info on one of the three ideologies (force, wealth influence)

“Force” your way to the top

The Force component of ideology represents using mostly physical means of rising to power. Rather than wasting time with calm and collected diplomatic exchange and peaceful protests, those with a Force-heavy ideology get their goals completed through the use of “persuasive” actions ranging from ingratiating themselves to important officials to vandalizing rival factions and sending death squads against potential opponents.

Force-oriented characters that you encounter in the game occupy positions of
physical power, both legal and illegal. Force character classes include:

• Criminals
• Union Officials
• Military Officers
• Police Officers

As a general rule, Force actions are the fastest-working actions—straightforward methods such as torture and assault produce immediate results. In the long run, however, a pure-Force approach scares those around you and makes achieving certain mission goals more difficult because of this as the game progresses. Force-affiliated characters and factions are ideal for attacking and undermining enemy characters and factions.

You know what I found the other day? Edge, November 1999. Big feature on R:tR, already 12 months into development. Apparently minimum specs are PII 266, 64 MB RAM, and ‘a 3D card’.

To go from the sublime to the ridiculous, I got an e-mail from Novistrana.com this morning (and I am sure that is Elixir by any other name) that :

After some investigation we can now reveal that: Republic: The Revolution will be on the shelves of your favorit retailer on the 29 of August for UK, but other regions should check with their local stores. Let the Revolution Begin....

Eidos would have control over distribution, so I'd be inclined to call that a lie :)
