Carrier Assault is right up my alley as I loved it's equivalent mode in 2142. But I'm not jumping into BF4 until I hear the major issues with the base game are ironed out (if they ever are). And by then it'll be cheap to pick up too.

The question if it will require 8/8.1 to use is a good one. I also wonder if it will require a hardware refresh as well like past DX releases? AMD managed to implement Mantle for already existing hardware.

Beyond the privacy and security concerns (which being Comcast can never be taken at their word) how strong a signal are those things pumping out to actually be useful to someone not on your property?

I was actually cheering when the line "the age of the transformers is ending" (or the like) came up...

I have to admit I had some nostalgia tingles when I saw the original mack truck from the series. After that it was standard Bay.

Pot Pie == Marijuana Pie??

'Cos that would be like, amazing...

That would simultaneously create and relieve food cravings leading to a paradox that would make one go insane. Or something.

Couple hours in and no sign of any bugs or glitches yet, fingers crossed (PC version).

Really enjoying it. I like the timing based combat system. The humor and shoutouts to pretty much every episode really hits the spot. And it really is uncanny how exactly like the show it looks. Obviously it's an easier style to copy but still, in cutscenes you really can't tell it's realtime.

Modern Science Still Only Able To Predict One Upcoming Tetris Block.

Scientists create accurate predictor of the next year’s flu virus.

The Tetris people need to talk to the virus people.


Done and done.

As for the continuing anti-vaxx debate, many of their arguments don't even pass basic high school biology. Science is not a democracy. Neither side of the argument is perfect but only one side is laughably, demonstrably and even dangerously wrong.

Running Win7 desktops here, it took a few years but I finally convinced them to upgrade from the Pentium 3(!) and 4 XP machines a couple years back. For his personal use the manager bought both surfaces and an 8 laptop. He abandoned both surfaces and I'm routinely in there showing where Microsoft "hid the cheese" with 8. Fuck you 8.

Regarding anti-vaxxers, unfortunately confirmation bias is a very powerful and very annoying human trait.

Edit: Also dumb childish people which appears to be the case in the article.

The ease of use, universal compatibility, relative security and low cost will ensure fax machines stick around for a lot longer than 4 years. Consumers might drop paper but businesses won't anytime soon.

Enjoying this now definitive version of my favorite game from that console gen. 60FPS is a huge improvement (though the option exists for 30FPS for purists). The texture upgrade is minor but it's better than nothing. Just don't do what I did and turn post-processing to full assuming it's a graphics enhancer.

Next they'll offer rebates for free copies.

The Kinect investigation combined with the UK webcam spying reveal adds up to one big "I told you so".

Followed quickly by "wtf do we do now?"

Yes? According to the article she was demonstrating the device to other interested people. They already live on Big Brother, Glass or no Glass. That is the point and why being hostile against something as specific as Glass users is nothing but ignorance.

By your logic people should be equally ok with personalized camera drones tracking their every movement. A security camera is installed in a bar because a security camera is a logical idea. There are also notifications strewn about regarding it's existence. And the business is regulated regarding it's use. People choose to enter knowing all that. Glass is something unique and it does not have the general public's stamp of approval yet. Physical violence is never an appropriate response but there is nothing wrong with having a negative response to it.

And who the hell says Glass is recording all the time?

The article notes that they pulled recorded video off of it showing the attacker. So just as the crowd suspected she was recording. Doesn't justify a violent reaction but she isn't blameless in this. Not everyone wants to live on Big Brother.

News Comments > Star Citizen Mustang Sale Poll

Stop asking fans what they want it'll never stop. You'll end up like Santa Clause and the actual game will be equally non-existent (spoilers). Lock in and finish the damn thing. I liked the idea of open development when it first started, avoiding the pitfalls from a lack of feedback etc etc. A few games last year could have used some of that *coughrebirthcough*. But now the opposite problem has emerged, a design by committee endlessly expanding and nebulous concept of a game. If you want money then convince more people to preorder by showing them awesome things.

Enjoying it so far, don't see what the fuss was all about. Strikes me as the usual internet reaction, aka take a normal response and dial it to 11. Oh well. And it's a GREAT port, Nixxes really went all out here. Triple buffering options in the game itself? Has anyone done that before? First I've seen. And no sign here of the kind of issues that plagued the launch of DX:HR, smooth as butter with everything to full.

Yep, exactly. Without net neutrality this will eventually filter down to the user in the form of internet channels or something retarded, just watch.

I can't help but picture a Mr Burns-ish telco CEO reading the news that Netflix caved and rubbing his hands together in glee that the precedent has been set. The door has been opened and the govt is probably too damned inept/corrupt to close it.
