Unfortunately the PS3 version is 720p, and my eyes are sending me hate mail. How is the PC port? Assuming it scales up in resolution, I may have to pick that version up instead. Steam reviews are pretty damn favorable. Are the Mouse/KB controls tolerable, or does it require a gamepad?

There are basically no improvements to the core game or engine. It's a straight port, but it runs really well and obviously you can run at higher resolution, plus they released it at $30 MSRP. I bought the base game and Dark Arisen when they came out on PS3, and had no problem whatsoever paying ~$24 (at GMG upon release) for Dark Arisen PC right when it came out. I very easily put another 100+ hours into replaying it on PC.

And I played it with a DS4 pad so I cant comment on mouse/keyboard (if you already own a PS3, why wouldn't you want to just use a DS3?)

Been using an XFX PSU for quite a few years now. Frankly the brand isn't near as important as the OEM the unit is based upon, with the brand really only impacting the warranty. Just consult The Tom's Hardware PSU Tier List to make sure your potential PSU uses quality Japanese components.

Type in "gg ez" to everyone now and you'll end up telling your fellow players such delightful phrases as:

I feel very, very small... please hold me...
It's past my bedtime. Please don't tell my mommy.
I'm wrestling with some insecurity issues in my life but thank you for playing with me.
I'm trying to be a nicer person. It's hard, but I'm trying, guys.

Yeah gg ez is such an offensive term, better censor it so we don't offend Anita Sarkeesian or something. Good to know Daddy Blizzard is making sure internet bullies can't upset me in my video games.

I mean I generally get whatever is on sale (and I am very limited to a small whole bean selection in my shitty supermarkets) but I like Starbucks beans. French, Italian, Espresso, Sumatra dark roasts are all good. And no, they don't "taste burnt."

It's up to personal preference but you CAN freeze coffee in an airtight container. Some argue doing so actually yields a more uniform grind, while others argue it is too harsh on the beans.

Anyways the smaller Starbucks bags go on sale (for ~$7 usually) often enough at the supermarket that I tend to just buy ~3 of them at a time and restock as needed.

You 20 down is rather slow, but you only get 1 up for $50/m?

In my experience ALL US ISPs offer cripplingly slow upstreams. They do not want people hosting anything from residences.

Woman, 73, fatally shot by Florida officer role-playing as ‘bad guy’ during citizen police academy

That's so fucking stupid I don't know where to begin. The entire department should be buried alive and left for dead.

Sandbox is a synonym for open world.

Witcher 3 is an open world game. It ain't a sandbox. Sandbox implies creativity as a major factor in play.

if you really need this sort of Guffin and don`t just enjoy roleplaying/creating your own stories in an infinite sandbox

Yeah we were fed this line with Elite Dangerous as well and the game is BORING AS FUCK. There have to be adequate SYSTEMS in PLACE to ALLOW that, which NMS seems completely lacking.

It`s quite sad to see that majority (at least judging by comments here) of once-leading in innovation PC gaming community are locked in a baseless hate exercise

I certainly don't hate the game (I HATE Donald Trump. A video game is just a video game), but I think everything shown of it since its initial trailer hasn't done a bit of good in making the game look either fun or interesting... which is a shocking achievement for a title which has had as much press as NMS.

Wiki

Hurricane Sandy (unofficially known as "Superstorm Sandy") was the deadliest and most destructive hurricane of the 2012 Atlantic hurricane season, and the second-costliest hurricane in United States history. Classified as the eighteenth named storm, tenth hurricane and second major hurricane of the year, Sandy was a Category 3 storm at its peak intensity when it made landfall in Cuba.[1] While it was a Category 2 storm off the coast of the Northeastern United States, the storm became the largest Atlantic hurricane on record (as measured by diameter, with winds spanning 1,100 miles (1,800 km)).[3][4] Estimates as of 2015 assessed damage to have been about $75 billion (2012 USD), a total surpassed only by Hurricane Katrina.[5] At least 233 people were killed along the path of the storm in eight countries.

I've never had any instruction and so my drive has a slice... but since I almost always do it I just call it a fade and play into it

My irons tend to fly a lot straighter, though. During a particular year after work I would head to a nearby driving range and just hit a big bucket maybe three times a week (it's remarkably cathartic). The range was called (rather ironically) "Smiley's" and was the most rundown, weed infested place you can imagine, with a depressingly small and neglected mini golf course and a couple of shoddy batting cages. The older guy behind the desk day after day looked the very picture of melancholic, only responding to the approach of the few guests with a forced exclamation of "yeah!" every time, like clockwork. I moved away for a while and returned to find the old place shuttered up and emblazoned with a "for sale" sign

True story, I HATE yelling fore, even when I know I should. Yelling on a golf course just feels so dirty... it doesn't help that my regular playing partner also never yells it (he hits toward people way more often than I do).

Haven't played a single Blizzard game from then until Overwatch. Love Overwatch, definitely one of the greatest MP FPS in a long time.

Exact opposite. And I was pretty hyped on the beta for OW but burned out after launch in just a few weeks. I was just hoping for another TF2 I could sink a thousand hours into and the thought of sinking a thousand hours into OW makes me want to puke, so I just haven't touched the game in at least a month.

VS used to regularly have videos with 100+ votes. Either the quality of submitted videos has dropped sharply or there aren't as many people voting...

It shows that a person will pander to anything to try to squeeze another vote out.

I mean all Trump can do is pander and posture because nobody can legitimately vote for him based on policy: HAS HAS NONE.

And 99% of politicians pander or posture to one degree or another. It's infuriating and depressing to see an otherwise honorable candidate do it, but in a system where money is the defining resource to launching a political campaign, such practice is all but a requirement to getting elected.

Crucial M500 is my game drive, Samsung Evo is system drive. No complaints here, but then again I waited so long to switch to SSD that virtually anything seems like worlds of improvement.

Oh wow he signed "a pledge"?

Yeah if he somehow gets elected and somehow somebody brings this up the immediate response will doubtless be "it's not in the budget."

He's just posturing.
