The article on ARS about the longterm investigation of the Anon guy in Chicago is interesting. It helps they had an inside informant but the wireless router snooping and other forensics the article details is pretty fascinating.

Q. What didnít work out as planned or expected?

Initially, we started off the Heroic dungeons at too high of a difficulty.

And the regular dungeons weren't too difficult? And the healing classes weren't fubarred? There was a lot more wrong than difficult heroics...

2. Re: windows 8 Mar 2, 2012, 21:37 Shok
 
From the Windows 8-Ball Consumer Preview article:

In its current form, I feel Windows 8 is woefully inadequate for desktop power users.

That about sums it up for my experience with Windows 8 as well. I just installed it on an old laptop to see what it was like and it's a joke. There is no option to boot to desktop mode. Windows XP let you go back to the older 98/2k windows theme (although I never did). In Win8 it's their metro ui or nothing apparently.

Windows 8 feels like a console version of an operating system.

AI War is the real steal here. $5.77 for the game and all expansions is just crazy. These devs still release regular patches at least monthly, if not more, for the game and have very helpful and active forums. The gameplay is a hybrid of RTS with 4x and even tower defense. And with spectacular AI. And tens of thousands of ships in the late stages of big games. It's like no other game and will only get better as they work on it and release upcoming expansions.

I enabled AO in Skyrim using nvidiainspector a few months ago using the beta drivers and the framerate hit was terrible on my GTX560. I'd be surprised to see if they really did make the hit less severe.

I noticed that Mass Effect 1 & 2 are on sale on Amazon downloads for $5 each. Not sure how long the sale is going to last.

No pics/media? Not a single shit is given.

The company is bitComposer. It wasn't clear by the press release but the major focus of the game will be the music. Hence, they don't have screenshots yet since they are working on the music. Duh! Also, it will be crappy on the PC since they are composing it using consoles. Sigh...

The first season of the show was pretty good but this season it seems every episode has gotten worse in quality. The bad writing of meaningless dialogue is especially annoying.

I really appreciated Jaguar's review on this - as I usually do. I'll still require a demo first otherwise this is going to have to wait for a decent sale.

The demo came out on the 6th.

I hope this new game doesn't suck. I've been buying them since some of the first computer games based on Star Trek came out. And most of them based on the original franchise sucked.

As for the Star Trek reboot, I don't care for Chris Pine for some reason. Maybe because he looks like Dexter's brother to me

To clarify my system setup:

My system specs are a Galaxy GTX560 2GB with 290.53 beta drivers. My machine is set up to multi-boot win7x64: the gaming partition has the 290.53 drivers and another partition I boot from has the official release 285.62 driver. They both experience the crash randomly with Firefox running.

Is this a problem with all nvidia cards, or just some of them? I was just considering shopping for a new card, but I definitely don't want one that's going to mess up FF for me. Would go with AMD for sure if that's the case.

Yes, apparently so if you use the 280 release drivers. To be honest, it didn't crash daily...only 3-4 times a week or so. And by crash, I mean the video driver crashed not Firefox. Basically, you get a black screen out of the blue for a few seconds and the vid driver pops up a tooltip that it recovered from a crash.
