Both sides make good points about the blocksize limit, so you're right, it's going to be an interesting couple of months.

Actually the side that doesn't want to increase it is 5 (large = 90% of calculation power) chinese miners who can't handle that increased blocksize thanks to China's broken as fuck Internet.. meaning that the "Great Chinese Firewall" is the reason Bitcoin is dead.

And the reason why BitCoin XT is the future, Bitcoin vanilla is run into the ground by the devs that the original dev made admins without vetting them beforehand... huge mistake that.

Thing is I use it (Windows 10 Enterprise LTSB pilfered from a client who didn't want it ,P) on my media PC for months now and have zero problems too... maybe just dumb luck. And LTSB comes without all the spying crap.. couldn't be happier really. Free OS (although maybe not in the way MS intended...)
I guess the massive gap between competence levels cause these statements. What you say is completely wrong. LTSB is also spying a lot. Its just a little less effort to turn it off.

There is a vast difference between stuff you can disable (which is what ye obviously always have to do with Windows....) and stuff you have to uninstall the hard way (which is definitely not something you have to do with Enterprise LTSB, as it comes without all the windows applications that do in fact spy on you REGARDLESS of what you set in policies, specifically Windows Defender is the 1 thing you do in fact have to uninstall the hard way if you accidentally let it rummage through your stuff).

policies are something of a sore point with Windows 10 but it takes what, 60 seconds to delete all the tasks that you don't want... if you have a list ,) To me that is not a "little" less effort It's a lot effort saved by just getting a version that doesn't unpatch your policy edits and installs crapware "features" by default no matter what you set, with no way to stop it. LTSB is only version that allows you to prevent massive future changes to the OS that you might not want.

And btw, you can assume that I read MDL at length before going this route.

So the headline is intentionally confusing then... that I need W10 for W10 exclusive features is clearly not the same as "CPU's requiring W10"

MS has absolutely ZERO influence what CPU is supported or not, that's all chipset drivers and UEFI, none of which MS has any control over, and it's literally impossible for MS to break a x86 cpu compatible with x86 applications, which Windows 7/8 are.... So wtf is this news even talking about?

Mass murderer and terrorist or rebel leader... that is the question Depends on which side of the cold war you were on in this case. Quite ballsy to sue

And as for that Netflix news, that's why TV show and movie piracy is on an all time high

It is great to see a company scoop up all the money left on the ground by companies like CCP and the never to be finished greatest scam ever Star Citizen.

God speed to you Elite team! You earned my respect and my money!


The joke is EVE could have been one of the strongest space games in the market had CCP not squandered it

600 for the Oculus Rift is too much already. After postage & taxes it will cost as much as 800$ to import it here. For that kind of money I can buy another GTX970 and an awesome 1440p monitor...Goddamn it...Im like the prime consumer for this kind of thing, and I can't afford it.

For that kind of money you can actually buy a state of the art 6gb 980TI ,) If you wanted it (which is superior to SLI in every way)

The game has been out for years on PS3. All they did for PC was make higher res textures and make sure it runs at 60fps.

So yes, it's been out. And this is simply an improvement.

Don't try to get me on the born last night thing. It isn't out on the PC and we don't know how good the port is, which is the key. That is what day one reviews are for. Don't tell me otherwise. That's the rule man. That is why you don't see it on the list. If it gets good WoM it will show up the following.

Do we really need to say that you should never pre-order, EVER?

That said, you can grab it when it's out on steam, put a watch-clock near-by set that to 1 hour just to be safe and test whether the port works for you or not, and if not, refund it. Easy and painless.

Grim Dawn has its hooks in me. Excellent game I picked up in the steam Xmas sale due to someone recommending it here. Started playing a few days ago and time has ceased to matter to me in the only way a pooter game can do that.

How does it compare to others in the genre: D3, TL2, PoE?

This is still just EA impressions...

It's the offline sister of PoE basically. Combat and loot is kinda meh (You find tons of stuff you can't use when you find it) the quest system is also kinda meh, because it doesn't tell you how to get to where you need to go (the far out overland map is completely useless, and there is no overlay map like in D3 where quest objectives and ENTRANCES related to those quests are marked after a while of exploring, all you get is a tiny minimap or a huge minimap, no in-between) if you played D3 with the overlay map on constantly you will absolutely hate this way of doing things

As for combat, it feels ok, it's very chaotic and doesn't really feel beefy or connected, maybe worse, you hate terrain collisions with projectile weapons, you gonna HATE Grim Dawn to the core. Every object on the map counts as LOS block with a projectile weapon. So forests or camp sites = total nightmare to hit anything. And speaking of hitting things, you like your big energy using skills having a MISS chance that increases the greater level difference is? Yeah... I don't

Pathfinding is also kinda rough, enemies are good to great actually, they will find you in the weirdest situations, sometimes even unexpected, but it's your own pathfinding that's the problem. Happened to me often that I get stuck in terrain meshes.. aside that, crafting, character building is top notch. Fair warning though, if you hated the legendary ingredient grind in D3 you will hate it in Grim Dawn as well


TL;DR if you liked Titan Quest you will like this.

And personally, I like it too. But whenever I play grim Dawn I just wish there'd be a new D3 expansion. You just don't get the same feeling when a legendary or set drops that you do in D3. And the game doesn't really "do" the whole fluffy FX deal for loot and money. Meaning it still feels very rough. Maybe that will be improved til release.

Also maybe this is an hilarious last line, but I think the game is too dark and grimy.. lmao, yes, exactly the opposite problem of D3 pre-expansion.

The controller comment is especially hilarious because "fast" is very relative when you hold a controller and a thumb stick... vs pin-point 0 latency laser accurate pointer that is, the mouse and keyboard config. Meaning it's likely a bog standard arcade shooter set at snails pace to not make the controller players cry.

Either way, don't expect much from it.. games like this are fun for 2 to 4 hours, then you've seen it all and/or played through... but we'll see when it's released. Maybe it isn't a bog standard boring arcade shooter after all... one thing though, if it uses the god awful ID Tech 5 engine with 50gb world textures that all look like shit up-close then I am not gonna bother
