Really. So you do not think that the video game industry is over-sexualised? Huh.

No I don't. Sexualized, yes. OVER-sexualized? No. Sex is one of the strongest driving forces in human nature, which makes it natural that it is utilized in entertainment media. If women were the dominant consumer class in gaming, all of the male avatars in games would be hung like bulls, built like Mr. Universe, and sensitive to every woman's every mood instantly (Ya know, like how my wife wishes I was... ). That's just how humans are. It's true in all media, and quite frankly I'm sick of hyper-sensitive, attention-seeking idiots posing as game journalists trying to score points with other hypersensitive morons by continually writing such pointless drek as this shameful excuse for an editorial.

Well, that only shows how remote I am from the standard thinking patterns of most people of this society. For me sexualisation is objectification and that is not a good thing.
Big-breasted, scantily clad women jumping around is god damn annoying in my opinion (on different levels) and it is a kinda sad for me to see that this is actually perceived as the norm.

No just deeply annoyed by the stupidity of it. I wouldn't quit my day job to go into psychology if I were you.

Well, we all have different standards and different moral compasses. Maybe I am just too sensitive.

There's another UI mod called QD Inventory that features a sortable column of value-to-weight ratio. Doing that little bit of math is actually quite useful and I'd like to see it in SkyUI too.

Also, SkyUI only changed the inventory UI. Chests and NPC trading UIs haven't been touched as yet.

And for the record: Morrowind's drag & drop interface was not as useful as the Darnified Oblivion UI. You couldn't sort your Morrowind inventory by value or weight...so let's just stop being 100% ridiculous, m-kay?

I will take Morrowind's UI over Oblivion's any day, thank you very much.

Thank God that I did not have any time to play Skyrim yet. Maybe I should wait a little longer for more useful mods and patches/fixes.

And for the love of peace and superman, can we please agree to accept that "stealing" is an acceptable colloquialism concerning copyright infringement even if it is technically incorrect? Talk about an absolutely pointless discussion.

While I can understand and maybe accept what LurkerLito is saying (I still have to think about it as it sounds valid) you proposal is akin to claiming that apples are, colloquially speaking, in fact oranges.
I guess there is no need for precise communication anymore.

Your right yuastnav, I should have said the fee from a ticket. Oh, I did.

Right, you did not. You said fee (id est ticket) which basically means fee (that means ticket), not the fee from a ticket. What the hell is a fee from a ticket anyway? You buy a ticket and then you have to pay a fee to possess a ticket?
You buy a ticket which then grants you access to a certain area.

Also: You cannot steal fees. You can steal the money which constitutes a fee but you cannot steal a fee itself. But that does not matter because even if you get into a concert without paying for a ticket you still don't "steal a fee".

[edit]
This may note be entirely correct. You can steal the fee but in order to steal the money you have to actually pay the fee first and then steal it since you cannot steal something that is not there.

The entrance fee (i.e. the ticket) yet you have take space in the crowd. When enough people do this, the experance is degraded for all.

Let me get this straight:
What you are saying is that if I sneak into a concert it actually equates to me stealing a ticket although the list of my possessions is the same before and after I sneaked into the concert?

Sorry, matter cannot materialise out of thin air. This is forbidden by the second law of thermodynamics. Try again.

[edit]
Actually this is not true. Matter CAN materialise out of thin air but you still need energy for that and I don't see free energy lying around here. Do you?

[edit]
Well, maybe not out of thin air but out of a vacuum.

Of course not. What the hell would it be that you have taken if you did something like that?

Free rock concert everyone! (or just the sneaky peoples)

Soo... only because sneaking into a rock concert, which you have to pay for, is not stealing it automatically means for you that you can join in for free.
Wow, you really must be morally defunct.

I downloaded TW2 right after the release to check it out. I bought TW2 during the latest sale from GOG.com.

What am i? An evil thief? A valid, legit customer?

No, CD project, you cant be sure at all. You cant even be sure, that the IP is connected to the correct user as several cases over the last years showed. You think that the laywers and their IP research companies do make no errors? Do you think that they make sure, that the "right" users are blackmailed into paying high and unproportional sums? CD Project, you're teaming up with greedy bullies who exploit legal loopholes. Wise up!

Yes, you are a thief. Pirating the game when it was valued by CD Project at it's full retail price, and then purchasing it at a point in time when the game was on sale and you deemed the price acceptable, puts you squarely in pirate territory. This isn't pay what you want ala The Humble Indie Bundle. Not only that, but you started playing it initally with no money going to CD Project at for their development efforts. I really do not see how your mind can blur the difference between you being a pirate and not. You are a pirate.

But, but... this kid's show told me that "being a pirate is alright to be"!

If he is a thief, as you claim, what is it exactly that he has stolen?
Stolen as in transferred something from its previous owner to himself so it was not available to the owner anymore.

Too bad MW3's FOV is not much higher.
And why the emphasis on the plus? It's not like you can have a negative field of view. At least you are now aware of it, too!

You can't have a negative FOV? When I'm done smashing your skull in and your eyeballs are dangling in front of your ass can you say that again plz? BWWAAAAAAHAHAHA

If you people would have played Natural Selection or Tremulous on a regular basis you'd actually be quite comfortable with FOVs between 90 and 120.
For me a FOV of at least 90 to 100 is a must in multiplayer games.

I hate to burst your bubble but when someone says "better" or "worse" it is automatically his or her opinion. It is generally not possible to confuse something like that with a "definitive" "better" or "worse" mostly because something "definitive" does not really exist.

True, 99.999% of the time... using better/best worse/worst is all subjective.

But there are objective scenarios:
  • Which has the better survivor rate: leukemia or a common cold?

  • Who's has the better batting average: guy with 450 average or the guy with a 100 average?



  • But I hear people say "Car X is better than Car Y" when they're comparing apples and oranges (compact coupe vs full sedan). It may be better for YOU but it's hard to grade X and Y when there are too many differences.

    That is correct. However the, let's say batting average, is based on statistics which is an observable that everyone can agree on in case everyone lives in the same universe.
    Still, even in this case people can redefine words like "good", "better" or "worse". We may think someone is crazy when he says that a batting average of 100 is better than of 450 but that is because that person may follow a different norm that we do or that the conditions which say what is good and what is bad are different.
    For example: I actually like when it rains, when it is dark and cloudy and there is no sun shining and I have my reasons for that - and therefore I will call that good weather.
    Other people think I am insane because for them good weather is when the sun is shining and everything is bright.

    Wish there was a way that servers could filter out players over certain ranks. It sucks that I can't dedicate my life to this game and am only rank 8 and get my ass handed to me constantly by 35+ers out there.
    There is an easy fix for that, though unfortunately you may not like it.

    Don't play FPSs with unlocks and levels. Frankly, the genre is not suited for that. There's plenty of excellent FPSs out there that are way better than Battlefield and CoD. You just need to spend a little time finding them.

    Unless, of course, you like to spend hours and hours of not-fun game time just to ungimp yourself.

    i agree. everything unlocked from the get go. its just tailored/or better suited to the hardcore nuts. the fun and enjoyment is not there for the casual gamer.

    That's a pretty laughable statement. CoD sells 20 million units a game these days, Battlefield 3 has already sold 8 million. The majority of those are not "Hardcore gamers". Those ARE the casual gamers and they've proven in droves that they like unlock systems.

    You want to play with everything unlocked, then play on unranked servers. That's what they're there for.

    As for the previous comment "There's plenty of excellent FPSs out there that are way better than Battlefield and CoD." Don't confuse YOUR OPINION of games with a definitive 'better' or 'worse'.

    I hate to burst your bubble but when someone says "better" or "worse" it is automatically his or her opinion. It is generally not possible to confuse something like that with a "definitive" "better" or "worse" mostly because something "definitive" does not really exist.

    OK, so it's "harmful to young persons". Alright. But this makes it not available to adults, too. What has this to do with protecting young people? Isn't that censorship? Is censorship legal in Germany, like in China, Iran, and North Corea?

    In Germany censorship is just as legal as in the United States, Australia, Great Britain or any other country in the world - that is: as long as it fits those in power or some lobby group they will do it.

    However this is slightly confusing because I do not really see who could profit from banning that game.
