okay how is "mutilating children" any sort of set-up for a joke.

I thank you for elaborating on that because otherwise I, as an I Am Not A Linguist In Real Life But I Play One On The Internet, would have had to.

Old dictionaries were more or less encyclopedic (if they weren't pure word lists); and yes I agree, it is bizarre, but they are an ... interesting source for gauging expected social views.

Interestingly enough, pagan shares the characteristic of its original meaning referring to rural people; EtymOnline suggests that heathen may have been a loan translation of it.

It also cites a dictionary from 1902 on usage:
Pagan and heathen are primarily the same in meaning; but pagan is sometimes distinctively applied to those nations that, although worshiping false gods, are more cultivated, as the Greeks and Romans, and heathen to uncivilized idolaters, as the tribes of Africa. A Mohammedan is not counted a pagan much less a heathen.

Bottom line: They like their good lady cops they can rescue from near-death so she lets them walk.

Previously on SPN: I had real life stuff that kept me from posting my comments. I'm confident they were sorely missed.

I can't talk about KOTOR, but as for Mass Effect, I think it's ~hardness~ is really overstated. I mean honestly, it's more like Dragon Age IN SPACE and with, well, THE MASS EFFECT instead of magic. I hesitated for ages playing it due to pretty much the same reason (that and the lack of proper gay LIs at first), but I ended up loving it heaps, perhaps even more so than Dragon Age.

I would base it more on the question do you like shooters, because it's very shooty and if I weren't playing it with trainers in godmode, I probably would never have finished it.
