That will all change, as ISPs have to bring those areas up to par... which will take years and cost a fortune, which will be passed along to us. Not to mention that the QoS for the rest of us will suck as ISPs try to save money by overloading their server nodes as they spread their existing bandwidth around.

The obvious solution would be to allow local governments to buy existing "last mile" infrastructure, or construct their own (which is what part of this vote was about), and then lease that infrastructure to willing ISPs.

And who pays for that again??

Like all those rivers that companies used as waste dumps. The government really fucked that up. Clean water! Who ever heard of such nonsense...?

Do you think the government is any better?
Look at the Hanford debacle...
The cleanup will cost another $110 BILLION and won't be finished until 2060!

Squeal like a pig, you shits. Competition. YES. Sew those nipple-flaps in your shirts up, because the gravy train is DERAILED.

Ok, exactly how is that going to work? ISPs will now be treated like utilities... Not a lot of competition there. The idea is that every household has water, gas, and electric, so every household should have access to broadband.

One of the many problems with net neutrality is that ISPs such as Comcast invest tons of money for infrastructure into the regions that will produce that best bang for their buck... So, they might lay fiber optic cable in a middle class neighborhood, school or business district long before less affluent or less populous areas. That will all change, as ISPs have to bring those areas up to par... which will take years and cost a fortune, which will be passed along to us. Not to mention that the QoS for the rest of us will suck as ISPs try to save money by overloading their server nodes as they spread their existing bandwidth around.

Graphics look fine. Obviously graphics whores are not part of the intended target audience.

Yes, it looks pretty good for a Kickstarter game on a $600K budget. However, if this game raises millions, I will expect a corresponding bump in visual fidelity.

The Ultima Underworld games were some of my favorites... so I pledged for a boxed CE.

I agree with the others about the removal of Amazon Payments from Kickstarter. This is certain to hamper fundraising to some degree.

The Halo 5 limited edition bundle is a great deal!
Uhm, wait a minute... Looks like $250 only buys the game... No console included. Shocked
I remember the old days, when $70 would buy a Halo 2 Limited Edition.

Yes, of course it does... just as higher speed limits lead to more car crashes.
So, what's the solution... dial up modems and 10mph speed limits?

I already finished the game twice on hard so I may try Nightmare in a month.

Wow, really? Once through on hard and I said, "Thank God that's over!"
Why would anyone want to torture themselves on Nightmare mode without even so much as an achievement to show for it?
I would sooner offer myself up for CIA interrogation. Whip

Just started the game, and now I'm glad I chose easy.

Save frequently, never run, and prepare to die! Dead

Does this magically invalidate my hard playthrough in progress towards the "complete the game on the hardest difficulty" achievement? Has this already gone live? This is some uselessly nebulous information from the developers.

No, and Yes.

Why in the hell would anyone want to torture themselves by playing on Nightmare mode? I played it on easy on my first run through to get all of the collectables, but Easy mode in this game is NOT easy. I just finished it again on Hard, which should be renamed Unfair Mode. Anyways, I squeezed every last achievement out of it including the One Shot (do not die) achievement.

I do have to agree with the sentiment that calling it Windows 10 is a bit absurd.

Honestly, it would've made more sense to name it Windows One.
Now that I think of it, Windows 8 should've been named One Window.

I've played all of the AssCreed games to 100% sync, so naturally I had this one preordered.
Lucky for me I was too busy playing other games to touch this half-baked POS... I'll save myself a headache and solve all of the bugs and glitches the easy way... by returning it for a refund.

Stop funding this already!
Why would Chris Roberts ever finish the game as long as he's getting paid not to?

I don't see it happening, but to be honest, it'd be nice if it did, because I do seriously want to play Forza Horizons 2... I'm just not spending 400 bucks on a seriously underpowered piece of shit.

Forza Horizon 2 is great, even if it is locked to 30fps. I'm up to driver level 145 and I've only finished 25% of the races.

Faster memory doesn't do all that much. It doesn't negate that their GPU solution is roughly 40% less powerful than the PS4 one.

Well, developers blame the limited 32MB eSRAM cache and slow DDR3 for the difficulty in reaching 1080p/60fps. Either doubling the eSRAM or upgrading to DDR5 would solve the problem, although faster DDR is always better since it doesn't require programming tricks to utilize.

Yes, the console would still be underpowered, although by much less than the 40% PS4 fanboys like to quote.
The CPUs are both 8-core Jaguars, but the XB1's is 10% faster. The GPUs are basically the same, but the PS4 has 50% more CU/shaders, which is offset somewhat by the XB1's 6.6% faster GPU clock and reduced latency due to direct access to the GPU (bypassing some of the driver overhead). In other words, the extra shaders would allow better particle effects on the PS4 (e.g. thicker smoke, heavier rain, etc) but the XB1 would have the higher frame rate... that is, if it weren't hampered by the slow memory. BTW, the only reason we don't notice a difference in shader quality now is because 720p/900p has only 45%/70% of the pixels to shade versus a 1080p image.

There's no way in hell MS is splitting the base.

But MicroSoft already split their user base when they released a flaccid XBone... many of them bought a PS4.
