Just for future reference, you don't need to make a Microsoft account to use Windows 8 or Windows 10. Just click the other option then you'll be presented with the ability to make a local user account as usual.

It was an OEM Win8 install. I could not get out of the screen without entering a current MSN account.....so I formatted and installed Win7 Pro.

SWAT teams are necessary. They are absolutely over-used these days but they are still needed for situations too dangerous for a normally equipped and trained officer.

The SWAT teams are called in expecting a dangerous situation. Normal people panic when the SWAT bust in. Panicked people make bad decisions, officers expecting violence will be in reaction mode. The potential for injury or death is too high. That they both know the danger and intentionally make the deception anyways makes it willful endangerment of life and it requires more than 30 days.

That might be true, if only it weren't. In actuality, SWAT teams are frequently used in *all* situations. There was a good propublica.org article recently describing this situation.

https://www.propublica.org/article/flashbangs

Using SWAT teams is unwarranted and extremely dangerous to the general public.

You are a joke....sir.

Nope, I just wanted it in my Steam profile, oh well. I will get my $60.00 worth! hahahaha

Can't wait - our crew is nice and plump with 82 members! We shall see how many people get the PC version.
I'm not sure how well my 5_something GTX (maybe 560? can't remember) will run it, but I'm tempted.

DO IT!

Check out these jobs this guy made, only for 360 though, but R* was playing them on their twitch today. Was hilarious!

I am firing them up tonight. They look hard as all get out!

You are all a bunch of socialist control freaks. The nazi swat teams shouldn't exist in the first place. 30 day sentence is plenty for someone to think about what they've done, especially after the whole trial fiasco. Maybe a repeat offender increase the sentence to six months in the worst case. Yes if someone is shot or killed then that might be grounds for holding the caller partially responsible but the swat teams take a lot of that responsibility for their own behavior too.

edit: this is a case where the feds make especially cruel and unusual punishments for people interfering with them. All that does is escalate things further over time (blowback).

We're not pro-SWAT, we're anti-SWATting. The militarization of police forces is a different issue entirely. I agree that they shouldn't exist, and a whole raft of "crimes" should be misdemeanors, not felonies as they currently are. This whole "war" on drugs bullshit has to stop, as do no-knock raids and server warrants with SWAT teams, and surplus military equipment needs to stop going to police departments.

I agree with everything you said, as long as the bad guys don't have rifles. But, they do. So we are going to use everything we can get our hands on. Cause family.

The militarization of the police has been insane. Damn near every town now has a SWAT team armed well enough to make 1980s LA SWAT teams jealous, but without the training or the need.

Same as above. Don't disagree with you guys on militarization.

*sigh.

SWAT teams are rarely used.

Puts officers at risk

But more importantly it puts you, your wife your kids and any pets with even a hint of a growl at risk.

Puts officers at risk? Couldn't care less for them since that is what they signed up for. They are civil servants who put their lives at stake to protect the innocent. Cases like this, I worry more for those that officers are sworn to protect since you can't count on cops to protect them.

It's more likely those swatted will have flashbangs used against them and be indiscriminately hurt without recourse than any cop being harmed.

oh man, so much wrong in this post it makes my nose bleed. I don't have enough deodorant on to respond, just easier to put you on the tard filter.....

BOOM

GTA5 at Green Man Gaming is 46 and change with a coupon.....

59.99 at Steam if you want it linked to your Steam account, and you get 1.3M instead of 1M, and you get and extra copy of SA.

(Looks like you get SA and the extra cash anywhere.....)

Looks like Nuuvem has GTA5 for 35, but I have never purchased from there....

If you buy directly from R* you get a free game from a list of games
Max Payne 3 is in that list.....

Thanks for info guys. I just loaded Win7 on it for simplicity for him. he doesn't have an MSN account, and I wasn't going to walk him through all of that. He is good with Win7, we will just leave it at that.

One very cool tool I used, since I had to do a fresh install of Win7 and all drivers for this Toshiba model are Win8, this tool worked like a dream - so much so that I donated to the site.

Driver Identifier.

No more trying 10 different things not knowing what that stupid little yellow question mark is. Thing worked like a dream. Awesome.

/Thread jack -

So I mentioned last week that I saved some data from my old man's laptop. Well, it has hardware failures that probably made it do what it did - so I ordered him a new laptop.

Came with Windows 8.........hmmm...he doesn't even have a MSFT account.....proooooooobbbbably going to format and install Win7....

Thoughts?

I bought 3 copies of the game

That was your choice which you made of your own free will. If you keep buying these copies at full price, why do they have any incentive to offer a discount? Makes no sense at all. Next time vote with your wallet if you want a discount. That's a language publishers listen to.

We all know that it isn't. They don't care. The game will sell millions and they know that. Period, end of story. Anyone in here who says they won't buy it is a liar.

Lastly, what is that weapon thing in pic 022?

Markus is really into movie props, he hired a company to decorate the place and they bought a number of pieces including the Brando bike from Wild One, it's in the pics - the guns a prop from a James Bond movie, don't remember which one.

I won't claim to have recognized it right off, but as the self-designated authority on the Bond books and movies, I felt compelled to research this.

I'm pretty sure that's a Browning M1919 fired from the helicopters attacking the oil rig at the end of Diamonds are Forever.

Considering there is a Bond book next to it - I would imagine you are correct sir!

What did YOU do to help?

You come across like an ass, so here, let me talk your language.

I BOUGHT 3 FUCKING COPIES OF THE GAME YOU [expletive deleted].

Has nothing to do with entitlement, not sure how you get that out of what I said, you are probably bleeding my comments over with someone else's. Next time don't use the quote function.

It isn't a different product. It is a re textured version of the same game.

It isn't unheard of to get a discount because you have a game from a publishers catalog. Happens all the time, not sure why you think it is the same as a car or house? Does the game appreciate to the tune of 350k when I don't want it anymore? Do I have a title to the game that I can sell after I have applied really cool upgrades to it? Your reverse nerd rage is confusing.
