Triggers me almost as much as folks who say their game "lags" when the FPS drops and news outlets affixing "gate" to any every sort of scandal.

The one that makes me rage is "literally unplayable" for a 2-3 FPS drop. I seriously want to start throwing shit when I read that...


Sometimes I want to literally strangle kids (please don't take that out of context, because that sounds really bad...lol) when they don't get 30fps in a game and declare it unplayable. The sense of entitlement on these little shits nowadays is outrageous! I wish DOS wasn't dead and they had to configure IRQs and DMAs and tweak their autoexec.bats and config.sys'! Try squeezing the mouse, cd-rom AND sound card all in HIGH memory while having 610k of conventional memory free before you start bitching about frame rates children! - is what I would say if they had any fucking clue whatsoever as to what I was saying in the first place! Grrrr! And get THE FUCK off my lawn! I don't care if it's winter and it's brown! GTFO it anyway!

sounds like you people need to get laid, or have a beer, or smoke a joint.. something like that

My case is made before I even posted! I wish everything was that easy!


=-Rigs-=

(still quoting you)

Also that's what pisses me off about "Beta" anymore. It's no longer about beta testing a game anymore and all about PR/Marking bullshit instead of having a 'open week/weekend'.
Remember when game companies would would have a Alpha Test (now called Early Access), and then have a real Beta Test to see how games performed in the hands of thousands of player?

Ok so a co-worker and brother in law introduced me to this thing called bourbon, and let me tell you, holy shit this stuff is amazing!

Hmm, lets see if you're saying the same thing tomorrow morning!

So after some drunken co-op with Batz, I'm toasted and gonna go try to make a taco salad and take my contacts out. HAPPY NEW YEAR! I hope something good happens to all of you fine folks (yeah even you Cutter and Space Captain) this year.
Blue, all I would change to the site is this:
Give us an option to donate to you so we can either get a t-shirt or rid of ad's. Beyond that: I'd love to see more editorials about your gaming habits (beyond solo'ing Rock Band with 4 instruments at once).
Beyond that, I hope you are all safe as we ring in the new year, and hope/pray we don't have another 2016 for 2017. Love ya all good/bad!

Blues needs a Patreon! (AND MORE T-SHIRTS! Mine is starting to really show it's age!)

FUCK UPVOTE/DOWNVOTE. KEEP IT SIMPLE. When you confuckulate a perfectly simple system you're asking for more bullshit then was previously intended/desired.

Exactly. Then you get people tailoring posts to stoke their own ego and no one actually discusses things after that.

How would that be any different from your posts now? ~ZING!

(I couldn't pass it up, even though he won't see it... Idea unless one of you guys quotes it!)


=-Rigs-=

You mean like this?

*hugs Rigs*
Ok got the contacts out and cooked dinner (does anyone else really get into music/singing when toasty?) Be safe folks, 4 hours left to go. And has anyone checked on Betty White?

Won't happen. They are just patenting an idea. Like the drone thing.

You realize that they started trials of the drone thing in the UK this month, yeah?

Oh, and...

"That's no moon!"


-Jn-

Yeah but here in the US there are still two huge issues to overcome.

1) Where I work (CVG5) is the post office for our Amazon Hub in Northern Kentucky/Cincinnati area, and we are within the 15 mile no fly zone of the airport.
2) Birds. Birds were taking down the drones like a kid taking candy from a unguarded plate on the front porch on Halloween night.
3) Theft/Public Safety. Especially here in the Kentucky/Cincinnati area these drones are going to be target practice. Idiots here love to shoot at anything they can, and if I can score a Ipad or pair of shoes or whatever for hitting the target so much the better. Not to mention idiot children/people/animals who will run up to the mini helicopter and loose some fingers/limbs.

So Nvidia is pimping ME Andromeda, even though the whole HDR thing for consoles runs ATI.

At the end of the day we've all been assholes and idiots on the internet.
If arguing with people on the internet was the absolute worst thing going on in your universe, I envy you and wish I was as well off as you.
There have been worse people on this site (and don't even get me started on the internet), just count your blessings because we have 3 days left of this horrible year.

Heavy Gear has been around since 1997, and I believed used a version of the Interstate 76 engine which was a version of the engine used on the Mechwarrior 2 series at Activision.

33 bucks for a EA game that will have cross platform multiplayer, no single player? No thank you.

Rather have a Earth/Starsiege game for the price.

Here's the thing.

1 person does NOT create a game. 1 person does NOT have the sole vision to rekindle the magic that made them legendary in the first place.

How many games have been trainwrecks to meh games gambling on the name of one of the original members of a game that did great?

*goes and looks for his Game Gods PC Gamer issue and realizes that in the world of gaming, they have fallen quite a ways*

Ok my question is this...

What good does it do to announce you are going to do something, instead of just DOING it and then ANNOUNCING IT?!?
