I find that DVD quality is about on par with HD downloads from iTunes or HD streaming off NetFlix. Amazon Prime streaming is noticeably worse than all of those; it's my last resort for watching anything. Blu Ray is handily superior to anything I can [legally] download or stream online, but it is also by far the biggest hassle so I only have special favorites on Blu Ray.

Are you watching on a screen under 40"?

On a large screen, the resolution difference is monstrous.

It's a shame that Blu Ray was ruined so badly. I had a high end HTPC/projector setup back in the days of DVD (1300+ titles) but never could justify the move to Blu Ray because of all the crap they overloaded it with. Now I just use my PS4 to play the occasional Blu Ray but accept the inferior quality of DVD and HD streaming for most stuff. Blu Ray just isn't worth the hassle.

Physical media, to me, isn't worth the hassle. It's more time consuming and typically costlier. I need to go somewhere to buy it or rent it, and then (worse) I need to store it.

The downside to streaming is that the image quality is much worse - the detail I see in the darkness on a BluRay is huge, yet cable makes Game of Thrones a bunch of talking heads in black backgrounds.

I'll still take it, though. I had ~300 DVDs, many of which I just threw out when I moved (the rest I just threw out the cases.) I have maybe 10 BluRay discs. Most unopened (as were most of the DVDs, probably 75%.) No player hooked up anymore. And, while ownership is nice, I felt that way about DVDs, and when I go back and watch them the quality is so terrible that I just end up paying the $3 or whatever to rent on Amazon.

Because you won't feel compelled to buy a new phone...with the promise that with brand X and model Y, you'll get a better support.

I was lucky enough to get a first-gen Moto G back in the day.

And yet, now, most carriers (and, in some case, I believe manufacturers) are on a 1 year free upgrade policy. If I turn in my S7 Edge at the end of 1 year, and it isn't broken, Verizon will give me a brand new S8 Edge, or whatever the new flagship is.

I think maybe I have to pay taxes, but... free upgrades. I'm ok with that. I no longer have a nice collection of old phones, but... why do I have that? And I already had to turn in one for a free upgrade once prior.

The first article that this article is a response to. He wanted to give devs the power to remove reviews on their products or to have Valve do it for them. He claimed to want to do this because the negative reviews are "trolls" but anyone with half a brain can see how this power can and will be immediately abused. It's as offensive to me as someone demanding that the government should be allowed to review and remove articles they do not like in the local paper.

Fortunately for all of us, Valve is too lazy to do anything.

I meant ban a product. If you're going to say the article is trying to ban bad user reviews, then GamerGate is an entire movement designed around trying to ban critical reviews they do not agree with.

The important thing is no one is trying to ban actual products, despite all the accusations of Jack Thompson (a man who did try to ban actual products.)

News Comments > DOOM @ 200 FPS Under Vulkan
36. Re: Doom, verticality May 9, 2016, 15:33 Beamer
 
I really never understood the M+b vs controller debate.

Ultimately, I just don't care. A fun game is fun. I play Rocket League using M+K, which is idiotic - I have a receiver for the Xbox 360 controller sitting in the Amazon shipping envelope in a drawer nearby; it'd take me 5 minutes to set it up. But I don't. M+K is fine for me. I've played plenty of other racing games with it, too, and done just fine in them, even though you're sometimes wiggling like crazy to get the right line.

And I play a ton of FPS games on consoles. Controllers work great there. The games are designed for it, and designed well for it, and every single other player is using a controller so no one is significantly better than you due to what you're using. If anything, it's a more even playing field because you don't have some guy with a super expensive setup destroying you.

I dunno, for me, both input methods are fine. Both have their purposes, but I find I can adapt to any input method fairly quickly. Using the wrong one in multiplayer is a disadvantage if others use the right one, but the less I game the less interested I am in multiplayer, so...

Sounds exactly like the DOOM I remember

I fail to see an issue with this, though. I mean, it's kind of fun. In Quake 3 we could customize our railgun colors, right? And that was kind of fun - if you knew one guy was really good with the railgun and used yellow, and saw someone near you get zapped by a yellow beam, you knew it was probably a good time to find cover.

Or, with Rocket League, everyone changes everything.

Fun times.

If this is factual, and supported by her own words, I'm sure you can throw in some easy citations.

By the looks of how evangelist was spelled I would not hold your breath on those non-existent citations.

The Half Elf is actually a good poster here, it's just sad that he's saying things like this, but I won't insult his intelligence. That said, he claimed "factual," yet no facts to back it. Those facts, I'm certain, do not exist, and most supporting them just believe some terrible MSFT Paint red-arrowed graphic with quotes taken out of context or wholly fabricated.

I mean, look at MA. He's still complaining about low review scores without linking to a single review that has low review scores. Even if he finds one (and one isn't indicative of a larger problem), he can't say why one guy's opinions is incorrect and therefore terrible. If you go to Rotten Tomatoes, movie critics are all over the place, and no one is doing a 2 year temper tantrum over it. And no one is feigning complete illiteracy to argue that anyone is attacking all moviegoers.

I have never felt that criticism of badly behaved gamers applied to me and I still find it rather bizarre how personally some people take this. I didn't even realise at first that people were taking "gamers are dead" to refer to all gamers; I thought and still think that this was just lousy writing, and a persecution complex (or guilt) leading to offense being taken.

Those accusing people of being desperate to be offended are, themselves, at least as desperate to be offended. You need a lobotomy to think this describes "all" gamers, yet people do.

I mean, you're right, the Leigh Alexander piece was lousy writing, but you're also right, it's still impossible to read and not realize a woman that calls herself a gamer and has game tattoos couldn't possibly be vilifying "all" gamers, a group she is a part of.

I don't? archive.today/kwlHD vs archive.today/NhE84 I can keep going. How about Leigh Alexanders on GTAIV vs GTAV? Should I keep going or is that enough?

First off, thank you for being too lazy to link those. But I see why you didn't.
That first review? An 8/10. This is the "low review scores" you're terrified of, an 8 out of 10? The second one is a 7.5 out of 10. And it's the one I'd already mentioned.

You're so bad at this you're giving people evidence already discounted. If an 8 out of 10 is a huge ethical sin for you, what do you make of Armond White?

I can't even find a Leigh Alexander GTA review, and neither could you, since you offer no links. There's this mock review, which does not count, and there are some opinion articles (which a review technically is, but these are not reviews), but I see no review.


Do you even know what you're angry about?

I typically take someone at their word until it becomes clear they're lying. I haven't seen anything from Mark to suggest he's lying. So until that happens I'm going to take him at his word.

That being said check this out...

vomiting_cat: Look at Oldschool Runescape's success. Look at Nostalrius and now Kronos/Lordaeron. Sometimes feels like, you're wrong?
Mark: Blizzard was pretty sure WoW should be cancelled to, until I convinced them to try.
https://twitter.com/Grummz/status/723670297405054978

Mark: They all seem to forget I saved WoW from cancellation and got it shipped in the first place.
https://twitter.com/Grummz/status/723552778308608000
Khayotix: tell us the story Mark! What happened that the game needed saving? History lesson time!
Mark: The game was in shambles, the lead left to start Arena. net. Blizzard said, no way to continue
https://twitter.com/Grummz/status/723553532465418240
Mark: I said I would join the team, find a new lead prog and help turn the game around. They let me try.
https://twitter.com/Grummz/status/723553713042821124

Obviously Mark still has amiable relationship with Mike or else Mike wouldn't have decided to meet with Mark to hear the case for Legacy servers.

Ok, so maybe it was Executive Producer. That's nothing creative. Kern often claims to be creative, but executive producers are project managers.

And yes, you're still quoting him. Literally no one backs him up on these claims. No one. Not a single person. And, looking at his history post-WoW, it's hard to believe those claims.

These are just things you disagree with. It's politics when you don't like it. It's clickbait when you don't agree with it because you're so special, nobody could *actually* disagree with you. None of this is making an argument, it's just an excuse not to.

Gotcha. So when a reviewer give a game a low score because it disagrees with their identity politics because there's sexy women or has water or doesn't include xyz group or includes adult themes it's okay. Even though the game is a technical and artistic masterpiece and people agree that it's a really good game, and people should buy it. And that the game has received dozens if not hundreds of awards for being a really good game. But calling it for what it is, is bad.

Reviewers write what they think about the game. They do not parrot what everyone else says if that's not what they think. Do you really think any reviewer should give a high score to a game they didn't like just because everyone did? It's politics to you because you don't care, if it affects their experience then it should affect their score.

I don't care about game music, I wish reviewers would keep their audio-politics out of their ratings. Now metacritic isn't tailored specifically to me!

And, weirdly, it's always ok when people like Mashiki write bad reviews on Steam due to disliking the identity politics.

The argument is "but I'm not a journalist!" And yet you demand others hold up to standards you refuse to. Or, it's "but I don't influence Metacritic!" Well, actually, user reviews do, but any Metacritic issues are Metacritic's, not reviewers.

I mean, this group has extended now, fighting Ghostbusters, of all things. They claim they hate the new Ghostbusters because the trailer was bad (factual), and that it is ruining something they love. Yet, weirdly, it isn't changing Ghostbusters 1 at all, and looks better than Ghostbusters II. Weirdly, no one went on massive downvote campaigns against Robocop, which looked worse and was also based on a beloved movie, or Total Recall, which looked worse and was also based on a beloved movie.

The best part is that you have no examples of this. You'll endlessly rage against Polygon for a Bayonetta review that got a 7.5, which isn't a low score. Or you'll complain about a sidebar mentioning women in a review about Mad Max that thoroughly destroys how boring it find the combat, and swear up and down the two sentence sidebar, not even in the full review, is why the score was low.

Oh really?

https://www.nhlbi.nih.gov/health/health-topics/topics/heartattack/causes
A heart attack happens if the flow of oxygen-rich blood to a section of heart muscle suddenly becomes blocked and the heart can't get oxygen. Most heart attacks occur as a result of coronary heart disease (CHD). CHD is a condition in which a waxy substance called plaque builds up inside of the coronary arteries.


Do you ever wonder why Atkins (the guy that invented the no carbs, lots of meat and fat diet) had a history of cardiovascular disease, had a heart attack and died as a result of hitting his dead during the heart attack. This happens to everyone on this type of diet, eventually.

Cardiovascular disease is completely optional. Read: Preventing Heart Disease by Dr. Cadwell Esselstyn.

You went from "eggs are like smoking 4 cigarettes" to "CHD is caused by plaque" and "lots of meat and fat are bad for you."

Increasingly, science is proving that "eggs cause heart attacks" is incorrect and bad science. Nothing you've said contradicts this, even if absolutely, positively correct.


I mentioned eggs, meat, and fat because they are all sources of cholesterol. Smoking also causes atherosclerosis, so eggs and cigarettes can be roughly compared in terms of how much they coat the arteries.

Why do you think it is illegal for the US egg board to advertise eggs using the words "healthy" and "nutritious"

Like I said, read the books, because no matter what I seem to say someone will pick it apart, I'd rather you guys get the information first hand, where it's explained in more than two sentences by a professional. I'm mearly trying to generate interest in actual science that hasn't been influenced by the sponsor.

Except the Egg Board calls eggs these things non-stop on their site.

Sorry, your science is bunk. The rest of the books may be good, but your campaign against eggs here is just ill-advised. It's based off of 1980s understanding of nutrition, back in the days when we had a food pyramid and feared fat.

Your Dr. Greger cites a 2001 study that eggs are bad. [Here's a 2006 study contradicting it.](http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16340654)

Dr. Greger likes to point out all the ad money paying for pro-egg studies. But Dr. Greger is very anti anything from animals. Hmm, let's look at who pays his salary... The Humane Society. Interesting. Seems like some of the arguments he makes could apply to him, no?


Usually fad diets, and your advocacy here comes across as fad-ish as most other diets, work not because the nutrition is perfect but because people are finally paying attention to what they're eating and doing something to keep most of the processed garbage out, as well as going more balanced and moderating most ingredients. To say eating one egg is the equivalent of smoking 4 cigarettes is... really, really strange. Eating the occasional steak won't kill you. Eating an egg breakfast when out for brunch on Sunday won't shorten your lifespan. Avoiding this stuff like the plague is insanity - life is too short, anyway. Lentils are great, and are the primary source of protein in many of my meals, but swapping every time you'd eat eggs for lentils 100% of the time isn't going to make you live to 100.

I do not want to troll (really), but that VR hype died off extremely quickly, right?

I was thinking along the same lines. Its a new market with a lot of people feeling it's just a fad that won't get any traction. They really needed to hit it out of the park at launch and they completely fucked it up. And it really seems like a business 101 problem; they should have known early on how long it would take to manufacture units and the likely demand. Instead they just kept taking pre-orders and they can't fulfill in a timely manner. Not a good way to induce confidence in new customers.

On one hand, your early adopters are your best advocates and you need to keep them happy.
On the other hand, your retailers are your most important customer in many ways. Piss them off and your doomed. Fail to meet a promise to them and you're doomed. Don't have the product for their buyers, who should be greater in number than preorderers, and you're doomed (with exceptions of hugely in demand products whose scarcity makes them even more in demand.)
Back to the first hand, this product seems like a weird mix where nearly all interested in spending the amount of money for this luxury are the same who early adopt and preorder, so...

It is a business problem, but not a 101 problem. You've got a company that's never done manufacturing making a product that's really never been mass produced.

So then you're against my Call of Duty: Advanced WWI idea, where you're a futuristic supersoldier going back in time and defeating the Germans using blasters and port-a-nukes against people with semi-auto Mausers.

The only level I can't decide on is the flight level. Is it more fun to have fire-and-forget and blast apart Fokkers from 50 miles out without ever seeing them (or them seeing you), or more fun to just fly Mach 10 through them, disintegrating them upon contact? The latter is probably much harder.
