We have a couple of chinapads. Cheap fairly powerful tablets that cost a quarter of samsung or apple prices. Kids use em to play games like pokemon go and i use mine for reading or workshop manuals when im tinkering on my motorbike.

2 years old and no need to change them. SD cards and replaceable batteries mean they will be fine.

Xwing was ok but tie fighter had a better storyline. Xwing alliance has HD packs and is totally playable today. It also has multiplayer that still works and lets you and your mates coordinate epic battles.

Im lucky that i have access to both LTSB and W10 enterprise but im STILL using 7 on my gaming pc. 10 sucks. Ill simply not buy a new CPU until i really have to, even then maybe an oem one that circumvents this.

News Comments > Gearbox Issues Ultimatum to G2A
14. Re: Gearbox Issues Ultimatum to G2A Apr 7, 2017, 03:37 Armengar
 
I always thought G2A was a marketplace rather than a reseller. I didn't know they actually sold from devs/publishers direct. Ironically enough this will make me look at them more.

The problem I have always had with the likes of G2A and Kinguin etc is that you have no idea where the key originated from and that makes a difference for me. If the key originates from a stolen credit card then I want no part in it. The same for "stolen" keys (i.e. leaked employee keys) - not all are cancelled.

If they are simply resold "grey" keys then I'm fine with that; I can order a "thing" from Malaysia (for example) and have it shipped over if I care, why cant I order a "key" and do the same? I could pay some guy in "somewhere" to photograph a key-on-a-box if I so cared so G2A simplifies it.

Cant see the outrage. Afterall, ebay have just as many crooks and thieves trying to sell in the market.

Im a teacher too, I run an FPS games club at school. It is hilarious for "sir" to beat the youngsters (we play TF2 mainly).

I don't know what is worse; a company that sells cheats, or the twits who purchase them.

Can't be anyworse than those who paid for mmo's, steam drm infested malware games or denuvo infested games.

So pirate or GOG things then? Having used steam for a very long time (I have a 5 digit steam ID) I can count on one hand the times that steam DRM has been an issue for me. I remember having to use my mobile as an access point to offline a bunch of people at a lan meeting once, I also remember leaving my mobile at home so I couldn't 2 factor log in too. Apart from that I suppose im lucky enough never to have had an issue.

I have also played D3 since launch night and again have had very few issues in the hundreds of hours played. I cant speak for denuvo - until you mentioned it I had no idea what it was. MMO wise, I don't play any subscription MMOs any more but when I did I was quite aware on the yearly cost and didn't mind paying it for the entertainment return I got. Afterall, time enjoyed wise it was cheaper than drinking wine.

Apart from starcraft I cant think of one that didn't involve grind. I cant comment on the NES games as I never played them.

News Comments > PAYDAY 2 Free Week+
4. Re: PAYDAY 2 Free Week+ Apr 4, 2017, 03:08 Armengar
 
There was a big patch this time last year. The patch changed the skill system radically. Some say for the better othets for the worse. They have also radically changed the difficulty settings too making it quite diverse now.

DLC isnt too bad as you can join games even if you dont have the dlc. I haven't bought any dlc and have a decent time. Cheating is rampant though as the code and checks are lua client side. However being a coop game it isnt really an issue.

Id certainly give it another go.

Im still playing D3 on and off as i have done since launch night. Im yet to play a monk properly. Still a lot of play left in it for me as there is a lot of variation.

My main gripe is lack of storgage space as i want tthe loot to run variations.

Some people will complain whatever happens. Doesnt really matter

News Comments > MS Forcing Win10 on Latest CPUs?
15. Re: MS Forcing Win10 on Latest CPUs? Mar 16, 2017, 12:26 Armengar
 
We use W7 at work, we also have a W10 image (software assurance with full downgrade rights). I hate W10 with a passion. so many things that were easy in W7 are difficult in W10 (from an admin point of view).

simple things such as setting a domain start menu and taskbar are a REAL pain in W10, even the proper GPOs don't work fully as advertised. Edge is a mess in terms of GPOs - even chrome has better enterprise support than edge!

The newer hardware drivers have nothing to do with MS, it is up to the manufacturer to support, not MS. This is some crap move by MS to force people onto their advert platform.

Another sysadmin here and a vote against macs. We had ipads and the hardest thing to do was transfer videos and photos from the tablet to a pc or another mac. Syncing was jot what they eanted as that brought loads of junk to their area (communal tablets). Using standalone cameras they simply used it as a USB device.

The macs didnt use office well, too many crashes so people went back to PCs.
