I totally agree, I can't believe how one dimensional some of the comments are. Police have a tough job, they deserve their compensation and some respect for the things most people won't face in their lifetimes. That being said, they are not above reproach and people totally have a right to discuss this stuff, if for no other reason than to learn when they're right or wrong.

If you had lead with that I don't think anyone would've had an issue either.

News Comments > Grand Theft Auto V NVIDIA Tweak Guide
22. Re: Grand Theft Auto V NVIDIA Tweak Guide Apr 22, 2015, 15:02 Verno
 
Interesting stuff. Some reviews show 1440p everything maxed and fxaa running at an average of 50 to 60 fps on a gtx 970. The comments here seem to show that may not be the case. My 670s sli usually perform like a single 970 so your comments a very useful to me. That being said, vram on the 670 will prob hurt my performance. Was going to hold out for Pascale gpus and get the Acer HB270HU this spring or summer. Now I'm secretly hoping the 980ti arrives asap to drop prices of anything below it. Here, the 970s went from $400 to $440 Canadian cause the dollar tanked along with oil prices.

I had to send my first XB270HU back due to backlight bleed, it was severe and distracting. The replacement has been fine though. Don't order that from Newegg by the way, restocking/etc is annoying.

You pretty much said that in your post though:

Are you a Police Officer? Then I kindly ask all of you to SHUT THE FUCK UP. Unless you have the badge you have NOTHING to offer the conversation either way. So quit trying to be a armchair officer until you've lived the life.

That's kind of a roundabout way of saying people can't discuss something unless they've experienced it firsthand which is essentially saying you can't criticize or praise cops unless you've been one.

You can get mad at me too if you want but its really dangerous logic and deserved to be called out. I'm sure we've all made posts where we criticized one job or another despite not having worked it, yourself included. I don't really agree with NKD, he is too dramatic and ignores the day to day stuff in favor of headlines but to be fair your response here was super aggressive and I wouldn't take it well either.

I think that many of us have a password that we use for all of our throw-away accounts. I was referring to accounts that this person would not want someone else to get into. Would you use the same credentials on you email, bank, paypal, credit cards, and Steam accounts? That's what I'm talking about. At the very least, the email account that the other accounts are linked to should have a unique and complex password.

People should just use a password manager for this stuff, shared passwords are extremely risky these days.

News Comments > Heroes of the Storm in June
23. Re: Heroes of the Storm in June Apr 21, 2015, 09:58 Verno
 
Although I have spent money on the game, there are plenty of ways to earn gold in game to purchase heroes. I do not regret the money I've spent, but I know others don't have a lot of money. No money is needed. Like Hearthstone, you can complete daily quests to earn gold and even leveling up your heroes and your man avatar earns gold.

Opposite for me, I like this game but I'm not a fan of the business model or rather I think it needs tweaking to be more like Dota 2.

That wouldn't be us, would it

Guess not

A CMS wouldn't be a bad idea, gotta be easier than cobbling everything with Frontpage. I'm brushing up on my CSS and JS, I'm going to take a crack at a demo page soon as a little project.

PC port was excellent, shame we never got the original more open Silent Hill style game they had been demoing a long time ago.

I can't say I've been impressed with GTA Online either. A seemingly never ending series of loading screens and frustration. When you get a stable session its great but man there is a lot of BS in between.

News Comments > New Mass Effect Details?
5. Re: New Mass Effect Details? Apr 18, 2015, 17:45 Verno
 
That would be fine with me. I just want the universe from Mass Effect 1 again without procedurally generated planets. Mass Effect 1 actually felt like a space opera with some shooter sections, ME2 and ME3 just felt like corridor shooters. I know a lot of it was console limitations so I'm hopeful with the revised specs we see some more interesting stuff this time. ME1 had wonky mechanics and annoying planets but it needed revision, not a total reinvention. ME2 had its high points (characters and writing mainly) but I felt like they went too far. ME3 was a nice in between but still needed bigger levels and more open exploration IMO.

So trying to move this back on track and hit the magical 300 post count legitimately, anyone have some GTA Online money tips? Because everything is crazy expensive and I'm constantly broke. Do the Heists have any requirements? I started a new profile/character with the PC version.

I reported the first post (not the second, guess he's got multiple fans) because it was just pointless abuse and while much of this thread hasn't been a happy place, I felt it crossed the line. It was certainly a heck of a lot more than calling someone a douche and treating those posts as remotely the same is unreasonable - as he knows perfectly well.

Krovven has consistently been rude or unnecessarily aggressive and he deserves to be called out on it by anyone. This is not a one time thing, this is not a few posters, this is pattern and he just comes across as incredibly childish - an insult he's oddly attached to considering his love of mindless insults.

Yeah, I think Blue is remarkably patient all things considered. I would've counted myself lucky and moved on instead of trying to shift the blame. That sort of consistent behavior is banworthy on any other forum and I know because I frequent more than a few and see the bad apples get tossed. There isn't even active moderation here, its completely reactive and based on user reports. Blue doesn't read every post or thread so sometimes people get away with one thing while another user doesn't because it got reported. If Blue ever nominates a few mods to clean things up then some of you will quickly realize what other forums are run like and just how good you've had it all along.

Anyways whatever, we should all crew up and take out frustrations in game. Much more fun that way

Seems more like a case of reach exceeding grasp. Pillars at least has a lot fewer core problems than Wasteland, a game which was most definitely not ready at release.

Wastelands balance problems are more severe IMO. I enjoyed it for the story and some of the side content but Pillars is more interesting. I do agree about the level cap considering some of the loot you get can last forever so you really need to be invested in the story once you lose those progression tools.

Been really enjoying this, I just wish they would rebalance Ranger a bit since it seems kinda useless.

After spending some time with it I've concluded the game is extremely CPU dependent, even a mild OC on my 2500k makes a massive difference in framerate while swapping GPUs had little effect on performance. It's a good port overall but it feels like it could still use some optimization to offload more to the GPU, mine doesn't even max utilization sometimes. Anyone who is looking to increase performance for this game is probably better off upgrading their CPU rather than their GPU.

I notice a major frame drop when using the MP3 radio station while the action replay functionality is enabled.

Hmm I'll look into that when I get home, thanks for the heads up.

I have been that guy inside that car more than once and it is not fun. I don't even like to drive anymore. Too many people are on cell phones and crap now.

Yeah it drives me nuts when I see people in my rearview whose heads are staring down into their lap while we're driving at 60-75mph. I've never understood the driving/texting thing, listen to music or whatever you can do without distracting yourself and putting everyone in danger. I wish there was a mandatory licensing thing where you had visit the car crash subreddit so people could see what happens when they fuck around too much in the car.
