heh. It could hit 9.4 by next year! Whoo?

What's funny is it actually has a higher market share than vista over the same time period. Besides the fundamental UI problem, the guts are better in 8/8.1 as long as nothing you either use, or make has a problem with it. Sadly my dev copy of gamemaker pro has some serious issues, especially with the way the sound drivers were fsked around with, causing it to crash. Sadly I'm not the only one with that problem, lot of JP blogs report the same issue, and there's no fix down the pipe.

Obamacare. Doesn't work on the web worth a crap, and won't work in execution. You think 7.5 million healthy young are going to choose to get covered? hilarious, Obama knew that answer too.

Next step single payer MORE govt or repeal.
Don't worry a lot of the public are going to lose the insurance they had in the first place. Last count was 80-100m people, seems like a brilliant idea. My buddy in Alaska saw his premium jump 680%, and his sister in Flordia along with her hubby saw theirs jump 1240%. Yep, brillllllllliant!

If healthcare.gov is fixed(for the vast majority), then I'm sure it's alllllll true. Never mind that every story, report, and article since it was "fixed" still screams "it's broken."

Saw that - came close to pulling the trigger, but I have no idea when I'd get around to playing it. Too much other stuff right now...

Yeah same here, I think I'll wait for the christmas type sales, got 30 odd games in the backlog to play, and a bunch from last year I haven't yet finished.

How exactly are you going to enforce a ban on 3D gun printing?
By shaking their fist at it? Remember Chicago banned private gun ownership...and see how that turned out.

Derp. I am running them. Are you implying AMD/ATI does not have driver issues? Now that is a laugh.

The only one who's implied that AMD/ATI doesn't have driver issues so far is you. So feel free to laugh on that, much like your post of nonsense about "no recent drivers" which was also incorrect.

But hey, you want to run to nvidia that's your own choice. I bailed 2ish months ago from nvidia to amd because of horrendous driver issues that have been on-going since 293. My personal favorite was the 310's I believe it was causing hardlocks across all 400, 500, and 600 series cards.

Are you using a US address, Mash? That's what I'm doing.
Yeah, I'm using my address for my place in Florida(Zephyrhills) and it won't work. Gives me a "unable to purchase" type nonsense. Which is fsked up, because when I'm in the US and I want something shipped there, it works just fine.

Got a first and second generation OCZ drive, and both are still working along just fine. Apparently anything after about 2nd gen could be iffy as anything. So I guess I lucked out in two areas, one where I got them cheap(paid $0.88/gb) and second I haven't had any problems.

Congrats Double Fine, but why would you release them at retail, when you have Steam, GoG, GMG and Origin?
Because not everyone has broadband still, or some people it's prohibitively expensive still to use broadband. An example: 12GB/mo costs me $120 right now(northern alberta), because there are no DSL ports available, and no cable over internet here.

Strong reservations on this. I get a feeling it'll turn into another metacrtic fast, where people bash for the sake of bashing.

Oddly it's those good memories that make me want to go back and play, the sad side is no one I used to play with, raid with, or dungeon crawl with play anymore. They've quit or moved on. It was a hell of a game though, probably one of my favorite memories was our guilds 2min rag kill, when we were just smashing our head on BWL, we decided to go back and have one go at him.

Pretty damn steep at $5.99 for each game considering how old they are. Though $2.99 is reasonable.

Beamer wrote on Nov 19, 2013, 11:01:

When it comes to discussions about non-white-cismales around here, all of the above tends to come out. It isn't worth getting into, for the most part, because some people have their minds made up that men are superior and just better at things like running companies, writing code, and playing video games, even though women are now outscoring men significantly in math and science, and totally ignoring any kind of societal issues that make this more true than biological ones.

Don't get used to what we've got, guys. In 20 years, when all the female math and science majors are becoming executives, this dominance in these areas will start rapidly withdrawing.
Yeah that's nice, except when you live in a politically correct universe and see the hand holding that goes on for the "under privileged" and all that. My sister used to joke that being female with a disability would get her anything she wanted. Until she got hired by the federal government, and it's exactly that. She's not even closely held to the standard that white males are held to. Hell, even I'm not held to the same standards. Some people expect more, others far less because I'm a minority.

But don't forget either that in those "math and science" courses that hand holding continues. I've seen it myself, and I was back in college not even 4 years ago. It's gotten far worse, never before in my life have I seen so many "second, third, and fourth" chances along with "helpful tips" that were selectively given out, or *insert group only* to help.

In the end, I have no problem if someone rises up based on merit. But right now in society, we've got a whole pile of people who've risen up, and are rising up based on gender, sexual orientation, and *insert minority group.*

"dozens of hours" of gameplay? ok then... I am going to back away real slow.. tell tale sign of a half arsed, amateur or/and incomplete game.
I have to ask, did you bitch and moan about Skyrim? After all the main quest is only about 10 hours long. Never mind that I put in just under 180 hours on my first playthrough before I started it. Nice thing about sandbox games, nothing forces you to do more or less than you want.

Sadly it's going to be until the 27th that I get a chance to play. Feking internet is 15GB capped, and I just blew most of it downloading the update for Xcom. But, I finally, finally get DSL out here after trying for a month. Wee!
