I had to clean out a PC that had a bunch of mice living in it one time. Hanta virus was on my mind the whole time.

Gaming media corrupt? But the SJW's are telling us we are all imagining it.. ;p
Hah no doubt. You catch the thread on /. about elen pao? Lot of swj backlash going on, looks like people in the tech sector are also having enough of this BS.

EA worker on EA website says working at EA is great?
To be fair, one of my friends works for Ubisoft, and through the grapevine EA isn't as bad as it was even 15 years ago especially when you look at their history with things like the vancouver site. It looks like they actually are trying to fix their image.

Are they? I've been ignoring them forever but lately I'm hearing kind of good or at least decent things so I could believe it.

News Comments > Pillars of Eternity Support; Patch Next Week
17. Re: Pillars of Eternity Support; Patch Next Week Mar 28, 2015, 03:26 Silicon Avatar
 
Fun game so far. I see some typos. They'll get fixed.

My party already wiped. I didn't even get out of the first dungeon. I made a mistake and let my curiosity take hold. Then I got dumb. Old school rules in place, I see. I deserved to get waxed.

After playing so many carebear RPGs I forgot all my old dungeon running paranoia.

Where's my ten foot pole...

My SteelSeries mouse has been fine, but I'll never use their drivers again. They released a version that completely trashed my Windows 8 install (as in: made it unbootable - requiring me to do many hours of recovery).

They released a fix, but the damage was done.

I'll avoid that brand in future.

Seriously. Asteroids is not exactly rich on lore.

Rich on ore maybe.

This should really be the standard return policy for every software vendor.

I don't think most people will use the return policy as a rental service (and it should be easy to see who is doing that and ban them anyway).

Good for GOG. Maybe I'll throw my purchases over there instead of Steam. I lose nothing hedging my bets..

The last big arcade I went to had full-motion mech pods and it was a blast. The downside is they wanted like 4 or 5 bucks a go and it lasted maybe 5 minutes.

That was ages ago. Now the only arcade games I see are retro / forgotten cabinets that nobody ever really bothered to unplug.

I guess the apps probably didn't violate any rule so they went through. Maybe the rules got revised to close the loop on what is basically a scam.

If the app store was full of viruses the media would be screaming and Apple fans would be the ones screaming loudest, followed by security experts.

There doesn't seem like much to pick on here.

It'll probably just end up being used on Windows 10 mobile stuff - cells and tablets. If you want to hack those there'll be a million alternatives.

HL3 has taken so long to come out that I've become indifferent to it. If it comes out, fine. If it doesn't, whatever.

I don't really care what secret sauce Valve is coy about working on now because they've kind of become a bore about it.

I do.

I like it and I'm still playing it.

I just wish I had more time to actually play.

Looks pretty cool, but I seem to remember something about the first one that made me not buy it. Like users were saying the guy never really finished it or something.

Yeah, really. Wasteland 2 is supposed to come up with a toolset and it was built in Unity. I haven't heard them gripe about Unity any.

I didn't even know there was a Kickstarter. I probably would have paid in. I remember Crystal Quest.

I'm really surprised it hasn't been cloned a million times already though. It is not that complicated of a game.

It was always all bullshit.

The goal was to have fun and if people are having fun with LOL leagues good for them.

That's all. It's just about fun and different things people do to have fun.

If you're mad that the genre you like to have fun in has changed so much that it's not recognizable anymore, take that anger to the indie pool so somebody can pick up on it and remake the genre with old school roots. Somebody would probably love to make a living supporting some niche like that - if you're willing to pay.

Honestly I won't be looking at graphics card or PC rig updates until close to Fallout 4 release time. That's the only game I'd bother updating for over the next couple of years.

AMD's next GPU should be called Attack on Titan.
