So basically, they kept hunting and hunting until they found something to nail these guys with?

Yes, but this was far from the first step. KAT has been hounded from registrar to registrar until they landed in Costa Rica which told the MPAA to go fuck themselves. Since the witch hunters couldn't continue to break their domain linkage, they've resorted to criminal charges.

I'm not going to get in to the whole piracy/theft bullshit debate but I will say that KAT was generally amazing at being able to find things that were obscure or out of print. I hope that they will be able to continue.

I wonder, did they take down torrent listings when someone posted all the requisite info?

No, they regularly took down torrents with notes at the listing header such as "Removed by request of the copyright holder".

Either it's a typo or this has the longest development in history...

The dev has a time machine. They wanted to go back and see what it was really like back in 1017.

Altho, I do think that wired internet should eventually be like wired telephone used to be and still kinda is, ubiquitous, a given. No matter where you go, there it is. I don't care if its fiber, as long as you have the no data cap option, I'm good.

I feel your pain. My current home connection is 3mb down and .5mb up. In reality, I can get about 150K/s of sustainable download speed and about 30K up. My other options are 4G at 5MB with a 5GB cap at $150/month and up. My other option is satellite with lag in the seconds range with a low data cap.

The shitty thing is there is fibre running on a pole that is two feet from my front fence.

Why so complicated?

Booting to a USB stick and following the onscreen prompts is complicated? Who knew?!

CJ_Parker wrote on Jul 9, 2016, 21:25:
Even easier than hell is just using Windows backup which also has disk image functionality.

Except that Windows Backup doesn't do block copy, it does file level copy, and it stores it as a VHD file layout. Which is great, I guess, if I didn't want an exact replica of the disk as it appears on the platters and I wanted to mount my backup as a VM or image with imagex.

But, since I want a backup that I can absolutely trust and recover, Windows Backup simply won't do.

For people whom are concerned about stability after upgrading:

Just use Clonezilla, it's free, to do a full disk image of your boot drive to an external or NAS. Then do the upgrade. If it's fucked, just reimage the disk with the backup you made.

Easy as Hell.

I can't wait for this thing to disappear off the fucking radar and for the fanboys to stop jerking off over it constantly. It'll be boring as fuck with the same content over and over and over again.

As others have said, thanks for the 20 years, Blue!

It has been my daily first stop for as long as I can remember. Although I didn't register an account for many years, I read it long before that.

Keep up the good work and do a retrospective on the hardware that has run BN!

I'm counting down to the moment when I start caring about anything Turtle Rock Studios does.


3,987,245,845,201 ... 3,987,245,845,200 ... 3,987,245,845,199 ...

In 126,435 years, Creston will lose his shit over a Turtle Rock Studios game.

Too many came prematurely, not enough front or back doors to handle them all.

I guess they ran out of donkey punch early and didn't have enough rusty sheriff's stars to go around.

What about amputee and burn victim avatars? Don't discriminate!

MS could give them a hand by grafting on those avatars at a later date.

As nice as the wheelchair option is, it's just going to make people a target for in-game insults.

My eVGA 970 is very quiet and that's when it is running balls out at 80C. I can't hear it over the sound of the game I am playing or even when I am rendering something. Guess I'm going deaf in my old age.

I won't know what I think until I give it a go, so I'm hoping for the best.

I've been playing it for a couple of hours now and I am generally enjoying myself. The combat is certainly fun and the different approaches to combat are flexible enough to not get stale.

The world has a lot of promise and there's a lot of lore that could have been created to better flesh it out. But I agree with the reviewers that say it is under-developed. They certainly needed a writer on staff and in-house during development.

The worst thing about it so far are the conversations. They're incredibly stilted and flat. They're jarring in a way that I can't quite put my finger on.

If this is to be a remake, it needs much better graphics. I am hoping that the textures in the alpha are simply placeholders from when they were simply going to update it.
