And a lot of my British mates really into football love woman's soccer. They say it's a way faster and cleaner game than the mens. None of that nonsense rolling around on the ground trying to draw a penalty, they just bounce back up and get back into it.

It may be faster, but no way is it cleaner:

All I care about is Squadron 42.. and once that releases the game can die, because modders can take over so whatever...

Which part of Squadron42 do you mean? Part1, Part2 or Part3? Since it's supposed to be coming in an episodic format (if at all) what guarantee do any of us have that it will ever be released to completion? I mean since episodic games have such a long and historic record of success that is...

Holy shit Tom The Cruise is splitting from Scientology? How is that not headline news?! How?!!

Their source is a tabloid. Believe it when it actually happens.


I was being sarcastic. But thanks for the heads-up anyway

This. Also, why would anyone consider DX12 exclusivity to be anything but a bait job to lure 'gamers' into upgrading and how is that exactly a good thing?
DX12 goes hand-in-hand with WDDM 2.0. And WDDM 2.0 is the biggest overhaul of the underlying Windows graphics layer since WDDM 1.0 and Vista in 2006. Everything from memory management to task pre-emption is being touched and improved. These aren't changes that can be backported to older versions of Windows.

Rofl Vista and DX10....

Yep. Also it's not like this is new or anything. The EU passed a similar law about a year ago. Read the damn article

i dunno.. i kinda enjoy watching Apple morph into Dell in slow motion

in a logical future, where people have to know a basic amount of coding just to get around (like how people today need to have a basic amount of automobile piloting skills), the only thing rising to the top is Linux, especially with its ability to mutate into endless forms

however, a logical future is not necessarily what will happen

Bad comparison because drivers are moving away from stick and know less and less how to actually *fix* the guts of their car, which is what coding would be analogous to.

I have male friends who have no f*cking clue how to change a tire.

That's your iPhone generation right there.

no its a good comparison because im not talking about FIXING a car, im talking about DRIVING a car

and yes, I consider coding analogous to DRIVING in the logical future I am imagining... in other words, a kind of navigation and general getting around, not a repair of broken shit

but you're right about the current prognosis based on current events... it doesnt look like the future will flow in a logical direction, but more and more into the terminal kaleidoscope of self-destruction

humanity had their chance and they are about to blow it - it wont be long now until the shit really hits the fan

Nope, still a pretty bad comparison. It's like 'driving' the internet today. You don't do it directly, google does it for you. Once we get true AI, Im guessing it will be a much better software writer than any human intelligence now, there will be no more need for true coders or programmers. People will still need to deal with and solve logical problems, but AI will actually help them write the actual applications or code to do so.

Yo welcome back dsmart I guess the chanting worked. Gotta say I liked what you had to say about Star Citizen, it's spot on, even though I had to skip through the self-congratulatory ego stroking parts.
It's not gonna convince the fanboys though, but it might prevent others from throwing money at RSI.

Real-world application performance difference between the operating systems is virtually non-existent. There's nothing really "wrong" with it at this point once you get 8.1 and classic shell, and there is no reason you would choose 7 over 8 for a new computer today... but there is basically nothing compelling or forcing an upgrade over 7 for existing machines.

This. Also, why would anyone consider DX12 exclusivity to be anything but a bait job to lure 'gamers' into upgrading and how is that exactly a good thing?

For once I agree with Derek (As far as the snippet posted here on blues below the headline).
He isnt right. People are not buying something. They are donating.

Read the damn article.

Ok thanks guys. In WOT for example I preffered the Heavy tank role (though that meant different things for different nations) although I enjoyed playing the medium tanks as well. I guess Ill gun for the destroyer and battleship classes then.

Bigelow wouldnt touch this critically panned piece of shit hollywood franchise with a ten-foot pole. And good for her. Reboots of classic cult movies are bad enough, now we are rebooting the shit that sucked from day one. Yay for reboots Puke

So....Youve convinced me to give it a go. Just to see what the gameplay is all about. Last time round (with WOT) I went with the wrong tree. Since there is no Soviet tree in this game, which tree should I try first and what class?

Had a quick looksee at the tech trees....Japan has battleships, the US has carriers?

TF2 was still kind of fun the last time I played it, I dont doubt it's still pretty great. Im not going back though, found it a little bit douchy that I had to grind to get drops to set the loadouts I wanted for the characters I wanted to play. Douchy, because I paid full price for this game when it came out with the Orange Box (and purchased two copies as gifts for RL friends) & I hate grinding in FPS games. Hope there is none of that shit in Overwatch, will be trying that out for laughs...

Does it take 2500 games using premium to unlock the Tier X ships? If it does, then FUCK Wargaming. I gave up on WOT due to the increasingly tedious grind. Even using premium time.

Yeah, I'm not disagreeing with you on that one. I do hope that given the reception and success of NV, Obsidian gets another shot at a standalone expansion. Also, it's not out completely of the question that Bethsoft surprises everyone and releases a good game, it's just not very likely.
