  1. The biggest question is totally subjective here, for instance...U-Play OSP, the neon-blue situational Hula Hoops, the security blanket/invisiblity cloak, the mini-missiles, the HULK, the RC-piloted weapons systems, the 4 man Co-Op limit, the sheer amount of us who will pirate the thing in the first place, and on and on ad nauseam. ____ Curb your enthusiasm, Rocky. Joyious?
  2. Howdy boys...long time long time. This still going on? Oh, whom am I kidding, Of course it is, what is surprising however is the level of honesty in those quotes you are all in a huff about. Surprising in that the reps would so easily give up the golden-goose that is/was GR:FS(PC)...how else to lure in more suckers to purchase their latest unrelated shovelware by baiting them with that illusory :FS beta access. ____ In related news... If ever there was a time to not cross-post a topic!!! ____ Typical.

    Conspiracy Theories

    Perhaps, no, it will save time if you actually read what I have posted regarding this. Reading comprehension is fundamental, eh.

    Conspiracy Theories

    DS, "TinFoilHats.Com" is a blanket term for the origins of these looney tunes, i.e., 911truth, loosechange, chemtrailcentral, prisonplanet, etc. Was that really so very hard to figure out? Believe me, -although it should have been fairly apparent by now- that if/when the need to call out a fellow member by name arises, I'll/I jump. Weak dodge if you ask me, DS. Really weak.

    Conspiracy Theories

    ^ To para-phrase... Following another link from the good folks at TinFoilHats.Com is not required when the first was sufficient, and where crib notes would suffice to fill in any blanks. How 'bout it DS? I'm giving you the opportunity to cherrypick the very best, the juicy stuff. Errr? ____EDIT: Heard a good one a while back. It involved ELF eco-terrorists under the direction of the DNC aboard a DPRK diesel sub and Deepwater Horizon...anybody have any utube video links?

    Conspiracy Theories

    Well, actually, I believe DS did in fact state that the graphic presentation was improved. My real question was to whether in addition to that if additional changes were made... as in if a more brooding, sinister soundtrack was dubbed in, if additional witnesses have come foward to shed more light on the subject -perhaps someone of Pierre Salingers' status -before that whole Flight 800 conspiracy misadventure that is, or if some of the good-old counter-factuals were further revised ...or embellished. The subject matter was not/is not new to me as I actually participated in that Zeitgeist topic to which you reference... and had seen enough of the particular source material prior to that topics OP. ____ To each his own. As stated in this topics OP some of this sites members derive enjoyment out of conspiracy theories, as evidenced by some of the posts contained within...although for some of us the entertainment value is generated specifically from some of those posts.

    Conspiracy Theories

    @DS: No idea...really, I'd have thought that you were following along with this parody, all along. My mistake. For the record, I was responding to your request of a response and for that following another link from the good folks at TinFoilHats.Com was not required, when the offical record will do. @Rocky: Oh, really...something new on this that hadn't already been reported on...years ago? Any chance on getting some crib notes on this new interpretive history? I'd hate to have my IP history get me caught up in some Predator/Raptor/Carnivore type dragnet, if you know what I mean. Insert appropriate imoticon here.

    Conspiracy Theories

    Fairly easily countered, there is the flight manifest of American Airlines Flight 77, the remains of those unfortunate passengers and government employees & contractors, along with the aircraft debris recovered at the scene. DS, did any of those military and law enforcement witnesses that were 'there' offer any testimony to witnessing any of the pre-staging of the conspiracy you seem to be suggest and just how do you secret in a goodly amount of a 757 past all of those metal detectors, or human remains and the other various combustibles past the sniffers? ...or did they happen to witness an orbiting 747 fire one of those directed energy weapons that are all the rage these days and that would account for the damage? Sure it does...you just refuse to accept it. The planes were different, the angle of attacks were different, and the levels of construction of the structures were different.

    Problem with the MR-C68 Weapon Mod

    Just a stab here -no longer have the game and cannot check- but this mod was released prior to the v1.35 revision and may not be compatible with it.

    Collateral Murder

    @DS: The (German) papers of the time ('45-'47) were filled with articles of volk going missing in the dark of night and if they (collaborators or agitators -never very clear which) were ever found it was usually with an unhappy result. Depending on the source they were either A; done in by the Werewolves or B; spirited off in the back of a GMC to parts unknown. The Occupation Forces Command was not exactly interested in telegraphing any discontent but if you look hard enough you can find accounts of M8 armored cars duking it out with organised groups making their last stand in some potato cellar...soldiers terminally relieved of their weapons, supply trucks being ambushed, etc. The vastly limited scale and lesser intensity might have something to do with the facts that Germany was well aware by then of what awaited them from east of the Vistula should the western powers depart,and that half of the Fatherlands surviving male population were preoccupied elsewhere...eating the remainer of their jackboots in one of our Ally Uncle Joes' gulags. The cessation of major offensive operations did not then -nor does it today- ever mean the cessation of conflict -or to parse it if you choose- war. Have you never heard of gallows humor? Do you happen to know just how many tours or how many sorties these guys have done/flown? Pretty quick to judge are'nt we. ____ You could be on to something though...if we were to wire up and mic every swinging Richard out there we would never even have to leave the contonment areas. Just rewind and review the tapes, announce the war lost before conducting it, and feel really confused about our lack of decency and compassion...safe at home. Nah.
  13. I think that that needs a qualifier...as in - There is nothing like a little bought and paid for postive reinforcement in the press (Read: Payola) to convince yourself you're on the right direction, despite all evidence -from all other sources- to the contrary. Ubis' problem is that some of the regular outlets (IGN, etc.,) no longer seem to want to pay to play along. ____ And as for that wake up call, well, I would not count on it.

    Conspiracy Theories

    BTW: Patriot Act has a direct relation to 9/11 (I assume that's a typo or quick reply without thoughtWould you like to try again? To say nothing of the Imoticon feature. 4 separate groups aboard 4 separate flights...each group responsible for a separate action of a combined operation which should be a fairly simple concept to grasp. I read the topic title as "Conspiracy Theories" full stop, as if soliciting replies from both sides of the divide, as evidenced by the OP. Is this, or is this not an open forum with all members free to determine for themselves whether to participate, or not? False. Some of us just require a little more than pie in the sky wonderings to go off all half-cocked.

    Collateral Murder

    First, technically the Soviets were a member of the Allies and second, yes they would have, and third, they were still at war with Germany post unconditional surrender -in a technical sense (See: WWII; Germany, Occupation of; Werewolves & Vampires).

    Collateral Murder

    @Big: Hence, the original question. ____ Perhaps the aircrew should have approached to within effective range of those Reuters cameras to sort friend from foe face to face so to speak, or phoned home to Washington for advice from the lawyers. It's not as if this is an actual shooting war in a hostile environment afterall. Monday morning quarterbacks.

    Conspiracy Theories

    Who, exactly, is conducting these overflights and what, exactly, is being dispersed? laughing gas? How did you get the antidote? ____ You will just have to resign yourself to the fact that by lumping all of these isolated and unrelated developments (9-11/Patriot Act, chipping, fingerprinting, chemical mind control from above -Lord, etc. ) or factors into some kind of grand plan by some sinister un-named NWO clan that you are bound to get some blowback from those of us lacking the proper context, which only you seem to possess. Or that it could be something else entirely.

    Collateral Murder

    Saw the head of WikiLeaks on the Daily Show a few months back pimping this story. He admitted pretty freely his willingness to embellish a story -or was it just the headline- for the greater good. ____ @Big: Fall off the wagon?

    Are the Net Police Coming for You?

    ^Too bad the Govt. isn't using that filter/logger for any of their agencies...could save them from some of those embarrassing PR nightmares the press manages to drag up to fill a news cycle.

    Conspiracy Theories

    Yes indeed I agree, there are many aspects that show this, although one major aspect is "NORAD became dumb for a day" doesn't cut it for many.What, exactly, was NORAD supposed to have done for this particular situation? Welcome to the madness.Have you ever played Risk? This was just another example of good old fashioned geo-politics. the enemy of my enemy is my friend -right up until he ceases to serve the intended purpose at which time he ceases to be a friend. Add to that the fact that he will most probably have his own motives and future designs and there you have your sum total. Enemies are fungible, and always have been. 10 years? Someone has a short memory or has not resided on this planet for long...the above describes the human condition in a nutshell.

    Gabrielle Shrager talks to IncGamers

    I'm sure that they're well aware of and played Ghost Recon but publicly referring to it would be counter-productive in their marketing/hype of :Future Soldier. If the target audience is unfamiliar with the franchise and its history, well, so much the better...and probably explains a few things. ____ This has been asked (and unanswered) before but if the above is true why is the Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter section labeled as GR: Advanced Warfighter 1. Is Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter sold anywhere in the world as GR: Advanced Warfighter 1?

    IGN gameplay video (Includes convoy arrival)

    The first date of release i think was march 20210?.Ahh, well now that date would make more sense. ____ From the sepia overload to a blue-hue'd filter wash. Ubis' devs should really leave their cubicles and step outside occasionally.
  23. What exactly were you looking for out of an expansion...a security blanket? J/K The fact is that the game lends itself so easily to modding that users are able to get a jump on the developers with content additions. That's nothing new, nor is the fact that in almost every case BIS' content will be better optimized, and obviously, stock.
