@mariachimacabre:

Don't listen to that, that's just reviewers jumping on the "Feminist" bandwagon

I'm so sick of this crap

@spiiken: Because most people still don't have good internet connection. Let along the 1.5 mps Xbox wants.

Also did you sleep threw what happen with SimCity? Or Diablo 3? Or are you that stupid to thing something like that wouldn't happen to Xbox?

Also no military bases can use them.

@sephirm87:

Yeah and they backed off because it was in there best interested, guess what gamers weren't going to buy it, non games don't need it, it cost too much and does things a TV does now.

Also the fact that there's no backwards compatible aka my number one reason why I don't want a xbox one because guess what I like my 360 games and xbox arcade games ect. But I guess that's "living in the past"

Blindly moving forward just means you don't see the cliff you're going to fall off of.

@evilnights:

It was a good send off to TOS cast, shows you can tell a good story with the ideals of Star Trek (trying to better yourself, always do the right thing, try to talk things out, fighting is only a last resort )

I kinda am dreading Into Darkness because it looks like just another GRIMDARK action movie

Maybe if game reviewers weren't telling readers to buy a game, were I don't know, a game were a "good guy" murders a pregnant woman in a way that kills the baby first before killing her, then later the player character tells her husband how awesome seeing said child turn into chucks. We wouldn't be having this problem.

its simple, the Wii out sold both the 360 and the PS3 combined. So everyone is trying to get on it anyway they can.

I wend and checked the sales of the two games.

Army of Two: 2.69 million

40th day: 1.81 million

That's a pretty big drop in sales. And for the most part it seem to be due to the tone of the story, people come for the bromance not some grimdark battle with "deep" morals

And they want to make the game more like 40th day tone?

Isn't EA smart?

The only redeeming factor about Army of Two was that it wasn't serious. Why would they remove that?

Because EA likes loosing money.

Who cares, about political correctness. The bottom line is video games are and will always be an form of entertainment first and foremost. The player character is you. And I don't know about you but I rather not play "I spit on your grave: the video game" And by the outrage most people don't want to either.

Rape isn't fun.

A woman getting rape and as a result she becomes badass and kills isn't new its been done to death and is now seen as a poor way to make characters AND sexist (as men rarely get raped in media)

Like I said wend I posted you're defending something a 14 year old would come out for their shitty fanfic. Also the games' lead developer just stated their is no rape in the first place.

I totally get your point.

Who cares about political correctness? Konami. Greece. Crystal Dynamics...which is why all the backpedaling. And most people that aren't total bigots, to some degree or other. And also bigots, when the incorrectness is about them. People just don't like to call it political correctness because the phrase makes you think of walking on egg shells so you don't get kicked out of the Olympics.

Rape isn't fun? No argument here. But I'm sure you're not suggesting all of the other tragic back-stories behind video games would be fun, so...I guess maybe I don't get your point. At least we can agree rape isn't fun. But a lot of people seem to agree that pushing fictional characters to extremes is entertaining.

AND portraying breasts must be sexist too? I mean, men rarely have breasts in media.

And so the lead dev says there is no rape. So what does that mean? Rape is sexist but implied sexual aggression, clarified by the dev to be to some degree less than rape, is not? I'm not following your bottom line...

Come to think of it, I don't see a point to totally get.

Good job missing the point of everything I said.

in human mind set rape is seen as worst than murder, that's why a in the Elder Scrolls Molag Bal is viewed as the most evilest of the Daedric Princes because he's a rapist.

That's why we don't mind Batman's parents getting killed, but an outcry wend Black Cat origin was recton into getting date raped.

That's why everyone hates FATAL (well the main reason)

And like I said, female characters having rape in the backstory is rather common, to a point were writer Gail Simone posted a site listing every female in comics with rape in their back story (or was added into it) or gets rape for drama just to show how many there are.

This isn't "art" its a cliche.

I completely disagree. You're mischaracterizing all criticism as whining and balling, and ignoring its impact on future work. "Producers" don't create in a vacuum, completely by themselves. Do they have an obligation to respond and/or address to all criticism? Of course not. But somehow trying to argue that criticism of criticism is more valid (or less annoying) than criticism alone seems a little crazy to me, and is based entirely upon your subjective "side" in the argument.

I agree with your point in a general way; criticism is important and constructive. They even have a name for that kind of constructive criticism, crazy enough it's called "constructive criticism". But this, for the most part, hasn't been that. I would say, for example, that the whole thing about the borderline-falsely-advertised ending to ME3 falls under a more productive type of criticism.

What we've seen with Tomb Raider is more politicized. And I'm not saying people don't have a right to whine and complain; I'm saying that this idea that an article complaining about what happens when political correctness is enforced by whiners is somehow idiotic, is the real idiocy here - in terms of intrinsic value. I'm saying there is a value differential between creating something, providing criticism as feedback, and providing criticism as a push to enforce political correctness.

Political correctness can have value in terms of promoting more responsible thinking; but when it becomes a crusade for mob-rule censorship it has negative value, it is less valid, and it is more annoying. The frequency with which political correctness shifts from a call for awareness to a call for penal enforcement is why the term carries a negative connotation with so many people.

Who cares, about political correctness. The bottom line is video games are and will always be an form of entertainment first and foremost. The player character is you. And I don't know about you but I rather not play "I spit on your grave: the video game" And by the outrage most people don't want to either.
