There are burn cards for Titans now, which sounds fun.  I'd love to get back into the game but I'm stalled out on a really annoying regen challenge that's deflating my interest.  I also really wish they'd hint at some new Titan types coming in the semi-near future.  New maps and game modes seem a little lackluster for paid DLC, at least for my wallet.

Why didn't they just go back to the 20's logo? Clean it up a little and you have a nice classy throwback logo.

ATB, is your beef that this is happening to an establishment that has used the Redskins name for decades, or that it's just plain ridiculous for anyone to be offended by the word redskins itself?  Do you have an issue with the Redskins Hog Rinds trademark getting denied earlier this year, or Redskins Pigskins and Redskins Fanatics getting denied before that?

I think we need to step back for a second and discuss these Indian tacos. This sounds like something my stomach would be happy to be racist about.

Have you had Indian frybread before?  It's that, with taco toppings on it:

The problem I have with this is that government stepped in and voided a legally granted trademark because it was 'offensive.'

Rather than just ambiguously "offensive", would you say that the team name consists of or comprises immoral, deceptive, or scandalous matter; or matter which may disparage or falsely suggest a connection with persons, living or dead, institutions, beliefs, or national symbols, or bring them into contempt, or disrepute?

Just because we are the minority on this forum does not mean that we are wrong on the issue.


So you are saying the Native American's are right then.  stirthepot

Side note on the Native American / Indian.  Upon moving to New Mexico I learned that the Indians here prefer to be called Indians.  All the references you see around here pretty much all say Indian, from Indian tacos to Indian dances to the Indian Culture Center.  Generally, they think "Native American" is a stupid term.  Using just "Native" is acceptable.

I prefer whitebread over whitey. Whitey has a negative connotation.
I also prefer just "pale" as opposed to "paleskin".
Caucasian is just a bizarre word. Don't use it to describe me, thank you.

I wonder if these "Natives" care about my concerns?

If there was a cultural shift and pale whitebreads decided they didn't want to be called Caucasian whitey paleskins anymore, then yeah, I think the Indians around here would respect that.  Why wouldn't they?

Cultural shift? Is that what this is? Does this "cultural shift" include Natives getting more respect? My argument is that the disrespect because of a football's teams name wasn't there in the first place.

And you're the only one here that actually considered that turnaround would be fair play  thumbsup to that.

There's no cultural shift needed for the Redskin issue, because it's always been an offensive term.  Currently, Caucasian isn't considered an offensive term, so it would take a cultural shift for it to become one.

I have no idea what you mean about Indians getting more respect.  Are you saying this is happening because people respect Indians more than they used to?  If so, that sounds pretty great.  Are you saying this is happening because Indians are making a marketing play to get more respect?  Try and get more hits on their tribal websites or something?

So if I understand you right, the issue is about control?  Government control?  Control of the liberals?  Control over what?

And it's also looking like you think someone is saying that football fans of the Redskins team are being racist.  Who do you think is saying that?

And you also think that this is all brought on by greedy lawyers with their own hidden agenda?

Of course it's control...it's an attempt, as it is with the PC-crowd, to control what words are banned, illegal, etc. If you would just let the word go, is that not giving up control?

Ok, so it's not the government or liberals, it's the politically correct crowd that's trying to control what words are banned or illegal?  So far, what words have they succeeded in banning or making illegal?

Quote
The fans that don't care what the name of the team is, and just want to watch their team play, are being assumed to be racist if they disagree with any attempt to change the name.
Who is assuming the fans are being racist?  The PC crowd?  Liberals?

Quote
Lawyers aren't the ones that pursue this kind of thing? if Native Americans don't like the name of the team, why not just band together and over-run the stadium, force fan entry, kick the crap out of the owner, etc. Just using this for comparison sake. I would actually perfer to see this happen as opposed to the gov't or lawyers getting involved.
Ok, so if the tribe decides they have an issue with something, their only choice is to try and violently force someone to do what they want, because if they pursue legal action they're just playing into a greedy lawyer's hidden agenda?

jztemple, I know it's not your intent but you're seriously making me want to never buy a game on PC again if I can get it on a console. ; )

You know, I felt that way a few years back when I went from PC to console, but the very complexity of a PC, which can be very frustrating, can also be very liberating. You can run mods, you can tweak files, and you just have more freedom. Sure, it's not easy, but damn it does make the old noggin work which is probably a good thing to do at my age and being retired. And frankly, with a console I felt like I was just at the mercy of not just the game developer but also the console maker. 

That's exactly how I felt in the 486 era and a bit beyond, but now I look at your struggles and think of how my very limited daily gaming time would get turned into tech fiddling time.

So I downloaded New Super Mario Bros U, and it is also great. I clearly don't think like a "gamer" because I can't figure out why this system isn't doing well. Is it just the graphic processing power? 

I think that they completely lost the audience from the original Wii.  On multiple occasions I've seen shoppers in big box stores confused about Wii U versus Wii.  "Will these Wii U games work on my Wii?  Is the Wii U an add-on?"

Then for people like me, so far the system cost to available game ratio has been off.  I'm not against buying a Box that Plays Nintendo Exclusives, but I need more exclusives or a cheaper box.  I think they're finally getting the library built up enough to make me tempted, but I'd still like to see the price come down or see a great system+game bundle released.

Are you in the US? Because Nintendo is selling factory "refurbished" deluxe systems on their site with a one year warranty and Nintendoland for $200. All reports from many purchasers is that these are new systems. Completely new systems in normal retail packaging. It looks like they are the dented box variety of refurb. So you could go that route, you can still get MK8 at Target right now for ~36$ and you can then get a free game download. So roughly $250 after taxes and shipping nets you the system and 3 games. I would say that is a fair price.

Not to mention Target is going to do a buy 2 get 1 free on WiiU titles next week.

Thanks for that, if they really are just dented boxes then that is indeed pretty tempting.  I'll probably get a big temptation to buy this holiday season.

A little while ago I saw a lady playing what looked like a matching game on her iPad.  I've played many of these games but I don't think I've ever seen one quite like this.  Instead of a fixed screen like pretty much every one I've played, it seemed like she was scrolling around all over the place and just touching stuff to make it go away (so I don't think it was a swap type of match but I could be wrong).  I've searched through the store for "jewel" and "matching games" but haven't found anything that seemed right.

Anyone have any ideas, or maybe have a wife that plays a lot of these who might know?

Thanks!

It looked like a family game, right?  Maybe google "touching stuff family jewel wife swap" and see what turns up?

The models do indeed look amazing.  I've never been very good at painting miniatures, so it's heaven having all of these look so good right out of the box.  It also makes it really really hard to not spend way too much money on a game I rarely actually play.  But then again, I've bought models of Star Wars ships in the past just because they looked cool, so I don't feel all that guilty for building a collection.

I sometimes have a hard time playing on the mobile app. The devices that I arm, sometimes would arm immediately but a lot of times they won't arm until the player passed them. This could be due to lag but makes it annoyingly unpredictable and hard to plan ahead.

They should take a few seconds to arm, and then they don't activate until the player passes over them.

When you're being Hacked, Jam Comms will buy you about 15 more seconds.  Pop it later, though, when the circle is smaller.

I haven't gotten the hang of how tailing works, so I have yet to enjoy that very much.  Hacking I like, though.  I just wish hacking more encouraged the tactic of blending in with the crowd instead of hiding in dumpsters and such.  The former is way more fun, but latter seems way more effective.
