My guess? Ran a spell and grammar checker over it and "called it done." And I'll also guess that they skipped over reading-it-backwards, to see if the article made sense.

Damn. I'm pretty sure Phil Fish is an asshole, and I've had a pretty negative opinion of him, but the knuckle-draggers in here are actually kinda pushing me to side with him just so I don't have to feel like I'm lumped in with the mouth-breathing gaming public.

Y'all need to chill.
I'm guessing you don't live in Canada, if you did you'd hate him just on the basis that he's from Quebec and has Quebecker entitlement syndrome engraved in his DNA. No, what Fish needs to do is grow up and learn that outside of his safety bubble that "things happen, and actions have consequences." This is something that's oblivious to most people from that province. It's also oblivious to various people in large metro cities in Ontario.

Hell, even Urban Dictionary defines "social justice warrior" as a pejorative term.

That's nice, Urban dictionary is about as trustworthy and CNN in terms of definitions and facts. But if you're not paying attention to the sjw's, that's tough being that they do call themselves that. Unless of course you're implying that they're "putting themselves down" on purpose.

So you understand the meaning but still choose to use it in a perojative manner, and your position is that National Socialism emerged as a solution to Marxism-Leninism. Wow...just Wow. Doge doesnt have this much Wow.
So let's see, an individual calls themselves thus, therefore it's a pejorative manner. Makes perfect since, in the land of political correctness. And I'm guessing you're not a student of history, not even in passing; otherwise you'd have figured that out.

Considering quinn doxxed herself as seen by the doxxed info, I wouldn't put it past him to have done the same thing. The guy whines, bitches and moans whenever someone sneezes in his direction.

I've only ever heard that term used by super conservative misogynist people like you.
Oh? Strange that I've heard it being used quite a bit by various people who lean heavily into misandry. Perhaps you need to get out more.

InBlack wrote on Aug 22, 2014, 03:21:

There is nothing wrong with the term. Its actually quite a compliment, something that Mashiki or Mad Max can't seem to grasp. There is nothing wrong with fighting for social justice, whether on the left or on the right, as a matter of fact it's even something that the extreme right claims (as perverted as it sounds) as its own (See: National Socialism...)
Strange, I seem to "get" the term just fine, see point: Where I said that's where they called themselves thus. Perhaps you're just not paying attention. Here's the difference between "fighting for social justice" and "being a sjw" the first is doing something active. The second is sitting at their keyboard, blotting out twitter posts, and whining about the perceived injustices. In many cases "first world problems," you'll note quickly that the sjw's aren't ready to get their hands dirty on something, nor will they decry anything that might be construed as bigoted, let alone racist.

Of course, your quip about national socialism is fun. Just remember that "national socialism" in that particular context, was the solution to "Leninism-marxism" not being quite right.

Exactly, they literally use that label for themselves. Who fucking cares anyway? Plenty of damning shit to discuss here and he focuses on that.
Yep. Well the shit keeps on flowing with this, apparently 4chan has gotten wind that large numbers of mod were replaced with "sjw types" due to this and the ensuing shitstorm has grown even larger. Whether or not it's true to them, doesn't seem to matter but the 1000 headed hydra which normally calls itself faggot at every turn seems to be getting even more pissed off. And as it stands there's a 97+ page thread on the escapist. With and by far, the large majority of people calling out Tito and others for failing to do any form of investigative journalism into this.

This isn't dying by any stretch, especially since zoe's fake dmca claim on youtube seems to be pissing people off even more.

It probably has something to do with Kotaku being a bunch of fucking hypocrites, like most "social justice warriors" hiding on the internet.
Sounds about right, since kotaku is owned by gawker, and thir shit, is shit with sjw's spewing crap.

Looking at all of this though, you know you've pretty much screwed up when you've got 4chan, reddit, and tumblr all pissed at you.

They're not even giving a copy to PC Gamer? I thought that's a guaranteed 95%+? Definitely a threat to game reviewers everywhere.
This pretty much screams that the game is either really unpolished, or a huge mess. My sister was looking forward to this game until this stuff started coming out, then she decided to cancel her pre-order and stick with Sims3 until "all the shit falls out."

What a world. People now pay $110+ to beta test games for developers. Wonder if I can find anyone to beta test my yard and pay me to cut my grass.
Really, you can get into the beta now if you bought any version under the $100. It just costs $25.

Redmask wrote on Aug 17, 2014, 00:18:
I shaved 4 seconds off my boot time moving between identical hardware, yes that is slight. You posted nothing at all specific about which apps were suddenly compatible nor what 'crash prone' elements about Windows 7 were fixed in 8. Most people who claim they know what's 'under the hood' just cite vague sources because they don't actually have a clue and are just blindly trusting articles they read.

There's nothing really wrong with 8 other than Metro but claiming its anything but a slight improvement over 7 is disingenuous. Nothing wrong with slight improvements either but they aren't worth upgrading for if you're already running 7 and happy with it. For newer builds well, those people don't have a choice anymore.

So your limited view makes that the correct one? Gotcha, I should find the boot times measurement that MS published a few months ago on average people had a 48% decrease in boot times. And really you posted nothing specific either, so if you want to play that game I can as well. Oh, as for people who don't know what they're talking about, let's start with the boot issue and why. See it's not a hybrid boot, unlike the old way of booting. It keeps the "kernel session" active, which guts the total boot time. Leaving the unique user session to be loaded out of the profile. Oh and following with that, shall we look at why WDM made such an impact after the original release in 1.0 and why in the 1.2 and 1.3 implementations it also helped speed up boot time?

But, slight? Not really. If it was only a "slight" upgrade, then you wouldn't see the gutting of the bloatware out of oh say the kernel itself. Notice the trend in 'nix land? You know where the pre-built kernel is now full of useless bloat, causing increasingly longer startup times. And we're just starting with the security stuff.

Oh and win7 is still available at retail, and online, and from MS. Though in the case of MS, you need to contact them by phone or via email to buy it.

I wouldn't go that far. Windows 8 boots slightly faster than Windows 7, almost imperceptibly so on an SSD. That is mainly due to the fact that Windows 8 doesn't actually do a hard reboot in many circumstances. It is not 'more compatible' than Windows 7 and is no more or less stable. Windows 8 is a slight improvement over Windows 7, so slight that many people would never know the difference. If you're building new then sure get Windows 8.1, not like you have a choice anymore. If you have Windows 7 don't bother with Windows 8, wait for 9.

There is just something amusing about supporting Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 but not Windows 8.

You mean going from ~15-30sec to ~6.5-9sec on exactly the same build, the whole difference being the OS is "slight?" It's not more compatible? You mean apps that would refuse to run under 7 even with excessive tinkering, but work fine under 8? It's not more stable, but that's why even under poorer hardware that was crash prone under 7, the same doesn't happen with 8? Sadly, most people who "don't know the difference" are the same people who "don't know how to look at things under the hood."

Spies come from all stripes, from inside government agencies to people on the street. So, it will work against some...just not all. And anything you can do to increase the SNR, and slow down the "other guys" security apparatus is perfectly fine.

You should just upgrade to Windows 7 instead.
Yeah, don't worry there bro. 8 and 8.1 are leagues ahead of 7 in terms of compatibility, stability and boot time. The only downside to it was metro, which is easily fixed.

saluk wrote on Aug 16, 2014, 16:10:
I haven't upgraded because the 2 times I have tried have left my system unbootable. 8.1 was rushed. I've never had as much trouble or gone through as many hoops trying to upgrade as I have with 8.1 - and that includes upgrading vista to windows 7 and upgrading windows 7 to 8 (on another machine).

So the "silliness" as you say isn't just partly on microsoft's fault. I lay all the blame there.
If you're getting an unbootable system under 8.1 then the problem is almost certainly on your end. And it will almost be laid right in the lap of a driver misbehaving. $20 says if you grab the straight 8.1 iso, and do a clean install it'll be just fine, and if that's the case then just migrate everything from 8 to 8.1 with the migration tool and go on your way.

Anyway, these drivers are actually much better than the previous RC's that were put out. Only downside is they have serious problems with flash+firefox and hardware acceleration on my rig, w/7950. Turning hardware acceleration off and everything is good. Otherwise I'm seeing bloody BSOD's with them.

edit: some type of clarity, pain killer induced writing is a pain.

It does look too good to be true, what's the budget for this game anyway?
Depends on the site you're looking at, but anywhere between 20-40m. The Witcher 2 was around ~10-15m if I remember right, USD of course. Though there's a blurb on CB that Witcher3 has only cost ~7m in expenses so far.
