Oh man, I was hoping this would be a topic of the underrated masterpiece Volition put out along with the Thomas Jane -film.

Same here. That was the first "superhero" game to really nail the tone of a license, in my opinion.

Was that the one where you torture some fools, and everybody got real up in arms about it, and it maybe almost got an AO or something?

That's the one.

The hilarious thing is that, in hindsight, it's really tame in comparison to the kind of shit we see these days. Great game, though.

I just need to say that the Mario Party Party made me laugh so hard I couldn't breathe. I had to pause it regularly to just to try and stop the laughing fits.

They need to put a warning label on future Dan videos.

The implication of the question is how you deal with harassment personally. The way the question is posed is asking how we deal with people harassing us. It needs to be worded better.

I'm not really sure what gave you that impression. The thread is titled "How do you most often respond to harassment and hate speech of others online?", and the OP is all about the duder flagging cruel posts that were directed at someone else.

How you deal with harassment personally is a good thing to discuss, but that's the topic for a different thread.

Either that was a stealthy edit to the thread title or I'm going blind.

I'm really hoping for the former.

Your poll is missing a "I delete the comment and ban them" answer.

It's frustrating to see many people register that harassment of other people is taking place online but ignore it. We have a flag system here, and while it's not perfect, if you flag something then it WILL be seen by a moderator or member of staff, and if it's breaking our rules then action WILL be taken.

Harassment is not tolerated here in any form, regardless of context. If you see someone being an asshole then flag their comment. If it hasn't already been deleted then it's probably because it hasn't been flagged yet, not because we've seen it and are ignoring it.

@viking_funeral: Lucasfilm/LucasArts decided on the canon of KOTOR. They decided that Revan was male and that the Exile was female, canonically.

I mean, if you're going to get angry about this sort of thing, I guess that's your right. It seems pretty dumb, though, considering both KOTOR and KOTOR II don't imply a preference of one over the other.

As much as I love the GTA 3 trilogy, those games played like dog shit in their day. They've only gotten worse with age.

Fuck's sake. All it took was seeing Atton's smug face and now I've got "PURE PAAZAAAAK" stuck in my head again.

Thanks a lot.

EDIT: and how does Bastila's fall to the Dark Side not make sense? It was heavily foreshadowed from the beginning. She's a prideful, jealous young woman who is carrying a whole hell of a lot of weight and stress. She's also arrogant, most likely due to the special treatment she's received as a result of her unique gifts in the Force. She's also got bottled up resentment and anger over her past. Not to mention she was tortured by Malak for God knows how long.

No really, I want to see someone try and tell me that Bastila's fall didn't make sense.

Well shit. That really looks like a Mad Max movie.

The Mako controlled like ass. I don't think anyone would deny that. However the Mako doesn't just represent vehicular based missions, it means something else. When people talk about missing the Mako, they're talking about finding an uncharted world and touching down to see what's there. Sometimes there was a mission, sometimes there was just some loot, and sometimes there wasn't much of anything at all. Whatever the case was, the planet was open enough for you to drive around and take in the sights with nothing but the howling wind whistling through the atmosphere.

When people say "I loved the Mako" that's really what they're talking about. ME1 was the only game in the trilogy that made you feel like you were exploring the galaxy. You were discovering things, people, and planets. That's why I always wanted more of it in ME2 and ME3 personally. This idea that I was standing on the surface of a planet that nobody else had seen or landed on before. It just made the universe feel huge.

In any event, I'm glad that they're returning to this kind of philosophy.
