So GMG has a pretty good 20% off deal, but say the release date is Thursday the 23rd? It's coming out on the 21st, isn't it?

Because when you think Reservoir Dogs, you think action and shooting.

If we're talking about an actual, complete game, I'm going to go with neither.

problem with limit theory is that i thought it was possible.. or maybe like Fox Mulder "I want to believe"

its definitely one of the downsides of being a gaming fan that follows gaming news, because you hear about something and its like - oh yeh, that sounds cool as shit... and then the years slowly go by and then its like - oh damn, its just full of shit..

Yeah, sadly. I was hopeful this would turn into something cool, but I don't think it'll ever be anything. If I was Josh I'd just release what I had as a tech demo and call it quits. But then again I'm only in it for $20. I'm sure people who coughed up a few thousands bucks would probably be pretty pissed at that point.

Haha, love it. I can just imagine the looks of surprise at Zenimax. "He's suing us???"

$700 for a card that is still not fast enough for 4k or high quality/resolution VR...

Buy two!

They don't do SLI anymore, do they?

Yes, but only 2. Any more than that may technically work, but is no longer supported and performance scaling is basically non-existent.

Ah, okay. Thanks for explaining.

Didn't all previous games in the series have grain on by default?

As long as it's an option ... fine by me. I go forth and back on whether I like it, depends on the specific implementation too.
Yep, all the previous ME games have that option, and you can turn it on or off.

They did? I don't remember that at all... yay, getting old!

Why is your custom game even allowing XP if a player is inactive? Didn't you program it to do that? If so, can't you just program it to NOT do that, and make people play if they want XP?

I'm not sure why the scale is somehow

People abusing the shit out of it -------------- no xp in custom game mode!

with literally nothing in between?

Hey Blue,

Can you see if you can email nin? He didn't set up the ability to email him through his user id. He's been gone for quite a while now...

I contacted him and was relieved to find out he's okay at least... he says he's taking a break, which is hopefully temporary.

I appreciate it, Blue. I was starting to get a bit worried. Thanks for checking up on him.

Hope you come back soon, nin!

Good to see a nice set of options, but why Film Grain? This isn't LA Noire, or Resident Evil. It's a sci-fi game...

The IBM/Mac story is a nice story until you realize that they let all of their Mac home users choose to migrate over first, obviously reducing the number of tech calls they were making since they were now using a system they knew how to use. They get to conveniently leave out re-training as part of that deployment cost. They also leave out the part where IBM's infrastructure was built ready to host a mac environment which most offices are not remotely equipped for... There are just entirely too many factors overlooked in that IBM story to actually apply any conclusions to another company. Converting a company from PC to Mac is an absolute nightmare and is definitely not cheaper for anyone involved. Mac's, specifically Macbooks, make sense for developers... and really no one else.

Not only that, but how fucking terrifying was IBM's previous infrastructure? I've worked with dozens of IBM contractors and few, if any, had much good to say about the inner workings of IBM's IT. It was basically described as a grandiose clusterfuck. When an IBM contractor supports an app of yours as SAAS, they typically do it from their own IBM laptops, so if something fucks up, you have to try to fix their shitty hardware. It was rare that I ever saw any of them with anything newer than 3-4 years old.

So yeah, if you go from the absolute administration of hell to one with brand new Macs, it's undoubtedly going to look a lot nicer, and in the short term show up great on your balance sheets.

In any case, good for IBM, they saved some money, so maybe they can stop firing tens of thousands of their people.

In my company, I am fighting hard to get rid of all these Apple pieces of shit. The phones are bad enough.

There are reasons to complain about Macs and about Apple in particular. But IBMs well documented switch to Macs for enterprise resulting in drastically lower total cost of ownership makes it pretty clear that Macs are a viable enterprise computing device. They cost more up front, but they also require vastly less user and technical support, leading to smaller IT budgets overall.

Please. I have ~ 30 users that use Macs, and they open just as many, if not more, tickets as my Windows users do. Their apps are just as shitty as the Windows apps, but now you have to find another way to fix it.

I've also been trying to unlock two iPads where the users forgot their unlock codes, and literally no solution works. They won't go into recovery mode, they won't go into DFU mode, nothing. No combination of arcane button presses works. (And why can't you just boot into a simple menu where you CHOOSE which mode you want? Oh wait, Steve Jobs hated buttons. Ugh.)

I'm taking them to the Apple store tomorrow in the hopes that they can get something done.

"Ready for the enterprise." Uh-huh.
