Windows 10 Review for Dummies

After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...

DAILY MANIFESTO

If You Build It, They Will Come... And Break It.

You might have noticed the world is full of jerks. For every person creating works of art, there's another ready to deface it. And so it goes with Forza 2.

360 Gamer has it's panties in a bunch over some user-created Nazi themed cars in Forza Motorsport 2. Forza has some really great tools for creating custom car themes, and it turns out some people are abusing that freedom. I'm going with, "Duh".

The developer already closes auctions with offensive material, and has an abuse form where you can report offensive cars (or copyright violations). Yet obviously, online pricks still persist.

What gets me is that 360 Gamer seems to suggest that this can be somehow 100% controlled. And besides, where do you draw the line on what's offensive and what's not?

They all need to lighten up. Ex-GR editor Joe Dodson was once forced to change the name of his WoW Tauran character "HinduCow", which is ridiculous if you ask me. Don't get me wrong, Nazi's are assholes. But just like they have the right to publish their moronic books and hateful websites, maybe we should just let them drive around in their little Nazi cars. Any controls on Nazi assholes exercised by the Forza staff is purely voluntary on their part and should be applauded, not criticized because it's not foolproof.

Anyone who's ever seen Counter Strike sprays knows it's only a matter of time before the game is full of cars covered in crudely drawn phalli, topless women, and kids in buckets. Give people the tools, and they'll create everything from the sublime to the inane. There's a reason you can't hold an interview in Second Life without being assaulted by flying penises, after all.
