For anyone with a Synology NAS there is a cryptolocker variant targeting it making the rounds, might want to make sure DSM is updated.

It'll never get done because America is the land of rampant paranoia. It's pretty difficult for you guys to see it from the inside, but very easy for everyone else on the outside. There are boogiemen and enemies everywhere!

Good job voting back in that corrupt Liberal government in Ontario. Canada is the land of inertia where everyone complains but no one does anything, what's your point?

Guardians is for all intents and purposes The Avengers by another name. I found both Guardians and Avengers mediocre at best.

I was digging through my PS3 games and stumbled upon Tales of Xillia. Having no recollection of purchasing it, I vaguely recalled playing a bit and being bored in the extreme. Then I skipped on to Ni no Kuni and decided to play that again, instead. A really remarkable game not garnering a quarter as much notice from gamers as it deserves, and an extraordinary cooperative effort between Level 5 and Studio Ghibli.

Ni No Kuni was pretty good but man that party AI really drags it down. I was able to get around it with some specific companions but its a shame they paid so little attention to that aspect since it really makes the combat tedious at times.

Yeah I wouldn't say I loved The Avengers either, it was alright. I know nothing about Guardians so hopefully that tempers my expectations.

Yeah I just noted the same thing in the console section since it mentioned Sacred 3 was out there too. I played Sacred 3 on the weekend and it is by far one of the worst games I've played in awhile. They stripped out loot and pretty much everything else resembling depth, instead it feels like a shoddy beat em up.

Re: xbox - Or they could just drop the damned price. You're selling inferior hardware, price it accordingly.

I checked out Sacred 3 on the weekend by the way, I am a big fan of the franchise. Sacred 3 is an unbelievable turd that no one should waste their time on, it is bad and diverges from the main series on so many levels. Maybe one day write up a proper teardown on it but I'm not sure its even worth the time, it's a terrible game.

Normally I would agree with Creston but maybe you're right Sho, I never thought about it that way before. Cutter does this all the time so I suggest just complaining to the admins and eventually they will either do something about it like with RollinThundr or people will just have to live with it.

Anyways whatever, getting back on topic I backed this a long time ago but the 20GB beta install kinda put me off since I didn't have my new SSD yet. I am very anxious to check it out but I haven't heard much beta related feedback. Hopefully by the time I'm done with it Tides of Numera will be out.

Not new but the pattern is becoming clear. I've never seen such a toxic presence on a forum before, just literal negativity and hate 24/7. No wonder developers can't interact with communities anymore.

You just have to kind of tune him out for now. Blue is pretty lenient but he will go too far and get himself banned eventually, they always do.

Yeah, people get that, but talking about safety directly after an assault has happened is crass and demonstrates a lack of decency.


I don't think that's fair at all. Its arguably the most important time to talk about it while its still fresh in peoples minds. People are capable of multiple emotions, I can empathize here while still using it as an instructional example for my kid.

So they remain committed to IP that is getting them nowhere? These guys must be privately owned because I can't imagine Cervat Yerli not being out on his ass already.

It will always boggle my mind this instant reflex or need that people seem to have....when they hear someone has been beaten or raped or whatever...to firstly ask "what did they do to make themselves a target". Blows my mind every time. As if it matters.

Why do you assume everyone is coming at it from that angle? Humans are iterative, we learn by example. We're also inherently curious. People often want to know because that's how we learn. It might be crass but its important. The circumstances absolutely matter, just not for the reasons you seem to think.

Edit: beaten by NKD

I've been saying this for a while now. So much of videogaming history will be lost to the ages because of dying hardware and more recently online server requirements. There are ways around a lot of these things but in 25 years will anyone be able to find a playable version of Diablo 2? Maybe, but the real question is will anyone be able to find a playable version of Diablo 3? Whether or not someone 25 years from now would want to play such ancient games (by future standards) isn't the point - this is our gaming HISTORY. Nobody values the Liberty Bell based on well it rings, nor do they judge the value of the USS Missouri based on how it could perform in a modern-day sea battle.

Honestly thanks to VMs I think the situation is better than ever before for singleplayer games. Like you said though the real concern is games with online functionality. Look at all of the upcoming Ubisoft games and they underpinned online shit into every aspect. The day will come when they will shut those servers down and the excuse will be that only 5-10 gamers still play it. Personally I don't care if 1 or a million people play it, if I bought it I expect it to be playable. This is really a complex problem though because companies cannot just support a game indefinitely anymore and still create others, most aren't structured like Valve who can live off Steam/Dota/TF2 forever.

Atm anything is better than Extant!

I've actually been rather entertained with Extant. It's not my favorite show by all means, but hardly a dud. That might change though, of course.

I can't stand Extant but I'm watching it anyway, go figure. The plotholes already piling up 3 episodes in, Halle Barre still hasn't done anything decent in her career except Monster's Ball and the show completely busts suspension of disbelief which is saying something for sci-fi. Despite all of that I keep watching it even with many better things to do with my time, I have no idea why

Could be worse I guess, could be The Strain. That show has some of the worst writing ever on TV "look at that plane, looks like a downed animal. Call Washington and tell them....we've got a dead bird dundundun". I started laughing out loud at that shit.

SecuRom DRM, while 'unpopular' is very strangely over-vilified compared to the persistent and even more insidious DRM of Steam, Ubisoft, etc.

If Sony had the same level of zombie-control that Valve and Apple does, you would soon be reading posts defending SecuRom with all the shills in unison. Instead, you get the indefensible position of on-line DRM is somehow better for you than off-line DRM.

Thinking people know differently.

I've never had an issue with Steams DRM outside of the HL2 release. Offline mode always kicks in automatically if I happen to lose my connection and outside of multiplayer Steamworks titles which rely on internet related functionality I have no issues. People like Steam because the DRM is relatively benign.

I can't say the same thing for SecuROM over the years.

Still no ability to have friend logon notifications. No suspend/resume for games in standby mode. In a year from now we will actually get the PS4 OS they advertised pre-release.

I'm surprised to see any love for the show here, I found it pretty mediocre. It's full of terrible writing, characters keeping secrets for no reason, plenty of nonsense drama targeted at female demos and the show has little consistency within its own boundaries. One of the more disappointing sci-fi series I've seen and a pretty poor post-apocalyptic setting.

This video looks horrible by the way.
