He's not the first person I've heard give this advice. My sister recently graduated nursing school and she has also brought up that they're teaching that it slows the healing of wounds now and causes scars.

I don't use it on wounds simply because I don't have it around. Water has always worked fine for me.

Well if you don't go trekking a whole lot you might have a different view on this whole topic, water is heavy, all I take with me is coffee in thermos .. thermos? is that really a word? Personally I would rather have a way to stop the bleeding and disinfect in an emergency without danger of knocking myself out from pain. Which is what would happen if you pour soap solution into an open bleeding wound. (not that you would have that with you when you go take 10hour walks through forest and plain landscape, all I have is those disinfectant cleaning wipes)

H2O2 is an emergency wound treatment, my beef with the video is that he says to use soap instead. One can only assume he has never seen anyone who tried that. (this is the part where the video is scientifically misleading)

Soap in a wound = pain and agony *6000 -> KO -> Dead

Btw, all that aside, the best wound treatment is obviously avoiding wounds altogether.

That Hydrogen Peroxide video is factually and scientifically completely misleading. ;(

Okay I'll bite. What did you disagree with?

Simple, when you have the option of not cleaning an open wound + bandage or 3% h2o2 + bandage, guess which choice is the far better one... what is the result of telling people not to use h2o2.. they'll use tap water. And tap water is full of shit. Literally while tap water WILL lead to infection, h2o2 will not EVER lead to a worse outcome than the wound you already have, except that wound now can't get infected if you bandage it after h2o2 cleansing.

So his advice is what? To stand there with a gashing wound until emergency service arrives? To clean a cut under tap water and then bandage it?

My disagreement here is that this is a misleading video that can lead to injury and death because people will always have the urge to clean a wound. They use what they have, and most people have h2o2.. exactly because it is an absolutely amazing surface disinfectant... and when you have someone in panic mode, they grab whatever they find, and if they grab h2o2, at least they won't make their situation any worse.

I guess I have a different view here because I make extremely long walks into the forests here, 3% (100ml) h2o2, small (100ml) bottle of clean water and gauze is in my emergency backpack. And hey, in case of a zombie apocalypse that would really help

And btw, in the video he says to use soap to clean a bleeding wound. This is scientifically wrong. You use soap you have a good chance of knocking yourself out from the pain...

To sum it up, maliciously misleading video.

Said no one.. ever Hopefully most of it is optional....

I'd rather have combat be optional as well, but as long as it doesn't break the flow of the game and is well integrated, then it's not a deal breaker for me.

Yeah that's what I meant, but if I can't play through 100% non lethal I am not gonna bother My Faith is not a cold blooded murderer ^1^

Climbing passages? Do you mean "platforming?" Because that's kind of the whole point of the series.

Also, a lot of people really liked the combat in ME. It was definitely more compelling than running around in circles while guys with assault rifles shoot at you.

I wanted to give you a witty response but I guess climbing passages is easy to misunderstand I mean the part where you spend 5 minutes hanging to pipes and .. other stuff, not moving in any particular direction but sideways through vents and internal piping. Ie. The worst level in ME ;p

Imo this "game" is a classic example of a game engine looking for a real game... like Spore, just a teensy bit prettier and more ambitious.. at being a pointless sandbox.

wtf is it with games not bothering to have textures on their polygons these days?

Plenty of textures there.. just not very detailed for the most part, might just be their style choice...

If Brazil is pissed at this, they probably never read the test results of their so called "water", which is sewage by European definition. Yes, literally untreated sewage. It isn't water at all. You are not supposed to even SWIM in it. And if you do, you are supposed to immediately clean yourself... ask yourself this, who calls something like that water !

I have a feeling that this will be a mediocre game, maybe they can prove me wrong on that but we'll see.

I really hope not, they have built a pretty rich universe and, for me anyway, enjoyable gameplay. I really hope they don't eff this up.

I don't have that feeling, I expect a pretty solid game.

Same here, more Mass Effect is always good

The problem is that if you had any idea how game development works you'd not be surprised at this at all.... even decent indy devs can end up running themselves against a rock, feature creeping and never ending up with a fun product that's worthy to be released. Game development isn't a science where you mix ideas and suddenly they produce a fun game out of thin air once you input X amount of money.... and "street cred" means jack shit nowadays. The digital sales landscape has drastically changed the past 2 years.

What you say and mean is total nonsense. Just because you don't like crowdfunding games we should wipe these above mentioned games out of existence or what? Because that would have been the result had your oppinion any sway in gamer communities (thankfully most of us are old enough to know what patience means, and we don't cry over 20$ lost on 1 project of 20 ,p)

Btw, FIG and all those other platforms that are not KS and indiegogo are another matter imo.

With all due respect there's a huge difference between patience and expectation. My patience is based on the expectation of what the company pitches to me (the backer), what they say to the media, and in dev videos. I can assure you that my reaction to crowdfunding and early access is a product of their failure to deliver on their promises.

It's based on experience. Every single project I backed has yet to be fully released. I've backed non game projects like an animated series called Hullabaloo; created by former Disney animation professionals. If a few of these projects missed their target date or were released late I wouldn't mind, but virtually all of them have done this proving to me that for the most part crowdfunding is a dismal failure. Basically the only thing that I backed that turned out to be successful was MADE, a video game museum in Oakland, California. They were raising funds to keep their museum open for the next few years.

I really appreciate your point of view on this matter but you have to understand something. When someone is repeatedly lied to, taken for a sucker, not given what they paid for according to the pitch eventually this erodes trust. When these pitch people make promises to potential backers they better deliver. So until I see more evidence of companies actually delivering on their promises I stand by what I said. I will not back crowdfunded or buy early access games.

I always respect your opinion I know you had a ton of bad experiences, and I can't blame you for being doubtful of the whole system, but for many of us we had no such thing. I didn't back a single thing (yet) that didn't deliver exactly what was promised (for Star Citizen I am suspecting I get way more, and maybe something different, than I ever wanted). Sure the time-frame was out of whack often, but I worked on enough indy games to know that a sudden increase in scope (or the discovery that what you made SUCKS) can completely wreck your entire timeplan.

The problem is, it seems, that you funded projects you really wanted to come to fruition that severely understated the money they needed and thus are always at the fringe of collapse. $80,000USD for Hullabaloo for example threw up all the red flags for me. There is no way you make animated hand-drawn (whatever that means) movie for 80k -tax -fee.. so they got 470k.. but imo that is still only half to a third of that they really had needed.

Basically I can understand you though. If I had such a bad streak I would not crowdfund either. Currently I have 4 projects still ongoing.. 2 really low impact indy games (1 seems to be on track, 1 seems dead), Star Citizen, and that vampire sidescroller whose name I always forget ;p

So far my success chance was thus... 91% .. I am very VERY picky with my pledges though. For example I looked at that animated steam punk movie back when it was funding phase and dropped it because I thought the entire first notion was wrong. They seemed to have no idea what (HD) animation actually costs.

This port is worse than Far Cry Primal. Anybody having Games for Windows flashbacks?

Did you try Windows 10 App store for real games and not the android ports? That reminds me right back to 2004.. the age before Steam worked at all, the age before anyone had a fucking clue how to do digital.

Microsoft seems to me like the caveman that just discovered the internet, and fails so hard at it that it's beyond comprehension (mine, anyway)

I hate crowdfunding and I hope it dies a painful death it deserves. It's the video game funding equivalent of snake oil salespeople. Like this bullshit.

Short-sighted much? There are plenty of good/great games that wouldn't exist without crowdfunding. Pillars of Eternity, Wasteland 2, Broken Age, FTL, Hand of Fate, Sunless Sea, SUPERHOT, Distance, Road Redemption, Grim Dawn, Undertale, Satellite Reign, Elite Dangerous, Divinity: Original Sin, The Long Dark, Xenonauts, Armello, Hand of Fate, Risk of Rain, Banner Saga, LISA, Dropsy...

But yes, let's wipe all those games from existence because of a few failed projects. You may not like crowdfunding but let's not pretend that it hasn't helped bring good games to fruition.

The Fig crowdfunding platform is the next bullshit scam. I stand by what I said and I mean it.

Stretching an escort mission into an entire game AND forcing you to do it in a stealthy manner was perhaps not the best idea.

I wouldn't go that far, the game could be fun.. if the levels had tons of different approaches. But as you have to get the girl to SPECIFIC doors that are only reachable from 1 direction (for the girl) it isn't a stealth game at all, it's a badly done puzzle game imo. And I hate that I don't have the ability to just KO the guards.

I also don't feel like the rewind mechanic adds anything... just few minutes in after making first mistake that required nearly a full minute of rewinding I wished for quicksave and quickload instead....
