    Osama Bin Ladin Has Been Killed

    I do not think that "going nazi" on religion is the best way to get rid of it. I think, and I mentioned before, that it takes education. More science literacy in the world, and I mean more ingrained scientific method within our minds (see General Semantics), would help to create a generation of people who are not taught to blindly follow some invisible tyrant all seeing and immoral deity but who use their actual senses in order to navigate the world. Not saying it would end war and violence, but I would be willing to wager that it would drop enormously. If the people are well educated with scientific values then they will likely just throw away the old holy books themselves, retaining some for historic values. Creating museums dedicated to the religious chapters in human history lol OK sorry now I am just daydreaming Check out this little clip: (kill the music too unless you like it) take from it what you will. Oh and AB good luck out there... Get them Taliban *******s! As much as I like to play devils advocate, I am firmly on the US side of things.

    Osama Bin Ladin Has Been Killed

    Religion is the last thing humanity needs to retain as it progresses towards the future. Talk about debunking things... the major influences on peoples minds are of ancient and moronic origins. Get rid of religion and perhaps folks can get along better between the East and the West. That takes education, not bombs.

    Osama Bin Ladin Has Been Killed

    OK, granting 9/11 was not an inside job, how do you justify the illegal invasion of two countries and the subsequent death and torture of hundreds of thousands of people based on that criminal act? Now that the dubious official story claims OBL is dead we have brought justice to the crime and can now return home to live peacefully once more... right? What a joke...

    Osama Bin Ladin Has Been Killed

    Who are these experts that have debunked these various 9/11 conspiracy theories? Seriously, I have not seen one convincing one yet. Whereas the 9/11 conspiracy theorists and their supporters are quite convincing. If anyone has some links/references here please pass them this way. As for fake moon walking and people who claimed to have seen or been abducted by aliens... I have not seen any convincing evidence for any of that malarkey either. But that is not the issue here, the issue is that people think that because OBL is dead that the US has achieved some sort of victory. This is complete nonsense. Even as a symbolic victory it is pathetic. OBL denied his involvement for 3 years before finally suggesting that the attacks on the towers were inspired by the US destroying towers in Lebanon. This brings up Al Qaeda's ace card: Why were the towers attacked in the first place? US is an astoundingly hypocritical terrorist nation. I have seen little to suggest that the US hasn't orchestrated this mess in the first place and brought it all upon itself so that it may further its greedy economic strangling and holy wars. Meanwhile only the rich benefit while the poor get poorer because they took all of the profits and moved the jobs overseas to places where people still work for a pittance... but I digress... The blood spilled on 9/11 is not superior to the blood spilled in Iraq, or Afghanistan (or in dozens of other places). Is it? Cause everyone sure acts like it is.

    Osama Bin Ladin Has Been Killed

    Even if OBL is dead I still am not convinced that 9/11 wasn't an inside job. So to me it is a moot point. I never really cared about OBL. Five days after 9/11 OBL said he didn't do it, and for the next 3 years he denied being responsible. Then, in 2004 all of a sudden he said he did do it? All the while the US is blatantly using the towers destruction to run rampant for the interests of the wealthy. And investigations into the destruction of the towers and WTC building 5 which fell also, by third parties all seemed to show that controlled demolition was the cause of the buildings collapse. And the pentagon attack was a cruise missile. Show me evidence otherwise.

    Why the memorization game?

    Funny, I always missed that feature from CMx1...

    Quick update on release status

    I totally appreciate and prefer tentative release dates as that is a sure sign of intelligence and dedication to the craft on the part of the developers. But I do worry a little about their seeming lack of advertising. I want them to have all the glory that they deserve!

    Quick update on release status

    You know the guy who does The Atheist Experience cable access looks suspiciously like how I recall madmatt looked. And his name is even matt! Maybe someone could call in and shout out a plug for battlefront

    Quick update on release status

    I don't remember how I heard about the original CMBO... Just that I was big into Talonsoft and SSI's titles so I must have seen it referenced somewhere, maybe wargamer.com? I do remember being proud to see an advertisement for it in a WW2 magazine back in the day. Maybe I can venture to ask formally what is being planned in terms of advertisement for CMBN? Surely not a television spot!

    Ugh.....

    The suspense created by immanency is half the fun I think Such is a secret to happiness in life: Always have something to look forward to! And when it's released... the amount of nerdy giddiness and fist pumping jumping for joy that will inevitably result while it is downloading and installing will give way to sombre teeth gritting and armchair clenching as the patient and/or daring virtual battlefield gambles succeed or fail as the sun rises and sets and life goes on... and we find ourselves after some time looking forward impatiently for the first module to be released... and then the next one and the next and so on on into the sunset... as the tide ebbs and flows and the constellations shift across the sky...
  13. I was 15 while eagerly awaiting the release of CMBO. I'm 26 now. It all started when I was in Toys R Us of all places long ago as a kid and seeing a copy of Panzer General in the bargain bin. From then on, it was SSI and Talonsoft all the way and when I discovered Battlefront I was so excited. And now here I am 11 years later just as excited for the release of CMBN as I was for CMBO!!
  14. Well, can fausts and shrecks and zooks fire from warehouse sized buildings in the game?
  15. You know, I've been witness to a few peng threads before from back in the day. But I still don't know how it all got started. Where did peng come from? Who was the first person to start a peng thread? Has a peng thread ever hurt anybodies feelings? Maybe someone can save themselves from public shame and PM me if they have answers to any of these, life's, most meaningful questions... or not. I guess I'd be perfectly content with you all just sodding off instead. Dozy bastards...
  16. CMBN isn't released yet!!! Please fix or do somfink!!! ooooo shiny manual..... gahhh...
  17. No, that wasn't a bug that was Tyrespawn setting their move waypoints awkwardly so they were both trying to carry out his orders but it was jerky because of the cramped space.
  18. Ohh OK, that could make a big difference I guess. I'm excited as it seems to run great for you and I have a better rig than that! Though I am not using multiple hard drives. You know I also wondered how big those videos must be raw recorded using FRAPS, they must be huge! It makes sense to me now that you would record them to a dedicated hard drive Thank you for the response, and thank you for the great game battlefront!
  19. Hi I was wondering what computer system you use to run the game and on what graphics settings. Thanks for another breathtaking video AAR!
  20. That is exactly my feelings. Never quite got hooked on CMSF and its modules in the same way I did the original series. But I sure was proud to support battlefront! CMx1 were so good that BF is to me etched in diamond. I hope they keep up the good work for many years to come!
  21. I think that it wouldn't be bad as an option. Just as we have now an option to do WEGO or realtime, so might we be able to set a complete, partial or no Fog of War setting for our battles. This would allow some interesting scenario design options in cases where neither side really does know where it's going!
  22. Beautiful! Well played and I am sincerely impressed by and excited to play the QBs!
  23. What ever happened to Mad Matt??
  24. Hoorah!! Hoorah!!! Release must be so close now!!! Looks fantastic!!
