  • There was just a shooting at the Madden NFL 19 stream of the tournament in Jacksonville

    Exactly, yet the stats for murder plus guns is very low in America compared to any other country.

    But every time this happens people always ignore the facts of how history has shown the murder rate is higher in countries where guns are banned. Exactly why the history of Hitler, Mao, and so on is always ignored, just like in this thread. Taking the guns is not the answer, never has been. Break down of family values and break up of families is statically shows that causes the problems with murder than guns. The problem of not having jobs for people and wages way down. Heck Venezuela shows that today.

    While I do not support the NRA because they are too political, I do support everyone's right to arm and defend themselves.  All you have to do is look at Chicago and see what happens when you take away the guns from law abiding citizens.  I live in a town where we have 1.4 million people where the typical response time to a 911 call is 42 minutes.  The county sheriff here warns everyone to do what they need to do to protect themselves because the police services are stretched too thin.

    Is it a sad event that happened in Jacksonville?  Absolutely.  Does it mean we need a knee jerk reaction to ban guns?  Absolutely  not.  Bad things happen to good people.  You punish the criminal(s) involved.  You don't punish the masses because of it.

    That is like taking away everyone else's vehicles because someone intentionally drives into a crowd and murders a bunch of people.  The reaction just does not make sense.  
    I could not agree more and there are a lot of facts to back up every word you said.

  • Crytek Filing Lawsuit Against CIG

    No because the CIG knights will try to crucify you to your channel and probably stop watching right after and you’d lose revenue. 

    However if you take CIG’s side and your video is all about how the judge fucked up or how Cryteks lawyers are just reaching for anything then you will have an already rabid fan base watching your videos which will lead to revenue plus you will more then likely have said rabid fan base throwing money at you because they love that you are siding with CIG.

    So yes money totally plays into the equation and sets the bias. 
    Oh lol, every piece of controversy and drama about SC gets high views, not the opposite, just see the media outlets always with negative press on SC always trending.

    I'm not picking a side and saying "oh his opinion is the right opinion", I'm just seeing the informed views we have around on the matter. And the fact is, most of the views given on this whole lawsuit from informed people, do overall favor CIG and not Crytek in multiple points... Even the article you linked before of not being biased that also reviewed the case, but now they're biased?! hmmm!
    I’m starting to think you’re just picking random sentences from the CIG Defense handbook and cobbling them together because you’re not making a lot of sense in your reply to me
    Well, the way am reading CRYTEK and responses from CIG, I feel sorry for Max and others, because it's really starting to look like things are going CRYTEK's way. I believe Max and others really had faith in Roberts telling the truth about how Star Citizen/SQ42 was being produced.

    It would be hard for anyone to start realizing they well could have been duped. Not saying they were just starting to look that way.

    Well for me it is getting very discerning that we aren't getting further along and closer to a real beta. Lot keep saying all the money is going toward development. Okay I get that, electricity, rent, paychecks, but then we have a right to ask okay so how much is everyone being paid. Just seems the only thing backers are allowed to do is stay quiet and believe Chris Roberts knows what he is doing.

    If we do ask why so long in alpha, normally we are attacked and told we don't understand development. Well when I agreed and gave my money I was under the assumption we would already be playing the full game. Plus if we weren't playing the game Chris said he would release the financials by now.

    Sorry just sick of playing an alpha. Finish it once and for all please.
    So ... to sum it up ...

    GIMME THE BEST GAME EVAR ...

    AND DONT YOU DARE TO NOT BE FINISHED YESTERDAY !


    Have fun
    Actually it means "Hey Chris, release the darn game, PLEASE, or give us what you promised, nothing more, nothing less.

    Also being involved in gaming for years and testing hundreds of games, I have never seen people attack others who are actually concerned about getting what was promised. It's like I said, be attacked or shut the heck up.

    Thank you @Erillion, you made my point. :'(
