Tax laws encourage and reward this behavior. I don't blame them for utilizing the system. What incentive is there for them to fork out many billions of dollars when they don't have to?

However the allegations that they use forced child labor is far and above. Is that just 'human rights crap'?

I'll drive my own car, thanks. I don't want Google deciding to fling me off a cliff to save some asshole who cut me off.

You don't get it. As you are falling off the cliff, advertisers can use that information and flash lawyer ads in your face before and after you hit the bottom.

No, long sentences would not act as a deterrent. Do long prison sentences stop the narcotic trade? No. Do speeding laws stop people from speeding? No. Do anti-piracy laws stop people from pirating? No. Kids who do this sort of thing don't understand the consequences and/or think they won't get caught no matter what they do.

We also have laws and rights in theory to protect us from unreasonable punishment. A civilized society has such rights to protect us all. 20 years in hardcore prison doesn't fit this sort of crime. Personal desire for revenge doesn't make society a better place. Prisons often make people worse, not better.

The real problem is the militarized police. They should not be breaking into homes as they are.

F4: what a very sad patch log. In three weeks a team of 100 people cranked this out. NOT. Bethesda, Bethesda never changes.

You do realize that animators, riggers, vfx artists, sound designers, level designers, gameplay designers, environmental artists and character artists have nothing to do with fixing technical bugs, right?

It doesn't look like even the work of one person full time.

It would be so nice to just get everything needed for a mod by clicking on it. Just install and go. NEXUS MM is close but still not the ticket...yet.

I can't imagine that working easily with something like Skyrim where everything's like - Ok, Mod A Needs the Unofficial Patch, but Mod B isn't compatible with it without this other compatibility mod, but the unofficial path just got updated and breaks the compatibility mod until IT gets updated, oh btw have you cleaned your Mod C for known dirty edits?

@.@

It's good for ArmA though, a lot of mods depend on the community base addons mod.

Yes that's called 'dependency hell' and that's from what Linux users suffer.

Of all the possible ways we are being ripped off, this is among the most insignificant. At least you have a choice in the matter. Exercise your freedom to be an informed consumer. That's your responsibility as a human being.

Now please go investigate what international finance industry and other globalist corporations partnered with governments are ripping us all of every day. Then when you find out what's going on, you are justified to be irate. But a fucking steam sale scam gets you fumed? Really?

He addressed only the response to such calls, saying essentially that he believed the cops are too eager to get out the SWAT toys.

It's an accurate assessment, too. Egos love drama. Drama in video games, drama in war, drama in school, drama on TV, drama at work...

The thrill and excitement of bashing people's doors down and holding them at gunpoint is extremely tempting to certain personality types.

Same. The beginning of the game fails to connect the player to the main 'finding son' quest. I'm sure many players who want a story to connect with will put the game down early. That said, it is a fun open world P.A. game.

It's looking great so far and a lot more is to come. It's a community game, no? Just like PR, I think they are going to keep improving it for years and years, so don't think of it like a traditional game. Well I hope that's how it plays out.

News Comments > Fallout 4 Patch Plans
6. Re: Fallout 4 Patch Plans Nov 19, 2015, 19:59 LittleMe
 
Games like this should necessitate abundant patching especially for the reasons they state. Just because the game is complicated doesn't excuse doing as little as possible.

Well at least they've announced something but as usual it's vague and from their history we can be sure they won't fix enough.

This game has a host of issues. The primary annoyance for me is the constant frame skipping and/or micro-stuttering. It might be an issue only with nVidia 900 series cards, or so I've heard. The 60fps cap after all these years is infuriating.

Before release they even said it had no frame rate limit but as usual their own employees think 60=unlimited so basic math was fail that day. Also why is their game's simulation _STILL_ tied to the frame rate? There's no good excuse for that from a big studio for so many years. It can't be that complicated to fix but it comes across as if they are incapable of fixing very long standing issues/annoyances with their engine.

Why haven't they said they are working on SLI support yet? It comes across as contemptuous how they've ignored the PC version. Despite the slow improvement in the past 15 years, they still have poor post release patch support.

The problem is with the police powers to do this in the first place with no good evidence. We live in a police state. These laws do not address the root problem.

Sorry but something "flawed in very serious ways" is not the "nearly perfect" indicated by scoring something 9/10.

Yes I believe we're supposed to read between the lines there. Specifically they seem to be saying "We had to give it a good rating number due to pressure from Bethesda, but here's what we really think."

edit: but it's true what others are saying here. It's the whole package. A flawed game can be great fun and Bethesda is great at making flawed games.

No SLI support? That's pathetic. No purchase for me until they sort that shit out. I game at 1600p and need SLI support. Anyone gaming at 4K is screwed, as no single card can manage 60fps. The only single card that can hit 60fps @ 1080p with maximum settings is the GTX 980 Ti according to that nVidia page.

This is absolutely unacceptable for a major release like this. The engine is just a joke.

We can probably enable SLI using nv inspector. Alternatively, why not play it at high or medium settings until it's sorted out? I never understand people saying or implying that a game is unplayable at anything other than 'maximum settings'. Often the visual fidelity between high and ultra is minimal but the performance difference can be a lot. Maximum settings are there as an option, not a requirement. As with many games, the ultra settings will probably become more of an option as newer/faster video cards are released.

False. Only at maximum settings, which nVidia is exploiting that fact to urge us to buy their top end, premium priced cards. Wait for more thorough performance analysis.

Warning: That page is spoilery with screenshots.

I wonder if using nV Inspector we can successfully enable SLI using Skyrim as a preset.
