Atelier Ayesha Plus is a new entry in a classic-JRPG series with a pretty paintjob, but does the classic formula still hold up?

Finally Broke My Crowdfunding Rule

I've had a long-standing rule to avoid getting involved in any sort of crowdfunded activities.  I didn't donate to Shadowrun or Wasteland, but I did buy and enjoy both of them (I'm plugging both of those games right now, just so you know they're good).  I haven't...

DAILY MANIFESTO

Medal of Honor 'Taliban' Changed To 'Opposing Forces'

Posted on Thursday, October 7 @ 19:25:13 Eastern by
After much hooplah in the media over the apparently outrageous, unpatriotic notion that players can choose to play as the Taliban in Medal of Honor, EA has buckled and has turned them into the much less threatening name of Opposing Force.Sounds like a physics problem with magnets.


Executive Producer Greg Goodrich, on the Medal of Honor blog, stated that:

"We are making this change for the men and women serving in the military and for the families of those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice - this franchise will never willfully disrespect, intentionally or otherwise, your memory and service."

But really, this is just semantics. When most Americans look at a Middle Eastern man with a gun and a turban, survey says "Al Qaeda terrorist". Maybe this whole brouhaha was a publicity stunt all along, but it might be a legitimate answer to military-base GameStops banning Medal of Honor from their stores. However, the Army & Air Force Exchange Service still hasn't been convinced of the changes and will still not allow military stores to carry Medal of Honor.

We can only guess as to whether the discs will come packaged with the switch or through a immediate patch on launch day.
