This is one of the people you want to be the public face of Gamergate?

How is someone with budget failures the public face of gamergate? Also, how is someone like him the public face in a leaderless movement in the first place? Remember, in a leaderless movement ideas, opinions, and so on live or die by merit. Something that's anathema of the anti-gg people(if you really want to see how bad the anti-meritocracy has become look at what happened to github).

How about fixing the fucking refresh rate issue already?
What's the problem with refresh? I haven't seen any such problem on either my nvidia or amd cards.

I'm mostly referring to the trolling, the threats going back and forth, mostly stuff on twitter. I think Brianna Wu is displaying vitriol, but it pisses me off that asshats troll her with death threats- she is practically a martyr now. Wardell get death threats quite often, he engages his 'attackers' on twitter and seems to keep a level head.
Really Wu created they're victim storm for trolls by simply doing what they're doing. It's like a target rich environment, and of course they attracted even more trolls when they tried to say that GG was going to use nerve gas at PAX. Never mind that it was a anti-gg person who said so.

Is Brad Wardell of Stardock a big name ceo/dev? He's about as pro GG As you get, just without the vitriol.

Depends on your PoV, but I think he's come out as anti-anti-GG as well. Many of his posts though resonate with what GG is though, in turn it gets a lot of play in the various channels. I'm curious on what vitriol though and from who.

Why? I have no idea who Mark Kern is. I'm going to do my own research but I'm interested in your view on it.
He was basically the lead designer for most of the beloved blizzard games out there. Vanilla WoW, D2/LOD, SC and so on.

Red Neck trucker says NO to this blonde trying to merge...

"Whut the he-il?"

Car had it coming, but him being on the phone isn't helping matters any.

Considering it's a dash cam, I can't figure out where you think he's being on the phone has to play. Since I can't see where you're getting that from. Also, if you've driven or been in a rig, that's one of those huge fucking blindspots where cars go missing, which is one of the reasons if you notice many have a fish-eye mirror in that area. You can't see shit, your passenger might, but you probably won't until you hit the stupid retard at the last minute or they're trying to "force their way in."

I had more CTDs in Skyrim than in any other game I've ever played, by orders of magnitude.
Really? Seems to be outside the norm for me, after the patches and when SKSE finally hit a stable stage the game stability improved immensely. My last play through was 208 hours, and I would get a crash maybe every 6-8 hours during a hardcore play session. And that was with 208 mods loaded. Not merged. The biggest thing that effects stability are mods not playing properly with memory management and anything that improves textures, especially with a poor/bad ugrid configuration.

But you did basic things like run TES5edit to remove dirty edits and so on right? Checked to make sure that the mods you're using are clean and watched script heavy mods right?

Anyway, for people saying "but i wants UE4 or something else..." yeah, we'll just gut the modding right out of the game right? Something that adds immensely to the quality, and re-playability. Sounds like a genius move to me, what about you guys?

Regardless of whether or not one thinks game journalism needs to be "fixed," Mark Kern is certainly not who you want leading that call.

Well he's not pro-GG, he's come out and said that. He's anti-anti-GG, meaning he doesn't associate with it, doesn't want to, doesn't believe that everything GG is right about, but is against the anti-GGers who are for the status quo. He's also the first big name former dev to publicly attach his name. There are also several people at other major studios who've come out in support for GG, and a whole shit load of indie dev's who are tired of the yellow journalism and incestuous media relationship with a very small clique of indie devs, their friends, and fixed award shows.

On top of that there's also a number of people apparently who are tired of "circle-jerk" award shows like the shorty's and so on. Especially after the we're going to promote or are influenced by Lena "no girl is too young" Dunham, or Brianna "I'm going to make shit up" Wu.

SSD's are fine especially latest generation, however that website and article was a rag, one can say "using any data storage for every day use or work, may want to backup often" lol
Hell I've got two first gen SSD's both are 60GB and they're still screaming along. The first one got transplanted to my laptop about a year ago, and the other is used for games that take an assload longtime to load aka total war games and so on.

They work fine in servers too, as long as you run a good backup. They're great especially in database servers, the biggest problem we always had was waiting on the DB to serve info to the machines, which SSD's have fixed. Now we're starting to run into an actual bandwidth problem across all the machines.

Ooc, are Windows 7 & 8 region locked or is it possible to find a good deal using VPN?
Depends on where you buy it from some countries are region locked(like russia and china) but some aren't, though during the rush for Win8 keys a lot of people were buying it from india($8 USD) via vpn and it apparently works fine to this day.

If you buy from someone like nuuvum(gaming) it'll usually say if it works in region XYZ or not or if it's locked.

Hey, that's almost a good paraphrase of what the flappy headed nuts at the TDSB tried telling people. Until there was a massive backlash over it, funny enough that one of the people who implemented the curriculum was eventually arrested for pedophilia and copious amounts of kiddie porn. Maybe...it was nothing...maybe...

Apparently Nina Freeman when she was 12 or so did something like this, and thus, the game was born?
When I was 8(almost 27 years ago now), everyone in my class already know how this shit worked. It was all word of mouth or through our parents. Perhaps her parents had problems figuring out how to talk to her? Who knows. Hell I remember at the age of 7 my parents explaining it to me.

Maybe it's the difference between parents today, and parents who grew up in the 60's and lived through the 70's.

I suppose it could be used as an educational tool of sorts? I wonder if there is fisting?
Only if you live in Ontario(Cdn), and you go to a school in Toronto. They also teach sex with veggies as a core component.

Precisely the answer I was looking for. Now, how were those comments received? Were those individuals held up as standard-bearers for feminism, or publicly decried as extremists?
Going by the commenting, and various things by feminist groups. They were received very well. By the general public, not well at all. Thus the fundamental disconnect between reality and fiction.

Which specific feminist are you thinking of that proclaims it's okay to lie about rape?
Take your pick. Remember the UAV case? After it came out as fake, various feminists said it doesn't matter. It was okay to do this because "rape culture." Remember the case with Meg Lanker-Simons? Same deal. You can find the "even if it's fake, it's still true." Comments and stories on both of them.

Sark and company are going to have to do more than tone down their rhetoric. They are going to have to treat disagreement with them, even deep disagreement, as acceptable. The 'we will bury you' schtick didn't work - it's time to share the stage.

They don't want to. Just remember what Jennifer D'aww and Amy Henning said. People like Sarkeesian are the problem.

is it true that colorblind people have better nightvision?

the dress is yellowish-brown (i guess "gold".. it sure as hell isnt metallic so im not sure if i would say gold) and white that seems bluish because it is reflecting light from an artificial source of some kind (flash, tv, etc.)

One of my uncles is red/green colour blind. He had even better night vision then I did when I was a kid, though since he had his double bypass his eyesight has gone for the worse. My great uncle has monochromacy(only sees in shades of grey/white/black etc) and has shit night vision now, but apparently was amazing when he was younger and when he was in the military. Take it as you want though, he's always had to wear a special set of glasses to remove the glare/brightness issues though in the daylight/bright rooms/etc.

Anyway, I see white-gold.

HorrorScope wrote on Feb 27, 2015, 12:46:

Remember this when the game Hatred is brought up again. It's all pretend, horror, gruesome, all things movies and lyrics have done for years. I agree. Not saying you have to like anything in particular or not, but we need to respect that this is all make believe. People like dabbling in darker fantasies.

The world will not be a perfect place, it just wasn't meant to be.

But one line with these people being discussed that I repeat. "You give them a name and you give them power", if I have to spell it out to some, that means ignore them and they are as weak as any persons opinion here.

I'm commenting to members here, not the sources of the news.

FYI Hatred keys came out today for those that ordered it.

Anyway, ignoring people like this doesn't work. Not a single bit, bringing their cancer to light is the best way to get rid of them. And it seems to be working, it worked in the past with Jack Thompson it's working with the new moral authoritarian named Anita Sarkeesian. The number of people calling her out, on her bullshit increases as such she loses face by not counting them. Her videos are closed echo boxes, allow no dissenting opinions, no comments. Her lectures are pre-screened questions, and no dissenting views. The only question is how long is it going to take before this latest person claiming that there's a moral panic goes into the dustbin of history like Tipper Gore and friends, or the scaremongers who were against D&D.
