Fuck preordering this game. Waiting for the inevitable "Enhanced Edition"
I'll wait for reviews... and maybe a small discount in the Summer Sale.

Edit: Who am I kidding. I don't even have time to play this. Too many other things in the backlog right now. Maybe I get it in Holiday Sale or next Summer Sale instead.

That's the way to do it with these guys. There'll be some enhanced edition that is cheaper and more polished a ways down the line. Better experience for less money? Sign me up.

Someone needs to drop the nail in AC coffin already. This series has gone on waaaaay too long. Has it already eclipsed Resident Evil? A franchise from the 90s that has numerous spin offs and sequels? lol

If people stop buying it, they'll stop selling it. People shitting al over something on Blue's News means nothing to Ubisoft or any other company if they still sell millions of copies.

wow you must be a genius.. did you figure this out all on your own?

Nah your mom helped me.

Amazon’s rapid growth is driving gentrification into popular neighborhoods such as quirky, traditionally gay, Capitol Hill. But Capitol Hill is becoming ‘less gay’ and LGBTQ hate-crimes jumped from 6 in 2011 to 19 in 2012.

What are they trying to say?

I think it was a mistake to not allowing flying mounts in the new expansion. I would come back and play if I wasn't forced to take 10 minute gryphon rides all the time, or trek out of my way to reach a place I could easily fly to. They thought it would keep people in the game, but they thought wrong.

Lack of flying mounts didn't really bother me because there was literally no reason to leave my garrison. I'm not sure what you were planning on doing with your flying mounts.

I think the larger problem is that it's Garrison Simulator 2015: Make More Alts Edition.

Oh, and I certainly don't see the Democrats as superior in all ways. Unfortunately they are in most though. Primarily because the Republicans take so many noxious positions in addition to the few good ones they have. The bad far outweighs the good there.

Yeah, even if a Republican came along with a good number of policies I agreed with, their pandering to the people who want an ignorant anti-science theocracy in our country would make it impossible for me to justify voting for them.

I can look past a few policies I don't like. I can't look past disgustingly regressive social ideals.

If we had a multiple party system, there could be a party for people who like certain conservative policies but don't believe in outlawing being gay or atheist.

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.
