No it's not. Once people realize they wasted their money on the latest useless fad it'll be over before it began.

Other things you've been wrong on include vaccination causing autism, smartphones being a 'fad' and predicting records were going to take over again from mp3s. I wonder how it feels to be completely out of touch with the rest of the world.

Cutter has a pretty low batting average for someone who seriously considers himself some kind of infallible prophet.

People need education about how disruptive the lasers are to pilots. When I see this topic come up I see a lot of people talking like it's "common sense". It's common sense that a laser will annoy someone, it isn't common sense that it can distract them enough to cause an incident or cause blindness. Most people are unaware of the differences in the laser wavelengths and power. They picture the pilot just seeing a little blinking light down there like someone with a flash light. Hell, most don't even know that you can actually hit the small, relatively fast moving target by eyeballing it from the ground. It's typically little more than a kid playing with something they think is a harmless toy, because in fact they are marketed as toys and used as toys.

Retardedly steep sentences don't do shit because A) nobody hears about them and B) most people aren't even aware it's a crime. The deterrent value of a steep sentence is only helpful if everyone knows about it, but that's not how the world works. You can't "make an example" of someone by sentencing them if the media doesn't report on it beyond a couple techie sites read mostly by people who aren't shining lasers at planes.

It's up to the media and other people to talk about the issue, which no one is doing, because frankly the media are just as ignorant as everyone else when it comes to the effect of higher powered laser pointers on pilots.

Like most things, it'll probably take a horrific accident to get any media coverage on the risks. Thankfully there haven't been any accidents or near misses associated with laser pointers, despite thousands of occurrences each year.

I'm pretty sure this exact same render is possible with DX11 as well, and is more a function of massive rendering power and very skilled artists than some kind of OMGDX12MAJICS!!!


Unlikely. It's very easy to create a workload situation that shines in DX12 and absolutely crumples in DX11. I'm sure that's what they've done here. This is just a prettier version of the other tests showing DX12 smashing DX11 to bits.

Sure let me pony up for 4 Titan X's.

But what I don't get, is that with the consoles being AMD (360 PS4) why you would use a Final Fantasy game (that has never been a major graphics whore) to showcase DX 12.

It's not in-game shots from an FF game, it's a real time tech demo like a 3DMark scene or something.

I still think Watch Dogs has a pretty solid concept, it just needs iteration in the same way that AC1 -> AC2 did. AC1 was dreadfully boring and I struggled to get through it. But then AC2 and AC:B had me glued to the games until completion.

I enjoyed Watch Dogs a lot more than I enjoyed the first Assassin's Creed.

Maybe if GG weren't hurling torrents of abuse at people there wouldn't be a need for an automated blocklist just a thought.

They were blocking anyone who disagreed with them, literally. It has nothing to do with abuse, they just don't want any opposing view points. Sorry that doesn't fit with your internal narrative but thems the breaks.

Not sure why he'd think it was just for abusers anyway. The admins of the blockbots proudly admitted that being blocked wasn't just for abusers but rather for anyone who argued with them on Twitter, or anyone who even followed one of their detractors. They even had "levels" like some kind of sex offender registry. But the levels were rather pointless since literally anyone using it blocks all levels.

None of this is Gamergate propaganda, it's all straight from the horses mouth.

K...so who are they exploiting? They wanted their game to be on various digital platforms, and the SJW's came out of the woodwork crying over it. So far the only ones trying to exploit the game for anything are the ones who don't want it to be sold. Especially when they trot out the discredited "games cause violence..." bullshit.

Yup.. if the SJWs hadn't made a big fuss like Jack Thompson was coming back in style, not a lot of people would have heard of this game. The developer has only done very basic marketing. I, myself, only heard about it because of the controversy posted here about it some months back.

Like you said, the only people exploiting this game are the SJWs using it to say violent video games should be banned without actually saying it.

Parallax Abstraction wrote on Apr 29, 2015, 22:58:
The organisation that endorsed a thought-policing Twitter blockbot written by a person with a history of harassment and abuse towards others is claiming that no dialogue is possible. Yes that's true, because you blocked everyone who dared to think differently than you.

I laugh whenever I see these people talk about tolerance for other peoples opinions. They literally live in a hugbox where no other opinions exist and where other opinions are literally so scary they need a room to go to and hide from them.

Meanwhile, student volunteers put up posters advertising that a “safe space” would be available for anyone who found the debate too upsetting.

The safe space, Ms. Byron explained, was intended to give people who might find comments “troubling” or “triggering,” a place to recuperate. The room was equipped with cookies, coloring books, bubbles, Play-Doh, calming music, pillows, blankets and a video of frolicking puppies, as well as students and staff members trained to deal with trauma.

When one of the main SJW nutjobs on Twitter had a coffee meeting with a game studio head who was once accused and exonerated of sexual harassment, her followers freaked out and many of them stated that they "no longer felt safe" because of the meeting.

It's just a big competition to see who can be a bigger victim or be more scared so they can get more VictimBuxx on Patreon. Meanwhile actual victims of actual oppression by actual government agencies are being effectively ignored because of the color of their skin and their socioeconomic status. These are victims who are so fed up with what's being done to them that they actually lose their shit and go outside and burn buildings down and attack cops. I think that's a much bigger issue than how many pink blue and green haired SJWs tweeting #KillAllMen we can get working on game studios.

Just look at the Youtube comments. You've got people calling for the ability to kill Jews, kill children, kill "islamists and homosexuals", kill war veterans, the elderly, pregnant women, people want a Ferguson mod so they can kill black people.

Oh no! Not edgy YouTube comments from teenagers trying to get a rise out of people! Those awful people! Make it stop!

Personally I'll be playing it like Christopher Dorner Simulator 2015.

I didn't use any mods at all because I knew this was coming. They said in interviews prior to release regarding mods that their #1 concern was the integrity of the multiplayer game, and with Rockstar Shitter Club it's hard to know exactly when and what they are tracking.

They should have been more clear. Banning people for a relatively benign mod without any clarification or warning is inexcusable.

If the modding community was tltally against this, then why did so many modders choose to list their mods for a fee? Why did so many people buy them?

They didn't. Only a couple dozen mods were listed as pay-to-play, and between all of them the total take was $10,000 in the first day according to Gaben, before Valve and Bethesda took their cut.

The program wasn't up long enough to get any real data about adoption, but the sentiment online was largely negative, and modders weren't exactly rushing to put their shit up for a price tag.

You can rant and rant some more all you'd like about people being entitled to money for their work, but apparently you don't believe people have the right to say "This is not something I am willing to pay for." without being insulted and called names.

Slick wrote on Apr 28, 2015, 06:41:

just remember who spoke up and ruined this for them, it wasn't the modders.

Actually the Skyrim modding community was largely against this as well. Not just players. The modders themselves. Many felt cheated with the arrangement that made them into DLC factories funneling money to Bethesda, others felt the spirit of modding was demolished by the idea of monetizing, still others felt betrayed because dropping this into a several year old modding community effectively split their community in two.

Your portrayal that it's just some greedy players ruining the poor modders day is inaccurate at best. Modders that went pay-to-play weren't particularly well received by their fellow modders either.

I followed the drama as it unfolded in the Skyrim Mods subreddit and on Nexus and a lot of modders, the vast majority in fact, were extremely upset with this arrangement.

Good on them for the quick response to feedback. Admittedly, I didn't expect them to hand out refunds, but I guess that makes sense considering it was only a few mods for a couple days and the refunds are less than couch-cushion change for Valve.

This is really a sizeable update. You can now mine resources to make fuel out in the solar system, brand new aerodynamics model, etc. Basically bringing some of the biggest and most popular mod concepts into the base game. In fact I think they worked with some of the modders behind those ideas to implement it.
