You mean doges.
Yea it happens from time to time and is equal parts humbling and weird. I usually stop for a chat, I like talking about the work. It’s great to have people’s feedback, and it’s a nice reminder that we make stuff for living, breathing people and not view counts.
It doesn’t look as good as that 2012 E3 demo, but it still looks pretty great. But look, how many big games are coming out on the PS4 any time soon? If I was in your shoes I’d probably pick it up man. All that Lego Marvel is gonna do is depreciate.
Let’s just say I’m a great first date.
There is practically zero resentment towards English people now. We still love beating them in sports, but there is an understanding that the blame for a lot of Catholic treatment rested on the British government / armed forces, and not the people. That’s why the majority of Irish people were against IRA bombings. Except that one time they almost killed Thatcher - I think most Irish would have been okay with at. And English people too probably. You get your weirdo hardline anti-Brit every now and again, but they’re just idiots and have usually never left Ireland.
Go visit Ireland, it’s a good laugh. Also if you want to learn more about the time we call ‘The Troubles” then watch Bloody Sunday. TRAILER HERE. Wonderful, if heartbreaking, film. Directed by an Englishman too.
I’ve always been a fan of trading in games I’m not likely to play again, especially when they still have worth. Lego Marvel is a good shout, but if you’re not sure about Watch Dogs, maybe stick the balance on a store gift card? I’m not sure if you can do that in America (I’m assuming you’re living over here) but when I worked in GameStop that was what most of the heavy-traders did.
If however the deal has to go instantly onto a pre-order (which sounds like something GameStop would do) then I think Watch Dogs is a safe bet. I’m not hearing my press friends loosing their minds over it quite yet, but it’s a solid bet. Also if you don’t like it, TRADE IT IN!
No idea. My twisted mind.
So first off, the relationship between The Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland has always been fine. The violence is between Catholics and Protestants in Northern Ireland. The former who align themselves with The Republic, and the latter who agree that Northern Ireland should be part of the British ruled United Kingdom.
I’ve never even stepped foot inside of Northern Ireland so I’m by no means an expert. But my understanding is that today the situation is a lot better. Sectarian violence is very low and culturally, wounds are healing faster than they’ve done in the past.
The subjugated Catholics in Belfast (and in other cities across the country) were thought of as trouble makers, often resulting in disproportionate use of violence from the British Government. The IRA’s were a reaction to this, and though their activity didn’t help this matter, it eventually forced everyone to come to a peaceful solution. The past two decades have seen a lot of the hardcore quieten down. But the skeletons of that time still remain, for now.
An appropriate comparison would be the situation between Israel and Palestine. Where the Israelis use the activity of Hamas and other dissident groups to justify disproportionate violence and cultural theft on an entire society. It’s just sad that it takes the death of so many people to turn public opinion and shape new futures. I’m very proud of my brothers in the north. As a society, all of them have managed to achieve something others have struggled with for centuries.
And it can be replicated elsewhere.
(And thanks for saying it, but I have no problem talking about my country if people are interested. It’s my duty really.)
Somebody else recommended Rune Factory 4 if you don’t think Nintendoges are fun enough!
Nice work, kid.
