It makes perfect sense in an EA way. The game needs to die when they need it too, but with dedicated servers they can't kill it as effectively. SWB2 comes out, they murder the matchmaking forcing people to switch.

Anyone tried this? Is it of reasonable quality? because holy shit, if the game-play is decent I'd be genuinely impressed.

The only fact you need for not installing windows 10 is that microsoft isn't a charity. Everything you need to know about windows 10 can be derived from that statement.

I don't know of 1 reason I should.

Well, it's far better under the hood than 7 is in pretty much every way. Also free but that's a second reason. This is all assuming you're not swallowing all the privacy FUD.

Absolutely right! I find Win7 slow as molasses compared to Win10--feel like I am mired in sludge--just updated the wife's machine from Win7x64 to Win10x64, and thought she'd bought a new box, the GUI was so much snappier!

These days there's a loony under every bed, practically. Must be, listening to the FUD and drivel being mindlessly shoveled between web sites. Some people are scared of their own shadows, seems like. There's not a single thing going on in Windows 10 that anyone has any reason at all to worry themselves over--but, hey, the conspiracy nut jobs abound!

The sheer stupidity is remarkable, really--and people say superstition is dead in the modern age! Ha...;) Not a chance...just replace wood sprites and fairies with the invisible "spies" supposedly found in every modern convenience and gadget--and you wind up with this wonderful "age of rationality" we live in...which is about as rational as crossing yourself and genuflecting before turning on your computer each day...;)

A powerful shill you are my friend.

"Telemetry is sent once per 5 minutes, to:

oca.telemetry.microsoft.com
oca.telemetry.microsoft.com.nsatc.net
sqm.telemetry.microsoft.com

This allows them to track you very accurately.

Typing the name of any popular movie into your local file search starts a telemetry process that indexes all media files on your computer and transmits them to:

df.telemetry.microsoft.com
reports.wes.df.telemetry.microsoft.com
cs1.wpc.v0cdn.net
vortex-sandbox.data.microsoft.com
pre.footprintpredict.com

This allows them to index any "unauthorized" content, and build a dossier on you that can be used in conjunction with their tracking data to stuff almost anyone in jail when needed.

This allows them to get a good layout of your home and surroundings, and a good look at YOU PERSONALLY so they know exactly who to go get and how to stage the attack when something you typed pissed them off.

If you insist on using North Korea on a CD, at least block those urls on a firewall and use one of these (or all of these):

But then again, if you don't mind being data-mined for everything you're worth and have no fear of microsoft blocking any software or hardware you have at their leisure, then just do it.

8ch can have some pretty disgusting users, but I didn't see anything illegal. Not sure why they're being banned.

I clicked on a few of the text links and got an eye full of cartoon kiddie porn and pictures of naked underage boys.

Funny how by trying to not bring attention to this "forum" they made even more people aware of its existence.

Removing sites like this just makes it go further underground, at least maybe with these pedos thinking their safe out in the open someone might be investigating them. They need to do more dragnet "to catch a predator" type sting operations, they were catching all sorts of interesting people with that show. One guy was a cancer research specialist, couldn't believe that actually happened but there he was with his mike's hard lemonade.

I'm a regular at 8chan /v/ and, as all anonymous boards, and twitter and reddit and bluesnews, it has its bad users. CP there is no more common than it is on reddit or twitter, or megaupload or whatever other uploading service and/or hard to moderate aggregator. 8chan abides by US law and, as stated in their FAQ, will work with the government to arrest the offenders.

And "cartoon kiddie porn", that's rich. It's not my thing, but comparing that to actual pedophilia is disingenuous at best.

The difference is that Reddit and Twitter are proactive and take steps towards banning child porn and its users. 8chan calls it freedom of speech and will drag its feet.

This is Google telling them to do something about it or no longer be part of their services.

They do not "drag their feet". They will ban anything illegal as quickly as it's reported. They are as proactive as twitter and reddit in that regard. And unlike those other two sites, freedom of speech is actually the most valued asset they have on the site.

But, when it comes to child porn, it isn't valued by Google.

And no, they do not delete as quickly as things are reported. It may be a staffing issue, but many have reported that things they flag will remain for months.

Google isn't having any of that. You want your freedom of speech to be your primary selling point, fine, but part of freedom of speech is accepting consequences of your speech, no?

Yes, they do delete it as quickly as reported, and the consequences are legally warranted by US law, are they not?

Then how come, rather than take it down, they simply make /hebe/ harder to find?

Seriously, go to /hebe/ and tell me you think that the free speech of that is more important than deleting that content.

All the content there is legal, therefore it's not to be dealt with. You want free speech beamer? Then it's gotta be free for everyone.

Also /hebe/ isn't harder to find, it's right there within the first top 20 boards. I'm thinking for some reason this part is hard for you to understand so I'll say it yet again: as long as it's not illegal, concerning US law, it is allowed.

They indeed do it as quickly as reported. That's the only stipulation under US law that's required. And it's right in their FAQ.

Deleting content under obscenity and definition of obscenity. For those that don't read it they state they have a 1hr turn around time for deleting illegal content, that's faster then FB or even twitter. NCMEC has a 48 hour turn around for notification and removing illegal content.
Content under DOST

The fact that they spell it out more clearly then facebook which has a serious CP problem, or twitter which also has a CP problem is laughable. But since they're 'big companies' they of course don't get their content removed.

So just remember, if you use FB or twitter going by the flappy headed idiots -- you're a pedophile. Because they also have illegal content on there. Then again sites like ARS really have a problem with 8ch(in turn 2ch and 2chan) because they're open free speech platforms, and they've been advocating censoring speech that hurts peoples feelings.

And I wasn't even going by the faq, it was by personal experience of over a year frequenting the board. Even on a thread I was posting the content was removed so quickly there wasn't even time for it to be displayed on my end. It was removed between the auto updates.

The combat could surely be improved but why does it suck?

It's console combat.

Button mashing doesn't work on Witcher 3, it's more likely to leave you dead just like in the second one.

The combats gets too easy when you outlevel the content by a significant margin. I remember doing quests 3 levels above my own and I had to use every trick in the witcher book to stay alive.

I particularly remember doing one where I had to kill 3 drowners that were 5 levels above me. The fight took 10 minutes, and at the end I was potionless, bleed almost to death, my good crossbow bolts all gone and feeling pretty great that I did it.

Fallout 3 is a shit Fallout game through and through, but I enjoyed it. And I too want to shoot people in the dick 30 times in slow motion as long as I can skip the retarded death animations when the blood-loss finally kills them.

My predictions for F4:
Story will be shit, because it's bethesda and they have a 100% track record on that. And so will be dialogues. The new conversation wheel will not help.

Exploration will be ok, I'm just hoping against hope they don't go the "looping around the cave" shit they did with skyrim. The fact that there was a conveniently placed door that cold only be opened at the end of the dungeon leading to the exit on almost every one of them may be convenient for the player, but that broke any immersion I had going.

The "wasteland" will not be a wasteland at all, and the setting will be misused as badly, if not worse, than it was in F3. It's not the 50s bethesda, it's the future as if imagined by people in the 50s.

You won't be able to disable cinematic kills in VATS for combat.

It'll still be a fun action game I'm sure, and I'll probably enjoy it.

That's a bad strawman you're trying to beat there buddy. Here's the description of the curator:
"To serve and protect. The Framerate Police is a curator that lets you know if a game is locked at 30fps. This list is purely objective and makes no judgements, merely presents facts. Did we make a mistake or are you a developer that's updated your game to run at 60fps or higher? You are welcome to post in the group discussion and we will correct our listings.
Oh and the name is a light-hearted, we won't be arresting anyone.... yet. "
But I guess reading is not your forte. so it kind of explains it.

I do agree it is a clusterfuck but so were other titles at early release.

No one gives a shit, stop making excuses for this shitty port that had to be pulled from the market.

My point is that you are shortsighted. My point is that if there was no refund policy, there was no pulling from the market. My point is that it's overexaggerated bullshit born from PC community vocal nutjobs, mostly, and a decision made in panic by a publisher due to the refund policy.

I believe -- and admit it's likely! -- that if the game was never pulled... A new patch or patches would have already been released, let alone the DLC.

Your statements contradict themselves. If it was a refund-based decision, it wasn't from a minority. That's not how corporations work. They probably had a crapload of refunds, and it hit their bottom-line. And that's how you make them dance.

Anyways, they deserve all the shit they get. Maybe next time they won't have trained monkeys do the port job.
