Barrett, for example, I was able to get away, go through some vents, hack a garage door open and hack some turrets hidden in a storage locker to be on my side, set them up, and let them handle him.

I also saw a punchable wall in the storage room with the turrets.
Wow that's just awesome...they...fixed it.

Take a read through this thread - it sounds like there's some kind of Intel-specific tech this feature is waiting on, and some kind of official update should be coming soon.

Still a strange way to launch this functionality.
Sounds almost like the same tech that RomeII uses for graphics to improve utilization between the CPU and GPU.

But with most languages different systems require specific code. The point of these kinds of cross platform engines is to minimize, or even entirely eliminate having to write platform specific code.
They invented unicode handling for things like that, and for the most part it's fully standardized unless you're writing in software from pre-2005.

I suppose they don't teach them in school anymore. I seem to recall having to learn them starting around grade 3.
Makes you wonder why, they're still in use in the world.

They've gone the way of cursive and how to write with a quill pen. An interesting relic of the past, but probably not worth actually teaching kids.
Cursive is well...still required for a lot of jobs. Faster than print, especially if you need to jot anything down in a log book. And well I didn't learn to write with a quill pen, but I did learn how to write with a fountain pen, and that was 25 years ago when I was a kid. There is something special about the way ink flows and the letters come out when using one.

So basically if we press "install" and it registers to our steam account it's going to be ours for ever? For free? That's mighty nice of them
Yep. Not the first time either, can't remember which DLC it was for shogun2 but owners got one clan pack for zip as well.

The only thing that can remedy his obsession with the black guy in the White House involves a windowless black van, men in white coats, and about 6 months of deprogramming. It's just easier to ignore him.

What a sad existence.
Funny how with the left it always comes down to race. If *insert race* *people oppose idea* automatically *you're racist.*

Odd how many on the right believe that success and failure are based on the person...but that's obviously racist too.

I always hear population density given as an excuse as to why the US lags so far behind everyone else. Don't they have farmers and people who live in the boonies in Europe too?
Hell you want population density look at Canada. The difference of course is that 85% of our population all live in, on, or near major routes or cities. I'm actually in a remote rural area right now(doing deployment for a city and county), I *can* get broadband...kinda. 6/1 DSL, but there's no ports. That leaves me with LTE as the only form of broadband...at $69/mo with a 12GB cap, and $10/GB overcharge. Right now though the CAO and I are discussing whether we should simply set the town up as a ISP and offer deployment like that. We have no problems getting T1/T2/T3 lines run into the city hall/provincial building. In fact we just dropped in a second T1, so we have a bonded pair. But getting Telus to increase the number of availble ports? Good fucking luck.

And I haven't even started on the 3 day outage when they cut their own fiber link to the town. The fun thing with that is, it killed everything in the city. No banking, no bank machine, no POS sales by debit/credit, no phone service, no 911 nothing.

By my informal count, that's a buttload of changes.

How playable is this? If it was released in it's present, Patch 5 state, what would the reaction be?
It was pretty good in patch 4, I haven't started a new game in patch 5 yet. Been sucked into playing BG2 heh. But from what my buddy says it's pretty damned good. Then again, I was happy with it at release and it only got better after patch 2.

Well with the new directx requiring windows 8.1, wouldn't surprise me if MS started sponsoring games if they require that crap. More shoehorning ahead.
Meh. The new DX has less features than the update of OGL from 3.0 to 3.1. And what it "does" do, is already covered via drivers from both AMD and nVidia. And really the "tiled resource" isn't anywhere near as good as AMD's mantle system.

Not just this game. The entire game industry has been retardedly-hooked on "idle animations" for WAY too long. Motherfuckers cannot stand still, it's just too "unrealistic".

Uh...I don't know anyone who doesn't breath in real life anyway. And since the zombie apocolypse isn't upon us, there are indeed people who are "animated in life" too. Really if you get that bent out of shape over idle animations, then grab a book.

Undoubtedly its something with win 8.1 and xBone. Probably something along the lines of "you upgrade to 8.1 or you can't even play the games we sponsor"
Considering the lack of support for GFWL, not only from developers but gamers I'm surprised that it lasted as long as it did. It's easy to shoehorn people into something when it's your market, but when the market is what people decide they want to put up with, then things change quickly.

Considering it's still beta? Not too worried about it.

Those are RFID, not chipped. Two different things altogether, we have both up here in Canada. RFID is limited to $50, and chipped requires a pin.

I tossed a link up a few days ago, for Xcom:EW for $26.99 it includes a $4 cashback or $6 GMG credit. If you can't stand $22.99 or $20.99 well that's your problem.

The game was ready to play at release. Some people weren't happy with how it was at release though.

Heads up, GMG has Xcom: Enemy Within for 10% off plus a $4 cashback, or $6 GMG credit. Making the total $22.99 or 20.99 depending.

Fek. I'm gonna get those prices right...eventually, damn pain meds.

Gee there Red Cross, most gamers not only have plenty of disposable income, but regularly donate to worthy causes. I guess they really want to tick people off so their donation pool dry's up.
