You hear that sound? That's Microsoft back pedaling furiously after being "nudged" by Intel, who are less than happy that MS fucked up the PC market...

Since Intel owns a good portion of Red Hat and makes most of its money from the enterprise market, I'm sure they couldn't give a fuck less about the PC market.

In fact, they care so little about it that they are ceasing design and production of desktop motherboards entirely.

...until MS gives me a compelling reason to upgrade...

For me, they did. RSAT. Want to remotely talk to a WinServer2012 box or cluster? You'll be needing Win8, whether you like it or not.

I have it, I use it on two desktops and one tablet. On the desktops, I am ambivalent about it. It's functional, does what I ask it to and very rarely gets in my way. The same could be said about Win7 for me. The Metro interface was not something I was used to but, after using my Surface since launch, I found the transition to be less than the total, mother raping nightmare that many others are making it out to be.

Could Win8 be better? Absolutely.
Could OS X be better? Absolutely.
Could KDE/GNOME be better? Absolutely.

However, ultimately, I can not defend Metro on the desktop. It doesn't make a whole lot of sense UNLESS you're a user who just uses their computer to use the web, an Office-like suite (if not Office itself), play casual games, answer email, Facebook, Tweet and watch Youtube videos. Then Metro makes sense, because it's all right in front of your face in easy to find and read tiles.

Just gives us an updated Privateer-style game with a living universe and the game will sell like gothcakes at a fat camp.

Grilling is so limited anyway. If it wasn't chefs would use it as their cooking medium of choice. I'll take a stove/oven over a grill any day of the week. Baking, roasting, braising, sauteing, frying, boiling, et al. are things you can't do - at least well, or efficiently - on a grill.

Or not.

Dishonored did Thief almost better than Thief did.

Oh Hell no. Dishonored is a pale imitation made by gibbering monkeys compared to the first two Thief titles.

I can respect that Dishonored is an homage but it isn't even in the same category. For example, what part of Dishonored had even a tenth the impact as Shalebridge Cradle? What faction in Dishonored as nearly as interesting as the Hammerites?

This "game", as they are currently doling it out, is also not a Thief game. It's wearing the title but it is wholly lacking the soul and feel of the Thief universe. Where, for example, are the taffer loving guards? Why are there no bear pits?

Why does "Garrett" sound like a bored, trust-funded manchild?

Yeah...Rasta Ninja.

No thanks, I'll pass.

It's not a game, it's just a show piece.

That's understood.

The xenoracist society I'm good with. But, even in nin's screenshot, it just looks like someone used the clone tool excessively.

Outside of the interactive NPCs, is there an explanation for why there are a total of, perhaps, seven models of NPC throughout the whole of the gameworld?

Generic Black Dude
Generic Black Chick
Generic Blonde Dude with Blue eyes (young)
Generic Blonde Dude with Blue eyes (slightly older)
Generic Blonde Chick with Blue eyes
Generic Auburn Chick with Brown eyes
Generic White Dude with Blue Eyes (Same as the slightly older blonde dude but with no hair).

Gotta say, that image before playing the video is really fucking cool.

Contrawise, I think it looks like shit and absolutely nothing like Garret or the world in which he exists.

Or were you saying you liked the image after stripping away the ridiculous idea that it should be part of Thief?

I am very cautiously optimistic. There is a lot about this game that interests me but, so far, this is all just eye candy.

Also, the old trailer had him inside a building while a party was going on. Or was that the very first trailer and you guys are referring to a second trailer that I did not see?

The opposite of love isn't hate, it's apathy.

I disagree. Apathy is the antithesis of motivation.

Both love and hate have the same core value, an intense interest. Ergo, both are two sides of the same coin even if they are polar opposites.

Just for btallas (so he'll have something to read in the morning and evening), here's a list of games nin luvs:

Bioshock Infinite

That nifty new pirate game!

Sleepin Dogs!

The original Bioshock

Dragon Age

Kerbal

Borderlands 2

This Kickstarter

All these kickstarters

Rawk Band

DN3D



While I agree with you, nin, on most of these, I have to vehemently disagree on Sleeping Dogs.

I bought it on your recommendation back when it came out...and I hated it. I thought it was a horrible game. The main character was uninteresting and the story presentation was like watching a spastic epileptic try to scramble eggs; messy and ultimately pointless.

Now, granted, I know I am in the minority but...yeah.

I *heart* STARWARS MMO!

Hows that?

Not nearly convincing enough! You have to call everyone else haters who bash your beloved game, and then tell them to get bent!


Antihater paradox...If you hate the haters, do you actually...love them?

There is a very thin line between love and hate. Also, I genuinely believe you have to have some core of love for a thing you hate passionately. Otherwise, why would anyone expend that much energy and effort?

It's fucking Jack Emmeret and Cryptic. The very queens of "No depth gameplay".

He's trying to lick EA's ass so he can get Yet Another Alice Game made, after he nearly burnt bridges with them awhile back...

Is it me or did the second one REALLY suck ass? I remember enjoying the first Alice game tremendously but the second one just felt like a half-completed mess.
