Kinect Gears of War: Exile game canceled by Epic Games

April 9, 2012

Kinect Gears of War: Exile game canceled by Epic GamesThe rumored Gears of War: Exile game will never see the light of day. Cliff Bleszinski, Epic Games design director recently confirmed that the project was scrapped.

News around Gears of War: Exile first surfaced back in January of 2011 when Epic Games trademarked the name. According to sources, Gears of War: Exile was to be an on-rails Kinect game. Also, an insider revealed on the Xbox 360 World Magazine that the game would be unveiled at E3 last year, but was no where to be found at the trade show.

Bleszinski confirmed to Gamespot recently that Exile was indeed an actual game that was under development at the studio, but has since been canceled.

Bleszinski stated:

Let’s just bury the hatchet now. Gears of War: Exile was an unannounced game that I can’t give any details about that has since been cancelled.

This news comes on the heel of the lackluster reception of Kinect Star Wars, which managed a 55 on Metacritic. If you recall several E3’s ago, Kinect Star Wars was once touted as Microsoft’s poster child for what a hardcore Kinect experience could be like. It will be interesting to see if Fable: The Journey will be able to succeed where others have failed.

    This is good news. Epic would be insulting all its fans if that game saw the light of day.

  2. Philistine:

    Yeah. . I’d have to agree.

  3. FahKinSuPah:

    Speaking of Gears of War it was featured on friday’s episode of CSI:NY.

  4. phranctoast:

    It irks me that Star Wars Kinect has such a big marketing budget for a flop yet MS didn’t bother to advertise Alan Wake.

    lol…the delay hurt it the most. Many people would have bought it and the 360 Star War bundle during the holidays, when Kinect was hot and parents were buying stuff without looking at the reviews.

  6. phranctoast:

    I doubt parents are looking at reviews anyway. I don’t see Star Wars Kinect as any attempt at drawing the hardcore audience. This is one of those games that MS should also avoid releasing on kiosks to avoid potential loss of customers.

  7. Roca.:

    “This is one of those games that MS should also avoid releasing on kiosks to avoid potential loss of customers”

    must be why every Kinect demo at E3 was acted ;)

  8. ncaissie:

    I really want the star wars 360. It looks awesome but not at fuckin $500. Come on! I’ll wait and buy a used one. Lol

  9. phranctoast:

    Whoever buys the Star Wars 360 is gay and stupid ;)

  10. FahKinSuPah:

    You know somewhere some fat starwars nerd is in his undies playing the Star Wars Kinect game pretending he is a real jedi.

    That nerd is probably CAD.

    “-Lost Planet 3 Coming to PS3 in 2013″

    Why not 360!?

    And LOL at the article. How long has the Kinect been out now? We’re still yet to see a hardcore Kinect title.

  14. ncaissie:

    “Whoever buys the Star Wars 360 is gay and stupid”
    I agree. I won’t be buying it and I just like the look of it. I don’t want it for the retarded game.

  15. ncaissie:

    I’m the type to get sucked in on special edition consols and I’m pissed off that Sony only did it for the PSP. I wanted the halo reach 360 also but never picked it up. I have had to resort to custom skins for my ps3. Which sucks because that one died on me. I may see if I can swap tops. I paid $20 for a sweet batman/superman skin. I ordered custom skins for my kids ps3s also. Lol

    “This news comes on the heel of the lackluster reception of Kinect Star Wars, which managed a 55 on Metacritic.”

    If there is one thing I’ve learned about Kinect reviews is that they are not to be truted. I did that with two games Rise of Nightmares and Power Up Heros. I wrote them off and then when I actually got to try them and they were awesome games. I’m getting this game eventually. It’s the number one game on the UK sales chart so it’s hardly a lackluster.

    Just watch these reviewers and they hardly take it seriously or they not doing the movements correctly. Following instructions is key and I’ve seen too many just doing what they want to do and if it’s a group then it gets even stupider. That’s why Kinect reviews cannot be trusted.

  23. FahKinSuPah:

    Quoting myself here…

    “You know somewhere some fat starwars nerd is in his undies playing the Star Wars Kinect game pretending he is a real jedi.

    What’s that saying?

    ^Lmao

  25. Philistine:

    I’d half way agree with CAD on this.

    half the reviewers go into a kinect game wanting to hate it, or insisting that it won’t recognise there actions, instead of simply adapting or exaggeration your actions slightly so that it does recognise them.

    Kinect is far from perfect, but it’s good enough to make some of the games a hoot. I’ve seen my kids literally collapsing with laughter playing them on many occasions.

    The problem is that many of the games just don’t work that well (Joyride), while others work really well child of Eden, Dance, Sports, Exercises games. this is no different to non kinect games, some just don’t play well. it doesn’t mean the controller is flawed. programmers just need to make sure that what they are trying to do is within the limitations of the kinect system

    This guy takes a bit of a slagging from the xbots in his opinion of the system, but I would say he pretty much nails it. and since the review was written, kinect has indeed got better.

    http://venturebeat.com/2010/11/09/review-microsoft-kinect-motion-sensing-game-system-isnt-as-good-as-we-hoped-it-would-be/

    Kinect is a work in progress, and I think, with some effort the games will get better. I’m not sure that the existing hardware is up to it though, I think for the next big step up, the hardware will need to be improved, software can only take things so far.
    You can’t make a silk purse from a sows ear as they say.

    I would also say that for games aimed squarely at kids & casuals, reviews should include some opinions from kids & casuals, because It’s clear that hardcore gamers,(even the so called professional reviewers)are almost never going to like kinect games, no matter how good they get. We don’t really want to stand up flapping around like a loony, that for the kids.

  26. oldschool1987:

    “half the reviewers go into a kinect game wanting to hate it, or insisting that it won’t recognise there actions, instead of simply adapting or exaggeration your actions slightly so that it does recognise them.”

    Link or just opinion?

  27. Kushy:

    Ahhhh man, I was going to buy Kinect just for this!!!
    Looked EPIC, as in Epic piece of CRAP! Hahahaha, this does not surprise me! Looks like Cliffy B and crew needed to save face! :)

  28. phranctoast:

    “half the reviewers go into a kinect game wanting to hate it, or insisting that it won’t recognise there actions, instead of simply adapting or exaggeration your actions slightly so that it does recognise them.”

    I disagree. I think many give kinect games a good shot. That’s why some games have higher than 55 on MC.

    The problem that exists is many of these games just suck. Once the motion gimmick has run it’s course you’re stuck with a shit game. Reviewers seem to take this into account more than a 5 year old or mom who’s still wowed by the concept Aka gimmick.

  29. FahKinSuPah:

    “The problem that exists is many of these games just suck. Once the motion gimmick has run it’s course you’re stuck with a shit game. Reviewers seem to take this into account more than a 5 year old or mom who’s still wowed by the concept Aka gimmick.”

    I think motion controls are pretty cool, and can be much more than a “gimmick” but the problem is that so few devs work it right. I’ve long stood by my statement that if done right motion controls can be amazing. Yes, this could apply to kinect too but well we all kinda knew where it would go the moment it was announced MS took out the CPU from the kinect unit itself.

  30. Roca.:

    “Kinect is a work in progress, and I think, with some effort the games will get better”

    it’s been 3 years already…3rd wave of Kinect games are already being released and Kinect is not getting any better – it will always be a cool gimmick for dancing and exercising games, but it will always suck for any other type of games and Star Wars, Harry Potter, JoyRide and Rise of Nightmares prove this.

  31. phranctoast:

    I think Kinects control scheme is simply too limited to do more than whats being done now.

    I think Kinects controls could be best compared to iOS games in this respect.

  32. ncaissie:

    “If there is one thing I’ve learned about Kinect reviews is that they are not to be truted.”

    Every kinect game I have played has been shit except Disney.
    Also the pet game is cool for kids, but the controls aren’t that good.
    Even Disney has control problems. But the other three game we have are shit. You wave a hand, kick or jump. That sucks ass and they are very unresponsive.
    And controlling your Xbox with kinect is pure BS. It would take forever to do anything and even though they say you can do it sitting down you can’t unless your sitting at a specific distance and you are almost directly in front of the tv.

    CAD and Godless are full of shit.

  33. ncaissie:

    “I think motion controls are pretty cool, and can be much more than a “gimmick” ”
    Are you a 5 year old or a mom?

  34. Roca.:

    Capcom doesn’t learn from its mistakes. I just read that Lost Planet 3 is being developed by the creators of Turning Point & Legenday (two horrible games).

    why is Capcom giving its games to other developers?
    Look at what happend to Bionic Commando and RE:ORC!!

    Now they have DmC & Lost Planet being done by 3rd party developers…and I hear RE6 changes developers daily ;)

  35. FahKinSuPah:

    @ncaissie

    “Are you a 5 year old or a mom?”

    No, I’m a hardcore gamer. Which seems like more than I can say about you sometimes.

    If devs learned to take better advantage of motion controls we would end up getting some amazing games.

    I really enjoyed playing Metroid Prime 3 on the Wii. That is one example of motion control done right.

  36. Roca.:

    You would’ve enjoyed it a lot more with a Dualshock 3 ;)

  37. FahKinSuPah:

    @Roca

    You kinda failed there ;)

    MP3 played pretty damn well.The motion controls added a lot to the gameplay. I want to get the MP Trilogy collection on Wii and replay through the trilogy with motion controls but the collection is pretty pricey.

  38. Roca.:

    ‘MP3 played pretty damn well.The motion controls added a lot to the gameplay”

    It would’ve played better with a real controller. You can open doors with the DS3 six axis functionality – not a big deal.

  39. ncaissie:

    “why is Capcom giving its games to other developers?”
    Trying to trick people like me into buying them. Fuck Capcom the pos mother fuckers.

  40. ncaissie:

    “If devs learned to take better advantage of motion controls we would end up getting some amazing games.”
    Bull shit. Motion controls suck ass. Specially on the vita. I hate taking my hands off the buttons just to do retarded swipes on the screen. How is that good? And the wii is a pos just like move and kinect. They are not accurate and are only good for mini games like Ramon.

    As for me not being a gamer, why because I have three kids a dog, a snake and a house to take care of. And a full time job and chronic pain from a fucked up lung surgery? When I can play games I do. Not always online and mostly mobile on the old PSP and now the vita. Gamer score means nothing to someone who has to get their game time in between taking the kids to things like swimming lessons or gymnastics.

    Maybe when you have kids you will see what I mean.

  41. Roca.:

    “They are not accurate and are only good for mini games like Ramon”

    hmmm..

    “it will always be a cool gimmick for dancing and exercising games, but it will always suck for any other type of games and Star Wars, Harry Potter, JoyRide and Rise of Nightmares prove this.”

    Having played Dance Central, I can say it is much more than just a gimmick. It works, works well, is fun, challenging, and a good workout. I haven’t tried them yet, but the same can probably be said of DC2 and Your Shape Fitness. I also still have to try Child of Eden and Gunstringer.

    The problem is Kinect isn’t accurate enough to (or hasn’t been made to) read digits. Once it is we may see a proliferation of good games in other genres. For right now it’s strengths are dance, exercise, rails, and certain kid’s titles. It’s not a bad start, and certainly a better showing than what Eyetoy or even Move has made in the past as far as titles dedicated to the tech.

    Sorcery may change this, but until it does, Kinect has done it’s job in winning over the largest market, casual gamers, and even has some core gamers like me switching back and forth between PS3 and 360 on a regular basis just for titles like Dance Central, as much as I REALLY hate to admit it.

  43. Roca.:

    “even has some core gamers like me switching back and forth between PS3 and 360 on a regular basis just for titles like Dance Central, as much as I REALLY hate to admit it”

    I thought you gave your 360 to the guy painting your house…must’ve confused you with someone else ;)

    Have fun with Dance Central…that’s what I do most weekend in a real dancing environment with real women 8)

  44. oldschool1987:

    “Have fun with Dance Central…that’s what I do most weekend in a real dancing environment with real women”

    Not this call sign, I can’t dance for shit lmao

  45. Roca.:

    LOL @ oldschool
    where have you been lately?

    @Carl
    Try Dance Dance Revolution if you really want challenge and a good workout.

  46. oldschool1987:

    Moving house pal, been a busy couple of weeks plus it seems pretty dead on here. I’m waiting on the redesign of the page, should be good. Hopefully they take Dans idea into consideration, the thumbs up or down thing.

  47. oldschool1987:

    Also having played Silent Hill Downpour for myself I can safetly say that IGNs criminally low score was completely unjustified. This game is brilliant, it feels like the old ones which is exactly what I wanted, Puzzles and exploration. All these mediocre scores wanted set pieces or first person action.

    It’s missing the monster designs of the original and the original composer but the new music by the Dexter composer is more than good enough.

  48. ncaissie:

    @OS
    That can’t be, if the reviewers say its shit then it must be shit. After all they did score a couple of games right so they must all be right. Right CarlB?

  49. CarlB:

    “I thought you gave your 360 to the guy painting your house”

    I did. That was the old white fat one. I recently bought the new one to try out Kinect (and in case you’re wondering, no, I didn’t buy Gold).

    “that’s what I do most weekend in a real dancing environment with real women”

    It’s nice to know you are a dancing machine, but I’m like OS and probably most military guys who spent more time in the field than in the club: not a very good dancer. When we spent time on liberty, we prioritized our time to be in the sack with women instead of on the dance floor ogling them.

    As for your own recommendation of playing the latest DDR (because you spend so much time in “a real dancing environment), it hasn’t gotten near as good of reviews and DC already provides more than enough of a fun challenge and workout for me personally.

    “Right CarlB?

    If a reviewer says it’s “shit” for him, then it probably is, just the same as if he said it’s “brilliant” for him. Again, it doesn’t mean you will agree with it, and it is one individuals opinion; no no review can be completely objective, unless perhaps it is by a robot running on AI.

    Look at the breakdown of the scores on MC, not just one site’s reviews alone, as that site can have several different individual reviewers opinions. Even with MC it just increases the probability that you may not like the game, it doesn’t guarantee you will not.

    In this case the game currently has an aggregate of 64 based on 34 critics, which is considered “mixed reviews”, not “unfavorable”. This alone suggests that some reviewers liked it, others didn’t. Delve deeper and you find that 7 reviewers gave it positive review scores, 25 mixed, and two gave it negative review scores. So comparatively speaking, there is a better chance one would like this game with 7 positive and 25 mixed reviews as opposed to one like AMY with more negative reviews than positive and mixed reviews combined.

    This still doesn’t suggest any one reviewer is necessarily “wrong” or “right” in his or her opinion, because every reviewer, and every gamer, has a right to their own individual views.

    Twilight thought Ninja Gaiden deserved a better score, OS probably thinks the same of Silent Hill Downpour. Just because there is an aggregate score or individual score doesn’t mean everyone will agree with it, because each individual has up to hundreds of millions of factors which make them different by experience, environment, etc.

    The person who has played hundreds of action adventure titles may not necessarily have the same view as a person who has played only 30-50.

  50. CarlB:

    “…to try out Kinect…”
    the original plan was to utilize Kinect for DC and fitness, try Child of Eden and Gunstringer, and the PS3 the rest of the time, but now I’m also looking at Witcher 2 and Halo 4… possibly Bastion and Torchlight, and also revisiting the games like Geometry Wars and Shadow Complex I’d already purchased on XBLA over the years.

  51. Philistine:

    Carl

    If you fancy a work out and a fun game of reflexes, and one of the best games to show how fast kinect can work try Fruit ninja.

    It’s perfect for kinect, and with some adaptation, could be used in a fighting game, kind of like Nightmares, but just better than it managed to do it.

    “CAD and Godless are full of shit.”

    Is there even enough space in a trailer for Kinect to work properly?. How does it cope with “Hill billy / Red neck” voice recognition?

    Sounds like you have your kinect unit set up for shit cassie

  52. oldschool1987:

    Bit of a bitchy response Godless lol.

    And that comment shows how limited Kinect is. Why should hillbillies be able to play Kinect? It should be able to understand any accent at all, I mean it’s meant to be TEH MOST AMAZEBALLZZZ TECHZZ EVAAA right?

    idk why he still acting as if ncaissie lives in a trailer. We all know he makes a lot of money (he’s not shy about it) and most likely has a huge house since he has like 5 PS3s scattered around the house…not to mention that he game on a 100″ display (projector).

    As for Kinect (and the Move/Wii), you guys can have it. I’m good playing awesome games on PS3 & Vita.

  58. Roca.:

    “Roca, you just got burned!”

    how so? I was comparing a dancing game vs dancing socially, with real people…and how does this relate to sex again?

    How awesome is to brag about your sex life on a internet blog? yeah I totally got burned! \sarcasm

    “It’s called a . . . joke?”

    a joke is not funny if you keep repeating every single day…and it’s even less funny when you’re accusing one of the wealthiest member of this site of living in a trailer. Specially after having said the numbers of system he owns, that he plays gaming on 100″ display and the fact that he buys his kids iPads as often as he buys them candy …It would’ve been funnier if the joke was about Ivan ;)

  59. dans303:

    “how so? I was comparing a dancing game vs dancing socially, with real people…and how does this relate to sex again? ”

    It was hardly a comparison. You said – “Have fun with Dance Central…that’s what I do most weekend in a real dancing environment with real women 8) ” which is a playful jest. He responded with an a better playful jest. If you don’t have a good rebuttle, that’s fine. ;)

    “Specially after having said the numbers of system he owns, that he plays gaming on 100? display and the fact that he buys his kids iPads as often as he buys them candy ”

    A quote from you works well:
    How awesome is (it) to brag about your LIFE on a(n) internet blog?

    “It would’ve been funnier if the joke was about Ivan”

    Very true. Hey, we all have running jokes with each other that blatantly aren’t true (except maybe Ivan ;) ), why feel the need to call them out? We’re just having some fun. :)

  60. Roca.:

    “we all have running jokes with each other that blatantly aren’t true”

    doesn’t mean you to repeat it every day…specially since it wasn’t funny the first time. How funny will it be to claim Carl is a terrorist when we all know he spent 20+ years in the US Marines (achieving one of highest ranks for a NCO)…just as funny as claiming ncaissie lives in a trailer… :|

  61. dans303:

    “doesn’t mean you to repeat it every day”

    We really don’t. I wouldn’t even say the joke averages once a week. Plus, I doubt I’m the only other one on here that finds it funny.

    The rest of the paragraph has no relevence whatsoever…

    Not sure you guys have the same dry Ironic sense of humour we have over here.

    Like calling your thickest mate Einstein or speedy, your fattest mate Twiggy, shortest one lofty the one who’s still a virgin at 40 Stud etc.

    Cassie reacted to a comment yonks ago, by telling us all how much money he earned, and how big the house he lives in was. He constantly tells us about the copious quantities of hardware he buys., So now in full accordance with the laws of British humour, he will get the trailer park jibs thrown at him for evermore. .That’s the way it works.

    although in a somewhat double ironic twist, it’s often the poorest that buy all the unessential crap anyway, so maybe he his trailer trash :D

This year we are getting rid of it and driving down to hershey pensilvania and staying in a hotel. Next year I’ll get a new trailer and boat.

    About as awesome as it is to brag about how much you own, or how you dance in “a real environment” instead of games.

    “it’s often the poorest that buy all the unessential crap anyway”

    I’m not so sure. Some certainly do buy unessential stuff (I would say to make their lives less miserable), and an instant gratification mindset instead of long term can contribute to their status, but have you ever seen Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous, Cribs, or The One Percent?

    I’ve recently been doing some reading on this, “Abundance” again, excellent book btw… the poor on average have a higher quality of life now than ever before and technology is becoming cheaper and more ubiquitous. As for buddhists/poor having satellites, there are several possible explanations: government subsidies, corporate projects, or even charitable donors to the buddhist/poor cause.

    Studies have taken place where theft proof computers connected to broadband are placed in slums, and the children there flock to it, learning concepts it takes much longer to teach in schools (and yes, they probably locked out the porn, gambling, etc.). The studies also have shown the more educated the poor are, the more the birth rate decreases, which in turn creates a higher quality of life for individuals in the area. Also, the more connected the individuals are to communicate (via cell or computer), the more likely they are to not only get a job, but to get higher income jobs over time.

    It only recognizes your feet, not your whole body.

    From some reviewers and prior DDR fans:

    -Dance Central: DDR Got Served?

    -You can even learn a lot of dance moves you wouldn’t mind busting out in an actual dance club. I’ve never played anything quite like it, and I think I’m ready to retire my DDR dance pads permanently, because this is the real revolution.

    -anything above Easy will certainly work up a sweat after a short while. This is good news to people who are interested in getting Kinect for its exercise potential. Dance Central is a fun game, but it’s also a really great excuse to get up off the couch and shed some pounds.

    -The video game dancing genre is not new to me, having played games like Dance Dance Revolution and Just Dance. But when I picked up Dance Central for the Xbox 360, I was certainly not prepared for the ridiculous number of hours that I put into playing this game, simply because it was just that much fun to play. Of course, the unique selling point of Dance Central is that because it uses Kinect, any peripherals or dance mats that would be required on other games or consoles instantly go flying out the window…

    -It’s worth mentioning that a lot of the game’s choreography is good enough to pull off if you were to hear the song in a club, provided of course you can remember all the moves…

    -Dance Central is the first true dance game that I’ve seen that not only gives you a great workout, but also actually encourages people to get up and join in with you… Dance Central is the game to have for anyone who is skeptical of Kinect’s abilities.

    I was very skeptical of Kinect and thought it wasn’t worth the time or money… one of the reasons why I waited so long, but DC is just one of those games (I would say especially if you liked DDR in the past) that is worth the time and money if you like to dance and or would like to learn more about dancing.

    I wanted to hate it, trash talk it, etc., but instead was too busy having fun. As I said before, I still play PS3 and Vita (right now I’m playing R&CFACiT and loving it), but DC is perfect for some short bouts of exercise and learning some new dance moves/routines… and I never really liked dancing that much before.

    We got ourselves a bunch of psychiatrists here. Lol
    Morons.

    So consols are crap? You people are pathetic and in godless typical fashion has to change the subject because he loses the debate. I buy stuff I enjoy because I can afford to. I have a full life with three awesome kids. If anything you people without girls and kids are the ones trying to fill a void. Lmao.

    Pathetic.

  74. CarlB:

    I’ve been married and I’ve parented kids, so more power to you if you can make it work over a lifetime. Right now I’m perfectly happy with the stuff and people in my life I have, and in fact could be perfectly happy with a lot less. Enjoying life is a state of mind as long as the necessities are taken care of, and if you can find that joy with someone else over the long run (the rest of your life) then so be it, just realize some don’t have to rely on other people or “stuff” for their happiness or fulfillment.

  75. ncaissie:

    “’ve been married and I’ve parented kids”
    It’s not the same. I have an ex wife with three kids also.

    ” I have, and in fact could be perfectly happy with a lot less. ”
    Good for you. I for one want to be a lot richer than I am. I’m not rich just living comfortable. And now that they are cutting 19,000 gov jobs in Ottawa I am even more happy that I have my job still.
    If I didn’t care about acquiring things I would just move to Florida or Texes and live in a trailer. You can buy a double wise for like $6,000. Lol

  76. CarlB:

    Congratulations on your ex wife and three kids.
    Personally I’m happy without having to be married or be a breeder.

    I don’t need to be richer than I am, it just happens fairly easily for me, it’s not that hard to make more than enough money to be rich if you live in a developed country, have half a brain, and some discretion. 3,981 people become millionaires every day, so I don’t think too much of me being one.

    If I didn’t make more money, or made less, I’d be fine anyway. As it is, I own three houses, live in one, collect rent on two, and my pension. As I’ve become older, I’ve just gotten over the “more stuff” rat race. If you take pleasure in “acquiring things” that’s fine, I’m just over most of that by now and prefer to live simply.

    I’m not sure what kind of “double-wide” you are looking at, but most of the decent ones go for $35,000 to $60,000, not “$6000″, and that’s without utility connections, foundation, or land, depending on the area. Things may be a lot cheaper in Canada though, I don’t know though because I’ve never looked at that market to develop. I’ll stick with my $250,000 house in Oceanside and my other two 3 bed/2 1/2 br houses in SoCal for now.

    Her three kids aren’t mine. That’s why it never worked out. I have three kids of my own now with my new gf.
    I have been poor and grew up with very little money. That’s why I won’t let my kids grow up like that. I worked hard to get where I am today and it sure as hell ain’t in a trailer.

  78. CarlB:

    Better luck next time as they say.
    Yes, I have been poor and grew up with very little money also. Some might consider 20 in the Marines “hard”, and I don’t live in a trailer either, so welcome to the club.

  79. CarlB:

    “…I have been poor and grew up with very little money…”

    …although I realize now from my travels to developing countries that I was quite “rich” in comparison…

    “…although I realize now from my travels to developing countries that I was quite “rich” in comparison…”
    Most of us probably are.

  81. CarlB:

    Anyway, it put things in perspective when I was 19 in Bangladesh seeing families on top of trash heaps scrounging for what little they could find.

  82. ncaissie:

    That would be hard to see. Except most 19 year olds aren’t mature enough to care.

  83. CarlB:

    Hopefully you can raise your kids to where they will be mature enough.
