Happy Pride everybody!

Things are in full gear here in Minneapolis. Manhug


Parade is still going outside my apt right now. It started at noon, and there's currently a float blaring Dancing Queen.

It's kind of awesome having a front row to this. Man, you see a lot of humanity (and a lot of that humanity.)

Not a CoD fan but CoD4:MW by the (original) Infinity Ward is what really propelled the series. Its engine would go on to be used (and abused) by the inept treyarch to death. After the original IW dev's left (screwed by Activision) the series went down hill. I'm not a huge FPS fan, but for me this is the best there is for FPS hands down. The single player campaign was still the most memorable of all (fps) time. I'm not a hater, so i'm going to check this out, as for any other CoD, doesnt meet the standard of the past devs.

The multiplayer was probably the best of the series too. In my book it was as good as or even better than CounterStrike, and I loved counterstrike back in the 1.5, 1.6 days.

CoD:MW to this day remains the best of the lot.

I think 2 was better than 1, 3 was better than 2, and Ghosts was awful for MP (but much better for SP.)

Nope. Employees like things like this. Happy employees make for better employees.

The NYC Pride Parade is this weekend. Dozens of companies will have floats in it. Why? Because it makes the employees satisfied that they work for a company that gives a shit.

<edit> Democrat hell-hole Chicago stat update:

Again, it isn't like they can't take the Chicago subway and legally buy outside Chicago, so using them as a data point is moronic.

News Comments > Steam Summer Sale Launches
26. Re: Steam Summer Sale Launches Jun 22, 2017, 16:56 Beamer
 
Every game I'd want is still too expensive. XCOM2 and Dishonored2 for $20. Superhot for $15. Far Cry Primal for a whopping $25 (it's cheaper to buy the disc on Amazon, and has been for over 6 months.) Deus Ex Mankind Divided for $15 I may do, but overall I'd pick up any or all of those for $10.

I think my biggest issue with these sales is I have literally hundreds of dollars of games purchased at them that I know I'll never buy, so I only want to impulse buy $10 or less. Anything more to sit for 6 months to 6 years in my Library seems wasteful - by the time I get around to playing them they'll be available at these prices or cheaper.

I still think it has to be something different from what we're thinking.

But I don't have much time in Destiny. I played the beta, and thought the actual combat mechanics were fantastic - firing and fighting felt perfect. But the game around it felt really kind of sad, so I didn't bother doing more than maybe 5 hours in the beta. I also wasn't in the mood for competitive multiplayer, as I didn't have time to get owned by 13 year olds probably from Korea.

Now, however? I took the summer off, and man, CS-Go is actually a ton of fun. Except when school is out...

I guess those wanting to play this... you guys can hope he was talking about force feedback , instead of on-screen recoil effects ??


I think it's more the screen moving, rather than just where you target moving.

As others mentioned, this is written to non-gamers. So giving them a "your beliefs aren't entirely wrong, but here's what you need to know" is an effective way to convince them. Saying "you're entirely wrong and your experiences were wrong" will just turn them against you immediately.

So, if you're a gamer that's played a competitive FPS and gotten your ass handed to you by a 13 year old, telling them that yes, that's common, but here are other games you should consider, is a whole lot better than "YOU'RE WRONG, PCMR!"

Heh... "Declining PC market", alongside contradictory reports that indicate that PC sales are steadily increasing, and have been for months. My own company is in the process of replacing over 50 desktops with new ones in the next 12 months and a fleet of new laptops are on order as well. We tried tablets (iPads) and none of our sales personnel wanted them because they're completely inadequate for the job. Only morons with money invested in mobile companies and technologies are singing the "End Of The PC" song, and it's getting old.

50 PCs is nothing, enterprise tends to replace PCs slowly, and you're wrong and PC sales in Q1 were actually the lowest in a decade. A decade.

Around here, people keep beating the "PC sales are fine!" drum, despite every tiny bit of evidence proving otherwise. Per Gartner, PC sales haven't risen since April 2014, and that was only a 0.1% increase. Per IDC, PC sales were up in Q1, but up only 0.6% and are, overall, down 30% since 2011.

People don't upgrade frequently anymore. There's no reason to. As such, sales have drastically slowed.

Animal House is a culturally significant timeless comedy.

Listen I enjoyed Animal House when I first saw it as much as anyone and I agree it is a cultural icon of film. However, I don't think I could call it "timeless". Have you seen it within, oh I don't know, the last 20 years? It isn't the worst example of it, but overall it hasn't aged well.

Indeed. Huge cultural significance, but no longer watchable. I didn't see it until around 2003 or so, whenever the Double Secret Probation DVD came out.

It was not a good experience. By that point, so many movies had shamelessly ripped it off. Movies, and TV shows. I feel like damn near every animated show has their own spoof, with Futurama probably doing it best, but so many movies took its formulas and, well, shamelessly ripped it off. But, by standing on its shoulders, they also advanced everything.

By the time I watched it, it was just tame and predictable. No fault of its own, it's because of all the other media that did what it did, but it isn't hard to do it better when you're already starting with the blueprint. Which may make Animal House important, but it also makes it a very boring, predictable, tame movie to see out of the original context.

It's getting good buzz at E3, and is the exact kind of old school PC shooter so many here endlessly whine about wanting, but since people here still hate Cliff for saying mean things back in the early-mid 2000s, they'll ignore it.

No one in the world holds a grudge like a PC-centric gamer.

I'm a huge fan of all the UTs, so I wasn't speaking for myself, just the fact that this got no response on Blues at all.
No, I totally got that.

some of the stuff they are talking about in terms of changes already happened with FC: Primal, but nobody played it so they dont know any better..

I think most of bluesnews skipped Far Cry Primal, I know I did. Far Cry 5 looks pretty good regardless, so it's going on the sale list. I'm thinking under $20 maybe, under $10 for sure.

FC5 is a day one buy for me.

Primal would be under $10, for sure, but anytime I look it's $30. Haven't looked since like January, but still...

Yifes wrote on Jun 12, 2017, 22:13:
The first game had a lot of flaws but was still quite enjoyable. Looking forward to this.

I didn't get far before the flaws did me in. Part of it was just not liking the combat. Things were clunky, and it was a game where a minor error due to controls could ruin a nice run, what with permadeath and all. Horror survival games seem to make clunky controls a feature, and I'm never for it.

Beyond that, permadeath isn't fun for me if a game takes more than a handful of hours. If something is made to be replayed, I'd like to be able to do a full run in 4-6 hours tops.

Lastly, the alarm bug destroyed it for me. I'm sure it's patched, but at the time alarms going off constantly were annoying - the completionist in me wanted to respond to them all, and it was hard to tell which to avoid. Bug, probably patched.

In all I put in maybe 6 hours on the 360? I am complaining, largely because it isn't the genre for me (make it more about action than survival and I'd have adored it), but the 6 hours I put in were actually a lot for the genre. And the first few hours were played with a huge "wow, I can't believe this!" grin on my face.

We're way off topic, but I always wonder if people that mock how Chicago is a gun-free zone with high gun crimes understand there are no border controls in and out of Chicago, and that the subway system will take you to places you can buy guns.


Probably not, because that knowledge makes it harder for them to feel self-righteous.
