Be sure to grab the nvidia drivers... seemed to make a huge difference for me (unlike the Benchmark, without drivers on my 1070 I would get 12 fps less than I do now, strange. Still not getting to 60 at 1440p on MAX though

I hope before I die I'll ever understand wtf is going on with something like that? Obviously this was coded with drivers under this new latest driver that came out today. So what were they developing on all these years and they weren't seeing performance issue developing it and correcting as they go? Perhaps not and maybe it is just some system configs that trigger poor performance and they didn't see it and Nvidia does and tweaks some settings to clear those up... Is that it?

4 genocides. 100 years.

ALL of them preceded by gun confiscation.

Gun confiscation and banning certain types of guns !=. We've already have some guns banned... no genocide.

Trump really feeling his oats today, back to threatening NK and the world with nuclear war again. Good ole times. I remember how nuke war was such a hot topic in the campaign.

Most gun crime are crimes of passion. They have fuck all to do with mental illness. Someone gets angry and zigs when they should have zagged. Next thing you know someone is shot. So stop trying to frame this bullshit like the only people shooting people are severely mentally ill. It's a weapon plain and simple. And it's made for one purpose and one purpose alone and it makes killing just way too easy.

Domestic Violence is still the #1 answer and a lot of it is completely random in nature causing shock.

Private ownership of ASSAULT rifles it only of interest to those planning an... assault? Or what do they need an assault rifle for?

hunting, personal protection, sport.

the AR in AR-15 doesn't stand for Assault Rifle, who knew.

The AR in “AR-15” rifle stands for ArmaLite rifle, after the company that developed it in the 1950s. “AR” does NOT stand for “assault rifle” or “automatic rifle.” AR-15-style rifles are NOT “assault weapons” or “assault rifles.” An assault rifle is fully automatic — a machine gun.

Right this comes up, the technical definition, even though we know it is very easy to pull a trigger and spray led with a semi-auto, modify it to full or add additional HW for same results. I'm starting to lean on the "looks", these are M1 Carbine's in many ways, no? Well which looks cooler to young men? The old WW2 wood look or the gun that does in fact look like something from their favorite video game? This is going down the line of cigarettes and advertising to young people, they at one point were able to make it look cool The gov't stepped in to make it not, functional but not cool, smoking is down, but not eliminated. Perhaps that is one of the things we need to do with these guns. Responsible gun ownership should be focused on functionality and not looks, these are extremely dangerous devices. Again not a silver bullet single answer, but perhaps something to consider.

I will say the gun insurance idea is interesting.

I really look at the victims words here and double especially with those that were very pro gun, have this happen to them and they change their thoughts on the subject. This is what we should be analyzing, we are defensive but never felt the force and the pain of this problem directly. I bet if some Senators were hit directly with this, they would have a change of heart. Are you able to POV this and see this ahead of time? Or do you have to have the problem repeat itself over and over and then have it hit you directly? I like to think I'm flexible, insightful, not too prideful and able to learn.

A bad situation with a gun is worse than a bad situation without a gun. A bad situation with two guns is, more often than not, even worse than one with a single gun.

The conundrum. That said, if the world was struggling with this, then I think it could be safe to say it is what it is. Perhaps we are really still struggling with racism, bullyism (yeah I said it) and the like in Murica, where most other countries aren't as diverse and more importantly past that.

Why isn't the whole world having a problem with guns then?

I'm starting to think the NRA is a GOP money funneling program. People pay the NRA, NRA pays the GOP, racket and that is why it is protected and sacred. It is like the problem could be anything but the gun, even if the gun is a high powered, fast triggered human killer, which we all need like a hole in the head.

FBI's new slogan. If you see something, say something so we can do nothing.

The other slogan could have been... "See something, say something and we'll detain people without cause or due process, trust us."

Everyone is so focused on pushing their own political agenda that twisting facts to suit their view has become second nature.

I figure this will drag out so long the answer is Nov 2018 and Nov 2020 and that way there isn't some type of hate based conspiracy of ousting outside of voting, which you know there will be.

Also, Prey (2017) feels a lot like a modern System Shock 2 to me. I LOVE it and am surprised that it was not a success. Like many other good games (e.g. Thief 1/2, Dishonored 1/2) it just did not make big money. It seems, most gamers love their loot crate games too much.

It is pretty funny, no? I think multiplayer is where the main masses are at these days, sure exceptions. This game though once most play it, well after first release, agree it's pretty darn good.

As for crowd funding, I think most get it... if you are putting money into a first timer, it is risky, don't spend what you can't afford to lose. I didn't put money here, but am absolutely behind this getting out some day. I've really leasoned my buy in to crowdfunding or EA and the main reason isn't about what they represent, it is that I have more games already than I need, genre's are covered plenty, I can wait now for release. I'd say a Wizardy 8 style attempt could still get me. But there aren't too many pitches out there these days that can.

Listen if they are going to die by "Guns don't kill people" then how can you say the bullet that came from a real gun was sent by a video game. If the gun ain't guilty, no logical way you can just to the video game.

The Wishlist I hated for 30 seconds but it blows the old away. Why the filters.

Set at Sort By Review Score, Show Games Filer 50% or 75% or greater and boom. Now I'm seeing the best deals ranked by best ratings. You couldn't do that before, this is exactly what I wanted to see.

I can also Sort by price, which is all I had before if I want to look that way. But the above filter is TITS! Really happy with that.


Hmmm... Can I sort their whole catalog that way? 75% by rating?

It's been a problem since we went online and there are infinite holes, that has to be the conclusion, we've been patching ever since and no end in sight.

I remember when I got my first 3D graphics card - it was a 3DFX Voodoo Rush. It was the first card that was both 2D and 3D in one, instead of needing separate cards with a pass-through cable.

It was 3DFX's first card, the Rendition cards were there well before and competitive. Yep the Nascar games were awesome, had a 4 unit setup where friends would do an all-nighter.

Loot boxes the bane of modern America. With all the loot box emergencies we’ve at schools so far this year its good to know our government is doing all it can to keep us safe from this digital menace.

The kid was clearly mentally deranged. The firearms are NOT THE ISSUE.

/Trumpspeak

2 Trucks of Prayers were sent to South Florida.

If you don't like Lootboxes and want the gov't to control/ban them. Remember you are asking gov't to step in. So don't be one of those anti-govt type if you want them to handle the loot box problem. Because no gov't would mean even more lootboxes and more devious means.

That's a nice grid to lay it all out.

540P though? That's a number born from, who the hell knows.


Laptops especially on the low to med end of the spectrum still use resolutions like 1366 vs 768. That resolution might be closer to 720p than 540p but we are forgetting about the sad state the integrated graphics are in. Factor in Interlacing also who knows.

Take a look at the benchmarks for the iGPU they recommend for 540p.

https://www.notebookcheck.net/Intel-Iris-Graphics-540.149939.0.html

Right 768 and 720, we get those. That said, there was some good posts thereafter explaining why this could be. Still odd, can't say I've seen a 540P performance option/baseline before.
