Why is everyone pretending this is somehow worse under Trump than it would have been under Clinton? Am I missing something?

3. PS4 Pro shitting the bed Nov 14, 2016, 11:06 Creston
 
Man, I wonder what would cause that...

Online Support representative KingGobbo admitted the issue’s existence and suggested a convoluted temporary fix involving switching the console into its Safe mode and changing its digital rights management setting from HDCP 2.2 to 1.4.

Oh, of course.

Could be cool. They release so many of these now, though... I can't keep up!

- lobbying reforms
- congressional term limits
- rebuilding US infrastructure

If he follows through on these (and it looks like it's crumbling away)

None of those fall under the purview of the President though, do they? Congressional term limits would almost certainly have to be voted on by actual Congress, lobbying reform would need to be a law, hence Congress / Senate, and the US infrastructure I'm not sure on, but since it involves money it'd have to go through both Congress and the Senate?

A lot of presidential candidates always promise everything, and people always blindly believe them, without even going "hey, wait a minute. Can the President actually DO anything about that?"

Tyranny is awesome so far. Not the most sprawling rpg I've played, but pretty awesome anyway. The characters and worldbuilding are top notch, can't wait to see where the story will lead.

Cool. It's definitely on my list.

The first level is kinda dull, but the second one is awesome. Huge city, lots of really big buildings to explore, the blood fly infestations are creepy as fuck, lots of loot and lore to find. I've been roaming through it for the last three hours or so, and have got like 50% of the level explored.

Definitely cool

Good. It was a fucking terrible deal. The fact that the countries involved in it had to negotiate the whole thing in secret should how just how much bullshit it was.

Me too! I have also had enough! Wait, what are we talking about? Anti-competitive practices in Windows? Oh. Is that still a thing people find surprising?



As for the win7 update thing (happens on Win8 too btw), yeah it's just fucked up. Fortunately you can still push updates out through SCCM or a WSUS so we can get around it at work, but it's pretty damn irritating.

Thanks for the tip, Hanover, we'll have to give that a try!

Also, the System Update Readiness Tool seems to alleviate the issues on some of the machines I've tried it on.

How bad is the release state?

It runs fine for me on a GTX970 / i5-2500 with 8GB of RAM. Mostly high settings, some medium. I turned on almost all of the bells and whistles except Depth of Field.

There is the occasional area where it chugs badly, but mostly it just plays smooth. I'd guess 40-50 FPSish.

Hmm 980 here... I'd give this game the finger on 40-50 fps.

It's not a twitch shooter, so the rock-solid 60fps really doesn't matter to me here. YMMV, of course.

But a teenage girl making a picture of herself topless is?

I'm glad our judges possess no common sense whatsoever anymore.

Btw, one thing that has struck me as ludicrous so far is the game's absolutely absurd initial load time. It's nearly 3 minutes to get to the menu.

After that, everything is like 5-10 seconds, but three freaking MINUTES to load. That's on a PC with a 500MB/s SSD. I'd hate to see how this game loads on an Xbone...
By initial load time do you mean the very first time you started the game or every time you start the game. Because that would suck, especially since you have it on an SSD.
Dooms first startup was long, but after the first time startup times returned to normal.

Right now it honestly seems to be completely random. It can be 2 minutes one startup, and then 5 seconds the next. It makes no sense whatsoever. I just started up about six times in a row, 4 went fast, and 2 were minutes-long affairs. I sure hope it makes sense to one dude at Arkane...

Other than that, though, I'm loving the game.

Oh hell, yah!!!

I love my state!

When Texas does this, everyone is all like "Man, those fucking dumbass Texans, fuck Texas, who the fuck does Texas think it is, fuck Texas, let's nuke it, fuck Texas!"

And now California is doing something somewhat similar, I bet everyone is lining up and cheering.
