Man I hope AMD can pull through. The industry needs a competitor for Intel.

I think they will be okay, AMD is supplying the processor and graphics chips for both the new XBox and the new PS4.

Cool? Really? Those Microsoft Surface ads are about the most horrible thing I've ever seen on a TV ad. The ad is the only place you'll see one of these IPad ripoffs - I know exactly zero people that own one, but easily half my office owns an I Pad. Somehow in the ad everyone has one, and is singing, and break dancing about it, they never show you what you can do with it besides dance.

I saw the video of this last week, and it looks exhausting. I get wanting the VR experience that the Occulus Rift brings, but why would I want to run around on a treadmill?

The only way I'd ever see one of those 4DX films is if the film contained a massive amount of flatuence and fecal matter throughout the film. Yeah, sort of like Shit Wars.

I don't think we need a 3rd dimension in film, let alone this crappy 4th dimension that's described in exciting details like "bubbles dropping from the ceiling". I don't want anything dropping from the ceiling on me when I'm at the movies. I also don't want people to bring cellphones or crying babies.....come to think of it, maybe I'll just skip the movie and get the DVD and enjoy the movie in peace.

If it's not FO wtf knows because it sure as shit isn't TES.
I would love to see them make a Terminator game with the Skyrim Engine. That would be killer to have a Hugh open world with Terminators running around all over and trying to survive.

Now that is an awesome idea. I wish I owned a game company so I could steal it.

Can't take credit for this but postings on Reddit indicate it's a Fallout 4 teaser trailer with spinning records that shows the music of Bach, which was used in Fallout 3. Another Record says Moonbeam Trio on it.

Not sure about that game, but for a lot of them it just easier to buy new copies on GoG or Steam to get rid of the antiquated CD checks, especially if you can get them for three bucks on sale.

The sad thing is, even trying to download mods for things like Minecraft leads one to walk a constant minefield (pun not intended) of malware. I had to forbid my kid from installing mods himself to minecraft because even though I taught him how to extract and install the mods, he's not ready to walk that minefield.

Just gave my nephews Minecraft, and was surprised that the mod sites for it were exactly as you say: full of malware. I was too late to save them, but that is a learning experience for kids.

1. Re: Comcast caught hijacking web traffic Apr 11, 2013, 09:32 McSterls
 
While I'm no fan of Comcast, I believe they have the right to show you your data usage if you are approaching the cap. How else would they show you this info, or alert you of violating the six strike rule if they don't redirect your traffic?

I'm surprised he received this notice though, I wonder what area he lives in. In my area Comcast currently isn't enforcing bandwidth caps, they are supposed to be implementing an overcharge policy but that hasn't come to fruition yet.

So is this game supposed to be out today or what's the deal I have not even heard of this before.

Article I read this morning said May 1st, but that the date hadn't been confirmed by UbiSoft

It's true, I read an article this morning on Zite where the author was playing the game after hacking Uplay. They pointed out that the PC version remains unannounced, but was finished and available for download.

Oh, How I hate Ubisoft.

$400

I jumped to your link and almost bought one, after looking at the resolution of the samples it's considerably poorer quality then the current generation of makerbot units. 2 grand for one of theirs is too much money for now - I think I can wait a few more years.

Just watched the video, obviously from the single player campaign and cut scenes - I recall they showed a bunch of SP stuff for BF3 too, who even played the SP campaign? People buy Battlefield games for the Multi-player - so why do they never show that? I'm sure it looks great, but does it look any better then BF3??

Wow, looks good.


It looks great! But, when I bought Arma II, final..not Alpha or Beta there were a lot of bugs that had to be ironed out. I still haven't gone back and played it. So why buy Arma III as an Alpha. you know it's going to be problimatic.
