I vehemently disagree with Crenshaw, his opinions are delusional and reek of western imperialism, I'd LOVE to see Tulsi Gabbard, also ex-military, eat him up alive on this one, I'd pay to see that show.

Yemen would love to see the US's allies ( and their weapons ) OUT of the country as well as the illegal siege warfare conducted on its population, sponsored by the US if not directly, then indirectly, to stop ASAP so Yemenites can stop starving to death.

Regarding censorship of free speech in the public square ( what the social media are now, despite being private ), I'm against it pretty much universally unless it calls for the infringement of the free will of others, either it be directed to the right or the slightly right of center ( US's so called "radical" "left" ) or really anyone else for that matter.

As for 9/11, yes, the US's foreign policies certainly had a major role to play if it was indeed perpetrated and orchestrated abroad without any insider help ( doubtful and debatable considering who profited the most, follow the money is always good advice ) and ironically, even if there was insider help, then you could also argue that interventionist and imperialist foreign policies are also part of the problem, considering how foreign hate was used and also that the event has immediately been used as a scapegoat to invade foreign countries and make $ while killing/letting die millions.

I do agree with you on Tulsi Gabbard, but she does not have a chance in hell of getting the nomination, if Joe does not get it, it will be one of the socialists and they will go down in flames. I don't agree with Crenshaw much, but he nailed it when he said worse actors then us will move in if we leave many of these places.

News Comments > CD Projekt RED Down on Exclusives
20. Re: CD Projekt RED Down on Exclusives Aug 24, 2019, 23:37 Ozmodan
 
Ah, a developer with some sense. Exclusives probably work for small shops, but if your game is any good, exclusives are going to hurt you and limit your audience.

As to Steam, yeah it is the big gorilla, but better to have a good source of games than cluttering up your PC with a bunch of storefronts, just my opinion of course.

As to GOG, I buy games from then all the time.

If you did a kickstarter for your game and got people to invest in it, they it is most certainly unethical to do a store exclusive on it. If that is not obvious to you I feel sorry for you inability to grasp that fact.

It is convenient, especially around the home or in your vehicle. If you have privacy concerns turn it off when shopping. Like anything, if you use it be aware of it's issues. Kind of a stupid article since there is nothing to replace it at the moment.

Do you believe that it is an ethical practice to offer developers of kickstarter projects money, after the game has already been created, to renege on their kickstarter pledge of offering the game on steam?
Yes
Do you believe it is an ethical business practice, to offer publishers money to make their games EGS exclusives one month prior to launch, after they have pre-sold the game on Steam, and not allow that publisher to fulfill those pre-orders on steam?
Yes
Glad that's settled.

Blatantly unethical!

Doing an Epic exclusive is about as dumb a move as you can make as a developer. Why limit your audience. There are a lot of us that will not buy from that store.

News Comments > More Ray Tracing Plans Revealed
21. Re: More Ray Tracing Plans Revealed Aug 20, 2019, 07:46 Ozmodan
 
Funny I own a 2080 and the very first thing I do in any game is turn the ray tracing off. The impact on performance is not worth the visuals. Can't imagine how this impacts lessor cards like the 2070 and 2060. The feature is still a gimmick and so is their DLSS, kudos to AMD to not putting the gimmick on their latest video cards.

Yes, ray tracing is the future, just not for at least another 3-5 years until they make better cards.

Kind of a really stupid article if you ask me. A character is what you make of it that is the entire point of playing a game. Assigning sexual orientation to specific characters is about as absurd as you can get.

If you want to play a particular character a certain orientation go ahead, that is your choice, not some stupid article writer making stuff up as they go.

I do not understand the need to pigeonhole others. We are all on this ball in space for just a very short period and all of us have different ways to float our boat. You don't have to agree with their viewpoints, but have to accept that it is ok for them to differ.

News Comments > WoW Classic Population Control

Posters crack me up when they claim MMO's are dying. Just not so. It is ok if it is not your cup of tea. There are plenty of other genres I am sure that satisfy your gaming itch.

Not sure why a pvp server is so congested as pvp in Wow has always been pathetic. Of all the MMO's Wow's pvp has always been bottom of the barrel because there is absolutely no point to it. My first level 60 was on a pvp server which I soon left, never to return.

As to Wow classic, I have no interest in redoing that. It was fun at the time, but I can't imagine it being fun again.

Used to be a C programmer, but find Python to be far better. I still won't do any Java though, worst programming language ever. I find plenty of work doing Python.

the company assholes bullied a streamer just because he had some inside information. The assholes were the ones whose security leaked. I would not touch this game period and justify assholes like this in the industry.

There are plenty of shooters and screw you if you buy the game.

I will not be playing this. After Gears 4 stopped working on my PC and the devs refused to fix it I will NOT be wasting money on their producst anymore. Too many other good games to play.

What is wrong with some of you? He did not sign any NDA nor is an employee. Take-Two has no right to interrogate him whatsoever. As someone mentioned in an earlier thread, they can insist he remove copyrighted screenshots, but that is about it. I don't see how they have the power to affect his other accounts.

Good thing I will have nothing to do with these asshats.

Simon Says wrote on Aug 1, 2019, 05:55:
BODMAS and PEDMAS are irrelevant, the confusion comes from how it's written, in reality in non-kiddie math it would converted to ( as you were undoubtedly taught in school to do once algebra kicks in and kiddie math is behind you ) or written originally either this way:

8 / 2(2+2)

or more likely this way:

8
---------
2(2+2)

If you remember algebra the objective absolute answer is a no brainer. You first solve the top and bottom then do the division last.

So you end up with:

8
------
2(4)

8
---
8


Correct answer is thus 1, 16 is an unequivocally erroneous answer.

Sorry Simon but the correct answer is 16 as division takes precedence.

because we knew that they’re having slower success

LUUUUUUUUUUUULLLLLL!!!!!! It's not "slower success," they're just not forced to bring out bigger guns because you are zero fucking competition. They plan well in advance what technologies they can bring to the table based on pressure from rivals. There is no need to unleash all their tricks if they don't have to. Because you (AMD) aren't threatening them from a performance standpoint, they have no reason not to just relax and do the slow burn.

And now, by cheapening your cards, you THINK that's gonna make nVidia think you're scared, but it also lets consumers know you're scared. nVidia has no problem raising their prices in that case because people WILL pay those prices. You just handed them more profit, and you're STILL not competitive, and nVidia is free to keep playing the long play, ready for anything you might decide to come up with in response.

I miss ATi.

You can already get the 5700 for $300 and the differences in cards is very minor, I bought one and love it and it was $100 cheaper than the Nvidia 2060 super. I run 4k in ultra in most games, what more can you want?

That cracked me up, "Panic Lake". I expect you will need a new motherboard with this new group of processors. You would think Intel would actually realize that making people constantly change motherboards is an added expense that few want to bother with. I agree with everyone else too, the PCIE 4.0 standard is a waste atm.

Cracks me up that anyone thinks they can do ray tracing on a 2060 or 2070. I guess if you want to turn your system into a turtle, you can do it.

NO THANK YOU, I will be using the vastly superior AMD cards from now that AMD has completely crushed Nvidia's performance.

Is this a joke?

Maybe he likes 65db loud fan noises? Don't judge <3

The joke is on you. Built a new system and got the AMD 5700 card for $300, that is $100 less than the Nvidia's overpriced 2060 Super for basically the exact same performance. Oh and the card is NOT noisy whatsoever.
