Holy shit, 6GB of VRam! My card "GTX 970 SC" only has 4GB. WTF!

I just got this card too. I pre ordered this game on GMG had 15 dollar credit and used the coupon got the game for 30 bucks.

Cant wait to play this one, glad to see the reviews are panning out.

I wouldn't sweat the requirements too much, they're often inaccurate. I've seen minimums that are absurd and high end specs that the game didn't warrant at all.

They met and had kids before the accident unless I'm reading the article wrong.

I've played the alpha on and off a bit, shows promise but needs more fleshing out. The crafting really needs more attention, they've already got a good handle on giving you little dungeons and busywork to do. Their housing implementation isn't quite what I had imagined either, just these plots on a changing worldspace feels a bit odd.

I think I want something like this but the ability to have permanent homes on a single world with friends. Sadly most companies don't want private servers as the F2P microtransactions are too attractive.

And then you can't wait for Cyberpunk to ship, so they can start talking about whatever other upcoming project. Others mentioned this before and I just had to chime in to ask it of you as well: Do you even play games or just like to talk about them?

Uh that's kind of how games work, you play them then you play something else when you're finished. He talks about them on a forum just like you do. What a weird post.

I read the entire article; the husband sounds like a piece of shit

I don't know man, I dated a woman who had a brain injury from a car accident several years ago. She was beautiful, very intelligent and didn't have any issues with learning faculties or motor skills but her emotional manifestations were all fucked up and her short term memory was strange. She would confuse people in stories and stuff like that but remain stubborn/certain about the details to the point of argument. Her emotional swings were like whiplash and I'm pretty patient. It was a really challenging relationship and in the end I couldn't stand the constant emotional tug of war.

We dated for less than a year but it felt like being married for 10. I can only imagine what it would be like for that guy who also had kids to contend with and a huge history with her before the accident.

Generally I find games that try to be scary more stupid than frightening.

You're not wrong. The only actually-frightening game I can think of is the overlooked gem Undying.

Undying is one of the few games where I think piracy had a real negative impact, I remember it being heavily traded back then. Great atmosphere for the first half of the game anyway, it kinda gets weird with the supernatural monks and other stuff.

Ah, 1st person would be cool but the series has always been 3rd person so I don't know if I'd even use it.

My largest concern with the game is that the world is to big. Whenever I watched anyone else play they'd have mission objectives half way across the map so everyone ended up using cheats to get helicopters to make the travel shorter because by car it's a 20 minute drive.. real time.

Still, very much looking forward to it.

Don't worry, that's not a big deal. You can taxi almost anywhere and you can also swap between characters while one is driving to a way point. I can't think of anywhere that requires 20 minutes of straight driving either.

I'm really worried about my pick on the Panthers/Ravens match more than any other pick this week. Niners and Eagles is another one that's tough to call.

Also kudos to Batman for choosing the ESPN site, its waaaay better than BTI. Much more useful info and lot of stats available. BTI was so basic last year and a few times it didn't save my picks properly.

If you saw the way my wife ate chicken wings you'd be shocked if that number as low as 10%. She nibbles at it like a mouse and then tosses it aside. Weirdo.

Haha, my girlfriend does the same thing and it drives me nuts. She nibbles at it and then puts it to the side of the plate with huge hunks of meat left on it. Before we moved in together she would just throw out any potential leftovers. Meat is the most expensive stuff we buy for food, stop wasting it woman!

I find the numbers pretty dubious, the WD Red failure rate seems far too high and the Seagate numbers are catastrophic, there would be widespread angst and recalls if it was really 24% for a single drive line. That's like IBM DeathStar material. Probably also worth noting that BackBlaze's usage scenarios aren't exactly the norm when considering consumer drive applications.

Haha be real, its Valve, they rarely do anything quickly

Will it improve? Anyones guess. Some things Valve takes very seriously and others they drop and seem to forget that it ever existed. It's just a supplementary feature so its not a huge deal but some of the feature omissions are real head scratchers.

Enh, I'll pass on this. This is way too dated, way too rehashed, way too silly now. This franchise needs a reboot with an up to date engine.


Agreed, its well past the point of absurdity and just seems stupid now.

Quite frankly it's pretty shit if you ask me.

Yeah I have to agree, it feels like a shitty open source project or something. The entire implementation is off and its missing many key features. The only reason I would ever use this is for my HTPC when people are over but the lack of better shuffle/party functionality kills that.

10% food fine for garbage bins? That seems like I'd be paying that a lot, if they count food waste items, ie. chicken bones, sliced off pieces of vegetables or gristle/fat from meat, etc.

Almost everything else gets recycled(plastics, paper, metals, glass), so my actual trash is probably MOSTLY 'food' garbage at this point.

Ah, reading the article, compost bins are available. Nice work, Seattle.

You might not want the hassle but you can usually use all of that stuff. I use bones for stock, veggies for stews, fat for rendering in other recipes and so on. I save a lot of money by just using everything whenever possible. Not going to lie, its a lot more work but its fun and you get much more flavorful stuff than store bought.

The fact that these women feel they need to keep their identities hidden when saying anything because they fear reprisals, up to and including having their pictures and addresses posted for others to use in harassing them for their expressing views, is just plain sad. It's ironic that the behavior these women are so fearful of absolutely confirms everything they're speaking out against as women gamers and game developers.

I find that reasoning flawed and one sided. It feels more like trying to head off criticism at the pass. I don't believe that any female game developer speaking up on this will automatically get threatened or should fear for their safety, that seems more than a bit dramatic. The last time people dug into "threats" to Anita and Zoe things got pretty dubious. Plenty of people posting about this issue in general have been doxxed, it's not just female developers or something. I am much more likely to give credence to something that someone stands behind.

It's fine to say you don't want your name associated with this or the potential criticism/negativity that comes from talking about a controversial issue but I don't put any stock in the safety claims. Also people seem to paint with a wide brush on harassment, I've seen what I thought was simple criticism and disagreement labeled as such.

Verno you read like a liberal blog. /argument over/for the children/not political/ Cut and paste that or something?

You like throwing around the liberal tag but much to your chagrin I'm a Republican You're the one cut and pasting things by the way, half of those links aren't even applicable to the discussion or are from dubious sources. You can google the other side of it and find even more evidence against those conclusions. I'm much more interested in peer reviewed study and climate models from actual climatologists rather than opinion puff from partisan sources. This statement from one of your own links about "scientists" opposing is pretty telling:

As of August 2012, fewer than 10 of the statements in the references for this list are part of the peer-reviewed scientific literature.

But that aside, you seem to be conflating two entirely different arguments. I am not saying man "caused global warming", if you actually read what I said you would notice I didn't even use the phrase global warming at all. It is too politically charged and frankly alarmist. I don't believe in the alarmist concept of global warming but given the volume of evidence that does show we are having an effect on increased CO2 concentration then I think its important to examine that and see how we can realistically change it with as little impact to our economy as possible. It's pretty hard to bring China into the fold on this when we are so split over ideological rather than scientific reasons.

Unlike an actual Liberal, I don't want unrealistic regulation forced on businesses but there are definitely areas where we can start to address things now rather than later.

My responsibility to my children is to not have political twats tax them to death for some bullshit regulations. Maybe you'll dig deeper when you have to pay taxes, or get your heating bill, or have kids... most do eventually wake up.

Then I think you would be on board with what I'm saying here. The economic implications of going on as if we're not having any impact are much more serious than prevention. I don't trust the liberal government to do it but I do recognize that some regulation is necessary. I would absolutely support a Republican government who is interested in tackling this issue but sadly people seem to just automatically associate any environment concerns with "LEFTIES!".

After playing for awhile I am no longer amused by the old school feel of the shared camera. The camera shifts sometimes take too long even after someone moves which gets extremely frustrating. I hope they patch it out. I get that they wanted people working together as a group but they already lock many of the rooms until you clear the enemies and the shared camera gets extremely tedious after awhile. I play with a group of RL friends and we've all changed our minds on this after the past few days. I can't even imagine trying to pub the game with it.
