This whole business of blocking someone because you got really emotional over something that person said is silly.
Come on people, you have a perfectly functioning brain. You can read something someone said and then decide on the fly whether you want to just dismiss it outright or further think about it.
It's not that you can actually get dumber by reading something.

I understand blocking someone because of spam, which I rarely see here, but because of opinions?

If you're gullible enough to think Beamer and jdreyer are sincere then you're as worthless as they are.

You know what? I'll make it easier for you. Since my opinion is more or less congruent with theirs you can probably just put me on your ignore list, too.
Saves you the trouble of actually reading and thinking about opinions different from yours. Why discuss anything when you can fling around terms like "social justice warrior", something I'd have rather expected from kids on 4chan.

Yes, nationwide demonstrations against sexism in video games might be too much but it's still a problem and I cannot fathom why this article is such a problem for most users here.

jdreyer, has pretending to be a feminist social justice warrior ever succeeded in getting you laid? Do you go through this same routine in real life?

Mad Max RW wrote on Jul 24, 2014, 20:13:
I'm assuming the resident social justice warrior underneath me just said another one of his weak retorts. Having him on ignore is so nice.

It will never cease to amaze me watching these lonely people preach from the safety of their ivory tower penthouses, latching onto the weekly "equality" bandwagon just to troll video game websites with their nonsense. That's why the Beamers and the jdreyers of the world act the way they do. They are lonely.

Please, just stop. I'm embarrassed for both of us.

You didn't even read the article, did you. How can you say she's OVERstating the case? She's describing ACTUAL events that happened to her and others. How is that OVERstating? Look, I get it. You want nuance, subtlety, reasoned debate. Well, let me welcome you to the real world. That's not what works. What works is in-your-face smashing of biases and forcing change on people.

Of course no one has ever overstated an issue or used extreme examples to make a point. Forget reasoned debate, how about any at all? The moment someone brings up something here they are immediately pounced on as if they are 'against women' and there is only one true view. The article won't even open for comments. Yeah its hard for me to take this more serious, I've been to countries where violence against women is a very immediate and serious problem in a way that not only interferes with day to day life but actually made you feel morally obligated to help. Guilt trip Tumblresque posts preaching to the choir on a Macbook while sitting at Starbucks? Not so much.

Sexism comes in many forms. On one hand you do have places where violence against women etc. is a daily occurrence but on the other hand there are so called civilized community which, from the point of view of the law, have equality when it comes to gender but where "casual" sexism is still very prevalent. The only way to change that kind of behaviour is to point it out and to educate people from a young age.

After reading the article I am at a loss why so many of you find it so upsetting, as if it was attacking you personally.

1960s: Those people that write about racial inequality should just shut up already. Constantly writing about it won't do anything.

It should be talked about but not at the expense of ignoring other similar issues. There is lot of discrimination and harassment in general that needs to be sorted out. It isn't like women are the only groups getting harassed. Its just one of the more visual groups.

The tech industry discriminates against people based on age quite a lot and other industries have there other biases.


So would you go to, say, a demonstration against the war in Vietnam and tell the people to stop protesting because hey, all wars are bad and you shouldn't just protest against this one but against wars in general.
I mean, I get the point, but the point seems kind of ridiculous.

Of course all harassment is bad but sometimes you have to focus to get your message across clearly.

The decision to use the CryEngine for a space game always stuck me as odd. I realise that the Crysis games have big levels but this is on a completely different scale.
Though I know next to nothing about the technical details, so maybe someone who does can explain what the hell is going on.

I don't know why all the fuss on FSX. X-Plane is great, cheaper, and I still don't understand why isn't on Steam.

Unless X-Plane has had some drastic changes the last time I tried it, it was horrible compared to MSFS. Its scenery was bland and generic, the cockpits bland and generic and the flight modeling was a joke.

I felt the same, just switched. X-Plane was great while the scenery and cockpits in FS weren't as good and the flight model in FS felt kinda gimmicky compared to X-Plane.

Axis wrote on Jul 2, 2014, 08:20:
I had plenty of things to say about Shootmania back in beta and through the first several months of release - and none of it was good.

Ill recap:


Been many months since I fired it up, pretty shit game.

Here's a few of the many qualified reasons Shootmania is a pile of shoot:

1. The insanely inept and vain dev responses on the beta forums when people gave solid constructive criticism.

2. Shootmanias constant 'announcements' that their garbage game is the new quake among the elite pro gamer tournaments around the world, even during beta.

3. Shootmania has terrible network code which has been improved but LARGELY lacking in almost every way imaginable.

4. Their eye destroying UI.

5. Complete lack of a US community and players, and a sparce EU one.

That doesn't make any sense. Point 3 is the only point that you listed which gives any indication about how the game is.
Whether the developers listen to criticism or whether there are too many announcements doesn't tell me ANYTHING about how the game itself plays.

You claim that you say why the game is bad but then you don't actually back it up with any arguments.

It may be difficult to believe but we aren't actually batshit insane enough to even have any bunkers around here.

Nothing against beans. Although I don't like them very much.

Yeah, this definitely has red flags all over it.

And after reading that interview with the devs, I lost interest in it.

The fact that it isnt truly procedurally generated content and is instead specifically crafted (so everyone's going to experience the same wildlife, flora, geography, etc of every planet) was a bit of a let down.

Not to mention the fact that their focus is simply being MMO exploration and space fighting rather than missions and a story/campaign bummed me out.

I was hoping it was going to be like a procedurally generated sci-fi Skyrim-type game with single player story/campaign, side missions, random jobs/quests, star system exploration, planetary exploration, space and land battles against AI enemies, AI NPCs, etc.

Maybe one day

Probably no day. [...]

Why not?
Maybe not on the machines we have now, in the sense that trying to simulate the human brain on normal computers is very inefficient because they work completely differently, but that doesn't mean that we won't have the type of computers who are very efficient at simulating an ai that is capable of procedurally generated missions that feel like they were written by a real person.
This is, of course, very fictional and the science behind it is highly questionable but I wouldn't necessarily rule out such an option.

Instagib and low gravity sounds like a horrible idea. You have very little control in low gravity which means that you will be fragged immediately. I guess the smarter players will avoid jumping as much as possible.

Hall of giants in CTF mode was fun as hell, though, since low gravity was turned on per default on that map, if I remember correctly. Great fun.

Watched a video of it. *shrug* Looks okay.
Not something I'd pay a monthly fee for. Maybe a sale.

Though since I only play on PC good riddance.

Who is blaming all men? No one.

A weird defensiveness always emerges whenever someone talks about male privilege. You're not personally to blame for being privileged unless you actively work toward maintaining that privilege at the expense of others, or stick your head in the sand and deny it even exists. If you don't do those things, no one is blaming you.

For most males, this topic is poisoned to the core thanks to radical feminists. [...]

Could you elaborate on that? I'm not sure I understand what you mean.

Any news of a freelook mode (ability?) inside of the cockpit?
Elite Dangerous has that "feature"

As for X-Rebirth at least they are working on the game and not on a DLC or next title.

Considering how fubared Rebirth was, maybe just scrapping it and starting over from scratch would be the wiser course of action...

Yeah, I feel the same way. For me it seems that there are just too many small things that don't really work and when summed up it becomes kind of a pain to play.
Just the way the cockpit, the menus, the stations, the trading, giving orders etc. is designed it would probably be better to redesign the thing from the ground up.

Rebirth was an experiment but it didn't really succeed.
