A) How does he know where the child porn is. B) How does anyone know it's 20%. If they know the total amount than they must know where it is, right? And if that's the case why is it still there?

I was going to call you dumb but it occurred to me that despite being a member here forever, you might not understand how this website actually works. This website indexes news but those links and headlines are not the total sum of the information. You have to click on the links, read the articles and then use your brain to interpret the information. This information might or might not be correct, you have to make an attempt to decide for yourself based on the facts and your own analysis.


I think you may have something important to say here, but I need a TL;DR version.

I've kinda been wanting to try Conan, but I'm settling on ARK for now because of their conveniently-timed $10 sale. Should have more stuff to do with less bugs anyway, right?

Fuck ARK, get Subnautica instead.

Single player makes it a totally different experience for me vs the others listed.

Why don't they just use Amazon AWS? Amazon had virtually limitless scale.

Not the same thing.

More than one, they're everywhere. Their numbers are only increasing.

Can we get an executive order over here please!

What I expect from game mode: Pause any cpu intense background tasks like defender or windows update. What I don't expect: to magically increase framerates with the same hardware.

right, they say it has more impact on the minimum fps rather than the maximum... and these days i think that may be much more important

games lately have had more issues with "frame pacing" than just simply cranking out fps... its much better to have a firm 60 than something that goes from 30 - 90 in a wildly erratic manner from time to time

True, but what is 30 fps? We got a console gamer up in here still? I don't mind wildly erratic fps between 60 & 144!

Right. All these new screens and options are lite weight console type screens. If that was the future and the old options gutted... yeah that would do it for me, unless every reasonable feature for users (not MS) is addressed. To this day I have whatever version of win10 that existed when the free offer time expired and won't be moving unless something big happens... in my favor.

Hope we can turn off WGM. I don't need another performance hit beyond the ones already occurring in Windows 10. My least favorite is the Draconian updates downloading whenever regardless of what I'm doing. I can't stop this, but I know it's going on according to Resource Monitor. Very annoying.

There are several ways to disable the Windows Updates. Option 1 only works on Win10 Pro, and I don't think option 2 works anymore, but options 3-5 work.

Option 5 isn't complete and won't work by itself, you have to stop the Bits service to. But that is the option I would always recommend, 2 simple services to stop.

For my understanding, how does this play out.

1. Zeni feels wrong.
2. Creates lawsuit.
3. Caramack supposedly wipes drive.

Got that, but what happens next?

Court order and FBI comes to office and confiscates system?

I just wonder how the drive is surrendered.

What is really needed though is a 2nd gen of VR goggles that somehow offload the majority of computations or at least offer image quality and lenses (where are adaptable bio-lenses????) improvements.

This is what has to happen to get the next tier of consumers into the mix.

Well shit, was hoping to buy an Oculus one of these days, hopefully this doesn't affect them making more. I guess there's always the VIVE.

I bet the VIVE project gets shelved too.

Eventually they'll have the technology to put super high res screens into something as comfortable as a pair of glasses, the bulky things they have now will never be a mainstream success.

But that can all just be Vive 5.0 or something like that or another name, but roots all back to Vive. There was some display tech I was reading on last night where pixel density and latency barriers were shattered, both would be solid benefits to VR. To me though they still need to get that cost down some for not even mainstream success, which I don't care about that.

That was one of the things they won, they can still make VR systems to sell.

Too bad, they could have done us all a favour by dreamcasting the rift down the drain. There are other OpenVR solutions, there's not only 2 players in the market, so it still wouldn't be a monopoly, but the Vive is the far superior, elegant solution.

For all the hate that I heap on Valve for their garbage practices with Steam, they do make one hell of a VR system, and they're supporting the ecosystem too. Respect where it's due, Valve hit it out of the park with the Vive. And if them continuing to support their mostly irrelevant SteamOS and Steam Boxes for years and years, at least we can assume that the steam VR team will keep this experiment going for many years to come, even if VR as a whole doesn't take off.

I like the Steam Controller and Link to! Yeah they do us all a solid. PC Gaming has never been in better shape for the consumer.
