With the Red Dead Redemption 2 hype train a-rollin', I decided to fire up the first game. Red Dead Redemption was my favorite game of the last console generation, and despite showing it's age (Rockstar games tend not to age very well anyways), most of the missions being pretty meh, and the AI being downright retarted, it still holds up as one of my favorite games. The atmosphere is still as great as ever and the gunplay is still very satisfying, even if the AI doesn't like to take cover :P. Coming from GTA Online on the P4, the MP doesn't quite hold up as much, but it's still alright.

Not exactly new to the forum, but haven't posted in years. The Red Dead Redemption 2 hype has brought me back though, so I guess I'm new-ish?

Gaming / Your favorite experience from this generation of gaming.
« on: May 26, 2013, 10:11:16 AM »
We're in the twilight days of the current gen, what was your favorite experience out of it? Mines were being immersed in the dying Old West with Red Dead Redemption (obviously:P), destroying my cousins in Super Smash Bros Brawl, trolling Black Ops and Black Ops II Zombies and making squeakers cry, The Arkham games and getting as close to being Batman as possible, sending thousands of pixel troops to die for my glory in epic bayonet charge in Empire and Napoleon: Total War, Assassin's Creed with it's magnificent cities (I don't need to go to Italy for real anymore :P), and the work of art that was Journey.

Today it was announced that Lucasfilm Ltd. and Disney Interactive are entering into a multi-year, multi-title exclusive licensing agreement with Electronic Arts Inc. (EA) for the creation of new high quality Star Wars games aimed at the core gaming audience and spanning multiple genres for console, PC, mobile, and tablets.Industry leaders and creators of best-in-class blockbuster games, the development and publishing teams at EA will collaborate with the creative teams at Lucasfilm to provide audiences with all-new gaming experiences set in the ever-expanding Star Wars galaxy. As part of the agreement, EA studio teams DICE (Battlefield series) and Visceral (Dead Space series) will join BioWare (Mass Effect series, Star Wars: The Old Republic) in the development of new Star Wars games.
"Our number one objective was to find a developer who could consistently deliver our fans great Star Wars games for years to come," said Kathleen Kennedy, president of Lucasfilm. "When we looked at the talent of the teams that EA was committing to our games and the quality of their vision for Star Wars, the choice was clear."
While EA studios will develop for the core Star Wars gaming audience, Disney Interactive will focus on delivering new Star Wars games for casual audiences on mobile, social, tablet, and online gaming platforms.
"This agreement demonstrates our commitment to creating quality game experiences that drive the popularity of the Star Wars franchise for years to come," said John Pleasants, co-president of Disney Interactive. "Collaborating with one of the world's premier game developers will allow us to bring an amazing portfolio of new Star Wars titles to fans around the world."
"Every developer dreams of creating games for the Star Wars universe," said EA Labels President Frank Gibeau. "Three of our top studios will fulfill that dream, crafting epic adventures for Star Wars fans. The new experiences we create may borrow from films, but the games will be entirely original with all new stories and gameplay."
More information, including titles in development, will be announced in the coming months. Continue to check StarWars.com for updates on the future of Star Wars gaming.

Gaming / Lucasarts shut down by Disney.

"After evaluating our position in the games market, we've decided to shift LucasArts from an internal development to a licensing model, minimizing the company's risk while achieving a broader portfolio of quality Star Wars games. As a result of this change, we've had layoffs across the organization."

On April 3rd, 2013 it was announced the Disney had shut down Lucasarts, laid off its staff, and shut down all projects including Star Wars 1313.

My first response. it's sad to see this company go, but they had been lackluster in recent days, 1313 looked pretty cool, if a little too scripted and linear, but I'm optimistic, hopefully Disney can push out some good Star Wars games. I'm still holding out hope for a GTA/RDR-esque one :P

News, Politics & Religion / Minimum wage: racist or not?
« on: March 10, 2013, 12:32:12 AM »
And I guess I should probably finish out addressing this comment lest you think I intentionally ignored what you were saying to me.  Firstly you didn't "debunk" anything.  You actually offered no evidence at all except saying "well I don't think the minimum wage law is racist".  I then gave you the entire racist history of the law starting from its predecessor federal law 6 years prior, up to the FLSA.  But if you're still not convinced... perhaps you'll believe the good people at a minority, collectivist, labor group who's mission is to help the low income.  Can't get much more liberal than that, and since you seem under the impression my statement is some conservative mumbo jumbo perhaps their words will be more persuasive.

http://www.pwcsc.org/node/47

It seems you've deliberately ignored the sources I brought to the table. The invention of minimum wage predates any act that you've presented (like the Davis-Bacon Act), you're off by about 40 years. Australia and New Zealand  invented it in response to violent protests against poor wages.

I've already presented these sources, take a look:
http://www.time.com/time/magazine/article/0,9171,1912408,00.html

http://www.britannica.com/EBchecked/topic/384095/minimum-wage

It's an established fact that minimum wage was invented in Australia and New Zealand as a result of strikes.

I think Hugo Chavez (attempting to be on topic lol) will have multiple legacies, and a very real one is that he was a champion of the poor. Not everyone agrees with this, but those with the least power deserve our consideration and he did that. I prefer America to Venezuela, but America has a lot of problems and our take on Capitalism is at the root of many of them. I was never a "fan" of Hugo Chavez, but that doesn't mean I saw him as a villain. Hyperbolae is ridiculous.

Chavez was a politician, like any other, there were pros and cons of his rule. Illiteracy was virtually eliminated and he made moves to help the poor, whether or not they were successful is debatable at the cost of human rights.

News, Politics & Religion / Women can now serve on the front lines

WASHINGTON (AP) — Senior defense officials say Pentagon chief Leon Panetta is removing the military's ban on women serving in combat, opening hundreds of thousands of front-line positions and potentially elite commando jobs after more than a decade at war.
The groundbreaking move recommended by the Joint Chiefs of Staff overturns a 1994 rule prohibiting women from being assigned to smaller ground combat units. Panetta's decision gives the military services until January 2016 to seek special exceptions if they believe any positions must remain closed to women.
A senior military official says the services will develop plans for allowing women to seek the combat positions. Some jobs may open as soon as this year. Assessments for others, such as special operations forces, including Navy SEALS and the Army's Delta Force, may take longer.
The official said the military chiefs must report back to Panetta with their initial implementation plans by May 15. The announcement on Panetta's decision is not expected until Thursday, so the official spoke on condition of anonymity.
Panetta's move expands the Pentagon's action nearly a year ago to open about 14,500 combat positions to women, nearly all of them in the Army. This decision could open more than 230,000 jobs, many in Army and Marine infantry units, to women.
In recent years the necessities of war propelled women into jobs as medics, military police and intelligence officers that were sometimes attached — but not formally assigned — to units on the front lines.
Women comprise 14 percent of the 1.4 million active military personnel.

This is an interesting development, discuss. Seeing as how women and men are built different, I wonder how women will fare in combat roles compared to men.

I suppose the gist of this thread is modern games coddling their players too much. I can't count how many times I've said "yeah, no shit" while playing AC III (or any AC for that matter, Ubisoft happens to be one of the worst offenders) or most modern FPS games. I can understand the need for tutorials on AAA titles for new players, but there's a difference between showing a new player the ropes and practically letting the computer play for you. It feels almost deliberately insulting. What do you guys think?

So this girl from Nebraska decides to rob a bank, then she does what anyone would do......make a video about it. Shockingly, the police caught her, maybe naming your video Chick Bank robber wasn't the best idea. Truly an inspiring story of one girl's fight against the evil government.

P.S. While not exactly a looker, I'd hit that just to say "yep, I nailed the crazy bank robber chick."

Star Wars: First Assault has been outed for the Xbox Live Arcade, I'm guessing it's also coming to PS3 and hopefully PC, maybe even Wii U. Could this be a spiritual successor to Battlefront II? Speculation is fun.

Self-explanatory.  First person to answer correct gets a turn.  If people have a difficult time naming the person, the one who posted the pic has to give hints. I'll start off with an easy one.

Another reason for me to want a Wii-U. Looks like a great return for zombie survival horror since Resident Evil turned into Call of Duty.
