It's on the taskbar.

After installing Windows 10, the little white and black icon that looks like a paper bag with the MS logo on it is the app store.

I actually like it a ton, really only having two minor complaints.

But I've had it for two months and don't even know where the Windows Store is, let alone have any interest in finding it and finding things on it. I've never seen anything in W10 advertising it or pushing me to it or even linking to it. I literally wouldn't know it exists if not for everyone discussing what a failure it is (those could also be connected.)

I have absolutely no memory of that. I must have deleted it as soon as Win 10 was installed and it has never been a problem. I don't even know how to get to the app store, such is my apathy and its unobtrusiveness. I don't expect it's hard to find but it hasn't gotten in my way.

I expect DirectX 12 implementations will improve. UMP probably will too, but I have zero faith in Microsoft being either willing or able to make a palatable retail service.

Isn't it amazing how stupid he is? On the one hand you're feeding him, but on the other the responses are so comical I can actually see the appeal of stringing him along...

Him using the phase "the weak-minded males out there including all those coming out of the woodwork on this site" is especially humorous/ironic...that part made me laugh out loud. What an idiot.


He's quite something, isn't he? I don't want to feed him but it's good to see nonsense like his, MA's and Wraith's get called out by a number of people occasionally. To remind and reassure myself that the lunatics haven't taken over the asylum as much as anything.

Even if this theory - that AS and others are in it for the money - was true, and not another lame -chan born narrative, it is irrelevant. The issue at hand - combating the extreme gaming misogyny - is bigger than that.

Thank you. Even if the criticism of Sarkeesian was valid (and I'm not aware of her doing anything more than be good at her job), it does nothing but avoid discussing the actual issue.

What do you mean? He went with her...


Yes but she was the pilot, as if she just automatically becomes Chewie's boss because of space racism holding wookies back :-) Why was she not the co-pilot? As yet unspecified family ties to Han? Or is this just not how Millennium Falcons work?

I assumed it more along the lines of:

Rey: I need to find Luke.
Chewy: RAR RAR! ("I gotta ship, let's roll.")

Honestly, your conversation was the first time I ever questioned who now owned the Falcon. I didn't think it was discussed either way. Is it because she's sitting on stage left (screen right)?


The left seat is the pilot's seat in aircraft except helicopters and I'd always got the impression that Han was in control. I suppose that doesn't have to mean anything about ownership or command, it could simply be that Chewie is expert at navigation/whatever while Han and Rey are both good at actual ship control.

"Extremist." God knows when people having equal rights became extremist.
Kind of like how people label sexual practices as political. Or even better...as a choice. I've often wondered how much homosexual sex these nutbag fundamentalists have to engage in before they *chose* women instead. Never had one admit that he consciously chose women over the sweet taste of a man... >shrug< Then again, I live in a state where oral sex between a man and a woman is actually illegal. ROFL. Backwards rednecks.

Please, you don't *choose* to be heterosexual. That's the natural order of things as dictated by the Old Man Upstairs, whereas you have to choose to accept the Devil's handshake and be one of them homosapiens what the Pastor warns us about.

Honestly, choosing to be straight. That's the dumbest thing I've ever heard. Heterosexuality is not a choice!

(I think that's pretty much the dumb-ass rationale; that being hetero is the only natural, real sexuality and anything else is a choice.)

The thing that bugged me about Star Wars 7 is why did Rey, not Chewie, get the Millennium Falcon?

If you think the SJWs want equal rights, I've got a bridge to sell you. It's all about the elimination of men.

When you say "the SJWs", who specifically do you mean? What is your definition of an SJW?

Ugh. One Angry Gamer. The blog that constantly pretends that gamergate isn't just a hate mob out to defend jiggling tit physics in games to the death.

But but but there was that study that proved* GamerGate isn't a hate mob!

* Well, misinterpreted either through incompetence or dishonesty by One Angry Gamer.

Edit: to be fair, I wouldn't call GG a hate mob either, which isn't to say I hold them in high regard.

The Vive is looking better all the time, although I wonder what its EULA is like. I don't see Valve as being as bad as Facebook with regards to privacy.

The lack of content and lack of support overlap is going to hold me back for now anyway. By overlap, I mean games working on both the Rift and the Vive because I'm not paying this sort of money if there's a risk of backing the wrong horse.

Na, he just created another account. Meet rudra. Or was that /s as well?


Sarcasm? What sarcasm?

I wasn't sure if that was him. Now that I think of it, I should have listed both aliases.

Nooooo!

Can anyone recommend PC gaming sites I can visit instead of here?

Ehhh although now that the site's closing anyway, to be honest damn will I be glad to be rid of you, Blue. You are an annoying pest, a smug arsehole whose barely concealed love for consoles and the Wii U in particular has been getting on my nerves ever more for years now. Good riddance. If it wasn't for Cutter and harlock, I'd have stopped visiting years ago - and one of them's been banned because you kept losing arguments with him.

Hmm, that's odd.

I have to assume this is part of that new joystick they plan to make for Star Citizen. They plan to offer a few additional features from what I've heard but I expect this is close to what they'll look like.

I'm surprised they said anything about this if they don't also have the Star Citizen version ready to present.

Maybe it's with VR in mind now that the Oculus Rift is arriving for some people, since the Hands-On concept will help blindfolded gamers handle more complicated control schemes.

I feel like the FBI won this round. They didn't get properly smacked down in court, now this issue will come up again and the general population won't care as much.

I have the phone in my pocket nearly all the time so the always-on display is normally off but when I want to check the time saving one button press isn't a big deal and I doubt waking the phone is really much of a battery hog either. It's a tiny benefit for a tiny loss.

Yes, playing your steam games that require GPU and CPU horsepower far outstripping any hardware that Android supports sure makes sense...[not]...;)

Yes I would imagine Papers Please would bring an 8-core 2.3Ghz phone to its knees (not).

I'm not sure how much use this is unless laptops running Android become a thing for equivalent control. Maybe I've missed a trend, I hadn't heard of Remix OS before.

Scottish Martial Arts wrote on Mar 20, 2016, 15:52:
If the focus on consequences to a specific identity group upsets you, then just replace "LGBTQ issues" with "the security of your banking data" in the headline and perhaps the case will feel more relevant to you personally.

That is my problem with this. It makes a reasonable case in my opinion, but it really comes down to bad security particularly affecting oppressed groups - so making it about specifically about LGBTQ feels a bit like somebody wanting to insert themselves into the conversation. This principle applies to everybody, albeit with varying potential consequences.

Security is an LGBTQ issue that is worth discussing in some circles, but Apple's fight with the FBI isn't especially relevant to this group.

I have been having a blast playing The Culling. It is one of the most intense games I've played in a very long time. Not for the feint of heart though, you have to be really good to survive a 16 player FFA. If you're below average or average in skill, might not be a good buy for you, but still fun to watch on www.twitch.tv

It's on the top of my list - i'm really loving these types of games at the moment. But i just can't pull myself away from BR/KOTK mode in H1Z1! Still gotta try the free BR mode in ARK too!

It seems like a good game mode, whatever it's called, the shrinking Free-For-All. Battle Royale? I've rarely found teamwork satisfying on public servers so a good FFA game could hit the spot.
