    To be fair if you didn't rise to their nonsense they wouldn't revel in trolling you so much...... and that is all they are doing.

    "Is it just me or does this whole SteamOS and Steambox and Steam controller thing have FLOP written all over it?"

    Pretty much. The whole thing was a knee jerk reaction to the inbuilt store of Windows 8, Gaben got scared his cut on the PC market might take a dent so hastily announced stuff nobody wanted or needed and was not even designed at that point in a bid to keep the Steam fanboys on his side which worked at first.

    As time dragged on and we finally saw a few Steamboxes, they turned out to be pricey OEMs that are pricier than the normal PC OEMs but with even less upgrade options and most just laughed at them so Steamboxes are quietly going away.

    You will see a few more (as we hear in this very article) but OEM "steambox" PCs will disappear into the mist I reckon. They'll probably still throw out the OS and controller though. The OS is linux so I doubt MS have anything to worry about in reality there. The controller though, I'm not sure. There is a market for such a pad, a lot of us buy key mappers for games with no controller support. Certainly if it's a better solution than a key mapper I'd pick one up as a second pad to accompany my 360/windows controllers.

  • Controversial mass murdering game Hatred appears on Steam Greenlight

    @PlugMonkey

    Games have been the new scapegoat for society for a long while now. If mainstream "news" outlets see a story they can milk it will get a few days ranting and it will be forgotten just like every other gaming controversy.

    Well you are the one posting gifs to me saying "look it's wrong!".

    As I said it doesn't offend me I don't really care and I will probably get it and have a laugh as it is a nod to a game I enjoyed previously.

    You do seem to be trying to convince that is wrong no matter how offended you are.

    The actual game plays in the same view as postal and until we see more we don't even know if those close up scenes are even in the actual game.

    Even if they are I've shot people in the face in a game before, really isn't anything shocking I'm afraid. I'm sorry but the industry I know and have been buying games from is massively violent and bloody and has been for decades, that is nothing new. Sorry but it's a bunch of pixels that don't exist so it's hard to be offended.

    Can't you just continue being offended for me like you are instead of trying to convince me I should be offended?

    Er...not sure what feminism has do with anything. If you would censor this game that's you view and entitled to it I guess but I would say you are standing to close to the product if it offends you, move along to something less worrying for you.

    I honestly reckon this game will do more damage to the type of games we can play than anything else, because once this is released then watch the media go crazy and get pressure groups to pressure politicians into doing something about the videogame violence we currently have. Releasing this game could end up pushing more censorship onto the medium we love so much.
    It really won't change anything as it's nothing that hasn't been done already in videogames. I also doubt pressure groups will gain traction as it's not a big game in all the high street stores that mums and dads buy for the kids like COD or GTA.

    I dunno I really enjoyed Postal so not gonna worry about this one. Sometimes it's nice to have silly sadistic fun in videogames just like in film, books and even music at times.

    Are you barmy if you watch Saw or Hostel? No it's just some shock entertainment, I see this game in the same vein to be honest. I said before I think some are really over-thinking the game and painting all kinds of strange nutjobs buying in there heads when the reality is most people that will play this will probably do so for a laugh and nothing more.

    @edwardwokhands

    I agree "real" media affects people so much more than fiction ever will. I've seen racism grow, attitudes change, even fear of going outside. I even tell my Mrs to turn the news off as it's nothing but scare and hate mongering shite.

    It's the non-fictional media that's far more dangerous as people actually take note of and listen to that.

    Fair enough but you misunderstand there a bit, I never actually called anyone here a moron directly. If make believe media dictates your actions, yes, you are a moron but I did not aim it at anyone directly here.

    You don't like being evil from time to time in your make believe? Postal was a great game back in the day, I'm not going to be disgusted at a game because the horrific acts are not against "the baddies".

    That is what we were talking about for gods sake! :) Googly inferred media influences our actions so games like this are dangerous.

    I'm not getting into that gamergate stuff, I agree Target or Valve can do what they want although doing it to pander to a few whiners stinks. It's not censorship just a store not selling something (I actually said that here).

    One thing though, if you think reviews of video games should have political and social commentary it's time to put down the controller and go outside. They are bloody videogames....

    I'm not conflating anything, my view morons base their real world actions on fiction (what this was actually about originally with googly), you dislike that view and went with it.

    You won't win any kind of "argument" there is none, fiction is fiction real world is real world (to me anyway). You and others want fiction to affect your lives or think entertainment media is more important than it is go for it, there's a whole lot of real stuff that shaped my life and how I am....oddly enough I'm not the one getting my panties in a twist about content I don't have to buy or even see.

    I'm not talking the mentally unbalanced, if we included them then we have to start looking at all media for a small minority.

    COD and counterstrike are often cited as games mad shooters play, should we start worrying there?

    Slippery slope there my friend, slippery slope indeed.

    Isn't that the point though, you don't want to see them all as one dimensional cannon fodder but to me (and many others) that's all pixels are.

    I do quite frankly awful things in videogames, I read shocking books, I watching shocking film and TV. It's all one dimensional as it's not real to me.

    It seems the ones disgusted seem to put more stock into these fake worlds and situations people make up for profit. Maybe if you didn't put so much importance on the fake world you would not get so upset in the real one?

    I've never met a single person who claimed FICTIONAL media changed their outlook on the real world about them so I doubt I'm the only human to see fiction for what it is.

    I will concede there are certain works of fiction that have influenced people for most of our existence but those ones are best left well out of a debate on modern entertainment :)

    Maybe, I feel more real world media is used more for propaganda in that sense. As an example The British WW2 war films were really about making people feel we were winning more than changing views.

    I don't consider any games art myself I see them as toys to play with, sometime they do it with humour, scares, shocks whatever. Still just GAMES.

    Again though the term "art" means sod all to me in the modern world so probably not one to get into that debate.

    I dunno entertainment can be used for propaganda but not really part of this debate. It's down to you whether it affects you and if you let fictional entertainment alter your perception of reality you are a simple in my view.

    Of course I'm a real world type of person so even the news is nothing but nonsense scare mongering to me. The world outside is full of nice people (it is amazingly! :) ).

    Not sure where you are drifting to TBH, you claimed fiction media "influences" your actions in the real world. To me that means more than emotional responses.

    Remember the debate is about a violent game and you implied it could influence actions in the real world. No doubt an emotional response from Hatred will happen just as any gory or violent media....but will it actually influence how you look at the world and others? Nah, Christ if that was the case I'd have be a mad serial killer long ago :)

    Well to be honest I'm not one to think of videogames as art so no I don't see Hatred as art at all, same as any other game. They are games we play. Obviously art is different things to different people and some games are certainly quite artistic but that whole "games are art" thing is silly to me. They are toys that entertain us nothing more.

    @Great-Googly-Moogly

    You are talking different things there though. Feeling an emotion at media is different to being influenced by it.

    If media influences your actions in real life you are a moron, there is no way around that.

    Propaganda is something quite different to entertainment media (although entertainment media can be a tool of it as we see with all the war films of WW2). That's really a different debate though.

    TBH we keep going in this circle of justification, fantasy setting or not it really doesn't matter. like I said if you need that safety net to pretend to yourself fine but don't think we all do.

    In all honestly, if you can't understand why humans would want to play in fantasy violence you don't know our species very well. As I keep saying this game is not something new or special, it's all been done before and violent bloody games have always been there (even where innocent people are harmed).

    Depends on their state of mind I guess, I'd like to think a well balanced intelligent humans are not influenced in their real lives by works of fiction.

    Certainly I can say a work of fiction has never affected me in any way other than enjoyment. I dunno I know in my head media is a lie for the most part so take it for what it is without it reflecting on the real world...probably why I never upset and expect everyone to offnded like me about content and simply don't consume what I don't like

    Maybe that's your issue with this, you seem to think entertainment media has more meaning and importance to a person than it actually does. If that is the case I can see why you may find this game upsetting or even dangerous...but not everyone puts such untrue importance on make believe entertainment and see it for what it is....make believe entertainment.
