    The engine is tempermental. Hey, the PC versions may have issues. (Many of which can be fixed with some fan patches.)

    The PS3 versions? Mind-boggling disasters. Skyrim, especially. Sure, patches...

    It's a double edged sword. In today's patch-happy environment, games sometimes end up MORE broken. The recent Fallout games are particularly problematic. The newer patches introduced regressions...

    I could be wrong. Some people who got it told me it crashed frequently on day 1, but patches soon followed. That's what I meant by "on release." I also heard FEZ's worst savegame bug is still present...

    Is that related in any way to the martial arts in his Sherlock Holmes movies?

    MS allows the first patch to be free, and any subsequent patches cost $40,000. This is intended to discourage hotfixing.

    Fish failed to properly test the first patch, and it broke a certain...

    Jack Reacher made 216 million dollars, and cost 60 million to make. That makes it a financial success. Yes, it underperformed, but personally, this stuff gets blown out of proportion by the twisted...

    Knight and Day made $261,930,431 dollars at the box office. I don't think implying it was a bomb is fair.

    I've got several, but one would be Spider-Man. Now I like the character in theory. Interesting message, and the name rolls off the tongue. I wasn't a fan of the movie trilogy, but I did like The...

    Replacing the actor playing Iron Man is problematic because of who the character is - an unlikable jerk with some noble qualities who is meant to grow on the audience. If you're gonna put a new face...

    That's a completely different essay, talking about the US justice system. He made the samewhat oddly worded statement that any government who passed same sex marriage was his enemy and he would...

    You are ignoring the preface. Deliberately.

    "...my call to not enforce it except in flagrant cases was actually, within that context, a liberal and tolerant view -- for which I was roundly...

    "CANNOT BE PERMITTED TO REMAIN EQUAL CITIZENS".

    We've been over this. He is not referring to civil society in a large chunk of the essay. He is talking about Mormonism. In the essay, he is calling...

    You're the one equating the death penalty with murder, Carabas. Me, I see it as a useful tool of justice which is unfortunately open to abuse. The only reason I oppose it is because I know that...

    It's fortunate that Orson Scott Card opposes the persecution of homosexuals then, isn't it?

    And no, I was not referring to Churches. I was referring to any and all charitable organizations which...

    Ever heard of monarchism?

    The potential for abuse lies in same sex marriage being used for political leverage. Removing charitable status from anyone who opposes same sex marriage/homosexuality,...

    Accusing him of things he neither did nor said is slander. Saying he wants homosexuality made illegal? Slander. Saying he advocates armed uprising? Slander. Saying he thinks all homosexuals are...

    Australia. We don't have seperation of Church and State here, technically. But that's a complicated topic.

    Like Card, I don't like the right or left all that much, but I'm more wary of the left...

    I have an esoteric taste in comics. Mostly I lurk. And I stick up for anyone getting unfairly harassed. If you can point me to any other threads where a respected author is getting slandered, I'll be...

    I'm not pro-democracy. But he is. And it's hypocritical to reap the benefits of democracy then reject democracy when it gives an outcome you disagree with.
