The comparison with the film was just to serve the point that the definition of what is propaganda is very much down to point of view. The core of the point I’m trying to make is that I think it’s…

I don't need to read your mind. I say it's arbitrary because it must be - as it would be if I made a claim about a certain work being propaganda, rather than merely having political themes. If I…

Well, what I'm suggesting is that your distinction between "political themes" and "propaganda" is arbitrary, and is dictated by your political views.

BTW, could you list some of these RPGs that…

Yes, and I wonder if that statement would have triggered all this nonsense, if other scraps hadn't been misrepresented by people stimulating their SJW detectors.

You really think there arenít many highly regarded films that have strong political themes and positions? How many war films with the express intent of being anti-war, or criticising discrimination,…

I remember watching it for a bit, years ago. Talk about making it up as you go along - I can scarcely imagine where it is at this point! :p

I think what an intelligent person would realise, is that it's irrelevant here whether you are speculating or stating fact - in either case one bases one's position on some kind of evidence and…

You are quite fond of telling me I'm not very bright, which is not very nice, and hurts my ickle feelings :( . It's not much of an argument, though. I actually think you're probably a fairly bright…

LOL. Watch the bloody(!) trailer. You can see all those dudes giving you consent before you beat them to death with sledge hammers, pin them down, and drain their blood.

I think there will always be some sort of PC gaming scene. It's the consoles that should be worried, and I suspect that's where the AAA market will go.

My bet would be that in a few years, the streaming services will take over, and it will be rather like subscribing to Netflix, Amazon and HBO to get your games. Competition will be based heavily on…

Yeah, just doing some basic quality curation is a big plus, IMO. Steam is not so much like a good shop, but wandering around a giant warehouse where people are free to leave fresh turds on the…

Yeah - when they sell products I want in places other than my preferred stores, I generally just steal them. I feel pretty badass for doing it, too, so I like to post about it a couple of times a…

Well, I'm not an "Epic supporter". To me this isn't a partisan issue, of choosing one team or the other. They're all multibillion-dollar corporations, and I regard all of them with suspicion. It just…

We'd scarcely notice the difference. By being the overwhelmingly dominant distributor, there are already countless games that are, in practice, exclusive to Steam. That's kind of the point.

I actually agree in principle on DRM - I object to running blackboxed code that treats me as an untrusted party on my own PC. But, I'm also a realist, and I don't think it's going anywhere. If you're…

That's a complex case involving antidumping, countervailing duties, and government subsidies. There's nothing illegal about selling products at a loss in the US - stores do it all the time as loss…

Entirely up to you, mate. No way of knowing if it's one small problem, or more seriously flawed. Personally, I wouldn't wait to find out, because faulty motherboards can throw so many inconsistent…

Sure, each to their own, as I say. I did watch a bit of their show, and it set my teeth on edge. I guess I just like a much more restrained, low-key style. To me, that sort of DM-ing, and that kind…
