Yeah I've tried multiple times. Not really an earthshaking issue.

because, EXPLOOOOOOOOOOOOOSIONS! *wicked air guitar*

I love Torque.

That said, the badassasaurus was just a stupid, stupid battle. No cover to hide behind, the thing zaps your health in roughly half a second with its megadeathlaserbreath thing, like everything in Borderlands it has 987 trillion health. Ugh.

I wonder when devs began to think that "let's make players slog against this thing for 45 minutes!" was actually fucking fun. Because I'd like to travel back in time to that exact moment and kick those fuckers in the balls.

I finally wound up beating the PoS boss by cheesing him from outside the arena. Took like 30 minutes too. Such fun...

How's the mouse look in this game? My buddy said you have to hold the button down constantly..
Has that changed? Is it really cumbersome/fatiguing?

I was used to it from GW2 so it never bothered me, but it can see how it's annoying to a lot of people. On the flipside, I can also see why a Skyrim type system wouldn't work so well, as you need to be able to click on the main screen without panning. (And all the games that have tried a "click space to switch between panning or clicking" approach really have always felt cumbersome to me.)

So yeah, you do wind up holding that right mouse button an AWFUL lot, and it can definitely cause your arm to hurt.

Maybe this time they'll actually bother to install it on a PC to see if it actually works? Nah, probably not.

That said, I had five of the bugs in the SP list, so it's nice to see them being fixed.

Dude...

For some reason this website never works when I enter my profile name, keeps saying it can't find a user with that name even when I make my profile public. And obviously I refuse to log my Steam credentials into some unknown website (And I pity the poor suckers who do.)

5. Re: Steam Update Adds Broadcasting, FPS Counter Jan 20, 2015, 00:52 Creston
 
It's cool that Steam offers this, but game broadcasting is pretty bandwith intensive, so I hope this doesn't further burden their already pretty taxed bandwith availability.

Or is it purely peer-to-peer?

The fact you can call them in but others can steal/conquer the drop from you actually seems like a pretty fun idea. How well it works in the game itself remains to be seen.

Edit: I didn't realize you have to buy this with actual money. So you pay actual money for other people to wind up with your shit? Well, we can't say games aren't getting more and more scummy about trying to milk every fucking dollar out of you. Soon two people will buy a game, then before they can actually play it they'll be forced into a one-on-one deathmatch, with the loser's credit card getting billed for both copies plus a 20% "We Are Awesome Publishers, Huh?!" penalty.

Who the fuck knows what that app did to your machine.

Nothing. We used Superantispyware at work for years. There's nothing wrong with it aside from being fairly slow, it worked as well as Malwarebytes did. Malwarebytes was faster, though if a system needed a cleanup I usually ran both since they each found things the other didn't in quite a few cases.

I use mwbytes and combofix. Combofix basically kills everything, but unfortunately it also has the occasional tendency to kill your entire windows install while it's cleaning.

Thanks for info guys. I just loaded Win7 on it for simplicity for him. he doesn't have an MSN account, and I wasn't going to walk him through all of that. He is good with Win7, we will just leave it at that.

One very cool tool I used, since I had to do a fresh install of Win7 and all drivers for this Toshiba model are Win8, this tool worked like a dream - so much so that I donated to the site.

Driver Identifier.

No more trying 10 different things not knowing what that stupid little yellow question mark is. Thing worked like a dream. Awesome.


Never heard of that before, thanks Bats!

I'm personally looking forward to it. I like the changes to the start menu, the win8 style file transfers, and native support for multiple desktops (bout time!). I guess i'm in the minority though.

Oh, I'll actually get Windows 10 when it comes out (well, once the first SP is out anyway). I don't have an issue with the OS itself, as it looks pretty solid.

I take issue with Microsoft continuously mouthing off with their bullshit "THIS WILL BE THE BESTSEST FOR TEH PC GAMURZ!" and the game 'media' just parroting those blatant lies whole every.single.fucking.time.

I could see a 30 day jail sentence as reasonable but five years? Waaaay over the top and not beneficial to anyone.

Bullshit. Sending a SWAT team to someone's house "for the lulz" runs the very real risk of those people actually BEING FUCKING KILLED for no other reason than that some shitbag online took some kind of offense at something they said.

Fuck that thirty days noise.

I think 8/8.1 hooks up to the xbox store or something. I briefly poked around in it, but there were too many roadblocks when I was just trying to play a game of solitaire.

{Windows 10 clippy} It looks like you're trying to play a game of Solitaire. Would you like help with that? {/Windows 10 clippy}

This and the other Cities game should sort out their naming because it's fucking confusing!

Yeah, I know. I believe this is the one from the guys who made the pretty shitty Cities XL series (you know, that series that uses one CPU core and thus every city above a certain size chugs like crazy, no matter the fact you have 16 fucking Xeon cores in your rig), and thus should probably be ignored.

Cities: Skylines is the one that offers cities that dwarf SimCity 4 and looks actually promising.


But I may be confusing the two...

Well, when my expectations are now zero...

Rather than saying the original Watch Dogs under-delivered, he says they "over-achieved" in creating expectations for the series.

Wow, that's some awesome kool-aid...


PREORDER NOW!!!!!!!!

We promise we'll have an intern actually download the game and see if it runs installs(*) on Suzy's old Vostro 220 this time!

(*) Please don't make grandiose promises.
