Windows 10 will no longer auto install feature updates twice a year

OMG... an 18 month LTSB/LTSC instead of 10 years. LOL

And Microsft was scolding us (literally during a visit) for deploying LTSB throughout our Enterprise... trying to tell us it was only intended for "medical scanners" and such.

What a bunch of Looneys!

Doesn't matter which store... I'd never give Gearbox a dime after DNF and ACM.

I hear you, but what I find funny is it seems you were (and I'm sorry to be blunt) dumb enough to buy them to begin with. What was the rush or thought process on your end there? I'm not mad at him because I didn't even sniff at those two dogs.

Never bought them / played them. Just pissed they turned out too shitty to even be worth bargain bin prices. Was looking forward to both titles at the time.

So if it's a great game, you wouldn't buy it due to past terrible games? I don't get this philosophy. More power to you, but The Witcher 3 Gearbox' name on the opening splash screen, rather than CD Projekt Red, you'd be missing a hell of a game due to two games they didn't even design. For me, I'll exercise caution, but I'm not passing up a great game just because the studio released some stinkers. Pretty much every studio has done some stinkers.

Actually has more to do with Randy's lies and Gearbox's mismanagment of those titles than "design".

Other than some Half-Life expansions 18 to 20 years ago... I think they are shit as a company and marginal as developers. I have zero interest in Brothers in Arms or Borderlands.

on another note...

Witcher 3 was awesome. Witcher 1 sucked balls (IMO). It took a lot of convincing from friends to get me to try 3. After playing 3, I don't know if I could play 2 since the consensus is that it is not as good.

if you use any social media your standing up and speaking on quicksand

I'm on pretty solid ground.

zero social media accounts.
proactively block social media widgets / marketing tracking / 3rd party frames and scripts
Run a hardened Linux as my surfing OS
Run through a non-logging VPN service.
Run a real firewall with non-loged secure DNS
All my phone apps (which I don't have many) are set not to access other apps nor work on cellular (Plan on buying a Librem 5 phone next)
Run my Windows 7 gaming machine offline except for game installations and game patch downloads.

So, yeah... I actually am proactive to keep as much privacy as possible.... short of running TOR and surfing the Dark web.

Is it fullproof?

Nope.

But my footprint is exponentially smaller than most people's and I do find value in that. Fuck Marketers! Some of the biggest scum on the planet.

you only have to use the client to download the game then turn it off almost none of the games need it in the background. Be more informed before making such a comment.

Define "turn off".

Another DRM Launcher does NOT make the industry better, from a consumer point of view.

Yes, competition is better in general, but most people are unwilling to install another data-slurping store application when one or two is suffice. (and mostly unwanted in the first place)

Compete with GOG instead of Steam... get rid of the DRM, Telemetry spyware launchers. Sick and tired of being datamined / monotized without my permission (or being forced into it, which is the same thing in my opinion)

Valve... still running strong
Trokia... defunct

... VtM:Bloodlines2 will be out before HL3 (If ever)

Yo! Gabe! That's pretty effin' pathetic!

Notice that none of the extensions are what everyone really uses... ad blockers, script blockers, etc. They don't want to spread the word on those.

Can we get a SOLID Duke Nukem sequel? Let's forget FOREVER ever happened. In this day in age, it shouldn't be hard to make a proper shooter sequel based on something as nutty as Duke Nukem was...

I'd settle for a Black Mesa style modern remake of Duke 3D like Interceptor was going to do with "Duke Nukem 3D: Reloaded" but Gearbox put the kabosh on it... which is why I dispise Gearbox to this day (along with fucking up Forever and Aliens) and won't give them a dime.

Don't get too excited - this is the same company that released the abysmal Underworld Ascendant.

Would love for this to be an amazing return to the series, but I'm really concerned about the ability of the team to deliver.

Mostly a different team and more money... but it's the Unity engine, which is scary enough.

Meh, the time has come and gone for System Shock. The ideas behind the original were mostly fresh and new to the mainstream at the time of its release but now they've turned in to a trope and are somewhat passe.

Blasphemy!

Yeah... another "DRM launcher" on your machine that slurps up telemetry to yet another company, is always a good idea... especially if it is the ONLY way to purchase a particular game.

Condolences. It is always difficult to put a pet down, but letting them suffer is worse. 14.5 years is definitely a good long life for a dog.

Take a look at this HD Texturepack
https://www.hardocp.com/article/2015/12/17/played_quake_lately

http://quakehdremix.blogspot.com

Supposedly a recent nVidia driver fixed what a previous one broke

The HD texture pack looks great.
Unforunately Wrath is still a little "pixely" if you look at the static screenshots.

Maybe somone will make an HD texture pack for Wrath, or 3DRealms / Killpixel will offer a an HD DLC.

I do also have Amazon Prime, but that's hit or miss on whether you'll have to pay extra (in my case, whatever I'm looking for is almost always an extra charge).

Depends... Like Cable you can susbcribe to other Channels on Prime.

We order so much stuff from Amazon, that Prime pays for itself (wnd we don't buy non-prime movies or shows.)

Since I'm a gear-head... I pay $5 extra a month for the MotorTrend channel on Prime... and that covers 90%of my vieweing.

The wife... I got her Hulu too... so she watches my gear-head stuff, plus other stuff on prime and hulu (ad free).

The thing is, we go enjoy our motorsport toys on the weekends so the only time for TV really is 2-3 hours in the evenings during the work week. IF the weather is nasty, I usually play a game on the PC while she watches her crap on Prime or Hulu.

The 6 dumbest cases against cord-cutting.
I would love to cut the cord, but the most important factor to me is being able to skip advertisements. I can't fucking STAND commercials. With a cable DVR, I timeshift everything I watch and just skip over all the commercials.

Unfortunately, most of the crap channels have 30% commercials (8+ minutes within a 30 minute show and super frequent breaks, 18 or so minutes in an hour show)... which is "a lot of skipping to do".

1. I'd rather not deal with skipping at all (Too lazy)
2. I'm not paying $70-$100 a month for commercials (skippable or not)
