I'm perfectly fine for this game to take 5 years of development.

We live in a day where companies release shit unfinished product.. I love seeing well polished games on release like Witcher 3.


The Cyberpunk 2077 trailer came out in Jan 2013. That was 4.5 years ago.

Look like it might be ok but who the hell picked that god awful music for the trailer?

Music sounds like it's from a creative commons license music site.

Yes, we need to get rid of regulations because the ISPs are so reasonable and customer-focused.

Someone in the gubment finally cured their rectal cranial inversion.

I was honestly shocked when I first read they wouldn't be let in. Glad that got fixed. Apparently they won't let the Somalia girl's team in either.

Luckily, doesn't look like too much damage done. Sounds like they took that illegal Rimworld copy down right quick.

The trick to Prime Day is to wishlist things and then check the prices during the event.

That's so idiotic when people buy into these marketing scams. It's like Black Friday. There are literally dozens of better sales throughout the year but people risk life and limb and insane crowds because they believe the hype.

Yeah, actually some of the prices I've seen on Black Friday in the past are never repeated throughout the year. I thought that they might be once, and watched a bunch of things that were never again offered at that price. Thought some stuff would go cheaper, never did. Had to wait a whole year to pick it up.

It would be great if there was a free and open internet market. That's never going to happen. We have entrenched monopolies. They need regulations. There's a reason four of the top five most hated companies in America are ISPs.

The folks who manufacture the fear about 'net neutrality' are despicable, imo. It's one of the worst-written articles I've ever read, actually. It's pure naked, ignorant fear-mongering from start to finish. I've been an Internet consumer every day since 1995, and the *only* changes I have seen have been for the better--it's so much better now than it was then and it was all accomplished without the aid of a single, solitary government regulation. Without a bunch of heavy-handed top-down laws governing the Internet, the Internet has flourished. What they are trying to do is talk weak-minded people into believing a "need" exists to regulate the Internet, by a government that can barely tie its own shoes--so that they can ultimately *control the content.* If what you want is government censorship--then, yes, by all means support 'network neutrality.' Anytime people want to politicize technology you can be sure that their motivation is *not* good for consumers. The best Internet is an Internet free to respond to its customers. For some unfathomable reason, 'net-neutrality' dupes believe that crooked politicians and "Washington" care more about them than their ISPs--who need *their business* just to survive.

1. "My personal experience has been fine so there's no problem!"

2. There absolutely have been regulations on the internet for decades. For example, not collecting tax on internet commerce.

3. ISPs don't need to please their customers at all. They are a MONOPOLY or at best a duopoly. A monopoly is even worse than the government, because at least the government is accountable to the voters. A monopoly is accountable to no one.

4. Net neutrality has nothing to do with censorship. If it goes away, ISPs will censor though, anyone who doesn't pay them.

The US worker had been headed down for decades now regardless of the internet. And let's face it, while you can actually learn stuff online the overwhelming majority is just needless entertainment/porn/games. If it ended tomorrow people would miss it for all of a week before getting on with their lives once more. The internet doesn't create food and shelter and clothing.

Did you read the article?

It is among these workers, sometimes referred to as 'blue-collar,' 'rural,' or 'low-income,' where our country's still-active digital divide is most pronounced, and even growing. With nearly each passing day, more and more of the resources that they and other non-super-wealthy Americans need simply to survive are located online (and often only online), from unemployment applications to medical services, as well as the job and educational opportunities needed to change their situations for the better, for good.

Emphasis mine. What you're saying is "No one needs plumbing. They can just dig an outhouse and haul water." That's not the world we live in any longer, not how our society is structured. We can't go back to the paper economy of 1990 just because we want to. The internet has become ubiquitous. With ubiquity comes reliance. Monopolistic industries like ISPs need more regulation, not less. ISPs are already making 100% gross profits, do they really need more money?

You utterly fail to grasp the reality of basic economics. Everyone everywhere can't be involved in service based economies. People need to actually make shit. Yes, people need plumbing, and they need plumbers more than they need the internet. How can you be so obtuse?
How can YOU be so obtuse. The internet has become an essential service, but are suggesting that it is not.

Verizon data of 6 million users leaked online.

If only Verizon had the money to spend on security.

(Verizon makes $5B in net profit per quarter, BTW)

When the 7800 is clocked higher than the 7700 it averages less frames per second???

How can this be, it goes against everything one would expect. Something must be amiss with their testing methodology. Unless the 7800s ipc is significantly lower, which it does not appear to being.

On the bright side it sucks down more juice.

Maybe more overhead with more cores to manage? Maybe most modern games are optimized for four cores and take a hit with more?
