32 years old and retiring comfortably well off??? Yeah, I'm envious.

I wish him the best. It's still one of the better tech sites.

I play casually with a friend. Only VR3 and have been playing since early access. I'm in no rush to get to VR12. Just enjoying the journey.

I think if you play it too heavily to "get to level cap"... yeah you'll burn out on the PvE because it's pretty much the same shit as the other two factions.

In smaller doses... it's not bad at all. sort of like firing up skyrim for an hour every few days.

His ego helped kill off Looking Glass Studios.

Huh? WTF did he ever have to do with Looking Glass?
Other than Recruit Warren Spector for Deus Ex after Looking Glass already imploded?

Ehh.... on the one hand, beating him up for Daikatana nowadays is a bit dumb... he's more than paid the price for that "masterpiece". Freak

On the other hand, he really hasn't done anything of notice in the game industry since, and deserves all the skepticism that is being thrown at him.

That said... I hope he makes something decent.

Bought Metro 2033 on a Steam sale a few months ago... still haven't gotten around to playing it.

After watching the comparison video... not sure if I really give a shit about a minor graphics upgrade. Yeah, the redux version is nicer, especially the lighting... but I don't think the original version looks all that bad either.

It's too expensive, might as well just buy a convertible laptop. And if you just want a tablet to e-read and consume video on there are much cheaper options.

Windows RT was a huge mistake as well, guess they didn't learn anything from the failure of Windows NT for RISC systems.

This.

For the same money, I'd rather have a real ultrabook, or a better laptop with better battery life, than a tablet that comes with a shit detachable keyboard.

For quick internet surfing / youtubing... my 3 year old iPad does fine... and was much cheaper. (the irony of that is kind of funny since everyone likes to squawk about Apple's prices)

Haven't bought an Epic game since UT2003.

Other than the original Unreal and Unreal Tournament... I can't think of a game they made that was worth a shit.

So, regardless of Cliffy's douchebag PC comments from the past... he's got a lot more to prove than just changing his rhetoric.

I never cared for it. Was bored to death by level 10... trudged through level 40 something hoping it would get better, quit and never looked back.

That said... I'm still having a blast in ESO. I guess I'm a "niche" MMO player instead of a "for the masses" one.

They are thrilled to stick it to their previous creditors by bankrupting one company for protection and then forming another (then they can bankrupt that as well... perpetual credit).

Ok, I wasn't looking at the total... I was looking at the total each by comparison.

I stand corrected.

I don't think stupidity has as much to do with it as you imply...

I was joking.

Well, we found part of the minority... (should be 33% and 25% respectively)

Check your maths.
2 to 1 = 200% or 2/1
2 to 1 = for every 2 ps4's sold there was 1 xbone sold.

2 ps4s ... 1 xbone
4 ps4s ... 2 xbones
6 ps4s ... 3 xbones
7 ps4s ... 3.5 xbones
8 ps4s ... 4 xbones

For xbones... the number is 50%. (Half)
For PS4s... the number is 200% (Double)

3 to 1 = 300% or 3/1
3 to 1 = for every 3 ps4's sold there was 1 xbone sold.

3 ps4s ... 1 xbone
6 ps4s ... 2 xbones
9 ps4s ... 3 xbones
10 ps4s ... 3.3 xbones
11 ps4s ... 3.6 xbones
12 ps4s ... 4 xbones

For xbones... the number is 33%. (A Third)
For PS4s... the number is 300% (Triple)

I don't know why you all are surprised.

3:1 is what the pre-launch polls were showing worldwide, and 2:1 in the US.

It pretty much played out that way.
I guess that means 50% of us are stupid, while the rest of the world is only 33% stupid. Heh.

Watch_Dogs PC Patch (2014-07-29). Addresses stuttering.

Wasn't the PC supposed to be the lead platform when this thing was in early development?

Guess we know where that went.

Beyond that, you have a situation where device makers have to convince consumers that their new product is worth upgrading their old one for. When you have a situation where a decent-sized used market still exists for first-gen iPads (really), it's clear that the ability to convince people to move up, especially for the prices involved, is minimal.

Pretty much this. My tablet is over 3 years old and I have no real reason to upgrade it. It still does basic media consumption very well.

I'm not sure why her or her sisters and mother are even famous, let alone who would want a barbie dress-up app of that cow.

At least Jenner was famous for being in the olympics. But WTF have the Kardashians ever accomplished?
