The MPAA can and will fine theaters and retailers for selling inappropriate product to minors, but like I said it isn't strictly enforced. The ESRB doesn't enforce the ratings they impose.

In case you misread me, I was agreeing with your implicit point and calling Fang out for playing semantic games.

Actually, it is different, no one is proposing any penalties for R-rated movies.

You're right Fang, it is different, since movies are not video games. What he meant to say, however, is that it's analogous.

Maybe Australians like government to be omnipresent in their lives but Americans don't. We happen to have a national value called liberty. As such we are extremely reluctant to cede control over our own lives to the national government, especially when it's an area the government doesn't need to control such as video game sales.

If I rolled my eyes any further, I'd be staring at the back of my head.

Dark City and The Matrix were similar thematically, but The Matrix wasn't "stolen" from Dark City any more than it was stolen from Plato's Cave. There was a woman, though, who sued the Wachowski brothers, claiming that they had stolen her idea. Her screenplay had something to do with a third eye or something. I recall that the suit seemed frivolous and didn't appear to be going anywhere. I'm sure you can google it.

Coming from games where you can lean around corners, aim down iron sights, go prone, plus the terrain is filled with bushes and rocks and all the little details that make it look real, stepping into the Source world is a big letdown.

Pretty much none of those things are limitations of the engine.

It's frozen on me twice now, looping a sound clip. HL2 never did that. Weird.

Wow, that went downhill fast. This thread is a nice textbook example of the Greater Internet Fuckwad Theory, though.

Good job, guys. Now somebody compare someone else to Hitler.

I agree they should do a better job, but a change log? It's not going to happen.

I don't know what you're talking about. Plenty of patch releases have changelogs. Search bluesnews.com for "changelog."

I'm not sure if you're joking, but WWI ended in 1918, and the mod in question is called BF 1918. I don't know where Blue got 1928.

Yes it does in DoD Source. It does not in SS2. Maybe this is why they used the term "Rendering" following the HDR...but its not HDR if its not dynamic...

It still sounds like you're misusing it. Dynamic range is the distance between the highest and lowest possible values for luminance that can be represented. Having a high dynamic range means there is a larger number of values, providing the "overbright" effect visible in HDR. It doesn't mean "dynamic" in the same sense as dynamic lighting, which is lighting that is calculated in real time.

It's laughable that they even call it HDR Rendering because it's definitely not "dynamic". For those that don't know HDR Lighting = High Dynamic Rendering Lighting.

You're confused about the terminology. HDR stands for "High Dynamic Range." In this case, dynamic range is referring to the difference between the maximum and minimum values possible for a parameter, which in this case is luminance. It sounds like you're using it to mean "changing on the fly," which it doesn't.

You mean "acronym", not "abbreviation".

Strictly speaking, it's neither; it's actually an initialism. Acronyms are pronounceable, like NASA and laser.

Acronyms: http://www.bartleby.com/68/8/108.html
Initialism: http://www.bartleby.com/68/88/3288.html

MeatFarts, the use of "a" or "an" is totally dependent on pronunciation, not spelling. MMOG is an initialism that's pronounced "Em em oh gee," so "an" is the correct definite article. If the author wanted to write out "Massively multiplayer online game," he would, and he'd use "a" to precede it.

Whether it's Hillary or Pat Robertson, idealogues and bigots aren't any less contemptible just becasue they wrap themselves up in The Flag and claim they talk to God.

Oh, is Hillary doing that these days? What a ridiculous comparison. The whole "I'm smarter because I realize that both sides are equally bad" schtick is rarely convincing.

I like how I can put in a little right wing twist though and everyone goes into a tizzy, you guys helped make me laugh today, I needed that.

In other words, you like to troll? Did you think saying something like that was a good way to save face?

I'm not sure why you all think that the guns are too inaccurate. I have no problems hitting people in BF2.
