  • So, Where Are YOU on Net Neutrality?

    Giving government control over net neutrality basically puts it in a position where it can redefine the meaning of the term. 'neutrality', as it sees fit. If a company decides to block or slow down access to certain sites, you can always go to a competitor. If the government decides to do so, there's almost nothing you can do about it. 

    In a perfect world where government could be trusted to safeguard the rights of the people, I'd be all for it. Here in reality where corruption, cronyism, and 'nanny stating' have run rampant for more than a century (in the USA at least), I'm very much against it. 

  • EA should lose the Star Wars license

    Giving exclusive rights to one publisher or developer is extremely short-sighted. A license like Star Wars needs to be both treated with respect, and explored from a multitude of different perspectives. You're not going to get that from a giant like EA which has so much direct control over their developers. So far it's just been cash grab after cash grab, with some like SWTOR straddling the line (or used to, now it's all about the $$). 

    Disney needs to give others a chance. We've already seen what Obsidian can do with the license, why not give them another shot? What about giving Machine Games a try at a SW FPS, or From Software the opportunity at an ARPG? There are just so many talented medium-sized to indie studios out there which could do amazing things with a SW license, yet they obviously went with the one that could pay the most, quality be damned. Such a shame. 

    Blizzard should also lose their license to warcraft and starcraft and give it to CD project. Imagine, even if it might take a long to make, the most amazing and realistic warcraft RPG by cd project the makers of witcher 3 the best RPG ever.

    And I can't even imagine what a starcraft RPG could be like if it was by cd project...that would be an instant winner.
    Hey now, Blizzard stole those IPs from Games Workshop created those IPs fair and square! You can't just take away their rights to their inferior, watered-down copies totally original work like that!

    In all seriousness, I'd rather CDProjekt tackle an RPG set in the actual WH40K or Warhammer universes, not Blizzard's hackneyed versions of them. That would truly be something special. 
  • Star Wars: Battlefront II Review – This is the Star Wars Game You’ve Been Looking For - Not So MMO -

    Saw the words, "Defect to the Republic", and immediately lost what little interest I had. If I wanted that crap I'd play just about any other Star Wars game available. I'm tired of playing as a bunch of terrorists. Screw the cliched bullshit, screw the microtransactions, and screw EA.

    I rooted for the Empire, and I cheered when Starkiller Base destroyed the New Republic. Just ONCE I'd like a game to give the point of view of the Empire / First Order the fair shake it deserves. I guess for now I'll just have to settle with playing through TIE Fighter again.
  • Visceral Games Closing, Star Wars Title Heads to EA Montreal - News

    So EA forces them to fuck up the Dead Space franchise, then kills them off. Fuck you, EA. I wish there were something I could do other than continue to avoid buying any of their products. It's very frustrating to see their games continue to sell well and make money despite all their overly greedy and incredibly destructive behavior.

    I was worried this game may have tempted me to break my boycott. Well, guess I have nothing to fear at this point.
  • Marvel Heroes Omega - Omega Prestige: Prestige Should Be Fun, Not Mandatory -

    The PC version went from a shit game to a fantastic one, though now it seems as though they've looped completely around and started over again. Maybe the game is just trying to increase its own prestige level!
