Something had to move in October. I'm surprised it was Dragon Age, I thought that game had enough gravitas to hold its own in sales.
I'm not sure if this should be in bug reports, so I apologize mods/staff/@rorie.
The Quick Look: The Nightmare Cooperative isn't supposed to show up for a few hours on Giant Bomb, but it currently available on GameSpot. http://www.gamespot.com/videos/quick-look-the-nightmare-cooperative/2300-6420313/ Just an FYI.
The right framework here is one of pluralism: the ability of many different kinds of people to live out their beliefs in public with and among those who deeply disagree with them. This is no easy challenge; it's painful and ugly and hard. But the alternative to is a thin, univocal culture, one in which the only disagreements we have are trivial. And that would be a shame. ( I changed faith to beliefs from the conclusion of an article Alan Nobel wrote to make it more applicable)
I'm glad you brought up Voltaire. He's one of my heroes. He did have critics in his time as evidenced in his Letter to Étienne Noël Damilaville, May 16, 1767, "I have never made but one prayer to God, a very short one: Oh Lord, make my enemies ridiculous. And God granted it."One of my favorite quotes which is often misattributed to Voltaire but was Evelyn Beatrice Hall is, "I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it." And that's how we should live. You don't have to agree with or listen to anyone but they have the right to say it (of course not violating the ToS of GiantBomb).
There is still a ton of room for silly pictures. Someone has to add Dan and Jason to staff Photoshop image thread.
@siroptimusprime: Dan's YouTube channel ( http://youtube.com/user/ExileOnMassSt ) is gold. I never seen a man chug a bottle wine (in a giant stein) within six seconds before. He's a hero. I'd post more but I don't want to be flagged for YouTube spam.
Since I'm posting from my phone I'll edit the post from my PC later so that the YouTube link is a link.
