I've seen a trailer of this game, for some reason, and I gotta ask: Who the fuck wants this game anyway?

"Ben Kerry?" Interesting choice of names, given that former presidential candidate John Kerry is a decorated soldier with three purple hearts.
I don't get a sense of what the mission or story is beyond "Country X is in turmoil." I haven't picked this up yet, since I was waiting for the SP game. I guess I'll have to wait a bit more for a review to see if the missions are any good.

I feel a lot more tired of modern shooters than I ever did of WW2 ones, although that may be because of the way they're made rather than their setting (or because I'm getting old but I'd rather not focus on that).
I never got my money's worth from BF3 because of the unlock system and I won't be buying BF4 because of this. Aside from the annoyance of not getting to play with the toys I've paid for, the unlock system affects the balance.
Being worse than everyone else is an occupational hazard when you don't play that game or ones like it very much but to be worse than everyone else and have worse gear and no kill streak bonuses and so on - this adds injury to insult by actively disadvantaging me.

waaah I don't get all the unlocks right off the bat, I can't compete, so damn entitled some of you.
The married men among you know what I mean when I say it's hard to eek out even a small win an argument like this with one's wife, but a resounding victory like this is pretty unprecedented.
I dont care what they bring out cos they wont release a map editor, whats the point in playing same old maps that have been remade over and over.

Got this baby preloaded. I'm mainly curious about controller support. Playing BF3 with a controller on the pc was odd. Some of the functions outside of the game weren't mapped at all so I felt like I needed to go back to my mouse between spawns.
I really hope this time you can play BF4 on the pc with a controller without any problems. I realize aiming will be harder and other players might have an advantage, I don't care. I've always liked doing the less twitchy things like planting mines and c4 and then blowing people up as they drive by

Eliminating loopholes and exceptions is still seen as a tax increase. The "never raise my taxes ever for any reason" folks (and they're not just the ultra-wealthy) will fight any increase in the tax amount they pay regardless of where it comes from. In their mind the only direction taxes can go is down.

Hmm.. So the choice is:
Romney: Filters Porn
Obama: Bankrupts my children, Erodes the constitution, Welfare World.
Hmm ya I'll take the porn filtration please.
You mean Reagan's taxcuts bankrupt your children, unless they're born millionaires already.
Reagan hasn't been president in how long now? Shit the guy is dead. Liberal answer to everything Tax the rich! How bout we cut some f'in spending? K thx.
1) You're talking about two different problems. "Do your feet hurt? Wear a hat!" I have no problem with reducing spending from the proper areas
2) I am not particularly liberal, but go figure, someone that fits a political profile exactly thinks everyone that disagrees with them must be the enemy
3) Yeah, Reagan is dead. No president has fixed his mistakes. Democrat or Republican. They've all kept the problems
4) Lacking taxation on the rich is a huge issue. We have a monumental wealth inequality strangling our economy. People are ridiculous about it, though. "But they're job creators!" No they aren't. CEOs made 29 times what the average employee made in 1978. Today, after we've cut taxes on the rich, they make 351 times. How? Why? Because, rather than create more jobs, they've cut costs (American jobs) and pocketed that money. Allowing the ultra wealthy to earn an unlimited amount doesn't cause them to create jobs, it causes them to find ways to earn more money! It's not hard - no one likes sharing wealth, so if people are given the option not to then they won't! This leads to the giant wealth inequality we have, which in turn leads to too few people having too much of the money, which in turn leads to an overall reduction in spending because people don't have the cash to spend, which leads to the economy dropping, etc.
Not sure why people that whine about how sharing the wealth is communist think that the ultra rich would willingly share the wealth rather than build their own bank accounts...

Cool, there's a documentary on wildlife in the Chernobly on PBS atm. They're showing the Pripiyat right now, but I don't see any Stalkers or artifacts. That's odd.

You ain't kiddin', nin. If you don't like searing heat and blinding sun 99.8% of daylight hours, then the south (and especially FL) are definitely off the list. I've been here in FL since 1993 and I'll be damned if I ever consider this my home. Born and raised in NW NJ and that will always be home.

No surprise here. You'd get more fair-minded and logical results asking white people in the deep south what they think of Obama.

So which is it? Obama appointed all corporate hacks or Obama appointed all lifelong government employees?
I've now heard both.

Not so different. One has a master's in business administration, the other in philosophy. Both became leaders in their area of the world, both travel a lot. Your opinion of one or the other is what seperates them from each other. Rule your mind.
And Carter was still better than any other republican president. Just like Clinton he inherited the mess of 2 republican presidents before him
