I live in South West Florida and we are in the center of the "cone"! Pretty much, whichever model this storm follows I am SOL. So, tomorrow, we are packing up the 2 dogs and whatever clothes and whatnot we can, and hitting the road. We have family in New Jersey so I think we will shoot for there. I'd rather drive more than try to find a hotel/motel room for 2 adults, 1 kid, and 2 80+lbs dogs!

Wish us luck! I'm hoping by leaving a few days early we can avoid any major traffic issues getting out of this god forsaken state!

Ugh, good luck, man.

This could be cool. For all how empty it was, their version of late 40s LA looked fantastic, and could be very cool to just walk around in.

I always kinda liked LA Noire. It was something different rather than just IMACOP PEW PEW PEW BAD GUYS PEW PEW PEW. The technology was incredible for its time. It's a shame nobody ever continued using it.

Btw, the DoJ has no problem shutting down websites left and right for even the vaguest hints of piracy, but a website that blatantly traffics sexual enslavement of children seems to be perfectly fine. Good to see the DoJ is on the case as usual.

I guess parents of trafficking victims should write bigger bribes to congress critters.

What a bunch of morons. The only way to fix sex trafficking is to legalize like it is in Europe. Not the perfect solution, but it beats the hell out of anything these idiots come up with!

Yes. Let's fucking legalize sexual slavery of children. Rolleyes

Kindly point me to ONE country in Europe that legalizes trafficking. Because not even fucking Holland allows it, and Holland will allow every sin known to mankind.

"The bottom line is the interests that are facing off here are economic versus human protections," Vardaman says. "It's protection of children. We can't fathom a world in which we place economics over the protection of our children."

Really? Most CEOs can fathom that world perfectly fine. And once they write a few 20K bribes, suddenly so can most Congress-critters and Senators.

That's pretty low. Corporation are eyeing about 60% job replacements, so that number should be significantly higher.

It makes sense if your title isn't selling well, and you need high volumes of players in order to make your title sell well.

Smart of them to take this step.

cliffyb will take years to figure this out.

marking its first revenue decline in 13 years

So let's cut 8% of the workforce. Because God forbid we'd ride it out and give the CEO a 12% raise instead of a 15% raise. Fuckers.

You pay full price, and then all the good stuff is available for purchase. Welcome to gaming in 2017.

Vote with your wallet. The more people keep buying shit like this, the more publishers jizz all over themselves and keep doing it.

Her apology seems legit to me. It seems far more legit than 99.999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999% of all the non-apologies out there.

Whether she'll learn anything, heh, very doubtful.

I think mine was water-resistant after 12 hours and waterproof after 48, but it was a while ago that I had a deck.

One of my favorite game series of all time, and my most favorite RPG of all time. Congrats, and thanks, CDPR!

Goddamn, that trailer hit me right in the feels too. It's awesome.

Y'all think Win10 is bad about forced reboots? Try Server 2016 which has the same forced reboot policy. "B...b...but you can set active hours!" Yeah, about that, see when you have a PDC and you have users that access your network 24/7/365 from both local and remote locations and you use AD as your authentication schema, that becomes problematic.

LOL, way to go MS. Assclowns.

Though, to be fair, you really should have a BDC or two.

Windows 10 has so many annoying intermittent issues that Win 7 never had.
- put to sleep, and it will hang indefinitely with the hard drive running. Have to reboot.
- wakes up from sleep and the network driver is completely missing. Not deactivated, but gone entirely. Have to reboot.
- sometimes it loses the ability to recognize USB devices. Even if I replug them, it won't see them. Have to reboot.

This was a clean install. My hardware is pretty standard. I don't have a lot of software other than games loaded.

There's some nasty malware that has been downloaded to certain computers from a particular website. It apparently does everything you described and more. I remember reading that the executable file was something like StarCitizen.exe.

Hahaha, awesome.

Btw, jd, most of those bugs you described have been in previous versions of Windows as well. They're not just 10 specific, they're Windows specific. Microsoft simply refuses to fix their shitty code. I've had Windows forget that I have a sound card installed since the days of Windows 98

Dare I click on that phone jack story? It sounds like being contrarian for contrarian's sake.

It's very simple. It saves them $3 per phone, and they can sell you $150 wireless earbuds.

Oh no, wait, I forgot. It's because the Apple design team "had so much courage." Rolleyes Someone tape that fucker's mouth shut.

I bought XCom 2 last year, but didn't install it until a few weeks ago. Played it for about 5 hours then uninstalled it. Didn't like the timed missions, and didn't like the overall countdown to the dark events that weaken you with negatives over time.

If you liked XCOM, I'd recommend you give XCOM2 another try. Worst case scenario, you can install one of the mods that removes or greatly increases the timers. For the most part, the timers are doable, and later missions have no timers. Dark Events do give negative attributes, but usually you can push back the event with successful missions/raids, or minimize it.

In WotC, you can actually choose to start with second wave options that double the Avatar clock and double the mission timers. The mission timers one is probably advisable, though honestly this time around I played no-cheats on that, and never had any issues completing stuff easily within even the smallest time limit (7 turns on some missions), and the Avatar clock now has so many counters it's kind of become pointless. I keep the clock at around 3 pips, just to piss the aliens off.

"Oh, you made some progress on your little project again? Here." *runs covert op that takes off 2 pips.*

Edit: Dev already beat me to it.
