Oh, I know it doesn't, that's why I'm asking him to backup his bullshit.

To be fair he said "Sounds like there is a system in place" and based on what Virge described it does sound like that. I don't think there is one but that's the appearance being given. Kind harsh to call speculation "bullshit", he may be shooting the shit but not bullshitting

in some games it has a habit of getting those shooting geometry rays graphical corruption. Dunno what it's deal is but I had the same issue with my last card.

Usually I'd say overheating. Does it take a while before it starts happening?

I've checked the temperatures, they seem in to be well within normal ranges. It seems to be pretty random, sometimes it's right away other times it won't happen at all. It's definitely corruption on specific memory location because the artifacts will only occur on specific geometry in the game. If I look away from that spot everything is fine. This is really noticeable when playing City Skylines. Some random intersection or building will start doing this and will give me a little light show even when rotating the camera as long as it's on the screen... but if I pan away from that the rest of the city is fine. Never happens in CS:GO or other games but then I'll play another FPS and there it again, blasting off of some random point in the map or maybe a piece of the HUD. I get it in Civ 5 occasionally too.

Looks like Blue got the news weird.
The announcement was that it is now a full release, no longer early access.

Probably because he was chompin at the bit (of bread) to get that pun in.

Nah, the headline on Steam News is pretty clear, if wrong:

Now Available on Steam Early Access - I am Bread, 25% off!

On you're right of course. I was reading it from on the product page which says Full Release.

Hey looks like they fixed it on their end too now

I have a 7970. It should be up to the task for this and GTAV but in some games it has a habit of getting those shooting geometry rays graphical corruption. Dunno what it's deal is but I had the same issue with my last card. If it pulls that shit on Witcher 3 or GTAV I'm kicking it to the curb and going to Nvidia for the first time since the Ti4200.

The steam version launches the rockstar client, it does not download through steam. I do not believe you can back it up on steam either.

My preload was definitely done through Steam.

Maybe at the end of this one, they'll do a timeline reboot and start the next series of games off in WW2 again! I mean, time travel isn't so far fetched in this series anymore.

Hey Treyarch how about Call of Duty 3-2 huh? Criminally underrated CoD in my opinion. But hey, robots and explosions!

A fish-out-of-water narrative where either a WW2 soldier is transported to modern warfare or a modern soldier is transported to WW2 could actually be kind of neat.

Jesus they really need to start packing these on blurays (for PCs).
Yeah cuase we all have bluray roms.

I know that, but they are default on consoles now. The PC market/industry needs to make them as affordable and common on PC as DVD drives have been forever. I have a bluray drive on my PC, but have only used it a couple times with the VLC player process for movie playback. On top of that, on PCs (and by extension Microsoft specifically) they deliberately decided not to include playback and made them so you have to buy third party software to even play anything with it due to 'licensed tech' bullshit. They've gotta do something about it eventually as games have become enormous. Its less an issue for consoles, since they can simply pack the games on blurays.
I didn't realize the price for a PC BRD had fallen to $40. Might have to pick one up...

They've been pretty cheap for a long time. I remember back in 2007 everyone was saying the PS3 was a good deal just for the "cheap" bluray player. My college roommate and I split a combination HDDVD/BluRay drive that cost $150 for our living room PC and were like, "What's cheap about a $500 dollar bluray player?"

The preload seems to be about 53GB not 60. Because I had 63GB on the drive and after finishing the preload I still have 10 left over.

Don't forget your GTA 5 preload is no available. And it's a 60 gig DL. I can't believe these guys didn't compress this shit.

Just cleared up 60GB on the SSD. Had to part with a bunch of games that I kept saying, "But I might want to eventually play this..."
Who am I kidding, if I'm not playing them now I'm definitely not playing them once GTAV and the Witcher 3 are out.

Weird...

My only guess is that Amazon wants it for a VR project in its skunkworks. Amazon, Google, Facebook, Microsoft, and Apple want to compete with each other in every facet of tech so when one jumps the rest follow. Drones? Sky WiFi? Car AI? Tablets? etc etc.

Amazon does own game development studios...

I know, right? Did anybody RTFA?

An impressive one with some big names.

Hey Amazon owns game studios, they picked up lots of talent lately, I read the article...
None of these things are mutually exclusive with my speculation over Amazon having a VR project in their skunkworks.

tl;dr: bronies are a bunch of poorly adjusted adults and/or perverts.

I don't care if that offends, bronies are fuckin creepy. I remember taking our little one when she was 4 to a local promo event involving My Little Pony. There were some weird fuckin fat sweaty dude there by himself just staring at the kids, I wanted to beat the shit out of him but thankfully security eventually had a few quiet words with him and he left.

That must have been pretty early on... I'd assume the entirety of those events are those guys now.

You guys are right. The final for Black Sails was awesome! Sucks we have to wait a friggin' year for next season. I hate how they schedule TV shows like that. Well at least we have a few more eps of Vikings to go and GoT otw in 2 weeks.

Yeah I'm constantly amazed at how much high quality action that show packs in. I hope Flint and Vane's crews stick together for a bit and just don't immediately go to shit like they probably will. Max and Rackham are going to have to pay every pirate on that island to have a big enough force to stop those two crews and a manowar.

Okay, I admit it -- I exaggerated my position. You are, of course, correct. Many people have been successfully treated by talk therapy and by medication. However, professional psychiatric opinions on even a specific case can vary widely, much more so than with other medical situations. And with an uncooperative patient, they are impossible.

It seems like you're conflating psychology and psychiatry which is pretty common and the professions themselves have some overlap. A crude contrast would be to say that psychologists are the ones with the talking and the couch and psychiatrists are the ones prescribing medicine.

As much as I hate the term, it is a "slippery slope" problem. People certainly threaten violence without any intention of ever carrying it out. And I don't have much confidence in psychiatry, it is one step above voodoo as far as I am concerned, about equal with economics.

Even if you made some specific exception in the law for commercial pilots -- it would just keep the pilots from ever seeking help. So, a problem that might be easily treatable goes untreated. I'm not sure there is a reasonable, valid solution.

Uh these videos are running in 1080P!!!!!! What the fuck man?!!!

You have to change the resolution to get the 4K version. I wonder if anyone who says it ran fine did that? Though maybe... the second time I tried it I made more of an effort to close other processes and it ran a lot better, and I know some of you have some serious machines.

I was unable to run the 4K without constant stuttering but the 1440 was smooth. On past machines the 1440 was undoable as well.

I have an Asus 7970. Seems like it should be good on the 4K. Maybe something else is holding it back.
