Yeah, I waited to buy DCS: Black Hawk

DCS Blackshark

$60 for what amounts to a military grade training simulation isn't bad.

Did they ever fix all the problems of the engine?

Meh, After the BF3 trailer yesterday, I think I will pass on this. Or bargain bin at most.

Pity the whole BF series is utter crap.

Oh FFS - what a stupid premise.

Something more believable is another Civil war between the Libertarians who want freedom, and the Neocons and their brainwashed supporters who want to enslave them.

general philosophy:

cash in on holiday rush
ship product in non-working state
don't assign sufficient back end resources to support the game online
deny any problems exist
fix parts, break others
release micro-transaction addons that give people who pay an advantage
release the same crap with +1 to the name

No - I hopped off that merry go round..

No suprise when you consider that young adults - having been exposed to internet media - understands that TV in North America especially is nothing but propaganda and distraction.

There's no 'News' on television, just 'Newsy' stuff.

yep, good old facebook - putting faces to digital identities so we can all be identified when we say things the government doesn't like (ie the truth).

yep - now the NSA will be able to link people's faces with their emails - and hence their identities.

1984 and Brave New World were tame compared to what they're actually trying to do to us.

hmm.. "in its current state A-10C Warthog is very much a Beta product and there are quite a few bugs to still stomp out".

I wonder how many of those bugs are ones that have carried over from past iterations of this engine that we've been dealing with ever since... Flanker2.

I am not confident that all that much has changed in attitude on part of the developer - but hopefully this product will prove me wrong.

This sounds like a griefers paradise. How many obnoxious atheists are going to sign up just annoy the Christians incessantly?

Unlikely any - religion is something the religious care about - not aetheists.

Have you ever been here for a religious discussion? (Take a look at this thread to see the vitriol a simple Bible game announcement generates) I have a hard time believing that the atheists and anti-religious posters here "don't care about religion". Religiously themed topics will often exceed a hundred posts, and the majority of those are NOT by Christians or religious people from what I've seen.

As pretentious as Christians usually are, they have nothing on the militant atheist crowd, who constantly drub you over the head with their opinions whether they are on topic or not.

Militant aetheists? I've never heard of such a thing.

I look at today's news and modern history and I see Militant Zionism in the Israeli murder, theft and ethnic cleansing of Palestine (not to mention Israel's attack on the US during 9/11, their attack on the USS Liberty, their bombing of the Marine Barracks in Lebanon and their complete control of the US government), Militant Christianity being used within the military in the US invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq to foster hatred for the people who live in the countries invaded.

I don't see any invasions or mass murders in the name of aetheism, only religion.

I think the average aetheist would simply like to finish dinner without having to answer the door when some christian group comes a-knockin after being told to go away repeatedly. God's telemarketers, you can never get rid of

Borderlands is the best FPS in a long time imo.

You must be playing some other version. I found it to be repetitive, clunky and a big disappointment.

Did they ever fix the net code so no firewall mappings and other fiddling is required?

TF2 is still the best multiplayer FPS out there. Simply a masterpiece.

I go to metacritic and look for the lowest scores - and read why the rater gave them a low score.

I find that in these days of developer and publisher dishonesty, fanboyism and just plain cluelessness the only place I can find an accurate take on a game is to look at the reasons for low scores and determine if the reasons mentioned are reasonable.

Definitely the final nail in Longbow2's coffin... Smash

GETTING longbow2 running on modern hardware is the nail in its coffin - not this product.
