Cool costume, but this bit from the article:

Rousey once spent $1,300 on WoW cards for the chance to get a rare mount, but unfortunately for her, it didn't work out.

How is this NOT gambling, exactly?

I liked Stranger Things 2. Not quite as good as the first season, but still a highly tense and very enjoyable show. Very much looking forward to a third season (please, Netflix?)

It doesn't matter what Equifax does or doesn't do about that, it matters what the FTC will do.

Oh wait, the FTC just takes a bribe and shuts the fuck up, like the rest of our government.

I still come across the occasional user who goes "I just don't know how to use these dangfangled computers hahaha!"

Yeah, it's not funny anymore. It was cute back in the 90s. We're 20 years further down the road now. FUCKING LEARN OR GET OUT OF THE FUCKING WORKFORCE.

It's not like we're asking people to code a goddamned AI or something. Just some rudimentary knowledge on how to interact with Windows, the Internet and Office apps doesn't seem too much to fucking ask for.


Also, about that doctor:

“I had no choice,” she told Judge John Kissinger, who did not issue a ruling. The AP also noted that Konopka will see any patient who can pay her $50 in cash.

“If I close my office, they will be without medical care,” she also told the court. “Some of them need medications. Who will prescribe for them if I don’t have a license? I worry what will happen to them.”

If you see patients without a license, you're going to really quickly wind up in jail. And as for who will prescribe for them if you don't have a license? Other doctors WHO KNOW HOW TO USE A FUCKING COMPUTER.

No shit.

As for the screen burn-in, hilarious how they didn't tell anyone until after the first day sales were in. OMG APPLE IS TEH BESTEST

Hope all the Runic guys (and Motiga) find other jobs soon. I really enjoyed Torchlight, though I barely ever played the 2nd one.

Everything about Call of Duty is a disrespectful cash grab, but gamers apparently LOVE being Bobby Kotick's bitch year after year after year after year.

Another bullshit headline from gamasutra. Games revenue hasn't slowed to a crawl at Microsoft, games revenue GROWTH has slowed to a crawl. And really, who ever sees that coming on the eve of them releasing a new SKU?

Wtf has happened to gamasutra? They used to write really good shit, and now it seems like it's the garbage reject bin from IGN.

VR is not dead as evidenced by the multitude of awesome VR titles available today...oh wait!

More great VR titles than I have time for, oh wait. Could put 1000's of hours just into the sims.

I would fucking LOVE a VR version of Cities: Skylines.

First they burn, now they freeze. Dammit, Samsung, we want something that's in the middle between those two extremes.

Still no fucking price drops on the 1070 or 1080. Damn you, Nvidia! Shakefist

1070s are more expensive than this time last year. I paid ~$385 for mine, which was a good deal, but it wasn't unheard of. Now for the same card you're looking at ~$425. It's my understanding the crypto-currency miners are to blame. So I would be surprised to see a price drop, or resellers offering compelling sales or rebates.

Yup. Damn miners. I'm just looking at a 1080 instead, at least it still sells for MSRP, rather than all this inflated bs we're seeing.

So, UBI says that the DRM is not causing any issues with high CPU usage. I think they are full of shit. There's no way you double down on the DRM with Denuvo and the VMProtect they implemented over top of that DRM and not have some kind of CPU usage hits too.

The weird thing is, I seem to have absolutely no issues with my CPU getting overloaded. Wouldn't it just CRUSH my ass-old 2500K? I mean, my CPU seems pretty busy during the game, but it runs like smooth silk too.

But yeah, them saying "It's not the DRM!" isn't going to be believed by anyone.

The first panda scenario is much more entertaining. Dine and dash murderer panda.
