HorrorScope, do you use LastPass? Just curious, because I've noticed all your posts have the same subject. That was happening to me with LastPass (it saved that field in the blues news profile) until I manually fixed it. Hope you don't mind me pointing that out; I'm just coming from the position that I wish someone had told me at the time.

Sorry for the off topic reply, everyone.

Yes because "Leading Digital Platforms" totally says "Consoles" and is in no way a reference to Steam, GOG.com, Origin, Amazon Digital, Gamestop Digital etc.

I see your point, guess it is just semantics. I never think of those in the context of a platform, but a service.

Brian intends as first priority to direct Gearbox's interest to preserve and assemble the purest form of the original acclaimed and beloved games, Homeworld and Homeworld 2, with the intent of making them accessible on today's leading digital platforms

Translation : Let the console-oriented rape commence.

I was thinking tablets, but yea, surprised no one else has picked up on that. Obviously, they are not thinking of a PC game, or they would of said "on today's cutting edge hardware".

The only "VR" I'm interested in is the ability to actually talk and have the game characters respond, instead of having to deal with mostly-lame decision trees. I'm tired on my only options being, heroic, apathetic, or sociopathic, if given an option at all.

That being said, I like Christ Centered Gamer's take on it:

Thanks for that, I would tend to agree. It also explains the subject's knee-jerk reaction to that scene; he is having a faith crisis of his own.

Nope, I am with you. I can't even play games from the early aughts unless someone has made a hi-res texture pack for it.

The real question is, how large of a golden parachute is he going to get? I would assume it'll be in the hundreds of millions of dollars.

Not only that, he gets his choice of Battlefield 3, Bejeweled 3, Dead Space 3, Mass Effect 3, Medal of Honor Warfighter, Need for Speed Most Wanted, Plants vs. Zombies or SimCity 4 Deluxe Edition.

I don't have too many laugh out loud moments while reading these forums, but this was one of them.

Bravo, sir.

Did you try the setting in the installer where you have the option of removing all previous settings? That's a shot in the dark guess...

Yea, even went so far as to a completely fresh install of the OS. Appreciate the tip though.

So far, I've been unable to use anything newer than 296.10 on my PC. If I try, any game I run goes to black screen, and I have to reboot. I think it has something to do with over-scanning the display, but I can't figure it out. Very frustrating.

28. Re: Fallout 4 Tease Jan 9, 2013, 13:01 Atomic
 
I find these comments oddly compelling, as I find points of agreement with both sides about each game. So does that I mean I love them equally, or hate them equally?

Either way, I'm looking forward to more Fallout.

I never used the Start menu much anyway, so maybe to me, the new Start screen is just not that big a deal and easy to ignore.

Or you could have upgraded to Win7 instead, then you wouldn't have to ignore it at all, and you'd have the option of having a usable Start menu.

So you are saying I should of paid more to retain functionality I admitted was not important to me? I'll admit, there is probably very little compelling reason for someone to go from Windows 7 to Windows 8, but coming from Vista, $40 was a no-brainer, at least to me.

Is this where I quietly admit that I own a Surface and really, really like it?

Or where I admit I upgraded from Vista to Windows 8 and don't regret it? I never used the Start menu much anyway, so maybe to me, the new Start screen is just not that big a deal and easy to ignore. A week after the upgrade, I was shrugging over why there is so much hate for it, but to each his own, I guess.

I'm still on Vista, and want (need) to upgrade. I understand that Windows 8 is not incrementally much of a better upgrade than Windows 7, but considering I can get Windows 8 for $40, should I just make the leap, or pay more for Windows 7?
