I got it from a European friend lol. I don't get it though, don't European releases usually come later than American? Why is Germany so uptight about violence anyway? Is it just the current political agenda?

OxBlood Sep 19th, 2010 06:36 PM

Please donīt, I already have a scar on my pretty face ;)

Nah, itīs always been like this. Basically I agree, violence IS a bad influence for some people. I mean America is famous for doing the thing we do with violence with sexual content as far as I know.

I think I said this a few months earlier too: Our censors sometimes have a problem distinguishing between different kinds of violence. Itīs only a problem when thereīs violence against human beings involved and apparently to them Zombies are people...nice of them but incorrect.

And...yeah, since you slaughter millions of "people" in Dead Rising 1, it was banned a few months after release. I suppose the sequel will suffer the same fate. Sometimes the censors are a little strange though, as God of War 3 was a normal 18+ Release here. I donīt know itīs strange.

Bottomline:
Germany: Sex good, violence bad, easy to remember :lol
But honestly, I still think itīs some kind of mental relic from the war. We as a people seem to be pretty afraid of violence in all forms, because we fear the past may repeat itself and blahblahblah, you get the idea. At least thatīs my impression...but enough of that. As much as I like to talk about this stuff, I guess most people here donīt care anyway and for good reason :lol

As a country with that kind of history, I'd be more afraid of stuff like art and information suppression. But that goes on in every country, yeh.

I guess we never had a problem with the violence too much coz it's all far away, the America's being all isolated from the rest of the world.

DougClayton4231 Sep 19th, 2010 09:00 PM

Our history is just as violent as any other country's (except our country is only 240~ years old). America comes from a puritanical background, which allowed children to be present at lynchings or burnings. But remember, sexuality or nudity are much more damaging to a child than horrific mutilation, decapitation, or immolation.

Fathom Zero Sep 19th, 2010 09:03 PM

That's too long ago for me to believe it's still relevant. I'm talking the past 100 years. That's close enough for people to relate to, in my opinion.

FUCK THAT

i've been owning noobs on halo reach still gives me that weird warm feeling specially after i stabed a female spartan on the head

DougClayton4231 Sep 20th, 2010 05:41 PM

I really think that Halo:Reach should have probably just left the whole story out and just focused on multiplayer. The vast majority of gamers will probably play the first few levels, get frustrated, then go straight to online play. I can't even imagine the amount of racism and sexism that's being spurted online in Halo as I write this.

Fathom Zero Sep 20th, 2010 05:42 PM

I can.

OxBlood Sep 20th, 2010 06:39 PM

Heh, you should see the nerdrage on Gamefaqs about Dead Rising 2...some people just can´t comprehend that there exists a reality where german gamers get a game a week earlier than the majority of the US-Users on that board. It´s funny and sad at the same time...then again it IS Gamefaqs :D

Still a nice game btw, but also got some more Halo done today. A bit of firefight with some friends, nice stuff.

DougClayton4231 Sep 20th, 2010 07:16 PM

I love how DR2 is everything that DR1 was and more, and people will probably hate it for not being different enough. You just can't please people. The only complaint that I have is that the psychos are too strong to beat your first time through. You don't have the upgrades or weapons necessary to deal with them in the timeframe.

man as long as the text is fucking readable without getting a migraine and there isn't an obnoxious dude constantly harassing you calling you i'm fine with more of the same

I havenīt compared it to the first, but my impression is that the text IS bigger this time. Oh and no more stupid calls from Otis either.
You have a Radio-Contact but apart from the urgent calls (Zombrex and Main cases) the contact will just leave a message you can read on the watch- or mapscreen if you donīt feel like answering.

And again: No survivor that I escorted (about 12-15) died on the way, not one, thatīs a HUGE improvement over the first game. They may hobble after you or you may have to carry some of them but they donīt die easily anymore and they are way better with weapons this time around. And you can improve their behavior further with a skill book.

I gave Minecraft a shot last night since it's still free for the moment. Wanted to check it out after seeing the videos in this post: http://www.destructoid.com/for-the-u...4451.phtml#ext

Pretty awesome. As a creative type who has a secret boner for cool architecture and no means to make it, it's neat to be able to build all sorts of tunnels and floating houses and rivers and shit. Not sure if I'll ever build a rollercoaster or any of the crazy stuff other people crank out, but It's fun to mess around with. I just wish night time wasn't in the game at all, cause it's not very fun.

Otori1987 Sep 21st, 2010 03:16 PM

I just dug out my old 64 after giving up on aion again, playing ogre battle now

darkvare Sep 21st, 2010 09:14 PM

i restarted dead rising but the achievements are effing punishing :\

Fathom Zero Sep 21st, 2010 09:25 PM

I just have 720. Never got Frank The Pimp and other hard shit like that.

OxBlood Sep 22nd, 2010 06:10 AM

I never did the Survivor-related things, I hated those guys. Might try it in DR2, their AI is way better this time thankfully.

Played a little Coop yesterday, quite funny even though the guy didn´t know his way around very well and almost died a couple times. I think I might be able to finish the story now (4th or 5th attempt)...it really helps knowing where the skillbooks are. Sadly there doesn´t seem to be one for the Combo-Weapons.

The thing is, their classifications are totally accurate.

Phoenix Gamma Sep 22nd, 2010 04:48 PM

And totally overpriced! $5,000 is highway robbery for those specs!

I mean, I know Macs cost more, but christ.

Fathom Zero Sep 22nd, 2010 05:21 PM

Yeah. I'm not even angry or anything about that anymore. If that's what people wanna do, then go for it. :\

darkvare Sep 22nd, 2010 08:42 PM

took me about 50 tries but i finally got that stupid achevement about surviving a fall by assasinating an elite

OxBlood Sep 23rd, 2010 04:59 AM

I´m at the Overtime-Boss in DR2 and man, that battle sucks ass for multiple reasons...
