Amazon’s rapid growth is driving gentrification into popular neighborhoods such as quirky, traditionally gay, Capitol Hill. But Capitol Hill is becoming ‘less gay’ and LGBTQ hate-crimes jumped from 6 in 2011 to 19 in 2012.

What are they trying to say?

This phenomena is called swarm stupidity.

They confuse correlation and causality like basically every retard in media that has an agenda does nowadays, for the sole reason to make a point about an issue they care about, but have no statistical proof for to reinforce their argumentation. I think they do this intentionally. Reaction to A vs B which is not A == B

But you can be populist in your argumentation far easier, and thus draw in far more supporters, when you forgo logic and basic journalist integrity

Christ. The AMD fanboys here are pathetic.

Developers and IHV's exist in a symbiotic relationship. The hardware is meaningless without popular titles to exploit it. And developer relations is a critical aspect of any IHV's marketing arm.

AMD fucked up. As they usually do. Buggy drivers and poor support has always driven me to avoid their hardware and the AMD fanboys attempting to do damage control are fucking amusing.

I'll tell you exactly what happened. AMD didn't see Project CARS as important. They simply didn't think the developer was important enough for them to spend any time or effort providing support.

Now it's blown up in their face and the product is more popular than their marketing weenies anticipated, they're trying to do damage control, but the plain and simple fact is this: Nvidia came to the party and provided support. AMD didn't as a consequence of their ongoing arrogance and incompetence.

Suck it up, fanboys.

Dude, I have never even owned an ATI/AMD video card, but it seems obvious to me the responsibility in on the devs to reach out and get the attention of the only two discreet GPU makers on the planet. They can't afford to sit around and not follow up for months and months on an unanswered email or whatever. If they've been calling and emailing AMD weekly with no response, then you can blame AMD, but it doesn't sound like that was the case.

I get your point, but a decent DEV would rather ask NVIDIA and INTEL which are the actual number 1 and number 2

It's fascinating to me that the X series has as many entries as it does. People keep buying it. I was bored out of my mind with X2! They are good at selling it.

They had a huge fan community in Germany which kept them afloat.. which is all but dead since rebirth (kinda ironic) ;p

On the side yes, but on the top no:
Boys
Girls


ah... you are right Even on Amazon Germany that upper bar navigation still goes to boys/girls toys.

So they didn't remove anything yet I guess. I wonder if those categories are curated by Amazon or just generated based on who bought what.

AMD having shitty drivers and slacking off with optimizations until after release.... tell me something new!

This kind of stuff is LITERALLY why I never owned more than 1 ATI GPU in my entire life.

^ this

Though I have personally had ZERO ATI/AMD GPUs in my life. Went from VLB to Matrox Millennium to several 3Dfx Voodoo variants including the first usage of SLI and then straight to GeForce and never saw any kind of reason to switch horses because ATI/AMD always appeared to be the inferior choice.
And with shit like this, any change of heart is becoming even more unlikely than it's ever been.
It's cute tho how the resident AMD fanbois are trying to defend their masters of sloppiness and laziness.

I went from Matrox Millenium to Ati Rage something, and then Voodoo 2 and to a nvidia card. Honestly can't remember what it was, a geforce something or another, with MX in the name?? Since then I had a lot of fun with Nvidia cards too (6600GT and the cult-status super hardware "Cold bug" where the GPU would not switch to 3D mode when it was below a certain temperature (for me, that temperature was 26°C, so I had to basically blow hot air with a hair-dryer at my GPU to get it to power up properly.. good times) but since then I had no problems with Nvidia cards.

IN fact I am still rocking a 670GTX and am super happy with it. Would never go ATI. That said, back when I built this system I had a nice (long) talk at the store and it basically ended up buying me a AMD Phenom II x6 1055T and a 670GTX. Had I known that many years later DX12 might actually still give me some head-room in newer games with a 6 core cpu .. hah best investment of my gamer life so far.

By the way, it's also funny people already forgot that a VERY big Publisher called EA was fuming at AMD just a few years ago when BF3 released, and AMD thought it would be a good idea to release a broken driver that had absolutely inferior performance with that game. Only 13.1 driver actually fixed that, many many months later. An issue by the way, which AMD could easily have noticed had they actually used the beta access they were given.

So yeah...

You can still sort by Boy or Girl on Amazon, but if kids toys actually becomes unsortable by gender, that would be a most stupid idea..


The option to sort by gender is gone Refresh your browser cache and you see Not just amazon.com but all amazon sites have removed it

Is this gonna be the GOTY or what!? Way more than 3 hours of gameplay content out there already. That's a dev confident about their product. Sceptics can fuck off at this hour.

Ah yes, because hype is always SUCH good advice with RPG's....

Hype is based on smart PR tricks and, like a phobia, irrational. We have 3+ hours of unedited gameplay footage for this game. Reviewers like Angry Joe have had their hands on the game already. I repeat: more than 3+ hours! And every single shot is nothing short of absolutely amazing.

But as Skyrim taught you (hopefully), never judge an open world by it's first hours of content I agree the game looks good, but there is no harm waiting until people actually dug deeply into it and some patches fixed plot stoppers and scripting issues (of which there will be no doubt hundreds.. that's the nature of open world rpg's)

And remember.. X - Rebirth also looked amazing in preview footage. Not saying that is comparable, but I remain skeptical until people here LITERALLY spam praise for this game in a 150+ post thread.. And comment on the PC controls, PC GUI and PC gameplay quality.

A terrible depiction of space. I understand the need for some theatricality, but bright orange clouds is not the way to pull it off.

Normally I'd say.. space has to be colorful but in WH40 I have to say.. space should be dark, depressing and scary as fuck. There are way too many colors in that trailer, and orange/blue is like so overused in color balance that I wonder who made that scene.. and why they didn't pay that guy more to get more creative.

Motherfucker is that ever gory! Cyclops though! Never see enough of them in CRPGs for some reason. Always loved the cyclops since the old Sinbad flick as a kid.


Holy crap, and here I thought I was the only one on the planet remembering that movie. It is nowadays super simple and weird to watch it, but that cyclops never left my mind.

Nice theory, except they are NOT illegitimate keys. CD Projekt is just trying to push people into the abysmal Galaxy client by only offering a good deal on GOG (This is why I think store, developer and publisher should never be 1 and the same...)

Except GOG is selling the game for the same price as Steam (their biggest competitor). And again, Witcher 3 does not require Galaxy.

Yeah, but you can buy keys for W3 for 30€ on ebay. *hint*

Saying that to myself for years now.. sigh but Intel's new CPU looks vastly superior.. only ATI GPU's seem very good. Assuming HBM (3d memory) is actually not overpriced to all hells.

Looks like that regional pricing isn't all it's supposed to be...or at least I'm guessing that's where the illegitimate keys are coming from.

Ps.: To me this is absolutely transparent false flag of CD Projekt. Reselling keys is not illegal, nor is undercutting the braindead publisher that thinks it has more power than a digital store.

so is my 980 GTX capable of handling all DX12 specifications or not? they started asking that question, and then didn't really answer it, at least not that i saw.

This is why I wonder at people buying GPU's right now. They NEVER said 970/980 is going to fully Support DX12 and beyond (dx 12.1/dx12.2

4. Facebook for the poor May 5, 2015, 02:38 eRe4s3r
 
Facebook is literally enforcing an Internet for the poor, as in websites made for the poor, while the actual Internet (99% of which is high BW) will remain for the paying customers.

Can't deny that this is ingenious but any sane government would be well advised to ban this. All Facebook tries here is to break into new markets with this offer, while cutting everyone else out of access to this.

Is that really helping the poor? Most in-depth knowledge is on youtube, you want to see how a well is built, farming hints, building help? You look it up on youtube. But not those poor.
