Why is anyone arguing with Zeke? He doesn't care about slurs that hurt people. He just wants rich white people to be allowed to do whatever they want.

He'd probably be fine with changing the name of the team to the Washington Faggots.

Or the Washington Chinks.

I'm obviously a minority on this forum, so do I get to cry and moan about your liberal privilege?

LOL people like you still don't see the absurdity in it all.

I'm surprised you get such strong wi-fi under that bridge.


Scraper already conveyed my feelings here. Not interested in getting the last word.


I object to that as well.

The biggest problem I have with it is that we have a branch of the government deciding what is and isn't "offensive" based on speech. If you guys so clearly want to believe in the free market then why can't the USPTO sit back and watch the trademark wither away because the American people don't buy the products it's associated with?  

Why is it is so difficult to understand that this is out and out racism.  Redskin is NOT a tribal name, nor is it a person's name.  It's a racist slur.  Indians have been trying to get it banned for ages.  This isn't a new endeavor created by a "PC crowd".  If there was a team called the New York Kikes or the San Diego Tar Babies, would that be okay?  

And the American people have repeatedly proven that they aren't ALWAYS going to do the right thing.  As a matter of fact, if the government DIDN'T step in from time to time, we'd still have lynchings, whites only water fountains and segregation in many areas.

1. I never denied that it's offensive or racist.

2. Lynchings, whites only water fountains, and segregation are a far cry from a corporate logo and team name. In fact they're not even in the same ball park. We're not talking about basic human rights here, what we're talking about is hurting people's feelings. It's a slippery slope when the government starts making decisions based off of hurt feelings.

As it stands the people and our free market justify its existence. Sad but true.

Is the name offensive? Sure it is. But why should the government tell us what is and what isn't offensive when it comes to trademarks attached to a product?

I barely played the last one which is weird considering I played the heck out of all the ones before it.  I'm not sure if I just got tired of same old gameplay.  Hopefully this one will be fresh.

I know this is an unpopular opinion but I actually liked the 3rd one better than the second one. The story made more sense to me. Turning an entire section of the city into a prison in part 2 was a really bad premise that didn't make a whole lot of sense.
85  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS4/XB1/PC] Batman: Arkham Knight (Rocksteady Returns) on: June 17, 2014, 04:43:33 PM
Everything about the game looks awesome with the exception of the Mecha-Batman suit. I'm a big fan of the agile martial arts expert take on Batman and if you dress him up in an Iron Man suit it takes that away. But who am I kidding, I will buy the game day 1 and play the heck out of it.

Dragon Age is this year, and that game doesn't look appealing at all. I'm not alone in feeling that way either, as there has been almost no talk about that game in games media since E3 started. The trailer alone showed how different it still is from the glorious first game in the series, with comic-book superheroes somersaulting, dive-stabbing and doing all kinds of "press X to AWESOME!" things that make it look like they've learned nothing at all since DA2. Also, it's EA.

So yeah, what I'm trying to say is that I'm excited about Bloodborne and The Witcher 3. Probably more for the latter than the former, but I'll take both. smile

The gameplay on DA3 looks like it's styled after ME3, which is ok with me. But hey I liked DA 1 and DA 2 (even though they are very different), so I may not be the best person to ask when it comes to the DA series.
89  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS4] Bloodborne (previously known as Project Beast) on: June 13, 2014, 12:51:19 PM
I keep debating what my most anticipated game of next year is and Bloodborne may be it. It's between Bloodborne, Witcher 3, and Dragon Age, either way that's going to be a lot of action RPG goodness.

Looking over at Amazon, they have a ton of WiiU games on sale right now. Rayman Legends is $15, Mass Effect 3 is $5, AC3 is $12, Batman is $10 as are some other notables. I would be all over them if I had a WiiU.
91  Gaming / Portable Gaming & Apps / Re: PS Vita Impressions! Price drop! Casual Edition! Vita TV! on: June 12, 2014, 05:07:08 PM
I picked up the Vita 2.0 to replace my broken 1.0. I love the feel of the 2.0 in my hands, it is noticeably thinner and lighter. The change in screen isn't that noticeable either. If you go straight from the 1.0 to the 2.0 you can see a difference, but the 2.0 is still a really good screen and newcomers to the Vita shouldn't be bothered by the screen at all. I did have to adjust the brightness scale upwards in the system settings though, once I did that it was close to the look of the 1.0. The one thing that feels much better to me are the analog sticks, not sure what's different about them, but they seem to stick to my thumb better than the 1.0 version does. The added battery life is nice too.

All in all the 2.0 is a good system if you don't already have the 1.0 or need to replace yours.

Man, Nintendo really knocked that shit out of the park.  Of course a lot of those are 2015 titles, but at least they are showing people what they really want to see is actually being made.

I thought the exact opposite. There was nothing in that presentation that made me want to buy a WiiU anytime soon. I can wait for Zelda to come out. No price drop, no Metroid  thumbsdown

Destiny.  Looks a lot like Bungie is trying to make Mass Effect 4.


However it is beautiful and I love Bungie games so I am in.



I thought the same thing, the look of the characters and the world have a Mass Effect feel.

As for the Xbox exclusives Sunset Overdrive looks really good to me, depending on reviews that may be the game that gets me to buy the Bone.

That's cool, but remote play is a given with Vita so it doesn't blow my mind.

Yeah, I kind of expected that. It seems many people forget about the Remote Play capabilities though, so I just checked if you had too.

What I want is a Valkyrie Chronicles game on the Vita, now that would blow my mind. Or a new R&C or even Jak & Dexter.

They did announce a remake of the first R&C at the conference. I never played any of those games, so that's good news for me at least.

Argh why can't I get remote play to work even in my own house 10 feet away from the PS4.  Boo-urns to remote play, I say.

Doesn't the remote play go from the PS4 to the router and then to the Vita? So maybe it's a router issue. I have no problems with remote play within my house. Heck it works out on my back deck.

Dead Island trailers are the best.

Yeah, we'll see if they can deliver gameplay to match this time.  

Also, the video really seemed to indicate a much lighter tone, almost more like Dead Rising or something.  That sounded like Jack Black at the end.

Agreed on all fronts, and that was definitely Jack Black at the end. Not sure how close the game will actually look to that trailer but I like what I saw.

There's no doubt that both platforms have good content coming up. Everyone's a winner this year.

I agree if I'm grading both of these shows I would give them both a B. Microsoft did what they needed to do, which was show games. Sony came out and showed more exclusives that I'm interested in, but they stumbled with the whole movie and TV parts. Pretty even IMO. Also, I was hoping for a killer Vita game and they didn't show one at all.

Here's hoping that Nintendo knocks it out of the park today. I'm really hoping for a $100 drop in price for WiiU starting this month. That would get me to finally pick one up.
100  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: E3 2014 on: June 10, 2014, 12:36:37 PM
After watching both shows I think the only reason people are saying Xbox has more coming this year is because it was the theme of their show. If you actually stack up the exclusives it's pretty even, if you include indies then Sony pulls ahead. So marketing does help.

Apart from Madden and NBA2K they don't have any.


They were tight with EA over Fifa, they gave it away free for the Europe launch.

Yeah I over simplified it, between EA and 2K there are plenty of sports game for the Bone. Madden, NHL, Fifa, NBA Live (cough), NBA 2K. I just wish there was more competition in the sports game market.

I thought Sunset Overdrive looked really good. I'm still not sure how Sony let Insomniac develop this for MS. It definitely looks fun. Other than that there wasn't much I saw that made me say "I have to get an Xbone". The Witcher, Tomb Raider, Tom Clancy, Ass Creed, I can get all of those elsewhere. Fable looked like it could be good, but that's the type of game I will wait for reviews on.

I'm surprised there wan't a Gears game announced.

Very tempted to finally buy Stick of Truth, but holding out hope of a next gen announcement at E3.

Hopefully, we'll know about it before this sale is over.

Do these last a week?

PSN sales usually last a week, but this is a Flash sale and is only good through Friday at noon Pacific time.

This is a good EddieA post.  A great EddieA post would point out which games should not be missed at those prices.  Help a brother out.  Go for greatness.

NI No Kuni is an excellent JRPG. I paid $60 for it and I don't regret the purchase at all. At $5 it's beyond a no brainer.

I'm on the other end. They are basically paperweights at this point. I've gotten some recent mileage out of The Show but for whatever reason Infamous 2 didn't suck me in and my Xbox One hasn't been turned on in probably three months.

I don't even know what's on the horizon the look forward to... NHL 15, I guess?

I'm with YK, in fact I have a backlog at this point. I'm currently playing The Show, Wolfenstein, and after the PSN update tonight I will have Pixel Junk Shooter and Trine 2 added to it. Not to mention Outlast and Resogon in my backlog and Transistor as a future purchase.

I'm loving the Indie support for this gen. So many games to play in between the big AAA releases.

I went on a Scott Adkins movie watching marathon over the weekend. After watching the entirely awesome  Ninja II I fired up Universal Soldier Day of Reckoning I didn't think there was a chance in hell that the movie would be good, but I was wrong. The first 30 minutes is a bit formulaic but once the movie gets going it is non-stop action. Adkins carries the movie and near the end he goes absolutely nuts, big thumbs up if you like violent action movies. Then I watched Assassination Games, with Adkins and Van Damme. It was decent but the action wasn't anywhere near as good as Ninja II and Universal Soldier, it's still worth a watch though.

So, Scraper, is there any chance that the tree that fell indirectly led the lightning hitting your house?  I have to feel that the tree would have taken the strike and saved your house. 

No, I have a lot of big trees in my back yard all within 50 feet of the house. The tree that fell had 3 other big trees within 20 feet of its base. That Thor picture isn't too far off, accept the lightening strike was much closer to my house and there aren't any other houses near mine.

No, thanks for asking though. I was mostly venting when I first posted this. Still down a PS4, I had to take it to Best Buy to have them verify that it was broken and couldn't be fixed. Sure enough they said it would cost more to try and fix it than it's worth. So now my insurance has to replace it. Not sure when the check will come. Until then I'm down most of my electronic equipment. The one saving grace in all of this is that the PS3 is still working perfectly so I will work on my PS3 backlog until the check comes in.

I'll choose to believe that this creates a niche in the market that somebody may try to exploit.  Kinect owners will be looking for anything to play using their device and maybe that allows for a bit more sell though on a game owners may not usually buy.  A developer could try and capture that market with something/anything, could go either way though if crappy trash games are put out instead of quality Kinect titles.  I will hold out hope for a good fitness program, what I would really like is one that has streching and flexing as part of the program sorta like Fitness Evolved but better intergrated.

I agree with YellowKing that MS is trying to change with the market and listening to its customer/potential customer base, can't be all bad.

The fitness potential is there with the Kinect. All it would take is one really good game/program and I would be sold. As it is I'm not going to pay $125 for P90X/whatever program you choose, plus the $499 for the XBO just to use the Kinect with my workouts. Make the program competitive with P90X, make it a $60 game, and make full use of Kinect, then release a new version of the program/game every year or so and I am sold.
