That's clearly not Garrus, it's Venari. Racists.

@IvorB Chainsaw bayonet - if that isn't just the worst way to die then I don't know what is.

@DrStrangelove I can understand being disgusted by such content, but for me that's part of its appeal. Mostly the violence in videogames is treated apathetically at best, I for one have never felt guilty about gunning down any of the armed goons in any CoD game and no CoD has ever tried to make me feel guilty about it. In such scenes as the airport level however, it invokes a feeling of disgust, and I love that the game can create that kind of emotional response. For example, when I first played through that level, I didn't fire my weapon until the swat teams arrived, but I felt utterly helpless to stop the slaughter because I knew I had a mission to do. This brewed only what I can describe as 'Vengeance Fuel' for the rest of the game because I hated Makarov for what he had done.

@DrStrangelove people being tortured are most likely to tell you what they think you want to hear, rather than the truth. Still though, in a game where you're essentially hunting humans it seems a bit ridiculous to to criticise them for featuring some torture as well.

Torture is represented in other forms of media, no reason why it shouldn't also feature in mature games. Hell, cinema even has the torture porn genre. Although the moral choice thing is stupid, Sam wasted the first two guys and presumably the guy he brought in, why would he spare that one fella just because he spent about 20 seconds longer with him?

Rented servers could not have ruined Battlefield 3 for me more. It went from my favourite online game to being almost unplayable depending upon the tyranny of the mods or the skill of the clans who pay for the servers vs the skills of the rag-tag group of random gamers whose job it is to face them. I would have bought all the dlc, probably via the subscription service, if they didn't decide to piss on everything.

You're right Bioware, I totally like spending more money than I do spending less money...Jesus, this is too stupid for a punchline.

As unlikely as it is, if any of the rumours flying around about the next Xbox and PLaystation are true I'm definitely sticking to the Wii U.
