I did it this morning, and it never showed. I then looked under rules. You have to have either game of year edition, or certain DLC....which I dont got...!

Huh. Do you remember which DLC?

Borderlands 2 Game of the Year Edition (“Game”), or Borderlands 2 and the Captain Scarlett and her Pirate’s Booty, Mr. Torgue’s Campaign of Carnage, Sir Hammerlock’s Big Game Hunt and Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragons Keep Downloadable Content packs for Borderlands 2

Pretty much the first thing (section 1.i) of the rules linked by Blue.

Went and killed Knuckledragger (he drops a blue, nothing special), and their website of course still says I haven't killed him.

Why would it actually work with Gearbox running it? Good job, fellas.

But Pinball FX2 is free in the Windows 8 store.

As it is on steam.


I guess he confused me. Because he said it was 66% off, which implies not free.

I confuse easily, so its ok.

I hate to stoke the fire, cause I know most people love to hate Win 8 and Microsoft. But Pinball FX2 is free in the Windows 8 store. It only comes with the mars table, you purchase the others ala the 360. But you can get free purchases from Bing rewards just by searching with Bing. So, I have the full suite in PinballFX2 for free...!

OS updates now are incremental...And there were a lot of other major incremental improvements in Win 8 from a OS standard.
Seriously, except from 3.1 to 95, and then to the NT kernal, all windows updates have been incremental. Why are people expecting other difference.

Re: Verno and copy. Pausing is amazing.

Re: Burito, yeah, so you ask me to name a few and I do, and include links to features I like, then harass me for not linking to tech articles. Despite the fact that the last one is a tech article, and the kernel link would obviously be a tech article if I was not to lazy to find it. Grasping at straws.

And no, the searching is not the same in Win 7 but with different indexing parameters. That just goes to show you know nothing about . the system, and that the claim that you can do the same things in Win 7 is laughable.

And so what if the task manager is close to process explore. Which I have both it and process monitor on my desktop. Wonderful programs. The more featured task manager is awesome, but not everything. You are now complaining that the new improvements built into the OS are not completely new ideas thought up by nobody else? Or done nowhere else? Then if that has to be the case, why the F are people asking for Linux to be better at gaming? That is done on the PC with Windows already. According to your argument, it is a waste of time then! The Linux OS better figure out a way to make a ham sandwich from air to actually bring something new!

I've seen the list of things that MS has added to win 8, they are mostly LOL. But if you want to list off a few of your favorites, go for it.
My favorites:
Improved file manager and transfer options. Including pausing:


Improved task manager, with crazy amount of new features for power users:



Improved memory usage


New kernel improvements....That linux and Mac have had forever. I got tired of finding links.

Major improvements to the built-in search feature. To find a file, movie, music, or program, all I have to do is hit the meta (Windows) key, and type in a few letters, and I have it.

I have done this test with literally dozens of people who argue about it, and we assign 10 tasks of finding a certain file, loading a specific application, finding a file containing a certain word, changing a configuration setting, etc, etc. With the improvements in Win8 I am always an order of magnitude faster then people who do not use that feature, or the more limited version in Win 7. It makes the system more multi-tasking friendly! Really, get over that it is different and try it and give it a fair chance!

Despite the interweb people screaming how bad Win 8 is, and how doomed Microsoft is, they continue to report profit (including the Windows division). Win 8 is selling decently well, enough to be profitable, which is great considering there is no actual reason to upgrade to Win 8. And again, Win 8 added a lot of great things.

I think all the Microsoft naysayers really should look at the facts and not the hyperbole spit out about Microsoft on the internet. No they are not perfect. And yes, it is human nature to root against the big man and for the underdog. But open your eyes people!

Creston wrote on Sep 9, 2013, 10:15:
Really? Microsoft spent what was it... 10 billion dollars? to counter the few hundred grand that goes with having to have some meetings and draw up some contracts?

And that's assuming you even believe the transaction cost theory in the first place (remember people, just because a Nobel Prize winner said something doesn't make it true,) and in this day and age of the mega-conglomerates, it's increasingly a non-issue. Microsoft and Nokia already have lawyers and notaries and the likes on the payroll, so making these guys do some work for their salaries doesn't somehow magically make hidden costs appear.

In any case, it's a doomed venture, much like basically every Microsoft hardware venture has been a doomed venture.


Microsoft bought them because it increases there patent portfolio. Nokia had a very large patent portfolio when it comes to mobile phones. It gives Microsoft huge leveraging power over other companies when negotiating. And, depending on the phone manufacture, in many cases Microsoft is making more money from patent royalties on Android phones sold then Google is! This does not account for the ecosystem, just the actual hardware unit sold.

And I really am loving the Surface and the new Windows Phones. I hope they do well!

Just take a look at any landscapes, or pretty much anything from Syberia 1/2 (yes, with a y), and tell me SOME video games are not art.

Or get a real phone, with built-in wireless charging. You do not even have to plug it in, just set it on your nightstand and it is charging!

And InBlack, my fancy smart phone last 2 days of regular use, ya know, unless I watch movies on it. So yes, yours might last 5 days, but it can not do what mine does, and finding an hour to charge the phone over a 2 day period is not all that hard, seeing is I sleep more then an hour over 2 days!

I've always wondered if there was a better way to build roofs on standard homes as to preclude maintenance entirely or minimize if for extreme periods. It's always seemed to me that the roofing industry does its best to ensure that they're never out of work.

If you do not live in the north where you get water that freezes and damages roofs, or on the coast where you have hurricanes and sideways water, i.e. in the south, or central region of the US, roofs can easily last 30-40 years if you use good quality material and it is installed correctly.

Blue, it is quite possible your home owners insurance will pay for it, or pay for part of it. It protects them from having to pay out large claim fees in the event of major water damage.

Just FYI for all my fellow nerds. The currently available remastered in HD version of Star Trek The Next Generation are available for "free" streaming via Amazon Prime. So if you happen to have an Amazon prime account (and if you are in certain countries, why would not not?!) then you can check the currently released ones available!

They only have the remastered version of seasons 1 & 2 available at Prime, but season 3 should be there soon!

I appreciate that if you like the new start menu in Windows 8 is a personal preference, but you are just wrong!

It is awesome! Because you have been using the old traditional start menu with your mouse, which is just horrible inefficient!

With my Windows 8, if I want to load up the calculator I hit the meta key on my keyboard (the Windows key), type the letter 'c' and hit enter, boom, done. If I want to load up steam, meta key 'ste' enter.
If I want to load up something like inSSider, which I do not use often, there is no reason to have it pined to my start screen, or at the top of the old start menu, I just hit meta key ins enter. I can actually do that fast enough and hit enter, it does not actually display the search results, it just launches the program.

I appreciate that you like it but you are just wrong. Good luck training regular users to use search for everything because the USER INTERFACE has poor discoverability and can't multitask for shit despite the fact that everything in the past 20 years has been building on those core concepts. Most people could adjust just fine if they wanted to but really, what the fuck is the point when the new interface doesn't really offer any reason to bother? Yes let's go backward in time for no reason to help Microsoft compete with Apple, that sounds worth my time and money.

The user interface does not have poor discover-ability, that is just silly. Multi-tasking is kind of irrelevant for finding a file, or program, or just searching for something quick and simple.
I.E., you never multitasked on the old start menu, when should you be able to in the new one?

You shouldn't have to memorize a bunch of keyboard shortcuts when the old start, pick what you want to run, voila works just fine. Good luck teaching keyboard short cuts to those who are fairly computer illiterate no matter how many times you show them how to do something.


You do not need to learn keyboard shortcuts!!! You have the Windows Key in nearly every keyboard made for the past 18 years!
You just click it and type the name of whatever you want and you are done. That is not memorizing keyboard shortcuts!

There was a lot more wrong with Windows 8 and Metro than just having a new start menu.

No there was not. It improves everything else. MUCH improved memory and overall system efficiency. Better file transfer dialog and info. Far superior task manager with MANY options for power users in it.

If I want to launch things in the control panel, same way, or files on my computer.

My mom just chimed in with a WTF is Meta? Yes techies could like it, but ahem, most people aren't. But lets not assume you cannot make the old style-desktop deadly efficient + hotkeys. Metro is 70's fugly to boot.

The not to be an ass, which I am, but then your mom and you lack reading comprehension because the first time I said meta key I put the 'windows key' in brackets after it. Because on my linux system the windows key is not the windows key, it is a meta key. And if you guys can not understand something as simple as that, why should we have things designed for you?

Bar none, the meta key + typing a few letters in Windows 8 is far superior in efficiency to older styles, whichever of the older style start menu you prefer.

At least twice a week while working on my system with people in my office will say something along the lines of 'wow, how did you load that so fast' or 'how did you switch to that app so fast', or 'how did you find that file so fast, I did not see you go go my computer c: folder, sub folder, sub folder, etc'.

You can still not like how it looks.
