Porn. Oh, I misread, I thought you wondered what the guy was looking at. Not that it matters, it was porn in both cases.


So he was walking around bent over? No wonder the security people didn't see him!

No, the security people were watching and making porn from all the strip searches.

That's great and all, Valve, but could you now revert the changes to Riki and Phantom Lancer? Riki is a little more annoying with his level 1 invisibility and more effective blink, but PL is entirely too OP now. It seems as though all the changes you're making is to make the game more accessible (xp changes to higher level heroes killed, high-ground fountains, jungle and bot lane changes, etc.), but it's really ruining the gameplay.

If you could actually find any 970s. Well, you can find EVGA, who has jacked up coolers I guess, but think I'll pass and wait for either the MSI OC or Asus Strix to come back into stock. Kind of looking like 2-3 weeks on certain sites.

Just keep F5ing this page: http://www.nowinstock.net/computers/videocards/nvidia/gtx980/

The Gigabyte G1 is definitely the one to get if you want a 980, however, I'd wait 2-3 months for the full-blown high end part due out around that time. Just watch. It might be the 980ti, but it's going to blow these things completely away.

Or so say the rumors, but much of the information on the 900 series was accurate a month or so prior to launch, so I'm inclined to believe (hope) the high end card is out very soon.

I've always sworn by Western Digital. Most of my drives are of that brand. Never EVER had an issue, and I currently have 8 hard drives in my system, many of which more than 10 years old. I have two smaller ones (20.5gb and 50gb or something) no longer attached to my system as I have moved all their data off onto larger drives, but those also still work flawlessly.

Seagate used to be slightly better, but still nowhere near as good as WD. Then they bought Maxtor, and their quality, understandably, sharply dropped off. I think I have one Seagate drive because it was a good deal at the time, but I would certainly not recommend the brand.

I also always try to buy "Enterprise" class drives whenever possible. Highest tier I can get my hands on, not the budget models, for sure. Data integrity is a pretty damned important aspect of any system, and there's no reason to skimp in that regard.

The first person "walk around" mod for GTA4 was pretty cool, so if they add this it should be fun.
And if they don't, someone else will.

Why the fuck does Amazon keep making Kindles anyway? Half the apps in the store don't even work properly on Kindles for whatever reason. You ever read app reviews? Most of the people complaining that it doesn't work are like "FIX UR FKN APP!!!!!!!!!1111111 IT DUZNT EVN WERK! -kindle fire"

Well, that sure would be a damn sight more varied than the cheese wedges we have now from all the ships they've shown thus far...

So hard to decide if I should upgrade from a 770 to a 970. The performance increase is okay, but the TDP sweetens the deal. 230W->145W

If I were you, I'd wait until probably next year for the 20nm refresh. Hell, I've waited all this time with a 580, and it's definitely time, but a 770? You'll hardly notice.

My only gripe is them selling paint jobs. Is that new, or had it been there before and I just missed it?

Other than that, it's all good...

They've been selling those for a while now, and they are only cosmetics. I am sure they will have sales on packs of those or get them as rewards in game etc.
They don't bother me as much as the different ship variants for $100+ for that other space game

Imagine if they did what Valve does and created a marketplace where players could submit content, and the devs take a small cut from each sale. That would be amazing. The market is already there. They could even implement some kind of system that mirrors the existing in-game market that allows the price of things to fluctuate automatically based upon demand, should the content creator set it up that way, and only allow a certain number of the items to be allowed into the market, or something like that.

If you were a good enough artist/modeler/etc, you could easily make back the money you put into the game (and then some), while helping out the developers as well. Why haven't they done this already?

Guys, what about this?

Gigabyte G1 SOC

looks nice, i wish you could achieve these temps in a "blower" fan config cause blowers are much better for SLI/xfire configs, i have a bunch of these 3x fan gigabyte 280x's and you can't xfire with them very well, the top one always gets way too hot, even when well-spaced and well ventilated.

i will be getting on of these, or waiting for possibly the evga aftermarket cooler. will not buy stock, as they've already shown that the 980 self-throttles to keep below 85 degrees. fuck that.

Of course, it costs considerably more than the reference design, and, of course, it's already sold out.

MSI 980 G1 on Amazon

I do like the two 8 pin connectors, leaving room for more voltage should you need it when you overclock beyond its factory overclock. This looks like the one to get for me, although, I also like Asus's offering.

Thinking of getting in on the 980. That will be a pretty impressive upgrade from my aging 3gb 580, which was $700 at the time it came out, and it's like double the power draw.

But the 28nm... I dunno. Should I buy now so I can play GTA5, or wait until the 20nm variants come through? OR buy now, then sell when the new ones arrive...?

If only it wasn't all pixelated. Blow that up and it will look like dookie. Not sure how he could have done that without having vectorized text either. Why would you rasterize it in the first place?

Also, I'm pretty sure earlier versions had Babylon 5 but I don't see it here now. Am I crazy? :\

*also, inverted Y for life! (so furious to games that just omit the feature, ie. controlling drones or some shit, it's Y normal, and there's no option to change it, it's like pretending that %10 of gamers just don't exist.)

That's so goddamned insane. There must be a name for this mental illness from which some people suffer. Seriously, why not just switch X as well? If you're gonna "push" in a direction, why not at least be consistent with it?

2 reasons:

#1: logic

when i look up i tilt my head back, i don't "push my eyes up". similarly i tilt my head forward when i look down, i'm not "pushing my eyes down"

#2 superior muscle mechanics

in most FPS games, bursting with an automatic weapon kicks the barrel up, thereby needing downward compensation to keep the gun level.

if you are compensating by pushing the mouse up, you're extending your fingers away from the base plant of the bottom of your palm, where you have less fine control over mouse movements, because your grip is now with extended fingers. worst case you need to move the base of your palm up slightly on the mousepad to achieve this, again losing control.

conversely, by pulling the mouse toward your palm is a more natural movement, you do not have to lift your palm base, and your fingers are not over extended. mechanically i'd argue that this system provides better concrete control. weather you're better or worse with it is a totally different matter, i'm just talking logistically, as if it were a robot hand.

also worth keeping in mind that most FPS games have you needing to look up in-game more often than down. you're rarely having to look at your feet, or down the side of a cliff, at least compared to how often you have to look up above a crate, ladder, catwalk, building etc.

Wait you make it sound like you look up by pushing the mouse up. I thought the reverse was true with inverted Y, whereby you push up on the end of a balance beam where the fulcrum makes the other end go down, or as if you're up against a wall, pushing up in order to move yourself down. Does one of us have it backward? I push down to look down, as in your example of compensating for gun recoil. Did I read all that totally wrong?
