just a job WELL FUCKING DONE. Vote yourselves another raise, you clearly deserve it.

Please everybody, vote all these fucking incumbents out of office at the next election(s).

I wish it was so easy, but remember, the only idiot you have the power to vote out is YOUR idiot You have no control over all of the other idiots in the House, and their districts are usually so gerrymandered that they have no fear of losing. I saw a statistic on The Daily Show the other day that mentioned that there is a 91% incumbency rate in the House. An MSNBC article mentions that Congressional approval is down to 5%...

Meanwhile Obama's approval is down to a record low of 37%, even lower than Bush's rating at this point in his presidency. When Bush finally reached it after 6 years the liberal dominated media celebrated. Now it's not even being reported by those same hypocrites.

Most polls put Obama's approval around 50%. Maybe that is why the lower number isn't reported? What media is liberal? Even public TV and radio leans right for years now. Are you talking about media in other countries? About 25% of the American public are completely sold on the propaganda and keeps repeating it in the face of all evidence while the rest of the world scratches their heads.

NBC/MSNBC Liberal, ABC Liberal, CBS Liberal, CNN mostly liberal. The US has a single conservative news channel and liberals hate it because it challenges their narrow twisted world view.

The tea party movement is truly a grassroots movement, not a giant political machine like the Republican or Democratic parties.

Hahaha.

I guess he's never heard of the Koch brothers.
The Tea Party was grass roots, true. Then, as mentioned, it became the tool of billionaires looking to control us.

The sad thing is people think it's trying to do the opposite. The tea party gets people up in arms over controlling stupid shit, like how large a soda you can buy, while making its party members believe it's ok to control the shit that matters, like your reproductive system.

Look over there, a three headed monkey!

People (mainly the liberal media) conveniently forget the Tea Party was founded by a single woman in response to everyone's outrage over the 2008 bailout George W. Bush signed. If the kiddies had any sense at all they'd do a little research instead of happily eating up the lying bullshit and bigotry they hear on MSNBC and the Daily Show. You should be on your hands and knees kissing the Tea Party's ass for going against progressives in both parties who are spending the country into an EU-like oblivion.

Binfuckinggo.

Of course it isn't, too busy still blaming the majority controlled GOP congress for everything. The GOP created Obamacare too doncha know.

You have to remember, Obama is innocent in all this, I mean throwing temper tantrums and demanding the other side always give you everything you want, yet still call it "compromising" is so acceptable for someone who's President of the United States.

No all the worlds woes are because of the GOP, or Bush. The majority liberal media and all the brainwashed school children of the last 20 years say so.

Pointing out that your childlike 'insights' are not only self-contradictory but also have no depth or substance isn't an ad hom, go look up the definition. It's also ridiculously off topic even in the context of the labour discussion.

This news isn't going to make me avoid getting a PS4, North Americans have plenty of possessions built on the backs of glorified slave labour already and I don't need to make a personal political statement about every purchase choice.

Who's talking about purchasing anything? Why not contribute some solutions for once instead of telling others how wrong they are?

Axis, Thundr, no one is arguing for communism over capitalism, that's a straw man argument. The point is capitalism works best when it's regulated. Economies work best when the wealth is spread more evenly. Middle and lower class people spend their money, rich people do not. American worker productivity has doubled over the past 30 years, but adjusted salaries have only risen 0.2%. Yet the top 1% of earners have seen their salaries double. There is a growing rich-poor gap, and it's weakening the economy.

No it's not at all a strawman. While I don't at all disagree that you need to have regulations, we're at the point with government spending and government oversight into people's daily lives that is so far beyond what this country was founded on.

Stop blaming the rich, blame the politicians on both sides who are taking taking taking taking and giving us back nothing in return. The whole class warfare angle isn't bringing people together, it's a tactic to keep everyone fighting each other while they tighten the noose essentially.

We used to have journalist in this country that worked for the people, instead we now have to rely on NSA whistleblowers like Snowden because our great media is in the pocket of our lovely politicians.

The government is not your friend, they are not there to provide you a life. These assholes can't even balance a budget, perhaps if we stopped printing money left and right and handing out more and more welfare to people who honestly don't deserve it, the wage gap wouldn't have stagnated like it has.

Doing things how we're doing it now is unsustainable. That's just the reality of it.

And what's your idea of "spreading the wealth" taking from one class to hand to another? How about taxing that one class 100% and realizing that won't make a dent in our debt? Tax and spend, tax and spend, that's the liberal's guide right there. News flash it doesn't work, it hasn't worked and it will continue not to work.

Stop spending, reign in the debt, balance the budget, hold people accountable, shrink government, that's the only way it's going to improve.

If any of the higher ups at Blizzard proper think good ol Bobby is going to let them have 5-10 year dev cycles and a "when it's done" (or really more like "when we feel like it") type of thing continuing, I think they have a rude awakening coming.

If only big-brother wouldn't regulate our labor industry we wouldn't have to outsource so many jobs to China forcing them to enslave their own population to make cheap products for the rest of the world Rolleyes

Its seems like every electronics manufacturer in China has some pretty horrid conditions/practices. Who isn't doing something like this over there?

Im sorry but thats the price of rampant free-market Capitalism. The industry will shift its production to places where the labour is cheapest. Labour is cheapest in third world countries. Ironically this very practice propels those countries into the first world, while impoverishing the customer/consumer countries. Capitalism is not the be-all end all, Im sorry to say. Anyone who believes that is seriously misguided and doesnt want to read the writing on the wall.

Capitalism has flaws sure, it's far better than the alternative. And the news story here, points that out. Socialism/communism is a bad thing.

While prattling on about evil business and CEO's, while advocating for bigger government in the same breath most of the time. Yeah reality is a bit separated from the thought process or logic with some people.

Funny how the 4.5 out of 10 Jim Sterling review (PC version) was pulled from the web quickly after it was released.

In case anyone interested: http://i3.minus.com/iezd9zrPOYkAD.png

To be honest though it just sounded like he doesn't like these kind of games the begin with.

Sterling lowballed Beyond Two Souls today as well, and it sounded like he has more issue with the game's director than the game itself. It's pretty apparent there's little integrity with game reviewers/writers.

I don't see the problem with having a SP campaign as long as it doesn't detract from the development of the multiplayer segment of the game; really if its basically a freebie (games all cost $60 these days anyways) then whats the big deal?

I don't either, I'd rather an actual single player story than just fucking deathmath with bots ffs.

I'm not particularly liberal.

Stopped reading right there, that you could say that with a straight face while constantly blaming Bush or the GOP or conservatives for all the world's woes is just fucking astounding.

That's all it takes. Find fault with the GOP and you're a liberal because you only get to pick one side or the other. No middle ground. Shake them pom poms.

There's a difference between finding fault and blaming everything on Republicans or Bush or conservatives ALL the fucking time which is all Beamer does. I mean shit you confront the guy with something he has a hard time debating and out comes the race card half the time automatically. If he isn't a liberal then there's no such fucking thing.

An (un)imaginitve Elite copy so to speak.

What? I can understand that people don't like X. It has a HUGE barrier of entry, it just throws you in the middle of the universe without explaining a single thing, it has a million things to keep track of, and it has a complex UI that most people give up on.

But how is it an unimaginitive Elite copy? Elite has so much rose color on those glasses, it's incredible. What exactly is there to do in Elite that you CAN'T do in X? (And obviously do better, but then again Elite is almost 30 years old.) I'm pretty sure the answer is nothing.

Now let's see what you can do in X that you can't do in Elite:

- Own factories
- Own multiple ships
- Spacewalk between multiple ships
- Auto-trade
- Supply factories with auto-traders
- Set up auto-traders to automatically sell your fabs finished product
- Own capital ships
- Fly capital ships
- Capture other ships
- Send boarding parties to capture capital ships
- Play a storyline
- Wipe out space stations
- Wipe out entire sectors
- Own a headquarters
- Fabricate your own space ships
- Fabricate your own weaponry
- Have Wingmen

That's just off the top of my head. Maybe if I think about it some more, I'll find others.

Again, no problem if you don't like X, but saying that X is an unimaginitive Elite is just crazy.

The problem the X games have are the same they've always had, a severe lack of polish on any system in the game aside from the visuals, and even those are often hit and miss.

And everytime they release a "new" version it's the same thing, it's always buggy as hell with features that either are flat out broken or never end up working as intended.

The X series along with the Gothic/Risen type of Euro developed releases is one of the reasons I'm generally leary of titles developed by smaller Euro dev teams. It's always the same, clunky interfaces, broken features and often terrible graphics.

You really don't need to invent conspiracy theories when they start actually admitting all the things we've said they've been doing for years. Just sayin.

Promising short dev time for episodes never happened? I seem to recall that happening. Then their staff got bored and decided to work on overrated crap like portal and Left for Mediocrity er I mean Left for Dead and re releasing Counterstrike 17 times in different forms. Now they're making their little steam box.

Valve along with Blizzard are prolly the two most overrated over protected entities in the entire industry.

They promised? Did they make this promise to you? Where did they use the word promise? Perhaps you can point it out.

They tried a different development approach, it didn't work out. They still make some pretty great games that sell exceedingly well so while I would love to see Half-Life 3, I'm willing to be patient about it instead of spouting off stupid shit about mediocrity when I'm demanding another title from the same company. Better yet put your money where your mouth is and uninstall Steam since Valve offends you so much.

Nope, didn't think so.

I don't know about *promise*, but Valve did say, time and time again, that their plan for episodic gaming was to have a very short turnover time. Clearly, that didn't happen but no one called them on it because Valve is god.

I don't like either party, but in the case of the financial crisis, Republicans deserve a much larger portion of the blame.


So Bush repealed the Glass–Steagall act and forced banks to loan to people who never should have gotten said loans in the first place since they couldn't afford them? Clinton and the democrats are the major reason the housing bubble burst. Yet it's the republicans fault, just like the gov shut down is the republicans fault, just like the Senate failing to vote on a budget is the republicans fault. ETC ETC ETC

Notice a trend there? Everything is always the big bad evil republicans! damn them! /shakes fist
Actually, no, I wasn't even talking about Glass-Steagall, I was talking about things like the Commodity Futures Modernization Act, and other atrocities, likely to have Phil Gramm's fingerprints on them. I don't think you have looked any further into this than maybe the CRA and just decided that it's all the Dems' fault. You really should do a LOT more reading on the subject.

The Commodity Futures Modernization Act of 2000 (CFMA) is United States federal legislation that officially ensured the deregulation of financial products known as over-the-counter derivatives. It was signed into law on December 21, 2000 by President Bill Clinton.

And?
