The masses get bored faster, would Snowden still have been able to keep the steady flow of news going if he had stayed in the USA, if not then he would have been yesterdays news pretty fast and to be honest give it a few more months and he will be, that dude that..... He still paying the price of living in exile for the rest of his life but I guess it beats Guantanamo bay or where ever they would have whisked him off too.

Snowden and Greenwald's strategy to continuously trickle stuff out over 1.5 years has been quite genius. They've managed to keep it in the news on nearly a weekly basis since the story broke.

100% agree. A lot of people are criticizing him for this, saying that it's because he's an egomaniac. But it is the absolute best way to do it, if the intent is to effect change.

Kill the messenger - same thing as with Assange, but only the already brainwashed treat that with anything other than ridicule.

55% understand the issue, the oth 45% believe what they've been told to believe.

There used to be whistleblower protections which would have made what Snowden did completely legal, but Dubya gutted those, and started throwing whistleblowers in jail.

When the N.S.A. bald faced lied to congress Snowden realised that the system is completely corrupt and did exactly what he needed to, for his country.

he's a hero, far more of one than those who blindly obey orders because they are 'legal'.

Kind of annoying that the FW-190 is only available in the Premium Edition. A real WW2 classic, that one.

You are wrong. The sim contains the FW190 'A', a rather poor performing aircraft when you compare it to the aircraft you are thinking of. The world famous Dora, or as it is less comonly known the FW190 'D'.

The early 190A was a SUPERB aircraft, outclassing everything that flew in any air force during the period it was active.

It was so good that UK intelligence analysts wouldn't accept what pilots who encountered it were saying they were experiencing.

It's only later models of the A that were far heavier, and that the allies started introducing their new aircraft that the 190A lost the edge it had in the medium to low altitude combat band.

A bribe?

I'd say bordering on extortion.

Isn't that the norm in today's oligarchy?

Seems more like the in thing to hate on DayZ. It's the popular reaction in every thread online that mentions it.

that's because it's using the arma engine which is utter crap.

What... Sony is going to make a propaganda film like the one about Assange?

I wonder how many back doors are in Sony products? (especially considering the whole issue with the rootkits they were installing on people's PC's for DRM).

I AM SO FUCKING TIRED OF THIS ZOMBIE SHIT.
Yeah there's been a lot of zombie games lately, and people don't seem to be tired of it yet.
Zombie games are the new Modern Military Shooters

Someone needs to research the length the WWII fad on PCs ran, compared to the current zombie fad...


I'm tired of the Nazi shit - we have countries doing things TODAY that are as abhorrent yet nothing is said - shouldn't it be more important to address the evil of today than ignore it and focus on the evil of a generation that is mostly already dead?

Good

IL-2 series are the best ww2 flight sims eva.

Except Cliffs of Dover which was absolutely unacceptable on release and is barely acceptable now.

True, but Modders fixed it. Its in tip top shape now.

Fixed or improved? I haven't touched any of the mods.

The things that made it unplayable for me were:
Constant crashes
FSAA not working
The 'rowboat effect' (ie graphics stutter) when using ati xfire
invisible planes
net code just being absolutely horrendous
AI issues

Were these addressed?

Thanks!

hmm.. seems to be that crowdfunders think they are paying for development of the thing they give money for (ie a product), only for increasing portions of the money to be used for all sorts of extra stuff like posh offices and non developmental related things.

I dunno, I for one welcome our Dark Lord Zuckermountain and will buy the consumer version of Eyeface or whatever it will be called eventually. I dont give a shit about the faceshaft, enterprising modders will make sure it works with my favorite simulation of choice. (The developer kit support is coming in the next patch in any case)

...and facebook will not create any DRM whatsoever to ensure that they don't retain control of their product.

I'm sure 0.0000000000001% of people who have the technical expertise and patience to get it running in a handful of non drm'd apps still won't be able to play online with the other 99.9999999999999% of users who don't.

Usual story - some people see trees and are oblivious to the forest.

Facebook is not trustworthy.

innovation <> always online drm or drm of any sort, private data mining, metadata collection of any type, microtransactions, games not working on release (looking at YOU EA) and the dearth of games that are NEVER completed.

Facebook is the public face of privatized illegal spying.

Was too far away from Elder Scrolls for my liking. It lost everything that made Skyrim awesome.

I would have been satisfied with simple cooperative multiplayer - but this isn't it - and not looking to pay additional monthly fees to play something inferior.

gone from must have to ah shit.

Is it just me, or has all the cool computer stuff (capabilities, personal communication etc) over the past 30 years become monetized, tools of surveillance and utterly zero data privacy.

Spying Scare?

It's a scare?

yeah no - ask Michael Hastings how much of a "scare" it is - oh you can't. He died in a car accident after his car blew up when it hit a tree (despite security footage showing the car on fire before hitting the tree) shortly before he was going to break a story on the CIA and had been speaking to Wikileaks.

It should terrify ANY person of conscience that has communicated to anyone on corporate or governmental criminality in the past decade.

Security footage knows no such thing, and his closest friends and family feel that this was entirely an accident due to a massive manic episode he was having, but don't let any of that stop you and your "facts" that have no evidence.

http://lmgtfy.com/?q=michael+hastings+car+explodes+before+impact+footage

It amazes me how people are so willing to trust government, regardless of what declassified information and history have shown us and race to defend against anything saying otherwise.

That's Congitive Dissonance for you, so I shouldn't really be that amazed.

It's easier to think that witnesses didn't see what they did, evidence that exists isn't real, and the laws of physics only apply some of the time.

I really do like however that people are starting to catch on over the last decade and have started applying critical thinking and have learnt that the mainstream media never, ever, tells us the truth.

Cheers
