Anyone, how does this work? Unaware.

Right next to the "Post Comment" button is a checkbox labeled "Email me when this topic is updated." Simple as that.

Sorry, got it. I'm talking about a message system within Blue's, emails being sent is messy.

For mobile, you need to make it narrow and have adds in that narrowness, the fatter you make the site the smaller the text is and then one is always resizing every page.

A Like system. Fosters community and easy to do.

At this point I'm looking at changes to the main page, the forums are going to be a whole other sticky wicket. But I'll comment on these suggestions.

Increase URL length limits.

Long URLs break the forum format, so the URL code is to fix that... just that people have a hard time working it.

Secondary, embed photo's/movies. Adds spice.

And porn, and more moderation issues. May be a tough bridge to cross.

Otherwise look and feel is good.

Other than that, how did you enjoy the show, Mrs. Lincoln?

Blue yah just suggestions. I go to a lot of forums with pics/vids and porn isn't an issue. It is a strict ban, I have to assume all the posters here get around various places and act according to site rules. To me a lot of pics/vids add whit and humor. Thanks.

Bummer. I thought it'd be here sooner. That's cutting it kind of close to Fallout's release date.

I'm not complaining really. It's a free update for me.

Between the Director's Cut of Wasteland 2 and Fallout 4, I'm much more interested in W2DC. That game was great in spite of being a buggy mess on release day, it'll be amazing(hopefully!) with the added content and other patches.

D:OS EE will be in that time frame as well.

Drones go down a similar but not totally equal path that we are discussing with privacy and win10.

On one side I'd love to have a setup where I have drone, go pro, controller and first person goggles. That looks amazing, simply amazing to pilot.

However if even enough people did it, it would be insane. Then the privacy. Then the safety. So who gets the rights to fly? What will be limits in all aspects? So many questions and the issue is too many will break the laws around them going straight into privacy and safety rules.

I'd heard someone suggest these were not tiny recreational drones, these might have been heavy duty commercial drones that a news station might put up there.

Probably more like a commercial freelance that would sell it to the news stations.

I log in to Win10 with a local account and disable anything that looks like it could leak private information. It's pretty up front though. You're not having to dive into the registry to make these changes.

This is assuming there are no additional hidden shenanigans, which I believe we have right to question due to recent history. Or do we have different levels of concern? Gov't being fed data vs Commercial Companies getting data sold to them? Are they different to you? One worst than the other?

Personally I have settled that if my computer is connected to the Internet anything on it and anything I do is considered "doing it in public". I have to assume my actions are being or can be recorded at levels I'll never understand.

I can not like that and I do not like it. But then there are realities, if they can't just call it for what it is I can. The only way to accept it imo is to take my position, that your internet connected pc is public.

Now for the person that hates this to the point they can't live with it. Then imo you have to think a lot more then I do, you have to use another O/S and really question if the PC can really be hooked to the internet and be safe no matter any O/S. Personally I assume that anything connected to the internet is unsafe in terms of one thinking they are totally private.

Are there any articles/#'s out there with how many people they feel stream games in their own house? I know I could do it, but I just always conclude I rather just play it natively for the best overall experience.

What's lacking from Valve is any statement about Windows 10 support.

Where is their statement about Win 8 support?

The big publishers are charging $60 per game, upwards of $100 for collector's editions, an extra $30 for "season passes" for content that doesn't exist yet, still more for Day 1 DLC so they can charge more than $60 for the complete game, nickel and diming people for cosmetic shit that nobody needs -- and people are attacking a lonesome indie developer for making games that people are enjoying? Get some perspective for fuck's sake.

No shit.

That is one thing I haven't got caught up on, releases in a year. FWIW there is plenty of games releasing tid-bits known as episodes many times a year. To me a game stands on it's own. Do you like it? Was it worth the $$$? That is all that they buyer has to concern themselves with and the watchers whatever they say means nothing. I never had a problem with madden yearly, new rosters is a big deal and for some that is about all they play so $60 a year for 100's of hours, deal. But people will trash it. Dude had a good simple idea, and he made variations for fans at a reasonable price, good for him and the fans that love it.

I guess I'll upgrade to 10 and see what happens.

I was going to wait but meh. I can fix whatever breaks.

I'm not telling regular users to update until later though.

Wow you really held out!

I'm waiting for all the feedback, there will be plenty.

Yeah! In their last "recommitment to PC gaming" news release they forgot to mention only Xbone owners would be able to benefit from it. Good old Microsoft as always...

What would it take from MS to show that they give a crap about PC Gaming? DX12 is, from all early accounts, a massive step forward. Why does everyone ignore that?

Right the O/S they do give us that and it is a big deal. But when they go out of their way to tell us they are doubling down (2x0=0) we expect it means something beyond the O/S as that is a given. I get your point, but their extra oomph doesn't ever seem to line up with pc gamers expectations, rst party games/devices/lose xbone exclusivity. For me I don't care if they do anything at all at this point beyond the O/S, but it is funny when they mention that they have really big plans for PC and it is more XBone features for the PC. Why do people care at all? Because the Xbox division was the day they sort of left us in the cold and they could/should be a major part of pc gaming. That they don't make all that much with the Bone after costs just lets a lot of us over here smirking.

I did find it funny that there were only 4 listed when 6 were promised and #3 & 4 headlines to me are the same thing.

Good luck finding a top tier phone for $329 that doesn't require a 2-year contract.

Right but to the email I was quoting it said good luck getting one, perhaps get one at a premium on ebay, then at that time I suggest then just buy another phone instead.

Also we don't always have to be the tippy top either:

Snowden can't realistically be pardoned, think of the floodgates it could open if he were? He's right in many ways and I'm sure several politico's even agree, but just cannot happen and it wouldn't happen anywhere.

But Petraeus can get away with it? He did it for a blowjob, and Snowden did because he loved his country, and Snowden is the one condemned? Shows just who's really running America and has been for a long time now. If they can murder Kennedy and pardon Nixon everything else is child's play.

Wasn't really trying to compare one vs another, just on Snowden's sitch. Yes we are fully aware many things are fucked up. One is a general on the right side of the fence the other was an IT contractor on the wrong side. Did Pet. release as many docs as Snowden? I'm not up to speed on how much damage Pet let out of the hat.

I'm fed up with developers sticking to what works and creating entry upon entry within each series. Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim; C&C Red Alert 3; Assassin's Creed 5 Unity; Fallout 4; Far Cry 4; Wolfenstein TNO (tho I did love The Old Blood); the list goes on. It's just like the rehashing of films from the 90s and 80s, it's not fresh material, it's just remaking the same thing I've already experienced.

The games which have delighted me the most in the last five years have been Faster Than Light, Alien Isolation, Trine 2 (coop, never played Trine 1), and Team Fortress 2. All have been fresh, exciting experiences for me that had me pining for more time to play them when I was out doing things.

Right. But that is the difference corporate games vs indies. I'm totally ok with whatever corp games do because we have indy games. That is where the new ideas are coming from and a fair price. Good times.

Steam was at 1 billion in... 2012, I believe? And they'd been having 30% year over year growth, so if that continues, it's easy to see they'd be right around the 2 billion dollar mark by now. of course, I'm not sure that that 30% sustained itself since there is a lot more competition now.

Even so, Steam is essentially just a money printing press.

Yes they made the right call. Make games or make a game selling client? The saw a need that should have been part of the O/S and put the whole company behind it, took time and a lot of bumps.

Looks to be a great phone for half the price of the competition!
Camera tests show that it beats the iPhone 6 and comes close to the LG G4 and Galaxy S6.

Unfortunately, due to high demand you have to receive an invite to purchase one.
Just add your name to this Reservation List and cross your fingers.
Or, you could always buy one in a few weeks on eBay at a premium price.

There comes a time when you start seeing these games in Matrix-vision, as spheres and cubes traversing above a checkered grid, with mountains of data rising and falling at the horizon.

The magic is gone, everyone is making games from the same limited templates, using the same abstractions. The walls and limitations of every game are absolutely the same.

I feel that, maybe not that strongly. It is why I hope VR can give us a nice change up. Indies is probably where most innovation is at today.

I don't agree with Walking Simulator.
