Okay, the only MEGA AWESOME acronym LEO that I know is Low Earth Orbit.

Well said, but I gotta admit I'm mighty curious where you work. Because the only acronym of LEO that I know is Low Earth Orbit.

HAH, these were all great. I wish I could say it stood for Low Earth Orbit and that I was hanging out in my ship circling the earth while I study you humans. Yes, I am an alien.... Who visits Blues News on a daily basis since 2000 =)

Serious note, it means law enforcement officer. Been at it for 10 years and have 20 more to go. I know it’s not the most popular job these days in the news. I like to think I'm one of the good ones.

Side note, you wouldn’t believe how hard it is to find a PC gamer in law enforcement. I'm surrounded by console gamers and people who honestly didn’t know other games existed beyond the COD / Battlefield franchise. I mention games we all grew up on such as C&C, MechWarrior, Warcraft, Myth The Fallen Lords (personal favorite) and they all stare at me blankly, saying "did they come out on the original Xbox??".

Hi Blue,

Just wanted to say thanks for all that you do. Been dropping by this site almost everyday for about 17 years. I was 15 when I stumbled across this site in 2000. This place has been my homepage ever since.

Thank you for your hard work, dedication, and perseverance in getting us the news and info we all love to read.

Had a long rough night at work last night (LEO) and realized we (and I most importantly) don't say thank you enough to people who effect our lives.

So, thanks again Blue for giving us / I a great place to come all these years. Thank Mrs. Blue as well! Can't forget the wife and all her hard work / support!

Well that explains a lot.

Have a RAT MMO 7, one of the best mice I have ever owned. Been having problems getting the software to play nicely with Windows 10 and their support was shit for help.

Went out and about a G900, but still trying to get the MMO7 to work. Was originally made by Cyborg, who was bought by Mad Catz.

A loss in competition or options always sucks

Super excited like everyone else.

But the website states, "the game will feature an open-ended Mercenaries-style campaign that blends RPG ‘Mech and MechWarrior management with modern turn-based tactics."

I'd love if they made something like the trailer they showed back in 2008/2009. I will still be happy with a turn base game, but I would love mechwarrior of old!

I really don't get all the hate towards SC. Good/bad, it will get released, and if it's bad, then it will get patched until it's good, unless all of you think 70 million isn't nearly enough for all that.

It's the largest crowdfunded project to date, so obviously people want this game to be a reality, yet so many of you bash it at every opportunity possible, why? If you don't approve how about just ignoring it and waiting until it's released to push your judgement/opinions off on everyone. I can see a healthy debate but a select few of you seem to take it upon yourselves to bash it at every opportunity in every article Blue posts. I think we are aware of your opinions by now, how about letting those who aren't anti SC fanatics discuss it in the comments without hateful statements by ill informed people. Maybe someone has an actual question they'd like answered, not gonna happen here the way it is currently.

I've been reading Bluesnews since the 90's, but lately I've avoided it because of all the negative commentary by a select few trolls, it really ruins the experience. This isn't fair to Blue, why should he lose out on site traffic because a few of you have an overwhelming need to share your negativity far too often?

Statements like this
What a weird world we live in where customers themselves fund games before they're even made
are just plain unnecessary, it's called crowdfunding, many things are available to us now that wouldn't be if it weren't for crowdfunding, everyone knows this, go somewhere else and attempt your (negative originality).

This used to be a fun gaming news site, but a few of you are trying your best to turn it into reddit or 4chan. I'd like to keep BluesNews as it is/was, that is why I've came here for so long, and I doubt I'm the only one who thinks this way. I didn't post this to hurt your feelings, make you look bad, or call down the wrath of righteous reply posts, I posted this because you're being a douchebag, quit being a douchebag.

Amen

Just please don't be some F2P game. Just go with a Generals theme or I'd even take a remake of the original by now. Would be nice to play what started it all with updated graphics and some mechanics.

Am I one of the few that miss the Rogue Spear days? I wish people still played that version.

It would be awesome if they did a remake or this new installment that was somewhat faithful to the old ways of the series.

Hardware > Need a new monitor
1. Need a new monitor Feb 7, 2011, 01:57 Dalumberjack
 
Ok, so I have Googled the hell out of looking for the best gaming monitor. Seems most of the monitors I find are no longer in production or are not for sale anymore. What happened to 1920 x 1200 16:10 monitors?!? Seems the computer world is trying to turn into the TV one and making us use TV monitors with this 1080p stuff.
I really want a 1920 x 1200 monitor decent for gaming. 16:10 is a plus. I think I found what I want but I am looking for a second opinion and any other suggestion.

The two I am stuck between is the Dell SP2309W [url=]http://reviews.cnet.com/lcd-monitors/dell-sp2309w/4505-3174_7-33456038.html[/url]

And this Dell U2410 [url=]http://reviews.cnet.com/lcd-monitors/dell-ultrasharp-u2410/4505-3174_7-33772972.html[/url]

I know the U2410 is the newer one but it has some issues with tint etc... While the SP2309w is not made anymore and is a little harder to find, it has a high resolution which is a plus (is the resolution normal or is it one of those of shoot ones?). Both seem to have no lag for gaming. I'm just not sure which one is the best choice.
Any other options or opinions is appreciated. I don't want to spend more than $600. If i did, I would buy the Dell U2711... that thing makes me drool.

Current monitor is the Gateway FHD2400. Don't know if anyone knows this monitor. I thought it was ok until I just read all the reviews and how bad the color is and stuff. Main reason for upgrade is building new machine and wifey gets old one and the old monitor.

ADDED: I am not too sure of 3d gaming hence why you don't see any 3d monitors that I was looking at. haven't tried it and really don't feel the need too unless I am really REALLY missing out on something.

it says minimum requirements guys. you would need these hardware requirements just to be able to play which isn't too bad. We should be more interested in the suggested or recommended requirements for the game.

This looks so cool, i just wish it had a single player component with it. also what ever happened to that awesome video we all saw about a year ago with the new Mechwarrior IP?

no one has heard a thing since they got sued about the video. It had certain "mechs" in it that were from the original battle tech universe that can't be used... I think....

I was looking forward to that game, but being so long in the dark, I have given up hope.
