200 logos? I didn't know there were that many. I really liked the old ones back from early 2000s. I look at them now and they bring back gaming memories from the golden age

So do I. Maybe they can work them into regular rotation. Like 1 a week on the right side of the header or something with a little blurb about it when it was created and used. That would be a nice trip in the wayback machine.

Yeah, not sure why he doesn't rotate them. They're all pretty cool. At the very least, maybe put some old ones up on anniversaries and other related occasions.

"Windows 95 is 25 years old today"

The beginning of the Start menu era.

I think it tool like 5 major versions of the OS before they removed the word "Start" from the menu button and changed it to the Windows icon (Windows Vista?).
But even to this day (and after they removed the menu in Windows 8), we all still call it the Start menu.

"Honey, how do I turn off the computer?"
"Click on Start..."

Never understood the hate for Batfleck. Probably my second favorite Batman/Wayne, right after Keaton. I even enjoyed the director's cut BvS movie. It was a bit lame in certain parts, but I actually liked it better than the snoozefest that was the third Nolan Batman flick.

Same here. I'm in the minority for not being a big fan of the Nolan flicks with Bale. I'm definitely a big fan of West > Keaton > Afleck. I love watching those cheesy 1960s Batman tv shows. The actors really nailed the characters, too. I mean, Cesar Romaro, Bergess Meredith, Vincent Price, Carolyn Jones, Anne Baxter, etc, etc, come on now!

Im like the biggest Fallout1 and 2 fan ever. Im one of "those" people who have played through these two games more times than I would like to admit, and feel that while Bethesda's games have merit (Especially New Vegas, which is made by Obsidian) they have not come close to the greatness of the classic Fallout games, especially Fallout 2.

With all of that said, I could never get into Wasteland and 2. I have no idea why. Something about those games just feels, weird, soulless? I don't know.

I took a chance and bought Wasteland 2, played it for a couple hours, uninstalled it.

I've noticed that the older I get, the less I'm interested in certain genres: story-based isometric crpgs, action hack 'n slash isometric view e.g. Diablo, theme park mmorpgs (I haven't played or seen one worth playing since WoW), turn-based rpg/strategy (e.g. Wasteland, xcom, etc), and some 3rd person spam 'n roll combat oriented action games with boss fights (e.g. God of War).

While I was excited about the announcement of this game (because I really enjoyed the first 2 back in the day), I have this feeling that it just won't keep my attention for long (like Divinity Original Sin 2).

I'm getting old

I'm ok with the fact that current hardware is not powerful enough to make Microsoft Flight Simulator shine.
nothing is wrong with a little future proofing when it comes to video games

That's been pretty much the nature of pc gaming for years, hence the nice bonus when upgrading your hardware. On the other hand, console ports took away that bonus.

Facebook has turned into the virtual cesspool of the world. What started with a good idea became a platform for hate, intolerance, self-entitlement, disinformation, and prejudice. I can't imagine any software/hardware having a requirement to create a Facebook account. It looks like the Index will be on the Steam top 10 list again

If organizations just implement Anti-Harassment policy and Complaint procedure (I mean, most have them now), then it would not be an issue. There are training/guidelines and procedures that are easy to follow. I'm not sure why it's so difficult for some organizations. It's fairly standard now.

Second, reporting harassment can be even more traumatizing than the harassment itself, so if people think a person is just trying to "cancel" another person for other reasons, you're wrong. The various steps that an org and the people involved have to take is very draining and stressful, and usually costs the org a lot of time and money. So put a f'n policy and procedure in place!

Avoiding to hire people who you think are "most likely to file a complaint" is the most idiotic recommendation I've heard yet.

This isn't a sexual thing. This isn't sexual attraction or "can't guys look at women?" situation. It's the hunger for power and attention, which just means they're extremely insecure. Unfortunately for them, power over a woman doesn't work that well anymore (the 1950s are long gone). I think they just need to stick with trying to be the smartest person in the room. At least that side effect can be of use.

and watch the latest update have the feature "sync your clipboard with other computers in the cloud" turned on by default. And no way to turn off clipboard history without going into the registry.

I'm just going to wait until I get a PS5 to play it. I have it for PS4 but I struggled to play it because of the lag and how it made the PS4 sound like a turbine engine (constant fans maxing out rpms). On the other hand, I didn't think the game was anything special. The stealth part of the gameplay was kind of, eh (I've already played Odyssey and they do the stealthy part way better). Also, some of the boss fights were the kind where you have to spam and roll (and die) until you find the specific way to kill them. I'm not the biggest fan of that style of game. But it definitely looks good, and the story seemed ok (if you can get passed Aloy's weird face).

Steam's features haven't been very stable over the past few months because of the pandemic. None of my game updates auto install anymore. I suspect that they're throttling in some regions. Other features like chat are also having issues. And don't get me started on the streaming. It's basically useless right now because of the latency, so I'll typically use Discord. There's hardly any latency when streaming through Discord.

My only surprise (er complaint) was that it wasn't highlighting the power of the new console (which they have been hyping that it's 4x more powerful than the xbox one x). So it was like they didn't put their money where their mouth is. Like @Verno mentioned, the game's graphics look like a game that was released 5 years ago. So I was surprised that they didn't use one of their IPs to highlight the new console's capabilities. Aside from that, I couldn't give a rat's ass about the game because they all kind of play the same. Yeah, I'm the type that likes to see a series evolve in gameplay and technology. But I do know that most gamers expect the same things. The Witcher series is a perfect example of how I like to see a game evolve. The Halo series doesn't even come close to that, so that's why I stopped buying them after Halo 2.

A 4K display takes 4x the power to run, so I wasn't expecting a huge upgrade in graphics.

It's 4x more powerful than the xbox one x, the console that already supports native 4k.
