    How exaggerated is this view of street musicians?

    May I remind you, as C&C has shown us, that going back in time to kill Hitler isn't always the optimal outcome?

    It'll just get reverted to the last edit anyway.

    Hey guys. Been playing infamous for about 2 hours now. It's pretty great.

    This PA comic has enhanced my enjoyment of the game, because now I am hunting down street musicians mercilessly.

    Did you know that there's an achievement for killing 10 of them?!

    Anyone know what the link to the coat Kiko made was supposed to go to in the newspost? Seems like Tycho accidentally linked to gametrailers twice.

    In the sense that they deserve the abhorrence of all right-thinking human beings, not at all.

    OK so I wasn't the only one confused by this.

    Street musicians are hit and miss. Several years ago at the Hard Rock in San Francisco there was a dude wailing out some awesome Hendrix style music. It was the first time in person I'd seen an instrument case out open with change and dollars haphazardly thrown in. And you know what? That dude was earnin' it.

    Incoming "Dickwolves"(tm)-esque tantrum from Jewish community. Actually, no, not really.

    What's the difference between a (street) musician and a large pizza?

    The pizza can feed a family of 4.

    I honestly just can't get past that beanie. I really believe that hat will probably keep me from playing the game. Shallow? Maybe. Honest? Definitely.

    The developers clearly condone murdering them.

    I guess I don't really understand why people wouldn't like street musicians?

    I think it's some perception that street musicians are somehow not real musicians. Jewel started as a street musician that lived in her car, then worked her way up. I've got tons of respect for it.

    I guess the only way to be actually critical of street musicians is if they have no ambition to at least line up gigs to play at clubs. That assumes they aren't trying though.

    Some can be really annoying. There's some teenager/college student in one area downtown who I loathe because he only plays a bunch of songs like Good Riddance over and fucking over in literally the best spot to sit and enjoy the outside.

    God help him when I get my fire powers.

    I'd say it's safe to assume Treme wasn't Tycho's favorite show.

    Unless it's Miracles of Modern Science performing in the street, in which case you'll probably toss a twenty their way.

    Nah, actually street musicians are pretty cool. Maybe I haven't spent enough time in cities that have them all over the place, but the vast majority I've run into were good.

    As someone who has street musicians outside his office building on a daily basis for a majority of the year, I would say that setting one on fire all at once like that shows incredible compassion

    Did anyone else get the "I hate them so much because my social upbringing wont let me be one" vibe? Ala homophobia?
    I picture a young Tycho charmed by the performers, then chastised by his mom and told a story about how they are evil people who microwave kittens for their crazy mystical science experiments. Or puppies. Puppies would be pretty Hitler-esque too.

    Wow.

    No, I'm going to guess nobody else did.

    Tycho, it is worth mentioning, is a musician himself. I rather doubt he has suppressed latent busking lust, though.

    Busk-lust.

    Man, killing street musicians is nothing. The sign twirlers are where it's at.

    Sign twirlers evoke pity rather than rage.

    It'd be nice to see sign twirlers. Instead, the local mattress sellers just have 15 or so people stand out at various intersections with liquidation sale signs, looking like they hate life. Even worse when kids are involved.

    A Little Caesar's where I used to live would literally prop a sign against a man in a wheelchair and make him stay there all day.
