I love the multi-playability of this game, but I just left a forum where the game degenerated into racial slurs and top-class vulgarity.

I'm no square; I enjoy profanity and good-natured racism, but this was just out of control.

Why, in a computer game, does anyone get so hot-headed?

Well maybe thats because there is no such thing as good natured racism.

I was being a little facetious (although there is good-natured racism; in Brazil, for example.)

My point being that I'm by no-means sensitive to vulgarity or opprobrious remarks, but what happened in there today easily exceeded what could be construed as friendly pot-shots.

I'm just trying to understand how/why that can happen.

Too much candy, late nights, caffine, alchohol plus a demographic that consists of 99.9% males of an age range between 8 to 80 all convinced that they are right and every one else is wrong.

Alternatively take to monkies, give one a banana see what happens.

I'm guessing he is meaning the Ubi online game launcher vs. Hyperlobby.....

Try Hyperlobby insted....same riff raff and foolishness at times, but often on a "slightly" higher plane http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif
