Given how crap F3 and F4 were I have no major expectations of this. A pos 4 times the size of normal one is still a pos.

Free speech means the ability to state your political opinions without being discriminated, fired or otherwise punished for having them.

This guy is clearly punished for his opinions. The fact that the company had no problem with his tweets when he made them and only took "action" when a bunch of people who do not even play the game got "offended" clearly proves that.

It's deeply troubling that in 21st century North America there are people who not only encourage totalitarian behavior but actively seek it out and applaud it when other engage in it.

It's as Carl Jung said, the more you live in comfort and ease the more you subconsciously wish to be dominated and abused by those around you.

You have a great ability to ignore context that hurts your assumptions.

He worked for a company, he openly abused and mocked that companies potential customers.

I am willing to bet all the money in the world that you would not be saying that if the person fired was a woman or gay or an ethnic minority.

Why would you willingly use assumptions to justify or support a preconceived notion?

You want to make yourself dumber, you want to live inside a fallacy, thats exactly what you need to do for it.

It's simple capitalism: the same ethic which protects freedom of speech also protects a company's right to drop you like a hot screw when your public activities threaten to cut into their public relations. Just ask Alison Rapp.

Except that it does not. A company is not legally allowed to fire you over your private opinions unless you openly claim that your statements are the company's statements. Free speech.


A company is allowed to fire you if it can prove that your actions at work or at home and the statements you make in the company's name cause it material loss.


If this guy decides to sue two things will happen. He will be rehired and then quit in exchange for a large sum of money, which the court will force the company to pay. The company will be forced to close as it will not be able to afford to pay him.


Alison was fired because she signed an exclusive contract (not allowed to hold a second job) while holding down a second job. I think Nintendo acted ridiculously in her case but a contract is a contract.

This is just dumb. What happened to free speech.Reply

Nothing happened to free speech. He spoke freely without being censored by anyone; his employer didn't like what he said so they fired him.


Don't confuse free speech with consequence - free speech, the former still exists the latter hardly ever has.

My hope is that they drop the ridiculous art style of 2 and inqusition and return to the more historically grounded style of origins. The world being a twisted opposite of real europe was half the charm of the game.

I don't what's worse. That I fell for it for about 4 paragraphs or that it sounded like something the modern games industry might actually come up with.

I tried playing PoE but it felt like it was made with software that can be used to make your own CRPG - nothing in the game feels unique, deep or engaging. You can peek into other characters thoughts which awards you with a hideous wall of text. I'm ok with reading but the story just wasn't there.

To the original point. Always start from the beginning, Baldur's Gate 1&2 and Planescape etc. It's very hard to go back when you have spoiled yourself with modern mechanics and graphics.

the enhanced edition looks quite nice for all 3 games. i like them more than poe from a visual point of view
