It's just a video game. More than one complaining post means you are taking it way too seriously. Go outside and enjoy nature. Thumbsup

You wouldn't be saying that if some company bought the rights to a game franchise you loved and then shit all over it. This game could have stood on its own as a new IP, but buying the name of a loved RPG franchise and slapping its name on your product is going to draw comparisons to the originals.

You're going to feel that way more and more as time passes and you stubbornly maintain your own viewpoint and habits. It will adversely affect you in every aspect of your life - from playing video games, taking a stroll through a park. to eating at a restaurant. Culture, language, entertainment, and all those things that you consider a part of your identity will continue to change around you. The frustration is completely normal. You can see it when old folks constantly talk about the 'good ole days' and the corruption of the 'younger generation'. It's the appeal to tradition. It's one of the most difficult logical fallacies to overcome.

I'll give an example of a non-video game related behavior. I was taught to treat ladies traditionally - that is hold doors open for them, allow them to go first, and help them carry heavy items. Often I go through a portion of a bicycle path that is obstructed by stairs. It requires one carry his/her bike up the stairs. Well, I always carry my wife's bicycle up the stairs. She likes it. But often, I see men have their girlfriends/wives/dates carry their own bicycle up the stairs. It boils my brain. I'm constantly shocked at the lack of 'traditional' - that is what I consider to be polite and correct - behavior. I'm sure the counter-argument is that women have equal rights, therefore should equally be allowed to carry their own bicycles. It can be argued, against tradition, that the man helping is a sign of displaying superiority and trying to make the woman feel weak. In my case, it's far from the truth, as it truly is a part of my upbringing to respect women as superior and to be cherished. As you can see, both sides will see the same situation differently, perhaps with both having good intentions of respecting women. However, no matter how much logic is thrown into it, both sides will see their own way as righteous and will be critical of the other.

This is a reoccurring theme in my life. I'm sure you're encountering it on a minuscule video game design level. Be prepared for this frustration to get a lot worse in every aspect of your life.

Welcome to getting older. Thumbsup

Freedom, while tantalizing as a feature, usually means a constant grind for rewards. How solid is the storyline? Will I dream about it? Will it inspire me?

All zoos, in every form, should be closed.

Most ignorant statement of the morning! Many zoos/sanctuaries are saving the lives of animals and/or keeping them from extinction, and letting people pay a few bucks to come look at them helps pay for the self-less work they do. Don't throw the baby out with the [abusive corporate profiteering] bathwater...

People that engage in such activities (directly or indirectly) should be severely
punished. You don't put the victim in jail to protect him from the criminal.

Well, I won't get into a debate, but during the summer I'm usually at the beach. Ah, actually, I'm usually at the beach during all of the four seasons. It never gets too hot here. Thumbsup

I'll still take the raking with the autumn colours any day of the week. Fall is the best season in the northern climes, almost makes up for everything else. While I'll take the heat over the cold any day of the week I do like a change of seasonal scenery for what it's worth.


Let's compare our daily activities in January.

Now it's all about the money.

Blizzard, Activision, EA, Bethesda, Valve, CIG, Hairbrained Studios... It's ALWAYS about the money dude. These companies don't run charities. They exist to make profit.

Were you a fish in a previous life? Quit biting on the bait!

I'll never understand the hoopla around those films. The first and second one were just OK, the third one was terrible. The only 2 funny scenes in both films were the Marvin Berry thing, and Lea Thompson with the fake cans. I don't know. I suppose I'm just not dumb enough to enjoy tripe like the masses do.


Everybody has their own opinions on what they enjoy. It does take a special someone, though, to think everyone else's opinion is tripe. Congratulations on being that guy.

It doesn't take a good actor to recognize a bad one either. That applies to everything of quality in life. And just because you and the rest of the masses are easily amused doesn't make it good. In fact it's quite generally the opposite in spite of your believing you and your ilk are cultural sophisticates. Congratulations on being just another one of the multitudes of those guys.


You're entitled to your own opinion, of course. But I found the series to one of the best ever made for film. I'm a fan of complicated and philosophical science fiction, and I felt the films really touched upon a variety of social, philosophical, and technological concepts. Digestible for almost everyone in the audience - from simple action comedy to subtle irony - strewn with complex paradoxes, yet made understandable.

For example, on the social side, the Biff character is a great representation of just about every bully we have all faced at one point in life. He was the perfect antagonist to keep the pace of an ever challenging storyline. The way they made his ancestoral characters similar in all generations added to a continuity and gave each movie an epic quality contributing to a natural cohesion.

Put simply, it's one of my favorite movie series of all time. Thumbsup

Serious? He can harass people but as soon as we get upset about it our complaints are 'removed'. Why?

Meh, whatever. Perhaps I should have framed my elementary school comment as a query. It was probably over the line. I know Harlock likes to give as good as he gets, so perhaps Blue was just making a preemptive strike to prevent an all out flame war.

Yet, Harlock's personal attacks are not removed. . .

The Internet killed much of the prophecies of the 'future of technology'. The reason I say this is because we've mainly evolved virtually but not so much physically -- as per inventions and techological progress. Instead of robotic gas stations, real hoverboards, flying cars, Mr. Fusion, and weather control, we have Internet (including social media), video games, and mobile phones. We are virtually escaping vs. environmentally improving.
