Hah, like the WASD standard is something to be proud of. ESDF is far superior, you have much quicker and easier access to other hotkeys and your hand rests in a better position. But it's like the Imperial vs Metric system argument. So many people already used WASD, so they just stuck to it, because changing was too hard.

I genuinely don't understand the ESDF argument. I mean, if you prefer ESDF, whatever of course, but why is it supposedly so much quicker and easier access? It's still the same keys. For most normal sized people, they're all within easy reach of your left hand. What does it matter where it "rests?" (so to speak).

I call total bullshit on CBS' 1 million number. There can't possibly be that many people who are so fucking dumb they'll pay 6 bucks for one channel's worth of content WITH ads, when they could pay 8 or 10 bucks and get fucking BILLIONS of hours more content without ads.

$11.99 for what is likely one mission, in a rehashed setting. (I actually loved breaking into the Palisade bank, it was awesome, but going back there... Meh.)

Methinks I will wait for this to hit 75% off.

Today, Square Enix® and Eidos®-Montréal announced that Frank Pritchard, the iconic Deus Ex® character, will return in Deus Ex: Mankind Divided – System Rift, the first Story DLC for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided™.

Huh. And here I thought Frank was secretly Janus. There goes my theory!

Ok? Have you tried it though? It claims "stability" and "performance" improvements so maybe that crap is fixed.

I bought the 30 dollar expansion at the time which made all my characters expansion only, and then watched my game rubberband every 20 seconds. The devs never fixed it because there "was no money", and the game had essentially become unplayable, and just reinstalling Titan Quest was not an option, because all my characters couldn't be used in Titan Quest anymore.

So you'll forgive me for not spending another dime on their promises.

How much bandwidth do you need to stream 2 1080p signals at 90fps? Can someone do that math?

That's not what you want, you lying fucking shitbag. You just want the US to do what you tell it to do already and now that we won't, you're pissy like a little bitch.

Because if we have this "adult conversation", and we tell you "no, you can't have backdoors", you'll throw another fucking tantrum, come up with five more lawsuits and assorted other bullshit, and then next year you'll be whining that you want to "talk about encryption" some more.

You cannot have a fucking backdoor into encryption. (Encryption which, ironically, came into being because you and your fellow fucking "intelligence" agency stooges couldn't stop breaking the fucking law and couldn't stop spying on innocent people.) Period. Full stop. Go the fuck away and never bother us again.

So fuck you. Fuck you with a fucking encrypted iPhone, right in your fucking eyesocket.

tl;dr Fuck you, James Fucking Comey.

It should be called the Dark Mod, but shit, I'll give it a go.

(ten minutes later) so, apparently it's not out until 9/2, in case some of you are trying to find it. Smart, nVidia, because I will DEFINITELY remember to download this two days from now. Rolleyes

Yup. With the button I eluded to, once you press the button, then it expands in lieu of there being a big wall of hidden text.


Oh, I get what you're saying. I don't think Chatbear (the forum software) does that. We were happy to just get an ignore feature, okay??!!!

While I wouldn't buy a DS4 controller for this, I happen to have 2 of them, and I fucking love them, syncs with bluetooth on pc just fine. And ergonomically it's the best controller I've ever used.

Man, really? It's a huge improvement over the DS3 for sure, but I still don't like how cramped it feels. The Xbone controller still feels a lot better. I guess my hands are too large.

Even if Amazon kills Fedex, so what? The packages still need to be delivered, Amazon will still need to hire drivers, and there'll be a ton of freshly fired drivers available who need a job.

You'd probably see the same guy delivering your stuff, only now he's wearing an Amazon uniform rather than a Fedex uniform.

I've actually always wondered why Amazon didn't just buy Fedex.

They looked into it and didn't like the overall process in which the Express network works I believe it was. The other thing we aren't talking a lot of planes here and they don't want a lot of planes. The planes are just to move some product around quickly in a pinch. They want to be able to ship ground from a very local warehouse on finished goods and be smart enough to be able to replenish the warehouse via line haul. Air is for the things that don't work out as planned and that will cost them a lot more, money losers they'll see.

That makes very good sense. Thanks

Hopefully they switch to idTech after Fallout 4. I think that was the plan? That would mean that:

a) game would run better, look better, and be overall less buggy due to engine issues/limitations.

and

b) multiplayer shouldn't be TOO hard to hack in later as the bones for the net code will all still be there.


One can dream on part b).


Hadn't heard that, but it would be fantastic, if true. So sick of gamebryo/"creation".


It would also mean no mods. So....

You mention Arkham Knight. I can't remember, that was port issues, right?

Yeah, that was the one where they stopped selling it for six months because of how terrible it was. It's often mentioned as an example of why people should never preorder, but it was a game that had two good previous versions already, so it's easy to see why people would bite on it.

And yeah, the PS4 version is great.

I just wish Amazon would stop shipping Prime merchandise through the shithole that is US Postal system. "It'll be delivered Monday!" Wednesday arrives...[crickets as the postal twunt rolls by]. Call Amazon:
"It says it was out for delivery on Monday."
"Yes, yes I know it does. It has said that Monday, Tuesday, and now today."
"We'll reship the item overnight for you."
"While I appreciate that, is there anyway that I can get my Prime purchases not shipped through the godawful postal system?"
"We have many different methods of ensuring that we meet your two day Prime guarantee and it's not possible to pick just one or exclude one."
"Right."

Add the following line to your chat conversation:

"I pay 99 dollars a year to get stuff here in two days. Not three days, or four days, or five days. Two days. If you can't guarantee that, I might as well quit Prime."

This line is typically followed with them going: "Sorry sir, would a $10 credit / free month of prime on your account suffice?"

Also, ALWAYS make a screenshot of the "GUARANTEED DELIVERY ON SEPTEMBER 1st!" window. Then, when you contact them and they try to pull the "technically it's two days from when it's readied in the warehouse for shipping, sir." on you, you show them the screenshot, and voila. Credit, or new items shipped overnight for free, flow your way.
