off topic but just came across a fox news bit that is pretty amazing:
this game will surely create a bunch of mass murderers in the USA...

FOX continues it's tradition of employing the three dumbest people currently staring into a TV camera on FOX and Friends. Hasselbeck is an even bigger dipshit than Gretchen Carlson, and that's saying a lot. Steve Doocy and the brown-haired guy who isn't Steve Doocy are still there because it's difficult finding replacements who are even dumber than they are who can still read a teleprompter.

Power supply? Random crashes, reboots, slowdowns, etc can all be caused by a failing power supply. PS testers are a cheap and quick way to at least eliminate it as a possibility. Stops codes can possibly lead you to the faulty hardware, but that hardware may be wonking because of the PS. And +1 for Memtest. Great little utility.

I was recently having intermittent slowdowns and lock-ups (not bluescreens), and was having a hell of a time figuring out what piece of hardware was going tits up. Uninstalling Bitdefender, of all things, fixed the problem (which sucks, cuz I really like Bitdefender). Occasional crashes can be a bitch to troubleshoot. You can always just throw parts at it, I guess.

Thanks, Capella and Creston Mashiki*, for the links. I dig useful little utilities like these.

BREAKING! Game site groupie do-nothings take sarcastic pot-shots at popular target. News at 10.
BREAKING! Humorless eleven-year member labels newer members and members with fewer posts as "groupies" in hilarious, ironic attempt at condescension.

A lot of the anti-Affleck tweets make fun of his Boston accent. This makes no sense to me, as Bale was British, but was fine as an American in the role. Affleck has done lots of non-Bostonian parts, so this isn't really an issue.
Here's one...
"Affleck gonna be like "It's the Jokah! Or the Riddlah! Rahbin! Call Commissionah Gahden!"
LOL

"the venn diagram of "good movies ben affleck has been in" and "movies ben affleck also directed" is a single circle."
My sentiments, exactly. I used to hate Ben Affleck movies until I saw "Gone Baby Gone". He's directed some damn good movies. Still, he shouldn't play Batman any more than he should play MLK, or Caesar, or Don Quixote, or Daredevil.

Do you have skills producing high-quality work under tight time schedules, as well as experience working with a team to flesh out a coherent, well-structured story? Well, you won't need those here.

Indies are starting to become sell outs too!

Are indies supposed to stay small and "indie" for you? If they are "discovered" and become more successful, they are a sellout?

As a PC gamer, I'm still pissed about the whole Bungie/Microsoft thing, but that's because Halo was ruined as a PC game by the move. Indies signing exclusivity deals only irks me if it ruins or eliminates a promising PC version of a game, and even then... not really. It's not like they are taking food off my table. Lots of indies out there with cool games who don't want a lot of my money to play them.

I still like Green Day, too.

Not really the same thing, if something is only on the PC you can bet it's probably not because someone PAID the developer to ignore other platforms. I do agree however that the exclusives game is one game I have no interest in playing.

I don't give a shit WHY a game is only developed for the PC. Call it PC exclusive, or a limited release due to limited resources/budget/etc... whatever. Semantics.

What I care about is a game that is developed for the PC and NOT consoles. A game that isn't compromised in gameplay, interface, or controls because of console and gamepad considerations. If someone wants to miss out on a possibly great PC game because a DIFFERENT game they're also developing is a console exclusive... their loss. A simple "forest for the trees" hissy fit, imo. I'll support the developer and the platform by giving them my money for good PC games, and not giving them my money for crappy console ports.

PS - I can't think of a single console-exclusive release that was worth a plate of cold piss once it was eventually released on the PC.

I refuse the support the "exclusive" model bullshit. Too bad, I was looking forward to playing A Machine for Pigs. No way I'm giving my money to that dev.

Huh? Isn't "A Machine For Pigs" a PC exclusive? Oh, that's right... you don't want to support "the exclusive model bullshit". Very honorable of you to support that sentiment even when it's for your chosen platform.

The funny thing is that XCOM is ubiquitous with the idea of chest-high walls for cover and other examples of what you mentioned, the only difference is that it's now a third-person viewpoint.

Hehe. True. (but it's far from "the only difference")
