Irrelevant. Some of us have principles, and are entirely justified in hating on ABP for their BS.

Blah blah blah, we don't live in a communistic country. If it ain't free I'm bitching, thems my principals. I like the post a couple back, a good portion of users were coming to grips stating, if the adds were intrusive and tracking etc, then ok. But you give them that, they still really don't want any ad's. But shit costs. You, me, the next guy, we don't work for free.

Unless you somehow find a way to violate the laws of physics, thermal dissipation and power consumption make that scenario from utterly impossible to highly unlikely. The only way I see this happening is if you stream with the same input lag as a PC from a server and that's only if ISPs play nice and remove data caps, I wouldn't hold my breath for that.

Someone is doubting technology. Carlin was right again.

What Snowden and Manning learned is that they're both incredibly naive. They believed in the fantasy ideal of truth, justice, and the American way. What they got for that was real America coming down on them like a ton of bricks. Real America, controlled by the elites. Who don't like to be questioned or embarrassed the way these guys embarrassed them. No, there's no forgiveness for serfs who do this. It's different for the elites, Watergate, Iran-Contra, etc. only the elites get pardons.

It's true and the only solid reason I can find myself to stand during the Anthem is the volunteer troops that risked and lost their lives. Because too much of the rest of it is bullshit of the highest order. What the country was founded on simply isn't there anymore. We've become England West. The only thing we don't have is a King/Dictator. But it seems Trump if he gets in may fight for that power.

Liking Ember so far. It's CRPG-lite for sure. Sort of Ultima meets Diablo, but well worth it for $8US. So if you're looking for something along that lines there ya go.

Looking like a steal at $8. Well written and not over-written, pleasure to read pretty much everything. Combat speed and how it plays out is very well done.

iPhones, or to be more precise, Apple products are for people who want their shit to just work. You want to tinker with it, have some control over it? Look elsewhere. Truth of the matter is that if you are the least bit tech savy, and have the inclination to tinker with your hardware and software, you can buy a better product for half the price. Gone are the days when Apple was the only game in town if you wanted a decent smartphone or a good workstation computer.

Yep. Best parts of the iphone for me, holds a good charge and charges fast.

Slow it? No. You can hit space to pause, and queue up attacks with your team members.

That slows it!! Thanks.

Ah. Thought you meant slow as in Pillars reduced combat speed.

Actually I did, but even a straight up pause works, otherwise it becomes very ARPG'ish for me and would have to judge it against those.

Yeah I'm probably gonna pull the trigger.

The combat is real-time is there anything though to slow it down though, not turn based? Or are the other players able to be scripted?

From an article:

You canít actually buy an eight-core Jaguar part for your PC. The closest you can get is the AMD Athlon 5350, a quad-core Kabini chip running four Jaguar cores at its heart. And all four run at 2.05GHz out of the box, just a shade behind the PS4 Pro's new clockspeed.

The AMD GPU inside the PS4 Pro is reportedly twice as powerful as the original, with the leaked specs suggesting a Polaris 10-based GPU with 36 Compute Units. That sounds an awful lot like AMDís RX 480 and the officially-released details (4.2 TFLOPS of power) seem to support that. The full RX 480 runs at just under 5.2 TFLOPS.

No SSD

Sounds like the big 4K deal is simply the unit can output to 4k. 1080P content will scale from the system out, instead of using the scaler on the 4k TV. They say that has been the big problem, games looking bad on 4K.

This is normal at almost all financial institutions, Wells Fargo was just the most high profile to be caught.

The exact same thing was done at two other top 10 institutions I worked at. You either do it, or you get fired. Or, you get fired for doing it. Welcome to corporate america.

Yeah and it goes all the way down to retail, to push this or that at the register. They have to say it, they have a quota, it irritates the shit out of the customers. But corporate doesn't care. It is as if the standard products they sell can't make money for them anymore and the only way to win is through these pressure sells.

Some more pull string BS:

Wells Fargo also said it made a number of "fundamental changes to help ensure our team members are not being pressured to sell products."

Those changes include enhanced training that values ethics and how to report concerns, increased risk management professionals at branches and additional mystery shoppers.


Training
Ethics
Report

The fucking employee had all of that already, the damn high ups are the one's that made them lose ethics. They probably were trained correctly but then found out what they really have to do. And finally oh yah, Report things that aren't right... that always goes well.

And if those fired are directly involved those names should be turned into the authorities and be charged to, this has to be highly illegal.

Reading you get the pull strings... "Customers are our top priority.", "We're putting in safe guards to make sure". No some high-ups need to be charged to, those responsible a few levels up at the very least.

But with these things the loser is the people, they'll just raise their prices on something to recoup, so really no loss. I guess the city wins ultimately, they are getting a good chunk.

Suppa is completely right. Everyone who is using Steam has in fact already proven that they are willing to "take it up the ass" in all sorts of ways.

Gamers really struggle with all of this, I get the point, but that simply isn't the world we live in. Being capitalism, if not Steam, if not Nvdia, MS, Origin, Apple, NSA, it would have been someone else, because they see opportunity in doing these things.

The world is connected, if for some reason they have it in for you to connect all the dots to hold against you in a court of law for some reason, the only answer I have for you is to get off the grid. Say bye bye to modern electronics.

You can argue a losing cause, that is what is happening. Do you think we keep a score over here to see how smart each one of us are when we make yet another stand against these electronic atrocities? I'm going with no. You are winning nothing and fighting a losing cause. You want capitalism, but you argue for socialism, communism and koombaya.

So nvidia wants me to be connected, well nvidia get in line with your unoriginal idea.

News Comments > Deus Ex Mankind Divided Patch Adds DX12
20. Re: Deus Ex Mankind Divided Patch Adds DX12 Sep 8, 2016, 16:55 HorrorScope
 
Reading up some myself, the results for AMD and Nv as pretty mixed. I will say, I'm not seeing gains for NV, but there are several reporting loss fps for both or very minor losses for one or each. One states it is now bottle-necking the CPU which is what is bringing the FPS down. I'd say out of the chute on avg a very slight gain for amd and a very slight loss for NV.

DX12... will it live up to the hype someday? Or be a DX10 type promise that never happened? Time will tell.

http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/digitalfoundry-2016-three-hours-with-playstation-4-pro


Thanks for the link, but now I need to refine my curiosity statement:

I'd like a shorter article that can articulate what my fps will be on existing 1080P content. Ps4 vs PsPro. To get an idea what kind of boost this thing has. I'd love actual, but I'd be satisfied of what the target is or what some devs are seeing.

They are trying to hype the 4k beyond what we know the better of.
