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...

something on your end is blocking the css from loading, specifically styles.css adblock or script block being overzealous? Aside that I have no idea... and hope someone can help you

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?

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!

I didn't give them anything, so, sure, take all the time you want.

I didn't either (save for my 'Golden Ticket'...which seems now more like a Golden Shower ) but SC being so high profile, it has the capacity to completely demolish any momentum the 're-emergent' space-sim genre has been getting and that's what concerns me. Not to mention that having another game with a DNF-like development period doesn't look good for games in general...

No, you said Arkham City was developed by IG, which isn't true. So yes, you did misread. Anyways, welcome to ignore jackass.

Giggle If you put everyone that disagrees with you on ignore, you won't be reading much in the comments.

I pointed out that I had gotten the names of the dev and the game wrong, but you had no problem glossing over that fact. You cover a burn with gauze not lies and ignorance.

Regardless, I look forward to my stay in purgatory if that means I don't have to worry about hearing you point out every little thing I do that annoys you...unprovoked and out of fucking nowhere, mind you...

The studio is called Iron Galaxy, and they only developed Arkham Origins, which was released in a far more stable state than this garbage.

Also, you don't need to sign each post with your name and dashes and periods, it's already in the upper right hand corner.

Thanks, Mom. Seeing how I've been doing it for nearly 15 years on Blues alone and you're the only person to ever have a problem with it, I don't find it an issue. If it bothers you so much, put me on ignore.

As for Iron Sky or Iron Galaxy or whatever, everyone seems to know who I was speaking about, though that would explain why I couldn't find information on it specifically the other day...not that I took much time to look. You obviously knew who I was talking about, and further what game I was talking about in order to correct my mistake, so, again, I don't consider it an issue...

Anything else you want to bust my balls over or are you finished?

EDIT: Wait...wait..wait....I almost missed that....

The studio is called Iron Galaxy, and they only developed Arkham Origins

Bullshit. They were the ones that developed this port for the PC. I've seen it said a million fucking times already! (name notwithstanding) You have no clue what the hell you're talking about. I didn't do a lot of research, (sorry, contrary to what you may think, I DO have a life) but I know what I've read and I know that the same studio that pushed out this turd was the same one that put out the previous one, also contracted by Rocksteady.

In fact, look at that, it's right here in BLACK AND WHITE: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iron_Galaxy_Studios

(From #7 on the 'References' list at above mentioned Wikipedia link:)

" Game director Sefton Hill has suggested that the PC port of Batman: Arkham Knight was outsourced to Iron Galaxy, stating that Warner Bros is working with the developer "to address the issues ASAP".

Case closed.

Whatever they can...at this point, they're just spending money on making fluff pieces to keep the fanboys from rioting...Throw them in the Q/A dungeon, whatever, anything that progresses the game...

The FURY X (i'm waiting for the Nano, personally) isn't all about pure speed, which is pretty much the only thing you green tossers care about. It has a 4096-bit memory interface! What's the 980 got? 256-bit. Blech! HBM memory is going to wipe the floor with Nvidia this go 'round and they know it which is why they're abandoning GDDR for it too!

Ummm... so you are using special applications (it can't be games because the memory bandwidth is not that significant for gaming) that require this kind of memory throughput? Which apps would that be?

There is a reason why nVidia has not been using HBM yet. It's limiting (4GB is max right now) and expensive. nVidia are smart cookies. They will be using HBM when it's ready for prime time and are not going to deliver an undercooked tech demo like AMD.

The Fury is a weak sauce GPU. Its performance barely matches GTX 980Ti in select benchmarks but mostly it trails behind on GTX 980 level while the price is the same as the Ti.
The 4GB memory does become limiting in higher res scenarios.
Many of the review samples have suffered from both, coil and water pump whining. AMD has *supposedly* addressed the pump whine but reports of the first retail cards indicate that the issue has only been reduced, not eliminated.
Example video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZQ-nYJLiEh0
Overclocking is a no show. It's very limited even though the card stays cool. The limitation seems to be within the architecture which does not allow voltage increases. A fully overclocked 980Ti is running circles around FuryX.
According to some mags, the card does not work in conjunction with certain Asus boards (Z87 chipset). One mag tried testing FuryX in crossfire and it resulted in crashes and black screens. It didn't even boot.
Power efficiency has become better but is still no match for nVidia Maxwell.
Finally, even though relatively minor niggles, but no DVI and no HDMI 2.0 outputs is pretty weak, too.

You are aware I was over-reacting on purpose, yes? Thanks for the HardOCP read though, I haven't gotten over there yet to read about it. I'm still holding out for a Nano anyway. It's just so cute...

Edit: From the admittedly little I've really dug into it, the Fury X doesn't have Crossfire support right now anyway, which would explain why it had so much trouble. The system I'm building is based on the X99-chipset so I'm not all that concerned about Z87 performance issues. Of course, that's just me, obviously the market is not geared to just my whims (yet) ...
