So for someone who doesn't usually follow AMD stuff ever and without googling, what the hell is this mantle anyways? Someone give me a quick breakdown.

It's AMD's new proprietary graphics acceleration technology. In key locations around the globe, they're able to pump liquid nitrogen past the earth's crust deep into the mantle where they harvest neutrinos given off by the massive temperature differential. They then use these neutrinos to power vast racks of servers in the cloud that AMD procs tap into to accelerate games and other graphics. Although they were claiming increases of 30-40% (which happened in special cases), in most cases improvement was only around 10%, so like NewMaxx said, more evolutionary than revolutionary.

Amazed

I rarely use Chrome, but can't you increase the font and everything through a simple keystroke like ctrl+ ? I know you can with firefox.

control and mouse wheel up or down.

I've never seen the option for a multi-team version of the game, or played in one. Not to mention the hacks are rather obvious and obnoxious.

That DLC didn't take long to come out

I think it's the one that came with one of the special editions, so it was available on release; this is just so people who didn't get that version can buy it separately.

Nope didn't come with the Digital Deluxe edition.

Horizon wasn't bad, but it was more Forza Need for Speed, vs Forza in an open world (which would be awesome).

1) It's his game he can do whatever the fuck they want in it.
2) The game has a dark side. Seen several npc's who frequently internet search the word 'rape' Not to mention the human trafficking part of the game.
3) Seen lots of funny shit like 'Steve White' who was a gay black guy (there is a joke in Steel Magnolia's 'All gay men have track lightin'. And all gay men are named Mark, Rick, or Steve') So I was laughing pretty hard about it.

It looks awesome to me, but I never played Dead Island, so maybe that has something to do with it.

I'm definitely freaking excited for it. Can't wait to play it.

There is no way in hell I'm paying more then 15 bucks for this game after Dead Island and Riptide.

BAD BATZ!

I too have been doing all the side stuff, and thankfully it's not as bad as previous Ubisoft games (especially the AC series).

But I've seen a few bugs and AI glitches.
Had a problem where camera's on building I was just using disappear, had the game cheat outright in chess (full chess not the puzzle version).

And now I'm starting all the story missions.

Apologies for yielding to what might seem to some as sensationalist press but this one shocked me. Two 12 yrs. stab a friend over 19 times. Police claim they planned it for months and had a sleep over with the victim the night before the attack.

Crazy and sad.

Holy fucking shit!!!

WTF is this world coming to?

All I know is if I could have a Jay Leno type garage, this batmobile (along with Burton's Batmobile, and the Tumbler) would be in it.

"Sleep-away camp"? That's a strange expression, Bruce. I mean doesn't going to "camp" imply you're going to be sleeping away from home to begin with? I'm familiar with day-camp which distinguishes itself by letting you know there will be no sleeping away from home. But if someone tells you they're going camping or 'to camp', don't you already infer they'll be sleeping away?

I have to agree with Cutter, as until Blue put it in the OotB I had never heard of 'sleep-away' camp in my life, with years of camping and going to summer camps in my youth.
Then again I never heard of warsh or corn-hole until moving to the midwest.

10 Classic Sci-Fi Movies With Better Effects Than Modern Films.

I was glad to see The Abyss on that list, a movie that gets way to little credit. I just rewatched, and while the groundbreaking CG gets all the attention in that movie, what blew me away was all the underwater work done in that film. It all looks great, and it's all seamless. It totally holds up and is a showcase for what you can accomplish with practical effects. It's a sci-fi action masterpiece, IMO.

EDIT: I'd also like to give a shout out to Jurassic Park. Back in those days, trailers didn't have all the money shots in them, so when I went to theaters and saw the film, my jaw literally dropped on that first dino shot. I knew a lot about effects, especially how creature effects were done with stop motion. My brain struggled with how they did it, because it didn't seem possible to create such imagery. I immediately went out and got another ticket so I could watch it again.

Really surprised Star Trek 2 or Star Trek 4 (the robot whales) not on that list.

And was very sad to hear about Alice, as she was the glue that held the Brady's together.

it's theoretically possible to come back from deep hypothermia, but the way they froze his body, in a standard freezer, almost certainly the ice crystals formed would've destroyed all the healthy cells in his body. the way to freeze someone is to flash freeze them so that the ice freezes in place, smooth and unexpanded.

Fast Facts - first item was "this was originally a driving game" which is what I said it felt like.....heh.

That's what sorta blows my mind. It started off as a Driver game, but yet the vehicle handling (which is pretty decent once ya turn off the accelerations in the settings file) isn't as good as the last Driver game, nor is the city big enough either. I just don't understand why they didn't spend more time getting the 'weight' of the cars nailed down more.

7. Re: keep those bananas safe! May 31, 2014, 13:50 The Half Elf
 
Had a problem like this with my neighbor 2 houses down. Granted it's on street parking, but I have 1 car and have to admit it's nice to park in front of my house. This lady has her car, her 3 kids cars, and up to 2 of the kids bf/gf's cars that take up the entire street. Now across from my house is a church with enough parking for those extra cars, or at the end of the street. But it was getting out of hand and everyone on the block was yelling and screaming at this women (who's just a grade A bitch, not to mention that one of her kids lives in a converted garage behind her house, and likes to urinate out of this garage door which I can see directly from one of my 3 bedroom windows on my second story bedroom).
So I ask my one neighbor to stick around while I tried to talk to this lady (been trying to catch her coming home from work and chat with her). I go up to her and politly say 'Hi how are you? My name is XXX and I live 2 doors up and I was wondering if I could talk to you about the parking situation?' 'YOU WERE PARKED IN FRONT ON MY HOUSE FOR 4 DAYS!' 'Yeah I was because your entire family and their significant others are taking up every other parking space and that was the only place to park'. 'WELL... YOU'RE GAY!' and I replyed 'Not as much as your boys!' (which both are but 1 is closeted) 'BTW would you please have your son quit urinating and exposing himself?' 'HOW THE FUCK YOU KNOW WHAT'S HE'S DOING OUT THERE? I HAVE A PRIVACY FENCE?!?' 'Well, my house is TWO stories tall, and I have these magic things that let me see through walls called windows, and occasionally I have my nephews over (and when they do they sleep in my room and I sleep downstairs cause the cats will then sleep with them) and I don't want them exposed to that, or going home and telling their parents about it and having them call the police, not to mention your daughter who is driving with a suspended license taking up 2 parking spots and parking with 1 wheel halfway across the sideway!'

Just stupid angry crap that I have no time or use for but so far her family hasn't parked in front of my house.
