We the people should be able to sue them for spreading lies in the media. This type of BS is used as "proof" to try and hand over control of the internet to the govt and have regulations and censorship on par with China, in the form of CISPA ect.....

Threewave CTF #1 I agree

I really did like the original TF mod though it was no where near as popular, I do wish it had not been so cut down to make it popular.

I think I still have my TEN coaster from Duke3d.

I just hope for once they keep up with the anticheat. I have personally witnessed in CS-S beta all the people on the same server I played on who I had no problems wasting "suddenly" all became pro overnight (moslty all in the same clan.)

I cant help myself.

America has been sold out from under you, globalization means profits for the rich and America going from 2nd world to a 3rd world country. Why did we bother to pass child labor laws if corporations can buy industrial complexes in a Communist Dictatorship country and pay 2 dollars per hour. Oh wait why did we bother fighting all those wars fighting communism just to hand all our industry to China. Our system was broken by the businessmen who became our public servants, who then lobbied and changed the laws to avoid any govt. tampering with large business getting away with it.

China is going to close the gap and surpass our current technology mostly because of all the tech being placed into their hands by us.

Did you all know Corporate Profits are at an all time high during Obamas administration, and they bs you with the regulations thing. GDP as wages and taking into account inflation is the lowest ever and has been on a steady fall since 1955 with wages being lower and cost of living rising, with the largest drop being the last 4 years.

Nafta trade agreement really? We were in a 24 billion trade surplus and went to a 36 billion trade deficit and let all the cheap labor come over the border. (This is the reason it happened) But investors and company who moved their businesses to Mexico profited big time while we lost jobs and wages dropped. I witnessed a 50 person factory that paid 12-15 hrly change overnight to shuttled in immigrants making min wage. The company was then sold for a massive profit the following year.

If you are currently working in a steady job with the same wages you will not see all this, the media will placate you into believing all is well. They will completely sell us out because of the debt or govt created through very bad choices.

The wars are all bs, did you know the reason the USSR fell apart was that Afghanistan broke them financially. They are not even doing anything about the poppy fields other than token efforts. Follow the money trail and the plans for the region and you will soon see the absolute truth of it.

DHS doing its job, nope its all to intimidate you. There is an FBI map on a govt site showing the almost open border with Mexico and the Mexican drug cartels have moved into every major American city. Whats the use of DHC terrorist can just smuggle in with the drugs.

Here is a recent poll you will never see on the news Recent Gallup poll on American faith in the Media is only 26% the lowest ever, and that high in my opinion as the only "truth" they give you is one sided with NO facts to substantiate it. Never mind we are ranking number 76 in the country list on freedom of speech and this is America, LOL!

Please wake up what I am stating are facts, and not off any conspiracy site, gee you can read the real financial forums and find out the whole mortgage thing was a scandal but still no US arrests, and whats with the President getting away with what 3 counts of treason vs the US never mind what hidden in the Fast and the Furious 100k of pages we will never see.

Anyway, not the right place for this, but hey Thomas Jefferson said the only way we would get through what is now taking place is to educate and have controversy and to not trust the media.

Does everyone know how immigration is supposed to work??? I lived abroad and got work permits, I know and have read many immigration sites just to see if I could get a work permit, and it is quite difficult unless you have a degree or a certain skill.

Immigration is only allowed when there are skilled job shortages! And never for things like working at mcdonalds or landscaping or any other job an unemployed citizen could do first. This drove the wages down or kept them at a minimum. Why let people come to our colleges and go to school and take jobs our citizens could do, they will accept lower wages and fill the pockets of the colleges. The biggest scam in history is taking place right before your eyes and 90% or more of Americans will not see it.

Read about some facts share the information hand out flyers if you can with key points that will wake people up. Do it for your friends and family and especially the children. You do not even have to make it about religion as it is about people and respect for each other and being somewhat ethical and moral in you daily interactions with others.

And please even if you do not want to vote vote for Romney the current lesser of two evils, it will at least buy the American people a little more time.

A game does not even need to be made for todays consoles for it to be dumbed down for the console masses. Civ 5 was very basic on release and its funny how you all get faked out by the pretty graphics, just like the oversized boobs on the blonde bimbos on tv that are ugly as hell. It was simple and is simple.

Most of these games go for graphics over intelligent thought out content and design, take this big recent game by Big Huge Games Kingdoms of Amalur:Reckoning, many of you thought it was great the gameplay was tedious and repetititives and the 3rd person view was abysmal, it was many steps back from the PC rpg predecessors. My only thought was wtf is this?

PC games have been infected by Idiocracy , lol. Never mind Capitalism has purchased our Democracy and most of the tards in the US cant see it. Baah no use there is no intelligent life here. mmmm wine.

No wonder US is dropping in education value. Hey we need some new pc games that show you how to tie your shoes and pick up your dirty dishes lol

Civ IV was the last Civ game for me. Civ 5 was dumbed down (simplified) way too much for the console masses just like many other titles in the last few years. It is good they improved it a little though. Have not played the expansion, but I just cant see how it competes with Civ IV Beyond the Sword after reading about it?

I think I need a second copy of Arma II so I can have a "just for fun" character in Dayz. Though I should just wait for Arma 3.

Sins of a solar Empire dam ai pirates get obnoxious.

I played the original Dues Ex and loved it, the the second one did not interest me much so I never purchased it, is Deus Ex Human Revolutions decent by PC standards? and is the second one worth playing?

Hmm I loved Max Payne the original when it came out think I had a pc that ran it maxed out and smooth but missed Max Payne 2, seems 3 is really good by many accounts making me consider playing through part 1 if i can get it to run and trying out 2 before 3? I replayed through both Mass Effect 1 and 2 before playing 3

Wow being single again after yrs of misery gives me so much time for gaming, lol. And as a bonus I am not trying to sort out and support someone elses disrespectful heathen children. (rant)

Come on peoples, this is looking really good. Its almost to the 150k mark lets get it to the 180k mark. You know you can afford to back something for 15 dollars.

Man some of these like Xcom and Wasteland 2 are actually making me excited over gaming again, 95% of what comes out these days holds no interest anymore, I moved on to purely simulations and strategy.

As a person who used to buy 4 boxed games with manuals a month (back in the days), I have gone to 1 maybee every 3 months know. Piracy is not the issue, crap movies and pc(console) games are.

There are other articles that elude to the fact that this is just the Alpha test using Arma 2 CO as the testing ground. Things said point towards it ending up as a standalone product like Iron Front Invasion 1944, but I would imagine that it will end up a standalone product using Arma 3 as the engine in the end. And cleaning up the netcode seems to be a priority for Arma 2 and Arma 3.

Make sure to check the link, this is not just "another" zombie game.

Sort of Fallout/Xcom with survival RPG. I have not really played any zombie games other than Dayz mod and Dead Island (never finished) but this one stands out for me. Im in.. (watches savings trickle away.)

Now the economy just needs to hold together till this and Wasteland 2 are complete.

All that focus on DLC's and no focus on Anti-cheat which is worse than most people realize, as the good cheaters play the hack so they appear skilled and not as obvious hacks. Clans with one so-so hacker can alter an existing hack and never get caught due to it being slightly altered and never released mainstream. I only play Hardcore and its obvious that people can bypass the hardcore settings.

I remember CS-S beta playing on the same server all the time wasting the clan members that played there over and over with very few deaths and suddenly one day they all had skills they did not have the day before and when confronted claimed they just gotten used to the new physics, lol. They had obviously converted their CS 1.6 hacks to CS-S.

Since the Dayz mod forced me to figure out Arma 2 all I can say is goodby BF3 and hello Arma 3. I may even jump back into the new CS Global Offensive, but it will most likely get hacked also. The new generation wants everything easy and cheating = winz = skillz.

News Comments > DayZ Modification for Arma II
60. Re: DayZ Modification for Arma II May 17, 2012, 11:50 Chromius
The mod has been created by an employee of Bis, and Bis has stated they will work with him to fix things specifically for the Dayz mod in the next 1.61 patch.

Also I read somewhere that the mod was tested by Bis in Arma 3 and does work. So I imagine the work to port it over will be negligible. Hopefully 1.61 and or Arma 3 fix some of the annoying bugs that keep it from being better. Bis/Arma 3 are fully realizing the potential gain in supporting this mod and this is only an Alpha so I can not imagine it will not be much improved upon.

Yeah I have been having fun with it, but you can see it can potentially get old after the initial fun/wow factor wears off if it is not expanded upon and improved.

News Comments > Guild Wars 2 Beta Event Next Weekend
12. Re: Guild Wars 2 Beta Event Next Weekend Apr 19, 2012, 18:03 Chromius
Have they improved the pvp mechanics over GW1. I bought GW1 played through leveled up and grew bored with the PvP vs WoW. I have not played Wow for a year and have been away from mmo's a year but miss pvp. I have watched a lot of the GW2 movies on pvp but I am still unsure. The world Pvp sounds dam promising.

But I have been let down by every mmo so far since Ultima Online, only Lineage 2 stood out and I bought and played most of them or did beta. DAOC,swg,AoC,Warhammer ect..ect.. I recently tried to jump back into mmo pvp and felt as though I wasted 50 dollars on swtor though if I were into pve and stories its worth it. And who knows they might fix pvp down the road.

I hate to waste money to try a beta but I am tempted, though pvp goes hand in hand with beer guzzling for me.

At the age of 55 I ran the Kingdom of Norway while my wife enjoyed such games as tag and hide and go seek.

I do not like my wars being automatically ended when the King dies and the son takes over, I lost all progress in England, and after reclaiming most of it I had some sort of automatic white peace declared, still learning the mechanics, never did CK1, only Vic2, EU3, Rome.

All in all good fun though.

I can tell u that there is absolutely no end game. Once u hit 50 there isn't much to do. I ended up pvping everyday till 1.2, at that point I got so much rage from playing the pointless game I quit.

Yup, none whatsoever. Just disregard the 8 hard mode dungeons and the 3 raids, each with 3 difficulties. Nothing there at all.

Hes talking about PVP not PVE. I too bought it after having some fun leveling through first trial, as I have been away from MMO a year and was missing Wow pvp. Leveled to 50 on The Fatman busiest server, PVP'ed half my leveling, got some new BM gear, but found that pre 1.2 was better pvp than 1.2 pvp and they did nothing to promote Ilum which is dead, so have fun playing 4 random maps over and over with no way to que for the ones you like. I personally like the Hutball map as a new concept but normally am not in the mood to play it.

There is an imbalance in server skill with Imp vs Republic, I like to go underdog but the ratio of Imp numbers skill/equipment vs Republic is pretty bad on top of character imbalance, counters are fine but Imps have it to easy.

Unsubbed/uninstalled till 1.3, thinking of going back to wow to level my future enhance shaman for ganking all leveling panda's in Mists.

Then again I end up not spending enough time with my simulations and strategy when I play those dang mmo's

Link on Blues yesterday.

Web freedom facing greatest threat: Google founder.

This thread started over a bad console port passing blame onto piracy.

This is why using the piracy card and blowing it out of proportion is going to have bad effects, as we know that its actual effect's are close to ten times less than what they make it out to be.

There is plenty of real info out there to prove that they want to pass a variety of laws that will make internet in the US as restrictive as China's and everything you do on said internet will be recorded and possibly used against you. They will eventually pass said laws.

True Story.

But all is well lets made bad games and bad console ports and blame piracy, just like the rest.

Keep yourself updated these people update you whenever new legislation or some related bill is being attempted to be passed.

You will be amazed.

I don't really see how it's different from any other cause of regulation. Sure big companies push it for money reasons, but in the end they can only do so because people are so flagrantly abusive of the freedom offered.

Pretty much every regulation comes from similar abuses.

So now we are flagrantly abusing our freedom? Whoa back the train up, so that means we need to have our freedom removed because of other peoples flagrant abuse. There is a loophole in everything yet when its abuse by a small amount it equals our freedom removed. A person shoots someone with a gun it an excuse to start a vendetta to take away gun rights.

Hey the rich use and abuse loopholes in a great many things do you see their freedoms being removed? Or any Bills or Laws passed to rein it in. We lose our freedom whenever the wealthy or govt feels insecure about its hold on domination and or mostly greed. Like profit loopholes to not pay billions or even a trillion in taxes and we are worried about pirating a 20 dollar console port. lol. Yes Congress please convene so we can pass a new Bill.

178. Re: Bulletstorm Sequel Cancelled; PC Piracy Mentioned Apr 11, 2012, 12:29 Chromius
Well you have to look at the big picture.

Yes, we realize piracy is bad and is happening a lot, buts its impact has been overall blown out of proportion(in terms of lost real profit). This in turn will be used against us in taking away from your rights and freedoms as the internet being used as a resource to share knowledge on things the govts and the rich do not want you to know. Period. It is shortsighted and narrow to cry poor me i lost sales and make it out to be 10 times worse than it is. (profit wise) and cause it to be a tool to be used to take away from your freedoms and rights which are unrelated. Im tired of the brainwashed monkeys jumping on the train and allowing it to careen out of control, as they want.

You need to wake up, browse real financial forums and see that real people are believing in the supposed conspiracy theories with real information to back it up concerning financial manipulation and war profiteering, and that the narrowsighted and selfish "Oh we lost pc sales and movie sales" and what not is going to be a large addition to us losing tools to share this real and factual knowledge.

Hey i know its unrelated, but look at the Carlyle groups profits in the last 4 years in a bad economy, 120 billion, lol the Guardian UK had an article about something funny going on with them at 15B in 2000 and the Obamas administration GDP to debt curve, something funny looking there.

So i have gone a little of topic, but this is the reason the Piracy card ticks me off. You should see the bills they keep attempting to pass every few weeks on the internet, you think the Patriot act is bad, lol. They want to be able to shut down anything they want full govt control like China. Oh the elite like the China model and are working to instill it here. Wake up and educate yourselves, it is NOT conspiracy theory, get yer heads out of yer butt.

Thomas Jefferson said the best tool we would have to combat a government that turns tyrannical in its power is to talk amongst yourselves and educate each other as to the state of things.

I dont give a damn about piracy, but hey if your in the 100k or more per year you will gladly vote Obama as the class divide widens.

But hey "Poor me I lost some potential profit" you wont even care in 5 or 10 years.
