This is actually the problem in our county. You guys cheer your side like a sports team. Meanwhile, both sides are for whatever makes them money and keeps them in power. And you're all so fired up fighting over whose side is better that you can't see them laughing at you.

Well said. And Cutter that last post was not true in so many ways. How can democrats be for working people and small business when they support for bailouts, endless military wars, wars on drugs, wars on piracy, pursue continuous cronyism under the guise of 'consumer protection', proceed in unprecedented inflationary spending, etc etc.. The list goes on. Democrats are part of this fascist system of tyranny. Not all, but most. Same with nearly all Republicans.

It's not about collective identity at all. Be it Democrat or republican. It's about the individual representatives, their actions and their hiding under the collective party association blanket for protection.

I can not wait to play this game! I'm looking forward to it more than Diablo 3.
I was a big fan of those Dungeon Master/Eye of the Beholder games. Hopefully this game will be wildly successful and we'll see more dungeon crawls in the future.
I'll need to pick up a pad of graph paper, because I plan on playing in hardcore mode.

Well said, sir. Ditto.

If I didn't read about it, I wouldn't have believed it possible.

Suffice to say, I've never had a boss even nearly like Notch, that's for damn sure.
There are profit sharing companies that essentially do something similar. The employees often own stock thats not available to the public and share in profits if they make some. Often they get shares along with their paycheck, so the employees are more invested in wanting and trying to have their company succeed.

But yes, he didn't have to do that and its incredibly generous.

Yeah it's both generous and good business. Good for morale, good PR, good way to motivate new talent to want to work for him, etc etc.. This is good business. It's very capitalistic and anti-socialist to reward employees for good company performance.

Completely ridiculous. Nobody 'loses' an idea. It gets picked up elsewhere first and then you have sore losers.
I'm so sick of hearing about this sort of rhetoric but it never ceases.

I've just sent them some suggestions on how to link cyber 'terrorism' with 'saving the children!' Save Africa soon to follow.

You just hit a nerve with me.
Bloom(along with bad FoV)is so entirely over used today it's rocketed WAY past the retard watermark.
I picked up Syndicate, and the over use of bloom(understatement)is so beyond stupid it borders on abuse, it's also forced me to ponder how idiotic game designers are today.

There appears to be absolutely no vision for the end product, a complete lack of common sense, and just plain laziness in game development today.

I'm thinking they use excessive bloom to hide the outdated graphics hardware of the consoles. It's cheap make-up. Also the narrow FOV helps performance on consoles.

Should do a video review next time

Video reviews are a lot of work. I have, however, started recording one gameplay video for each game that I review. For WEE, I did two: one for multiplayer and one for the campaign.

Great! Thank you! Thanks for the review, too.

They can't retrieve them and waste how many millions of dollars of taxpayer money? Each one costs how much?

Guesstimate - 3,000 X $1000= $3 million.

And this is truly important to the economy, as studies have shown that almost all of the net job growth in this country is coming from internet startups.

This is one reason why the economy isn't creating jobs. Corporatism causes much human suffering.

White House announces new privacy "Bill of Rights," Do Not Track agreement.

Hypocrites. As if they really care about our privacy with regards to DHS, IRS or the NSA. Why don't they implement these as enforceable guidelines for themselves first? These aren't true rights anyway. They are entitlements.

This is Internet regulation dressed up in flowery propaganda.

This is so much better than the FEAR games were for me. What was that other indie spook game that came out about a year ago? Not as good as this.

Disagree completely. Amnesia is head and shoulders above this. I played Alan Wake on the xbox and though it was a fun little horror game no way it came close to the immersion and sheer terror of Amnesia.

Maybe you're right but I don't see it. Amnesia screamed low budget to me. AW has very, very nice outdoor areas. Even the indoor areas have lots of attention to detail. The acting is vastly better. The story is told far better. Production values are far beyond Amnesia. Maybe my expectations were low with AW, and too high with Amnesia.

With Amnesia, I think i got a a couple hours beyond the ghost splashing in the flooded basement. It just didn't grab me. Some areas had 1998 graphics, too. When Amnesia's story was supposed to be at the forefront, it felt like I got a "BOO! mysterious cliffhanger!" instead of story. I remember the ghost in the hole in the wall coming across as very b movie. You sure you aren't still wearing your beer goggles?

edit: sure ADD may be more scary. AW isn't that scary. But IMO it's a better game.

I'm enjoying this game a whole lot. Love the Pacific Northwest setting, the national forest/park setting is very well executed. The gun work is satisfying and the enemies are fun to fight. This is so much better than the FEAR games were for me. What was that other indie spook game that came out about a year ago? Not as good as this.

GMG has it 33% discounted - http://www.greenmangaming.com/promo/awake/

Also, I find the graphics to be a step above Skyrim. So many story centric games fail to engage me but this actually enhances the whole atmosphere and makes the game even better.
