  1. Eh. 1) The average citizen will know jack about Jack. Hack, ask an average citizen about Alpha Protocol, and they'd think it's an new RPG made by Obisidan. Jack may be a newbie, but he should know that spies shouldn't walk around and get noticed by the average plebian, because an 'average pleb' may be another spy. 2) A repuation system would be nice, only if you organize it by Faction, like how GTAII and Merc1 handled it. You got 4 factions, and they want you to accomplish missions. If you accomplish a mission succesfully, then you get 'increased repuation', and being friendly with the
  2. You should have. The account was a year old, but the actual video was posted on : March 24, 2008. I still think it's fake though.
  3. One thing I need to know: Some peopel on the offical forums are screaming about the implausiblty of the IG, the SoB, and the SM all killing each other in the Soulstorm campagin. What do you guys feel of it? Oh, and DoW 2 would be interesting to look at.
  4. Egad, what happened? The form format has changed. Before, it was like a normal forum, where you scroll down and read all the posts. Now, you have to go and CLICK on a post to read it. Do you know how to fix it? Or am I stuck with it?
  5. Not so certain though. Well, one, if you die and there is no Heaven or Hell, and there is obivlion, you can't feel any feeling anyway, so you don't feel your life is a waste. Another thing is that while Heaven is supposed to be eternal, Earth is not, and Earth will eventually get destroyed anyway in 5 billion years, and the human race is likely to go excitnt before that time period. Therefore, if you devote resources to Earth, you know for a fact that your effort WILL be lost in the void. But if you devote resources to helping you and your fellow humans go to Heaven, there is a chance that
  6. Am I the only gamer who want some sort of government regulation? Studies has shown that violent video games can cause aggressive behavior. Granted, not as much as other people claim, but we should make an effort to have some sort of policy. Plus, it might be me, but I'm utterly bored of seeing violence. It's not fun at all. Stop protraying blood, it's not that important!
  7. Bonds took steriods, Bond admitted it as such. Did Bond knowingly taken Steriods? Bond said he didn't, that he got flaxseed oil, and he thought it was flaxseed oil, and it really wasn't flaxseed oil. Therefore, Bond does not get an asterix, because we don't know if Bond knows or if Bond did not know. "Innocent before proven guilty". Bond may be lying under oath, as that is what he was accused of. But lying does not equal taking steriods.
  8. I would like to make a new topic, but I realize it might be better to just combine it here. Walsh, I need you reaction to this news event that is freaking me out and could very well signal an end to the "Iraq Getting Better" topic. Shia Militas Are Using Lull in Violence To Fight Each Other
  9. But is westernisation the same as becoming a 'puppet'? Even Japan manitans its worship of the emproer, and their history textbooks believe that fighting WWII was the right thing to do. You still have some traditional elements, just that it's combined with western ideals. It's a hybrid. I think this 'hyrbid' is a possible solution (combining aspects of Islam and westernization), but in the end, since Islam has 800 million followers, you can't get everyone on board. Its strength is at the same time its weakness.
  10. While this is true, the vast majority of Iraqis are indeed Muslim. In a way though, you are right, it is inaccurate. It's like saying, "Oh, America is a Chrisitan Nation with Chrisitan values", which is true, but also simplistic. That why I didn't add Gulf Storm to the list of "American Military Defeats". The United States won that war. Fair and square, because of their limited objectives. There are also lots of other military victories as well: The Revolutionary War, the Settler/Indian Wars in the 1860-90's, the Invasion of Hawaii, the Spanish-American War, the Phillpine Insurgency,
  11. Don't play into the hands of extermists. By stating that you want to change the region and make it pro-Western, you are basically admitting that you want to turn Muslims into Western puppets. And, well, uh, Muslims don't want to be puppets. Nobody does, after all. It's understandable. To stop extermism, you have to buff the moderate wing of Islam who wants secularism and believe the US is a 'model', but at the same time, keep the 'yoke of Islam' and their traditional idenities. *** ...The PKK is still doing terror attacks in Turkey, and an Turkish intervention is possible. The dispute ov
  12. I know many people love, er, I mean, know of WWI. However, I am afraid people are not so interested about the actual questions that sparked World War I. The actual debates, the struggles. Okay, I don't know much either, but I do remember only two questions during that time period. I need you guys to answer them. In Honor of Remembrance Day. Question of the Balkans: Should there be a pan-Slavic state, known as Yugoslavia? There were lots of nationalist setinment to unite the Slavs, which were in the indepedent nation of Serbia and in Bosna-Hergizationa, controlled by Austria-Hungray. In
  13. http://www.amazingben.com/rpg.html ...wow. Check this out. I understand full well that this is a pardoy/satire of actual RPG plots...but, I don't know, I sorta...well...enjoyed it. Hey, it's better than actually grinding in an RPG. I can see the generator took some inspiration from the first KOTOR game as well. You can set gerne, your alignment (of good or evil), and also backgrounds and music to go along with you reading it.
