From LP videos Titanfall looks pretty amazing. I get an adrenaline rush just watching it.

Hhmph. You work from home. In your PJs with the bunny footies I presume. I have an office to get to at 7. I usually get up at 5 and spend an hour in a coffee shop to relax and do a crossword or two. Now I'll be getting up at what's really still 4. DST is not my friend.

Not enjoying Archer Vice. I miss the old days at ISIS. I'm not even bothering to watch every episodes which is BLASPHEMY. I'm trying to figure out what made the ISIS seasons better than the Vice one and I'm having a hard time. It's the same characters doing and saying the same hilarious things. On the plus side, there's a lot more Pam.

I know the average computer user is stupid but I can't believe anyone who knows enough to prefer Firefox over IE doesn't know enough to install it themselves. I wonder how much money MS paid Dell to make IE the preferred browser?

Ah I see I am not the only one watching Gilligan's Island reruns on TVLand these days.
The episode where Maryann thinks she's Ginger is on my DVR waiting to be watched.

An egg cream is a beverage consisting of milk, and soda water as well as vanilla or chocolate syrup, and is especially associated with Brooklyn, home of its alleged inventor, late 19th-century candy store owner Louis Auster. Most modern versions of the drink contain neither eggs nor cream.
Mmm. That does sound tasty. Let me just ring for my servants. Oh Barclay ... be a chap and whip us up one of your egg crémes.

Totally disagree with you guys. I think a live action movie with the cubic landscape and creatures would be awesome. I'm thinking something like Tron. I really would have no interest in seeing yet another all cgi-movie.

Loved the Whole Foods article. Absolutely nailed it. I hate hate HATE WF with a passion. Mostly because it's so outrageously, needlessly expensive. The owner's politics is pretty awful, and just like the article says, it dangles pseudoscience in front of the elite educated masses and they lap it up like a dog on shit.

2 out of 3 paid for propaganda articles in one metaverse post, this is getting bad.
Both opinions in the second article are by libertarians. Certainly consistent with their philosophy: the government shouldn't legislate; let the magic finger of the free market sort things out. If you don't like what Comcast/Verizon is doing you can simply choose another ISP. Ha ha.

What a brutal few days. I don't post a lot but suddently I wanted to post all over the place and couldn't! Comments go down same week as a big Thief gameplay trailer, same week as Irrational bites the dust ... I was jonesin' to read some comments to see what I think about it all. If I didn't know better I'd say Blue staged these little outages to make us appreciate him more. Mission accomplished! Well played sir. Well played.

Maybe it will be an enjoyable game in the same vein as DX:IW and DX:HR - neither worthy of the Deus Ex name but enjoyable in their own right.

How dare you put IW and HR in the same category!

How dare you, sir?!
Really, I rather liked IW. Even more than HR. I know, unified ammo, micro-sized maps, annoying circular UI, but nonetheless some of the levels were damn good. Made you forget the flaws.

Then again I kinda sorta liked Daikatana too, so what do I know?

Thanks Sepharo. That doesn't surprise me about a TV where you sit much farther away than a monitor. It also occurred to me that 4Ks are often larger than normal HD monitors. I don't think 1080 would look so good on a larger screen, but from your experience with your friend's TV they might look as good or better than on a standard HD screen of the same size.

I've been very grumpy and pessimistic about this but the last trailer I saw gave me a glimmer of hope. Maybe it will be an enjoyable game in the same vein as DX:IW and DX:HR - neither worthy of the Deus Ex name but enjoyable in their own right. This won't be Thief but there could be worse things than a Dishonored clone.

PC Gaming > 4K monitors
1. 4K monitors Feb 3, 2014, 10:51 Ratty
 
I'm thinking about 4K monitors. When I got my latest PC I saved the monitor from my last PC but now I'm thinking of getting a new one. For some of the photographic work I do I could really benefit a lot from a 4K monitor, but I don't want it to impact my gaming. I'm not ready to invest in multiple graphics cards yet so I know I'm not going to be playing the latest games in 4K. Here's my question: since the vertical and horizontal resolutions are exactly twice standard HD, can I play games at 1920x1080 on a 4K and get the same quality as I get with my current standard HD monitor? Anyone have a 4K? Any gotchas I haven't thought about? Is it best to wait another year or so?

Microsoft may have wanted to push touch computing to the masses in Windows 8, but the reality is that users have voiced clear concerns over the interface on desktop PCs.
Bullshit. Microsoft wanted to push their tablets and phones to the masses and used their OS purely as a marketing tool to do so.

I think of all the LP channels I follow on Youtube I wouldn't be upset with a single one of them if they disclosed the game they were playing was sponsored. I already know they get paid for views and am behind them 100%. Some of them ask for sponsorship from their viewers and give shoutouts to those sponsors in their videos and that's actually clever and fun. I wish these contracts didn't preclude revealing they are being paid though. That's the only sucky part about the whole situation. I don't mind that companies have a non-disparaging clause. That makes total sense. I hope it doesn't extend to videos beyond the one being sponsored though. Like, do they say you can't say anything bad about XBox in any other video for 6 months or something like that?

I think Blue should have a sponsored article section. I'd click on those (as long as it doesn't mean an end to his snarky comments in other parts of the page!)

I made a meat sauce last weekend too. I have an OK quick 30-minute meat sauce I usually turn to but wanted to try a slow-cooked variety for the first time. Didn't turn out so well. The recipe involves browning the shit out of the meat - till it's almost crispy. But I think I ended up burning it a bit as it has a funny taste. So back to the drawing board for me.
