News Comments > Steam Hardware Early Preorders Sold Out

Somehow I knew when I was staring at the pre-order link for the controller yesterday that i should have clicked it. Damn.

I don't know how anyone HTPC gaming could be less than super-excited for this thing... if I never touch another fucking xbox controller for the rest of my life I'll die happy.

It was mentioned in the comments at the bottom of that mod article.

Good to know it's still there. I will still probably GOTY purchase it next year, thanks.

EDIT; And how sad of a statement is that... that no matter how fucked up this launch has been we all know it's going to have a GOTY release... sigh.

The Kili/Tauriel thing is the only thing that felt out of place to me, I was really glad to see such an expanded view of what was going on in "The Hobbit".

Limiting it to the contents of the 80-page children's book would have done it a serious disservice. I think given some time to digest that they may not be so reviled as they are now. I see this same lack of imagination permeating every aspect of our culture.

Am I reading between some lines correctly here... they removed the challenge maps from the new Batman? EDIT: No, I am not. :p

I can't "not buy" this game any more than I already haven't but... damn.

There are some surprisingly tidy places to stop along the way to spell your ADHD Spoilers reveal chapter titles

Fellowship: 1:45:42 right after the "council of elrond" chapter where they declare the fellowship
Two Towers: 2:06:52 after the "isengard unleashed" chapter with merry/pippin/treebeard
Return of the King: 01:58:40 after the "paths of the dead" chapter, before the siege of gondor starts. not as clean as the others. another option would be 02:08:43 right after "the corairs of umbar".

This got my narcoleptic GF through all 3 movies, it can work for you too :p I think the pacing of the new hobbit trilogy was a little better, we didn't have to split them up like this (of course they are each nearly an hour shorter).

Due cynicism aside, it would be way worse if they weren't patching it at all. Supposedly parts of the military are paying MS millions to extend patching support for them beyond 2016. It was probably on here somewhere that I read it.

There is pretty clearly stuttering and hitching in your video (most obvious driving up the ramp to the top street level). I think the issue here is that some people either don't care or can't see it... I don't know. What passes for "acceptable performance" obviously means different things to different people.

I had a friend over the other day and I was bitching about how GTA5 stutters on my PC (almost like a pulse every few seconds) and he looked at me like I had 3 heads, he couldn't see it at all.

That's on my shit PC though... If I had your rig, I don't think I would be OK with the way the game seems to be running.

Side note: the car strafing looks so fuckin cheesy

JD you and your facts... :p

I agree that they basically charged him with the wrong thing initially. At least that part has been cleared up (this is where the 14 year charge came from for those that only read headlines).

This guy already had a string of priors, known gang ties, and was on probation. He was basically going to get the maximum allowed sentence no matter which charge stuck.

It's hard to come up with any "intent" here other than attempting to bring the chopper down. You could technically call that "attempted murder", especially if it was a plane with a few hundred people on board.

Even then... Who's to say that 3 years, 5 years, 10 years, 20 years are enough though? How does one even quantify that? Just having the conviction on your record is enough to ruin most of the rest of your life... the amount of time you are actually jailed doesn't seem that important... especially for a technically "non-violent offense" if you don't believe that it is attempted murder.

Incarceration accomplishes nothing in the long run. Is this sort of "lesson" somehow worth the $200k+ a year in taxpayer money it will cost to jail him?

Pretty easy to play devils advocate on all sides of something like this... with no right answer readily available. The only thing that is clear-cut is that people need to stop doing shit like this. The result will end up being the ban of sale of all green-laser devices. Fun spoiled for everyone.

EDIT: Blue is feisty today! lol

How would you ever know if something is click-bait when you clearly never click on them to read them? The word gravity does not even appear in that article, so you are complaining about claim they never made.

Sigh... i had really hoped after FIFA15 got the upgrade to the new Ignite engine and was pretty well received that regular releases of EA sports games would be coming back to PC. Guess not.

Having one competitor in a market is really... no competition at all. The inevitable result is that once one of the companies gains enough of a leg up that will leverage that into nearly full market share (see: MS vs Apple).

The video card market is an oligopoly (as are most U.S. consumer markets these days) where every move nVidia makes is directly related to and in response to a move that AMD makes, and vice-versa. They don't actually have to account for any other outside factors that would benefit the consumer in a more competitive market.

For one brief period in time there were 3 options... you could buy 3DFX, nVidia or ATI... and that was that. If AMD folds up show I wouldn't really expect too much to change, competitive practices haven't been driving the video card market for a long time anyway.

I noticed that the Google photo app is doing something similar to this now too, even with the facial recognition options turned off.

There are some pretty robust facial recognition systems out there now... this shouldn't really be surprising. Stadium security systems can pick a single face out of thousands... even retailers are using them for identifying customers that have been flagged for theft.

Some systems go as far as being able to recognize faces in the reflection in your cornea. Pretty crazy stuff.

"Avoiding Facebook" to try to keep your face out of these systems is rather pointless.

That's... a pretty strange line for someone to draw who has nicknamed himself after James Bond... the closest person in fiction/canon to Batman I can think of.
