You know what'd be a great idea? Let's put it on fucking WINDOWS 8! It's modern!

Or a modern Linux kernel based OS that has successfully passed an NSA audit.

You mean a kernel that's full of NSA backdoors and known but withheld vulnerabilities?

It's like Battlestar Galactica. They were using corded hand telephones and unnetworked systems to foil the cylons. Let's see the Russians try to hack vacuum tube technology.

And you think there isn't a cylon in each of these underground facilities? ^^ Human based security is the worst security when you can't tell who is what and from where.

Well, they seem to have nailed the car performance and handling if nothing else... And its pretty much all that matters to me. Graphics have been fine enough for a LONG LONG time.

Cars usually don't "bump,bump,bump" when driving down a decline.. so no, their physics are not up to snuff.. no correct 4 point suspension modeling

"Theory that buried garbage disappears is debunked."

Theory? Umm, modern science proves that MOST garbage DOES decompose and essentially "disappear" if you leave it in the ground long enough. So a bunch of plastic game cartridges didn't disappear, and that somehow translates to being the rule for ALL buried garbage, huh? Wow. Sad. Some elementary level schooling should be able to help you with that.

Most garbage is in fact, plastic.. which does not decompose. But aside that, you totally did not get the joke

They dug in a landfill for stuff that nobody with a brain doubted was there to begin with. To prove something.... namely that it's there. What a monumental waste of money

Internet Expressions....

You can't prevent evolution of language, and fact is the internet is the place for short-hand and nonsense.....


You mean de-evolution. Wasting away again in Derparitaville.


No such thing as de-evolution Evolution is not good or bad, it's a progress that all of nature sticks to. Trying to stop that is like trying to stop the earth from spinning.

Point being, derp ville is gonna be a major FAIL Since you'll be in it to, along with everyone else. At least as long as you use the Internet as much as you do ;p (And I don't exclude me from this) still, using wtf or ftw is not a bad thing imo. Given that you can know the meaning from the context of the sentence...

If you think Internet slang is bad, you never heard youth slang nowadays. But then, I am sure that's what all "old gits" say about youth slang.

Well, I reckon that's the end of the Dark Souls franchise.

Well, three solid games in a series is about as good as you can ever hope, I guess.

If by solid game you mean 2 games that are abysmal console ports ...

You may say what you want about the game, but for something made in assembler, in just 5 weeks from first line of code to release.... this is talked about a remarkable lot 30 years later ;p

Eight-character passwordsówhen randomly generated and containing a mix of numbers, symbols, and upper- and lower-case lettersócan take months or years to crack

Uhuh... and these guys are working at an University? If you don't get my jab, the time it takes to crack a 8 char password is a lot less than 1 day.... if you spend 100$ and buy yourself a few Amazon cloud computing slots. Or maybe you just got a lot of AMD gpu's laying around.

This looks cool. It's too bad it's not going to make it. I'm surprised it won't. It seems to have done a lot of things right for a successful KS:
- playable alpha
- established developer
- unique IP
- guns, lots of guns

I think we'll probably see this regardless as the developer probably can come up with alternative funding.

Maybe people want more of an ARPG nowadays... even if it has guns.... and the intro video as usual, does not say what the hell they need the money for.

The Pipboy is a great idea if you streamline the physical design. Like an flexible LED quarterback sleeve.

The problem is always the radiation... it's neat it can read radiation levels but the real question is can it survive radiation levels in space, and still function? Because that's literally what the main problem is with stuff you take outside your space-ship. Radiation would insta fry consumer electronics.

Not gonna play D:OS anymore, already spoiled 20% of the game for myself, and that is as far as I'll go

Still more interested in D:OS for the editor, rather than the game though.

TotalBiscuit and his $3000 PC said it was an acceptable port and ran without issue.

Which just goes to show, never pre-order anything. At least if you have this issue, Steam can't refuse a refund.

Temporary fixes including gems like "switching off your screen" "disconnect HDMI" "Edit EDID information" or .. why not simply ask for a refund?

How does stuff like this get through Q&A ... and in a game that was delayed for months to make a "better port" ... haha

That's what you get when the FCC chairmen is a lobby shill that works for cable companies who only got the job because he bribed Obama during election season. Fucking best democracy money can buy = THE USA.

Enjoy your pseudo internet, while the rest of the world advances.

The sandboxing in crome does not provide extra security.... it's snakeoil pr bullshit... so Firefox it is.

(By the way, running a browser in a real sandbox only protects you if you RESET the sandbox after use, and when you do that, it does add to your security indeed). But you pay the price for that with whatever security holes the sandbox has. And they have holes like any other software....

Well, true, but since so few people run browsers in sandboxes, it's much less likely that hackers are coding for that. You get a lot more return on investment exploiting holes in the browsers than holes in the sandbox.

You know what boggles me, why do these browsers don't ship "within a sandbox" to begin with? They can easily bundle with a preconfigured sandboxie.... That way, first setup and bookmark/lastpass etc get saved when you say so, And any change to the browser after that gets blocked... would solve so many issues. (as long as it is user friendly) Sandboxie most certainly is not user friendly ;p

I'm using Sandboxie, it seems robust enough to stop malware is there a better alternative? Granted I'm aware that if a user is dumb enough to download an .exe and run it outside the sandbox then all bets are off.

No better alternative, no (for browsing, anyway). But as with all things, a sandbox does not protect you if you don't completely wipe it after you quit it (ie, auto reset, and it only loads a known-safe-config) but you have to be careful if you allow things to run within a sandbox that you are not sure about. Sandboxes prevent permanent changes, but they do not prevent someone copying your steam guard protection file and sending it, for example. Unless you severly restrict what applications can do in the sandbox (which you should!).

If you set a sandbox up correctly, then it is still the best security you can have. And more importantly, it solves at least the problem of trojan or virus hijacking your pc.

It's not a be all and end all of security though. Much better than any AV.

Sandbox + good firewall and you are set.. imo
