I really hope if their new game is an RPG that they have hired a full-time writer to write the story cause a whole RPG featuring Killzone quality storytelling would probably be among the worst things I could imagine.

You cannot compare the Republicans with the Swedish Democrats. SD again and again have scandals because their party members do everything from wearing nazi symbols to writing on racist forums. SD is like the Tea Party faction maybe. Except they are in many way socialists. Nationalists and socialists in one...almost like they are nationalsocialists. I hope we are not heading in the same direction as Germany in the 30's, we are far from it still but I fear it.

They still didn't win the election, they have 13% but unlike in the US where the winnes takes all they get enough seats in the parlament to prevent either the left wing or right wing alliances to reach the 50% needed for anything to pass through parlament.

In the US what you wear as a politician can quite literally ruin your career. I can assure you that quite a few Republicans from specific areas support a majority of Nazi beliefs. Really outside of the Republican party being about as pro-Jew as you are going to see in a government outside of Israel they tend to lean a lot closer to Nazis than to most modern Western governments on many issues. I mean in Arizona where many of the most extreme Republicans originate police can legally stop a person driving down the road and arrest them just because they happen to look Latino. That is called racism and it is legal and supported by most Arizona voters. You should take a look at the current protests in a town called Ferguson where a cop shot an unarmed man who was just walking down the street six times in the back just because he was black. As of now he has not been reprimanded at all. Republicans don't wear Swastikas because Nazis are evil. Why are they evil? Most Americans couldn't tell you even the most basic list of their actions. But Nazis are evil and wearing a Nazi symbol means you are evil. It's about as simple as it gets here. The actual politics and beliefs of the Nazis are entirely irrelevant.

And the US Congress isn't set up differently than a parlament as far as factions taking control of the government. You need a majority vote to pass any law. The thing is that due to the difficulty in getting a new party recognized on a national level, we've had the same two parties vying for control of the government since the second World War. And just recently the Republicans shoved through a change to campaign legislation that lets businesses essentially sponsor politicians. When you have a multi-billion dollar corporation paying for your TV-ads no small party has a chance. Hence why our Congress has an approval level of something like 10% yet in the election in November I would bet at least 70% of current congressmen retain their positions.

So trust me when I say that I sincerely wish only 13% of our government was made up of Neo-Nazi racists, and that I wish we had enough parties that coalitions had to be made to force some degree of compromise.

Your post just made me realize that I have the white site running on one computer and the black site on another. Totally didn't even notice until this very moment, and I've been a member of this site since the very first day it came online. Shows how much I pay attention to this stuff.

I have several of these but I have been wanting to try Prison Architect but I can never convince myself to spend full price on an early access game. For $10 and including the couple other games I don't have I'll go for it. Also, before this I was at 298 Steam games so this purchase puts me over the 300 mark.

So when Drew and Dan mentioned Fuel on the Demo Derby today I remembered watching a video of Drew playing this game. At least I think it was this game. I just remember him trying to get to the top of a hill or something like that. But if it was this game then it must have been part of something like Unprofessional Fridays because the only videos on the game's page are trailers and some coverage of an event.

So does anyone know what video it was where Drew played this or am I thinking of him playing some other game?

@ikilledthedj: No problem. Although, FYI that game was announced several years ago, although at that time it was a PS3 game using PS Move as its sole control scheme.

@ikilledthedj: You mean the one that was just revealed? That would be Until Dawn. I'm not sure if that is co-op but it is a cabin in the woods game.

This thread has made me realize that I've only played one game that came out this year. Child of Light. So right now that wins by default, although I can't say I would wholly recommend it. Looking at other people's lists, Wolfenstein, Divinity, Transistor and Trials Fusion all seem worth trying. Yup that pretty much covers it right now. I want to try out the new Dragon Age when it comes out and that is about the extent of my gaming desires at this point.

Every Ubisoft open world game fits your description. Assassin's Creed I believe started having the base liberating mechanic with Brotherhood. Watch Dogs had it earlier this year. I'm sure The Division, Assassin's Creed Unity/Rogue and Far Cry 4 will have similar mechanics as well. The only non-Ubisoft game I can think of would be the Prototype series. The stealth isn't as open ended there. You really have only a couple of options but you can stealthily take over bases.

As far as other similar games go, I would say Dishonored has the stealth part but no base taking. The Infamous games sort let you take control of bases but there is no stealth. The most recent Splinter Cell is mainly focused on stealth but you can complete missions guns blazing if you want. And the STALKER series has a focus on open world stealth as well.
