I have the best Microsoft Windows "Game Mode" setup right now. It's called Windows 7 Professional with all of the non-essential bloat removed and on a SSD boot drive. Works beautifully.
OMG OMG OMG, You don't have DirectX 12 for the 4 games that only run on it. Whatever are you to do?

There are FOUR games now that support DX12? Holy shit.

I saw that fucking extension pop the other night. Told it to die in a fire and quickly found and uninstalled it. I'd wondered how it'd gotten on there.

Fuck you, Adobe. You pieces of shit. How you keep managing to keep yourselves alive year after year by convincing corporations that your bloated junk software is essential is truly one of the great world wonders.

Photoshop and After Effects and Premiere are industry standards, dude... thats probably how they stay alive

Well yes, but they're "industry standards" because "everyone uses them", not necessarily because they're the best. It's the same with .pdfs. Everyone uses pdf because "that's what you use." not because it's still the best way of doing things. And when people need to make a .pdf, they automatically think they need $460 worth of Acrobat Pro.

At least, that's how it is in the enterprise.

With the quality way they've been doing updates, turning on game mode will likely just uninstall all your games.

I'm a big time Nintendo fan but I'm sitting this one out.

- Hefty price tag, no games included
- Anemic internal storage, sure its expandable but more $$$. Sure the games are on cartridges but they still need patches, DLC, etc etc.
- Very expensive peripherals, Nintendo is taking the toy approach here
- Outsourced online functionality, much of it through a smartphone app
- Paid monthly subscription for online play, not exactly a Nintendo strength in the first place
- Adding insult to injury they're offering free NES and SNES games monthly to people who subscribe...but they vanish the next month. Only Nintendo could be this stingy with 20-30 year old games.
- Even when docked Zelda is running at 900p
- 3 hour battery life (in Zelda apparently) is below even the Shield Tablet
- Confirmed launch line up is paltry yet again, Nintendo has learned nothing from its past 4 console launches apparently


Lol, even Microsoft looks at that and goes "Damn, dafuq are you guys thinking??"

$300 seems pricey to me. Does that include a game?

Well keep in mind Rocket League was a free game on PSN last year I think, might have been a year before.

That's a good point, I'd forgotten about that. Even so, this is still just printing them money. Which is good, I'm glad to see good devs with great community support do well.

Gold on January 12th, released on February 28th? Holy crap, that has to be the longest "Gold to Shelf" time frame ever...

In any case, I'm pretty excited to play it. If I remembered to switch over my email address to my new one on their website, which I... may not have done...

2. Decades in prison for VW execs Jan 12, 2017, 21:14 Creston
 
Lol. Whatever. Ignoring the fact that most of them aren't even in the US, since when do executives go to jail for their bullshit? VW will pay the fine (admittedly massively huge), they won't pay a dime, and that'll be the end of it.

Next time some cocksucker exec sees a way to cheat and thereby boost his stock bonus by $10K, he'll do so, because there's never any deterrent against doing so.

News Comments > Windows 10 Update Breaks Multi-Monitor Support

Quboid wrote on Jan 12, 2017, 00:02:
Does it affect 3D games on multi-monitor systems, or does it affect 3D games that use more than one monitor? "Multi-monitor support in some games" implies that this is only an issue when a 3D application is using multiple monitors but the article is too busy belabouring the point about forced updates to actually discuss this.

Note, it's not just games. 3D rendering apps. Likely meaning that if I don't cut this fucking 'update' off at the ass tomorrow, all my engineers at work (who use AutoDesk on 2-3-4 monitors) are probably going to be shit out of fucking luck.

According to developer Dead Drop Studios, there should be virtually no connection issues. (There’s no P2P, so players don't directly connect.) Furthermore, Outbreak has a *region selector* to ensure a low ping worldwide.

Uh-huh...

So what happens when you lose your ONE LIFE? Game over 'till next map? Done for the day? Uninstall?

Fuck you, Microsoft, and your fucking NON-EXISTANT testing scheme. When are you going to stop using all these mouth breathers on your "insider build" program, and actually start TESTING some of this shit?

You fucking break monitors, webcams, printers, and your answer is always "Well, don't use that then."

Fuck you and your worthless, shit, mandatory update bullshit.

Ah yes, the usual Blizzard Nerf Hammer has struck again. Let's not adjust something a little bit downwards, let's just make it completely utterly useless, then adjust it back up when the cries of outrage become too overwhelming.

It's really become a concept by now. Many games employ the Blizzard Nerf Hammer method of "balancing."



I guess I don't see anything wrong with making drastic changes on the PTR as long as they listen to feedback, which it seems like they are doing.

I thought they had put the hook nerf on public servers, not just the PTR. My bad.

25K in a week is not a lot if you have the right keywords to show up in search results and suggestions. Even 25K in an hour is perfectly feasible if your stuff goes viral.

However this story has nothing to do with YouTube, it's a pretty huge scam involving thousands of fake web sites and hundreds of thousands of bots designed to milk pay-per-click video ads. The crux of it seems to be that huge ad companies are using automated algorithms to choose where to put their ads, lol... So these guys exploited that lack of human oversight and just engineered their way to being paid millions of dollars for nothing.

Eh, if ad companies want to be lazy, they get what they deserve. No sympathy on my end.

Nerf hammer?

I see one bug fix, three buffs, and only one nerf (and that is to Ana's grenade, which everyone, including pro players, say is particularly broken.)

The nerf happened the previous patch a few days ago. Now they're quickly having to un-nerf it again, because as usual, they just utterly crushed an entire skill.
