Derek just grab a bowl of popcorn with the rest of us and watch Chris Roberts go down with his sinking spaceship. No need for all of this!

Had these kids experienced that kind of display, they'd be more open to the concept of higher framerates = better. I'm looking into upgrading soon to one of the new 48" curved 4k quantum dot displays from Samsung, but I'm a little worried about how jarring the transition will be in going to a 60hz display. I'll probably keep both displays side by side, at least for a while. I think (hope) the improvement in immersion would trump any negative effects felt from going from a fast display to a "slow" one.

It's really a shame that the 144hz LCDs have to be shitty TN panels. I've used one before and it's pretty glorious if you're playing a game you can get up to 144 fps. But the colors suck for watching movies or doing anything else really.

but it's more amusing to me that on the consoles vs the pc there's a way bigger space of what's the ideal.

Well, when people are generally stuck with no choice, they kind of learn to accept it I guess. A lot of PC gamers have rarely had to deal with framerates under 60, if they keep their stuff updated. Meanwhile a lot of console gamers have never played something above 30.

The biggest racist subs are a fraction of the size of even a lot of the smaller game-specific subreddits, to put it in perspective.

The real problem is the subtle insidious racism present in the news sections and other areas of the site. Banning some tiny subreddits won't get rid of that.

I'm not going to pretend I'd lose any sleep over CoonTown or some other shitfuckery getting banned, but I don't particular care one way or the other because I know it wouldn't have any effect beyond placating some short-sighted SJW types who somehow think banning those subs will fix reddit.

Sounds like press release bullshit, no way it was more sales than black friday.

Source for the data you're drawing your conclusion from?


Source for Amazon's data? Oh yeah, Amazon...no reason why they would make this shit up right?

Amazon's numbers are still more convincing than the argument "Everything they say is a lie because CORPORATIONS ARE EVIL AND ONLY TELL LIES." Sorry but if the only thing someone has to say is "I DONT BELIEVE YOU" they might as well not even contribute.

Particularly when they haven't provided examples of Amazon getting caught out with false press releases before.

Amazon's numbers aren't particularly outrageous. They claim 266% increased sales over same day last year, so not even 4 times the sales of a normal day. And only an 18% increase over Black Friday 2014. Black Friday also has a lot of competition from other outlets. They were the only ones running a huge sale that day to my knowledge.

If you actually look at the numbers, they don't strain believability, so there's really no stand-out reason to doubt them. Yes, there is marketing fluff in this PR, but it isn't the numbers. The real PR BS in the release: the idea that beating Black Friday sales is some monumental achievement, it isn't, if you're the only one doing the massive sale.

Fucking idiots who think biological sensors utilize anything close to resembling a "frame rate" do not belong in any kind of discussion whatsoever, related or not. You lack the grey matter to participate.

Precisely. The maximum "frame rate" you can see is not some fixed fucking number. It depends on a huge number of factors and varies wildly from person to person. For example, sit someone in front of a dark screen and flash a white frame at them at 30fps, 60fps, 90fps, 500fps, they are still going to be able to see that frame. Sit them in front of a white screen and flash a black frame at them. They'll probably not be able to discern that one frame as quickly. Rods vs cones, dark vs light, blah blah blah.

It all depends on how you measure it, the rate of change between the frames, the brightness, the colors involved, the responsiveness of that person's particular non-standard slimy biological optical sensor, and so on.

Anyone trying to give you a maximum FPS eyes can see is a fucking retard who is grossly misinformed. Particularly anyone telling you that you can't see the difference between 30, 60, 120 fps, etc. considering it's trivial to slap 30fps gameplay next to 60fps gameplay and see the difference side-by-side.

I don't know what y'all are smoking. Olivia Munn looks smoking in that outfit, and she can actually act if you watched Newsroom. Kelly Hu is a fucking cardboard cutout who couldn't even do a convincing China White on Arrow.

Shoulda had him play the NEW ONE and tell them wtf they went wrong..

He liked DXHR so I think you'd probably be disappointed. Here's what he had to say on reddit a couple months back.

I think people expect me to be pissed about new Deus Ex games that I'm not making but it's really not like that at all. I'm just excited (thrilled might be a better word) that I was part of the creation of something that's bigger than myself, that has a life of its own.

What did I think of DX:HR? Well, for starters, I don't finish a lot of games and I finished DX:HR. That'll tell you something. When I DID finish it, I kinda sat back and thought, "Wow, I just had a Deus Ex experience." It sounded like DX and felt like DX. It was pretty cool.

The Eidos Montreal guys made some design decisions I wouldn't have made, but overall, I was really pleased.

There's a lot of ignorance about reddit coming from people who never really used it or just took a cursory glance at the default subreddits. But, reddit is pretty solid for gamers.

/r/games has some of the best game related discussions available on the Internet. (Don't confuse it with /r/gaming which is just a terrible place filled with memes and Nintendo fans.)

Plus just about any game anyone is playing has a game specific subreddit where you can discuss stuff. Generally these subreddits are on par or significantly better than the general community playing said game. There are helpful links, active moderators (i moderate a few gaming subs myself...) who keep out shitters, etc.

The voting system can be flawed but in the gaming subs it's generally pretty good. Contrary to popular belief you're not going to be downvoted into oblivion for merely having an "unpopular opinion."

Tact is really important in the smaller subs. The communities there are often made up of a lot of people who don't post anywhere but a few small subs, and don't take part in the larger reddit community, so they have different standards. You can have an unpopular opinion and get upvoted a little bit (obviously you won't be swimming in upvotes) or you can post a popular opinion but be a needlessly rude fuckhole about it and see your post buried at the very bottom where a user has to click a button to see it.

Honestly the gaming discussion on reddit, provided you're visiting the right subs, is about a thousand times better than anything on Blue's News these days. I spend most of my time commenting there these days, because you can get actual conversation, and generally speaking pretty quality moderation. It's not some fascist stupidity like NeoGAF or SomethingAwful, but it's also not a completely unmoderated barren waste like Blue's.

I think he lost his head. Or maybe a distant relative did. That's the only dude I've ever put on ignore. Glad to not have been mistaken.

Almost seems a waste of a spot on the ol' ignore list considering the guy has posted less than 150 times in the 15 years he's had an account.

As with anything, follow the money. Compare who is bankrolling Bernie vs. who is bankrolling Hillary.

I'll give you a spoiler: It's banksters for Hilary vs. trade unions for Bernie. While coming from a union family I've seen the downside to trade unions, it's nowhere near the level of scumfuckery the banksters perpetrate.
