The German Strafgesetzbuch (Criminal Code) in § 86a outlaws "use of symbols of unconstitutional organisations". This concerns Nazi symbolism in particular and is part of the denazification efforts following the fall of the Third Reich.

The law prohibits the distribution or public use of symbols of unconstitutional groups, in particular, flags, insignia, uniforms, slogans and forms of greeting.

You got schooled son!

You are looking for examples in the PC realm correct (not iOS/Android)?
DOTA, TF2, Hearthstone and LoL^^
TBH I don't think there is "FTP done right". A difference in perception on the matter between us.
The only MMO I played (TERA) went F2P and I stopped playing.

"When you start off playing Diablo, progress is swift and rewarding. Then it slows right down."

No! A good game is challenging all the way through. Sometimes tipping the scales slightly to make you feel more powerful at the end. I just installed 'Deer Hunter' on mobile. The game is piss easy at the beginning, so you don't uninstall right away but gets almost impossible very fast so you shell out some cash.

"Same thing in Clash of Clans, only you don't have to sit at your computer and click for 8 hours, you just have to go off and do something else for 8 hours."

So not playing a videogame is an improvement?

"This is far more easily digestible for a casual gamer."

I am a core gamer. Why should that concern me?

Starbreeze: Syndicate was "a lost battle from the get-go"

Ducanoff

6 years ago

"If we didn't do an exact copy of the game, they'd hate us. If we did do an exact copy, they'd say we didn't innovate. They were never ours to win; it was a lost battle from the get-go."

You can't be serious. That's just very clumsy deflecting. I never played the original Syndicate and even I knew the reboot was a stupid idea but for very different reasons than the developer assumes.

It's one of the few GC games that I own. The critique is spot on. The game feels more like an alpha version or a proof of concept. Still the beats, the core idea and the heroine are cool.

Yeah! Just like the movies "Battlefield Earth" and "Wing Commander". People should stop complaining and just be happy they got to watch a movie!

Why are games exempt from critique and fan ramblings?

Also stop using "butt hurt"

EDIT:
"Highlander II" has director's cut and revised versions. No medium is protected from bad writing, fan backlash and attempts of correction.

"There has always been a little bit of mystery there and a little bit of interpretation"

Seriously? I knew beforehand that they would use the "it was meant to be interpreted" cliché. Why can't Bioware ever acknowledge its failings? Other developers do (see DE:HR).
Ugh, Bioware...

I gotta be honest, the differences are incredibly minor... calling it "leagues" above the console versions is really stretching it.

I bought Mass Effect 1 and 2. I bought all of the DLC (and I hate the concept of DLC!). I bought the pre-order bonuses I wasn't able to get at game launch on eBay.
I had the Blood Dragon armor from my Origins copy.
But I will not buy an overpriced chump edition.
F*** this game and f*** you too Bioware.
