News Comments > Rainbow Six Siege Free Weekend
1. Re: Rainbow Six Siege Free Weekend Aug 17, 2018, 02:59 Slick
 
Last time there was a free weekend for R6 Siege I downloaded it 10 minutes before it ended, joined one lobby, teamkilled 3 allies and got booted from the lobby, then it ended.

And thus, my love affair with that piece of shit game was ended.

I did play the alpha and beta for it, and man, is it BOOOOORING. Holding angles while camping a corner waiting for something interesting to happen, then it does and you wait 7 minutes for the round to end to respawn. YAWN.

There's never been a deathmatch mode in Battlefield. There has been Team Deathmatch since BF3, but that's it. 24 players (default) 12v12 on a small map.

I really have zero clue how that could be compared to a 100 person 8x8KM map where you have to scrounge for weapons, every man for themselves (or small squads), with the map slowly getting smaller.

Anyways, played the second alpha, same shit. HP regen kicks in faster now and you spawn with more ammo, but same shit. Honestly, I was going back to Battlefront II on the second day of the alpha, the gameplay is just much twitchier and IMO more fun...

That trailer looks pretty hot.

The whole idea of limited gameplay (punching and shooting) works much better in the old west than modern-day GTA IMO.

Problem is this game looks like it will be tiiiiiiiits in 4k HDR, but the good HDMI 2.1 compliant 4k TVs aren't coming out until March 2019 (probably).

So I guess I'll wait and just try to avoid story spoilers... probably ain't gonna work...

Take two baby, top streamers be warned! =p

Also, I think I was the first to break this news on reddit, should have tweeted it, my Origin client all of a sudden gave me the preload and launch times for the BFV Alpha (since it was already in my games list) yesterday morning, then it dissapeared, then it re-appeared later in the day.

Free speech won't be affected but idiots passing off bullshit as real might.

He definitely toes the line of free speech and libel, but it gets me really uncomfortable when guys like this are silenced. He's just someone with a lot of bad ideas that should be ridiculed, not silenced. I certainly don't want Google, Apple and Facebook deciding what should be censored and what shouldn't, our news and information streams flow too much through these companies to begin with. They should not have the power to censor what we consume on a whim- We may not loose any sleep over Alex Jones going away, but it sets a terrible prescident.

I like the theory that "sunlight is the best disinfectant". And it does set a bad precedent. But it's hard to not wonder which is the greater evil, silencing him (just on their platforms, he still runs his own website that his minions will use), or letting his destructive ideas permeate popular culture.

With the rise of fascism in the west, it's getting harder and harder to believe that just having his shitty ideas get more and more airtime will "show people what a nut he is" and instead seems to just be recruiting more people to his side.

The ironic thing is that Alex is loving this, he gets to fall on his sword so honourably to his and his viewer's eyes. Any (rightful) damage against him just plays into his narritive that the world is out there to silence him, that he is the only bearer of truth and "the man" is trying to shut him up.

Facebook, Stitcher, Youtube all banning his bitch ass won't hurt his viewer/listener numbers, and they will only become more fervent supporters of his bile and nonsense after seeing him "attacked" like this. It's information wars people!

Gotta hand it to them, these crackpot loonies are smart, just like the extreme Trump supporters, they paint themselves into a corner where to be proven wrong only hardens their resolve that the "system is against them".

Lol, no hard feelings Quinn.

TBH I've had you blocked for a while now for some dumb shit you probably said a while back, and I only really read your last response to me on a whim, pretty much everything I've written was not in response to you.

I'll unblock you though, cause I feel like I'm probably being petty.

Sigh.

I wouldn't give two shits if they remade a Tomb Raider with a male lead. It's make believe. And my comments were meant to be taken toungue-in-cheek. I wasn't trying to be an asshole, just playful.

Is that virtue signalling enough for you?

They're fictional characters, what the fuck do I care? I have zero agency or licence to dictate my tastes to the people who create this art. It's their call, I'll judge it based on real merits, not whether the lead has a dick or not.

If you think I'm not being enough of a pretentioneer here, I actually went to film/TV school in college, so I feel that I have enough perspective to fairly judge and criticise film/tv on a thousand different points. Nowhere on that list is the gender of the made-up characters.

Watch Mr. Plinkett's Ghostbusters Review to see a wonderfully dissected argument of everything wrong with that movie. And NOT ONCE was the "issue" of the cast being female even brought up.

Cause at the end of the day, we shouldn't really care if they have a penis or not, we should care if it's true to the franchise's characters, the humour, the beats, the plot, the worldbuilding etc. etc. etc.

It's not a mortal sin to have a preference to see a man in a role than a woman, same the other way around, it's just not really that important. We should all strive for a common humanism rather than devolve into tribalism... ON ALL SIDES

I'm just immediately suspect of anyone who thinks that a fictional character HAS to be one gender or the other. They're not real jackass. If someone wanted to remake a Nelson Mandela biopic for the 8th time and have Melissa McCarthy in the starring role, then yeah, there is a real argument to be made. But not if it's about Peter Fucking Pan. It's make believe dummy.

Anyways, I recommend watching the Plinkett Ghostbusters review as it's a funny take on why that movie bombed so hard. It has nothing to do with the gender of the actors. I saw Ocean's 8 with the wife recently, and that movie also kinda blew, although nowhere near as hard as Ghostbusters. For very different reasons, but both movies were just subpar on all the metrics that matter, penises being exempt from the final tally.

Telling a fragile white person that "white privilege" exists is like telling a girl who's PMSing that she's PMSing. There's just something in the brain that won't allow the information to get through, no matter how that tiny bit of knowledge could add such context to many conversations.

For the record, I think the guy is kinda a douche, and seems to be overly aggressive towards white people. I don't like bullies, and if you have to resort to that to get your point across you've lost my confidence in your message.

And yes, I can hold these 2 thoughts in my head at the same time, while chewing gum no less!

Context matters here.

Sepharo was responding to the lovingly collaged image KxMode posted. Which there's objectively nothing wrong with. Seriously, read them, it's the weakest "pro-diversity" whatever whothefuck cares... Honestly the race/gender/sex of the protagonists in games/books/movies doesn't matter to me AT ALL. What matters is their character. If it's hamfisted in there, it can be offputting, but if it actually builds an interesting character I'm all for it. Watch Dogs 2 had a trans character who was a politician, and their gender or sexual identity wasn't even brought up once in dialogue, it was perfect, it had nothing to do with the plot, so why bother? It made the world come alive by reminding us that not everyone is a stock character archetype. I'm all for more of that in my art.

I think what Quinn is getting mad at is stuff like THIS

Which paints a TOTALLY different picture.

It goes from "yeah, diversity is good" to "fuck of whitey".

There is a difference, and words matter.

Still, Quinn seemed to have gotten triggered pretty hard, with responses like that there's almost nowhere to start, you'd need a time machine to change his mind. You know, back before the gender-fluid person made eye contact with him back in 8th grade, he's felt unclean ever since.

I went to the Motive offices here in MTL a couple weeks ago for a gametesting thing, got 2 free games for 4 hours of my time. Signed an NDA so I can't talk about it, but I can definitely say that when I had to take a phonecall and leave the room into their *beautiful* cafeteria area, there were like 2 employees watching me like a hawk to make sure I didn't veer off course and accidentally discover what they're actually working on. Really nice office though *dreams*

Naval strike is really fun, best DLC pack in any Battlefield game in a long time... except maybe for final stand also in BF4.

But how would you really know Naval Strike is fun... that map/game mode got played for about 4 days when it came out, then all of those servers were empty.

Maybe it's made a resurgence these days though, I haven't had BF4 installed in years.

Oh no, those servers are still as empty as they've ever been... Those first 4 days tho xD

Also, they should really just release all DLC for BF1 and BF4 to keep it in line with their new strategy. Would give them a breath of new life months before the new game comes out, would probably be good PR and good marketing.

All I need to know is if I can pay $15 in February and try Anthem out for a month... And then consider paying for another month or three, or buying it (at a 10% discount)...

Their FAQ claims cancellation is easy, and canceling early doesn't fuck over your date (Some subs have done this), so I don't see any reason why this wouldn't work.

Yeah, this will really change the dynamic of player populations when anyone can play a new game for the first month for $15. This will really mean that they have to keep the content consistant on a monthly basis to keep players playing, or else you'll see a big drop in player numbers after the first month or two (beyond the already steep drop in player numbers naturally after launch)

If there was a 3rd game I was interested in, it might almost make sense to consider a $99/year package, if I'm reading it correctly, means I'd have BF V and Anthem. It's really a gamble on how long any of this shit will keep my attention, 12 months seems about the max range, they'll just come out with something else next holiday season...

Still though, I don't like the idea of paying that much for games that have an expiry date on them. Even though 99% of my library is never returned to, it just feels weird not owning the title.
