So, apparently MS wants to make XBone and PC the same. They are basically going to be making everything for both and making them cross compatible.

When I was a kid I used to chug Pepsi and then belch that line. I can't tell you the number of times my mom smacked me for that in restaraunts.

If I'm reading the fuckometer right, it's registering as zero.

Let me check again - yep, zero fucks.


Didn't mind the first one, but then they never gave us PC folk the sequels. Doesn't look like they plan to, but they still want to try to milk a re-release on PC. Fuck. That.

Dream Theater has always been and always will be pretentious heavy handed masturbatory schlock

To each their own. They are one of my favorite bands, although this newest album is my least favorite by them. I've been listening since I saw them in a local club in upstate NY in 1992.

This game, however, seems like a lame idea at best.

That's why I quit IT, there's no future in it here. Food, clothing, shelter, the 3 main staples people will always need. Find work in one of those fields. Most of my family are tradesmen, they make great money and never lack for work.

Same with having a family. You're nuts to have one. At the very least keep it to 1 kid. The future is just too uncertain in the first world anymore.

And I agree we're going to see massive moves in robotics replacing workers all around.

Get some land. Learn to be self-sufficient. Re-learn lost skills.

I still have a goodly amount of family that live out in the wilds who hunt - that's next on my list to learn to do - and produce their own food. They have a few acres, virtually no overhead, no debt, and lead simple lives. That's how to live.


Oh. A prepper.

And yet, suddenly, 100% of the shit Cutter spews makes perfect sense now.

You take that back! Cutter, you will always make nonsense to me!

I went in with pretty low expectations for Saul season 1 and really enjoyed it. Grabbed season 2 on itunes, but am still trying to wrap up a few other shows first.

We really are in a golden age of tv right now. It used to be that tv was for b-list folks that couldn't make it on the big screen, but anymore tv matches, or in some cases (Game of Thrones, Walking Dead) even surpasses what could be done in a reasonable time frame for a movie.


If you have Amazon Prime check out Mad Dogs. I agree, a decade ago there was barely anything worth watching, and now there are so many great shows I can't even watch them all.

Can't wait to put my money down.

Fun watching all you old fogeys whining about how your black and white tv is just fine and you don't need to spend the $1000 for a color set.

Yup, 640k is enough memory for anybody.

Speech in movies? What a laugh! I don't want a giant face in a movie theater creepily talking to me!

I hate riding the train too, because at 20mph, it makes me want to throw up. That's faster than man was designed to move.


Yes, we are totally still pre-mainstream. But the writing is on the wall. 800 is cheap for a generation 1 of any new technology. I can't think of many that were cheaper, except the first iphone was cheaper (at 599 it matches the introductory price of the Oculus).

This is the game I'm most looking forward to, and the reason I'm more excited about the Vive than the Oculus at this point: http://store.steampowered.com/app/380220/

That game looks OK...but the things I keep thinking when watching all these videos:

Lots of people are going to pull the towers off their desks

Lots of people are going to get injured running around a room they can't see.

Some of you have forgotten or were not around when 3DFX launched.. an entire industry exists and todays console and pc market owes its current existance to one decision. .to launch the 3DFX card on the popularity of one game.. quake 1.. the jump from software to 3d graphics simply shocked people with how good it was.. so until we have all experianced an oculus or vive and seen VR for ourselves.. all you are doing is spouting your ignorance and claiming it as fact.

Psssh, I waited and got an openGL card for Unreal. Never did bother with 3DFX and their BS proprietary drivers. (I think it was openGL? I don't remember. This was back in the day when you had to go to local computer shows to buy hardware because nobody carried this stuff yet.)

I don't have the room for the walkaround experience, so it's the controllers/external camera that are drawing my attention. I'm considering cancelling my rift order for one of these. Or keeping the rift order, and betting someone on eBay is willing to pay full price or more for it.

Yes, it's expensive, but when I was wavering on the Rift, my girlfriend said "isn't this what you built that machine FOR?". From what I'm reading, the Vive SDK is more stable than the rift, at least, it was. I'd be sticking to the Steam storefront, instead of getting an Oculus account and yet another platform to fiddle with. But it's $200 more than the already tough-to-swallow Rift. I've got a few days to decide before the Vive pre-orders start up.

It's $200 more, BUT it comes with the VR controllers, which Rift does not. They are essentially the same price with controllers.

I'm leaning more toward he Vive due to the STEAM connections, but Iam going to wait and see. Right now nobody has anything I simply MUST play, so we'll see who gets the killer apps.

Have the G910 as well. Love it. Used a Merc Stealth for years until it died. Steelseries is NOT as good as ZBoard was, and their branded Merc STealths suck. I ordered 2 and they both died in a week. Went back to Logitech. I like that some games light it up differnt colors. (BF4 comes to mind)

If you support/purchase any Season Pass DLC you are far too stupid for words.

Has there ever even been one that ended up being a "good deal" with enough content to justify that type of advanced pricing?

You could just stop attacking people for no reason, but you won't. It's not really what you post, it's how you come across when you do.

Huh.

That solar plant is very impressive. I shudder to think at how much it cost to build, but it's an incredible facility.

It reminds me of that tech bit that got pushed around a few years ago, about making all roads to have embedded solar cells. Sure, it's a great concept, but the cost???


Yeah, the cost would literally bankrupt the US. But hey, good job there, think tanks...?

They're still working on it. https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/solar-roadways#/updates
