Nah. Pac-Man.

Agree! Pac-man came up in many of the "most popular video games" lists I reviewed. Though I will admit they were kind of old, so they may not take into account Fortnite's current popularity.

Don't you mean Fortnite? I'm pretty sure Fortnite destroyed PUBG.

If you likes spam building and your about 12 years old...then Fortnite is for you sir...

I'm not talking about gameplay versus gameplay. I'm talking about the number of people playing or watching Fortnite versus PUBG. Case in point, on Twitch there are 251,757 viewers for FN versus 17,161 viewers for PUBG (at the time of this writing). Why would I mean anything other than viewership and player numbers?

I swear... the comprehension of individuals on this site is staggeringly bad at times.

Star Citizen is an idea, and for millions now something they are willing to invest money in. You call them "gullible idiots." So I ask you, have you ever given money to an idea that later turned out to be a foolish decision? The question is rhetorical. In other words, something to think about before you cast aspersions on others.

Day One, Chris Roberts asking you for money ……..

You are an idiot for ever thinking that Chris Roberts was ever capably of making good on those words.

Chris Roberts Lies.

Heaps of evidence before this kickstarter to show what was going to happen.

Hindsight is 20/20. I do hope you understand what that means because I'm not going to explain how utterly wrong your assessment is.

Throw a Hail Mary pass to get the game to like 98% completion and then finish up the remaining 2% post-launch with patches and bug fixes in a DLC.

Annnd that's the problem of today's game development : halfbaked games costing the full price ....gezz to say that's okay is.......

2% is normal. Do you expect to be able to defeat the main villain of a WOW expansion at launch? No. Of course not. That happens several patches and updates later. So it's either that or let Chris continue on his current trajectory. I'm pretty sure most would choose the Hail Mary 98% delivery.

By the way, mathematically, 98% isn't half-baked.

I feel like the crowdfunding aspect of Star Citizen would make for a great Black Mirror episode. In Black Mirror's signature bleak tales of technology gone awry, amplify the story to national or global propositions.

First, in case you missed it yesterday, Chris and Sandi Roberts, for the second time in two weeks, again shamelessly used their very young kids to help promote their on-going scam.

I don't believe Chris and Sandi are intentionally trying to scam people. But I do think that Chris is creating lag on the project that is preventing it from reaching a state where game delivery can happen in a year or so. There's a fine line between perfection and insanity. I think the best move for Chris now is to do what CD Projekt Red did and up staff and contractors to a 1,000 folks (they did that on Witcher 3). Throw a Hail Mary pass to get the game to like 98% completion and then finish up the remaining 2% post-launch with patches and bug fixes in a DLC. Also, I think they should open a studio in Warsaw and start hiring a ton of people there. It costs significantly less to hire a Polish developer than in Germany, the UK, the US and so forth.

It's not something a "normal" person would brag about.

This thread is called "Star Citizen Refund Refusals." My comment isn't about the $930 that I spent on Star Citizen. It's about getting a full refund. The second link to Polygon should have made that point clear. And I'm not bragging about either. IOW, a fundamental lack of comprehension on your part related to my post.

I kind of assumed it was common knowledge on this site, but yes. I'm also one of the few to get it all back thanks to Sandi Gardiner. So, yay me!

The interview with the Polygon reporter was interesting.

The X-Games are sports, the E-Sports are games...get over it.

This is why we have more than two genders. The definition of words are arbitrary. Who cares what the dictionary defines something as!

That EA didn't support Andromeda post release properly is why to me Anthem might as well not exist. That Andromeda story was sequel bait and did not resolve fuck all. And the writing quality is an insult. That quality will no doubt continue in Anthem as it doesn't seem like they hired decent writers this time around either.

Remember Bioware Edmonton isn't Bioware Montreal. Montreal created Andromeda, but it is Edmonton who is responsible for Bioware's best titles.

I thought Ohlen was still on SWTOR, not Anthem? But yeah 22 years at one company, man that's a long time. Looks like he's getting into making D&D sourcebooks. Sounds a lot less stressful.

I'm sure it'll have stress, but nothing like the stress associated with developing video games.

imagine the stress of those devs that made andromeda, both during its fucked up development AND the post-launch drama.

They created that stress both in their collective ideas and in grafting their beliefs into their work and pushing it out to a demographic that was neither ready for it nor wanted it. That said, I played Andromeda and liked it for the reason that it is a good game. However, I wouldn't call it excellent, nor a worthy entry into the Mass Effect IP.

A follow-up gleamed from disk-partition.com:

----

Why do we need to partition HDD?

The working mechanism of SSDs and HDDs are different. The reason we install the operating system on the first partition of a hard disk drive is that the outermost tracks have a higher transfer rate. Putting the data and other files on a separate partition than the C drive makes the OS work more efficiently and fast. In short, we partition a traditional hard drive because of its physical structure.

Is it okay to partition SSD?

For SSD, there’s no such thing as a transfer rate differential. Multiple memories have replaced the spinning disk and the read/write head in traditional hard drives. Since there are no moving mechanical components in SSD, the transfer rate of different SSD memory chips is almost the same. SSD won’t confine the data to a particular physical region of it. Thus you don’t need to partition an SSD if you want to get better performance from it.

----

I figured this was the case, but it's nice to know that I don't need a partition on an SSD.
