Spoken like a true loser.

I hope someone in your immediate family develops heart disease or cancer. If it's you, I hope that the cost of your health insurance causes your employer to terminate you. If it isn't, I hope the same for your family member. I hope that you have the rightness of being to step up and care for them. I hope that you have to learn how to make the choice between eating that week or paying for medications. I hope you have to learn what it's like to swallow your pride and go to a food pantry so that you'll have food for your children or your parents. I hope you enjoy the feeling you have inside where you feel worthless because you, as a man, can not provide for your family. I hope you enjoy the anxiety of wondering when, not if, your power will be turned off or your car will be repossessed because the cost of caring for yourself or a sick family member without insurance makes meeting all of your bills a impossibility, no matter how hard or long you work.

I hope this happens to you because it is the only way you will ever learn compassion for your fellow man. I hope that you learn that "I got mine, fuck you" is the absolute worst mindset to ever have when looking at another human being. I hope you grow out of being a selfish, ignorant, blind child and in to a man worth knowing. Most of all, I hope that when you need help...a man worth knowing is there to lend you a hand.

Outside of gaming, there isn't much that Windows offers me. For every day use, Mint with Libre Office, Amarok, VLC, Pidgin, and other apps works perfectly.

Neither of them hold a candle to the multiplayer fun in MC:LA.

That game was a blast with friends and drifting around corners at high speed felt perfect.

Volume location and identification is one of the most fundamental things blah blah

List out the volume numbers of your drives and partitions but only do it off the top of your head. If we're to replicate his experience then you can't use control panel to look it up.

Easily done:

S0,SDA1,P1,Volume 0 - System Reserved
S0,SDA1,P2,Volume 1, - Windows
S1,SDA2,P1,Volume 2, - Apps and Games
S2,SDA3,P1,Volume 3, - Media

I don't think there's anything fundamental here, nor is his "mind blown" by the term. His mind is blown that he's given two seemingly identical options that, even if it's a bug and they are identical, don't have a proper explanation. He knows what a volume is, he just does not know what volume 3 is. I don't think it's even slightly unreasonable to expect a user to know what different volumes are without giving any additional information.


Volume location and identification is one of the most fundamental things about an OS install, any OS, and how a bare drive is addressed. Not knowing that, regardless of options presented, is stupid. Especially from a "reviewer" who throws his bona fides out at the beginning of the article in an attempt to establish credibility.

If you want to pander to, and defend, idiots who want to treat their machines like toasters, that's fine. But don't try to pretend that a lack of knowledge is an acceptable default state. It's akin to saying "But I didn't know my car needed to have the oil changed!" You'd call anyone who said that an idiot and this guy is no different.

Too bad I can't run this on my old SGI O2 with IRIX 6. I really dig the IRIX desktop.

You mean this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:IRIX_desktop.png ?

I'm honestly not trolling but that looks like a weird mashup between OS 9 and GEM.

This was an incredibly stupid article. The author needs to stick with mobile devices if something as fundamental as a "volume" blows his mind.

Saints Row the third feels like a boring cardboard cutout of a city compared.

FTFU. As much as I love the SR series, I have never been able to finish SR3 because it's just so goddamned boring and stiff. 2 was the best so far in the SR franchise. Unfortunately, I don't think we're going to see another SR iteration.

But, you're right, even compared to itself the Third is a cardboard cutout.

The GTA formula is pretty stale these days. The series has been already been surpassed in terms of game mechanics by the likes of Just Cause 2, Saboteur, Prototype, Sleeping Dogs, Arkham City, Assassin's Creed, Red Faction Guerrilla and practically any other open-world game released in the past five years.

Rockstar needs to focus on quality and innovation in GTA5, rather than quantity. Having 1000 different things to do doesn't really mean much if those things are all shallow and forgettable.

Truth. Honestly, the formula was already stale with San Andreas when all the changes they made were a step back from Vice City. GTA4 was an exercise in tedium. I don't know why people find it appealing to follow on-screen instructions and then watch cut-scenes.

I agree with the both of you. I, also, don't get the love for the game. The physics were atrocious, the characters were either forgettable or so annoying that I would have killed them myself were it possible, the story was threadbare and done better before AND since in other titles and the world was just really bland.

In fact, in a lot of ways, I felt like GTA was trying, to some degree, to mimic Saints Row. Which is incredibly meta but still done poorly. The loud, jacked up steroid guy? The incredibly bad Russian mafia characters? That Patty McIrishStereotype guy? Saints Row's charm is that they deliberately caricaturized their entire world and everyone in it. GTAs world was just...clown shoes.

If a body likes it, I'm happy for them. I just don't get "why".

I did too! Such a fun game.
That and what was the other one... Startopia I think?

Yup, developed by Muckyfoot. Their first, last and only game. It works great under Windows XP if you have some fairly old hardware laying around.

Unfortunately, it absolutely will not play under Win 7 or on modern video cards.

Edit: They actually did three games. Urban Chaos, Startopia and Blade II.

No one likes to by flying down the road and then suddenly hit an obstacle and come to a complete stop. That's not fun.

I and about a literal million other racing sim fans vehemently disagree. The Simbin games, in particular, were brutally hard and immensely fun. There are plenty of kiddie arcade racers on consoles already. NFS, Forza, GT, Mario...to name just a handful.


Sliding "all around the track" is boring as Hell. Now, sliding around the corner of an old backwoods country dirt road by kicking the tail out is LOADS of fun...provided you know how to get the vehicle back in a straight line.

I miss playing games like GT Legends online with other people who knew how to actually drive instead of flailing around like a drunken, epileptic, retarded kid.

Oh, and Hotline Miami is downloading right now. I see Jaguar grabbed it - any comments? Thinking I will indulge this evening....

I don't get the attraction to 8 bit games. I've spent $1000s over the last 20 years trying to upgrade my hardware to get away from 8 bit graphics, so I feel no nostalgia to return. Can someone enlighten me?


Fun is fun regardless of the graphics.


Except if the graphics are a major distraction to an individual, then fun is not "fun regardless of graphics".

Semantics? Maybe but I generally tend to agree. Why pay for 8 bit graphics as a major point when you can download ROMs and emulators for free?

Except that it is in the desktop and enterprise environment. See, the biggest piece of the pie isn't in ULV procs. It's still in mainline procs.

Take, for example, Ford. Is Ford going to be buying more Dell/HP/Lenovo systems and servers or more iPads during their next upgrade cycle? Chances are, Ford isn't going to be spending a couple tens of millions worldwide on iPads.

That's where the anti-trust/monopoly suits come from. Not "Well, we have ARM and Snapdragon processors in mobile phones and tablets so it's totally cool for you to be the only producer of desktop and server processors."

It is in Intel's best interest to keep a competitor alive in every market segment. It's also cheaper than a lawsuit, too.
