Also, if you're going to cite Plato (presumably Republic on the banning of undesirable arts), you should be prepared to address the totalitarian state he recommends, along with its perfected state ideological apparatus.
Edit: Is it me, or are people really touchy about being asked to think?
No, it's not just you. You should see the replies I got from someone named "dsch."
Sorry to post something B:I related in this thread for a change, but... yeah.
Not gonna lie, I know next to nothing about the game but I preordered simply because the preorder deals make it worth it.
What's more, as a libertarian leaning video game player who happens to take moral objection to video games that let you kill children, I can finally get round to playing a game that I imagine is gonna be like a GCSE essay on Rand. Looking forward to this treat.
Edit: Incidentally, what got the spoiler thread closed? I don't want to look in there.
Hivemind WiT just went up.
Seems quite positive, don't see the word DISGRACE in there at all.
PCGAMER gave it editors choice and score:
Slightly muddled, but it’s a muddle of beautiful scenes and spectacular combat set in a breathtaking place.
Eurogamer gave it a 10/10.
I guess it will be almost impossible for any other game coming out this year to top that.
Yeah, from skimming the RPS WiT, my assumptions hold true. It is like Bioshock 1. Decent game, nothing amazing, with a divisive plot. I for one hated Bioshock's plot as I felt it was lazy and ill thought out whereas other people claim it was genius and "meta" and deeply philisophical and junk. Because people have different opinions (it is just that every opinion that isn't my own is wrong :p).
Of course its gonna be overrated,first reviews are always 90,10/10,goty shit material wowowo.
Yeah, all first reviews are always 90... I agree that scores are generally higher these days, but they don't hand out perfects very often.
To those that are waiting for the midnight release, you might want to head over to your graphics card provider and update your drivers. Nvidia released a new driver today with performance gains for Infinite. I assume AMD has or will do the same.
I think this will be a good game, but overrate because "fanboy journalist".
I hope is a good game, because I bought it.
I think I finished Bioshock 1, but never finished the 2 (got it for $5). I like the settings, I want to explore more than combat.
Been playing a few hours now and I'm loving it :) a bit of a VERY MINOR not even story related but an easter egg spoiler (Dunno how to spoiler tag this so stop reading now. NOW. Seriously, right now if you don't want to know!):
Seems our beloved Mr. Jim Rossignol has a bit of a cameo as a pervert right near the very start of the game :)
