News Comments > Ships Ahoy - Valiant Hearts: the Great War
16. Re: Ships Ahoy - Valiant Hearts: the Great War Jun 26, 2014, 11:36 ASeven
 
Of all games that do WWI, this one actually treats the subject well in historical terms. The antagonist is terrible though, a Hussar Baron, all evil. In WWI the only evil thing itself was the god damn war.

Also, Hitler never won a single democratic election pre-WWII Germany. Never. So to say the German people were behind him is a historical lie. Most people despised Hitler, the problem was that he always landlocked the Reischtag and President Hedinburg, out of necessity to have a stable country running, gave the power to Hitler and the rest is history.

grudgebearer, I truly advise you to read some history books because you lack a lot of knowledge about WWI, WWII and the years between.

My recommendations: A World Undone for one of the best general overview books about WWI. A War to Be Won for a general overview of WWII.

Right on that number:

And it's more than two consoles, and it's combining PCs and Macs, but regardless, it's sold more on consoles than PCs. It's not dumbed down. People have this weird notion that things are guaranteed to be dumbed down to be on consoles.

I stand corrected then.

Minecraft has sold more on consoles than PC. Would you say it's "dumbed down?"

Wrong on that number.

Minecraft has sold more on PC than on both consoles. Also, lumping two platforms against one is a bit disingenuous.

I feel sorry for the employees but in the end, the higher ups made their bed and now they have to lie on it. Shame the rest of the guys get hit by the stupid decisions from management.

His complaint is that others, by buying products they enjoy, are not shaping the market to his desires. If that isn't entitlement, then what is?

You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

"Consequences it might do to the market"? Oh, do go on. This should be good for a laugh. What consequence is this game going to have that aren't perfectly ameliorated by the simple procedure I described in my post (JUST DON'T BUY IT!)?

This type of reply only shows you have really no idea what you're talking about, do you?

If I don't buy something, others might, something that seems to have not entered your flawed logic. And if others buy the game it shapes the market. If a game with draconian DRM sells a lot it will send a message to publishers, regardless if I bought it or not. And regardless if I bought it or not I will voice my displeasure about consumer rights being throttled due to draconian DRM. That's just one example of all the shit Ubisoft, and the gaming industry, keeps pulling on us.

Then again I'm starting to think you really have no idea of what you're talking about based on your continued flawed logic.
So what if someone else buys something you're not happy with! Publishers are in business to make money, and as long as enough people are happy enough with their products to pay for them, what does it matter what you, me, or any other one person thinks of them?

Oh boy, I can see I'm wasting time talking to you. Holy crap this flawed logic of yours.

I don't think he knows it, but he's implying that the right to not buy a game is the only consumer right we've ever had (if that's what we're left with after giving up 0 rights). This is not true.

Yeah, sad really. There really are people out there like him that have this mentality. Sad and terrible for all consumers.

So... wanting to be treated with respect as a customer and not be bullshited before and after we buy a game is now entitlement.

Entitlement my ass!

You guys are the entitled ones to think we have to listen to your bullshit opinion and give up basic consumer rights just because publishers think we're walking wallets without brains, and you people eat this bullshit all the way and spew it everywhere.

Ubisoft has treated PC gamers as second class citizens and still does. From Watch Dogs locked PC features to Uplay always crashing and preventing people from playing and Ubisoft doing shit to fix this time and again. I don't think anyone here is in favor of any kind of piracy and yet we are still using the same old stupid fallacy of painting every PC gamer as pirates and that it's our fault for this only shows you either have an agenda to say such shit or you're just plain stupid.

As someone said, the only reason people might be defending Ubisoft is either if they're trolls, idiots or shills or a combination of the 3.
Actually, no, you don't have to give up basic consumer rights! You still have the most important one at all - the right to decline to purchase. If Ubisoft puts out a product you don't want, and you choose not to give them your money, then they can do exactly zero harm to you.

Are you subtly implying that anyone who doesn't buy a game doesn't have an opinion about it and about its consequences it might do to the market?

Then why is the PC Master Race pirating their products in the first place? If you guys don't see value in what they're producing, then why spend time on them?

You guys? Speak for yourself.

This new brand of feminism is more about playing the professional victim and trying to change inconsequential things rather than going for the real problems women face in the world today, from the abuse they suffer in countries where religion law is prominent to forced marriages to equality in work salaries and distribution. That was what real feminism was and is about, this new brand is nothing more than first world problems that don't solve shit and serve nothing more than to play the victim card whenever someone says something that they don't like.

Such a shame so many people still buy and eat all this shit, instead of actually working towards an equal society all over the world.

I didn't really enjoy this, spent a few hours with it on the weekend. I like BF games in general but this feels like a weird mishmash of BF mechanics with other subgenres and sits in a strange spot as a result.

Would this be the best way to describe what you feel?
