It sounds like a really pathetic cry for attention on their part. I guess they don't understand their name doesn't mean anything close to what it used to.


Yeah it does seem a little "HEY LOOK AT ME LOOK AT ME!" Especially the whole sad twittering about it later.

Other networks in Kinja are separate aren't they? I don't think Kotaku will be affected. I don't care about this Hogan story, but it is mildly entertaining that Gawker might go bye-bye.

Nope, they're all part of Gawker. Which sucks, because Jalopnik, OppositeLock and Foxtrot Alpha are awesome websites, and they're likely going to die because of this. (edit, if they don't get sold like Beamer says.)

SSD's are great but they aren't necessities. I have two systems with and 2 without, games play fine on them all. Loads are faster on the SSD, surprise.

It's not just "faster", though. It's like, MASSIVELY faster. I reinstalled Dragon Age Inquisition the other day, and wasn't paying attention, so accidentally installed it on my games hard drive rather than my SSD (I know, duh...) The first time I started it up, it took like 70 something seconds to reach the menu screen. And I'm thinking to myself "It never took that long, did it?"

Reinstalled on a 500MB/s SSD, and it takes like 10 seconds.

Maybe you have many, many hours of time to while away waiting for stuff to load, but I'll just go sit in the fast lane.

My next PC (probably end of summer) is definitely going the M.2 4x PCI 3.0 lane route.

In other words: "We had already hacked this phone, but were desperately trying to get precedent so we could just force every company to do what we want/need them to do, and do away with all encryption entirely. But now that the public is starting to understand our If You Side With Apple You Side With The Terrorists bullshit is literally just that, bullshit, we may as well give up."

So,

1) A company that scans your email and targets ads based off of stuff in your emails as well as sells your email contents to third party advertisers, and

2) A company that completely rolled over and sucked the NSA's dick so hard that even the NSA went "Shit, guys, take it easy!", and

3) The douchenozzles known as Yahoo, which I'm not even going to bother with,

are making a new email encryption protocol! You should TOTALLY USE THIS PROTOCOL! YOU CAN TRUST THEM! :WINK WINK WINK:

Edit: LinkedIn and Comcast are involved too. That just makes it even better! It's the like the top five bestest companies for Caring About Their Customers And Making Sure They Don't Spy On Your Shit are getting together!

Somewhere, some dipshit director at the NSA just jizzed all over his cheap Costco suit and is now screaming "APPROVE THIS!" at the top of his lungs.

What? Why the fuck would you do that??? 10% is a fucking joke, as is the entire architecture of your console, Microsoft.

he walked around GDC with a shirt teasing BioWare's new IP and no one noticed

Well, maybe because

A) the last time you guys introduced a new IP, you wound up canceling it about eight months later
and
B) the last time you had a new IP before that was like 12 years ago.

Not really the kind of thing people are looking for from Bioware anymore, ya know?

I am aware that ad issues are driving some into the arms of ad blockers, and when malware enters the picture that is a sensible way to protect yourself. We never have worked out a subscription system here, so one thing that some have proposed that may be worthy of consideration would be to start a Patreon account to allow readers who are using adblockers a way to support the site if they want to.

How much are you getting off the Amazon links, Blue? Is it any kind of decent scratch, or did my $500 PS4 plus games purchase get you like 5 cents? (edit, sorry, nin already asked that.)

I will keep buying all my Amazon stuff through your link, but if you want to go the Patreon route, that's certainly understandable.

Fuck me, not this "The healing power of poop / piss" bullshit again.

A friend of mine got told by her doctor a year ago to "start drinking a cup of your own urine each day."

IT'S EXCREMENT.

Gaming bean counter NewZoo forecasts the market at $91.5 billion last year alone

Followed one paragraph later by

But it’s publishers who’re haemorrhaging revenue because gamers who ad-block are killing the thing they love.

Cry me a fucking river and then die in a fire, clickbait piece of shit.

Is it free? No? Cause I'm still waiting for the rest of my $60 adventure, and I got something that felt about $0.99 worth. Nice world. Where was the game again?


That's strange, I felt exactly the opposite. Nice game, where's the cool game world to play it in? (Rather than this massively empty ball of copy pasta'd grass, rocks and identical towns.)

22. Malware Mar 16, 2016, 18:19 Creston
 
Hey Blue,

I'm getting hit with a massive Google notification about malware coming from www.imressionstracker.com which I guess is something that's popping up from an ad.

It hits basically within seconds of accessing the main page, and it goes away if I turn on Adblock...

I don't want to have you an adblock, so can you please check into it?

Thanks

(Edit: RedEye and Beamer both reported this already. Definitely seems like a bad, bad ad! )

I bought mine because my BluRay player had died and I needed a new one, and it was a case of $100 for a BR player, or $175 for an Xbone. That was a fairly easy decision to make. I've enjoyed playing Forza Horizon 2 and Sunset Overdrive on it, but other than that there's really nothing I want to play on it.
