I like a video game where I get to drive a hoverround. You have to watch an extra gauge though, life, ammo and battery life. Run out of battery life and you're a sitting duck.
 
2014-08-19 08:29:31 AM  
How many games have a racial minority like blacks or hispanics as the bad guys?
 
2014-08-19 08:32:56 AM  
Run around with AR15s threatening to "water the tree of Liberty" and using violent rhetoric because a black Democrat occupies the White House?
Patriot!

Somebody makes a video game depicting your brand in a bad light?
911? I need the Whaaaaambulance, stat! And somebody get me Darrell Issa's office number!

According to game reviewers, the "Don't Tread On Me" Gadsden flags - normally associated with Tea Party protests . . .

Oh, Gadsden flag, you were once so cool.
 
2014-08-19 08:48:22 AM  
It's just a natural affinity.  Games where you get your Obamaphone and government checks in the mail are pretty boring.

It ain't the Tea Party looting in these United States, ya freaks.
 
2014-08-19 10:03:56 AM  
I love that they are worried that gamers will confuse Tea Partiers and 'Patriots' in real life with the bad guys they fight in this game instead of disputing the representation of them.

"Well, these bad guys are clearly exactly like us, how do we keep people from realizing how accurate a representation that is?"

You'd think gamers would be able to sympathize with other people who talk a lot but never leave their house to actually do anything.
 
2014-08-19 10:04:46 AM  
Beck and his guests wondered how younger people will be able to "differentiate" between the bad guys in the video game, and real life Tea Party types

Beck, step away from shilling those gold stocks for a minute to the rubes, I'll give you a tip.  When it becomes difficult to distinguish your side from the bad guys in a video game, maybe you should reconsider some of your views.  Just sayin'
 
2014-08-19 10:05:09 AM  
"That's exactly what I thought," Glenn added. "If Raphe went over to somebody's house, and they had this... He knows when we're around that that flag will fly... He knows that we're members of the Tea Party, if you will. We support it. He goes over and plays that game... 'Well, wait a minute, My dad believes in some of those things.' .... What does he think?"

He thinks you're a farking lunatic.

I don't get it, these people like to openly talk about civil war, which of their fellow Americans they'll kill, how much fire power they have, liberty trees being watered with blood, etc., then get all shiatter hurt when someone pays attention and reacts.
 
2014-08-19 10:05:15 AM  
So this is not one of those cases were some offending content to some can't just be left to the scrutiny and natural forces of the free market to decide what is good and what is not, instead of having the MSM vilifying it and thus not "violating the freedum of speech"  of those who made it? I'm confused.
 
2014-08-19 10:05:38 AM  
Does this mean I should retroactively be up in arms about that stupid rapture game where the player goes around smighting liberals and atheists after the rapture?

I'll buy an EA published game, as long as I don't have to install Origin.  shiat, I'd by Crysis 3, Dead Space 3, and Mass Effect 3 w/ all DLC TODAY if I could get them through Steam.  I'd even be willing to pay more for them.

Satanic_Hamster: I'll buy an EA published game, as long as I don't have to install Origin.


I think we can all agree on that. EA, Ubi, they all need to get it through their heads that they lost and Valve won, and nobody wants their sh*tty proprietary storefront systems.

I don't mind multiple systems, I've got Blizzard, Valve, etc. all running.  But Origin is a POS.

Keep in mind, some of that came about due to EA's desire to have "exclusive" dlc's available only to some venders/points of sale.  Plus EA's desire to steal information on your computer and install root kits.

But EA?  I know that Steam takes a cut of your profits.  What I'm saying is there's a lot of people who will pay MORE for your games just so you do not have to install Origin.  Raise your Steam prices by what Steam's cut is, plus a few percent for overhead, AND I'LL PAY IT.

Battlenet I can handle. It's pretty lean. Origin is definitely garbage, and have you ever tried dealing with Ubisoft's system? I straight up didn't play Farcry 3 because of it. I put the disk in, tolerated the loadup once. Played the game for awhile, had a decent time, went to play it again, did not tolerate the loadup, haven't touched it since. (360)

Far Cry 3 was far superior anyway. FC2 had quite possibly the worst enemy spawn system ever. Could have been great but they botched it.

BUT, Far Cry 2 had an AWESOME map editor. SO much fun to tinker with, and it didn't take but a minute to build a workable deathmatch map, load it up and shoot some friends. It was like Timesplitters back in the day.

Oh, I wasn't excepting it to be as good; bought it on Steam sale.  Just annoyed over the technical issues, a few bugs involving flying npc's, and unable to resolve the motion issue (seems to be a more common problem w/ console ports, had the same issue with Saints Row 2).
