It has an option to reduce "disturbing" cutscenes in the single player portion. Of course you can't disable violence altogether, since this is a game based on a World War 3-type scenario. I definitely won't let my DS 11 play it or watch me play it. But I enjoy it immensely as an adult who knows how to discern the difference between a violent video game and knowing not to take that type of view outside of that fabricated environment. It received an M (Mature) rating for a reason - too bad many parents overlook that rating and let their children play games like this.

Yeah! I wish parents would make their kids go to bed instead of playing this. I'm tired of getting my butt kicked by 12 yr olds!

...and that!

Even my XIM3 setup cannot overcome the 'age factor'. But at least my butt is kicked a little less now.

Has anyone played Temple Run from the iTunes store? Pretty fun and addicting. My kids and I really enjoy taking turns.

Zello?

Resurrecting an idle thread. Do any of you use Zello? It's a free global Push-To-Talk application for iPhone, Android, PC and Mac. Instead of talking one-on-one, you can create a channel and talk with people who share the same interest as you. I heard about it on a non-Disney podcast and have been lurking on a couple of channels to see how it works. Of course, you have those that push the First Amendment to its non-kid friendly limit but there are some channels that are pretty good.

That sounds like something that might be cool for the DisDads to do!!

OK . . . is anyone picking up any of the Before Watchmen comics that DC will start putting out next week?

I'm undecided, but will probably get them all anyway. I'll definitely be grabbing Minuteman and Silk Spectre.

Sounds like the Roger Wilco we used in my Unreal Tournament clan, but on a phone/tablet. Gonna have to give it a listen.

Yeah it does... Can we make a channel or whatever, or is it moderated?

Zello Channel

In case anyone's interested, there's now a DISdads channel on the Zello network.

Go back 7 posts from yours; Brattosa asked if any Dads were using Zello.
