    Oh no, that's not very nice now is it?
    But you realise that this isn't real don't you?! Nothing you say makes any difference to anyone or anything!
    It is quite amusing reading all of your silly little comments, and far less sad than writing them myself.

    I never really understand the derision the MHoC gets. As monopoly is to business or Call of Duty is to war it's a great bit of fun and you learn so much. Definitely more interesting than debating politics the ordinary way.

    To be fair, Monopoly is played by families during long winter evenings when there's not much else to do (plus it has almost nothing to do with real business) and Call of Duty has even worse reputation than these model debating clubs (neckbeards, vulgar 13-year-olds, virgins, other no-lifers, etc.)…

    I have to agree with the critique at least partially: the amount of time some of us spend on here is indeed sad.

    And the vast majority of shooters are completely unrelated to war, a realistic MMS would not sell.

    The point was merely that the games that have you generally not firing whole clips, that have you "dying" very easily, and seeing combat only every now don't sell as well as the ones where you run around with half a dozen clips and just hold the trigger to kill the non-stop horde of enemies whilst you sponge every bullet on the planet without even flinching.

    Like i said you can't include every single aspect of war like situations into a 1st person shooter ! . most 1st person shooters are more about the enjoyment of playing rather than the realism of them .

    The point was that they are nowhere near realistic

    Exactly. That's how I picture most of these guys.

    How about ARMA? Sells rather nicely as far as I know.

    That is what I was thinking of, doesn't sell that badly all things considered, but nothing on your average fps

    Arma 3 has also sold a lot more units than I thought, can't really get into it though, the ridiculous ease of being killed and my lack of patience at times don't go together too well.

    P.s. in my defence, I shall say it's still not the most realistic

    A lot of online ideas or forums get criticised. Think of the comments made about Facebook or Mumsnet, for example.

    Anyway, back to MHofC business. Given the new members of one of the coalition partners, does the Government plan a ministerial reshuffle soon?

    Not again surely?!

    There may be (in all likelihood will be) tinkering for the remainder of term, but I'm not planning another total overhaul.

    January marches on, is can the government offer a more precise time scale for the publication of the budget, or are you going to continue with the typical "it will come when it comes and despite general inactivity from the chancellor we are on schedule"?

    The budget is nearly complete with all MPs taking an active role in discussing what is included. At the start of term there was difficulty with the Liberal Chancellor being away but now there is a new leader we have appointed a new Chancellor. As a government we would rather take time to publish something than rush something, the quality is what matters, we expect to see a budget shortly.

    It's coming along but only James Milibanter can give you an actual date. It'll be towards the end of the month. From what's been posted in the Government sub so far, it looking good, but I would say that
