Borderlands is played out, they should really think of some new games.


given how many times people here demanded to go to the moon base, I'd say there's a lot of demand for this particular product. Especially if Randy is right and its value priced.

Oh wow the 295X2! time to read reviews!! ty

Conclusion: Its probably loud as hell like most 200 Radeon Cards.

The benchmarks have been misleading as well since they pit the "295" against regular stock 780's rather than 780 Ti's, which are superior.

Liquid cooled, so at 50dbl, it's actually somewhat quiet.

But, $1400 for a card that, unless you're running 3 monitors at insanely high resolutions, really doesn't do much better than a PC that costs the same amount. Sure, you get 500fps instead of 200fps, but at that point...

News Comments > Watch Dogs Requires Uplay
30. Re: Watch Dogs Requires Uplay Apr 8, 2014, 16:36 Beamer
 
UPlay was easy to ignore with FC3 for me. I'd launch via Steam and it would launch. When I closed out, it would tell me I had some rewards or something, and I'd close it. I never looked into what those rewards meant or were. I once forgot to close it and clocked 50 hours in FC3 on Steam without actually playing. But it was just another layer, something that opened on its own and I had to close.

It was redundant, it was stupid, it offered me nothing, but it wasn't horribly detrimental.

I respect @BrendanEich for not doing the craven belly crawl of apology when he was set upon by the mob.

So does he have to resign?

You really just don't understand any of this, do you?
No matter how many times it has been explained to you as if you had the mental horsepower of a small child?
You really fail to understand how "CEO" made this different, and how "Mozilla" made this different?

It would be nice if you were a troll, but you aren't. You're just unintelligent. And you're unintelligent in a way that the internet makes you feel superior, despite you intentionally avoiding looking at facts and instead finding the best possible way to keep your viewpoint.

As for Yagan's donation, there's an enormous difference between a 24 year old donating to a candidate that supports many issues including "traditional marriage" and a 50-something year old donating money exclusively to the cause of banning gay marriage.
But he should explain himself. Silence makes him look ridiculous.

Right, as I just posted, the more information you present opposing their view, the harder they cling to said view. It's really a conundrum.

I find that a lot of it extends from an unwillingness to try to understand (understanding does not have to equal agree with btw) the opposing side. That is on both sides. Instead people get defensive whenever someone presents an opposing view and, as jdreyer said, instinctively cling to their ideaology more and more vehemently, often getting beligerent in the process. People complain, and rightly so, that those who oppose them are not thoughtfully considering their viewpoint while paradoxically the same people are outright dismissing the viewpoints that oppose their own.

That goes for understanding why video game companies do dumb things, too.
But, when you try to understand them, SimCity.

Yup.
I used to be convinced half this arguing was just posturing. I think, though, after a generation of this, we're starting to get politicians that truly believe in these pointless wastes of time.

Too hilarious Beamer - your response after parroting cut/paste lib talking points.

Brief History of complete failure:

YES WE CAN YEA WE CAN.

6 years later...

Need to figure out who to blame for this mess. here goes...

"So Obama is terrible, not even I can pretend to hope anymore... can still sorta blame Bush. Really need to blame the republicans somehow, keep the blame game going... Lets see... the race card is kinda old, can use that one still on the tea party for those who have no clue. Hmm we got gays, women, wars, jobs, press, wall street, wow we got quite the list! Could go on... but depressing really, none of it works much these days -- same old shit though they see right through it. I GOT IT! WOOO I GOT IT! The DEMOCRATIC Administration can blame those rascal republicans for anything they opposed. Wait... WAIT - for EVERYTHING they opposed! We don't even need any facts for this one again, just say it over and over like always! Just "Hey we had all the greatest ideas that would have fixed everything even better -- and they were turned down by Republicans!"

Need to figure out how to show what Obama has done has worked. here goes...

"I got nuthin."

Beamer says: I think all politicians are wasting our time, and the worst part is, some of them actually believe that's a good thing

Axis hears: I love Obama. He's been amazing. He is flawless. He is wonderful.



I don't even know how to respond to your post, or why I should read your rant, when it has nothing to do with anything that's been posted here. As always, you hear what you want to hear and somehow take something bashing everyone and turn it into something that makes your particular favorite "team" the victims of a massive slander. This is why no one takes you seriously.

Xbox TV boss says PlayStation's TV commitment is 'unclear'.

Newsflash: I didn't spend $400 on a device to watch tv, when I already own a tv. Try again.

Those fucks just don't get it.


I'm going to step back and say that, if the Xbox One managed to make watching TV less annoying, I'd have purchased one day one.
But it doesn't. It doesn't replace your shitty cable box, it just adds an extra layer between you and it. While this layer may solve some things (like making it easier to navigate the utterly absurd channel layout Comcast has), it assuredly makes other things worse and makes everything slower, as if it wasn't too slow already.

So yeah, they may see a problem in the market, and they may be committed to solving it, but they failed.

I hate buggy games. I hate the damn devs release now fix later policy. I've always hated it, I've always riled against it. I hated it when it was just a PC thing. I hated it when consoles took up the practice once they were able to patch. Now I see a game that's buggy as hell and everyone is flocking to it and fucking celebrating it! Ya it pisses me off.

Not all bugs are bad, and sometimes they actually make things better.
Unless, of course, you think id should have fixed rocket jumping.

And whatever the Dems haven't accomplished you can fully blame on GOP obstructionism. Fully.

Even then, it's mostly the tea partiests and libertarians that Axis is applauding that have been obstructing. "Balls" is apparently being unwilling to come to an agreement to the benefit of the country and instead trying to carve out your own little theocracy.

Oh you'll find a good majority of conservative Americans aren't looking for "republicans" for leadership, they have pinhead balls that are afraid of even a breath of a democrat.

We're looking for libertarian and tea party conservatives who stick their gigantic balls forcefully in the liberal mouth so we can get some shit done. All about a balance you see...

There's far too many republicans and democrats who will be getting fired over the next couple years.

Things tea party policians have "done" so far:
1) Yelled
2) Called for a revote on the same topic in excess of 3 dozen times
3) Seen Russia from their house
4) Had their fathers say they had a divine right to the country
5) Pissed on people that aren't tea partiers
6) Pissed on people that aren't white
7) Pissed on people that aren't Christian

MS did the same thing for a 'free' month of Skype. They needed a card/paypal to activate the free trial and then they gave the dollar back to your account. Then at the end of the trial period--automatic renewal at full price. I called and got my money back.
It's called backward billing. Not saying ESO is doing this--just a heads up.

It's bad that they automatically convert you, but it's also to make sure people don't just endlessly sign up for free months. You need a credit card for the free month, and it gets tied either to the CC# or, more likely, the billing address. It prevents fraud.

That they tie you into a forced charge after is sketchy, awkward, and not why they make you enter the credit card. It's just someone taking advantage of it afterwards.

Eh, I agree it's probably not rushed, but prequel story, featuring the villain everyone loved, done by a different studio, four characters with names that sound rather like the four from BL2.

Pretty much screams "Let's milk this franchise for all its worth!" to me.

Plus it's a villain whose backstory we've already had and whose backstory isn't overly interesting outside of what we've already seen. John was boring. Jack was interesting. I don't want to spend time with John.

Ford is already dumping windows in the car as it's digital display is abased on it and is a compete disaster. Most of the reviews down grade ford cars because of this. A marketing disaster.

Not entirely true. The reviews bash MyTouch, which sucks, not Sync, which most seem to like. MyTouch stupidly is (or at least was in 2013) resistive touch screens. And it replaces easy to find physical buttons with on screen commands you need to search for.

Sync won awards. When partnered with MyTouch, it fell apart. Sync still had its issues, and some of those may disappear when they move to an opensource platform, but Ford will still get trashed because touch screens, especially not-very-sensitive touchscreens, aren't how anyone wants to control their car's thermostat.

I actually very much enjoy Tower Defense games, though more on mobile. Orcs Must Die was one of the best recent series for me.

And I don't get how someone could find a joke game so infuriating. I'll pick it up for $5, play it for two hours, and be done with it.

I'd love me some more Borderlands as long as they keep the same flavor of gameplay and storytelling.

Yeah, I thought they knocked it out of the park with Handsome Jack. Not sure the backstory and all that worked, but the actual scenes with him were pretty stellar.

I wasn't a big BL1 fan, but I only played it multiplayer, and split screen at that, so I really missed a lot of it. BL2 I did multiplayer online, as well as singleplayer, so I definitely got the feel for what was going on. For about two months I played that game more than everything else that year combined.

I didn't get into farming weapons until after I was finished, aside from farming the final boss for a Conference Call. Other than farming, I felt I was getting good weapons constantly and (mostly) had a decent handle on how each weapon was better than the next. Kind of. It wasn't always obvious.

You should never have to enter payment information initially. I am glad I did not purchase this game just because of that. I could care less that it is subscription, but telling me I can't play because I don't enter a credit card that is ludicrous.

As others are pointing out, this is often done to prevent abuse. It keeps away spammers.

Plenty of online sites do similar things to prove you're a real person, too, but typically it's a $0.15.

Blue allows this here? You mean... he allows freedom of speech for you guys? Shocking! Well anyways, this is a real person that created a game that you did not like. Any flipping reason why you would trash him like this? Do you make mistakes? I can understand attacking his credentials and skill, but this is taking it a tad far. I guess if I was like you I would say go kill yourself about right now? Sad...

This time if I get banned for speaking my mind here while everyone else gets off free, I will talk to my lawyer about it. You people need to start paying a price for your ignorance.

oh good, another nitwit with "liberty" in his name that doesn't understand the constitution and never read it. I'd wonder why these types are so ignorant, especially as he isn't the only one doing it here in the past week, but I suppose ignorance is the only way to become this type.

and again, this is fact, not insult. Feeling blue violated your freedom of speech is ignorant. Unquestionably ignorant. Like a child.
