This is some good timing. I was just about to retire my two raid0 74gb raptors for a new samsung ssd as my gaming drive...not because either raptor that i bought in 2005 died mind you, but because they just wont die...ever...

Ouch. What was the best NBA2K year for PCs? It seems Windows ports have issues every year.

Id say 2010 for gameplay and 2k12 for the teams (dream team!)

So now that i've spent a few days with it i'm impressed. I already played just about daily but now i'm even more hooked. What really impresses me is the new NPC quests and customizing your hideout. Just in awe that this is a free 2 play game (not pay2win!!). If you were on the fence about it before or thought about if this is a good time to get back into PoE, then go for it!

Just glad PC's didnt get the graphics shaft like they did last year. Although this series seems to be getting worse and worse from a gameplay standpoint.

There are new maps, as one of the new NPC's is dedicated to end game maps (tho maybe not new tilesets if thats what you meant)

I'm personally having a blast, playing Beyond and Rampage. Beyond (the hardcore league) can get crazy as it also has ambush style boxes, so things can get real crazy really quickly with the beyond portals opening.

There's a few new skills, lots of things rebalanced, the skill tree itself has been redone quite a bit as well. Even for the most vigilant player, its like a new game as there are tons of new build possibilities now. Also they even completely redid some of the existing skills that werent very useful or effective like viperstrike (now its awesome, playing a viperstrike build atm). Same with quite a few other skills.

My experience is that Windows 8.x may, boot way faster, or way slower. My old main rig went from 60 second start up in Windows 7 to 90 seconds in Windows 8. 8.1 did not improve things.

My netbook, officially unsupported by Windows 8, went from 80 second start up to 20 seconds.

As for application support, there are a number of games that will not run in Windows 8.1, some of them quite new. My blu-ray player will not run, even though it is officially supported. Though I upgraded from Windows 7 instead of fresh install and apparently Windows forgot to install one of the base DLL files which caused the blu-ray player not to work. I also needed to get new versions of some of my video editing software. In my experience Windows 8.x was a crappy downgrade experience all around on the software compatibility side.

My new rig I upgrade to Windows 7 and I must say the usability and compatibility has gone way up. It boots in 24 seconds.

Do tell, what games wont run on win8 (or 8.1) that will run on 7? I'm genuinely curious as i've never encountered ANYTHING that wont run on 8 that will run on 7.

Same, all they had to do was have the exact same mechanics as Shogun2 with just a roman setting and somehow they even fucked that up. I think i'll wait another year or two and maybe fire up some of the mods that came closest to healing this abomination.

Very sad, as i had very high hopes on this game. Its really the only RTS (/w TBS elements) style of games i really enjoy.

Why do people who twitch use the worst music possible?

It's like a rule of streaming that the person will have awful taste in music that they want to force on the world.

Also the people who get access to games pre-release and stream it are always the worst players imaginable and make the games seem terrible.

More likely, that if they play anything remotely popular then they'll be getting hit up by the nice folks at RIAA

Bob Slydell: So we just went ahead and fixed the glitch.

Bill Lumbergh: Great.

Dom Portwood: So, uh, Milton has been let go?

Bob Slydell: Well, just a second there, professor. We, uh, we fixed the *glitch*. So he won't be receiving a paycheck anymore, so it'll just work itself out naturally.

Bob Porter: We always like to avoid confrontation, whenever possible. Problem is solved from your end.

Ya, i'm leaving this 1month league stuff alone. I'll prolly play both the new 3month standard/hc leagues though. I kinda keep standard chars for my theory crafting, and if thats good then i try something similar in the hc 3-4 month leagues.

@Axis its /oos so no wonder why your macro didnt work

As for this expansion i'm really hyped. Its the true Diablo successor. D3 looks pretty and has absolutely no depth. I want to like it, i'm a huge blizzard fanboi but damn, D3 is a travesty.

Gilly, when i first tried PoE i played for about an hour and immediatly uninstalled. I found it slow and lacking and didnt understand the currency system. Then a few months later maybe out of bordom i reinstalled it, gave it another shot as a different charactor and was blown away. Just making a different charactor can completely change the experience one has (melee is truely slower than shit when just starting off). Now its one of my favorite most played games.

I cant say i have a lot of lag or desync issues for me personally, but my cousin seems to have more problems then i. Not sure what to account for it other then different servers. Although that doesnt stop him from playing although adds to the frustration. Hardcore can be very punishing, but just the sheer fact that you never lose your charactor or items (they just goto standard league) i think makes up for it.

Well i'm man enough to admit when he's wrong. It still seems like a vulnerability the more you update that TC volume and sync it to dropbox though. Also who's this Lilith you speak of eRe4s3r

Data is data, even if it's a container. Anything capable of backing up only delta changes in a SQL db should also be able to backup a Truecrypt volume.


Its pretty clear you dont understand how encryption works, and if it did work like you suggest then it would be easily defeated.

This is such a waste of money and resources by valve, partner with Sony or Microsoft and try to get into those markets and call it a day.

Can services like Dropbox do block-level syncing? For example, if you make a 1GB TrueCrypt volume, and modify 1MB of data inside it, does Dropbox need to send the whole 1GB back to the cloud, or can it just sync the blocks that changed?

If it can't do block level, that kinda kills any ability to do your own encryption, right? Or am I missing a tool that I should know about?

It wont work as Truecrypt your just making a container. As far as services I recommend Tresorit myself in place of dropbox.
