Literally first sentence is "This is a sponsored post with support from VyprVPN."


They're not disguising anything, it's pretty plain from the start that it's an ad.

Rainbow Six Siege will start handing out bans for in-game hate speech next weekRainbow Six Siege will start handing out bans for in-game hate speech next week

And R6: Siege has officially entered it's death spiral.

The problem with "hate speech" is that it is defined according to the person choosing to be offended or those choosing to be offended on behalf of someone. The definition of hate speech changes based on the individual speaking and the individual or persons who hear it. The "N word" is offensive when used by a Caucasian towards an African-American, but may not (and usually is not) when used by an African-American towards another African-American, unless of course a Caucasian chooses to be offended on behalf of the African-American, which of course is up to the Caucasian so it may not happen.

Due to the difficulties of defining "hate speech" it irrevocably leads to the banning of words, phrases and titles that are used in otherwise benign ways making it that much more difficult to communicate with each other. This is anathema to a community that depends on team and player cohesion, especially a multiplayer FPS that relies on teamwork.Reply

How long is the death spiral going to take?

So it looks like they've found how to milk R6 after all the run and gun failures for the series.


They've seriously screwed up the whole idea though. In the actual Tom Clancy book (and first few games), Rainbow Six is an elite squad that is made up from different NATO countries, not teams from different countries.


Oh well, disappointment probably awaits...

This article is so biased against the fans it's hysterical. There was a lot more wrong with HOMM VI than just the changes to the gameplay, and if you don't know what I'm talking about you obviously never played it.


How typical of a modern gaming rag, self-flagellation of gamers, instead of holding the studio accountable for a hardly playable, uPlay cursed, too unlike any HOMM before it to be considered an HOMM game, game.

100% true. heroes 6 wasn't bad because it was different, but because it was badly designed. Spell casting system was poor, introducing cooling off period destroyed combat balance and made magic so weak."Design your own hero" approach in theory was interesting, but in practice lead to creation almost the same heroes over and over again. I like new faction , and possibility of converting towns, but it's not enough.

1. Get excited because article and others say that this will be like X-Wing.

2. Read about game, realize it's going to be a space-based PVP MMO (nothing like X-Wing).

3. Proceed to ignore game.

Yep, that was my process too. It did remind me to go check on Enemy Starfighter though, but that doesn't look to have had a blog post since November.

.

Anyone know of a single player, campaign based starfighter game in the pipeline?
