My iPad's not jailbroken or anything, just a normal iOS install and some games and apps. Nothing out of the ordinary and yet Chrome refuses to play nice.

probly needs a cpu bigger than a TI calculator

Movingalong Then it's not doing it's job. If Safari can run fine on it, then I see no reason why Chrome can't. Safari leaves much to be desired but at least it's stable. There's no logical reason why Google can't buckle down some of Chrome's extraneous RAM usage and get it running on older (yet still valid) devices. The iPad2 is, admittedly, the last one on the non-Retina line still to be supported and 32-bit, but it is still supported, nonetheless. If Google can't get it working correctly on it, that's on Google, not Apple. (Can't believe I'm saying that but it is what it is)

iOS? Lol...;) The answer is "get yourself a computer" and join the grown-up world and you'll have all of the choice you could want in everything, browsers, software, hardware (unless you buy a Mac, but that's another story.) IMO, anyone who restricts his web browsing to a friggin' cell-phone deserves all the "Safari" he's gonna' get...;)
Ugh!

You forget that a lot of us use multiple devices that aren't exclusive. In fact, I've used my iPad2 multiple times to look up Industrialcraft2 recipes and tutorials while playing Minecraft so I didn't have to jump out and back in. (Not to mention that leaving Chrome open while running Minecraft on my 6gig system is bound to give me performance hitches after an hour or so). I also use the iPad2 for my racing sims as a secondary side display (as do many flight simmers)...

MS wants to release Win10 this month but I've been working with the latest builds of it every day and it's still a horribly buggy mess right now... there's also serious bugs that MS said to us that they are not planning on fixing until Fall/Nov 2015! there's no way I'm going to switch from WinBlue (8.1) until at least Win10 SP1 comes out, or only when they start seriously fixing the bugs. the DX12 exclusive games will have to wait before i play them.

if you use win8.1 willingly, there is no reason to listen to anything coming out of your mouth

better idea would be to ignore everything you say from now on

THat's pretty ignorant.

Agreed, that's a very ingnorant statement, probably not made from experience. Windows 8 was a waste but Windows 8.1 was a much better beast. While I've stepped back to Windows 7/x64, it was under the notion that my system didn't like 8.1 much. It was only later that I found it was really the lack of a BIOS update and setting my RAM speed back to 1066 from 1600 that was causing me trouble. Aside from those issues, 8.1 was solid and stable. I counted myself as one of those that gave 8.1 the virtual finger since the beginning but I'm not too proud to admit that I was so very wrong. Once the START menu was replaced (with a free app, no less), it was a better experience than with Win7. System response times were faster and things didn't crash as often, nor did they take the whole system with them in the occasions when they did. Your opinion is just that, and I personally, think it is incorrect and seriously flawed.

The last Ace Combat game was pretty snazzy. Played nice and was rather beautiful graphics-wise. More arcadey but not nearly as bad as that god awful filth, HAWX. Just something about HAWX kicked me completely out of it every time...

So, wait, you're telling me that by voting for the candidate I don't like, I'm affecting more change than by not voting at all?! What?! You guys are crazy!

Imagine if those who didn't see a candidate they liked refused to vote at all. All of them. Say only (pulling from thin air here) only 5% vote - for a presidential election. You don't think they're not going to notice? And even if they don't, the media will, and that is the point. The media will harp up and down that our confidence in respectable, electable candidates has disappeared, dried up. It won't effect that election, but bet your ass the two parties will think twice about running the same old song an dance again.

You're not going to affect change by voting for the other guy. What message does that send? They'll just think, like with Obama, that he was popular or had a popular message, not that everyone hated both candidates. Besides, I'm not going to know who will win, so how am I to know who to vote for? If I don't like either one, which one do I choose? It's stupid. Not voting sends a clear message that I don't like the established set of candidates and until such time as someone comes along that I think will actually be a benefit to this country, I will continue to keep my vote silent. Your method is madness and does nothing to help the larger problem!

The newest fad in these crafting type games is undeniably ARK. Despite the high demands of its engine it has already hit some impressive numbers.

http://steamcharts.com/app/346110

Once it gets DX12 and SLI support (both supposedly in July), I'll probably get on board and run a server of my own.

I don't really like these types of games that have more akin to Day Z than Minecraft. You can't really affect the world. You just place more models on top of it. Plus they're usually more about PVP and less about survival, which I don't like so much. 7 Days to Die is probably the best of both worlds though. Robust survival and it's "cube" based(more like pyramids actually) like Minecraft, except with good graphics.

7DtD should be a no brainer for most survival nuts but for some reason it just doesn't grab me. I've tried, boy have I tried. But something is just missing. Personality could be one. The world is rather static. No NPC's except the zombies. Not trading, no end-game. Just pure survival and whatever you feel like building. Yes, you can affect the world and dig and whatnot, but unless you're building something, there's no real reason to. Is there a 'bottom' to the world, anyway? I never found one. And while the graphics are more 'realistic', they're kinda boring. Even with the new graphics engine...I dunno, it's just...dull... *shrugs*

Who else would buy this shit? The same people that buy Amibo's, the same people that buy anything at a booth in a Comic-Con, the same people that bought Beanie-Babies, the same people that buy twenty year old LEGO sets, the same people that buy Clone Wars toys and then put them on a shelf.

And what do we all do? Sit here and bitch about it. Yet, come election day, we'll gladly check those marks for the same bastards that have been in office most of their life and probably will retire there...

I'm sorry, you can't complain (well, I mean you 'can', but still) if you blindly go in and vote the same mothersfuckers in each and every time and each and every time they do nothing. Who's stupider? The fool or the fool that keeps voting them into office?

I'm 37 and I haven't voted once in my life. Not once. Only because no one has come around that had me thinking they would actually make a damn bit of difference. And I don't foresee anyone in the near half century either! Dark, sad days ahead of us and the only one to blame is ourselves!

You've probably already run CCleaner?

Well, to be honest, it's kind of irrelevant because I use both Windows 8.1/x64 and Windows7/x64. The Windows 8 install is rather old, at least a year and a half and the Windows 7 install is only about a month and a half old and squeaky clean. And this happens on both installs. I could run it for the hell of it, just to be sure, but I'm not sure it would do anything drastic. I appreciate you asking though...

Possible. I wouldn't know where to check first though. Huh I mean, I have Adblock but only it's default settings. I've tried with it disabled and the result was the same.

If you want something kept private, like your freakout over GTA being delayed and your intent to pirate it, or Rattleheads posturing over getting a refund and pirating...then don't announce it to the world on a public forum. Especially if it turns out you are just flat out lying.

Discussion of pirating software is not permitted on Blues News and you will be called on it, not just by me.

Your analogy is ridiculous. I wasn't looking at his private files.

Oh for fucks sake, Krovven, do I have to really spell it out for you? Really?

Don't announce it on a public forum. Fine. You just totally missed the whole other part about having a discussion NOT on a public forum, but on a PM on STEAM and then bringing that argument and what was said back over here, just like you did to whoever during our previous argument! How hard is that? You want to call people out on Blues for whatever, fine. My problem is bringing private discussions into a public space, usually as a shaming tactic. I don't think I can make that any more clear.

My analogy about my files wasn't about 'files', it was about it being private, on another totally unrelated part of the Internet and then bringing that knowledge back here to publicly call me out and/or shame me for it. Understand now?

Seems Notch's notorious MO for starting things and abandoning them has been rubbing off. I fear for Minecraft, I really truly do. They've done nothing but little meaningless stuff for many versions now. They put in bunnies, banners and mutton and the community loses their shit but God forbid they actually update the graphics engine and discontinue support for 10 year old video cards! Most of everything in the game worth playing around with has come from the massive mod community. The devs themselves should hang their heads in shame, especially 'Dinnerbone'. He messes with stuff, posts a screen of it on his Twitter and then we might see something like it five versions later.

As for Scrolls, I guess I better get to actually trying it before it's gone. I'm not surprised.


=-Rigs-=

Notch has nothing to do with Mojang anymore and washed his hands of it in 2014 when Microsoft took over.

I realize that but surely some of his massive 'dive-into-the-pile-ScroogeMcDuck-style' of money is still invested in some way?

Let's just make something clear here...I called Rattlehead out on his bullshit and he messaged me on Steam freaking out about it being none of my business.

If you make your statements about your own intentions or actions on Blues, it becomes the business of anyone that reads it. You open yourself up to criticism.

Rattlehead has been posting for a week about how the game runs like shit on his system and that he was going to be getting a refund (kinda sounded like he had already) and pirating the game. This is all things he stated on Blues for anyone to read. Turns out, he was still progressing through the game and anyone on his friends list could see that.

So he either he a) Didn't get a refund despite all his posturing about it, or b) Did pirate it and was dumb enough to give the pirated copy internet access. I called him on it.

Turns out he never paid for the game to begin with. He got it with his video card like many others did...and he thought he'd get a refund from Steam for something he never paid Steam for, never mind completely illogical. /facepalm

Does someone getting this free excuse Rocksteady or WB over the state of the game for some people? No. But it really does go to show the sheer stupidity of some folks.

Rattlehead wrote on Jun 24, 2015, 20:58:
WB has just suspended all sales of the game. Just unbelievable. Of course they won't issue refunds, as they have our money.

I got a refund from Steam, and will pirate this game.

Rattlehead wrote on Jun 24, 2015, 10:24:
...I got a refund on Steam...

This port is nearly unplayable...

So within the same day, you state that they won't issue refunds, twice you already got a refund, and once that you will pirate it. And you stated it was unplayable, yet you've still been progressing through the game.

Referring to the other thread on this topic...this is why I take the whiney bitches and their complaints with a massive grain of salt. There are rational complaints and behaviour and then there is irrational complaints and behaviour.


Fucking beautiful work you did there, Krovven. Calling ppl on their bullshit like this puts a grin on my face! xD

Please. Krovven's apparent MO is to make public that which should be kept private. He did it before during our argument to the poor sod who asked him to chill and he's doing it again here. What does he gain by calling him out? Granted, I don't agree with the little erchin and he pretty much pissed in my Corn Flakes out of the blue and for no reason, but still, I'm not going to go into his personal life and air dirty laundry.

God forbid anyone should see what's on my 4 terabytes worth of hard drive space. I have no problem with admitting I pirate games, if only because I live paycheck to paycheck and they don't make demos anymore. More of an excuse but so be it. I do it because I can? Yeah, probably that too. So if he went over to, oh, say, Pastebin, and looked up my hard drive directory listing (yes, it's there) and came back here and lambasted me for it, I wouldn't be pissed because he looked for it, I'd be pissed because he came back here, to a totally unrelated place and publicly gave me shit about it while trying to look like he's doing it for the 'greater good'. Because, why else would he be? Attention? Well, yeah, that too, obviously. And you sit here and slap him on the back for it?! What the hell is wrong with you, Quinn?! This isn't fucking high school, grow the fuck up!
