Even someone does like it, I'd challenge the practicality and ease of use in comparison to a long-used and familiar tool that already existed.

Well, it's all a bit subjective isn't it? Some people claim that command line tools are more practical and versatile than some graphical UI and that is because they know how to use it.

For example, I was excited when Microsoft announced a change in the UI. I am still extremely pleased with it! The result of this, I can't help but think, is that I was rather open to learning to use it and so I agree with the poster that you quoted: I find it to be a significantly faster OS to use than windows 7 (in the sense that I can access 'notes.txt' within my My Documents folder faster; I can't comment on milliseconds saved when opening said file), and I really liked W7. Is it perfect? Nope, and I wouldn't even claim W7 was perfect. Is it an improvement in my life over Windows 7? Yes.

But, I am reasonably suspicious of your disdain for W8 since, not only do you argue that YOU dislike it (the only reasonable stance) but you go further to try to 'objectively' prove that it is a worse OS. Even more distasteful is that you try to use YouTube videos to prove your point. There are YouTube videos suggesting that the end of the world is nigh, that people faked the moon launch, that the Illuminati rule the world, etc. YouTube is not an authoritative source

Anyways, if you could show me how many users of Windows 8 use programs like Start8 or Pokki, I'd be interested. For example, is it 80% of Win8 users using these startmenu replacements? Is it 50%? 10%? You don't know either.

Ultimately, in a world where I gave more shits, I'd ask why you are so angry over Windows 8. Perhaps you fear change on some deep level. I can't help but think: Get the fuck over it.

Oh god, I'm having flashbacks to Tabula Rasa.

Hellgate London's ads weren't bad...

Both of these games met their demise rather quickly, didn't they?

Additionally, anyone else agree that it is ironic that the only kinds of games that support advertisements are games about the future where advertisements are everywhere? If you think carefully for a moment, the only world where advertisements rule the world are worlds where advertisements sprung up in the past, probably through video games and other media. I.e. building games about a future full of advertisements leads us to the future full of advertisements!

That's like going through the trouble of installing a toilet in your house and then continuing to shit on the carpet.

You would shit on the carpet if you didn't have a toilet?

WTF ARE YOU SERIOUS! This is totally out of hand & truly shows how inept network security is. We have unqualified people & a sever lack of funding at these companies that they cant seem to secure their data. I can cut them some slack on the DDoS attacks but the previous intrusions are unacceptable. We need FAR MORE people trained & qualified in this country to start doing more network security.

YEAH! PEOPLE SUCK!

Seriously, why are you people acting like nutters? Guy gets my credit card number? Big fuckin' whoop. Enjoy that coke you might be able to buy.

What? You have more money than me? Your fuckin' problem.

This enlightened comment was brought to you by me. It doesn't necessarily express my opinion on the matter. I might just be fucking with you.

I wonder, could someone put together a YouTube video where the atrocious hitbox is demonstrated?

Also, what do you mean "random"? It's the same in 1.6 - You shoot the gun, and the bullet will land somewhere on the screen.

News Comments > Duke Begins Revealed
20. Re: Duke Begins Revealed Jun 23, 2009, 06:31 Brin
 
A good point is, they haven't released a Duke game in over 12 years (I am assuming), surely the market isn't the same as it was once. A whole new lot of twerps have replaced my age group. Do they even know who Duke Nukem is? Or is it a bunch of mid-twenties guys (like myself) looking for memory lane?
