my personal favorite of morricone's work: The Mission
also: Ecstasy of gold

The Ecstasy of Gold will be one of those few songs, where even if you don't get what its from or ever watched the movie it was played in, it still has this greatness to it. You can close your eyes while listening, and it conjures up a very distinct feeling, like the music leading right up to a final boss battle.

The gov't can't refuse to give someone a driver's license because they are gay, but a bakery can refuse to make them a wedding cake. If that bakery loses customers but decides it would rather do that than bake a cake for gays, it can.

Actually, that cake company can't. Gays (and blacks and women and handicapped people and Jews, etc.) are part of protected classes. And service cannot be refused on the basis of being a protected class by law. Although in the Masterpiece Cakeshop case, the "religious exemption" won, this was due to the Colorado Civil Right Commission denigrating the religion in their reasoning for dinging the cakeshop. The "Protected Classes" laws still stands, and as long as local courts and commissions treat religions neutrally, they'll still be able to go after businesses that refuse service to protected classes.

That whole thing struck me as kind of a weird thing. They wanted a wedding cake baked, which the baker denied due to his religion, but offered to still sell them other goods, which they didn't want, and they left.
So which "Protected Class" would take priority in that instance? Because Religion is also protected in that list, and you can't really force someone to create art.

People who are easily offended and favor the banning of ideas and symbols should realize that bans actually serve to make that which is banned more attractive--not less attractive. It's the forbidden fruit syndrome--and it's human nature. Bans often create more curiosity and interest as opposed to less.

If you become a Nazi because a video game didn't let you role play a Nazi, you were absolutely going to become a Nazi, anyway.

Don't think that's the point WaltC was trying to make.
A better example might be in music, for bands such as KISS. When they came out, loads of Christian Fundies started proclaiming it was 'Devil music', and should be banned for their theatrics, that their name meant 'Knights in Satan's Service', etc.. And KISS themselves really didn't come out to say anything otherwise, cuz Simmons knew it would sell. They protested Black Sabbath and Ozzy Ozzbourne, and they became known as one of the founding Metal bands after people started listening to them. Or the whole 'Parental Advisory' sticker in the 80s when rap and hard rock was blossoming out. Sales for most albums that had that sticker went up.

People will be curious about things deemed forbidden by others. All the context is necessary for them to understand why it was deemed as such.

If someone plays a game where you are in the role of a Nazi [which I think at this point, the only ones are multiplayer PVP games, really], and you end up becoming one, I doubt it was the game that gave that final validating push. I mean, hell, didn't we already have that whole schtick purported before?

Let me get this straight.. SS runes were not banned before this?
What would make you think that?

Oh, just that the US wrote it into law to ban it in Germans laws... you know, way back when...
Sorta kinda like US pressured Japan about indecency laws after the war that carry over today in their blurring out of genitals in media including porn... and in the USA we never got any laws like that

And that's how we got tentacle porn.

Beat the first two back in highschool (93/94). I really wish they'd make a dungeon crawler like that again. I tried the two Grimrock games, beat them, and liked them, but they had no real story or suspense. The beauty about EOB2, especially, was that there was suspense and mystery and seeing the last boss' 2nd form...that was a big deal then.

I never felt that kind of connection with grimrock.

Only reason I played Grimrock.. was because it was the closest I've gotten to Stonekeep.
What about Dungeon Siege?

Played that when it came out. Whole different playstyle, but still enjoyable. Pretty sure if I won the lotto, I'd just work my way back on games I enjoy from now till the early 90's. So many games, yet ADULT. MUST ADULT.

BTW

SWBF2 is the best game of the bunch, I have more than 3400 hours in it, it's super fun.

Just dropped a 199-5 an hour ago with a 124 kill-streak kicker

check the player ranks (to right of their names), there's a lot of nooblets playing right now. Thank you steam! rofl.

Almost considered getting it... but then I remembered I try to avoid anything related to EA. Glad others are enjoying it, though.

Resistance is definitely something I don't think we'll get past, unless we figure out some kind of 'smart clothing', like the impact vests and such, but on a much more elaborate scale... but I've been seeing more of the home-made solenoid-style additions to controllers being printed and designed. We're not going to get 'I swing, hit, and am unable to swing past due to resistance', but we can get to 'I swing, hit, and felt the hit.'

Unfortunately, most of those kinds of mods for controllers tend to make things a bit heavier, so people might come up with all sorts of new ways to get further immersion.

I could do with an Arx Fatalis VR Remake. Combat was slow enough for it, and still somewhat enjoyable, even if you did bob back and forth to get those hits in. The magic system would work perfect in VR as well.

It sounds like they're mainly complaining about auto-aim, so turning that down sounds liek the right solution. Or add some projectile weapons that require leading the target (where auto-aim doesn't have anything to lock onto). I remember playing TF2, good rocket placement was important, and sometimes that meant aiming for spots between people so they both got splash damage, etc.

Spinfusor from Tribes 2. Hell. Most of the guns in that game were projectile-based.
...need to reinstall and faff about in that game again. Was fun.

Damnit. I was looking forward to this one. Not so sure, now.

Especially after seeing all the strides they've made for the SS1 remake. Which means if that did well, we could have gotten a SS2 remake, and all the Bioshock fans would see where the inspiration came from.

Don't know too much about Tencent, but I've not heard great things about them. Nowhere near as much as I've heard about our own dumpsterfires known as EA and a few others...

Definitely a fun game, but I've only got one person I play with from time to time. So many 4-player co-op games, so few other friends that want to bother with them. Eh.

Though I really hope they start giving better sound queues to the enemies. Some of those bastards make little to no noise and then you're suddenly being attacked.
Which seems weird, given you'd think any noise in a cavern would be echoed a fair bit.
