The amount of anti white racism has ramped way up in the last few years, but that doesnt get touched. The recent anti jew stuff goes ignored too. Ya know, both ignored for "reasons".

"ChokeDaJews" or something like that running around. odd spelling, but you get the idea.

Agree on all counts, but let me add this: Gaming communities have always policed themselves. Having the developer ban anything they don't like will lead to chaos and resentment, eventually. Sure, the guys with the N word in their names will rightfully get banned, but they'll just extend it and keep extending it until everyone named Obama, Obummer, and anything with Monkey in the name will get banned too. It always goes this route. Always.

The road the hell is paved with good intentions.

This is wonderful news !
Remember fondly when I played Baldur's Gate Dark Alliance 1 & 2 with the PCSX2 emulator (high resolution, instant load/save states, mouse & keyboard reconfigured)
If successful, maybe they'll continue the saga ?



One bad thing about the emulator is that the videos are incredibly choppy/garbled and some of the sounds/visual effects are improperly emulated. I always wanted a proper pc version and I'm excited to see them doing it. Hope they'll do Dark Alliance 2 as well, since it was the better of the two, imho.

Had to read the article through to see the context. Turns out he was talking about Zombi Unicorn, the chick that got away with appearing totally nude on twitch by claiming painting her nude body was art. Angered a lot of people, women included. Also, it was a twitter post, and to be honest, everyone says shit on twitter that is awful...that's why twitter is there. It's a hate dumping ground. Doesn't excuse it, but it's not as shocking as they make it out to be.

I've used a lot of mice, but I think it comes down to how big your hands are. I finally found the perfect one in the Roccat Kone series. They're chunky, wide, and my hand doesn't cramp up when playing for long periods as time as it does with other mice. This is specifically the exact model I bought, which is a bit wider than most:

Also, the placement of the buttons on the side is perfect. No mid game adjustments needed.

I was curious, so I looked up the video where the supposed "rape" of the character occurred, and it was really no different than a million other cliched "slot this memory stick in your brain computer" jokes that every Shadowrun game has ever made. I've read plenty of cyberpunk novels through the years that pull the old innuendo card out when putting memory sticks/card/drives into people's head/neck computers. It's an ancient, old trope.

These people wouldn't have lasted long in my old DM's highschool group. We had one dude who would strip down and run around town flashing people and pantsing the party members. People sure are sensitive nowadays.

Arguing about whether it takes some miliseconds extra to launch a game one way versus another, or nitpicking about a few MB of RAM and CPU usage that doesn't even cause your processor to come out of idle, seems kinda fruitless.

Maybe I missed a few replies somewhere, but I don't believe anyone - or at least me - is worried about the time each launcher takes to start themselves or a game. What most gamers care about is what you get by using each launcher and what you have to put up with. Epic lacks forums and a workshop and any community, yet it gives deeper discounts and more free games than Steam, which has those community options but doesn't give nearly as much back.

I wish we could go back to the days when you could go into a store and buy a boxed PC game, take it home, install it from the disc and play it without a "launcher", but as of 2010, I stopped resisting this new digital future and started buying on Steam.

You could pirate games and get CD cracks, which I did for a very long time, but at 45 years old, I no longer have the time or patience to hunt "clean" ones down.

Poll time!

How many Blues users actually launch the store before launching the game they already own? As opposed to having a shortcut for the game directly?

You'd think that most, if not all here would just launch games directly to forgo the marketing that happens anytime you open a store to play a game (even if you disable the popups, you're far more likely to browse other games or checkout current deals when interacting with a store, rather than a game shortcut).

Slick - launches games directly via windows shortcuts and never looks/cares what store its on other than when purchasing. You?

I launch only through shortcuts. I also have non-steam games (Dosbox, emulators, old pre-digital age PC games) set up to run through the Steam overlay as a desktop shortcut so that I can get in-game chat.

Really, all I do is leave Steam up on one of my other monitors and when friends message me or I want to share something, I can easily call up the window and begin a chat. GOG I rarely bother with since everyone I know is on Steam and GOG's interface, especially its chat, feels clunky to me. As for EGS, I tried a couple games on it and didn't like it. Any game that was exclusive on it (Most recently Metro Exodus) I just waited a year for it to appear on Steam.

As an aside, I don't think this exclusivity chest-beating will help EGS much. It's a bad look for them. A better idea would be to swear to get rid of exclusives and instead reach out to customers and work more on getting equivalents to Steam set up, like game specific forums, game specific workshops, and a friends network.

I'm still shocked that anyone would actually *fear* internet-based death threats. How long has this method of communication been around? I've been online since '96 and this is an every day occurrence on both social media and in any and all nerd-related forums, especially gaming and comics, where autism runs rampant. How any person(s), especially a legitimate company full of college educated professionals, thought these threats were in any way serious, is beyond me.

It's far more likely the "company" was just a scam operation looking to get people's credit card info and now that they obtained it, they are conveniently "deleting their social media over fear of fat unwashed basement dwellers killing them".

On World News tonight a couple weeks ago they had a guy on there who said at best the vaccine would only be good for a year before the virus would change to the point where it would no longer be affected. Point I'm making is, this vaccine won't change much. If people want "Normal" they will have to keep getting it once a year, every year, like what we now do with the regular flu vaccine...and even then, it will never get rid of it. Ever. It's never going away. People learn to live with it or huddle in fear the rest of their lives. That's the choice.

The new mutation is covered by the current vaccine. Given that the vaccine is based on year-old virus, that's a good sign.

"The Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine expresses the full-length Spike protein of the SARS-COV-2 virus, allowing for the generation of neutralizing antibody responses to multiple domains of the protein," the statement reads in part."The full-length Spike protein is 1,273 amino acids long, so while recent variants involve multiple mutations, for instance up to 8 amino acid changes in the spike protein of the B1.1.7 strain, these represent less than a 1% difference from the spike protein encoded by Moderna’s vaccine."

...

Likewise Pfizer said in a statement, “To date, we have found consistent coverage of all the strains tested,” and it’s now testing against the new strain in the UK.

There have already been reinfections. The doc they had on there 2 weeks ago even stated that all viruses change year to year, and Covid will change like this many times, resulting in the current vaccine becoming ineffective and requiring a new one to be formulated and administered. All this from ABC news, world news tonight, which is the only place I get my news anymore (6:30pm, right after the local news).

Well as the song goes....You load 16 tons and what do you get? Another day older and deeper in debt..... At the snails pace the vaccine is coming I don't think there's anything to really rah rah about yet. Wtf aren't governments rolling out their militaries to create vaccine centers to administer it? It's not like they're doing anything else in most places. You don't need doctors or nurses to jab a needle in someone's arm. Just one or two of them on hand to oversee everything in case of an anaphylactic reaction. Here they're talking about only having about 75% of the population vaccinated by the end of July or August which with our government's track record - both provincially and federally - with this sort of thing we'll be lucky if it's actually 25% of the population. For a government that's quick to shut everything down they don't seem all that keen on rolling this out ASAP. I'm betting once Biden takes over he'll ramp up the fuck out of it and make that happen. Hopefully that'll give the rest of the gov'ts out there the kick in the ass they so sorely need.

You can tell the people talking about that rail system in cyberpunk didn't get far in the story yet, because that chick who leads the Voodoo Boys tells you that during the last corporate war, the system was taken offline, gutted and destroyed and, much like the Grand Imperial Mall, was never finished due to it.

Exactly. While it is not a perfect game, it is fun. I currently not really fond of the bullet sponge gameplay. I also wanted cyberware to be more involved. IE...You get to chose one set of arms and that is it. Later.

Headshots or bust, if I'm head shoting it's almost always a one shot kill.

If you max crafting and start to learn the systems, enemies are never bullet sponges, even on hard. I currently have a 1,700 DPS smart sub machine gun (iconic) that one shots everything. I even killed the second to last boss in the game in about 3 seconds. He didn't even last half the 30 round clip of that SMG. On hard.

Most of the people who experienced the file size limit corruption are those who've hacked the game and given themselves an absurd number of items and|or quantities of items. All that stuff has to store somewhere, so CDPR decided it should go into the save file. Sure, one could argue, CDPR should've known people would cheat, but it's not their responsibility to fix self-inflicted pain. That said, they did correct the issue so people can go back to older saves and hack to their heart's delight.

That's what I theorized. I have been crafting like crazy for 80 hours and my file size on my latest save is only 5.25mb
