I loved C&C series for their singleplayer campaigns, so imbalance of factions/units didn't bother me much, but I can understand the frustration of competitive players in last few installments.
That is why the announcements of this new C&C being multiplayer-only concerns me greatly... These guys at EALA (now Bioware) cannot make a balanced game, nor even stable multiplayer experience for that matter.

EALA is no more, EA closed Danger Close after both MOH games bombed pretty much, which was the remnants of EALA. Victory Games, formerly Bioware Victory, is working on this iteration of C&C

Why are you so hostile? There was zero hostility in my response, you're simply inferring that's the tone I'm writing it with when I'm not.

Are you sure you're not inferring that he was inferring that you were being hostile?

Auto defense for being called on his not so subtle swipe at religion. because TOLERANCE RIGHT?

ok, and might I ask a reason this was removed? No one was attacked no name calling was done. Actually never mind, you did a great job of proving my point for me Blue, well done.

Bloomberg's NYC Ban on Big Sodas Is Unconstitutional.

Well, that was probably expected. Banning is extreme. But a sin tax makes sense, a la tobacco and alcohol. Caloric drinks over 16 oz are unhealthy and unnecessary.

Yeah, I'm surprised Bloomy didn't consider that. Tax the shit out of it. It won't stop everyone but it'll cut down a lot. I quit drinking pop years ago. I only use it highballs now.

The fact that he tried it anyways while more than likely knowing that sort of shit is unconstitutional isn't surprising. Politicians have made it very clear they will shit all over the document if they can get away with it.

Perhaps the senate should better spend their time voting on one of the many budget proposals sitting on Harry Reid's desk before attacking video games.

the world would be a better place if written death threats sent directly to a known individual were an arrest-worthy offense. Maybe not one that comes with jail time, but enough to have the police knock on your door and take you down for a few hours of questioning to determine if you were being serious or not.

I am not disagreeing or agreeing. But it also qued a Jaws line variation... "We're going to need a lot more policeman"

Or just put them down for 8 hours of community service.

Well, you need the policeman to put them down for the community service.
By and large I don't think most, or many, or even more than 1 or 2, deserve actual jailtime, but if there were repercussions then the anonymous coward (not Anonymous) would rapidly disappear.

Why not just arrest and toss in jail anyone who doesn't agree with you on anything? Because it's a slippery slope when we start censoring free speech based on people's feelings.

According to the FBI death threats on social media are not protected by free speech. Then there's cyberbullying. Two kids in my state were arrested yesterday.

The ironic thing is death threats and abuse on Twitter is against their own rules. Stupidly they put the public in charge of reporting violations and it is often used to censor innocent people.

So we're going to run around throwing high schoolers in jail for basically being high schoolers. Rather than using common sense on a case by case basis.

It may be just perceived death threats today be they serious or not, tomorrow it will be if you're too conservative minded for example, off to the train to Auschwitz for you.

Social justice, especially of the tumblr, reddit/<insert social network site here> is the worse kind imo.


You're being a tad melodramatic, don't you think? It really started getting out of hand immediately after the Columbine High massacre. In recent years and state budget cuts most of that was reversed. Going after cyberbullying is even more costly. You are worrying about nothing.

But it is funny you bring up conservative minded people on social media. They are routinely targeted on Twitter by large groups of leftists falsely reporting them as spam. Many well known conservative bloggers are being censored. Not surprisingly it never happens to the other side. Spend a few minutes googling and you will be amazed at how corrupt and hypocritical twitter and facebook have become. My advice is don't use them at all. Bullshit isn't sustainable for long.

Which is why I used that as an example. And I've said this a few times already, for a party that preaches tolerance, liberals sure do go out of their way to censor or just outright slander anything that doesn't agree with their ideology. And they often do it in very deceitful ways.

Yeah, poor ol' Congress. I'm sure they're just all broken up about it. You could make a fortune collecting crocodile tears around Washington.

Agree!

Hey now I'm sure Congress is very broken up about their 17% approval rating. Devastated even. Yup.

Well when the current sitting president blames congress for everything under the sun when half the time it's his inaction or his cronies in the senate's inaction, that's what happens.

Not that congress doesn't deserve it really regardless.

To rephrase what I mentioned earlier, without naming names to avoid the butthurting. Fish brought this on himself by being a douche and obviously not being able to take that kind of attitude back. The idea that people are defending him for this, is the same as the social justice tumblr and reddit users that seem to always have one unimportant cause or another to cry and whine about. This is no different.

Still waiting for your game, btw.

Why? I am interested to hear how that has anything to do with anything or what your intended point is. Is there a previous discussion that offers context to this?

I believe he is being, as that guy said, a "tosspot".

Come now, a better question would be when isn't he being a "tosspot"?

I really hate corporate America. problem is i dont much care for liberal America either.

someone needs to come up with a whole new system of government and finance.

Golly, you mean like a socialist government? Something where a balance is struck that its fair to everyone?

Something that has yet to ever happen in the history of man?

but but all the other times it was just flawed! This time it'll be perfect!

Until they run out of money making the same handful of yearly titles. Can't say I didn't see this coming from Kotick when Vivendi originally took a controlling stake in Activision.

I'm sure to Bobby now completely owning Blizzard is icing on the cake, I bet he wished he'd originally bought them all those years ago when he joked that the CEO of Davidson & Associates was crazy for purchasing Blizzard who were pretty much unknown at that point was crazy for doing so at the time.
