Is this where I quietly admit that I own a Surface and really, really like it?

CPU: Core i3/2.xghz (SandyBridge-2012)
RAM: 12gb DDR3/1600
Video: AMD Radeon 7770/2gb

How is that confusing?

Because Granny Smith/Mom Smith has no idea what the fuck any of that means when they are buying games for little Billy. In fact, the people who actually know the specifics of their machines are a very, very small margin in the worldwide computer ownership numbers. Most people will say "It has Windows" or "It's a Dell"...because all they know are name brands.

Ergo, this, and any, attempt at a technical standard will fall flat on its face.

We had this years ago when I first entered the hardware engineering field, it was called the MPC Standard and it also had levels.

It fell by the wayside then and it will do so now. Manufacturers don't give a rat's ass about maintaining a standard when they can coerce encourage you to buy their name brand over and over.

...I just prefer if what they did was less what they do now and more of what some written books do, challenging people's fixes beliefs.

When challenging people's fixed beliefs doesn't involve risking 20-100 million dollars, risk angering shareholders, risk angering distribution partners and risk, more importantly, angering your fickle customer base who gives you billions of dollars every year, then you'll see games become sociological reform platforms.

Granted, I am sure someone can dig up an indie game somewhere that does this, but that doesn't grab the attention or sales that Call of Black Halo Duty Ops XLVI: War Gear Edition does. Such is the nature of the business and no one is going to change that business so long as it IS a business.

Yeah, sure, because the demographic who plays Simcity gives a shit about the "standings" of the guy in the next town over.

What's with all forced attempts at hypercompetivity lately in areas that just aren't competitive by nature? Next, I expect supermarkets to let me know who's the fastest at getting the TP from the shelf to the cart. Who actually gives a fuck?

Stick to Acronis or Ghost.

Ghost sucks cock. Try Clonezilla. Free and works amazingly well. We use it here to reimage hundreds of machines at a pop.

It's not like any guy needs more than 5 or 10 minutes of the stuff at a time anyway.

Not true! Sometimes it's fun to sit with one's girl and MST3K the shit out of porn and laugh like loons whilst you do it.

It can't be any better than Kerbal Space Program. That game is amazing! I've put in well over a thousand hours into it! Many kerbals have died to bring you this information.

www.kerbalspaceprogram.com

+Eleventy bajillion

KSP is an amazing, fun game with a great, helpful community and a very mod friendly development team. I have taken my Kerbals to the outer planet, landed upon it, strutted around and returned home safely. It was the one hardest things I've ever done in a game and also one of the most satisfying.

Better than anything.

Get out more. I can name dozens of things better than clicking a mouse button in a campfest, and I enjoy the shit out of gaming.

I literally JUST bought it because it was $19.99. I have heard good things recently about it. Besides, it's only twenty bucks.

I played the one before Assault Horizon on the 360 and while I enjoyed the game, DEAR LORD the voice work/story is horrendous. Not as bad as Flashpoint/ARMA bad, but you could build a log cabin it's so wooden.

Go dance with the angels!

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.
