  1. Jags come back one day

  2. :lol: How about... Intimated Rooney Overated Nervous Yanked Also: CapeLOL
  3. North Korea training at a public gym. Gotta give the lads credit. Against the best team in the world, they played with the hearts on their sleeve...
  4. I can't for the life of me figure out how to save in a different slot (PC version mind you). Sounds retarded, I know.
  5. So far I'm loving this game. It's head and shoulders above the Gothic games IMO. One question though: Is there only save slot apart from the autosave & quicksave? If so, I'm all for that actually, since it adds to the "hardcore" nature of this RPG. However, if it turns out to be anywhere as buggy as the Gothics then perhaps I better back 'em up.
  6. I don't have a Sig-runt. I have a Justice (awesome!), Emo-Nate, Alistair-Mage, Low-Brow Dwarf, & Viconia.
  7. Is there anything important in the locked chests? I don't really want to have Nate in the party (since he's boring) but he's the only guy I have who an pick locks.
  8. The current consensus seems to be that the persistent CTDs are afflicting the Windows 7-64 bit OS. Which, incidentally, is what I've got. Am I right to assume you're not using Win 7-64? That's just it. I am using Win 7-64. Found this which may be of help. Possible crash fix Good news: The "fix" seems to have stopped the crash to desktop! Bad news: The "fix" replaced the CTD with a crash to BIOS, forcing me to enter windows in Safe Mode!

  10. Still haven't bought and played the expansion but on my PC the memory leak with the OC were never THAT bad. Sometimes after 2/3 hours the loading times would become Witcher-like () but that was it. ....... So you're telling me they managed to make it worse with the expansion? Yes, they somehow did the impossible by making the leak worse. In the original game the leak would gradually increase the loading times from 10 seconds to 10 minutes. Now, in addition to the loading times, the frame rate gradually drops from 60 to 20. But there's nothing gradual about the CTDs. They hit you in the face like Chris Brown on Rhianna.
  11. Alright that's it. I've been sticking my head in the sand until now, but no more. The PC version of Dragon Age if jagficially craptastic. From a memory leak that won't relent to incessant crashes to desktop courtesy of the new epansion pack, this game is borderline unplayable. I consider myself to be fan of Bioware, but this PC version is pure garbage. If it was any other company you lot would be crying bloody murder. But because it's Bio, this shamelessly poor coding is considered an mere eccentricity. Such a pity my Xbox 360 is currently laboring under the Red Ring of Death.
  12. So is this "Feastday" dlc thingy any good?
  13. And yet we'll still play it for laughs if it's a guy being raped. Hey, it's not rape if you enjoy it, right?
  14. This isn't a fundamentally Japanese issue, Grom. This is a universal issue concerning the decency of mankind. Human depravity is still depravity be it Nippon or Timbuktu. Condoning acceptance of rape and torture will only further desensitize our inhibitions against debauchery. For good or for ill, this is what happened to homosexuality. Now, I'm in no way saying that homosexuality is immoral, but, it was considered to be such yesteryear. But given the mainstream acceptance it acquired by the mass media over the last generation, it became socially kosher. Rape and torture, however, are not like homosexuality. Rape and torture are inherently vile and affront to all decency. However, the desensitizing effect of mass media makes no such distinction, and it will eventually create indifference if not tacit assent to these intolerant practices. By your own admission, it's already happened in Japan. Unfortunately, tolerance of intolerance is no tolerance at all. I may be wrong, but are you comparing societies growing acceptance of relationships between consenting individuals as a sign that society will accept nonconsentual relationships? I can't tell, but are you also arguing that some acts in video games will "desensitize our inhibitions against debauchery" but not others? Because if you're going to argue that "rape and torture" are desensitizing, then surely the same argument applies to any game with violence in it as well (which pretty much rules out any game that has physical conflict between entities). Or am I missing something? You're right Amentep, in that if you take that principle to its logical extreme it could, in theory, rule out a great many things. But that's in theory. In reality, violence in an of itself is not comparable to rape or torture. Violence may be a part of self-defense. Violence may be part of justice. Violence is always part of war. But these things are subject to justification. They can, a great many times, have a moral leg to stand on. Rape, torture, and pedophilia is without justification, and that's what makes it intrinsically debase. As legal scholars call it, it's the distiction between a malum in se (wrong because it's inherent wrong), versus a malum prohibitum (wrong because the law says so). This is exacerbated by the fact that most of us are either indifferent to or enthusiastic of gratuitously violent media, and so corrective action would likely be futile. The cat's already out of the bag and the desensitization has already taken place. But as RPGmasterBoo eloquently said, "at some point you simply have to draw the line." Thankfully, American and European society hasn't sunk (yet) to those depths of nonchalance with respect to rape, torture, & pedophilia. Hence, the current public outrage. We still hold some things sacred it seems. But if we continue down the path Japan have walked, then it won't be long before there's hentai on Cartoon Network or rape games on the shelves of Gamestop.
