The drivel that people post on the internet is mind numbing.

However, Google is free. Apple is not.

LOL. No isn't, my friend. YOU are the product.

I don't like that business model, especially since a lot of it is without my permission. (Web masters using Google Analytics and Google Syndication all over the web)

Same with Facebook icons and other social media embedded shit all over the web. I'm a member of none of them, yet they have the balls to try to track me without my permission.

Apple has it's faults, but at least they aren't in the business of gathering and selling your habits to scumbag advertisers (which I rank up there with politicians, on the scumbag level).

Boy rationalizations are fun aren't they? 'They're only one of the most evil corps in the world but I still support them because reasons....'

Google is WAY more evil. I don't use any of their shit, including search. (Well, Youtube... but I don't have an account and privacy blockers mostly kill their analytics).

But that's just my opinion of what is the lesser of 2 evils.

I know there are folks here that like to bash apple... for whatever reasons (apple tax, Foxconn slave labor, Ireland tax evasion, muppets they buy a device every year, etc. etc.)

That said, I prefer iPhone for 2 major reasons.

1. My device is always updated.
2. They tell Governments to go "Pound Sand" as far as creating a backdoor to their devices.

And since they allowed Ad Blocking and have built-in app control (of what apps can look at your data)... I really have no reason to look for an alternative.

Oh, and Google is last motherfuckers on earth that I want datamining me.

The only issue I have is the fucking carriers datamining me... and that doesn't matter what smart phone you have.

I just want a mod of all the original levels, for nostalgia sake.

I mean a real re-imagination, not a cut and paste of the current game's assets from snapmap to "sort of" resemble the original levels.

News Comments > Deus Ex Mankind Divided Patch Adds DX12

I got about 35 hours total and I did all the side missions.

Did I break into every empty apartment / store and rob it of goodies?

No.

Did I hack / read every computer, and pick up every e-book and pocket secretary?

No.

But I'm pretty sure I completed every side mission available.

I just refinished HR. It was really just Detroit and Hong Kong, no? Other places were 1 level.

I did not like it nearly as much as the first time. Maybe because I ghosted the whole time and just kept walking behind guards, or maybe because there's nothing this game did that Dishonored didn't come along and do better.

I'm not far enough into HR to remember... but at least Hong Kong was multi-mission... in MD everything non-1-mission happens in Prague, and there's only 3 "1-mission" areas. I think there were a couple more in HR.

You really like Dishonored better? I didn't think it was all that great, but to each their own!

21 hours from start to finish, including the side missions. Not too shabby, but because of the ending the game feels incomplete. If the promised free DLC that is supposed to come at the end of the year doesn't complete the game, or they dare to charge for it, Im gonna be pretty pissed off.

I just wish there were more places (other cities with more than one mission) to really visit, like the 2011 Game.

Other than that, it was pretty good.

I'm re-playing Human Revolution, now.

As for DX12, completely irrelevant to my Windows 7 gaming rig.

Not surprised about VR sales, the price points are too high and a lot of people don't want to be in on the first generation of the tech. I'm really interested but its inevitable that better products are coming so I'm just sitting it out until then. I don't mind the early adopter thing but it is a ton of cash to do it with VR so /shrug.

I actually have zero interest in owning VR. I think VR would be better served with a "brick and mortar shop" that has extremely expensive - cutting edge tech (Think Lawnmower Man), that folks could go visit for entertainment... like Paintball, Laser Tag, and those fast indoor electric go-cart places.

VR in the home can't compare to that.

If they're porting to both consoles (as the rumor) they have x86 code at that point, so the pc version would be gravy...


Technically, both consoles are x86 AMD APUs. I think you mean XBone OS to PC OS, would be gravy.

All it takes is the CPU manufactures to quit making chipset drivers that will work with older OS's, and that's all she wrote.

And that has always happened, now are they stopping it earlier than usual?

Pretty sure they are. Windows 7 is supposed to be supported until 2020, and manufacturers made Windows XP chipset drivers right up to EOL for that OS... even beyond.

Gentlemen:

It's not about CPU compatibility. It's about Chipset drivers. If Intel and AMD no longer make drivers that work with Windows 7-8.1 then you are forced to use Windows 10.

If you read the article, It's already a PITA to isntall Windows 7 on Skylake via USB (External USB DVD or thumb drive). You have to inject the drivers in a custom image via DISM, first, to get it to work (And yes, I have encountered this with our latest workstations at work)

All it takes is the CPU manufactures to quit making chipset drivers that will work with older OS's, and that's all she wrote.

I'm pretty sure there are no 3rd party chipsets anymore like VIA or OPTI for Intel or AMD, anymore.

The bottom line is that we are at the mercy of the CPU manufacturers for chipset drivers. Whether Kabylake works on current chipsets or not... remains to be seen... but once there are no drivers for future chipsets... that's it.

Other than the extra Episode levels... I don't think this is any different than the Megaton Edition... which I already have.

Unless that "True3D" mode somehow looks better.

Looks like Skylake will be my last processor for a Windows Gaming rig.

Gonna eventually switch my 27" iMac to Linux Mint, anyway, since I can't stand Yosemite nor El Capitan. (When Mavericks goes EOL)

Yeah, had to understand. Benefits of cord cutting:
- Cheaper
- No commercials
- On-demand
- Binge watching

I cut the cord more than a decade ago, never looked back. Never happier.

Ditto.

Unfortunately the content libraries are slowly getting worse, as the streaming services rely more on their own content, and less on keeping their libraries full.

I'm on the edge of dropping Netflix because of this.
I'll keep Amazon Prime though... mainly because the streaming is a bonus to all the shit I get shipped for free, even though their "prime" library ain't all that great either.

I understand that the content providers are jacking the prices in favor of Cable / Satellite TV, but eventually I will just go full circle and put up an HD antenna and say "fuck all of the services". At least with an antenna, there is an actual reason to have commercials.

No... Because it's WAY shoulder-cam (practically side cam) like Alan Wake. I can't stand that.
