Getting back on topic, this reminds me of the Slot 1 era debacles.

Forget Slot 1. Look at LGA 775, you could start out with a launch Core 2 Duo E6400 and end up with a Q9500 or better years later. That's not possible with BGA. I have even swapped motherboards in the same generation when I wanted some specific features or had tech issues.

Actually I've only ever seen you blame democrats. Saying that you blame republicans because people correctly label you biased and actually doing more than lip service in assigning blame are different matters. You're a broken record with the antagonistic leftie liberal crap and it's why people dismiss you out of hand. No one is going to take you or your position seriously if you can't meet them halfway and do the same without being insulting. It's really endemic of the problems down there in general, confrontational all or nothing politics with no room for reasonable people and rational thoughts.

(No referral links) That's an interesting book from a former Windows engineer who talks about how their entire business model is based on forcing licenses on businesses and the extreme lengths they go to do it. The Windows team was often forced to roll out new features and designs based entirely on sales targets. This sounds like they've dialed that up to 11.

Help me out here - I think I understand the basics of 'ping' but I may be oversimplifying it. A ping of 250 is actually 250 milliseconds, or one full quarter of a second. In other words, as I understand it, with that ping you would have to conceivably be aiming where your opponent will be in a quarter second from when you fire. Is that correct? A bit of a noob question I know but being a singleplayer gamer my whole life I have never really paid much attention to multiplayer idioms. Never really paid much attention to networking at all until only recently.

In laymans terms yes, there's a lot more to it but that's about the gist. It depends on the game and its net code too. A lot of games have compensation in the netcode to equalize things for console players who typically have shared connections and don't know how to shape their own traffic at home. Some FPS games like Quake and Counterstrike let the server and client tweak to an insane degree. Generally you'll enjoy the experience more with a lower ping. I have no clue why anyone would think they deserve a playable experience in an MMOFPS with anything above 150ms.

But whatever. You dont get it, don't wanna get it, and I stopped caring enough to help you understand my look on it.

I don't need to understand your look, it doesn't make any sense. If you want more non-violent takedown options then bitch about that instead of whining that the game railroads you morally when it gives you plenty of choice in the context of the story.

Hey Dades, some people actually finish reading an entire message before replying to them. A fundamental addition to that part you quoted sounded:

"I'm fine with giving these two options, I'm just horrified if they make the "good guy" gameplay so goddamn boring and linear."

When you ramble on and on people will skim your shit. Non-violent is boring and linear now? It is way more challenging and tense to avoid combat scenarios in Dishonored. No one said anything about a good guy or bad guy, that's your own dimwitted morals, the game warns you that you can walk a darker path. It doesn't say anything about right or wrong.

And then it also gave this unfathomably stupid option not to kill enemies

Non-violent options are so stupid, let's just murder death kill everyone, that's what assassins do after all Rolleyes

This wouldn't be the Blue's News comment section if people didn't complain about literally everything.

He wasn't complaining that they are supporting the game if you two numbskulls had bothered to read what he said, it was the how and that does matter. Huge balance swings and updates that are so frequent that they aren't even properly tested tend to hurt multiplayer communities more than they help.

The triple cell drives so far have not been reliable, so I'd just stick with a Sandforce 2 SATA3 drive for now.

Sandforce 2 ssds were the buggiest this generation, they only got sorted out in the past six months. I still don't trust them, they had so many controller and firmware issues. Intel usually beats the piss of their third party controllers to catch all problems and even their Sandforce 2 drives had major problems.

Like I said, feel free to feel all superior because your tastes in games, music, movies, whatever is so much more sophisticated (even though it really isn't. Sorry). I have heard this age-old baseless haughtiness for years of being a musician because if you like music genre 'X' then you are an idiot or if you don't think genre 'Y' is crap then clearly you don't know good music and yadda yadda yadda, blah blah blah. Arrogance through self-attributed superiority isn't anything new; it's as old as the hills. I bet cavemen probably belittled the other cavemen who liked the simple, colorful cave paintings.

I don't have to feel superior to think that something is just garbage. I guess no one is allowed to complain about anything ever again because someone else might like it and their taste is just as valid as yours. Everything is subjective and we all make those judgements, conscious or unconsciously. Not like feigned detachment is another form of faux superiority or anything either!

Verno and Creston always make good points; it's others who seem to go out of their way to be derisive of gamers who dare to enjoy CoD.

If they aren't worthy of derision than who the fuck is? The nobility of man is to aspire always to greater heights, not descend into the morass of the lowest common denominator. Should people be applauded for popularizing Honey Boo Boo and Jerry Springer? America - and a lot of the rest of the world - is turning into an Idiocracy. That is not something to aspire to or applaud. And games like CoD are indicative of that sort of mentality. So yes, for anyone who aspires to more, those sorts of games should be met with a hail of derision.

You got it. I may be a miserable sonuvabitch but I don't subscribe to the backpatting, mollycoddling, bracelet wearing, everyone is a unique and special person modern culture crap. There are a lot of idiots out there and they have bad fucking taste in many different things and corporations chase them for every buck in their wallet.

Idiots with bad taste are the reason that modern horror movies are torture porn or found footage bullshit. Bad music is no longer mocked but openly celebrated in an orgy of advertising campaigns and Call of Duty gets 20 versions while Quake gets a handful. I might not be able to eradicate bad taste but I sure as hell can make fun of it.

Whew I've been saving that one up for awhile

That's probably the most convincing argument to be made about why peoples' lack of discriminating tastes are up for criticism. However, publishers basically know (THQ and EA learned it the hard way with Homefront and Medal of Honor respectively) that trying to make a "CoD-killer" game only yields a sub-par clone without an identity of its own that will end up a costly and forgettable commercial flop.

Publishers are well known for learning from their mistakes after all.

Homefront was supposed to be a kickass multiplayer FPS but they retooled it to please THQ who wanted something to appeal to Call of Duty players. They didn't learn anything from Homefront, it sold 2 million units despite being fucking terrible. Someone is working on Homefront 2, assuming THQ survives long enough to publish it! EA didn't learn anything from Medal of Honor, they made a sequel immediately after and have started down the path of turning Battlefield into it.

Maybe Activision wouldn't work on other games, they seem to hate risk and love churning butter every year. All the same I'd like the industry not to be a desolate wasteland once people burn out on it like they do with every game that overstays its welcome.

I should probably cheer it on though, the industry financials keep tanking and maybe what we need is a little wildfire to cleanse the forest. It would be nice to see someone other than indie devs sack up and make an original game.
