And yeah, this is kinda late, but I remember an aprils fool joke on a gaming site ages ago, where the gag was that id was gonna do product placements in Quake, and we all laughed our asses off at the idea.. now John f'in Carmack works for FACEBOOK. he actually works for facebook, and now hes being sued by a shitty, greedy company of laywers that bought id software before he left.. for FACEBOOK. Jesus Christ.

I believe that April Fools Joke's name was Quake Live. They did the in-game advertisement thing for a short while and it was a terrible failure.

To me the most interesting thing about this story is that Zenimax claims they have signed documents giving them ownership of this. I'm looking forward to hearing more details about the content of these documents.. Deal

Season pass eh? Does that mean it's only good for Summer if I buy it now or can I save it for fall/winter when I'll have more time to play?

Big soldier guys? Head to the forest. The mobs there are way easier. Unless you mean the pigs in the town.

The big ogre hippo thing... it was worth it though I had less trouble with the asylum demon lol

You are absolutely positively not supposed to be fighting those the first time through things betwixt.

Is there a reward for taking them down like with the asylum demon though?

Addons I've liked for FF/WF:

Security:
Adblock
NoScript
Ghostery (Still getting a feel for this one)

QOL:
Bookmark All
Custom Tab Width
Smartest Bookmark Bar
Plain ole Favorites
Show My Password
Last Pass

Also a tweak to auto-load the Find Bar at the bottom.

I show Menu, Navigation and Bookmarks Toolbars.

As another said, you can throw out the new default look of all the browsers. Totally un-handy imo, minimalist is look and functionality.

Waterfox may eat up a lot of ram, but I have a lot of ram. So I put some of it to use.

Is bookmark all a plugin to make bookmarks of all tabs? If so, that functionality is already baked into firefox for a while.. just right-click any tab and choose "bookmark all tabs"

Some people just think that Star Citizen is a SCAM. Taking $50 million of gamers money through Kickstarter fueled by FALSE PROMISES.

Now I know you probably get chills shoot up your leg whenever Roberts tweet a new "feature" that will never get done. Probably ever time there is a Star Citizen video showing a guy getting in a fighter money shoots our your butt.

However, many of us are sick of seeing the same video used over and over and over and we feel its a huge scam.

Sorry we dont get the same tingles in our behind that some get over this game. But its not much more advanced then what a indie with $100,000 could make in 6 months BY HIMSELF.

So then where exactly is the OTHER $49,900,000 dollars? Yachts and hookers is my educated guess. There are many people who have been around alot that are very suspicious of the large claims made. Others its true are giving 1000's of dollars and believe every word he says. Its a bit of a cult of personality and that has many of us on edge.

WTF is up with you and all this talk of chills shooting up dudes legs and behinds whenever I visit a Star Citizen thread? Give it a rest already, troll. You spend wayyy too much time thinking about what other guys' legs and asses feel like. Are you trying to tell us something?

all updates besides map packs will be free

Charging for map packs is the worst thing you can do to an online community.

QFT.

Fragmenting your playerbase like this only helps if you plan on shoveling out a new version every year and would rather have the population die out on the previous rendition because everyone is playing the new one. If any video game designer even remotely considers the "art" of what they do and respects the medium in that light, they would *never* choose to fragment a game's playerbase like map pack DLC always does.

Aaaand this is why I'll only own vehicles pre-2000 thank you very much.
Yeah, cars before 2000 never got stolen

What Nighthawk said. Also, wouldnt stealing someone's keys be the same thing as stealing someone's password? That title is also misleading, what the article actually says (unlike the fucking heading) is that what they can do with the password is open the car, they cant actually start it! Fucking journalists. I hate them more with every single fucking day.

The article is titled "Hackers Can Unlock Tesla Cars by Stealing Owners’ Passwords" It didn't say it let them steal the cars. I thought that was pretty clear.

How is this a good business decision? I thought gaming companies made tons of money banning accounts and getting people to buy new ones? Interesting. BTW FYI this post is Trolling Free.

I was going to ask the same thing. I dont think cheaters should be allowed to play the game in any fashion. This is cutting them some serious slack. Also while this sounds fun on paper, I have trouble believing that this system is 100% fullproof. There will be a lot of false positives and regular people will get stuck in these cheat servers.

These cheater-only servers will likely be very valuable for respawn in their attempts to keep the game balanced. Once they have a cheater in the pool they then have a special environment set up on that server to monitor the players more closely and better dissect the current hacks. Sounds like a smart move that could pay off if they utilize this resource instead of just have it as some kind of punishment.

Sepharo wrote on Mar 26, 2014, 22:51:
I find it funny that there are people complaining about how the DLC isn't ready but had it been day-0 people would have complained about that. Somehow it even seems that people are complaining about the new game modes being free. Also the game launched with Team Deathmatch, Control Points, CTF, and Titan elimination, yet there are people complaining that there aren't more modes yet. "Man this game ain't shit unless there are 7 modes at launch."

If it's multiplayer only? Bet your balls it better bring some variety to the table. Halo came out over 10 years ago and had a well-done single player campaign (with co-op!) and launched with more variety in it's multiplayer options (at least 5 multiplayer modes at launch, 16 players, and customizable rules) over 10 years ago.

The bar, even for console FPS, was raised *long* ago. Now we pay $60 for multiplayer only, 12 player matches, and 4 game modes.. GG, EA.

Brilliant. There has to be gamers out there where money is no object. Sucks I'm not one.

its not for gaming, much like the titan wasn't positioned to be. Bitcoin farmers may grab it.

Bitcoin farmers would not touch this thing. Premium price for what can be achieved in a much less costly array of AMD gpu's. Performance-per-watt will be interesting to know though.

News Comments > New USFIV Class Revealed
3. Re: New USFIV Class Revealed Mar 17, 2014, 21:32 Mordecai Walfish
 
"Old class revealed" should be the headline. This is just another Cammy clone like juli and juni, the "doll" class character. Slight variations to the moves and new supers and Capcom regurgitates another character in the tradition of ken/ryu/akuma with another money-grab update.

Funny the headline incorrectly calls this a "class" also, instead of a character.. but it is really just another in a class of regurgitated characters in SF. Disappointing, but having Hugo and Elena in there will be awesome.

I've not been happy with Nvidia drivers for the last several WHQL releases for my 580GTX. The display driver crashes at random every couple days when doing normal desktop things. Though it could be something new on my end, I suspect that the testing of drivers on hardware that's a few generations old has been relegated to the summer intern who won't be back until June.

Of course I don't really believe it, but a part of me also suspects planned obsolescence. I would upgrade if I felt any pressing need, but pretty much every game that's GPU bound is still running fine on max or near max settings. This might not be an uncommon feeling, particularly as the new console generation apparently isn't all that impressive hardware-wise.


I'm a GTX480 user with no such issues since the TDR problem mentioned in this post:


David Clark wrote on Mar 14, 2014, 13:19:
Re: crashes at the desktop. I don't know if you're using Firefox, but if you are, this may help. I was experiencing crashes every few weeks while browsing after updating to a new WHQL version a few months ago. Turns out that certain production runs of certain cards are having a difficult-to-trace hardware incompatibility with Firefox's hardware acceleration setting - after turning it off (Options -> Advanced -> General -> Browsing (Use Hardware Acceleration When Available)), no more crashes.

It's actually such a weird bug that nVidia asked people experiencing it to send in their cards for testing, since none of theirs on-site can reproduce the problem.

Anyway, worked for me - hope it helps you.

Which has not occurred for well over a year for me, I cant recall the last time the graphics driver crashed actually, and I'm using newest nVidia WHQL release now.

All this with a generous overclock and using video driver/monitor hacks to enable lightboost at 120hz and I've had 0 signs of instability on my rig. Never changed any settings in Firefox to fix the TDR issues either, it just got fixed in the driver for me eventually. Win7 Pro 64-bit AMD dualcore unlocked to quad (Phenom 2 555BE @ 3.6ghz)
