I remember reading something about that when I was in high school. The key difference was that the Nazis tilted the swastika on a 45 degree angle, thus created the symbol that most of us are familiar with today.

You're right Mike...needs better save feature...I liked the Call of Duty approach of autosaving for you constantly. Having a manual save anywhere should be standard practice.
Someone should e-mail one of the devs or post on their forum (if they have one) to ask about this feature. To not include an auto-save button or to only have it save after you finish a level would be completely asinine. I know I wouldn't buy this game if that was the case.

I assume you're using the latest drivers for your Audigy? With my A2 ZS, I have the audio set to EAX 3 and it works perfectly.

Doh! Thanks! I totally missed that you could change to EAX 3 . Thought that you only could "check the box" .

Don't satanism and occultism classify as "alternative religions"? This game encourages hate crime, so I wanna see some picketing satanists in the news.

lol plz religion is a belief and worship of God whereas satanism and occoltism are the exact oposite to religion in that they are the worshiping following the devil / satan w/e u want to call him.

but with the broad meaning of alternative religions i supose u have a point.

Max brings up a good point, and something to think about.

Who do you think villified the pentagram and 'magic'? Everything that isn't of the Abrahamic faiths should not be considered evil, ie Satanic. Really what's in this game is just some elements of 'Hollywood' Satanism/evil.

Anyway, my understanding is this game will have a multiplayer PvP aspect. I look forward to that, it should be good fun. When I blow your arse into the air with a grenade and stake you, I will let you guess what team I am on.

Wouldnt it be great if real world holy wars were settled in a virtual arena? Ah well, one can dream.

People use "God" like there is only one brand to worship. Sorry that's a assumption in some faiths. You are talking about "YHWH" if you want education try this:

Actually, 'modern' satanism doesn't have anything to do with the biblical devil. So it's kind of moot saying it's "anti-christian", "anti-family", and "anti-society", when it really is about "anti-worship". Even the Vatican has stated that there is no devil.

Besides, we all know good and evil are subjective terms that have no real basis in reality.

Right?

Right!

I am for freedom of choice, freedom of thought. If people want to believe there is only one God and they know the right way to worship it, I say fine. Go for it. I am just reminding them that is part of only one belief system. Not the "truth", save in their system.

I have actually played the demo through a couple times now, and I can say it should shape up nicely as a complete game.

And on sound, I have an audigy platinum card in my rig and it was putting out strange noises for the first time during the demo the other night. So I set the acceleration to basic. That seemed to fix the problem.

This thread is getting splintered into its orignal topic and this philosophical one. Please, let's keep posts strictly about the game from here on out. If you want to discuss side issues then feel free to start a thread in an appropriate forum. Thanks!

Indeed! You're the first one to mention it. You're my favorite.
