Re: Steam Summer Sale 2015

Well apart from being metaphorical speech its a well known historical fact. Whenever people who were slaves all their lives were released (either by their masters or outsiders) they came back and asked to be ENSLAVED. Although slave life might be hard its the only one they know, we value stability in our lives and are afraid of change even if its probably to our benefit in the long run.

When the Israelites left Egypt Moses walked them the first 40 years in the desert to let the slave generation die off and breed a generation of free people (who will later also die off for 40 years due to being stupid at mount Sinai). That slave generation constantly whined to Moses about wanting to return to Egypt and how being a slave there was better than being wherever they currently were in and facing the various challenges they faced.

Take a more modern example: Is there a single dictatorship that got removed from outside and became democracy ? Or free in any way ? What would happen if you kill off Comrade Kim in bad Korea ? Whenever slavery got abolished in any of its forms it happened from inside, the African-Americans, the colonies etc. And even then the process was not immediate.

Foreign powers beat the shit out of * Germany and they became democratic pretty much immediately, leading to them being one of the more stable states in the world today.

Except we pretty much dictated every aspect the governmental system of postwar Germany, more recent example haven't had the power to forcibly install such a system.

Re: Steam Summer Sale 2015

Germany's experiment with democracy began much earlier and it was their own choice. When hitler rose to power that system was abolished but there was definitly a change in perspective. Germany is interesting in that it had 2 generations of free people and 1 less of a slave and more of an idiologically brainwashed generation. What is even more interesting is that the last free generation grew out of terror from their own deeds (or their predessesors to be specific). It made an immediate impact, nevertheless it was their own consensus to "improve" themselves and distance themselves from the * regime.

Re: Steam Summer Sale 2015

Back on topic, I got AC:Unity for half off. I was hoping for 66%, but my understanding is that the daily sales are usually as discounted as any given game's gonna get, and I can't say I'm surprised that they're a bit reluctant to discount a game so new so heavily. It'll get much cheaper when Syndicate comes out, but eh.

Hey that really didn't count ! You can't do stuff like that:

"Is there a single example of anybody going back in time that we have ever recorded ?"
"Yeah in 'Back to the Future'-"
"Wha wha ? That doesn't count ! Its a-"
"Its recorded (xD) and its going back in time so quit your excuses qq "

Re: Steam Summer Sale 2015

okay I am genuinely confused
that reasoning for it not counting is basically "it's a work of fiction" - and don't say it was just an example, because if you don't supply a general reasoning beyond the example, I am left guessing and have a right to be confused...
the Germany switching from a dictatorship to a democracy after they lost WW2... was not fiction?
also last I heard the change in mind and turning away from * ideology was partly facilitated by the American occupiers actively showing the population the crimes of humanity (holocaut, concentration camps, etc.) commited by the *, which had been held secret from them and which they would not have found out by themselves, leading to considerably more force behind the anti-nazi movement that followed.

Ended up getting Mass Effect 1 and 2. They really suck you in to the story. It's 3:30 and I've been playing Mass Effect 2 for 6 hours.

Those are pretty much the best games in the world. Steam says I've played ME2 for 107 hours. Despite the hate ME3 gets, IMO the gameplay itself is actually the best in the series, with my only concern being that the enemies are a bit less diverse than in ME2. The ending sucked, but the game's still absolutely worth getting.

The hell do you mean it didn't really count? It's exactly what we're talking about.
