Eh, it's news. I find it pretty interesting that the guy went back after his little bitch temper tantrum.

He's still fucked though, as I'm fairly certain Valve isn't even going to bother to reply to anything from their shitty company ever again, so good luck selling your indie games without Steam, fellas!

is it just one big file that you copy over to another machine and dump in the same directory?

I did this with Mass Effect 3 a few days ago. Download the game wherever, open the Origin Games folder and you should see the new game. Copy it to a flash (consider zipping it first) and move it to the other computer. Tell Origin to download the game on the new computer. After it starts going, stop the download and close Origin. Rename or delete the folder it created. Copy your game in to the folder. Restart Origin. It should bypass the download and do a short install.

Worked fine with ME3. Might be an easier way, but I dunno. Haven't done it very often.

I did the same thing, except I didn't bother to delete/rename the old folder, just copied over the top of it.

This didn't use to work with games that were installed, only with games that had been downloaded, but maybe they've finally fixed it to the point where it now works for all of them. I'll give it a try on Monday with some other games.

Nope, no preload for Aussies until the 18th.

You can use a VPN to get it unlocked. Plenty of people have already done so according to Bioware's forum. These people are also going to be playing Monday morning, as they'll just pretend to be in Japan or something.

Wooohooo! While it doesn't work with games that are already released, you CAN download Origin preloads on a faster pipe, then port them over to your slow-as-shit connected machine, and it'll work. Just saved myself 80ish hours of preloading.

C'MON TUESDAY!!!

No, it's just the entire install directory, but Origin has apparently gotten smart enough to realize "oh, these files are already here!" and just skips the entire downloading process. You know, like Steam USED to be able to do

Sorry, I'm hijacking this thread since this is a dumb game anyway and past its prime.

DA Inquisition is preloading. Cant wait!
Yep. And for those that ordered from GMG, keys are out as well.

Cool that GMG has started handing out keys already, you should be able to preload.

Btw, you can actually move a preload from a fast connection computer to a slow connection computer. Woohoo!

Has it only been a YEAR since Snowden??? It feels like that's been going on for a fucking decade already.

“The American people are wondering whether Congress can get anything done,” Leahy said in a statement issued Wednesday. “The answer is yes, they should wonder about that, because we are about as useful as a tit on a waffle.”

Things IT people never say

"You're right, I've changed my mind. I WILL support your personal laptop!"

I haven't made it to the article to know if you are quoting or not... But that one is indeed fact.

No, that's a personal one. The amount of requests I get to support personal:

- laptops
- iphones
- tablets
- printers

etc, is staggering. A colleague of mine actually got a ticket a few weeks back from someone complaining that her phone wouldn't pair to her car's bluetooth. And she felt that the IT department should support that, and was HIGHLY offended that we wouldn't.

Sadly, my director did not follow my suggestion of "fire her dumb ass on the spot."

Ubisoft has acknowledged the problems and appears to be pushing hard to correct them, and also says that it's looking at ways to change its reviews policies to better serve its customers in the future.

And then at the same time they refuse to hand out PC review code for Far Cry 4 until the day the game ships.

Whatever Ubisoft. Fuck you sideways with a rusty fucking pipe, lying bastards. The next time you have a turd of a game, you're going to do the exact same thing.

You're on my permanent 5 bucks list now. I'll get your games when they're 5 bucks. Fuck you and your bullshit treatment of your customers, you miserable pieces of shit.

All of you who preordered FC4, you have been warned. The port was done by the same studio (Kiev) who did the Unity "port", and you can see from Verno's quote below what glorious work they did there.

Aw shit. Here. 256TB RAM, a core i19@5.3Ghz and a GTXMegaForceSupreme99990Ti.
Well the good news is you will not need specs like that to play the other space game that is due out in a month
and instead of a digital cigar or hair comb they are giving all beta testers an additional free ship (your choice of the 5 new ships) as a thank you for the support.
Oh yeah and there will be 5 more ships in the final game than what was promised in the kickstarter

I know, I will be getting it, but probably not until March or so. Too much to play in between now and then.

How A Disgraced College Chain Trapped Its Students In Poverty

I thought that story would be crap, because Buzzfeed. But it was actually pretty good.

It's also fucking disgusting.

May I recommend the fucking death penalty for Jack Massimino, Marc Morial, Leon Panetta and certainly not least, Ken Jenkins. Oh, but Morial and Panetta worked for the government, so obviously nothing will ever happen to them. Swindle hundreds of thousands of people for billions of dollars? You're fine! THIS IS AMERICA!

They should fucking shoot these bastards in the face.

Ubisoft put literally no effort into porting from the consoles. They took advantage of bare-metal console APIs to push 50,000 draw calls per frame (which is outrageously unoptimized already), and they just stuck that as-is on DirectX 11, which tends to hork up around 10,000 calls per frame.

Some Ubi Toronto anon on reddit. So yeah it sounds like just bad optimization.

Ubisoft Kiev strikes again! Far Cry 4 should just be FANTASTIC...
