I wrecked a 30" Samsung monitor because it had a retarded stand clamp such that if it was loose at all, it only needed a slight upward bump to free itself and flop forward. Even the high end stuff tends toward worthless stands. Certainly if I had toddlers bumbling around the house, I'd invest in a decent wall or arm mount regardless of the stand quality.
That's what I did when the kids were little. Now that they are older I've put it on the stand.

TV stands are like the coolers that come with processors; okay, but there are much better options.

What DangerDog said. They should really focus on a few very elemental issues like:

- Make keys rebindable goddammit
- Add multi GPU support - People with Crossfire or SLI are still SOL unless they disable one GPU
- Add TrackIR support
- Increase the default FoV of the hangar from the sickness inducing "585" to at least "75" or higher. I don't even want to know how many backers this project has pissed off so far because people were vomiting after two minutes in the hangar.
- Add at least some more basic graphics fidelity customization options. At the moment (without manually editing ini/cfg files) you can only change resolutions and set the game to 'Very High' or 'High' etc.
- Work on the shitty graphics quality of the hangar. The ship models look mostly fine but everything else in the hangar sucks. The lighting is way off, textures flicker due to a lack of AA and AF and so on and so on.

You know, polish what you have and don't dump new shit on the pile of old broken shit. Not a good recipe. One very famous game that failed because of this (among many other factors, of course) was Star Wars Galaxies where they kept dumping new content on top of a broken base game. Not good. Share this fate, you must not.
I hear your frustrations but polish by definition comes at the end of the process. There's no point in polishing something that may change drastically which you must then repolish.

I happen to totally agree with him, i guess i'm Cliffy too?

Actually, yes.

since when was stealing socially acceptable? the fuck? i mean, i do use torrentz if there's no demo or beta etc. but then i buy the game.
If you really believe stealing wasn't socially acceptable, you'd uninstall your torrent client, as you're supporting the torrenting infrastructure by using it, even if YOU actually buy the game (which I doubt you do in every single case).

imo if they just brought back shareware we'd not only have better games, but happier consumers. killing shareware was one of the most anti-consumer moves in pc gaming history.
Most games have demos, free weekends, etc. There's plenty of chance to try things out. And if you're an experienced gamer, you ought to be able to gauge a game from let's play vids.

Hmm, no OooB comment today. Two theories:

1. Menahem Golan was a relative of Blue's and he's in mourning.

2. A moment of silence for the civilian casualties of the Nagasaki bombing.

Given that they probably reduced salaries by a billion or so with their tactics, it's good that this offer got rejected. It's like stealing a Ferrari then getting a $10,000 fine.

Hey, it's the free-to-play model, only you have to buy the game first! Let me know how that works out for you!

A shame too. I love TD, and this looks right up my alley, but hell if I'll support this pricing model. This is a $15 game, which I'd gladly pay for.

Only a true Blizzard Fanboi would look at this game, mull it over and then proclaim "OH HEY! TOREN! TAUREN HAHAHA LAWSUIT"

It has nothing to do with being a fan boy, and everything to do with knowing how Blizzard operates. In fact, I've never even played WoW.

As for Studio Ghibli, they had a great run. The world is much richer for the stories they created.

Reading through the filing, it looks like the Angry Birds lady has a pretty good case.

Yeah, but the article is total click bait. She's not getting royalties for the re-use of her licensed trademark by Hartz to license Rovio Angry Birds likenesses. It's not like Rovio stole her designs, which is what the title implies.

They're just trying to fool judges that might not know anything about the industry. That article does a pretty good job of taking the TWC laywers down.

So I made my first meal in my new place. A meatball sub. Homemade marinara and meatballs, fresh moz. Good times. After a week or eating out it gets pretty tiresome - not to mention expensive - so it's nice to get back to the routine of a home cooked meal. If I had the dosh to eat out really well all the time it might be a different story. Thankfully there's a good vegetarian place not to far from me so at least I was able to eat pretty healthy for most of it.

I'm also tying one on tonight. First time in over a month since I've really done any real drinking either. Haven't even missed it, but today I got the itch now that most of the other stuff is out of the way.

Drunk post! Drunk post! Do it dude! Maybe in the SC thread?
