I remember everyone saying Thief 3 sucked and was the worst piece of crap ever but I enjoyed it and its remembered as different from the originals but still not bad. Most of the people here just said things like 'got it for $40 from green man gaming so i hope its good' the horror!

What planet are you from Red? People loved Thief 3. It was a great followup to the first 2 from story to mechanics/gameplay.

This one, no -- It's just another AAA moneygrab with no passion.

So many of you liberals have absolutely no idea what you ask for, cause you have no idea what it's like outside your basement and lofty ideals. Go join the forces, do something for our country, experience the world, and come back wise.

The forces don't go elsewhere and make a living for themselves in a different culture.

Their time is paid for by the government/state. (Government employment : Pretty much the most leftist occupation you can have)
They don't have to experience life in other places.
They live on bases, in a different world than the nation they're located in.

-scheherazade

Spoken like a basement liberal.

Libertarian, actually.
That's right of center, FYI.

-scheherazade

Well then a basement libertarian, but certainly not one who has experienced the military overseas. I am a libertarian who served overseas and I certainly wouldn't have made those comments due to my views and world experience. The military has historically been on the right for many good reasons - most of which they are responsible people doing responsible work and have a profound love for their country they serve. Quite the opposite of much spin you hear from the liberal core... : )


I think his point was more that they live in their own unique "world". That's undeniably true.

My own anecdotal evidence would say that people I went to school with who went to war came back "lefter" than they left. That includes independent or completely disenchanted as well. But many of them went in strongly conservative. Exposure to cultures (good and bad aspects) other than your own tends to do that in my opinion.

If we're speaking metaphorically, the military operates much more like communism (the actual in practice authoritative kind) than other political philosophies. You've got a command structure, people are assigned jobs, and they do those jobs to the best of their ability usually for no reward but to the benefit of the whole.


That's completely false. The vast majority 'live' off-base among the communities they serve. Bases have minor amenities; you get necessities and some recreation. The vast majority live their lives off base unless they are in a war zone.

I don't know a single right-leaning veteran who comes out of the military as a leftist, and I know hundreds - that's complete crap. The opposite of your statement tends to happen. The military is everything most leftists tend to avoid like the plague. And yes, it's authoritative as expected when you sign the dotted line for however many years you want -- and the best life experience you can get paid to do if you can handle it.

For young war vets, I know 6 of them and 2 are pretty close friends. Like I said, they came back less "conservative". It's hard to pinpoint because it of course depends on the way we use terms like "left" "right" "conservative" "liberal" "libertarian" whatever. But in my opinion they left with opinions like, "Rah war yeah! Turn it into a glass pit! Republicans yeah!"

A pitiful few would fit that grossly liberal assumption - you gave yourself away to those who would know better.

Americans don't join the military with arms pumping and war on their minds hoping to go into combat and kill someone or get themselves killed. They join in hopes to have a better life, get a free education, get job skills, get out of a bad situation, travel, etc. And if they are called to defend their country they gladly will with their life.

There's life experiences out there for you guys - leave the forums and go get them.

Wow such appalling ignorance Cutter, apparently you ignored the the other article right here in Morning Metaverse... "Venezuelan government shuts down internet".

So many of you liberals have absolutely no idea what you ask for, cause you have no idea what it's like outside your basement and lofty ideals. Go join the forces, do something for our country, experience the world, and come back wise. Or... just keep typing ignorance on useless forums and whine about being jobless or something, or waste your mommys money on drinking in college and keep on complaining!

The problem is most people don't want some old IP repackaged into whatever appears to be 'the new fad'.

So when Thief becomes Assassins Creed meets Batman Arkham Asylum, we have no interest - we expect nothing more than 'an improvement on the already fantastic formula' with new assets and some twists to make it stand on it's own.

And if they cannot do that, then don't try to fool us by using the IP.

I agree with you Nethead, I don't think consoles need them either. However I don't play consoles for any reason other than casual.

I was speaking about what 'acceptable' settings PC users should expect since he stated a benchmark, because I find 60 frames per second a hindrance when it comes to a competitive edge, fine for casual.

Well considering the Farmers Almanac is more accurate than the government 'climate scientists', I'd hope that statistic is correct -- unfortunately it's not.

If you bothered to read a bit further in that quoted wiki or do your own homework, you'd learn the US funds a far greater percentage than you'd like to pretend.

But recognize that I spoke quite specifically how the world works when it comes to "funding" research, regardless of percentages or statistics. You fly the way the government wind blows or you dry up - that doubles for our current two-facing govt...

Acceptable is whatever resolution you like at 60 fps.

Expected should be 80 FPS+ on a capable monitor..

However since the LCD replaced the CRT years ago and made everyone Hz/FPS dumb, only the old clanners or information-hungry noobs have capable monitors pumping out the required frames for a proper session.

We still hear the 'eyes can only see blah blah frames blah blah' but that is just a shining indication of raw ignorance to those in the know when it comes frames in video gaming.

I already stated your followup points long before you repeated them, so if anything you are agreeing with facts I pointed out long ago. No one is arguing their merits are they? Anyone? No, no one.

Your original statement, however, was dead wrong, even taking out "have to' still makes it a complete misconception. Please look up what 'misconception' means, then report back your findings if you have anything new to add.

This is what you said Krowen and it's 100% wrong. Hence my reply that your wrong statement is shared misconception amongst people who don't obviously know jack about the issue.

There's plenty of people who share the same misconception, 99% of them D3 fans... coincidence? Yes, please don't play PoE, stick to D3.

What misconception? The fact they have a command to fix player desyncs is real, /oos is not a misconception. The fact that people use external macros to bind this command to their skill binds to keep themselves from desyncing, is real. The fact that you can get desync'd just by playing the game normally, is real.

Chris Wilson claims this is an anti-cheat measure. They also talk specifically about desyncs and the use of /oos macros.

Interview with Chris Wilson http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8y-QFqRHoPM

For me, a lot of what Wilson talks about here is the exact reason I prefer the design choices of D3 over the design choices in PoE. But to each his own.

The difference between you and me Axis, is I don't go into PoE related threads trashing the game just to be a dick.

Feel free to look through my past posts about desync and you'll see 'your' misconception staring right at you in blue and white - you just parrot what you read and have zero experience with it. I stated plenty of times it's a problem, but it's a problem for people who have no clue how to avoid it.

And the way to avoid it has little to do with an /oos command.

And we cant totally trust scientists, you know the guys who say whatever the gov't wants them to say so they can get funding...

Then again, people like cutter have no idea how the real world works.
