    "A lot of games have let us dispense of nazis with hot-leaded-justice, but what about groups that have since perpetuated the Nazi's occult-lunacy-derived racial superiority? Sure, the KKK existed before the Nazis, but Mafia 3 is set in 1968, which is already third-wave Ku Klux Klan."

    Man when did video games become so political. If I want to mow down a KKK rally, Nazi's, Imperial Japanese, Russians/Soviets, Middle Eastern terrorists or gang members by god I'm going to do it.

    October 7, Friday? That's an odd release date isn't it usually Tuesday?

    I'm surprised GTA didn't get to this first

    That's a little disappointing

    That's true. Especially after 5 where you could kidnap female hitchhikers and take them to a cult.

    10/7 baby. Also did the ultimate edition for Gears 4 so I get early access for that one on 10/7 as well.

    As someone who played the first two, I'm disappointed to see the direction try are going in with this one. If they wanted to make this one a spinoff with a different tittle that would be cool. But in the past the whole point if these games was to become a made guy and rise up in mob. There's no blacks in the mob. It's just more PC bullshit.

    Plus story wise I don't get why Vito would ever go to New Orleans. I don't wanna spoil anything but if you played you know what I'm talking about. I'm still gonna play it I just wish it was a classic mafia game. The first godfather game was epic. Two wasn't as good but it was fun.

    Mafia 1 and 2 were great. It was so cool to shoot up the entire environment in 2. One of the few games that used nvidia physix.
