caveat emptor. no one is forcing people to buy a thing that they know is incomplete and may never be complete.

True. The problem is that there enough people out there that will buy incomplete games thus ensuring that the practice continues. So, if it's the selling of unfinished games that one is opposed to, which I happen to be, then my not buying it won't really "solve" the problem.

9/11 was orchestrated so that they could more easily find excuses to violate the Constitution. Pesky laws make it hard to do business.

My New Year's resolution for 2014 is to completely ignore all the crazy conspiracy theorists and hope they die off.

Dammit, I just broke my resolution!

OK, starting... NOW!

75% off all of the Crysis titles was good enough for me. Only played the first one but even if it's simply more off the same, for $4.99 I'm a happy gamer.

With the advent of programs that use a graphics card to brute force millions upon millions of passwords in an hour (thanks for writing those btw, assclowns!), passwords have become completely and utterly useless.

it's time to switch over to biometric-based security. Sure, it can still get hacked/stolen, but it's better than trying to come up with more and more ridiculous password complexities, all of which do nothing to stop that password from being 100% vulnerable.

Don't most properly implemented security systems lock a user out after some set number of failed login attempts? For example, if a site prevents a user from attempting to login for 3 minutes for every 5 failed tries, then the rate of blind tries gets reduced to 100/hr. Seems like that would be enough to thwart most brute force attempts.

I get all nostalgic thinking about Doom. I still can clearly recall picking up a floppy disk at the checkout counter at Circuit City containing the Doom shareware knowing nothing about the game. Got home and fired it up and was blown away. It was because of that moment that I got into the hobby of building my own PCs so I could keep up with the onslaught of Doom-inspired games which would follow.

Really wish I could recapture that feeling again.

I will never understand why the PC only crowd constantly bashes the console crowd.

They're elitists trying to convince themselves they are special.

I use consoles and PC. They both have their pros and cons. To take such a strong stance against one is childish to say the least.

I will solve all your problems, don't buy a console.

A friend was over yesterday, his kids want a console for xmas and he was wondering which was better. I took him down the street to watch another friends kids play a PC version of Battlefield 4 on a 4k tv. After telling him that the consoles won't support that resolution, he changed his mind and is getting them a good gaming PC.

I guess he also needs to buy a 4k TV then too, no?

Just because the console can't run it doesn't mean our beastly machines can't.

I don't think anyone is questioning whether the PC can run it. I think the question is, will developers bother to implement it if they are writing primarily for consoles and PCs are more of an afterthought.

I posted sound and solid advice for Blue I just didn't sugar coat it and I get bullied. Pay attention you will all be better for it.

Let me ask you, if you were in a room face to face with Blue, would you have said what you said and in the same way you said it? No, you wouldn't and you know why? Because you're an anonymous attention-seeking coward. What a sad little life you lead.

Apparently, you have your own way of milking attention. Pathetic.

Pretty embarrassing at the time, actually.

Why, for being human? People who can put their pets down without crying should be forced to move to the Soulles Fucking Bastards colony.

I've had to put down two pets, and both times I've been a fucking wreck.

Embarrassed, not because I lost it, but because I couldn't hold out 5 more minutes when I would have been safely on my way home instead of in the vet's office surrounded by a bunch of people I didn't know.

I consider myself to be fairly hardened emotionally but found myself bawling like a baby in the vet's office immediately after giving him consent to euthanize my dog. I was a rock up to that point then I just lost it. Pretty embarrassing at the time, actually.

I can definitely sympathize

Change of subject somewhat, but I can't shake the feeling that these consoles are ridiculously underpowered.

Underutilized, perhaps, but not underpowered, at least not when comparing to last gen. For example, the PS4's GPU is (reportedly) 4.5x more powerful than PS3's and has 5x the previous memory. It's just going to take a while, as usual, before we see game devs starting to take advantage.

"Changed the less than 6Gb RAM minimum spec. fence from a blocking error to a warning screen"

When I first heard this I thought that meant they had optimized so that 4GB was now a viable configuration, which would have been admirable, but apparently it just changes the nature of the error/warning messages. So basically, their solution is to try and con people into thinking that their previously under-powered rigs are now capable of adequately running the game when that simply isn't the case.

Classy.

Thanks for the reply, nin.

Extended warranty might not be such a bad idea in the long run. Right now my biggest concern is ensuring the kids a good Christmas so I guess it's time to hit the joysticks. After that, my biggest problem will be explaining how Dad managed to obtain all the high scores on a console Santa just delivered.

27. Totally off-topic PS4 question Nov 19, 2013, 13:44 LesCaster
 
Sorry to derail but didn't know where else to ask...

Does anyone here know how long it takes before the PS4 is potentially stricken with the so-called Blue Light of Death?

I was lucky enough to order from Amazon on release day and it is scheduled to arrive today. My plan was to power on, apply updates, and box it back up for my kids, ready for Christmas. However, I'd like to be certain I don't have a unit with issues so I'm guessing that means putting more time on it until reasonably sure. That said, it's tough to use while keeping it secret from the kids at the same time but, if there is an issue, I'd sure like to get it resolved before Christmas.

Any ideas when I might be able to consider the unit all cleared or is the nature of the issue such that it could bite at any time, even after a couple weeks of no problems detected?

Thanks.

Console back in stock at lamestop...


Was that for a specific bundle? I just checked the basic version (no games/controllers) and it says it's not available.

Edit: Never mind, just saw it was for the Battlefield 4 and Knack bundles only. Unfortunately, I already have the 2nd controller as well as 4 games on the way.
