I got it from a European friend lol. I don't get it though, don't European releases usually come later than American? Why is Germany so uptight about violence anyway? Is it just the current political agenda?

Nah, itīs always been like this. Basically I agree, violence IS a bad influence for some people. I mean America is famous for doing the thing we do with violence with sexual content as far as I know.

I think I said this a few months earlier too: Our censors sometimes have a problem distinguishing between different kinds of violence. Itīs only a problem when thereīs violence against human beings involved and apparently to them Zombies are people...nice of them but incorrect.

And...yeah, since you slaughter millions of "people" in Dead Rising 1, it was banned a few months after release. I suppose the sequel will suffer the same fate. Sometimes the censors are a little strange though, as God of War 3 was a normal 18+ Release here. I donīt know itīs strange.

Bottomline:
Germany: Sex good, violence bad, easy to remember
But honestly, I still think itīs some kind of mental relic from the war. We as a people seem to be pretty afraid of violence in all forms, because we fear the past may repeat itself and blahblahblah, you get the idea. At least thatīs my impression...but enough of that. As much as I like to talk about this stuff, I guess most people here donīt care anyway and for good reason

As a country with that kind of history, I'd be more afraid of stuff like art and information suppression. But that goes on in every country, yeh.

I guess we never had a problem with the violence too much coz it's all far away, the America's being all isolated from the rest of the world.

Our history is just as violent as any other country's (except our country is only 240~ years old). America comes from a puritanical background, which allowed children to be present at lynchings or burnings. But remember, sexuality or nudity are much more damaging to a child than horrific mutilation, decapitation, or immolation.

That's too long ago for me to believe it's still relevant. I'm talking the past 100 years. That's close enough for people to relate to, in my opinion.

I really think that Halo:Reach should have probably just left the whole story out and just focused on multiplayer. The vast majority of gamers will probably play the first few levels, get frustrated, then go straight to online play. I can't even imagine the amount of racism and sexism that's being spurted online in Halo as I write this.

Heh, you should see the nerdrage on Gamefaqs about Dead Rising 2...some people just can´t comprehend that there exists a reality where german gamers get a game a week earlier than the majority of the US-Users on that board. It´s funny and sad at the same time...then again it IS Gamefaqs :D

Still a nice game btw, but also got some more Halo done today. A bit of firefight with some friends, nice stuff.

I love how DR2 is everything that DR1 was and more, and people will probably hate it for not being different enough. You just can't please people. The only complaint that I have is that the psychos are too strong to beat your first time through. You don't have the upgrades or weapons necessary to deal with them in the timeframe.

I havenīt compared it to the first, but my impression is that the text IS bigger this time. Oh and no more stupid calls from Otis either.
You have a Radio-Contact but apart from the urgent calls (Zombrex and Main cases) the contact will just leave a message you can read on the watch- or mapscreen if you donīt feel like answering.

And again: No survivor that I escorted (about 12-15) died on the way, not one, thatīs a HUGE improvement over the first game. They may hobble after you or you may have to carry some of them but they donīt die easily anymore and they are way better with weapons this time around. And you can improve their behavior further with a skill book.

I gave Minecraft a shot last night since it's still free for the moment. Wanted to check it out after seeing the videos in this post: http://www.destructoid.com/for-the-u...4451.phtml#ext

Pretty awesome. As a creative type who has a secret boner for cool architecture and no means to make it, it's neat to be able to build all sorts of tunnels and floating houses and rivers and shit. Not sure if I'll ever build a rollercoaster or any of the crazy stuff other people crank out, but It's fun to mess around with. I just wish night time wasn't in the game at all, cause it's not very fun.

I never did the Survivor-related things, I hated those guys. Might try it in DR2, their AI is way better this time thankfully.

Played a little Coop yesterday, quite funny even though the guy didn´t know his way around very well and almost died a couple times. I think I might be able to finish the story now (4th or 5th attempt)...it really helps knowing where the skillbooks are. Sadly there doesn´t seem to be one for the Combo-Weapons.

And totally overpriced! $5,000 is highway robbery for those specs!

I mean, I know Macs cost more, but christ.
