If a liberal told this guy his house was on fire, he'd deny it, even as all his possessions go up in smoke.

If someone told you that a conspiracy theory from 30 years ago, ended up as factual, you'd still believe the conspiracy theory.

Considering the list of scientists include made-up people, people that don't exist, and whatnot.
As always you don't do a modicum of basic research on what you glean from 7chan, social media and breitbart nor do you source your dreck.
34 names were removed**. mere noise, much like your posts.

**"most of which were duplicates"
As always you manage to fail at basic research yourself. Let me know when you cross-reference the names vs the speakers at trans mountain. Since you're so good at looking up CBC articles, you shouldn't have a problem finding what I just said.

It's always nice when someone makes assumptions, then tries to pull the "but these sauces..." please. You should be ashamed of even trying to pull that.

Considering the list of scientists include made-up people, people that don't exist, and whatnot. It looks more like that the "fresh warning by scientists" is on par with a change.org petition.

By the way, don't let your pro-eugenics get in the way or anything. I mean even China has abandoned the shit you're promoting.

"Open your eyes"

Maybe if you did you'd see the complaint is that menu is only available in game. It does not exist from the main menu before starting. When you set everything up.
Yes it does. I just finished doing exactly that.

FYI the supposed fix for the "rockstar launcher exited unexpectedly" isn't fixed, it still exists. Had the same problem myself, and I had to roll back my mobo's firmware to AGESA 1.0.0.2 support. If your mobo uses 1.0.0.3(nearly all boards currently) the game still crashes.

We will never go to war with China unless we want to lose another war bigly. What a bizarre statement.
China can't field a navy to the same size as the US. Most of their technology is 20 years behind, even with all the mil-industrial complex selling their shit to China.

On top of that, their ground forces almost half have never fired a gun. What's more likely to happen is China uses excessive force like it has int he past. They'll go out of their way to seize it to stop it from hitting the outside, but it eventually it will What little of their political standing will go "poof."

But how the fuck is some indie developer going to cope with this? How would they make any money if after a few days they stopped making sales because everyone was just swapping around the same pool of used copies?
How did the music industry make ends meet by doing this? Or DVD's? Bluray? Records? Cassettes? That's the thing, the VG industry is one of the only cases where your purchase of something has no right-of-transfer. In fact, it's pretty much put a bullet in gamestop since digital sales of games have far outstripped physical copies even on consoles.

How do they cope? Offer value of buying something from them. Or make more of something, even small studios had no problems surviving the days in the 90's where PC game rentals were a thing.

I do feel like a lot of judges these days are making rulings that are outrageous and easily overturned on appeal in order to make headlines. is there no accountability on this?

for those who are "shocked, well, not that shocked" about this, lets just see where it ends up on who is right.
Judges doing that? It does happen. I'll point out the obvious thing, most reporting on legal cases is so shit, that unless you were sitting in the courtroom what's reported, and what is, are two different things. And when interest groups are against something, they'll twist anything to make it sound bad.

From the skimming of the original ruling in French(I didn't read the shit in the other thread yet), it seems that the judge has effectively stated that while goods are digital, the right of transfer is still a consumer right akin to selling ones property to another party. In turn, the ability for the consumer not to do so infringes on what is effectively the french first sales doctrine for any type of property, whether it be a house, CD/DVD, or cellphone. It's been a good 20 years coming.

How is it an echo chamber? Is that how you justify your crappy ideas by deciding no, everyone else is just a sheeple? Crap like you wrote seems to be more than welcome around here aside of the odd callout when people can be bothered. You people and your persecution complex are insufferable.
How many times has callout/outrage culture ruined someone simply because of an accusation? False allegations cause someone to suicide out because they couldn't take it, or they were found innocent and suicided out because the abuse didn't stop? Remember the bullshit over Nolan Bushnell and Matt Taylor? How many singular people offended over dongle jokes, politically incorrect shirts, and mining through someones history back 20 years to ruin their career, by creating a mob of offend-o-trons do you need anyway.

Mobs doing this shit never end well. I'd figure most people would remember stuff like the witch trials, claims of heresy, and deals with the devil which are of similar vein to modern socjus. With the original sin(take your pick of 'isms, misogny, and phobia'o'holics), shun the unbeliever, and attack those who left the church of socjus.

Censoring of Siren, possibly Riona(either bad model rework or deliberate raising of top from original), translation is more politically correct. 4:3 ratio locked even on 16:9. FMV's are 15FPS, 30FPS in gameplay, no 8-direction control, lower quality skyboxes and worldmap, some battle scene maps are lower quality then the PC release from 2000. No chocobo world.

That trailer was awful. Looks like Witcher: The Snowflake Chronicles. Knew they were going to trash it.

Clueless comment is clueless.
Brokilon dryads using spears, instead of bows. And Triss not looking young, chestnut haired, and looking like she got beat with an ugly stick, and Yenn looking like she either a 25 year old trying to be 35, or 35 looking to be 25 is obviously clueless. Did I mention the black ones armor yet? No? Sit back and enjoy the shit show.

They're really not even trying to stick to the books. Some parts of it look good, I agree. Other parts are like they decided to break out the stupid because Sapkowski is still pissed off that the witcher games were far more popular than the books, and he only took a lumpsum payment - despite CDPR offering him more when the W3 became an overwhelming success.

But isn't this common sense? Wouldn't you have your best developers on your best products? I'm certain AMD does that, as well, if devs can only focus on one product line at a time.
Yes and no. You'll want someone from the driver team that knows the optimizations in place, so that when the "teams in training" which are what B and C teams are, to explain how those optimizations work on the existing hardware without breaking compatibility. The other part is you'll want "what isn't broken, to not be fixed." Nvidia has a far longer history of serious performance drop offs between the various teams and it's been like that for years.

Remember when Skyrim was released, and there was suddenly a massive increase in load times on nvidia cards? Enjoying those changes that the driver team did, which then were hotfixed four times, and still wasn't working right. Yeah.

Breaking news: Developers don't 100% focus and optimize for ten year old graphics cards!

What you are saying (if true at all) is not what the AMD fanboys are claiming. The AMD fanboys are claiming that Huang instructs nVidia developers to insert malicious code in new drivers to slow down old cards.

This article here proves that such claims are 100% bullshit. There are lots of benchmarks on the web showing similar results. There are always SOME games, both on AMD and nVidia that will lose performance under newer drivers but the claim that nVidia is intentionally sabotaging their older cards is ludicrous.
It happens inadvertently, of course, with some games on both AMD and nVidia cards. Such is the nature of maintaining compatibility.

Breaking news: Developers don't write graphic card drivers and end-wrappers for video cards.(I'm kidding slightly) While I agree that there isn't any proof that Huang is inserting malicious code, there is proof that nvidia has engaged in shady shit just like Intel did. Creating faster pathways on the GPU die for particular benchmarks. They got hammered into the ground on the antitrust case on that one if you remember. But keeping in mind with this, driver to driver release nvidia cards seem to have a far greater drop-off in terms of performance than AMD cards do.

Yes, I remember that and they did so because the issue was super-rare and they could never reproduce it in-house. That's why they needed user PCs to investigate.
Ever since 3Dfx went down the toilet, I have been using nVidia exclusively and easily owned a couple dozen cards over the past twenty years. I, for one, have never seen a TDR in my entire life.
You mean besides the ~30k odd posts from different users just on their own forum? Most of which were fixed when the end-user increased the voltage of the GPU. Those cards at the time ran hot, and the only way nvidia could keep them from cooking themselves to death at idle was to lower the core voltage. Once they turned around and stopped lowering the core voltage, the problem effectively went away.

You should go look at their current offerings on video cards, they've just spent the last 2.5 tick-tock cycles cleaning nvidia's plate, because nvidia decided that the mining market was far more lucrative. By far more, I mean not at all. To the point that Huang was telling investors that despite the market falling out, the company is still profitable...really. Just to boil it all down.

The headline is based on AMD fanboy drivel that Radeons generally gain massive performance over time through the power of FineWine™ drivers while nVidia cards generally lose massive performance because Huang personally instructs his driver developers to ruin the performance on older cards once nVidia have released a new gen.

It's not really clickbait. There are a lot of AMD fanboys who are spreading these kinds of lies all over tech forums and Reddit. This article is doing a good job of illustrating how full of shit they are.

Know where this starts from? Nvidia itself, way back when nvidia had their own forums(prior to the security breach and shutdown) there were multiple posts from people within the company including members of the driver development team that stated when nvidia launches a new card, they shift the current 'performance' team to the new card, and leave driver updates and maintenance to teams B and C, who often downgrade higher performance for more stability. This isn't some grand conspiracy, there was plenty of proof posted on their own boards and the CM's even acknowledged that performance took a hit over the long-term.

Remember when nvidia was paying at their cost, to have people bring their PC's or have them shipped to them at their cost because of the TDR problems? That was back in the GTX500, 600 and 700 days.

Oh boy. Look at all these progressives putting illegals up in their homes. And they're telling everyone that expects people who want to emigrate to do so legally are xenophobic racists.

Brilliant. So smart. Guess you guys have it all up in the bag, should go ask the NYT if there is a border crisis these days. Their answer might surprise you.
