its a dollar. Even if you play it for 2 hours and have fun, a chocolate bar will last less.

News Comments > Valve Loses AU Legal Dispute
27. Re: Valve Loses AU Legal Dispute Mar 30, 2016, 05:05 Armengar
 
quite easy for valve to implement. If the game has been played for more than 1 hour then the onus would be on the consumer to prove that it is faulty etc. If it has been played for less than 1 hour then the refund stands. Not exactly hard and can be automated (pretty much).

It will be problematic for games that form portions of a bundle (and games within the bundle have been played extensively)

Im not sure about the adults thing. We aren't all shite Im 46 now and can play TF2 pretty decently. I play WoT (WN8 av of 1625) and have gamed for many years.

The kids get annoyed when I beat them at least.

I suppose panel quality also makes a difference. My old XPS15 is 1366x768 but looks absolutely fine. Plus, being a lower res (native) means that its integrated 540m can still play games in a reasonable fashion partly due to a low res.

I'd rather have a better panel than just more pixels (on an inferior panel).

The farms in my neck of the woods are in massive greenhouses that work 24/7. In the winter there are floodlights for the workers.

News Comments > Total War: WARHAMMER Delay; Specs
6. Re: Total War: WARHAMMER Delay; Specs Mar 9, 2016, 07:57 Armengar
 
IMHO rome 2 suffered from the same problem that civ5 did (for me at least), it simply wasn't as good as the previous. Rome 1 was an epic game and got lots of things right. It didn't need a massive improvement, simply an evolution of "drop the click fests". Empire total was was good but the ranged combat was marmite to most.

Shogun 2 pissed me off simply due to the artificial limiters put on you for expansion (to make up for the shoddy AI) mods did fix a lot of this though.


I'll not bother with warcraft as I have no interest in the warcraft universe.

FBI talk to apple, apple help out. FBI want phone unlocking, apple say "get a court order". FBI get a court order, apple hissy fit. FBI leans on DoJ who join in.

Like it or not, FBI went the correct route. Blame the laws not the outcome.

fairly annoying article. whilst 500 is over the top it isn't unexpected. 22 for the raw batteries yes, but what about warranty on those batteries? What about support on your almost 10k digital recorder? These things often have support over and above the 2 year initial. You aren't just paying for the raw component inside you are paying for more - you do (afterall) get more than the battery for 500. If you want to look at eye gouging prices then look at how much SSDs cost for certified use in your SAN (when you can buy identical drives off the shelf with a simple firmware name change that is enough to stop them working at 1/10 the price!)

Plus you could also say an iphone has a $10 battery inside and I wonder how much apple will charge to replace that for you? Same said for a Samsung s6 etc.

there is no excuse for not having your HDDs encrypted. I mean FFS even windows comes with bitlocker for free; Whilst not the best in the world it is better than nothing. SED is hardly new either and we use SED in our SAN (we aren't a big company) the price for SED vs vanilla SAS was not huge.

We have a minecraft and opensim server at school. The kids have access and basically run the server. They mod it, police it and code scripts in opensim. We also run lego C and lego bots. So far we have found it very useful as a teaching tool.

Ironically here in the uk it is worse to use paypal. We have quite a lot of laws helpping consumers using credit cards. But paypal proxy uses your credit card so the law wouldnt help you with a steam purchase via paypal.
