Bone and VR? You can't handle it done right. You can't handle 1080P on a flat screen.

True, I don't see this working out very well. But they have to at least put it out there, because if the pc has VR and consoles don't, MS and Sony would lose licensing money to people jumping ship.

I see it as a ruse. Make a VR headset, even if its terrible. People will hear "VR is bad", and will believe the pc version is the same. Few people would research further than that, keeping most of their audience buying console games and thinking VR is failed tech.

Yep, I'll make sure to put some negative votes in for MS this March Madness.

I love the "worst company in America" brackets because people actually believe it means anything to be called the worst. Comcast is shit but rakes in billions every year. The same could be said of Activision, EA, AT&T and a whole raft of other corporations.

Shitty customer service? Shady business practices? Treat your employees like trash? Don't worry, none of your customers really care. You'll still rake in billions! Why would any of these companies stop their crappy behavior when it would actually cost them money to do so and eat into the massive profits they're making? "I know Comcast is the worst company in history and their CEO bathes in the blood of kittens, but I need my cable TV, so...."

They won't stop, same I won't stop saying the suck. Congrats on making a business people despise.

Bracket

Two top opening matches: Microsoft vs ATT and EA vs Time Warner. First one is just too close to call.

TThese start to slip once higher density buildings arrive. It's hard to pin down a flaw because it appears to burst at the seems - virtually everything starts to fail.

And they know this and just try to lie to us to get sales. It's broke and they still try to push it. Like who wouldn't buy Sim City and play it till you have a metropolis? Everyone, but they must hope you buy it, play it for a few hours and hope you put the product down with fond memories.

Since we aren't being paid more in general as a country. They are going to continue to have issues raising prices. That's what you get when you kill good jobs. We all lose, just give it time.

Played Gauntlet Legends with some friends endlessly. Was great fun plopping down on the couch and running through levels with each other.

I picture that is what playing D3 on a console today feels like and with even (gasp) more depth in D3.

I'd call this a Diablo clone if it wasn't for the fact that Diablo is a Gauntlet clone.

Right and it's going to have to better than the clones it has spurred and there have been many lately. Or priced about $10.

“I know that the internet is very sceptical that this is real. Hopefully less so now that Titanfall is out and they realize that they really are playing on these servers out there,” he said.

“There’s a lot of things we’re doing in this that’s really different from how any other game has done it before. In the traditional model of dedicated servers is you go to your server and that is your home base. One of the key things that is interesting about the Xbox Live Compute that runs on Azure is that they’ve commodotised servers so much, that we just don’t care.

“I can ask for a server, use it for 10 seconds, and then go like, ‘ah we don’t need it anymore’ and throw it out. We bounce people around server to server, and so you’re hitting a lot of different servers and that let’s us do cool things."


So Nelson says it is doing something for us, that it is not the normal thing (even though not all work the way he describes) and then does us a favor by going deep enough for a layman to understand and put all the skeptics to bed by say "hitting a lot of different servers and that let’s us do cool things", most specifically "Cool Things", the guy should have been a scientist. And finally he puts this all to rest, the cloud is amazing, as you can see because it does cool stuff. Still sounds like my CIO.

The banks aren’t afraid, however. Doug Johnson, VP for Risk Management Policy with the American Bankers Association says “XP is battle-hardened.” He continued, noting that “People will benefit from years of fine-tuning of XP… It has been through wars.”

This is a guy I don't want in charge of my RMP division. Why didn't they go with Unix to start with?

Worth a Buy slams it pretty well and still ends with a thumbs up. In his words he told us the truths. In his final, he pandered.

Speaking of space games, I usually post this or send it to Blue:

Josh's monthly update on Limit Theory.

Josh is finally getting satisfied with where the engine is at and is starting to work on ship design, UI, and gameplay elements.

Yeah this one is looking pretty special to.

Does ruining the game for others brings joy and happiness to the cheater?

Isn't it boring to just mow down players one after another?


1. Yes.
2. No.

Interesting

This is news? People don't think there are people out there that just love pwning others? Or if your thinking that is me, I'm just answering the questions as on what they get out of it. I hardly ever even play PvP games, coop'r mostly.
