Sexismt/racism/homophobia is lessened in spite of the constant in-your-face assertions liberals make, not because of it.

You seem reasonable Quboid -- I'm stating what is obvious to me without insulting liberals in general. I am, however, quite tired of liberals in general throwing out insults on a daily basis against anyone who isn't a liberal. Conservatives are equally accepting if not more-so when you consider the strong racial bias from minority groups which no one likes to talk about. And conservatives do not feel the need to preach to the choir -- which has a profound meaning if you know about human psychology.

What a moronic article -- works both ways and is simply a part of life.

This junk I just wasted time reading talks about "disrespect" and "sexist" constantly with capitalism peppered throughout -- hello liberal agenda! Diversity has been accepted for a long ass time -- people like her do more to alienate and cause issues.

Sex always sells, and it sells to the women as much as the man. I don't mind it either way -- but I also don't hinge my companies reputation on it so I have nothing to lose or gain, they do so why should we care? There are no commercials in my home for myself or my children -- that's how I handle things, I take control.

But to the hidden point of the bashing article... You don't market makeup to men, you don't market superheros to women. And if a candybar comes along that women love, you say fuck the men and market it to women. Common sense gone these days...

You appear to be agreeing with the article. Is it moronic because it's obvious or is one of us missing something?

The article is liberal sexist babble that is the complete opposite of my message and reality in general.

Google "consoles are" the 4th autocorrect is "ruining PC gaming."


just search thus forum. Prevailing belief is that graphics haven't advanced because games are written to 10 year old consoles. Even if ports are improved they're still not as powerful as if designed for a PC.

you really deny ever hearing this?

I don't agree with this. It's not that the console hardware is holding tech back, it's the fact that developing a triple A game nowadays cost a 1000 times more than it did back in the golden age of pc gaming. So when you're in business to make money, you have to choose the client base that will get you the most return, and that is consoles (and now even phones and tablets). Game developers back in the day created pc games with innovation and science. These days, it's based on "what will sell the most". You can't blame it on a freakin' box of hardware. It all comes down to money. I think something like the Oculus Rift is the closest thing we have to games being designed with innovation and science, but I have my doubts about that development platform as well. The golden days are over, so don't keep thinking it's just going to come back. I personally think something completely different is going to replace games in general when it comes technology driven entertainment. But I don't think it will be the Rift.


frankly, I think its a bit of both. Consoles slowed progress, but it would have slowed due to cost regardless. Cost is the bigger issue. If you search my history I've argued that with people here numerous times.

but the squeaky wheels out there that think consoles are evil and console gamers are sheep like to find any evidence loosely supporting their argument and trumpet it. You won't find the more reasonable people doing it, but its a common argument used by very loud people that think platform choice makes someone superior or more "hardcore."

I own consoles. They are fun. They are not hardcore. Cry if you want Beamer, but the greatest COD player on xbox would get destroyed by most decent players on PC if using their own platform.

Now if we're talking about closed circuit, fine then the nintendo DS can be considered hardcore for tournaments as well as the xbox or ps3, wii whatever. Not stating skill doesn't exist, but it's nothing compared to the PC for a slew of reasons. All inclusive across all platform, PC is the only platform for pure hardcore gaming.

No Harlock, completely and utterly wrong. Beamer was talking about capabilities specifically "power" -- read in context before you reply please.

no, YOU are wrong.. so laughably, insanely wrong

graphics are more than "just textures".. they include geometry, lighting, frame rates, etc.

but dont worry i wont bother explaining this anymore to you, as you clearly cant even comprehend something as simple as that

im actually surprised you are able to even turn on a computer to post comments in the first place

Harlock, do you ever bother to comprehend? Not worth repeating, you're on auto denial and your insults are infantile.

And Beamer where exactly? Cause I sure don't hear that talk among pc gamers, that's absolutely the silliest shit ever. Maybe during the "PC's are dead" or some other stupid consolite fad, but not among PC peeps.

Ports are locked for most options, PC games are not. Open up options on 90% of PC games and there's a billion tweaks you can make from resolution, physics, vegetation, fov, distance, lighting etc. Absolutely bullshit I'm calling on you.

The only complaint everyone hears about are shitty ports. I'd rather not see a port at all if it's like a console -- we don't need shit games with locked frames, busted controls and crappy fov with no options regardless of how "wonderful" they are on a console. But PCs and PC games have NEVER been held back by consoles, PCs are the platform of innovation.

I keep it like Cutter, company engages in "sex sells" style ads and they won't sell shit to me. And I dunno where you live Axis, but here ads are generally way beyond that and try to sell to as many people as possible.

But then, I don't see a lot of ads.. not having a TV helps.

I agree eRe4. I was responding to the article's nonsense -- that's what they were attempting to portray not me, I was just using their lame examples.

The only ads I see anymore are on Hulu for my wife and I, which I can put up with since they have the timer and aren't long. And only occasionally as there's only a few shows I watch. I primarily do movies on Netflix (kids ONLY get Netflix) or Amazon, play Pandora most of the time.

consoles have certainly held back game design itself, and saturated the market with dumbed down bullshit

Axis wrote on Jan 6, 2014, 15:45:

wtf? graphics are far more than "just textures".. talk about a "ridiculous notion".. actually thats more like "batshit crazy"

No Harlock, completely and utterly wrong. Beamer was talking about capabilities specifically "power" -- read in context before you reply please. But it takes a half insane person to actually understand his jumble of contradictions most of the time so you're forgiven.

However to your point, consoles have not held back game design on the PC at all. Most ports suck, but well designed PC games always come along to prove the superior platform.

And if you bothered to read you'd see I mentioned the "far more" part afterwards for things that matter that actually improve over time with a console's architecture (again specific to the conversation, not generalizing as you did), need to take stuff in context not just cherry pick and make a mountain out of your molehill.

No beamer, the xbone and ps4 will not have a drastic improvement as you saw with the last gen, not even close. These new consoles were only filling a gap in hardware specs, they are sub-par Pc's in architecture posing as 'next gen' consoles.

You will, however, see major improvements with the wii U over time. Not an endorsement for you haters, just telling it the way it is.

Oh, and the Wii U outsold the Xbone the week before Christmas. Again no endorsement, just facts : )

Beamer wrote on Jan 6, 2014, 15:33:
This makes no sense.
How, exactly, is the WiiU hardware so much more special? Because it's less like a PC?

Yes, new architecture, dev time needed, optimizations, blah blah blah -- same as it always has been with consoles for the most part, common knowledge. You just made the same comment about the old consoles, but now it makes no sense?

Beamer wrote on Jan 6, 2014, 15:33:
What really confuses me is that people have been complaining for years that PCs are capable of so much more, but held back by consoles. Now the consoles are significantly more powerful, and close to the average PC, and you're saying that this won't improve graphics?

Which is it - were graphics held back by old consoles, or are they at their limit and won't improve at all?

I know of no one, ever, in my circle of hardcore pc gamers and clanners who ever complained about PC's being held back by consoles, what a ridiculous notion. Sounds like a console chat on xbox live, certainly not among PC gamers.

And graphics always improve, they are just textures -- nothing special needed. It's everything else that matters (ai, physics, optimizations, engines, etc).

I call things the way they are with a just a light touch of suger. If people don't like being called a sheep when it's applicable, don't be a sheep when it is applicable. Panicked said it best with all sugar. : ) Except I despise windows 8 for a whole slew of other reasons.

I said I'm a sheep myself on other things. So I was including myself, just in different areas.

Some of you need some thicker skin and add in some humble.

Your problem Beamer is you make every post about what you want it to be, then you ride your high horse down a long road of your vision insulting all along the way, then when you are proven to be wrong you are silent.

If you bothered to read and comprehend before you open your mouth, people may respect you even if they don't agree. Some people don't like me, but they know I have solid arguments when I make them, and take ownership of my mistakes.

You are just a run-on sentence of Beamer...

It's not like them, it's mainstream vs. the alternative. If you're in the mainstream for most everything, than yes, you're a sheep.

Alright, but don't you realize how ridiculously hypocritical and dismissive this is?

Great, so someone uses Linux over Apple or Microsoft. Everyone else is a sheep.
But what if someone uses Redhat. Still a multimillion dollar corporation running it. Are they a sheep? To someone running their own build, probably.

And what about that guy still running OS/2. We're all sheep to him.
And how about that guy that made his own OS. Everyone is a sheep to him.

Linux, for a while, had a larger market share than Apple, back in like 2000. Does that mean the Linux users were sheep and Apple users were the hardcore?



Basically, calling someone "sheep" for using an OS is asinine, immature, and the sign of a mental deficiency. Some people on this board, you two in particular, call everyone a sheep for making decisions you do not. Cutter, you're like 40. Stop calling people "sheep" for tech choices. Stop making giant generalizations.
Sorry, you need to grow up. You act like a teenage girl so much of the time. You're not an idiot, but so much of what you say is tossaway gibberish that is damn near trolling.
I know you'll find this hypocritical and either block me or threaten to, but look at what you whined about Blue deleting from you yesterday. Something along the lines of "haha, toolbag Failbox user fanboys."
Do you not realize how much that phrase is hypocritical because it makes it seem like you're the fanboy, not someone else? Hell, at your age you shouldn't really care what other people do and you shouldn't use loaded weasel words like "fanboy."

I just don't get how an otherwise mature, reasonable man can be such a petulant child when it comes to his hobby. You act like a 14 year old on Xbox Live circa 2007.

Re-read my last post, revise this one, and grow up.

Linux is not for the microsoft or mac sheep, it's for cutting edge techs who design their own OS to fit their company or their own needs. And that type of ratio pretty much stays the same once something becomes established.

The only way to increase linux desktop adoption is consumers feeling comfortable with it in some way (like an "android" desktop), or a huge marketing campaign for a distro that is fool proof. A few will be gleaned here and there just from exposure (and possibly from projects like Steam), but it's not going to ebb and flow much in either direction from now on.

Linux is for sheep that think they need to be different.


See, I can call people that make different choices than me "sheep," too!
What is it with this place and thinking everyone not EXACTLY LIKE THEM is a sheep?

A 'sheep' would be defined as an individual who doesn't dig deeper on their own, easily influenced by marketing or hype and quick to defend their choice that the majority make. And the vast majority of windows users just follow the crowd because alternatives are not shoved in their faces for easy consumption - this goes for businesses 10 fold.

And that's fine -- it's not a bad thing but it is a fact. I'm a sheep in many areas I'm no expert in. The difference is mine are by choice most of the time -- not by sly marketing or faddish decisions. For instance, I purchase Great Value items from walmart like a hound, my shelves are filled to the hilt with white and blue boxes. And I do it because I do save money, but primarily because I know that Great Value is exactly the same as the name brands I've sheeped in the past. I also

The vast majority simply don't think beyond what's easily reachable right in front of them, and can't be bothered.

Its people like you beamer who constantly contradict themselves and never take ownership that people should be wary of.

Drupal seems to be taking over the lead for CMS, some big plans a comin - I always preferred Joomla in the past. Wordpress was fun, but a security nightmare for most, can't stand it these days just so many better options if you know what you're doing.
