Steam page is messed up.
If you have a controller plugged in there is no way that I could find to only use mouse and keyboard, which means I couldn't use the mouse in menu's and all the controls on screen were coming up as controller buttons.

This guy is tripping balls. The end cut scene will probably have him surrounded by dead humans in a cafe because he thinks they are bugs.

That was the intro to Batman Arkham Knight

Yeah but cat's don't hike, they squat.

And I'm too afraid to google to see if there is a mod for that.

I never played much of the 1st one. There is a part where you have to break into a prison, and you have the option of torturing a guy in a really awesome scene. But I never would have come across it if I didn't do some googling. Granted I may be older but it would have been nice to get some sorta hint about being able to do that, and question is did I miss out on some other really awesome scene?

So true.This is why Obama and Hillary have very low approval ratings with the military. Both are clueless on how to defeat the enemy.

And what form would "defeating the enemy" take exactly?

Take Trump's advice and kill the families of anyone known to associate with ISIS and/or conduct air strikes on populated areas without regard for civilian casualties? I know this may come as a shock, but the anger you feel when American or European civilians are targeted and killed is not unique to you: when American bombs level a wedding, or a hospital, or Muslim civilians are otherwise killed -- inadvertently or not -- you create a new group of angry young men willing to die to return the favor.

Should we reinvade Iraq and push on into Syria? The Islamic State was born out of Al Qaeda in Iraq. Specifically, when we killed Abu Musab Al-Zarqawi in an air strike in 2006, his deputy, the future self-proclaimed "Caliphate" Al-Baghdadi, assumed control of Al-Qaeda in Iraq, subsequently renamed it the Islamic State in Iraq, and then relocated it to Syria after the Sunni Awakening made it too difficult to continue conduct operations in the Sunni heartland in Iraq, i.e. Fallujah, Ramadi, etc. In other words, we already spent a significant amount of time putting boots on the ground to fight these guys and we don't have much to show for it. If we reinvade to "defeat the enemy", ISIS will just do what it did when it was called Al-Qaeda in Iraq: not face our ground forces directly, dissolve into the civilian populace, leverage local resentment against being occupied by a foreign power to build a base of support, and then conduct insurgency operations against our forces until eventually we leave again and they can reemerge.

The reality is that there's no easy way to "defeat the enemy". If there was we would do it now, or we would have done it during the first invasion and occupation. Short of discarding the Geneva Convention and the Laws of War and just killing every man, woman, and child in the shitty countries involved, we're just going to have to learn to live with the fact that we are not omnipotent, and that defeating an enemy like ISIS will be long-term and low-intensity. We can either scale our efforts accordingly, or not, but we can't pretend that just thumping our chest a bit harder will make the bad men go away.

Very informative Scottish, thank you.
Question... what if we just up and left, or didn't play 'World Police' in the first place? Nothing against the men and women of the military (thank you for your service and sacrifice), but is the US Government stirring up hornet's nest that we shouldn't have even been around in the first place, and as you mentioned, we are getting retaliation from other countries for doing so?

It will take many more senseless deaths and a smart politician before we get gun laws similar to Australia.

That's the sad thing. Somewhere there has to be a number or line crossed before it happens.

Now watch Hillary spin this.

Question is... this guy was interviewed by the FBI multiple times. Doesn't matter for what, but if the FBI has had multiple visits shouldn't that person be on some sorta list of 'Hey.. he wants to buy a gun... maybe we need to take a closer look at this, or restrict him from being able to'.

Hillary's tweet:
"To the LGBT community: please know that you have millions of allies across our country. I am one of them.” —Hillary

Trump's tweet:
What has happened in Orlando is just the beginning. Our leadership is weak and ineffective. I called it and asked for the ban. Must be tough

Your choice in a nutshell.

Hillary is a lying douchebag c**t of a magnitude that it makes all the republican candidates for president that have been around since I was born look like angels. She has been anti-gay since at least 2002. She is a master manipulator (just like Trump) and she is very dangerous. If she turned and looked at a camera and explained how she was going to rule the world House of Cards style; I wouldn't be surprised.

Still praying the FBI brings charges against her and she looses the democratic nomination because we are fucked with whoever wins the presidency.

As for Anti-Gun.... I am pro-gun, but at the same time I believe there needs to be limits on what you can and cannot purchase, and how many weapons a person should be allowed to own. I also believe that there should be a much stricter standard for purchasing guns.

Someone who's been on this website for a very long time was directly affected by the shitty gun laws we have today, in a circumstance that could have ended just as badly as the shooting in Orlando.

They did give away all the DLC in their defense, and it's still a good game.

That being said... Bishop+Shogo=gets chills.


And after watching the Multiplayer one.... gotta say... getting that good old Tribes vibe from it

So Kevin Spacey is in the tank?
It looks good, if Michael Bay directed a WWI movie. And did I finally see the HD Red Dead Redemption game I've been begging for since I got rid of my 360?

But watching the attack on that Zeppelin makes me want 2143 and Titan mode so much more.

And that's your right as an American but you do realise that ISIS and groups like them want exactly that? They aren't killing Westerners to get us to like what they want to represent, they do it to get us to hate what they want to represent. Trump is a gift to them and people reacting like Cutter are their puppets.


Shooter was interviewed by the FBI on several occasion's over the last 3 years, and was able to purchase a gun used in the shooting last week. W.T.F.

There is NOTHING beyond his name and the color of his skin to suggest it. Any fucktard with internet access can "praise the attack" but not a single group has claimed the attack as their own.

ISIS claimed responsibility for it and it was well known prior to your posting. Do some research moron.

1) ISIS can claim responsibility for whatever the fuck it wants, after the fact. That doesn't mean it actually had anything to do with it.

2) ISIS did not claim responsibility.

3) This guy did apparently proclaim loyalty to ISIS, per CNN.

Thank you.

People like you are what's wrong with America. Judge first, ask questions later. Please DO go vote for Trump if you are so fucking blinded by racism and hate before you even know all the facts. Trump won the primary because there are too many fucking sheep in this country that need a reason to be angry/hateful/fearful. If you want to be spoon fed lies and bullshit, and anything else that 'just sounds right' regardless of how wrong it is, please go vote Trump.

Only 15 seconds but it looks pretty awesome so far.

And Battlefront is visual/audio masterpiece, but hands-on time proved to be something else entirely.

I expect this to be closer to BF3/4 than Battefront, especially given the source material.

Yes but also Battlefront 1/2 had a great system that worked well and the 2nd game was expanded further to make it better.
Hardlines used BF3/4's system and was a failure due to being a high priced mod with not enough unique features.
So what will they do with BF1? That's what I want to know.

At the same time, deer's don't load carry weapons and head to the nearest grocery/meat store and kill everyone in it as well.

Honestly I don't give a flying fuck about the shooter's race or religion, the problem is that any fucktard with an idea in his head can get a gun.
Neighbor across the street is 22 or 23, has mental issues (is untreated by his choice for panic attacks and anxiety issues), has worked 3 weeks in his entire life, has a conceal and carry license, owns about 20 guns his dad bought him over the years, sits in his grandmothers attic arguing on the internet all day, and when he goes around the house has to be armed (including cooking fucking potatoes one day with a revolver in a fanny pack on his sholder/arm).
Now where is the fucking database that says 'Hey this guy has been to the ER multiple times but owns guns and has a conceal and carry license but doesn't work and has never worked in a job that would require it?
