Eventually cable companies will figure out that the internet is a video service.

Yup, and now we'll start getting hosed by those same cable companies when they raise their broadband prices to compensate for their loses of channel/movie package subscriptions. If you have just a broadband subscription, then your pricing will be X (higher), but if you subscribe to both broadband AND channel/movie package, then your internet pricing will be X (lower). Unless they are already doing this (?). I probably shouldn't post that idea.

Congrats Almost Human!!

Cool! I may have to check it out, but it depends on the price, as it may not be worth already owning it for the PC. /shrug

Pretty impressive the way it processes the skin, lips, and hair detail and shading, but not quite uncanny yet.

But how far down the road and at what level will us gamers being enjoying all these capabilities of DX12, as consoles will certainly slow this implementation way down, unless PC becomes the primary port for games. HAHAAH, yeah right!!!! I say 4 to 6 years before we see all this fully implemented into games and running on a single video card (GTX 2180).

Character detail and animation was 'very' impressive in Crysis 3, the best I've ever seen in a FPS to date.

Great to see Rock* continuing to support the PC release. Keep the patches coming, as there is still much to fix.

The mechanics of online matching, connecting with friends and/or crew members is so unintuitive and buggy. And getting launched into a different server from your friends/crew members after completing a mission drives me crazy!

Well each to their own, right?

A good friend of mine loved the game so much he played through it twice. Me, well I got 'maybe' 25% through, but for some reason, that I can't put my finger on, it didn't hold my interest enough to keep playing and/or finish it.

Maybe I'll revisit it at some point, but after playing GTA V, not probable.

Agreed. GTA V is what I hoped Watched Dogs would have been. The scope of Watch Dogs was good and the game had a lot of good aspects to it, but it fell short in a lot of ways. And IMO, if they had the option of FPS mode, it would added more depth to the game.

Gta V is the fifth game. Watch Dogs was the first one.

Good point. I'll wait for WD V before I buy it again.

@jdreyer: Thank you for your feedback and information. We could argue the point, but IMHO the media has more than a ‘minor’ negative roll in it all, but not as big as I probably made it sound (after re-reading what I wrote). In regards to the Swedish cops subduing two fight men, that is what we all wish we would see more of; however, how different would it have gone down if the two fighting men had guns, and how differently would it have been spun by the media? That is a whole other debate.

Yes, there certainly is a systemic issue with our police forces that need to be addressed and rectified before it spins out of control. Improving on (technology) and increase use of stun guns, but some would argue it wouldn’t be a balanced battleground. /shrug

1. Agreed, the Justice Dept. needs to get their heads out of the sand (and their asses) and better address the problems throughout our police depts.\forces.

2. Interesting, I’ll have to read about that more.

Generational effects will take a while to completely washout, so yeah, it certainly won’t change things quickly.

3. Yeah, it’s interesting. We’re seeing more and more of this with cellphone cameras, and it makes you wonder how much this went on before most everyone had cellphone cameras. But, you’d think/hope this fact would keep the corrupt officers more in-check with them knowing they could be being recorded via someone’s cellphone camera at any time.

@NKD: Thank you for your feedback. In regards to your response in your first sentence, you can't tell me when the news anchors are interviewing people (families and the local community) that the people they're interviewing aren't making it racial? I’m not trying to say it happens all the time, but it seems to more times than not. I should have clarified that when someone is robbing a liquor store, for example, and the cops are chasing down the robber, the robber starts shooting at the cops as he is fleeing, and the cops react and shoot back and kill the robber. You then see the family\friends\neighbors being interviewed and more times than not they make it racial. We could argue the point of the cop being justified killing the robber, or just wounding him instead, but risk still getting shot by the robber. This is why they need to improve and expand upon using stun guns instead so there isn't so much killing.

In regards to your second sentence, I agree, that is no doubt a problem. It is not an excuse, but that would be a tough situation to be in if a good honest cop is getting pressured by his peers not to testify ‘against’ the bad cops to protect them and/or the force as a whole. He starts thinking of his job, family, future, etc. and becomes pressured to “do the right thing” (in the minds of his peers) and that pressure forces him to do the wrong thing. It certainly happens, but how much? Who ‘really’ knows?

In regards to your third/last sentence, I can appreciate your frustration and passion with the subject matter, but don’t think for one second that I’m ignorant of the fact that there ‘are’ issues in our police dept./forces that need to be addressed and resolved before it ‘does’ spin out of control. I don’t think the media makes things up - my point is/was in my first paragraph above.
In regards to global warming, that is a whole other subject. I will say that there is no doubt the pollution we generate has an effect on climates, etc. and I’ll just leave it at that.

I've had my share of condescending dick cops and very nice\professional cops, so it is really unfair to hastily generalize on the negative side. Most cops are on the good side, but unfortunately there are bad seeds that give the good ones a bad name.

Overall, it isn't our police officers\forces that are the problem, it is the media and self entitled attention mongers painting a bad image of our police forces more than the bad seeds within those police forces. When a white cop shoots a African American "CRIMINAL", FOR EXAMPLE, he is automatically racist and it was an unjustified shooting even though the "CRIMINAL" was shooting at the police officers and innocent bystanders.

I certainly would not want to be a cop in this day and age, as it would be too stressful and aggravating dealing with all the BS and unfair media.

Thank you to all you good/professional police officers out there for working to keep us and our communities safe.

Was a small docu on tv here the other day about the law office or something like that in London who sort of ordered/firmly requested their employees to have these health apps running on their phone/watch and allow then in sight into it....

sorry I find that scary

Yeah, a little scary. After reading this article, I started looking through the 'Health & Fitness' app, which uploads your data to the cloud, which I'm not too comfortable with, even though they claim you remain anonymous. Nervous

GTA5 has pretty much sold me on buying a new computer. Mine runs it ok, but it's like 5-6 years old, and I know it can look better...


What CPU are you running?

An i7 960

Hmmm. I'm running an i7 2600K, 16GB Ram, and a 780ti, and I am almost running the game full-tilt-boogie 45-60fps. Depending on what video card you're running, that is probably the only upgrade you'll need IMHO. Your CPU has better memory bandwidth, but requires a bit more power, but overall performance is 'just about the same'. If you can swing it, the 980ti is probably right around the corner.
