Darn; I was hoping for a fix for Half-Life: Source. My weapons are still invisible!

Driver issue? Using custom commands/mods? Using multi-core rendering?

2. Re: BioWare: Console is "the Past" Jul 15, 2010, 00:22 ForgedReality
 
I think the title of this news post is a little misleading.

I don't believe he meant "Consoles are the past," but rather, "in the past, we saw the future as on consoles." Consoles are still a major player, but they're really just a casual gamer's pathway into the hobby. There is more staying power on PC, since that's where all the advancements are made, and, in fact, that is where the games are made.

How about some actual gameplay showing physics, damage, HUD, menus, etc..

If it's anything like the previous game, there is no damage or physics to speak of.

This game is most likely going to be shit.

edit - After having watched the trailer... holy shit. This game is hideous. And without traffic, it's going to be just as empty, soulless, boring, and unfinished-feeling as the first one.

And I wish the game would be able to remember my last search filter, as used to be since always.
Yeah dude. Since at least the latest updates, it doesn't do this anymore. It used to, because I didn't used to have to keep filtering by under 100 ping and "has users playing." What the fuck did they break?!

I don't recall the bit about the favorites removal issue, but I guess I've never tried to remove a favorite, as I don't really use that tab all that much.

re: Google

Seriously? Why is everyone making a huge deal out of this? It's non-news. I mean, really, who cares if some unencrypted wireless networks are detected by Google. NOBODY CAN DO ANYTHING WITH THAT INFORMATION, ASIDE FROM IDLE OUTSIDE YOUR HOUSE AND USE YOUR INTERNET FROM THEIR LAPTOP.

It feels like some people have some kind of agenda and stand to benefit somehow from blowing shit like this way out of proportion in an effort to sow fear and ignorance.

This is not some severe security issue. It's not as if someone stole your CC# and SSN. It's the names of unsecured wireless networks. Big fucking deal. Can we please stop talking about it now?

If Google was going to do anything with it, it probably relates to their plans for some new network rollout, and they might have wanted to know what areas would benefit most from it.

But seriously, even if you DO have an unsecured wireless network, nobody is going to hack into your computer with it. It's no more dangerous for Google to have collected the information than for your neighbors to see your wireless signal broadcasting. It's not like they BROKE INTO YOUR HOME and STOLE THE INFORMATION. It's broadcasting itself already. Chill the fuck out!

There seems to be a bug in the Steam client. It just made me download 3.1GB of data for the TF2 update.
Are you sure it actually downloaded that much? The download meter on mine (or whatever it's called) scared me when I saw it showing 8GB to be downloaded. I was relieved to see that it started at 7.5GB, so it's only downloading about 500MB.

Perhaps they're using the same algorithm Apple used to calculate the signal strength on the iPhone.
Yes, it actually downloaded that much. I was looking on the Steam Forums yesterday and apparently I wasn't the only person with the problem. Steam apparently decided a number of people needed to re-download TF2 assets they already had.

No it doesn't. It showed I needed to download around 8 gb, too. This was after I quit the client because the update started fucking up and pausing itself. I restarted Steam, and then the total size went from like 400mb or something (I don't actually remember what it was, just that it was a lot smaller) to that 8gb number, which I'm assuming is the total size of TF2 installed for some reason. It also started somewhat close to the end.

And there is NO WAY I could download 8gb of data in such a short amount of time.

I wish I could get paid mad money to do nothing other than make baseless predictions and talk out my ass in favor of any product whose creators pay me enough to promote.

Damn, industry analysts must have the easiest jobs in the world.

No offense, but how hard is it to figure out they're global? You see an announcement saying some dude got a wrench, you check the scoreboard to see what team the guy is in, but he's not even on the server... "Oh, I get it..."

WoW still looks good? WoW never looked good.

To each his own. This argument reminds me of all the people saying how Team Fortress 2 looks like shit, because of the cartoon art direction.

Not the same thing. TF2 has a much higher poly count, much higher texture resolution, much higher particle cap, etc. I can understand WHY WoW looks so ugly, but that doesn't mean I have to like it.

Opera is a decent browser, but they really REALLY need to fix their compliance issues. It's really annoying when it completely renders web pages wrong. Also, it doesn't support extensions like Firefox.

re batteries:
Microsoft's "InstaLoad" technology, which the company says it has patented and will license to device manufacturers, seems poised to end an everyday source of frustration.
In other words, pandering to stupid people.

Honestly. If it doesn't say + and -, the worst that's going to happen is the device doesn't turn on if the batteries are put in wrong. There isn't enough juice from those things to damage it. So you either use common sense and do it right the first time, or if you're an idiot, just flip them around. This is a useless, needless product, and all it would do is serve to help stupid people remain stupid.
