Crytek USA Collapses, Sells Game IP To Other Developers

Osgeld Re:schadenfreude (121 comments)

to your point I got crysis 3 free with a video card, at first it seemed that it was going to be a worth while shooter. I dont generally play shooters so its got to be a good one for me to get into, well it didnt take me very long to figure out I could just camp behind a box and for the most part all the baddies would walk right up to me after I made a stink.

I probably played half that game sitting behind a box camping, boring as hell, haven't bothered to finish it

Jesse Jackson: Tech Diversity Is Next Civil Rights Step

Osgeld Re:I sort of support what Jackson's saying, has me (514 comments)

"are all too accustomed to having "the prize" and opportunity dangled in front of them, and then snatched away once someone has got what they wanted from that black person"

what in god's name are you babbling about? I almost find that offensive, like there is some fat white man with a tux, cigar, and a monocle saying dance for me and you can have some cornbread, oops too late!

The prize is the same for everyone here, get smart, work hard and you will do just fine, and if anything we as Americans bend over backwards to give it to "minorities" aka black people with numerous programs, if they take advantage of it great, if not tough IMO
